**GOLDEN SHOES debuts on DVD & Digital HD** #ad #spon

**I received a copy of this movie for review purposes only, no other compensation is offered, all opinions in this review are my own.**

Available October 6th.

GOLDEN SHOES, a feel good movie for the whole family starring Dina Meyer, Eric Roberts, David DeLuise, Christian Koza, Montel Williams, Vivica A. Fox & John Rhys-Davies, debuts on DVD and On Demand October 6 from Anchor Bay Entertainment, which is now in its 20th year.

About movie:
As long as he could remember, eight-year-old Christian Larou (Christian Koza) dreamed of being a great soccer player like his idol, Cristiano Ronaldo. When his father is deployed to Afghanistan and his mother is hospitalized, he pours himself into the game he loves. With the help of some very special shoes, can Christian lead his team to the championship, inspire an entire nation, and bring his family together again?

My thoughts:
I felt this was an amazing movie for the entire family. The young boy Christian longs to fill his life long dream while still being on top of his family in times of sickness, health and absence. The array of actors involved in this film really set this movie in action(as I am not a Montel fan I felt he played a significant member of the cast) and gave it the depth to keep my families interest. The Golden Shoes do not lead his team to victory but instead his heart and mind do but I love the portrail of something magical in his minds idea of sadness and way to overcome. If you believe it will come true.

Hormel September Box Feature w Recipe Ideas #HormelFamily #spon

I was chosen a few months ago to work with the #HormelFamily of bloggers and I have to say it has always been an amazing adventure of trying new products and tried and true that I have used in the past. I could not believe how many products in my pantry are associated with the Hormel Family of products and before I became involved I just did not know how much this family put into its name.  This month I decided to show you a recipe as well as a quick breakfast idea using 4 ingredients that can be a filling yet satisfying breakfast for that busy day. *I was provided with Hormel family products to review with my family all opinions of said products are my own and receipt of product does not promise a positive review*

I used this very tasty Herdez Salsa for breakfast Pita rolls for a new spin on breakfast. I am not a huge salsa on eggs kind of person but this was amazing. The salsa is chunky with a little touch of heat. To give you an idea of what I tried this is a store bought pita toasted, egg and sausage topped with a tablespoon of salsa made for a quick breakfast and very filling.

Chicken Fajitas for BREAKFAST :) Yes I had this for breakfast one morning because I am just obsessed with this salsa that came in my September box. While out shopping I came across these Diced Serrano Peppers and just could not pass them up for a dinner or better yet a breakfast idea.
2lbs- chicken breast cut into strips
1-bell pepper
1-red pepper
1-yellow onion
(all three cut into strips)
1 packet fajita mix or taco seasoning
1cup water

oil bottom of pan, toss in chicken-cook about 5-7 min till no longer pink, add cut veggies, seasoning mix and water -simmer 5min or until the veggies are to your liking. Heat tortillas, spread your filling top with sour cream, cheese and with your favorite Herdez Salsa. ENJOY!!

Fajitas are perfect for breakfast or dinner and are super easy to make. Do not be afraid to try any variation you like while cooking using Hormel products it is all so easy.

Thank you to Hormel for providing me with family friendly products.

“Considering Windowing Tinting-- The Benefits it can Provide your Home” #ad #spon

Considering Windowing Tinting? The Benefits it can Provide your Home

Window tinting is not just for your car. In fact, you can tint your home’s windows to create warmth and natural lighting without obstructing the beautiful outdoor view. Tinting also provides your home with a slew of benefits that you and your family will enjoy. Before you get estimates today on new windows, consider the positive aspects of window tinting.

Lower Cooling and Heating Costs
Heat gain and heat loss through untreated windows leads to an increase in utility bills. Installing window tinting to your home makes your home more energy efficiency, thus lowering your total cooling and heating costs. In fact, some window tints could save you up to 50-percent on your home’s cooling costs. 

Heat and Glare Reduction
Traditional windows allow for an excessive amount of heat to enter your home. Window tints not only block and reduce heat, it also plays a huge role in eliminating most glare. Without all that distracting glare, you can work on your computer or watch television more enjoyably. And since most tinting is made from thin material, you won’t even know the window tint is there. 

Reduces Harmful Ultraviolet (UV) Rays
Artwork, fabrics and furnishings can all fade when exposed regularly to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Unfortunately, un tinted windows let the damaging UV rays fill your home. Window tinting can block up to 99-percent of UV rays, which protects the color and look of your artwork, fabrics, furnishings and carpets while also protecting the health of your family.

Alternative to Window Replacement
If you’re on a tight budget but would love to upgrade your windows, why not consider window tinting. Window tint is an affordable option to expensive window replacement. In fact, window tint has many benefits over window replacement, including cost effectiveness and time required for installation. With that said, however, window tinting isn’t a miracle worker and shouldn’t be used to treat deteriorating or damaged windows. 

Protect your Family from Glass Shards
When the glass from your windows break – such as during a storm or accident – it can pose a real hazard to those living inside the home. Window tinting, however, can act as a barrier that holds the broken glass in place. There are even some window tinting consider safety films that helps to make your windows more break resistant. 

Window tinting isn’t right for everyone and every situation. That is why you should consult with a professional tinting company for more information.
