Datebox is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift!

Thank you to Datebox for sponsoring the post.

One of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2017 was to spend more quality time with my husband, Michael. It has often been said he is more the wife and I’m more the husband when it comes to typical relationship structure. He’s more cuddly than I am, gives better gifts, writes sweeter notes and in general is just better at being romantic than I am.  He deserves better. I can do better.

When I recently learned about Datebox, I thought to myself, “Okay this is honestly genius.” Now that Michael and I have received our first Datebox I am convinced of it.

Datebox makes date night simple for couples, because they believe relationships matter.  They are subscription company, each month they create a date night for couples and send them everything they need for their fun, creative, date night together.  The goal is to help couples rediscover date night and consistent quality time together.

Since Michael & I have three young kiddos, scheduling a date night can be a struggle. Time together is limited, it’s expensive to go out and pay the sitter. We often enjoy staying in and relaxing in our Pajamas when we have a break from the hectic work week.

Datebox makes date night simple and fun. We had a blast and I liked how much instruction came with the box. I didn’t need a single thing outside of the box to make the date happen. It even included a curated playlist, how cool is that?!

Here are some photos from our first Datebox adventure. Our Datebox theme was “Cake Pops & Canvas Painting” – so fun. I can’t wait until next month!

My Office & Desk Necessities!

Thank you to HP for sponsoring this post.

Lookie Boo office House that ETSY built

My original office featured in “The House That Etsy Built” project.

Ahhh, memories. This is my original office I set up when we first moved into our house about 3.5 years ago.  A lot has changed since then – including another baby! Pictured here is my first HP Notebook that I used for going on 4 years until my new love came into my life.

HP 17' Laptop Lookie Boo

Isn’t she lovely?! I haven’t named her yet, but she’s pretty awesome. Meet my fresh HP 17” White Notebook — my new BFF.  I opted for white because it matches all of my outfits, but this Notebook is also available in blue, white, red teal and silver.

In addition to finding the perfect laptop for my lifestyle & business, I have discovered my absolute necessities for my work space. These things help set me up for success and put me in the right zone.

{2} Apple Round Fitness Ball in pink // When my back starts to get sore from longer periods of sitting,  I stretch and switch to sitting on this 26″ fitness ball.

{3} Wireless Optical Mouse // Helps work longer without discomfort in my hand and wrist.  Also helps avoid things like arthritis and carpel tunnel later in life.

{4} HP 17.3″ HD LED Intel Quad-Core, 8GB RAM 2TB HDD Windows 10 Laptop with Software, Services and Lifetime Support If you might have noticed, photos are everything to me. I’m the crazy lady taking pictures of my kids every hour. Which thankfully lead me to this blog and many awesome opportunities. However, this requires a lot of storage and most Notebooks in my past just didn’t have enough room for all my crazy. My new BFF here offers 2 TB of storage allowing me to quickly move between multiple apps  AND letting me easily store all of my media in one place.

I’ve been promoting the awesome sale HSN is having of the HP Notebooks the past week  on social media and the awesome spot they had this past Sunday (7/24) featuring The Girls With Glasses! They are just so cute, I really need to step my glasses game up. I love the Behind the Scenes at HSN Facebook live video they did. Facebook Live is so rad, it makes me feel like I can be everywhere at once.

Bottom line, this HP Notebook is a standout in the tech space, touting the largest hard drive HSN has ever offered, CD/DVD drive and Windows 10! Engineered by the great minds at HP, you can count on this Notebook for it’s thin, portable body and powerful Intel Pentium Core processor.

{6} Wrist Supporting Mouse Pad // Like the optical mouse, it helps work longer without discomfort in my hand and wrist.  Also helps avoid things like arthritis and carpel tunnel later in life.

What are your desk necessities for success?

Until Next time!

I’m in love with a fridge.

Last month when I was attending the Mom 2.0 Summit conference n beautiful Laguna Nigel, I was delighted to see that Best Buy was back as a sponsor. Mostly because I really enjoy checking out the latest Samsung appliances and drooling over stuff I’ll probably never have in my own kitchen. A girl can dream. As soon as I walked in I found the coolest fridge I’ve ever seen in my life , the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator with touchscreen. 

I texted my husband right away and he was like, “Never gonna happen dude.” and I said, “But but but it has a freaking camera inside that you can pull up from your phone while at the grocery store and if you really loved me you’d probably buy me this fridge….”

Anyway, the point is I’m really obsessed with this fridge. Here is some more information from Best By directly to explain why its the coolest ever.

EASY FOOD MANAGEMENT

This refrigerator features three built-in cameras take a picture of the inside of your fridge every time the door closes. You can then access those images anytime using your smartphone. More efficiently manage your groceries with Groceries by Mastercard, identify foods you have or need, track product expiration dates. You can even use the refrigerator to do online grocery shopping plus manage recipes and compile and share shopping lists.

FAMILY FRIENDLY

Your family can share their calendars, photos, and notes directly on the Family Hub, or from their mobile devices. All communications are housed and displayed on a 21.5″ Full HD LCD resolution screen on the exterior door. The screen allows you to post, share and update calendars, pin photos, share your child’s treasured works of art, and leave notes — all with the convenience of your smartphone.

FULL ENTERTAINMENT CENTER

Stream your favorite music from Pandora and TuneIn Radio apps that play through the refrigerator’s built-in speaker or connect to your Bluetooth wireless speakers. You can even enjoy your favorite TV shows using screen mirroring with select Samsung Smart TVs.

So ya, tell me you don’t want this fridge. I’m going to keep dreaming about this thing.

If you’re a visual learner like I am.

Awesome, right?! I recently started working on Ozzy’s “nursery nook” in our master bedroom (um, California is expensive and our house is small) and the search for the perfect wall print has begun.

Black/white/grey/pops of blue, you get the idea. After HOURS of meticulous obsession, I was able to design four that I really love. Minted allows you to completely personalize and preview as you shop, which is freaking cool if you’re as type A as I am about this kind of thing. Without further adieu (or rambling), here are my top four favorites…Help me pick??
