3D Movies... The Coolest Things Since... 3D Movies - Flashback Friday

Additions to the original post are in pink :)

I think 3D movies are cool. I really do. But why is there such a big hoopla about them? Apparently people were smart enough in the 50's to figure out they are a fad that soon dies out. But now we are falling for it like crazy.

What is fun at Disneyland is expensive and gives you a headache all the time. Last time I went to see a movie (Shrek 4) all but ONE of the movies advertised was in 3D. That is an extra $3 per person every time someone sees a 3D movie.  This was originally published in 2010, and these are still going strong.  And the last 3D movie I saw was Wreck It Ralph (very cute by the way, I highly recommend it).

But you get a sweet pair of Buddy Holly glasses, that you can recycle or take home as a souvenir. But you can't bring them back. At least not for a discount, even though they claim the extra charge is for the glasses.

Then they make 3D TVs. I'm sure you want to pay an extra $300+ for your TV to do what a pair of paper glasses can do for $1. Oh, and that won't cover the 3D glasses. Yeah, you have to shell out another $150 or so dollars if you and your hubby want to watch it. Got kids? $150 for every two of them that want to watch the wonderful 3D images.  Admitedly the 3D televisions and the glasses are WAY better than the paper ones, but it is still an absurd cost!

Yeah, this is what people should spend money researching... not cancer, or AIDS, or world hunger. Entertainment. Recycled entertainment.

Believe it or not, those are the child sized 3D glasses.
That being said, if they remake Star Wars in 3D I will be the first in line to see it. Well not really, because I hate lines. I'll probably show up after its been out for a week or two and I can just go right in. For a matinee.  Apparently they are making a new Star Wars Movie.  Which I am not sure if I am excited about.  I think that I am, but at the same time the prequels kind of sucked a little, so I don't know how much hope there is for the sequels.

  1. 3D movies actually make me kind of dizzy. I get dizzy at the movie theater sometimes even when it's not 3D. I am sensitive to movement and that type of stuff though.

    1. I have another friend that hates 3D movies because they make her sick. We tortured her once and took her to see A Christmas Carol in 3D (we had intended to see it in 2D but missed the movie time). She said it was better than old 3D but still made her mildly sick. We usually only go to the 3D ones when we miss the time for the cheaper one (like with Wreck It Ralph). I would be sad if I got sick at the movies, its pretty much the only thing Michael and I go do, other than grocery shopping.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
