Are you as excited as we are about the release of The Amazing Spider-man on DVD November 9? I hope you remember a few weeks back I introduced you to Vudu.com. I told you how you could use Vudu.com to see The Amazing Spider-man before it is released on DVD.  This was my first time using Vudu and Pre-Purchasing a movie from Wal-Mart so I was really anxious to see how it would go. I entered my promo code and we watched the featurettes that were immediately available! YEAH! They were so much fun! Then we had to sit back and wait.October...

Image credit: Wikipedia The leaves are turning colors, the geese are flying south, and there is a briskness in the air that can only mean fall has arrived. There are lots of things to do during the fall, but, if you are like millions of other Americans, your wallet is empty or close to it. The “back to school” season is always a costly one, and if you’re self-employed, you just paid your quarterly estimated taxes.  Here is a short list of some fun things to do that should barely dent your paycheck.

The kids have been sick this last week. We have been stuck inside this house and on a medicine schedule. So I wanted this week’s family night to be awesome and allow us to get OUT of the house! As always I had to come up with a cheap family night idea. So I decided we would have an Avengers Adventure this week!  I am sure you have heard of The Avengers either through the Marvel comics or Super hero movies. Did you realize that the latest movie was released this week? Oh yes! My husband has been counting down the days since we...

This weekend I had the pleasure of putting together a birthday party for my brother and my sister in law. They are amazing people and deserved an awesome party. Something beyond party pats and streamers. With money tight and time and energy even tighter I had to come up with something new and extraordinary. And I did…well I think it was awesome! I had to share this with you. This ice cream theme party is something that you can include the kids in! In fact the adorable ice cream cake was done with the help and design of my niece!...

1. Get there early! This is #1 because it was the biggest tip I have for you! Arrive at the park about 45 minutes before it opens. They will start taking tickets and passes about 20 minutes before the park opens so you have time to walk to Aquatica and put on sunscreen before they open. Best of all we were at the front of the lines and that meant very little waiting! Not only do you get in early but you get to enjoy the park before everyone arrives. We arrived before it opened and it did not fill up until 2 hours after opening. This meant...

If you are like us summer time means lots of barbeque! We grill as often as we can. It is great for celebrations bu also for family dinners. Oh my mouth waters at the thought! The fourth of July was no different. I had a special request this year for RIBS! I had been reading all the excitment about the Dibs on my Ribs contest and it had me drooling over the pictures and recipes of ribs. My husband was awesome and agreed. It was a pretty easy sell since he loves ribs. We gathered all of our grilling supplies and goodies and worked up a...
