I told you that we went to see the Book of Life when it was in the theaters and we loved it.  Well, since then, we have been eager to see it on our TV, meaning that we were ready to own it and be able to watch whenever we wanted!  (Marc even enjoyed this one, so it will be watched often!)  I am happy to say that we will be able to own it when it becomes available on the 27th of January! To add to the excitement, I get to host a giveaway so that one of you will be adding this great movie to your collection as well!  
THE BOOKOFLIFE is a breathtaking animated comedy with a dazzling visual style unlike anything you’ve seen before. Torn between the expectations of his family and the desires of his heart, a young man named Manolo s…

Living in Atlanta, we have been lucky to have many fun events happen near us.  Coming up next? Monster Energy is presenting Supercross!  I am thrilled to know that we will be going, since whenever we have been to any events that have bikes in it, Broxton is on the edge of his seat the whole time.  Not to mention that I have watched Supercross on TV before and I must admit, it looks pretty exciting.  I think seeing it live will be even more thrilling than I think it is already!    Just think of seeing all these bikes racing around a dirt track, trying to see who will come out the winner!   Just looking at the photos, I am so excited to surprise him with this ... especially since it will be close to his birthday and will be a b…

Friday Feast #1 ( #Linky ) Crock Pot Potato Soup

I am glad you decided to stop by and I really hope you join me as I try to do Friday's Feast! What exactly is Friday's Feast?  It is what I hope to start as a great link up!  
All you have to do is post a link to your recipe of choice!   It can be an old one or a new one. It can be easy or hard.  Hey, it can literally be anything... drinks, entree, snacks... the options are endless!  I just hope you join up with me and maybe we can all find a few new recipes to add to our collection!
I hate to admit that I have no picture of the finished product. I plan to do better at taking photos of the dishes I cook, but until then, I will find a random photo to add to give you something to see! I saw this recipe being passed around on facebook, so I am not sure where it was originally posted .  If you know where it came from, I would love to link back to it, so please let me know!

Growing up, were you a prankster?  Well, I totally got pranked a bit ago.  I had a note telling me I had a package waiting for me on the shipping office.  I finally got around to getting it and it had "PERISHABLE" written on it...I freaked out, not knowing what was sent for review and what condition it was going to be in... I opened it and it was a rather large carton of milk...  Then, I opened it up and saw that they got me!   It wasn't milk... It was a new book for me to read!   The Terrible Two  was the name of the book and when I saw that Jeff Kinney (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) liked it, I knew I was going to have to see what it was about.  I couldn't put it down, I was cracking up at what the prankster was…

Just because Christmas is over, it doesn't mean that the season for giving is over.  With many area's we are facing cold days and even colder nights.  Sure, we have a nice warm bed to snuggle up in, but that isn't the case for many kids around the world.  Lucky for us, Carters has teamed up with the 1 Million Good Nights Pajama Program.  If you are interested in donating, you can fill out the form online and make a gift card donation to help them provide warm pajama's and a great kids book as well.   October 1 marked the start of Danger Season when temperatures around the country began to drop. Many of the children we serve do not have warm pajamas to sleep in on cold nights. We need your help, and children ne…

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that Broxton and I saw the movie Paddington back in December.  Well, since it is being released on January 16th, I can finally share with you just how great and cute and funny and sweet and sad it really was!  
I have always heard of Paddington, but have never seen Paddington on TV or even read a Paddington book... Until now.  We saw the movie and fell in love.  We were given a Paddington bear when we left and Broxton actually donated one to his school library (where he has also requested Paddington books to bring home for us to read!)  


In Paddington, we get to see how it all starts, with Paddington and his family out in the jungle.  We then follow Paddington on his journey, see how he…

Hey everyone!!!
Hope you have had a great holiday and are back in the swing of things now.
Sorry that I have been missing and I really hope you are still with me.
Life has been hectic lately and I am finally back and ready to go.
Let's see... Lots of personal things have been going on, but the main thing I want to share with you is asking for you to keep my family in your thoughts and prayers...
You see, long story short, my granddaddy was placed in the hospital right before Christmas.
He spent Christmas in the hospital, with my Mema by his side.
For us, that meant going for a visit before Christmas to see him in the hospital and lucky for us, we were able to visit him after Christmas where he was back home.  For those not aware, he has Alzheimer's / dementia and that is just one of the issues he is facing.  The great news?  When I went to see him after Christmas, HE KNEW WHO I WAS!!!!   Talk about an amazing feeling!  I feel like it has been years and years since he knew me, but I a…
