Arriving on DVD January 30th -- Nella the Princess Knight (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent a review copy from the vendor in exchange for an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Journey to a Far Away Kingdom with Nella, 
Nickelodeon's Brave Young Heroine 
 

Available on DVD January 30, 2018
 
Do you have a Nella the Princess Knight fan in your house? My youngest daughter, Bella, can't get enough of this show.  And, whenever it comes on the television, I find myself singing along to the catchy theme song, which then stays in my head all day.  With so many boy-knight shows on television, it is nice to see a show geared towards young girls, that features a princess knight.  Bella especially loves how Nella has dark skin like she does, and how she is so courageous, and is always ready to take on daring quests to protect her kingdom. 

Whenever Nella the Princess Knight is on, we all have to be silent so that Bella can watch. This is one show she is glued to the television and can't look away.  There is so much adventure and fun that she is afraid if she talks or gets up for something, she will miss a great part. :-)  Being such a huge Nella the Princess Knight fan, you can only imagine how excited Bella was the other day when we received an advance copy of the new DVD, which contains 8 full-length episodes (all of which have already aired on television).  We were getting ready to head out the door for a class, so Bella was quick to grab from the mail to bring along for the car ride.  And, by the time we got to where we were going, Bella was all smiles, as she had so much fun watching some of her favorite episodes.  And, on the drive home, she watched the entire DVD again, before putting it back in the DVD case to bring in the house for future viewing. :-)

We have only had this DVD for a short time, but Bella has been opting to watch this DVD when it is her television time.  She can't get enough of this DVD, and I know fans of the show will feel the same way, once they watch the DVD.  Bella gives this DVD two thumbs up, and can't wait for more Nella the Princess Knight DVDs to come out, so that she can grow her collection of this population animated series further.

So, be sure to mark your calendar for January 30th, when this DVD arrives in stores.  Or, pre-order now and have it arrive to your doorstep on the release date, so that you can surprise that special Nella the Princess Knight fan in your life with it.

Forever My Girl, Arriving in Theaters January 19th, Will Make for a Great Date Night Movie #forevermygirl @4evermygirl

Disclosure: I was provided with promotional product in exchange for promoting this upcoming movie release. However, all views shared are mine and mine alone.


In theaters this Friday, January 19th!!!



Did you set any resolutions for 2018?  For me, I made two resolutions that I hope I can keep...1) Make a point to have "me time" each and every day, even if it is just 10 minutes at the end of the day, or first thing in the AM before the girls get up; and 2) Have a date night with my husband at least once a month (hopefully outside the house).  Last year I gave up drinking soda and stuck with it, and this year I wanted to make resolutions that would benefit not only me personally, but also my husband and my girls.  With two young girls, ages 6 and 7, which I am a stay-at-home home to and also homeschool, it is hard to have a date night outside the house, with everyone's busy schedules.  The girls are in classes 3-4 nights a week, and my husband has been busy with projects at work, which keep him later at night or have him coming home and pulling out the computer after the girls go to bed to continue working.  Life gets busy, and we adults/parents, usually put ourselves last.  But, I have found that without "me-time" to refresh and recharge your batteries, or finding "adult-time" to reconnect with your significant other without the kids around, the family as a whole can suffer.  So, this is why I am trying my hardest in 2018 to make time for myself and my husband and I, in hopes for a stronger family with more love and a little less stress from the craziness of everyday life.

This year will mark twenty-one years that my husband and I have been together.  We met in college and began dating my freshman year of school, and after college we moved into an apartment together, rescued a dog which was like a child to us, and then began our life as a family.  Fast forward to today and we have two beautiful and smart young ladies, who stole my husband's heart the moment he laid eyes on them.  When we started dating, he said that he gave him whole heart to me, but that all changed once the girls arrived, as his heart which he says grew times times larger, now has unconditional love for all these of his girls.  And, each and every night when he tucks the girls in to bed after reading them a bedtime story and kissing them goodnight, he reminds them that they are forever his girl. And, when he kisses me goodnight, he tells me the same thing. The girls love hearing him say you are "Forever My Girl," and I hope they remember this as they grow older and spread their wings.  They will always be "Daddy's little one," and the ones who made his heart grow bigger. I still remember him telling me in the delivery room right before we welcomed our first daughter, that he had butterflies similar to those he had when we went on our first date in college, which was dinner and a movie.  He was filled with all sorts of emotions -- happiness, nervousness, love, etc., and when I went into the labor, these emotions came rushing back, and once he set eyes on Savannah, and then Bella a year later, he fell madly in love, at first time, all over again.  February, we will be celebrating our anniversary and I am already planning a fun dinner and movie night out.  We will be heading to the same restaurant we went to 21 years ago, and then take in a movie at the theater we went out.  It will be nice to go back to where it all started and enjoy quality time together, and then return home to our two girls, who completed our family and filled our hearts with so much love, more than we ever imagined or could have hoped for.  

While February is a few weeks away, our first planned date night out for 2018 will be to see the movie "Forever My Girl."  When I first heard about this movie, I was intrigued to learn more because of the film's title.  Knowing that my husband tells this to my girls and I, I thought this was a sign from above, and the perfect film to start the new year with, for our date night.  For the past few years it has been hard to have a date night out of the house, and we usually end up ordering a pizza or other take out and watch movies after the girls go to bed.  Sometimes, the girls fight to go to sleep and our date night movie turns into a family movie night double feature.  Oh, how I love to cuddle up on the couch with my husband (and girls when they are up), and enjoy quality time together.  These are times when I try to forget about the long to-do list I still have to tackle or the worries of being an adult and just be in the moment and enjoy time with those I love.  

"Forever My Girl," which arrives in theaters this Friday, January 19th, is a perfect date night movie, as it is about courtship, romance and love enduring all things including all the craziness of our busy lives.  If you are not familiar with this movie, here is a brief synopsis of the movie, as well as the official movie trailer...


Synopsis: 

"Forever My Girl tells the story of music super-star Liam Page (Alex Roe) who left his bride, Josie (Jessica Rothe), at the altar choosing fame and fortune instead. However, Liam never got over Josie, his one true love, nor did he ever forget his Southern roots in the small community where he was born and raised. When he unexpectedly returns to his hometown for the funeral of his high school best friend, Liam is suddenly faced with the consequences of all that he left behind.  Forever My Girl is an uplifting romantic film about second chances.  It releases in theaters on January 19th.

FOREVER MY GIRL is about second chances and finding our way back home.  This wonderful film is perfect for all of us who believe in courtship, romance, and love enduring all things.  It also has an amazing music soundtrack that includes hot CMA New Artist of the Year nominee Lauren Alaina, Travis Tritt, and Alex Roe who stars in the film as country star “Liam Page.”




Doesn't this look like an amazing movie?  Ever since I first saw the trailer a couple months ago, this movie has been on my radar and calendar as a must see in 2018.  And, I can't wait for this weekend for a dinner and movie date with my husband.    And, when we kiss the girls goodnight and I hear my husband tell them "You are forever my girl," I will smile, knowing that 21 years ago this year we began our courtship which has led us today with a life I never imagined would be possible, and one that I am so blessed to be living each and every day.  

It is not too late to add a few new resolutions for 2018 if you haven't made any as of yet.  If you are like me and have let the craziness of your family's busy schedule get in the way of "me time" or "us time" with your significant other, why not join me in trying to make that much needed quality time.  And, start this year off right with a nice evening out with dinner and a movie.  "Forever My Girl" will delight both men and women, and fans of country music will go crazy for the film's soundtrack.  I keep finding myself playing the movie trailer just to listen to the music.  It is that good and catchy. I will definitely be picking up the soundtrack to listen to in the car, and when I am enjoying "me time."

See you all at the movies! :-)

Mark Your Calendars: Paddington 2 Arrives in Theaters This Friday -- This is Definitely a Must-See Family-Friendly Movie for 2018! #Paddington2

Disclosure: I was provided with promotional material from the vendor in exchange for promoting this upcoming family-friendly movie release.  However, all views shared are mine and mine alone.




Are you looking for a great family-friendly movie to take the whole family to this weekend?  How about Paddington 2, which arrives in theaters on Friday, January 12th.  If you have missed the official trailer to this cute movie, which looks even better than the first Paddington movie, you can see it below, along with a brief synopsis of the movie...

"Following the worldwide hit “Paddington,” one of the most successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated sequel finds Paddington (Ben Whishaw) happily settled with the Brown family in London, where he has become a popular member of the local community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. 


While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it.  But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.



Paddington 2 stars: Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Hugh Grant (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Sally Hawkins (Jayne Eyre), Brendan Gleeson (Into the Storm), Julie Walters (Mamma Mia) and Ben Whishaw (The Hollow Crown) as the voice of Paddington."


Doesn't this look like a fun movie?  Every time my girls and I see the trailer, we can't help but laugh all the way through it, as it really is funny.  And, when we aren't giggling, we are letting ohh and ahh's, how cute, as you can't help but fall in love with cuddly and oh so cute brown bear we all know and love, Paddington Bear.  I grew up loving Paddington, and still have my childhood Paddington brown bear, and love how I can not only share the classic Paddington stories with the my girls that I grew up with, but also these wonderful family-friendly movies, including the earlier release, Paddington, and the soon to be hit movie, Paddington 2, when it arrives in theaters in Friday.

We have had January 12th circled on the calendar for over a month now, as my youngest was the first to catch the Paddington 2 trailer and called us all in the room to watch it over and over again. After seeing the trailer we were all agreed that this would be a great movie to start off 2018 going to the theater as a family to see together.  So, the girls have been counting down the days, as if they were awaiting Santa's arrival all over again, eagerly awaiting for the 12th, as they know the next day after gymnastics class in the AM, we will be heading for a lunch and dinner date as a family.  It is hard to say who is excited more, as, I too, can't wait to see this movie.  And, thanks to Santa, who left the previous Paddington movie under our tree, we have been having a blast catching up on Paddington by watching the DVD at home and on the go.  The girls wanted to make sure they remembered all the great things that happened in the first movie, so that they would be ready to go into the theater and pick up where the previous Paddington movie left off.


I could go on and on about how great this movie is going to be, but if you love family-friendly movies or were a fan of the first Paddington movie, then I know this movie has been on your family's radar as a must see movie.  And, if it hasn't I hope the official trailer above will excite you to plan a fun movie date with your whole family this weekend, when Paddington 2 arrives in theaters (in theaters Friday!).  I can't wait to hear what you and your family think of the movie, so be sure to come back and leave your thoughts on the movie in the comments section below. Enjoy the movie!

My girls really enjoyed the playful and oh so colorful illustrations done by Helen Dardik.  We found ourselves lingering on each page to take in all the details of the characters and scenery.  Even though bagels and other tasty sweet treats don't talk or dance, you can't help but let your imagination wander as you read this book with your child, as the illustration are so life-like and really make you want this to be a true story....or, better yet, want you to get into the kitchen with your kids to bake up some tasty treats.

Arriving Tomorrow on DVD and Digital From Warner Bros. Home Entertainment: SCOOBY-DOO! & BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a review copy from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

MYSTERY INC. & THE DARK KNIGHT UNITE AS
WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT
AND DC ENTERTAINMENT RELEASE




TOGETHER AGAIN AFTER 45 YEARS IN AN ALL-NEW ANIMATED FILM

My girls were excited to receive this new DVD and help me review, becauase they are both all about DC superheroes, thanks to all the new animated movies and toys featuring the likes of Batman and Batgirl.  They thought it was so neat to have Batman and Scooby-Doo and friends joining forces to fight crime.  And, if this pairing wasn't enough to get Scoooby-Doo and Batman fans excited, they will also be happy to see the whole Scooby-Doo gang and troublemakers they contend with like Ghost Clown, Miner 49er and Spooky Space Kook.  And, if that wasn't enough this DVD has classic DC villians including the Joker, Catwoman, the Riddler, and even Poison Ivy, to name a few.  

Like the title of the DVD suggests, Scooby Doo and Batman join forces to get rid of evil, when both their worlds unite and wreck havoc on the city.  From start to finish this movie, will have kids (and adults) glued to the screen to see what happens next.  My girls really loved getting to root for Batman and friends, and Scooby-Doo and friends.  And, when the movie was over, my girls turned to me and asked when they could watch it again.  I was expecting to wait a day or two to watch again, but the girls were so excited to watch it and couldn't stop talking my husband's ear off when he got home from work, so they watch it again in the same night -- and, to the it was just as great as the first time.  They were on the edge of their seats, and cheering on their favorite characters, and telling the villains to go away.  I love watching the girls get excited about a show or movie like this, and it is even more special when my husband can join in the fun and gets into the movie, too.  Come on, who doesn't love Scooby-Doo and Batman?  And, when you pick up the new Scooby-Doo and Batman: The Brave and the Bold, you get the best of both worlds, in this fun and entertaining movie, that your family will want to watch time and again.

We have only had this DVD for a few days, but the girls have already watched it a few times so far. I don't see them stopping anytime soon. And, whenever they are talking with friends or playing DC supergirls with their friends, they can't help but bring up this new DVD and can't stop raving about.

So, if you are looking for a fun new movie to share with your family, or to surprise that special Scooby-Doo and/or Batman fan in your life, then you will definitely want to check out this new DVD, arriving in stores and in digital format tomorrow.
