MARVEL’S GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY ~ Peter Quill Featurette

guardians of the galaxy chris pratt

Only 11 more days until Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy opens in theaters everywhere! I have been hearing amazing things about the movie and Chris Pratt’s part as Peter Quill. We are going to be some of the first ones in line on opening day!

A special look at Peter Quill (played by Chris Pratt) from Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is now available.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

5 Things You Must Know Before Taking A Road Trip With Kids

5 Things You Must Know Before Taking A Road Trip With Kids

road trip button

Traveling with children can be a challenge for even the most seasoned traveler.  We love to take road trips, but this has not come without bumps, bruises, and road blocks along the way.  Six years ago, my husband and I decided to move our little family from the Memphis, Tennessee, area down to the Lafayette, Louisiana (Acadiana) area.  This, inherently, meant we would be taking lots of road trips.  Because I was raised in a big city and we now live in a very small town outside of Lafayette, Louisiana, I knew I would need to get out and about a lot; and we have.  I have learned a lot along the way.  The most valuable piece of information I have learned is to be patient and enjoy the moment.  After all, what is the point of making memories with your children if you’re too stressed out the entire trip to enjoy them?

Here are the top 5 things I have learned along the way that I think every parent needs to know before embarking on a great adventure with their children:

1.  Pack light but not too light ~ Everyone needs an outfit for each day you’re gone, up to 4 outfits for each person.  No matter how long we are going to be away from home, I never pack more than 4 outfits and 2 extra pairs of shoes for each traveler.  No matter if you’re staying at  a family member’s home or at a hotel; there will be a laundry facility nearby, use it.

2.  Give each child their own bags ~  This has helped TREMENDOUSLY throughout the years.  When taking a road trip, I pack a clothing bag and snack bag for each child.  As your children get older you will know when it is time for them to be responsible for their own things.  My children are 15, 9, and 7, so this works out great for us!  The main train of thought here is that it teaches individual responsibility as well as taking a load off of Dad and Mom.  Also, it keeps our youngest from jumbling up everyone else’s clothes while searching for a tiny pair of panties that have fallen to the bottom of the huge family suitcase.  Our children are each to grab their own bags when exiting the vehicle at our destination and they are each responsible for gathering their own things when we leave.  This is a huge help when we’re getting ready to leave!

3.  Pack kids’ activities in their bag ~  Each child’s backpack has several activities to keep them busy along the road.  They all have their iPad, 3ds, or Kindle with them and along with that we pack a coloring book and crayons for each child.  Even my 15 year old loves coloring while we’re on the road.  We also play fun games to see how many states we can find represented on license plates along the way and counting down the miles to our destination.  There are so many ways to keep them busy and that is truly one of the keys to keeping your sanity on a road trip :D

4.  Pack healthy snacks ~  It is so easy to stop at fast food restaurants during a road trip, especially when there are multiple children involved.  Stopping for fast food along the way isn’t all bad, but you don’t want to make every meal and snack a sodium and sugar packed event.  We try very hard to limit our restaurant eating to 1 meal a day.  We’re able to do this by packing things such as raisins, apple slices, bananas, nuts, pretzels, and sandwiches.  There are times when we must eat out more than once a day and for these days, I make sure there is at least 1 serving of fruit or veggies and 1 bottle of water between each meal.

5.  Stop often ~ We set an alarm to stop every hour and a half along the way.  Sometimes it goes over a little bit if there’s not a friendly place to stop.  One reason we chose an hour and a half is because sitting in one position for longer than 2 hours is not only difficult for children, but it is also not good for your leg health.  Planning ahead for frequent stops also takes the frustration out of hearing “MOOOOOMMMMM!  I need to pee!”.  You’re already prepared and have a plan.  We love rest areas.  Years ago, rest areas were not nearly as safe and friendly as they are now.  Not only are most rest areas very clean and safe, but many have free coffee and paved trails to stretch your legs.  Get out, walk around, and enjoy the scenery along the way!

New Trailer for BIG HERO 6 #BigHero6

New Trailer for BIG HERO 6

BIG HERO 6 new

The new trailer for Walt Disney Animation’s BIG HERO 6 is now available. I don’t know if we’re going to be able to survive the wait until November for Big Hero 6! My kids are SO READY for it to come out! They want to go to the movies, but they’ve seen all the kids’ movies that are out right now. This one looks AMAZING! I cannot wait to take them to see it :D

From Disney Studios:

With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.

Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action, “Big Hero 6” is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”). The film hits theaters in 3D on November 7, 2014.

Clean Eating Pear Quesadilla

pear quesadilla button

 

We have our latest creation on our clean eating journey.  I cooked this one up yesterday on a whim and it turned our FABULOUS!  My mother, daughter and I all loved it.  I made it for lunch and we all agreed it was probably more of a dessert food.  I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did.

Gather your ingredients:

4 whole grain tortillas (10 in.)
2 T raw honey
4 oz. grated low fat mozzarella cheese
4T  raisins
1t cinnamon
2t coconut oil
1 small pear, cored and sliced ( you can peel it if you like although it is not necessary as pear skin is very soft)

Get to cooking:  

  1.  Place tortillas on a work surface and spread 1T honey on each on two of them.
  2.  Coat bottom of large nonstick skillet with 1t of coconut oil and  heat on medium.
  3.  Place 1 plain tortilla in each skillet and sprinkle each surface with 1 oz  of cheese then arrange 1/2 pear slices over top, then sprinkle with 2 T  raisins, 1/2t cinnamon,  and another ⅓ cup layer of cheese.
  4.  Place 1 tortilla with honey,  honey side down, over  layered tortilla in skillet and gently press with a spatula to seal.  Allow to cook on medium for 10 minutes.
  5.  Gently flip quesadilla and cook other side until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer quesadilla to a cutting board and slice into quarters.  I use a pizza cutter :D
  6. Repeat 1-5 with ingredients left :D

ENJOY!

Clean Eating Fiesta Chicken Salad

fiesta chicken salad button

This was supper for us tonight and, WOW;  It was delicious!  All of the flavor combinations came together beautifully.  I will definitely be making this again.  I am also going to prepare more of the dressing for use in fajitas and wrap sandwiches.  Really you could use it in anything such as a veggie dip or eating on pitas!  I hope y’all enjoy it as much as we did.

 

Gather your Ingredients:

  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups frozen yellow corn
  • 1 medium poblano pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1. boneless chicken breast, chopped
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • ½ t chili powder
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped.  (separate the white from the green)
  • 3 romaine hearts, chopped
  • ½ cup grated low fat cheddar cheese

Get to cooking:  

  1. Prepare dressing first by stirring together your Greek yogurt,  chili powder, and white parts of green onions. Chill while you’re preparing the rest of the recipe.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Toss corn, poblano and potato with oil in a bowl.  Spread mixture onto a 9 x 13 inch baking pan and roast for 30 – 45 minutes until corn and poblano begin to brown and potato softens.
  3. While the veggies are roasting, add chicken to a preheated skillet and cook on medium high for 10 minutes.  Stir often until browned.
  4. Add cumin, beans, and 1/4 cup water to the chicken mixture and stir to combine.  Cover, reduce heat to low and keep warm until ready to serve.
  5. Remove veggies from oven and let cool slightly. Divide your romaine hearts between 4 serving plates and top each with chicken mixture, vegetables, sprinkle with remaining green parts of green onions and cheese and top with dressing divided evenly.

Dinner With A Movie At Studio Movie Grill #GoHouston

Dinner With A Movie At Studio Movie Grill

*My family was given this travel opportunity in exchange for our honest feedback.  As always, opinions are 100% my own and we only recommend places we feel are a great fit.*

studio movie grill

While on our amazing adventure in Houston earlier in the month, we stopped by the Studio Movie Grill.  It has been many years since I have been to a theater that serves meals to your seat and we were all excited about the experience!  The theater is located right in the heart of CityCentre Houston, which made me very happy.  We were able to walk around for a while before our movie started and do some shopping while letting the children run off their extra energy before heading in to sit still for two hours.  This was a perfect atmosphere after a big breakfast and before lunch!

studio movie grill houston garage

So, being from a small town in south Louisiana means that my children are easily impressed LOL  Yes, they LOVE parking garages.  The entrance to the Studio Movie Grill was a few floors up, so this was PERFECT for the kiddos!  Hannah, of course, wanted to park on the “very tip top” so we accommodated.

earth to echo

What were we going to see after all?  I’m so glad you asked!  Of course, the only kids’ movie that we had not seen yet was Earth To Echo, and we were all dying to see it!  The whole experience was really great.  We only ordered buttered popcorn and a drink for each of us and all of it was perfect.  I am a huge fan of popcorn at the movie theater, but this buttered popcorn was different.  I know what you’re thinking…”popcorn is popcorn”, but no!  This popcorn was different.  This popcorn was LOADED with butter and the butter was, well, butter!  It didn’t taste like the butter flavored vegetable oil that most theaters serve; this was the real deal!  Oh yeah, you know me, the thrill is in the small details and Studio Movie Grill did not disappoint.  Oh, and Earth To Echo was AWESOME!  It was a perfect combination of E.T. and Stand By Me, just like the previews said it was.  Next time you’re near a Studio Movie Grill, be sure to stop in and see what all the fuss is about and tell them I sent you :D

Royal Sonesta ~ A Touch Of Royalty In The Middle Of Houston #GoHouston

Royal Sonesta ~ A Touch Of Royalty In The Middle Of Houston

*My family was given this travel opportunity in exchange for our honest feedback.  As always, opinions are 100% my own and we only recommend places we feel are a great fit.*

royal sonesta outside Collage

We were given the honor of staying at the Royal Sonesta in Houston over the Fourth of July holiday this year.  This turned out to be one of the most amazing hotels we have ever experienced as a family.  When choosing a hotel, I often opt for the economy chains, partially because of the price, but also a large part is because they don’t seem family friendly.  This was not the case with the Royal Sonesta Houston!  Our entire family, all 5 of us had an amazing stay at the Royal Sonesta.  From the moment we pulled up to this elegant hotel to the moment we drove away; we were in awe of the attention to detail that is visible in every department with which we came in contact.  The Royal Sonesta is not only beautiful, but it is literally right around the corner from EVERYTHING you need or want in Houston!  In the same neighborhood with the Royal Sonesta are the Houston Zoo, Museum District – 18 museums, The Galleria – 375 stores and ice rink, Jogging or golf at Memorial Park, Williams Tower Water Wall, Theater District, Hermann Park, Sam Houston Park and Heritage Sites,  and the Uptown Park entertainment and gardens!  Surely you will find something everyone in your family loves just around the corner :D

chandelier

We quickly found out that the decor inside the Royal Sonesta was even more dramatic than the beauty outside of the hotel.  The elegance of the hotel is highlighted by the gorgeous bronze chandelier (pictured above) that runs the entire length of the lobby and lounge hallway.  This is, by far, the most dramatic chandelier I have ever seen!  Checking in the Royal Sonesta was also a breeze.  We were at the check in counter for less than 5 minutes before we had our keys and they staff was loading up our luggage to take it to our rooms.

food Collage

Just to the left of the beautiful chandelier was the Launch Cafe, which is directly across from the Axis lounge.  We arrived right in the middle of lunch and supper, so we stopped in the cafe for sandwiches, chips, cookies, and a drink.  I ordered the chicken salad sandwich and white chocolate/macadamia nut cookie and they were both heavenly!

bathroom Collage

Now we get to the good part, our room!  This room was gorgeous!  I was in love with the decor.  The colors were so warm and inviting, yet stayed with the elegant feel of the Royal Sonesta.  The bathroom (pictured above) was full of all of the small details that I adore!  I just love when a hotel goes a little bit above the rest to make you feel like they care that you’re impressed.  From the beautifully scented body lotion and shoe sponge to the retractable cord on the hair dryer; I was in awe.  Yes, retractable cords get me LOL

room Collage

The beds in this room were pure luxury!  We all rested very well and I was even able to get a little work done at this super comfy and functional office station.  Again, the decor and color scheme of this room definitely helped make us feel right at home.  The chair and ottoman in the corner were perfect for me to do a little blogging about our trip while peeking out the window and gaining inspiration.

pool Collage

Before we left Sunday morning, it was time to go test out the pool.  Besides, Hannah wasn’t going to let us leave without it LOL  I absolutely love that the pool was on the roof of the hotel.  This was very impressive to our little ones.  The view from the roof was amazing!  As a mom of young children, I am also a fan of the trend for hotels to keep the deepest part of the pool at 3 – 4 feet.  It definitely helps give me peace of mind to relax while the kids are swimming.  If ever you are in the Houston area, you will be doing yourself and your family a huge favor by stopping by the Royal Sonesta Houston :)
