My Stream Team Welcome Kit Arrived

I’m apart of the Stream Team and all opinions are my own. 

Nope, I wasn’t looking out the window waiting for the delivery man : / .   I’m excited to be apart of the Netflix Stream Team and yesterday my kit arrived at my door.

When it comes to hooking up anything in our house I play like a damsel in distress.  Heck! I can’t do every darn thing!  Have to leave something for the mister. 

image

Honestly, whenever there’s anything that requires hooking up or tech devices my husband takes over. He wants to be the first with the 411. Actually I think it has a lot to do with him having the latest news in the shop and topic discussions for his clients.  Guess he wants the ups on the barbershop talk.

Any who, my kit included a Roku 3 and all the necessities for easy hookup.

My husband had it hooked up in no time.  After hooking it up there were some codes and instructions we were prompted to do.  Once that was all taken care of we were good to go.

Like I said my husband took over by watching, 24 and I feel asleep 🙁

Well, today I had a blast while the Roku hog was away by learning more about the device.  Watched some Extreme Couponing on Netflix.  Set up my YouTube account and watched some videos.  I’m gonna love that!! Love seeing YouTube videos on a larger screen.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook as I share while I learn all it has to offer.

Do you have a Netflix subscription? If so, how do you stream your Netflix?

Blogging on the go #VZWVoices #MOM

Verizon Wireless Mom Voices Disclosure

In one of my latest vlogs I spoke about me taking my Samsung Galaxy Tab with me while Jala is at ballet practice.  Well, last week I took it with me to do some research on Concussion Laws and it worked wonderful.   Now, today I’m here again at ballet practice waiting on Jala as I compose this post.

Talk about reviewing on the go… just snapped this shot. I’m sure I could have zoomed in a bit closer.   

Since my site is on WordPress, I do have the WordPress app installed on my tablet in order to make it easier to blog.  Otherwise, it would be a bit difficult.   Another thing… since the Samsung Galaxy Tab has an Android operating system ( which I’m #teamandroid all day) I didn’t have to learn how to use it.  My cellphone is a Samsung Galaxy 3 and many of you know I blog from it consistently and I rarely blog from my laptop.  The Tablet helps me get a better view especially those nights I’m in bed scheduling posts for the following day.  

Do you blog from any of your mobile devices? If so, which devices and what do you enjoy about it?

Verizon Wireless Hotspot Saved The Weekend #VWVoices #Mom

Verizon Wireless Mom Voices Disclosure

“A Family That Hotspots Together, Stays Together. ”

A couple weekends ago we were having issues with our home internet service.  If you’ve ever had problems with your Internet,  with kids…..in the summer….

Kid 1:MA!!!!!! WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE INTERNET??????

Kid 2:Ma!!!!!! The internets not working!!!!!

Kid 3:Maaaaaaa! MAAAAAAA!!!!!

HOT SPOT, take me away!!!!!

This is when being a Verizon Wireless Voices Ambassador comes in handy!  When receiving my Samsung Galaxy Tab, I also received unlimited Hotspot.  When the Internet debacle occurred, I activated my Hotspot and after activating (turning it on) everyone was able to connect their devices. 

The Hotspot connection was fast and we were able to enjoy our weekend without further interruption. Our Internet was out the entire weekend and we had a total of 5 devices connected. Verizon Wireless Hotspot definitely saved our weekend.

Jala’s #BarbieIsMoving Experience

If your the mom of young kids or when you kids were younger, did the get the “Are we there yet?” Syndrome?  Well, in some cases it’s the… “Are we going today?” Syndrome.  Whenever I would tell my kids we’re going somewhere Friday, I’m going to hear about it everyday, until that day.  So, I got wise.  I wouldn’t tell them until the day before or that very day.  I told Jala we were going to the Barbie Is Moving Tour, the day before. 😉

When we woke up Sunday morning she knew exactly what was on the agenda.  Get ready and GO! LOL

And she was ready to go.  We arrived and there was a line of parents with daughters waiting to experience Barbie Is Moving.

Barbie’s house that she has placed on the market.  Which was actually where the girls walked the runway.

But before Jala walked the runway we stopped to have her face painted.

Warning: When your child has his or her face painted…. they are not going to want to wash it :-/

After having her face painted she walked the runway.

After walking the runway she enjoyed some other activities.  One of those activities was to design a dress for Barbie.  It was like using carbon ink to imprint the design on a dress and that dress was able to be worn by Barbie.

Coloring the dress

After designing the dress they were also able to color them.

Next, was the Barbie Mega Bloks.  They were able to pick out a few Bloks and were given a kit to take home with additional pieces.

Jala had a great time.  Something I would have definitely enjoyed as a child.  I loved playing with Barbies when I was a kid.
