Living in North Carolina presents plenty of road-tripping opportunities. Between the beaches and the mountains, there's plenty to see, and we often try. During the summer months, we typically spend at least one weekend a month on the road. Still, no matter how many road trips we take, road-tripping with a kid, is considerably more difficult, than road tripping with adults. Which is why before we leave, I take extra measures to ensure that our road-trip doesn't deprive me of my sanity.
You know that feeling of annoyance you get when it's too warm and your A/C just isn't doing the trick, but you know your fan will get the job done. Only your fan is on the other side of the room, and you're in a comfy position on your couch? Turns out, there's a fix for that-- The WeMo Mini Smart Plug by Belkin.
This tiny little plug packs a powerful punch. With one flick of the button, or a simple voice command, you can control electronic devices throughout your home, even if you're on the other side of the world.
8 is the number of times my daughter has watched Moana since our movie viewing party last weekend. Not that I'm upset, because Moana is so good we can literally watch it over and over again, and love it every single time.
If you keep up with me on Twitter, you know that last week we celebrated the upcoming release of Disney's Moana with a few pint-sized friends and tons of goodies. Since Mr. A was out of town, it was truly a ladies night, complete with some serious yummies, and a movie that introduces a new kind of Disney Princess. As the mother of a strong-willed daughter, I LOVE the tone that this Moana sets, which is why it was literally the perfect choice for a ladies night in. My family has a rich history of strong, independent women, so watching this movie with my daughter, was especially important.
I want to start this post with a huge THANK YOU to all of my readers who tweeted and messaged me about their experiences having their wisdom teeth removed! Your advice has helped to make this experience a bit more bearable. So Thank You, Thank You, Thank you! (P.S. my giveaway is sponsored by Memo Box, however, all thoughts, opinions and pictures are mine unless otherwise stated.)
I'm not a fan of the dentist. Any dentist, really. And by not a fan, I mean incredibly terrified. I know, call me weak. But there's something about having a person operating a power drill in my mouth that conjures up enough"what-if"scenarios to keep me awake at night for all of eternity.
I credit my phobia to that one time my dentist told me it wouldn't hurt. He lied. It hurt. A lot. I was 5 at the time, but that memory is still fresh in my mind. So you can imagine that I wasn't overjoyed when my dentist told me that I would need to have all four of my wisdom teeth removed.
Question of the Day: How do you make a dumb home smart?
Answer: By installing Philips Hue White Ambiance Lights
By now we all know that lighting has the ability to affect our wallet, moods, productivity and sometimes, even our sleeping patterns. In a sense, investing in smart lighting is not only economical, but it can make your life easier in a number of different ways.
A month ago, I had the opportunity to try out some smart lights for the first time. And now, I'm pretty much addicted. With more than 50,000 shades of white, Philips Hue White Ambiance lights can match your personal preference. However, if you'd prefer something a bit less custom, the Philips Hue App and the Philips Hue wireless dimmer switch come loaded with 4 preset options to choose from.
A/N: I was given tickets to the UniverSoul Circus performance, however, all thoughts and opinions are mine.
