My family absolutely loves Gordmans!!

I am excited to tell you about some great things they have going on...

With the holidays fast approaching, Gordmans has great gift ideas for the entire family, including the pets!

I had so much fun shopping for holiday items...

When I first walked in I was excited to see some fun Star Wars items. They will make an out-of-this-galaxy gift! For both adults and kids, Star Wars is a hot gift this year. As excitement builds for the December release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, the rebooted franchise has adults feeling nostalgic and kids falling in love with The Force for the first time. Gordmans carries Star Wars décor, apparel, action figures, Legos and boom boxes.

Next, we headed over and got us some new stockings...

They have some really fancy ones to pick from!

I also got all of my Christmas cards, tags, wrapping paper and gift bags from the Holiday Home section. 

These adorable Christmas decorations will for sure light up children's faces as soon as they see them!

We also had fun picking out some new amazing luggage that we are so in love with...

Both of them are packed with all kinds of great features! One of our favorite, the spinner wheels. They make it super easy to control our bags. We are very impressed with the high quality at very reasonable prices! We can't wait to use them on our vacation!

The staff is awesome and so helpful and friendly!

PAN Blu-ray Review...

Own PAN on Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack or DVD on December 22nd or Own It Early on Digital HD on December 15!

The perfect holiday gift for the whole family!

Discover how Peter got to Neverland when “Pan” arrives onto Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. From director Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Pride & Prejudice”) comes “Pan,” a live-action feature presenting a wholly original adventure about the beginnings of the beloved characters created by J.M. Barrie.  

The film stars Oscar® nominee Hugh Jackman (“Les Misérables”) as Blackbeard; Garrett Hedlund (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) as James Hook; Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) as Tiger Lily; newcomer Levi Miller as Peter; and Amanda Seyfried (“Les Misérables”) as Mary.
Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage so long ago, and his rightful place in this magical land. Teamed with the warrior Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) and a new friend named James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.


Pan 3D Blu-Ray and Blu-ray Combo Pack contains the following special features:
  • Director’s Commentary
  • Never Grow Up: The Legend of Pan
  • The Boy Who Would Be Pan
  • The Scoundrels of Neverland
  • Wondrous Realms
Pan” Standard Definition DVD contains the following special features:
  • The Boy Who Would Be Pan
Our Review:
We have always loved Peter Pan so when this new Pan movie came out we couldn't wait to get it on Blu-ray! This is a different look at Peter Pan and how he became the hero that he is. I felt bad for the way the kids were treated in the orphanage. The nuns were mean to them and fed them slop for breakfast. It was pretty funny when Peter and his friend found all the rations of food the nuns were hiding. They were so excited and eating everything they could get there hands on. Peter first learns he can fly when he is forced to walk the plank on Blackbeard's ship. He almost falls to his death and all of a sudden he starts to fly. Everyone is amazed and that's when we find out he is the chosen one.

I felt really bad when Peter finds out his that his mom is dead. He has been waiting his whole life for her to come back to him. When he finds out she was a warrior, he decides to be brave and try to be a great warrior and leader too. In the end he defeats Blackbeard along with the help of all of the fairies in Neverland. We loved the part when Blackbeard's wig falls off. The look on his face was so funny. We thought it was pretty cool at the end of the movie when Peter goes back to the orphanage, gets all of the boys and loads them on to his ship. They are all happy and have a blast. We really liked this movie! It's great for all ages.

There are plenty of special features too. There's Never grow up: the Legend of Pan. It tells the story about how Peter Pan got started from a play to the big screen. Also don't miss The boy who would be Peter Pan and plenty more.

Hammacher Schlemmer Queen's Guard Review...

Looking for the perfect Christmas gift? Well look no further, Hammacher Schlemmer has tons of perfect gifts! Click on the boxes below to see a few great ideas...

Now I am super excited to tell you about the 6' Prelit Christmas Queen's Guard that my family received!!

I fell in love with this the second I saw it! We are impressed with how fast it came and was packaged well.

My hubby couldn't believe how easy this was to set up. All he had to do is take it out of the box and screw a few pieces together. It turned out perfect!

The whole thing from the guard to the house, is built with good quality steel. It stands tall and firm and won't tip over when the wind blows. The lights are already built in so all you have to do is add a few batteries and turn it on.

Our granddaughter Kaydence loves it too! She got so excited when she saw it and had a big smile...

It lights up and looks so cool on our front porch...

This is the festive prelit soldier who keeps watch over a home’s holiday spirit like The Queen’s Guard outside Buckingham Palace. The Christmas guardsman stands within a 6'-high sentry post, sporting a tall bearskin cap and a poinsettia-red tunic, much like the uniform of Her Majesty’s royal regiment, with shoulders (and epaulettes) straight, hands at his sides, and a cheery smile that welcomes the merry and brightens the mood of the most stubborn humbug.

Forged from powder-coated steel that withstands the elements to ensure years of seasonal outdoor display, both the soldier and his post are prelit with 57 mini lights that help illuminate his view and add festive decor to doorways, landings, or porches with either steady or flashing settings using the built-in timer that turns the lights on for six hours and off for 18 hours. 

We love that it uses three AA batteries so we don't have to worry about people tripping over a plug, or having to unplug it every night. We are getting lots of compliments from our neighbors on our new stunning Queen's Guard! 

Hammacher Schlemmer has tons of fun, high quality gift ideas so make sure and visit them to see more! They are also on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest!

Another awesome thing about this company is their unconditional and unwavering promise that their merchandise is guaranteed for life! Click on the box below to read more about it!

Thank you very much Hammacher Schlemmer for the AMAZING products and customer service!

Angels Sing DVD Review...

AngelsSingis an uplifting holiday movie, which shares how important it is to build meaningful memories with your friends and and family around the holidays!

As a child, Micheal Walker wished every day could be Christmas, That is, until a tragic accident crushed his holiday spirit. Thirty years later, Michael still can't muster any joy for the holidays, despite encouragement from his playful wife and well-intentioned parents. But when his young son faces a tragedy, Michael needs to make amends with his past. A Mysterious man named Nick gives Michael a gift and instills in him the the courage to find the joy that he lost.

Our Review:

We really liked this movie! I thought Connie Britton and Harry Connick Jr. did a great job as Susan and Michael Walker. We felt bad that Michael didn't like Christmas. Then when he explained to his son why he didn't like Christmas, it all made sense. It was sad to see what happened to Michael's dad and son but that's what Michael needed to get him to start liking Christmas again. We loved Willie Nelson playing Nick. He sells his house to Michael really cheap with one condition, he must keep up the neighborhood traditions. Which include decorating his house for Christmas. We thought it was pretty funny that all the neighbors kept ringing Michael's door bell, singing to his family and giving them lights to hang up. It was such a good feeling to see Michael and his son plug the lights in together and light up their house. All the neighbors came to see what a spectacular sight it was. This is a great family movie for the holidays!
