Happy Dreamer Teaches Kids They Can Be Whatever They Want to Be | #Giveaway #HappyDreamer

My girls and I love reading. We sit together every night and they each pick a couple of books to read. One book that seems to always be chosen lately is Happy Dreamer. I am totally OK with reading this over and over because it really teaches kids a great lesson – that you can be whatever you want to be! This is a must have book for any family with young kids.

Getting to Know The Genuises Behind Guardians of the Galaxy: James Gunn & Kevin Feige | #GotGVol2Event #GotGVol2

As I am sure you all know by now, I am a total Marvel Fan Girl. I have been reading the comics since I was a little girl so when the MCU started, I was more than excited. My favorite characters were coming to life, and boy did Marvel Studios know how to do it right. So when I got the interview list for the Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 event and saw not only James Gunn on it, but Kevin Fiege too, my heart almost exploded. I wasn’t sure I would be able to get words to come out of my mouth being in the same room as these two geniuses. But what happened after the interview was one of the best moments of my life – more on that later.

Spoiler Alert: Kurt Russell’s Guardians Character Ego Isn’t Who You Think He Is | #GotGVol2Event #GotGVol2

When I first interviewed Kurt Russell on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, I couldn’t believe I was talking with a movie legend. Because that is what he is, a legend. Then when I discovered I would have the chance to do it again, I was blown away. Let me start off by telling you what a gentleman he is. The interview was set up with a table in the front and 5 rows of 5 chairs. Kurt insisted on standing instead of sitting so that he could see all of us while we talked. I mean, who does that? What a great guy.

DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games – Digital Release 5/9 & DVD 5/23 | #DCSuperHeroGirls

We are big comic book fans in our house. I have been reading comics since I was a little girl and so I have started my daughters already a little bit. But more than read the comics, we watch a lot of DC Comics shows like Teen Titans and DC Super Hero Girls. DC Super Hero Girls has quickly become a favorite in our house – I personally love it because of the lessons it teaches my girls. They have learned to be themselves and care about others a lot through this show.

Exclusive Interview with Three of Marvel’s Strongest Women: Mantis, Ayesha, & Nebula | #GotGVol2Event #GotGVol2

One thing that I really love about Guardians of the Galaxy is the presence of strong female characters. While in LA for the World Premiere I was lucky enough to chat with a lot of the cast. One of my favorite interviews was with three of the women who star in this film – Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula, Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis, and Elizabeth Debicki, who plays Ayesha. Pom and Elizabeth are both joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, and they both blew me away with their performances. Karen reprises her role as Nebula and brings so much more depth to the character in this film.

Dave Bautista Opens Up About His Struggle & the Set of the Avengers | #GotGVol2Event #GotGVol2

Dave Bautista is one of the nicest guys that you could ever meet. He was hilarious in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film, and I promise you he is even funnier in the second one. The character development was everything I could have asked for and I hope we see more of him and his history in Volume 3. Talking with Dave for a second time was eye opening, and I have to admit, I really felt for him at moments.

The show American Housewife is basically about my life. If you have not seen this ABC Show yet, then I highly recommend checking it out. I guarantee that you will laugh your butt off!
