New Release Tuesday Captain Marvel

 *Post sponsored by Best Buy. All opinions are my own. 



Today Captain Marvel hits the shelves and with that if you are into collecting or just want a really cool edition check out the Collectible SteelBook which includes custom box art that can only be found at Best Buy

In our family we have always been big Super Hero movie, comic book, and show fans. I know Marvel has been really flooding the screens with their movies lately and we are loving it. Check out The Collectible SteelBook at Best Buy and join in the fun.

My husband really likes the SteelBook format for media like this because the cases are more durable and support a nice artistic design that isn't always found on the standard box form. Below you can see pictures of what you will get in the SteelBook format.

Making Babies




I was recently able to view Making Babies thanks to Huber Bros. Productions so that I could give my honest opinion of the movie. Both my husband and myself are avid movie viewers. We loved them growing up, our first date was at a movie theater, our children grew up going to movie theaters as a family, and us for date nights, we even worked for a movie theater before, we enjoy seeing movies as often as we can, we even quote movie scenes in daily life when they fit the part.



I viewed this movie on my own and I went through a roller coaster of emotions. It could be my age I happen to be 46 going on 47 but I hit happiness, hope, joy, sadness, excitement, and utter amusement to name a few. This movie deals with real issues of struggling to have a baby before your time runs out and making choices with health insurance, finances, dreams, all while family, friends, and everyone in between is giving you advice on how to do it.




There is humor. I didn't find it gut breaking humor but it is there in a sweet way and sometimes strange way at least to me. I encourage those who are struggling to have a baby to watch this movie as well as those who aren't struggling so they know the other side and what their friends, neighbors, and not so good friends might be going through.





Coming from someone who had an easy time having children it really opened my eyes and I hope it will for you too. It isn't always easy to have children. Sometimes it is a struggle from the very beginning, but can be so worth it.


Is it a chick flick? Yes I guess it is, but if you are trying to get pregnant it is also a couples flick, so fellas give it a chance. By the way you would want to miss the funny scenes with guys in it anyways so go along just for that if not for anything else. See ladies I had you covered. wink wink So I hope you enjoy it as much as I did check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.




Distribution Company: Huber Bros. Productions
In Theaters: March 29th
Directed & Written by: Josh Huber
Starring: Eliza Coupe, Steve Howey, Bob Stephenson, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Ed Begley Jr, and
the late Glenne Headly
Running Time: 86 minutes

Katie and John Kelly (Eliza Coupe and Steve Howey) are ready to settle down and have kids but
five years later, all they have to show for their efforts is a mountain of negative pregnancy tests
and an increasingly elaborate home micro-brewing rig, which John hopes will launch his
company.  As they run out of traditional options and their window closing, the couple explores
the daunting world of medical, spiritual, and homeopathic methods to conceive a child. With an
ensemble cast that also includes Bob Stephenson, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Ed Begley Jr., Jon Daly,
and the late Glenne Headly, MAKING BABIES puts a couple through the ringer of modern
infertility treatments and questions whether their marriage will withstand the ultimate test.

14 years and counting

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.


Cutting the cord is easier then you might think. For us it started out as a way to save a big chunk of change per month. After a while we didn't miss it at all. Then came streaming TV, and our lives opened up to not just DVD's but movies, shows, and then most recently to shows that were shown on TV that we can get for free the day after. Not to mention HD Antenna's which bring free broadcasting channels to you in crystal clear form. Except for when there is a storm then you just find another channel. FREE never sounded so good. 

Honestly our children's wishlist's went down by a mile when we cut the cord which was money savings we hadn't thought of until we saw the difference in our budget. Sometimes one change can really make a big difference in your life and this is one we are glad we made.

When we moved to our current home we looked at the prices of TV services and they are just too costly and most of the channels we wouldn't even watch. With Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player we are able to watch movies, shows, live TV, YouTube, and even photos streaming on all of our devices. It is simply awesome.

So easy to connect with High-speed wireless connectivity. Built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi connects to the Internet through your wireless home network (wireless router required and sold separately). Compatible with your existing HDTV. Easily connects to high-definition televisions with HDMI connectivity.

We never do this but now you can. Stream from your phone to TV. Just plug Chromecast into the HDMI port on your TV and to power and stream your favorite entertainment right from your phone with just a tap. Watch shows, listen to playlists, and more. And while streaming, you can still use your phone as you normally do. Works with the streaming apps you know and love.

Enjoy TV shows, movies, videos, songs, games, sports and more from over 2000 apps like Netflix, YouTube, YouTube TV, and HBO NOW. Find more at g.co/chromecast¹

Start streaming with just your voice. Just say what you want to watch from compatible apps and control your TV hands-free, with Chromecast and Google Home working seamlessly together.² Simply say things like“Ok Google, play Stranger Things from Netflix on my living room TV.” ¹

¹ Subscriptions are required to view some content. 
² Google Home, Chromecast, and compatible content required to cast to a TV using Google Home.

FSL Reflex Bluetooth Sport Earbuds




With school just starting we try and make sure the kids each have a set so they can listen to their music, movies, shows, etc without bothering anyone else. My husband gave these a whirl before turning them over to me.

I am not an in ear kind of headphone kind of person, they hurt my ears, my ears are delicate. These take a bit of time to get used to because of how they go into your ear, and around your ear but they are workable. They also come with a neat case to keep them safe from harm in between use.

Connect easily to your iPhone, iPod, Android smart phone or tablet with the Bluetooth wireless functionality and enjoy hassle-free listening.

Wondering if these bluetooth earbuds will fit your ears? Four different sizes of rubber eartips are included, so whether your ears are large or small you're sure to find a comfortable fit. And once you're done listening, zip all the pieces up in the hard case for safe keeping.

Back to School with Netflix

I waited a bit longer to post my post because my kids didn't start school until after Labor Day so I thought it only fitting to post this for the Northern Part of America to coincide with our first day of school.

MC2CARD

My girls are all into Project Mc2 which started on August 7th having gobbled up all of the episodes and are awaiting more.

What Netflix has to say about Project Mc2
Project Mc² is a fresh take on the typical tween girl show you’re probably familiar with. The series has S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) organically woven throughout the storyline, making it fun and breaking the stereotype that being smart, funny, stylish and capable are mutually exclusive. Project Mc² reflects today’s tweens in a relatable way, giving girls four empowered female leads to look up to.
And the offspring of favorite fairytale characters in Ever After High's new Way Too Wonderland adventure (debuting Aug. 14) empower kids to write their own life stories. Whether Royal or Rebel, your actions, behaviors and choices are your own to make.

Get the little ones ready for new experiences with shows like the Netflix original Dinotrux from DreamWorks, premiering Aug. 14 -- prehistoric hybrid dinosaur-construction vehicles team-up to use their different skills to solve problems and show that even the most uncommon of duos, like Ty-Rux and Revvit, can form friendships of a lifetime.

They can also go anywhere and be anything by letting their imaginations soar on a Reading Rainbow journey, now available to stream.

What are you favorite back to school movies or shows?
What MarksvilleandMe has been watching lately.

We were really busy in August between personal issues, several deaths in our family as well as a close friends dieing, on top of the regular getting ready for back to school and college stuff. 

For us school starts in the morning matter of fact it is now 3:28 AM the morning of. I have a few calls to make after the children get on the bus and then it will probably be a very busy day for both myself and my girls for the first day back. 

Along with some of the above suggestions from Netflix, we watched these movies and shows in August. Project Mc2, Spooksville, Hart of Dixie, Z Nation, Bitten, That 70's Show, Supernatural, Richie Rich, Monster Squad, and a whole host of others. We have a big family with lots of shows they like to watch so we divvy it up. Since the kids were out playing most days they only had evenings and mornings to catch up on their shows, but most of the time they put it on watched a few minutes, and were out the door. Only very few did they watch all the way through, but that will change as the weather gets cooler, more days inside, with hot cocoa, snuggled under a blanket, enjoying a movie together as family.

To the Edge and Beyond

How to Train Your Dragon
Dragons: Race to the Edge
only on Netflix

OK I am a blogger and with that comes lots of mail, tons of boxes, and lots of surprises. A huge box showed up and I had no idea what it was. As usual the kids and husband fought over who would open the mystery box. 


The outside of the box was fantastic enough, the kids could hardly wait long enough for me to snap some pictures before I let them open it up.


Once opened we could see a few goodies but had no idea how much would be hidden under all of that red shredded paper (which I am repurposing for Christmas baskets). Once we found everything we set it up for a quick picture before the girls were off looking for Dragons around the house to play with. 





The box was filled with snacks, fun, props, and of course a nice Dragon throw blanket to cover up while enjoying episodes of Dragons: Race to the Edge.

Check out the Dragons: Race to the Edge Trailer below.



What Netflix has to say about Dragons: Race to the Edge

This summer, Hiccup and Toothless, from the critically acclaimed How to Train Your Dragon films are embarking on unparalleled adventures in the all-new Netflix original series Dragons: Race to the Edge - and inviting you along for the dragon ride.
Soaring beyond their home on the island of Berk in search of new dragons, Dragons: Race to the Edge introduces some of the most exciting dragons yet, each with its own amazing abilities -- shock waves, cannon balls and fire blasts, just to name a few.
With the magical Dragon Eye, an artifact Hiccup finds aboard an abandoned ship, Hiccup learns there is more outside the confines of Berk, and that a little curiosity and determination can make every day an exciting journey. In Hiccup’s own words, “this changes everything.”

Ready for another adventure?

Personally this summer has been a big adventure from our third child graduating, our 12 year old attending British Soccer, to my 12 and 7 year old taking the plunge from 15 stories up on the Sky Coaster and also being slingshotted through the air on the  Sling Shot. Next on their list is sky diving. Yes I have two dare devils on my hands. Believe me we would have never let our first born ever do anything like this, but as we age we realize we want our children to be able to do things that might only come along once in their lives, so if they ask, it is legal, and we can make it happen we are in for the adventure along with them. Here is to lots of adventure in your lives as well. 

Tell me about something daring you, your family, or children have done.
