Rainbow Brite is coming back!

True story time…. growing up, I was OBSESSED with Rainbow Brite.

 

 

I’m pretty sure she’s the reason I:

a) am obsessed with color in all aspects of my life, and

b) had the thickest bangs in the world for all of my childhood and most of my adolescence.

Kindergarten me at Halloween….dem bangs!!!!

I had the dolls, the sprites, Rainbow Brite baby, the horse…even my bedspread and sheets were Rainbow Brite! She was my Elsa growing up.

So needless to say…I am super excited to find this article that Rainbow Brite is coming back! They will be featured on Feeln…which is a movie/tv subscription site similar to hulu or netflix.

Check out the trailer!

I’m not as excited about her new look, but I understand they are trying to appeal to a young audience… :)

So what childhood cartoon would you like to see revamped and brought back? Let us know!

This warmed my heart this morning like a good cup of tea does on a cool fall day.

Meet Iris. She is an artist…and a reeaalllyy great one! (Seriously…can I paint with her one day?)

She is also diagnosed with autism.

and this is Thula….her therapy cat.

You hear about therapy dogs a lot, but not therapy cats.

I just love everything about this. Check out more of her story and pictures HERE.

Oh SNAP!

I think Groupon just developed my new favorite App!

And no…I don’t mean cheese sticks or fried pickles….but if anyone wants to send one of those my way I will not mind! (extra points for Reuben Eggrolls from Jordy McTaggarts!)

So Groupon announced today that they have a new App called Snap!

It’s a cash back program for Groceries. Because Ain’t nobody got time to clip coupons.

Here’s how it works…download the app, check out some of the offers they have. Then go grocery shopping. Once you are done, take a picture of your receipt and send it to your Snap App, and if you purchased any of the “deals” they have going on, they will give you that cash back! They put it in your account and after you’ve acquired at least $20 worth you can request a check!

The deals aren’t that bad either…I was sold when milk was the first deal. I’m pretty sure I can make it to the $20 mark quickly on milk alone…seriously.

You can find out more about Snap HERE.

I’m excited to try this out! Hopefully you are too. Apparently there are already some apps like this that exist…do you already use an app like this? What is it and do you like it?

Happy Grocery shopping!
