October 6, 2015 By · No Comments

How many of you have ever had a picky eater? I’ve had quite a few in fact I’ve never forgotten how one of my little 3 year olds hated meat so much she chucked chicken nuggets out the car window in her attempt at saving the tiny birds. Only if she knew. As a parent it becomes frustrating to make sure your picky child eats the right amount of vitamins and minerals needed. I thought ya’ll would be interested in the giveaway below so I teamed up with Stephanie of Making of a Mom. The prizes are not through me but I wanted you to have a chance to win too. 
If you are the parent of a picky eater or just concerned that your children aren’t getting all the vitamins and minerals their bodies need to be healthy, then I welcome you to learn about alternaVites.

Jurassic World arrives on HD Oct 1 & Giveaway

October 1, 2015 By · 21 Comments

Disclosure:  I will be receiving a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own. Samples/prizes courtesy of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and Hasbro.


How many of you remember Jurassic Park? Did any of you see Jurassic World when it came out in theaters earlier this year? Ya’ll already know that I could not wait for this movie to come out. I ended up taking my kids the same way I saw the very first.  Shattering records globally, Jurassic World crushed the opening-weekend box-office, scoring the highest domestic, international and worldwide openings of all time.  The film has taken in more than $1.6 billion globally to become the third-highest grossing film in history.  Now fans can experience the thrill and awe when Jurassic World arrives on Digital HD on October 1, 2015 and on 3-D Blu-ray™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on October 20, 2015. Available on Digital HD today. 

The Jurassic World theme park lets guests experience the thrill of witnessing actual dinosaurs, but something ferocious lurks behind the park’s attractions – a genetically modified dinosaur with savage capabilities.  When the massive creature escapes, chaos erupts across the island.  Now it’s up to Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) to save the park’s tourists from an all-out prehistoric assault. Will they be able to protect everyone? Who will die? Who will live?
