War Room DVD Review and Giveaway!

Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.
I am so excited to share this War Room review and giveaway with you.  From the first time I saw the preview, I couldn’t wait to see this movie and was counting down the days till it was released on DVD.
If you havent seen the preview take a look:
About War Room:
From the award-winning creators of Fireproof and Courageous comes WAR ROOMa compelling drama with humor and heart that explores the power that prayer can have on marriages, parenting, careers, friendships, and every other area of our lives.  
Tony and Elizabeth Jordan seemingly have it all – great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house.  But appearances can be deceiving.  Tony and Elizabeth Jordan’s world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage.  While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth’s bitterness only increases. 
But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth’s newest client, Miss Clara, challenges Elizabeth to a prayer “war room” and a battle plan of prayer for her family.  As Elizabeth begins to fight for her family, Tony must decide if he will make amends.
As Miss Clara wisely says, “Victories don’t come by accident!” A #1 movie in theaters, WAR ROOM is filled with more of the authentic characters loved by millions in previous Kendrick Brothers’ films and a vivid reminder that prayer is a powerful weapon.  

What I Thought:
I watched War Room over the weekend with my husband and we both loved it.  It is such an empowering and moving movie that spoke to us in so many ways.
The power of prayer is incredible and this movie brings that to life and puts it in front of us in an entertaining way.  As the movie ended, I thought to myself “man my prayer like is luke warm too” and this movie gave me a boost to get my passion for the Lord back on fire.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to see this movie yet, I definitely recommend seeing it!

Artur Castle Playset Review and Giveaway #krooom

*Disclosure:  We received a press sample to facilitate this review: all opinions are 100% my own*
When we first opened the Artur Knights and Dragons Playset I was terrified by the huge pile of cardboard that needed to be put together, and as I spent an hour building the play set I was getting even more aggravated.  Then I got into a rhythm and the building became easier.
Once It was put together I was very impressed by how sturdy and durable the set is.  When I saw that it was built out of cardboard my first impression was it would last a few hours at most with my rambunctious kids, however once I saw it fully built I was shocked at how sturdy and strong the structure is!  I am happy to say that after a week of fun and imagination our Krooom Set is still perfect! 

The set comes with a wide selection of characters and accessories which has kept the kids imaginations busy during this major blizzard over the last few days, which has kept mommy sane!
KROOM Details:
Artur Castle Playset-

Protect the magnificent castle and let down the drawbridge for imagination!
With lots of moving play features, hidden treasures and
Accessories. The story of Artur the young prince and Rafael the Dragon, is about to begin….
Kids are transported to a world filled with marvelous missions, castles, dragons and knights.

The castle’s beautiful, but foreboding walls are a garrison of strength with parapets, turrets, sliding prison door, lowering drawbridge, ladders and the royal crest. Knights patrol the wall tops, flaming dragons fiercely attack and the noble prince rallies the troops for victory.

Build a castle fortress that’s strong, impressive and eco-friendly too! Creativity and logic enter in as kids fight daring battles with Krooom.

Every durable, reinforced laminated printed board fits together precisely and holds up like a fortress should. The castle grows higher until it reaches 1 and 1/2 feet high by 2 feet wide. Every noble character is put into place.

Disney Legacy Collection Series ~ The Little Mermaid CD Review and Giveaway #disneymusic #enmnetwork

* I received the Little Mermaid Legacy Collection CD as a member of the Entertainment New Media Network. No further compensation was received and all opinions are my own. This post may also contain affiliate links. *

We are huge Disney fans and one of my most favorite Disney movies is The Little Mermaid.  I could watch it on repeat for days, the characters are awesome, I mean who doesn’t love Flounder!  Plus I believe The Little Mermaid has the best soundtrack, maybe its because I remember going to see this movie when it was released so the music has stuck with me but I will never get sick of listening to “Part of Your World” and “Under the Sea”.

To celebrate The Little Mermaids 25th anniversary Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection has released The Little Mermaid featuring a beautifully illustrated 20 page booklet and 2 CD’s filled with wonderful music.  Here’s a sample that will surely get you in the Disney spirit:
We have been enjoying this CD in the car for days now and all the kids love it.  It’s so much fun to sing along and see them enjoying the songs that I have loved sense I was their age.

Beach Road Designs Beach Sheet Review and Giveaway ~ Holiday Gift Guide

*Disclosure:  We received a press sample to facilitate this review: all opinions are 100% my own*
Perfect for the beach, picnics, travel or anywhere you need to spread out, Beach Sheets are compact when folded and can be stored in the included pouch. They’re great for travel and also make great gifts! Beach Road Designs “Beach Sheet” is machine washable, with like colors. The 100% cotton material allows them to dry fast, while softening them with every wash. The nearly 6’ square shape makes your Beach Sheet the perfect size to lounge, play or sleep on.

 My Thoughts:
My family loves the beach, the hubby grew up on the beaches of Brazil so going to the beach is something he loves and I also find it very relaxing especially now that the kids are getting a bit older.  However with 3 kids, lugging beach chairs or large blankets down to the sand can be stressful and overwhelming.  I like to be able to fit everything we need for the day in 3 pieces, a tote for towels, sunblock, exc.  A small cooler for drinks and snacks, and A small tote of sand toys.  This is ideal for me because I can carry a cooler or tote while holding little hands, and Antonio can carry the other while holding the second little hand.  Anything more than this and I am to tired and stressed to enjoy it once I get to the sand.
This is why I am so excited about Beach Road Designs, Beach Sheet!  First off its tiny when it folds up, smaller than any of the kids beach towels.  It will easily slide into my tote or even my pocketbook if we’re just heading to the park or soccer field.  However as small as it is folded in its little pouch, its huge when you unfold it!  3 kids, a dog, and 2 parents huge!  I love that, no more laying out 5 beach towels only to have them picked up to dry off with and then filled with sand before its even sat on.  This breach sheet gets laid out at the beginning of our trip and there is plenty of room for everyone to sit and eat or laydown and nap.  Plus its also machine washable, no more hosing off beach chairs.  I come home and toss it in the washing machine, then fold it back up for next time.  
Beach Sheets come in a variety of designs and colors and are available one the Beach Road Designs website for $49
