Easy Online Will Making by Trust & Will

Ahhh.. Creating a will. One of the last things you ever want to do. Not only is it time consuming and a bunch of legal terms, but it is also talking about your possibly timely or untimely demise and something we really do not want to talk or think about. The fact is, it’s important. Especially if you have children.

I have been following the Dave Ramsey program for a little over a year now, and one of the things he preaches is the benefits of having a Will.

Many of us, when we think of a Will, we think of old age and how we will divvy up our belongings to our loved ones. The fact of the matter is, a Will is much more than that, and anyone over the age of 18, especially anyone with a child or children need to start thinking about their Will now. Even better, don’t just think about it, get it done.

A Will is there in case something were to happen to you to let your children go to whom you wish. Without a written, legal Will, there is a long process with the state in which probate court will need to be involved to decide the fate of where your children go. And who knows where they’ll wind up in the mean time…

There is an easy to use online program that literally makes creating a will a 10 minute thing. You can go to Trust & Will  and create a Trust, a Will, or just a document to specificity the guardians of your children should something ever happen to you and/or your spouse. You can do all 3 in one document for a discount as well.

What’s the benefits of each? They break it down simply for you below;

Once you have the document completed, you can choose to print it yourself, or to have the documents sent to you (or both). You have to get it notarized in order for it to become a legal document, so you’ll need a physical copy no matter what.

That seems to be the biggest issue for people, finding the right place or the time to get the documents officiated and notarized. Luckily, if you have a UPS store by you, you’re in luck. Simply go to their website and click services. You’ll see a notary public section where you can make an appointment. I found it extremely convenient that they have weekend appointments. All in all it should take no more than 30 minutes. And bonus? They provide the signature witnesses as well which is another annoyance to find witnesses available yourself.

I was skeptical of it only taking 10 minutes, but honestly it did. It is such a simple process and my husband and I are happy to have this crossed off of our “adulting” to-do-list.

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Review

I was so grateful to have the opportunity to be a guest on the 411 Mommas (www.the411mommas.com) and get to review this amazing vehicle!

Check out my in depth review of the car I had for a week, 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport on the411mommas.com! I absolutely loved being a #guest411momma. Head over check out their youtube channel as well for some amazing tips and fun videos!

Overall, we really loved having this SUV as part of our family for the week!

This 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport gets 27 MPG Combined – 24 MPG city/30 MPG highway. I had it for a week and drove about 300 miles city/highway and still had a half tank of gas! I was very pleased with how it balanced out when you drive on highway vs city and there is an”ECO” indicator that I am not sure what it meant, but it did flash from time to time. I assume it’s saying I am driving ECO friendly? LOL!

There is a large panoramic moon roof that my kids adored. My 2 year old especially loved looking at airplanes in the sky IMG_2523while I was driving. It was a useful built in tool to keep him occupied. This would be great in the Summer at night to turn on the heated seats, lay the front seats down, and star gaze out of the moon roof!

It has the best heated seats I have ever seen. They don’t only heat on the seat, but also the lower back area which made the ride home from work that much better!

I didn’t get a chance to use it because I’m not a big blue tooth guru, but it does come with a FUSE hands-free link system built into the 7″ HD touch screen. Also, within the same screen, you can touch a button to turn on the map or to turn on GPS.

The navigation system includes 3D Mapping and free map upgrades yearly.

A funny story about the touch screen/audio, I was a bit confused at first that there wasn’t a slot or section to put a CD. I figured maybe I’m getting old and since it is 2015, people don’t use CD’s anymore… Well, I found a little button and had to push it. To my satisfaction, the screen flipped open, and there it was, the CD slot! They sure thought of it all! There were slots there for updating MAPs and another that looked like a memory card slot – I am not too sure what it is for though.

Something cool I definitely noticed while driving home late at night from work on the highway was the auto-dimming rear view mirror.At first I actually thought I was just seeing things when I noticed bright lights behind me turning this darker greenish hue. For me, this was amazing. I would’ve never even thought something like this existed. I have contacts and my vision at night is very poor. I get halo’s around headlights that shine brightly through the mirror, and this completely fixed that issue for me. I felt very safe driving at night. The amazingly bright LED headlights helped with that too!!!

The keyless entry feature has officially spoiled me. I know it’s 2015, and I am sure a lot of cars are going this route, but wow. It made my shopping trips with my 2 year old much easier. I was able to leave my keys in my purse, and as long as the keys were near the car, I could unlock the car with a button on the door. I’d have to imagine… I say imagine because I only had 1 key for testing purposes and didn’t want to test my luck.. but I’d have to imagine that this would make it nearly impossible to lock your keys in your car. I would think that since they’re in the car, the outside button would allow you to press to unlock. If anyone can confirm this for keyless entry -please comment below!

Either way, it’s still awesome and a luxury you would never know you’re missing out on until you try it for a week! The same for starting and stopping the ignition, completely keyless!IMG_2575

It drove fantastic in the snow in the 4WD option and I am sure the all season tires had much to do with that. The fact that there is an option that is as simple as the push of a button to change from 4WD lock, to 2WD, to 4WD auto is great. On a nice summer day with no need to have 4WD, you can save even more on gas mileage by switching to 2WD but just pushing a button! How about that March snow, huh?!

IMG_2544The only thing I can say I’d improve overall on this vehicle is the trunk space. I know it is a SUV Sport model, so it is smaller and more compact, but all the luxuries of an SUV, but with having car seats always in the vehicle, the fold down trunk space would hardly be used, leaving only a small trunk. It made it hard to fit my stroller with my weekly groceries in the trunk alone.
