5 Fandom Friday: 5 Films I'm Excited For in 2017

Are you NEW to 5 Fandom Friday? Welcome and come join along! 5 Fandom Friday was created by myself and Super Space Chick in October of 2014, as a way to get all of our blogger friends keeping on task each week, building a community with our fellow bloggers and connecting with new and old friends once a week! We choose the topics, you do the writing! Let's get inspired together!

We have a GREAT movie theater here in Denver called The Alamo. It is funny, witty and serves dinner while you watch! I love going and getting a BIG Diet Coke, buttery pop-corn and french fries! I'm also happy to finally be done working at a theater! LOL So now it is just a fun time to me. Here are the movies that are on my calendar for 2017!

1. La La Land {out now}. If there was any movie out there made just for me it has to be this! LA, music and dancing! I am DYING to see this colorful adventure!

2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. {May 5, 2017}. The first GotG was and is to this day my favorite Marvel film. This one sounds, looks and laughs just the same! I cannot wait! I just made Ocean Eyes watch the first one for the first time {GASP!} and I'm still in love. I was so happy to share such a great film with him and have him be excited about it too!

3. Star Wars: Episode VIII. {December 15, 2017}. Episode VII was Ocean Eyes' and my first movie together! To have a new Episode was so exhilarating and with Rouge One being such a great story as well I cannot wait to continue on in their universe!

4. John Wick 2 {February 10, 2017}. Now this was a film that Ocean Eyes made me fall in love with! John Wick flew completely under my radar and I was super hesitant to even watch it. But as the good girlfriend I am, I bit my tough and ate my words! I am so excited to see this next one! Can you say Valentine's date?!

5. Beauty and the Beast {March 17, 2017}. I am so happy to be able to see Emma Watson again, to see one of my favorite Disney movies brought to REAL life and to have another excuse to hear Ewan McGregor's voice! LOL

What movies are you most excited for in 2017? Do we have any of the same choices?! Let me know it the comments below!

ALSO feel free to leave suggestions on what 5 Fandom Friday posts you would like to write about in 2017! You can see a complete list HERE. We can do some over again or new ones! I would love to hear your thoughts!

Everyday Cosplay: La La Land

I am obsessed with La La Land and I haven't even seen it yet! Ever since I heard the words: LA musical I can not get enough of this film! I've watched the tailer numerous times, I've talked to all my friends who have seen it and they agree, the movie was made for me! So until I actually see it...VERY SOON, here is an Everyday Couple's Cosplay for when I we!

First off I am a HUGE shoe lover! I just got some brand new black ones similar to the girls shown here so I'm off to a great start. I don't usually wear lipstick but when I do, it is RED! Now all I need is the perfect yellow dress and to convince Ocean Eyes to dress up with me!

Have you guys seen it yet?! Tell me what you think in the comments below!!!

Every movie date deserves a little cosplay!

Figuring Out My Place In Time And Space: How To Move In Together

Ocean Eyes and I met on December 6, 2015. We became official on February 2nd, 2016. I moved in on January 15, 2017.
My desk! Now I just need to hang stuff up on the walls!

How did we do it? How can you do it too? One word communication.
My NEW room!!!

It was tough in the beginning because that was something I was still learning. My ex-husband was not a very good communicator and so I never had a chance to hone my own skills in that department. Towards the end of 2016, the time came when my lease was going to expire. Ocean Eyes and I had to make a decision together. One night we went out for a fancy dinner and we communicated.
LOVE my cozy bed! {ps this is a spare room! We don't have separate beds! LOL}

We talked about alone time, expenses, chores, me wanting a cat, decorating, where all my stuff would go and home improvements. WHEW. But by the end of that dinner as we were waiting outside for our Lyft, we decided that we were both ready.
Our skeleton alcohol bottle collection!

So it began. I slowly started bringing my stuff over. And we slowly found places for my things. We bought book cases together, we re-arranged things. We moved out everything from one of the downstairs bedrooms, I painted. He made room for me in his bathroom. We fixed up the bathroom that connected to my room downstairs. It started to feel real.
Our awesome bar!

Then the day came when my apartment was empty and everything was in his place. I won't lie and say that I wasn't feeling nerves, then and now, but at least now I feel on a schedule and that is what matters most to me. I like having my time to write in the morning, making my waffles, having Ocean Eye's bring me coffee in bed, making my lunch and going to work. Coming home and making a Blue Apron with him and then relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book.

Now I can say I'm finally settled after two years of not. It feels great to be home. With Ocean Eyes.
