In The Looney Tunes Showscreen icons Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck return in this all-new modern comedy series, joined by fan-favorite Looney Tunes characters. Bugs and Daffy haven't changed but their living situation has. Bugs is as brazen, sarcastic and ahead-of-the-game as ever, and Daffy, despite his narcissistic, sociopathic and paranoid tendencies, is Bugs' best friend and seemingly permanent houseguest. No longer confined to seven-minute shorts, their larger-than-life personalities (and egos) offer an irreverent, comical take on our modern world and introduce a whole new realm of possibilities. Now Bugs and Daffy can wreak as much havoc at the grocery store or the DMV as they once did in the forest.

Rounding out the cast are Porky Pig, Lola, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, the Tasmanian Devil, Marvin the Martian, Tweety, Sylvester, Granny, Gossamer and the newest character of the bunch, Daffy's no-nonsense girlfriend, Tina. The series also features Merrie Melodies — animated music videos of original songs spotlighting everyone from Elmer Fudd to Pepe Le Pew — plus all new adventures with the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote in stunning CG.

The Looney Tunes Show Season 1 Volume 1 brings classic Looney Tunes to a brand-new generation of viewers and, while it stays true to the original cartoon, the look of the characters has been streamlined and updated with cutting-edge animation for a fresh and contemporary feel,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WHV Executive Director Non-Theatrical Franchise. She added, “These characters have been with us for decades and it’s wonderful to see them continue evolving. We think both classic Looney Tunes aficionados and newer viewers will embrace The Looney Tunes Show. It’s a must-have DVD for anyone who appreciates great animation.”

My Thoughts

I was a huge fan of Looney Tunes when I was a kid and my son loved Space Jam when he was growing up so  had no doubt that my kids would love the newest Looney Tunes show.  Before receiving the dvd, my kids and I had seen an episode of it and they really enjoyed it.  They were really excited to get to watch this dvd.  Overall my whole family loved the dvd and the kids watched it more than once since I opened it.  I Love the fact that I can share a new take on a classic cartoon with my kids.

The dvd was released this past Tuesday and is available at most retailers that sell dvds and is available online at for $9.99.  This is great for the Looney Tune fan and for any kid who has never had the chance to become a Looney Tune fan yet.  Hurry and get your copy today.

So this school year, I had to send another one of my precious babies to school.  Next year will be my youngest one's turn to go.  So the other day while I was organizing my life (or at least trying to), I realized something...

As my kids grow so does my stresses!

It is funny I suppose I have really always knew this but the other day i had a huge realization.  Before I had to just get one kid up and out the door for school and he is a boy which is so much easier.  Now I have a fashion diva who has to have her hair done and the perfect outfit and shoes.  It is more time consuming in the morning which makes me more stressed.  There is also 2 sets of homework to check at times.  Double the fundraising and fees.  Double the volunteering and requests.  As I look through stacks of papers to fill out and graded assignments I realize something even more stressing, next year there will be 3 in school.  Oh no!

At this very moment I realize i need to find a way to calm myself .  I mean after all I am a natural born worrier.  Just ask my fiancée, he has been trying to get me to quit worrying so much for years now and had no luck.  I worried as a child and even had ulcers cause of school tests.  Over the years though, I have learned techniques to help curb it.  One of my favorite ones is a nice relaxing shower.  I will take a nice hot shower with a great shower massaging shower head when the kids are asleep and ask the Lord to clear my mind and it is like the water washes away ever stress or worry I have.  Well, worth it if even just for a few minutes before one of the kids are beating on the door needing to pee...  

So moms and of course dads, the next time you are feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders take a relaxing massage shower.  If you do not have a massaging shower head then you can check out American Standard and the Professor Toilet blog that is full of bathroom tips covering everything from remodeling to tubs and showers.  He is sure to teach you all you need to know.

* I will receive a monoglide handheld shower from American Standard for this post.  I was not compensated in any other way and the above post is completely honest and completely my own.

My Thoughts

I have two little girls who seem to find every excuse at bedtime to need to get back up.  Normally I would go along for a few rounds of this , but since my oldest daughter now is in school too I can not do it anymore.  So I started looking for ways to help get them to sleep sooner and easier.  That is when I discovered Cloud B and Twilight Ladybug.  We received the green one shown above and my daughters love it.  It lights up there room and also entertains them til they drift off to sleep.  I love the fact that it shuts off after 45 mins and the girls are learning it is time to go to bed when it does.  The ladybug is helping me so much.  Now don't get me wrong I still have to fight with them some nights but it has definitely help.  

I really wish I would have had one of these when my kids were a baby.  They would make the perfect baby shower gift as well as gift for  a kid needing a night light.  They can be purchased online at Cloud B's website for $29.95.  Well worth the money in my opinion.  So if you have a kid not wanting to sleep at night or who needs a night light or you need the perfect baby shower gift, try Twilight Ladybug by Cloud B.

Everyone’s favorite four-legged friend Zeus (voiced by Joey Lawrence) and the Bannisters are back in The Dog Who Saved Halloween, an all-new adventure jam-packed with family-friendly thrills and chills!  When George, Belinda and their kids Kara and Ben Bannister move into a new house – just in time for Halloween! – everything seems to be fine…until they notice eerie glowing lights and strange sounds coming from their neighbor’s house where creepy Mr. Cole (Lance Henriksen) lives with his protective pooch Medusa (voiced by Mayim Bialik).  When a black cat suddenly goes missing, George Bannister (Gary Valentine) insists on investigating the matter himself – and ultimately enlists an odd yet familiar pair (Dean Cain, Joey Diaz) to help.  But after the trio and Belinda Bannister (Elisa Donovan) get trapped inside the spooky house, it’s once again up to Zeus to save the day! 

I am a sucker for a family movie with animals who talk or at least have voice overs.  My family absolutely loved this movie which was surprising since my son did not want to watch it at first.  Of course as the movie began and went on he thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.  I am definitely wanting to watch the other two movies now after this one.  This movie will be great just in time for the upcoming Halloween season and the great thing is it is already available for purchase.  You can get it at most retail stores that sell dvds or online at for $10.99.  So run out and get a copy just in time for Halloween.

Follow the witty and silly duo as they run into spooky trouble again! It's all fun and games for Garfield and Odie as they take a fun-filled trip on Halloween until Garfied is mistaken by a loose wild cat! 
Includes other out-of-this-world adventures. 

This DVD features 6 colorful, funny, adorable episodes of Garfield, Odie, John and the gang. 

My Thoughts:

My family loves Garfield just like I did as a kid growing up.  So the whole family was thrilled to get to watch this movie this past weekend.  The dvd was just over an hour and my kids loved every minute of it especially when Garfield was confused as a rare wild cat.  They have watched the movie again since then and still laughed just as hard.

This is definitely for any Garfield lover and would also be perfect and just in time for Halloween.  You should definitely get it fro any kid in your life or Garfield fan.  You can get it at most locations that sell dvds and online at for $11.70.

Quick Overview

 Princess Poppyseed’s life on her family’s farm is far from the glamorous world of her favorite
pop singer Vanna Banana.  While Princess milks the cows and dreams of a life on stage, 
Vanna has her own dreams of a life far from the hectic pace of stardom that leaves her feeling 
alone and lonely.  On a chance meeting at a playground, Vanna and Princess cross paths and 
realize they look almost exactly alike, which leads to the crazy notion that maybe they could 
switch lives!  In a flash, the girls’ secret plan is launched and Princess is whisked to her new life 
as a pop star while Vanna gets to live her dream of a life away from the pressure of fame!  As 
Princess tries to live up to the demands of being a diva and Vanna learns how to milk the cows, 
things don’t go as smoothly as they would like!  As each girl realizes the life they longed for 
doesn’t fulfill all their dreams, they learn that the life God gave them is the one for which they 
were uniquely and lovingly designed.

My Thoughts

I have been a huge fan of VeggieTales especially Larry Boy since they first came out.  My son 
loved them when he was a little kid and still does.  They are a great program with a great 
message.  My daughters were really excited about this movie and absolutely loved it.  My 
son liked it too just not as much as my daughters who loved the singing and the whole story.
I was also pleased that my daughters picked up quickly on the message that it is okay to just be 
yourself and love yourself.  I was also excited that after watching this movie they quickly went
through our other VeggieTales movies to find their next movie.  This is definitely another 
VeggieTales classic that is sure to really catch your little girl's eye (boys will like it too).

The movie is available where VeggieTales movies are sold and online at for 
$11.99.  So hurry and snatch one up for that special little girl.  This movie would make a great
gift for the upcoming holiday.

HEELYS review

For years, Heelys have been a hot trend among kids and even Usher jumped on the wagon awhile back in one of his music videos.  Now my oldest kid wanted a pair at one time but I refrained from getting him a pair simply for fear of him breaking his neck or for him getting in trouble for rolling through the school.

So when I recently got asked to review a pair , I jumped at the opportunity so I could see how safe and all they could really be.  Now i considered getting my son a pair but instead decided finally to get me a pair.  My main reason for this was so I could test them first and cause I have also heard that Heelys are a great form of exercise that is easy to do anywhere and all.

Now I spent several hours going back and forth on styles and such until I finally decided on the Heelys Wave in Aqua.

Now I was worried when I got them that they would be bulky like but they were not.  I actually like the shoes a lot.  Of course the true feat was "skating" with them.  Now I was never good at roller skating even though I always wanted to be so I was so nervous with these shoes.  Now I am still learning and taking my time but luckily Heelys offers tips and videos online to help any novice skater learn how.

I am hoping to completely master my Heelys shortly and maybe post my own Heelys video on here.  All in all my opinion for Heelys is good.  The wheels are easy to take out and now they have Heelys with two wheels in each shoe for younger kids to help them learn (which I think is just great).  They are a great exercise tool and will definitely be helping me lose some weight I hope. So if you have be nervous to get a pair for your kids or yourself don't be.

You can purchase Heelys at several shoe stores and online through several online stores.  You can check out the different styles online at Heelys. You can also follow Heelys on Facebook and Twitter for latest updates and discounts.

I am sure some of you have noticed my brief absence from my blog.  First I want to apologize for the lack of posts lately and want to tell you that I have several great posts coming soon.  I will also be announcing giveaway winners today and will be setting up more giveaways shortly.

I have been absence due to being sick and family issues.  All of which are improving slowly.  Hopefully my sickness has run its course and I will be back in full swing next week.  So be ready for a huge assortment of posts coming in the next week or so.
