A NEW STAR WARS STORY BEGINS The adventure-filled past of the iconic scoundrel and everyone’s favorite Wookiee is going before cameras this month when principal photography on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story officially began February 20th at Pinewood Studios, London.  The movie will explore the duo’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directors co-piloting the movie, with a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. “Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous,” Lord and Miller said. “We can’t think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky.” Written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, it will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, Simon Emanuel and co-produced by Kiri Hart, Susan Towner and Will Allegra. Lawrence Kasdan and Jason McGatlin will executive produce. Crewing the ship…

Luvs, the Official Diaper of Experienced Moms #SharetheLuv
Coupon Sites , kids , Reviews / February 21, 2017

I love Luvs.  It’s the best diaper.  I’ve never experienced leaks, with Luvs, even through trying nights.  Luvs is my go to brand, all the time. Luvs is the brand I also buy for new moms.  When I’m buying a baby gift, I always pick up a pack of Luvs, and hand them over.  And, I do explain that “Luvs is the best brand out there”.  The moms always come back to me and say “thank you, the diapers were great.” The Night Lock is another added bonus with Luvs.  The Night Lock is something that is added, to make sure your baby doesn’t leak.  Softer and more absorbent than ever before, with large stretch tabs for easy fastening, ultra-leakage protection and a money-back guarantee, Luvs Ultra Leakguards with NightLock Plus™ provide the high-quality features babies and parents need for less cost than the premium brands. You can buy a nice, big box of Luvs, or you can try them out, with their smaller packages.  Either way, you will want to use this coupon, for $1.00 off, of the pack you choose.  Only thing it won’t work on is travel, trial size. “What?  Luvs and a coupon, this must be my lucky day,”…

ToiletTree For Your Child’s Next Toothbrush
2017 Valentine's Day Gift Guide , kids , Reviews / February 13, 2017

I love ToiletTree Products, and this time is no different.  My son, age 5, even loves it.  He says his teeth feel so clean after brushing with the ToiletTree Poseidon Children’s Sonic LED Toothbrush.  He says his teeth have never felt cleaner.  It’s battery operated, so it really cleans those teeth, even if he isn’t moving it all around. It’s so cool the way it glows, not that we brush our teeth in the dark, but it’s still neat. You can also get the toothbrush in either pink or blue, so it’s great for boys and girls.  I chose blue, because of course, I have a son. The Poseidon Children’s Sonic toothbrush features a brush head that lights up with a rainbow of bright LED colors during the 2-minute brushing cycle that will make brushing fun! High quality DuPont bristles and 16,000 pulses per minute will help keep your child’s teeth clean and healthy. Battery included! Your child will love the Poseidon Toothbrush as much as mine does.  It’s so great to have a toothbrush, that stays lit, so Jacob knows how long to brush.  And, now he doesn’t give me a hard time about brushing, either.  There are different colored lights…

Kohl’s Cares for Valentine’s Day & Every Other Day, Too
2017 Valentine's Day Gift Guide , kids , Reviews / February 13, 2017

Kohl’s is a great place to shop for gifts for kids.  I was able to score my son a Dr. Seuss book, and a stuffed animal Moose inexpensively.  He loves the moose, he takes it everywhere.  So soft, and cuddly.  The book, he’s only 5, and learning how to read, but he’s doing a good job of practicing on Thidwick The Big Hearted Moose.  This Dr. Seuss book is great, and I can’t wait to share it with his sister.  She will be able to read it to him, as she is a college student. This book, along with the others, listed above, are a part of the Kohl’s Cares initiative.  Kohl’s is offering children’s books from renowned author/illustrator Dr. Seuss and toys priced at just $5 each, with 100 percent of net profit benefiting children’s initiatives nationwide.  So, you should really go out and get a book, stuffed animal, or both.  Your child(ren) will love you for it, even more than they already do. Take a look at this link, to see what you can score for $5, from Kohl’s Cares. Thidwick The Big Hearted Moose has become my favorite Dr. Seuss book, since receiving it.  We read it every…

Honeywell HeatGenius Ceramic Heater is amazing. We are remodeling, so the front of our home is very cold.  We put on an addition, that is not yet insulated.  So, I put my Honeywell HeatGenius Ceramic Heater, where it’s cold, and wala, the room is as warm as the rest of the house.  There’s a cool touch handle, and housing, so I don’t have to worry about my 5 year old getting burnt.  It’s so sweet to finally be able to warm up this one room.  It’s only one room, but it’s the living room, so you know it’s decent sized.  Honeywell has just made my life a lot easier.
