AT&T Unite Explore by NETGEAR mobile hotspotWhen you’re a family on the go, particularly a busy military family as we are, data needs to be handy and accessible, especially if you’re a work-at-home parent like myself. We are pulled eleventy-billion directions at times, with our prescribed plans changing at the drop of a hat, and we need to be fluid and flexible. My husband is a highly busy soldier in command and demand. Often times, I have to step up and step in at a moment’s notice regardless of what I might be up to and handling myself. The kids’ practices and activities demand our attention, as well as my busy schedule. Sometimes, I have to make do with using practice time as work time just to ensure everything gets done. We military families know how to get creative in a pinch, don’t we? Thankfully, with my AT&T Unite Explore by NETGEAR mobile hotspot, I always have reliable and easy to use access to the internet no matter where we are or what we’re doing.

Getting work done at soccer practice with the AT&T Unite ExploreI am a huge advocate of making do with what you’ve got, especially as a military family. If I have to be tied down to watching multiple soccer practices back to back each week, why can’t I creatively get a little work done while I’m there, you know? Find a shady spot away from the threat of balls being kicked in my direction, let the littler ones play, and goooo! The Unite Explore is such a handy little mobile hotspot, so sleek and tiny fitting right into the arm of my soccer chair or safely by my side. Just a few quick steps and I’m connected and easily able to do whatever I need to do with ease, even on the soccer field sidelines, or from the comforts of my car.

AT&T Unite Explore by NETGEARThe kids enjoy using the hotspot when we travel – they now can use the tablets and other WiFI enabled devices they couldn’t on the road, helping to keep them entertained. Even when I don’t have work to do on the sideline, it’s nice to be able to flip on Netflix in the shade for the littles to keep them cool and content.

Water resistant AT&T mobile hotspot by NETGEARI’m always concerned about our family’s privacy and security of our data and info. This mobile hotspot offers secure WiFi wherever we go! Another huge plus (especially when I’m on the soccer sidelines) – this rugged mobile hotspot is not only water resistant, but it’s able to take dirt/sand and withstand being dropped! Hooray! I can breathe easy using it around my children!

Military AT&T Unite Expire by NETGEARMy husband also enjoys using this rugged mobile hotspot when he needs it. Soldier duties a-callin’, you know. He and his soldier buddies might need safe and secure data on the go. Because of its convenient size, he’s able to pop that little guy in his work backpack and take it with him.

Soccer practiceAnother huge perk about this AT&T device, it’s a 4G LTE/4G hotspot! This assures you the fastest speeds when you need them where available. The price tag is also pretty sweet, just $49.99 with a 2 year contract.

Check Out The Dash Robot at Best Buy #TechToys

Dash out of the box

This is a sponsored post for Best Buy. I couldn't have been but nine-or-so years old when one of my mother's day care parents bought our family an IBM computer for Christmas as a "thank you" for taking such wonderful care of their children. He was an IBMer, so he got a great deal on it.. a Tandy, if memory serves me correctly. I immediately gravitated towards it, and he helped show me how to 'code' back then (using a tape recorder) and … Keep Reading

Taco Macaroni for School Lunch #BackToSchool #NaturalFoods

Fresh school lunches with natural foods and Horizon Organic products

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Horizon Organic. Back to school time is one of my favorite times of the year. Maybe it's because of the return to a routine after a lazy, crazy summer? Could be it's the fresh haircuts on my kids, the fancy new duds my kids choose for their new school year? Or, maybe, it's just because I geek out over dusting off our Operation Awesome School Lunch project! I just loooove sending them to … Keep Reading

A Little Family Time with Netflix

Family Time with Netflix

I’m a compensated member of the Netflix Stream Team. Family movie night. Car-ride duets. Weekend dance fests. The best moments happen when families come together, and much of that happens over music and entertainment. It’s why 40% of families say they routinely watch all sorts of shows together. It’s also why you grow nostalgic for the music your parents loved and eventually want to pass musical favorites down to your kids as well. I don't know … Keep Reading

And THIS is why Mommy drinks at 6pm on a Friday (Open House)


Why are you having a glass of wine at 6pm, mom? BECAUSE OF OPEN HOUSE, THAT'S WHY. 3-5pm the paper said. That's when I wanted to leave, EARLY. Get there early, get in, get out. At 3:15 I start corralling the troops, and my 9yo's like "But I'm hungry, I want oatmeal." Okay.... "Wait, where are we going?" She says. "To the school for Open House." I respond. She gasps. "WHAT? I can't wear this!?" And she drops the oatmeal like it's on … Keep Reading

Beer Cheese Pretzel Dip with Snyder’s of Hanover #PretzelsBaby

Pretzel Beer Cheese Dip recipe

This recipe is sponsored by Snyder’s of Hanover. I have a hearty love for pretzels. Some people fantasize about candy houses, or bacon houses. Me? I want a big ol' pretzel house with a walk-in pantry filled with pretzels and pretzel buns next to the biggest vat of melty cheese sauce ready for dipping (or swimming). Ahem. Yes, it is that serious. I could update my Facebook relationship status to "In relationship with Pretzels" and it still … Keep Reading
