ODD Squad: The Movie Debutes on DVD 1/24 | #OddSquad #PBSKids

Things are about to get very odd…! PBS Distribution announced recently that they will release “ODD SQUAD: THE MOVIE” on DVD. This is the first-ever movie from the multiple Emmy-winning live-action PBS KIDS series from The Fred Rogers Company. My 5 year old is a huge fan of this show – and my husband and I are too. She has learned so much from it. It is a show that we really enjoy watching all together as a family. Even our 4 year old likes it. This movie has made a great addition to our DVD collection, and I highly recommend it for anyone with younger kids.

When I found out about TeeBlox, I was thrilled! I love letting my Geek flag fly by wearing shirts related to my favorite video games, movies, comic books, and more. TeeBlox is a monthly subscription box that will send you an officially licensed T-Shirt in the theme of your choice. They have eight equally amazing themes to choose from (trust me, I have been trying them all!) that are geared towards geeks and gamers. I always get compliments when I wear them out.

Keeping Your Home Protected With #Zmodo Torch Pro Even While You Are Away | #Giveaway

Having kids has really changed me. As most of you know, I have two young daughters, and because of this, I want to keep my home as safe as possible. We live in a city, a small city, but it is still a city. We also live near a college. The college kids don’t seem to come down our street too often, but they have done damage to homes in my area before. I love the idea of being able to see who comes to my door, or even who might be lingering outside and in the yard. Thanks to the Zmodo Torch I can, simply by changing my light bulb.

Kicking Off 2017 By Improving My Mind, Body, & Spirit + How You Can Too! | #TGGNewYou #ShopShare

I decided to take control of my life again this year. Being a mom of two little ones, a wife, a housekeeper, and still running this site has taken a lot out of me the last few years. I am not saying that I am not happy – because I am – but I gained weight, have been having too much wine (no such thing though, right?), have stopped working out, and have slipped back in to very poor eating habits. For my New Year’s Resolution, I promised myself that this was all going to change. I have started Nutrisystem, set a great workout routine again, picked up some new books for some me time, and best of all – my husband is doing it all right along side me. Having his support is going to make a huge difference -and already has. In just one week I feel more relaxed, have lost 8 lbs and 1.5 inches off my waist, and feel a stronger bond with my kids and my husband. Below are some other things that I plan to utilize in 2017, and I hope you do too!

Important Things to Know About Diabetes

There are more illnesses than ever threatening the wellbeing of our children – and ourselves – these days. Cases of children getting diagnosed with diabetes are being found across the country. Worryingly, the number of diabetic children is on the rise. The combination of a bad diet, too much sugar intake and lack of exercise are pinpointed as the main causes of this rise. Children’s love for sugary food and video games may be at fault.
