Holiday shopping @ Twelve Oaks Mall & A $100 Gift Card Giveaway #TwelveOaksHoliday

I recently took my daughters to Twelve Oaks Mall for an afternoon of holiday shopping. Having so many stores to choose from we were able to cross off almost every gift on our shopping list. Even those hard to shop for friends. And, with so many great sale prices, we were also able to purchase a few things for ourselves. Like new outfits for Christmas day.

I was able to score a great deal on a new holiday look for myself and one for my teenage daughter at JCPenny, leaving us enough money for a little fun and indulgence shopping before heading home.

Toys, clothes, local flare, even tickets to see Wicked at the Detroit Opera House – if it’s on your list, you can buy it at Twelve Oaks Mall!

Paddington Brownie Brittle Prize Pack Giveaway #PaddingtonMovie

A few weeks ago I shared the official Paddington movie trailer and a few Paddington themed coloring and activities sheets with my readers. Today I have a new fun Paddington movie poster,Brownie Brittle recipe links and a great giveaway to share!

Paddington-1sht

From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.

Starring Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter
Capaldi, and Nicole Kidman.

Paddington arrives in theaters January 16!

I recently received an Original Favorites Cheesecake Sampler from Eli’s Cheesecake to share with my family and friends. Let me start by saying, if and when you see this box being delivered to your home – you know you’re in for a special treat. That is why we’re happy to add Eli’s Cheesecake to our 2014 Five Dollar Shake Holiday Gift Guide!

elis_cheesecake_1

Cheesecake is a favorite dessert around here! Since we don’t have it very often, our standards can be a little high. I’m happy to say that Eli’s did not disappoint. Made of the highest quality ingredients, and care. I swear each bite taste like a little bit of heaven. Just the right blend of creamy and sweetness. Each topping that we sampled, was better than the last. I’m not sure I could pick a favorite. Oh heck, yes I can – I LOVE the Original Plain cheesecake. No frills, no fuss. Just classic goodness. With impressiveness like this, it’s no surprise Eli’s Cheesecakes have been around and loved for over 30 years.

“VeggieTales In The House” An original series on Netflix! Enter to win 3-months of FREE Netflix #Giveaway

VTITH001(1)

VeggieTales, the most popular faith-based children’s entertainment brand, unveils a brand-new Netflix original series for kids, VeggieTales In the House. The all-new series marks the first time in the 21-year history of VeggieTales that Bob, Larry and the veggie crew venture off the countertop for exciting new adventures, while remaining true to the values-driven storytelling that has long made VeggieTales such a beloved part of childhood. The first five 22-minute episodes will be available for Netflix members in the US, Canada, Latin America, UK, Ireland, the Nordics, Benelux and France to watch instantly. “There’s a whole world that’s been right under our noses this whole time, and we can’t wait to see it,” said VeggieTales star Bob the Tomato. Echoed Larry the Cucumber: “The sweet potatoes are so excited, they don’t even know where to starch!”

VeggieTales In the House Logo

In VeggieTales In the House, the veggies will take on a new, refreshed look as DreamWorks Animation puts its creative muscle behind the beloved faith-based brand. VeggieTales creator Big Idea became part of DreamWorks in 2012 as part of the studio’s acquisition of Classic Media. “We’re excited to give the beloved VeggieTales a brand new adventure,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content, Netflix. “For many of our 53 million members worldwide, this will be the first time they’ve been introduced to the world’s most entertaining vegetables. We hope many more families become fans of this wholesome preschool series.”

In each 22-minute episode of VeggieTales In the House, two separate 11-minute stories impart important life lessons, designed to please both young viewers and longtime fans of the VeggieTales brand. Every episode also includes brand-new songs and, of course, the famous closing phrase that has been at the heart of VeggieTales from the beginning: “God made you special, and He loves you very much.”

Our girls and VeggieTales go way back! They love the colorful characters and stories. We like knowing that while the girls are being entertained, it’s a safe show, without any questionable language or habits for them to pick up.

You can watch “VeggieTales In The House” an original series on Netflix now!
