How fast can you go in your @striderite shoes? #backtoschool

If you have visited this blog before, you might know how much we love the shoes from Stride Rite.  I will sing their praises, as they are really good for us.  Broxton can do some damage on shoes, so for the longest time I would just buy a cheap pair from a local store and when they were worn out, we would just buy a new pair.  We then tried out Stride Rite and we have never looked back!  Well, actually this one time, his daddy wanted to buy him a pair of shoes like his, so we ventured out to that store and after wearing them for about 10 minutes (and him not liking them) we took them back to their store and then headed further down in the mall and got him a new pair of Stride Rite shoes!   

Stride Rite offers shoes that are "made 2 play."  These are perfect for kiddo's that get their shoes dirty and often.  They are machine washable!!!!  These shoes are more of a swim material than other sneakers, so keep that in mind if you have one that is used to things being a certain way and not up for change.  
These are Broxton's go to shoes now!  He absolutely LOVES them.  It was cute watching him try them on, as he has to run around the store to make sure he is still "super fast"... the fact that they light up was an added bonus.  Yes, he was super fast... so these came home with us. Actually, I got to looking and all of his shoes he has now are from Stride Rite.  I am sad to say that the Darth Vader shoes that got wet not to long ago have been placed to the side so that the new shoes he has now are the ones he always picks.  I guess I need to hide these one day, so that Vader still feels the love!  

If you are looking for shoes for back to school, or even just trying to get a head start on Christmas, make sure you keep Stride Rite in mind. They have been around since 1919, so you know they are doing something right!!!  If that isn't enough, I love that every time we go by the store, it seems like they have a sale of some sort going on.  Stride Rite has shoes for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and kids!   (They also have a cool selection of shoes for the Star Wars fan!  I can't wait to learn more about the limited edition ADULT Star Wars shoes that match the kid ones.  I would be a rock star mom if I got these for us!)
I feel like I need to buy these for Broxton for Christmas!!!!   He would be thrilled!   
Wouldn't you buy Stride Rite shoes if you knew the end result would get you a smile this big???

Great Clothes at AWESOME prices from @GildanOnline #BackToSchool

With Back To School all around us, I wanted to take a few minutes to highlight on a product that many don't really think about.  Okay, Okay, maybe it was just me.. because I didn't think about it until this year!  Each year when back to school rolls around, I go and start thinking about clothing.  Having a young son, we always had to go and grab the cute character t-shirts and then I would grab a few polo style shirts as well.  The polo style were great, as he could wear them to school and then wear it on Sunday to church!  Each year for Christmas, I get all the boys a pair of pajamas that they wear on Christmas Eve.  Normally I just grab the pj pants, but last year, I went and got them matching shirts, since it was cuter to me that way.  Once I did, I realized that all of them love the solid colored t-shirts and that included the youngest!   How about your shopping list?  Have you checked out all of the colors and styles that Gildan has to offer?  
Image Credit - Gildan Site 
We were sent a selection of their classic short sleeve t-shirts for review.  They have tons of colors from your basic colors like blue, red, green, and black, but then they go a step further and offer other colors such as honey, sapphire and orchid!  If you are looking for a great solid colored t-shirt, you want to head over to see what all they offer.  Keep in mind they also have several fit styles.  Gildan offers classic fit, semi fit and missy fit.  They have shirts for adults, ladies and toddlers.  Oh, did I mention that they have more than just basic t-shirts? You can check out to see what they have along the lines of v-neck, tank, sleeveless, t-shirts with or without pockets and also long sleeve options!  Besides the options of colors and styles, I personally LOVE the price!!!   $6 per t-shirt and they even offer "tall" sizes for an additional $1.  


Image Credit - Gildan Site 
As I mentioned, we also go the polo route and I am a bit annoyed that I am just now finding out they offer polo shirts for $8.99 each!!!   I could have been buying more for my money for all the boys from this site!   They offer shirts from small to XX-large, so that would cover all the sizes we could need.  I mentioned the shirts to Marc and he was already familiar with this brand, as it was a brand of shirt he knew from the military!   

Gildan offers other styles as well. They have socks and underwear, but I was happy to see the clothing options they have under the "sweats" link.  They have basic sweat shirts, hooded sweatshirts, zip up sweatshirts, quarter zip cadet collar sweatshirts and even sweatpants! Best part?  After looking at all I did, I did not see anything over $20.  That is a huge plus when you have many to buy for!  

If you are like me and wait for school to start back to let the chaos die down, you want to head and stock up on several items from Gildan!  (We even went ahead and grabbed a few solid colored shirts to represent the college football teams we love! Yes, I did purple and gold for LSU for Marc and the boys... I can be nice!)  If you are one that buys early for back to school, maybe you are ready to start Christmas shopping.  You could stock up on these at great prices!

Head on over to see what all they have that you can mark off your list!

Do you have pets?  We don't... yet.  Maybe one day, but no time soon!   Broxton had asked for a puppy or a sibling and well, we see what route we chose to head down!  He loves dogs and maybe one day we will get a dog for him, but not these days. It is enough with a baby and a very hard headed son!   Until then, he can somewhat get his "fix" by watching a puppy filled DVD from Nickelodeon.   He is happy watching it and I don't have to clean up after a puppy any time soon!   I know that the days of these shows are almost all in the past, as he will sometimes say they are " too baby" for him... but he doesn't complain when it is on as background while he plays with his toys!  I love that we are still working on building up a great DVD library for Savannah!!!

I have always been a fan of Charlie Brown and the gang.  I think they are cute, they are timeless, they are classic.  Broxton doesn't seem to get as into it as I do, but that is alright with me.  He does watch from time to time (and daddy gets into watching the Great Pumpkin!)  I was excited to get the Peanuts Emmy Honored Collection for review.  When I receive animated DVD's, I like to get them for Broxton, but with this one, I was honestly wanting it for me.  I am excited and hope that little Savannah will enjoy all of the characters like I do!  This would make a great gift for any Peanuts fan!

The older Broxton gets, the more he turns into his own person and I just love it.  I guess it was about a year ago when he started drifting away from the preschool shows we used to watch together and turned to choosing other shows.  One was Teen Titans Go.  I was not familiar with it at all, but once he watched, he was hooked!  He loves the show (to the point where my mom got him Teen Titans Go figurines for part of his Christmas last year.)  I didn't realize how popular it was, until I heard other children talking about it.  Yep, pretty big on the young boys radar!!!!  Lucky for us, they just released Season 2, Part 2: House Pests on DVD.  Might want to grab it now and put it up for Christmas, if you can wait that long!!!!
The Teen Titans try to keep things as crime-free and boredom-free as possible as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) releases Teen Titans Go!: House Pests Season 2 Part 2 on DVD on August 18, 2015. Teen Titans Go! is consistently ranked as a top show on Cartoon Network: #1 show for Boys 6-11 and #2 show for Kids 6-11 on all of cable. Teen TitansGo!: House Pests Season 2 Part 2 will be available on DVD for $19.97 SRP and includes over 4 hours of content.

Teen Titans are a GOGOGO! Join DC Comics characters Robin, Raven, Starfire, Beast Boy, and Cyborg in their never-ending quest for goof, justice and maybe a little couch time. Things kick off with a backwards battle as Robin faces off against his Bizzaro World counterpart, Nibor. Raven is pushed to her limits during Crazy Day and it’s anything but a vacation when the Teen Titans visit Starfire’s home world. Don’t miss a single serving as the Titans have their hands full keepin’ the scene both crime-free and boredom-free in this all-new 2-disc collection!

This Labor Day weekend has the Digital Download release of the latest movie with Melissa McCarthy, Spy. To get us ready for the movie, I was sent a #SpiesNightIn kit from Fox Home Entertainment to let us enjoy the movie.
What was included in my #SpyInsiders kit???
Well, it was full of goodies for my friends and I to enjoy!  
We were sent the following: 

  • Digital HD Code 
  • Susan Cooper cat T-Shirt  
  • Gray Wig for hostess 
  • Spy Tablecloth 
  • Red Cross Flashlight + Smart Phone Charger 
  • 5in-1 Survival Whistle 
  • Secret Agent Snacks - popcorn, sour patch kids, m&ms, candy bars
It was pretty funny having people try on the wig and if you follow on Instagram, you saw the goodies.  (I loved the little briefcase that they sent for the goodies to go in!)  

Have you heard of the movie SPY??  Here is the Synopsis: 

Queen of Comedy Melissa McCarthy “in her funniest movie yet” (Leonard Maltin, LeonardMaltin.com) embarks on the mission of a lifetime as secret agent Susan Cooper in SPY.

McCarthy is armed and hilarious in this “outrageously entertaining” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) comedy hit from director Paul Feig (The Heat, Bridesmaids). Deskbound CIA analyst Susan Cooper is about to become the world’s newest — and unlikeliest — secret weapon. When her partner (Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Statham) is compromised, Susan volunteers to go deep undercover and bring down a deadly arms dealer. Loaded with wise-cracking action and adventure, SPY is a mission impossible to resist!

I will be sharing a follow up post soon, so make sure you stay tuned!!!
