Lego® Batman Build Event


My kiddos and I could not be any more excited about the release of The LEGO® Batman Movie.

My youngest already has 3 of the LEGO® sets from the movie and still wants to get the whole series!

My 13 year old is mostly looking forward to the characters that will be making an appearance in the movie.

And I am psyched about getting spending quality time with my family while relaxing in the Marcus theater’s dream loungers.

Since we have to wait two more weeks to see Batman in action, we are going to head out to Barnes & Noble this Saturday for their LEGO® Batman Build Event.

Starting Saturday January 28th and continuing February 25th and March 11th, celebrate the release of the LEGO® Batman Movie. At each event, kids can collect two limited edition trading cards (while supplies last) featuring characters from the movie. The cards collected at all three events will unveil a special scene. Enjoy giveaways, make and play themed moments with LEGO® bricks and blocks plus much more.

Let me tell you, when Barnes & Noble does giveaways, their prizes are awesome!

Both of my boys have won prizes from different events. You’d think they hit the lottery! The Doctor Who prize pack and the Batman VS. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie posters fit perfectly with the other superhero decor in their bedrooms.

Spoonie Mom Blogs: Jaime Sanders of Migraine Diva

 

Jaime Sanders of Migraine Diva

When I first met Jaime it was through one of the many online support groups for people living with chronic migraines. She was a friendly face amongst the sea of migraineurs that always had insightful content on Twitter and Facebook. Her positive outlook on the worst of days is part of what makes this spoonie mom remarkable.

A few months back I finally had a chance to speak to Jaime about the exciting things happening in her life.

During our very long conversation I learned that we had quite alot in common. The 30 years of living with migraines, more failed treatments than successful ones, the debilitating physical/emotional pain all the while trying to be the loving wife and mom was something we both connected on.

Her blog is a true reflection of who she really is. She’s very open about the way each of her ailments complicate her every day life. This woman does not hold anything back when she writes her posts. I admire that!

Despite all of the challenging obstacles that Jaime endured in her lifetime, she knew it was those unfortunate circumstances that would give her the courage to help educate others about chronic migraines and depression.

This past August, she was invited to sit on the More to Migraine Panel during the BlogHer Event.

This is a photo that features the More to Migraine Panel at the 2016 BlogHer event. Jaime joined Dr. Susan Hutchinson, a headache specialist and migraine sufferer, Shannon Albert, a patient speaker, and Serene Branson, who served as the moderator.

She even had the opportunity to join an Excedrin campaign that focused on fostering empathy from those that might not understand why migraines are not just headaches.

This is one of the videos that Jaime appears in.

All I have to say is this woman is on fire! I see great things in Jaime’s future. Possibly a talk show with that stellar personality.

Jaime is a beautiful person on the inside as she is on the outside. I am truly honored to know this migraine diva and lucky enough to call her my friend.
