CARS 3 Review...


Disney and Pixar present CARS 3, a fast-paced new tale of Lightning McQueen, his classic CARS friends and a new spirited trainer Cruz Ramirez! Lighting finds himself pushed out of racing by a new generation of faster and younger cars and goes on a journey to discover where he belongs in this new type of high-octane competition. Available now!

Race fans of all ages are invited to ride along with the “Cars 3” crew for hilarious and heartfelt extras, including an exclusive new mini-movie, “Miss Fritter’s Racing Skoool,” taught by the queen of the Crazy 8; a feature detailing how real-world race training influenced filmmakers; the journey taken by voice actor Cristela Alonzo and team while shaping tech-savvy trainer Cruz Ramirez; behind-the-scenes access to the story team who crafted Lightning McQueen’s third chapter; deleted scenes; and much more.

Our Review:

We love all of the Cars movies so my family couldn't wait to watch this one too! Lightning McQueen is so fun to watch. We love all of the jokes about him being old. My hubby laughed when his trainer named Cruz said, "I'll call you my senor project". We loved it when Lightning McQueen and Cruz went to Thunder Hollow Speedway to race and ended up in a demolition derby that Cruz ended up winning. That was awesome!


We felt bad for Lightning when it started looking like this was going to be his last race ever and he would be forced to retire. He wanted to retire when he was ready, not because someone told him he had too. Then when he is in the Florida race he decides to let Cruz finish the race he started and gave her the courage to win. It was an amazing race and made us happy with the turn out. This is a really good movie that the whole family will love!

There are a bunch of special features too. My hubby loved the "Monster Truck Mater" because he loves watching wrestling.

Oriental Trading 2017 Christmas Review...


Thanks to Oriental Trading, my family is really excited to tell you about some of their amazing Christmas products!

Every year Christmas is a huge hit at our house! It has always been one of our very favorite holidays.

Look at this adorable book we received that came with a cute little mouse...


Miracle Mouse is a special little creature who traveled with Joseph and Mary, and was present for the miracle of Jesus' birth. This wondrous event inspired the little mouse to travel to homes near and far each Christmas to share the good news of the season.

My family loves this cute little mouse and beautiful book! This will for sure be a family favorite Christmas tradition to read together for years to come! 

Now check out this family pajama set that we sent off for our son, his wife, and our grandkids...



I was super excited to find matching Rudolph pajamas for their whole family! These adorable PJs feature Rudolph, everyone's favorite reindeer.

They look super festive and so comfy! We think it is so much fun that they even included a red nose. Our granddaughter Kaydence and grandson Kooper both really love footies so we know they will love these!

We are thrilled to add this fabulous Vintage Christmas Table Topper to our Christmas collection...


This looks so fantastic on our piano! Santa is hauling a Christmas tree and gifts with Mrs. Claus at his side! We love the cute details and can't wait for everyone to see it when they come over.

Are you planning on having a Christmas party this year? If so make sure and check out this great company! They have lots of super cool items on their site. We love that we can get everything we will need to pull off the best party of the year. They also have incredible Santa costumes and much more!


I had such a hard time deciding what to get because of all the options. Oriental Trading is really great to work with and the product ships fast right to your door.

Thank you so very much Oriental Trading for the amazing products, customer service and for donating to the Serving Others This Holiday Season project!

Hollywood Wax Museum Review & Discount...


I am super excited to tell you about all of the fun I had at the Hollywood Wax Museum!!


I have always loved wax museums since I was a little girl!

As the longest-running wax museum in the U.S., Hollywood Wax Museum is THE place to take selfies with your favorite stars. Walk the red carpet with A-listers, dance at an all-star pop concert and re-live the good times with classic entertainers.


I think Orlando Bloom is so hot in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies so I was happy to see him! 

I was thrilled to see Iron Man...


I love that a lot of the different photo ops also had props and costumes for visitors to use in their pictures!

Since I love Halloween I was excited to find Dracula...


It is cool how realistic each wax figure looks! I found it very fascinating during the part of the museum where they explain the process of making the wax figures.


Elvis Presley was for sure one of my favorites so I made sure I got a picture with him!


After I saw Michael Jackson I started dancing around as I sang some of his songs! :)

I was amazed at how many movie stars they had made of wax. I spent a long time looking at each one and taking tons of pictures with them!

You can even get a really cool picture in front of a Hollywood sign like this below...


When you purchase a photo package, supporting the preservation of this iconic landmark, you get your digital downloads FREE!

There is a fun gift shop at the end so you can pick up some fabulous souvenirs to take home with you. The employees there were so helpful and nice! I had fun talking to them!
