#BadMomsXmas #Tampa Screening: Tampa Mama

No Comments Mama Loves, Movies, Sneak Peak, Tampa, Tampa Bay

I have been waiting for this movie to come out since the first Bad Moms movie debuted!  Not only do I consider myself a member of the Bad Moms Club, but I couldn’t agree more with this hillarious movie and how they depict our daily lives of chaos and triumph! I know I want to see  Bad Moms Xmas with a few of my closest Tampa Bad Moms for a Bad Moms Night Out!

BADMOMSXMAS

If you didn’t see the first movie, I can verbally replay the movie for you because I have it memorized! It is my sanity on a rainy day. And this new movie I am sure will not disappoint! How many of you are overstressed about having to make the holidays “that perfect” along with all the pressures of doing “all the things” for Christmas! HOLLLLAAAA!!! Come watch the what I predict will be one of the best holiday movies of the season!

Can’t make the screening, buy your tickets today and go see it with your own Bad Moms Club!

ABOUT BAD MOMS XMAS:

A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS follows our three under-appreciated and over-burdened women as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas. And if creating a more perfect holiday for their families wasn’t hard enough, they have to do all of that while hosting and entertaining their own mothers.

By the end of the journey, our moms will redefine how to make the holidays special for all and discover a closer relationship with their mothers.

Edited: As of 3pm on October 24, we were informed that the previously scheduled Tampa sneak preview scheduled for October 30th at AMC Veterans was canceled by STX Entertainment. We were told that they will not be hosting any sneak previews for this movie.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is EPIC || #GOTGVOL2

No Comments Disney, Disney Movies, Marvel, Movies, Review, Sneak Peak

I’ve been blogging for a while now and I also am addicted to reading blogs! Especially about movies! And in the past year, I have been fortunate to have seen some very cool movies before they hit theaters.

I had an AWESOME opportunity to see GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2 a few days before everyone else, but let me tell you…when I told my son we had media passes, he lost it! I have also been reading about all the cast insights and more from a few lucky blogger friends of mine who were picked to be red carpet bloggers at the premier! They got to interview the cast and I just couldn’t stop reading! Check out my friend, Vera’s blog, Lady and The Blog, where she dishes with the whole cast and more! So jealous and so excited to see the movie!

We had just seen Guardians of the Galaxy, for the 100th time, last week on our weekly Friday night family movie night! I got ambitious and made these to get the kids more excited to see the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2 on May 5th:

They were delicious by the way. And totally earned me some cool Mom points too!

And then we saw the movie…

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.

OMG! I just can’t spoil it. It would be so unfair. But let me tell you….I laughed, I cried, and all I wanted to do was hug that Baby Groot! It was far beyond what I was was expecting and I was expecting some great things from this movie! The music is epic and tells so much of the story just as it did in the first movie. Dive deeper into the characters and where they came from and how much they mean to each other. And yes, there are even better scenes than the epic dance off with Peter Quill or the dancing Baby Groot to the Jackson 5 from the first movie. The Star Lord will return!

So… now, I have officially hopped on the bandwagon of super galactic fan and will be going out to buy all the things “Groot” and more! Thankfully, there is a ton of super fun toys for me to by my kids (and I promise I will only play with them while they are at school) and my friend Vera, from Lady and the Blog, has an amazing toy guide already done here, so no need for me to recreate the wheel! Check it out here so you’ll know what to buy! But the first thing I am buying is the soundtrack.

And I hope you go see the movie. Like opening day. May 5th. Get your tickers now. Like right now. And bring some tissues. You’ll need those too.

Make sure to follow along with GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2 on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook!

I was invited as a member of the media to a press screening of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2 for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own.
