I’ve always been into the latest tech gear—I get that from my mom. When I was growing up, she always knew about the fun, new electronics and usually had to have the coolest gadgets. Now my brother even runs his own business setting up and installing home theaters, speakers, wall mounts, etc…. you bet my home better be up to their standards!

The newest, coolest tech?

New Action Cameras: GoPro at Best Buy!

I’m totally an adventure-seeker. I love a good adrenaline rush! Since having kids I haven’t had too many adventures (beyond raising two toddlers, haha), but the love for it will never leave me! I’ve gone skydiving in New Zealand, swam in the ocean with wild dolphins, snorkeled the great barrier reef, swam with stingrays, explored underground caves, climbed a waterfall, and I loooooove an amazing roller coaster ride.

With little kids, the adventures are certainly still there, maybe just not as wild and crazy (yet). Family vacations, water parks, sledding, horse riding, and

rocking to Raffi AND checking my emails

We’re music fanatics in this house. Even Ryan knows exactly how to work our iPods and iPhones to play specific songs or playlists. His favorite? Usually Raffi, but lately he’s been playing…. wait for it…. Gangnam Style. Yes, I’m serious. Mama is about to go buy some ear plugs.

And Ryan’s newest favorite tech toy? The Sound Step Recharge by Soundfreaq. Okay, I realize that bluetooth technology has been around for awhile, but I’ve never gotten into using

Reviewing the Motorola Droid Bionic #MotoCalyp

Steve and I got each other cell phones for Christmas 3 years ago. They’re old, outdated and starting to not function very well…. we need new ones! We’re having a hard time decided what exactly to get–an upgraded version of our current phone? or something entirely new? It’s so easy to stick to what you know and what you’re used to, but I decided to do some research on other phones to see if there’s something better out there!

I have friends that LOVE their Droids, so I did some research on the Read More…
