Fun At The Illinois State Fair: AT&T Go Phone Booth & Giveaway

This blog post was sponsored by AT&T but the opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

This weekend my daughter had a lot of firsts. She saw all of the following: dachshunds race, a sculpture of a 500-pound cow made of butter, Zulu warrior acrobats, and a man make a 70-foot high dive. Bella had her face transformed into a tiger’s through the magical application of face-paint.

Disclosure: I was provided an all expense paid trip in order to facilitate this review.

Kubo and the Two Strings opens in theaters TODAY, August 19th!

"If you must blink, do it now." is the first line spoken in the new LAIKA Studios stop-motion film, Kubo and the Two Strings.  Perfect advice for a movie filled with action, artistry and adventure.  Kubo and the Two Strings is the 4th film out of LAIKA Studios and directorial debut for LAIKA CEO, Travis Knight.  Not only is this film visually stunning, one would never guess it to be a stop-motion film, it will pull at the heart "strings".  Let's take a deeper look into the film!
