9/11 is a difficult date to ignore; not that I would want to.  That day’s tragic events are forever engraved in our minds and hearts.  Thoughts and prayers are sent out to all those impacted.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

I’d like to share with you an awe-inspiring film starring Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg titled 9/11, based on the original play, The Elevator, that centers on the events of September 11, 2001.

No matter who you are or where you were, that moment and the aftermath is indelibly etched in everyone’s mind.  I remember getting ready for the day, at work (in a financial institution) and freezing when the news came out of our little radio.  As unlikely as it was, we were fearful of being a target … it didn’t take long to get instructions to close for the day.  In reality, much of my life, around that date, continues to be a blur.  I only remember feeling horrified while watching every single second of every bit of news!IMG_2626The film 9/11 is based on a true story and chronicles the lives of five average, everyday people who find themselves trapped in an elevator during the events of 9/11 in the World Trade Center.

“It’s a story about really honoring those that didn’t make… and those that did.” – Charlie Sheen

SNATCHED Available to Take Home #ad #SNATCHED #SNATCHEDPaintNight

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has one amazing comedic team:  Amy Shumer and Goldie Hawn!  If you haven’t seen this summer’s not-to-be-missed comedy ‘Snatched’ then now is the time to pick it up on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

On August 10th I was invited to attend a Cocktails n’ Canvas Event specifically set up to celebrate the release of SNATCHED in the various take home formats.IMG_2383The evening was a wonderful experience for me … it was actually a first for me.  Considering I often goof up a straight line with a ruler, I didn’t think I’d be able to paint anything.  I was impressed with the end result and think I didn’t do too badly either.

About Snatched:  After her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Shumer) persuades her ultra-cautious mom, Linda (Hawn), to travel with her to paradise.  When the trip takes an unexpected turn, the polar opposite mother/daughter duo realize they must settle their differences and work together to escape the outrageous jungle adventure they’ve fallen into.  Schemer and Hawn are a “dream team not to be missed!” – Mark S. Allen, ABC TV

Embrace Your #BadMomsMoments Go See #BadMoms Today!

On July 29, 2016 Entertainment One Films released the movie Bad Moms and all I can say is: “Go See It”!

Disclosure: I have not been compensated to share this post other than the mentioned retreat. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Bad Moms is the latest comedy from the writers of The Hangover … Amy has a seemingly perfect life – a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career.  However she’s over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she’s about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other 0ver-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities – going on a wild, un-mom-like blinge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence – putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.

The Entertainment One Films team invited me to celebrate the release of BAD MOMS by joining them for a full day event on July 20th including an exclusive, private film screening, lunch and pampering at Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Chateau des Charmes.  What a full, fun day it was!

BadMomsRetreatGroupPhotoThe film is a definite must-see so put together a group of your girlfriends and spend a couple of hours laughing … you won’t regret the night out!  Is it worth all the headaches of trying to get a sitter?  Yes!  Is it worth having to plan the night around all the ‘to-do’s’ on your list?  Yes!  Is it worth making a quick box of KD and sneaking out the back door even if it means going out alone to watch the movie?  Heck yes!  Whatever you have to do, just do it.

I’m actually not in the habit of reviewing movies.  I don’t really want to give away anything about the movie.  My goal here is not to ‘review’; instead, I am passionately persuading you to take the time out for yourself, take some ‘me’ time, make the effort for a girl’s night out and go.  Mom (good, bad, or anything in between), you’ve earned it.  Has it been a while since you last contacted your gal pals?  Well, this movie reminds us how important it is to stay connected … we are not alone.

If you read my post thinking it would be a review, I’m sorry to have disappointed you.  I’m certain you can locate a review somewhere online.  I’m more about looking at the big picture (no pun intended).  There’s a reason why this movie is so funny.  I’m sure that there’s a few of you who can relate to every type of mom there is!  Personally, I can relate with each and every type of mom depicted in the movie.  So why is it funny?  Well, I think that we have all either done, or thought of doing, similar things at some point in our own lives.  We each can connect with every character, we see ourselves on that big screen, and we understand what it is like to be a mom.

Get out there ladies, and party like a mother!
