Movie Review: Susan Boyle: An Unlikely Superstar

Movie Review!

Susan Boyle: An Unlikely Superstar
Rating: unsure - I think PG?
Running Time: 60 Minutes
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Documentary


My Review:
The title "Unlikely Superstar" is more than a perfect description of Ms. Boyle. Prior to getting married, I was obsessed with reality TV shows. I loved anything that featured people. I've always been a fan. When I was younger, my Nana lived with us. Whenever we would watch a reality TV show she would encourage us to get out there and "make some money by acting like a fool". :) Even though I had my supporting Nana, I never auditioned for any of the TV shows. You see, I lacked something that Susan didn't lack. Courage.

As I watched the documentary of Susan Boyle, I was amazed by two things. The first is her raw talent. Let's be honest, her singing voice is incredible! The second thing that struck me was her courage. How courageous she must have been to audition.  Think about it, who usually auditions for these things? Little girls with big dreams! By the time you are an adult the chances of one auditioning aren't exactly high.

Overall, I enjoyed watching this documentary.
Warning - there were some scenes with people smoking, and there may have been some light language. I honestly can't remember if there was any language. However, for my conservative readers I wanted to give you a fair warning. :)

The film is available on netflix through live streaming.

Hope your enjoy!

Our Visit to The Little Farm

If you live in the South Florida area and have young children, I recommend filling a car with some friends and family and heading down to Goulds for some fun at "The Little Farm".*
As a mom of young children I'm always searching the web for fun (free or inexpensive) adventures for our family. It was on one of these searches that I found The Little Farm. 
I was skeptical at first because it was 5.00 just to park the car, but... when you've been cooped up in your house with three kids for a few weeks you start to look for opportunities to get out. 
At The Little Farm you will find lots of animals to look at, a cute photo opportunity ($12.00), pumpkins, petting zoo ($4.00), butterfly garden (free), horse and pony rides ($3.00), a play area and food for purchase. According to the website, proceeds from the food and pumpkin purchases during the pumpkin patch event are given to charity.
Our family had a lovely afternoon playing on the farm. We decided not to go inside the…

Tips for taking your Toddlers to the Magic Kingdom - AFTER Bedtime!

Hiya Pals!

In an attempt to capture as many beautiful memories of the days when we traveled through Disney with three toddlers, I have brought my Youtube Channel back to life!

In my most recent vlog, I share several tips on how to have an amazing time in the Magic Kingdom with your toddlers after they are typically in bed. You can find three of the tips listed below.


Tip 1  Make sure children are well rested. Since we live about 5 hours from Walt Disney World, our children are often asleep most of the time we are driving. Since it's next to impossible to get them to go to sleep once we get to our hotel room, we opt for a few hours of fun in the parks. 
Tip 2 Have a plan.  We decided to grab fast passes for the Princesses and Peter Pan because those activities typically have a long line. In order to make the most of our evening, we only did things located inside Fantasy Land. This helped maximise our time inside the parks. 
Tip 3 Utilize the Baby Center!  We always head to the baby c…

MOM HACKS: Postpartum Hair Loss & Regrowth!

Remember when you were pregnant, and everything seemed to glow? 
If you, like me, find yourself sweeping up enormous amounts of hair from you floor, or constantly cleaning your shower drains and vacuum cleaners, fear not. 
You are NOT alone. 
Our hair goes through different cycles. There will be times when your hair is in a state of rest, and then will shed. According to what I've read, when you are not expecting, you loose about 100 hairs a day. However, once you become pregnant, your body slows down the cycles. Thus, keeping those 100 hairs nicely on your head.

Once your beautiful baby is born, and your hormones start to go back to normal... the cycle returns and your hair begins to fall. With all three of my pregnancies, this happened between 3-5 months postpartum. It's quite unfortunate that just about the time I was feeling like a human, and getting the hang of motherhood my hair started falling out.

Now that I've gone through this process three times, I thought I'…
