Dream a Little Dream with Disney’s Teen Beach 2

Enjoy wholesome family fun while sparking your child's imagination with a family movie night watching Disney's Teen Beach 2. We received a complimentary copy of the DVD, now available at retailers everywhere, from Click Communications to facilitate this post, but all opinions are entirely my own. Family movie night can be a pretty big deal around here. We take the time to select a movie everyone will enjoy, whip up themed food and drinks, or just pop some popcorn, then we sit down on the couch huddled together as a family and watch our new movie of choice. Kind of makes a mom's heart happy so I try to encourage one every single week. This past weekend we had a lot to celebrate and one of those celebrations included watching the newly released DVD of Disney's Teen Beach 2. Bug loved the first one and she watches it absolutely every time it comes on TV so she was especially thrilled when she found out this was the movie of choice this weekend. As for the rest of the family, anything … [Read more...]

Strange Magic Party Plan: Everyone Deserves to be Loved!

Just so you know, I received an early release copy of Strange Magic on DVD and some other really fun products to facilitate this party plan post from Click Communications, but all ideas, opinions, and photos are entirely my own.  Oh my singing stars, y'all! Strange Magic was released in stores on DVD today, 5/19/15, and I'm in love. Have I ever told you about my love of musicals, and animation, and stories of true love? No? I've failed you. I was in my first musical production at the age of 11 (the cut off age was 12, but they made an exception because I was SOOO close and my audition was that awesome...so they said), and well...to this day, it's still one of the highlights of my life. I was in a few more productions over the years and was bound for the big screen (in my head), but life got in the way. Mommyhood was my destiny and I'm totally cool with that, but I've never lost my love for musicals, the stage, and the silver screen in general. I try to pass that love along to my … [Read more...]

Spring Break Savior: Transformers Armada, The Complete Series

I should totally tell you up front that I received a copy of this DVD for review purposes fromClick Communications on behalf of Shout! Factory Kids. As always all opinions and ideas are entirely my own. At our house this week, it's spring break. What does that mean? I have to entertain the kids. Have you met my kids? No. That's not always an easy task. Luckily, this week, an amazing series was released on Blu-ray and DVD and Transformers is one of  Bubby's favorites.  Woohoo and YAY! This Collectible 8 DVD set offers them HOURS of entertainment and allows mommy some time to work, cook, and clean while they enjoy themselves. To me? That's a total score! We got the set a week or so ago, but this week, it was available to the public so you can go out and buy it too. How cool is that? "Brace yourself to relive some of the most astonishing TRANSFORMERS battles between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS through the complete series release of TRANSFORMERS ARMADA. In 2002, TRANSFORMERS fans … [Read more...]

Adventure Time: The Complete 3rd Season

For the record, I received the following Blu-Ray and DVD combo pack with bonus features from Click Communications and their client. As always, all of the photos, ideas, and opinions are entirely my own. Come out and play with BMO and the gang! Cartoon Network just released ADVENTURE TIME: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON on Blu-ray and DVD on February 25th. It's packed with more than four hours of episodes plus an alternative show intro and episode commentary for all 26 episodes. My kids (including my 19 year old) are huge fans of ADVENTURE TIME so having this on hand is great for us! There isn't always time for a movie night like I'd like. And sometimes when I'm really busy and Bubby wants to watch something on TV but none of his shows are on (cracks me up that a 5 year old has "shows"), I can pop this in and we can watch as little, or as much, as we'd like. The  disks come in a custom collectible BMO die-cut slipcase that transforms your Blu-ray and DVD packaging into your very own … [Read more...]

The kids, B, and I just can't watch it enough and WE, the family that lives under a rock, even went to see this one in the theater when it was released. Last night, we decided to have … [Read more...]

Dinner & A Movie with Marvel’s Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United

I really should tell you that I received the following Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack with bonus features to facilitate this family movie night from Click Communications and their client. As always, all of the photos, ideas, and opinions are entirely my own.I try to make Wednesday nights fun nights around here. I don't know why. Maybe it's because we made it half way through our busy week. Maybe to keep the babies pumped for the rest of the week. Or maybe because fun nights just mean I get to take a little time off and enjoy time with my family in the evening. So this week, fun night called for dinner and a movie. Bubby LOVES Super Heroes. In fact, I think he's pretty much a super hero himself. Seriously, he's always dressing up as one super hero or another. So when I heard that Marvel's Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United was available on DVD and Blu-ray on 12/3/14, I knew exactly which movie we'd be watching. And of course dinner had to fit the theme. Do I think that Hulk pizza looks just … [Read more...]
