I am excited to see Disney's next upcoming blockbuster - Frozen.  And now we finally have a chance to catch the NEW movie trailer for FROZEN!  So enjoy it after you check out the description below...

Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.

* I received the below mentioned product solely for review purposes.  The below mentioned opinions are completely honest and completely my own.

Your favorite little princess-in-training returns for more music, majesty and magical fun, so get ready to have a ball with Sofia the First. Becoming royalty overnight is every girl’s dream, and Sofia is eager to prove she can be a true princess. Visit an enchanted circus, meet a pet dragon and soar through desert skies with Sofia and Amber on a magic carpet ride. But when their high-flying adventure veers off course, it’s special guest Princess Jasmine to the rescue with inspiring advice about trying new things, staying strong and trusting yourself. Sparkling with extraordinary songs, unforgettable characters and thrilling surprises, Ready to Be A Princess opens the door to a whole new world of kindness, helping others and being the best you can be.



My oldest daughter is a huge fan of the Disney Princesses so it was no surprise that she fell in love with Sofia the First.  My daughter considers herself to be a princess in training so she really loved the dvd.  

I of course loved the fact that every episode has a good message for both of my "princesses in training".  I also have to admit that I actually like the show too.  I mean that's hard to say about a lot of shows nowadays.

The dvd features 5 episodes that total almost 2 hours and one of the episodes features the beautiful Jasmine from Aladdin.  The dvd is available now where dvds are sold nationwide and of course at online retailers like Amazon for $ 14.29.  

So be sure to grab your "princess in training" a copy today and of course it would also make an excellent gift idea for the upcoming Holidays!!!

ENJOY SOME "CROODACEOUS MOMENTS" before the OCTOBER 1st release of THE CROODS on blu-ray and dvd

The Croods are coming to dvd and blu-ray on October 1st.  My family and I are definitely excited about this movie and are definitely planning on adding it to our movie collection.  You can pre-order the movie now on Amazon for $ 19.99.  

Of course while you are waiting for it; you can enjoy this awesome clip featuring "CROODACEOUS MOMENTS!"


* I was sent the below mentioned products solely for review purposes.  All the below mentioned opinions are completely honest and completely my own.

Each collectible figure combines the awesome styling of Friendship Is Magic with classic dolls, giving girls a chance to combine their favorite horses. Each figure has hair that matches her pony counterpart, plus a dress that builds on her own unique personality and cutie mark. 

My daughters are huge My Little Pony fans especially my oldest one.  SO when they heard about the new edition of My Little Pony dolls from the Equestria Girls dvd, well, they squealed with delight.  So I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to review not one but two of the Equestria Girls dolls - Rainbow Dash and Shutterfly.

I have to say I was so impressed by how much came with each of these dolls.  They each had a change of clothes and shoes and even a hairpiece for the girls.  MY daughters were thrilled that they had an extra outfit for each doll.  They also loved that each doll had their own signature cutie mark on their face.

First about Rainbow Dash, I have to say I simply love her hair.  It is her signature mixed colors and I have to say it is beautiful!  Her clothes are bright rainbow colored as well.  My oldest daughter simply loved the doll and the fact that her knees and elbows moved was a plus.  Trust me this doll is getting tons of playtime with both my daughters.

Next about Shutterfly, who is simply beautiful too with soft features like her pony character.  She has a set of wings since she is a pegasus after all ( Rainbow Dash has a set too ).  She also has an adorable outfit that has built in wings made of a see through material that my daughters love.  

My daughters love swapping the dolls' clothes with each other and have been playing with these dolls nonstop since they opened them.  I have to say any My Little Pony fan would love these dolls especially if they loved the Equestria Girls dvd.  The dolls are available now nationwide where toys are sold and online at retailers like Amazon for around $27 or $29 depending on which doll you are interested in it.  You can check out Rainbow Dash and Shutterfly on Amazon now.  Trust me I think these dolls will be really hot this Holiday season.  My daughters already have the rest of the series on their want list!

So be sure to grab one today for your My Little Pony fan today!

Top 10 Phil-isms

Available on Blu-ray & DVD September 24

Phil Dunphy brings the laughs with every episode of Modern Family! An entire book could probably be created just from the hilarious things he says (oh wait, there’s that fantastic Phil’s-osophy book).  Take a look below at the ten very best Phil-isms!

The laughs – and the awards – just keep on coming for the #1-rated “Modern Family,” winner of three consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series! With Jay and Gloria’s baby on the way and Haley going off to college, the entire Pritchett/Dunphy clan faces some major surprises as they bicker and bond over house-flipping headaches, unwanted play dates, and everything from hot-tempered hormones to in utero karaoke. Featuring a stellar array of guest stars including Matthew Broderick, Shelley Long and Elizabeth Banks, Season Four takes a heartfelt and laugh-out-lough hilarious look at what it means to be a “Modern Family.”

1.      “Always keep the rhythm in your feet and a little party in your shoulders.”
2.      “When life gives you lemonade, make lemons. Life will be all like ‘Whaaat?!’”
3.      “If you love something, set it free… unless it’s a tiger.”
4.      “I always felt bad for people with emotionally distant fathers; it turns out I’m one of them. It’s a miracle I didn’t end up a stripper.”
5.      “I’ve always said that if my son thinks of me as one of his idiot friends, I’ve succeeded as a dad.”

6.      “The most amazing things that can happen to a human being will happen to you, if you just lower your expectations”
7.      “Claire likes to say ‘you can be part of the problem or part of the solution.’ But, I happen to believe you can be both.”
8.      “I am brave. Roller coasters? Love 'em. Scary movies? I've seen Ghostbusters like 7 times. I regularly drive through neighborhoods that have only recently been gentrified. So yeah I am pretty much not afraid of anything.”
9.      “Always look people in the eye, even if they’re blind. Just say ‘I’m looking you in the eye.’”

10.  “A Realtor's just a ninja in a blazer. The average burglar breaks in and leaves clues everywhere. But not me. I'm completely clueless.”

BFAST is the SOLUTION to a QUICK BREAKFAST review and giveaway

* I received the below mentioned products for review purposes only from MyBlogSpark.  My opinions are completely honest and completely my own.

As a mom, I am constantly on the go which usually means I have a limited amount of time to actually sit and enjoy breakfast or lunch at times.  So I was excited to hear about BFAST - a nutritious breakfast shake for people like me.

Sometimes breakfast just doesn’t fit! Early morning got you up before the coffee shop opens? Slow going after a long night out? Trying to hit the gym and get right to work? , You don’t have to skip out on the most important meal of the day – get a boost with BFAST breakfast shakes! 

With three great flavors to choose from – Chocolate, Vanilla and Berry – offering 8g of whole grain (at least 48 grams whole grain recommended daily) and 3g of fiber, BFAST offers you all the nutrition of a bowl of cereal and milk* in an easy-to-take-with-you drink for whenever and wherever you find your stomach growling!


In my household, I am not the only one who has limited time for breakfast.  My fiancee actually has less time in the morning than me so I knew BFAST would be great for him to get the nutrients he needs before a full work day.  BFAST was great in the fact that he could grab it will he ran out the door on his way to work.  I loved the fact that I knew he was getting the equivalent of a meal instead of having to wait til lunch to eat.  This is really needed since he can have low sugar issues at times.

My fiancee really liked the shakes and since we received 2 of each of the 3 flavors, they were gone in no time. I tried a little of the vanilla myself and liked it too.  I am actually planning on getting more so he can always have a quick breakfast for those mornings he does not have time to sit and eat.

Now is you are interested in trying BFAST, you can search here to find a store near you.  I definitely recommend them to those who have a tight schedule and find times that breakfast could be sacrificed.

Now I have some exciting news,  one lucky reader will have the opportunity to receive the same prize pack that I did ( shown below )...

  • 2 samples of each flavor of BFAST Breakfast Shake
  • Car cooler and organizer
  • Retail Value: $58
So be sure to enter the Rafflecopter form below.  GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!!
