Proud to Be An American Book – By Lee Greenwood


Wow!  I was just browsing and saw this as a top selling children’s book!  Head on over to check out Proud to Be An American book by Lee Greenwood!  Illustrated children’s book of the lyrics to God Bless The USA.  I’m totally grabbing this one NOW for my kids!

From the best-known patriotic song, GOD BLESS the USA, a kid’s book is now available for the first time. With multiple artists performing this song over 30 years on various venues, a new generation of kids will now read the words, see the illustrations, and understand what it means to be an American. Written by Lee Greenwood and illustrated by Amanda Sekulow, the journey across America with a man and his grandson brings the song and story home. Lee will be promoting this book throughout the country with live performances on stage and in studio. Launch will be Memorial Day, 2015, with appearances at BEA and possibly ICRS. Lee has appeared on Hannity, Huckabee and other national shows and will carry this book to promote patriotism as a new generation of Americans emerge.

Lee Greenwood knows first-hand what it’s like to have loved ones fighting for the freedom of all Americans, as his father served in the Navy and the Merchant Marine in World War II. Still, “God Bless the USA” went far beyond what Greenwood expected when he wrote it in the back of his tour bus in 1983. “God Bless the USA” has since been voted the most recognizable patriotic song in America. It is the only song to have been in the top five on the country singles charts three times (1991, 2001, and 2003). It was also #1 on the pop charts after 9/11/01.

Life Happens

Once again, life is happening.  I almost feel like never making plans because when I do, they change in a heartbeat.  This week, we planned on spending the week in Dahlonega having some family time before work gets super busy for my husband this summer.  I should have known better because right before we were leaving to head to the mountains, my mom fell ill.  Ill enough to need the ER, and then was admitted to the hospital.  I’ve spent the past 2 days sitting in the not-so-comfy chairs at the hospital and being an advocate for my mom to receive the best care.

In all of this, I can’t help but laugh about how life happens.  You never know how your plans may change.  I hope you all had a fantastic day!

Six Flags over Georgia Introduces 2 New Rides!

Great news in time for summer adventures!  Six Flags over Georgia introduced 2 new rides!  I had the opportunity to debut them yesterday!  Don’t worry, I didn’t ride them since I’m almost 25 weeks pregnant, but we sure had fun anyways!  Check out this loop!

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 6.24.38 PM

THE JOKER Chaos Coaster joins BATMAN: The Ride and Mind Bender roller coasters in Gotham City and features:

  • A “face-off” unique seating pattern, as the train’s twenty-four riders begin their journey;
  • The train rocketing up seven stories high;
  • A glide, both forward and backward, through a bedlam of loops;
  • A suspended upside down roll, 72 feet in the air, for a ravaging thrill.

Also debuting is Harley Quinn Spinsanity, which sends riders spinning, twisting and rolling through a cycle of classic family-fun.  It’s very much like one of my favorite carnival rides, the tilt-a-whirl!  If I wasn’t pregnant, I would totally have been on this numerous times!

BATMANTM: The Ride, inspired by DC Comics’ iconic Super Hero, will continue sending its riders backward through 2,700 feet of track at speeds of 50 miles per hour until later this spring.

Six Flags Over Georgia is now open daily through August 9.

Everyone has a lot to learn about each other, but when Coach realizes the boys’ exceptional running ability, things change.

Available on Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack, Disney Movies Anywhere + Digital HD June 2nd

I don’t know about y’all but there are many times in my life when I feel like I’ve triumphed over an obstacle.  For starters, each time I’ve had a child, I’ve triumphed over that obstacle, and boy was it ever a hurdle!  We’ve also come from a time when my husband was suddenly laid off and our first child was about 8 months old.  That was definitely an obstacle and we’ve seen our way through it with patience and perseverance.

One lucky reader will win a Digital Download code so you can watch this movie with your family.  Simply comment and tell me about a time in your life when you were able to triumph over an obstacle.  Giveaway ends 6/2.
