Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life

I’ve always loved watching Gilmore Girls. Every time I watch it, I notice different things I haven’t noticed before. This show is a guilty pleasure, among others (i.e. The Office…) The first time I saw this, Lorelai’s animosity towards her mother never really bothered me. The more I re-watch the episodes, the more I disagree with her life choices. When I see her being stupid I just want to yell at her and tell her not to do something. I want to tell Rory to stop treating Dean badly. I want to tell Luke to stop stalling and just ask Lorelai out already! 

When news of a return came out on social media I got really excited. I kept checking online to see when it was going to come out. When it finally came out on Netflix I watched Winter right away. It started with quotes from the original show and I thought that added an nice touch to the series. It felt like they never had that long break. It was like they picked up nicely where they left off. It was great to see everyone again and see Stars Hollow. Before the season started I had this vision in my mind of what their lives were going to be like. Lorelai was married to Luke and Rory was some famous news reporter in New York. But, as you know, life is not like that and things are never that simple for the Gilmores. 

The way Rory’s life turns out makes sense because, as they had mentioned before, she is just like her mother. I was taken aback by the cliffhanger because it just ended without any promise of another episode. I kept looking online to see if they were continuing it but it wouldn’t make sense because we already know what would happen. It took me a while to realize it. 

If you guys are huge fans of the show, you have to see this season. It adds a nice closure to the entire show. For those who have seen it, let me know what you think🙂

Bloom Voxbox for the month of May

There were quite a bit of goodies in this box. I actually did an unboxing here:

There was one item I really enjoyed. It was the Sunbelt granola bar. It was one of the best I’ve had. Maybe because it was covered in chocolate and had chocolate chips in it. It was definitely the best in the box. I wish I had gotten a whole box of food though, only because I’m pregnant and I can’t really use a lot of the products.

I wish they would have put 2 or 3 three in there. Or a full size box lol. You guys should try this out. It’s really yummy!

NOTE: I received these items complimentary from Influenster for review purposes.

This was a highly anticipated movie for us and we were so excited to see this. Last night we went to our local theater and it was packed. We were lucky to find seats in the upper portion of the theater because, apparently, a lot of teens wanted to see it on a school night. I remember not even staying up that late for a movie when I was a teen. Kids these days are so spoiled, lol. Don’t they have homework or something? Well, anyway, we were lucky enough to not get seats in the front of the theater.

When the movie started, I didn’t even notice that it had started. I thought that it was the beginning of another trailer. Haha, silly me. The movie starts with a little bit of a background story of the Winter Soldier. I’ve actually never seen the other Captain America movies. I’ve never been a big fan of him but their stories always mix together so I’m planning on watching the older films.

This movie focuses on the splitting up of the Avengers team. There have been complaints on how the Avengers cause massive destruction wherever they are. This film made me think about how true that is. You see these movies and don’t thing anything of it but lives get destroyed and people get hurt. It’s nothing like how Superman (in the old movies) handled things. He always tried his best to make sure that people didn’t die while he was trying to apprehend a criminal. It almost seems like the Avengers don’t really care about how much damage they cause just as long as justice is served. You notice this in many scenes and you only see how much people are hurting in this movie. They come forward and demand justice. They demand for the Avengers to take responsibility for their actions.

There was a document drawn up to keep the Avengers in check called the Sokovia Accords. Sokovia was one of the places where so many people got hurt and killed due to certain Avenger actions. Captain America didn’t want to sign the document and was completely against everything it stood for. Iron Man on the other hand, after being approached by a grieving mother, is all for the Sokovia Accords. There is this great divide within the team which eventually splits them up. I believe that the Accords were a good idea but maybe could have been tweaked. I don’t believe that there couldn’t have been some sort of negotiation about that. There’s just been so much death that the Accords were needed. Everything in life has rules. Even though the Avengers are sort of rogue agents that protect the world, they have to abide by rules too.

Captain-America-Civil-War

Both sides make great arguments for their side but I still think that they should have all signed the Accords. It would have made everything easier and there wouldn’t have been so much fighting and they would have caught the guy so much sooner.

What I loved so much about the movie is the humor that was blended in so nicely with the fight scenes. I also really liked that they have Antman and Black Panther in there too. I was a little taken aback by Spiderman but he didn’t fail to entertain. The fight scenes were just so amazing and I loved the special effects. Always a plus in my book. I can’t wait for the next one!

So this has been on Facebook and everywhere on the internet. Which side are you on? I’m obviously on Team Stark. Click below to choose your side.

 

Friday Crafts: 8-bit Baby Groot Tutorial

, , , , , , , ,

It’s been a while since I’ve dabbled in 8-bit art. I did a video in the past about perler beads:

This time I made an 8-bit character using Hama beads. These are more flexible because I used the mini beads instead of the regular sized ones. These are really fun to make with your kids and friends. You can make so many things with them like magnets, wall art, decorations for your notebooks. The possibilities are endless🙂 Let me know if you make your own Hama bead art and feel free to post them on my Facebook page!

Here is where I got all my supplies:

  1. Hama beads
  2. Tweezer

This is the image I was working off of. I actually added a little more green and brown to groot to make him look a little more put together.
