Happy birthday to me! Well super early but still. We went shopping last night and I got a new car. I love it! Can’t wait to drive it more! But that means I’m celebrating my birthday and Christmas early. The only thing that would be better is if it was really my birthday because I CANNOT wait to see Mary Poppins Returns. It of course actually does hit theaters on December 19th which is my birthday. I’m so excited to see how Emily Blunt is going to transform the character of Mary Poppins. Rachael can’t wait either. There were two movies we had to watch on constant loop when she was younger. One was Coraline and the other was Mary Poppins. I know can you get any further apart from each other with those two movies. We have a special magical look at Mary Poppins Returns.
