The Star is a new film produced by Sony Pictures will be released in theaters November 17th! So excited for this adorable new Christmas film! Be sure and check them out! What a great movie to get the holiday season started!
In Sony Pictures Animation’s The Star, a small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a loveable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become unlikely heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.
The movie itself is a ton of fun but they couldn’t stop there! On the website, they have an interactive coloring book and it’s not only adorable, but also such a fun and relaxing activity! There are also free printable Dioromas to add to your holiday fun! I love love love these adorable little cutouts! What great fun to have with the children before Christmas! Being a sucker for craft

I don’t know about you, but waiting for my phone to charge when I want to do something is the absolute worst for me! I have very little patience, and while I recognize fully that patience is a very good trait I don’t seem to have gotten it down yet. I’m a work in progress, my patience has improved but is not yet perfected. That being said, any product that lessens my need for patience is a friend to me. Speed chargers are the bomb, I love them. I love that in half (or sometimes less) of the time I can have my phone or device back up and running. Doesn’t matter if I don’t need it, it matters if I can’t have it. LOL. I know, another problem I have is being a spoiled brat. Keep your judgements to yourself please. haha.
I recently got to try out the Custom USB Depot Turbo Charger. It has a switch on the side so that it will work with either Android or Apple devices so that is fabulous. At the Zoo, we prefer multi-tasking tools! I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and due probably to both the age and the amount of things I had downloaded, it goes dead a lot and takes what I feel like is an eternity to charge. The Turbo Charger plugs into my existing wall charger as a USB portal and sped up the charging process by about half the time. This is awesome! Since I’ve had the charger, I gave in and updated my phone. I purchased a Samsung Note 5 which comes with a turbo charger. However, I use my USB Depot Turbo Charger with an old USB cable on my computer so I have been using the Turbo Charger on it and it works great here too!
The charger comes in a silicone case that you can attach to your key chain. Now let’s all take a moment an acknowledge my awesome keychains, I just got the stone sea turtle and I am always a supporter of speaking out against domestic violence. I also have a charm keeper on it, but I couldn’t figure out how to get that in there too. LOL. I’m a little in love with my keychains. Anyway, having the USB Turbo Charger on my keychain is awesome for many reasons, but my favorite is that it makes it easy to keep up with. No matter where I go, I have it and since it is super light it doesn’t make much difference in weight on my key chain. Even if I don’t have the USB device in the case, it’s not a pain to have on my key chain. Overall, I really enjoy the speed and convenience that the Custom USB Charger has brought. Easy, lightweight, convenient. All a busy woman’s friend!
Some important details:
3-5 year warranty
Rush shipping available on most items
Price Beat Guarantee
The awesome folks over at Custom USB Depot is gonna gave one lucky reader a Lightning fast 32 G USB Drive!

Before reading the PR statements (listed below) I listened to the CD they put together. To be honest, I thought ‘Pizza Ranch’ was some sort of silly band name, but it didn’t matter to me. What mattered was how good the CD was, because that’s why I’m reviewing it, right? Initially, my post was going to start with telling you this compilation of music totally inspires a sense of hope. Until I read it’s purpose, now it’s got to start differently. Only, I don’t know what to tell you.
Guess I’ll just go…. On the three hour trip back to seeing our little blessing I began to listen to the CD Pizza Ranch has put out to inspire Hope, not knowing it’s purpose. Let me tell you, after almost 7 months of our little one being in the hospital, imagining going home (that hope that things may get on to the ‘new normal’ soon) becomes harder and harder. As a parent, I keep praying and waiting (and I know it will happen) but some days are hard, others harder and that trip back and forth to the hospital, living there and only visiting your home and pets, is taxing. Frankly, I think I should be paid in advance, at least 20 years worth. Regardless, by the third or fourth song in, I was feeling hopeful about life in general, about everything. The rest of the music brought the same good feelings of hope.
Although those at Pizza Ranch who took on this project and put it together may never know the effects of their project on everyone, but hopefully they read this and know that they did make a difference. More importantly, I hope that you’ll buy the CD and it will bring you some hope and happiness as well.
Adrie Groeneweg had a dream that started in Hull, IA, in 1981, when he was just 19 years old. It was simple. Why does everyone have to drive out of town to get a pizza? With just six specialty and single topping pizza recipes developed by Adrie’s mother, Lorraine, Pizza Ranch was born. Pizza Ranch’s vision and mission is to glorify God by positively impacting the world and to give every guest a legendary experience. They have 190+ locations across 13 states including Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado.

When my husband saw the Monster cereals sitting on the counter, he was really excited. He grabbed the boxes and started reading them saying they were the same as when he was growing up. It was cute seeing him turn into a kid again for a minute, he is usually so serious! To his great disappointment he had to wait before he could try them, as I hadn’t taken pics yet! LOL.
Daily he came home and said “did you take your pics yet?” After I finally got them done, he skipped dinner and had cereal instead. I saw him take the first bite, closing his eyes and reliving some good memory. He said it tasted like being a kid again! Judging by the look on his face, that’s a good thing. I know when we run out he is going to send me on a hunt to find more. The retro Monster cereals are available exclusively at Target and up until October 31st if you buy three boxes you can get a Monster Bash magazine (which includes Recipes, Tips and Tricks for planning the creepiest, scariest, spookiest, most fun Halloween ever!). You can find more info for them here also.
He has a lactose allergy so he doesn’t get to eat dairy products anymore. After reading the ingredients, we were very happy that there wasn’t any lactose inside! Bonus! There aren’t many cereals that he loves that doesn’t have dairy and he loves his cereal!
As I’m sure you can infer, we are very pleased with the Monster cereals! They all taste just like the original versions tasted and were great! If you are looking for a little nostalgia or just a yummy cereal for the kids, you’ll enjoy this one!
