Pee-wee’s Playhouse: The Complete Series Blu-ray Box Set with Clips

PWP_3D Box Art-1

If you grew up in the late 80s, chances are you remember Pee-wee’s Playhouse quite fondly! The zany Paul Reubens played the even zanier character of Pee-wee, first made popular by a series of goofy movies. The show almost instantly became a cult hit. Now, nearly 30 years after it first aired (in 1986) you can bring home the complete digitally-remastered series on Blu-Ray. You can also grab Pee-wee’s Playhouse: Seasons One and Two in a high-definition 4-DVD set. I received that for review and have Jake watching it now!   Pee-wee’s Playhouse: A Show Ahead of Its Time Pee-wee’s […] Read more »

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central for the National Pasta Association. I received pastasamples and a stipend to facilitate the creation of pasta recipes as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Did you know that October is National Pasta Month?

I’m always looking for delicious yet easy ways to incorporate them into recipes. I came across a Chicken and Pasta […] Read more »

Stay Hydrated with the Contigo AUTOSEAL® Cortland Water Bottle + Giveaway #ContigoBestinOne

Contigo 1

I received a complimentary pair of the new AUTOSEAL® Cortland Water Bottle for this review. Like all the Contigo AUTOSEAL® cups I’ve gotten over the years, I absolutely love it. All opinions are my own. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this, but my son is “tongue-tied.” His frenulum (that little ligament thing that is typically at the way back of the underside of your tongue) is attached VERY close to the front. I’m not sure if this is why, but he’s always preferred drinking out of “sippy cups” or through a straw. In fact, I rarely see him just […] Read more »
