We love +Tiggly ! Have you tried these fun learning apps with your kids?
Tiggly Words is another home-run in the Tiggly app family. Kids love the easy to hold vowels and enjoy learning with fun coordinating iPad games.

Still loving my Misfit shine a year later. Just got some new bands for summer. #ConnectedLife
I’ve never been much for fitness gadgets. I had a pedometer once when I worked for an insurance company. I always forgot to wear it though and it seemed wildly inaccurate so it didn’t take long for me to ditch it. These days however, activity trackers seem much more sophisticated. I love mapping and timing… [read more]

Why you need to tap into your silly side for inspiration.
In 1987, I was 9-years old. My sisters were just finishing high school and I had access to the best of the best of 80s culture, from movies to music to impossibly big hair. I don’t think I am alone in my love for the 80s even if I wasn’t exactly the typical angsty teen… [read more]

Writing for the sake of writing. Who knew?
Master Yoda once said…… It’s a quote I think of often in my results-driven life. Sometimes it pushes me to do better and other times I feel defeated by my supposed lack of “do”. Everything I’ve always done has had a purpose. When I was younger I studied to get good grades. Then I got… [read more]

Amen :)
I am learning more about the love of Jesus from my 6-year old than I have in the past (almost) 37 years of life on this earth. During his bedtime prayers lately, he has been praying that Satan will change his mind again and follow Jesus. You guys. My 6-year old is praying for Satan’s… [read more]

Do you know how to fail?
Both of our boys recently had dentist appointments. They did really well and walked out with clean teeth and the all-clear for cavities (none yet). They chose a prize and were given a bag of goodies including a new toothbrush, some toothpaste, and a couple stickers. That bag sat on our kitchen counter for several… [read more]

A little fun if you're scrolling through Instagram today.
If you follow me on Instagram, you might notice that I am a little bit obsessed with Instagram. It’s my favorite social network and I just love looking at photos from all around the world, sharing my own and even leaving comments (yes really)! I was thinking over the weekend about what makes me really… [read more]

Do you have a +LEGO family like us?
I’ve been a LEGO fan for as long as I can remember. My first set came in a big blue bucket with a classic brick shaped lid. It was a basic set full of primary-colored bricks. I’m not even sure if it came with instructions, but I spent hours and hours building things. I remember… [read more]

Friends +  chocolate, what could be better?
Good friends are hard to come by. I think that goes without saying. But good friends also seem to come and go in waves. Sometimes with certain phases of life I am thrown together with people who I then don’t see for months at a time. The best friends are the ones who can pick… [read more]
