All crammed in to one tiny little post…


I never intended to leave for vacation without having blogged for an entire week. In fact, I am a little shocked that happened at all.

It was also a last minute decision to not even take my macbook on vacation. That was very unlike me, and a good decision for sure!

So, what have you guys been up to in the past couple of weeks?

As for me, I did some work. My fourteen year old graduated the 8th grade and became the proud owner of an iPhone. We saw the best movie we’ve seen all year (Now You See Me). The three of us traveled to Wisconsin to see our older daughter Amanda and celebrate her 23rd birthday. We rushed home yesterday because my fourteen year old, iPhone toting, 8th grade graduate started a summer volunteer job and Chw had to do a whirlwind pack and rest trip as he headed out on a business trip today.

He was the only one of us, who had been to Wisconsin before. It was mine and Gen’s first time. Amanda moved there last fall to be closer to her BFF (of 10 years) while she went to school and was in the Reserves. It was a huge move and getting to see her town, apartment and glimpse her life was pretty awesome. (We are also glad we live here and NOT Idaho- as we wouldn’t get to see her very often otherwise.)

Wisconsin was gorgeous, you guys. Not what I expected. Very beautiful, very peaceful and serene. By day four we were really missing city though, which makes it seem like we live in a metropolis. I guess it might seem like it in comparison to the serene Wisconsin quiet.

Added bonus- every where we went, people were the NICEST people. It caught us off guard, which probably proved there was a little city in us.

Now we are home, and we have a few weeks before our Lucas is home for a tiny bit. I feel like we parents blink, and life just speeds by. In the middle of that there are carnivals and birthdays and father’s day and summer movies… My head spinned a little bit when I opened my planner, after we got home last night.

SPEAKING OF SUMMER MOVIES… My husband Chw, is an avid lover of comic book movies. Some of them, I’m all “woo hoo” about, and some of them I’m like “meh” about. His absolute favorite superhero is Superman. Because CK/SM is his favorite, I’m more on the “WOO HOO” side, with the release of Man of Steel next week! (side note: it’s funny that the last few father’s days we have done Superman themed father’s days for him and then suddenly Superman comes out right before Father’s Day this year.)


Anyway, in all of the Super-excitement here at Chez Wagner, I am going to do a Man of Steel giveaway!

The prize package will include quite a few Superman items to get you ready for the movie, (think t-shirt, etc.) OR if your man is also a Superman lover- to help you shower him with love and memorabilia on Father’s Day.

  1. I was never a big fan of “black & white” until Morgen got me to watching – Superman, Batman, all of the Super Hero stuff. Amazingly, I prefer the black & white versions over all of the high-tech, theatrical stuff – I think because it’s my thing with Morgen!

  2. Midnight showing of MAN OF STEEL baby! (That is if I can find a midnight sitter! ;)

  3. Just saw the new Trek movie, we loved it, and want to see it again. We also saw the trailer for the new Superman movie…it looks really good!

  4. I’m looking forward to a new erra of Superman. Don’t get me wrong, the original series set the standard, but the level of films these days opens so many possibilities for greatness!

  5. I am on the edge of my seat to see so many movies this summer! Kings of Summer has to be at the top of my list of what I am looking forward to and Now You See Me is hands down one of the best movies I have seen in a long time! AMAZING!!!

  6. My kids and I have plans to go see Turbo because it opens on my 40th birthday! How fun will that be?!!!

  7. I think my favorite Superman was Smallville. I particularly liked it because a guy that went to my high school played Lex Luther, so it was fun to see him on TV every week. :)

  8. So excited about Man of Steel but a close 2nd is Fast & Furious 6 and Now You See Me! Good Luck all!

  9. Well, I know that my kids are looking forward to the Lone Ranger. I think I am most excited about Now You See Me!

  10. Christopher Reeve will always be my Superman but Brandon Routh & especially Henry Cavill just might be on the same pedestal :)

  11. This may not be the popular answer, but I’m kind of excited to see This Is The End. I have to admit that Seth Rogan, Jonah Hill, and Jay Baruchel make me laugh!
