It's here: Studio Movie Grill Marietta is open! #ATL

Our family of four was treated to a free screening of Pixar's Coco with appetizers and drinks at the brand new Studio Movie Grill Marietta for the purpose of sharing our experience with you. All opinions are 100% mine.

Studio Movie Grill Marietta is open!

The innovative thinkers at Studio Movie Grill opened their 29th location last week with the grand opening of Studio Movie Grill Marietta, just a quick drive up I-75 from the city of Atlanta. The 49,000-square-foot space has 11 dine-in auditoriums. In addition, you can relax before or after the movie in the well-stocked bar or on the outdoor patio lined with cozy fire columns. The drink menu includes wine, beer, liquor, and soft drinks.

My family enjoyed the crispy chicken bites, soft pretzel bites with queso dip, and popcorn during our visit. The kids stayed refreshed with water while the husband and I each had a complimentary beer (complimentary only during our media event; menu prices will apply). The food came out hot and tasty and everyone was happy with their movie munchies.You can preview the Studio Movie Grill menu here




The theater was very comfortable. We enjoyed the custom-made leather recliners. The theater seats have swiveling table tops with a cup holder and a push button for service. The wait staff was attentive and friendly, and they did not distract us from the movie at all. They are very careful to duck down and move quickly within the aisles when serving.

Unique Halloween costumes for tweens who want to stand out

Halloween costumes for tweens, kids, and adults are everywhere beginning as early as September 25th. Does your family have have their Halloween costumes selected yet?  This year, the usual super heroes, princesses, and witches are joined with Minecraft and LEGO characters as some of the most popular. 

Tweens are at the age where they want to be cool and Mom and Dad do not want them to be too grown up (sexy tweens... not cool). So what if your 9-12 year old wants to choose from unique Halloween costumes for tweens? Where can you look? 

Most likely, Halloween superstores pop up in your area (or a nearby city) before the calendar reads October.  Take some time to walk around one of these stores or browse websites if you have time for shipping. You can find some great ideas that are unique for kids and fun-loving adults as well. 

Here are a few favorites that were approved by me (mom) and my daughter (tween):

Unique Halloween costumes for tweens  

Spirit Halloween and Halloween Megastore are two costume and decor themed shops that appear in the southeast US for holiday needs. We fell in love with these unique costume ideas:

This one from Spirit Halloween is a perfect mix of fantasy and toughness, with the hooded cloak and bow and arrow. This girl doesn't need a dress for a royal ball! She's outdoorsy and strong.

Coupons to save money on books and school supplies

This post was written in conjunction with a US Family Guide media effort on behalf of Groupon Coupons. All opinions in this article are 100% mine. 



Kids are expensive; do you use coupons to save money?

The K-12 students in our area have been in school for almost a month now, and I think the rest of the country is finally catching up and getting back to class. While the initial school supply lists are probably completed, you can usually expect to have more on your shopping list within those first few months. We usually end up with additional classroom requests, holiday celebration prep, or fiction and non-fiction books to purchase from a reading list. Our nine-year-old daughter is an avid reader, and Barnes and Noble is one of her favorite places. School and soccer season are busy here, but I always make sure to have her stocked with great books to read. Reading is ideal for resting her body before a big game and giving her down time before bed on a long school day.


Everyone knows Groupon, right? The site/app with 70,000 deals on over 9,000 retailers also has coupons! Groupon Coupons offers a multitude of coupons, both printable and online, for hundreds of your favorite go-to retailers. Save money on books with Barnes and Noble coupons.
