Disney’s Pixar’s Incredibles 2 Coming in 2018! Check out the New Trailer!

I am super excited about the news I’m sharing today!  Have you heard about the upcoming Disney Pixar’s Incredibles sequel?

Incredibles 2 hits theaters on June 15th, 2018 and after watching the newly released trailer, my family has already started the countdown!

Seriously how cute is this baby?!

Disney Pixar’s INCREDIBLES 2 Synopsis 

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

Create an Epic Captain Underpants The First Epic Movie Viewing Party

My kids love Captain Underpants!  We have all the books and have already preordered the “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie” DVD at Walmart.  As our excitement builds for the movie’s DVD release, I have started prepping for a perfect Family Movie Night Screening Party.  Complete with the perfect movie night snacks and DIY Captain underpants costumes.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Captain Underpants is perfect for a family movie night, with incredible voice talent of both Kevin Hart and Ed Helms.  Also, best of all this film has a lot of heart!  The story explores the great friendship of two boys and their love of writing and creativity.  This is such a great message for kids to see, while they laugh uncontrollably at the outrageous humor.

This movie is receiving A+ reviews and is certified fresh, so make sure you pre-order your copy of the Captain Underpants DVD today!

Snacks:

After we have busted out all the blankets and pillows in the house to create a comfy viewing area in the living room, it’s time to think about the best movie night snacks that are not only delicious for the kiddos, but also easy.  I’m prepping a party amid back to school and sports season, so convenience is important.  I headed to Walmart to stock up on Pop Secret popcorn and Lance crackers, both of which are normal staples in my home and perfect for a movie night party!

You can’t have a movie night without popcorn!  My kids are always pulling out the Pop Secret Movie Theatre Butter Popcorn when ever a DVD enters my home.  We choose Pop Secret because of the great butter taste, it’s delicious and a great quality popcorn.  The bags pop quickly and fully!  So, this will definitely be on our movie night snack bar.

DIY-Captain-Underpants-Party

I grabbed 4 packs of red plastic cups for under $1 at Walmart and cut underpants shapes out of cardstock.  Then I simply hot glued the underpants to the cups and filled them with popcorn.  This is a simple way to add some fun to your snack table!

Lance Sandwich Crackers are another snack that we will undoubtedly have on a snack bar table.  Lance has been making little sandwiches for over 100 years with two awesome crackers on the outside with incredible spread in-between.  These cracker packs have been a snack time staple for my family for as long as I can remember.  My Nana used to pack them in her cooler bag whenever my brother and I would go with her to the playground or for a picnic.  Now I always keep these flavorful, wholesome, filling, and portable snacks on hand.  They are perfect for school snacks, on the go, and when I need to keep a group of kids happy.

Captain Underpants Costumes

With snack handled and a viewing area full of comfy blankets and pillows it’s time to add some extra fun to your viewing party with easy no-sew Captain Underpants costumes!  Aidan got a kick out of these cute costumes and I know my nephews will be all smiles on movie night.

DIY-No-Sew-Captain-Underpants-Costume

To start with I grabbed a package of plain white underwear in the boys section of Walmart.  I made sure to get a size that would easily fit over their clothes. 
This takes care of the “Underpants” part.

No-sew-Captain-Underpants-Cape-DIY

Now for the cape!

You’ll need:
Red Felt by the bolt, 1 Yard easily made 3 capes so have it cut to your preffered length.

Large piece of Black Felt
Large Piece of Yellow Felt
Fabric Scissors
Glue Gun
Printable Template (Underpants / Cape)

Optional:
Velcro (if you’d like to add it to the collar opposed to just have a hole cut open)
Iron on Adhesive (if you want a stronger hold that will last in the washing machine, use iron on adhesive instead of a glue gun)

Create the Capes:

Cut the red felt to your desired length, depending on the ages of your guests.  I went with 24” by 32”.

Print and cut the free printable template.

Fold the felt length wise and trace and cut the capes neck hole and shoulder curves.  Once you have done this, you have a basic felt cape that can be decorated in countless ways.

For the Captain Underpants cape we I traced a large circle with the black felt, using a salad bowl and cut that out along with an underpants shape with the yellow felt.

Next, I hot glued the black circle to the center of the cape.  Then, added the underwear shape to the center of the black felt circle.

The entire process took me about 15 minutes, and if I had chose to use iron on adhesive or Velcro, the process still would have taken less than 30 minutes.

I can’t wait to see a bunch of little Captain Underpants’ smiling and laughing on September 12th!

Girls Trip is the Must-See Movie of the Summer!

While at the recent BlogHer Conference, I had the amazing opportunity to attend an advanced screening of the movie Girls Trip.  This was one of the highlights of my entire time at BlogHer – I haven’t laughed so hard in a really long time!  Within the first few minutes of the movie the comedy began and this movie had an entire room of women in hysterics for over 2 hours.

Girls Trip

Rated R

In theaters July 21 

When four lifelong friends—Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tiffany Haddish—travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

It was amazing seeing Queen Latifah back on the big screen as she is one of my favorite actresses and can always bring a movie to life.     

While the movie is over-the-top in some respects, it has characters that most women can relate to.  I often feel like Jada Pinkett Smith’s character Lisa, who is a busy mom who appears to have lost her ability to let loose until her besties pull it out of her.  I wish I had a friend like Tiffany Haddish’s character Dina who played a fiercely loyal friend who was the source of most of the comedy.  Regina Hall’s character, Ryan, is forced to find herself; while Queen Latifah’s Sasha has her loyalty tested.  These women’s stories are so relatable that it makes this movie tug your emotions in different directions while still keeping you laughing.

I honestly can’t say enough good things about this movie, it left me missing my old girl friends, wanting to take a Girls Trip without the kids, and needing a wardrobe change from laughing so hard.

Disney Pirates of the Caribbean Movie: Dead Men Tell No Tales Printable Activity Packet

DeadMenTellNoTales58b861a98de0d

Did you know that a new Pirates of the Caribbean film is being released?  I didn’t until last week while the kids and I were at Hollywood Studios. We went in to see One Man’s Dream and stumbled upon the trailer for the upcoming release of Pirates of The Caribbean Movie: Dead Men Tell No Tales and it was AMAZING.

My kids are beyond excited that a 5th Pirates of The Caribbean Movie is about to be released, and they walked out of that preview in a pirate frenzy.  Based off the trailer, I foresee this being our all-time favorite movie from this franchise! 

DeadMenTellNoTales590627428da17

The kids were so excited that we “needed” to go straight over to the Pirates of The Caribbean ride at Magic Kingdom (which meant missing the rest of the day’s fastpasses, ugh!).  Plus, the pirate excitement didn’t end at the parks, as soon as we got home out came the pirate costumes, the fool’s gold, and of course all of the DVDs.

The Jack Sparrow fandom has been on overload this week, so we started completing the Dead Men Tell No Tales Activity Packet.
Our favorite activity so far is the “Creating A Spyglass” this added a fun prop to their costumes, that they haven’t taken off for days.

Are there any pirate fans in your family?  If so, make sure you download the Dead Men Tell No Tales Activity Packet  and get excited for the newest pirate adventure!

DeadMenTellNoTales590627381ee02

Pirates of The Caribbean Movie: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be in theaters everywhere May 26th, so get ready!
It has a rating of PG-13.

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
