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.

It is time to eat.  As a mom, I want to have something that … [Read more...]

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...]
