Our blog is going through a re-branding and overall overhaul. Please be patient as there will be some exciting things to come!
Actor Sean Astin was my guest this week on my podcast “Erica Presents…” One of my favorite stars to interview, he’s such a great guy! We always have a blast chatting. You can listen here:
Today was terrifying. Sam’s first school race for charity. What was terrifying about it was that parents had to run too and my husband was not available! I psyched myself up, prayed for rain and headed to school!
Luckily for me, none of the other parents wanted to run so once we got there we all decided to be cheerleaders instead (huge sigh of relief!).
I wouldn’t have been able to keep up with Sam. He was fast! He ran 1.5 miles and came in second place in his class (actually in all of kinder). He was awarded a medal.
During the whole morning, Andy made himself at home in the class. He fit right in.
And he also finished the race. He ran all 1.5 miles just like his brother!
I have to admit, it was a wonderful day! It’s a memory I won’t soon forget.
The dreaming loop is perpetual. It’s not like a movie with closing credits. Your dreams will alter, they will change, they will be redirected, they will stall, they will at times be put on hold and yes, sometimes they even die….but guess what? Dreams are the babushka dolls of our mind. Where there’s been one, there’s another, and another and then another.
I have to admit, when I first heard of this my initial reaction was something like “WHAT??!! Wasn’t there a golf tournament available?!”. However, if he wanted to bring attention to the cause, he definitely got mine!
Actor Josh Henderson (“Dallas”) – give me a moment while I enjoy the picture – is raising $5000 for the Somaly Mam Foundation and is jumping out of a plane at 18,000 feet!
I was THRILLED to hear about this today:
Production has begun on the animated series “Miles From Tomorrowland,” a space adventure for preschoolers. Slated to debut in 2015 on Disney Junior channels and programming blocks around the world, the series follows the outer space voyages of young adventurer Miles and his family. The announcement was made today by Nancy Kanter, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide.
Kanter said, “We hope this series will influence a child’s interest in science and technology by introducing them at an early age to the exciting world of space exploration, how things work and what lies beyond the here and now.”
Set in outer space, the series charts the missions of the Callisto family – 7-year-old Miles, big sister Loretta and their scientist parents Phoebe and Leo, who work for the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. Each episode features two 11-minute adventure-filled stories as Miles and his family explore strange new worlds, taking young viewers and their families on a journey that fuels kids’ natural interest in the universe, and at the same time reminding them that what matters most is what lies closer to home – the family bond.
“Miles From Tomorrowland” is a production of Wild Canary in association with Disney Junior. Emmy-nominated Sascha Paladino (“Henry Hugglemonster,” “Ni Hao, Kai-lan”) is creator and executive producer and Emmy-nominated Paul Demeyer (“Duckman,” “Rugrats in Paris”) is director.
I love Vince Vaughn. He’s on my top five favorite actors list. I just look at his face and laugh! I’m excited to see this film and hope to bring you the review later this year.
Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.
