Why ponies in sweaters? WHY NOT! How adorable are they! Shetland ponies and the Shetland sweaters they are wearing are the 2 more [...]

Money Doesn’t Grow on Trees and Other Things Your Toddler Needs to Know About Money

By |January 18th, 2013|Parenting, Toddler Talk|

How many times have you uttered the words.... Money doesn't grow on trees?  I know I am guilty of saying that, oh at least 5 times each grocery store trip - and who knows how many when we are at the mall or Target. Kids just don't get it... but then again, I guess it's [...]

By |November 8th, 2012|Technology & Web|

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the Samsung ES8000 Smart TV is SO much more than a television. Since receiving our’s 2 months ago, we have spent more time using the “smart” than the TV! Samsung is taking family and has created an easy to way to connect sharing photos and memos using your television.

Digital Mom Printer Review – HP 3052A

By |October 16th, 2012|Technology & Web|

HP 3052a Inkjet All-in-One Printer vs Color Laser Printer We were recently sent a HP 3052a printer to review.  My first thoughts, ink jet? hrm.. See, for the last few years, I have loved my color laser printer. The printer is quick and the colors are fabulous, but OMG when you need a new laser cartridge, be prepared to empty your savings to buy new ones! But alas, blogging and providing you reviews of technology is my job, so yes Hewlett Packard I will be happy to review your inkjet. Print From Your iPhone and More! The HP 3052a printer offers not only an inkjet printer, but a scanner and copier as well. The scanner works fabulous and the copier works great (I just realized I haven’t copied my hand yet! I must get on that!). These are great features that minimizes space and increases usability of the product… but you know what rocks about this Hewlett Packard printer? It’s wireless and you can print from your iPhone, iPad, Android as well! I did a short video to give you an overview of what the HP 3052a printer does, as well as a demo of how the printer prints from the iPhone.  […]

Bad Luck Be Gone

By |October 9th, 2012|Parenting|

I’ve recently taken up playing the Lotto. After watching some show on TLC about lottery winners, I have my mind set on the fact that I TOO could win, if I just played. Also, that if I won – I could do so much good with that money (you hear that God?). Well, I haven’t won. I am not giving up, it’s just a string of bad luck that has hit our family lately – but as soon as this cloud of darkness lifts, I know I’ll be in jackpot gold baby! Yes, sometimes I am delusional.  A few weeks ago we found out that my husband needed tear duct surgery. Then Izaiah knocked his teeth into his jaw. Then Sean had his surgery and his recovery took longer than we had planned. We then had to move which has been a series of comical events. Actually they have all been tear-worthy events that we have tried our best to make comical. Then my Mag Safe died on my MacBook pro leaving me without my typical computer to work on and unable to finish a few jobs on time. All of that sucks. Bad luck? Sure or a string of unfortunate events. But the worse happened last night. We went to see the dogs after being away for 24 hours and my beloved dog was sick. Too sick and after 14 years, we had to say goodbye to our first furry child.  […]
