Newlywed and Broke... The I love Lucy for 2013! Check It Out!


Easy

When I saw the name of this project, I was immediately intrigued.  "Newlywed and Broke"  certainly brings me back to a time when we were floating in overdraft charges and Ramen noodles (my husband has 100 ways to make Ramen but that is another post for another time) but frankly, we were pretty happy.

It is true that some of our best and funniest memories were before we had really established ourselves financially. 

If you can relate to my memories of being broke and newlywed or even just broke then you will love the "Newlywed and Broke" project.  

The stars of this project are Reko and Kat and they want to raise enough money to make their real life trials and tribulations into a web series that will hopefully get picked up by network television.  

This really is the "I love Lucy" for 2013.

The only problem is that, you guessed it, they are Newlywed and Broke!  Really it is a vicious cycle.  

Take a look at their video on IndieGoGo and then keep reading to find out how to support their project!

Newlywed and Broke: An IndieGoGo Campaign from Ingenium on Vimeo

At the time of this post, the campaign has raised just over $10,000 which is fabulous but they still need to meet the goal of $25,000.  

Besides helping to meet the obvious goal, I think telling the marketing people what we want to see via crowdfunding is an incredibly neat concept.  

In fact, this is the first time that crowdfunding manager, John-Michael Scott and crowdfunding campaign promoter, Philip Cardwell have joined forces in support of a crowdfunding film project.

Once you have made a donation, there are so many great ways to keep tabs on how the project is coming along.

Check them out on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.

Also if you have a great Broke Tip leave it in the comments of the IndieGoGo page and they will consider using it!  

So many cool ways to get involved!

Studio Movie Grill Houston - The Ultimate Movie Watching Experience!


Easy

Recently I did a press trip to Houston sponsored through the GoHouston! Travel Campaign hosted by New Creative Writing and Social Media Marketing. As always all opinions are my own.

I love this concept! This was a totally new experience since we don't have anything like this in Utah. And with 12 locations anyone lucky enough to live remotely near one should take advantage of it especially SMG City Centre.

Usually dinner or lunch and a movie are separate unless I do them at home and when you have kids you are so tired at the end of the day that when you finally have your date night it's generally one or the other, not both.

Needless to say this was a real treat for me and my hubby!

While we managed a little time away from our kids during this trip, all through the experience we thought about how much they would love to eat while watching a movie.

It's perfect for families as well because while kids are munching away they can be watching a new release in the theater.

As soon as we walked in we noticed that the staff was super friendly and ready to help us figure out what we were doing. lol

We decided to see World War Z, which was amazing!!! But I will tell you more about that later.

It was so interesting to go in a theater that doesn't have 300 seats.

It's almost like you are a celebrity going to some event and being waited on.

Unfortunately just like a celebrity I thought I knew better and I didn't take one of the staffs suggestions for seating and I picked different seats.

Needless to say the staff knows what they are talking about, so if you have never been before be sure to ask them for their recommendation for the best seats. lol

As for the food it was fantastic! We shared the Chicken tenders and fries and they were yummy!

It was a little weird watching a zombie movie while eating food, so this may be better for some movies than others. lol

All in all it was an awesome experience and the service was great! Can't wait to go back! And I wish they would build some in Utah.  (hint, hint)

If you are looking for the Ultimate Movie Watching Experience head over and make a reservation at The Studio Movie Grill!
