Hubby and I have always enjoyed the Marvel movies and make sure to go and see them in theater, or as soon as they’re released to DVD, every time there’s a new one! Our favorites are Thor (<–my personal favorite….swoon), The Avengers, and Captain America, and just recently we decided the kids are old enough to start watching a few of them with us!

Here in Texas mid-April means the flowers are everywhere and it’s high time to tuck away long sleeves and bring out the shorts! Perhaps because of this all of our family has been having the summertime itch lately, for Amber and Bob I know a lot of it has to do with wanting to be out of school, but for the entire family I’m pretty sure it’s more that just that… fact, I’m almost positive that THIS has a whole lot to do with it…….

Ever since hearing about the Color Run 5k a few years ago I have thought it would be a lot of fun–but I thought there was no way I’d be able to go 3 miles. It wasn’t after we moved to Texas and I started jogging on the treadmill that I realized that after awhile, 1 mile starts to hurt a lot less, and if you push through to 2 and 3 miles it actually gets better! Now–don’t get me wrong, it was just on the treadmill and I was still super slow. Sooo slow that one of my favorite pins says,

I Run. I’m slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter BUT I RUN!

Apparently I’m not alone, however, because that has just happened to be re-pinned over 650 times!

So my hubby is a hottie. He just is! One thing that I’ve always loved about him since we first met was how even as a teenager he always dressed super nice and was always super clean and amazing smelling *inhales deeply, aaahhhhhh!!!!*

Now, that’s not to say he doesn’t get stinky, I mean, he was in the military for crying out loud, and he still loves doing down and dirty projects with his dad in the shop or tackling things like building me a compost bin. He has discovered, however, how to get un-stinky in the most lovely of ways and how to get that good smelling man smell that I love so much back!

If you’ve been a reader for any time you remember me mentioning Amber having eczema, and if you were one of my “from the beginning” readers you remember when we battled with it! Now that she’s 7 I’m super happy that it’s no longer so much of a struggle as long as I keep her away from fragrance and her skin well moisturized.

Of course we’re very teeth aware lately with Amber losing hers all the time and both kids needing to be very viligant on the war against the “cavity bugs” as my dentist growing up always called them.

Did you know that more than 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental related illness, resulting in parents losing 25 million work hours annually? Cavities and oral infections can cause severe pain and can increase a child’s risk for dental issues and poor health throughout their lives.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for GoodNites* TRU-FIT*. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.

As a mommy of two it’s amazing to me how totally different my children are from one another! One loves to sit and do “school” for fun and was writing out the alphabet by age 2, the other has to be bribed into sitting still long enough to go over the ABCs–although he could tell you all about different animals habitats, features, and what predators they have to watch out for.

So if you know me at all you know that I am a HUGE time fan of Lord of the Rings–they’re my favorite movies ever! So I have thoroughly enjoyed The Hobbit movies — The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies definitely made me cry–both because of the movie itself (tear jerker warning!!) and also because it’s the last in the series they can do.

Because of that I just HAD to offer you this giveaway and quiz–be sure to take the quiz and tell me what your middle earth weapon of choice is! Mine came as no surprise–but you have to go enter the giveaway to find out what answer I got! ;)
