Vacuuming done the smart way with Hoover Air Cordless Series

I remember back in the mid 80’s when we got our first cordless telephone. Not talking about a cell phone either because that still came a few more years after this – I’m talking about that old fashioned phone that rang in the kitchen. We thought it was cutting edge back then – so why has it taken SO long to finally make a cordless vacuum?

There’s endless reasons why I dread the chore of ‘vacuuming': 1. The old one I have is insanely heavy  2. it’s difficult to maneuver, 3. the replacement bags are hard to find 4. I have outlet covers on every unused plug in my home…etc. So that means I have to drag a 20lb machine around the house to each room, hitting door frames and knicking corners while removing impossible outlet covers, plug and replug, vacuum then repeat. Wow! I’m tired just writing that – no wonder I hate vacuuming!

The new Hoover Air™ Cordless Series 3.0 Upright Vacuum helps address these common grievances and they’ve created a lightweight, cordless vacuum that can really do the job. It is powered by an interchangeable battery system that works with all products in the Hoover cordless line and comes with 2 batteries and a charger. I always have one ready to take over when the current one runs out. They are known as LithiumLife batteries have double the capacity of the standard 18-volt lithium Ion batteries which means longer runtime and fade-free power.

I’m completely in love with the way it handles with ease and pivots around corners. I can’t say that I’ve ever smiled while vacuuming, but I definitely didn’t mind tackling the chore because this awesome machine made it that much easier. It does a pro looking job in half the time and it’s easier to handle and steer.

The windtunnel 3 technology provides performance; suction power to lift and remove dirt and helps keep my floor free of debris for my little crawler. Between cooking, kids & toys there’s sure to be loads of messes happening over the holidays and the vacuum will make an appearance once or twice.

A whole new way to experience minecraft with others

Since there was plenty of 1 on 1 time for me and JP with boring afternoons while the baby slept, I broke down and decided to play minecraft with him over the summer months and see what it was all about. Surprisingly, it turns out I kinda enjoyed playing with him!

I used to be part of the same group of moms that couldn’t understand what was so special about the 8-bit graphics, but after playing a few times I realized just how imaginative the gaming experience can be. We began to build a house, then a roller coaster (which we named the happy coaster) , a swimming pool and countless other additions as the mood would strike.


So there’s this really neat little organization called and it’s where minecraft gamers alike can join together on the same server and play side by side. It takes place in a movie theater, so you can see your character on the big screen. See if there’s one near you!

No matter how much he begs, I’m not about to let my 6 year old join a public server and play with just anyone. Most people are ok but I’ve had enough of a gaming past to know better, which is why I like the idea of Its like putting the human connection back into digital gameplay – something kids desperately need as we fall down the digital rabbit hole. Who knows? Maybe it will lead to some lasting friendships!

What to expect now that she’s here



This second go-round of care for baby has been so much easier thus far. Most all moms I’ve talked to on the subject of having multiple children told me that I’d be a lot more relaxed this time – and they were right. When I was a new mom with JP, I freaked out about e v e r y t h i n g only to learn that most of it was normal occurrences with babies. I’m not sure what I would have done without my What to Expect® The First Year book to reassure me that everything was A-Ok. Reading definitely makes the idle time spent rocking in a chair go by so much quicker!


I’m back reading What to Expect® The First Year again because it’s been awhile and it helps me feel prepared when something out of the ordinary happens with the baby. Bright orange poop? Projectile spit up? Crying all night? This book has an answers for it all. Before baby, I loved having the book What to Expect® When You’re Expecting because there’s sooo many strange and wonderful things happening to your body when you’re pregnant. Some are pleasant (fuller breasts) and some not so pleasant – like morning sickness. Either way, when I noticed something change I was able to find a passage that reassured me everything was normal. Towards the end of my pregnancy, I turned to the book’s expertise because my fingers were tingling and found that it was a very common occurrence for mamas in the 3rd trimester.

As time goes on, and my baby morphs into a toddler I have “What to Expect the Second Year” to look forward to reading. It will definitely help give me perspective on understanding toddler meltdowns and the aggravating “no” stage.

The beauty of these books is not only are they relevant now, but they will be relevant to our daughters someday. Even though my little peanut is only 4 months, One day she will be a grown woman with all the same questions about her pregnancy should she decide to have children. One day these books will be hers and everything between the covers will still hold truth as it did today.

Plus they look cute on her bookcase for now!

What to Expect® When You're Expecting #AD

Topping the New York Times Bestseller list, What to Expect® When You’re Expecting has become a longstanding favorite among pregnant women for over a decade. It is the book recommended most by moms and doctors alike to help women understand their bodies and our babies
