Best Active Noise Canceling Headphones of 2018

By |January 7th, 2018|Featured, Posts, Reviews, Tech|

We're obsessed with headphones. We could be audiophiles, but that obsession is too expensive to maintain. We stick with gear that costs a lot less money. Since headphone jacks are beginning to disappear en masse, we decided to begin our look for the best active noise canceling headphones with Bluetooth and analog connectivity. Bluetooth isn't as good as hard-wired; with [...]

Ben Folds at The Ogden Theatre with Tall Heights in Denver, Colorado

By |September 22nd, 2017|Featured, Music, Posts|

The crowd that came to see Ben Folds at The Ogden Theatre on Tuesday night demonstrated just how much love he still shares with his fans some twenty plus years after his raw voice and violent piano smashing first hit their ear drums. During that time, he's become one of the industry's most well-respected musical mavericks that does whatever the [...]

By |January 12th, 2017|Posts, Reviews|

If you search on Amazon for a baby swing, you will find more than 41,000 results. There are so many to see! How do you even start to find the best baby swing? My go-to criterion is always finding something with dual purpose. If I can buy something that accomplishes more than one goal, then I think I'm really getting my [...]

Best Baby Floor Seat for Children Under 25 Pounds

By |August 21st, 2016|Posts, Reviews|

When we started having babies, I knew we would need some essential items. We looked for a floor mat, Jumperoo, and floor seat. We've already covered the floor mat and Jumperoo here on eciov, so now it's time to talk about the best baby floor seat. Bumbo was a household name -- everyone seemed to have one -- but one of [...]

Guster at Paramount Theatre with Vetiver – 9 out of 10 High

By |February 9th, 2016|Music, Posts|

Denver turned out in great numbers for the Guster at Paramount Theatre show Saturday, February 6, 2016. By the time Guster started playing, it was a completely packed house. So packed that we even lost our original seats. The music was too chill for me to care. It was a night of epic musicianship and stoners (we'll talk about that more [...]

Best Kids Play Mat – Tadpoles ABC Floor Mats

By |January 21st, 2016|Posts, Reviews|

Life was so easy when my son was in the “potted plant” stage. He was happy to sit on a blanket and play with the toys that he could reach. If he couldn’t reach a toy, he would just play with his toes. I didn’t have to worry about him venturing off somewhere if I needed a few seconds to [...]

After reading her post, and receiving a little extra encouragement from a great friend, I decided to write a companion post that emphasizes the [...]

10 Good Things about Being Stuck at the Hospital

By |January 20th, 2016|Posts|

On the morning of January 2, 2016, I went to the hospital. I was 33 weeks pregnant and had some significant bleeding. The doctors determined I have a placental abruption, which means at least part of my placenta is beginning to detach. I didn’t realize the consequences of this at first, so I was hoping to be back home with [...]

Favorite Toddler Car Toy – VTech Car Carrier

By |January 7th, 2016|Posts, Reviews|

Christmas has already come and gone, and a new year has arrived. We spent a quiet Christmas at home this year, and our son got to “open” his presents all day long. Since he’s 13 months old, he still didn’t quite get the excitement of presents. By the last gift, he finally tore the paper on his own and actually [...]

The Road to Woodstock: A Makeshift City that Changed History

By |December 17th, 2015|Posts, Reviews|

“Woodstock is the biggest mass of people ever gathered together for anything other than war.” Sometimes an event alters the course of history and starts as just that - a humble festival and nothing more. No one saw it coming. It just happened. As a result, the world will never be the same. Though I am an avid music fan, I [...]

Best Baby Bottle Drying Rack for Most People

By |November 23rd, 2015|Posts, Reviews|

Baby bottles are a necessity for almost any family with an infant. Whether you’re a full-time bottle user or only need them every once in a while, you’ll want a place to wash and dry bottles, cups, pumping parts, etc. We don’t have a lot of counter space, so I knew we would need something that was compact. The ones [...]

I'm hoping you won't mind us sharing our epic Spotify Christmas playlist here on the site. If you don't like Christmas music, or Christmas in general, please ignore this post and come back [...]

Best Baby Jumper for Children Under 25 Pounds

By |October 30th, 2015|Posts, Reviews|

Once my son was about four months old, he wanted to stand up all the time. Since my husband and I run a business from home, we didn’t have the ability to hold him up all day -- nor did we think that would be healthy for his development. That meant it was time for us to find the best [...]

Amy Poehler’s Yes Please – Come for Laughs, Stay for Wisdom

By |October 23rd, 2015|Posts, Reviews|

"Here’s the thing. Your career won’t take care of you. It won’t call you back or introduce you to its parents. Your career will openly flirt with other people while you are around. It will forget your birthday and wreck your car. Your career will blow you off if you call it too much. It’s never going to leave its [...]

Owl City at The Gothic Theatre with Rozzi Crane

By |October 20th, 2015|Music, Posts|

Ryan Anderson at Foundations Music was kind enough to set us up with a photo pass to see Owl City at The Gothic Theatre with Rozzi Crane on Monday, October 19. As with all our concert reviews, we take photos, talk about the show, and promote the artists. That is, of course, if they're cool. Unfortunately, we sometimes pass on coverage [...]

Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects – First Book Precision

By |October 20th, 2015|Posts, Reviews|

Before we dive into my review of Gillian Flynn's Sharp Objects, let's look at the importance of the importance of the debut novel. "We all know each other’s secrets. And we all use them.” Debut novels. There's something special about them, isn't there? Granted, we've all read our fair share of first book flops. However, the debut novel often provides a unique view [...]
