My husband is a graphic designer and an artist. He is often taking pictures for his latest graphic design project of whatever new work of art that he is working on–how else could he properly advertise himself. Not to mention the millions upon millions of pictures that both my husband and I seem to take of our kids’ every move–often it seems that we are so busy recording our children that we forget to come out from behind the camera.
For quality pictures, a phone doesn’t always cut it–sometimes, you just need a really good camera. A decent camera is a big purchase, so we’ve been doing some research on the best models to buy.
We’re a pretty low tech family, so I held out for a loooong time before giving in to buying a gaming console for our household. Finally, after tons of research about safe gaming for kids and available games, I settled on a Nintendo WiiU and we’ve been enjoying it ever since.
GameStop’s trade-in policies and the huge bins of pre-owned games have been really useful in helping us build up our game collection–I love being able to sell back games that aren’t a hit (you never really know until you take them home!)
As Hanukkah is halfway over and Christmas is just a few short days away, it’s good to know how many last minute deals GameStop has for all of us procrastinators.
It’s Chanukah, which means it’s time to fry everything! 🙂 Check out my recipe for Spinach-Feta Latkes (I added mushrooms this year)
Welcome to our week-long, bobble SPORT reusable water bottle giveaway, that we are co-hosting with a wonderful group of bloggers from across the United States.
Experts tell us that to be fully hydrated, we’re supposed to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day (something which I am admittedly terrible at!)
The easiest way to make sure that you spend all day drinking is to always have a bottle in your bag and reusable water bottles are clearly a much more environmentally-friendly way to go than constantly grabbing a bottle of water out of your supermarket’s refrigerator case.
Did you know that Americans used about 50 billion plastic water bottles last year which, with a U.S. recycling rate for plastic of only 23 percent, means 38 billion water bottles are wasted each year3. ? (from Ban The Bottle )
