It’s EASY: #ShareATree to Plant A Tree!

Written in partnership with Green is Universal and the Arbor Day Foundation. I will receive a gift in return for writing this post. Any opinions are my own.

Green is Universal and the Arbor Day Foundation have teamed up once again for their annual Share a Tree campaign! For every digital tree shared before the end of December, the Arbor Day Foundation will plant a tree! SO EASY!


And for every 25,000 trees shared, Green is Universal will donate $5,000! They’ve created a virtual forest and you can visit the site, decorate a tree (it doesn’t take long!), and then easily share it on social media. Watch the #ShareATree hashtag, too, because if you RT or share someone else’s tree, that counts, too!

Click here to decorate and Share a Tree!


Included in the forest are about 40 trees that were drawn by celebrities like Al Roker, Dolvett Quince, and Meredith Vieira. So if you don’t feel like decorating your own tree, you can share one of the awesome “Celebratrees” instead! Just click on their tree and easily share it on your social media account to plant a tree.

The Share a Tree Program will help the Arbor Day Foundation plant trees all across the United States in our national forests, state forests, and state parks.


Two places trees will be planted is in Michigan’s Mackinaw and Ausable State Forests. Jack pine trees will be planted to improve the habitat of the endangered Kirtland’s warbler. Efforts by the Arbor Day Foundation’s replanting partners have increased the number of singing males from less than 200 to more than 1,900, bringing the species back from the brink of extinction.

I know you want to see MY tree, right?! :)



I promise this project is super easy–whether you create your own tree, share a Celebretree, or simply RT something with the #ShareATree hashtag… last I checked they’re only 40% of the way to their goal of 25,000 so we need YOU! Go share before the month of December is over.

Give the Gift of Music: SOL REPUBLIC Tracks Air giveaway

One of my favorite things in life is MUSIC. It can always pick me up and make me happy, I love to sing along (alone in the car, ha), and who couldn’t use a little dance party once in awhile?! Needless to say, I’m pretty picky about sound. I’ll thank my mom for that trait. My tech-y music toys have to sound amazing. That’s why I am obsessed with everything from SOL REPUBLIC.

Tracks Air

We’ve tried their wireless speakers and now their wireless headphones, the Tracks Air. AHHHHH-mazing. Seriously. They’re “on-ear” headphones, which I prefer because I like the sound better and they don’t hurt my little ears (they’re super comfy). And they’re stylish.

Tracks Air

And? Most importantly, they have awesome sound. These are wireless headphones so they connect to your music device via bluetooth and have a solid 15 hours of life before you need to recharge them.

More awesomeness? Tracks Air headphones can connect to TWO devices at once… that means you can wirelessly listen to a show on your tablet, but still answer an incoming call from your phone. You won’t miss a call and you don’t have to disconnect or remove the headphones. Easy. Can your wired headphones do that?

Tracks Air

You get 150 feet of wireless freedom with Tracks Air. I can move around my house without a problem. If I switch floors, it starts to cut out a little, but I also usually have my phone in my pocket streaming the music.

The speaker pads are Sonic Soft™ and they slide up and down to adjust any size. In my photo above they’re pushed up slightly to fit my head and you can see below how they even fit my almost 3yo daughter when pushed up farther. LOVE. Lots of uses for the entire family and the rich sound cannot be beat.

Tracks Air

Not sure? I can’t imagine why! But just in case… Tracks Air have a 100-day money back guarantee.* Go from 0 to 100% Wireless with nothing holding you back.

*The Guarantee applies only to Tracks Air wireless headphones purchased on or after October 15, 2014 directly from SOL REPUBLIC via the official Web Site at Tracks Air headphones must be returned within 100 days following purchase to be eligible for a refund. 

Tracks Air

Buy your Tracks Air at SOL REPUBLIC for $199.99 and free shipping. They come in Glacier White, Vivid Red, Gunmetal, and Electro Blue. They would make an AMAZING holiday gift. You can find them at select retailers, too, like Best Buy, Target, and RadioShack. Check for a store near you here.

Find the latest cameras and camcorders at Best Buy

Years ago I had an old camera that got the job done, but I’d been eyeing an upgrade to a DSLR for quite some time. I finally made the leap when my best friend was getting married. I really wanted to take some nice photos at the wedding! Plus, I was pregnant with our first and knew the new camera would be an investment in beautiful baby and family photos. I actually walked into Best Buy the morning of my friend’s wedding and said, “That one. The Nikon. I want it.” They said, “you

Mom Date Day Break: Coffee Cake Muffins & McCafe Coffee

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #McCafeMyWay #CollectiveBias

I spend my days cleaning up messes (lots of them. everywhere.), changing diapers, playing “go fish,” watching Daniel Tiger (meow meow) and Rescue Bots, and sometimes speaking to no one over the age of 4. Sometimes…. I feel like I’m losing my mind. Just a little lot. It took me far too long to realize that I need to also take care of MYSELF. I need to create

Play Osmo: the coolest new interactive iPad game

I’ll admit that both of my kids are iPad obsessed. One of Ryan’s favorite things to do is search the app store for awesome new games to play. He’s almost 5 and we do money counting games, math, sight words, puzzles, and some critical thinking games that are even hard for me. Yes, we play some Angry Birds, too Rebecca is almost 3 and likes anything Disney or watching Daniel Tiger, meow meow. While I do feel they’re learning on these games, sometimes I’d like to get them off the iPad and back to

Recycling Tips to Make it a Habit #TurnItGreen!

We’ve always been good about recycling as much as we can, limiting waste, and reusing when possible. I mean, we both have environmental related degrees (his in engineering, mine in the sciences) so what can you expect?! There are all kinds of tips and tricks out there to teach your kids about recycling, but I think learning by doing is the best way! Kids will grow up doing what they know. If recycling is always a part of our lives, it will be a part of theirs—because it’s just what you do. I partnered
