Enjoy A Halloween Monster Movie Night! #HotelT3 #Ad

    Can you guys believe that Halloween is right around the corner? My family and I are so excited with all the costume and candy preparations that this fun holiday has really crept up on us. One of our favorite Halloween traditions is also watching spooky movies together and making the night a fun monster movie night. That is why we have added Hotel Transylvania 3 to our scary movie collection!     Available now on Digital HD and on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD, Mavis surprises Dracula with a family voyage on a luxury, haunted monster cruise ship. Of course, the rest of the Drac Pack has to tag along, and that’s when things get a little…batty. The monsters are having a great time, indulging in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to colossus-sized buffets and exotic excursions, but then the unexpected happens when Drac falls for the ship’s mysterious, and dangerous, human captain Ericka.

Your Middle Schooler Will Love The Storm Runner! #TheStormRunner @ReadRiordan #Ad

*Disney Book Group is partnering with me for a giveaway!     As a Literacy Specialist who teaches adolescents, I am always on the lookout for new books that my students will love. Since I now have a son in high school and one in middle school, I also recommend these same books to my own boys. Recently, I introduced the book The Storm Runner to my classroom library and my 12 year-old has also gotten his hands on a copy and he can't seem to put it down!     I asked him what he loved so much about The Storm Runner and he shared with me that the book is full of adventure. He said that, as he was reading it, he was able to visualize exactly what was going on in the story and he felt like he was right there as the action was taking place. As an educator I know that books that inspire this type of love of reading are the ones that kids and teens really love. About the Book How can one boy with a limp stop the Maya god of death, disaster, and darkness from destroying the world? Zane … [Read more...]

Celebrate Life’s Special Precious Moments #PreciousMoments @PreciousMoment #Ad

    Growing up in a Hispanic household, I vividly recall seeing the curio cabinets that were prominently displayed in the homes of my grandmother and godmother. They were full of sentimental items that us kids were not allowed to touch as we were too clumsy and might drop one of them. The only time I can recall seeing these items up close was when the cabinets would be opened for dusting and, even then, we were not allowed to touch anything unsupervised.     My godmother, Millie, had an extensive Precious Moments figurine collection which she prized and loved receiving new additions as gifts during special occasions from my godfather. I remember thinking how much I would love to have my own Precious Moments collection one day when I was a young girl. This year, Precious Moments, one of the world’s most recognized and inspirational brands known for their adorable figurines, is celebrating its big 40th Anniversary. I couldn't think of a better time to start my own collection in order to … [Read more...]

In my case, it is something that began after having children and can be an inconvenience sometimes.     The good news is, you are not alone. The reality is that 1 in 3 women experience light bladder leakage, or LBL, and Poise® gives you one less thing to worry about any time of day or night.

The Queen Rules At Medieval Times! #LongMaySheReign @MedievalTimesNJ #Ad

    After years and years of casting the king as the lead at Medieval Times, there is now a queen leading the entire kingdom. She inherited the throne after her father passed away and prides herself for being a firm and kind ruler who elicits the respect and admiration of all her loyal subjects. Since we have been huge fans of Medieval Times for years, we were beyond thrilled to go meet the queen last week. If you have never been to Medieval times, you have no idea what you are missing. Families enjoy dinner and a show as they are catapulted to medieval Spain within the stone walls of their 11th century-style castle. You are welcome to dine with Queen Maria Isabella and her royal court. As her noble guests, everyone feasts on garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes, the pastry of the castle, coffee and two rounds of select beverages.     We loved watching the battles between the knights right in front of us as they … [Read more...]
