Hannah Montana Final Season on DVD!

The girls were thrilled when this review package came in the mail:

Photobucket

Hannah Montana Lives Forever

 

Click here to Buy on Amazon:  Hannah Montana Forever: Final Season

This special 2-Disc DVD set released March 8th covers the final season of the Disney Channel's popular show starring Miley Cirus as...Miley Stewart and her rockstar alter-ego, Hannah Montana. The DVD set has an exclusive alrenate ending plus lots of other extras including cast goodbyes and a special memory book!

Hannah's lessons make for a great gift

As we've seen Miley grow up and wrestle with having "the best of both worlds", each episode contains a little lesson for us all. Sometimes silly, sometimes serious, the secret that Miley hides and the way she has to balance both parts of her life offer a lot for a tween girls who is starting to struggle with finding out who she is among her friends and school mates. This is why I think kids fell in love with the show.

Even a rockstar makes mistakes, gets in trouble, fights with friends, and more.

Disclosure: I received the Hannah Montana Forever: Final Season 2-disc set at no charge for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed here are my own and this post was neither approved nor reviewed prior to being published. Also, I have often found myself sitting and vegging in front of the TV with the girls watching a marathon of Hannah Montana episodes. If I didn't actually like the show, I would not have accepted a 2-disc set! Granted, it's not for everyone - especially those with boys, but you never know! They might enjoy it too!

Disney 'Tangled' Giveaway

Every mother of a little girl can relate to the title of Disney's newest movie, 'Tangled'

(UPDATE: The winner of the t-shirts and silly bandz is.. Lori! Congrats!)

Whatever you call it....

Messy

Knotty

Bed Head

Bird's Nest

Hair Game

or 'Tangled', we've all had our fair share of hair nightmares.

So I love the fact that Disney picked up on that and when remaking the classic tale of Rapunzel, opted for a very modern title. Disney knows the people getting those little girls to see the movie are, infact, the ones also brushing out the tangles.

'Tangled' hits theaters Wednesday, November 24th in 3D!

I recently reviewed Rapunzel's 'Tangled' diary (such a cute idea) and so our family of girls is already very excited to see this movie. This will be a perfect Thanksgiving break treat! Here's a brief synopsis of the movie 'Tangled':

When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider (voice of Zachary Levi) is taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of Mandy Moore), a feisty teen with 70 feet of golden hair who’s looking for her ticket out of the tower where she’s been locked away for years, the unlikely duo sets off on a hilarious, hair-raising escapade filled with adventure, heart, humor and hair—lots of hair.

Disney's 'Secretariat' is a Movie Where Mothers Stay Strong, and Grown Men Cry

Disney's 'Secretariat' is a Movie Where Mothers Stay Strong, and Grown Men Cry

Why Mothers will love Secretariat

A few weeks ago I was invited to see a special preview screening of the new Disney film, 'Secretariat' staring Diane Lane (LOVE) and John Malkovich whom I also love, especially in this role! But this is not a horse movie. It's a film about a woman, a mother making really tough choices, and taking risks...risks her family may have never recovered from had things not worked out for her.

'Secretariat' is the TRUE story of Penny Chenery Tweedy, a Denver housewife who takes over her family horse breeding farm after the death of her mother. We watch her struggle with being away from her children and missing some major milestones. We cheer when she confronts industry bullies including other (male) trainers, and owners. And we cringe when her decision to risk the family fortune is challenged by not only her brother, but her husband as well. 

Yet we know the ending of the story. We KNOW she was fighting for the RIGHT decision. But back then, even she had no real idea what was going to happen.

And that is what we mothers face every single day. We have this gut feeling about raising our children, and we also have our own doubts, and fears that we'll screw it all up for them.

Secretariat is Moving But in a Spiritual Way

What I Loved most about the movie was the soundtrack. The gospel song, "Oh Happy Day" kept me warm the whole drive home. It brought grown men to tears in the theater.  I saw it with my own, womanly eyes.

Because this is a story of faith. Faith that this very special horse knew what to do all on his own, and faith that everything would somehow work out for Penny. The story, the incredible beauty of the horses, and the amazing journey of this one horse, and this one woman is truly moving. It makes you feel like whatever you are doubting in your own life, if you just have faith, it will somehow work out.

"Secretariat' is in theaters starting this weekend.

Go, and bring your mom.

Also, I loved this movie. I loved Diane Lane's entire wardrobe. And the acting was incredible. And now I want to go out and buy a horse.
