Call Me A Wanna Be Teenager, I'm Fine With It...

But I am really looking forward to seeing this movie:

We are huge Miley Cyrus fans in this house and the storyline of "The Last Song" looks ADORABLE! I get the warm fuzzies from watching the preview and I hope that the movie is just as sweet & charming! I'll let you know. I have to talk "the husband" into taking me to see it!

What do you think? Looks cute, right? It opens in theaters today! Are you going to see it? Let me know! I don't want to feel like the only "30 something" that is excited to see a teenie bopper flick (but maybe I am).

4 Troops CD Would Be The Perfect Present For Those Military Mom's Out There This Mother's Day!

Here's a CD you're going to want to buy for every MILITARY "MOM" out there this Mother's Day! This group is a collaboration of 4 individual VETERANS (with true war stories to tell) that are taking their interest in music and their cause to a higher level. Meet "4 Troops".The album consists of well-known positive pop and country songs and some new songs. All of the songs take on a special meaning in the context that they are performed by these four combat heroes.

I was not paid or compensated to post about this music group!

With Mother's Day Right Around The Corner...What Can You Get Mom Or Grandma That's Like Nothing You've Gotten Before?

Since I am in charge of purchasing presents for every holiday for every family member...sometimes I get stumped on ideas for things like "Mother's Day". I always love to give personal gifts from the heart and have been known to buy jewelry (they got tile necklaces last year), flowers, etc. You get the idea... This year, however, my Mother In Law is going to get something different for Mother's Day thanks to Museware Pottery! This year, she's getting a personalized (with all four of my kids names on it) "Grandma" plate (sent to us free of charge for this review). It's AWESOME!! Absolutely awesome! I seriously teared up when I saw it. Hand painted with "We (Heart) Grandma" in the center...all around that, it has my kid's names handwritten in a script writing. I love this for many reasons! One, I know she's going to use this for many, many years to come and when she does, she's always going to think about my kids (no matter how old they are or where life takes them). Secondly, she has a ONE OF A KIND piece of art work that will not only make her feel LOVED and SPECIAL, but my kids are going to love (and feel special) when we visit and she uses it!Each piece is stamped to show it's authentically from their "Everyday Collection" of Museware Pottery. Plus, it shows the # it was in production. I guess you could consider it a collector's item (of sorts).

They not only make Grandma's Plates, they offer Personalized Hand painted Pottery for all occasions and every member of the family.

Regardless what you're looking for, I know that MuseWare Pottery's products are going to be something you're going to cherish for years to come. Made with pride, love and expertise...these products are built to last.

My Son Got A Lot Of Attention Wearing His TOUGH GUYS And MUDPIES Tie Tank...Have A Look! You're Going To Want One Too!

My boys are 100% boy! If you met either of them (one is 8 and one is 1), you would agree with me. They look like boys, they play like boys, they eat like boys, etc. you get the idea! I also love to dress them like boys...with a CUTE touch (as long as I can get away with it). YOU HAVE TO CHECK OUT THIS STORE:
It's the BROTHER STORE to:

They sent us the most adorable tank for our 1 year old. It has an MANLY tie sewn on it. Unlike other tees and tanks I've seen like this...this is almost like an actual tie. It's not completely sewn around the edges to the tee.

So he can actually lift it up and play with it. Because the tank is black, I think it makes the tie stand out even more, which draws attention immediately to how CUTE it is!

And the MOTORCYCLE & Flame Design is just 100% boyish! I LOVE IT! It's perfect for my "Bad To The Bone" Lil' man!
Just to see what kind of attention we would get when we wear this shirt out, I put it on him to go to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner. I spiked his little Mohawk and got him all ready and let me tell you...I don't think a single person passed by our table without making of him. It had to be the shirt! I think he's darling on his own, but with a little tee like this, who wouldn't stop to make a comment on how ADORABLE he looked?
*
Please stop by Bling Around The Rosie's Website and look at all the "TOUGH GUY & MUDPIES" tees and tanks they offer! I have a feeling you might be buying one for your little tough guy too! If you use the code: boredmommy you'll receive 15% off your order!

A Little Bit Of Softness And Luxury Make For One Happy Boy...Thanks To CottonAge! Enter This Great Giveaway!

My oldest son loves to be comfortable! When I say comfortable, I mean, he loves to basically strip down to his skivvies when he's lounging around home. Even in the dead COLD of winter...or after a bath. Because of this, I am always trying to offer him other options for covering his body and keeping himself warm and cozy too.CottonAge offers amazing 100% Natural Turkish Cotton Bathrobes (for adults and children) and all different types of towels Towels. Their products are not only amazing, but reasonably priced too! So I couldn't pass up the offer to try out their CottonAge children's terry bathrobes (sent to us free of charge for this review) on one of my kids. When it arrived and was bright blue, it was obvious that it was perfect for only one of my children (because the baby is way to small) and he's truly the one that could use it the most. This bright blue Hooded Terry Velour bathrobe is AWESOME! It's soft, heavyweight and warm. Our son immediately was attracted to the quality of the robe and how luxurious he felt wearing it. In fact, he liked it so much, he wouldn't take it off...until right before bed. This morning he got up and immediately put it on. I think we may have found a cure for his non-clothing issues. YES! Thank you CottonAge!CottonAge is so convinced you're going to be equally impressed with their products, they are offering a giveaway of 1 Adult Waffle Weave Spa Bath Robe (which by the way the Marriott uses at their hotel) to (1) Lucky One Bored Mommy Blogspot reader. This reader could be you...if you enter below!

1st - Tell me what other product you'd be interested in on the
CottonAge website

Thank you CottonAge. Our son loves his new luxurious bathrobe and I think we may have solved (at least for now), his need to be less then dressed around our house.

PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY...Remove Your Name & Info From Spokeo

There is a new website I learned about tonight that I want to share with my readers. It's basically an ONLINE search tool for people. Pulls up all kinds of information on just about everyone! NO JOKE! It's called: It's legit and you will pull up just about all your own personal information if you search your name. I did mine & my husband's and proceeded, very quickly to have it being processed to be removed from the site.


To do this, follow these simple steps:
To remove Phone/Name Listings:
1. Locate the listing you want removed
2. Copy the URL. The URL can be found on the top of your browser and should look something like:
http://www.spokeo.com
3. Go to
http://www.spokeo.com/privacy
4. Paste the URL from step 2
5. Provide your email address (required to verify that you are not an automated bot)
6. Check your Inbox for the confirmation email, and click on the link on the bottom to complete removal process
7. The directory listing will become flagged and should be removed within 1 business day


Just thought I'd give you the heads up! This was disturbing to me! It's much to easy for people to breach your privacy and it's so open online. PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY and remove yourself from this website immediately!

Sesame Street Safari Of Fun Premiers At Busch Gardens On March 27th And I Wish Our Family Could Be There!

It is my hopes that someday (in the near future) our family will get to visit and experience all that this fun new area has to offer Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. I've never been to Florida (or Busch Gardens), but have heard fabulous things and with all the exciting places to visit...this is a "family hot spot" for sure!
Here's a little bit of the cool facts and some pictures from this awesome new area of Busch Gardens (that people can start visiting on March 27th):

Sesame Street Safari of Fun is filled with kid-size rides, cool water fun, shows and memorable adventures that celebrate the spirit of Africa as Sesame Street and Busch Gardens unite to create a signature attraction found nowhere else.

Sesame Street Safari of Fun will provide kid-size rides aplenty to delight kids and kids-at-heart. One highlight is a new junior roller coaster designed for parents and children to ride together. “Air Grover” is full of mini-dives and twisty turns as families soar through the Sahara. “Oscar’s Swamp Stomp” provides cool water fun, and “Bert & Ernie’s Watering Hole” is a wet adventure filled with bubblers, geysers, jets, dumping buckets and more. “Big Bird’s 123-Smile with Me” photography studio gives kids the chance to share a hug and a smile with Sesame Street friends, and musical performances bring safari tales to life. The new destination for family-friendly adventure replaced Land of the Dragons and doubled its size to 2.5 acres.
In addition to the rides and play areas, families can watch their favorite characters on the big screen. Sesame Street presents “Lights, Camera, Imagination!” runs daily in the park’s 4-D theater, located in Timbuktu. The movie features Elmo, Cookie Monster, Big Bird and other lovable Sesame Street characters trying to save the Sesame Street Film Festival. Their adventures are brought to life with zany 4-D gags and special effects like wind, water and jump-out-of-your-seat surprises.
Families can share breakfast or lunch with Elmo and friends on select days at an outdoor dining facility in Sesame Street Safari of Fun. Fill up on hugs from everyone’s favorite characters, delicious food served buffet-style and family together-time during these unique dining experiences. The menu includes items sure to please both adults and kids alike! And fans of Sesame Street can celebrate their birthdays at Sesame Street Safari of Fun. From a Dine with Elmo to an exclusive party for a group from 20 to 50 that includes front of the line access to Air Grover and reserved seating for the daily show, Sesame Street Safari of Fun is the new destination for family friendly birthday parties. For more information on birthday parties, visit SesameStreetSafariOfFun.com.

Special event dines are offered throughout the year, too. From celebrating moms to Muppets, there’s a party each month to celebrate characters’ birthdays as well as holidays. Check out SesameStreetSafariOfFun.com each month to see what’s new on the event calendar.

Sesame Street Safari of Fun expands upon the variety of unique experiences Busch Gardens offers. With thrilling rides, award-winning shows and exotic up-close animal encounters, Busch Gardens provides unrivaled excitement for guests of every age
.
Looks like fun, right? If you're in that area and have the chance to check it out...I'd love to hear what you think! I'm sure our viewers would love to live vicariously through you as well!
