How to Survive an Encounter with Your Monster in Laws (giveaway)

A&E has a new reality show that focuses on in-law relationships. Monster in Laws airs Monday's at 10 pm ET, and features real married couples whose relationship is struggling because of their relationship with their in-laws.

I'm sure many of you can relate. Whether it's an in-law giving their unsolicited advice, or one spouse feeling caught in the middle, in each case everyone is left feeling angry or resentful.

Monster in Laws
highlights some unconventional methods that are used to get both sides to communicate. It's not always the elder in-laws fault either. Sure, you migh relate to duct-taping a mother-in-law's mouth closed just so she'll listen. But how about forcing a daughter-in-law to take her jewelry to the pawn shop so that she can finally repay her mother-in-law?


Relationships are difficult and require open communication and, most importantly, honesty, to work well. Everyone will relate to something in Monster in Laws, so everyone deserves a shot at winning this in law survival kit!

The In-Law Survival Kit includes:

$50 Body Shop Gift Card

Spa Wisdom™ Japan Yuzu & Green Tea Bathing Salts

Total Body Massager

Hannah Montana Final Season on DVD!

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


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! Also, some links are affiliate links.


We catch a few mice and now we're bad-ass like Billy the Exterminator

So, we have a small mouse problem.

The problem is that we The Mister is pretty good at catching mice under our kitchen sink.

That sounds good, right?


Until you forget to check the traps under the sink...for a week...even when it starts to smell every time you reach under there to get the detergent for the dishwasher.

Smell aside, the fact remains that we are catching mice.

We're good at it. HE's good at it...The Mister I mean.

And I'm considering getting him a Vexcon t-shirt like our new household hero, "Billy the Exterminator".

Plus, we always learn something new about pest control from Billy, just in case we get an infestation of brown recluse spiders some day.

Have you ever seen the show? If not, be sure to watch A&E tomorrow (Wednesday, July 28) at 10pm for a special one-hour episode where Billy and his brother Ricky head to the Gulf to catch a pair of rowdy foxes and then get a closer look at the oil spill.

About that oil spill...

For the most part I've stopped reading and watching news in the Gulf. The news was simply too depressing, too scary, too sad.

But watching this episode of "Billy the Exterminator" for a review on Lifetime Moms this week gave me a glimps into the devastation without getting depressed. It got my head out of the sand and gave me a platform to start discussing it with The Twofer and even talk about ways we can offer help.

Plus, I learned that they are cleaning oil out of the mouth"s of sea turtles with mayonnaise! See, you always learn something from Billy.


Disclosure: I received a screener copy of "Billy the Exterminator: Billy Goes to the Gulf" for free for a review on Lifetime Moms. All opinions are my own and this post was neither reviewed nor approved by Lifetime or A&E.
