Moto Z Force Droid – AKA The Battery That Lasts Forever

When it comes to cell phones, I get giddy every time I get my hands on a new one, especially when it’s something I’ve had my eye on like the Moto Z Force Droid. And to be honest, it wasn’t the phone that first caught my eye. It was a movie playing on the wall behind the Verizon table at MN Blogger Conference. That’s what got me interested, so I wandered over to see why they were playing a movie {Read More}

Oh Nair, why did I think you would change?

Remember those Nair commercials from the 80’s? I wasn’t old enough to worry about leg hair in the 80’s, but I remember the commercials. The ones they had in the 90’s weren’t much better, but they worked. Like most teens, I was self-conscious about my looks, especially my body hair. My whole life I’ve dealt with the stages of mediterranean body hair grief: Denial: All my friends have fine, light hair. They don’t wax their arms. I’m not going to. That would {Read More}

How Young Is Too Young for a Cell Phone? #VZWBuzz

How young is too young for a cell phone? If you had asked me this question a couple months ago, I would have said Levi is DEFINITELY too young to have his own cell phone. He’s not quite 5 – who needs a cell phone when they’re not even in Kindergarten yet? Not my kid, that’s for sure. But oh how things change. As part of the Verizon team of lifestyle influences, I was able to learn all about one {Read More}

Father’s Day Gift Idea: DROID Turbo Sapphire Blue by Motorola

Father’s Day is coming up, and I admit, I get my dad the same exact gift every year. In fact, I get him the same gift for every single holiday and gifting occasion – gummy worms, Jelly Belly jelly beans, and Mike n’ Ikes. It’s what he likes and and I like knowing he’ll enjoy my gift. Mykl, on the other hand, isn’t quite as easy to shop for. Don’t get me wrong – he would love anything I helped {Read More}

Set a Santa Command on the Droid Turbo #DroidHolidays #VZWBuzz

One of my favorite features of the Droid Turbo is the ability to set a custom voice prompt using Moto Voice. Since Christmas is less than 2 days away and Levi is finally old enough to “get” the whole Santa thing, I thought it would be fun to set up a fun Santa surprise for the next time he tries to grab my phone without asking.

Homework help from Verizon Educational Tools #VZEducation #VZWbuzz

The girls are already a little over a week into the school year, so that means homework is part of our routine when they get to visit home for the weekend. Mykl & I are pretty smart, but with Lucy in 4th grade and Tillie in 6th grade this year, we’ve had to admit that sometimes their homework is smarter than we are. Luckily for us, Verizon Educational Tools is making it easier for us to help them learn.

How Verizon helped me recognize a 12 year milestone #VZWBuzz

Let me start by saying I haven’t really decided if this is a good post or a bad post.

I’m part of the #VZWBuzz Lifestyle Blogger team, which means I’ve received a line of service from them, as well as some cool devices & accessories. It also means I get kept in the {Read More}

Bonding over technology: Teaching dad how the tablet works #VZWVoices #Mom

I’m currently participating in the Verizon Moms Voices blogging program. I received a complimentary device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions. Jason (Levi’s dad) was over the other day and Levi taught him how to use apps on my tablet. It might have been one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. Part of the reason it was so adorable is because Levi totally has this tablet thing figured out. I have all of his {Read More}
