We Are Not Surprised!! - Records Fall As #STARWARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Posts Big

Those numbers are not shocking for this Star Wars Fan, I thought it would be even more - LOL. How about you?


 $238M Domestic, $517M Global Debut,

The Walt Disney Studios announced soon after the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens that it has set a new all-time domestic debut record with an estimated $238M. With a five-day international debut of $279M, the film has taken in $517M globally.

“Our sole focus has been creating a film that delivers that one-of-a-kind Star Wars experience, and director J.J. Abrams, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, and the Lucasfilm team have outdone themselves,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “To all of the fans around the world who not only came out in Force to make this such an exciting and astronomical debut but who treated this film as their own and helped preserve the experience for their fellow fans by not spoiling it – thank you, we do.”

SO here are the NUMBERS - ON tHe Way  to this galactic launch, the film has smashed several all-time domestic box office records, including:

·       Biggest Thursday preview gross with $57M.
·       Biggest Friday and biggest single-day gross with $120.5M.
·       First film ever to post a single day over $100M.
·       Fastest film to $100M and $200M.
·       Biggest December debut (nearly 3 times previous record of $84.6M).
·       Biggest IMAX Thursday night preview ($5.7M), single-day ($14M, Friday), and weekend ($30.1M).
·       Highest theater average for a wide release ($57,568).

Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted day-and-date internationally in nearly every market (except Greece and India, which open Dec. 24, and China, which opens Jan. 9) and set records in many. 


·       Biggest opening weekend of all time in UK (4-day), Australia, Russia, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Austria, Poland (3-day), Denmark (5-day), Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Croatia, Ukraine, Iceland, Serbia, New Zealand. Second biggest opening weekend in France, Belgium, Israel, Chile.
·       Biggest IMAX global debut of $48M.

The Force is strong with critics and audiences, whose enthusiastic reactions have powered a 95% Rotten Tomatoes score and an excellent A CinemaScore, with an A+ among women and younger audiences, for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

SO I'm thinking I wish the next one was coming out like next week. The cliffhanger at the end leaves me wanting more. I will however have to painfully wait and  go and see The Force AWAKENS AGAIN AND AGAIN, just to keep me going till the next chapter. Hurry up and write, film and release Episode 8 peeps.

This is one of my favorite pics of the cast

Sweet Tastings at Krispy Kreme - Delicious and Hot but only till the 27th!

After a long day - It was time to head to Krispy Kreme. We got invited to a blogger event to see some of the new Holiday Donuts at One of my favorite places. What I love about them is their doughnuts are so fresh they melt in your mouth. But, more amazing are the holiday characters and flavors of the season they create = Red Velvet, Santa Belly and Snowman doughnuts plus Peppermint Mocha Coffee both hot and iced varieties. The iced tasted like a very thick creamy chocolate mint milkshake, yum. The 3 seasonal were creamy and delightful. They would add to any holiday party and or dessert after dinner.

Get them while there HOT -- They are only here for a limited time till December 27th!! 
  • Santa Belly Doughnut: A yeast shell filled with Chocolate Kreme™ filling and hand-decorated with red and milk chocolate icings and a sugar piece belt buckle resembling Santa’s jolly belly. 
  • Snowman Doughnut: A snowman-shaped yeast doughnut with white icing and hand-decorated with chocolate and red icing. 
  • Red Velvet Cake Doughnut: A glazed, red velvet traditional cake doughnut decorated with burgundy chocolate icing, topped with a blend of Kreme and delicious cream cheese filling, and delicately sprinkled with red velvet cake crumbles. 
  • Peppermint Mocha (available only at Krispy Kreme Millenia)Rich espresso, dark chocolate and frosty peppermint, finished with whipped cream and a cheerful peppermint bark topping. Available hot and iced.

We had a great time decorating the doughnuts too - imagine getting to decorate doughnuts, the Snowman and their regular glazed with Christmas sprinkles and warm chocolate glaze. TIP of the day -- Come in when the red light is on in the window, they are making them right then and there. Hot off the conveyor belt of golden sunshine....

5 Great Toys! #WonderForge Has Some Cool Toys This Holiday Season

With the #Holidays almost here and time is growing short to get that fun and perfect gift for the kids, I have some great suggestions to help. I've teamed up with Wonder Forge to tell you about some really cool games. Wonder Forge is a company that makes awesome toys that offer quality experiences for you and your family. They have the same "Can Do It" spirit that I have always had - hence the name of this Blog. The toys are engaging the children physically, socially and creatively, creating a lot of fun and family time. I have worked with them before and absolutely love their products and I hope you will give them a try for your holiday gifts giving.

No matter if you are a Disney fan as I am or a Star Wars fan too, these toys will combine those loves and more. 

Make family game time epic with the Star Wars Pictopia Trivia Game, exclusively at Target! Prove whether you are a Padawan or Jedi Master when your knowledge of Star Wars is tested with 1,000 questions on the iconic planets, ships, villains, and heroes from a galaxy far, far away. This amazing game builds teamwork and will challenge your knowledge on all 6 movies. Sometimes you’ll work together and other times you'll answer alone. How much you risk to win the game depends on how well you know your Star Wars trivia! Some of the questions are hard if you don't remember the movies but, it's so fun to test your knowledge. Feel the Force questions add an exciting twist by revealing how much you sense about the other players, because the question asks you to guess about another players do and don'ts. This game is on the top of my list, it's one we will play over and over. 

Good Dinosaur Roarin' River Board Game is fun and exciting. It's a great game that teaches everyone to work together as you need to get past the rapids rushing toward you. It's a unique game in that either everybody wins or everybody loses, so no one feels bad. The board is 3 feet long making it easy for a group to play, it spreads across the whole table. It's great for young kids too, easy and not competitive. I loved the movie so this game makes it even more fun to play with those cute characters.

Strategy and suspense collide in the exciting Star Wars Star Destroyer Strike Game. With the new Star Wars movie coming out soon, I wanted to get a game with that in mind. This game is fun, intriguing and you will need to use your wit to win. It has a Star Destroyer in it that blasts lasers and makes evil Empire sounds trying to eliminate the Resistance. You have to get your heroes to safety (you pick one of the stars of the movie - Finn, Rey, Poe or Chewie) before the starship of the First Order gets you. You have set of 4 heroes markers for each person and only one has to make it to win. You try to stay out of the way of the Dark Side and outwit your other players, it's fun and fast moving but not easy. It's an amazing game that we really liked. 

These 2 next books are called The Disney IMAGICADEMY activity books. I love them because, they are tons of fun to do, the activities in the book have my favorite Disney characters making it even more exciting. 

First, The Frozen characters are teaching about Science.  Elsa, Olaf, Anna and Kristoff are all in the book as you explore world of science. Kids can do puzzles and fun activities and discover things, like how we see Rainbows. It's 60 pages of entertainment. One of my favorite pages is - What Makes A Shadow? This book ask questions that are interesting and kids get to discover things they perhaps always wondered about but didn't know!

Next, Mickey and all his Pals (Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Pluto, Goofy) teach us all about Animals in this book. These creative activities are so kids can explore and learn about animals, insects and more. 
In these 60 pages you learn about animal conservation, how animals adapt to their surroundings plus lots more. One of my favorite pages from this book is - Safari Adventure, learn about the animals and the savanna they live on.

Want More Holiday Ideas? from LUSH/Handmade Cosmetics

You know how much I love this company and it's products. They have a great selection, the store always smells great and the names of the products are so cool! If you have never been go in and see for yourself, the staff is very nice and helpful and I just love to try things in there. Bath and Body products are my fave so I got a few last time I was there at the store in the Florida Mall. They have very unique holiday themed products and I purchased some. I got Santa's Lip Scrub and Santa Baby Lip Tint both are red in color and make your lips ready for the holidays. The lip scrub is homemade and I really love that. Some of the ingredients it has are cherries, dates and cola to make it oh so sweet tasting. I love the smooth and silky feeling it gives my lips after I use it. The lip tint has no taste just leaves you lips a littler red than you started.

Another thing I love is their Charity Pots (see pic above), I bought one to support The Bunny Alliance because well I have one and I love bunnies. I don't want any more animal testing done by any company anymore. Go to their website to learn more about their cause - its to end the transport of animals to laboratories.  I wanted to let you know there are many causes Lush supports with donations, so check them out too. Tis' the season for giving :-)

Thanks for stopping by and if you need more Holidays Gift Ideas and Stocking Stuffers ideas too, stop by again and again. All of these products in this post would be great for any gift occasion.

I personally signed up about a week ago and I just received my first shipment and with two teens and working from home we do go through a lot of ink. One of my reasons for signing up was it was to time consuming getting the ink. Another reason was it was more expensive to keep running to our local office store to buy the ink cartridges there. This idea of home delivery subscription is brilliant, not only is it cheaper, I don't have to drive anywhere. Love this idea and I highly recommend it to you, especially with the Free Ink Offer till 12/31.

Thanks and Enjoy! Happy Holidays :-)
