You remember it being a hit and they loved your card! Fast forward to today, while that card was one for the brag folder, it’s time to up the ante and really wow them.

holiday gifting made easyOne of my favorite parts of the holidays is shopping for my family and friends. There’s not only the challenge of picking
just the right item to give, but then the reward of seeing the big smile on their face. Now that we’re just over a month away from the biggest holidays, I really need to get my list made…and perhaps check it twice. Luckily
BestBuy.com has made gift giving easy this year.

The Best Birthday Present Ever!

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist ‎10-04-2016 03:41 PM - edited ‎10-14-2016 05:56 PM

One of the favorite things I like to do as a family activity is to bake. So, about a year ago, I decided to take a community class crash course to learn some techniques that I could apply to my home baking adventures. While it was a three-day course, I learned SO much! It has since then developed into a hobby of mine and my family doesn’t seem to complain.KitchenAid.jpg

Grad Gift Card

Let’s face it, we always picture our young ones graduating.

 

From the first day you held them in your arms, you already envisioned them tossing the tassel in the air and saw yourself jumping for joy that your baby was going to become someone in life.    

 

Did I just scare you? I hope not- well, maybe a little. Were you just transported to your own young adult self-journey!? Scary? I know! While I can’t promise that your young adult will have a smooth transition into adulthood, I do have some suggestions that will help them to aspire to be the best version of themselves that they can be.

Goodbye Sweet Prince!

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist ‎04-27-2016 05:16 PM - edited ‎04-27-2016 05:18 PM

“Don’t Worry. I won’t hurt you. I only want you to have some fun.”

~Prince

 

 Prince.jpg

I first became introduced to Prince and his music in 1979. Back then, fresh out of high school, I was a disco kid, frequenting the bars and drinking cheap 3.2 beer, occasionally getting my awkward teenage dance on. I danced like no one was watching -- to my eternal regret -- and one of the songs to which I shook my groove thing was “I Wanna Be Your Lover” by the artist who would become His Royal Badness the very next year.

It *is* easy being Green (sorry, Kermit) - Earth Day 2016

Little TreeA fiery sunrise ignites my wonder like no other.  It has a profound way of making me stop & fixate on how beautiful this planet really is & what a lucky little creature I am to be a part of this world.   Whether it’s the sky, the mountains, or the sea that makes you feeling connected to Mother Nature, I think most can agree that this Earth is worth taking care of.   The cool thing is that there has been some amazing advancements in technology that makes it basically effortless to make the eco-friendly choice while simultaneously making you feel you’re in the Tardis woobling towards the future (cue Dr. Who music!)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Boondock SaintsAnother St. Patrick’s Day is here, it’s time for people to head out and celebrate in a mass of alcohol-fueled shenanigans. If you are like me, however, wading into a crowd of inebriated fools to pay extra for green beer sounds pretty weary. For those taking the Paddy home this year, I have a list of some of my favorite Irish themed movies to celebrate more comfortably.

Leap Year.jpgWe take the calendar for granted. We all manage our lives hour by hour, day by day, week by week, but we seldom consider the truly strange thing that the measurement of time actually is. For example: do you know how Election Day is reckoned? How about knowing when Easter will occur, and why it will happen when it happens?

 

You know, the day isn’t even as long as you think it is; it’s shorter by four minutes. This adds up to a quarter day every year, or a whole day every four. More or less. Kind of. Maybe.

 

To reconcile this incongruity, every fourth year (except in certain centuries) is a Leap Year. Why a “leap” year? Well, because in common years, the advancement of the calendar puts fixed-date holidays on subsequent weekdays each year, i.e., Christmas is on Tuesday, then Wednesday the next year, then Thursday, etc. In leap years, Christmas would “leap” over Thursday to Friday.
