Comment number 23 (selected by random.org) was the winning comment. Congratulations Deanna! Please email me your mailing address so I can send you your prize.

Thanks to everyone else for your comments…especially to those who are new followers of Still Living The Dream on twitter, pinterest and facebook. So glad to have you join me on the journey!

For those of you who have seen the movie, did you notice the hidden gem in Disney•Pixar’s movie Brave? Check it out in the photo above. 

The Witch, an eccentric crone disguised as a woodcarver specializing in whittling wooden bear figurines and conjuring haphazard spells, showcases her mysterious and inexplicable knowledge of the future with a carved figurine of the infamous Pizza Planet truck, an iconic delivery vehicle that’s appeared in nearly every full-length feature film from Pixar Animation Studios since 1995’s Toy Story. Disney•Pixar’s Brave is in theaters now.

Pretty cool, right?!


Avengers Prize Pack Winner and Movie Review

Marvel’s Avengers opens today and you won’t be disappointed. I took my 10-year-old son to preview it and we both enjoyed the film. It took me a while to get used to the new “Hulk” (Edward Norton was replaced by Mark Ruffalo) but I felt like the entire cast came together well.

Love Iron Man. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is hysterical in the movie and cuts up the fast-paced action with his quick wit and sarcasm. And he’s easy on the eyes.

Yes – I said it.

Without spoiling the movie, there is one casualty that made me so sad. Hated to see it happen. Wish it hadn’t! You’ll know what I mean.


Scarlett Johansson’s performance as The Black Widow was only so-so for me. But maybe it was because I was so familiar with the other heroes from their movies I just didn’t feel a connection with her.

At the screening there were people of all ages and it didn’t seem to matter how old they were or whether they were male or female – everyone liked the film. Cheering and laughter throughout and lots of clapping at the end. I’d say it was a success and Jackson, my son, is ready to see it again and will probably go this weekend!

Be sure to stay past the credits. There’s a brief scene (of course) teasing what’s to come next. It’s not over, ya’ll!
