Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg star in Upcoming 9/11 Movie #Remember911 #Giveaway


September 11 is one of those days where you remember exactly where you were and what you were doing the time you heard the news.

Me?

Hubby and I had moved from California to his home state.  We had grown tired of the hustle and bustle of living in the Bay Area and the housing market was at the point we gave up hope of ever owning a home in the S.F. Bay.  We pulled up to his mom's house on the night of September 10.  I remember him waking me up to tell me what happened.  I couldn't believe it.

Here we were starting our life together and the world was coming to an end.

It didn't help that I couldn't reach my mom by phone to tell her I was okay or that she couldn't reach me to let me know she and the family were fine.  9/11 was a day I will always remember as it is the day I had to stand on my own with no one to depend on other than my husband.  I will always remember it as the day I became an adult.

No matter who you are or where you were, that moment and the aftermath is indelibly etched in your mind.

9/11 opens in theaters on September 8 and features an all star cast including Luis Guzman (The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) and Bruce Davison (X-Men).

In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later ... their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.

With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.


Did you know nearly 3,000 people lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks?  
Did you know 3,051 children lost a parent?
We must never forget the tragic events of 9/11 and in these days of ever increasing violence we as parents may be challenged with explaining violence, terrorism and 9/11 to our kids.  Organizations like Tuesday's Children are helping to support children and families impacted by 9/11 and proceeds from the movie will go to help this organization continue to provide services for those in need.

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…

Win an Alex and Ani Bangle in the Color Me Lucky Giveaway Hop!

The kids are back in school and we are back to the hustle and bustle of another school year.  I am so excited as I have a high school senior this year and we are looking forward to a banner year!

He's super busy and doesn't always make time to grab something for breakfast so I like to keep some of his favorites on hand so he can just grab 'n go on his way out the door.  One of his favorites is our Easy Breakfast Burritos.  
He's a master of the microwave so these quick 'n easy breakfast omelettes in a mug are a fave.
He loves pancakes so keep homemade pancake mix on hand.  All he has to do is grab a scoop of the mix, add milk and he can whip a stack of pancakes on the stove or in the microwave. 
So many choices and that is why we are so excited to participate in the Color Me Lucky Giveaway Hop hosted by Mama the Fox.  We're giving one lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader an Alex and Ani bangle (priced $25 and under) of their choice.  

I just have one questio…
