Hugh Jackman - Oh My!!!!
I saw him on Ellen a while back, promoting the newest movie, The Wolverine.  I did not give it much thought, until he was talking about how much physical work was put into it...  When you look at the front of the case, you know he wasn't sitting around eating candy bars every day!!!
So - it arrived just in time for me to be able to watch it with one of the boys...
We decided to make a movie night the other night and I tell you what, this is one ACTION PACKED movie.  I will say that I have no idea anything about wolverine, besides the fact that this character has been around for what seems like ages and all I knew about him was that he had knife type things coming out of his hands...  
Well, this was…

Hold on to your seats!!! As a HUGE fan of The Little Mermaid (yes, in my thirties and I will still watch it like its the first time... )
I was so excited to hear that they had released a 2 movie collection of that lovable Mermaid!!! In the 2 movie collection, we have The Little Mermaid Ariels Beginning... and then The Little Mermaid II Return to the Sea. We watched the Ariels Beginning the other night...
I was in LOVE!!!!  We get to meet Ariel as just a little young mermaid.... and see her and her sisters.  We get to meet Ariels mom... and see Ariel meet Flounder for the first time!



We have not watched The Return to the Sea yet... but I am planning on watching it soon!
If it is anything near as cute as the first, it will be great…

A couple of days ago we watched The Lone Ranger.   Talk about a great movie.  Honestly, I knew nothing about The Lone Ranger, prior to the buzz on this one... and let me be honest, I just wanted to see it because Johnny Depp was in it.  I told Marc that I thought Johnny Depp was an amazing actor, no matter what role he is in, he kills it... and for me, The Lone Ranger was no different.   When it first started though, I was totally lost... 
I am not so sure what I thought about the flashback from the museum scene to the adventure that tells the story of The Lone Ranger... I know that there has to be symbolism in there some way or another, but it was lost on me...   Besides that (and let me be clear, it was not confusing, as some …

Looking for a great personalized souvenir?  Maybe you own a business?  Maybe you want to buy these for a big event?  Well, when I was at Americas Mart, I learned of a pretty awesome company..
The RGU Group!  They make bulk items for companies.  (Think of like the animals from companies with their logo... Yes, this is them.. but the product isn't some cheap filler item!  It is a good quality product that you would buy individually in a store.)


Broxton now has a teddy bear that he absolutely LOVES...   It says I (heart) RGU!
I was rather impressed with the options...
They have several plush items, Broxtons teddy is from their ZOOVENIR line.
They also have a selection including alligators, frogs, lions, penguins, puppies and …

Boy, have I got a story to tell you... But not tonight... I just wanted to let you know that Percy Jackson- Sea Of Monsters will be available to own tomorrow, December 17th.  Now, I have not seen this movie, but I do know that several friends with kids older than Broxton were talking about it being a great series of books/movies, so I am sure more people know about it.  Anyways - The story I want to tell you (but not tonight... maybe Wednesday?)  will tell you more... but, I can say this...  We had a great time tonight... and part of it was a showing of Percy Jackson.  I did not watch it, as I wanted to be able to watch from start to finish... But I know Broxton zoned in and watched while we were there.. and the seating are…
