Sound of Freedom FREE Movie Ticket Giveaway


I thought Sound of Freedom was going to be difficult to watch, only because it brings to light the atrocities associated with the trafficking of children. It is based on the true story of a federal agent, who in the regular practices of his job, saved a boy who was being trafficked. Of course, such scenarios tug at your heartstrings and make you feel sick. 

The concepts were hard, for sure, but it is tastefully created so that you don't have to endure what is implied, and this is a wonderful movie. "Wonderful" for the storyline, but I also use that word because it does bring an awareness to the viewer of how fast this crime is growing and why. The answers are not pretty, but things cannot grow in the light as well as they can in the dark, so awareness matters.

Barbiecore Stationery from Pen Heaven

Disclosure: I received a sample to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

There's a lot of anticipation for the new Barbie moving coming out in July and an uptick of people loving pink. I've ALWAYS loved pink, and while I may or may not see the Barbie movie (I do like Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling), I do love all the pink pen and stationery available at Pen Heaven

Wordless Wednesday: Snoopy Who?


Another that I found on social media and it made me laugh.
Many of my high school students wouldn't understand (hence the post title). 

Here's the cartoonist's website if you want to take a look. 
I looked him up after seeing his name on the drawing. 

He's very talented. 
Makes me think of our beloved Wombania
 (if you know, you know! Hi Binky!)

And now my WORDLESS Wednesday isn't very 'wordless,' is it?

UPDATE: for those who didn't realize, 
Snoopy used his house for all 3 things. 

Embracing Simplicity Can Help You Unwind

Disclosure: I was provided samples items or a discount to use towards the purchase of discussed items. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Welcome to a blog post where we delve into the curious phenomenon of juggling multiple tasks simultaneously and thriving in the chaos. Yes, it may seem strange, but I know there are more of you out there who share this peculiar trait, right? However, even the most adept multitaskers among us occasionally find ourselves in need of decompression. We all do! And when that moment arrives, my personal retreat to tranquility lies in embracing simplicity. Picture a blissful bubble bath or a soothing shower, followed by slipping into my cherished Hello Mello satin jammies. Adding a touch of relaxation with a delightful fragrance (because who doesn't adore fragrances?), I might then embark on an activity with no educational or work-related value—a moment that is exclusively and unapologetically for me. Often, this involves treating myself to a purifying face mask or indulging in the selection of a stunning nail color, allowing me to pamper myself with a mini manicure and pedicure. These cherished moments of self-care serve as a simple yet powerful means of rejuvenation, effectively refreshing the mind, body, and spirit.

Sound of Freedom in Theaters July 4th


Every time we go to the airport we hear regular announcements on the intercom warning about child trafficking. I'm always a bit taken aback. Is it that prevalent that they have to keep announcing it? It's unnerving to me. And it's ugly to look at... but if it's not looked at and brought to light, won't it just continue? God bless those who step up to do their part to help. Nothing is more precious than a child. 

Sound of Freedom, based on the incredible true story, shines a light on even the darkest of places. After rescuing a young boy from ruthless child traffickers, a federal agent learns the boy’s sister is still captive and decides to embark on a dangerous mission to save her. With time running out, he quits his job and journeys deep into the Colombian jungle, putting his life on the line to free her from a fate worse than death. #SoundOfFreedomMIN

Wordless Wednesday: Never Mind the Over/Under Debate...


This makes the over/under debate seem insignificant.

Atrocious, but it still gave me a chuckle.

Thank you, social media! 😅
