See: Disney's Maleficent

Happy Friday!  I started writing a "Friday Favorites" post, but I had so much to say about one of my favorites from the week that I'm going to focus solely on...

Maleficent premieres today! Woohoo!  

My sister, Jessica, and I had been waiting for this for months, so we went to see it on Wednesday (courtesy of Disney), with 3D glasses and supremely high hopes.  The 3D was really cool, especially in the beginning.  The magical "moors" created for the film are beautiful, and the short tour early in the film was truly magical in 3D.

The rest of the movie was good, too, and I definitely recommend it for Disney fans.  It was funny, enchanting, and provided an interesting perspective on the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale as we knew it before.  

The dark film started off in a surprisingly violent way, with war erupting between two neighboring lands; this was to set the stage for the rest of the film.  A common theme from start to finish was how man's greed led to his d…

See Disney's FROZEN

Let me preface this by saying that I am a big fan of the old Disney classics.  I grew up a "Disney Princess," if you will, so I have high expectations for animated Disney movies.

I absolutely adored Frozen, and I'd gladly see it again!  This musical comedy is hilarious, contains a song performed by Idina Menzel that blew me away, and is entertaining for adults (even my male friends enjoyed), yet appropriate for children.

The cast includes some of my favorites, including Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, a…

Get Naturally Powered

Just one more post and then I promise to will consider stopping blabbing on about Chobani.

Recall last weekend, I went to the new Greek yogurt shop with Caitlin (below) and then again for a tasting event.

Leaving that night, I admired the corner location of the Soho store.  The store is on the left, below, with a vertical "CHOBANI" banner above it.  

But do you see the billboard in the sky on the right?

"Naturally powering Team USA."  Chobani has been busy during this Olympic season, powering our athletes and inspiring us!  They're an official sponsor of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team and have been hosting viewing events and empowering some superstars, like those on the box below:

Oh, what's that?  It's the box that was waiting for me when I got home after the tasting event.Great timing, ChoTeam.  Inside, I found everything I need to power my summer picnic!
