Sweetness, Family and Fun with Paddington 2

We were invited to a sneak peak of Paddington 2. I love reading the Paddington books to my kids and we were very excited to see our favorite little bear on the big screen. Paddington voiced by BEN WHISHAW in the family adventure "PADDINGTON 2," from Warner Bros. Pictures and STUDIOCANAL, in association with Anton Capital Entertainment S.C.A., a Warner Bros. Pictures release. It. Was. MAGICAL. If you love London, you MUST see this movie. Paddington finds a one of a kind pop up book that is the perfect gift for his Aunt Lucy. It's expensive so he works to earn the money to buy this special book. Everything is going his way until he shares the book with the film's villain, Phoenix Buchanan. (Wonderfully played by Hugh Grant) HUGH GRANT as Phoenix Buchanan in the family adventure "PADDINGTON 2," from Warner Bros. Pictures and STUDIOCANAL, in association with Anton Capital Entertainment S.C.A., a Warner Bros. Pictures release. It only takes a moment for Phoenix Buchanan to steal the pop up book and frame poor little Paddington for the crime. While the kids were sad to see our favorite bear go to prison, it doesn't take long for Paddington to transform the prison into a magical place filled with marmalade sandwiches and life long friends.

What I love about the direction of Paul King is the innocence and wonder from the book that comes through in the film. It has a sweetness that made the kids and I happy to enjoy the movie together. There were big belly laughs and exciting action scenes all the while knowing Paddington's family and friends were close at hand to help him out when he most needed them.

Take the family to see Paddington 2. It's as sweet as a marmalade sandwich!

Ringing In The New Year WIth Netflix! #StreamTeam

*As a member of the Stream Team, I do receive free Netflix, BUT all opinions are my own.
It's no secret I'm training for The Miami Marathon. With 4 weeks out, I only had to run 12 miles this weekend. It was BRUTAL. I've never put in miles in sub zero temps. Let me tell you what happens. Even if you layer up properly, which I did, you still have a lot to contend with.

First, my water froze. #Bummer Then my Clif Bloks froze. They were more like throat lozenges. SO I just sucked on them. THEN, thanks to the shady Apple update, my phone died in my pocket. Bottom line, everything froze and nothing worked.

I have NEVER been happier to get home, climb into bed with a cup of hot chocolate and a warm fuzzy blanket and binge Netflix.
I'm almost through The Crown season 2, which has been AMAZING. There is so much history I didn't know and I find it fascinating to watch. The costumes, the sets the acting, I love it all.

Once I finish that, I'll be queuing up season 2 of Travelers. I am so excited this show came back for a season 2 and I can't wait to dig into it!

It's in the single digits now. I am in for a cozy night of ringing in 2018 with Netflix. How are you ringing in the New Year?

Sub Zero ... No Thank You

Don't get me wrong, I love the snow ...
but I could use a little warmth. It was -10 today. I'm cold!
