Stuff That In Your Stocking – Man Of Steel

by MARIA on November 29, 2013

Thanks to everyone who entered yesterday and to the winner of The Conjuring  – Maria!

To celebrate the holidays, I’m giving away some great movies all this week!! Each giveaway will end at the end of the day so make sure to enter for your chance to win a different movie every day! And remember, you don’t have to celebrate Christmas to enter – all are welcome.

Today’s movie…..Man of Steel.

I had never watched any of the Superman movies, (gasp from the crowd), before this one. The brood thought it was fun, and loud and a really impressive flick to watch. I will say that Henry Cavill is perfectly cast as Superman – his bone structure is perfection. Chiseled doesn’t begin to cover it – seriously. This was a great movie – we all enjoyed it, including the little people, although the seven year old was not impressed with the kissing.

Stuff That In Your Stocking – The Conjuring

by MARIA on November 28, 2013

Thanks to everyone who entered yesterday and to the winner of Pacific Rim – Laura Monroe.

Today’s movie…..The Conjuring.

I would love to tell you that this was a great movie but I was too scared to watch it. I’m a wimp what can I say. The sad thing is I REALLY want to see it, but I’m that person that will be afraid to look under the bed for months afterward. Also when the husband travels, I would be standing by the front door with the biggest spatula I have and my kid’s hockey stick as protection. But I can tell you that the friends who have seen it, said it was scary as hell. PERFECT FOR THE HOLIDAYS!!

Only 30 days until Christmas. How it’s that time of year again, I do not know.

However, to celebrate the holidays, I’m giving away some great movies all this week!! Each giveaway will end at the end of the day so make sure to enter for your chance to win a different movie every day!

Of course, you don’t have to celebrate Christmas to enter – any lovely (and grumpy) Canadian is welcome.

First up…..The Great Gatsby.

I’ve loved this book since I was forced to read it in high school. Such a great read. Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation stars the gloriously handsome Leonardo DiCaprio and fantastic Carey Mulligan in what I think was a gorgeous and cool version of the book. I’ve been a fan of Luhrmann’s since Moulin Rouge so I knew I would enjoy this as well. And the clothes? Amazing.

To enter to win a Bluray/DVD copy of The Great Gatsby, leave me a comment below with something that is on your wish list this holiday season!

We Bought A House!

by MARIA on November 14, 2013

Have you ever done anything so spur of the moment that it’s almost hard to believe it actually happened?

Me too.

I bought a house.

I saw a house, went to see the house, put in an offer, negotiated it and it was mine within a day.

Did I mention the husband was in Vegas “working?”

Did I mention that it’s across the street from where I live now? Or perhaps that we move in, in the dead of winter and it’s going to be damn cold carrying all my heavy furniture across the street?

Sometimes you see something and you just have to have it. Like a sweater, or a pair of shoes. Or a house.

Our home now is where we’ve lived for the last 12 years. I’ve brought my babies home here, and raised them here, laughed and cried here. Every inch of this house is marked by a memory, an event, an experience and I’m trying to get over that or I may never be able to actually move out. But then again, I have no choice.

We’ve already sold our house. We listed it and that same night, it was sold to a sweet young couple. We sold in a day, we bought in a day. It was meant to be. Of course, our new best friend Krishan (Best. Realtor. Ever.) was amazing and had everything to do with how quickly everything happened. We owe him expensive whiskey and many Greek desserts.

We live in an established, quiet neighbourhood with big trees and great neighbours (well, most are great – we tend to avoid the annoying ones). So the house we bought is not new, and it needs work but the bones are there. It needs A LOT of paint (every surface, everywhere), floor refinishing, new light fixtures, and a sense of humour for starters. Starting over in a new old house is exciting and overwhelming at the same time but we’re excited.

I’m thinking about posting about our new house and our attempts to make it fab, from time to time. I promise not to claim to be anything but a regular schmo trying to make my house less ugly. Making My House Less Ugly – I think I just thought of the name for all my house related posts!

Look for my next post titled….Packing is Going to Suck.

How to Celebrate Your Friend-iversary & A Giveaway

by MARIA on October 3, 2013

The audience got to witness a momentous milestone in Nick and Schmidt’s relationship in season two of New Girl: their ten year anniversary of being roommates. It’s hard to imagine living with Schmidt and his crazy personality traits for so many years, but it can be done. If you have an important friend-iversary coming up, you don’t want to be caught off guard when your friend sends you an e-mail similar to the one Schmidt sent Nick, asking how you should plan on commemorating this special friend-iversary. Check out the ideas below for some fun ways to celebrate! 

Destination: Best Friends Forever

There’s no better excuse for a vacation than a special friend-iversary. Hop in the car with your BFF and hit the road towards whatever destination you’ve been dying to visit. Be sure to stock the car with your favorite snack foods and lots of CD’s full of songs that the two of you have jammed to over the years. There’s no need to worry about being stuck in the car for hours upon hours, because you and your best friend know how to make anything fun and entertaining.

Drinking Buddies

 

A friend-iversary calls for some serious celebration. Hit the town and get rip roaring drunk with your besty. This form of celebration is perfect for that best friend that you met in college, just like Nick and Schmidt, who was by your side every weekend ready to throw back a few shots. You may be a little past your weekend warrior days, but this is a special occasion!  With drinks in hand, there’s bound to be tons of toasts in honor of your friendship and a lot of great memories resurfacing.

Kick It on the Couch

 

Nick and Schmidt really loving kicking back on the couch and watching TV. Your friend-iversary celebrations don’t have to be too crazy. After all, you have been friends for a long time and can find the fun in pretty much any activity when you’re together. Make it a night in for just the two of you. Pull out some old photo albums and let the nostalgia and sentimental feelings come flooding in. A night in will bring out all of the “I love you man” or “Girl, you’re like my sister” statements. With a friendship as strong as Nick and Schmidt’s there’s nothing embarrassing about sharing your feelings.

Friendship Flashback

 

Is there something or someplace that you and your BFF used to always do together? Maybe you completely forgot about that restaurant where you used to eat breakfast every Sunday morning or that bar that you frequented for their beer specials on weeknights. In honor of your friend-iversary, make an appearance at one of your old hang out spots. As soon as you walk in the door, all of the old memories will come back to you and you’re bound to have a great time reminiscing.

Take a Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

 

A friend-iversary means that the two of you have been hanging out for many, many years. Your pal probably makes you feel more comfortable than anyone else. They know everything about you and can talk sense into you when you’re being a little irrational.  Maybe you both secretly want to go sky diving, eat a crazy food, or try out a new religion. If you do it together, in honor of your anniversary, then you will forget that you’re a little terrified, grossed out, or nervous. Schmidt would agree; anything is possible with your BFF by your side.

GIVEAWAY!!

I’m giving away one DVD copy of New Girl Season 2!!

To enter leave a comment below with your favorite New Girl character (I’m partial to Schmidt).

When Jack unknowingly reopens a gateway between our world and the giants, he’s forced to battle them to stop the from reclaiming the land they once lost.
