Where do you shop? #Groupon #ad #spon

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Let's cut to the chase...  Do you realize that since school has started back most places, it can only mean one thing. CHRISTMAS is getting closer and closer!  Seriously, for real.  Like, I am not ready to that "so and so many days until Christmas" but I AM ready to start figuring out what I want to buy those on my list.  Thank goodness for the Groupon Goods, as I have already been eyeing a few items for a few must have items!
Are you one that shops early or do you wait?  I used to shop and be totally done by the end of October.  Yeah, then I realized that HELLO... you are buying for KIDS that change their mind a million times.  What is the MUST HAVE item they want in October might be a NO WAY IN THE WORLD gift come December 25th. 



A friend of mine was singing praises about the magnetic blocks that she bought for her grandchildren and I can see on the groupon website that they currently have them with a 75% discount.  Know wh…

If you are a reader that has been around for a bit, you probably know that my son is a HUGE fan of Kidz Bop.  We have who knows how many of the CD's.  He watches the You Tube Video's to see them dancing.  He loves it.  For years now, he has BEGGED me to take him to see Kidz B…

Good Old McKinley High - #TheWonderYears Season 5

Image
Did you watch The Wonder Years when it originally came on, or were you late to the party and watched reruns?  I am not really sure when I saw them.  The show aired from 1988-1993, so it would have started when I was 9.  I am guessing I watched some as reruns and probably caught some as they aired originally.  I do know that the older I get, I love being able to watch shows from the start and in order, so I am thrilled that The Wonder Years are on DVD.  You can purchase them in individual seasons, fyi... season 6 (the final one) is about to be released... or you can purchase a box set.  I like the individual seasons, so I can loan them out solo, but the box set always has nice additional figures to make it so much fun to own!

Always fun at @LDCAtlanta

Do you ever really outgrow playing with LEGO bricks?  I am thinking no, as they really are fun for all ages.  The older you get, the difficulty level increases, so the finished project is a great accomplishment.  A bit ago, I told you about LEGOLAND DISCOVERY CENTER having redesigned their Atlanta location. We were able to go and check it out, but it wasn't long enough for Broxton.  (Is it ever?!)  Luckily, we were able to go back recently and again, good times were had!  FTC Compliant Review Policy:  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.

I love that when we go to Legoland Discovery Center (for the rest of this post, it will be called LDC to make it easier!)  in Atlanta, Broxton has a great time. For the longest time, it was a struggle with him being an only child when it came time to g…

Did you call it Junior High? ( We called it Middle School) #TheWonderYears Season Four

We are fans of The Wonder Years around here. I don't know if I ever told you this, but I tried to buy this on DVD years ago.  Little did I know that it was not an official version, meaning it was a bootleg version.  Talk about frustration!  Yes, it showed up on little DVD's in protective sleeves, not even in a case and once we tried to watch, we were in for a surprise... grainy reproductions on some and others didn't even work at all. Needless to say, we gave up on it and I learned my lesson.  I am so thrilled that Time Life has worked out all the details, because now we have each season on DVD and that means it is a happy house!!!! Here is information on Season Four of The Wonder Years...

Duluth, Georgia- #Endurocross Ticket #Giveaway

I am going to just jump right to it on this one. If you have been to any of my social media in the past, you know I am all about making memories.  It is fun having children and getting to experience so many things with them.  Some things are a first for them, sometimes it is a first for both of us.  What is amazing to me is that we get to do things that I wouldn't normally seek out and it ends up being something we all enjoyed.  I was recently contacted about hosting a giveaway for one lucky reader to attend a pretty cool sounding event in Atlanta on August 27th.  Read on to learn more!
