It’s so hard to think that it has actually been 25 years since this first movie was released, makes me feel a bit old. These were my favorite movies when I was younger. I didn’t even really know that there was a Home Alone 3 or 4. I am super excited to be able to sit down and enjoy these holiday classics with my kids.

Back To School: HP Envy 5540 Review and HP Instant Ink

Disclosure: A product was provided as well as a gift card to try HP Instant Ink. All opinions are 100% my own.

School is back in session full time now, and one thing I have realized is most homework is based online. Even my 2nd grader is coming home with projects where he needs to do research on the computer and print pictures or assignments out. We just had a older printer and the pictures were not good quality at all, and it was really slow.

Just in the knick of time we received the new HP Envy 5540 to review. My daughter has a big family project due soon, and needs tons of pictures as well as write a summary about them.

Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 11.51.54 AM

The Hp Envy 5540 is a wireless all in one sprinter. It prints, scans, copies, and you can print from anything including tablets and phones. I wanted to test it out so I downloaded the HP MyPrintly app and the pictures came out great, looks as if they had been professional.


The Printer aso prints incredibly fast with up to 12 pages per minute for black ink and 8 pages for colored ink.   HP Envy 5540 also offers double side printing and helps you save not only on ink but paper as well.


I love being able to print from anywhere inside my house, and from any device. I also love the the HP Envy 5540 has a automatic deploy output tray, whenever my printer gets a job. I don’t have to worry about pictures or documents printing and falling to the floor.

Hp is introducing a new way to save on ink, with HP Instant Ink for newer printers. You just sign up online and for as low as $2.99 a shipment you can have ink delivered to your home.

HP Instant Ink is delivered when your printer lets the home network know you are low on ink. You also get 3 months free.

I signed up for the HP Instant Ink service and within 2 weeks I received my first replacement cartridges. It was a little off to me because according to my printer I still had plenty of ink left. It saves me from having to go to the store though, or worry about if I have twenty dollars to go buy new cartridges in store.

The Mutts Diaries Comic Book Giveaway

The treasured characters in the MUTTS comics have a special charm to kids and adults of all ages. The friendship, warmth, and humor between characters that are seemingly unlikely matches create a special dynamic that will warm your heart. The graphic novel style collection of the MUTTS diaries introduces some of the cast members through a variety of their most popular comic strips.
With winter on the way, there could not have been a better time to open up this book, so I was very excited to get my hands on a copy of The Mutts Winter Diaries, the second Mutts collection for kids! If you are a fan of MUTTS, you will love this collection. It, of course, has all of our favorite characters – Shtinky Puddin’, Sourpuss, Guard Dog, Bip and Bop, and even Crabby. The strips that McDonnell uses for this collection are quirky and thought provoking, perfect for inspiring children to care for animals and their environment.

Patrick McDonnell created the comic strip MUTTS, which now appears in over 700 newspapers in 20 countries. MUTTS has been described by Peanuts creator Charles Schulz as “One of the best comic strips of all time.” McDonnell has received numerous awards for this strip, including the National Cartoonists Society’s highest honor, The Reuben, for Cartoonist of the Year.
MUTTS also won awards for its environmental and animal advocacy: two Genesis Awards from The Ark Trust, The HSUS Hollywood Genesis Award for Ongoing Commitment, the PETA Humanitarian Award, and a Sierra Club award, all for good reason. We love the awareness the author brings to shelter animals and animals that are tied up outdoors. It is such a great life lesson and the MUTTS diaries make it an easy transition into teaching our kids about how to treat animals.
McDonnell’s website, MUTTScomics.com, promotes his animal- and earth-friendly philosophy. Consistent with McDonnell’s concern for the environment, all of the MUTTS books are printed on recycled paper. So not only do you get a great, heart-warming book, but you get to feel great about it too!
To coincide with the release of the new book, The Mutts Winter Diaries, Richard Leeds International has designed a cozy nightshirt to give you the sweetest of dreams.
We think that you will love The Mutts Winter Diaries as much as we did, and we want to give you a chance to get your very own copy of the book, as well as a special Comics sleep shirt.

The Lunar Eclipse and Blood Moon 2015

We stayed up late waiting for the Eclipse and Blood Moon last night. It was amazing as it started. I wanted to take pics of everything I could when the Eclipse started, unfortunately my camera started acting up.
I did get some good pics though.


Before the Eclipse the moon was beautiful, not as big as I though but I live in a city so thats to be expected.


The Eclipse starting


Getting into it, my kids said it looked like someone was coloring on the moon with a black marker.


Almost full


Full Eclipse and you can barely even see any part of the moon.


This was the only pic I could get of the moon red. My kids found it fascinating, but also kind of scary.

Did you watch the Eclipse last night. Learn more about this rare occurrence here.

Back To School with Hormel Party Trays #HormelFamily

Disclosure: I’ve partnered with Hormel Foods as part of the Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger Program. Throughout the year I’ll be receiving product, coupons, giveaways and promotions. However, no payment was given or expected for posting about the program, and as always, all opinions given here are fully my own.

We are finally into a schedule with back to school. It took a while, as its a new area and new school, so took a while. We are mixing between the kids eating at school and packing lunches.

To start the school year off I wanted to get the kids something special to pack in their lunch. It may seem a bit odd, but my kids love Cheese and crackers, pepperoni and cheese with crackers etc. I bought a Hormel Family Party Tray to celebrate back to school. I originally bought it as snack at home after school, but the kids ripped right into to it and used it for their lunches.


Packing everything they could between the cheese, crackers, salami, and pepperoni. The entire party tray was gone in 2 days just from them using it for packing lunches.

We have always loved Hormel party trays, they are the perfect fr snacking, parties, or any occasion. Party trays come with a variety of cheeses, crackers, salami and thick pepperoni. They are so delicious.

Have you ever tried a Hormel Party Tray?

Getting Ready For Halloween 2015 with a Steampunk Costume

Disclosure: No formal compensation was received for this post. A product was provided for review.

Halloween is a little over a month away and my kids are so excited they are already picking out their costumes. They have picked out a Fireman, football player and a Steampunk.

Screen Shot 2015-09-21 at 1.27.34 PM

New for Halloween 2015 is the Steampunk costume for girls. The costume features a dress which is different shades of brown, and is covered in velvety material on the sides and on top, extending into a high collar with a ruffled neckline. A striped panel with three buckle adornments is in the center of the torso. The reddish brown skirt has a white band along the hem with an attached black petticoat underneath. Two belts, similar to those on the top, dangle from the waistline of the dress over the skirt.
Costume also includes matching glovettes and a matching hat with goggles, to give the costume the perfect touch.



My daughter fell in love with this dress, she wanted to be a mad scientist but we couldn’t find anything girly enough and this costume is perfect. It has the scientist look but with a victorian feel and beautiful. She said she feels like the Mad Hatter, a princess and scientist all wrapped into one in this costume.

In case you are wondering what exactly a Steampunk is, it’s a genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology. It also can refer to a Victorian style era.

This costume also comes in various styles for woman in addition to the girls costume.
