MUST READ: Coming Back Stronger @DrewBrees

Image
As some know, I love watching and following Celebrities... I have been known to read TMZ (daily) and watch when I can...  I have been fortunate to meet a couple celebrities and it is always so neat when I get that chance... That being said, I do not think that celebrities should be put on pedestals... and truth be told, for the majority, I do not know about their personal life...   I think that yes, they are famous... but they are entitled to privacy as well... (Don't get me started on that, I could go on for days...) Anyways, the point of that was to lead in to me telling you about a book that I was sent for review. Coming Back Stronger by Drew Brees.  If you need a push in the direction to know that good role models are still out there... You need to learn about Drew Brees.

Want to know what made me first want to read this? Watching the interaction with Drew and his wife and son after winning the Super Bowl.
He just looked like good people and I was eager to know more about him. …

SuperPretzel Sweet Cinnamon Hits the Spot - Dessert or Snack

Image
If you aren't hungry... You might be before you finish this post... We were recently sent a delicious sampling of the New SuperPretzel Sweet Cinnamon... 
Talk about delish... Yeah, it sure was!   Broxton saw them as soon as he opened the freezer and needed to know what it was and when he could try one... He had a good day at school, so that was his afternoon snack that day!   The box of Super Pretzels has 6 pretzels and then the sugar/cinnamon mixture packet... 

You just throw your pretzel on a plate, zap it in the microwave and then top it with a bit of the sweet cinnamon topping ... then you enjoy!  I was worried that I was going to need something to dip it in, as I did not want it to be too dry... There was no need for anything, as it was just right!  (You don't even have to use the topping, unless you want to, but who am I to pass that up?!)

Now, Broxton and I have just been enjoying eating them plain... (okay, yes... with the topping) but there are so many other ways that you…

In Time for Halloween: The Halloween Tree DVD

Image
I have to admit, I had never heard of the Halloween Tree until recently.   After my dear friend, Google, told me a bit more... I can share with you what I learned. It is a "fantasy novel" by author Ray Bradbury, from 1972... Yes, you read that right... 1972, so before I was even born!   To summarize the movie for you... there is a group of kids that is planning to go trick or treating for Halloween.  they head over to a buddies house and find a note that he has been taken to the hospital for appendicitis .. BUT, one of them sees what appears to be their friend running off... So, kids being kids... they take off after him and find themselves at a spooky house... The owner of the house opens the door and they say what they are supposed to say "trick or treat!"  but the man asks them to explain WHY they dressed the way they did for the night... One of the kids falls and they see what appears to be their friend running again.. 

At that point, the movie feels as though…
