      Things to do in Cincinnati this Mother's Day

      Posted by Allison on May 10, 2019 2:09:13 PM

      Mother’s Day is a day specifically designed to celebrate our mothers. It’s a day to let them know how much we care and appreciate everything they do for us. Truthfully, everyday should be a day where we cherish our moms, grandmas, sisters, and important women in our lives. Every mother deserves acknowledgement for all of the hard work, love, and support she has put into being our mom. But, if you aren’t quite sure how to show your mom appreciate, start by planning a day dedicated exactly for her.

      5 Must-Haves for Your Perfect Derby Day

      Posted by Brianna on May 2, 2019 3:30:00 PM

      The most exciting two minutes in sports takes place this Saturday, May 5th, as the 145th Annual Kentucky Derby kicks off the Triple Crown. The derby will be followed by the Preakness Stakes on Saturday May 18th, and the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 8th.

      The Kentucky Derby, which takes place at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, is always a very big deal. The race, a Stake I race, draws incredible and unmatched betting crowds. The horses that participate in the race are trained specifically for intense racing, and for this short 1.25-mile track.

      The race is always on the first Saturday of May, the winning horse and jockey are always draped with a blanket of roses, and crowds still pour in wearing their fancy clothes and unique hats, and of course, sipping on Mint Juleps.

      Whether you are a horse-racing fan or just in for a day of fun, here are 5 must-haves to throw a stellar Derby Party:

      Family's Guide to Maximizing Your TV Package

      Posted by Allison on May 2, 2019 10:50:00 AM

      Every family has their own unique TV tradition. For my family, we would record all of our shows we wanted to watch (like American Idol back in the mid 2000’s) and we would wait until all of our homework was finished and dinner was cleaned up before starting the show. After we were ready for bed, we would spend time on the couch, snuggled up in blankets, catching up on our favorite shows. My dad would always be so excited that we could fast forward through all of the commercials to get to the good parts. That tradition still holds true today. Every Sunday, my family gets together for dinner and afterwards, we pick the best movie to watch On Demand. Watching TV with your family is one of the best feelings, especially when you get into the groove of a comfortable routine.

      It’s important to get the most out of your TV Package so your family can enjoy watching TV together, whether it be at home or on-the-go. Check out this list of awesome features that will help you maximize your family TV time.
