Happy New Year 2017!

Happy New Year! I hope all your hopes and dreams for 2016 have come to fruition and that you’ve turned your attention to making the most of 2017!

I believe in making resolutions; they give you the focus to complete certain tasks. Resolutions can be made any time of the year, and should be in some cases, but it’s traditional to make them for the fresh start of a new year and it’s all in good fun!

  1. Eat well, allow for 1 cheat day a week.
  2. Drink 100 ounces of water a day.
  3. Learn and perfect one braided hairstyle a month.
  4. Learn to actively listen to others.
  5. Learn to create bath/shower bombs.
  6. Learn to ease my temper.
  7. Meditate 5 times a week.
  8. Pay off my car.
  9. Play and complete 17 video games.

  11. Read and complete 17 books.
  12. Refrain from voicing negative opinions.
  13. Sing.
  14. Start a family.

  16. Start a memory journal.
  17. Start my own business.

Christmas Mood Movies and Specials

Cameron and I made a list of all the Christmas movies and specials we could think of that we love and have loved watching during the holidays. Here is the list so that we will never leave something out, or that others may benefit.

Ones that may not be appropriate for younger audiences are marked with a “*”, I marked some that may seem harmless but it’s up to the parents discretion.

Marvel Cinematic Universe List

Iron Man Poster

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a media franchise and shared fictional universe that is centered on a series of superhero films, based on characters that appear in publications by Marvel Comics. Cameron and I like to re-watch the released films and from time to time, especially before a new title is released, and we’d love to start watching some of the shows. To get us started, I’ve put together a list of all of the films and shows that currently exist and those that are planned for release in the near future.

Halloween Mood Movies

Viewers beware you’re in for a scare! Or…something like that…

Welcome to the spooky month of October my friends! This month hosts one of my favorite holidays of the year, Halloween!

If you’re looking to get yourself in the mood for the season, I (and my friends and family) have devised a list of “scary” movies we thought fit this time of year with a section of tamer movies for younger audiences. Undoubtedly there are many movies out there that are categorized under “horror”, but we tried to aim it a little more towards the supernatural for the sake of length. Originals and remakes were not specified as I normally enjoy watching both. You are welcome to contribute your thoughts on movies we may have missed or left out that you feel should be included.
