The New Movie Comedy LITTLE on DVD

The New Movie Comedy LITTLE on DVD
Looking for a new flick to watch? Do you enjoy comedy movies? If so, you'll want to check out the new Blu-Ray and DVD release for LITTLE on June 25th, 2019. Here's some information about the upcoming release and on the movie.

The big boss gets a small dose of karma in LITTLE, an inventive new twist on the “body swap” comedy. The film arrives on Digital and the all-new digital movie app MOVIES ANYWHERE on June 25, 2019 and on Blu-Ray™, DVD, and On Demand July 9, 2019 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Hailed by critics as “big fun” (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV), LITTLE shines a bright light on the incredible talent of the three female leads and shows the true meaning of Black Girl Magic. This light-hearted, comedic and heartwarming film on Blu-rayTM, DVD and Digital comes packed with lively exclusive bonus features including a gag reel, behind-the-scenes featurettes, a hilarious “mockumentary” featuring Regina Hall and a special “Assistant Survival Guide” presented by Issa Rae.

LITTLE is an irreverent new comedy about the price of success, the power of sisterhood and having a second chance to grow up — and glow up — right. Regina Hall (Girls Trip, “Black Monday”) and Marsai Martin (Black-ish) both star as Jordan Sanders — Hall as the take-no-prisoners tech mogul adult version of Jordan and Martin as the 13-year-old version of her who wakes up in her adult self’s penthouse just before a do-or-die presentation. Issa Rae (“Insecure,” The Hate You Give) plays Jordan’s long-suffering assistant April. Using heart and humor, LITTLE teaches us to not shy away but to celebrate the greatest and most authentic versions of ourselves.

Filled with laugh-out-loud moments from beginning to end and amusing bonus content, LITTLE makes the perfect movie for a Girls Night In! The film is based on an idea by Marsai Martin, who also serves as an executive producer, alongside Regina Hall, Preston Holmes (Girls Trip, Night School), and Josh Martin. Little is directed by Tina Gordon (What Men Want, Drumline), produced by Will Packer (Girls Trip, Night School), and also stars Justin Hartley (“This Is Us”, A Bad Moms Christmas).

Tropical Flower Punch Recipe

Tropical Flower Punch Recipe
I enjoy hosting a lot of outdoor parties during the summertime. Our guests really like to hangout in our backyard playing outdoor games or lounging around our swimming pool. My husband will toss burgers, steaks and hot dogs on the grill and we ask our guests to bring along a side dish. As party hostess, I'm always in-charge of providing the adult beverages!

Today's guest post recipe is courtesy of Sparkling Ice. I really like that this recipe utilizes coconut rum which I absolutely LOVE!!! It's the perfect summertime cocktail.

Tropical Flower Punch Recipe

1 cup of coconut rum
1 cup of mango juice
2 cups of orange juice
1/4 cup of grenadine
2 cups Sparkling Ice Coconut Pineapple
Edible flowers, for garnish

In a large punch bowl, combine the coconut rum, mango juice, grenadine, Sparkling Ice Coconut Pineapple and stir. Fill glasses with ice and ladle in the punch, garnish with edible flowers and serve immediately. If you're not serving it immediately...keep it chilled in the refrigerator.

HUGE Hornet Bee's Nest and Hive

Seven years ago we purchased an older home and have been renovating it for the past 7 years. There was a small Florida sun room that hadn't been updated or modernized since the early 1970's. We decided to demolish that room and build a new one.

Hubby started off by knocking down some of the walls and then was working on tearing down the ceiling when low and behold he found this....YES....a huge hornet bee's nest and hive up in the rafters. Oh my gosh!!! We had never seen one this big before!

After getting the ceiling panels down he hit it with bee spray to make sure that he killed all of the bees. He then waited for 2 hours and finally knocked it down and removed it. I hope you can see by my photograph how BIG that nest was!!!

We had noticed the spring, summer and fall the year before a lot of bee activity around the back side of our home but had never expected to find that up in the ceiling. Thankfully the room has been completely demolished and our new room is almost complete. I'll update the blog with some before and after photo's in a few weeks.

I'm deathly allergic to bee stings, so I'm pretty happy that the nest and hive is GONE. Plus, I don't have to worry about those bees attacking myself or my grandchildren anymore. Bye-Bye Bees!
