As I've been scrolling around the web for the past couple of weeks I've seen a lot of hot takes on 2019 "New Year's Resolutions". I don't know if people are truly sick of the word (or maybe more the idea of) resolutions, or if they're just trying to think of a more clever way … Continue reading 2019 New Year’s Tech Housekeeping
What’s in a Name? + HitchSwitch
Names are funny. You have no control over the name you're given. You're born and your parents slap a name on your birth certificate and bam, you're stuck with it for life. Mostly. I guess there ARE ways to change your first name, although unless your parents do something like this to you, you'll probably just stick … Continue reading What’s in a Name? + HitchSwitch
Stop the (SPAM) Madness + RoboKiller App
Does anyone else feel like spam phone calls and robocalls are OUT. OF. CONTROL?! They are like an unstoppable force that we've learned to live with because we have no freakin' idea how to stop them. Telemarketer calls (especially calls to your cell phone), used to be only slightly annoying because they happened so infrequently. But … Continue reading Stop the (SPAM) Madness + RoboKiller App
Saturday Tech Bytes last week...Sunday Tech Bytes this week. What. Is. Happening. I promise they'll be back to their regularly scheduled Friday slot soon. Life's just coming at me fast right now. We're visiting C's family in South Carolina, and between playing with a pack of (ok, four) dogs, chasing a baby around, and all … Continue reading Tech Bytes
Tech Tidbits: iPhone, Where Art Thou?
Last weekend while I was taking a walk, I found an iPhone in the public restroom at our local park. As I'm sure many have done before, and many will do again, it was left sitting atop the toilet paper holder. Because I'm so attached to my gadgets, my first thought was about the panic … Continue reading Tech Tidbits: iPhone, Where Art Thou?
This week's Tech Bytes are uncharacteristically sliding into your Saturday morning. A combination of the fact that we have a new puppy, and...well, that's really it. We have a new puppy that has turned our lives upside down. In (mostly) a good way! More on him later. If you're like us, you're sitting at home … Continue reading Tech Bytes
Makin’ Groceries + Amazon/Whole Foods App
Living in New Orleans for the past 6 years has been, well, interesting to say the least. As someone who grew up in the Midwest (what's up, Ohio!), and had lived in pretty much every region of the country EXCEPT the South, I don't think I could have ever imagined just how unique and different … Continue reading Makin’ Groceries + Amazon/Whole Foods App
Guys. We're THIRTY DAYS out! I know I've been terrible about giving you regular updates on all of my wedding planning activities, and most of you probably couldn't care less about the part-time job that COSTS me money, that I've willingly taken on. But here we are. 30 days. Crazy. When we got engaged back … Continue reading Tech Bytes
Tech Tidbits: WTF, ILY, OMW, and more
This is one of those hidden features on your phone that, once you find out about it, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. Seriously, I think it's THAT game-changing. Ok, so maybe I'm overselling it...but maybeee I'm not. I'll let you be the judge. If you're anything like me, you probably feel like … Continue reading Tech Tidbits: WTF, ILY, OMW, and more
Life Through a New Lens: Learning DSLR Photography
I have always had a thing for photography. Taking my own photos, of course. But also just admiring the beautiful photos that others take. I have followed quite a few photographers on Instagram for years, and love to see what brilliant shot they are going to imagine up next. They don't even have to be true … Continue reading Life Through a New Lens: Learning DSLR Photography
