Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and for someone I know, it’s a very special one.  I’m so excited to share that my sister-in-law and my brother are pregnant with their first child!  So this Mother’s Day will be her very first one.

One of the movies I’m very much looking forward to – Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day – will open on October 10th of this year.  I love the book, and I can’t wait to see Jennifer Garner and Steve Carell bring it to life on the big screen.
