In addition to the Gumby Movie and Floogals DVDs that we received from NCircle Entertainment this month, we also received Little Wolf's Book of Badness. This DVD is based on a series of Little Wolf story books. Even though we weren't familiar at all with the books, I still thought the DVD was something my kids would enjoy watching.


All Little Wolf wants to do is stay at home with Mum, Dad and his brother, Smellybreff. However, Mum and Dad are worried that their precious son, Little Wolf, is not as bad as a small wolf should be. So they decide to send him off to Cunning College in Frettnin Forest to learn the Nine Rules of Badness from his Uncle Bigbad. Uncle Bigbad is a hopeless teacher, but armed with determination and native wit, Little Wolf thinks things out for himself. Sent out by his Uncle to round up a troop of boy scouts to eat for supper, Little Wolf discovers that the scouts have many useful skills that Little Wolf can learn from them. In the end, Little Wolf decides not to follow outdated rules of proper wolf behavior but to be true to himself. As a result, he inherits his Uncle's fortune and becomes master of Cunning College. Based on a world famous series of best-selling Little Wolf story books, this one-off is a treat for the whole family!

My seven-year-old loves the Floogals! He watches it sometimes on Sprout and so, he was super excited to see that we were getting a DVD of Floogals shows. As soon as it came in the mail, he wanted to watch it.

I had seen a couple shows with him and thought it was pretty interesting. I liked the theme song. It gets stuck in your head.

I'm A Chick-Fil-A Mom! #ChickFilAMoms

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

I'm happy to announce that I have been selected to be a member of the Chick-Fil-A Mom Panel for 2017-2018. This will be my fourth year on the panel.

My entire family loves Chick-Fil-A! We probably eat Chick-Fil-A at least once a week. It's a great option when we don't have the time to cook or when we're traveling. There's something there for each of us to eat.

I celebrated my being selected for the panel by having breakfast at Chick-Fil-A last week.

As a member of the Chick-Fil-A Mom Panel, I'll post news about new menu items, services, and other fun things from Chick-Fil-A!

Perfect Bar - REVIEW

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

DISCLOSURE: I received this product for free from Moms Meet ( to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

My kids usually pack a lunch for school. One thing I struggle with is making sure I pack foods that my kids will like and eat, while also making sure that the food is healthy and nutritious. I want to make sure they eat the food I pack them and not let it go to waste, but I also don't want to pack a lot of junk food, either.

Thanks to Moms Meet, we had the chance to try Perfect Bars. They're unlike any other nutrition bar we've tried. For one thing, they're sold in the refrigerated section of the store.  They contain no chemical preservatives, overly-processed ingredients or emulsifiers. To maintain the optimal texture and flavor, they require refrigeration. Though, they can stay fresh out of the fridge up to one week.

I remember watching Gumby when I was growing up. I don't remember too much about the show, but I do remember some of the characters. I remember Gumby and Pokey. And I remember The Blockheads were the bad guys.

Recently, my six--year-old had showed some interest in Gumby. He had watched a few episodes of the show on Amazon Prime and so, he was pretty excited when we got the movie in the mail to review.


Take a magical romp with the world's most popular clay boy in The Gumby Movie. For the first time, you'll enjoy this heartwarming adventure, fully re-mastered from its original film rolls. This is the complete movie, with all its scenes intact. This clay-animated masterpiece was written and directed by Gumby Creator Art Clokey, and showcases Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, Goo, the Blockheads, Professor Kapp, and introduces the Clayboys and singing sensation Tara. Gumby rocks out with the Clayboys for a concert benefiting local farmers. But things go awry when Gumby's arch enemies, the Blockheads, dognap his pet pooch, Lowbelly! Bad turns to worse when the Blockheads also kidnap the band...and replace them with clones! The battle between Clayboys and clones is filled with trains and planes, knights and fights, thrills and spills! True to classic Gumby adventures, The Gumby Movie takes viewers in and out of books, to Toyland, Camelot, outer space and beyond! The Gumby Movie Bonus Features include: Photo Gallery and Behind the Scenes.

School has been in session for more than a week now. We had a later start this year than most other families that I know of. This year, school started the day after Labor Day, when usually it starts sometime in mid to late August.

I have an 8th grader, 5th grader, 1st grader and a child in Pre-K this year. They're all super excited about the new school year and so far, things have been going pretty well.

While we were vacationing in the Outer Banks last month, we received our September Book Buddies Box from Parragon Books. Each month, they send us a selection of books that go along with that month's theme. This month, the theme is, appropriately enough, the Back To School season. The box featured Parragon's new Learnalots series of books. The series is designed to be a fun and interactive way for kids to build upon their reading and math skills and are made so kids and parents can play and learn together.

A Look At The New Refurbished Rooms At Disney's Pop Century Resort at Disney World

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

We just returned from a week-long trip to Walt Disney World. Since we're a family of six, we usually book two rooms at a value resort. We normally spend the majority of the day at the parks and so staying at a value resort gives us the convenience of staying on property, without spending too much money.

This trip, we stayed at Disney's Pop Century Resort, which is currently undergoing renovations. We had the opportunity to stay at one of the new refurbished rooms. Right now, Building 8 in the 90's section and Building 9 in the 80's section are finished being renovated. We stayed in the 90's section.
