4 Reasons You Need Google Chromecast Audio | #Chromecast #Tech

Music is really important in my family. We all connect to it in one way or another and constantly have it playing throughout the house. Of course, we have issues with our bluetooth speakers cutting in and out, and trying to get it to play in multiple rooms – but not anymore thanks to Google Chromecast Audio! Now we can play music, seamlessly, throughout the house. We can play it from our phones, tablets, or computers – meaning no more drained cellphone batteries! We love Google Chromecast Audio, and we think you will too! Here are 4 reasons why you need it in your life!

All 6 Amercian Horror Story Seasons Ranked From My Favorite to Least Favorite and Why | #AmericanHorrorStory #AHS

I just recently watched all 6 seasons of American Horror Story. I have been told many times it was something I needed to do – and I was always interested in watching them, I just never got around to it. Well, I decided it was finally time and binged watched them all the way through. I decided to rank them in order of my favorite – however, I highly recommend watching them in order. Even though they are totally different stories, they do link together and give other seasons nods here and there. Many of the actors appear in more than one season (in fact, most of the main cast are in all of the seasons) but they play totally different characters. I find this really interesting and it is part of the reason I just love this show. It proves that these actors are incredibly talented because they can play different roles with such ease.

DIY Disney Cruise Door Decorations + My Favorites I Found on Etsy | #DisneyCruise #DIY

I took my daughters on a Disney Cruise last August. We loved it so much that we immediately booked (while still on board) another Disney Cruise. We leave next week and I am so excited about it! One thing we did not do for our last cruise but decided we could not miss out on it this time is door decorations. My 5 year old loved walking around the ship and pointing out the different door decorations that we found. She enjoyed reading all of the names on them and looking at pictures that were put up. There are tons of options on Etsy and Amazon, but my girls love being crafty (even though their mama really isn’t). So we went ahead and decided to make our door decorations this time.

Why Boise POLARIS Premium Paper Makes All The Difference in Your Home Office | #Giveaway

Between me working from home and my daughter’s school projects, we use a lot of printer paper. My youngest daughter is only 4 and not in school yet and we work on her letters, math, and writing at home. To help me do this, I print a lot of materials. Not to mention all the coloring pages that my girls insist of printing out (on a daily basis!). I have learned the hard way that choosing the right printer paper for the task at hand is very important. If you choose the wrong paper you can end up with ink bleeding through to the other side (or your desk or table), jammed paper, smudged paper, and even ripped paper. That is why I have teamed up with Boise POLARIS Premium Paper to help you discover the right paper for the job.

Principal Photography on the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story Has Begun! | #StarWars #HanSolo

If you know anything about me, you know I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. I am also a huge Han Solo fan (I mean, how can you not be). When the Han Solos solo film (see what I did there) was announced, I was thrilled. I can not wait to delve deeper into one of my favorite characters in the Star Wars universe! I just found out that principal photography has begun on this film and it is becoming more real to me now! The actors involved are amazing – Donald Glover anyone? I LOVE him! He is going to be the perfect Lando! I am thrilled that I only have to wait until May 2018 to see this movie – I am so used to Star Wars movies coming out in December. Buckle up guys – this is going to be an amazing ride!
