Day 3: The Holidays According to Kristin



Hey everyone!

So Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I’m sure we’re all preparing to stuff our faces! Some of us might even be prepping our Black Friday shopping extravaganza!

My Thanksgiving traditions have changed a bit over the years because we’ve had some losses in the family, but there are still little things we can do to start new ones, right?

About a year ago my brother sent me a text with a recipe for a dessert that looked absolutely delicious. It’s like a pumpkin/pudding/cool whip pan of Heaven! We all loved it so much, I decided to make it for my office at Halloween. Let’s just say…don’t make it for your office potlucks if you don’t want it being requested every single time! haha.


This is one dessert I’ve enjoyed making with my niece because there are four layers to it, and she loves being able to say she helped contribute to the awesomeness.

So here is the link to Lil’ Luna’s Pumpkin Delight Dessert. Try it out and let me know if you love it as much as we do! Also, let me know what your favorite Thanksgiving dishes are!

From my family to yours…have a VERY Happy Thanksgiving!  🙂

HANDS OF STONE DVD Release 11/22

HANDS OF STONE DVD Release 11/22

In celebration of the DVD release of HANDS OF STONE on November 22 we honor the man who was called “Manos de Pierda” Roberto Duran.

Roberto Duran can arguably be considered the best lightweight boxer of the 20th century, and one of the greatest boxers of all time.

With a career that spanned over three decades and world titles in four different weight classes, Duran was coined “Manos de Pierta” or “Hands of Stone” for his devastating punching power.

By the time the Hall of Famer retired, he had accumulated an astonishing record of 103 victories of which 70 were knockouts for a 68% knockout ratio.

“Hands of Stone” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival May 16, 2016 and follows the life of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), the Panamanian fighter who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year-old and retired in 2002 at the age of 50.

In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) to capture the WBC Welterweight title, but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in their November rematch, famously saying the words “no mas” (no more.)

The film is directed and written by Jonathan Jakubowicz.

BAD SANTA 2 is Coming to Town

BAD SANTA 2 is Coming to Town
In Theaters Nov. 23

Written by Angela Maria Ortiz Sinclair (

“Bad Santa 2” returns Academy Award-winner Billy Bob Thornton to the screen as America’s favorite anti-hero, Willie Soke; and joining him is, Tony Cox, Brett Kelly, and Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy-winner Kathy Bates as Willie’s horror story of a mother, Sunny Soke, and Christina Hendricks of Mad Men fame.

It has been thirteen years since the first “Bad Santa” and I don’t remember much of it and I will have to re-watch it.

This one has a few laughs and at times it made you pause and think.

Yes, it’s over the top and everyone looks like they are all in on the joke.

We got to sit in on a q&a with the main cast and director Mark Waters and we had some good laughs.

Now you can listen in too. Check out the audio from the press day HERE.

Also starring Jenny Zigrino, Ryan Hansen, and Cristina Rosato.

Check out the Red Band trailer, it’s a wild one.
