Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” Live Action! FIRST TRAILER!!

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” Live Action! FIRST TRAILER!!

When it comes to Disney movies, there is one that stands alone, there is one that is my all time favorite- That would be Beauty and the Beast! I have been in love with the movie since the very first time I saw in at the theater. Since then I have watched it countless times with the kids throughout the years. We even went to see it on Broadway, NYC. So when I heard that Disney had plans to create a live action Beauty and the Beast my heart just crunched in happiness. I literally cannot wait for this to come out. My family knows about my obsession, too and even booked my Mother’s Day dinner at the Beast’s Castle in Magic Kingdom. So although there are no posters up yet, we do have a video to share and it’s a good one! Follow me for ALL THINGS Beauty and the Beast! Let’s wait for this one together!

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; six-time Tony Award® winner Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark Opens Memorial Day Weekend With FREE Admission for Military & Card Carrying Dependents

Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark Opens Memorial Day Weekend With FREE Admission for Military & Card Carrying Dependents 12:00PM Memorial Day Ceremony


 Memorial Day is a very special day in our house. My Dad, who lives with us served in WWII many moons ago. I still cannot believe he lived though some of the things he has mentioned. Throughout the years many of my family members have committed to the Air Force, Army and Navy, even holding the honor of Navy Seals! So when Memorial Day rolls around here it is an honor to be a part of it. I am proud to see that Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark holds the same honor for the military that our family does.

This year  Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark, Pennsylvania’s biggest waterpark located at Camelback Resort in the Pocono Mountains, will officially open for the summer season on Saturday, May 28, 2016. Camelback Resort will be honoring U.S soldiers, military members and their families with a full-day free admission to Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark during the Memorial Day Weekend from Saturday, May 28 to Monday, May 30, 2016. A ceremony honoring Camelbeach park guests who have served in the military will be held on Monday, May 30th at 12:00PM on the waterpark grounds in front of the Sullivan Chair Lift.

 “We are honored to offer free admission to those who have served, as well as their families, on Memorial Day weekend,” states Brian Czarnecki, vice president of sales & marketing. “We invite our military guests and all Camelbeach visitors to join us for a special Memorial Day Ceremony to honor our U.S. Troops and take pause to recognize their sacrifice and their service.”

 Active military and their family are eligible for a full-day free park admission when they present their valid Military I.D. and dependent cards at the ticket window. Veterans with a DD-214 and/or an active driver’s license with veteran’s designation logo are also offered a free full-day park admission. Camelbeach offers all active military members and their card-carrying dependents along with retired members a discounted ticket rate of $34.99 all summer long.


 A vast departure from the typical concrete waterpark environment, Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark is located at the base of Camelback Mountain. Families and waterpark enthusiasts will be submerged in unparalleled summer fun and entertainment with nearly 40 rides, slides and water attractions. In June, Camelbeach will unveil the new attraction, Mummy’s Oasis, an innovative new family-friendly fun water play zone designed especially for the toddlers and young children with their “mummies” and daddy’s.

 Waterpark favorites include the acclaimed FlowRider surfing simulator, Vortex & Spin Cycle – the only duo bowl slides in the US, and Titan, a family raft ride that runs the length of nearly three football fields and serpentines down the natural slope of Camelback Mountain.

A high demand offering at Camelbeach are the 41 private cabanas that offer guests their own private oasis. Cabana service includes a fresh fruit basket in the morning, dessert tray in the afternoon and wait service all day. Regular Cabanas can accommodate up to six and are located at the Olympic Pool & Pharaoh’s Phortress. Deluxe Cabanas, located at Kahuna Lagoon wavepool, can accommodate up to ten and have a fan and a refrigerator stocked with cold bottled water.

 On the dryer side, Sullivan Sky Ride takes guests on a mountain base to summit chairlift ride offering a bird’s eye view of Camelbeach Mountain waterpark and potential wildlife sightings. Coupled with Camelback Mountain Adventures, 100+ aerial obstacle TreeTops Adventure Course, Freefall airbag attraction and the 4,000 ft. twin Soaring Camel Zip-Flyers and Pennsylvania’s only Appalachian Express Mountain Coaster, Camelback Resort delivers a combination of thrill and relaxation in a family-friendly mountain setting.

 The perennial winner of TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence, Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark is conveniently located just 90 minutes from New York City and Philadelphia, 2 miles off Interstate 80, in the Pocono Mountains at 301 Resort Drive, Tannersville, Pa.

Pfizer Healthcare Is There For Your Family! #SickJustGotReal #MomLife

Giveaway: Pfizer Healthcare Is There For Your Family! Sick Just Got Real robitussin If you know anything about my family and kids, someone is always sick. Not sure why, but we can catch a bug if it’s a million miles away. With saying that my kids are no strangers to meds. As a mom, I like to choose something that works and I can rely on. I don’t want something I am going to have to give a million doses of or worry about overmedicating. After momming for so many years I have some great tips for sickies in the house. 1) Always make sure to take their temp the minute they wake up and at the end of the 6 hours before giving a new dose of meds.  This way you can see how high the fever is or if it is dropping. 2). Keep ice pops on hand! – They come in sugar free, too. Sometimes it’s really hard to get your sick child to drink but it is very important and much easier than being on an IV at the emergency room. So, ice pops can help to save the day and they may even lessen the sore throat issue and the heat of the fever. 3) Try to keep your sickie away from the rest of the family. I usually end up with Emily in the living room anyway, it never works for me, personally but it is a good idea. 4). Good Luck. It is never ever ever easy to have a sick baby or child in your care. Life just kind of stops and all that matters is that the cough stops or the fever comes down or they get back up and run around. Just know that we have all been there. The meds do help in most cases and they help the moms and dads, too. Honestly, I carry Children’s Advil with me in most of my bags and NEVER travel without an array of Pfizer meds. I’m sure like everyone else, you child is perfectly fine one minute and the next morning can wake up with a high fever or congestion. Pfizer is there for us.  5) ALWAYS have extra meds on  hand and never run out of tissues! Check out everything you need to know from the experts: http://www.sickjustgotreal.com/

We want a peaceful sleep. (PS This is not our house. lol. On vacation but we still take the meds along just in case.)
