When I was at Babies “R” Us filling out my baby registry, I contemplated whether or not to purchase a video monitor or just pick up a regular baby monitor. I decided not to, but after getting a video monitor it totally changed my mind.
Frozen released today and I’m excited to share my Frozen movie review! If you are looking for a film to see over the Thanksgiving holiday this one is definitely worth it.
This Frozen movie review is not a sponsored review. Disney provided me the opportunity to preview this movie with my family, all opinions are my own.
Frozen is such an incredible movie and fun for the entire family. Disney Frozen is a film about 2 sisters, Anna and Elsa. They were joyous playmate and inseparable as kids. Elsa had special powers; she could turn anything into ice, which made their playtime extremely fun. Until one day Elsa accidentally struck her sister. Near death, they brought Anna to a magical troll, who heals Anna and erases her memory of Elsa’s special powers. Elsa’s parents thought it would be best to keep Elsa locked away and doors closed to the castle, until she could learn to control her powers.
The castle doors are opened again, once Elsa becomes queen. Still fearful of her powers she strives to get through the coronation ceremony. But during the ball, Anna falls quickly in love with a prince and announces their engagement. Elsa doesn’t give her blessing and a heated argument left Elsa releasing her powers. Elsa ashamed leaves the kingdom, not realizing she turned summer into winter.
Anna goes after Elsa in efforts to retrieve her sister and restore the kingdom. Along the way, she meets Kristoff and his sidekick Sven. Then later they meet a snowman named Olaf, (my kids favorite character in the film). The movie Frozen was a bit of old Disney, lots of singing in this film, which reminded me of older films such as snow white.
The film was heart felt and very enjoyable for the kids. I would definitely recommend taking your kids to see it.
Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.
The film is directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, “Wreck-It Ralph”), who also wrote the screenplay. It is produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”). Featuring original songs from Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit,” “Winnie the Pooh”) and Tony® winner Robert Lopez (“The Book of Mormon,” “Avenue Q”), and an original score by Christophe Beck (“The Muppets,” Oscar®-winning short “Paperman”), “Frozen” hits theaters in 3D on Nov. 27, 2013.

Tide Washing Machine Cleaner caught my eye in a commercial. I had never heard of a washing machine cleaner and was curious to see if worked the same way those dishwasher cleaners did. My washer was so bad that I headed to the store to purchase a box of Tide Washing Machine Cleaner in hopes that it would actually clean my washer.
I’m ashamed to admit that we’ve owned the same washer for about 9 years and I never once cleaned it. I honestly never really thought to clean our washer and it wasn’t until our clothes started smelling like mildew that it really caught my attention that our washing machine was disgusting.
This is a not a sponsored post for Tide. I’m doing this review on my own because I needed the product and I really wanted to see if this product worked.
Tide Washing Machine Cleaner runs around $2.33 a packet, however Tide doesn’t sell them individually. I looked for the smallest box at the store. There was only one, which contained 5 packets.
The instructions were pretty simple, just set your washing machine to hot water, add the packet and run it through your normal cycle.
See how nasty my washer is:
But that wasn’t even the worst of the photos, When I pulled off the fabric softener dispenser, I nearly gagged.
If Tide Washing Machine cleaner could clean this, they might as well have signed me up to be their next spokeswoman, because I would become a fan for life.
I’ve never been more excited to run my washer.. and since it had to run through the entire cycle there was no peeking allowed. I had to wait until my washer was done. It was like Christmas, I couldn’t wait to open it up and see if my washer was cleaned.
To my disappointment.. it looked the exact same way as it started.
But it smelled better. The mildew smell I had in my washer was gone. Here I was expecting it to work like those dishwasher cleaners but the cleaning happened in all those drain holes.
My washer still needed to be cleaned, so I got out a bucket filled it up with some laundry soap and water and took scrub brush and started tacking the dirt by hand. To my surprise it also loosened the dirt and came off pretty easy.
Remember that photo I nearly gagged on? It was looking pretty good.
Once the scrubbing by hand was done, I just ran the rinse cycle one more time and our washer was so clean!
Overall, I am really satisfied with the results I got from Tide Washing Machine Cleaner despite having to do some scrubbing, It’s been over a week now and I’ve done a bunch of loads already and my mildew smell is still gone and I’m pretty happy about that. I’ve also got a bunch of cleaning packets left and with Tide’s suggestion that I run one a month, maintenance here on out will be easy.
