How Do You Hydrate Your Body? #EvenBetter

I partnered with PACt/Ocean Spray for this review.  All opinions within this post are my own. Has anyone else noticed how hot summer can get?  Yet summer is when we have the opportunity to spend the most time outdoors with family and friends.  Especially when temperatures are on the rise like they have been lately, staying hydrated is a must.  While I love to grab an ice cold water to quench my … [Read more...]

Organizing Photos and Videos with MiMedia #Giveaway

The dead laptop graveyard.....I am pretty sure I'm not the only one that has one of these.  It's where our much loved, but out dated laptops go to live in a basement, storage closet or wherever else we can find to stuff them.  Why? Because they contain our photos, videos and perhaps music that we couldn't live without.   We have these photos stored here and there and everywhere, but fear we may … [Read more...]

The Secret Life of Pets #Giveaway that Your Dogs will LOVE

Give Your Favorite Foods the Vegan Treatment

You might have learned in school that milk, meat and gluten were staples of a balanced diet, but many people today beg to differ. While you may not believe the food pyramid is pseudoscience, the prevalence of people staying healthy by ditching eggs, milk and meat may cause you to rethink your diet. Even if you love your cheeseburgers, you may have some guests at a summer pool party or barbecue … [Read more...]

Dory and Hank #FindingDory

Looking for Dory? Find her on the Big Screen Now!

I remember sitting in a theater with my nephew for his first movie ever on the big screen.  That movie was Finding Nemo and it quickly became one of my favorite all time animated films.   He was my first and only nephew at that time.  I remember being so amused as I watched him eat popcorn and candy, taken in thoroughly by the magic of Disney. Now 13 years later I got to sit in theaters again … [Read more...]

The Graves Family #FloridaGatorAttack

Show Love not Judgement for the Graves Family

A vacation should be a time for families to connect with one another.  A time for joy and happiness that provides memories that will last a lifetime.  It should not be a time for tragedy like the one experienced in Florida by the Graves family. My heart breaks for this family and my prayers go out to them.  I am a mom and as a mom, I try to protect my children from harm.  Most people that know … [Read more...]

Alice Through the Looking Glass, Magical or Not?

Anytime Disney brings something to the big screen, we expect something magical, right?  Well one would think so, however when I recently went to see Alice Through the Looking Glass, I wasn't as enveloped by the magic as I had hoped to be. In all fairness I have never been much of a Tim Burton fan and while he didn't direct this Alice in Wonderland sequel, I still felt his presence in the … [Read more...]
