Time to Get Funky with a Get on Up DVD Giveaway

Win This Blu-Ray DVD Combo

Last month I shared news of the upcoming release of Get on Up, the James Brown Story. Click here to check out my post.  I LOVED this movie.  Chadwick Boseman did an awesome job portraying the Godfather of Soul and Dan Aykroyd blew me away with his performance.  

I love biopics about musicians.  I really do.  Purple Rain reigns supreme in my video vault with The Temptations movie coming in at a close second.  I admit I wasn't fond of James Brown's music but it's the artist and the impact he had on the industry and civil rights which fascinated me.  I have heard the story of how Brown was scheduled to perform in Boston one night.  The night before his scheduled performance Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated and riots broke out nationwide.  Fearing the worst, Boston city officials planned to cancel the concert.  However, Brown, being the savvy businessman he was, played on.  His concert aired live on tv and Boston remained relatively quiet that night.  

Get on Up is funky from the beginning til the end and OMG I can't believe I wrote that BUT it's James Brown and for some reason the word "funky" seems to describe his music unlike any other.  Check out the movie and if you've see it, what'd you think.  I'd love to know.

Rent It:  Get on Up is available for rental wherever you rent your faves DVDs from

Buy It:  Get on Up is available at most local movie resellers including Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, Target and others.

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
