Move Review & Giveaway – Mom’s Night Out (ends 9/15/14)

 

Mom's Night Out

Available today on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download is the comedy film Mom’s Night Out.

Mom’s Night Out stars one of my favorite actresses, Patricia Heaton (The Middle), Sarah Drew (Grey’s Anatomy), Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings triology) and country music superstar Trace Adkins.

Allyson (Sarah Drew) is a frazzled mother of three young children. She tries to be the best mother that she can be but she tends to get overwhelmed at times.

One night she breaks down and hides inside her closet. When her husband Sean comes home he joins her in the closet to comfort her. While in the closet Allyson notices a pair of high heel shoes that she loves and hasn’t had a chance to wear in years.

With her husband’s encouragement she decides that she wants to have a Mom’s Night Out with two of her friends – Sondra, the pastor’s wife and mother to a rebellious teenager, and Izzy, a mom who is expecting again and is afraid to let her husband know about the wonderful news.

The girls plan on getting dressed up and going out to eat at a fancy restaurant that they heard good things about. The plan had their husband’s getting together and taking care of the children for a few hours. After all, they kids are with their fathers, what could possibly go wrong?

MNO

A LOT can go wrong!

From a stolen car to a missing baby – even arrests – A LOT does go wrong.

Will anyone make it through the night? Will this be the first, last and only Mom’s Night Out ever? To find out you need to pick up a copy of Mom’s Night Out which is available today where most movies are sold.

There are several bonus features included on the Blu-ray and DVD for the film.

The Blu-ray™ and DVD are loaded with family-friendly bonus materials, including a blooper reel, deleted scenes and commentary with the Erwin Brothers and producer Kevin Downes.  Fans can also enjoy special featurettes, including a discussion with filmmakers in The Heart of Mom’s Night Out, giving the back story that inspired the film as something their wives and mothers could relate to. The Art of Improv is an exploration into the film’s experimental improvisation, and The Art of Action gives fans a deconstructed look at the film’s car chase sequence.

Bonus Features:

  • Commentary with Directors Andrew & Jon Erwin, as well as Producer Kevin Downes
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Blooper Reel

Special Featurettes:

  • The Heart of Mom’s Night
  • OutCasting Mom’s Night Out
  • The Art of Improv
  • The Art of Action

The film is rated PG for mild thematic elements and some action. It runs for 98 minutes.

This is a cute movie, and funny too. I think most moms will be able to relate to this film and see themselves in one of the mom’s. I used to see myself as Allyson, the young mother who is totally overwhelmed by everything. Now I can relate more to Patricia Heaton’s character Sondra because I’m now dealing with teenagers.

This film deals with parenthood, marriage, friendship and love all rolled up into one crazy adventure.

If you are looking for a fun film to watch with your family, or looking to host a get together with your best mom friends, check out Mom’s Night Out.

You can check out www.MomsNightOutMovie.com for more information about the film.

Here is the film’s trailer for your enjoyment.

Dav Pilkey’s Ricky Ricotta Series and Telescope Giveaway! (ends 9/12/14)

 

Kids Reading

I work with children in a childcare setting. Most children are only with us for a short time, however we do see a few regulars from time to time.

We like to encourage children to read. That is important to us. That is why we give each child who comes through our doors a free book that they can take home and enjoy.

The books we give our are donated. Many have been “well loved” and show obvious signs of wear and tear. Other books are practically brand new.

Not too long ago I received a set of books from the Ricky Ricotta series. The books are written by Dav Pilkey and illustrated by Dan Santat. I have never heard of the series until now.

I am familiar with Dav Pilkey. He writes one of my kid’s favorite book series Captain Underpants.

I read through the first book in the series, Ricky Ricotta’s Mighty Robot. I loved it! I wish these books were around when my son was younger. He’s a “reluctant reader”. He always has been. I think he would have really enjoyed these books.

I did give him the books I received to review and asked if he would read them but he told me “no”. I guess he felt like they were too “young” for him. That might be true, but I enjoyed reading the book and my husband read most of one of the books to and he enjoyed it at well and clearly we are NOT the “target audience” for these books. :-)

In addition to action packed stories and fun illustrations there are also “mini-comics” throughout the books too.

Ricky Ricotta

If you are not familiar with the Ricky Ricotta series here is a brief synopsis.

Ricky Ricotta is a little mouse with BIG problems! Every day he is picked on by the neighborhood bullies. He lives in Squeakyville with his mother and father, and being an only mouse, he is often lonely. That is until SOMETHING BIG HAPPENS! A giant flying robot enters Ricky’s life and an unlikely friendship is born! Together, Ricky and his Robot must save the planet from a galaxy bursting with bad guys!

These are fun books!

I also know that they appeal to children because I took all four books to work with me and they were GONE in two days. The boys went crazy for them – even the older boys (11+ years old).

As I mentioned earlier, Dav Pilkey wrote Captain Underpants. He’s also written other popular books.

When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he suffered from ADHD, reading challenges, and behavioral problems. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hallway every day. Dav loved to draw and make up stories, so he spent this time creating his own original comic books. 

In second grade, Dav created a comic book about a superhero named Captain Underpants. His teacher ripped it up and told him he couldn’t spend the rest of his life making silly books. Fortunately, Dav was not a very good listener.

Dav has written and illustrated many bestselling books for children, including the Captain Underpants series with over 70 million books in print, the Ricky Ricotta series, and The Paperboy, a Caldecott Honor Book.

Dav grew up in Ohio and now lives with his wife in the Pacific Northwest. You can learn more about him at www.Pilkey.com.

The books are illustrated by Dan Santat who has illustrated many other books.

Dan Santat attended the University of California, San Diego, where he received a degree in biology. Thankfully, he had a change of heart and went on to pursue an illustration degree from the Art Center College of Design, where he graduated with honors. 

After a few years of designing art for video games, Dan switched his attention to children’s books. Since then, Dan has written and illustrated several bestselling books for children, including The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend and Sidekicks. Dan also created the Disney animated hit The Replacements.

Dan was born in Brooklyn, New York, and now lives in Southern California with his family. You can find out more by visiting his website at www.Dantat.com.

There are a few books in the Ricky Ricotta series and I suspect there will be many more added to the series over the years. These are really fun books.

Ricky Ricotta Books

BOOK ONE: RICKY RICOTTA’S MIGHTY ROBOT

Little Ricky Ricotta has a problem: the bullies at school pick on him all the time. Until one day, he saves the life of a mighty robot. Together, Ricky and his Robot face the bullies, and save Squeakyville from a giant evil lizard monster. That’s what friends are for!

BOOK TWO: RICKY RICOTTA’S MIGHTY ROBOT VS MUTANT MOSQUITOS FROM MERCURY

Mr. Mosquito hates Mercury. The days are so hot, they melt his flip-flops, and the nights are so cold, his toothpaste freezes solid! He’s decided to take over Earth instead. Ricky and his Robot must stop his army of massive Mutant Mosquitoes!

BOOK THREE: RICKY RICOTTA’S MIGHTY ROBOT VS VOODOO VULTURES FROM VENUS

Victor Von Vulture hates Venus. His toasted cheese sandwiches are always way too gooey, and ice cream melts in a second! So he and his army of Voodoo Vultures try to cast a spell on the Earth. It’s up to Ricky and his Robot to stop them!

BOOK FOUR: RICKY RICOTTA’S MIGHTY ROBOT VS THE MECHA-MONKEYS FROM MARS

Little Ricky Ricotta has a problem: the bullies at school pick on him all the time. Until one day, he saves the life of a mighty robot. Together, Ricky and his Robot face the bullies, and save Squeakyville from a giant evil lizard monster. That’s what friends are for!

Check out the trailer for the book series.

 

I love it!

Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Best Friends available on DVD September 16, 2014 and FREE Coloring Page. Giveaway ends 9/16/14

 

BerryBestFriends_DVD_Spine

Attention Strawberry Shortcake fans young and old – a brand new Strawberry Shortcake DVD is going to be released on September 16, 2014!

I used to LOVE Strawberry Shortcake when I was younger. I even had a Strawberry Shortcake doll. I wish I knew what happened to her. There were other dolls too, but I only had Strawberry Shortcake.

The new DVD is called Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Best Friends.

It’s friends first for Strawberry Shortcake and her favorite gal pals in Berry Best Friends! When Orange Blossom’s general store overflows with a new line of fruits and veggies, she tries to handle all of the details without any help from others, and, as a result, she’s exhausted! Strawberry is excited to be building a new marketplace, but has a tough time learning how to graciously say, “no, thank you.” Both soon learn that talking about what you need is the berry best thing to do. When the BFFs form a new band called Strawberry and the Sweet Beats, they’re all jazzed to head out on the road…except for Orange, who is afraid to admit that she doesn’t want to leave home. Once she tells her friends how she feels, she’s ready to set out for a rockin’ good time!

It sounds like a cute DVD. I haven’t seen it yet but I am expecting a copy to review any day now.

The film will also be available on VOD (video on demand) on September 16, 2014.

The film is 70 minutes long and is rated G.

The DVD is being released by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, the industry leading worldwide marketing, sales and distribution company for all Fox produced, acquired and third party partner film and television programming.

The DVD also comes with some special features;

  • Printable Coloring Page
  • Bonus Digital Copy of Berry Best Friends
  • Bonus Digital Copy of Strawberry Shortcake: The Sweet Dreams Movie (for a limited time).

Speaking of coloring page, here is a cute coloring page you can print and enjoy with your family.

FOX 1270 SS Berry Best Friends Coloroing Sheet_FM

I’m going to print out several copies and bring them to work and share with the children I work with. They love to color and I know the girls will love this.

I also have a copy of the DVD to give to a lucky reader, compliments of Fox Home Entertainment. 

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and will end on September 16, 2014 at 11:59 PM (EST). The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified via e-mail and will have three days to reply or a new winner will be chosen in their place.

Enjoyed grilled food year round with T-Fal OptiGrill (giveaway ends 9/6/14)

 

TFal OptiGrill Giveaway

Summer is coming to a close. It’s time to squeeze out as much summer fun as you possibly can.

My family and I never had a chance to get to the beach. We’d go this coming weekend but it’s Labor Day weekend and the beach is the last place you want to go – especially if you don’t like crowds and traffic.

Although I am not a fan of the heat and humidity there are a few things I am going to miss about the summer – sitting on our balcony and watching the Fireflies/Lightening Bugs fly by, doing fun things with my family, enjoying the beautiful flowers that are so plentiful this time of year, and barbecues. Oh how we’re going to miss all the yummy summer foods like barbecued burgers, steak and chicken.

We are  not allowed a barbecue where we live (as per the Fire Marshall), unless we keep our grills 200 feet from the building (we live in a condo). That is not possible. We had to give up having a grill many years ago. I missed my grill too- that is until now.

I received to review the T-Fal OptiGrill. I’ve had similar grills before but they failed to impress me. Don’t get me wrong, they did what they were supposed to do but I found things about them I didn’t like such as hard to clean and having to “guesstimate” when the meat was cooked just the way we like it.

The T-Fal OptiGrill blows all other indoor grills away!

Sensor Cooking

The T-Fal OptiGrill has “precision grilling technology” which helps to grill your favorite foods just the way you like it ever time.

My husband likes everything well done. If he so much sees any pink he won’t eat it. He’s afraid of eating food that was not cooked well enough and getting sick from it. Prior to getting married I used to enjoy my meats medium-rare. Now I eat my meats well done too for safety reasons.

With the other grills we had we had to try and guess when the meat was fully cooked, often removing it from the grill and cutting into it just to make sure. That is not necessary with the T-Fal OptiGrill. Simply place your meat on the grill and wait for the sensor light to tell you when your meat it cooked just the way you like it.

Settings

The T-Fal OptiGrill is super easy to use. There are dedicated buttons you can select to let the grill know what kind of food you are cooking (Burgers, Chicken, Sandwiches, Sausage, Chops, Fish).

You can even grill meats that are straight from your freezer (not defrosted) which is great for people like me who often forget to take something out for dinner.

Veggie Burger (Left) and Pork Burger (Right) frozen straight from the freezer.

Veggie Burger (Left) and Pork Burger (Right) frozen straight from the freezer.

I made a pork burger and a veggie burger for my kids for lunch one day that were frozen. In no time my kids were enjoying their burgers for lunch.

The T-Fal OptiGrill has sensors that let you know the cooked state the meat is in – rare, medium, well done. You can tell by looking at the color of the lighted button on the grill. There is a guide that explains the different colors too. It’s literally “fool proof” grilling.

The big center area lights up and changes colors to indicate how the meat is cooked.

The big center area lights up and changes colors to indicate how the meat is cooked.

The sensors in the T-Fal OptiGrill can sense the thickness of the meat which helps to regular the temperature and know what to cook the meat at to reach your optimum grilled results.

Here is the T-Fal OptiGrill with the light a bright yellow which indicates that the meat was still rare. When it’s well done the light is a deep, bright red.

Grill

The grill also has a drip pan so fat can drip away from the meat helping to make the meal healthier for you. After all, no one wants to eat something that has been sitting in it’s own fat and grease.

In the above photo you can see some of the fat and grease dripping down from the grill into the pan.

So far everything we have made has turned out great including pork burgers, veggie burgers and regular hamburgers. The grill also makes grilled cheese sandwiches in mere minutes. I was shocked at how quickly the sandwich was cooked. The cheese was melted all the way through and the bread even had some neat grill marks on it.

Burgers 2

One of the things I disliked about similar grills is the clean up. I hated to clean them! Cleaning the T-Fal OptiGrill is so easy. Simply remove the drip pan and both heating plates (when cooled) and hand wash or toss in the dishwasher. Because the grill plates are coated in T-Fal non-stick coating nothing sticks to it.

I also like how easy it is to remove the plates with just a press of a button. They pop back in easy too.

Clean Up

We love this grill and have used it several times. I have yet to try grilled veggies on it but that is something I am planning on doing.

Now my family and I can enjoy grilled foods year round thanks to the T-Fal OptiGrill.

If you would like more information visit www.optigrill.t-falusa.com. The T-Fal OptiGrill can be purchased at many retail stores across the country including Walmart, Target, Macys and JCPenney to name a few.

Be sure to check out T-Fal OptiGrill on Facebook too.

Tell insets to bug OFF! this Labor Day weekend (giveaway ends 9/5/14)

 

Mosquito

Sadly the end of summer is near. We have just one more weekend to squeeze in all our favorite summer activities before vacation season is over and kids return to school.

Do you have plans for the long holiday weekend?

My family and I are going upstate to have a barbecue with friends whom we haven’t hug out with in about 15 years. Aside from that and some last minute back to school shopping that is all that we have planned.

Many people have plans to go to the beach, camping or backyard barbecues.

Did you know that  97% of Americans think it’s important to spend time outside, but two-thirds don’t think they get enough of it. Do you think you get enough time outside?

Also, I find it interesting that eight in 10 stressed people agree that being outside allows them to relax, and exactly three quarters think getting outside is important for their physical health.

So people WANT to be outside. One reason why people don’t spend as much time outdoors as they’d like is insects (bugs). Bugs are the number one factor (70%) that can spoil time outdoors, even more than sudden swings in weather (47%) and allergies (36%).

Mosquitoes are probably one of the #1 nuisances. I can’t stand those pests! Not only are they annoying but they also carry serious diseases. Growing up they didn’t bother me as much. I just swatted them off my skin or smashed them dead. I wasn’t as fearful of mosquitoes as I am now. Back then we didn’t know about things like West Nile.

OFF! has some great tips to help protect you and your family Labor Day weekend (and year round) from the West Nile Virus.

West Nile Tips OFF

Thankfully OFF! carries products to help protect you and your family.

OFF Products

I didn’t even know that OFF! had an aerosol spray. OFF! Active® Aerosol Spray is idealfor those who plan to work up a sweat playing volleyball, or chasing the kids, OFF! Active is a great solution that resists sweat.

I am familiar with OFF! Deep Woods Aerosol Spray. This is perfect for people who enjoy going on hikes or camping in the woods.

I remember camping when I was younger. The bugs were horrible! They made me not want to leave the tent. They were relentless too! They wouldn’t give up and kept coming after you no matter how much you swatted at them.

One product that OFF! makes that is great for most family members is their OFF!® Clip-On™ repellent. It’s a personal mosquito repellent that doesn’t have to be applied to the skin. You simply clip it on to your belt (or another part of your clothing). It can provide you with up to 12 hours of protection. Perfect for those who want to enjoy a stay-cation reading a nice book under the sun, or for people like me who don’t like to spray stuff on their skin.

If you are planning on hosting a Labor Day backyard barbecue or pool party you might want to consider using OFF!® Bug Control Backyard Pretreat. This product can protect up to 6,000 sq. ft. of outdoor space from a whopping 110+ insects for up to eight weeks on hard, non-pourous surfaces. It also help protect trees, shrubs, ornamentals, structures and a number of vegetables from insect damage. 

If you would like to learn more about OFF! products you can visit www.Off.com. You can also check out the brand on Facebook (www.FB.com/OFF) and on Instagram, www.Instagram.com/OFFOutdoors. You can read what others are saying about being outdoors and bring protected against nasty bugs with the hashtag #TheOutdoorsMissesYou.

Share summer videos (and beyond!) with RealPlayer Cloud (giveaway ends 8/28/14)

 

Remember when video cameras looked like this?

Remember when video cameras looked like this?

I have always been fanatical about taking A LOT of pictures of my family. I want to document each and every precious memory together, most especially now that my kids are teenagers and will be off on their own in a few years. Whose to say if or when we’ll ever be able to get together often to do fun things together. Our daughter already has plans on moving our West. If she does it might be years before we’re together again. Sigh… that makes me so sad.

I’ll admit that I haven’t taken as much videos over the years as I should have. My husband used to take videos all the time of our kids when they were little. As year went by and technology improved it made it very expensive to shoot a lot of videos so we stopped doing it. I couldn’t even tell yo where are video camera is.

Thankfully our iPhones take video. Ever since we started using iPhones my entire family has taken a lot of videos.

It’s great to have the technology to take videos on your phone. But then what? Does it sit there on  your phone for only your eyes to see or do you share it with friends and family.

You can upload the videos to YouTube but not all videos are something you want the world to see. It’s not easy to email or message videos if they are too long. So what else can you do?

Introducing a smartphone application that allows you to store  your videos on your own private cloud and then watch them on other devices such as your home computer, tablet or even your television. You can even share the videos with others via text or e-mail.

Can you believe such an app is FREE?

The app is called RealPlayer Cloud.

I admit that I can be “technologically challenged” at times however RealCloud Player was quick to set up and super easy to use.

RealPlayer Cloud

To get started with RealPlayer Cloud, follow these easy steps:

Download the app for your iOS, Android, Kindle Fire and/or Windows device(s)

Sign up for your free account

You can also sign in to your account at www.real.com from any computer, smartphone, or tablet’s web browser.

To add the RealPlayer Cloud account to the Roku device visit http://www.roku.com/channels/#!details/30800/realplayer-cloud or add it from the Channel store once your Roku is hooked up to your TV.

It’s that easy!

Each free account comes with 2 GB of space. You can earn extra space when you set up other devices to your account and other tasks. You can also sign up for a premium account (Silver, Gold or Platinum) down the road if you find that you need more space.

You can shoot videos directly from the app or shoot videos as you would regularly on your device and they will automatically be picked up by RealPlayer Cloud. I am grateful that it does that because a few times I forgot to shoot the video from the app. It was OK since the app picks up videos from your device and brings them over the to app.

I like that you can organize videos too which make it easier to find a specific video you are looking for. You can set them up in categories such as vacation, parties, family member’s names, months or any other way you see fit. Right now mine are filed under Summer 2014. I plan on having a Holidays 2014 folder soon. I also have a folder for Random videos.

Now that you have a great place to store and organize you videos – how do you share them with loved ones? It’s easy!

You can watch your videos from most devices such as other phones, tablets, computers and even your television. All you need to do it log into your account and you can watch the video/videos instantly.

RealPlayer Cloud Devices

RealPlayer Cloud has SurePlay technology which converts the videos so they are easy to watch no matter what device you are watching them on. That means you can watch them full screen on your television and not an itty bitty version of it.

If you have a Roku device you can also set that up with RealPlayer Cloud and watch them form the Roku device.

You can also move videos to different devices too.

Most videos you’d love to share with others. RealPlayer Cloud makes it easy to PRIVATELY share videos with anyone. You don’t have to upload them on social media sites (such as Facebook), especially if it’s a video you want to keep private.

You can easily e-mail or text message videos to loved ones. There is no length limit either which is a nice thing since I tend to take long videos.

Your video recipient doesn’t need to have a RealPlayer Cloud account to watch the video. They simply hit the play button and the video starts playing for them. It’s so easy even those who are “technologically challenged” like me can watch videos sent to them via RealPlayer Cloud.

Of course you can still share videos on Facebook and Twitter from RealPlayer Cloud too.

I’m loving the app so far.

RealPlayer Cloud Screen Shot

The image I used (above) was taken when I first downloaded the app. Now when I open the app you can see my videos (screen shot) right from the app’s home screen. The only reason why I didn’t use a screen shot now is because my 16 year old cousin appears in the large video viewing area and I don’t like to share images of family or friends without their consent.

I’ve been able to get some great videos from our cousin’s Sweet 16 party, Roosevelt Island (NYC), the local state park and so much more. I’m looking forward to taking plenty of videos on the first day of school and the holidays. As my daughter puts it in a few weeks it will be her LAST “first day” of school because she graduates next June. Needless to say I MUST get that on video not only for us but also to share with the grandparents.

I am loving watching the videos on the television. It’s so much nicer to see them “larger” as well as allow everyone to watch all at once instead of passing the phone around.

We were using an older version of Roku but we are now using Roku 2 and the RealPlayer Cloud works perfectly with it. More on that in another post.

To learn more please visit www.Real.com. You can also find the app on Facebook and Twitter (@RealPlayer).

RealPlayer Cloud Logo

RealCloud Player would love to give a lucky reader a special prize package which includes a Roku 2, a $200 gift card so that you can take your family out some place special and capture the moments on video AND 1 year of RealCloud Player’s Premium Gold ($99 value!). Thank you RealPlayer Cloud!
