UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — The most adorable rabble-rousers in film history return in The Little Rascals Save the Day, a fun-filled, all-new adventure featuring Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Darla, Petey the Dog and all their friends. Directed by Alex Zamm (Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2), The Little Rascals Save the Day arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack including Blu-ray, DVD, & DIGITAL HD with UltraViolet on April 1, 2014, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The film will also be available on DIGITAL HD two weeks early on March 18, 2014.
In the spirit of the treasured Our Gang comedies, The Little Rascals Save the Day finds the most entertaining bunch of third graders in town hatching a series of madcap schemes to earn enough money to keep Grandma’s (Doris Roberts of “Everybody Loves Raymond”) bakery out of the clutches of conniving businessman Big Ray (Greg Germann of Here Comes the Boom). From caddying to pet care to taxi service, each of their plans goes hilariously awry until they are left with just two options: find a way to win the local talent show or wave goodbye to the best cupcakes a kid ever tasted!
Eden Wood of the hit reality series “Toddlers and Tiaras” makes her feature film debut as pint-sized coquette, Darla, along with the fresh young faces of Camden Gray, Chase Vacnin, Connor Berry, Drew Justice, Grant Palmer II, YouTube sensation Isaiah “Zay-Zay” Fredericks, Jet Jurgensmeyer, Jenna Ortega and Rio Mangini in the iconic Rascals family-friendly original comedy.  Adult actors Valerie Azlynn (“Sullivan and Son”) and Lex Medlin (“Drop Dead Diva”) complete the cast.
The Blu-ray Combo Pack includes a Blu-ray, DVD and DIGITAL HD with Ultraviolet.
  • Blu-ray unleashes the power of your HDTV and is the best way to watch movies at home, featuring 6X the picture resolution of DVD, exclusive extras and theater-quality surround sound.
  • DVD offers the flexibility and convenience of playing movies in more places, both at home and away.
  • DIGITAL HD with Ultraviolet lets fans watch movies anywhere on their favorite devices. Users can instantly stream or download movies to watch on iPad®, iPhone®, Android™, smart TVs, connected Blu-ray players, game consoles, and more.

We watched this movie last night, it is so cute, funny and just plain fun to watch the kids. Spanky comes up with idea after idea that set them back from the mission at hand but in the end the good kids always wins! We will be watching this one again, and again.

An General Update

It has been a long time since I have written! We have been very, very busy, but life has just slowed down, not on accident but on purpose! We sat down last night and decided that we just need a break from everything, so for the next couple of weeks we are going to stay home and enjoy our blessings.

We have decided to embrace a 31 day no spending on anything that is not essential. It is going to be hard for us because we do have a few things that are coming up that we could use as excuses to celebrate, but we are going to do it in a more humble way. Joel gets confirmed this next weekend, which means his first communion and the end to his Sunday school studies. Then there is Easter coming up, I do have a few things put away for the boys baskets but not much so I will have to get creative. I do have $61 in my paypal account from a small job I did on elance and $35 gc in my amazon account that I have available for Easter baskets. I also have to send a Granny box just before Easter also.

Tonight I am making meatloaf for dinner and while the oven is on, I will bake a loaf of bread and a batch of peanut butter cookies. I am gong to try really hard not to waste anything in the next 31 days including watching every utilities. I will be continuing to hang laundry inside, in the living room which is NOT pretty but I still have huge snow banks under my outside lines.

I have been getting a few interesting questions via email from my readers, thank you for your continued support btw! Now I have a question for you! I have 14 boxes of rice crispy type of cereal, a case or 12 jars of peanut butter, and a case of shelf stable milk, tell me what to do with them besides sandwiches, and bowls of cereal.

thank you!

Every Woman Needs a New Pair of Shoes!

Every woman needs a new pair of shoes and there is a new shoe shoe in town. You know what that means right, a trip to the city to check out the new shoe store.

image003 Famous Footwear opened in Marquette Wednesday, March 19. The opening marks the first location in Marquette. Famous Footwear is known for having in-season, brand-name shoes for the whole family that are famously affordable.

phone 081

To celebrate the opening, they hosted a grand opening event on March 29 which will included a live DJ, drawings for shoppers to win complimentary pairs of shoes, one-day special promotions and a local shoe artist who did customizing shoes for customers.

The celebration was so much fun, I love to sign up to win things and free shoes yay! The store was packed, the DJ did a great job playing exciting up beat music. While I did not win free shoes, I still had a great time. I did pick out a cute pair of sandals that I will show you after I give myself a pedicure real soon.

phone 082This is a photo of the cutest shoe shopper in the entire store. He is a trooper, he did not belly ache one time while shoe shopping with his mother for sandals.

I was pleasantly surprised that Famous Footwear had a great selection of shoes for the entire family at budget friendly prices.

CLEVERFIT – Product Review

CLEVERFIT-The-Adjustable-Collar-StayWhat is it? CLEVERFIT is the world’s first precision fit adjustable collar stay. Its unique patent pending design provides an innovative solution to end decades of frustration. CLEVERFIT’s quick-sizing capability eliminates the need for keeping up with multiple sets of fixed length stays. Engineered and crafted in stainless steel, the CLEVERFIT collar stay provides a superior alternative to plastic collar stays, which can deform, warp and even break with use.

How does it work? CLEVERFIT puts the power of adjustability at the user’s fingertips. Simply hold in one hand, apply light directional pressure between the thumb and forefingers to extend or retract CLEVERFIT to the optimum length for the selected shirt collar. CLEVERFIT’s universal sizing features offer two modes of use to insure the proper fit for everyday wear as well as an extra firming capability for more demanding occasions.

My Hubby has just started wearing a dress shirt and tie again. At first we were not sure these tiny little things would do as they promised. But let me tell you, they made all of the difference! And let me tell you I love a sharp dressed man, my own sharp dressed man!

February is the Month of Love


41KTq5Px40L._SX258_PJlook-inside-v2,TopRight,1,0_SH20_BO1,204,203,200_Words of Love is a compilation of the best things ever said on the subject of love. A book of over 500 bon mots, including the brilliance of everyone from Oprah and Ovid to Aristotle and Dear Abby, this volume of touching quotes and upbeat witticisms is guaranteed to make readers feel good. These are quotes to cuddle up to – they will touch the heart, bring a smile to the face, and make readers want to share the love!

I like to read, and to write love letters to my three men, but some times, I get writer’s block. I like to stick Little notes in jean pockets, and lunch boxes for my family to find through out the day. I like to know that they know I am thinking of them even though we are not together right at that moment. I have found this great little book to help me, if I am stuck on what to say in a note, I just jot down the saying, and who wrote it. Because it is the thought that counts, I do not have to be original every day.

This book would make a great gift, not only a birthday gift, but a wedding or graduation gift.
