Over the summer my son got his first phone, an AT&T GoPhone. At first I was a little apprehensive about getting him his own phone because I wasn’t sure if he was responsible enough or even old enough. But soon after he started using it I was asking myself “Why didn’t get him a phone sooner! Now that he’s in fifth grade he has started doing more activities and sleep-overs so with him having his own phone I am able to check in on him and that really puts my mind at ease. The GoPhone is perfect for not only kids his age but for anyone looking for a reliable and affordable phone plan.
AT&T’s GoPhone is a prepaid wireless service that just recently announced new rate plans! The rate plans include unlimited data usage and new pricing options and savings on devices to keep you connected throughout the holidays, all while freeing you from an annual contract.

Now is the perfect time to upgrade to the GoPhone or if you wanting to give someone a special gift this holiday season. From now through February 28, 2015, AT&T is offering up to $30 off 4G LTE smartphones. That means you can get a new 4G LTE smartphone for as little as $69!

He transforms from a fierce Triceratops to a sleek race car with the push of a button on his remote control! This toy is recommend for kids ages 3-8 years and can work for both boys and girls. I am a huge fan of the Switch & Go Dinos line from VTech. We reviewed Jagger the T-Rex last year and my kids still play with that dinosaur over a year later. Knowing how much they love Jagger, I knew that Bronco The RC Triceratops was going to be a big hit and I was right.
With the push of a button on his remote control, Bronco transforms from a fierce triceratops to a sleek race car. The remote is super easy to use even for young kids. With the remote you can move Bronco forward, backward, left and right in both vehicle and dino modes. Every kid loves speed so with the turbo charge lever you can charge up his turbo boosters and give Bronco a burst of speed. The other buttons on the remote control his headlights, sound effects and you can even learn cool dino facts. One of the best features of Bronco is his LCD screen which displays cool customizable dinosaur eyes and driver animations.

Caress has always had some pretty great scents when it comes to their body washes and soaps. I’ve always been a fan of Caress because of not only their scents but because my skin always feels fresh and smooth after using it. I’m excited to tell you all that Caress has taken it one step further with their new Fresh Collection. With the Fresh Collection you will be able to experience freshness like never before. The new collection, featured at Walmart, has wonderful scents such as Emerald Rush, Juicy Escape and Aqua Sparkle that your skin delicately scented and beautifully fresh.
Of the three different scents the one that I am most excited to try out is the Emerald Rush. This body wash combines its two sparkling scents, Lush Gardenia & White Tea Essence, which is a great way to give your morning a powerful wake-up call. The scent is not overbearing but enough that it will leave you smelling fresh. All of the new scents, including the Emerald Rush, come in both a body wash and bar soap form.

To get our blood flowing and adrenaline pumping we first throw our own football game in the yard. This has gotten so much more fun over the years as the kids have gotten older and our able to join in.
After the family game but before the “Big Game” we like to throw our favorite steaks on the grill and have a few beers. Nothing says tailgating more than a juicy grilled steak.

*As part of the Fox Home Insiders I received a copy of this movie. All opinions expressed are my own.
We absolutely loved the first How To Train Your Dragon movie. So when my kids heard that there would be a second one, they were thrilled. We didn’t get a chance to see the movie in theaters which really bummed my kids out but luckily they didn’t have to wait long because How to Train Your Dragon 2 is now available on Blu-ray and DVD for them to enjoy anytime they like.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 , the next chapter to the Academy Award® nominated film released in 2010, is “sensational…an instant animated classic,” proclaims Access Hollywood. A hit with audiences and critics alike, the film received an outstanding audience reaction with a coveted “A” CinemaScore® and certified 92% fresh on RottenTomatoes.com. Variety’s Peter Debruge declares the film is “Braver than ‘Brave,’ more fun than ‘Frozen’…Dragon delivers.” It’s a must-own title for the whole family!
Fans will get even more excitement, adventure and, of course, more dragons when DreamWorks Animation releases DRAGONS: DAWN OF THE DRAGON RACERS, an all-new animated adventure featuring the original voice cast. A hunt for lost sheep soon turns into a high-flying sprint in the all-new epic adventure as Hiccup and friends battle to become the first Dragon Racing Champion of Berk! DRAGONS: DAWN OF THE DRAGON RACERS will be available exclusively on the Blu-ray™ combo pack, DVD double pack and Digital HD.
The all-star film talent features Jay Baruchel (This Is The End), two-time Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine), Gerard Butler (Olympus Has Fallen), Craig Ferguson (“The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”), America Ferrera (“Ugly Betty”), Academy Award® nominee Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Neighbors), T.J. Miller (“Silicon Valley”) and Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids). The film also adds the voice talent of Academy Award® nominee Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond) and Kit Harington (“Game of Thrones”).
The Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD feature hours of bonus materials that explore the world of dragons and more. Furthermore, the Blu-ray™ and Digital HD contain four exclusive featurettes, deleted scenes and a 60-minute behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of the film, shot and created by the film’s writer and director Dean DeBloi.
Just in time for Christmas there is also lot’s of fun goodies for all you How to Train Your Dragon fans. My favorite would probably be this adorable dragon hat. When you squeeze the tail the ears pop up and down. My daughter Aubrey has worn this hat every day this week to school and the kids have gone crazy over it. It’s really cute and warm too!
To go along with the movie I have some really fun printable activity sheets for you to enjoy along with your family. To print these just click on the picture and then hit print. You can print out as many as you like.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 is now available to purchase on Blu-ray and DVD. You can pick up a copy of your own today online or in stores. In the meantime I am giving away one copy of the movie. To enter follow the instructions below using Rafflecopter.

As a Fox Home Insider I received a copy of this DVD. All opinions expressed are my own.
With so many amazing kids movies out these days it takes a lot to impress me but that’s exactly what happened when I saw Earth to Echo. This is such a fun film and one that many kids can be able to imagine themselves running around trying to help Echo. If you haven’t yet seen the movie, it’s really good. It is the perfect family friendly movie and one that everyone will enjoy.
This wonderful journey, “full of adventure, bravery, excitement, and friendship…has something for audiences of all ages” (Claudia Puig, USA Today). The “lively and likable” (Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times) tale is told through the eyes of Tuck, Munch and Alex, a trio of pals who make an out-of-this-world discovery. After receiving signals on their phones, they meet Echo, a small, but amazingly energetic, alien trying to make his way back to his home planet. As they race to help their new friend, the boys will discover that little Echo has touched their hearts in unexpected ways and changed their lives forever.
Earth to Echo is all about adventure. To prepare you for this adventurous, exciting and heart warming film, I’d love to share a few ideas on ways to spend time with your friends- outside and away from your cell phones!
Pick Up Games
There is nothing like starting a sports pickup game with all your neighborhood friends. Between sitting in class all day and coming home to do homework, a quick game, whether it is hockey, baseball, basketball or soccer, will let you use up some of that energy you’ve been storing! Not only this, but this is an awesome way to make new friends.
With your parents permission of course, take a cruise around the neighborhood with your friends! Also, make sure you wear a helmet. You can use your imagination and make fun adventures out of your journey!
Hide N’ Seek
A neighborhood game of Hide N’ Seek is the ultimate outside activity. With permission from your parents, and of course, using the buddy system when it comes to hiding, Hide N’ Seek is sure to be an awesome time.
Ask your mom and dad to set up a backyard camp out for you and your friends! Start by setting up a tent and marking your territory with your sleeping bag! You can spend the night telling scary stories and eating S’mores!
The most underrated outside activity has to be chalk! It is so much fun to create fun pictures and even games with all your friends. You can play hopscotch or tic-tac-toe or use your imagination to draw wonderful pictures!
Earth to Echo is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand.
Win It: One lucky reader is going to win a copy of Earth to Echo on Blu-ray/DVD. It’s easy to enter just follow the instructions below.

I sure love a good deal especially when it’s on products that I already buy. When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck, Walgreens is one of the first places I look to. They are constantly offering amazing deals and rewards on products that it makes it easy to stock up for less. In addition to these weekly sales you will also find everyday values at Walgreens like Suave® Professionals which you can get for a $3 everyday value.
These Suave®Professionals products include the new Suave Professionals Body Wash which smell amazing. They are infused with spa-inspired ingredients that leave your skin looking beautiful. Suave® Body washes have bright, clean scents that leave your skin feeling fresh and delightfully fragrant.
To help stretch your money even further from now through 8/1, you can earn 2,000 Balance Rewards Points when you buy $6 worth of Suave® Professional products. The 2,000 Balance Rewards are equal to $2, which you can then turn around to purchase something else on your list. So essentially you are getting $6 worth of Suave Professionals products for $4. This balance rewards offer is good on Suave® Professionals Body Wash and Suave Professionals Lotion Products which are sold at Walgreens.
Now is the time to stock up and to help you get started I am giving away a $50 Walgreens Gift Card! To Enter: Follow the instructions below using Rafflecopter. Good Luck!

Our summer vacation is half way over so we are now trying to figure out new and fun things to do during the days. It gets hot here in Oklahoma, so finding activities to do inside can be a bit of a challenge. One of the things both of my kids love to do is play with PLAY-DOH. Hasbro has a really fun and creative line of PLAY-DOH books and they recently debuted three NEW series of books, all of which continue to live up to their tag line…“Where Learning and Creativity Take Shape.
Explore the pages of these entertaining books with your trusty animal guides as they share their knowledge. This exciting, new series provides youngsters with interesting facts about their favorite things. Each 10-page, full-color book includes five tutorials and four cans of PLAY-DOH compound, so young sculptors can create their own imitations of the PLAY-DOH illustrations as well as add finishing touches to each scene in the book. The first title in the series is PLAY-DOH Hands On Learning: In The Jungle which features the adventures of a little lion who makes five new friends as he explores the jungle – a cheeky monkey, a happy hippo, a friendly frog, a sneaky snake, and a spotted giraffe. PLAY-DOH Hands On Learning: Under the Sea takes young readers deep into the ocean with an adorable octopus, a super sea star, a clownish clown fish, a fancy sea horse, and a not-so-scary shark. Each colorful page includes amazing facts about sea and its inhabitants making learning fun.
PLAY-DOH: Sound Series:
Stretch those vocal chords – it’s time for sing-along! In this musical series, two childhood mainstays come together – PLAY-DOH sculpts and nursery songs. Press the button on the musical books and follow along with illustrations of lovable animals. All pre-schoolers will love the classic childhood tunes of PLAY-DOH: Old MacDonald Had a Farm with all of its moo-moos here and oink-oinks there and PLAY-DOH: The Wheels on the Bus that go ‘round and ‘round. The books are sure to perfect to bring along on family summer road trips.
PLAY-DOH: Story Fun Series:
Little ones love to explore the world. With trips through the truck yard, the farm, and the jungle featuring adorable PLAY-DOH animals, these books teach children – ages 3 and up – about their environments and the places they live. Each 12-page board book comes with a can of PLAY-DOH compound making it fun to transform dirt and rubble into a beautiful city in PLAY-DOH: Trucks; create new animal friends for Mommy and Baby Giraffe in PLAY-DOH: Jungle Friends; and spend a day on the farm with PLAY-DOH: Farm Friends and learn about the many farm animals that Mommy and Baby Cow meet.
My kids love these books and they keep them entertained for hours. These are great for toddlers all they way up to elementary age kids and help your kids get creative while playing with their PLAY-DOH. For more information on these books you can visit http://www.silverdolphinbooks.com/.
Giveaway: Thanks to Silver Dolphin Books one lucky reader will win a prize pack of all seven PLAY-DOH Books making their debut this summer (listed above)! ARV is $87 . To enter follow the instructions below.
