We celebrated 9 years of blogging in August! It feels like it has flown on by! I appreciate all of you for sticking with me through the years!
I had an aunt pass away from complications with her diabetes. She was an aunt through marriage, but it still hurts all the same. Also makes me think about my own diabetes, and that I need to keep taking care of myself.
Enough sad stuff. Summer is almost over, oh wait, that's more sad stuff! I realized I did nothing noteworthy this summer. Did any of you have anything exciting to talk about? Fill me in! Let me live vicariously through you! 😁

  1. I'm sorry to hear about your aunt. I hope you've been enjoying HP as much as I've been enjoying seeing you share excerpts of the books every Friday. Hope you have a good September.

  3. My condolences on the loss of your aunt. I know with me, I put more care and attention into the health of my pets and kids than myself! We definitely need to be better about taking care of ourselves to stay healthy.

    I still need to finish Harry Potter series. I was reading the series aloud to my kids, and Goblet of Fire was taking forever to get through and we stopped in the middle of it. Maybe now that they are older it will be better!

RATED PG
86 minutes

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

And Snowball (Kevin Hart) gets delusions of grandeur that he’s a superhero after his owner starts dressing him in superhero pajamas. But when Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball’s help on a dangerous mission, he’ll have to summon the courage to become the hero he’s been pretending to be.Can Max, Snowball, Gidget and the rest of the gang find the inner courage to face their biggest fears?

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
