One Day, he’ll thank me for this app

It’s often debated how much a blogger should involve their children in the online world. We tell some of their stories and share lots of their pictures. And then we wonder how much is too much? My son Evan has been a big part of my blog since I started in 2009 but not because […]

August Audio Fest at Best Buy with the Samsung M5 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker: So Easy A Girl Can Do It

Print

It’s a good thing I don’t get asked to review too many shiny objects. Because I would do it every. single. time. Pretty, shiny, luxurious, and high tech. Those are probably my favorite review categories. Oh, and delicious. I love a good food review once in a while. But today, it’s all tech and it’s […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 12

Show and Tell

I’m almost to episode 13 which would give me a full season of Show & Tell Tuesday. Don’t 13 episodes make a season? Then I can start selling it as a boxed set with never before seen footage! And exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews! Or I can just keep filming stuff like this. It’s a little technical […]

How Leaky Batteries Became Taboo at My House

Battery Leakage

We had lovely evening plan for New Year’s Eve last year. Lovely for a suburban family of three, that is. No partying all night or spending extravagant amounts of money on downtown celebrations. Nope. We were opting for a steak dinner on the grill at our neighbors’ house. They also have a family of three […]

All The Ways To Say… Why did I take that picture? {Giveaway}

bookstome-giveaway

A few short months ago, I made an infomercial highly entertaining video describing all of the benefits of using a service like BooksTo.Me. And I wrote a very informative post about what it was all about including a highly pinnable image. But just in case I can’t convince you to click back and read the entire post […]

What to do with all those Instagram photos

Instagram1

My instagramming has a very distinct style and my Instagram profile kind of says it all: I like interesting photos and colorful filters. But the style is also about when I take photos. Unlike Facebook and Twitter, Instagram isn’t an every day social media tool for me. If it was, it would get a little […]

Top 5 Time-Wasting Apps for Your iPhone

Waste all the time

You think you came here for a rant about Facebook, right? No. We usually rant about Facebook on Facebook. You know. Where it will do some good. I’m not going to rant about Facebook because it’s a given that it’s a waste of time. We all know that and accept that and embrace that. But on your […]

What to Watch on a Saturday Night

Netflix-AppleTV-HiRes

Remember the days when you and your loved one would think about plans for going out on a Saturday night? Yeah, me neither. I do remember being in my 20s and wondering why my married friends never wanted to do anything on the weekends. They lived such a boring life. How could they stand it? I used […]

Using the computer for MORE than Minecraft

Evan-minecraft

So was that title total link bait? Maybe. Because I’m not going to talk about Minecraft. I’m going to talk about things other than Minecraft. Because if you’re a mom like me, to a little boy like Evan, you totally need a break from talking about that game. And trust me, I feel your pain. If your family is […]

Eureka! I found a new vacuum!

IMG_8985

You clicked on this post title because clearly you have a thing for vacuums. Or you’re looking for a new vacuum. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. But first, let me start with a confession. I love to vacuum. Maybe you didn’t quite hear me. I LOVE TO VACUUM! As strange as that […]

A Boy, His Office, and a Laptop

Computers

Does a 6 year old need a laptop? That was the question I posed on my Facebook page about two weeks ago. And it wasn’t so much need because we all know a 6 year old doesn’t need anything of the sort. It was more like, is it totally cuckoo to consider getting a laptop for […]
