My family loves My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is one of the shows that we enjoy watching all together – yes, even my husband. So naturally we were excited when the latest DVD was sent to us by Shout Factory Kids! The episodes on Spring Into Friendship are some of our favorites – so we were thrilled! My personal favorite of season 7 was Just for Sidekicks, so I was super excited to see that one on there. That being said, all of the episodes included are pretty amazing and loved by my whole family. Adding this My Little Pony DVD to our collection was a must.
About five years ago we moved from Florida to New York for my husband’s job. I grew up in Massachusetts and one thing that I knew I was not looking forward to was the snow. What I underestimated was just how much more snow there is in upstate New York than I was used to. I learned to drive in the snow, so you would think I wouldn’t mind it. But I hate it. Well, let me correct myself. I hated driving in the snow. Especially after having kids. I would be a huge ball of nerves worried that I would slide wrong and get in an accident with them in the car. Well, thanks to the 2018 Kia Sorento, I have learned to enjoy driving in the snow.
One of my favorite movies is Bad Moms. I went to see it in theaters with a group of girlfriends and have seen it several times since. I own it on blu-ray and put it on every few months. It makes me laugh so hard, even after having seen it multiple times. The movie totally captures the truth about moms – and that is why I am really excited about the sequel, A Bad Moms Christmas. There was a lot going on at the time it was in theaters, so I didn’t get to go see it. Universal Studios sent me an advance copy of it on blu-ray and I could not wait to check it out.
You might know that my husband and I are huge Star Wars fans. I think I have said this before but we actually walked out at our wedding reception to the Imperial Death March. We have both been eagerly awaiting Solo: A Star Wars Story, and the trailer was FINALLY released this morning! To say it was amazing is an understatement. All of the actors look fantastic (I mean Donald Glover as Lando! MIND BLOWN!).
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and so it is time to start brain storming about gifts. Candy and flowers seem to be the go-to for just about anyone, but does everyone really like that? For me personally, I am on a diet so candy is a no go, and flowers die too quickly in my mind. I put together some items that would make great gifts for the whole family.
The next game in my must have video games series is Call of Duty: World War II. This game is the latest game in a long franchise of Call of Duty games. If you haven’t picked it up yet, here is why you should!
I started the Keto way of eating a month ago now. As you might know already, my last update was at the two week mark. I had lost 10 pounds, going from 174 to 164. With most diets, it gets harder to lose as time goes on. Which makes sense since you start to have less to lose. Well, after one full month of Keto eating (January 1st to February 1st), I now weigh in at 159. That is 5 pounds in 2 weeks, and 15 pounds in one month – which is pretty good. I stuck to Keto eating and working out almost daily. However, in the interest of honesty, I did “cheat” a little bit (I had a vodka, water, and MIO drink a couple of times – which is Keto approved and didn’t kick me out of Ketosis).
If you haven’t figured out that I am a giant (pun intended) Marvel fan. Ant-Man is one of my favorite comic book characters, especially the Scott Lang version. I think that Paul Rudd plays him perfectly, so I have been really excited to see what Ant-Man and The Wasp has in store for us! It feels like forever that we have known about this film, but we haven’t seen much of anything – UNTIL THIS MORNING. The Ant-Man and The Wasp trailer finally dropped, and it was well worth the wait!
As you might already know, I have two dogs. They are small breed dogs – a puggle and a pug. True to my geek nature, they are named after Game of Thrones characters (Sansa & Khaleesi). They are truly a part of our family. They sleep in bed with my husband and myself during the week – and often sleep in bed with my daughters on the weekends. we want them to live as long as possible, so we have started doing some things at home to keep them healthy. We can only hope that these prolong their lives, even for just a short while.
Cartoon Network is one of my family’s favorite channels. There are several shows that we can watch all together and Steven Universe is one of them. In fact, we have been toying with the idea of dressing up as Steven, Pearl, Amethyst, and Garnet for Halloween sometime. It works out perfectly since we are a family with three girls and one boy. When we found out that the entire first season of Steven Universe was going to be available on DVD, we were thrilled. Now, we have watched it all, but this way my daughters can watch it in the car on long trips, or in their rooms.
