We absolutely LOVE Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr on New Girl...   So, to say that I want to see this movie is a bit of an understatement. I am really really looking forward to it!  They make me laugh each week on their tv show, so to see them in a movie will be awesome!   
The Hilarious, Break Out Buddy Comedy Hit of the Summer Lands on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD November 11
Let’s Be Cops
When two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party, they become neighborhood sensations.  But when these newly-minted “heroes” get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.

With Broxton starting Kindergarten, I was planning to label everything...
Until the note came home - It said to ONLY label their notebook and their napmat.... Other than that, it was all community use.  I did not think much about it, but once he was in class...  I knew I wanted to label his things - you know, water bottle, lunch box, his book bag.  I think personalized book bags are cute, but I also think they are not safe, having their name on the outside, easy for weirdo creepers to make them think they know them.
So, I was offered a chance to check out the labels from Kidecals and I have been really impressed.   We went with the round camo boy stickers.  I like that we ordered the everyday set and were able to get several l…

I tell you this, Disney NEVER ceases to amaze me!  If you watch Disney Junior at all, or if you have seen a little girl under the age of probably 7 or 8, you more than likely have seen Doc McStuffins. She is the character of choice on several book bags at Broxton's school and on "Career Day" several of the girls in Kindergarten dressed as her!
I love that Disney has a girl that is not a princess!   She is a doctor ---  of TOYS!!!!   Just in time to start your Christmas shopping, there are a few new Doc McStuffin books that will be huge hits this year!   First we have Doc McStuffins - Doctor's Helper.  This is a hard back book with beautiful, colorful illustrations on each page.  In this book, Stuffy finds …

How your house smells when someone walks in needs to be a top priority...
Do you want people leaving talking about it smelling nasty, or that you welcomed them in with a warm and inviting home that had a lingering scent of a fall favorite?
I will let you in on a little secret, I have ALWAYS been a fan of classics such as "clean linen" or "cotton" or any of the fresh scents.. but since being introduced to Air Wick's line... I love all the different scents that they introduce and am always eager to see what comes next!    Air Wick has continued their partnership with the National Parks Foundation for their second fall National Park Collection. With five scents inspired by our National Parks, this collecti…

It takes a Village... @fathersdotcom

Life has been pretty busy here lately... Broxton started kindergarten...  Enough said!  
No seriously, he started kindergarten and I signed up for PTA... and he also plays baseball... So, like I said... busy... but so fun.  Something has been going through my mind lately and I wanted to share with you...
The first couple days of picking him up after school did not go as smooth as I had hoped for.  He came home and all was fine,but there were a few tweaks needed...  As I was talking to the principal at his school, she made the comment "It takes a Village."  Never has it been more true than now, at least for us.  The first couple weeks of the school year, we were all adjusting and I was very impressed as to the hands on approach of the WHOLE school.   
I love how they ask the parents to be involved and work as morning greeters...  Just one more friendly face before they head into the school to start their day.
I have been doing it for several weeks and I will admit, I do love …

Life has been busy lately... With Broxton in Kindergarten and me on the PTA and all of that good stuff... but you know me... I am all about #MakingMemories with my little guy and when I learned of The Rock Ranch, I was SO EXCITED to be able to take him for a day of fun.
I heard of The Rock Ranch from visits to Chic-Fil-A - but lets be honest, how much can you really learn from a little brochure at the check out counter or a mini poster on the window?
We were invited for a media day and I am so glad I was able to attend... Now that we have learned of this not very well known secret, I want to share it with everyone!!!    Their theme this year is Wizard of Oz - so it was fitting that they had a few special appearances from a co…

Do you have a pirate fan on your hands and they want to be a pirate like Jake?  Maybe they want to be like Izzy with her Pixie Dust?  They could even want to be like Cubby with his great sense of direction... Whatever the case may be, the bottom line is that they probably really enjoy Jake and the NeverLand Pirates... So what better way to get them to love reading than to grab a few books with their favorite characters???   We were sent a couple book selections featuring Jake and the gang (not to mention that pesky Hook and his sidekick, Smee!)     The books were great and talk about a selection.  They sent us a board book, a regular book and even a book with stickers!
