Baptism + Minted.com = Beautiful Sophistication

As some of you who read my personal blog know, I am LDS.
In the LDS church, children are blessed as infants and baptized at 8 years old.
Mormons feel this is the age that children can make the decision between right and wrong.

Guess whose 8?
That's right...Cheeks.

Of course, getting baptized is a big deal.
Hence...celebration.
Par-tay!

So...I checked out Minted.com
Oh my goodness...beautiful is an understatement.
They have it all.

From baptisms to kids parties to showers to weddings.
Matter of fact, not to get side tracked like I am apt to do, but they are offering a fabulous brand new collection of their new wedding invitations.  I am a sucker for beautiful invitations.  Especially since Bobster and I just went to the local yokel JOP & got married.  Nary an invitation was sent.  So I have wistful urges to throw a big shindig with gorgeous invitations, etc.  If I ever decide to do it, I am getting them from Minted.com

Ok, back to what I was discussing.
Told you show me something pretty & I am off on a tangent.

I found these great invitations that are, in my opinion, perfect for an 8yo boy:


Not babyish, yet old enough for a soon to be tween.

Plus I can pick the shape of the invite...scalloped edges, tag shape, square.  I thought rounded edges was just right.  Not to mention I love orange and blue together BUT you can pick from a bevy of colors.  Score!

I am also thinking of using this site for his birthday in August.  I am a huge sucker for paper products and Minted.com has it all!!!!

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
