It's Music Monday! Let's kick off this week with some fun music to get us up and moving!

First up is Bitch, I'm Madonna. This is a fun video with lots of celebrities celebrating the phenom that is Madonna. I loved reviewing Madonna's newest album, so I'm excited to see videos starting to come out for these songs.

Inside Out is A Smart Romp Of Emotions

Everyone is talking about Disney's new movie, Inside Out and with good reason; it is a smart movie with a good story and memorable characters. But, if you've been hoping for this to be the movie you need to give you a break from your 3 year old's continuous replay of Frozen in sing along mode, I think you might be a little disappointed.

Inside Out is really a lesson in psychology and brain function told from the perspective of the primary emotions inside the head of a tweenage girl; Riley. Riley grew up playing hockey, and having silly times with her parents in Minnesota. When her dad gets a new job, they have to move to San Francisco, and everything changes. This is when "Joy", the leading emotion in Riley's head, is engulfed with the challenge of keeping Riley from spiraling into depression as "Sadness" touches Riley's once happy memories and turns them sad. This could jeopardize all the important things that are so important to Riley's personality, and could change her forever.

Sugar Free, Aspartame Free Mints From PUR, Save $10 With Coupon

I try to eat as clean as I can, though I do cheat every once in awhile. Even when I treat myself a little, I still make sure to avoid certain chemicals. One of these chemicals is aspartame it is often used as a sugar substitute, but research has shown some very negative side effects to it, so I'd rather choose more natural sugar substitutes.

In the past, I've told you about PUR Gum, and how great it is for a sugar free gum option without aspartame. Now, I'm excited that there is a sugar free mint without aspartame. PUR Mints are so good! They come in multiple flavors and are sweetened with Xylitol which is a natural sweetener that has 40% less calories than sugar. Xylitol has positive benefits, too such as helping to increase saliva and reduce plaque. With these benefits, I can feel good about giving PUR Mints to my family.

Wordless Wednesday, Rolling Stones Concert

After 25 years I finally got to see The Rolling Stones live again! Hubby and I went to Orlando for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary and see my all time favorite band at The Florida Citrus Bowl. We were in the cheap seats, but it was still an awesome show! They may be in their seventies, but The Stones have more energy than I do! They were running all over that stage like young kids. They rocked out with lots of great songs for 2 hours and I loved every minute of it!

Jurassic World Thrills Fans With Mega Dinosaur Excitement!

Jurassic World may not be what the original Jurassic Park was, but it's not trying to be. It is it's own story that pays homage to its heritage while creating a whole new chapter. Ultimately, it's a fun summer movie that gives thrills and T-Rex size excitement!

It's been 22 years since Jurassic Park opened its gates to the beautiful wide screen shot of brontosaurus roaming free with the unmistakable sound of John Williams' perfect score. I remember the amazement I felt at seeing these long extinct creatures brought to life on the big screen. I felt that same sense of awe in seeing the dinosaurs in Jurassic World. I was sucked into the excitement of it as if these technology created dinosaurs were very real and the people in the film were very much in danger.

Wordless Wednesday, Because I love Food!

I saw some of the best summer movies with my Gramma, and many of them had awesome songs. Here is 5 of the best summer movies songs from the 80's.

My Alarm Hadn't Even Gone Off Yet!

I love to sleep! I mean it. I truly love sleeping! My favorite thing to do on the weekend is sleep until noon. Unfortunately, today was not a day that I could sleep my morning away. I was scheduled to be to work at 7:00 AM. That's 7. In the morning. On a Saturday. I'm not even up before 7 on a normal work day.

When I have to set an alarm clock, I like to sleep every second possible until the alarm goes off, and thanks to the snooze button, I'm even sleeping a few minutes past that. I am not that person that wakes up and just stays up just because with an "oh well, I'm awake so...". Nope, not me. I'm the "what the hell?! my alarm didn't go off yet, why am I awake?, roll back over for another minute" kind of girl. I don't want to be awakened until it is time! I'm on a schedule people let's stick to it!

New Ant-Man Trailer! #AntMan

Until I heard about Marvel's Ant-Man movie, I didn't know anything about the Ant-Man comics so I really didn't care that they were making the movie. Then I saw the first trailer and I just had to know more so I nerded out on reading about the series, and now...I can't wait to see Ant-Man. I think Paul Rudd is a great casting and every trailer makes me more excited about seeing the movie.

Here's the latest trailer for Marvel's Ant-Man.
