Some of my favorite movies are those based on true stories. I was looking forward to seeing On the Basis of Sex which is inspired by the life and early cases of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I went to the screening last night and the film did not disappoint. It was Continue reading →

I just got home from Beautiful The Carole King Musical and I couldn’t wait to write about it. It was a true delight! I want to write down the thoughts which are racing through my mind. I was aware of some of the most popular songs she composed, but did not realize how many of them I know. I have heard many of her songs hundreds, if not thousands of times! These are songs you hear interpreted by famous performers, as well as theme songs from movies. Some of these songs brought back memories of Continue reading →
Earlier this week, I went to see the preview screening of the Teen Titans GO! To The Movies film. I must confess I was not very familiar with the Teen Titans GO!, but as soon as I mentioned the movies to my nephews, they filled me in and were looking forward to seeing the movie. Teen Titans is an American superhero animated television series, based on the DC characters of the same name. The movie includes the characters from the show and is hilarious! It is not often that a movie surprises me. I expected to watch a movie about superheroes, Teen Titans GO! To The Movies is about superheroes, but these are very special and funny superheroes, not Continue reading →
Comedies are one of my favorite genre of movie. It’s even better when the comedy is inspired by a true story, as is the case of this movie, Tag. I watched the trailer for Tag and was instantly interested in seeing it. Then, I read the synopsis and was even more intrigued. Tag is a story about a group of five highly competitive friends which have played a game of tag from childhood into adulthood (for more than 23 years). One month Continue reading →
Arriving at the screening with my friends Susannah and Lorena.
If you follow my blog or me on social media, you know going to the movies is one of my favorite things to do. I usually make a girls night out or a date night of it. Since becoming a mom, going to the movies has Continue reading →
Since I write posts for this series on Friday’s, the week for these posts kind of begins on Saturday or perhaps Sunday. This week was busy, as they mostly all are, but I did get an opportunity to enjoy visiting a neighbor on Saturday (see note from that outing here) and we went on a family outing on Sunday. Alessandra was filled with joy during Continue reading →

Beauty is a subjective thing. Different people may have varying opinions about what is beautiful or who is beautiful. But, in society, sometimes beauty is generalized, particularly when it comes to women and the fashion industry. I am a fan of chick flicks, particularly when they are comedies. With everything going on in the world, and sometimes as hectic as our own lives can get, I think it is good to go watch a feel good, comedy! I had seen the trailer for I Feel Pretty and found the scenes funny! Luckily, I was Continue reading →

I enjoy going to the theater. In particular, I enjoy going to see Broadway shows and plays. I have been to Broadway shows in New York and in San Diego. The shows which come to San Diego are the touring Broadway shows, which are just as wonderful! For a few years, I went to Broadway San Diego shows regularly. Then, I stopped attending for a few years because Continue reading →
Growing up in a Mexican household (while living in California), I learned about Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead, the holiday celebrated in Mexico to honor the dead) at an early age. It was important to my parents that my siblings and I learn about the Mexican culture and traditions. They not only worked hard to teach us proper Spanish, but also to instill in us a sense of pride and appreciation for our Mexican culture and heritage. I am very appreciative to my parents for giving me this wonderful gift! I grew up in the United States, but I am Mexican-American, bicultural and bilingual! I feel I have the best of both worlds!
I want to be able to pass on this priceless gift to my daughter, Alessandra. So, when I got invited to the preview screening of Disney Pixar’s new animated movie Coco, I got excited! To add to the excitement and fun, I Continue reading →

One of the things I miss most since becoming a mom is going to the movies. I am sharing my feelings, so please don’t judge. There are several thing about my life which I miss since becoming a mom (that’s a whole other post, see here and here for posts I wrote on the subject), but of course having our baby Continue reading →
