Just an FYI – No Internet One Week

For those who don’t already know. I will be without Internet from today quite possibly through til November 1st. I have schedule all posts for this whole week on this blog and my Mom’s Vacation Land blog. New content will be automatically published on both sites at the days and times I scheduled, I hope to come back online to lots of comment love. I will have access to email from my Verizon Wireless Blackberry Curve but other than that I will be limited in what I can do online in regards to usage of Internet.

I hope to access Internet through wifi at my mom’s or dad’s house at least two times this upcoming week but can not guarantee I will actually do that. So please bear with me while I survive no internet and take a much needed week vacation so to speak!

I do have access to Twiter and Facebook from my Blackberry so you can always contact me via email or Twitter and/or Facebook (links in sidebar). Have a wonderful week! Oh yeah and October 28th is my bday so please stop by then to say Happy Birthday – I will be the big 29!

Disneynature: Oceans Available on DVD & Blu-ray Disc

DISNEYNATURE Oceans

For Every Purchase Between October 19 and 25, Disneynature Will Make A Contribution To Help Protect Coral Reefs!


In celebration of World Ocean’s Day, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment today announces the release of Disneynature OCEANS as a Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu- ray + DVD) and 1-Disc DVD, October 19, 2010 and the extension of the “See OCEANS, Save Oceans” efforts – an initiative developed between Disneynature and The Nature Conservancy to help establish new marine protected areas.

Disneynature OCEANS is helping to conserve more than 35,000 acres of coral reef in The Bahamas on behalf of moviegoers who went to see the film during its theatrical opening week. In continued efforts, Disneynature has committed to carry on the “See OCEANS, Save Oceans” initiative by contributing a portion of sales to The Nature Conservancy through Disney’s Worldwide Conservation Fund for every Disneynature OCEANS Blu-ray Combo Pack or DVD purchased between October 19 and 25. As one of the world’s leading conservation organizations, The Nature Conservancy is widely recognized for its efforts to protect vital marine habitats.

OCEANS on Blu-ray Hi-Def will take viewers on a breathtaking and unprecedented high-definition journey to discover nature’s mysteries, showcasing creatures captured on film for the first time and state-of-the-art imagery of the colorful symphony that lives under the sea. With crystal clear picture, and theater-quality sound, OCEANS puts audiences in the very heart of the action, racing along amid a school of traveling tuna, leaping with dolphins and swimming shoulder-to-fin with whales that will entertain kids and parents alike.

What the Happily Blended Family Thought

First let me start by saying I have watched Oceans on DVD over and over again. My sons absolutely love this DVD! The video quality is amazing and we had fun learning about the ocean and seeing creatures we would not normally have a chance to see. I think my sons favorite part of the movie involved seeing the whales because they were in awe over the size! My four year old says to me “Mama look how big that whale is” and “that whale is huge”. I giggled a little bit because this is a kid who rarely shows interest in more than a video or computer game! The word huge is apparently his new favorite word for something that is large in size and that was cute too!

The bonus features include Make a Wave which is Disney’s friends for change music video featuring Joe Jonas & Demi Lovato. Our family is big on music so we enjoyed this bonus feature the best!

About Disneynature:

Overall Opinion

As a Mom who enjoys educational, documentary type videos I think this is a great film that the whole family can enjoy on movie night.


Filtrete Water Pitcher

waterpitcherToday I am excited to share a Filtrete Water Pitcher that was sent to me from Mom Central. For those who know me really well will know that I am super picky about my water! I do not drink my current well water and often am found at my mother’s home filling water jugs so that I can drink from her artesian well. I have always loved the water at my mother’s home and no other water has compared.

Now that I have this Filtrete water pitcher, I can enjoy fresh tasting water from the faucet at my new home because it helps the flavor be better than that from just the tap.  I know that eventually I will also want to test out the Filtrete Water Station because of the fact that I increase water consumption when I am able to grab a bottle of water over a cup of water, main reason being? My finicky cats enjoy getting into my open cup of water and do not enjoy drinking water from their fresh, clean water dish. With a bottle of water I don’t have to worry about my cats tipping the water over in the house!

This is a fantastic product that helps me drink my water at home, which means I don’t have to travel as much to my mother’s to fill water jugs and I can have more family time at home. With my son having nose bleeds from not only dry air but lack of hydration I am willing to use any new contraption to help increase his water consumption too!

Filtrete also offers an e-newsletter for busy parents like me to save money and you can sign up for Filtrete’s seasonal e-newsletter by clicking here. Remember to Like Filtrete on Facebook and follow Filtrete on Twitter to keep up to date with their latest happenings.

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Filtrete and received the water pitcher to facilitate my candid review.”
