Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Best Friends Blu-ray Giveaway

Disclosure: No formal compensation was received for this post. Giveaway product will be provided by The Fox Home Insiders Team


Strawberry Shortcake is back in a all new movie with all her best friends including Cheery Jam.

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!

We absolutely love Strawberry Shortcake, she has always been one of our favorite characters. She is kind and loving to friends and animals.

You can enjoy a printable coloring page of your very best friends.

I Miss All those Special Photos #Camera

We went on vacation last month, our first in 7 years. When we were in the middle of enjoying the Buffalo Zoo, my camera battery died and then the lens wouldn’t close. After I changed the battery, the lens closed and wouldn’t open again. Just makes a clicking noise. I have tried troubleshooting everything. The only way I have been able to get it to work is by using a piece of tape to open the lens.
It’s becoming a pain to do that constantly though, so my only camera I have now is my iPad. Since I don’t want to drag that everywhere with me, I am missing out on so many good pictures and memories.
That is the big reason my personal posts have been short as of late. I am saving up and my next goal is to buy a camera. Doesn’t have to be big and fancy, although I would love a DSLR. Anything will do right now, although I have been through 3 cameras so maybe zooming lenses are not for me.

I am really missing these special photos.



Any suggestions on a good camera? What brand do you have?

Hormel Is Adding Muscle Milk To It’s Line Of Products #HormelFamily

Hormel’s Line of products is expanding with the new addition of Muscle Milk.


Muscle Milk ready-to-drink is a protein-enhanced functional beverage that helps promotes workout recovery, lean muscle growth and sustained energy. Muscle Milk takes the guesswork out of high performance nutrition, delivering a unique blend of premium proteins, complex carbohydrates, functional fats, vitamins and minerals. CytoSport, the maker of Muscle Milk, is one of the largest sport nutrition companies in the United States and offers a complete line of protein-enhanced powders, shakes and bars.

Muscle Milk is dedicated to helping athletes recover and rebuild muscle, helping them prepare for the next challenge.


I was sent a individual size muscle milk cookies and cream flavor. I have never tried them and was a bit skeptical. It is actually very tasty. Very similar to a milk shake with a bit more of a chocolate/carmel flavoring. I let my kids try it and they even loved it.

To find more on Muscle Milk and varieties please visit Hormel Foods.

I was recently able to try SunRidge Farms Organic and Natural snacks.


SunRidge Farms products are manufactured in Royal Oaks, CA. and the distribution facility is powered by 2500 solar panels, eliminating 1,315,000 pounds of CO² annually (equivalent to planting 1800 acres of trees).  SunRidge Farms has worked diligently over the past 30 years to become a Certified Green Business by the Monterey County Green Business Program.

I love how this company is doing everything right to help the environment and the snacks are so delicious.  The varieties are……

  • All Natural Hit The Trail Mix
  • Organic Sunny Bears
  • Organic Deluxe Trail Mix
  • All natural Milk Chocolate Rainbow Drops
  • All Natural Dried Cranberries



The trail mixes I have been packing in my husbands lunch he loves them. The Sunny Organic bears are similar to gummy bears, but come with sugar on them and are so so good. They are my fav.   The dried cranberries are the perfect take along for lunch as I love putting them on my salads, it makes the perfect topping.

Big Fish Games announces Gummy Drop And A Contest Announcement

Disclosure: This is a compensated post. All opinions are 100% my own.

Big Fish games has launched it’s newest game Gummy Drop.


Gummy Drop is a unique mobile game offering players more than just matching by combining the Match-3 and resource management mechanics. In order to rebuild famous landmarks across the globe, players much match gummies in groups of 3 or more to collect building resources. Each landmark may require more than one building resource and, unlike most other Match-3 games where you simply move on from level-to-level, Gummy Drop allows players to replay completed levels to collect special additional building resources. Gummy Drop is a unique, highly repayable game releasing with hundreds of levels and new levels being added each month.



My kids love to unwind before bed and play games, but lately have been finding a lot of games difficult to get through the levels. We just downloaded Gummy Drop and my 6 year old is already o level 7. He is loving this game and finding it so easy to play, he won’t even let me help him.

Here is a quick video of how the game works
