Avengers: Age of Ultron Digital/blu-ray release & Giveaway

Have you seen Avengers Infinity War yet?  Y'all may not know this but I'm a huge Marvel fan. I have a serious thing for Superheroes.  I remember as a kid watching Wonder Woman, and all the Marvel Superheroes.  I remember flying my sisters around in my invisible plane and using my lasso of truth on them.  I grew up with so many cousins that we were able to be pretty much all the superheroes. So many great memories.

As an adult, that hasn't changed much.  I still watch them all - like seriously over and over,  but the best part - now I can share that love with my daughter and I'm super happy to say that she takes after her Mami.

After watching Avengers: Infinity War at the theater I had to go back and re-watch the originals again, it was so good.  This movie was funny and you couldn't help but cheer and clap when something awesome happened.  The whole movie theater was laughing and applauding throughout the movie.

Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD on August 14.  In honor of this release, one lucky follower will have the chance to win (1) Avengers: Infinity War Digital Code Card by entering:

Why I Decided To Coach Others To Better Health

If you haven't noticed, there's a new workout that is pretty much the rage in fitness and social media - I'm sure you've heard of it.

I've worked out pretty much all my life especially more so three years ago when I got divorced - more on that later.  Working out is my medicine, my therapy.  During my divorce I started running more, I worked out almost every day and I could feel the stress, frustration, anger just melt away.  On the days I couldn't run I would close my eyes and run as fast as I could in my head.  Remember in Superman when Lois Lane died and Superman flew around the earth in reverse at super high speed to turn back time - well it was like that fricken fast except I didn't want to turn back time. Working out was is my drug, even if it was for a half hour doing whatever, it feels so good!

On Instagram I would follow many of the fitness pro's or pretty much anyone with a great workout page with videos I could do at home. Earlier this summer I joined my first online fitness program for the first time.  It was pretty cheap but I did it more for the guidance on what I needed to do and the meal plan.  I never knew what I was supposed to eat - low carb high carb, what the bloody hell was that shit! I work out at home because not all gyms have a kids area where I can drop off my 8 year old so I would work out at night or early before work. I have learned so much and have connected with some great people online.

I always have people reaching out to me on Instagram asking me if I wanted to join their tribe but I always had to decline. Finding time to work out isn't easy especially as a single mom.  It means I have to prioritize my expenses meaning it's a "nice to have but not a gotta have" and between last month and a few weeks ago I just dropped an unexpected $1k on my car and at the vets.  No es bueno my friends. Then I was talking to a new follower who had checked out my page and thought I was already working in fitness.  That planted a seed.  I researched the info and scheduled some time to chat with her.  I confessed my fears and skepticism but the benefits outweighed my fears.  I decided step outta my comfort zone and then I totally freaked the fuck out!! But I believe in the power of the Universe. I wanted some new opportunities and new adventures. During our call I connected with her in so many levels and I just knew this was a sign from the Universe, that this was meant to be.

For Christmas I got my first tattoo that says Faith Over Fear, you can check it out on my instagram. I have it on my forearm so that I can look at it every single day.  So I have to have Faith Over Fear that I can step out of my comfort zone and do this, I mean hell I already cheer people on when I scroll through Insta and motivate others so I know I've got this and you know what, it feels really good helping others when they are struggling, when they need a little extra push.  We all have tough days, no one wants to workout after working long hours or getting up at the crack of dawn to do it but when you have others doing it with you, makes things a heck of a lot easier.  I look at my beautiful daughter and my amazing dogs that are always there for me so Fuck Ya - I got this.  They are my why! I want to be there when my kids need me.

Today is a new day, make it your day.  If you're ready to make that change, you can leave a message below, hmu on Insta or Twitter.

Our First Trip to American Girl

Successful Day
 Over the weekend I took my daughter to our first trip to the American Girl store.  They have quite a few events listed on their website. You should definitely check them out if you haven't already.

My daughter got her first AG dolls and WellieWisher for Christmas & birthday.  The store is an hour away from us so may of the afternoon and evening events are hard to get to due to the ugly traffic we would hit. 

We had so much fun.  It was a great time for the two of us.  Everything was so cute and so hard to decide on what to get.



My daughter & Kaya
After going around to the different activities they had set out, we went upstairs to have lunch.  I did not realize that we probably should have made a reservation since this was our first time there but they were able to accommodate us nevertheless.  The lunch was absolutely delicious!  I love how they have little high chairs for the dolls to join us.  So awesome!  My daughter was so happy to be sharing her lunch with her doll Kaya. 

It was definitely a great day and lots of wonderful memories for my baby girl, that's what it's all about right, making memories.  She was so excited about her day that she actually fell asleep in the car on the way back home.  The last time that ever happened was when she was a baby.  This kid never naps.  She's already putting her Christmas / birthday list together and can you guess what she's asking for, haha! 

All night she kept saying that it was the best day ever and thanked me a bazillion times for taking her there.  Thank you @americangirl for a great event!  We will be back soon.

Are your kids a fan of American Girl?  What's their favorite doll?

Hello? Helloooo? Is anyone still out there? It's been quite some time since I've been away. It was never my plan to be gone this long and I've certainly missed you all.

Life certainly has a way of throwing you some major curve balls. I've certainly missed you all and I have actually written many posts - in my head. I've attempted to return a few times but the journey I've been on the last few years has been long, challenging and difficult at times to say the least.

During the last few years I've gone through a difficult divorce - more on that later, adjusting to being a single mom to my amazing daughter, working full time now, busy with one of my special needs dogs whom I lost in March - I'm still devastated and miss him so much and pretty much picking up the pieces of a shattered marriage.

There's this crappy roller coaster ride you just really can't get off of when you're divorced and dealing with an extremely difficult narcissistic ex husband but truth be told my favorite words these days are EX HUSBAND.  I've really missed blogging and plan on getting back to it more and lay out what's been happening the last few years.

Talk Soon,

Reenie

Inside Out: Blu-Ray DVD Release and Giveaway

Do you sometimes wonder about your emotions and how you react a certain way?  Well now you can put a face to those emotions of yours - Joy, Anger, Sadness. These emotions can wreak havoc during life-changing moments.  

Disney released a Digital HD version of Inside Out on October 13th but if you still haven't seen this movie then the Blu-Ray DVD is scheduled to be released Nov. 3rd - just a few short days away.

This is a really great movie for both kids and adults. I'm sure we can all relate to Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) a happy, hockey-loving 11-year-old Midwestern girl, but her world turns upside-down when she and her parents move to San Francisco. Riley's emotions -- led by Joy (Amy Poehler) -- try to guide her through this difficult, life-changing event. However, the stress of the move brings Sadness (Phyllis Smith) to the forefront. When Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley's mind, the only emotions left in Headquarters are Anger, Fear and Disgust.

This movie will have you going through all of your emotions and have you laughing as well. We really enjoyed watching this movie and laughed a lot!

My daughter was glued to my tablet watching the movie and she also had a great time coloring the activity sheets, putting her puzzle together and it just so happened that we also got a poster recently when we bought some books at school.  The activity sheets and puzzle provide endless entertainment.  


 

If you haven't seen all the awesome activity and coloring sheets I posted last week along with some great recipes, you can check out the post here
