Paddington Bear 2

My boys and I are famous for our epic movie nights!  It is nothing for us to build a fort in our living room, set up a snack table and spend several hours watching our favorites. It normally happens when one of us are sick or the weather outside isn't the best.
This past week we all suffered some stomach bug.  It wasn't fun for anyone but we did get to have a movie weekend!!

The top movie on our list was Paddington Bear 2

Following the worldwide hit “Paddington,” one of the most successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated sequel finds Paddington (Ben Whishaw) happily settled with the Brown family in London, where he has become a popular member of the local community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes.

While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. Hilarity and adventure ensue when the book is stolen and Paddington and the Browns must unmask the thief.

It was just as fun as the first one!  Paddington was sweet and of course trouble just seemed to follow him.  Our poor Paddington finds himself in jail.  His high antics follow him even there!!  Lets just say the prisoners got a lovely pink makeover!!  But do not worry dear readers as always his loved ones pull through and help him, not only be released from jail they also help him find the thief!
This is a must seem family film that is sure to leave everyone giggling and wanting more!

Own it Early on Digital on March 27
Blu-ray debuts on April 24

Lemi Shine Review

Disclaimer:  The products in this post were given to me for the purpose of review   I was not paid in any way to write this review all opinions are my own.

Lemi Shine Review

 So I have a awesome announcement my hubby has agreed to let me get a dish washer :)!! I know pretty sad I get excited over a dish washer, but I'm sick of hand washing. The point I'm trying to make though is I am now a dish washing newbie.
Umm for the record I had no clue how to load it!!  I opened that bad boy up and spent the next several minutes trying to figure out how to get everything in.  I wont lie I messed it up the first time lol.  Then I had to figure out which cycle I wanted to use.  Why couldn't there just be one called, "dishes be clean."
So far I only had the chance to use a few products, but I have already feel in love with Lemi Shine.  This is a product my mom uses and she highly recommended it to me, even before I agreed to write this post.
I was able to review a few products.  Some I already used and a few I have now added to my must have cleaners!

Lemi Shine dishwashing deterent

You can be confident in using Lemi Shine Dish Detergent, powered by 100% natural citric extracts. Not only does the powder + gel combo pac look cool, but it increases the power of each ingredient! Say farewell to stuck-on food, and goodbye to grease.


Even though I wish everything could go into the dish washer a few things still need to be hand wash.  I have a griddle with an eclectic cord that cannot go into the dish washer.  But washing isn't so bad now that I only have a few things to hand wash
A better clean starts with a better cleaner. Lemi Shine® Concentrated Liquid Dish Soap with powerful citric extracts cuts right through grease (with long-lasting suds even in hard water), but is safer for your family. And with Lemi Shine® Dish Soap's READYFLO™ inverted technology, the no-drip valve allows for easy, one-handed use, so you get the most out of every last drop. Just flip the lid, click it back and place inverted on the countertop.

Shine and Dry Rinse

Bring back the shine with Lemi Shine natural rinse aid. Our shine and dry formula is powered by 100% natural citric extracts resulting in naturally shiny dishes. Lemi Shine Rinse removes residual hard water deposits like iron, calcium, lime and rust during the final rinse cycle. Do you want perfect, spotless, streakless, speechless dishes and glassware? Add a natural rinse aid to your dishwashing routine. No need to run the heated dry cycle, which saves energy, money, and time.

Natural rinse aid

  • Natural active ingredients
  • Formulated for all water types
  • Super concentrated
  • Septic system friendly
Dish Detergent Booster
The #1 Dish Detergent Booster, known best for removing the toughest hard water spots and film, leaving your dishes Clean Freak Clean.
More often than not, hard water is the culprit defacing your dishes. Lemi Shine® fights back against the minerals in hard water (magnesium and calcium) to give you Freaky Clean dishes. Use with your dishwashing detergent in every load.
  • Phosphate Free
  • Biodegradable
  • Non-Toxic
Lemi Shine® Dish Detergent Booster is available in 12oz and 24oz sizes. Also available in easy to use pre-measured pacs!

Teeth beware Plackers Kids Flossers are here!

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review  I was not paid to write this review

My boys are up before 6am.  Their bus comes at 6:50 and because I need to leave right from the bus stop to go to work it is always hectic.  And there is 2 things that I dread every single morning; brushing of the teeth and finding their shoes.  Now trust me we have a spot to put our shoes.  My kiddos just refuse to do it.  So each morning we spend 10 minutes looking for them.  It isn't that big of a deal.  They are somewhere in the house we just need to find where. 

The teeth brushing though is a thing of nightmares.  There is always tears, my oldest even gags and threatens to puke, I need to stand over them and make sure they just don't get the tooth brush wet.  Than every single morning I need to explain why we need to floss and use mouth wash.  Which than triggers more tears and gagging and by this point in time even I am ready to pull out my hair and scream!

Don't worry dear readers I am not here to say oh but I found a product to make all this go away.  Sadly I think I will be forced to live this personal Hell for many more years to come.  But I do want to say using Plackers does make it a bit easier! And it is a product I have used before writing this post.

Plackers® Kids Flossers are specially designed to promote healthy habits from an early age – which is not always an easy task. These flossers for kids feature a dual grip handle and angled head that provide easy use for kids of all ages. Each Plackers Kids Flosser contains fluoride to promote healthy teeth.
  • Reduces tooth decay and promotes healthier gums for children
  • Provides fluoride and is not manufactured with BPA materials
  • Fruit Smoothie Swirl flavor and colored flossers that make flossing fun for kids

  Reasons I love Plackers Kids Flossers 
1)I no longer need to measure out floss and hope I have a long enough piece
2) My kids always claim they can't reach their back teeth with the string, but with the Plackers they can easily get it
3) They have more control over them and can get hard to reach areas
4) They now come in fun kid flavors!  I don't know about you, but if I tell my kids something is fruit smoothie swirl flavored they are a bit more likely to use it!

And with Easter just a few days away these are perfect for Easter baskets!  Break up all the candy with must have Plackers Kids Flossers!

I have no complaints about this product.  I do wish my kids would just wake up one day and decide they love keeping up with their oral hygiene...  But lets face it they will never happen.
The least I can do is make it slightly easier with Plackers
