#FridayFun One Summer Night Playlist #AttheShore

Admit it, there are some songs that bring back memories every time you hear them. Whether it’s thoughts of hitting the open road on your way to the beach (or the shore as Jersey folk like to say) or of a special time in your life, those songs stick with you.

Wouldn’t it Be Nice by the Beach Boys is one of those songs! Being down the shore on summer nights brings the sounds of the Beach Boys to mind for sure. But this song is doubly special because it’s “Our Song.” It was part of the soundtrack for the movie Shampoo which was my first date with my husband. Being without transportation, we went to see the movie together on campus at Villanova. Brings back good memories every time I hear it.

FYI – this song is from the Pet Sounds album which is considered one of the best albums of all time. If you love the Beach Boys like I do, check out Love and Mercy which is the Brian Wilson story and has a lot on the creation of the Pet Sounds album. Fabulous movie.

Have a great weekend and if you haven’t done so already, don’t forget to sign up for the May 11 Cover Reveal event on Facebook.

#FunFriday A Wedding a la Beauty & the Beast

My two fav animated features are Beauty and the Beast and Anastasia. Seeing live action versions of my two favs this year has been AMAZING! I know I’m not the only who loves these movies given the fandom at the movie theater for B&B and the amazing lines and responses of attendees at the Broadway version of Anastasia!

But now, for some Friday Fun, a couple whose real live B&B wedding was gorgeous! Check it out. If you can’t see the video below, click here to see the Beauty & the Beast Wedding or use this link: http://7ny.tv/2qeiNNp

#FunFriday ONE SUMMER NIGHT from the At the Shore Romance Series

On a rainy and slightly chill Friday like today, my thoughts always turn to warm sunny days on the Jersey Shore. Sigh. Seems like the perfect time to give you a little teaser from One Summer Night, #1 in the At the Shore Contemporary Romance series.

This Romeo and Juliet story was such fun to write and I hope you’ll enjoy it as well and like getting to meet all the smart and determined heroines and sexy heroes in the series.

#FunFriday Anastasia the Musical is finally here!

If there was something we were waiting for more than the live action Beauty and the Beast, it was one of our absolute favorite movies finally making to Broadway: Anastasia!

My daughter and I loved the songs, the history and of course, the romance. It was such an awesome animated movie. When we heard there was talk of a Broadway show, we waited and waited and tomorrow, the big day is finally here! We are going to see Anastasia on Broadway! Yeah!

Here is one of the amazing songs from this movie. Click here if you cannot see the Anastasia video below or use this link: https://youtu.be/RkmYWdz75JY

#FridayFun Counting down to Beauty and the Beast

One of my fav movies of all time is Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. I was totally charmed by this movie when it came out and really felt like it deserved Best Picture that year. I am therefore counting down the minutes until I go see the live action version. I hope it doesn’t disappoint.

For today, I’m sharing this fun clip of 10 Secrets you didn’t know about this Disney classic.

#FunFriday A Reality Show about Kittens?

Yes, you read that right! And now thanks to Icelandic broadcaster Nutiminn and the Icelandic Cat Protection Society, you can watch the kittens in their dollhouse-like habitat. The habitat has hidden cameras to record the kitten antics and they are, in a word, adorable.

To see a live feed of the kittens at play, click here to visit Nutiminn’s live feed.

Just in case they’re asleep, and boy do cats sleep a lot, here’s a compilation of the best of the kittens! Click here if you cannot see the Nutiminn kitten video below.
