MONSTERS UNIVERSITY - Back in Theatres for Labor Day Weekend


 When  I was in LA I got to see Monsters University at the El Capitan, what a great place to see a movie. It is more than just a movie it is an event! My family and I loved this movie, if you ever wondered how Mile and Sulley met, well you will find out in this fun movie! My daughter loved this movie so much we just might be seeing it again this Labor day weekend!
  
Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer.  The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.


MONSTERS UNIVERSITY is now playing in theaters everywhere!

I would like to introduce you all to a great new doll company called Zeenie Dollz! Here is a little more information about these cool, fun new dolls from the website:


Meet the Zelfs a new line of whimsical and quirky collectible dolls. #Giveaway

 Are you looking for a cute new toy for the special little girl in your life? I would like to introduce you all to a new line of whimsical and quirky collectible dolls, The Zelfs. Here is a little more information about The Zelfs from the website: 

Introducing The Zelfs! When the twilight moon rises in the sky, these fun, playful, quirky creatures from Zardenia appear. . . Love your Zelf and they’ll share their special powers. Each Zelf is totally unique and has a special power that only shines when they are loved.  Meet the Zelfs, play oh-so-fun games and download activities galore at the official website. 
www.thezelfs.com This is a new line of whimsical and quirky collectible dolls. The Zelfs come from the garden of Zardenia and each has a power represented by a Zelfmark, colorful spike-tacular and style-able hair, pose-able arms and legs and matching charms and hair accessories that girls can use to style and tame their Zelf’s crazy hair. Available to collect in three sizes – small, medium and large – there are more than 12 Zelf characters, including the ultra-rare Miss Clover!



My daughter was very fortunate to be able to check out a special Zelf, and the Zelfs Spin Salon.



When I told my daughter she would be able to check out a new Zelf and the salon, she was so excited! She squealed, I have always wanted a Zelf! I was not familiar with Zelf’s but I take it my daughter was familiar with these cute toys. She said that she saw commercials, and thought they were so cute and really wanted to check them out. Kids know so much more about toys than adults, don’t they?   
My daughter’s special Zelf name is Elfa, Meet Elfa! This playful prankster is always skippin her garden chores.  Instead of pulling weeds, she’s focused on misdeeds! Each style of Zelf has a unique personality and power mark and comes with hair-riffic styling accessories and comb to keep those wayward locks in line plus a charm that can be worn by the Zelf or yourzelf! Also comes complete with their own biography and storytelling themes. 
 My daughter loved playing with the Zelf’s hair, she came up with so many cute styles. You could braid the hair spike the hair, do just about any style you would like. Each Zelf comes with pink bands to make styling easier. Each doll also comes with a comb, and cute charm.  I love that each Zelf has their own personality and story. The Zelfs Spin Salon is a great accessory for your little Zelfs! Who doesn’t love a relaxing trip to the salon?? I am sure each of the little Zelfs would love to get there hair done at this Venus flytrap salon.
The salon spins the hair and comes with a cool Zelf too!  And of course there are some great accessories to create some awesome Zelf hair styles for all of you little Zelf friends.  She was so happy with these great toys, and have been playing with her Zelfs and Salon nonstop, It seems.  My daughter is already asking for more Zelfs for her birthday. Well I know what I will be getting her this year.  Now I know we will be on the hunt for the ultra-rare Miss Clover! Part of the fun is the hunt, we will keep on the lookout. I am sure Miss Clover is out there somewhere!
Make sure to check out there commercial, to see how cute they are:




The Zelf costs average $6.99 to for a small Zelf.  And $24.99 for the styling salon. If you are looking for a cute toy that your little girl would love to collect, the Zelfs are the toy you have been looking for.  I would say the age range for these toys are about 4-10 years.  But they are so cute, that I am sure all kids, even big kids (like me) would love them too. These little critters are adorable, and fun to play with.

The generous folks at Moose Toys, are giving one of Susan’s Disney Family readers a chance to win a Zelfs Spin Salon! Would you like to win?

Boogie Wipes, saline nose wipes that your kids will love!



I love getting boxes in the mail, sometimes at my house it may seem like Christmas morning, and at times it looks like I have a part time job at the post office (we do get quite a few boxes) but I love my job, and love the mail. Sometimes I get a surprise box in the mail, and we got a surprise last week in the mail. A cute box tied with a lovely blue bow, and filled with great new Boogie Wipes products.  I had forgotten that I had signed up to be a Boogie Wipes ambassador Blogger, and I did not even know that I was selected, so surprise I was selected.  I love surprises, and this was a nice surprise!


Covered Perfectly, tops that accentuate your best features and hide your flaws.



Are you looking for tops that accentuate your good parts, and hide troublesome parts like your tummy? Well I came across a great site that only carries shirts that are built to make you look your best. I would like to introduce you all to,  Pauline Durbin she is the owner of a company called Covered Perfectly here is a little more information about Pauline, and her company Covered Perfectly from the website:

You know that feeling when you are going through your closet, trying desperately to find something to wear? That was me and I was becoming more and more frustrated.  The sleeves on my tops were too short to cover that part of my arms that I would rather not reveal. Of the few tops that did cover my arms, the body wasn’t long enough to cover my tummy! Talking to friends, it was obvious that I wasn’t the only one with this challenge. They were having the exact same issues. I asked myself, “wouldn’t it be wonderful to find the perfect ladies tops all in one place?  No more hunting for just the right style?” What a concept! That day in May of 2012 an idea was born.

There are dolls and then there are dolls that are more heirloom dolls, a doll that you’d want to not only play with but make sure you keep and hand it down to generations that follow. AmericanGirl dolls  aren’t just your typical dolls, they’re so much more. When I was a little girl I remember looking through American Girl magazines. I was so fascinated with the little girls with the great stories and lives you could peek into with these dolls.

 From the great clothing to the amazing accessories. I always loved checking into the back of the book to look at the Bitty Baby’s they were always adorable. I so wanted a Bitty Baby of my own, a baby that would look like me, a baby I could care for and love. Back then, the selection of Bitty babies were not as vast as the selection is now. 
Now there are 11 options with lots of combinations of light and dark skin and eyes. Having such a great selection would make it easier to get a baby that looks just like your little one.  With the new Bitty babies you can pick skin tone, eye color, and hair color to truly customize your child’s Bitty Baby experience.

The new Bitty Baby collection will include 5 hardcover books: Bitty Baby and Me, Bitty Baby at the Ballet, Bitty Baby Loves the Show, Bitty Baby the Brave, and Princess Bitty Baby.  The books are written by Pacific Northwest author and Newberry Awardee, Kirby Larson, and illustrated by award winning illustrator Sue Cornelison.  

In addition to great story that little girls will love, each book will include a parents’ section this section will help break down the lessons of the book. What a wonderful idea!

My daughter loved sharing this book with her American Girl doll Saige, and she loved sharing the story with her little cousin. He cousin Mary is 3.5 years old and she was fascinated with the cute little story. She wanted my daughter to read it to her again and again.  The book had a great story and wonderful illustrations.


The Bitty Baby dolls can be bought in  several different ways. You can purchase the Doll & Book for $55.00  The Doll, and Book and Accessories for $125.00.  Or you could purchase the book alone for $14.98. I know what will be on my daughters Christmas gift list this year, I am sure a Bitty Baby and some accessories to take care of this special doll will be on the wish list this year.

Farm rich.
 Farm Rich has been around for over 25 years, and I have tried the cheese sticks but never got the chance to tr all of the other snacks, I just never tried them. Why I don’t know, perhaps I just missed them in the supermarket. But I have heard good things about the products. And I was offered a chance to try Farm Rich. We had the chance to try Farm Rich  Dill Pickle Chips my family are big fried pickle fans.
 I became a fan of pickle chips while on the road for a conference for work, it was years ago we visited Muncie Indiana and I had the chance to try my first pickle chip. At first the thought of it was a little odd... a warm pickle? Aren't pickles supposed to be cold? 
Well I figured I would try it, and I loved it so much I asked to wrap a few up for my husband so he could try these yummy treats! So after this we were all hooked on pickle chips. Would the Farm Rich pickles measure up? Well the pickles were delicious, they were tangy just like a great dill pickle. The breading was flavorful, no greasy and just a great snack, or side dish. 
My daughter just love the crunchy pickle chips, and asked if we could try the pizza ones next.  My husband was also a big fan, he said the pickle was just salty enough and very tasty. Farm Rich makes all kind of snacks from Philly cheese steaks (can’t wait to try those) to Meatballs. 

They also have, Toasted Ravioli this makes a quick and easy family dinner – perfectly crispy and golden brown, with melted Mozzarella, Parmesan, Asiago and Romano cheeses inside. And Chili Cheese Bites bring flavor in every bite, with smooth cheddar cheese and mild chili sauce in a crispy corn chip coating.
Well we will be purchasing from Farm Rich again in the future, and I recommend them they are wholesome easy to prepare snacks that your family will love.
