Get Ready for Movie Night with Disney #PixarCOCO!

#PixarCoCo_005.jpg

Whenever we are really super excited about a movie, the first thing my girls say as we walk out of the theater is, "Mom when can we watch it at home?!" Coco was no exception, my girls could not wait for a Coco movie night. Well we've had Coco on digital for a couple of weeks now, but there is just something fun about getting the DVD too. 

#PixarCoCo_006.jpg

Thank you to Allied Contigo for the fun crafts and gifts. How cute is this COCO frame? I had so much fun painting it. Yes, I did it. I used it as an excuse to get some quiet craft time in for myself. Although, I think I'll go pick one up for my girls now.

Frames play a key role in Coco. For Día de Muertos frames are used to display photos of loved ones that have passed and are placed on ofrendas.

You can find these cute DIY frames at Toys-R-Us for $12.99.  The frame set includes: 1 Wooden Frame, Sticker Sheet, Foam Sticker Sheet, 2 Markers, 6 paints and a paintbrush.

Oh man, I have to say I haven't done something so challenging when it comes to crafting in a really long time. When I opened up this package my mouth dropped, the paint by number that I was thinking of was a lot less intense. But I was up for the challenge. And I have to say I was pretty proud of myself when it was done.

Isn't it so pretty?! I can't wait to hang it up on the wall. My girls kinda loved it too and they were really proud of me.

Giveaway: Two New Books, Disney's Elena and the Secret of Avalor

In this home, reading is not only one of our favorite things to do, it is one of the most important things that we do. When I was a kid I loved to read and from the moment my girls first learned to read, I could not wait for them to fall in love with reading the way I did. From my experience, the best way to get your kids to fall in love with reading is by giving them books to read that they are interested in. So, for now that's one of my goals- find books that my girls will love to read.

Watch FX's Funny New Show-- Better Things plus Giveaway

You know what I love? I love when a TV show is original and edgy, fresh and funny. That's what you will find in FX's new series Better Things. First of all, I am a big fan of FX's original shows, they are shows that you watch when the kids are in bed, because there will definitely be some adult content. I'm a Mom who can recite the soundtracks to one too many Disney Channel sitcoms, so watching FX shows make me feel like a grown up. Ah, I really love my Adult time.
Everyone knows that some days as a mom are better than others. FX’s new series Better Things sheds light on those days when you’re sleep-deprived and overwhelmed – and feeling maybe… perhaps… a little less than your best.

I am not a parent of a teenager. In fact, some of my worst nightmares involve parenting the teenage versions of my daughters. My little girls already have too much sass and attitude for my taste. 

This scene from above is very similar to what goes on every night around bedtime. This is the time when things start to calm down and the kids are at their sweetest and all they want to do is cuddle. And as much as I want to cuddle, I say no because if I do, I'll fall asleep and although it's their bedtime, I still have work to do. That is real life and I love that this show, is real. It makes real life seem bearable because everyone else is going through it too. 

Make sure you catch FX's Better Things on Thursday's at 10 p.m. 

Now are you ready to win some goodies? Being a Mom can be crazy some times, check out the trailer for Better Things and then leave me a comment below telling me what is your favorite part of being a Mom.
