One of my favorite stores to shop in is Best Buy!  Most recently, I discovered a part of Best Buy I had never seen before.  The Best Buy store we visited had a section with hands-on products we could play with by Intel.  It was pretty awesome! Did you know that while most (79%) of […]...

I love to listen to music!  Whether its 80’s music, wedding-inspired songs, Wilson Phillips, Paula Abdul, or Madonna, music helps me get through my work day.  I have the classic earphones that came with my iPhone, but those can start to make my ears ache after a while.  So what do I use when I […]...

I don’t know about your kids, but our kids love to play on their Samsung tablets, on the Playstation and on our iPhones.  I think the usage of technology is a lot higher now than it was when I was a kid, and that being the case, there is a higher need for our children to […]...
