Can't Wait to See Sex Tape!! #BedroomSpice

Friday marked the opening of Sex Tape, starring the talented Cameron Diaz and one of the funniest actors I've watched on the big screen, Jason Segel.
When Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) first got together, their romantic connection was intense – but ten years and two kids later, the flame of their love needs a spark. To kick things up a notch, they decide – why not? – to make a video of themselves trying out every position in The Joy of Sex in one marathon three-hour session. It seems like a great idea – until they discover that their most private video is no longer private. With their reputations on the line, they know they’re just one click away from being laid bare to the world... but as their race to reclaim their video leads to a night they'll never forget, they'll find that their video will expose even more than they bargained for.
Can you imagine?! Technology fail, at its' worst.

Maybe you've heard of this little thing called 'sexting'...I think it's hilarious and so when I see funny sexting fails posted online, I can't help but laugh! Personally, not for me, but I know a few people that do it. I have seen some pretty interesting fails, whether it be with autocorrect, or sending the sext to the wrong person.

Just a few of my favourites:

 And just in case I ever do receive a sext....consider yourselves warned ;)

I can't wait to go see this movie, especially since the trailer makes me laugh every time. Haven't watched it yet, or in need of a good laugh?


For those who went to see Sex Tape opening weekend, I would LOVE to hear your thoughts in the comments. For those who didn't, what do you think of the trailer? :)

First Day of School, and Happy Canada Day!

I couldn't help but feel like I was 5 years old again when I walked up to the school yesterday for my first day of class. Uneasy, nervous, feeling especially small.

I managed to make it through the morning without being physically sick, onto the bus and to school on time (I'm horrible for being late.) I drowned out the people around me on the bus with my headphones, trying to distract myself from what I was about to do since I didn't have a great experience with school previously. We constantly moved around during my primary years and never being able to build stable friendships really took its toll on me mentally, to the point where I didn't know how to connect with people anymore come high school. So an eclectic mixture of music has always been a comfort of mine, and on this particular day SOAD and CCR seemed to do the trick. Not to mention a little 90's dance music (one of my many guilty pleasures) to top it off.

An odd sense came over me when I walked into that building. I said good morning to the woman behind the desk, and she smiled at me. I felt welcome and I felt like I was finally on a human level with everyone else that walked those halls...if that makes any sense at all. I found my classroom okay, but there were other students in it (which threw me of a little). But, it turns out they were in the wrong class, not me, so that was a bonus. :)

My instructor is way better than I expected. He is extremely intelligent, well-mannered, and has an amazing sense of humour. Plus, it helps that he cares about what he does. That showed through clearly, even just from this first class. One thing I noticed was he's a bit biased when he's speaking about certain topics. Not often enough to be detrimental to what he's teaching, but enough for me to notice. I can see us having some really intriguing discussions down the road.

There are only 3 people in my class right now, so that is very tolerable in terms of my social anxiety levels. I actually spoke up a few times, and felt completely free to answer questions if I could. If I had of had any questions, I'm sure I would have felt comfortable asking them as well. But I think my learning style is a little different than others. I tend to not have questions until the very end when I'm trying to piece together everything I just learned into one big picture.

It's a lot more work than I anticipated though. So much reading! One chapter a day, one assignment a day, two exams, plus projects in between, before this one is finished. I guess that's the name of the game, but goodness only knows how I'm going to get all of this done with a two and a half year old that thinks pen and paper are for her to draw with whenever they are out.

In terms of the blog, I have gotten a bunch of nothing accomplished this last week! It has been a week full of heightened anxiety levels because of the start of school approaching. Now that I've gotten through the first day, I am hoping that my anxiety will lessen and I'll be able to get at least one review done. I hate making people wait. It weighs heavily on me, but I have to be sure that I am taking care of my health first. I'll get there. :) I promise.

I'm sifting through my neglected inbox today, writing out this post quickly, and then taking the rest of the day to celebrate Canada Day with my daughter! It is so cold outside we are most likely just going to stay in, but I want to be sure to spend as much quality time with her as possible now that I won't be seeing her as much on a daily basis. I didn't realize how much time I would be spending away from her four days of the week. It kind of makes me sad, but at the same time, I am telling myself that this will better us both in the long run.


Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canadians!! I hope you are spending it however you want to.

I grew up on The Muppets, through and through. Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Animal, Fozzie Bear...they were all my favourite at one point! I am so glad this continues to be a classic, and can't wait to share this movie with Emily! Hard to believe we haven't watched it yet.
The Muppets are back in the globe-trotting, star-studded musical comedy adventure Disney's "Muppets Most Wanted", available on Blu-Ray Combo Pack, Digital HD, DVD, Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) and On-Demand Aug. 12, 2014 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.

Toy Story of TERROR!

Who doesn't love Toy Story?! This is one of our favourite Pixar movies, and I love the idea of a Halloween themed adventure for Woody and the gang!
What starts out as a fun road trip for the Toy Story gang takes an unexpected turn for the worse when the trip detours to a roadside motel. After one of the toys goes missing, the others find themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved before they all suffer the same fate in this Toy Story of TERROR!
Featuring the talents of original cast members Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack (plus many others!), as well as introducing us to newcomer Carl Weathers as Combat Carl/Combat Carl Jr., the Blu-Ray Combo pack also includes Toy Story shorts, deleted scenes, parody vintage toy commercials and a special teaser!

Which of these titles are you looking forward to the most? Which do you think your kids will enjoy?
