It’s time to get evenand take girl power to a whole new level with THE OTHER WOMAN, debuting on Blu-ray & DVD July 29. Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann as the leading ladies and newcomers Kate Upton and Nicki Minaj bringing the jokes left and right, ladies all over better be ready for the perfect movie to end their summer in style!

Cameron Diaz leads a knockout cast in this irreverent comedy about love, lust and the laws of karma. New York attorney Carly Whitten (Diaz) is nobody’s fool. So when she accidentally discovers that her too-good-to-be-true boyfriend Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is married, she’s less than thrilled. Not only that, she and Mark’s wife Kate (Leslie Mann), learn about yet another mistress (Kate Upton)! Great boyfriends are hard to find, even in the movies. To prepare you for the release of The Other Woman, we have made a list of the top ten boyfriends that Hollywood films have to offer.

In celebration to the movie making its way on DVD and Blu-ray, here are a few amazing movie boyfriends that not only makes Mark look worse, but guys that have made a way to our hearts:

1. Noah Calhoun- The Notebook “So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday.”

2. Jack Dawson- The Titanic
“Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me... it brought me to you. And I'm thankful for that, Rose. I'm thankful.”

3. Leo Collins- The Vow
“I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. And to always know in the deepest part of my soul that no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find our way back to each other.”

4. Sam Wheat- Ghost“I love you, Molly. I've always loved you.”

5. Augustus Waters- The Fault In Our Stars 
“I'm in love with you and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you."

So which one of these handsome guys is your  favorite movie boyfriend?

Preparing For Baby Number Three This Summer! #MomTrust

It's been pretty busy and hectic in our house this Summer, to say the least. We just celebrated my son turning seven last weekend and are shy of a week away from our little girl being here, my hubby turning the big 3-0 a few days later and at the end of next month we are celebrating my daughter turning nine. So things have been pretty busy over here trying to plan parties and get ready for the new addition to our family.

Although I've been pregnant this Summer and we haven't really had time to travel this year, I think the kids are still enjoying their time off from school and enjoying the sun. I've still managed to make sure that they are keeping active and getting out of the house and enjoying their Summer before things change for all of us. We've been to our local splash pad numerous times, had lots of family barbecues and there has been plenty of birthday parties and play dates they've been enjoying, not to mention swimming at a few family member's house.

We still have a little over a month left before school is back in session and life is back to normal, so although we're expecting our third child soon, I'm still excited to see what the rest of the Summer brings for my family. We normally host an outdoor movie night. We haven't done that this Summer yet, so I'm thinking this would be the perfect party to host with a few of the neighborhood kids and family members before they all head back to school.

Even though our Summer hasn't been spent traveling like we usually do, I think its been going pretty well having stay-cations and doing local activities with the kids. Next Summer we will definitely get back to traveling and going on trips, but for now we can't wait for baby number three to arrive!

What have you and your family been doing this Summer?

Celebrating Canadian Flicks On Netflix ! #StreamTeam

This month we celebrated the birth of our country. Whether it was celebrating with friends and family at a barbecue or by yourself in the comfort of your own home, another Canada Day has come and gone. We actually celebrated by heading to our town's annual Ice Cream Festival and Fireworks. We had a blast and can't wait for next year's celebrations.

Did you know there are lots of Canadian shows and movies that are on Netflix that were either filmed in Canada, take place in Canada or were created here in O, Canada?! I was surprised and proud by the many shows and movies that I came across that are inspired by Canada some how. Some of the movies and shows I've seen on numerous times and just didn't know that they had any affiliation with Canada, but sure am glad to know that they do.

I use to watch, Are You Afraid Of The Dark? and Goosebumps as a kid and love watching them now with my kiddos, although what I thought was scary back then is not scary at all, it's awesome to see my kid's reaction to the same shows I use to watch.

If you're still celebrating Canada this month, be sure to check out the following films and television shows on Netflix for both younger and older kids:

Are You Afraid of The Dark?
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Johnny Test

Team Umi Zoomi
Super Why
Franny's Feet

What are your favorite Canadian inspired shows/movies on Netflix?

Rio 2 Blu-ray/DVD Combo Review

The cast of the animated hit comedy Rio returns — along with a new flock of all-star voice talent, including Bruno Mars, Kristin Chenoweth, Andy Garcia and more — in this high-flying sequel for the whole family. The party continues when Blu (Jesse Eisenberg), Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and their three kids take a walk on the wild side and embark on a colorful, comical, music-filled journey through the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit into his new surroundings, he goes beak-to-beak with the villainous Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all: his father-in-law!

The RIO 2 Blu-ray™ and DVD brings everything you loved from the first Rio, but with even more laughs, excitement and music! Not only will kids get nearly an hour and a half of bonus features on the RIO 2 Blu-ray™, but they’ll also get their groove on with two downloadable bonus songs from the RIO 2 soundtrack: “I Will Survive” and “Poisonous Love,” both performed by Gabi (Kristin Chenoweth) and Nigel (Jemaine Clement).  

My family was huge fans of the original movie, Rio. So when we were offered a chance to review Rio 2, I was more than excited to have this be our next movie for movie night. The entire family absolutely loved it. Not only was it nice seeing some of our old favorite characters back on the screen again, but we also loved meeting a few of the new characters that were introduced as well.

One of the best things about the Rio movies is the music. It was awesome getting to hear some of the new songs that they had in the movie and to see how catchy they would be with my kiddos. Not only was the movie awesome, but the hilarious humor in this movie did not let us down. It kept us all laughing and entertained from beginning to end. Definitely a movie for the entire family that would be perfect to watch this Summer. Rio 2 is now out on both DVD and Blu-ray. 
Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received a Rio 2 on blu-ray/dvd at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.

InnoTab 3 Baby – The Learning App Tablet (Review & Giveaway)

Last Summer Kristin shared with you all her and her daughter's experience with the VTech InnoTab 3. Today I want to share with you another great product from VTech, which is their InnoTab 3 Baby. This is a tablet that is designed for toddlers as young as one year old to kids that are up to the age of nine. Although my little one isn't here yet, so she won't be using this tablet for a while, I thought I'd try it out on both my six and eight year old.

I love that there is now a tablet designed for toddlers. With families now having tablets and smartphones, it's only right that there is something for the toddlers to enjoy. This is the perfect electronic that's safe and fun and will introduce your child into the world of electronics.

One thing I love is that this tablet ranges from ages one to nine, so all three of my kids will be able to enjoy this tablet. Another thing I love is how durable the tablet is. With its removable hard case, it will definitely be hard for your little one to drop and break this tablet. The tablet comes with an easy to grab handle along with a stylus that is designed easy for little hands to grab on to, this InnoTab 3 Baby will make the perfect gift for your little ones first birthday. Not only will this be a fun toy for them to play with, but it will also be teaching them great motor skills when holding the tablet as well as using the stylus.

I love that when you first turn on the tablet, you can personally customize it with your child's name. You can also choose a picture for your profile or take one of your little one. The tablet comes with 18 apps to start off with that teaches your little one shapes, numbers, sign language and much more. It comes with an MP3 player and the best part is, you can add your kid's favorite tunes on the tablet for them to enjoy. It also comes with a built in camera and microphone, which your little one will definitely enjoy. My kids have already made a video for their little sister to enjoy when she's old enough to play with her tablet.

When you find something that all of your kids that are different ages can use and play with, you get. My two kiddos have been having a ball taking pictures and leaving messages for their soon to be sister.

Not only are there games and apps included on the tablet, but there are also hundreds cartridges you can purchase that include some of your kid's favorite characters from movies and TV shows, you can also downloadable apps you can get by logging in to the Learning Log online. The tablet comes in two colors, pink and blue and is retailed at $79.99. Be sure to head on over to VTech Canada's website to find out more about the InnoTab 3 Baby as well as other products.
