Back to Reality

It's been quite some time since I last updated, and I feel terribly about it.  As always, life gets in the way.  Sadly, my husband's best friend was killed in a car accident in the middle of December, so we had a really rough time with that, and I know that Billy still struggles with it.  We miss him and think of him so much!

Then I was a wonderful recipient of the stomach bug that was going around, combined with the holiday madness, and so - it's back to reality!

With that said, I've enjoyed some of my sick days reading the Divergent Trilogy Series, and have recently started watching Downton Abbey because I really was not good for very much else.  I'm thankful for my kindle account, so I can read on my Kindle Fire when I have that on hand, if not - it's great to read on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Go-To Guru Gift Guide - FOR TECHY KIDS

Obviously I love technology, I don't try to hide that addiction.  I feel like as a society, we are drawn to technology more so then when I was younger, and because of that I have seen my (almost) 3 year old niece obsessed with watching firetrucks on the iPad, or better yet - learning to spell and read with some pretty amazing apps on the iPad.  So while we may gripe and complain that we are such a tech driven generation, it can be for the good.

But let's not forget that kids need a place to get their creative groove on. So why not combine the two??  For that reason alone, I'm in love with this Crayola DigiTools Deluxe Pack.  It's absolutely perfect for kids that are tech driven, and will help them to take some time out to just be creative. 

I love this and think it's absolutely a perfect addition to add to my Gift Guide as it would actually be good for kids of all ages (I mean, I know I'm a big kid at heart) You can purchase it now at Verizon Wireless
