A Dog’s Purpose BLU-RAY Release Giveaway

A Dog's purpose

I’m a sucker for a good family film, and throw a cute dog into it, and I’m totally sold. We missed A Dog’s Purpose when it was in theaters, but I’m excited to check it out with the family now that it’s launching on BLU-RAY May 2nd.
A Dog's purpose

The gist of the movie is this. A devoted dog (voiced by Josh Gad) finds the meaning of his own existence through the lives of the humans he teaches to laugh and love. The family film told from the dog’s perspective also stars Britt Robertson, KJ Apa, John Ortiz, Juliet Rylance, Luke Kirby, Peggy Lipton, Pooch Hall and Dennis Quaid.

After reading a few reviews, I’m not 100% sure I’ll let my six year old watch it. She’s my sensitive soul so I’m thinking we’ll hold off a bit. Wondering if it’s good for your kids? Here are a few reviews worth reading:

Now that the kids are getting older, I’ve been wanting to take more day trips and do more around our awesome state. There is so much to do and see in North Carolina and even though I’ve lived here since 1989, there’s so much I haven’t seen. This past weekend, we had the chance to… [Read More]

My kids gave me a reminder today

all about perspective and looking up

I’m driving a Toyota Sienna this week and the kids are in awe of the double sunroofs. We had them in our old Acura but not in our current Nissan. Apparently, they miss it. Who knew? I’ve been sort of cranky these past few days. I’m not sure if it’s the let down after all… [Read More]

My thoughts on the movie, GIFTED

gifted movie

When I first saw the preview for GIFTED, I was filled with anticipation. First of all, Chris Evans…hello!  And second, Octavia Spencer…she’s my absolute favorite. The trailer had me stoked for a good story and hopefully a great movie. I went in with high hopes. So what’s the premise? Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a… [Read More]

Y’all, it’s happening. I’m turning into one of those crazy work-out people. I’ve never been a huge exercise person. Yes, I do it because I want to stay healthy, but I’ve never been super regimented about it. I worked out in college…sometimes. I used to walk a lot at night. After kids, I joined the… [Read More]

5 reasons I’ll never give up coffee

Cup of coffee

I started drinking coffee in high school. There was a Caribou Coffee that was the perfect hangout for me and my girlfriends. We’d get a frozen coffee or a fancy latte and relished in our newfound independence. When I started working full-time, my love of coffee was truly solidified. My day didn’t truly start until… [Read More]

I promise, I’m really not the lamest mom ever. But I do have a sort of personal vendetta against sugar. To give you a little background, some bizarre autoimmune conditions run in my family, so when my body completely freaked out after my second child, I started seeing a naturopath who helped me quickly see how… [Read More]
