A Rockin’ Piece of Rock ‘N’ Roll History: Million Dollar Quartet

A Rockin’ Piece of Rock ‘N’ Roll History: Million Dollar Quartet

Posted by: on Apr 28, 2017 | No Comments
This past Wednesday night, I had the distinct pleasure of seeing the opening night of Million Dollar Quartet  at the Segal Centre for the Performing Arts. I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY! This Tony Award-Winning musical is inspired by the incredible true events of December 4, 1956, when Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll", brought together 4 music giants (Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley) for one of the greatest impromptu recording sessions of all time. I Read more [...]

If you haven't yet checked out Julie's Greenroom on Netflix, RUN, don't walk and turn it on NOW. If there ever was a female role model who is strong, poised, talented, intelligent, eloquent and can own the attention of any room she's in (even if she's not actually physically in it), that woman is Julie Andrews! Julie's Greenroom is a show about theatre and creativity and freedom of expression. It seeks to teach kids that the theatre "does not discriminate" and offers something for every person: Read more [...]

Shopkins, Shopkins, Shopkins... If you have a kid between the ages of 4 and 10, I'd say you know exactly what I'm talking about. It seems this collectible toy craze is EVERYWHERE! While, as a mother, I don't completely understand it, I can definitely relate as a former Pogs (remember Pogs?!) addict and Sticker Collector/trader. Collecting and swapping has always been a thing (think baseball cards and Beanie Babies), and it seems Shopkins is the new hot trend, at least for now. A few weeks ago, Read more [...]

First it was Dora... Then came Paw Patrol. NOW there is only Mia and Me. What is Mia and Me? Funny you should ask. Mia and Me is the ONLY show either of my children want to watch these days on Netflix. Why? I honestly could not tell you. One day, my daughter was at a playdate with my niece, and they watched this show together, and that was the end of any and all alternatives to Mia and Me. It's half live-action, half animated, and it's honestly not all bad. I'm sure I would Read more [...]

Family couch cuddles, car-ride sing-alongs and everything in between. Our best memories as a family of four are being made when we're just together, enjoying and living in the moment. It beats planned excursions, exciting days out and parties. My favourite moments with my husband and little ones are the ones that are most unexpected (and tend to leave us giggling or belly laughing). Music is such an important part of the memories we're making and of the memories I have of my family from when I was Read more [...]

I've said it before, and I'll say it forever: books are sacred and special in our house. Now that she has a little brother to share her Mommy and Daddy with, story time before bed has become an even more special and important time for our daughter. It's the time that we get to cuddle in her big girl bed, snuggled under the covers and have time that's just for US. Yes, we have the classics, new and old, to choose from, but we also love to discover new and hidden gems to add to our repertoire. Little Read more [...]

I have to start this post by saying that Full House DEFINED my childhood. When they announced that the show was ending  in 1995, 10-year-old Jordana actually wrote passionate, heart-wrenching letters to the studio and the producers begging and pleading that they please please please reconsider. Didn't they know how much the show meant to kids like me? How important it was for us to have role models like the Tanner Girls to look to? How else would I learn my way through being a tween- Blossom was Read more [...]
