I (Sarah) have fond memories of Jumanji with Robin Williams. So I was extremely excited that there was going to be a remake of Jumanji this December. When they cast The Rock in it, I was slightly disappointed, but I held out hope that the movie would be awesome, after all, it’s Jumanji right?
Fast forward to today, when I actually saw the trailer. I cannot believe this is Jumanji. What did they do to it? It looks more like an adventure movie for the family than Jumanji. It looks nothing like I was expecting and all of my anticipation has drained out of me and I’m now dreading the release and wonder if I will see it at all.
Have you ever been disappointed by a movie trailer?
Does that restaurant look familiar? If you grew up in the 90s, it should! That’s The Max from Saved By The Bell, and it’s a real diner! It’s in Chicago normally, but is going to Los Angeles soon and it looks pretty dang neat! They even have menu items named after the characters like a Lisa Turtle Milkshake and A.C. Sliders.
I was never a really big fan of the show, although admit I did watch it. Plus, I always thought A.C. Slater was really cute (albeit a horrible little actor). I think I would actually visit this diner – but they seem to be sold out of reservations all the time, because it’s so popular.
If you loved the show and always wished you could chill out at The Max – now is your chance 🙂 Read more about it HERE!

That thing is brilliant! I (Jeni) absolutely love handy kitchen accessories and this Pot Clip is right up my alley! How smart is that? I always make a mess on my stove, even with the spoon holder I have, so this is my new favorite thing in the world (besides bacon, of course. Bacon is always first).
What is your favorite kitchen gadget?
If you love Twinkies, you’re gonna really love this! Twinkies is coming out with Twinkies Cappuccino. Yes, really. It’s a drink made with milk, spongecake flavor and a “hint” of coffee. I (Jeni) am not sure if I would love this or not, but I sure as heck am gonna try it! Read more about it HERE.
Would you try the Twinkies Cappuccino?
This is brilliant. This article shows in pictures, exactly what muscles are being stretched when you do stretches! This helped me a lot with my (Jeni) back pain, and helps me figure out what to do when I’m sore from a workout! If you workout at all, this is a great page to bookmark!! 34 pictures that show you exactly what muscles you’re stretching
Do you have a specific stretch that works best for you? I would love new stretches for my back!
I (Sarah) found the most amazing makeup palette ever recently! The makeup palette is called Unicorns Vs. Mermaids and it’s everything you want in a makeup palette truly. At $48.50 it’s a pricey makeup palette and it’s only available for pre-order. As much as I love Unicorns and Mermaids I’m not sure I could shell out $48.50 for a single makeup pallette.
Would you buy an expensive makeup pallette?
I (Sarah) am loving this sea dragon pool float. I totally could lounge around the pool all day on one of these. Now if only it breathed fire (or Sparklers) that would be amazing! It’s a little out of my price range (almost $50 bucks) but it looks like so much fun!
What are your favorite pool toys for adults and kids?
I (Sarah) have an ugly old filing cabinet that we got from a business that was closing. When I saw this awesome filing cabinet on Amazon, I totally wanted one. It’s ridiculously overpriced for such a small filing cabinet ($269!) but it sure does look nicer than the one we currently have. Ah well at that price, I’ll have to stick with my ugly filing cabinet.
Do you still use filing cabinets?
Last night, I (Jeni) decided to make strawberry shortcake for dessert – but I wanted to do something different with it and add some flavor….so I created this Strawberry Cream Cheese Shortcake! The strawberry flavored cream cheese mixture is a great addition and really adds kick to plain strawberry shortcake!
What desserts are you making this week?
