VeggieTales Celery Night Fever DVD Giveaway

VeggieTales Celery Night Fever

From our teens to our youngest, everyone in our family has great memories of watching VeggieTales together. We were thrilled to hear VeggieTales would be releasing their newest addition Celery Night Fever on August 5th.

As luck would have it we were able to preview this DVD over this last weekend when we were moving!  It was the PERFECT choice to keep everyone occupied and entertained during the car ride.  The six new original songs featured in Celery Night Fever had everyone in our car singing along.  In fact, when I asked the kids what their favorite part of the drive was they all mentioned the songs. As as parent, I also appreciated the positive messages on forgiveness combined with witty humor appropriate for everyone.

In Celery Night Fever, the VeggieTales gang learns some valuable lessons about forgiveness. Old bandmates from The Groovy Brothers,  simmered in their own juices over an old falling out rediscover, their friendship.  Bruce Onion (the voice of Actor Terry Crews) peels back the layers of his bitterness toward the band and learns to be sweet again. And Laura Carrot, after cutting her best pal Junior Asparagus out of her life over a mistake he makes, decides everything is better when they’re like two peas in a pod.

Celery Night Fever provided a great opportunity to talk to our kids about forgiveness. Bob and Larry share this verse at the end of the dvd : Ephesians 4:12 : “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”  This lead to a further discussion about how forgiveness is not a one-time event- we must always be ready to forgive and not be so easily offended.

VeggieTales Celery Night Fever DVD Giveaway

Chances are you have already talked to your own kids sometime this summer about forgiving a sibling or a close friend. Even in the best relationships, things can happen that lend to disagreements and forgiveness. Would you like to share this awesome VeggieTales Celery Night Fever DVD with your family ??

Making Every Day a Dawn Destinations Getaway #MyDawnSummer

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Dawn. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, as always all opinions are 100% mine
 Dawn Destinations New Zealand

After returning home from a fun and super relaxing beach vacation last week, getting back into the daily grind seemed a little more than…..well, underwhelming. I really was wishing for just 100 1 more day before we were torn away from the smell of salt water and the crashing sounds of ocean waves. I missed watching the tide roll in and feeling sand between my toes while we looked for shells. I was so pitiful my husband started teasing  me even saying he thought I may have developed post-vacation depression.

This summer was going to be a long one if I didn’t find a way to snap out of it- and soon!  I decided to find some simple ways to make each day of summer a little bit more like our relaxing vacation. Challenge accepted! First stop on our tour, we’re off to the kitchen to tackle Mt. Dishmore.

Making Every Day a Dawn Destinations Getaway

Setting up my “at-home-vacation-workstation” was my first task. Near the sink, I placed one of my favorite beach vacation pictures, a little sand and a few shells from our trip, and a bottle of Dawn Destinations. We always use Dawn on our dishes because of its powerful grease cutting  ability. I was happy to see Dawn Destinations delivered the same grease-cleaning  results I expected in new relaxing scents.

Dawn grease cutting power

The pleasant scent of Dawn New Zealand Springs reminded me of the clear fresh vacation waters I had been missing. Even though I was doing dishes in my own kitchen, I found myself  a bit more calm and relaxed. (I may also have benefited from the lack of “Mooom, I’mmm bored” that pause when chores are being done.)

The moral of this story? Remember to breathe deep. Seek out simple, everyday moments to stay balanced and centered,  even if it is escaping at the sink with the exotic scents of Dawn Destinations.

Before I knew it the dishes were done and I was ready to relax and rest for night.

Since I tend to carry a lot of stress in my shoulders and neck, a warm aromatherapy pillow on these muscles before bed really helps them to relax and I sleep much more soundly.  This is a simple and inexpensive DIY project you can make for yourself or someone else as a gift.

Dawn Destinations DIY AROMATHERAPY Pillow

You will need:

  • A tube sock
  • A mini sewing kit
  • 8-10 oz of dry rice
  • Lavender oil


  1. Fill the tube sock with the dry rice so that is about two-thirds to three-quarters full
  2. Add 15-20 drops of lavender oil
  3. Carefully sew the sock shut so that the rice does not fall out
  4. Microwave and apply as needed to help relieve neck and shoulder tension

Ready to experience Dawn Destinations for yourself??
