Head to Walmart to grab Mighty Pups #PawPatrol before you can watch it on TV #ad

Want to see the Paw Patrol TV movie BEFORE it is televised?  Head to Walmart on September 11th and you can purchase this on DVD.  You read that right!   On DVD before you can watch it on TV!  I am pretty sure Savannah will be excited to see the Paw Patrol Movie, so we will be planning a movie night soon!  Don't worry parents, it is only 44 minutes long, so it won't be an all nighter!

Halloween Heroes - #PawPatrol #ad

Paw Patrol is big around here these days!  Something about those loveable pups!   I am still a fan of Marshall, I mean, he is just too cute (they all are, really!) and he makes me laugh.  Savannah still says Skye is her favorite... talk about excitement when her training panties had SKYE on them!   MOM WIN right there!!!!   I just wanted to make sure you knew that the hits keep coming, as far as Nickelodeon keeping Paw Patrol DVD's available! We don't watch DVD's as much as we used too, but it great to know we have them ready when need be - aka ROAD TRIPS!

The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom - Stop Motion Special #Ad

Image
I will be totally honest, I have never been a fan of Spongebob.  The boys loved it when they were young and Broxton loves it too.  That being said, he watches it at daycare, so I really can't say much.  I don't think there is really anything "wrong" with it, but just not for me.  Hey, if we were all the same, what a boring place this would be, right?  Anyways, Kids at daycare will be excited to know that Nickelodeon has a new DVD being released September 11th.  I do think it is pretty cool that this is a stop motion special!

The Case of the Stinky Stench is a must! #ad

Image
We fell in love with Josh Funk books when we were fortunate enough to be sent a review copy of Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast a bit ago.  We loved it and decided that we would share it with his class, so I took it and read it to them when I learned that there was a follow up book.  I thought that I shared this with you all, but it was stuck in my drafts... so now that we have a 3rd book coming out, I thought what better time than the present?

Love the imaginative play with @CCakeSurprise #ad

Toys sure have changed from when I was a kid.  I mean, I know we had some pretty cool things, but man oh man, did they come out with new toys like every single day back then?  I can't lie, some are pretty cool that makes me want to buy them for us to have (like we really NEED another toy) but then some make me wonder who thinks they need them and why?! We were recently at a store and spotted a doll that changed between a cupcake to a doll.  Of course, we had never seen them before and Savannah just HAD TO HAVE IT.

Once we got home, she was in love with this little cupcake surprise.  Little did we know that they had more than one size, more than one doll and .... get this... they are scented!   Oh, they went all out on the…

Explore and learn at @AudubonNature #NewOrleans #ad

Each year we go to Biloxi for a family get away.  It is usually a celebration for my birthday, but also a little family vacation before school starts back.  The last several years we make a day trip and drive over to New Orleans.  (If you have never been, you should totally go.. the food there is AMAZING!) The last couple years, I noticed the Insectarium and told myself to do more research as to what exactly this was.  I am NOT a fan of bugs, so I was not about to point this place out to Broxton...  Well, I checked it out online and it actually looked interesting. This year, I decided to see if we might be able to go check it out on our day trip.

Escape with @8OClockCoffee #ad

Image
I always like to know the history behind things... so imagine my curiosity when I learned of  Eight O'Clock coffee!  After visiting their site, I learned that the most popular times to drink coffee is... You guessed it!  8:00 AM and 8:00 PM.  Never knew that, as I sure enough thought it would be an earlier time!   Makes sense now that you think about it!

I was lucky enough to be sent a bit of eight o'clock coffee to review and let me tell you this, thanks to my Keurig, I am becoming more and more of a coffee drinker!  (Yes, it used to be very random to see me drinking coffee, but now it is crazy to catch me on a day that I have not had any!) Seriously, a nice cup of coffee to start the day... I have been known to en…

Summer is ending, Celebrate with a #Giveaway

Image
Summer is almost over.  Seems like school just got out for the summer and now here we are starting back.  I remember when I was in school we got 3 months off for summer... now seems like they are getting shorter and shorter.  Honestly, I would not mind year round school, if they incorporated nice long breaks in between, but I think I am in the minority on this one.  Seeing as though I am a working mom now, we really did not get much time to go and do like we have in the past, but I tried to make it as fun as I could.  We planned a trip to the beach for several days and let me tell you... WE HAD A BLAST!!!!   I do wish time would slow down, as I know my "babies" won't stay "babies" forever... but I honestly LOVE watching them grow up and become who they are.  Yes, I have hopes and dreams... all parents do, but in the end... I want them to be WHO they are meant to be!   


Since summer is coming to an end... and school has started back or is about to start, I thoug…

Show your creativity with Rusty Rivets

Image
I love that Nickelodeon is putting out new tv shows, but unfortunately Savannah is stuck on a couple favorites right now... We were sent Rusty Rivets for review and while we have not had a chance to check it out, I did want to let you know that it is headed out for purchase soon!   Maybe it would be great to grab for any last minute road trips before school starts back?!

Thrill Week with @zulily

I know one thing.... I spend more money on my kids than I do on me. Maybe that is a good thing, maybe not.. but it is what it is and I am not ashamed to admit it.  Let me fill you in on another thing, I love online shopping!  A friend recommended Zulily to me once and I have found many things on there I love!  Now, I get to share with you something fun coming up!

Do you know Nella?

Image
Savannah gets stuck on tv shows and movies and we have to watch a couple of them on repeat for a while.  I will be introducing Nella the Princess Knight to her soon.  I mean, look! 
She is a cute little Princess (Savannah is all about them these days!)  and she has a unicorn (Savannah has loved them for quite some time!)  A friend of mine mentioned that her girls love this show and she just spotted Nella toys, so looks like perfect timing to introduce a new friend, right?

Soccer Fever hitting your house? #Soccerborg #WorldCup

Image
As much as I love watching the University of Georgia Football team, not everyone knows about the college I attended.  It was a small liberal arts college that did not even have a football team!  (UGA was just too big for me, I never tried to go there!)  My college did have soccer though and of course I was friends with many on the soccer team.  Actually my roommate my first year played soccer, so there you go. Sadly, I don't know much about it, but I do like watching it.  Broxton has played a couple seasons, so when we were given the chance to review the new SOCCERBORG game from TOMY, I knew we would enjoy it!

July13th... #HotelTransylvania3 is out. Are you ready???

Image
Hotel Transylvania popped up on our radar a bit ago.  We watched it and loved it.  (To be honest, I love almost ANYTHING with Adam Sandler, so I thought it would be a good one.)  Broxton enjoyed the first Hotel Transylvania.. so when the second one came out, we knew we had to watch it as well.  Another winner for us... Now we are excited to see number 3.  It will be out on July 13th (that is Friday the 13th, perfect timing!)  and we are already planning to see it.  
We were lucky enough to be sent Hotel Transylvania and Hotel Transylvania 2 to add to our movie collection at home.  We have watched them numerous times already and you can bet that they even made it to the DVD player in the car!  Well, let me back up... We had to take them to the school where Broxton is going for the summer.  They have movie day everyday for the older kids to enjoy while the younger ones take their naps...  This was perfect as we kept telling everyone " you have to catch up on 1 and 2 to be ready for …

Beachin' it with @aquaballdrink #ad

Image
When we started planning our trip to the beach, I knew that we would want to take a cooler down with drinks ready for those long hot days.  I also knew that I did not want to take a cooler of soda, so I thought it would be great to bring along AquaBall! 
We were sent several for review and I am glad we got to try them out. The reason I say that is because I knew that the strawberry lemonade was going to be my go to flavor... I was surprised when it was my least favorite and I really liked the grape the best!  Of course the kids loved them all and the images on the bottle was a big hit!

Summer Travel saved with @plugable #ad

I don't know if your family likes technology as much as ours does, but I wanted to share with you a couple pretty neat products I have recently learned about.  Are you familiar with Plugable?  We were recently sent a couple products to check out and I am telling you, the 3 port smart charger (pictured below) was a huge help!

We recently took a family vacation and made a trip to the beach.  In my car, you can just plug the phone cord into the car, but in the car we took, I needed an adapter.  I don't know about you, but when you are ready to go, you really don't want to stop to buy things as you head out of town.  That was where the plugable 3 port smart charger came in to help save the day!
