Several years ago we decided to say goodbye to cable. Yes it was a sad day but we needed to adjust our budget and cable was so expensive. Local channels were the only thing we had for a year until we decided it was time to bring back our favorite shows that we’ve missed. But there was one problem we didn’t want that hefty cable bill to show up again so we had to come up with an affordable solution.

After researching we came across the Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player. There were so many great reviews and features we loved about it and guess what? It was in our budget!! After setting it up and trying it out we could not get enough from movies, shows, live TV, YouTube and even our favorites photos streaming right from our TV. So we finally ditched cable for good and our wallet has thanked us. Wondering why you should cut cable and stream check out the reasons below.

Happy Birthday, Reggie!

Our family dog turned 2 and of course, we had to celebrate with a doggy party filled with treats, decorations, and presents. Since he is our only pet we tend to spoil him. I mean, isn’t that what you’re supposed to do?

We got our dog 2 years ago at the humane society after my kids begged and begged to get a dog. It took me years to come to the conclusion of agreeing to get one. The day that we found him just had to be because he was literally dropped off that morning and whined and cried when he saw us wanting to come home with us. He was adoptable right away and we had to wait 4 days to come back to get him. Ever since we brought our beagle, Reggie home he has been a great addition to our family bringing us so much joy. We love him so much and he loves us just the same. Before I start to tear up let’s talk about the party.

reggie-birthday

We picked up some decorations such as his party hat that only ended up staying on long enough for photos. We even found a doggy cake that he liked so much and literally ran off with the entire cake and sent us chasing after him. Presents included squeaky plushies, balls and other goodies that he enjoyed playing with.

dog-food-at-dollar-general

The best present was getting his favorite dog food, Purina® Dog Chow® in 20lbs or 35lbs found at Dollar General. He loves the taste of it and it’s nice to know that he is getting 23 Essential Vitamins and Minerals providing 100% complete and balanced nutrition adult dogs need to help them live long healthy lives. On October 10th, you can take advantage of 11% savings on Purina® Dog Chow® at Dollar General! The offer is available in-store and online.

I think he had a great 2nd birthday and can’t wait to spend many more with him doing just the same as in spoiling him. How do you celebrate your dog’s birthday?

Salute our vets by giving back such as sending a care package, donate, say thank you, volunteer and shop for a cause to name a few. They are so many more ways you can help a vet out and they definitely will appreciate it.

A spa day is always calling my name but not my wallet. While it may be not the same experience of being in a spa you can do similar treatments for minimal money and look and feel fabulous in the end. I like to pamper myself every now and then with a spa day at home. Things I like to do are listed below.

spa-day-at-home

Spa Day at Home

Facial Care
Remove all makeup and dirt from face by washing it with facial cleanser and pat dry. Steam face by filling up the sink with hot water and putting your face over it and a towel over your head to keep the steam in for about 5 minutes. Apply a facial mask, rest on the couch while letting it dry. Rinse face with lukewarm water, pat dry and apply moisturizer.

Manicure
Soak nails for 5 minutes. Dry nail bed and apply cuticle remover and push back cuticles with a cuticle pusher. File nails and removes access file shavings. Apply a base coat, let dry. Apply nail color and let dry. Finish with a top coat.

Great Movie
Finish off the spa at home day with a great movie such as Freaky Friday: A New Musical is now available on DVD. It is packed with Exclusive Bonus Content Including Bloopers, Deleted Scenes and Audition Tapes! Check out some information about the movie, and the cast below.

About Freaky Friday: A New Musical

A contemporary musical update of the classic comedic story, “Freaky Friday” is based on Disney Theatrical Productions’ stage adaptation of the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers. Sixteen-year-old Ellie Blake and her uber-organized mom Katherine, are constantly at odds about Ellie’s messy room, sloppy clothes, and seemingly careless attitude. Ellie really misses her dad who passed away a few years ago; she bickers with her younger brother and argues with Katherine who’s getting ready to marry her fiancé, Mike – tomorrow. As mother and daughter quarrel, they accidentally break the treasured hourglass given to Ellie by her father and then, suddenly, they magically switch bodies. Now, Ellie and Katherine must trade places at work and at school, and, during one crazy day, they’ll learn to understand and appreciate each other.

Cast: Cozi Zuehlsdorff as Ellie; Heidi Blickenstaff as Katherine; Ricky Heas Adam; Alex Désert as Mike; and Jason Maybaum as Fletcher.

My-Early-Morning-Routine

My mornings used to consist of getting the kids up and ready for school and then going right back to bed waking up around noon. I’ve always wanted to be a morning person but was more of a night owl person as I would stay up till as late as 3 am and then sleeping till noon or 1 pm.

That all changed when I recently got a full-time job outside the home last month. Now that I have to be at work by 7 am it was time to adjust getting up earlier. At first, I started to stretch it out as much as I could but then I realized I was rushing to get out the door and that is not me. I needed more time so I changed my routine and found that getting up at 4:30 am was the best time and increased my productivity plus gave me some time to relax a bit. I broke down my morning routine below.

coffee-brewer

My Morning Routine

4:30 AM
I make sure to set several alarms so I am up on time. Believe there are times where I’m like just 15 more minutes but then I feel guilty that I won’t have enough time to get everything done so I just get up. Since I work out in the evening, I make sure to shower and dry my hair before bed that way I can just take a refresher shower without washing my hair again. Then I get dressed, curl my hair and put my makeup on.

coffee-in-the-morning

5:00 AM
This is my time where I can take a moment to myself and clear my head. I brew a cup of NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE® 2 in 1 Coffee + Creamer Single Serve Pods, French Vanillaor Hazelnut, sit on the couch and watch TV. I love the combination of NESCAFÉ® medium roast coffee with delicious COFFEE-MATE® French Vanilla flavored creamer together in the same pod. Can we talk about a time saver?! I literally just stick the pod in my coffee maker and let it do the work. For best results, shake the pod before brewing and run hot water through brewer after use to prevent blockage.

5:30 AM
After I enjoyed my cup of coffee and some me time I take a little bit of time to tidy up around the house and pack lunches. I keep the tidying to a minimal such as putting away dishes, wiping up the kitchen counter or gathering dirty clothes.

productivity-in-the-morning

5:50 AM
I open up my project planner book to see what blog projects I have due that day and take the time to get them prepared from writing to editing photos and scheduling on social media. I also use this time to answer emails.

6:20 AM
Now that I have myself ready to go and it’s time to get the kids up to get ready for school. This is a task in itself cause my kids are not morning people at all. I wonder where they get it from? hmmm.. It usually takes me till about 6:30 am before they get up and moving.

6:45 AM
Finally, everyone is ready and it’s time for the kids to catch the bus and myself to leave for work.

coffee-at-walmart-750x256

Now I can finally say that I am a morning person. I love getting so much accomplished and not feeling rushed. Plus, the fact that NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE® 2 in 1 Coffee + Creamer Single Serve Pods, French Vanilla saves me even more time and is available at Walmart (shipped to store or online grocery pick-up) with an Ibotta rebate of $2.50 off any 1 COFFEE-MATE® Coffee Pod (10 ct.) is the cherry on top.

How do you handle your mornings?

Top-10-Disney-Halloween-Movies

This Halloween is the time to hang out with friends and family munching on some caramel corn, eating candy, dressing up and watching Halloween movies. If you like a good Halloween story and not a scary movie check out my list of top 10 Disney Halloween movies that are perfect for the entire family.

Top 10 Disney Halloween Movies

The Haunted Mansion

Eddie Murphy stars as a real estate agent whose family comes face-to-face with 999 grim, grinning ghosts in the creepy old Gracey Manor! Now, with the help of supernatural psychic Madame Leota, they must hilariously battle to break the mansion of its age-old curse, and do it before the clock strikes 13!

Tower of Terror

Buzzy Crocker is a hard-luck photojournalist whose unexpected encounter with an old woman leads him to investigate an unexplained, decades-old disappearance. It seems that one Halloween night, many years ago, five partygoers vanished in the elevator of the Hollywood Tower Hotel … and ever since, their ghosts have remained trapped inside the dilapidated old building!

image002-4

The Nightmare before Christmas

Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” the stop-motion animated musical-fantasy following Pumpkin King Jack Skellington’s misguided mission to make Yuletide his own, was hailed as a macabre masterpiece when it debuted in 1993 and holds a 95% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Twenty-five years later, fans can relive the merry misadventure—and sing or shriek along in brand-new sing-along mode—with the 25th Anniversary Edition of “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” The new edition allows audiences to experience the story two different ways: the original, full-length film and all-new sing-along mode, which includes pop-up lyrics to 11 unforgettable songs like “What’s This” and “This Is Halloween.” 

Halloweentown

But she soon finds herself battling wicked warlocks, evil curses, and endless surprises.

Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge

An angry warlock has stolen a magic spell book and plans to turn everyone into whatever costume they’re wearing at midnight on Halloween. It’s a race against time to get the book back and save the humans from permanent horror.
