7 Shows You Need to Be Watching on TV This Winter

this season features a great mix of mid-season replacements and returning favorites that will have those DVR gaps filled up in no time! When Mother Nature strikes with another Jonas-level storm, you'll be ready to hibernate with some great binge-worthy lineups! Check out 7 TV shows on my winter watch list!

Winter is one of my favorite times in TV land because they dust off the shows that didn’t quite make it to the fall premiere schedule and give them a chance to show the world what they’re made of. It’s also a time for summer shows to make a part-B comeback, filling in gaps where all our favorites lived on our DVRs. Some of my all-time favorite shows were once mid-season “replacement” shows. Did you know that Buffy the Vampire Slayer started as a mid-season replacement? Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, and Dawson’s Creek were all part of the replacements crew too. […] Read more »

What Can We Learn from Norm of the North? + $100 Fandango Gift Card Giveaway! #BreakTheNorm


This post was sponsored by Lionsgate as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I love when a family film goes beyond simple entertainment to really drive home incredible life lessons, which is why I’m really looking forward to seeing Lionsgate’s latest movie, Norm of the North. At first glance, it looks like a lighthearted movie about a talkative polar bear and his lemming sidekicks taking on the big city. While that’s definitely a big part of the movie, Norm of the North is also filled with valuable lessons for the whole family. Norm of the North: What’s it All […] Read more »

Take a Break from Holiday Madness to Travel Through Time with the Minions!

Minions dvd

The Minions movie is releasing on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD on Tuesday, December 8th, just in time for the holiday season. Jake and I missed out on seeing it in theaters, so we’ve been anxiously awaiting the DVD release. We were super happy when we got the Minions Blu-ray/DVD/DIGITAL HD Combo ahead of time for review! Jake is still bragging about it to his friends.  We’re totally mad for Minions!   Both Jacob and I succumbed to Minion madness long ago, back when the Despicable Me first came out. I still remember the first preview, with the Minions standing there […] Read more »

Indoor Winter Activities to Encourage a Love of Literacy #TruMoo! #TryItHot

TruMoo Indoor Winter Fun Literacy

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of TruMoo Chocolate Milk. All opinions are 100% mine. Winter in the Poconos is typically incredibly cold and harsh. Last year was the coldest on record. We even had a snow storm before Thanksgiving! While this year has been mild so far, I know better than to get too comfortable and think it’s going to stay like this! One year, we had beautiful weather throughout half of December, then a blizzard on Christmas! Before cabin fever even has a chance to start setting in, I try to plan ahead and stock up […] Read more »

Thanksgiving Entertainment: Fun Games to Play While Digesting that Turkey

Thanksgiving Games

As an adult, Thanksgiving has become one of my favorite holidays. It’s relatively low-stress for me. Since I don’t know how to cook well, no one expects me to make anything! I buy the rolls and set the table. Easy job. You know what I really love about Thanksgiving? It’s one of the few times of the year that I have enough people around to play grownup games! Trivial Pursuit isn’t all that fun when you’re playing against yourself, after all. Here are a few of my favorite (or on my wish list) adult group games to play while you’re […] Read more »
