Storm Boy – In Theaters Now

Sorry for my hiatus y’all – As most of you know I am heavily pregnant with twins and they’ve been threatening to come for weeks now so I haven’t been on my blog / social media accounts as much as I’m trying to soak in as much family time as I can before a huge change in our dynamic (But it’ll be worth it and I cannot wait to see their little faces!)

With that being said I’ve got a LOT of content coming at y’all this weekend, but I wanted to start with one that I’ve been really wanting to write about. A movie that came out in theaters two weeks ago that was so deeply heartwarming I have to share about it.

Screen Shot 2019-04-19 at 2.51.03 PM.png

Storm Boy, the movie based on a classic Australian novel has been so beautifully remastered and came to life on screen April 5th, 2019. Storm Boy‘ has grown up to be Michael Kingley, a successful retired businessman and grandfather. When Kingley starts to see images from his past that he can’t explain, he is forced to remember his long-forgotten childhood, growing up on an isolated coastline with his father. He recounts to his grand-daughter the story of how, as a boy, he rescued and raised an extraordinary orphaned pelican, Mr Percival. Their remarkable adventures and very special bond has a profound effect on all their lives. Based on the beloved book, Storm Boy is a timeless story of an unusual and unconditional friendship.

I am not huge into dramas but I have not stopped thinking about this movie since I’ve seen it. It was powerful, strong and had such an amazing message for families. My Husband and I saw it together and he hasn’t been able to stop talking about it as well – We’re very eager to take our children as it has such a valuable lesson of courage and love that I think everyone could learn from.

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something to do this weekend, whether it be by themselves, with family or a date night… But don’t forget the tissues!

(I was compensated for this post but genuinely these opinions are my own, it was a truly amazing movie!)

Disney’s Christopher Robin Film & SunRype Family Sweepstakes

How many of y’all got really emotional when y’all saw the preview for Disney’s Christopher Robin In Theaters August 3? Meeeee…. For us millennials this was a huge part of our early childhood.. And now we get to share it with our own children.

If you haven’t seen the trailer it shows the soft hearted Christopher Robin we remember from our childhood but with adult dilemmas and during his most trying time is reunited with his old stuffed animals buddies. They quickly realize Christopher Robin needs their help to rediscover the joys of time with loved ones. If that doesn’t tear you up I don’t know WHAT will..  I won’t be missing out on this one, my kids are already eager to go see it. And they don’t even know the years of love behind it.. 

This will teach our kiddos the same lessons it taught us as little ones – Cherish those we hold so dearly to our hearts.

Now, I’m sure y’all have heard me mention them before but my favorite to-go snack company, SunRype, has partnered with Disney again! They are holding a Disney’s Christopher Robin Prize Pack sweepstakes where 6 winners will be chosen EVERY week! Entrants will have a chance to win prizes like a Petunia Pickle Bottom Winnie the Pooh and Friends backpack, 4 Fandango movie admission codes to see Disney’s Christopher Robin, a digital code to download the film’s soundtrack, a picnic blanket, a honey pot mug, a feature film poster and of course, a variety of SunRype snacks!

But we’re REALLY excited about this one!! Pixar’s Coco is based on the gorgeous Mexican holiday Day of the Dead where a young boy finds himself in the land of the dead and goes on a journey with his trusty canine in search of this great, great Grandfather who shared his love for music so he can show his family that music isn’t bad at all! My kids have already seen the previews and REALLY want me to take them (We definitely will be going 😉 )

We love SunRype snacks for their convenience (Especially with school back in session, it’s perfect for their afternoon snack and for a side for lunch!) and their amazing flavors! We’ll definitely be taking some with us to see the movie (Because $5 for an unhealthy treat is a no-go for our family!)

SunRype has re-launched their entire snack bar portfolio to be gluten-free, peanut-free, kosher and vegan within the past year, and are so excited to once again collaborate with Disney who shares their passion for health and wellness. Together, they can help deliver fun, educational and nutritional information around the power of healthy eating to individuals and families across North America.

Disney’s commitment to health and wellness dates back to 2006, when the company became the first major media company to establish a Nutrition Guideline Policy to associate its brands with a more nutritious portfolio of foods and beverages. The company has since marked every year of its Healthy Living Commitment with significant milestones, such as becoming the first major media company to launch food advertising standards for children, launching new content and experiences that inspire healthier lifestyles.
