Shark Week is Here!!

I love nothing more than sitting by the ocean, taking in the sights, the smells, closing my eyes to listen to the water move gently, forcefully. There is something interestingly calm and relaxing about the crashing waves. Who doesn’t like lounging in a beach chair near the water and looking out into everything…and nothing. But what lurks underneath utterly freaks me out!

The great blue ocean, sharks, the unknown. I want nothing to do with it! You won’t catch me on a cruise, out boating, nope, not me!! I was forced into watching Shark Week a few years ago and was disgusted…and then intrigued. And every year I set aside some time to marvel in the mystery of these giant sea animals. Along with my fascination with my creatures has come my daughter’s love for seeing sharks in action, which I wasn’t prepared for!

It’s that time again, it’s Shark Week and as the Discovery Channel kicks-off their annual Shark Week this Sunday, August 12th, Disney Pixar would like share a very special message: Fish are Friends!


And who doesn’t love Finding Nemo and Anchor, Bruce & Chum! If you’ve got shark enthusiasts in your house, be sure to check out these Shark facts!

The Lorax is awesome & a Stonyfield Giveaway!

The folks over at Stonyfield sent my daughter and I to see the wonderful movie The Lorax in 3D this weekend. I’m sure by now we’ve all seen a commercial or ad for this wonderful movie, and I’m glad to say that it sure did live up to all the hype!
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

From the graphics to the message, the movie was one of the best kid’s movies I’ve seen in a long time. It wasn’t just about social responsibility it was about greed, manipulation, confidence, and the environment. It made me think a lot about my role in society and how I may be helping or hurting the environment. It’s great because my daughter left wanting to plant seeds and spend time with the trees!
