When people think of theme music for an animated cartoon, most probably don't think too much about the artists making the music. If it's catchy, it may get you singing it under your breath at weird moments of the day. And if other people are around you, they may ask, "What song is that?" And then you have to mutter, "oh...it's from...um...Lego Ninjago". "The what?", they'll probably say. Here, let me show you....…Continue

Our Comic-con adventures continue...
Day 3: I really wanted to take some awesome cosplay pics. But I learned something about myself...I'm super picky when it comes to cosplay! Who knew? In order for me to WANT to take a picture I had to like the costume and feel that it was as close to the original as possible. No disrespect to all the amazing cosplay participants. They were all wonderful for making the effort! Comic-con would not be the same without all the amazing characters walking…

We were fortunate to be able to attend this year's San Diego Comic-Con International for all four days this year! If you're familiar with the lottery system of the Comic-Con ticketing, you can appreciate that being thankful is the only way we should be. And we are!!
This is Part 1 of 2.

Coincidentally, I was sent three products for review from PinchMe and Premier Protein arriving on the same day. I thought, perfect, I'll review them all in one post. ☺ All three products are drinkable but very different from one another. The products are: V8® Veggie Blends, V8® + Energy Orange Pineapple Lightly Carbonated, and Premier Protein Shake. Once again, these products were sent to me free of charge, but my thoughts are entirely my own. Here are my honest reviews of each…Continue

Living in a first-world industrialized nation makes it easy to over indulge, over consume & easily squander our resources. But what's great about living in this type of society is that we are given the all-important choice to NOT do any of these things. I feel Blessed to be living in this great nation--The United States of America. I would never want those choices taken away from me, but what I'd rather do is spread awareness and increase knowledge of alternative ways of living. And this…Continue

There will always be more books on my reading list than time for me to get through them. But that will never stop me from trying. You know that person who always has their nose in a book/Kindle? That's me. Well, at least most of the time, when I'm not checking off my "To Do" list, and raising good boys. Okay, let me rephrase: I'd LIKE to be that person who always has their nose in a book/Kindle. Meanwhile, here's three books I have read recently I'd like to pass on to YOUR reading lists.…Continue

I'm so fortunate to be surrounded by creativity in the form of my favorite people: the Huz, the first-born (my 13-year-old), and "the baby" (who's 10). Their love for superheroes and Lego sets/themes go beyond just the occasional build. They collect, they research (look at reviews, video blogs etc), they anticipate release dates, and my favorite, they make stop-motion videos. ☺I especially love when they collaborate--it's beyond awesome to see them bounce ideas off each other (and yes…Continue

In my opinion, parenthood is the most rewarding yet the most challenging journey any person can take. The act of balancing the responsibilities of time and money is so tricky. And more often than not, parents don't feel like they've hit the mark. And ultimately, no one person's parenting is better than another. It's about the effort to give your kids better than what you experienced in life--the act of selfless love & making choices FOR them instead of ABOUT you. With that being said, I…Continue
