As a dad that makes lunches for his kids I have gone through my good share of Peanut Butter over the years. I have gone through so many of the brands that you usually find in the Unites States, and some have been positive and some negative experiences. In my experiences I have to say that for us we are looking for both great taste and consistency, and some of the bigger-brands seem to lose this, along with freshness, along the way.

This is one reason I was very excited to try out Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter. My youngest daughter has been getting very interested lately in having peanut butter toast for breakfast in the morning which has amped up our peanut butter consumption lately, so trying something new was perfect for us as a family.

When I received the Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter, I first noticed that due to the freshness of this, they state on the outside of the container that you needed to store this upside down and that you needed to shake or stir the Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter before eating and looking at it from the outside you can see this as it looks a bit more liquefied than other brands might. Even though this is the case, once you open it up, stir it, you have the same consistency as you would typically get with other brands too.

Outside of the difference in regards to where the peanuts were coming from (Australia), you also can tell by looking at the ingredients that you are getting top quality peanut butter here! Even better though is the taste and overall consistency. After tasting this I believe that you will taste the difference immediately. It is hard for me to describe here, though I will tell you that both my daughters and I were completely impressed. We loved the flavor and it was super smooth.

If you have never tried Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter you should check out the four varieties that they have including the Smooth that I tried and let me know your own thoughts on this. I hope that you too will find that this is an amazing new find your family like I found that it is for mine!

Girls Unite, It’s Time For The Avengers: Age of Ultron!

#AvengersUnite
#AvengersUnite

I have always been a fan of comics. I grew up reading Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Avengers and a number of others. So you can probably guess that the past few years, with the huge number of Marvel/DC Comic based movies hitting the big screen has been an exciting time for me and for my family. It has been so exciting for me to be able to share my love of this world with my daughters, breaking down the stereotypes that some of society have placed in regards to who can or should like comics.

This May will be an exciting time in our home because of our love of comics. With MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron coming out, we already have watched the first The Avengers movie, and my girls are already speculating on whether one of the Avengers will be coming back after this movie and if not, who that might be. They also are very excited to have a new female superhero coming into the movie in the guise of the Scarlett Witch. My oldest knows that the Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver both have been good and evil characters in the comic books, we are all interested to see how they will be portrayed in the new movie, though the trailer makes them look very dark.

#AvengersUnite

Not only are we excited about this but we also have come to find when we go to the store that we also are seeing MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron food, toys and more at stores as we have been shopping lately. Of course, because my daughters are aware of the comics and the characters, having them see these superheroes connected to food and toys makes them even more excited about the movie to come. While sometimes this branding can be over-the-top, it is still effective and my girls have enjoyed seeing the characters too.

#AvengersUnite

During a recent trip to our local Walmart store we checked out all of the MARVEL The Avengers: Age of Ultron items. I was amazed to see many more items than I was expecting. While we were there we picked up a few to have some Avengers fun ourselves. We ended up choosing some of the collectible figurines. You will notice that we ended up picking Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye. My daughter chose these, and I was a bit surprised that she did, as I thought that she would have chosen the Scarlet Witch. As a father, I will say that I am a bit happy that she didn’t because the Scarlet Witch was in one of her more skimpy outfits and for a younger girl I think a more fully clothed superhero is more appropriate. The choosing of Hawkeye did not surprise me, as this is a character that she liked from the first movie. I was a bit surprised as he was in his purple outfit which is not something seen from the movie itself. In looking closer though I see now that the characters from this are not completely connected to the movie itself, but instead The Avengers universe instead.

#AvengersUnite

I also selected some of the new LEGO brick sets for The Avengers: Age of Ultron movie. I loved that we got a few of the superheroes in each set as well as villains too.  The sets that I picked up were easy to put together and worked well together too and allowed me and my daughters to have fun together using our imagination in some creative play together. My youngest daughter was the most excited when she saw that Iron Man was a part of one of the LEGO sets, as this was her favorite Avenger.

#AvengersUnite

We also picked up some snacks that we could have while we re-watched The Avengers movie. We picked up some Doritos as well as Cheez-Its and both were connected again to the movie too. I let the kids pick these, but I did tell that that we were going to make an Avengers Snack mix (See below recipe) to make this a bit healthier.

Avengers-Snack-Mix

Avengers Snack Mix

1              Family Style Box of MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron Cheez-It

1              12-15 oz canister of craisins

1              15-20 oz container of unsalted nuts (you choose the type)

2              Cups of dried papaya

2              Cup M&M’s

2              Cup White Chocolate Chips

 

Mix all of the items together in small individual ziplock bags. Hand them out to everyone for some healthy snacking fun!

 

As you can see we are very excited about the upcoming MARVEL The Avengers: Age of Ultron movie and for the next few weeks we will be waiting in anticipation for this to come out and if any of the things that I have heard as of late is true, this is going to be an amazing movie and having some toys and even food to keep the excitement alive is fun to experience with the whole family!

 

So my question for you? How big of a fan of The Avengers are you? Who is your or your kids’ favorite Avengers superhero? Let me know!

 

Signed, Sealed, Delivered Is A Wonderful Family-Friendly Show

Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Complete Series
 photo disclaimer2_zps8af35ac1.jpg

About the Series
Signed, Sealed, Delivered : The Series is a wonderful combination of romance, comedy and drama for the whole family. The ten one-hour episodes follow four postal workers, the POstables, who transform themselves into an elite team of Dead Letter detectives to track down intended recipients of undeliverable mail. Their missions take them out of the office and into an unpredictable world where redirected letters and packages can save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures by arriving late but somehow on time.

The team includes the group’s leader, charming Oliver O’Toole (Mabius), a man of faith who upholds traditional values in his life and work; Shane McInerney (Kristin Booth), a technophile who brings 21st century sensibility to the group; free-spirited, “girl next door” Rita Haywith (Crystal Lowe) who has a photographic memory; and lovable Norman Dorman (Geoff Gustafson), a master in conventional research methods. By the end, it becomes evident that the missions of the POstables aren’t just making an impact on the lives of others; they’re being changed, too.

Initially airing on the Hallmark Channel as an original movie, the season of “ Signed, Sealed, Delivered ” boosted the Hallmark Channel’s ranking as the #5 rated cable network on Sundays from 8-9 p.m. “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” is executive produced by Martha Williamson, best known as the executive producer of “Touched by an Angel” and beloved for her signature brand of family entertainment.

The narratives of the “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” franchise continue as an enhanced two-hour format on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. “Signed, Sealed, Delivered From Paris With Love” (wt) is slated to debut June 2015 and is the first of three “Signed Sealed Delivered” movies being produced for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. “Signed, Sealed, Delivered From Paris With Love” (wt) explores the mystery of love when Oliver’s estranged wife suddenly returns from Paris the same day he and his Postables team, Shane, Rita and Norman, deliver divorce papers to a happy couple.

My Take on the Series

My wife and I have been a big fan of Signed, Sealed, Delivered since it came out last season and we were very disappointed that it was taken off of the main Hallmark channel and moved to their premium Mysteries and Movies channel, as my carrier does not even have this, at least not yet. I was excited to be able to see that they put all of the first season into one DVD and was so glad that they did.

 

Signed, Sealed, Delivered is a family friendly series that I definitely would recommend sharing with the whole family. There are great messages of friendship, faith and love which for me, as a parent, I would like my daughters to experience and see. The writing is the series is solid and the characters are memorable, quirky and lovable , yes, even Oliver O’Toole too.

 

My family are also mystery lovers so it was nice to have a new mystery that unfolds with each episode. The series does follow something of a sequential order, so I would recommend watching them as such, the mysteries are stand alone, so you can catch up if you get out of order as well.

 

All-in-all this was a wonderfully made family show and this DVD really captures this and shares it with all viewers. I highly recommend Signed, Sealed, Delivered to all of you!

DVD Review – Mom’s Day Away

Mom's Day Away
 photo disclaimer2_zps8af35ac1.jpg

About the Movie
Stay-at-home mom Laura Miller (Bonnie Somerville) chose family life over a glamorous career. Her husband Michael (James Tupper), a workaholic realtor, eternally conducts business on his cell phone while her 17-year-old son (Iain Belcher) and 12-year-old daughter (Kaitlyn Bernard) are absorbed in their young life dramas. It’s Mother’s Day weekend and still nobody is paying attention to Laura’s needs. Excitement is injected into Laura’s life when her dazzling and affluent BFF Trish (Ona Grauer) shows up and whisks her off on an adventure-filled trip to a lavish resort.

Over this Mother’s Day weekend, Laura has an awakening, making up for lost time by overindulging in the resort’s luxurious offerings and rekindling her career aspirations. As Trish begins to reassess her own life choices during their time away, Laura considers that living her dreams won’t bring true happiness unless her family is along for the adventure.

My Take on the Movie
So what does a mom do? The list might include: laundry, cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, making lunches, gardening, carpooling, budgeting, organizing the vacations or outings, etc.
So what happens when a mom decides that her family does not appreciate her? She may take some time off and spend a weekend with a girlfriend who wants to pamper her. 

Any mom will enjoy this film. So many decisions the family had to make on their own and it was evident that their mom was horrible missed. It was interesting watching the family deal with the mom’s absence and then how they pulled together to clean the house , cook, etc. before the mom decided to return home.
This family realized they were in fact taking advantage of their mom and all the responsibilities she has for just about everything. It appears at the end of the movie that there is a family agreement for everyone to do their fair share.

Swiffer Shows That Dads Are Engaged & Helping At Home!

#SwifferDad
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

Too often in society there has been a stereotype portraying dads as not taking an active role in kids’ lives, but also not taking an active role in the running of the home. This is why I was so glad to see the new commercials that were recently released by Swiffer, as they are portraying dads in a whole new light and showing more of the reality in my opinion – or at least the reality in my own home. Below you will see the commercial, but in this you will see three dads that are cleaning, engaged and so much more. Through this commercial Swiffer is taking on this stereotype and I commend them for doing so as the reality is truly more of what they have shown in the commercial than not.

#SwifferDad

According to the Swiffer Cleaning Index Dads are pitching in nearly two time more than their dads did.  In fact roles have really shifted as half of Dads today say they do the lion’s share of the cleaning in their home, dividing chores with their significant other.

In my own home, my wife and I have always seen each other as equals. I cannot say that we always have been able to be equal when it came to everything around the home, but we always tried to share the responsibilities no one felt taken advantage of in anyway. Why was this important you might be asking? Well, for us, we found that if we were not sharing this responsibility that resentment would build up along with stress, and neither of us wanted or needed this in our lives.

#SwifferDad

With two active girls I have found that it is a constant challenge to keep the house clean and in the past, it has seemed to always be a half-day long process with buckets, mops, rags and more (yes we were old school) and it was something that I know that I always dreaded personally, and I think I could say the same of my wife too. This is why receiving the Swiffer Big Green Box on my doorstep was so awesome! This box was frilled not only with the Swiffer Wet Jet and refill pads, but also cleaner with Febreeze too (this stuff smells good). I broke out these products and first found that they were so easy to put together, but also use. What I loved most about the Swiffer Wet Jet was that it really helped me to be much more efficient at cleaning quickly and effectively. This was important to me as the more time that I have to spend at cleaning, the less time I can spend directly engaging with my kids. The Swiffer Wet Jet really opened me up to being able to spend more time with my kids because I did not have to worry about the amount of time it would take to clean our floors and it made our floors simply shine.

Swiffer actually sent me a second green box to give to another Dad friend. I dropped the box off today to my friend and left a note that said “I hope you like being a #Swifferdad”. I had to leave the box off at his house so I signed the note, so I am sure that I will get a call later. He will be surprised, but he also will probably give me a bit of grief about the gift too… but you never know! I just wish that I could be there to see his face, but I actually had to leave town today and because of this I wanted to at least get the Swiffer box to him as soon as I could!

#SwifferDad

As mentioned above below is the #SwifferDad video.  This video really captures well how hands-on dads are in today’s society. I love how this video has real Dads and kids talking and sharing together, and you get some true perspectives from the kids too. I also am including some behind the scenes video too that shows the video’s creative advisor, Anthony Anderson having some fun too. I love that Swiffer used Anthony Anderson as he is a hands on dad too who also cleans floors, handles carpools and more. On top of that the video was meaningful as it also featured a few dad bloggers that I know and admire too.

In the end I have come to find that with the Swiffer Wet Jet I am able to soak up more moments with my family and I am betting that my friend will have a similar experience too, that’s the #SwifferEffect they are working to share with all families!

The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: Power & Control

 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

2015-mitsubishi-outlander-sport

About the Car

For the 2015 model year, Mitsubishi Motors’ perennial best-seller – the eye-catching Outlander Sport 5-passenger compact crossover – receives some key aesthetic and engineering improvements that should help this dynamic crossover vehicle maintain its reign as the Japanese auto manufacturer’s #1-selling model.

Rated as an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) “Top Safety Pick” for 2014 and available in either 2WD or AWD – Mitsubishi Motors’ acclaimed driver-selectable, electronically-controlled All-Wheel Control (AWC) all-wheel drive system – and with a solid-shifting 5-speed manual or with a sophisticated continuously-variable transmission (CVT), other welcome improvements to the American-made 2015 Outlander Sport include:

  • New next-generation continuously variable transmission (CVT)
  • New Carbon audio panel trim (ES model)
  • New stylish-looking LED running lights (SE model)
  • New high-gloss piano black with silver accent audio panel trim (SE)
  • New thicker front door window glass for improved sound insulation (all models)
  • New next-generation fuel-saving Electric Power Steering (all models)
  • New rear quarter panel sound insulation for reduced road noise (all models)
  • New relocated heated front seat switchgear for easier accessibility (SE)

Also new for the 2015 Outlander Sport: A dynamic new Octane Blue exterior paint scheme, joining Labrador Black, Quick Silver, Mercury Gray, Rally Red and White Pearl, has been added to the colorful model lineup.

2015-mitsubishi-outlander-sport

Platform and Drivetrain: Sublime Engineering
A poised, comfortable ride and excellent maneuverability are always assured, thanks to the 2015 Outlander Sport’s well-engineered suspension system that consists of MacPherson struts with stabilizer bar up front and a multi-link set-up with stabilizer bar at the rear of the vehicle.

What’s more, for the 2015 model year, the very capable MIVEC variable valve-timing-equipped 148 horsepower DOHC 2.0-liter-based drivetrain receives numerous design and engineering enhancements.

Performance gets a boost from a next-generation continuously-variable transmission that now mimics a 7-speed automatic transmission. Not only does it provide better response, performance from a standing start, and a more unified feeling of acceleration, 2015 Outlander Sport models equipped with this CVT unit benefit from improved fuel economy at an estimated 25 mpg city/32 mpg highway/28 mpg combined (2WD models) and 24 mpg city/30 mpg highway/27 mpg combined (4WD models).*

Thanks to these impressive fuel economy numbers, the 2015 Outlander Sport is one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its class.

Other changes occurring under the hood of the 2015 Outlander Sport include the fitment of a smaller oil pump and reduced oil volume through the implementation of low viscosity engine oil.

Beyond the engine compartment, Mitsubishi Motors’ handsome 5-passenger compact crossover/SUV features an aerodynamically-efficient low-drag exterior body design that helps to contribute to fuel efficiency, as do other gas-saving technologies including a helpful ECO (CVT-equipped models) or a gearshift indicator light (5-speed manual-equipped vehicles) that lets the driver know when they are driving at their most efficient, along with a more efficient Electric Power Steering (EPS) system that helps reduce fuel consumption by doing away with the parasitic drag on the engine that comes from a conventional hydraulically-assisted power steering.

Other design improvements for the 2015 model year Outlander Sport include thicker front door glass and new sound insulation for the rear quarter panel section of the vehicle, leading to a reduction in the level of noise, vibration and/or harshness (NVH) experienced by the vehicle’s occupants.

2015-mitsubishi-outlander-sport

2015 Outlander Sport ES and SE Trim Levels
While it may be the entry-level model, the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport ES doesn’t skimp on welcome accessories and features that make life behind the wheel a little easier and more enjoyable. The ES trim level includes an aesthetically appealing Carbon audio panel trim and a rich-sounding 140-watt 4 speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with FUSE Hand-Free Link System® with USB port; heated side view mirrors; remote keyless entry with panic feature; leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob; cruise control with steering wheel-mounted controls; air conditioning with pollen filter; tilt and telescopic steering wheel; roof carrier plug-in accommodation; high-contrast meter with full-color display; and an anti-theft security alarm system.

Other items included as part of the comprehensive standard equipment package are P225/55R18 all-season tires wrapped around stylish 18-in. aluminum alloy wheels; chrome grille surround; split fold-down rear seatbacks; auto-off halogen headlights; and fuel-saving features including an ECO indicator light (CVT-equipped vehicles) light or a gear shift indicator (5-speed manual transmission-equipped cars) and an Electric Power Steering (EPS).

The 2015 Outlander Sport SE edition – the premium version of Mitsubishi Motors’ 5-passenger crossover/SUV – comes equipped with a bounty of upscale features that are normally found on vehicles at a much higher price point than the financially well-within-reach Outlander Sport SE. Among these are automatic climate control; FAST-key passive entry system; high-gloss piano black with silver accent audio trim panel; heated front seats; One-touch Start/Stop (OSS) engine switch; a 6 speaker 6.1-in. display touchscreen audio system with HD Radio® and SIRIUSXM® satellite radio with 3-month subscription; rearview camera; rain-sensing wipers; and Super-wide beam High-Intensity Discharge (S-HID) headlights with auto off/on control; stylish-looking LED running lights; and a relocated heated front seat switch for easier accessibility.

Comprehensive Safety/Warranty
Rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as a “Top Safety Pick” in 2014 or higher the previous three model years, every 2015 Outlander Sport model comes equipped with a plethora of important safety features and technologies: Active Stability Control (ASC) with Hill Start Assist (HSA); Traction Control Logic (TCL); a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS); anti-lock braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist; and a seven (7) air bag Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) with front air bags with passenger weight and driver’s seat position sensors, front seat-mounted side-impact air bags, and curtain side air bags with roll-over sensors.

An additional layer of occupant protection is afforded by Mitsubishi Motors’ the advanced Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) patented safety cell body construction system that absorbs energy to help provide protection to the vehicle’s occupants. This RISE safety structure technology is engineered into every vehicle in Mitsubishi Motors’ product lineup.

Furthermore, an available rearview camera system is also offered and provides additional piece-of-mind and awareness of one’s surroundings when backing up the vehicle.

Every 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport comes with a generous warranty that includes a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, a 7-year/100,000-mile anti-corrosion/perforation limited warranty, a completely transferable 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty, and a 5-year/unlimited miles roadside assistance program.

With its low price, outstanding fuel economy, distinctive styling, excellent safety rating and Mitsubishi Motors’ outstanding comprehensive warranty, the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is one of the stand-out vehicle values in the small SUV/crossover segment.

My Take On The Book

This is a precious book of stories gathered from men and women about their mothers. You will read about mothers as role models for their children, moms that rise to health challenges, and even moms who get into playful mischief. Moms can be cheerleaders, instill wisdom in their children, and they love and accept their children. Moms are our first teachers.
So many wonderful stories to read and think about. I would like to share one with you. It is Nancy Julien Kopp’s story called “Mom’s recipe for Life”. What a wonderful role model Julien’s mother was for her in her life. Her mom’s recipe was to smile and make conversation with people she met on the street, in line at the grocery store, where ever she was. Julien said it often embarrassed her, but as Julien became older she saw the gift of her mother’s recipe and began to follow the recipe herself. We  never know who may need that smile or just the recognition of a “hello”.
This is a book worth reading.  Remember your mother is only with you a short time. Appreciate her life lessons, let her know she is loved, and never take her for granted.
