What happens when you throw boiling water into below freezing air? You will have to watch our recent homeschool winter experiment.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! This Thursday will bring even greater joy as Starbucks is offering their holiday drinks buy one get one free. The offer is valid each day between 2 pm and 5 pm from 11/10 – 11/14/16 at participating locations. The free drink will be of equal or lesser value. The offer applies to hot, iced and blended holiday beverages.
Since I am gluten free and dairy free, I tried a gingerbread latte this past Saturday night with almond milk. Friends, it was delicious. I highly recommend it to everyone even if you do not have a dairy intolerance.
After a public outcry, the red cup is officially coming back this year! Here are the available holiday drinks:
Chestnut Praline Latte, Peppermint Mocha and Skinny Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Gingerbread Latte, Eggnog Latte, Teavana Joy Brewed Tea, and Spiced Sweet Cream Nariño 70 Cold Brew.
Did you know that there is a specific gene that leads to gray hair? It’s called the IRF4 gene and scientists are hoping this new study will help in finding ways to delay the graying process. In the meantime, I want to conceal those pesky gray hairs. When I got the email to review the TouchBack Marker, I literally ran into my coworker’s office and jumped up and down with excitement.
Check out my before picture:
You see how the gray hairs peek out around my face? The rest of my hair is fine so I hate dying my hair with chemicals to just cover the grays around my face and my top roots. Let’s give this marker a test!
Let’s face it, there are not many movies that the whole family can sit down and enjoy altogether. The kids either like the animation and the adults love adult movies. That is all changing thanks to Walmart and P&G with their Family Movie Nights.
I was able to what an exclusive pre-screening with my family of the featured movie this week – Truth Be Told.
During the screening, Candace Cameron Bure (yes DJ from Full House) was chatting with us about the movie and giving us a behind the scenes tour so to speak. The movie was so well done and one that the family actually watched the movie all the way through without moving just because it was that good. M and L who are 8, 6 were glued to the TV. I think the horses are what won L’s heart over.
Truth Be Told is centered around a lie.
From the site:
“When leading marriage counselor Annie Morgan (Candace Cameron Bure) is offered an opportunity to host a relationship talk show, she jumps at the chance. But fearful that being single might ruin her big break, she conspires with an old college friend and recent widower, Mark Crane (David James Elliott), to pose as a married couple with kids. Their story starts to unravel when Annie and Mark join her eccentric soon-to-be boss (Ronny Cox) for a weekend at his ranch in New Mexico. Comical misunderstandings mark the event as Annie struggles to keep up the ruse, finding herself emotionally invested and conflicted by her own conscience. Will she confess the truth about her marital status and her feelings for Mark… and will the truth set them free?”
Of course, I have a teaser too:
As a family, the movie teaches us all what a little white lie can do. It teaches morals the good ole fashioned way instead of using sex, violence, or bad language. I even told Cameron in chat that it was so nice to sit and watch the movie the entire time without having to worry if a part would come up on the screen that I do not recommend for my girls. The best part too, was the acting in the movie was not cheesy at all. It was really well done, scripted and produced.
I have said enough, now it is time for you to tune in Saturday Night to watch the movie with your family. Tune into Fox April 16 at 8/7c. Pop some popcorn and gather around the screen to have a great family movie night.
P.S. I was not compensated for this review at all. I just love to share good family fun with my readers and this is a movie that I highly recommend!

Pillow Pets are all the rave here in this household. Since, we take multiple road trips through out the year, the pillow pets have been our lifesaver. I am beginning to believe they love road trips just as much as we do. My girls will not sleep without their pillow pets and once they wake in the mornings, their pillow pets always come with them into the living room.
The flexibility is just what the doctor ordered for parents. Pillow pets give comfort to the kids and also serve as a playmate. I could talk about pillow pets all day and I do a lot of recommends to other people, but I thought it would be great to hear from the true owners yourself. Listen in as our very own kid reporters give you the real review of the pillow pets. Then, I will tell you how you can save 40% off of pillow pets.
Now, you cannot ask for a more real review than going to the source itself right? Pillow Pets come in so many different animals but specifically these 8 animals, you are able to save 40% right now until April 10, 2011.
