Couple of Companies @AmericasMartATL

Is it me, or does this year seem to be flying by?
It seems like just the other day, summer was starting... Now, there is Halloween/Thanksgiving AND Christmas decorations all over the stores...

So - I wanted to go ahead and tell you something...
I will be doing a gift guide this year...
I have several cool companies and products to share with you...
Some reviews... some giveaways!
  

But - I did want to talk a bit more about when I went to AmericasMart.
This is just to sort of touch on some of the cool companies/ products that I saw...
Other posts will be more coverage and more information.

I was amazed by the different journals I saw at Journals Unlimited!
They have different themed journals, so you can do anything from travel to graduation!
They even had a military journal "Freedom Isn't Free!"  I could not decide what I liked more... The travel journal (I want to see all 50 states one day and they have one of them!)  or the different journals they had for organization/address books.  Either way, they have plenty of journals that would be great gifts!

Another company?  The Little Palm.
I tell you, their designs grabbed me... Especially since we recently bought a house... I was loving everything they had on display!!!  They have items such as water bottles, kids plates, place-mats, cutting boards and even serving trays!   ( I want a serving tray!  Love it!)

Finally - I love photographs... Like seriously! I also love the beach, although we don't go often... since once I am there I tend to fry on the first day.. then end up miserable.   I know... apply sunscreen and I am fine.  I am getting better in my old age!  Anyways... I absolutely LOVED looking at all of the picture frames from Beach Frames.  Talk about best of both worlds.  If you can't tell by the picture I wanted to share with you... I fell in love with the chalkboard frames as soon as I saw them!!!!

Hope you enjoyed the sneak peak of some of the companies I saw while at Americas Mart!

Disney Planes - Available November 19th

*** This is not a sponsored post.



Remember how I took Broxton to see Disney Planes?
Then, I bought him lots of goodies from the Planes Product line for Christmas this year?
Well, I know he is going to want to show his big brothers the movie, just like he does everything else he loves when they come to visit!

It seems like movies are coming out faster and faster for home viewing and Disney Planes is no exception!
It is going to be released on November 19th...
So, make sure you plan to buy it...
It is such a great movie!!!!




Film Synopsis:
The world of Cars takes flight in Planes, Disney's high-flying animated comedy revved up with action and adventure.  Join Dusty, a crop duster with sky-high dreams and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take on the world's fastest flyers in the greatest air race ever. Dusty has a huge heart but two big problems...he's not exactly built for speed, plus he's afraid of heights.  His courage is put to the ultimate test as this unlikely hero aims higher than he ever imagined. With a little help from his friends, Dusty finds the courage to be more than he was built for—and the inspiration to soar.

Kids Music to Get You Moving!

I have worked with this company in the past and have received different CD's over time.  I have not received all of these, but still wanted to share, as you might like to see what is out there.  

If you are looking for music to keep your young ones entertained...  This is the post for you to be reading!
Planning any road trips and need music?  Or want fun music to enjoy on rainy days (or too cold to go outside days!)


NYC's Shine and the Moonbeams took the kindie world by storm in 2011 with a live performance at the annual Kindiefest conference and the release of a nationally acclaimed radio hit called "High Five." Since then, lead singer Shawana Kemp has taken her band and fans on a musical adventure, performing shows for enthusiastic crowds at NYC’s Summerstage, Symphony Space and Carnegie Kids and recording a batch of original and hooky songs. The happy result is Shine and the Moonbeams, the band’s first self-titled album release, available digitally and in hard copy on June 18, 2013 from CDBaby and other retailers.

Super Buddies is Now Available To Own

FTC Compliant Review Policy:
The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation.


A little over a month ago, Broxton saw the commercial for Super Buddies...
I am not sure what it was that triggered him, but he was adamant that he really wanted to see that movie.  I had to try and explain to him that it was an advertisement for it coming out... that it was not available to watch yet...   So, every single day, he had to ask me if it was out yet... This kid did NOT give up!!!  

I was so excited when I learned that we would be reviewing it..   As I knew that it was going to make Broxton SO HAPPY!!!  Each day, he was thrilled to go check the mail... and then it arrived!  We immediately snuggled up to have movie night...  It did not matter that it was the middle of the week... It was our time together!!

I will admit, it was not really what I was expecting, I just thought it was going to be those cute buddies being hero buddies... I did not know that there was an "alien" theme to the movie... 
Synopsis: 
Watch the fur fly as a new breed of super hero is born in Disney's fun-filled epic adventure. An ordinary day at Fernfield Farms turns extraordinary when Budderball, Mudbud, B-Dawg, Buddha and Rosebud discover mysterious rings that grant them each a unique super power. Before you can say, "Buddies, assemble," the pups unleash their amazing abilities and race to the rescue when a shape-shifting bully from outer space threatens the planet. But can they succeed in kicking major tail without revealing their new secret identities?

So yeah... these cute adorable pups are turned into SUPER BUDDIES thanks to these special rings...    Then, as they save local citizens, we see the creatures from outer space that are threatening the planet...  So...  it is totally kid friendly (the outer space creature takes on the shape of a pig....  things like this...)   Broxton loved it... I did think for a minute that he was not going to be a fan of the movie with the aliens, but he did!  So much that he had to ask if he could watch it with his brothers... and then he made them watch it twice!   
I would say that Super Buddies were a hit in our house!
If you like the buddies, you will love this latest movie from them!!!!
Make sure to check out the Super Buddies website, there is lots of information and plenty of activities to make sure you enjoy the buddies!
