#Giveaway @touchbeverages Touch Brewer Brewing System For Single Cup Coffee Oh Yeah!

 Touch Brewer Brewing System For Single Cup Coffee Oh Yeah!


    Coffee lovers unite. You are going to want to hear all about the new Touch Brewer T526S Brewing System For Single Cup Coffee. Hubby and I have always been coffee fans forever. Being two teachers we started every morning with a big ole’ pot of coffee- leaving for school with half a pot to go to waste every single day. Not this year. Well, it’s just hubby who is still teaching but we do enjoy that special cup of coffee every morning together. We have both been taken for the easiness and quality of the Touch Brewer. 


Five reasons hubby and I both adore the Touch Brewer:

1. The Touch Brewer is quick and easy. It’s ready to start brewing in under twenty seconds after being off all night. That is so important. Who wants to wait forever for the coffee maker to warm up before use. I like to wake up in the morning and get the coffee within minutes of my feet hitting the floor.

Touchcoffeewatertank2. I absolutely love the water tank holder. It comes OFF of the rest of the unit. It’s easy to fill and it’s super easy to dump and clean. You do not have “run through” the water you do not use. You can just dump and clean and add fresh water whenever you choose to. This is such an incredible feature. I’m not sure I can ever switch to another brand after seeing this dynamic feature. Its removable 90-ounce water tank has a greater capacity and is shorter in height than its counterparts, meaning you will be refilling less often, and it will be less awkward when you do.

touchcoffeeLA3. The coffee is hot and delicious! The flavor is rich when choosing any of the size choices. The hot water has more contact with the coffee grounds, which ensures that all of the coffee flavor is extracted. Other machines take much longer to warm up and then shoot water through the coffee grounds too quickly, so you end up throwing away untapped flavor with the used capsule. Even with a slower, more deliberate brew, when factoring in the warm-up time, the Touch still turns out a cup of joe in a fraction of the time. The taste of the coffee can definitely rival the pay coffee chains. I would know- I brew at home and I buy outside. I’m a three-four cup a day coffeegal.

touchcoffeetouch4.  Touch’s single serve cups are larger than traditional K-Cups, allowing more coffee grounds. More coffee means bigger, bolder flavor. I love how the Touch Brewer is compatible with Portion Packs, including K-Cup packs, XBold Cup and XLarge Cup. Did I mention there are EIGHT  Cup Size choices? You can choose 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 ,16 18 and 26 ounce cups to brew. There is also a carafe 26oz pot & Refill Jumbo Cup. I call that a win! The Touch Brewer also comes with an extra cup that you can fill with your own ground coffee. That is a perk for anyone like me that runs out of K-cups all the time. 

5. The Touch Brewer is simple and looks great. It will look nice in your kitchen or office. It’s sleek and fits great on the counter. I was really not expecting to love the Touch Brewer as much I do. I thought I would just try it and then box it, but it is taking up permanent residence on our counter and getting put to the test a few times daily.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Review: This Gaming Family Loves It!

Disney Infinity 3.0 Review: This Gaming Family Loves It!


Our family has been waiting forever for Disney Infinity 3.0, okay well it feels like forever. All I can say is that we have been counting down the days until we could play that game in our own living room. We tried it out a couple of times along the way and loved it at first sight. Being a gaming family is already fun, but being a Disney gamer family is just a magical experience for everyone. When our Disney Infinity 3.0 box of awesome arrived our family just about hit the roof!

Disney Infinity 3.0_20150902180246

Disney Infinity 3.0 brings the complete Star Wars experience to your living room. The game offers players the opportunity to play as all of their favorite characters from the classic movies, along with television shows such as Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Star Wars Rebels. Another amazing thing about Disney Infinity 3.0 is the Toy Box mode, where your imagination can run wild, and you can bring all of your Disney fantasies to life. My children loved getting the chance to have characters like Yoda and Mulan race around a track that they created in the Toy Box. There a re lots of things to do in this sandbox environment, like building racetracks, arenas, scenic landscapes, or recreating some of your favorite Disney attractions! On top of the Toy Box Mode,  Disney Infinity 3.0 also includes the outstanding Twilight of the Republic set, which takes place in the time period of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the prequel trilogy.

Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic is a great set that is perfect for all Star Wars fans. It features a cast of familiar faces, and some of the most threatening enemies in the galaxy. Throughout the campaign, you will encounter foes such as General Grievous, Cad Bane, and Darth Maul. In Disney Infinity 3.0, the combat system has also been reworked, giving the lightsaber combat a realistic, fast, and fun feel. The Twilight of the Republic set tells an interesting tale, and has a lot of different variations in gameplay throughout the campaign. In some levels, players will find themselves engaged in on-foot combat with Battle Droids and other enemies from the Star Wars universe, while in other levels players may be battling enemy ships in space. The Twilight of the Republic set is fantastic, and is the Clone Wars adventure many have waited for!

Disney Infinity 3.0_20150902151156

 Another thing that makes Disney Infinity 3.0 shine is the new Toy Box Takeover mode.  Toy Box Takeover is a Toy Box Game. It is similar to Disney Infinity 2.0‘s Escape from the Kyln and Brave: Forest Siege. Toy Box Takeover pits your full roster of Disney Infinitycharacters against Syndrome and other iconic villains, as you travel across many different environments facing many challenges. The game is a lot of fun, and is a great way to level up your Toy Box characters.

Disney Infinity 3.0_20150903175213

 Disney Infinity 3.0 is an all-around incredible game for Disney and Star Wars fans! The Toy Box is a place players can become lost in for hours while creating their next Disney masterpiece, the  Twilight of the Republic set is superb, and the new  Toy Box Takeover is a great addition to the game. My children and I love everything about the title, and it has become one of our favorite games to play together! https://infinity.disney.com/

Sofia The First: The Secret Library Welcomes Merida @DisneyChannel

Sofia The First: The Secret Library Welcomes Merida

SOFIA THE FIRST - "The Secret Library" - Sofia unlocks a secret world and becomes Storykeeper of magical bookish ÒSofia The First: The Secret Library,Ó the first episode of a four-part story arc, debuting Monday, October 12 on Disney Channel and Disney Junior. (Disney Junior) PRINCESS MERIDA, PRINCESS SOFIA

In our house we love Disney. Disney Channel and Disney Junior are always on a tv somewhere. One of Emily’s favorite characters is Merida from Disney Pixar’s Brave. So we were both super excited to hear that on Monday, October 12, Merida  will make an appearance on “Sofia the First: The Secret Library,” the first episode of a four-part story arc where Sofia becomes storykeeper of magical books without endings and now, must pursue adventures that will finish the narratives.  Please see attached for the full press release and image. How much fun does this sound like? We will definitely be tuning in. 

Being a teacher for twenty years this new opportunity for families really appealed to me. Disney Junior is hoping to inspire the youngest of kids to put pen to paper with “Dear Sofia,” a special initiative tied to the hit animated series. In today’s digital world, the art of the handwritten letter is often lost. Whether they want to know more about Sofia’s home in Enchancia, her friends, or to tell Sofia about their own adventures and send her a picture that they’ve drawn, Disney Junior is inviting kids to send a hand-written letter to Sofia and receive a response back in the mail. Please visitDisneyJunior.com/DearSofia for more information. Get out those pencils! So adorable.
