Laundry.  It never ends.  Surely you’ve seen the memes floating around the internet that joke about the 12 seconds when all of the laundry is actually done – and it’s completely true. There is always something that needs to be washed. I have found that the older my kids get, the more laundry they create (sports uniforms, multiple showers on game days, etc) and sometimes I feel like I just can’t keep up with it all. There are times when I think to myself that it would be so nice if I could do two loads at once! Well guess what? The ability to wash two loads at once is now a reality with the LG TwinWash System at Best Buy. Brilliant!

With LG’s TwinWash system you get the best of both worlds. For small loads that can’t wait (think things like your yoga pants after your hot yoga class, the red shirt in a pile of whites, the dirty school uniform on a Sunday night) there is the LG SideKick pedestal washer. You can even use it simultaneously while you do a bigger load up top on your LG Front load washer. This might just be the greatest invention since the wheel for us busy moms!

Not only do these washers have mega capacity to tackle any size load, they are energy efficient while giving you the best cleaning performance. No wonder more households have chosen LG laundry over any other brand!

From 1/11-4/25 receive up to $500 off a LG laundry solution for your home at Best Buy!  Now that’s a great deal!

So tell me, wouldn’t you just love to try LG’s TwinWash System? I know I would.

My stepson is heading off to college in just a few short weeks.  Since this is his first time away from home, I want to make sure that we send him off prepared for life on his own.  I have been spending the summer picking up things to make him a big care package so that he will have everything he needs.  In addition to a whole slew of personal care type products that I am including in the care package, I am sending him off with some SanDisk products, too.  I want to make sure he has everything he needs to do well in school as well as taking care of himself,too.

Father’s Day is this Sunday!  I feel like it really snuck up on me this year.  We’ve had so many events in our family lately that Father’s Day almost slipped past me.  Luckily I remember about it (thanks to writing this post), but I find myself in a pickle.  I only have a few days left to get my husband, Chris, an awesome gift from the boys.

Chris is really a simple guy.  It doesn’t take much to make him happy, but he’s the most amazing husband to me and step-father to my boys that I really do want to get him something awesome for his special day.

Solo, the Smart Drone, fits the bill perfectly.

I got my first camera when I was in 6th grade.  Somehow I lucked out in school that year and ended up with a teacher who loved taking the class on field trips.  We went on approximately 15 of them that year (yes, 15) and after the 3rd or 4th field trip, I started begging my mom incesantly asking for a camera so that I could be like all my friends and take pictures. That year for Christmas, I got a Kodak Disc Camera (I totally just dated myself, right?) and thought it was the coolest thing ever. I took my Kodak Disc on all the rest of my field trips that year and ended up with hundreds of pictures of my friends and the places I went.  And thus began my love of photography.

Since then, I have upgraded my camera quite a few times, and I like to think that my photography skills have come a long way since I was that 11 year old girl running around in the 80’s with my Kodak Disc.  Lately I have been thinking about another upgrade and there are a few cameras that I have my eye on.

Best Buy is the ultimate destination for the latest cameras and camcorders to capture your high-stakes memories. These three cameras from Nikon, Sony and Samsung, all come equipped with built-in Wi-Fi so you can share amazing photos with ease. Upgrade your camera in time to capture precious holiday memories.

Do you have someone who’s really hard to buy for at the holidays?  I have a couple of those people to be honest.  One of them happens to be my 10 year old son.  He’s at an odd age where he doesn’t really want toys anymore and he’s just now starting to get into electronics.  We have a gaming system already, but it’s old and I have been giving serious thought into getting him the Xbox One this year for Christmas.  He could also use a new pair of headphones, so I definitely have to get over to Best Buy to finish up my shopping for him.  When it comes to great gift ideas, Best Buy is the place to shop! They have everything I’m looking for all in one place.  You know, things such as the Xbox One, JBL speakers and headphones, Garmin and TomTom!

Check out some of the things I’m thinking about getting when I go to Best Buy this weekend:

Xbox One:

Xbox One was built by gamers, for gamers. With the best exclusive titles (Halo, Sunset Overdrive), the biggest blockbusters (Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty) the hottest sports franchises (Madden 15, FIFA 15, NBA 2K15) and top family titles (Fantasia: Music Evolved, Just Dance 15, Skylanders) Xbox One takes gaming to a whole new level.

In addition to being a great gaming console, Xbox one connects consumers unlike any other device.  Xbox One enables access to the latest TV shows and movies through your favorite apps.  With Xbox One all of your media is at your fingertips when you want it. Continue reading »

I am definitely not a professional by any means, but I love taking photos.  I would say that the vast majority of the photos I take are of my kids and family, but I love documenting my travels and every day life as well. Most people who know me in real life will tell you that whenever they see me, my camera is almost always attached to me.  That is why a great camera is so important to me.  I have this great little Canon point and shoot camera that has served me very well over the years, but I have been eyeballing the Canon EOS Rebel T5i lately and I am hoping that Santa sees this and that I find one under my tree on Christmas morning.

Without giving you a major lesson in cameras, DLSR cameras are generally faster and produce sharper photos than compact (point and shoot) cameras. The DSLR acronym means that the camera uses a Digital sensor with Single Lens Reflex technology to create the image. They have interchangeable lenses, which means they are can capture great photos in any situation. DLSRs are professional cameras, so they are larger and a bit more bulky than point & shoot cameras, but totally worth it if you want to capture high-res, amazing photos!

Imagine a world where you can everything beautifully on the screen right in front of you. Perhaps, you can imagine a world where you can’t even distinguish television from real life, or a television that gives you an even better display than real life.

My husband and I have recently come across a television that is unlike any other and we both agree that it would be fabulous to own in real life. I mean we have a hard core television crush on the LG OLED TV, available at Best Buy.

As a child, I remember watching television and thinking it was cool to be able to see my favorite shows. My boys have it made here in 2014! They can watch a television that changes the way they can view the world. Let me tell you why this TV is specifically so amazing!

  • Infinite contrast ratio and stunning color – delivers more natural, lifelike viewing.
  • 4 Color Pixel technology enhances color range and accuracy.
  • Super thin design
  • Find content faster with webOS

Living in New England, I am right in the middle of prime ski country.  Although it’s been a few years since I’ve hit the slopes myself, I always seem to find myself thinking one thing as I ski or snowboard my way down a mountain: Wouldn’t it be cool if I could take a video of this?

Well, with GoPro cameras, you can do just that.  You can take amazing action shots and even mount them to your helmet so you can take photos or videos of your adventure!

I think we all know by now that when it comes to the latest cameras and camcorders, Best Buy has you covered.
