Monster Jam is big fun for the whole family! The new 2015 show is packed with bigger jumps and more surprised than ever before!
The kids have seen Monster Trucks before but never like this. From start to finish their eyes were glued but not so much their bottoms. My son kept jumping up to cheer, adding his own Oooooos and roars to the show! I really enjoyed seeing the new trucks and of course an old favorite Grave Digger.
New for 2015, the Monster Jam show includes a new track and some special events. We watched as the Monsters competed in a Wheelie, Obstacle Course, Doughnut, and Freestyle Competitions. There was also Quad Wars, team Washington vs team Philadelphia, and a few other special events I will let you be surprised about!
Monster Jam is not just for boys, the Princess had fun too. She was scoring each truck using her own criteria. If it was up to her the Crustacean would have won the whole thing. For my husband and I it was fun to relive childhood memories of listening to the roar of Monster Trucks with the kids.
Remember to bring protection for little one’s ears as well as your own if you have sensitive ears like mine. Don’t worry if you forget, you can buy really cool monster tire looking headphones at the show.
The calm before the Monster storm!
The Princess really liked the Crustacean Truck. It is the most unique Monster Truck design I have ever seen.
Intently watching the start of Quad Wars. She really liked that there was a girl racer. Even if the girl wasn’t on team Washington she still kicked some!
The Pirate made his own roars and sound effects. I call this pic Woooooooooooo!

Strange Magic is a refreshing and fun new family film from George Lucas, yes that George Lucas! Journey to a musical world filled with fairies, goblins, elves and imps, inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Join in all their misadventures as they battle each other over a powerful potion. Enter into their magical forest and learn how we should not judge someone by the way he or she looks. The inside is what matters and why we all deserve to be loved.
The film takes you into the a land that looks as if you could walk outside and right into it. Yet it still holds us in the realm of fantasy and wonder. I wouldn’t expect anything less from the mastermind behind Star Wars.
“I wanted to do something fun and happy yet unexpected,” says executive producer George Lucas. “It’s a story about love and how the most unlikely people fall in love. It’s about finding true beauty in someone’s soul regardless of how they look.”

Strange Magic is in theaters January 23, 2015!
No matter how well I am doing, there is always one area I really struggle with. Vegetables. I could place the blame in all sorts of places but the truth is I just have never liked the taste of green. Broccoli, green beans, and lima beans bring them on. Romaine lettuce or iceberg yes please. But do not come at me with anything resembling a leaf off the trees outside. That is why I just smile and nod when I see all these great green smoothies people make and rave about. Not for me. If it tastes green then count me out.
Recently I connected with Mercola who sent me some of their good-for-you products, including a supplement that will help get all that green goodness into your body. I was cautiously optimistic, it sounds perfect but what about the green taste?
Organic Greens. Could this be the solution to my green dilemma?
I am happy to say yes it does fix my problem. Organic Greens is all the healthy stuff without the flavor that puts some of us off of green things. No aftertaste and blends nicely into smoothies or just with water. The Organic Greens blend is smooth and has a light green tea flavor. I combined mine with organic raspberry Greek yogurt, organic juice, and a banana.
Now I can finally get all the benefits of actually hitting the 5 servings a day for vegetables! Take that cold and flu season. You’re not bringing this house down!
Why Organic Greens?
I love coffee and I love tea. The Royal Matcha Green Tea from Mercola is an ideal, refreshing companion to my breakfast. Unlike traditional tea bags, the Royal Matcha Green Tea is in a powdered form. You simply mix it with hot water and enjoy. By not taking out the tea, you are not losing any nutrients that are found in tea.

The kids squealed, my friends cheered, and I started to immediately plan out how to make this another great Disney themed celebration!
It’s here it’s here!
My theme is Mickey and Friends or the “no-theme.” That means my box was packaged with a little Pixie Dust and Bippidi Bobbidi Boo magic!
Ta-Da! We are so ready to party with you!
The kids and I have also picked up more magical surprises for our guests! Nope not sharing those pics there has to be some mystery!
The hardest part for me is which character will I represent this year at the party?
For all the fun from last year read This is How We Show Our DisneySide!
This party is sponsored by Disney as a Disney Side promotion. I was given free products to use for this party. All opinions are my own, and you should know by now how much I LOVE Disney!
Molly’s Suds offers a variety of laundry care products to detoxify your life. They have laundry powders, whiteners, sport wash, dog shampoo, cloth diaper powder, and wool dryer balls.
Molly’s Suds products are free of perfumes, dyes, parabens, SLS/SLES, formaldehyde, 1,4-dioxane, phosphates, Certified Cruelty Free and Vegan. They are safe for pets, humans, and the Earth.
With two kids, a husband, and pets we have no shortage of laundry. I tried out Molly’s Suds laundry powder on our normal washes and the yucky gym clothes. For large loads you only need 2 scoops. Yes I wasn’t sure 2 scoops could clean a super-sized load but it did! Not only does the Molly’s Suds powder work well but it also clears out the detergent build-up that occurs in your washing machine. A 2-for-1 deal, love it!
When it came to not using a softener and dryer sheet I have to say I was a little nervous. I’ve never not used those so it almost felt wrong to do laundry without them! I won’t lie. I was intimidated by the Wool Dryer balls.
You just toss 3 of them in your dryer and that’s it. If you want a little scent, they recommend adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil. My loads dried in less time and were softer than ever before!
Benefits of Wool Dryer Balls?
- Reduce drying time
- Reduce Wrinkles
- Soften Laundry
- Long lasting! They last up to 3 years, that is almost 1,000 loads!
- Works with all types of laundry- towels, comforters, cloth diapers, clothing, and delicates
- Replaces the need for fabric softener and dryer sheets
Molly’s Suds products are available for purchase today at the Kiwi Shop! I recommend picking up the starter pack for tackling all your laundering needs!
