Ben's Outlet Review & Giveaway

I know I spend a lot of time on my computer between blogging and just socializing on facebook. I love to do both especially since it is one way for me to keep in touch with family and friends that are out of state. One thing that I didn't own was a web cam. Though my hubby thinks he needs to own every type of electronic that is out there we had never invested in a web cam...surprising i That's why I was super excited when Ben's Outlet sent me one to review.

As of right now it's only use has been to entertain Jake and the boys. They are always using it to be silly and do pictures. Little do Bubba and Pumpkin know that it will be their main source to see their Grandma here pretty soon. My mom had lived in Florida for over 18 years and moved back to Ohio after I had Pumpkin. Well 4 years of snow and complaining a ton she has decided to go back to Florida in the winter and then come back to Ohio in late spring. Though she will be flying back for Christmas and Sweet Pea's birthday she will not be here all the time like the boys are use too. But atleast now we can use the web cam for them to see her and talk with her much easier then running up the phone bill.

I am also looking forward to using the web cam for upcoming product reviews. I am thinking about maybe doing some cooking demostrations using the camera. One thing I love to do is cook and bake so why not share my love with you guys as well along with tricks and tips...

So what is the cool new web cam that I am talking about??

  1. I would love to have this webcam! My kids broke my other one.. so I need a new one. :)

  2. I would love this camera! Hello Skype and UStream!

  3. This would be handy when Corey has to go on business trips so he can see Corbin since he usually is gone for 2 or more weeks at a time.

  4. My sister is due with twins next month (keeping fingers crossed she makes it that long!) and this would be an awesome way for us to watch our nieces grow since babies grow so fast! We get up there to see her at least once a year but I don't want to miss out on anything! These are our first nieces from my side of the family!

  5. I follow you via gfc and would love to have this camera for my 13 year old as a Christmas gift! He does tutorials online and has a blog he would like to have a camera for!
