This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Beamly. The opinions and text are all mine.

I remember when LOST first was airing on TV.  I had so many thoughts and questions!  There was a constant stream of “Oh my gosh, does what she just said somehow tie in to what he just did?” moments, and I couldn’t wait to bounce ideas off my friends about what was going on.

Not all my friends were watching, though.  Crazy, right?  So I did what any connected girl would do in our day and age: I went online!  I searched for forums, boards, and webpages where I could see what others were saying about LOST.

The Show Never Stops on Beamly!

With as many times that we have, today alone, watched Disney Planes, I figured that it’s appropriate to be sharing some new Planes news!  There is a new trailer for Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue – one that we’ve watched roughly 30 times in the past couple of days.  Bubbles begs me to play it every time I pick up my laptop.

Bubbles isn’t the only excited one in the family.  I love that not only are they doing the sequel, but that they’re doing it so fast!  So often you have to wait years for a follow up to something great, but not this time.  Planes: Fire & Rescue will be in theaters on July 18th.

Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue - Dusty

Our old friend Dusty (voiced again by Dane Cook) returns to Propwash Junction excited about his racing career.  But when a fateful training run causes a career-ending injury, he decides to train with the Aerial Fire Fighters at Piston Peak Air Attack Base as a Single Engine Air Tanker (SEAT). The heroic, often life-threatening efforts involved are admirable, but sometimes seem impossible to master, especially when Dusty has injury that can’t be ignored. Continue reading »

While I absolutely love all the new Disney movies and characters, the Winnie the Pooh movies will always had a fond place in my heart.  There’s just something about that lovable bear, unlucky Eeyore, cute little Roo, and all the other friends in the Hundred Acre Wood.  I even still have the plush Easter Eeyore with the butterfly wings that my Gram bought me over a decade ago.

Disney Winnie the Pooh Springtime with Roo on Blu-Ray + Homemade Playdough Carrot

So when Disney recently offered to send us a copy of Winnie the Pooh Springtime with Roo – on Blu-ray for the very first time – I was excited to have the chance to share it with Bubbles.  She’s a big Eeyore fan and was happy to sit and watch it with me.  The Blu-ray packaging also comes with a free Springtime with Roo mobile that you can put together, and she was excited to work on that with me.

The Muppets have always cracked me up.  I remember watching them with my Dad as a little kid, and the 3D show at Hollywood studios has always been one of my favorites.  Of course, Miss Piggy and Kermit are icons, but I also love Beaker, Animal, Sam the Eagle, and the Swedish Chef.

Ricky Gervais, Miss Piggy, and Kermit the Frog on the Muppets Most Wanted Soundtrack #MuppetsMostWanted

A bit ago I was invited to attend a screening for the new Disney Muppets Most Wanted.  Unfortunately, we weren’t able to attend but I’m definitely looking forward to seeing it once we have a chance to get to the theaters.  With hilarious stars like Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Tina Fey, you really can’t miss.

Marvel’s Captain American: The Winter Soldier is in theaters!  I’m looking forward to my husband and I being able to catch it the next time Ashley is home and takes Bubbles out for a play date.  Marvel movies have long been some of my favorites, and I have heard nothing but amazing things about The Winter Soldier.

Captain America and the Black Widow #CaptainAmerica The Winter Soldier

While I really do love all the Marvel characters, Captain America has always been one of my favorites.  He’s devoted to his country, does the right thing, and values those who feel the same.  Plus, let’s be honest, Chris Evans is easy on the eyes.  And Black Widow gets some screen time in this one, which I also like.
