Tech Tuesday: Spring into Travel Adventures with Verizon Tech

Verizon Tech provided me with products for the purpose of testing and sharing my experience. All opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own.

If you are planning a spring (or summer) getaway, what are you packing as you plan your travel adventure? I absolutely must pack technology even when vacations are a time to get away from it all. There’s always a plan to blog more (especially now that I have a second blog), so I do usually bring my computer, but the technology I must bring along is usually geared toward making the trip a bit more hassle-free and fun, bonus points if it’s an active trip! keep reading

Mother’s Day Gifting Through the Years

There is something incredibly special about the Mother’s Day gifting of hand-drawn cards and hand-picked flowers from my kids. And I am sure that my own Mom enjoyed these sentimental things, too.

Mother’s Day Gifting

As the kids get older, I know those sweet gifts will be received less and less. Mother’s Day gifting really changes through the years, even as a mom myself, I’m not great at remembering to pick up something nice for my mom and mom-in-love when their holiday comes around. keep reading

One of my mom’s most treasured pieces of jewelry is her mother’s ring. She has two, one for me/Greg/my brother and another for her grands. Both are stunning, so when US Family Guide asked if I’d be interested in working with Mama’s Jewelry to share their collection of mothers rings, I just had to say yes. keep reading

Eclipse Curtains – Reduce Light & Noise for Better Sleep

We received a set of Eclipse Curtains in exchange for our honest review. All opinions, as always, are 100% our own.

When you have a house full of kids who are totally the younger sister from a certain movie about ice and sisterly love and they believe if the sun is up they are up…having reduced light and noise is a true blessing. The twins had been struggling with Daylight Savings Time when our package from Eclipse Curtains arrived with blackout panels for their room. Call it an early birthday present for dad and mom, these beauties have made a difference! keep reading

Ripple Safety Device

Disclaimer: I received product/service in exchange for this post about the Ripple safety device. All opinions are 100% my own.

When I first was told about the Ripple Safety Device, my mind went straight to where most of my focus has been lately – to running. I even blogged about it over on mrsgregwillis the other day with that exact focus. But in thinking more about it, Ripple isn’t just for keeping runners safe, it’s great for anyone who needs to feel safe and could be a great device to give your kids as you start letting them “have some wings”. keep reading
