Repurpose a Wooden Pallet into a Raised Bed for Gardening

A few years back I built a flower garden around a tree in the middle of the yard using bricks.  It's pretty, but the tree is getting HUGE and we really need to relocate the flower bed (after my flowers bloom this year, so we don't hurt the bulbs!).  However, my daughter had gotten some seeds and really wanted to plant them somewhere.  It just so happened that we had all these pallets we were about to do different projects with, so she got to make a Raised Bed out of a Wooden Pallet!

First we had Dad paint it red for her.  We used a sample that we had free from Lowe's a year or so ago.

Then we filled it with soil and let her and her brothers plant the seeds!

Planting the seeds

All finished
Now we just wait for the flowers to sprout!

Total cost: $2.98

Pallet: Free
Soil: Leftover from a previous project PLUS a small bag that I paid 98¢ for at Walmart
Seeds: 4 packs at 50¢ each

Local Clearance Alert: Honey Smacks 15.3 oz 75% off at Schillingers/Airport CVS

Local Readers: If you love Kellogg's Honey Smacks then you'll want to check out this deal!!

I stopped by the CVS on Schillinger's Road by Target (just South of Airport Blvd, across from Home Depot and Golden Corral) and was excited to find Kellogg's Honey Smacks 15.3 oz on clearance.  They were marked 75% off!!  After the discount the price is $1.45.  I grabbed two boxes and the expiration on them is December.

I'm not sure if this is something that is being done at all CVS stores or if this particular CVS is the only one doing it.  If you aren't local and you like Honey Smacks, it'd be worth checking your local store to see if they have them marked down.

47 Ronin, Starring Keanu Reeves, Available TODAY (April 1) on Blu-Ray and DVD

Keanu Reeves stars in the action-adventure epic, 47 Ronin.  After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and reclaim their honor.  This band of ronin must seek help from Kai (Reeves)- an enslaved half-breed they once rejected - in their ultimate fight for redemption in a savage world of mythic and wondrous terrors.  Kai becomes their most deadly weapon and the heroic inspiration for these outnumbered warriors to confront their enemy and seize eternity.

Blu-Ray Exclusives:
Keanu & Kai: Keanu Reeves embodies one of cinema's most richly imagined heroes as Kai, the outcast who leads a small band of rebels against an army and supernatural enemies.  Along with Reeves, director Carl Rinsch and other key voices from the filmmaking team reveal how this adventure would not be possible without Reeves' mastery of martial arts and total immersion in the role.
Steel Fury: The Fights of 47 Ronin:  This featurette explores the intense research, choreography and rehearsals that went into creating the film's unique action sequences, including Kai's epic battle against the silver Samurai and the heart-stopping Kirin hunt sequence.
Myths, Magic & Monsters: The FX of 47 Ronin: 47 Ronin's world-class creative team reveals the technological magic it used to bring to life the creatures of ancient Japanese folklore, including The Kirin (a giant hybrid beast with the head of a dragon and the body of a deer), the Kitsune witch, the Oni troll, and the demonic Tengu Monks.

Additional Features:
Re-forging the Legend: The story of 47 Ronin is one of Japan's most time-honored legends.  The filmmakers talk about how they brought this "dream world" to the big screen, from script to costumes, visual design, and culture.
Deleted Scenes

I'll be honest with y'all, action/adventure films are not my cup of tea.  I wanted the chance to review the title mostly for my Mom and husband who LOVE action/adventure movies.  So, I ended up watching the movie twice...once with my Mom and once with my husband.  They both thoroughly enjoyed it and said it was a great movie.  I loved the special effects used so I even enjoyed it!  Oh, and of course, I am not going to complain about watching Keanu Reeves for 2 hours! haha

If you love Japanese films, action/adventure films, special effects, or Keanu Reeves, you'll want to add 47 Ronin to your DVD or Blu-Ray library.

I have a pega-sister and a brony in my household.  For those not familiar with My Little Pony Lingo, a Pega-sister is a girl who likes MLP and a brony is a boy who likes MLP.  To say we have a lot of My Little Pony stuff around would be an understatement.  We have toys, movies, stuffed name it, we have it!  So, I knew A Dash Of Awesome would be a MUST HAVE for the kids, and I was right.  Rainbow Dash is their favorite pony, but even if she wasn't they'd still love the DVD.  If you have a MLP fan in your household, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic: A Dash Of Awesome will definitely win them over!  Easter is just around the corner as well, and I cannot think of a better Easter Basket filler for a Pega-sister or a Brony!
