Thanksgiving Eve Pics Brought To You By The Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Verizon Wireless Mom Voices Disclosure

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and I hope you’re enjoying time with your family this holiday.

The new camera my husband bought me for an early Christmas gift, I decided to keep it. I’ve been playing around a lot with it in the kitchen and trying to get the hang of it. However, in the meantime…. I enjoy grabbing my phone to take quick, convenient and quality photos. It allows me to upload them to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter quicker. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is excellent for that. The photos are crisp, editable and I don’t miss out on opportune moments.

Opportune Moments
I spent my day cooking because I enjoy relaxing on the holiday if, I’m not hosting. My mom makes her famous potato salad when she comes over and this stuff should be in someone’s store! Delicious! No matter how hard I try…. I can’t get close to her potato salad.

This morning I made Penne & Cheese with Shrimp & a separate batch for my youngest daughter since she’s allergic to shrimp. Along with that I cooked Mustard Greens, Cornish Hens & Cornbread Dressing.

Cornbread

I knew I had sage in the cabinet

But not this much LOL

The dressing turned out fantastic! I cooked a total of 5 Cornish Hens and stuffed 2 at the request of my son.

It’s not Thanksgiving Day yet and this is what happened.

Remind me to never allow them to taste test. My mother said, “you may need to make more dressing. ”

Can’t wait to enjoy the dressing with some cranberry sauce tomorrow. Which cranberry sauce do you prefer?

image

1. Are you the new school can jellied cranberry sauce?
2. The canned with actual cranberries in it?
3. Or old school, traditional and home made kind of cranberry sauce?

I’m the new school can jellied with not a cranberry to be seen, kinda girl.

He’s Baaaaaaack!
Lastly, you know last year I jumped on the Elf on the Shelf bandwagon.

Since the tradition is new in our home I decided that Roger will return the night before Thanksgiving.

Heeeeerrrrrreeeee’s, ROGER! Jala will be so happy to see him in the morning. Let the elfing foolery begin.

How did you spend your Thanksgiving Eve?

Samsung Galaxy Note 3:My Favorite Black Friday App

Verizon Wireless Mom Voices Disclosure

This week I decided to download a few Black Friday deal apps.  One thing I’m not, I’m not an app hoarder.  I hoard other stuff 😉  I spent a little time on a few apps, deleted those that didn’t interest me and kept the one that did.

image

This one is my fave.  The Black Friday Deal Finder powered by Fat Wallet. As I go about my daily business and a store or item come to mind, I’ll do a quick search. 

I can search by store (stores are in alphabetical order) or category.

image

Once I select a store… there’s the option to search by category or view ad. Being the visual person that I am, I like that option best.

image

image

So far I’m only planning to go to Michaels to pick up one thing….or maybe two. I’m so glad I did my research because the item I want will be 60% off. That’s my kind of deal. However, that’s all the Black Friday shopping I’ll be doing. That’s my plan and I’m sticking to it!

Do you plan on doing any Black Friday shopping and if so, what tools or apps will you be using to get the best deal?

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.

image

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?

Bookmarking my favorite blogs on my Samsung Galaxay Tab

Verizon Wireless Mom Voices Disclosure

Today I’ve been bookmarking my favorite blogs and adding them to a widget on my Samsung Galaxay Tab.  Many of them I’m already subscribed to if the option is available on their blogs, but I also love having them at the touch of my finger or stylus too.  Yeah, I won a stylus along with some awesome Bic pens from Shelly’s blog over at MOMFILES.  So I’m upping my tech game a bit. 

I’m still in the process of adding my favorite blogs and as I remember them, I add them on.

image

I’ve got a long way to go. LOL I also like the fact of being able to put my bookmarks in separate folders.   So, those decorating blogs I stalk…. I’ll make a folder for them too. 

When I received my Samsung Galaxy Tab with the Verizon service, my goal was to make my tablet my go to, my tech companion, my mobile office and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing and I’m loving every bit of it.

Do you use a system to read your favorite blogs and if so, what system or tools do you use?
