Shaun the sheep: Farmer's Llamas

Kids thoughts on Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas: When the llamas first got there they saw the soccer ball and wanted to play.  They were passing it to each other and then got the sheep to join them in a game of soccer. One Sheep had to play on the llamas team. The smart llama was spinning the ball on his foot. Everything was going great but soon things would change when peer pressure gets to the group and the sheep soon get some party supplies (soda, chips, etc) from the farmer’s house. But when you mix those with some fun-going llamas trouble always happens. These guys get in a ton of trouble making a mess of their temporary home.  It was a funny movie, I liked it.

The Choice on Blu-ray & DVD Now

May 4, 2016 By · No Comments
I have loved every Nicholas Sparks movie so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I couldn’t wait to see this one. Now sure I wanted to see it in theaters but didn’t get a chance. I counted down the days to catch it on Redbox but thankfully I was sent one for review. The movie is great, make sure to have a thing of tissues nearby though because you’ll need them.  Perfect movie for a date night or even to give to your mom for the holiday. Basically what happens when a medical student moves in next door to the bachelor neighbor, Travis, who just seems to be obnoxious and causing her issues. When Gabby’s current boyfriend, Ryan, goes out of town on business she will continue running into Travis and fall quickly in love. Their back and forth banter will have you giggling.  They must go through a ton of “Choices” and figure out if their love is meant to me, later Travis will have to make a decision that will change their lives forever. Great movie!

From novelist Nicholas Sparks, the author of classic love stories The Notebook and Dear John, the year’s most moving romance, The Choice, will be available on Digital HD April 19 and on Blu-ray™ (plusDigital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) on May 3 from Lionsgate. Based on Sparks’ best-selling novel, written for the screen by Bryan Sipe (Demolition), and directed by RossKatz (Adult Beginners), The Choice stars Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Maggie Grace (Taken series), Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas), Tom Welling (TV’s “Smallville”) and Academy Award® nominee Tom Wilkinson (Best Actor, In the Bedroom, 2001), in a touching love story that will make viewers laugh, cry, and wonder how far they would go to keep the hope of love alive.

It’s a PEEPS® Easter!

March 19, 2016 By · 69 Comments

I don’t know about you but I can’t remember a single Easter that wee didn’t have PEEPS® in a basket, even thinking back to my childhood we had them. As a parent I have always made sure each child got a batch of Easter PEEPS® in their basket. I mean it just wouldn’t be the same right? The best part is none of them ever eat all of them so we get to use them in desserts and hot chocolate. Course as I’ve stated in many PEEPS® posts I simply LOVE to leave some air to the bunnies and let them get stale a bit before I eat them. How do you like your PEEPS®?

Before I go any further I wanted to share that PEEPS® has given me a code for ya’ll to get a 20% your purchase, no minimum required, from February 15 through April 15, 2016. Discount code: EASTERTREATS

Eddie the Eagle Movie Trailer

February 15, 2016 By · 6 Comments


I love watching the winter sports so I was excited to hear about this movie coming out. Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael “Eddie” Edwards, an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself and was loveable underdog with a never say die attitude.

DF-02587 - Bronson (Hugh Jackman) puts things in perspective for aspiring ski jumper Eddie (Taron Egerton).
