Last week I had the opportunity to spend time in the Philadelphia Magazine’s design house in Wynnewood. The home was stunning, priced at over 4 million it should be right? The home had a mix of traditional and modern which I actually loved. I love more of the modern farmhouse look but this newly built home with 5 beds/ 6 baths and over 7000 sq feet of living space made that design style work beautifully. The home felt cozy, like you could kick your shoes off and stay awhile.
Of course the kitchen was my favorite spot in the house.
Here are some of my other favorites including the screened in patio…yes it’s really screened it, and leads to your very own Zen Garden.
These photos only scratch the surface of this house, if you want to be really wowed the master suite is a dream. I mean really, I thought I died and went to shoe heaven. So do yourself a favor and schedule your own tour through Philly Mag. During the tour you will have an opportunity to see everything this home has to offer and maybe get some new ideas, including ways to keep your home running smoothly with home security, internet and cable through Xfinity. This actually was my favorite part of the tour, because it’s something we could improve on in our own home without breaking the bank.
Over the years we’ve went back and forth from one cable company to another for various reasons, mostly because of cost. We are at that point again of switching but this time we are looking for a company that can meet all of our need for internet, phone, mobile and home. What cable company can do all that? Xfinity can! When I spoke with the Xfinity team they totally wowed me with all the ways they could help us keep our family dialed in and safe at home and on the street. Here are 4 reasons Xfinity works for the whole family.
XFi – This is a BRAND NEW service that just launched this week, and it’s pretty darn cool. You can manage your home, WiFi network from anywhere, on any device, even your TV. I can see if my boys are online, how long they’ve be on and even pause the WiFi on their devices. Can you imagine? They don’t do their homework or chores and I see them on their phones. All I need to do is head to the app and BOOM….WiFi shut down! BONUS….if you are already a Xfinity customer it’s totally FREE!
MOBILE – Yep! XFINITY is launching in June their own mobile network. It will be America’s largest and most reliable 4G LTE network combined with the most WiFi hotspots nationwide. Just like XFi this service is also included with your IXFINITY service. It’s pretty straightforward with data options with no line access fees. You only pay for the gigabytes of data that you use and you auto connect to millions of Xfinity WiFi hotspots. This is huge for us since we have one boy that uses almost no data and one that uses a ton. If you’re unsure you want your child to have a phone Xfinity has other mobile options that are totally free that are perfect for kids.
XFINITY HOME – The home system includes 24/7 professional monitoring with fast response time and the ability to arm, disarm and control your system remotely. I can easy personalize my home by setting rules to get real-time alerts via text when activity is detected. For instance when I’m teaching and my boys get out of school early I will get notified when they walk through the door and I can see if they are alone or with friends. Now that our boys are older we allow them to stay at home from time to time without our supervision. We can now monitor them through our phone, just in case. Peace of mind is key!!
PARENT CONTROLS – Through the Xfinity App you control the amount of usage their mobile devices and internet searches. When they are home watching TV you can restrict the viewing programs, as well as certain program titles and channels. If I’ve had enough of the kids watching i Carly all I need to do is open the app and enter my code and choose that show. I also love that you can hide all together adult titles from even displaying on the screen.
Xfinity is really a parent’s dream, especially one like me. I have 2 boys heading into those teenage years and they are becoming more independent but I still like to keep a close on them regardless if they are home or away. Xfinity does that.
Now that my family can be dialed in and safe we can have a little fun too with the Amazon Tap. This portable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled speaker allows you ask for music, hear news, search for information, order a pizza, and more with the Alexa Voice Service. Discover and enjoy music, all in one place.
