Kentucky Derby and HP Pavillion x360

I wrote this review while participating in a program on behalf of HP and received an HP PC, an HP printer, an Instant Ink starter kit, a Snapfish gift card and other items as part of my participation.  All opinions are strictly my own though. #sponsored #HPFamilyTIme


Hi Everyone!  I finally back from my trip to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby.  I had five completely packed, fun-filled days celebrating my sweet friend’s 40th birthday. We completely immersed ourself in the spirit of Kentucky! It is such a beautiful state.  On top of two beautiful days at the Churchill Downs Race Track, we also visited the Louisville Slugger Factory, a breeding farm, and bourbon distillery.

While it was so amazing to get away, leaving four kids and a business is by no means easy.  I have often avoided trips because so much work went into going away.  It’s hard to juggle my blogging schedule and four busy kids.  This trip was different though thanks to my new HP Pavilion x360!  This sweet little laptop has changed everything for me.   With the HP Pavilion x360, it was so easy to stay connect to my family, be productive with my business and have fun all on the go. Don’t you love the color?


I was able to use the HP Pavilion x360 to do a little blogging, manage my Etsy orders, upload and email photos to Snapfish for my family and friend to see.   I loved being able to send daily schedules for my kiddos to my mom who was babysitting.  That alone relieved so much stress.   With the easy to use Netflix app, I was even able to download some of my favorite TV shows to watch on the airplane.  Makes me want to go away more often!



We even were able to keep track of all the Derby news.

    Looks like it was a super fun trip! I feel the same way. Trips are super fun but as a mom they are a lot of work if you aren’t taking your kids. Totally worth it though! And super cute laptop!

    I do not live far from Louisville, it such a fun city. Yet, I have never been to the Derby! I am in love with that little Pavillion! How great to be able to keep up with all you do while you are on the go! And the best part is uploading your gorgeous pics!

    How beautiful and fun! It looks like you had a fabulous time. I’m also super jealous of your snazzy laptop.. it’s cute!

    We love Louisville! We’re only about an hour and a half north (here in Cincinnati, Ohio) and have visited several times. Sounds like a fabulous trip. We’ve toured Churchill Downs, but I’d love to actually attend the Derby one day.

    Such a fun opportunity! I love all those creative hats! You’ve also reminded me that I’m overdue for a laptop upgrade!

    Oh, that looks like so much fun!! Someday, I’d love to go to the Kentucky Derby! I can’t even imagine the eye candy! I just took a trip for a week and left my computer at home because I didn’t want to lug it around – this pretty little pink Pavilion number would have been ideal!!! Thanks for sharing!
