SISTERS starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler #SistersMovie





“Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are comedy perfection.” – Hollywood Life

Tina Fey (TV’s Saturday Night Live30 Rock) and Amy Poehler (TV’s Saturday Night LiveParks and Recreation) reunite in Sisters, the story of two disconnected sisters summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family house. Looking to recapture their glory days, they throw one final high-school-style party for their classmates, which turns into the cathartic rager that a bunch of ground-down adults really need. Critics say Sisters is “hilarious, heartfelt, & downright dysfunctional.” –

The Choice Opens Feb 15! #Giveaway #TheChoice

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for Lionsgate. I received information to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.


I am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan and have read all of his books. The Choice was one of my favorites. All of his stories are pretty sappy and make me cry but they also make me think of my own life and how I live it.

About the Movie:
When feisty medical student Gabby Holland moves in next door to perennial ladies’ man Travis Shaw, they embark on a surprising romantic journey neither imagined possible. Travis has always believed a serious relationship would cramp his easygoing lifestyle, while Gabby is preparing to settle down with her long-term boyfriend—until an irresistible attraction between the unlikely couple upends both of their well-planned lives. Spanning a decade and tracing the evolution of a love affair that is ultimately tested by life's most defining events, this story features a memorable ensemble of friends and family in Sparks's beloved North Carolina setting, culminating with the question that every couple must ask themselves: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive? 

The Choice really showed me that falling in love doesn't always happen when we want it to, it just happens when we need it to. 

GIVEAWAY: One reader will receive $25 Visa eGift Card (sent to your email), The Choice Tie-In Movie Book, Sea-Shell Wind-chimes and The Choice Bookmark. Open to US only. 
Prizing provided by Lionsgate
If you have won the same prize on another blog, you will not be eligible to win it again. ends 2/17/16

Our Top 5 Baby Items

Disclosure: As a Tommee Mommee, I was provided a gift card for this post. All opinions are my own.

If someone asks what are my top baby must haves, I like to give them my top 5 items that we have tried and swear by. With the 3 girls, we used Tommee Tippee Anti Colic bottles. 2 out of 3 girls had reflux and these bottles were a lifesaver for my husband and I. They are easy to switch between bottle and breast and made out lives much easier. The Anti-Colic bottles were designed to reduce air bubbles in milk. Best bottles ever! We also used the closer to nature baby bottles when the girls got bigger.

Aden+Anais Swaddle Blankets are amazing! They make a great swaddle and an excellent cover while nursing. They come in so many gorgeous prints for both boys and girls. Amelia still uses hers for nap and bed at age 2.

The Chicco Nextfit car seat is pretty much hands down my favorite seat. It is super easy to install and Amelia has always seemed to be comfy while in the car. They offer a variety of colors and also have a Nextfit Zip in which the fabric zips off for easy removal for washing. It can be used from birth on up.

Boba baby carrier has made going to the grocery store with 4 kids a breeze. My husband even loves his. Especially since it's camo! It comes in handy for us while we are in the Poconos and Amelia needs to be with an adult. 

The Tommee Tippee Filter Water Bottle. This is of course for when your babes are older. Amelia loves hers. I love that it's filtering out the yucky stuff while she gets her daily water intake. Oh, did I mention it's leakproof?!

New Year, New Breakfast Sandwich At Dunkin' Donuts & A Giveaway

Disclosure: Party of 5 was provided  compensation for this post. All opinions are my own.

Recovering from ACL surgery is no fun ad neither is having to go to physical therapy 3 times a week on top of all of the other appointments this family of 6 has is taking a toll on me.

In the morning I don't often have time to stop and make myself breakfast but I do pass 2 Dunkin' Donuts on my way to pt. During one of my recent stops, I saw that they have brought back the Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich!

Beginning December 28, for a limited time you can get the Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich at participating Dunkin' Donuts.

With under 400 calories per sandwich, this makes a great on the go breakfast (or lunch/dinner/snack).

The Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich features juicy chicken sausage with spices and real apples along with an egg and reduced fat cheddar cheese all on top of a toasted english muffin.

 For a yummy breakfast before PT I grabbed the Chicken Apple Sausage, a Bacon Egg and Cheese on a bagel, medium coffee and hash browns for under $11! 

Dunkin' donuts offers a great variety of breakfast sandwiches that can be purchased any time of the day and can be served on bagels, english muffins, croissant and other options.

For me, sitting down to enjoy a meal doesn't always happen, I know I can count on Dunkin' Donuts to have a great menu that fits my needs when I am on the go.

Make sure you stop by participating Dunkin' Donuts to try the Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich, afterall it's only available for a limited time!

Party of 5 is giving away a $25 mGift card to ONE lucky reader!
