Power Up With The OtterBox Resurgence Case #OtterBoxResurgence

November 25, 2014
Relaxing with the OtterBox Resurgence Products & Gear

Tweet Thanks Otterbox for sending me a Resurgence case and Alpha Glass screen protector so I can share my thoughts with you. I do a lot of traveling for work. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten on a train to head to NYC for the day and within an hour my phone battery has gone down to 50%. It makes me CRAZY! By the time I’m ready to head back home after a day of meetings, my phone is nearly dead, which makes me nervous traveling by myself with no way to get a hold of anyone in case of an emergency. My daily to-do list is often a lot more than my phone can handle. I do everything on it from […]

Gift Idea for Kids: Cricket Magazine Subscription + Win

November 20, 2014
Cricket Magazine Create & Learn

Tweet I’m enjoying a subscription to Cricket Magazine as a Cricket Ambassador. I shared last month that I’m working with Cricket Magazine as one of their ambassadors and to kick of my partnership with them, I wrote a post with tips on getting your reluctant reader to actually read. It’s been a struggle for me to get my son to want to read without me nagging him, but I think we are finally on the right path. With lots of encouragement and finding subjects that interest him has really helped. This Christmas the tree will be filled with lots of books, activities, and art supplies something both of my boys enjoy doing. If you are looking for a gift idea to get your child or maybe […]

Creating Memories For My Children #PenguinsMovie

IMG_0031 Day Trips

Tweet One of my favorite memories growing up was the time my parents said to us one morning shortly after waking up, “Pack your bags, we are headed to Florida to visit Grandmom and Grandpop!” It was a spur of the moment trip and I can remember all five of us rushing around the house, throwing things into our bags as my Dad quickly packed the car. It was chaotic but once we were on the road it was so exciting. It’s a memory I will always hold close to my heart. I often think about which moments in life my boys will remember most and tell their children about. I want them to look back on their childhood and recall the fun adventures we […]
