Zootopia Comes to Blu-ray June 7! #zootopia

Disney's Zootopia


I have a five year old who is anxious for the release of Zootopia to Digital HD and Blu-ray™ and Disney Movies Anywhere June 7!  We missed it when it was in theaters and AK has been begging to see it.   Every time the commercial came on tv or she saw anything related to the film, she would literally yell "ZooTOPIA!"  So June 7th just can't get here quickly enough.

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything.

 But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”).

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ (WDAS) comedy-adventure, “Zootopia” has broken records worldwide earning more than $900 million at the global box office to date. The best reviewed movie of 2016, critics and audiences around the world have fallen in love with the wonderfully innovative animal metropolis of “Zootopia” and the comedic chemistry of rookie rabbit officer Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) and scam-artist fox Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman).

It’s been called one of the best buddy cop comedies in years! Viewers will not only be able to enjoy the vibrant world of Zootopia and reunite with their favorite characters, but also discover more about the evolution of this extraordinary tale through in-depth bonus offerings. The runaway hit arrives home on June 7 via Digital HD, Blu-ray™ and Disney Movies Anywhere.




Can't get enough Zootopia?

Planted with Hope by Tricia Goyer & Sherry Gore {Book Spotlight} #amishfiction #sponsored

I received a copy of Planted with Hope by Tricia Goyer & Sherry Gore.  All opinions are my own.


Planted with Hope Tricia Goyer & Sherry Gore


Readers of this blog may know that I enjoy reading Amish fiction, as it gives me a little insight into their community.  (I've always been fascinated with the Amish and their more simple way of life. Now that I live close to Amish country, I have the opportunity to get more of a glimpse into their culture) You may also know that I am on Tricia Goyer's launch team and have the opportunity to read many of her latest books.  

The latest title on my spring reading list is the 2nd book in the Pinecraft Pie Shop series:  Planted with Hope by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore.

Although I haven't read the first book, I've been able to follow the story on its own so far.

Did you know that there are Amish folks in Florida?   I didn't, and I am enjoying learning more!  You'll want to check out the recipes in the back of the book as well.


About the Book:  

When Hope Miller is offered the plot of land behind the Me, Myself, and Pie shop to start a garden, she jumps at the chance. Finally—some space away from her four sisters! But everyone in town seems to have an opinion about what she should grow and how she should grow it. When the widower schoolteacher, Jonas Sutter, asks if his students at the Amish school can help turn the plot into a community garden, Hope only halfheartedly agrees, wondering if she will ever get the peace and quiet she craves. And will she get anything to grow?

The stories of friendship, community, and unexpected love within these pages will plant real seeds of hope within your heart.


Where to Buy:

In bookstores and on Amazon $14.87 (paperback)

Orkin Rollins INC supplied these materials to me as well as the giveaway prize. All opinions are my own. 

Can you believe that summer is almost here?  That means picnics, baseball games, barbecues and all the fun of enjoying the great outdoors with your family. 

There’s one thing no one likes about being outdoors, though: mosquitoes! They not only are a nuisance, but they also pose potentially serious health risks (especially all of that news lately with the Zika virus).

Fortunately, the experts at Orkin study the science of mosquitoes and other pests closely in order to better tailor plans that help keep them out of your home this summer.
To help you better prepare yourself and your family to fight the bite, Orkin presents the “Buzzer Beater” app, which features its deep scientific knowledge of mosquitoes.

• Watch the “How to Deal With Mosquitoes” & “Do Mosquitoes Prefer Adults over Children” videos, as well as the rest of Orkin’s How-To video series, to get the most up-to-date knowledge on dealing with pesky home invaders.

I am looking forward to summer, but not dealing with mosquitoes.  I'm incredibly sensitive to mosquito bites (I already deal with horrible eczema and so do my girls) and dread being outside when they are.  I learned a lot about mosquitoes by taking the Orkin quiz and I think you will too!
