LG Appliances Twin Wash

Disclaimer:  I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received teh product/service at a reduced price or for free.  

Laundry! I may be the odd one out, but I really don't mind it.  Yes, I too have loads of laundry a week.  We have two teens who both play sports where they get dirty and have to change two or three times a day, so I have plenty to do.  I've even taught the kids to do their own laundry every now and then and help out.  Funny as it may be, they never complain.  Most of the time I don't even have to ask, if they need something, they'll take care of it!  With LG's TwinWash system you get the best of both worlds.  For small loads like those days they need their uniform there is the LG SideKick pedestal washer.  You can even use it simultaneously while you do a bigger load up top on your LG Front load washer.  Believe me, this is a life save when it comes to two kids each needing their uniforms, same day and then a husband who need clean work clothes in the morning.  How sweet is that!?!  How many times have you ran into that issue of everyone all of a sudden needing to do laundry at the same time! lol!  Finally a solution! 

Not only do these washer have mega capacity to tackle any size load, they are energy efficient while giving you the best cleaning performance.  No wonder more households have chosen LG laundry over any other brand!  If you've been thinking of upgrading, now is the perfect time!  From now through April 25th receive up to $500 off a LG laundry solution for your home!

The Mob Museum Hosts Commemorative Events, February 14-16

To celebrate six years of educating the community as well as visitors from around the world, The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, announces a week of special events and debut of three new, permanent exhibit additions. 

Wednesday, Feb. 14, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. – Anniversary, Free Admission for Locals and New Permanent Exhibits Open to the Public.   Nevada residents will receive free admission and non-Nevada residents will receive buy-one, get-one admission all day. In addition, the Museum opens a brand-new exhibition and two new experiential spaces that day:

Organized Crime Today Exhibition 
Featuring artifacts, graphics and a large, interactive, 17-foot-wide Global Networks touchscreen wall, this exhibition space brings the story of organized crime into the present day, as well as modernizes the way the Museum tells that story. In addition to covering present-day rackets, Organized Crime Today explores active crime groups—such as outlaw motorcycle gangs, Yakuza, Mexican cartels, Eastern European mafias and MS-13—and the international array of law enforcement agencies that seek to eradicate them. Exhibits and corresponding digital content on the Museum’s website (www.themobmuseum.org) will be regularly updated to reflect the latest global organized crime developments. 

Use of Force Training Experience
One of two new experiential spaces that explore law enforcement methods of identifying, apprehending, and prosecuting criminals, the Use of Force Training Experience places guests in the shoes of law enforcement officers. Guests will engage in an intensive training session using both digital and live role-playing scenarios that demonstrate the speed and complexity of use of force decisions. Related exhibits examine an array of factors that influence law enforcement responses to real or perceived threats, with a particular focus on the use of deadly force.

The Crime Lab Experience
The Crime Lab offers guests a hands-on, interactive exploration of five different forensic science topics. Guests explore the Crime Lab during the 25-minute facilitated experience, which is guided by a Museum educator and features original multimedia with insights from forensic science experts. While spending time at each station, guests will acquire a foundational understanding of scientific techniques used to conduct death investigation, DNA analysis, fingerprint analysis, crime scene investigation and firearms examination.

Absolutely Love this time of year!!


We love to celebrate!  Any little chance we get to have fun, laugh, enjoy and make memories is good in my book!  This year, I’ve resolved to have more little moments of celebration in the New Year. We all look forward to the big celebrations, like Christmas, New Year’s and July 4th. But did you know there are so many other quirky holidays on the calendar just begging to be commemorated? What about a slice of garlic bread for National Garlic Day? Some pet cuddles for National Cat Day?

I’m excited to share that I’ve partnered with viral holiday website National Today to share the ultimate 2018 holiday celebration calendar. Below, you’ll find the most exciting holidays for the next couple months!  Throughout the year we will be posting more — so you can party all year round with us. 

I love celebrating at National Today because, not only do they clue me into each month’s holiday—they also give some fun holiday history, facts that will blow my mind, and helpful deals that help me celebrate in style.  This is great if you have kids!  We homeschool, so throwing these facts in and getting a chance to celebrate gives my kids memories that they will never forget and maybe even carry on with their own children. 

Remember to mark these holidays on your calendar, and cheers to a 2018 full of celebration!

Here are a few classic February holidays. Galentine’s Day, anyone?

Pineapples on pizza, yes or no? The debate rages on.

Galentine’s Day (Feb. 13)
This classic holiday was made famous by Parks and Recreation.

Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14)
Let’s be real, isn’t all of February pretty much Valentine’s Day?

It can literally make someone's day!

Get ready to celebrate these 5 holidays … but remember to beware the Ides of March!

National Pancake Day (Mar. 7)
‘Pan’ I have a whole plate of these?

International Women’s Day (Mar. 8)
In my book, every day should be Women’s Day.

Ides of March (Mar. 15)
Did you know “ides” actually means “15”?

National Puppy Day (Mar. 23)
We all deserve a puppy (or five).

Red Nose Day (Mar. 24)
This holiday is huge in the U.K. — it’s comedy relief for charity!
