Oprah and Deepok Chopra have a FREE 21 Day Meditation Experience!

Meditation has made a huge difference to my life. With Fibromyalgia, Psoriatic Arthritis, and spine damage, I have chronic pain and fatigue. Meditation, (and yoga) helps with this. With a few minutes of meditation, I feel so much better. Even on days where I don't have pain, I meditate to help with my mental focus. It really makes a huge difference! That's why I signed up for the 21 Day Meditation Experience.

If the thought of meditation makes you think of sitting cross legged while chanting nonsense and om, well, that's one way of meditating, but it's not the only way. You don't have to go all yogi guru to strengthen your life through meditation. The great thing about meditation is that anyone can do it and it can be done anywhere.

If you're looking for a way to get a better control of your life, increase your energy, calm your nerves, relax, and get stronger mental focus, meditation might be just the thing.
Focus on the Peace around you.
Good news you can now join in on the completely FREE 21 day meditation experience with Oprah's Life Class and Deepok Chopra. Oprah is doing it so you know its got to be good, right!

There is one meditation and focus per day starting with Day 1's focus on security, followed by Day 2 Happiness. Each meditation is available for 5 days, so if you want to join you have a few days left. If you try it, I'd love to hear about your experience!

Calling All Amateur Pitchers, Disney Wants to Give You $1 Million!

If you know someone that can throw a mean fastball, you have to tell them about this! Disney is looking to give away $1 million to a fast arm.

In honor of the new movie, Million Dollar Arm, Disney will be holding a contest to find nine finalists. The nine finalists will get to go to the world premier of Million Dollar Arm in Hollywood, CA. At the premiere they will get the chance to throw 3 pitches for $1 million. Any finalist that throws 100 mph pitch will win the money.

Do you have what it takes? or Do you know someone that does? If so, here's what you do to enter.

On April 25th or 26th go to ESPN Wide World of Sports in Kissimmee, FL or Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA to tryout. If you can't get to one of those places, you can also enter in NYC on April 26 at Tribeca Family Festival.

3 finalists will be chosen from each tryout location and sent to the World Premiere. That's a heck of a prize on its own, even if you don't win the million!

Of course there are a few rules, you have to be a U.S. resident, and you have to be at least 18 years old. Get more info here including all the legal mumble jumble.

So, if your child is finally an adult, then get him or her to enter and all those weekends spent at travel ball tournaments might just payoff!

Favorite Songs From the 2014 Country Music Awards #MusicMonday

It's Music Monday, and with last night's Country Music Awards, I can't help but have a little Country music running through my head. There were many great performances, and a couple not so great, but we can't all agree on everything, right?

Anyway, let's get our Monday going with some of the songs I like best from last night's award show.


Muppets Most Wanted is Full of Suspense, Laughter, and Music. It's Just Plain Fun!

One of the things I like most about Muppets is that they are truly timeless. It doesn't matter if you watch old Muppet Show reruns, or new Muppets movies, they stand up to the test of time. They are also ageless because you can enjoy Muppets as a child and as an adult. They just have that magical spark of fun. The latest Muppet film is no different, Muppets Most Wanted is fun from the first song right through the last dance number!

Muppets Most Wanted is still in theaters. If you haven't seen it yet, you really should. It is worth the trip to the theater. I was a little hesitant to see it, but like I said Muppets are always good, so I figured I might as well go and enjoy it. While I knew it would be good, what I didn't know was that it would be just as good if not better than the last one.

The movie opens with a silly song about it being a sequel to the last movie that got the "band" back together. Professor and Beaker appear to remind us that it is technically the 7th sequel. Wow! 8 Muppets movies. Can you believe it?! I remember when the first one came out, and I saw it in the theater with my grandmother. That was the movie that gave us the great song about rainbows. The Muppets are always giving us great new songs that you can't help but hum along to. This movie does the same thing; plenty of great musical numbers, lots of laughter, suspenseful and heartwarming moments, along with some fabulous celebrity cameos. Some of my favorite moments include cameos from Ricky Gervais, Ray Liotta, and Ty Burrell. There are also some surprise guests that help to make Muppets Most Wanted a film you'll most want to see.

Don't feel like you have to have kids to enjoy this movie, because you definitely don't. You are never too old for fun! I have no doubt you'll have a blast.

I Feel Happy, #MusicMonday

It's Monday, and I'm in a great mood. I had a great weekend. On Friday, hubby and I went on a field trip with his Marine Biology class to Sea World. It was nice to get to go behind the scenes and see the seals and beluga whales up close. After Sea World, we stopped by Epcot to meet up with some friends. We were meeting a couple of them for the first time, though you wouldn't know it by how much fun we had!

It was so nice to hang out with one of my dear old friends and her children while also meeting my new friend and her husband. They were in Florida to watch their son play the bass with his school orchestra and jazz band. I got to hear the jazz band, and tap my toes to the beat. What a great sound they had!

The rest of the weekend was spent doing some shopping, watching movies and doing homework. It was quite relaxing. Today, I feel happy, just like this song!

Have a great #MusicMonday, and a fabulous musical week!
