Create the Ultimate Home Theater!

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

In my house, we like to entertain. Our house has always been kind of the gathering place for all of my family, and our friends. It’s become even more so these days, since this health stuff now keeps me at home more than I’d like. During the summer we’re all about outdoor fun – we have a big 4-bay shop where the guys like to tinker around, a giant fruit and veggie garden the kids love to help pick produce from, a big field with a great playhouse and fort, and the best part – a big inground pool that gets a ton of use! During the fall and into winter, it gets pretty darn cold here in the PNW, so we bring the party indoors… But that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop, no way buddy. And I’ve recently found an awesome new gadget that is on my wish list {are you reading this Santa?} – I can think of SO many ways to use this bad boy. Check it out – the Epson Ultra bright home theater projector, available at one of my fave retailers, Best Buy.

How to Rock Your Holiday Music This Year

I’ve been compensated with a complimentary set of wireless speakers from Best Buy to evaluate, and share my experience with you guys. All opinions are my own, as always.

I love music. Like, almost any type of music. I like oldies – everything from motown to rock. I like Salt N Pepa, Norah Jones, Nickleback, Sublime. I like country. I like Taylor Swift. I have a majorly eclectic taste in tunes. And – since I entertain so much, I need to always have a way to play songs that fit the event, the crowd, and the mood. Which means ditching my old school CD player and CDs that I collected for years….

CD's from the 90's

You know how hard it was to toss my awesome collection of 90s rap CDs? Seriously? It was like, throwing out a high school yearbook or class ring or something. Totally hard. But – who listens to CDs anymore, right? These days, it’s all about my Pandora radio stations, where I can customize my music selections to be exactly what I’m in the mood for. And, it means a need for awesome wireless speakers that can play music in every room of my house.

Great Family Holiday Gift from Best Buy – LG OLED TV

This reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions about the awesomeness of the LG OLED TV are my own!

Discover LG OLED TV – The Ultimate Display! Other than the kitchen, the TV, no matter where it is, is the place that families seem to gather around the most. Whether it’s catching up on a favorite TV series, having family movie nights, inviting friends over for big events like the Superbowl – a great TV has become a must-have. And, there’s now so much cool new technology – things like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon movies, etc – that you’ve just got to have a TV that can keep up. And I have an awesome option here for ya…

What is OLED TV?

Even though my whole life revolves around technology – work and my social life – I am always the first to admit that I’m not an expert. So, I will let you check out the details about this TV on the Best Buy website: LG OLED TV. That will give you all of the super duper technical stuff. Plus, a cool thing about shopping on BestBuy.com is that you can read tons of reviews of every product you’re interested in. Which is awesome. But, here are a few things that I am totally excited about, that I think you’ll love too:

  • It’s super thin. Which honestly, I wouldn’t care about from a tech standpoint, but I do love when thinking about design. It’s so much easier to move furniture around, redecorate, etc, when you have a thinner, less obtrusive TV. It’s only 0.21″ thick at it’s thinnest point – crazy, right?
  • It’s got some pretty stinkin’ awesome picture quality. It’s Infinite Contrast means it  most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. And, LG’s exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors. Which means it delivers a really natural and lifelike view on your screen.
  • It’s got speech recognition. Like, you can change the channel, open an app, or control things like your Blu-ray or home theater system. Crazy. #AwesomeLikeWoah . I know.
  • It’s got a curved screen, to make sure everyone, no matter where they’re sitting, gets an awesome experience as they view TV shows and movies on this screen.

Sounds pretty darn cool, right?

Why I love the Nintendo 2DS and the Tomodachi Life Game from Best Buy

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

You guys know I am always conflicted on giving the kids more tech gadgets, right? I’m a BIG believer in kids doing old school stuff like running and climbing and playing outside. My Mister’s oldest daughter told my nephews one day – {they’re 8 & 10} – about how she used to play. That she didn’t have all these gadgets and tablets and phones… She had geese. And 10 acres. And that was it. How times have changed. Lol. And I love non-tech type toys, especially for my little nephew who has a few sensory disorders. But at the same time, I do love the way that technology can seriously help kids learn, grow, and expand their minds. It’s amazing!

Do You Know How to Earn Free Money Using Your Phone?

This is a sponsored giveaway with Mums the Word Network and Jingit. All opinions are my own, as always. I only share stuff I seriously love. 

Who loves free money? {Is everyone waving their hands in the air right now? I thought so :)} I know that I love finding cool new ways to earn extra free money from stuff I do anyway, or ways to earn money working from home. Sites like Ebates, MyPoints, and InBox Dollars give me awesome ways to earn money from what I do online – things like reading emails, surfing the web, or shopping. Because of those, sometimes I’ve wanted to avoid actually shopping in stores, because I’d be missing my awesome rewards and free cash back. But, I’ve recently fallen in love with an app that helps you earn free cash when you shop at your local stores too. So cool. Check it out….
