Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are all ready to enjoy this first weekend in October.
I’m a big supporter of the local parks and zoos. I am a big fan of the Orange County Zoo, which is located inside Irvine Regional Park. It is a fun smaller zoo and it is a big hit with my kiddos. The Orange County Zoo offers classes for the kiddos year round. If you have toddlers, you definitely do not want to miss out on this class. The zoo has space available in their October 14th class, Bats, Cats & Spiders from 10am to 11am for 3 to y year olds. The class is $5 and it covers one adult. You have to register to be able to participate. To register call 714-973-6846.

I’m a fan of great television and Glee has to be hands down one of the best shows on television. It is funny and well just plain fun to watch. You will find yourself singing, dancing and cheering right on. I’ve caught a couple of episodes and found myself singing along and grinning from ear to ear! The show is bringing musicals back and you will find yourself singing along.

I love Modern Family. When I was offered the opportunity to review and do a giveaway, I could not pass it up! This show is funny and it is the one show I look forward to watch during the week. This giveaway is for the grown ups!
Featuring an all-star cast led by Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vargara, Julie Bowen, and Ty Burrell, Modern Family takes a refreshing and funny view of what it means to raise a family in this hectic day and age. Multi-cultural relationships, adoption, and same-sex marriage are just a few of the timely issues faced by the show’s three wildly-diverse broods. No matter the size or shape, family always comes first in this hilariously “modern” look at life, love, and laughter.
The complete first season of Modern Family is coming to DVD on September 21st.
It’s giveaway time! I have two copies of Modern Family to giveaway. All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know who your favorite character is and you are entered to win.

As a thirty something mom, I have a confession to make. I was a Strawberry Shortcake junkie growing up and I have to admit, I still am sort of. I still get a kick out of Strawberry Shortcake and to my surprise, my five year old daughter has recently began to show signs of obsession with the sweet smelling girl and friends.
When I was asked if I would love to review and giveaway two fun DVD’s I jumped right on it!
Strawberry Shortcake’s Berrywood Here We Come, is a fun treat for any little girl. Strawberry Shortcake and friends head off to visit Strawberry’s movie star friend in Berrywood. The movie follows their adventures and helps her movie star friend realize that not everything is as it seems. They learn valuable life lessons and have fun in their adventures. The movie will sure to be hit with your little girl.
Strawberry Shortcake’s The Glimmerberry Ball Movie is one that your little girl will not be able to resist. It is my daughter’s absolute new favorite movie. Follow Strawberry Shortcake as she prepares for the Big Ball, exchange presents with friends and solve a mystery. There is also a valuable life lesson to be learned- Friends helping Friends. I was very impressed to learn that Strawberry Shortcake movies share great life lessons and messages. The movies are delightful!
The Glimeerberry Ball Movie and Berrywood Here We Come are both available at your favorite retailer or online sites such as Amazon.
It’s giveaway time! Two lucky winners will receive both movies. All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know why you would want to win and you are entered to win. The contest will close on Sunday September 6th at 11:59pm. Winner will be chosen at random. Good luck!

I have to admit, I had heard about the book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but I have not yet read it. After watching this really cute and funny film, I can’t wait to get my hands on the book. The book is perfect for a family night.
The movie along with the move centers around Greg Heffley, a soon to be middle schooler, along with his best friend, Rowley Jefferson. Greg hopes that middle school will be different and becomes focused on a quest to become popular. The more he tries, the more he fails. It is a funny movie and I think one that we can all relate to. It deals with the awkwardness that comes with junior high/middle school, friendships and character. I really enjoyed the movie and I think you will too!
The movie is availabe on DVD and Blue Ray on Tuesday, August 3rd at retailers nationwide.
It’s giveaway time!
I have one copy of Diary of a Wimpy Kid to giveaway. All you have to do is leave a comment on why you would like to watch this movie. Contest closes on Thursday, August 5th at 11:59PM. Winner will be selected at random on Friday morning. Good Luck!
