WWE Happenings


Anyone who spends ANY time with my kids knows how obsessed they are with wrestling.  We live, eat, breathe, sleep WWE in our house.  It is quite comical actually, because it seems the only one in this house that is not very impressed with wrestling is ME.  This is mainly because I am really not in the mood to take these kids to the ER when they break a bone from all the slamming and bouncing and everything else they do to each other.  Oh dear!

Needless to say, I have been forced to learn about these wrestlers and what they are doing and who they are fighting.  I thought I would share some updates on what is going on in the world of the WWE in case there are other mothers out there, like me, who need a cliff notes version of what their kids (and husband?) are constantly talking about!

Cascade Platinum: Review and #Giveaway 2!

Cascade Prize Pack 2

Last month, I posted about the Cascade celebration we held at our end of summer block party.  What a fun time!  The winner of the first giveaway is Em.  She has been contacted about her prize.  CONGRATS!

We had so much fun, I decided to do it again at my son’s birthday party.  Every birthday celebration for our kids, we always give the other kids favors – goodie bags to take home.  What about the grown ups?  This time, while the kids were all outside in the yard playing birthday party games, I was inside with our family and friends telling them all about CASCADE PLATINUM!  And once again, it was a hit!

Joseph could not decide if he wanted a Wrestling or a Football themed birthday party when he turned five on September 18...

“The Amazing Dream Team Pets” @usfg #HolidayGiftGuide2014

Dream Team Pets is much more than a bedtime toy-it’s an innovative kid’s sleep aid that helps end the bedtime battles of trying to keep your child in bed. Developed with the help of a pediatrician, Dream Team Pets bedtime routine empowers kids as they reward their Pet with stickers and a certificate for a good night’s sleep. If the child wakes up from a nightmare, there are no hard feelings because the responsibility is on their Pet, but when they successfully sleep in their own bed, the kids feel a sense of accomplishment as they reward their Dream Team Pet. What makes this unique is that the kids think they are training their Pet, but really they are sleep training themselves!

Earth To Echo now out on Blu-ray and DVD! #giveaway #echoinsiders


We took the kids to see this movie in the movie theater back over the summer.  It reminded me of the 2014 version of E.T.  We had even given away some free screening passes.  The kids loved it and so did Paul and I.  It is a great family movie for movie night! Earth to Echo is a tale told through the eyes of Tuck, Munch and Alex, a trio of pals who make an out-of-this-world discovery. The best friends venture out of their neighborhood to find the true meaning of friendship. After receiving signals on their phones, they meet Echo, a small, but amazingly energetic, alien trying to make his way back to his home planet. As they race to help their new friend, the boys will discover that little Echo has touched their hearts in unexpected ways and changed their lives forever...
