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.

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

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

When I was a kid, my brother and I always got to open one present on Christmas Eve. It was usually a new pair of holiday pajamas! Now that my husband and I have two kids of our own, we continue the tradition! Except for one major problem… our Christmas Eve is SO busy!
