    Loot Crate continues to come up with fun and innovative crates filled with awesomely fun swag and incredibly detailed and fun crates. This month I receive my Loot Crate (which I have sent to me gratis as a reviewer – opinions as always are 100% my own) a few days ago but hadn’t had the chance to open it, yet. I opened it today and was thrilled at what I found inside. There were items from some of my favorite things like Game of Thrones, Princess Bride and Harry Potter. There were also some great D&D things and I am finding myself pulled toward learning how to play. Read on to find out what was in the crate. read more!

  • Monkey Kingdom

    While it is too late to have your Monkey Kingdom ticket purchase help Conservation International you can still help out on your own. When I was on my trip to see Monkey Kingdom a few weeks back I received a plush Maya monkey. Well, this monkey can be purchased along with other Monkey Kingdom products through the Disney Store Online. Check out the Monkey Kingdom items available for purchase through There you can buy plushes of Maya and her son Kip and $1 from each purchase goes to Conservation International from 3/13/15 – 5/14/15. We didn’t get a chance to take the kids to see the movie until today so maybe I should pick up a Kip plush for them to play with alongside their Maya plush.

    If you haven’t seen the movie yet, check out the clips below. read more!

    April vacation went by rather quickly and we were exhausted by the very end. The kids were going to have a playdate which had already been rescheduled and it got cancelled. So, we had some time and decided to take the kids to see Monkey Kingdom. I knew that they would enjoy it and find it cute and funny. Eva loved it and Andrew went and fell asleep after 30 minutes. He was so funny because he was falling asleep and still trying to eat his popcorn. At one point we thought that he was totally out and then he popped back up and took another handful of popcorn. He is such a kindhearted little guy. He offered me a big handful of popcorn from his bag even though I was sitting next to him with a large bag of my own. read more!

    The movie MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015. I personally have already seen the movie which I’ve been blogging about. I was able to meet most of the cast and I had a great time. I’m loving all of the movie tie-ins that I have been seeing from so many different companies. I went to Walmart and picked up some Avengers toys, food and drinks. There is even Avengers cereal from Kelloggs. I got a ton of great stuff. There are a ton of great Avengers toys on display at Walmart. The ones that I went to had really nice displays and so many toys to choose from. I was looking for toys for me so I found some things to display at home like Funko Pop figures and some to display at work like the 2.5 inch figures.

    While at Walmart and at home I used the Super Heroes Assemble app. This app was fun to unlock cool features while in the store and also at home. Below I’m going to show you the things I found at the store and also how to use the new app which can be downloaded at the Walmart Avengers website. read more!

    We spent the day getting the house ready for company tonight. We were hosting the Marriage Prep Team from church and so we had a lot to get ready. Cleaning, errands and more. I didn’t get out to take any photos at all and when I did go out it was for some ice and soda. I checked first at Big Lots for some sort of cooler and I took a quick detour through the toy aisle to discover that some of the Super Hero Mashers were at Big Lots and had been priced at $5. I picked up Captain America because that is one character that we don’t have and the kids enjoy creating new characters. I may have to pick up a few more while they are still there.
