#Booitforward With GHOSTBUSTERS

Did you know that the new GHOSTBUSTERS movie is out on digital as of 9/27 and on Blu-ray/DVD on 10/11? Now is the perfect time to grab a copy. I loved this movie. I’m a big fan of Leslie Jones (she was also on SNL, love her) so I knew I was going to see this. We are Ghostbusters (the original movies) fans as well, none bigger then my husband. Some people got all up in arms because this was different people and years later, but that’s foolish in my opinion. It’s a new movie- give it a chance. I didn’t look at it like it was a sequel, more like a new movie, or picking up where one left off. It was really funny, and the characters are witty, too. It doesn’t hurt that Thor (Chris Hemsworth) was running around, either. OK, not AS Thor. But whatever- ladies, take what you can get. 😉  It’s nice to have a man as eye-candy in a movie for once, instead of being about the female body and how much of it you can see. Yes? Yes.

It’s that time of year again- the air is crisp, the leaves are changing color, and the ghouls are out.  With this time of year comes the Halloween Harvest at Luna Park.  Luna Park is full of rides and fun for kids of all ages, but this time of year also includes in park Trick or Treating, mazes, pumpkin carving, and more.  Luna’s employees are decked out in costume such as princesses and super heroes and ready to hand out candy to all the little candy hunters that come to the pier. Make sure to visit Jack’s Pumpkin Shack, where guests can try to guess Jack’s weight for a chance to win cash prizes.  Jack is one huge pumpkin!

Creepy Crawly Crafts are also spread throughout the park, where kids can make fun crafts to bring home and decorate.  Kooky Spooky Karaoke has guests dress up and sing some of their favorite songs.  There is also a monster themed dance party, the Monster Mash, magic shows, clowns, face painting, and balloon benders as well.  This is the perfect time to check out Luna Park with your little ones in tow for a fun seasonal activity.
(more…) For Your Ultimate Family Halloween Costumes @Jet

There are many options in regard to buying Halloween costumes for your family online.  Many places carry the same exact costumes, and as a consumer it can be a pain to weed through the results and find a reputable retailer who also has the best prices and value for your hard earned money.

pic6 is a brand new retailer that sprung up this summer, and has a plethora of goods available.  The pricing algorithm Jet uses not only finds the items you are looking for but also finds them for the best available prices as you shop, factoring in additional parameters such as waiving free returns or choosing lower cost payment methods as well as buying items from a single seller instead of multiple sellers.  This is very useful when piecing together Halloween costumes for the family.  From face paint to plastic accessories, everything is available on Jet at a low price.  They provide free shipping on orders over $35.  This is without paying extra to belong to a savings club as well, which is the added perk of not factoring in additional costs.  The free shipping does take some time, so to be sure you get your costumes by Halloween I would suggest expedited shipping just in case.

So, Your Kid Loves Deadpool

Disclosure- I received the below in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own and honest. All photos are my own, taken in my real house, with no crazy staging or photoboxes- there are no filters, wild edits, or photoshopping done. They have been (size) cropped to fit into the post. This is real life- you know, how it is when you actually use things- because authenticity matters.

How did that happen?  I’m not really sure how it happened here in my house, other then daddy is a comic book nerd.  Like a good parent, I said he needed to wait until he was older to read Deadpool.  Like a typical daddy, he went ahead a read it to him anyway, although he “modifies” certain words and phrases, since Deadpool is WAY not for kids. And now, my kid loves Deadpool.  It’s his very favorite.

It’s really hard to find anything about Deadpool in his size- t-shirts, costumes, really anything at all.  I’m not so very crafty or great at sewing, so that doesn’t help matters.  Since he already told me he wants to be Deadpool for Halloween this year, I have been looking for Halloween Costumes 2015. I knew it would be a tough one to find, and I was right.
