I love technology that makes my life easier (who am I kidding, I love ANYTHING that makes my life easier!) so when I heard about the chance to get the new LG G3 smartphone from Verizon (and the opportunity to share how you can score one for free, too ) – I jumped at the chance! Disclosure – it was actually more of a hop-skip type motion…but jump sounded better.
- 4x the resolution of HD, with a 5.5” Quad HD screen
- Crisp photos using a 13 MP camera with Laser Auto Focus and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS)+
- Smart Notice adaptive notifications
- Simply tap to unlock with KNOCK Code™, utilizing over 80,000 lock combinations
- 2.5GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor on The Fastest Nationwide 4G LTE Network
Vlad Savov with theverge.com calls the LG G3 “a phone worth waiting for.” Savov wraps-up his review (you can view the entire article here) with this assessment – “Whether it’s the fun of a quick, laser-guided camera, the reassurance of a long-lasting battery, or the fast performance of a mature Android OS, this phone does everything well.

I personally can’t wait to try out the camera on the LG G3. As a blogger (and a mom!) I take most of my pictures on my smartphone, so it’s important to me that I capture photos that are sharp and clear – especially when I’ll be using them with posts online. I’m also crazy excited about a long-lasting battery. I’m on my phone all. day. long. and my current phone’s battery drains quickly. This one promises to outlast the rest.
Do you live in the Houston area? You can get a new LG G3 for FREE!
They will be offering drawings for other LG G3s as well as other prizes throughout the day and tech representatives from LG Mobile will be on hand to answer questions.
This event is part of the LG G3 Countdown, a week-long series of online and in-person special events to help introduce the world to the new LG G3 smartphone. Check out other areas outside of Houston hosting similar events and giveaways here.
So go ahead…jump, hop, skip or go old school and just drive down to the Verizon store tomorrow and get yourself one of those free phones. Because…awesome!
I will receive a LG G3 so I can experience the newest smartphone first hand; however, I did not receive any other compensation for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
In just two days, I’ll be attending Blogger Bash in NYC to learn about the latest and greatest products and initiatives from hundreds of companies. It is going to be a great experience and Tanya Avery and I will be sharing with you what we learn along the way!
I’m SO excited that photographer Anne Geddes will there to unveil her latest project – Under The Sea: a 2015 calendar featuring images of babies as characters in their own underwater pantomime.
Seriously…how cute is this little mermaid?
The 12 images in the calendar end with December’s grand finale The Great Barrier Reef – a tribute to Anne’s home country, Australia. I can’t wait to see it!
Anne Geddes, a world renowned photographer, has been capturing unique and beautiful images of children for years. I enjoyed her work before I became a mother. Now, with two children of my own, I respect and enjoy her talents even more.
It is a goal of mine to become a better photographer…to capture the feeling behind a subject, to bring out the beauty in what already exists - to make people smile. Anne Geddes does this in such a beautiful way. She is truly Living Her Dream, pursuing her passion that started with a small studio in a garage behind her garden and has grown to include a body of work that is loved and enjoyed by millions of people.
What an inspiration.

I look forward to bringing you news from Blogger Bash soon!
In a few days I’ll be headed to New York City for Blogger Bash! I’m very excited about all the fantastic brands and bloggers who are attending. It’s going to be an unbelievable couple of days and I can’t wait to see what’s in store! I love New York. I was born and raised upstate, […][Continue reading...]
The other day I had the worst. run. ever. I started too late in the morning. By the time I hit the road it was already way too humid and hot for me and even though I know better, I also ate before I left so I started cramping right away. My legs were like lead. […][Continue reading...]
My kids, especially Annie, love to do arts and crafts projects. While hanging out with some friends last week we had a wild streak and decided to break out the paint. Led by the very crafty and talented Kelly with Life In The Middle (love her!) we took some plain canvas shoes (we got ours from Five […][Continue reading...]
There’s no doubt about it. It’s about to get hot in Houston. Summer solstice was last weekend and even though it’s been warm here for quite awhile, it really is true – summer has just gotten started. July and August bring the worst of the summer heat and we often break up the days with […][Continue reading...]
By now you probably can guess that I love to go out to eat, but finding healthy food options (especially for a quick bite) can sometimes be challenging. One of my favorite places? Salata. So when Salata, The Next Generation Salad Bar, recently sent me a gift card to have lunch on them and gave […][Continue reading...]
On June 6, 2014, Five Below, a retailer of trendy items targeted at the pre-teen and teen market, opened eight stores including the following locations in Houston: Memorial City at Hedwig village, Richmond at Bella Terra, Tomball and Copperfield.

I don’t mean to brag, but I’d like to think I know a thing or two about pizza. I have two kids and since we keep pretty busy with work, school and after-school activities, we’ve definitely had our share of “pizza for dinner” nights. Sometimes we are literally so busy, there’s just not enough time […][Continue reading...]
If you follow me on Twitter, you probably noticed a tremendous increase in tweets April 10-13. I was lucky enough to be able to attend the 5th Annual Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and I couldn’t stop sharing about all I was learning and the fun I was having during the event. My family and […][Continue reading...]
