Staying Cool Solutions with Frigidaire Gallery Cool Connect

We have been loving our new home, working on home improvement projects, and settling in over the last little bit. It’s funny when you move to a new place, you have to figure out the house, and which room is the hottest or coldest. Which one has a draft, or gets too much light.

Staying Comfortable at Home with a Smart Home Air Conditioning Unit

Our master bedroom probably gets the most evening sun out of all the rooms in the house. With several windows facing west in the dead of the Utah summer heat, it gets blasted every evening just in time to wind down in our room for the night.

The master bedroom ends up being significantly hotter than the rest of the house for a lot of the day, and turning down our air for the entire rest of the house would cause our electric bill to soar.

A great solution to our problem has been our new Frigidaire Gallery® Cool Connect Air Conditioner. It is a small Air Conditioning unit you can easily install into any room! The best part is that you can control it through an app on your mobile devices. You can schedule different temperatures at different times, which has really helped with those key times the sun heats up our room, so we can be nice and comfortable, especially when we are ready to go to bed at night. And, for those especially hot Utah summer nights, it is nice to be able to turn the fan up or turn down the temperature from bed without having to get up! I also really like the sleek white design, as you all know design is always important to me!

It has been nice to be able to keep our room as cool as the rest of our house, saving money by not having to blast the air in the rest of the house too. We have been enjoying spending time in there hanging out, resting, and reading together feeling comfortable instead of too hot!

Mothers Day Wishes

  • Personalized Mother’s Day Greeting Cards  I loved creating a photo card for my mom for Mother’s Day!  I chose the Flower Photo Card from Minted by Atlethea and Ruth.  It was super easy to customize, and add my personal photos, and add my own personal Mother’s Day wishes and more custom photos on the inside of the card. And, the best part is, it was only $5.99!

  • Give the Give of Art– Beautiful artwork is always a great gift idea for the Mother’s in your life.  Surround her with beautiful art work or custom photo gifts that celebrate special moments are something to celebrate and frame to enjoy each and every day.  I loved this Color Gloss Art Print by Kelli Hall.  It’s the perfect feminine piece that comes professionally framed and ready for gifting to that special lady.

  • Wrap it up special.  Packaging is always the first impression.  If you want to make the mother in your life feel extra special, be sure to take a few minutes to wrap your gift with care.  I love the beautiful custom wrapping paper.  For the special ladies in my life, I chose the simple snaptshot floral wrapping paper by Alethea and Ruth, coincidentally the same designer as the custom card I chose.
