Alice Through the Looking Glass ~ Bring the Journey HOME! #ThroughTheLookingGlass #DisneyAlice

Links to this post
This is one Disney movie that I've been waiting for ever since watching this spectacular film in the theater a few months ago. Alice Through the Looking Glass is truly amazing and a movie that keeps you not only intrigued but sitting on the edge of your seat throughout the entire film. It's awesome!

In "Alice Through the Looking Glass," the all-star cast from the 2010 blockbuster is back with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter who is desperately searching for his family; Anne Hathaway as Mirana, the kind and mild-mannered White Queen; Helena Bonham Carter as Iracebeth, the short-tempered, big-headed Red Queen and Mia Wasikowska as Alice, the heroine at the heart of the story. Sacha Baron Cohen joins the ensemble as Time, a magical being that is part human, part clock, and the late Alan Rickman ~ to whom the film is dedicated ~ is the voice of Absolem, the blue Monarch butterfly who metamorphosed from the blue caterpillar "Alice in Wonderland."

Wyndham Houston West Energy Corridor ~ Home Away from Home!

Links to this post
Traveling to different destinations, even if only for a short road trip, has become one of my favorite things do and one city that I really enjoy visiting is Houston. This booming metropolis is just a short drive from my home and is overflowing with events and activities for people of all ages. With the Houston Zoo, the aquarium, and so many other attractions available, Houston is an ideal spot for a fun road trip. Plus there's nothing quite like an amazing staycation to relax and get back on track! 

On one of my more recent trips, I stayed at the Wyndham Houston West Energy Corridor Hotel. This hotel has actually been a "Wyndham Hotel" for about four years, with a $12 million dollar renovation under it's belt, including the renovation of all guest rooms, all public spaces, the Park Grille Restaurant, pool and jacuzzi areas, a complete elevator modernization, new HVAC and domestic water line risers throughout the hotel and almost a million dollars in the Physical Plant which modernized much of the operations equipment. Needless to say, this hotel has done a thorough upgrade and it definitely shows!

Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator ~ Eliminates the Toughest Laundry Odors! @FebrezeInWash

Links to this post
We all have those times when our laundry is beyond stinking and full of odors, right? I have two young boys so at any given time my their clothes can be so bad that I wonder if a regular laundry detergent will be enough. I'm also a stickler for fresh smelling towels and even though I wash, use a fabric softener and fabric softener sheets, they seem to smell like mildew...YUK!

My Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator Samples!
I recently received a sample of something new from Febreze...the In-Wash Odor Eliminator and I can honestly say, it works GREAT! I not only used it with a load of towels but also with some really smelly blankets that were involved in a doggy accident. I was seriously considering just throwing the blankets into the trash but decided to give the new Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator a try...Awesome! Needless to say the blankets are still around and doing fine and my towels came out of the wash with a nice fresh scent and not a trace of the smell of mildew.

Does Your Drink Choice Reveal Your Personality Type?

Links to this post
You walk into a bar, stroll up to the counter and spot the person of your dreams sipping on a drink. What beverage do you imagine them drinking?

To better explore this question, Budweiser launched the Budweiser "First Impressions" National Survey ~ a fascinating survey of 2K Americans (ages 21+) that asked respondents to match common bar drinks (beer, wine, champagne, cosmopolitan, margarita, and gin and tonic) with perceived personality traits from the Five Factor Model (agreeable, conscientiousness, extraversion, neuroticism, and openness to experience).

Is it really true that Budweiser drinkers seem more confident and wine drinkers seem more cautious?
