The Monthly Mom List | Cirque Night Out

Well, it’s been awhile readers. That’s on me, for sure. But, as I jump back into a little blogging, let me tell you it has not been for lack of trying. Turns out a walking, talking (well, jabbering) energetic 14-month-old isn’t interested in “work.” He doesn’t care to discuss your to-do list. In fact, even … Continue reading

Movie Monday | Jump Into a Sequel

I loved 21 Jump Street’s remake with Channing and Jonah. Loved it. I laughed, a ton. A ton. The plot was hilarious, the action was nice, the music was ballin’ and the humor was on point (am I supposed to say, On Fleek now?). So, naturally, 22 Jump Street was a must on my list. … Continue reading

Movie Monday | Boob Tube Binges

Slowly – and hesitantly – Mike and I have realized we’re super lazy. Yes, we love playing outside, we are both active members of re-league sports teams and we’re not out of shape, really. But, it’s come to light that our favorite thing to do is watch TV. We love it. We can’t get enough. Seriously. … Continue reading

Movie Monday | Won’t you be our Neighbors?

I think the reason I liked Neighbors so much was illustrated by the first few scenes in the movie. (and the fact that the main character’s name is Mac!) The call to go out by your not-yet-with-kids friends… The realization that, hey, we can just bring the baby… And then the frenzy of packing and … Continue reading

Movie Monday | The Grandest of Oscar Contenders

I am a huge Wes Anderson fan. His movies move quietly through my sense of humor, striking a chord (funny bone?) somewhere subtle and doing so ever so softly. Soft enough that I can’t help but giggle. And whether animated with George Clooney and Meryl Streep (The Fantastic Mr. Fox) or on a train (The … Continue reading

An Oscar Disappointment | Fashion Faux Pas and NPH

In a show of keystrokes… who watched? I dabbled in the live version with a semi-interested husband and a very hungry and latched baby, but recorded it so I could get serious about swooning over some red carpet raves. Sadly, there were but a few. And I don’t say that simply. Best Dressed : Rosamund Pike and … Continue reading

Movie Monday | It’s a Birdman, and he was super

Yes, I realize The Oscars have come and gone – and happened with about the same amount of nonchalance – but that recap will have to wait, so I can tell you guys about Birdman. I’ve heard the haters, I’ve listened to the reasons it shouldn’t have won, but I whole-heartedly disagree with them. I … Continue reading

Movie Monday | A Foreign Photography Monologue

Basically, this is what Ida should be classified as. The foreign film from Poland up for Best Foreign Language Film and Achievement in Cinematography seems to be nothing more than a collection of fantastic still shots. They are, indeed, fantastic. In fact, many of them I commented out loud that I could see them hanging … Continue reading

Movie Mondays … On Wednesday | Imitation Game On

I saw The Imitation Game back in December, so I can tell you that this review comes with over a month to process and appreciate just how great I really do think it is. I went into the screening with absolutely no information, other than the fact that it starred Benedict Cumberbatch and it had something … Continue reading

Movie Monday | 30 Days Till Oscars

It goes without saying, I am not going to see all of the nominees this year. It pains me, pains me, to admit it – not just out loud, but on the inside too. But, little Mac made other plans for our movie season. They involve swaddling and soothing, rather than popcorning and leather seat reclining. … Continue reading
