Sell your old phone on eBay

Sell Your Old Phone On eBay!

This blog post was written as part of my collaboration with eBay. I’m especially excited about this partnership because it’s a service we use often in our home.  We have a great love of technology in our home. We actually have an additional line on our cell phone account that we pay for (just $10/month) so we can upgrade our iPhones more often. Upgrading often means that we would always have an “old” phone lying around, but about 2 years ago…

Creamy Coconut Oil Coffee Recipe

Sweet And Creamy Coconut Oil Coffee Recipe

My morning coffee is sometimes the only thing that gets me out of bed. Even living in the desert doesn’t take away how great it is to wake up to a hot cup of coffee. I’ve recently started adding coconut oil to my coffee and I love it. In addition to the health benefits, it makes it a little easier for people with sensitive stomachs to drink coffee because it makes the coffee feel a little less acidic. My husband…

Count On FedEx For Countless Possibilities Through Education

This post is sponsored by FedEx. All content is my own.   I remember almost everything that my high school history teacher taught me–and almost none of it was about history. She taught us about taking care of ourselves, about being kind to one another, and the importance and privilege of education. It was in part because of her that I explored several career options before settling on getting my degrees in speech therapy. After spending six years going to college,…

This came to mind: Image credit Kidding! Kinda. We have also talked about getting Clocky, the rolling alarm clock. Jack will only get out of bed if there are fresh waffles waiting for him in the kitchen. I totally understand that. What…

Samsung Tab 3 10.1 Android Tablet Review

My Supertool: The Samsung Tab 3 Android Tablet #IntelTablets

I recently went to Best Buy and checked out their tablet selection. My laptop is getting a little old and slow, and I’d love to have something lightweight to take on road trips with me. The boys in blue (shirts) showed me around and pointed me towards one tablet in particular: the Samsung Tab 3 Android tablet, which runs off of a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Z2560 running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. What the heck does that mean? I asked my Best…
