A Huge Thanks!!!!

Please excuse me if any of this is a repeat...
When I get to talking, I do sometimes repeat myself...

I know I have mentioned the MOPS group that I am part of...
Well, let me tell you more...

I joined the MOPS group at our church.
I feel as though I have made pretty good friends with the ladies.
We really have a good time when we are together...

Well, this past week, we had our "Spa Day" for all of the ladies.
It started off sort of "iffy" ...
The plan was to have different vendors come and donate their time ...
As well as have a couple raffle prizes to give to the women.
In the start, EVERY VENDOR we reached out to said NO..
But then in the last week, it all fell in place!!

We had 2 different companies there giving massages to the ladies.
Unique Day Spa sent their employees to give massages and they also had employees giving manicures to the ladies as well!
Signature Salon and Spa was also represented with massages being given also.
I was able to get in touch…

A Rootin Tootin Wild West Nickelodeon Favorite Adventure

Image
We have not really watched many Nickelodeon shows, luckily for us, the ones that we do like...
We now own on DVD.
Broxton has really gotten into watching Team Umizoomi and The Bubble Guppies...
I now realized that he also LOVES The Wonder Pets! 

I do not mind him watching the shows, as they are educational, so he is learning too!
We were recently sent the Nickelodeon Favorites: Rootin Tootin Wild West.
I thought that this was a bit different than most of the DVD's that we have.. Why?
Because it has the cartoons that we love, but it also mixed it up with a television show that he had never seen before.  He loved it, as it was full of music and dancing!!!!

If you are looking for a great video (think of Valentines or Birthday ideas!) this would be great to add to your collection.  It is full of excitement and (so far) I have not gotten tired of watching this, as its so upbeat!!!!

Synopsis:
Bubble Guppies – “The Cowgirl Parade”

Molly wants to be a cowgirl like Dusty, the riden’-est…

The Dragons Are Coming - Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus

Image
I am so excited to tell you that Ringling Bros And Barnum & Bailey are headed back our way...
Last year, I heard of the show that would be headed to Atlanta for 2013...
Dragons. The Ringmaster is Jonathan Lee Iverson. 
We saw him when he was with another of their shows in 2010. He was AMAZING.  The excitement that he brings, just adds to the enjoyment of the show!!! Broxton loved the Torres Family when he saw them before, so this is so exciting to know that they will be back this time around!!!
I am just so excited that they are doing Dragons, as a tribute to The Year of the Dragon...
This is sure to be full of fun!!
Dragons heads to Atlanta for February.
Philips Arena has shows February 13 - 18th... and then the show heads to Duluth for February 21 - March 3rd.
Head on over and purchase tickets now!!!!

Don't forget to stop back over here later in February, as I will be posting my review from the show!!!!
Cross your fingers that I am able to get great pictures!

***** I will be…

Farm Field Trip W/W

Image
Wednesday...
Not sure if this will be WORDLESS or WORDFULL...
BUT, I know there are pictures for you!!!!
Okay, let me stop lying...
It is WordFULL - Who am I kidding?!

A couple weeks ago, we went home to see my family... and while there, we drove over to visit dear friend of mine.  She just recently moved into her dream home and I wanted to see it!!!
Broxton loved it, since it was so open and had plenty of outside for playing!!!
But, the highlight for him?

"Field Trip at Mrs. Nikki's!!!"

We went to the farm and he got to feed a Donkey... and a cow that had just had a baby!!!!

Hope you enjoy the pictures!!!!

Inspirational Teachers In Film - Won't Back Down

Image
To celebrate the release of Won't Back Down, Fox has put together a great post for me to share:Inspirational Teachers in Film

Nona Alberts (Viola Davis) is one of those teachers who cares and strives to make a difference. Here, we’ll count down the Top 10 influential teachers in film including those in Mr. Holland’s Opus, Stand and Deliver and Music of the Heart.
Oscar® Nominees Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis lead a stellar cast in this empowering drama inspired by actual events. Hard-working single mom Jamie Fitzpatrick (Gyllenhaal) is concerned that John Adams Elementary is letting her daughter down. Teaming with a caring teacher (Davis) who wants the best future for her own son, she sets out to improve attitudes and elevate the school’s academic standards. Despite the odds, with courage, hope and persistence, the women just might prevail in this uplifting film that also stars Rosie Perez and Academy Award® Winner Holly Hunter.
