Mom's Night Out: Have You Had One Lately?

I'm so excited to share with you one of the cutest movies I have heard of in a long time, it's called Moms' Night Out.  Right off the bat it screamed to me "grab your girls and head to the theater!"  This fun romp is all about Allyson and her friends wanting nothing more than a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation.

Haha!  But I'm a mom - and most of you are moms too.  We know that it's never quite as easy as that.  In order to enjoy a little grown up girl time they must leave their husbands in charge and watching the kids for a few hours!   What could go wrong?

That just may be a dangerous question.  Check out this fun filled trailer - 

How FUN is that!?!?  Is that not totally would happen in your house?  I know - right?

Moms' Night Out Opens Friday, May 9th in theaters everywhere!  
Just in time for Mother's Day

Sing Into Spring Givaway With Walt Disney Records

It's been a long and frozen winter in Illinois this year, but we're finally starting to thaw out up here.  Even my tulips have begun to push through the ground in search of a sunny spring day.  I was delighted when a  complimentary collection of CDs arrived on my doorstep this week to celebrate the season with some fantastic music.

Sing Into Spring
The real winner of this collection in my daughter's opinion was the sound track to the highest grossing animated film of all time.  Disney's Frozen. We started out with the tunes of "Do You Want To Build A Snowman," and listened through to the Academy Award Winning "Let It Go" genuinely enjoying the music.  Other CDs that arrived with the set included great dance tunes from the Disney Channel Play It Loud, and fun stuff by Austin & Ally, and some super fun tracks that will bring the summer heat from Teen Beach Movie.

Along with the delightful package that I received from Walt Disney Records, as part of Entertainment New Media Network Walt Disney Records is sending some seasonal fun to two lucky readers of mine as well!  I've got CDs to giveaway (one set geared towards tweens, and one set geared towards preschoolers) so that you can pump up the volume and welcome back the warmer weather with some hot tunes.

The tween music set includes CDs of fantastic music from Frozen, Austin & Ally: Turn It Up, Disney Channel's Play it Loud, and the Disney Channel summer hit Teen Beach Movie! Use this first entry form to enter to win the tween music collection.

Google+ Hangout With Zachary Levi

I'm so excited!  Today I'll be hanging out on Google+ with Flynn Ryder himself! You can even watch the video below!  Actor Zachary Levi is promoting his current Indiegogo campaign to help fun the epic Nerd HQ event this year.  What's Nerd HQ you ask?

Nerd HQ is a fantastic fan driven event that happens in San Diego, California.  Run by Zac's company The Nerd Machine, Nerd HQ is a mini-con that offers alternative programing to the hustle and bustle going on across the street.  This unique event is known for connecting fans with their favorite actors in an intimate, and fairly unmoderated format. There are places to hang out, eat, recharge, test out some of the latest and greatest video games, play in a retro arcade, watch movies, listen to music, and dance the night away!  The best part is that most of Nerd HQ is offered absolutely FREE! And - when the panels do have a fee it goes completely to charity.

Exciting programing like the famous Conversations for a Cause and Smiles for Smiles help to raise money for Operation Smile, which provides life changing surgery to children with cleft lips and palates.  All this while giveing fans access to their favorite celebrities like no other event.

But what if you can't attend?  Well that's where Nerd HQ really shines!  Unlike many other conventions that offer a virtual pass for a price (usually the same cost as a full attendee badge), Nerd HQ offers all of it's panels streaming LIVE online completely FREE.  That means that even if you can't be there in person you can still participate, and this year Zac has said the folks at home will have even more chances to interact with the actors on stage.  

I'm supporting the #IWantMyNerdHQ campaign and today Zac and I will be hanging out so that you can learn more about it too!   Every $5 contribution helps and goes towards making something magical to bring you together with some of your favorite stars.   You can contribute at IWantMyNerdHQ.com we're a long way from the goal and we need your help!
