  • General Mills National Cereal Day
    Photo-A-Day #4339

    General Mills Cereals sent us a great package of fun goodies for National Cereal Day which is coming up on March 7th. They know that I am a huge fan of cereal and have celebrated National Cereal Day in the past. This year I will be home and it is a day when Allison and Eva do not have to go to school early so I will set up a breakfast bar and select some classic cartoon to watch before school. Oh, what to choose!

    Andrew “helped” me to unbox this fun set of items from General Mills and t made me even more excited. I especially loved having my very own engraved Ben Spark spoon! I love how General Mills is really running with the whole #NationalCerealDay theme this year. Just wait till March 7th and make sure that you stock up on your favorites!

    Yesterday, Owen Wilson (voice of “Lightning McQueen”) served as Grand Marshall for the 59th annual Daytona 500 in celebration of CARS 3! I’m very excited to see the new movie.

  • Beauty and the Beast

    Beauty and the Beast is hitting theaters in a couple of weeks and around here everyone is excited. Both Andrew and Eva are excited about going to the theater to see the movie. They both love the animated version of the movie and they also both like Emma Watson in Harry Potter. They always point her out when the commercials come on. Allison and I are looking forward to seeing the movie as well.

    The kids are going to be even more excited when I print them out the coloring pages below. They do love it when a movie has coloring pages, I enjoy it as well because I can print them and they can color and we can talk about the movie. We can also talk about the two clips below and for our kitchen aficienado, Eva she’ll want us to be getting her the Williams Sonoma Limited Edition Beauty and the Beast Le Creuset Cookware. Details on that after the clips and the coloring pages. Just click a coloring page to download the pdf file for that page.

  • Marvel LEGO Mighty Minis Iron Man vs Thanos
    Photo-A-Day #4338

    I woke up to the sad news of Bill Paxton’s passing. I’ve enjoyed him in so many things over the years. He was in everything and always a welcome performance. I especially liked him in Twister, Weird Science, Tombstone and True Lies. He will be missed. One of the roles that he had was on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and with the recent developments on the show it opened up to him possibly returning for a guest spot.

    I found a few things at Walmart today. A couple of Marvel LEGO sets including the Ravager Attack Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set. I also grabbed the Mighty Mini set with Iron Man and Thanos. I did a speed build of that set.

    I was surprised to find a Hot Wheels Character car for a DC character that I really liked, Cyborg. It is a shiny chrome truck and looks awesome!

  • Lightng
    Photo-A-Day #4337

    It was well past time for me to get some more professional lighting in my office so that I can make better looking video. I picked up the LimoStudio 600W Photography Triple Photo Umbrella Lighting Kit, Video, Umbrella Continuous Lighting Kit, CFL Photo Bulbs, Black/Silver & White Umbrella Reflector, Light Stand, Carrying Case, AGG2263 from Amazon.com through one of my favorite podcaster’s Amazon.com affiliate link.

    I’m just learning how to do all of this and so the process will be a bit slow, I’ll make mistakes and will, hopefully, learn from them. I’ll certainly pass along what I’ve learned to you!
