Stan the Lovesick Snowman: Love Warms Even the Coldest Heart Jan. 2-Feb. 2 at Center For Puppetry Arts

A snowman falls head-over-heels for a stove at the Center for Puppetry Arts

Opposites attract in this charming tale of unrequited love.  Stan the Lovesick Snowman plays at the Center for Puppetry Arts Jan. 2 – Feb. 2, 2014.  Stan’s adorable story begins after a chance encounter with a dog that has been sent outside in the wintry cold.  The dog tells the snowman about a warm stove inside the house, and with a “crack-crackle” in his heart, Stan falls in love with the wood-burning beauty.   The unlikely romance, doomed from the start, is only the beginning in this hilarious and heartwarming tale as Stan later discovers that a young snowwoman is swooning over him as well.

Adapted and directed by the Center’s artistic director, Jon Ludwig, Stan the Lovesick Snowman is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s short story “The Snow Man.” 

It was a natural fit for this winter-inspired show to follow on the tails of our popular holiday classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” said Ludwig. “Stan is the ultimate hopeless romantic.  There is so much humor in a snowman in love with a wood stove and there is a sweet lesson that ‘love will win in the end.’  Let’s warm ourselves up with a charming tale of misdirected love and knowing who your real friends are!”

Husband and wife puppeteer-duo, Tim and Amy Sweeney, portray 13 characters in the production including Stan the Snowman, Abigail the Snowwoman, Alice the Dog, the Moose Mailman, a trouble making Cat and more.  This delightful fairy tale, recommended for ages 4 and up, will melt the hearts of audiences everywhere.

Stan the Lovesick Snowman is presented in the Downstairs Theater, Jan. 2 – Feb. 2, 2014. Show times are as follows:

·         Tuesday – Friday: 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
·         Saturday: 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
·         Sunday: 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
The Center for Puppetry Arts will be closed January 1 (New Year’s Day); no performances on that date.

Tickets include Museum admission as well as the Create-A-Puppet Workshop (or To-Go Kit), where children can make their own Stan the Snowman rod puppet.

Don't Go Noseblind! Breathe Happy With Febreze {Review + Giveaway}

*This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.*

When you have pets at home like us, it is very common to become noseblind, to the lingering odor they leave behind. We have two dogs, two cats, and we often foster rescues until they are ready to be adopted. The problem of becoming noseblind, is that you always have the doubt in the back of your mind that your house smells funny. 

I don't know about you but I panic when I know someone is coming over to visit. I clean the house from top to bottom, but I'm never fully satisfied because I always worry about odor infestation, in other words, what your guests overwhelmingly smell as soon as they walk in the door. Let's be real, we all know that person that can track scents like bloodhound. They can follow the scent trail and no matter how well you clean they can always find it.

Our friends at Febreze invited us to …

My Stress-Free Thanksgiving Dinner - Why Honeybaked Ham is My New Best Friend

Don't sweat the small stuff! Have a Happy Thanksgiving with Honeybaked Ham!
No matter how much I plan a sensible Thanksgiving dinner, I always over-plan, over-work, and over-spend. This year I'll try a different approach. Cook as little as possible and leave the rest to Honeybaked ham. I'm willing to cook a 30 minute side dish (just one) and bake a simple dessert (apple crème brûlée bread pudding) but besides those two things (that can easily be made the day ahead) my kitchen will not be open during the holidays.
This year I choose to be happy and stress free for Thanksgiving. I refuse to slave all day in the kitchen. As much as I enjoy cooking there are days I wish I have a personal chef at home that could cook for me. Since I don't see this remotely happening, the best thing I could do is order the Honeybaked Ham Whole Turkey Feast. Perfect for the Holidays and special celebrations, this gourmet feast includes a whole roasted turkey, old-fashioned cornbread dressing, …
