Paddington in theaters January 15th {Chuck E. Cheese Giveaway} #PaddingtonMovie


The fam and I went to see an advanced screening of Paddington last Saturday. It was awesome! The adults loved it as much as the kids did, and as a bonus we got to meet the funny bear himself.

PADDINGTON arrives in theaters January 16! From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist. Starring Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, and Nicole Kidman.

When I saw this recipe in 5-Minute Mug Cakes: Nearly 100 Yummy Microwave Cakes I knew I had to try it, along with all of the other recipes, but this is the one I started with. Dessert rarely gets made around here unless we're having company over, for the simple reason that we can't - or at least shouldn't - finish it all. And nobody likes leftovers. Mug cakes are the perfect ... read more
