Disneynature’s Chimpanzee Film is A Must See! #DisneyPixarEvent

Chimpanzee, Disneynature's 4th movie, opened this past Friday in theaters everywhere and guess what?  Chimpanzee made over TEN MILLION DOLLARS in one solid weekend! Incredible!

So You Think You Can Bagpipe? #DisneyPixarEvent

This was one of the activities Disney/Pixar had planned for us while touring Pixar Studios.  We learned everything there is to know about bagpipes -- from the history, to the music and even the various songs you can play. Since we inhaled so much information in a short amount of time, I thought it would be a good idea to get my Flip Cam out and record it instead. I know the video is long (not too bad - 4-1/2 minutes) but it's well worth it. Enjoy! Disclosure: Disney provided me with an … [Read more...]

From New York to San Francisco: Pixar Studios, Footage of BRAVE & LA LUNA! #DisneyPixarEvent

Last week, I attended the Disney/Pixar Press Event  in sunny San Francisco and it still feels like a dream.  As I look at all the photos I took, my mind is going a mile a minute from all that we did in just three short days. DAY ONE: Upon my arrival at SFO (San Francisco Airport), I met with other bloggers in a van to head straight to our "home" for the next few days, Hotel Palomar.  Once we got to the hotel, I couldn't wait to visit Pixar Studios but thank goodness we had about an hour to … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday: Pixar Studios #DisneyPixarEvent

I'm in San Francisco today and because of the time difference, I almost forgot today was Wednesday. I'm not feeling too well. I either have allergies or a head cold so my nose is stuffed and my ears are clogged, thanks to the plane descending. I hear everything muffled and I'm a bit miserable. But before I keep rambling on, here's my photo of the week! Enjoy! … [Read more...]

The Muppets Movie Arriving in Theatres November 23rd.

Can you believe it's been 11 years since The Muppets last big-screen feature film? When I was a little girl, I grew up with all the Muppets so I get nostalgic just by looking at my daughter fall in love with the Muppets. I think during the Muppets is when I learned about obsession. As we all know, Miss Piggy loved Kermit so much, so much that she was obsessed. But she did love when Kermit would take charge. It was hilarious and all around the cutest thing ever! When Disney flew me (along … [Read more...]
