Back in October, I was able to review the Angry Bird Telepods for you guys...  Broxton saw them online and was determined that he really NEEDED them and that he just had to have it. We were lucky to be able to review them and since then, we have slowly added to our collection of angry bird items.  To be honest, we have about 5 of the sets now and he loves adding and mixing to make the scenes for the birds to destroy... and those crazy piggies... Oh my... they are always doing something!!!!
I thought we were all set for Christmas gifts... until he spotted the Angry Birds Go! ANGRYBIRDS™ GO! TELEPODS™ PIG ROCK RACEWAY™ Set (Age: 5+; Approximate Retail Price: $29.99; Available: Now)
Race head-to-head to topple the pirate pigs! Sling…

If you are planning a movie for the weekend...
One I recommend is Percy Jackson - Sea of Monsters. We watched the other night and my 13 year old really got into it... Although, I admit I was a bit lost at times (But I was also multi-tasking, so that could have been it too, not sure) ...  Broxton watched too, but there are parts that I thought it was a bit too mature for him. To gear up for you to watch this weekend, I wanted to share a few Activity Sheets for you to enjoy. Just click on the image to enlarge/download. ENJOY!!!!!!!

FTC Compliant Review Policy: This is not a sponsored post, I am posting to share with you all and honestly would love  to get to review a copy for you all soon!
While Broxton is a fan of the cartoon Marvel characters, I personally really enjoy the movies - very - much!!  I am happy to know that they will be releasing Thor - The Dark World on February 25th.  Yes, this will be needed to be added to our library as soon as it is released!!!!  Check it out: 

Synopsis:             Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself.  In the aftermath of Marvel’sThe Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos… but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness.  Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet,…

Have a Minute? #HopeforSteve

Hope that the new year has been treating you all great. I have been thinking about many things lately and I felt that I needed to write this.
While I am sitting around wishing for the funds to take Marc and the boys on a memorable vacation... A friend of mine has a much more meaningful wish and although I can not grant it, I can surely use my blog as a platform to try and help them achieve the wish.
I hope you will help me out...
If you have a blog, facebook, twitter... any social media way to share the story of Hope and Steve, I really would appreciate it.

Let me give you a quick run down...
Don't quote me on it, but this is pretty much it...
Back in my working days, I had a young girl from Pennsylvania and her roommate start working for me.
They both we awesome, but I am going to focus on Hope for this post...
She has a heart of gold and really is a great person.
Fast forward to today... Long gone are the days of working together, but we still "keep in touch" thr…

I don't know about you, but my hair deals with more during the winter months than any other time of the year.  For the most part, my hair is just pulled back in a ponytail... wet or dry... no big deal to me... Or, if I am going somewhere, I just get a shower and then go, letting my hair dry on its own...  Well, it really is not the best to do that during the colder months, so I normally try and at least dry it...  Also, with colder months = more social functions = flat ironing my hair.

If you remember, I mentioned before how I try and rotate what products I use on my hair.  I have heard that your hair can start to build up on the products, so for me... rotating makes it seem like it wouldn't.  Don't quote me on that…

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…
