6 Ways to Fix a Terrible, Horrible, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY (Week)

We've had a really bad week and a half. Special thanks to Click Communications for sending us an early release copy of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY (available on Blu-Ray on 2/10/15) and other fun products to help us get out of our funk and have a great time! I'm not going to complain about this to you (much), but with cold, flu, and virus season, we pretty much had a terrible, horrible, no good, VERY BAD WEEK last week. As in craptastic. The kids were on again, off again, sick all week long and luckily for me...they took turns! One would be fine in the morning (no fever, no cough, no signs of *shudder* vomit) and they'd head to school. I'd get a call around the end of the day that one of them was sick. Again.

But Friday, they were both feeling great and I wanted to kick this terrible, horrible, no good, VERY BAD WEEK and cheer them up. Oh … [Read more...]

A Night at Scare School: Monsters U, Scare Tactics, and Colored Popcorn

Before I get into this scary tale, I should let you know that I received the Collector's Edition Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack, with bonus features, of Disney Pixar's Monsters University to facilitate this family movie night from Click Communications and their client. As always, all of the photos, ideas, and opinions expressed here are entirely my own.Did you miss Disney Pixar's Monsters University in theaters earlier this year? Yea, we did too and I was bummed. I loved seeing Monsters, Inc. in the theater with my older girls years ago and had looked forward to bringing the babies to watch this hilarious prequel at the theater. But, as always, life got in the way. School started, cold and flu season hit, and life just go crazy so it never happened. BUT never fear (pun intended), you can now learn to be a Scarer from the comfort of your own home. That's right! This monsterrific masterpiece became available in store and online on Blu-ray and DVD on October 29, 2013. Y'all know how much we … [Read more...]

Popcorn in the Living Room with Disney’s Gravity Falls Six Strange Tales

As part of a sponsored post for Click Communications and their client, I actually allowed the babies to eat popcorn in my living room for family movie night. As always, all opinions, ideas, photos, and messes in my floor are entirely my own.You might be asking yourself what in the world would make me break my own rules and allow eating in my living room. Was it a temporary moment of insanity? Was I just tired of being the warden? Nope. We received an early release copy of Disney Channel's popular animated TV series, Gravity Falls, and we decided to sit down as a family, with popcorn, for a fun family movie night with these Six Strange Tales.Welcome to Gravity Falls...It's Just West of Weird...Slightly East of Eerie...And Always North of Normal!As soon as I turned on the movie, the babies were glued to the TV and their popcorn. I love hearing their laughter and these six episodes were side-splitting funny. This was a much needed break in our busy school/work schedules. And surprisingly, … [Read more...]
