AMD FX APU – HP Envy Touchsmart Laptop front view

My son is a huge gamer and although he does have dedicated game consoles, he still prefers PC gaming on a laptop. Since I’m the one who spent a crapload of money on the latest console he’s apparently not using, I insisted he give me some darn good reasons why he prefers gaming on a laptop.

Bloodline on Netflix #StreamTeam

Bloodline Netflix. Obsessed. Bloodline is so full of twists, lies, deceit and sinister everything that I can’t stop watching. It’s a thriller of a series, and every character seems to have suspicious motives and buried secrets, so you’re never sure who’s good, bad, evil or trustworthy. And if you think you figure it out, it changes in an instant […]

Ham and Egg Salad Club Sandwich | Easter Leftover Ideas

I love a big Easter dinner, and I love leftovers! But I can only eat leftovers a couple times before I’m completely over them.  So every year I have to get creative with my Easter leftovers and turn them into an entirely different meal.

Bodie Island Light Station - Cape Hatteras National Seashore

Bodie Island Lighthouse – Cape Hatteras National Seashore #OBX

The Bodie Island Lighthouse is one of five Outer Banks lighthouses, and I visited it last weekend on my first trip to The Outer Banks. One of the first things I learned about the Bodie Island Lighthouse is that it’s pronounced “body”, not bo-dee. Although the name likely came from the original landowner, local lore has […]
