• Happy First Day Of Spring!

    Spring is finally here and I know a couple of people who are very excited about it. For us, it has been pretty warm all month. Sometimes it reaches the upper 90s.

  • Family Treats At Whole Foods

    Dog treats that Rocky actually likes are not always the easiest to come by. If you thought having a toddler meant “picky eater” think again.

    IKEA announced the company will be selling wireless charging stations as of mid-April 2015.  IKEA wanted to make charging a natural part of a consumer’s home, so they chose side tables and lamps and turned them into wireless chargers. “With smartphones being such a natural part of our lives, we want the charging part to become a natural part of our homes,” as noted in a company press statement. “As a result, we’ve created a collection of wireless chargers that make charging a lot more available, yet a lot less obvious (goodbye messy cables!).” The names of the furniture that will include
