This was on my doorstep today!
If you look closely you'll see the package is addressed to "CarolesThoughtfulSpot.com" (I blocked out my address). I had to laugh - I've never received anything addressed to my blog before, LOL!
Anyway, I was sent a copy of the movie "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs", which is being released on DVD January 5th, to watch with my family and review. We didn't see it when it was in the theaters, but I can't wait to watch it - we have the book and it is one of my most FAVORITE books from my daughter's childhood.
Looks like fun, huh? Be on the lookout for our review soon! In the meantime there's a sweepstakes with some pretty cool prizes you can enter here, AND they gave me a deleted scene to share with you - if you want to check it out, here it is: Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Deleted Scene.
So, I'm glad the DVD didn't come until today, because despite being very un-busy on Christmas Day, we've been going nearly non-stop since then - we had friends visit from out of town, we had my husband's family's Christmas celebration, AND we drove down to Long Island to find a geocache that had a name that had significance to us to be our ONE THOUSANDTH GEOCACHE FIND! I was the one who actually did the driving down to Long Island, which I think I've only done one other time (99% of the time my husband or Dad does the driving if we're heading that-a-way). You definitely have to drive a lot more, shall we say, "assertively" down there, but I think I did ok. I don't think anyone even beeped at me. :-D
In the next couple of days we have my daughter's birthday to celebrate and preparation for our annual New Year's seafood feast (last year's "photo essay" of our dinner is here).
In case I don't make it back to post again before the new year, HAPPY NEW YEAR, peeps! And hey - what are YOUR New Year's Eve plans?
