What Makes The Divergent Series: Insurgent THE Must-See Date Night Movie? #Insurgent


I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Summit Entertainment. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Are you as incredibly excited about the March 20th premier of The Divergent Series: Insurgent as I am? While I’m kind of sad that I no longer have the stamina or the lifestyle that allows me to buy tickets for the very first midnight showing on opening night, I’m definitely going to see it during opening week! One of the benefits of being a work-at-home-mom and a grown-up fan: I can go in the middle […] Read more »

Trap Team 1

Huge thank you to Activision for making one very special part of this post possible. More on that below. Christmas was almost a disaster. Actually, it kind of was. See, Jacob wanted Skylanders Trap Team Dark Edition more than just about anything. Back in November, I dutifully ordered it before it went out of stock. At least I thought I did. It arrived and I didn’t even look at it. I wrapped it and put it away, so excited that I got him this limited edition game! On Christmas morning, I waited anxiously as he opened it. His eyes lit […] Read more »

Life’s Plot Twists Build Character (inspired by Disney’s Maleficent)


Life never goes according to plan. Ever. Show me one person who says “everything went exactly as I imagined it” and I’ll show you a person who probably led a boring life. Just like on a rollercoaster, it’s the twists and turns that make life so exciting. Take, for example, the life of Maleficent, the ‘villain” in Sleeping Beauty. Up until the recent Disney film starring Angelina Jolie, we never really got to hear her side of the story. Why did she curse Aurora? What was her motivation? Turns out, the curse stemmed from a plot twist in her life: […] Read more »

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 »
