You guys! My best friend is having a baby! I have been saying this for the past 6 months or so as often as I can, because I still just can't believe it.

As first time parents, my best friend and her husband are excited, very nervous and have a lot of questions.  #NewDadMustHaves #CollectiveBias

Tra-La-La! Just in Time for Summer- Captain Underpants Now in Theaters

Have your kids read it? Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey. I've seen the book around at the book fair and I will be the first to admit, I looked right past it thinking this must be a book for little boys. As a Mama to two little girls, Captain Underpants has not joined our book collection. Until now.

 Power of a goddess. Heart of a hero. #WonderWoman, in theaters June 2.

This one is definitely going down in the books. Not only did my girls get to watch the new Wonder Woman weeks before it came out in the theater, they got to hang out and watch their Mom (me!) interview director Patty Jenkins and Wonder Woman herself Gal Gadot. I don't think I've ever been so excited or ready to rave about a movie before. This one, this one is a game changer.  #WonderWoman

Refresh Your Summer Bucket List #RefrescaTuSummer

There's no denying it. Summer is here, are you ready? We don't have any big plans this Summer, no traveling for us. But I'm sure we'll find some fun stuff to keep us occupied. In fact, after talking it over with my girls, we've come up with our very own Summer Bucket List (find the Pinnable/Printable one below). The one thing my girls always talk about is having a Lemonade stand, but we're not going to have just any lemonade stand, we've got to add our very own twist.  Check out what we did using Minute Maid® Fruit Punch and cantaloupe.  #RefrescaTuSummer #CollectiveBias

Medieval Times is Teaching Kids to be Chivalrous

Medieval Times is Teaching Kids to be Chivalrous

We've been to Medieval Times a few times over the last few years, and even as recently as celebrating my daughter's 8th birthday earlier this year. We love everything about the Dinner show. It's familiar and for people like my husband, who have been going to Medieval Times since he was a young boy, it's a bit nostalgic. I just learned about their Matinee show, I didn't even know they had shows during the day. The matinee program is geared more towards school aged children and has an anti-bullying message. How cool is that?
