Bad Moms opens in theaters July 29th!

When Mila Kunis and Kathryn Hahn sat down to speak with us about their upcoming movie, Bad Moms, it was like hanging out with my besties.  They were down to earth, extremely funny and totally related to all of us moms out there!  I'm sure with them being moms themselves, they "get" us and this is projected on the screen.  Here are some highlights of the interview.

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you've imagined." -Thoreau

I've always told my kids to work hard, follow their dreams and most importantly; to be happy.  Because let's face it, life is short, way too short.  I preached and I preached but there was one problem, I was not following my own advice.  I was unhappy, it was very apparent.  I was unhappy at work and that unhappiness carried to my home life.  I wanted to pursue my dream of blogging full time but I was terrified to take that leap.  I was not practicing what I preached.

First Lady Michelle Obama hosted the 5th Annual Healthy Lunchtime Challenge and 'Kids State Dinner'.  The challenge invited kids ages 8-12 to create a lunch recipe that is healthy, affordable and delicious.  A winner from each State was chosen and invited to the White House for the 'Kids State Dinner'. Since Mrs. Obama became First Lady of The United States, she has been on a mission to help kids and families lead healthier lifestyles through her Let Move! initiative.  This year, the spotlight went beyond "healthy eating" to homegrown pride.  In fact, the lunch that was served at the White House was prepared from foods that was grown in the White House garden, a garden that was prepared and tended to by kids.  As Mrs. Obama said at the State Dinner, "How cool is that?"

KUBO And The Two Strings Opens August 19: New Motion Poster & Clip

KUBO and the Two Strings opens in theaters everywhere August 19th!  I have to admit, I have a bit of a soft spot for this film.  Last month, I had the amazing opportunity to fly to Portland and visit LAIKA studios, where KUBO and the Two Strings was filmed.  The KUBO fun didn't stop there, earlier this month I also took a trip out to Los Angeles where I pre-screened KUBO and the Two Strings and interviewed the cast, a full movie review and cast interviews are soon to come.  I don't want to give away any details just yet, however, I will say this is a magical movie you will not want to miss!  Check out a clip and all new motion poster for the film!
