Odd combination right? Not so much for me because they go hand in hand. Let me explain. A few weeks ago, I told you how excited we were that Monsters University was being released in theaters nationwide. We haven’t had the chance to see it yet. My schedule is BUSY and my Bubby doesn’t sit through movies well. We’ll go, we’ll probably have to leave, and we’ll catch it on DVD later when I remember to pick up a copy. 

When I heard that I could pre-order the movie on DVD at Walmart, I was on it like frosting on cake! I really want to take Bubby back to the movies and try this again so I attempted to get him excited with cupcakes. Because you know, I bake all of the time (or never).
Anyway…I was on a mission. Bubby and I went shopping and we bought the pre-sale copy of Monsters University AND cupcake ingredients. This would be fun! We used a boxed cake mix in Key Lime so no food coloring was even involved. Brilliant, I know. 
I didn’t even burn the cupcakes. I’m shocked too. While they were cooking, I read about the pre-sell details of my movie order. Pretty impressive. I paid just under $28 for this DVD and Blu-ray combo that will be delivered to my door step this fall. And for my pre-purchase, I received an abundance of sneak peeks and other previews through Vudu. The babies and I laughed ourselves silly watching those. This movie is going to be even better than the first. Hard to imagine I know, but buy the pre-sale version and watch the previews. You’ll agree!
The pre-order pack is awesome. You assure that you score a copy of the movie when it is available on DVD and Blu-ray this fall. Plus you get a coupon for $1.50 off Juicy Juice. AND you get an $8.00 movie voucher for ANY Disney movie of your choice in theaters. Monsters U and the Lone Ranger are already out, and Planes will be coming to theaters on August 9th! PLUS you get all of these highlights and previews on Vudu. Where else can you get this kind of entertainment for under $30? Don’t answer. You can’t!
So back to these cupcakes, and our personal party. It was fun. Did they fit the Mike Wazowski look I was going for all of the way? Of course not. I’m not a baker or even very crafty. But they were fun and the babies loved them! That’s really all that matters in my house.
My kids are serious about their cupcakes and apparently these were good!
And I mean seriously good!

We’re looking forward to seeing the movie in theaters. If Bubby backs out on me like he usually does, I know that I’ll see it in the fall because it will be delivered to my house. Secure your copy today just in case your little monster isn’t much of a movie goer either. I’m glad I did. And the previews are hilarious. I’d share them with you, but I want to encourage you to pre-order and watch them for yourself!

If you’ve seen the movie, what did you think? If not, are you sitting on pins and needles until it comes out on DVD and Blu-ray? Have you pre-ordered yet? What are you waiting for? Oh, and be sure to make Key Lime (boxed) cupcakes with Mike eyes in the meantime. You’ll be a hero in your house without a lot of work. But let’s keep that our monsterous little secret, shall we?

  1. I haven’t seen it yet but I can’t wait! And how cute are your cupcakes?

    And by that, you mean you’re amazed I didn’t burn them right?

  3. I’m dying that my boy was bad the day we were going to see it. We’ve asked him since then, but he had other things on his mind. Maybe soon because I really want to see it!

    Let me know when you see it and what you think. We’ll honestly probably wait for the DVD. Bubby just doesn’t do well at the theater for some crazy reason!
