With so many of us traveling this time of year home safety is a big concern for all of us. Even though we live in what I feel is a relatively safe neighborhood, my travel schedule is ever increasing and I wanted to add a measure of reassurance while I am away.

I was a little intimidated with setting up security cameras until I realized this set was completly wireless! Seriously one of the easiest set ups ever! The 4 camera set has an  “ONLY AT BEST BUY”  exclusive pricing – a great value at $499.99. This products enables you to safeguard your home or business with the 4 motion-activated Netgear Arlo Smart Home security cameras.

Here are a few details that made this a perfect product for our family:

· Downloadable apps enable you to view live video from your compatible Android, Apple® iOS, Amazon Kindle, Windows or Mac device

· Completely wire free, for use inside and outside – weatherproof for temperatures ranging from 14° to 122°

· Enables you to capture 720p video footage both during the day and at night , with a 130° field of view

· Motion-activated design automatically records motion once detected, sending e-mail or app notifications

· Comes with 6 magnetic camera mounts and 9 mounting screws, for easy installation on a wall or flat surface

· Works with other Netgear products

Another EXCLUSIVE at Best Buy, I highly recommend is the Netgear® Nighthawk™ DST Router and DST Adapter (with Geek Squad included!!).

We have a ridiculous number of devices connected in our home almost all the time. We had upgraded our speeds but something was still missing. This is a brand new router that was exclusively developed between Netgear, an industry leader in the networking world, and Best Buy, to help provide consumers with an easy, all-in-one solution to support their home’s connected devices.

Did you know there are on average 7 “connected devices” in every US home?! I’m sure our household has at least double that.

As the number of Wi-Fi dependent products increase in a home  from smart phones (often several in a home), to tablets, to laptops, to computers, and Wi-Fi printers, this puts a strain on the home’s network, especially the router. With the interest in online gaming and 4k TVs, connected devices such as smart thermostats, plus the need to stream shows from Netflix or hulu, it places even more demands on the network. Many households may experience slow Wi-Fi, dropped calls, or experience “dead zones” – which could be improved upon with an “AC” router, Wi-Fi extenders and expert help.

· The AC1900 comes with one DST, or “Dead Spot Terminator,” adapter – to eliminate your Wi-Fi dead zones; place it in an area where you get little/no reception, to improve Wi-Fi access. Additional adapters can be purchased for other dead zones.

· This high-performance router was built to support 10+ connected devices – you can also prioritize devices for streaming videos or music, and included advanced features for lag-free gaming

The Chase family is about to enter full on birthday season. From September thru January, we have at least one birthday per month in our immediate household.
  • Sebastian=September
  • Randy=October
  • Alice=November
  • Sydney= December
  • Jonathan=January

Luckily Kaitlyn gave us a break and waited until April 1st. This birthday list include extended family, friends, coworkers or teacher gifts. In between we have ton of gift giving holidays too.

We love to shop and celebrate another year with our favorite people but knowing what will make the perfect birthday gift can be hard! The other factor is finding the time. Shopping online our go to solution for everything. I can save time, money, and I have a lot of options.

The Best Buy Online Gift Ideas Experience ( is hands down one of my favorite places to shop. It  features gift ideas and inspiration to help easily find the perfect birthday gift for anyone. It gives lists of great birthday gift ideas for ‘Him’, ‘Her’, ‘Kids’, and ‘Teens’ helping me quickly zero-in on the right gifts for the right people.

Create a Best Buy Wish List

I especially love the Best Buy Wish List. You can tell your family and friends to create and share a birthday wish list, so that you can get them the gifts that they really want. With our children all having birthdays so close to holidays, its awesome for them to create a list and I can send the list to grandparents, aunts, and uncles who want to know “what the kids are into these days”.  You can also use the Best Buy Wish List to keep track of all the great birthday gift ideas that come along.  Setting up a list is simple and takes no time to get started.

Go here to set up a wish list now & encourage your family members to do the same. When its time to pick out a gift for them you are going to thank me!

Here’s a challenge: Mama’s never pick out gifts for themselves. Tell me, what’s one thing you would put on YOUR OWN Best Buy Wish List?

GoPro at Best Buy Father's Day

I was actually shopping for one of these yesterday (shhhh, for myself). The new GoPro camera is perfect for capturing sweet family moments, long summer breaks and every journey that lies ahead. There are so many beach & water pictures that I want to capture and GoPro does it best!

GoPro at Best Buy

While we already have several different cameras and recording devices, the GoPro HERO +LCD just offers features that my others don’t. Here is what really makes the difference : 1080p60 video, 8MP photos and built-in Wi-Fi, plus the convenience of a touch display. It also has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® that connect to the GoPro App for shot preview, total camera control and easy content sharing to Instagram, Facebook, and more.

Get a Jurassic World Sneak Peek @BestBuy with @SamsungTVUSA #SUHDatBestBuy

*The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

I can still remember the first time watching Jurassic Park being on the edge of my seat and holding my breath as I watched the water in the drinking glass ripple. I have to say that even as an adult, I am equally excited for the Jurassic World release. Right now you can see exclusive footage of the movie in Samsung Entertainment Experience Shops inside Best Buy.  Be one of the first to view the footage and receive a pack of Jurassic World dinosaur trading cards. Hurry to a store near you because this exclusive opportunity will only be available until June 13th!

Since summer is in full effect I am thinking of making this a fun family event leading up to the official movie release. We will have a few dinosaur snacks and a throwback movie day to watch the original. Then we will head over to Best Buy to see the sneak peek of Jurassic World. It looks like it will have everyone on the edge of their seats.

Samsung SUHD at Best buy

I’m equally excited to check out the sneak peek on the  Samsung SUHD TV.  Why SUHD TV? The  Samsung 4K SUHD TV is powered by a revolutionary panel featuring Nano-crystal technology. The immersive curved screen portrays a greater sense of depth making every scene come alive. Everything you love to watch, not just movies,  can be easily accessed with the advanced Samsung Smart TV. Here are some of the features that I think make it a cut above:


· Brighter, more true-to-life picture with a wider range of colors

· Peak Illuminator Pro gives enhanced picture detail and color

· Improved black levels and contrast for a greater sense of depth

· 4 times the resolution of full HD

· Smart View 2.0 – Watch your TV on your mobile device

· Faster speed for your media with the Octa-Core Processor

Other features and details can be found at

I was so impressed when we went in to see it for ourselves. I’m picturing a summer full of family movie nights and sleepovers getting a HUGE upgrade.


I encourage you to go in and see the difference for yourself! I really makes things come alive on screen – not just dinosaurs! You can save up to $1500 on Samsung SUHD TVs at Best Buy stores May 31st – June 13th.

Do you love twitter parties? @BestBuy and Brand Ambassador @dodomesticdad will be hosting an SUHD Twitter Party on Thursday June 9th at 7:00pm CST. Feel free to join the twitter party for a chance to receive Best Buy gift cards. RSVP here:

The Only thing on my Christmas List is at Best Buy #HintingSeason


Product disclosure

Every year after the Thanksgiving meal, our family makes out their Christmas lists to exchange. It isn’t in materialistic or greedy way. It’s just in a dreamy or hopeful way. Sometimes we put silly things on our lists and we all laugh together. I also always save the lists our kids make and put them in their keepsake books. I think it will be fun for them to look back on the things they were wishing for.

This year I had a lot of trouble coming up with a list. There really was only 1 thing that I could think to put on it. It was THE one thing that I had been wishing for on vacations, during big events etc all year long.  I’d been researching, asking questions from friends, and drooling over the newest  models. My husband has to be tired of my going back and forth over all the brands and options.

Any guesses what the 1 thing on my Christmas list is this year?

Canon Holiday at Best Buy

I spend a great majority of my time behind the lens photographing our kids, family, vacations, and even products I am blogging about.
