The Big Year - DVD Review

Image
I love watching movies... I wish I had a movie rental place that was easier for me to get to.
I was lucky enough to have the chance to review the latest movie, The Big Year. Have you heard of it?  It had Jack Black, Steve Martin and Owen Wilson in it...
To be honest, I really had no idea what it was about...
BUT, I did know that with those three names, it was going to be good. I will say, it was not a comedy like I was expecting with those three... but, it was a movie that I really enjoyed.
The Big Year is about a three guys from three totally different backgrounds...  All on the same mission:  Birding the Big Year...  Meaning, who ever has the "Big Year" is the one that sees the largest number of birds!!!
Now, don't get me wrong, I do not hate birds... but I am not familiar with them either... I did enjoy watching the movie and learning the different types that are out there..
I enjoyed it, but I tell you ... Bird Lovers/Watchers.... Watch out!  They will LOVE IT!

Monster Trucks in Atlanta!!!! #Giveaway

Image
Hey all!!!! We had a great day today and let me tell you, I just loved it!!!!
Also, be warned... There is a good amount of cuteness contained in this post...
So ... Don't say I did not warn you!!!!!
We are not at the age of Monster Trucks yet...  Well, I did not think we were until today! I remember years ago taking my brother to a Monster Truck show and I thought Broxton might enjoy seeing the trucks...   I heard that they were in town... and get this..
FREE Meet and Greets were going on with the drivers!!!! (It did not hurt that my grandmother gave Broxton a Monster Truck for Christmas!)
So, we put the location in the GPS and made a mommy/son day!!!!

First up:
BATMAN Monster Truck
As soon as Broxton saw it : "Whoa!  That is a big truck!"
I heard several of the men talking about what all was going on  down there!
Yes, Grown men taking pictures and all... I guess we all have excitement no matter what age!!!! We then went inside Metro PCS where we met the driver of Batma…

Glee The Concert On DVD

Image
I admit it...
I am a GLEE Fan!
I love it.
I did not watch the first season... but then I had to buy it to get ready for season two.
(My mom actually gave it to me as a gift and I was so thankful!)
When season two started, Marc and I made it part of our weekly routine to watch it...
So much that last summer when the boys came, the oldest started watching Season One...
And then when he found out that I would be reviewing Glee Season Two, he started asking ALL the time when it would be here so he could watch them...
When the boys came for Christmas this year...
The oldest QUICKLY reminded me that he needed to watch season two.
We pulled it out and started watching... I loved that he was so excited (even texting before they came to make sure we were still on to watch all of them!)
The other two could have cared less... then, the 13 year old started watching and slowly got sucked into (shhhhh don't tell anyone) watching them!!!  He was making fun of his older brother at first for bein…
