Disney Rockin Ever After, discount code and a review a great family show!


This past Thursday was a miserable day here weather wise, it was gray and snowing and that eventually turned into rain and it was just not nice. We thankfully had a great way to beat a miserable weather day and that was getting to see Disney on Ice Rockin’ Ever After, the opening night!  What a great show and a cool thing to do as a family, it’s something the whole family can enjoy and there were plenty of families at the show!
Rockin’ Ever After features Ariel, Belle, Rapunzel and Merida making her ice debut. The show is essentially the premise of the four princesses movies condensed and put on ice. Wonderful costumes, amazing skaters (not one single unintentional fall), great Disney music and some very funny moments take place in the roughly two hour show.

We had fantastic seats about 15 or so rows from the with a great view of the action and were able to see everything head on and that was great. My husband snapped loads of pictures and had a great time trying to time his pictures to the jumps of the skaters, that proved tricky because he wasn’t using a flash and our row was a pull out section of the Wells Fargo Center it was all metal and every time someone went up or down the aisle the row shook! But he still managed to take some incredible pictures.














The kid in our group (my daughter) was tickled pink to go, she loves any excuse to wear a princess dress and since Merida was new to the show she chose to wear her Merida dress. She wasn’t alone! I felt like I was in the Magic Kingdom! We were surrounded by little princesses! The show is mainly centered on the princesses but Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy are also featured as well so the Fab Five minus one (Pluto) is represented as well. I couldn’t have asked for a better thing to do on a dreary day, we watched a great show, ate expensive crab fries and didn’t have to deal with awful weather! Who could ask for anything more?  

  Tickets are now on sale for the newest Disney on Ice show, Rockin' Ever After!

Healthy Snack Idea Crispy Green






Are you looking for a way for the kids to eat healthier, or are you trying to eat healthier with the new year? Well I have a great healthy delicious suggestion for you all, Crispy Greens, here is a little more information about the company from the website:

“At Crispy Green, we believe in a simple philosophy: keep it pure, keep it tasty and keep it wholesome. This has been and will always be the guiding principle of our continuing product development.
The company was founded in August 2004 with a vision to be the leading provider of high quality, all natural snack food products desired by everyone who wants to live a healthier and better life.
During the summer of 2005, we introduced our Crispy Green® line of single ingredient products, made with real fruit, real taste, nothing else®, using the latest freeze-drying technology. Our high quality packaging and unique branding strategy had helped Crispy Green’s Crispy Fruit quickly become one of the leading premium, freeze-dried fruit snacks in the marketplace.
We’re proud to differentiate our products through quality and innovation. Over the years, we developed and introduced several new flavors to our Crispy Green line of dehydrated fruit products. In early 2009, we created Strawberry FruitziO – the first product in our new, exciting line of freeze-dried fruit snacks with just a hint of pure cane sugar.
Crispy Green is proud to be a Community Partner of the USDA Centerfor Nutrition Policy and Promotion Nutrition Communicators Network and a sponsor of Fruits &Veggies More Matter Program.


My daughter just loves fruit. I try to keep it in the house when I can, but being a working mom I do not have the time to go to the grocery store as much as I would like to.  So she does not get to eat the fruit as much and she and I would like her to. But there is another way to get great tasting fruit in the house, Crispy Greens they have a wonderful selection of freeze dried fruits that your family will eat up. As soon as the fruits arrived my daughter could not wait to try them, having your child pretty much drool over fruit is a great thing. She said she felt like she was an astronaut being about to try all of these great freeze dried fruits. Sure they are cool, and easy to travel with how do they taste?

My family was able to try a great assortment of Crispy Greens including,

Peaches, these tasted sweet and you could almost taste the juiciness of the peach. It was refreshing and delicious.  Crispy Fruit Crispy Apples, I have always been a big fan of apples, and these tasty treats do not disappoint. A great apple taste, just a different type of crunch.  Crispy Fruit Crispy Pineapples, this was my husband’s favorite, the taste was so good, it reminded me of the pineapple I had when we were at a luau, sweet and great tasting.  Crispy Fruit Crispy Asian Pears, I have never tried an actual non freeze-dried Asian pear, but the freeze dried version was very good it had a good consistency and was a sweet treat.  Crispy Fruit Crispy Bananas  my daughter simply loved these, freeze dried bananas have been a house favorite in our family for many years, this was my favorite as well.  

 Crispy Fruit Crispy Kiwi, this was my daughters most favorite, she tried them and was watching her favorite cartoon and before you knew it the bag was gone! She loved them that much,  Mangoes, and finally cantaloupe, I was not that big of a fan of the mangos and the cantaloupe the flavors were ok.. I just could not get used to the flavor. My daughter however loved all of them she happily snacked on fruit instead of junk. I could not be happier as a mom and I will be purchasing Crispy Green products again.  I will make sure to pick up some for our next Disney vacation, they will be great for the plane, and for a quick snack in the parks. So if you are looking for a healthy treat that your family will love, and you will love giving them make sure to check out Crispy Greens your family will love these freeze dried fruits, my family sure does.

GH Cretors Popped Corn Review

 Are you a popcorn lover? Well I have a great company to introduce you to, a company with a great variety of popcorn that you will just love.  GH Cretors Popped Corn, here is a little more information about the history of this great company from the website:

It all began in 1885 when Great Grandpa Cretors invented the popcorn machine and our family began perfecting the art of popping corn. His modern machine appeared at the Chicago Columbian Exposition in 1893, and for five generations we’ve been following in his corn-popping footsteps, taste-testing recipes around our kitchen table. Today we make all of our products just like Great Grandpa did. We cook all of our caramel in old fashioned copper kettles, one batch at a time. We melt real cheddar cheese to just the right temperature before pouring it on the fluffiest popcorn you’ve ever tasted! And we add our perfectly roasted nuts to our caramel recipe at just the right time to bring you the best tasting product you’ve ever had. We’ve learned a few things in five generations but what has remained the same is our dedication to a great tasting, all natural products that you can enjoy with your family the way we enjoy them with ours.


Our family loves popcorn, we snack on it as much as we can, it one of our favorite treats. They have been doing it since 1885, you know they are doing something right. This is truly gourmet popcorn. We were very fortunate to try a variety of flavors:


Caramel Nut Crunch I love the sweet and salty flavor a great combination. Have you ever had popcorn with nuts, you usually have to search hard to find the nuts… but not with this popcorn, there were plenty of nuts in this pack, I was impressed.
Kettle Corn My family loves kettle corn, we get it whenever we visit Hershey Park, they have a huge sand where they make fresh kettle corn right in front of you it is so sweet and good. The kettle corn from GH Cretors just takes me back to the fresh popcorn from the copper kettles, it is delicious.
Just the Cheese now if you are a cheese lover this is the popcorn for you, it has a great natural cheese flavor that really stands out and is very good.
My daughter's favorite was the Just the Caramel Corn the caramel was sweet and the popcorn was fresh. I loved this as well, caramel corn is one of my favorites, sweet and crunchy you can’t beat it.
Next was the  Chicago Mix, well caramel corn used to be my favorite before I tried the Chicago Mix, at first I thought the pairing of cheddar cheese popcorn and caramel popcorn was a bit odd…. But after trying this, wow, it is just amazing. The sweet the salty cheese… wow it really works wonderfully together.



So if you are looking for a great snack, after school treat or if you want a break from normal boring popcorn, please give GH Cretors Popped Corn a try, you will be glad you did.  With all of the new year’s party’s coming up, I don’t think there is a better snack to have or to bring than popcorn. Make sure to pick up a bag or two, your guests will thank you. If there are no GH Cretors Popped Corn in stores near you, you can purchase this divine popcorn on Amazon as well.

Buy it:

You can purchase GH Cretors Popped Corn in stores or on Amazon in addition to Amazon.com, GH Cretors can also be purchased on the company website: www.ghcretors.com .

Make sure to like GH Cretors Popped Corn on Facebook for more information.

 Are you looking for a great way to tote your cell phone and other little items? I would like to introduce you all to  Jamie James Collection. Here is a little information about Jamie James Collection from the website:

Their mission is to give you your world in the palm of your hand.  Jamie James Collections was started in 2011 with the purpose of providing a convenient, easy and fashionable way to unite the process of carrying a cellphone with that of carrying licenses, credit cards etc. The result is the CELLFOLIO.

Your smartphone and wallet meet to create an innovative and advanced accessory to combine all your present and future technological needs.

 

I was very fortunate to be able to review the CHARLESTON Cellfolio from the Jamie James Collection 


CELLFOLIO (noun): The convenient and stylish union of your cellphone and your portfolio of licenses, credit cards and more.




Well pockets are fine.. But some of my dresses, and pants just do not have pockets. What to do? I could carry my purse but what if I just want to carry the necessities, like my phone and some cash (yes it seems like my phone is a necessity these days) what can I do? Well I had the chance to review a very handy little item, The CHARLESTON Cellfolio. It is like a mini purse.  Ideal for holding your phone when you're going to a party, on a dinner-date, at the beach or traveling. This is a combination cellphone holder and wristlet , this is very well made with quality leather, and it is proudly made right here in the USA.  The wristlet  has great pockets that you can fill with credit cards, and id and cash. There is a handy zippered pocket that will fit a lip balm, and that is great for me… I never leave the house without my phone or my lip balm.  The strap detaches and can hold keys, and fits will on your wrist.






 If you want to have your phone on you at all time the CHARLESTON Cellfolio  is for you.  This will be wonderful for the beach, remember back in the old days when you did not need to have your phone to go the beach? Well it seems like those days are over and you need your phone always, and I will love having this pouch with me on my trip to the Jersey Shore this summer! I will surely be bringing my CHARLESTON Cellfolio with us to Disneyland on our next trip in June.  I will use this while I am at relaxing by the pool, or traveling around the park without the bulk of carrying a purse this will be great.  
This is really handy and I love it!  The CHARLESTON Cellfolio is the a great wardrobe accessory. The wristlet is made for the iPhone 4, 4S or 5. It comes in may color choices including, Charleston Black Crocodile, Charleston Blue/Green, Charleston Pink/Orange, Charleston Red, Charleston Silver. The CHARLESTON Cellfolio costs $79.00 I would recommend The CHARLESTON Cellfolio, it fit my Iphone well and I could also add my id and some cash to the pack.
