Photographer Dennis DiLauraStylist SherylJob# 1249680CRetoucher: Alex DJI don’t know how many little girl dream of being a ballerina. I know both my girls have. Jenelle Manzi is a real-life ballerina, and has gotten the chance many of us never will- to see her dance moves in an animated film- specifically, the new Barbie in the Pink Shoes movie. Jenelle attributes her success to the support of her mom and talks about being a professional ballerina.  Ms. Manzi seems to be very grounded and very approachable- check out her answers to our questions in the video below!


This spring, Barbie™ brings ballet back to the spotlight for the first time in years– introducing a new generation of girls to the moves and music of famous Giselle and Swan Lake. Girls will dance their way to a magical adventure with Barbie™ as Kristyn Farraday™, a ballerina with big dreams! When she tries on a pair of sparkling pink shoes, she and her best friend, Hailey, are whisked away to a fantastical ballet world. There, Kristyn Farraday™ discovers she must dance in her favorite ballets in order to defeat an evil Snow Queen. With performances from the legendary Giselle and Swan Lake ballets, Kristyn embarks on a magical journey and learns when you dance from your heart, dreams can come true! Barbie™ in The Pink Shoes also marks the first time a Barbie™ movie will be released on Blu-Ray™.

Happy (Almost) Pi Day! Let’s Celebrate with…Pie! (Giveaway) #MarieCallenders

My son and I had a pie lunch date this week.  This is kind of a BIG DEAL.  Big sister was at school and little sister went down for an early nap because she wasn’t feeling well.  I’d planned on making myself one of Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pies for lunch because it was a cold, rainy, sleety and dreary day and I wanted some comfort food.  My son’s never been interested in pot pie before, but this day, he couldn’t stop asking me questions about it.  I asked if he wanted to try a bit, and after looking at me surprised (that I thought to ask or that I finally did ask, I’m not so sure) he took a bite. Another bite.  After he’d gobbled up half the pie I told him I was going to make a second one and WE were going to have a Pie Date!   Pi Day is the mathematical holiday but remember, in January comes Pie Day (and yes, we did celebrate that too. We like our pie).

Our lunch was delightful.  My little guy has a pretty good sense of humor but he’s always surrounded by two sisters who don’t like to let anyone get a word in edgewise (some say they get that from me, to which I plead the 5th…), so when it’s just him and me, I have a lot of fun.  We talked all about his day at school and I started explaining to him about Pi Day coming soon and how I think we should have another pie date to celebrate.  After accepting that Pi Day does not actually include presents, he asked lots of questions about Pi.  His favorite subject was math so hearing about a holiday to celebrate math made him pretty intrigued.

So we had our pre-Pi Day date, and this week we’ll celebrate the actual Pi Day, and then in a few weeks, we’ll celebrate Easter with my in laws…and guess what we’ll be having for dessert?  Well, aside from the normal Easter-ish type of candies…we’ll be having pie!  My daughter saw the containers from our pie date in the recycle bin after she got home from school and wanted some Key Lime Pie.  She LOVES key lime pie.  We decided that would be a really fun way to end our Easter dinner!  It’s a busy day and not everyone has time to bake from scratch- Marie Callender’s pies can save a lot of time and energy so you can sit back and enjoy the moments with your loved ones.

Marie Callender’s has a pie for every occasion.  Or just about.  I think with pie you can kind of have some leeway on occasions to eat it.  Like if the day happens to end in Y, you can probably assume it’s ok to just have a little.  Or a lot.  I mean, you could really have pie for lunch and dinner and pie for dessert.  I would probably recommend you mix that up a bit and not eat exclusively pie for a day, though.

Be sure to get your  Marie Callender’s printable coupon good for  $1.50 coupon off any pie!  Don’t forget to enter the codes for Child Hunger Ends Here on specially marked packages either in my sidebar or below:

One reader will win FIVE coupons for FREE Marie Callender’s Pies!

Make your spring cleaning simpler with Fish Foam window cleaner

I haven’t made a confession to you all in a while, so I think it’s time. I might be the world’s worst window cleaner.  Ever, in the history of windows. I’ve never cleaned a window without leaving streaks or marks behind.  Even when I’m thinking “This time, I nailed it!”  the evidence shows up within a day or so, usually when we’re driving down the road and the sun shines on that streaky glass as if it was being highlighted.  I’ve tried everything. Store bought sprays, wipes, microfiber, used newspaper, made my own sprays….this mama does NOT love washing windows.

One brand I have not tried but am very much hoping to try soon is Fish Foam Window Cleaner.  Why? Well, for starters, it’s foam.  Foam is fun.  But foam also kind of stays where you put it longer than a spray so maybe it’ll help me to…you know.  Not leave streaks. Or residue. Or both.  It’s got a great reputation that precedes it, judging from reviews I’ve seen on other blogs and by happy customers.

Fish Foam is a product used by the professionals at Fish Window Cleaning.

When was the last time you cleaned your windows? If you are embarrassed by your response, we can help you do something about it.

Fish Foam eliminates drips and rundowns. Surfaces that haven’t been cleaned in years will shine. Hard to remove fingerprints will disappear. You won’t want to use any other glass cleaner once you’ve tried Fish Foam.
