Get Ready To Laugh! Raising Hope Season One DVD Out 9/20

Please tell me that you have heard of this show...Raising Hope?
It comes on after Glee and I have to tell you, it is HILARIOUS!!!!

Marc and I watched it the first night it came on and we tried to watch it every single week.
It was one of our "must see" shows. We would literally crack up laughing for the entire show.
Long story short, Jimmy (the son, bottom guy in the DVD cover) has a one night hook up with this chic and the next morning, they see her on the news WANTED FOR MURDER. While in jail, she contacts Jimmy to let him know she is pregnant and he is the father. He ends up getting her and names her "Hope," hence the name of the show!
The series shows how he struggles with raising a daughter, while he is still just a kid himself.
While dealing with being a first time dad, he is lucky enough to have the help of his parents, as he still lives at home. You can not beat watching Martha Plimpton and Garret Dillahunt as the grandparents of Hope! They are just too funn…

What did you do last night? Monday's NEW shows

When I used to work, it was mainly nights...
Think about it, I worked in a restaurant for 10 years... So, during that time, my television was minimal. But, since Broxton was born (and I have been lucky enough to be able to stay home, so far... )
I am really trying to make up for lost time!
HA! Ha! Ha! HA!

Two and a Half Men:
I was so excited for the new season of Two and a Half Men... For several reasons, I LOVE watching the reruns, as I am constantly laughing at what they are doing... I still do not know who I find myself laughing at the most, but I think it is Bertha. Anyways, between already being a fan... and wanting to see how the new season would start... I was ready! I am serious! I had a post it note on my desk reminding me when it started, I set the reminder on the television... and I was ready!

If you have not seen it and want to, I suggest no longer reading this post, as I am totally talking about it all... so, major spoilers!

When it opened, it was just as we all had known... C…

NVISION Photography #Giveaway

I have blogged before about finally starting up my own NVision PhotographyEtsy Store.I love photography and I have always had a love for it..
As long as I can remember, I would have a camera with me and would always be taking pictures of something. Thank goodness for digital now! Whew!!! So, why did I start an Etsy store? Well, for starters... I finally got up the courage to try and show others my pictures... Second thing, I am a stay at home mom. I would LOVE to bring in a little extra income. Do I think that this Etsy store with pay all the bills? Not at all.. But, I do think that if I were able to get my name out there... I could hopefully sell a couple and in turn, have extra income to help out around here...
With that being said.. I wan to offer an 8x10 of your choosing to one lucky reader!

Want to enter? Just visit NVisionPhotographyon Etsy and come back here, leaving me a comment as to which photo you like the best. (Please leave email address if its not in your profile.)

Back to School with T.J.Maxx

When I think of back to school shopping, I immediately start thinking of what all we need.One thing, clothes!!!

I hate to admit it, but I never thought about T.J.Maxx and Marshalls carrying more than clothes!
I did not know that they had book bags and lunchboxes!

I was able to join up with the campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of T.J.Maxx and Marshalls to go and see what I could find.

I decided that we would check out T.J.Maxx, as I had not been to this one yet.
I first of all went to the infant/toddler section.
I guess it was out of habit, as I knew that I was there to get clothes for the older boys.
The clothes and prices for Broxton was great!
They had the outfit sets (I love those, as it makes it easier for Marc to dress him when they are like that! LoL!)
They had adorable pajama's and a decent selection of toys!!!

Then, I snapped out of it (remembering Marc was in the car... he is NOT a shopper!) and we headed to the older kids area.
Well, let me back track.
We headed to the m…

Henry's Crime - DVD Review

I just finished watching Henry's Crime and I have to say, it was alright... I guess on my parents scale of 1-10, with 10 being the best, I would give it a 7. Have you heard of this movie yet? I never really saw anything advertising for it and I sort of wonder why.
Henry's Crime is about Henry (you think?) and his crime (really?!) Anyways, Henry is working as a toll booth worker that really seems pretty miserable with his life.. Then, one day, he gets arrested for robbing a bank.
Well, being the "good guy" that he is... He doesn't tell on his friends, but rather goes to prison to pay for a crime he didn't commit. (I personally think he used that as his excuse to get out of his miserable marriage, tell me what you think.)

While in jail, he becomes friends with his cellmate... and once out, sets out to find his "dream" (that was a question asked to him from his cellmate)
Come to find out... His "dream" is to rob the…
