We love music! At any given time you can find one of the kids listening to music on the iPad. We listen to satellite radio through the TV all day long. And I am usually in the kitchen listening to music on the iPod while getting meals ready.

But we are not always in the house when we want to listen to music. Having 6 acres, we spend a lot of time outside. I am in the garden at least once a week and I love to have music on while I am out there working. We spend a lot of time sitting outside on the patio and we always have music playing.

The music we listen to is the soundtrack of our lives. At any given time I can give you a list of songs and tell you what memory they remind me of.

So anything that can enhance how we listen to our music, I am all about.

JBL Reflect Sport Headphones. When on the go, it doesn’t matter if it is out in the garden or out for a walk, sometimes the normal ear buds do not stay in your ears well. There is nothing worse for me than being covered in sweat and dirt and having to adjust the ear buds. Thanks to these, I don’t have to. They are comfortable but stay in my ears no matter how long I have them on. And the quality is perfect!


Sport headphones from JBL to drive you closer to your goals. The ultimate workout partner, the Reflect combines cutting-edge style with innovative features. Providing legendary sound in a workout-ready headphones design, it puts you well on your way to achieving your athletic goals. Designed to stay secure in your ears, these ergonomic, stay-put ear-buds are engineered to withstand the rigors of your most energetic workout, delivering on the soundtrack to push you to drive harder.

JBL Clip Portable Bluetooth Speaker.

There is nothing better than a Bluetooth speaker. I am in love. I can listen to music, take a phone call and go right back to listening to music without switching anything off or on. And the sound quality is amazing.


With Bluetooth technology, this JBL Clip speaker enables wireless music streaming and phone calls when paired with a compatible device. The built-in carabiner creates a ready-to-wear design, making it easy to take the speaker on the go. As the name implies, the Clip is meant to be mated to your backpack, bike, pants – pretty much any clip-able locale – with an integrated carabiner, so it can throw down a soundtrack for your travels.

We recently put our speakers to the test on a road trip. We take along a few movies and my laptop. It keeps the kids happy during long drives and these speakers were great. The built in carabiner was perfect to clip to a spot on the seat so it stayed put no matter where the road took us.

car trip

I managed to get a 4 hour stretch of driving without having to make a single stop. That is huge when you are traveling with small kids.
