Top 5 Reasons to See Disney's Frozen: Open in Theaters November 27


On November 27th, Disney's Frozen opened up in theaters across the country and I took the kids to see it!  I love Disney movies but this one in particular was a request by my son, he has wanted to see it ever since he saw the first preview.  I was a little shocked because he does not usually want to see "princess" movies but I think it had aspects that appealed to all!  Here is a little blurb about the movie:

Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom

Did I tell you all I am a new Aunt?!  That's right, a month ago my nephew was born and I was there to welcome him into the world.  I love that little guy!!  With the holidays coming up, I asked my sister what I should get him for Christmas.  Her reply?  Diapers! Ha!  So in the spirit of giving, I joined a great group of bloggers to bring all you new mothers this awesome giveaway because I know you can use it.  DIAPERS!!!!

BabyShowersByMail is the home of the "Year Supply of Diapers". BabyShowersByMail has a Diaper and Wipe delivery which can be purchased in packages of 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and even an entire 12 month year!

Easy 1-Step Rapid Roast from Omaha Steaks: Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Disclosure:  I was given this product free for review purposes.  However, all opinions on Omaha Steaks are my own.

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is here, can you believe it?!  I can, I am already starting to stress!  My days are filled with Christmas shopping (yes, I am getting an early start on it this year!), menu preparations, baking and holiday planning.  Not to mention the kids extracurricular activities fit in between homework, school and work!  Yep, my calendar is full.  This leaves very little time during the week to actually prepare a healthy meal for the family.  But thanks to Omaha Steaks, they have it covered!

Shepherds Pie Recipe: A Skinnier Version To Delicious Comfort Food

Do you love Shepherds Pie as much as I do?  It really is one of my favorite cooler weather comfort foods but what I do not like is the calories.  Some of the classic Shepherds Pie recipes is filled with butter, milk and sometimes it is even stuffed into a pie shell.  Not mine!  I have taken the original recipe and "skinnied" it up but left the delicious flavor!

The best part of this recipe?  My family LOVES it!  Oh yes, they loves it so much that they do not even pick out the vegetables that are in it!  The second best part of this recipe?  It is super easy to make!  So, without further ado, here is:

Evergreen Naturalworks: Green Organic Soy & Shea

I received free samples of this product from a family friend.  I loved the product so much that I decided to talk about it on my blog.

Being a Biochemist by profession, I am aware of the harm harsh chemicals can do to our bodies.  This is why I am a big proponent of green/natural products and one of the reasons I fell in love with Evergreen Naturalworks.  I actually found out about Evergreen Naturalworks because the owner is a family friend.  She sent me some samples of her products and I loved it so much that I decided to share it with you all!  First let me tell you a little about her company.

Last month the family and I attended Barnum & Bailey's: Built To Amaze show at the Scottrade Center here in St. Louis.  The kids had never been to the circus and it had been many, many years since I have been so we definitely were excited to attend!  The circus brings out the kid in all of us and shows us we can do whatever we put our minds to!  Because really, who would have thought that you could train a Tiger?  But you can...
