Volcano Alert! #OctonautsLive was great!

Image
We recently had the opportunity to go and see Octonauts Live in Atlanta.  It was their first tour in the USA and it was great!!!  I was not sure how Savannah was going to do, but her eyes were glued to the stage pretty much the whole time.  It was also our first time at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center and that was a very nice venue and AWESOME for kids!!!!

Parking was easy and once we arrived we hurried inside where they had souvenirs and concessions for sale.  They also had a few photo ops staged, so that was a great way to document the evening.  


The show starts and we immediately get to see the characters that the kids know and love.  Captain Barnacles, Medic Peso and Lieutenant Kwazii are there and the kids go NUTS!…

Stocking Stuffer or Gift Topper, #Emojiez has you covered! #JBGiftGuide16

Image
You know how Emojiez are all the hype right now?  Broxton (age 7) has no cell phone or anything, but he LOVES getting my phone and sending Emojiez in text messages to my parents and my brother. I honestly don't think he can send a message at all that he doesn't have to add a few Emojiez at the end.  We were sent a selection of their products for review and Broxton had to take the stickers to school to share with his friends.  They loved them and he loved being able to share a smile (literally and figuratively!)  with his friends.

If you are looking for something for Stocking Stuffers this year (or even a cute gift topper for a special someone!)  look at the Emojiez line.  I have seen a few shirts that I want to …

Yesterday I shared how Season Six of the Wonder Years was available to own... Well, for those that have not purchased each season individually, you also have the option to just purchase the complete series as a whole.

For six seasons, The Wonder Years captured the angst of growing up in suburban middle-class America in the late '60s, as seen through the life and times of Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage).  Audiences eagerly followed his evolution as a typical awkward teenager who remembered every moment of his transition from childhood with excruciating detail and remarkable hindsight.  From his first kiss with Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) to his friendship with Paul Pfeiffer (Josh Saviano) and the ups and downs of the A…

Be prepared for indoor play with #floof and #sandsalive #JBGiftGuide16

I don't know about your house, but around here the Christmas lists are a bit hard to figure out. I was telling a blog friend of mine that I have started having to write down what I buy each year, as I seem to gravitate towards the same gifts.  Yes, my dad was gracious about it, but he did get a nice grilling set two years in a row.  My brother didn't mention it, but I am pretty sure he got a great knife set two years as well.  I am not 100% on the knives, but I know I went to buy him a set this year and was like, HOLD UP.. I am thinking I got him one before, I came home and looked and yep... been there/done that!  
So, what do you do in that situation? You look for great gifts that are new, or at least new to us.  I was lucky that we were sent a couple great gift idea's from Sands Alive and Floof. If you are not familiar with this brand, keep reading... We love it!
