Daddy’s Home 2: Available on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD ~ Enter to Win a Free Download Code!


About Daddy’s Home 2 (Rated PG-13):
When it comes to raising their kids, Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and Brad (Will Ferrell) finally have this co-parenting thing down. That is, until Dusty’s macho dad (Mel Gibson) and Brad’s sweet-natured father (John Lithgow) come to town, throwing the whole family into complete chaos. As old rivalries create new problems, Dusty and Brad’s partnership is put to the ultimate test in this hilarious and heartwarming comedy that gives new meaning to the term “blended family.”

Watch the trailer!


My thoughts:
If you loved Daddy’s Home, like I did, you’ll have a great time following up on this crazy family. Brad and Dusty may have gotten over their “daddy issues” with each other, but new “daddy issues” come to the surface when their own dads arrive! Brad finds out that his happy-go-lucky dad has a secret, and Dusty is trying to overcome a lifetime of neglect and criticism from his father. Many people will be able to relate to these awkward family dynamics. When they all decide to go away together for Christmas, it’s not surprising that tensions boil to the surface and things get wild. Daddy’s Home 2 drives home the point that no family is perfect, but that’s okay. They still need each other and can learn to “blend” their various personalities and lifestyles.


Daddy’s Home 2 Street Date:
February 6, 2018 (Digital)
February 20, 2018 (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD)


The DADDY’S HOME 2 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack feature over 45 minutes of bonus content. Go behind the scenes with five featurettes, deleted/ extended/alternate scenes and a hilarious gag reel. Plus, for a limited time only, get a bonus digital copy of the original Daddy’s Home with the 4K Ultra HD & Blu-ray Combo Packs. In addition, the DADDY’S HOME 2 Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD discs boast a Dolby Atmos® soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theater environment to place and move audio anywhere in the room, including overhead and the 4K Ultra HD disc features Dolby Vision™ high dynamic range (HDR), which delivers greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors.

Florida Prepaid College Plans: Open Enrollment Ends 2/28! Announcing a Free Webinar for More Info, Plus $25 Off the Application Fee!

This post is sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Board, through my role as a Believer Blogger. All thoughts are my own.


Time’s almost up! Over the past few months, I’ve been telling you about the awesome Florida Prepaid College Plans. Since 1988, this program has been helping families to affordably save for college -- longer than any other prepaid program in the nation! My oldest son was born in 1989, and we bought a Florida Prepaid College Plan for him as a baby, so we were among the first batch of families to take part in this terrific opportunity.

I hope that my posts have given you food for thought and started you on the road to thinking about how to pay for your children’s college education. However, now’s the time to commit because the open enrollment period for the Florida Prepaid College Program ends on February 28! Still have questions? Besides visiting the website at www.myfloridaprepaid.com, which has some really great information, I’d like to invite you to attend the following no-cost webinar. It only takes 45 minutes, and it will answer a lot of your questions about the program. Register at https://www.webcaster4.com/Webcast/Page/1511/24661.

Of course, you’ll have another opportunity to enroll next October, but by enrolling now, you’ll lock in today’s plan prices. And the younger your child is, the more months you’ll have to cover the cost, thus lowering the monthly payments.


Now, you may be thinking that this program is only for Florida schools. WRONG! Florida Prepaid College Plans aren’t restricted to Florida schools; the amount covered by your Prepaid Plan can be used at schools nationwide!

Another concern that people have is what happens if the covered child moves out of Florida. Well, that’s not a problem either! The child will still be billed at in-state tuition rates when using the plan at a Florida college or university.

And if your child doesn’t decide to go to college? You can either change the beneficiary of the Prepaid Plan or get your money back!


Still worried about risk? You’ll be happy to know that every Florida Prepaid College Plan is fully guaranteed by the State of Florida. Even during challenging economic years, the prepaid fund has never once operated at a deficit.

I’ve said it before, but it bears saying again, the Florida Prepaid College Program has been a godsend for our family. Thanks to this program, my two oldest boys earned their bachelor’s degrees from Florida universities debt-free! And my teenage twins are poised to do the same thanks to the plans we’ve purchased for them. Every family should take advantage of this incredible opportunity to save for their children’s future and enable them to attend college without breaking the bank.

So, what are you waiting for? Don’t delay. Get in the program this year, and use the following code to receive $25 off the application fee !

PROMO CODE:

The Florida Prepaid College Board’s annual Open Enrollment period is Oct. 15, 2017–Feb. 28, 2018.

Book Review: "Groundhug Day," by Anne Marie Pace

Groundhug Day
by Anne Marie Pace
Illustrated by Christopher Denise

About the book: Moose is having a Valentine's Day party, and all his friends are so excited! Everyone except Groundhog, that is. If Groundhog sees his shadow outside, he'll hide in his hole for six more weeks and miss the party! Determined to help their friend join them, Moose, Squirrel, Bunny, and Porcupine put their heads together and come up with a plan. But will it be enough to get Groundhog out to play? This story celebrates friends who look out for each other through thick and thin and all year round.

My thoughts: The author was very clever to combine both Groundhog Day and Valentine's Day into one book! The illustrations by Christopher Denise are absolutely adorable. And this story shows children that no problem is unsolvable, especially when friends put their heads together to come up with a solution. When the animals really get to the root of the problem -- why Groundhog hides when he sees his shadow -- they're able to come up with a way to get him to confront his fears. The book ends with a clever twist that I definitely didn't see coming. Kids and parents alike will love this sweet story, not only for Valentine's Day (or Groundhog Day), but all year round!
