Another Great Movie at a Great Price

We saw the Kit Kittredge: An American Girl (2008) Movie in the theaters and could not wait to purchase it on DVD when it was releases.  Really.  My daughter is 10 and I think that is the perfect age for this movie.  This particular movie takes place during the great depression which I thought was perfect timing considering the current economic situation of our country.  It was great to see my daughter's reaction to how much things have changed since then.  The Movie is rated G and a great family movie. currently has this movie on DVD at an excellent price!  The DVD is currently $6.49 and Blu-Ray $9.99.  This would make a great gift for a tween in your life.  To make it easy I have included the link to Amazon.  Just click and buy and I hope you enjoy this movie as much as we did.  If you have seen the movie feel free to share your comments.

Who is Protect-A-Bed?  I would encourage you to visit their site to read all about their products.  We've all probably heard or used the expression "Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite", but many don't consider it literally.  Luckily most of us will not encouter "bed bugs" but there are dust mites and a host of other allergens that can be trapped in our bedding.  Protect-A-Bed has a comprehensive line of products to address your bedding needs.  They even have waterproof matress pads which could prove very handy for older children with bedwetting problems and adults with incontinence.  Their products are also machine washable and dryable.

Express Yourself- Downy Simple Pleasures

I just created a scent and would love for you to pass it a long for friends and family to vote for.  The reason I chose the scent that I did is that I orchid is my favorite but I feel funny sending my husband to work smelling like an orchid.  I also like clean smelling scents and think this would be a great gender neutral scent.  Thanks!
