manwich #manwich recipes

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Manwich for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.   Dinner time is family time at my house. While we never sat a the dinner table growing up, we all still gathered together for dinner and I think that is how I always want my family to be. It gives me time to sit with my kids and it gives us all time to eat and sit in each others presence. I don't think we do much talking about dinner but that is not what it is about is it? It is time to eat.  As a mom, I want to have something that … [Read more...]

Preparing for Traveling

Insurance and Traveling Preparing for any much-needed holiday can be a challenging task. I love to travel and so do my children. They want to get in the car and just go where ever. My friend call it adventures of stroller mom. I have only been on a few long trips with them though. They think its easy to get up and go but there are a lot of factors to consider for traveling. Two of the most important factors to consider are auto insurance and car safety. In essence, these ideas are just as important as planning your budget or deciding upon where to … [Read more...]

This should be titled Reason Number Five Billion Why Chris Pratt is Awesome. He is so freaking funny. I cannot even. I am so glad they picked him for this part because he totally makes it. Chris Pratt should win all the awards. Well, the awards that Vin Diesel doesn't win.  Watch the video below to see Chris Pratt give a tour of the Milano. If you have not seen the movie, this is Peter Quill's ship and there may or may not be spoilers.  Why don't you try it and see? I am joking.  You can watch it.  There aren't any spoilers, there is just … [Read more...]

My children play rough all day long and I can hardly keep up with them especially when it comes to cleaning up after them. I was sad when school started but only for a few days. I can finally get them to settle down for a bit. My sons especially act like they are Mr. Destructo when they play.  They are also really mean to each other. I don't know how many … [Read more...]

Dancing Groot Clip – Guardians of the Galaxy #guardiansofthegalaxy

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy again on Friday.  Like most Marvel movies, I will probably see it in theaters at least three times. I had a date with my lovely soul twin and we had a blast just like we did the first time we saw it.  Of course, Vin Diesel is amazing as Groot.  I never doubted it though because I remember him in Iron Giant and that movie stole my heart. And then it squeezed it.  Pretty much the same for this movie. So if you haven't seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet then you should probably take a tissue.  Check out this cute video of … [Read more...]

The Dream Killers Freebie Days

DreamkillersFREEBANNER

The Sea of Dreams spat me out with no memories, no idea of who I was or what my purpose might be. When Captain Bo, dream killer extraordinaire, arrived, I took a chance to explore. On the road of discovery, I tripped upon dreamplanes floating dead in a graveyard, scared children attempting to survive their dreams turned nightmare, strange guardians, rogue Dreamlanders, and ships with hearts of silver. I learned more about Dreamland than I ever thought possible. But people are dying. They’re disappearing. Dreamland is twisting, shifting, ripping. I … [Read more...]
