Inside Out in Theaters Today!

I had the privilege to see Inside Out a couple of weeks ago. 

It starts off with a short film called Lava! I have to admit that these short films that Pixar has been placing at the beginning of these new films are really cute.  This film is about of the best subjects in life... love! 

Inside Out is one of the movies that we have been patiently waiting for. I think we saw a preview last year and the kids just looked at me and gave me the "we want to see this one" look. I have to admit, I wanted to see it too. 
Have you ever wanted to know exactly what is going on in your head or better yet in the mind of other? Well Inside Out will tackle that topic. 
The stars of this movie are the main 5 emotions: Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness.  The names should say it all. Imagine these 5 emotions taking full control of 11 year old Riley. I love how they are at the "control panel" controlling everything that Riley is going through each and every day.  
Riley soon has to relocate to a new place, new school, and is out of her comfort zone making her emotions run on over drive trying to help her adjust to all the new things happening.  Joy tries to be in control and why not, she is the happiest and wants the best for Riley. Right? At the same time Sadness is trying to figure out where she belongs.


That is where the story gets a little too close to home. I don't know about you but I have a tendency to try and take control thinking that I know what is best. Joy and happiness is what I would want for my kids not thinking about the importance of all the other emotions. 

This is a must see movie for you and your family this summer. 

Avengers 2 Age of Ultron comes out today in Theaters!

I was honored to watch Avengers 2, Age of Ultron this week and I have to tell you it was exciting.

Let's face it when you have little ones any form of date night is awesome and it doesn't hurt when it is a movie that we both want to watch.  

This movie was action packed from the second it started so get there a little early so you have time to get the popcorn!  When it first started I was wondering if I missed something from one of the other movies because they were in the middle of a battle. If you haven't seen the other Avenger Movies (IronmanThorCaptain America, or Hulk) don't worry you will be fine. Marvel does a great job in letting each movie correspond with each other but if you missed one or all of them you will still understand what is going on.

I am that personality that I NEED to know what is going on and how they all became Superheroes. We know the stories of Captain America, Iron-man, Hulk and Thor but I am not sure of Black Widow and Hawkeye's life and that bugs me. I'm the gal that is waiting to see all about them. I am here to tell you that we do see a little bit into their lives and that makes me happy! You will also see some romance, not a lot but I was actually surprised and I think you will love it.

Ultron is one of those villains that you really aren't sure he is one. I just felt that he is misunderstanding things.

"You want to protect the world but you don't want it to change."

Well regardless of this, Ultron was able to have the Avengers turning against each other. Is that the way this franchise will end? At the hand of Ultron?

If you are bringing little ones and they have seen the other Marvel Superhero movies I think that this one will be fine for them. The fight scenes are not graphic, and minor bad language similar to the other Marvel movies. We loved the movie and know that our little ones will love it too. I already know one Christmas present that we will be purchasing this year.

Are you planning on seeing Avengers this week? I would love to hear what you thought!

Marvel Universe Live In Las Vegas April 23-26

It is absolutely no secret that we are Marvel Superhero fanatics. In fact our son's nursery was decorated with Spiderman. He learned to read with Comic books and he cried when Captain America The Winter Soldier was over because he wasn't ready for it to end. You can't even imagine the excitement he had when we surprised him with tickets to Marvel Universe Live!
As we entered the building you could just tell that we would be safe with all the superheroes around us. It seemed that everyone was dressed in their favorite Marvel superhero costumes. It was really cool to see not only kids but the adults dressing up too. Before you ask, no I didn't have an outfit on but I would make an awesome Black Widow. ;)

Once the show started it was non stop action, everything from fight scene, motorcycle stunts, pyrotechnics and high wire acrobatics wrapped around a great story line. Don't worry if you are not familiar with all the Marvel Characters you will be able to keep up and understand what is going on. 
Our fearless Heroes included Ironman, Wolverine, Thor, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye, Falcon, Nick Fury, Captain Marvel, Hulk, Storm, Cyclops, and Spiderman. They had to defeat 25 villains including Red skull, Madame Hydra, Dr Ock, Green Goblin, Rhyno, The Lizard, Killian, and Loki (Thor's brother). 
You could just tell that lots of thought and work went into this show, from the story line to the special effects. I was very impressed by Spiderman, he was probably my favorite. If you have watched the new Spiderman cartoons you will notice that he is always flipping and bouncing off the walls (no pun intended) and it was no different tonight. Spiderman was truly an acrobatic professional. Every time he turned around he was flipping, hanging on ropes and fighting crime. I know that sounds strange that I would be impressed by that but I think they picked the perfect person to play Spiderman.
If you are looking for a fabulous Family show that the kids are going to love, check out Marvel Universe Live at the Thomas & Mack, April 23-26.  Get 25% off tickets with this link make sure you use coupon code: MOMS. Not valid on Front Row or VIP seats.

Young Living Premium Starter Kit + $30 Freebies

I have been using Essential Oils for a while and just recently decided to jump on board with Young Living.
I am really excited at all that they have done for my family, including getting rid of my headaches. I have had headaches most of my life and no doctor has been able to figure out what they are caused from. I have for years suffered with massive pain but now with the help of Peppermint Essential oils I don't have any pain anymore. It is a bit of a miracle. I have so many other great success stories that I can't wait to share with you. 

If you’ve been wanting to get started, this is a great time to join me and get the starter kit and $30 in FREEBIES! 

Purchase a Premium Starter Kit by using the steps below and I’ll send you all of these goodies
-a spiral bound 448 page Reference Guide for Essential Oils ($16.95 value)!
-a set of Essential Oil Labels ($3.95 value) to keep your oils organized!
-a set of Quick Reference Guides ($4.95 value)!
-an Essential Oil Starter Guide!
-You’ll also get access to our incredible Facebook groups with over 20,000 members to support you as you start and continue on your oily journey!
If you are ready to buy a starter kit, then be sure to sign up as a wholesale member (with one of the premium starter kits) through the instructions below to get your freebies!

1. Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your information.

2. Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices (which is 24% more).

3. Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 2521058, that way I can send you all your FREE goodies.

4. If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number (this is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business) then you can get an EIN from the IRS in just a few seconds here and use that number instead (the IRS just needs to be able to connect some number with you for tax purposes).   They need a Social Security Number or an EIN because if you make $600 or more per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail (which is required by law). Young Living will never share this info with anyone.

5. Select which starter kit you want to get. To get the freebies, you’ll need to check the box next to the Premium Starter Kit.  You can get the kit that’s $150 or you can get the kit that’s $160 with the Bamboo Diffuser.

6. I’d recommend skipping Step 3 (Optional) part of the sign-up process. You’ll get an email with more details on that part of things after you sign up (if you’re going to be purchasing products monthly then it’s a great program that will give you credit back with each order and save you on shipping costs).

7. Go through the checkout process.

8. Be sure to send an email to to let me know that you signed up through this promotion so that I can send you your freebies!

Frequently Asked Questions: 

Does signing up make me a "distributor"?
Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.

Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month? 
There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.

If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).

Find the Perfect Bra with True&Co

If you are like me then you hate bra shopping. It's uncomfortable, they never fit right. I once bought 6 of the same bra styles because I didn't want to shop for bras any more. True&Co's changed all of that, when you log on you will have to take a quiz. Don't worry it is not scary, they just want to understand your style, size and personality. I wasn't so sure it was going to work but when I got my bras in the mail they were perfect. They were cute and the fit. That is important to me. 
Here are 4 of the newest bras on the line and a little bit about them. 

  • The Coquette Bra bra by Montelle. It's sexy, stylish, supportive, and one of True&Co.'s best selling styles. This bra is highly recommended for fuller busts.
  • Another best-seller, Feathers T-Back Bra is a gorgeous, comfortable racerback that is a must-have essential for any bra wardrobe.
  • The Across The Universe Bra bra. Fortunately you won't have to go far in order to get your very own. This essential seaport blue push-up bra has beautiful stripe details and soft slightly padded demi cups with C-curve technology that provide just the right amount of lift from the sides and below.
  • The Hidden Glamour Bra bra is the perfect t-shirt bra with lightly padded cups and lace trim that lays flat and looks smooth under thin tops and blouses.
