Saturday night Canada was closed. Basically.
The Tragically Hip (“The Hip”), a well known Canadian band, held the final concert of their final tour in their hometown. Almost all of Canada watched, cost to cost,tears in our eyes thanks to CBC TV ( Canadian broadcast television). Cities held showings of it in their parks. People watched together at home and online. We all held The Hip in our hearts in a giant national Canadian group hug. No, this isn’t how Canada celebrates every Canadian band’s final concert, but this one was special.
I haven’t done a Mama Kat’s writing prompt in a while because 5 kids + summer keeps me really busy (less than a month until they’re back, btw, not that I’m counting) but today one of her prompts is “If you could have any super mom power, what would it be?” and I knew I had to jump on it!
Friday I took a girls afternoon with my sister & sister in law.. Shopping, lunch, and impromptu movie date. We had time to kill and Bad Moms was playing, so why not? Like many other moms we had seen the preview and knew we had to see it. The previews didn’t let us down. This movie was everything we needed, and more.
Bad Moms is a great movie that reminds us all that there’s no such thing as the perfect mother.That loving your children is much more important than what you bring to the bake sale. That you never know what anyone else is going through, even though we all keep that perfect outward appearance. It’s about finding mom-friendships in the oddest places with the least likely person. It’s about finding yourself in the chaos of motherhood.
If you are a mother you need to see this movie. It will make you laugh, you will connect with it and it will hit you right in the feels. Grab your mom-tourage and some tissues and head out to see Bad Moms at your local theater! You won’t be disappointed!
Bad Moms comes out on Blu Ray November 1st, you can pre-order Bad Moms [Blu-ray] right now on Amazon! You can also get your Bad Mom party on with the CD, available from amazon. **These are affiliate links. I get a commission if you purchase using these links.

After watching Pitch Perfect for probably the 100th time with my 14 year old I finally decided to introduce him to The Breakfast Club movie. Of course some of the concept was a bit hard for him to get since cliques like that aren’t part of his school experience. These days it seems like many schools have freaks, geeks and prom queens all being friends with each other. A scene right out of the twilight zone for us 80s & 90s teens.
Today’s Music Monday choice is, of course, Don’t You Forget About Me set to scenes from The Breakfast Club!
I forgot how much I adored the “Brat Pack” I see more of their movies in the near future.
You can get Pitch Perfect 1 & 2 in a double pack on Amazon.ca & Amazon.com You can also get The Breakfast Club on Amazon.ca & Amazon.com also check out this amazing compilation of John Hughes movies (available in both Canada & US) These are affiliate links, I may get a small commission if you buy using these links
