Daddy's Home 2: Laugh Out Loud, Family Fun!

Family... they make us who we are!  I think we can all agree on that.  Am I right?  My family and I couldn't wait to see Daddy's Home 2 the moment we saw the previews.  We had seen Daddy's Home and loved it, so I jumped at the chance to receive Daddy's Home 2 to watch at home with my family in exchange for sharing my thoughts with all of you.

 

My husband, son (17), daughter (14) and I all loved Daddy's Home 2 as much as we did the original.  Often times the sequel doesn't "hold up" to the original, but that was not the case with this one!  We were laughing throughout the entire movie!

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.  – It’s more daddies and more problems in the uproarious family comedy DADDY’S HOME 2.  When it comes to raising their kids, Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and Brad (Will Ferrell) finally have this co-parenting thing down.  That is, until Dusty’s macho dad (Mel Gibson) and Brad’s sweet-natured father (John Lithgow) come to town, throwing the whole family into complete chaos.  As old rivalries create new problems, Dusty and Brad’s partnership is put to the ultimate test in this hilarious and heartwarming comedy that gives new meaning to the term ‘blended family.’

Reward Your Dogs with Rachael Ray Soup Bones

I can't even begin to tell you how spoiled my two dogs are!  Sometimes I feel as though I have 4 children instead of two children and 2 furry "children" living in the house!

I am fortunate enough to be a Chewy Influencer and in exchange for my honest reviews, my two spoiled pups get special food and treats, delivered right to our door, every month!  Zena (English Mastiff) and Thor (Great Dane/Mastiff) are lucky dogs!  When they see the blue Chewy.com box being delivered, it's almost like they know it's for them!

This month, Zena and Thor had the pleasure of trying out two new kinds of bones!  One was the Benebone Wishbone chew toy and the other were the delicious Rachael Ray Soup Bones!

Rachael Ray Soup Bones

This long-lasting chew is made with real meat and veggies and has all the deliciousness of a wholesome soup bone with none of the splintering or mess. There’s even a tender meaty center inside made without meaty by-products or artificial flavors. These delicious treats are also for small, medium or large dogs so they are perfect for multiple-pup households.

Zena and Thor LOVED these soup bones!  They lasted longer than the usual crunchy dog treat, which they both chomp down in a matter of seconds!  They were easy for them to eat and worked double to clean their teeth and freshen their breath!

Rachael Ray Soup Bones also come in a variety of dog approved flavors: chicken & veggies, turkey & rice, and beef & barley.  They also come in two sizes, regular and mini!

Give Your Dog a Bone... a Benebone

Are you a pet owner that likes to save time and money on the items you purchase for your pet?  Whether it be food, treats, toys, or litter... Chewy has you covered.  Chewy.com  offers over 1,000 brands of pet food, treats and supplies and offer FREE shipping!

I am fortunate enough to be a Chewy Influencer and in exchange for my honest reviews, my two spoiled pups get special food and treats, delivered right to our door, every month!  Zena (English Mastiff) and Thor (Great Dane/Mastiff) are lucky dogs!  When they see the blue Chewy.com box being delivered, it's almost like they know it's for them!


Zena and Thor's newest treat was a bacon flavored Benebone dog chew!  At first they weren't too sure what to think about it.  They both sniffed it and walked away.  I left it there and knew that they would both return.


Benebone's Wishbone Chew isn't your dog's average chew toy. Made with real crushed ingredients and durable nylon, the ergonomic wishbone will keep your dog chewing and each prong has deep flavor grooves to keep him interested. 

As if that wasn't enough, with your purchase you'll also be supporting animal welfare nationwide as a portion of all Benebone sales are donated to animal support organizations!

Since both of our dogs are large,  it is important for us to find durable chew toys for them.  They destroy most chew toys in no time at all.  The Benebone Wishbone is 1 of 2 dog toys that they haven't been able to chew into tiny pieces!


Benebone Wishbone dog chews come in 3 dog-pleasing flavors; Rotisserie Chicken, Peanut Butter and Bacon! 

Chewy allows you to shop over 500 pet brands and have them delivered right to your door with free 1-2 day shipping and 24/7 customer service!  In addition to their vast inventory, Chewy.com has the goal to create the largest shelter and rescue program designed to support non-profit organizations that help animals in need.

Tylee’s Jerky Human-Grade Dog Treats (Review)

Are you a pet owner that likes to save time and money?  Did you know that Chewy.com  offers over 1,000 brands of pet food, treats and supplies and offer FREE shipping?   

 

I am fortunate enough to be a Chewy Influencer and in exchange for my honest reviews, my two spoiled pups get special food and treats, delivered right to our door, every month!  Zena (English Mastiff) and Thor (Great Dane/Mastiff) are lucky dogs!  When they see the blue Chewy.com box being delivered, it's almost like they know it's for them!

Thor and Zena's most recent delivery included a package of jerky treats!  Tylee's Jerky Human-Grade Dog Treats are made with 100% real meat and come in three different flavors; turkey, pork and chicken.  In fact, these jerky dog treats are human-grade... 

I will admit that when I opened the bag, I was tempted to taste it myself.  So was my 16 year-old son, he actually thought it was a bag of jerky for us, until he read the package!  It literally looks and smells like jerky we eat ourselves!

Ringing in 2018 - Happy New Year!

The Being Frugal and Making it Work family would like to wish you a Happy New Year!  I hope that the New Year brings you success and happiness.
