When I was just a little girl, I absolutely LOVED Strawberry Shortcake!  I even had a doll that when you squeezed her tummy, she blew out air that smelled like strawberries!!  True story!!! I think I might have loved her more because of her red hair, but I don't know.  All I know is I love that a character from my childhood is still around today!  (Even if they have changed a bit over the years!)   Is your house a fan of Strawberry Shortcake? Join Strawberry Shortcake and some new furry friends in these delightful “tails” about being yourself and encouraging others to do the same. During his road trip to find homes for his orphan puppies, Huckleberry Pie and his four-legged crew get stranded in Berry Bitty City. Luckily,…

We have been so busy with family things lately, I do not know when I have had the time to watch a movie.  This year has been full of things going on (good and bad) and movies, while loved and enjoyed have been put on the back burner.  I have heard friends recommending some, so I thought I would share a few more popular titles.  Maybe you want to buy one, or at least rent it...  Check them out.  Let me know if you have seen them what you think about them!  I actually really want to watch both of these, as I am a fan of both Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Anniston.  These are both on my must watch list for this summer!  From the director of Dallas Buyers Club (Jean-Marc Vallée), WILD recounts the reckless behavior of Cheryl St…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. Summer time means more time outside.  Family vacations and day trips.  Sometimes mom and / or dad might want a quiet night at home.  Make it a movie night with a couple releases that are still pretty popular.  (Maybe you have seen them and just want to watch again, I am not here to judge!)  I know some parents take portable DVD players to watch on road trips for the kiddo's, why not take it and make your trip more enjoyable too?? Check out a few must see movies: First Up - The Best of Me - based on the book by Nicholas Sparks.  Enough said right there, but in case you need more information:
  Based on the #1 New York Times Best Seller from celebrated author Nicholas Sparks comes this tender, romantic drama about the timele…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. Not that long ago, I was invited to a Grand Opening of a store that was new to me... It is called Kid to Kid and it is a resell shop.  Kid to Kid has several locations, but this was for the grand opening of the one in Dunwoody, Georgia.  If you follow me on Twitter, I shared with you the event, so you can't say you were not told about it.  Also, I even shared a few photos on Instagram as well. They had a guy there making Balloon things... I can't say balloon animals, because it was so much more.  He made an Ariel you would love as well as a Ninja Turtle and other amazing creations.  I was VERY impressed!   Anna and Elsa from Frozen were even there and to add to the excitement, they also had a DJ playing up beat music…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I will admit, most times, we have the TV on in the house.  We aren't really watching it, it is more of a background noise for us.  (Same goes for car rides too, but I think we do listen more in their.)  I don't mind when the TV is on and it is an educational type show.  Some shows Broxton watches are pure entertainment (and I don't get it) but when it is something like Team UmiZoomi, I am fine with it.  He learns, its cute and I like it!  Nothing better than seeing him playing with his toys and then hearing him yell out the answer to the math problems they are asking on the TV!  Are you familiar with Team Umizoomi?  When the Space Hero episode came out on TV, he had me DVR it, so he could watch it when he got hom…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. Some people might be familiar with Dora as the cute baby faced little girl that runs around with her little monkey friend singing about "backpacks" but did you know that Nickelodeon has taken this character and aged her to be hanging out with other friends going on adventures?  (I have not watched these episodes yet, just know they are out there)  Now, you can add to your Dora collection of both the classic little girl Dora or you can buy the tween aged Dora!  Perfect for kids of all ages!  Dora and her Explorer Girls are ready to take the stage in the Dora’s Explorer Girls: Our First Concert! DVD.  However, when their tickets get mixed up with charity donations for the show, Dora, Emma, Kate, Naiya and Alana must …

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. Are you familiar with Bubble Guppies?  They are just too cute and I love when the TV is on and they come across the screen.  Not only are they cute to look at, they sing so much and as they sing songs, it teaches kids things, making learning fun!!!

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. We watch plenty of television shows throughout the week, so I try not to add more to our collection of "must see shows."  We tried watching SpongeBob when he was younger (because the older brothers watched it) but I did not think it was age appropriate for him.  Then, it just became a show we don't watch. I know SpongeBob is a very popular show and Broxton wants to see the new SpongeBob movie, so bad he can't stand it.  I figured instead of adding this DVD to our collection that might never be watched, I would share it with you guys!  Yep, one reader will win the SpongeBob Triple Pack!!!  Read and enter below! Can’t wait for the DVD release of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water? Paramount Home Media Di…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. With a little girl on the way, I am loving the fact that Broxton enjoys Max and Ruby from time to time.  He isn't a big fan, as it is a bit to young for him....  but he does enjoy watching and laughing when it comes on in the morning and I leave it on instead of turning it.  If you are not familiar with Max and Ruby, it is a brother/sister team that works together.  I hope by him seeing this show, he will be close with his sister when she is born, versus saying "she's a girl" and trying to distance himself!  Having a brother or sister isn’t always easy, but Max & Ruby show the importance of working together, and resolving differences in respectful and supportive ways, in the brand new DVD, Max & Rub…

The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I have mentioned before that we have enjoyed watching Dora from time to time. Broxton wants to learn Spanish and since I have not spoken Spanish at all since I had to take it in high-school, many years ago I have no knowledge in trying to help him.  Yes, I know a few words, such as how to count to ten and things like that, but after the basics, I am done.  When he can watch a show and learn, it makes both of us happy. This is going to be a great show to enjoy when our daughter is born, so I am excited that we are building our library. Join Dora as she prepares for a big gymnastics performance and dance recital in Dora the Explorer: Whirl and Twirl Collection.  The two-disc set includes the fun-filled “Dora’s Fantastic Gymnast…
