Hi, I'm Tomi and welcome to Three Boys and an Old Lady blog
This fab diva in the making loves sharing my thoughts on good food, good wine, good books, movies, video games and more.
Thanks for visiting.
I am looking forward to Disney's Queen of Katwe hitting theaters this weekend. Got a chance to see it while in L.A. over the Summer and I can't wait to see it again. Yes, I'm planning to take all of my kids to see it this weekend.
Here's a clip from the movie. Check it out.
Also, in the spirit of QUEEN OF KATWE, HSN is excited to partner with Soular Backpacks! For every Soular Backpack purchased, a solar-powered backpack is given to a child in Africa to help study at night. Currently, children are using kerosene lamps, which can cause health complications. Soular Backpacks use natural energy from the sun during a child’s walk home from school. Make a difference today: http://gohsn.co/gh6NNz
Shoplet recently announced plans to host a massive giveaway campaign designed to give back to teachers and schools who are constantly struggling with budget cuts.
The Shoplet for Schools campaign will be kicking off September 19th and run through October 3rd, 2016. The highlight of the event features a grand prize bundle of assorted school necessities valued at $5,000. The winner of the event will be selecting a school of their choice to donate the prize.
"Shoplet works with school purchasers as well as parents, but we are seeing so many teachers paying out of pocket for supplies for their classrooms," says Tony Ellison, the CEO and Founder of Shoplet. "We wanted to show our support as well. Education is about expanding opportunities, and that's why we are opening this drawing up to give everyone the opportunity to help."
The Shoplet for Schools campaign pays tribute to the work that teachers do for their students. Aside from the main giveaway event, promotions …
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows exactly why.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder.
Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.
“Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016 but check out the trailer below

Spirituality without Stereotypes, Religion without Ranting by Lillian Daniel A few weeks ago, our newly elected Bishop visited and proclaimed his plans to increase membership. Like so many small churches, our church has witnessed a steep decline in church membership. We have a rich history but it's hard for a small church with 3 services a week to compete against larger churches offering more worship opportunities and services for members.
I have heard stories of long ago when our state was home to over 70 A.M.E. Zion churches and now, we have less than 15. Something must change.
In her book, Tired of Apologizing for a Church I Don't Belong To, author Lillian Daniel tackles the challenge of sharing the gospel without being preachy, without being judgmental, just being human.
The popular preacher and public intellectual Lillian Daniel continues to take on the "Spiritual but Not Religious" individuals and shows Christians how to reach them. Sloppy talk about Christian…
After the twins were born, I looked in the fridge and noticed a small vial in the side door. I'd held onto that vial of medication for nearly a year and with the birth of the twins, I had the courage to dispose of it. It was a tiny vial that held a $1,000 medication. A vial which held all my hopes of motherhood and now after years of fertility treatments, our dreams of parenthood finally came true and it was time to get rid of that vial.
Getting pregnant was a pricey investment of time and money for me and my husband. We spent tens of thousands of dollars in our efforts to conceive and countless hours at doctor's offices and hospital labs. Was it worth it? Yes. Would I do it all over again? Well, yes and no. Yes, I would do it all over again but not exactly the same way we did before.
Much has changed in terms of fertility treatments since hubby and I began our fertility journey over a decade ago. Nowadays, couples trying to conceive have options, much more affordable o…
