Redecorating the Nursery With Winnie the Pooh

Once I knew we were adding a boy to our family, I pondered about redecorating the nursery. Both kids will be sharing its space at least for a little while. It didn’t feel right to just leave it as is – decorated for Rissa. I wanted to find something both kids would


Finding Nemo is Fin-tastic on Blu-ray

One of the most beautifully created Disney Pixar movies, in my opinion, is Finding Nemo. I thought it was gorgeous the first time I saw it, found it visually stunning when I screened it in 3D and still love it on bluray. Some movies I can’t really tell how bluray affects the

Get Your Rock On Anywhere With This Portable Bluetooth Speaker

It’s Hard to Eat Only One Cookie by Kukees

Oh the holidays, the perfect excuse to indulge in tasty treats.  Or at least, I use it as an excuse.  I’m a big cookie lover so I was pretty excited about receiving a dozen gourmet goodies from Kukees to taste test.  Despite having gestational diabetes, I can’t stay completely away from desserts.

Preserving Memories With Seagate Backup Plus

Quick & Easy Cooking With the T-Fal One Egg Wonder Pan & Grilled Cheese Griddle

I’ve been a long time fan of T-Fal cookware.  It’s really the only brand name cookware that I’ve owned.  Sure, I’ve bought some miscellaneous pots and pans here and there, but I couldn’t tell you what company made them.  While I’m no expert on cookware, my experience with T-Fal has been nice


E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial – A Classic That Makes Me Feel Old
