My family and I were lucky enough to spend a SUPER fun weekend at Universal Orlando with our new best friends, the minions. Universal Pictures gave us the royal treatment for our amazing VIP “Despicable Me 2 Adventure”. As I wrote in my last post, we saw a screening of Despicable Me 2 which was absolutely hysterical. (Go see it next week!) We went to a dinner party and danced with the characters from the film. Click HERE to see the minions dancing to Gangnam Style, with my little minion in the blue. We were treated to breakfast with the characters and then we were ready to start our day at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure!

My mom and I just got the opportunity to see an advanced screening of “The Help” – incidentally, mom even hopped on the Hampton Jitney to join me for a night on the town, and I’m happy to report that the film was absolutely amazing! If you’ve read the book (and if you’re a fan of Role Mommy, we’ve recommended reading it many times over), you will be thrilled to find out that the movie version of the film stays completely true to the novel. Make sure you bring tissues because you will find yourself crying, laughing and cheering for Minny, Aibileen and Skeeter.
