Adorable “Finding Dory” Movie Hits Store Shelves Tomorrow!


For those who absolutely fell in love with the adorable Finding Nemo series a couple years back (“Just Keep Swimming!”), the sequel, Finding Dory, will be hitting store shelves on DVD and Blu-Ray as of tomorrow, November 15th! Featuring some of the same well-loved cast as the original, Finding Dory follows the adorably talkative blue fish through a heartwarming quest to find her family. Making it easy to enjoy this Pixar and Disney movie however you prefer, you can find Finding Dory on Blu-Ray 3D, Blu-Ray, DVD, and On-Demand starting tomorrow. If you enjoy watching your movies digitally, the movie is already available on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA)!

When you pick up the DVD, you’re going to be impressed by all of the content the movie comes with. In addition to the adorable “Piper” theatrical short that captured the love of audience members, the DVD includes loads of other bonus materials. You’ll enjoy commentaries, deleted scenes, information about animation and challenges they overcame, and a lot of educational information about aquatic and sea animal life. It’s a lot of extra features in addition to the movie itself!


I know I had a blast making a “Finding Dory” movie night an awesome, family affair. Lots of craft stores (and probably your local big box store!) are selling Finding Dory party accessories and other toys, and it was simple to pick up Cupcake Toppers and a themed Cupcake Display and make an afternoon of getting excited to watch the movie that evening.

I enjoyed the movie itself, and I think most families – and lovers of the original Finding Nemo series – are going to love it. However, my heart definitely fell in love with the baby sandpiper, Piper. A short that’s included with the movie, Piper features an adorable, baby sandpiper who is learning how to feed himself – and finds himself a new love in the things that scare him the most. It’s absolutely adorable, and that 6-minute short would be easily worth repurchasing the entire set for me. Loved it!

Remember to check out your local stores starting November 15th (tomorrow!) when Finding Dory will be available on store shelves! Talk about a great holiday gift!

California Pizza Kitchen Now Offers Gluten-Free Pizza Options!


Love pizza? I know I do! California Pizza Kitchen, the authority on California-style pizza, now offers a full line of gluten-free pizzas! In partnership with the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG), these pizzas were made for Celiac-disease sufferers to contain the same deliciousness of their regular pizza while being gluten-free.

Available in their restaurants nationwide, their four gluten-free pizzas are prepared using the strict procedures set forth and approved by the GIG including a certified-gluten-free pizza crust as well as gluten-free ingredients. To help maintain gluten-free standards, the GIG will regularly do site inspections and audits to make sure guidelines are being met. While these pizzas work wonderfully for gluten-free dieters, they were especially designed to be strict enough that Celiac-disease sufferers need not worry about gluten contamination.

So what offerings can gluten-free eaters choose from? Delicious gluten-free pizza options include The Original BBQ Chicken Pizza, Pepperoni, Mushroom Pepperoni Sausage, and Margherita. Alongside these full gluten-free options, any of their regular pizzas can also be made on a gluten-free crust for an additional $2 – so you can get your favorite pizza on gluten-free crust if you want!

So gluten-free eaters, you can now enjoy delicious dinners at California Pizza Kitchen! (I just wish they had ones in Iowa!)

Hot Deals Now Coming to I Heart Giveaways!

There are already a ton, ton, ton of deal sites out there! I’m sure you already are following quite a few different ones, and I know that I am too. With that in mind, it’d be totally silly for me to post match-ups or post other things that are already completely available on the internet. So I won’t.

Instead, I’m going to focus about posting about specific things that you may be able to get a deal on. This may not be grocery/household focused like many deal sites are, and I’ll try to give you a head’s up on some of the best deals out there. Especially those including video games and other fun household items as I rarely see deal posts about them. However, the focus for I Heart Giveaways is, and will always be, giveaways and reviews, so these posts will just come out as I see a fantastic deal I think you should look into! These posts will show on the homepage as regular posts, but if you’re looking to purely see the “Hot Deals” and not reviews and giveaways, the heading “Hot Deals!” near the banner at the top of the site will only show the deals to you.

In case you aren’t following any deal sites, my absolutely favorites are: I Heart Wags, Saving Well Spending Less, and The Krazy Coupon Lady.
