WIN Shrek for the New Generation #Swampathon #Shrek15Insiders


Are you ready for to feel old?  I hope so, because the original Shrek movie is celebrating its 15th anniversary.  That means there is an entire generation that may not have seen the original green onion, I mean ogre, in all is glory.  The first Shrek movie came out from Dreamworks Animation in 2001.  The first Shrek movie follows the adventures of Shrek and his not so helpful friend Donkey where they meet Princess Fiona and Dragon to name a few of the familiar faces.  Shrek goes on to make 3 more movies and even a few holiday specials and shorts.


My son loves all the Shrek movies.  He is a big fan of Shrek and has been since he first saw the movie.  We also ate green popcorn and wore green-Shrek ear/ head bands which made the viewing experience a ton more fun for him.  The beauty of a movie like Shrek is that there is humor aimed toward adults which flies right over kids heads, and also a simple easy to follow story with lovable main characters and clear cut good guys/ bad guys throughout the movie.  It is a movie that is actually fun for everyone to watch.



Shrek is a definitely watch for any age but is especially fun for families.

One of you can win a movie of your own- please feel free to enter using the RC form below.  Contest ends July 8, 2016. Good luck!

#HighStrungMovie opens April 8th

Disclosure- I will receive compensation for this post. All opinions are my own and honest.

My son and I recently saw the movie “High Strung” , which opens in theaters April 8th.  We both enjoyed the movie, which was full of dancing (of all kinds and varieties), music, and some stars of one of our favorite TV shows, “So You Think You Can Dance”.  In fact, one of the companies that helped make the movie was the Dizzy Feet Foundation, which is the brainchild of the show’s hosts and producer Nigel Lythgoe and director Adam Shankman to help bring dance to everyone.

The show had a light plot, and of course a love story- the love of arts, but also of a young, down on his luck violinist and a blonde ballerina.


My son was able to meet choreographer Dave Scott, who has also appeared on So You Think You can Dance, as well as stars of the movie Keenan Kampa and Nicholas Galitzine. He loved seeing the people on the big screen in person, especially Dave Scott (whom he has been watching for years).

Please also join us for a Twitter Party tonight at 9pm EST to chat with the movie’s director, Michael Damian, and win great prizes.


About HighStrung:
In a city where only the best succeed, two radically talented people from opposite sides of the tracks need to find harmony to achieve their dreams.

RUBY ADAMS is a dancer from the Midwest on scholarship, living her first day in New York City. JOHNNIE BLACKWELL is a British musician, playing for money in the subway tunnels. Ruby’s world is classical and disciplined; Johnnie’s is improvisational and street smart. When a hip-hop battle gone wrong throws these two artists together, they immediately clash but can’t deny it when sparks begin to fly. Their lives quickly get entangled in the pitfalls that come with competing in New York City. With the help of a dynamic dance crew called The SwitchSteps, Ruby and Johnnie must find a way to save Ruby’s scholarship and keep Johnnie from being deported.

In an action-packed extravaganza combining cutting edge hip-hop with contemporary and classical dance, the two must navigate their opposing worlds and prepare for a competition where winning or losing will change their lives forever.

Getting ready for Valentines Day?  Check out this DVD for your little loves- new from Veggie Tales! Such an adorable gift for your cutest Valentines.

VeggieTales “Silly Little Thing Called Love” DVD features three classic stories of “true” love – with lessons in Loving Your Neighbor, Loving Your Family and Loving God! The DVD also includes funny and touching thoughts from the “Veggie Kids” sharing their perspective on love only as kids can!


These lessons provide a wonderful reminder to families that we can show love to others everyday just as God continuously shows us his love!

This DVD has some favorites from past shows and movies, as well as Larry asking kids important questions. It’s a movie you don’t have to worry about letting your kids watch- it’s safe and full of good values, sweet and silly songs, and teaching kids the right way to treat others.  Even if you are not a very religious person or family, Veggie Tales is still great for kids because there really is no parent that doesn’t agree with things like “love your neighbor” and sharing with others, yes?

My son has always loved Veggie Tales, even if we were a little late to the game with them- he saw them for the first time when he was about 4, I believe.  But he really liked them from the first go, and still does at age 8. He was thrilled when this new Veggie Tales arrived, and he can’t wait to watch it!  If only he didn’t have school…..ha.
