Bring on 2013!!!

Wow we are about to say goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013!!! I can't believe how fast is year has gone! Christmas was here and gone so fast and now so is New Year's! 

What good happened to you in 2012? Bad? I don't have anything I can say horrible happened but I have had a decent happy year in 2012. I married my best friend and love of my life! I gained a daughter, I went from shared parenting to full custody of my son, I really got better at couponing, Detroit Tigers went to the World Series for the 2nd time since I've been born lol (even if we did lose!) and much more!


I became a better person this past year. I have a very happy family life. This is what I've always wanted! I donated a lot of food and other items. I really grew up. And I'm glad I did!


Look at all the new (old) toys that came out in 2012. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Furby!, Gak, Floam and more! So many toys that have came back out or are more popular again!


What is everyone doing tonight!? Anyone doing anything fun and exciting? We have the kids this year so we are taking them bowling! We reserved a package for 2 1/2 hours. Pizza, bowling, pop and fun! Got them,ids glow bracelets and necklaces! Then after we are going to my sister-in-law's house to hang with family for a bit! I'm super excited to take them bowling!


I want to wish everyone a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope everyone has a fun and safe night!

Perdue Oven Ready Chicken is bangin'!!

I was sent a Bzzkit with a free coupon for a free Perdue Oven Ready chicken to review. In my kit I also received coupons to pass out for others.

I give this chicken 10 thumbs up! It was so easy to make and tasted amazing!

You buy it right from the refrigerated meat section. You can either cook it then fresh or you can freeze it and cook it later. Well I didn't have it in my meal plan to cook that week so I put it in my freezer and cooked it this past week. ( a week later) ... So I figured you would have to defrost if before cooking, but nope! You can pull it from them freezer and cook right away!

It was so moist and juicy! There was even a ton of juice left over to make a gravy. Which they even give you directions n how to make a gravy!So I preheated the oven, cut open the package, and took the chicken (which was already seasoned and in a cooking bag) cut a slit, and put in baking dish. I cooked it for 2 hours and 45 minutes and it was done!

This chicken had such a great flavor! It was so simple a child could do it! (Obviously old enough to use an oven with an adult!) Its great for a full time working mom who wants to cook a nice meal for her family! It's so simple to prepare, cook, and cleanup!

Here is a picture of my Perdue Chicken after it was cooked. I forgot to take a picture of it before I cute it up lol.

I'm giving this a 10++++

Lucas begged and begged for Sylander's for Christmas. I heard good things about the game so I decided to give it a shot. It did seem confusing with all of the characters that they make for it. Different elements. I heard you need certain characters for certain parts of the game. So I was lost on what to exactly buy.

I bought Skylander's Spyro Adventure's for my Xbox 360. I just got him the starter pack. Since we did Christmas with Santa on Christmas Eve morning because Lucas would be with his dad Christmas morning I got to see the game played before I purchased anything else. Well ToysRus ended up having Skylander's buy one get one free. They are $10.99 a piece. So I got 4 for the price of 2. I have him those when he got back from his dads.

We are both hooked on this game! There are 7 elements so you should start with 7 different figures, since you need certain elements for certain areas of the game. Their are 32 Skylanders characters for the Spyro series. Then they recent,y came out with Skylander's Giants.

Eventually we will get that but probably not for a year. This will keep us plenty busy! It's a very fun game and story line. I love this game and am hooked myself! You can play one or two players which is nice since I get to play with Lucas and I can also play my own game while he's in bed! Lol.

So I highly recommend this game for everyone. Not just boys or kids but for girls and adults also! Very fun game for everyone!!
