Back to school time is here...  It is SO CRAZY to me.. I feel like they just got out of school and now here they are starting back.. It might also have something to do with the fact that he starts kindergarten this year... Where did the time go?  Where is my baby?????
We were recently sent the latest... Rio 2 for review.
Broxton was so excited for us to have "movie night during the day!"
We had popcorn and drinks and he was thrilled...  
What he did not know was that not only were we getting Rio 2 to watch, we were surprised to get a Rio 2 lunchbox for us!!!  I don't know about you, but I thought that was pretty cool!  

These lunch boxes are limited edition... and are only available at Best Buy as part of their …

With the Ninja Turtles movie coming out in August, you can bet that will be a hot costume item this year...  We have been fans of those turtles since back when my brother was a kid... so we are very familiar with them. (Although, I would be willing to be my brother would kick butt at old school Ninja Turtle trivia!)
I am not sure if dress up is popular at your house... and don't go thinking " I don't have a girl, we don't do dress up" as there are lots of fun things to play dress up throughout the year!  I know that Broxton loves the costumes and will put them on for playing around the house... but, if you don't allow for dress up play at your house....   You know what will be here before you know i…

Okay, so I used to do "Aloha Friday" but it seems that it has died down... I have random questions of things that run through my head and I am going to start asking a question each week...  Would love to hear your answers!!!!!   I would also love for you to join in with me... Ask a Question of your own - either here in the comments or on your blog (leave me a link so I can visit and answer)  If it seems that a couple of you start doing this with me, I will totally put up a linky, but for now, I just want to know your thoughts...
Today's Question -  Have you ever been to a blog conference and if so, which one(s)?  

My answer -
I have never been to one.  I really want to attend several and I am trying my best to do so.  Not only for the knowledge learned about blogging, but to meet some of the bloggers I have made friends with over the years!

Not even 5 minutes into the movie, Heaven is for Real and I was crying like a baby.  I had wanted to see it when it was in the theaters, but we never had the chance... Now, I am glad that I didn't, as it was an emotional movie to watch... The fact that it is based on a true story makes it even more so! I am already a fan of Greg Kinnear, so I knew it would be a pretty good movie... but the names don't mean anything in this case, the story sells itself:
Let's put it this way... Your  four year old has an emergency surgery... and comes out of surgery telling you about his experience visiting Heaven...  What do you do?  Do you share his story, knowing that some people might think you are crazy... Or do you keep it to …

While some kids might have all sorts of moves, Broxton was blessed to have some - or at least he is confident he has them... and I know they did not come from me... I have NO moves at all.  Ha ha ha...
Normally, as soon as he hears music, he is dancing and singing and having a blast..
The latest song he loves?
HAPPY. Thanks to a certain movie, he has heard it on there and now whenever he hears it, he starts singing and dancing!  I love it and I love to try and build his confidence in his dancing ability, too many times people are quick to comment and then the kids stop having fun - not around here they aren't!!!
We were lucky to find out that his K-4 teacher last year actually had "dance party Friday" where she w…

If you are on the go all the time, then I have the perfect thing for you... I was told of the Powerocks portable chargers and I was thinking that everyone I knew might need one...
My parents for sure, because when they travel, they always complain about their phones not staying charged and it was hard to get in touch with them...
But then I was thinking about Marc...
When he is away at drill and they are out in the woods, he uses his phone for many reasons... and if they are staying in the woods, how was he to charge it?
This product is pretty awesome!
You can get the magicstick like what we have (available in 8 colors that you see above) but you can also choose to "upgrade" it to a Flash Majicstick (5 colors available o…

·         Everything Has It’s Place Laundry rooms are notoriously known for being cramped so it’s good to keep it as organized as you can. Cut-down the clutter and create plenty of open room for sorting and folding. Put all of your laundry-related items on shelves within reaching distance of the washer and dryer. And a mounted ironing board is perfect for smaller spaces; you can keep it out of the way, yet easily accessible.
