I have been traveling from Houston to Dallas for the past 2 months and one thing I have noticed is that the sneezing and coughing around me is getting worse and worse.  When I left Dallas it was in the 40s.  I got to Houston and it was in the 70s.  Yesterday it went from 80s down to the 30s.  No wonder people are getting sick.  It is like we have 2 seasons this Winter.  What are we to do?

Dinner and #SingMovie

Family time is so important to me.  I love my family and would do anything for them.  I have been traveling alot lately with work and find myself trying to enjoy every bit of family time we can have.
This is a sponsored post.  All opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience.

I have very sad that I have to travel so much.  I really miss my kids.  Such is life.  We work hard for our families.  I was so happy when I was invited to do dinner and a movie with my family.  We had a lot of catching up to since I practically was gone all of November.  We ended going to dinner at Harlow's which is a restaurant inside the Edwards Grand Palace.
It is a cool restaurant that looks like an old diner.  The kids and dad met me there afterschool.  Where we catch up on all the happenings of the week since I had just flown back in.

Dinner was delicious.  Afterwards, the entire family headed into the theater to see the new movie Sing.

Have you seen the commercial for the new movie Sing?

Sypnosis:  Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (McConaughey), a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times.  Buster is an eternal—some might even say delusional—optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it.  Now faced with the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.

Five lead contestants emerge: Mike (MacFarlane), a mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons; Meena (Kelly), a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright; Rosita (Witherspoon), an overtaxed mother run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets; Johnny (Egerton), a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; and Ash (Johansson), a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.

Each arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.  And as Buster coaches each of his contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.

We all loved it.  I was a funny movie.  We each related to a different character in the movie.  It was exaclty what we needed to unwind.  Can you guess who our favorite character was?

Sing arrives in theaters on December 21,
