Impractical Jokers: The Movie now avalible on digital

I was given a copy of this movie to provide my honest review
Impractical Jokers: The Movie

You can own this movie today via any digital platform!
If you are a fan of the Impractical Jokers tv show you so need to see this movie!  If you are not a fan of the show, this movie is the perfect way to start your new addiction.  These guys are hilarious.  For those of you who don't know it is a group of 4 friends that make each other do really funny\awkward things.  If you fail to do them you lose, if you lose there is an even funnier punishment!  The best part, the public doesn't realize that the guys are part of a tv show.  They just think they are crazy lol
I have watched this show for years with my hubby and dad, but this movie I have to say by far is the guys at their best.

Love Beyond words, Fairytale Brownies

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review.  All opinions are my own

I know I said this several times before, but I work in a school with special need kiddos.  Well I guess the correct term would be I "worked" in a school.  Like many others I have been sent home and told to stay home for an unforeseeable time.
The coronavirus has shaken the world and left us all scared.
These past few weeks have been heartbreaking and terrifying.  I miss my school kids, I'm scared for my family and I just don't know when it will end.  Several of my family members are nurses, both my grandparents are elderly and my pappy has had breathing problems his whole life.  My husband, brother, sister and dad all work in "essential" companies and cannot stay home.
I try to call as many of them as I can in a day and let them know I'm thinking about them.

I want to do more though.  I want to show my love beyond words.  A friend of mine sent me a card a few days ago and I felt the love on the pages, it brought a smile to my face. 
 My boys and I have been making silly videos to email my mom to bring a smile to her face.  My sons teacher calls and emails to check up on him.  

But I want to do more.  I want to know I made someone's day a littler brighter.  Made this tough time a little more bearable.  
Recently I was looking at one of my favorite companies web pages, Fairytale Brownies, and I came across the "Thinking of You" gifts.  These are perfect to send to long distant loved ones and in our current time when everyone is considered a long distant loved one!  I think we could all use a little sugary love right now

Wondering what is included in the Thinking of You boxes. 

 Well there is several sizes you can choose from.  The boxes can include brownies, cookies, blondies and fairytale bars.  And they come in a whole array of different flavors.  My favorite being the cheesecake brownie!  I'm going to be honest when my box arrived today I grabbed that one and the white chocolate one before anyone else in my family could have them lol.  Oh and they are all individually wrapped to guaranteed freshness.  And as someone who loves all things brownies I have to tell you, I tried to replicate these in my kitchen and have failed over and over.  They are truly a one of a kind flavor that you will fall in love with each bite.  The Thinking of You gift set is only one of many occasions you can shop for.  There is also holiday, birthday and so much more. 

Everyone is scared right now and unsure.  I bet a lot of people feel alone as well.  The Thinking Of You Fairytale brownie gift set is the perfect way to put a smile on anyone's face.  It sure did put a huge smile on my families faces today!

Better times are ahead.  Like all bad things this to shall pass.  I don't know about you, but when I look back I want to remember the good things.  The chance to make fun videos with my kids.  Long talks on the phone with loved ones.  A heart felt card from a friend.  And a gift of love I was able to send.

Just Mercy

I was give products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review

“Just Mercy” is based on the powerful and thought-provoking true story of young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Brie Larson). One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx), who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the main testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings, as well as overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds—and the system—stacked against them. 

BLU-RAY AND DVD ELEMENTS “Just Mercy” Blu-ray contains the following special features: · Making ‘Mercy’ · This Moment Deserves · The Equal Justice Initiative · Deleted Scenes “Just Mercy” DVD contains the following special features: · Making ‘Mercy’

My review:
It isn't often I watch a movie and have my emotions get involved.  I normally watch them, enjoy them and move on.  That was not the case with Just Mercy.  I lost sleep over this movie, because I cannot get over the unfairness that was shown to Walter McMillian.  And every time I thought the good guys were going to get a win it seems some unfair act was committed to take it away.  And what really got to me is this was a true story, and Walter McMillian wasn't he only victim of the acts/crimes commited.
I have to say Just Mercy is a must see movie.  It may not be an action packed movie, it isn't a love story, but it is the message is powerful.
