Product Review: Solid Cordz

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Here’s a true story that happened at my house recently.  I wake up and come downstairs and my mom goes “Katie! I left the Christmas lights on all night because I had to use this big extension cord because the timer didn’t fit in the box on the porch and then it snowed and then the timer got frozen so it never turned off! I need to find a way to keep the timer on the porch so it is covered!”  I knew that I had a set of Solid Cordz in my room, but hadn’t had a chance to look at them yet because they arrived while I was nursing an arm injury and working on blog posts was the last thing on my mind. So I told her where to find them and told her to grab one and try it out.  She came in “That was exactly what I needed! It sticks out of the box but the timer is still on the porch!”  (Note: It does say for indoor use only, but we figure covered on the porch it will be safe. It has snowed again since the original frozen timer issue and we’ve not had a problem.)

I had intended to show using the Solid Cordz to help with a power strip – because several of my plugs (camera battery chargers, for the most part) take up 2 slots on the power strip once you plug them in.  Once you have the Solid Cordz you can fully utilize all of the plugs on the strip and things are kept a bit more orderly.  As you can see in the photos below – the strip before – there are 2 spots open and I have one in the side which doesn’t seem to work as well as the middle.  Then I put the battery charger only for it to cover the additional plug, but wait! Add a SolidCordz to the 3rd plug and attach the camera charger to it and there is no problem adding the 4th plug!

Book Review: Happily Ever After

happilyWhile I don’t watch The Bachelor or Bachelorette, I’ve obviously seen a lot about Trista and Ryan in the media since their relationship was one of the few to actually have worked out after the show ended.  I always thought their story was so great and that Ryan was so sweet!  Happily Ever After is by Trista and tells about how she first felt she was in a bit of a rut so she decided to try out to be on The Bachelor.  After having her heart broken, she jumped at the chance to be the first Bachelorette, where she met Ryan, they fell in love and well… Happily Ever After.  Or something like that.

The book talks a bit about of the challenges they have had to face in their marriage, having kids, and how to balance everything once they have kids.  Since it’s a self-help book she gives a lot of advice in addition to sharing her story.

Something I took from the book was how she tweets about her “favorite part of the day” every day.  I think it is too easy to get wrapped up in having a bad day – but if you really sit there and think about it – there had to have been something good – or your favorite part of the day.  This is something that I am going to consider doing as well because I seem to all too easily fall into a funk after having a couple of bad days – but there HAS to be some good there.  I think if I focus on that, no matter how small, my attitude towards things should chance.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book

Whether or not you remember Trista (Rehn) Sutter from her heartbreak on the first season of The Bachelor reality show or as the original Bachelorette, you’ve probably seen her on the cover of magazines or on shows like Dancing with the Stars. This former pediatric physical therapist and Miami Heat dancer had her fairy tale fall into place with a whirlwind courtship and dream-come-true wedding to a poetry-writing firefighter Ryan Sutter. Since falling in love on The Bachelorette more than ten years ago, Trista and Ryan have been busy raising two kids.

Trista is often asked her secret to being one of the rare reality-TV relationships to make it to the altar and beyond. In this heartfelt book, she shares the simple yet profound keys to finding everyday happiness and success: gratitude and grace.
