Movies: Sneak Peek of Tyler Perry's Temptation

Saturday, December 29, 2012

A marriage counselor’s personal and professional life becomes complicated after she enters into a relationship with one of her clients.The movie is about Judith (Jurnee Smollett-Bell, all grown up from her “Eve’s Bayou” days), an Ivy League-educated married woman who wants to be a marriage counselor but is stuck working in a matchmaking agency for high-powered men run by Janice (Vanessa L.. Williams).  Her rival at the office is Ava (Kardashian) who is overly critical of Judith’s appearance and personal style (Kardashian does seem more at ease talking about fashion than “the largest social media inventor since Zuckerberg”).  But then Judith finds her own marriage in trouble when she comes under the spell of a new client, the successful and charming Harley (Robbie Jones).
Will you  going to the movies to see it? It does look interesting.

8 Ways to Deal With Holiday Blues

Monday, December 24, 2012

The holiday season can stress out the best of us. Often we get overwhelmed by the list of things we need to purchase or the people we need to see. It often becomes a time of the year where we look back at all the shortcomings and disappointments of the year. Here is a list of  tips that can be helpful.
1. Spend time with people who care about you and your well-being. A really good support system is the best thing you can do to cope with the holiday blues.
2. Celebrate the present, and accept that change is a normal part of life.
3. Volunteer your time in service to others. When you are helping or pitching in with something you will not think about yourself.
4. Understand that you cannot control your family members. They are who they are.
5. Don’t feel obligated to attend everything.. You are one person. No one will be angry with you if you cannot attend.  If they are angry than reevaluate your friendship.
6. Don’t overspend. Stick to your spending limit. When January arrives it  will not come with credit card shock.
7.  Really take a look at what is going on in your area. Google holiday events and attend something fun. It’s a good way to meet people.
8. Give us a Call , we will always have encouraging words for you  :)

Our Holiday Movie Picks , Happy Viewing :)

Most of us spend a good deal of time watching television or Netflix (Our Favorite) over the holiday season. If you are looking for your Holiday fix here is a  great list to use.

Here is my pick for quality viewing time for the visitors in your home this week and next. There are also different movies I watch for different reasons.
1-     It's a Wonderful Life - On the Top of any list. We watch it every year, and it just keeps getting better.
2-      Miracle on  34th Street - The original is a heartwarming story. You cannot help but smile and think of the kinder days in your childhood.
3-      Deck the Halls-  It tells the story of just how competitive we have become with Christmas decorations
4-      The Santa Clause We all know what it’s like to have to agree to something and we feel unworthy.
5-      The Christmas Shoes It will make you pay attention to the people in front and around you. You may be able to make someone’s wish come true
6-      This Christmas It will remind you that being with family  is  truly the best gift of year.
7-      The Preacher’s Wife-  It tells the story of healing and love’s enduring heart.
8-      The Nativity. It reminds you  of what Christmas is Truly about
9-      The Polar Express. It may be animated but it tells a story of Hope.
10-    A Christmas Story. Surely we all have seen it but you need to watch it again just for the laugh out loud quality of the child and the frozen flag pole.
11-    Home Alone - The first one, not the sequels! A really good family film for the holidays, except there's no family! Funny gags, hilarious antics and truly feel-good moments as well. (one of our favorites)
12-     A Charlie Brown Christmas  - We know it's a made-for-TV movie, but to ignore it would be stupid. Generations of kids have grown up on it.
13-    Elf  - Will Ferrell drives this great-for-the-entire-family Christmas comedy. Of course the uncredited appearance of Peter Billingsley is a special holiday treat.
14 -   Bad Santa  - Come on, admit it! You know it made you laugh. There's just something funny about a drunken Santa.

What is your favorite holiday movie?
Happy Viewing!
