Mom Win

Movie Day! 

Tonight is the perfect night to have a movie night! It’s pouring down rain and we are all under the weather. So here is our favorite family movies!

Momma’s Favorite: 

  1. Beauty and the Beast – I loved the cartoon version and the latest version is just as good. My peanut and I saw it the first weekend it came out. 
  2. Lion King– Let’s face it Lion King is a classic. I know all the words and nobody knows sadness and triumph like Simba. 
  3. Harry Potter– I love me some Harry Potter. I have seen them all and still have every book. I have watched them all several times. I can’t get my kids into them. 😭
  4. Land Before Time– I am sure I’m showing my age here but Little Foot and Duckie have a special place in my heart. 
  5. Frozen- I only love Frozen for Olaf. I like “Let it Go” but “Summer” is so cute and Olaf is great. Who doesn’t love a snowman!? 

Peanuts Favorites ( As explained by her)

  1. Frozen- It’s fun to watch. The Ice is pretty. Elsa is the best.
  2. Moana- It’s a fun movie. Moana saved her village and Maui is funny.
  3. Beauty and the Beast- Belle saved her daddy. Chip and his momma were funny. The Beast was mean but Belle made him be nice.

Dj’s Favorite Movies (Grunted out by him in a very annoyed fashion)

  1. Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children- It’s kinda scary, but the kids have  different powers.
  2. Lego Batman- Batman is grumpy and a loaner. Robin was funny.
  3. Secret life of pets- It has talking animals. Snowball was my favorite. He was tough and funny. 

On our movie day we have watched Moana, Miss. Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children and Secret Life of Pets. These are our favorites although I enjoy watching all movies. There is few things better for a rainy sick day than a good movie. What are some of your favorites?

Our Vacation at Myrtle Beach South Carolina

(Post Contains Link or Links to Websites I used) 

Since I’ve had kids my biggest regret was not being able to take family vacation just them and me. Well I’ve worked seven days a week for the past three months and we’ve finally been able to go on vacation!! I must say that I enjoyed myself and it was worth every penny! 

We stayed four days three nights at the Reef Resort in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. We had a suite on the 10th floor that had an awesome view. I used Booking.com and got a great rate on the suite! They also provided me with details on attractions close to us. I will use them for every trip from now. For a single mom on a tight budget they made it possible for us to take this trip.

We were seconds away from the most active part of the main strip on Ocean Blvd. The main strip on Myrtle Beach has something for everyone. I had to get the kids on the Sky Wheel! A huge Farris wheel that gives a spectacular view of Myrtle Beach.

Perhaps my favorite attraction on the strip had to be Family Fun Kingdom. It had the charm of a beachside boardwalk, old school feel of a carnival but thrill of an amusement park. It was absolutely free to get in, so if you don’t like the rides but want to spend the day with the family who is riding, you’re not wasting any money. They have deals on all day passes with unlimited rides as well as books of tickets if you only want to ride a few rides. Getting to take my kids here brought me back to my childhood. The swings, tilt a whirl, the games and energy of Family Fun Kingdom was nostalgic for me. I would go a thousand more times. 

A few miles off the strip was Broadway at the Beach. Which is another boardwalk filled with fun things to do. We went to Ripley’s Aquarium and ate at the Key West Grill. At Ripley’s Aquarium we got to pet sharks and Sting Rays and travelled through the tunnel of sharks. The kids had fun petting the sea creatures and even learned the proper way to pet a Jelly Fish. Key West grill was delicious and if you ever go there I would recommend the Voodoo Juice, it’s a mommy drink only, it was strong but good. 

I worked seven days a week for three months to ensure we had enough to go down there and splurge. Myrtle Beach had so many family, attraction and group deals, we got to enjoy a tremendous amount for reasonable prices. It was a family friendly environment that had something for everyone, even my 17 year old. For our first vacation I loved it and was very proud of achieving my goal. I would recommend Myrtle Beach to everyone and can’t wait to go back!!
