My review:
I never heard of seen an advertisement for this movie.  When I read what it was about I thought it sounded really good........  And boy was I right!  My hubby and I watched this movie together and I fell in love instantly.  The acting goes above and beyond and it has the perfect balance of drama and comedy.  I wont lie ladies you may want to keep a box of tissues near by I had tears in my eyes...

NEW ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL Cat Litter review

NEW ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL Cat Litter review


Hello world its me Jekyll the cat!  That is Quinn he likes to give me kisses and hugs.

I'm guest posting today to tell you about my new favorite cat litter!!

As a cat my life is hard!  I have to sunbath for at least 3 hours each morning.  Then I'm expected to chase a tiny (evil) ball around the house.  There is a bell inside that I swear one day I shall get out.  I have to walk myself back to my dish to eat and several times a day mother yells at me to get off the curtains.... Doesn't she realize just how much fun it is to climb to the top?!?!?!  Oh and at night I'm expected to share my king sized bed with the humans.  Not to mention when I need to use the litter box!!  Did you know my old litter use to stick to my claws and leave dust all over the bathroom.  As much as I like to make mother do work I really dislike when she gets out that broom...  I hate that thing, but mother yells when I attack in when it begins to move.  Again I'm not sure why!

Anyway when I found out we would be using a brand new all improved litter I was beyond excited!  I can't wait to tell you all the reasons why.

NEW ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL
1)  This new litter clumps, which yes so did my old litter but it would make little balls of clumps that were impossible to get out.  The new Arm and Hammer Clump and Seal makes big clumps that are easy to remove.
2) Eliminates all odors for 7 days!!  Which means mother doesn't have to change it as much.  Huge plus for me I hate when she messes with my stuff.
3) Leaves very little to not dust on the floors.
4) None sticks to my paws!  Which is great I hate when the broom comes out.
5) Plus its softer on my paws!


I'm loving this new litter and I hope mother will keep buying it!  If you wish to learn more please see our link below:

Daddy & Company review


A few of you may remember my DaddyScrub reviews.  Well I would like to be the first to tell you that DaddyScrubs is now Daddy & Company!  Different name, but still the same great company and products!

Wondering what Daddy & Company is?
They have the best Daddy gifts!  Whether it be for an expecting, new or veteran daddy their products are sure to put a smile on any dad's face.
They have shirts, hoodies, hats, coffee mugs, water bottles and so much more!  All of them geared towards dads.
I reviewed a few items with their company in the past and each time I'm super impressed with how high quality the products are and how useful they are.  I also am always impressed with the amazing customer service.  I can tell the people behind this company are passionate about what they do!

This time around I was personally able to review the Word Search Daddy Pajama pants!  
(Little Quinn is crying in this photo.  He wanted to get a bath for bedtime (Santa brought bath paint he is obsessed lol)!!)



These would make the perfect V-day gift!  They are  only 1 pair of Pajama pants they have several other styles all of which would make an awesome gift to any dad... Or soon to be dad :)
 Daddy & Company Pajama Pants are 95% cotton, 5% spandex, the have a drawstring, 3 pockets and are available in the following styles: Word Search Daddy Pajama Pants, Red Hot Daddy Pajama Pants and Love Daddy Pajama Pants.  According to my hubby they are super comfy.  Oh and to really top it off you can get matching boxers!!



If you wish to learn more about Daddy & Company please see my link below:

And remember the items I review are only 1 of the many products offered at their site.

Valentine Day Pretzels and DIY Sundae Kit

Valentine Day Pretzels

and DISundae kit!
This year the hubby and I are saving money on V-day gifts.  We of course are going to have a date night where we go to the movies and out to dinner. FYI this is never done on Valentine's Day we hate crowds and my hubby can't wait for anything lol.  So I'm thinking the next day.  Fingers crossed he will agree to see Vampire Academy as our movie :)


Anyway back to our cheap V-day we decided to do homemade gifts.  And we also decided to keep it under $20

For my hubby I'm making Valentine Day Pretzels and a do it yourself Sundae kit 
Below I will describe how to do both!


Valentine's Day Pretzels

Need:
 Square pretzels 
Hershey's Kisses (I like the striped ones they look a lot cuter... avoid any with nuts they wont work)
plain M&Ms 
 Directions:
 Preheat oven to 200°. 
 Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. 
 Line up your pretzels and then place a Hershey kiss on top

 Bake for 4-5 minutes make sure your chocolate is soft, but not melted 100%.  I keep a very close eye on them.
Remove from the oven and quickly/carefully place a M&M in the center of each Hershey kiss
You can press down if you like.
Allow to cool complete..

And ta-da your done :)


And yes that blank spot you see with the chocolate is where I taste tested!!  SO YUMMY lol



DIY Sundae Kit


My hubby has a sweet tooth.  It is his weakness lol.  When I was  debating what to make him for V-day I knew from the start it would involve something sweet.  And then he started to complain about all the icecream shops not being open until Spring.  And it got me thinking why not give him the gift of Icecream...  And no I don't mean I bought him a tub of icecream I made him a DIY Sundae Kit.  Not only was it fun to make, but I was able to stick to my budget



Did I mention how easy this was to put together?
Wondering what is inside...

Sundae Spoon 
Caramel 
Chocolate syrup
Waffle bowl cones
crushed up wafers
Crushed up berry oreos
crushed up fudge cover pretzels
and of course sprinkles
Most of the stuff I already had at my house!  

V-day doesn't have to cost a lot it can be done cheap and it should be more about spending time with the ones you love.


I still have to put the kids gifts together.  I'm not 100% sure what they are getting yet :)

Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks review




I will admit before my review I have never heard of this show before.  I am beyond excited though that I had the chance to review because my kiddos absolutely adore Jakers!!!

Synopsis:

In present day, Piggley lives with his 3 grandkids and their mom.  Whenever the kids have a promblem Piggley tells then a heartwarming story that is filled with moral lessons.  We flash back to 1950 Ireland (As a Irish girl I LOVED this!!) where Piggley learns life lessons with his family and friends.  The stories are all aimed towards young kids and highlight the importance of relationships and family.

I was able to review:
Jakers! Wish Upon a Story
Jakers! Legends of Raloo
Jakers! Rock around the Barn

Each episode is adorable and had both my kids and I smiling.  Jakers stories are heartwarming and each contain a life lesson worth learning.  I loved how afterwards my kids begged me to tell them stories of my Childhood!  I wont lie my life wasn't as adventurous as Jakers, but my kids loved hearing about me when I was little and I was happy that Jakers made them want to hear my stories :)
I'm sure you can see from the covers just how cute all the characters are.

I highly recommend these DVDS to anyone with small children or grandchildren!  They are sure to put a smile on any face

This post is part of my Valentine's Day Guide!
Best Man Down 

About:
Best Man Down is both heartfelt and funny.  BEST MAN DOWN makes its way down the aisle on Blu-ray and DVD January 21 from Magnolia Home Entertainment. The film features an amazing cast including Justin Long (“New Girl,” Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story), Jess Weixler (“The Good Wife”), Tyler Labine (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, “Reaper”), Addison Timlin (Stand Up Guys, Derailed), Shelley Long (“Modern Family,” “Cheers”) and Golden Globe nominee Frances O’Connor (“Mr. Selfridge,” The Hunter).

When their obnoxious and over-served best man, Lumpy (TYLER LABINE), unexpectedly dies at their destination wedding in Phoenix, bride Kristin (JESS WEIXLER) and groom Scott (JUSTIN LONG) are forced to cancel their honeymoon and fly home to the snowy Midwest to arrange for his funeral. But getting Lumpy's body back to Minneapolis is just the start of their adventure, as the well-intended sacrifice surprises at every turn. And when the newlyweds' path leads them to a fifteen-year-old girl in a small, northern Minnesota town - all bets are off on who Lumpy really was.

My review:
My hubby and I really liked it!  I wont say its our favorite movie ever, but we both enjoyed sitting down and having a movie night :).  I like that it had emotional parts that I enjoyed and humor so my hubby was able to laugh and get his comedy fix.  There were times when we were laughing out loud and parts where we were on the edge of our seat hoping everything turned out for the best.  I def. recommend this movie in my personal opinions its perfect for a Valentine's Day movie date night :).

Staying fit with Music

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free

Staying fit with Music


Like most people every year I plan to get fit.  Regardless if its eating healthy or working-out  more I'm always trying something new to make myself look and feel better.  In the past I noticed working-out is a bit difficult for me.  Why you may ask?  Because as I'm trying to jog or do a workout video all I can think about is all the chores I have to do at home or what I need to get at the store.  I needed something to get my mind off the everyday tasks so I could focus on working-out.

My hubby suggested listening to music.  At first I thought no that will just distract me even more.  I was so wrong!!  Not only does it take my mind off all my chores at home I lose track of time and end up working out more then I normally would have.  

I will be honest and tell you I'm clumsy I'm not one of those classy runners....  I stumble and it most likely looks like I'm always on the verge of collapsing.  I needed something that would stay in place.  After a lot of research my hubby got me Yurbuds!  I love them not only do they stay in place, but they deliver my music perfectly and they are comfortable.  Yurbuds has make my workout 100% better then what it use to be!

Routines

Routines 

I have to admit I'm one of those moms who likes everything in order.  I'm sure you know with a 6 and 3 year old that nothing is ever as it should be and the word "order" is the equivalent of a myth.  None the less I do try to have some balance in my life.  The ones I try to focus the most on is sleeping and waking.
Why you may ask?
I feel that both are super important.  How you start and finish your day can determine everything.
If my little guys gets to bed too late he is tired and doesn't do good in school.  Or if we are rushing in the morning I forget his lunch, coat or hat ect...

2014 RESOLUTIONS

2014 RESOLUTIONS

Every year at this time I come up with a huge resolution that I know I will never follow.  Then after not following through I get discouraged and feel as if I failed.

So this year I'm doing things a bit different!  I have a HUGE to do list.  You know the little things that you keep pushing off until you have time to do them.  Well this year I'm forcing myself to tackle them all!
Here is my list:
Get an out of debt plan
Un-clutter my home
Spend more time with my hubby

Okay so I know not a huge list, but still its nice to get these things done.  I want to give a few tips on how I plan to do each of them.
