Are you ready for some football? We are in our house! My hubby is a Cowboys fan, so we decided to throw a game day party to get in the spirit. They are currently one and one, and need us to cheer them on to more victories!

Game day food is fun to make, and doesn’t have to take a lot of time. I grabbed the crockpot to make yummy Pepsi pulled pork sandwiches. (That recipe is coming on the blog soon!)

I ran to Family Dollar and grabbed all of the essentials… chips, dips, paper products and more. We were set! Snacks to enjoy during the game and pulled pork sandwiches at half time! Shop your local Family Dollar for quick party supplies and eats.

Erin Condren Life Planner Calendar Review

316872662_CI_life_planner_quote-3
If you have been thinking about getting a Life Planner calendar, then you might be interested in ordering one from Erin Condren! I have been using my iPhone for several years now and was not sure I wanted to go to a paper form calendar until I looked at one week and how crazy it is with my kids school and sports schedules.

Here is my video review. (I like to see what I getting before I order….especially when it’s something I plan to use daily for over a year!)

I love my Life Planner and plan to keep using it daily and hoping it keeps me organized and on top of things. The only thing I wish I could change about it is the size. It doesn’t fit into my small purse. Guess I could get a bigger one!

Sign up for emails from Erin Condren and you just might get a coupon code to save money on your first order!

Two new shows coming on ABC this Fall: Cristela and Black-ish

There are a few new shows coming out on ABC this fall. WFAA in Dallas will have both of these on their network. After a long day and the stresses of life, it’s fun to kick back and watch a good comedy. Thanks to ABC there are two new ones to check out this fall!

Cristela – Premieres Friday, October 10th 7:30pm on ABC

In her sixth year of law school, Cristela (Cristela Alonzo) is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. The only problem is that her pursuit of success is more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate. She’s stuck straddling the old culture she’s trying to modernize at home with her working-class family and the modern world she’s trying to embrace in her professional career. Breakout comedian Cristela Alonzo stars in this hilarious comedy about laughing your way down the path of the new American dream.

You can preview some clips from the show here or follow them on Twitter or Facebook for more info!

Black-ish – Premieres Wednesday, September 24th 8:30pm on ABC

Andre ‘Dr’ Johnson (Anthony Anderson) has a great job, a beautiful wife, Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross), four kids and a colonial home in the ‘burbs.  But has success brought too much assimilation for this black family? With a little help from his dad (Laurence Fishburne), Dre sets out to establish a sense of cultural identity for his family that honors their past while embracing the future.

Doc McStuffins: School of Medicine now on DVD

4D04D03A-40D4-414F-9B79-B15FDE6FDE2C
We have been huge Doc McStuffins fans for a while now! We had a full circle moment while watching the new Doc McStuffins: School of Medicine this week. In this series of shows, Doc tackles several things that are worrisome for kids. She plays an optometrist, helping her stuffed owl toy, Professor Hoostburgh, to see clearly again. She also plays as a dentist, and last as a radiologist, taking an inside look at Daisy’s arm after a Roller Disco fall.

Maci, my 6 yr old has a broken leg. When we went to get her leg x-rayed, she freaked out. She didn’t know what they were going to do and the fact that they wouldn’t let me sit with her, scared her even more. If she would have seen this Doc McStuffins DVD before going, she wouldn’t have been so scared!

This one ends with Doc spraining her own ankle. How will it end? Who will take care of Doc? You will have to watch to find out.

You can order Doc Mcstuffins: School of Medicine for just $12.96 right now on Amazon! This DVD runs 120 minutes.
