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…

Remember my fun day at Americas Mart?  Here I am with yet another pretty awesome company to tell you about...  (And I have a giveaway for you as well!)  Make Good Choices is the company... and I love their slogan. Don't we all need to make good choices? Make Good Choices has several phrases and I love several.  The ones that grab me : Make Good Choices- Support Our Troops - Be a Hero- Believe John 3:16
Awesome!! They have mens, womens and kids shirts... They have nook tablet covers, hats and even stickers...  In a time where there is so much negativity, it is nice to see such a positive message!

Remember my post about Percy Jackson?  How I said I had a story to tell you...
Well here we go...
The other night, Broxton and I had an amazing time!!!

We were invited to the Georgia Aquarium to work with the release of the latest Percy Jackson Movie Blu-Ray / DVD  and team up with Project Linus and UPS!!!   What happened?
As I said, we went to the Aquarium... and Broxton was immediately mesmerized!!!

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…

When Broxton was born, it was hard for us at times...  I tried breast feeding and it did not work for us...  so, we had bottles out the wazoo!   You know hotels don't have stoves (to sterilize the bottles)  and when we were travelling to see Marc (before he deployed) there were many nights in a hotel... What did I do? I took a TON of bottles with me and was lucky if they had a microwave, I could use my sanitizer...  But, that meant even MORE stuff to carry and that was hard to do...  You know, solo... plus a newborn!!!
Of course, now that Broxton is way beyond bottle years, I learn of Steri-bottle. Steri-bottle is a single use bottle that is sterilized and ready to go!!! The packaging has your bottles and the nipples...  each in…

I used to laugh at infomercials...   Until I had Broxton...  Now, he thinks that he just HAS to have every single thing he sees on the TV... and you know, he gets it from me... I know it... as I am the same way...  As soon as an infomercial comes on, I zone in and I know that I just need to have it... Because honestly, it would make my life so much better by having it... I just know it... 
I have bought a few things that were total jokes, but I have bought a few that were pretty nifty too!   I have also reviewed a couple that make life easier (I still swear by my meatloaf pan!)   We were sent the Wraptastic for review and at first, I thought it was going to be another gimmick.  If you think about it, saran wrap and reynolds foil c…

Until December 21st, those that are in Atlanta can go visit Santa someplace special...  In a CASTLE!!!  That is right, right in Atlanta on Peachtree Street.   Broxton was pretty excited about seeing the Castle and truth be told, I was excited as well... I had never been in there before, so I wanted to check it out!  
The "Castle on Peachtree Street" is also known as Rhodes Hall and it is part of the Georgia Trust of Historic Preservation.   During the month of December, it hosts Santa on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and allows for families to make one of a kind memories during the hustle and bustle of the holidays. You do pay $38 per family, but a benefit is that parking is FREE and that is hard to find pretty much a…
