Why I Will Be Sitting In The Front Row For Disney Pixar’s COCO

No Comments Disney, Disney Movies, Movies, Sneak Peak

I recently saw this trailer for COCO, a new Disney Pixar movie. I was immediately frozen. I believe in signs. I have for a long time. I look for the good ones that tell me those that have gone before might still be here, watching over me. This movie is a sign.

You see, my first sign with this movie is that my father’s name is Ernesto. He left this Earth far too early. Leaving behind two young daughters with only memories of his voice. The La Voz de Oro. And that is my second sign. He was also a singer in a marichi band and had a voice of gold. That’s what we put on his tombstone.

Ernesto Cornejo

 

My Father, Ernesto, is center. 

So already, this movie is speaking to me. Miguel (maybe the character would have been named Marisa if he was a girl) and his magical guitar, searching for answers on dia de los muertos, has so many symbolic reasons that I cannot be more excited to see this movie.

Count me in for front row seats to this movie. My Mom’s birthday is November 2nd, Dia de los Muertos. This movie is due out in November. Coincidence? I’m hoping she and my sister will come with me to see it.

“We are all a part of those that came before.” Never has a movie ever spoke to me this one.

No Comments Ad, Grand Opening, Mama Loves, Sneak Peak, Tampa, Tampa Bay, Things To Do

It’s coming to Tampa!  If your kids are huge fans- then you won’t want to miss THIS!

The hugely popular Hello Kitty Cafe Truck will be making its first appearance in Tampa on Saturday, February 8th at International Plaza at 10am t0 8pm (the Cafe Truck will be outside of the mall, at Bay Street). The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck is a mobile vehicle of cuteness that offers a delicious array of Hello Kitty sweets and special goodies to fans of all ages; it has been rolling up to festivals & events across the U.S. since its official debut at Hello Kitty Con in October 2014.

The yummy treats on board the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck will include a 3-piece Hello Kitty cookie set, a rainbow macaron box set that includes a surprise Sanrio character design, a 4-pack of mini cakes, and bow-shaped bottles of water. In addition to the goodies, a Hello Kitty Cafe mug, a supercute pink Hello Kitty Cafe t-shirt and the pop icon’s signature bow headband will also be available to purchase.

….and just added….a limited edition Hello Kitty for President frosted cookie! Hello Kitty kicked off her Hello Kitty for President campaign earlier this week, as part of the “Friendship Party” with a message celebrating friendship, fun and happiness. The specially designed Hello Kitty for President cookie will be limited to only 50 cookies per stop & guests who purchase the special treat will also receive a free bumper sticker.

Fans can follow the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter to stay updated about upcoming appearances and where to find these adorable Hello Kitty treats.

Based on the success of the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck, Sanrio opened the Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up Container in Irvine, CA, in July 2016, to continue to spread their message of happiness, friendship and fun through yummy goodies & beverages featuring Hello Kitty and other character friends. The Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up Container, located at the Irvine Spectrum Center, will be open for a year-long residency and offers a menu developed exclusively for the Cafe, and different from the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck.

More Than Just A Restaurant- Goody Goody Opens in Tampa, Florida || Tampa Mama 

No Comments Dining Out, Florida, Lifestyle, Mama Loves, Review, Sneak Peak, Tampa, Tampa Bay

One of the best evenings spent with the Goody Goody family and GrandDad as my date to the hottest ticket in town, especially for the foodies. I was lucky to be invited to a pre-opening of the famed Goody Goody, established in 1925 in Tampa (see map below for locations back in the day) and now revived by the famed 4th generation Tampa restaurateur, Richard Gonzmart. If you’ve lived in Tampa or even visited, you are more than likely familiar with his restaurants- The Columbia and Ulele– with more plans to add more concepts to his portfolio soon.

What’s Up Preppy?: Straight back to 1990 at Saved By The Max Chicago

No Comments Chicago, Featured, Grown Ups Only, Mama Loves, Sneak Peak, Travel

Last night was the coolest flashback. Hanging out at The Max and reliving all the Bayside HS memories we watched for years was awesome. For those who grew up in the 1990’s THIS was your show. You watched it religiously and soaked up every detail. (Not much has changed today as my pre-teen kids watch a few Disney shows and do the same.) Make sure you binge watch ‘Saved By The Bell’ on Netflix before you go to get to ready for the night too!
