Family Game Night is on the Move!


This post brought to you by PlayStation(R) Move. All opinions are 100% mine.
Click HereImagine for a moment that Christmas came a little early and Santa (or one of his elves since Santa may still be on vacation) brought you and your family a PlayStation(R)MOVE.  Just think of all the things your family could do with this…family games nights would become more interactive, siblings who are constantly fighting over who was the better gamer could physically duke it out in a one on one Sports Champions game.  Whatever you decide to do, Play Station Move is great exercise for the whole family!
Here is a little info from the makers of Play Station Move:
“PlayStation®Move redefines motion gaming with the most immersive and realistic gaming experience only possible on the PlayStation®3 system. The simple, easy-to-use controller captures a full range of motion giving you ultimate control over how you play the game. With a diverse selection of games and new ones launching all the time, you can enjoy hours of fun with friends and family.”
Some key features of the Play Station Move are:

  • Your every move is registered by the motion controller.
  • The motion controller vibrates so you can feel every motion you make.
  • Hold a motion controller in each hand to track motion with both hands.
  • Great social activity for you, your family, and friends.

Already have a Play Station?  You may not even have to buy any games?  Check your game library to see if you own any of the Play Station Move games.  If you do, all you need to do is download an update and you are ready to go!  So for only $99, you can get going quickly with the MOVE bundle package!
Like I said earlier, I am excited to try out the Sports Champions game.  My kids are a little young to be that competitive with each other, but my husband and I are VERY competitive and we would have a blast with that game.  The other game I am looking forward to trying is Eyepet.  With that game, you take care of this little pet and it grows.
Check out the PlayStation(R)Move website and tell me what game or games you would like to try out.

Avon’s Walk for the Cure in New York – Registration DISCOUNT

One of the things I have always wanted to do, and will do one of these days, is a walk for Breast Cancer.  I actually was planning on joining a team a few years ago, but I ended up dislocating both knees and that kind of threw a wrench in the plans.

The New York walk is truly a tour of the Big Apple.  On Saturday you start out at the Hudson River’s Pier 84.  From there you head to the USS Intrepid, to the Upper West Side, then to Greenwich Village, and SoHo.  Then you will head over the Brooklyn Bridge and stop by DUMBO before heading to Manhattan over the Manhattan Bridge.  Next you walk through Chinatown, the lower East Side and into the Upper East Side.  Then you will rest for the night at Randall’s Island home.

On Sunday you will go back to the Upper West Side and past Central park.  Then you head through Midtown, passing by Rockefeller Center and Bryant Park.  Finally you head back to the Hudson river and finish up back at Pier 84.

The 26.2 miles you walk on Saturday and the 13.1 miles you walk on Sunday are so worth it.  Because you take the time to do this, men and women across the country can get medical care regardless of whether or not they can pay.  Not only that, but research teams can work on finding a cure.

Here’s a video of just how awesome this walk really is:

So if you decide to register, I have a code for you that will give you $20 off your registration fee!!!!  Head on over to the New York page and register today.  Enter WALK11 to save $20!!

I still remember the day like it was yesterday.  I was in Mr. P’s class and I could not see the board.  I was terrified of telling my mom that I couldn’t see.  I was kind of shy and had a hard time making friends so the thought of adding eyeglasses to the mix terrified me.  Do you remember the kinds of glasses people wore in the 80’s?  My gosh those things were ugly.

But of course, like always, my little secret of not being able to see came out and my mom took me to the eye doctor.  I vaguely remember that appointment.  I swear there was something else in those eye drops they put in my eyes to dilate them.  But I somewhat recall a monkey on a shelf clapping cymbals together.  See?  There HAD to be something in those drops.  But the worst was when the doc said those 4 little words, “she needs prescription glasses“.

I thought I was going to have a heart attack.  My head went instinctively between my legs and I began breathing slowly into a paper bag.  Just kidding.  I mean I did freak out at the thought of having to wear glasses, but it really wasn’t that bad.  I tried on what seemed like millions of glasses when I finally settled on the most beautiful, 80’ish glasses I could find.  Thick, plastic, rose colored glasses!

Now a days you don’t even have to go into a store to try on glasses.  You can sit back with a bottle of wine, upload your picture, and “try” on all the glasses you want and even buy the glasses online!  The site, Glasses USA not only lets you try glasses on your very own picture, but they want you to take 10% off your next order by using the code “Mommy10” at

Be sure to also check them out on facebook!

Leave me a comment and tell me what kind of glasses you like!

Are YOU Familiar with Boost Mobile?

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile. All opinions are 100% mine.

You should be!

Boost Mobile is a pay as you go mobile phone company.  You have the option to pay monthly or pay by the minute.  When you pay monthly, you simply Re-Boost your phone and you are good to go.  And what’s nice about their payment options is the fact that you can pay online using your debit or credit card, pay in person, or pay by phone.  If you are one of those people that would much rather have your payments taken out monthly, you have that option too!  For those people who have no idea what to get you for gifts, they can re-boost your phone for you!

Are you a social network guru?  Do you like to Twitter your way through your day?  Update your friends and family with facebook?  Well Boost Mobile has a few things that are right up your ally.  For just $60 a month, you can have unlimited phone, unlimited text, and unlimited web with the Boost Mobile Blackberry Curve!  You can’t beat that for a Blackberry!  Not only do you get the unlimited text, web, and phone, but you also get the option of these other features and making International calls to select International areas for just $10 a month!!

Interested in the Motorola i1 phone?  It’s the first nationwide Boost Mobile walkie-talkie powered by Android.  Some of the features you get with this phone are unlimited text, phone, walkie-talkie, 411, and more!

To get started you would need to purchase a Boost Mobile phone which you can do on their website or at any nationwide seller of Boost Mobile.  You can activate your Boost Mobile phone online by creating an account.  Once you have the account created you simply enter your SIM card number, pick your phone number (in some cases, you may be able to bring your old number over), choose your plan and you are ready to go!!

Want to customize your phone?  Go ahead!  You can purchase ring tones from the Boost Mobile site as well.  Check out their accessories while you’re at it.  Be sure to pick up a headset…a lot of states are going hands free with their cell phones.  I would hate for you to get a ticket.

Still unsure if Boost Mobile is the best pay as you go mobile for you?  Check out their comparison chart here to see for yourself!  I don’t know why I’m still paying for T-Mobile when I could be getting everything I have now, for a lot less!  Time to see if my contract is almost up!

Off to Sign my Daughter up for Pole Dance Lessons

Just kidding.

I’m not signing Bella up, but I could if I lived in Canada.  That’s right.  Apparently in B.C. Canada, parents are very happily signing their daughters up for various pole dancing classes.  I’ll wait a minute while you let that sink in.

Tammy Morris, owner of Tantra Fitness where these pole dancing classes are at, is also a former exotic dance champion.  Morris has worked hard to try and change the image of pole dancing from something sexual to an image of intense exercise for your core.  Which I don’t doubt for one second that it is good exercise, but come on…for kids, tweens and teens?  No way in hell.

And how in the world can Ms. Morris claim there is nothing sexual about the pole or pole dancing classes with names like:

  • Bellylicious
  • Sexy Flexy
  • Pussycat Dawls
  • Promiscuous Girls

Sure they have age restrictions in place for the “Exotic Dance” and “Lap Dance” classes, but there is no way I would want to sign my daughter up for something like “Sexy Flexy” or “Promiscuous Girls”.  I can see it now, kids are going to be doing their fancy pole tricks on the playground and there will be an epidemic of kids spending all their lunch money dollars.

Morris has also been quoted to saying:

“Children have no (erotic) association with the pole whatsoever”

She goes on to argue that children see the same apparatus at a fire station.  Only problem with her logic here is, firemen don’t swing their legs around the pole in suggestive manners while sliding down the pole, nor do they try and flip their legs above their head on the pole.

Bottom line, these classes are so highly inappropriate for kids, teens and tweens.  Next thing you know, there will be a class called “Snail Trail”.
