Beauties and the Beast #ThrowbackThursday

A few years ago we did a family vacation to Disney and had a blast. The only thing we didn’t like was coming back to the aftermath of a snow and ice storm and having to chip and dig our way into the driveway!

One of the hightlights of the trip was our dinner at the Be Our Guest restaurant and meeting the beast! From the moment my best bud and I walked into the castle, we were enchanted. Of course, the guys were like “Where’s the food?”, but we were oohing and aahing over the ballroom ceiling, west wing and of course, meeting the beast in the library!

I’ll be back in the area for the RWA National Conference and if you’ll be down there, I’d love to get together with you!

#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 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

#ManCandyMonday Dan Stevens from Beauty and the Beast

It was a busy weekend what with the Liberty States Fiction Writers conference and a post conference movie date with a good friend and my lovely daughter. What movie? Beauty and the Beast, of course. The animated feature was always one of our favs (closely followed by Anastasia which we will be seeing on Broadway shortly!)

I wasn’t sure what to make of the actor playing the Beast/Prince. I have to say that the transformation at the end surprised me in a good way. I won’t spill in case you haven’t seen the movie yet.

So today’s Man Candy Choice is Dan Stevens, the Beast/Prince. (And FYI – Emma Watson was the perfect Belle!)

#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.

#ThrowbackThursday Beauty & the Beast

One of my all time fav movies is Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. I think it got cheated out of the Oscar for Best Movie the year it was nominated. When we went to Disney last year, one of the most awesome moments was being able to have dinner at the Beast’s castle. The place is absolutely amazing and you feel as if you are stepping right into the movie.

This is a photo of my daughter and me with our host, the Beast.
