PROUD TO BE A:
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for OxiClean. I received three product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. When it comes to housekeeping there are two tasks that are literally never complete – laundry and dishes. Even when I breathe a sigh of relief from tossing the last load of clothes in the washing machine it’s just a false sense of accomplishment because at that exact moment my girls are most likely spilling something down the front of the outfit they are currently wearing. When … …..
I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Brother P-touch. I received a product samples to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating. Soon after the holidays I packed up the Christmas decorations – well everything except for my penguins and snowmen since those can stay out until winter is over. It was so easy to put everything in its correct storage bin since I had labeled them with my Brother P-touch Easy Handheld Label Maker. But the toys… oh my goodness it looked like Toys R Us had exploded … …..
My house is tiny. There’s no way around it. And with 5 people in it, there’s sometimes no way to get through it either, hehe! That’s why I’m always looking for great storage solutions to keep things (somewhat) organized. When we were approached by Way Basics, I knew right away how perfect their furniture pieces would be for our home. Way Basics is a company dedicated to creating furniture pieces that are sustainable, eco-friendly, and simply creative. They have created a brand new type of recycled material, called zBoard, which they make all of their products from. Made from 99% … …..
I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Brother P-touch. I received a product samples to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating. About a month ago I shared how excited I was to be chosen to be a Brother P-touch Ambassador. Ever since then I have had so much fun labeling practically everything in our home. Perhaps I’ve gone a little label crazy. I even had to stop by OfficeMax to get some more tape – there were so many choices! So far my biggest project was organizing Alleigh … …..
I love decorating for the holidays inside and outside our home. I have white lights everywhere. Inside on our live Christmas tree, wrapped in garland on the mantle, on the girls pre-lit artificial tree, and on a few other holiday decorations. Outside they cover our bushes in the front yard plus icicle lights on the front peak of our house. But every year while decorating it seems I run in to at least one or more strands that have sections of lights that aren’t working. It was always such a pain in the rear to figure out what was causing … …..
One of my favorite things about Christmas time is all of our traditions both old and new. Dustin and I take our girls to pick out a live Christmas tree just like our parents did with us each year growing up. We use the same Christmas countdown calendar that I used growing up – an awesome garage sale score. This year we started a 24 days of books count down where the girls get to open a wrapped book each night and then we read it before bed. And every single year since Dustin and I have been married we … …..
I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Brother P-touch. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating. I love being organized. Having a place for everything and everything in it’s place helps to keep me on track and focused. When my house isn’t cluttered my brain isn’t cluttered either. I’ve found that one of the best way to keep things organized is to make labels – lots of labels. Up until this point I did the paper, marker, and tape method. It did the … …..
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Fellowes. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. As a stay at home mom to three little ones who also runs this blog I need to stay organized or I would simply lose my mind. One of the things that drives me absolutely crazy is clutter – especially paper clutter. And it arrives every single day from the mail man. For the longest time these papers piled up in what my husband refers to as … …..
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Duracell. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. Have you ever stopped to think about just how many items in your home require batteries? It’s crazy. Remote controls, children’s toys, video game controllers, smoke alarms, digital cameras, baby gear, and lots more. I remember going through tons of batteries when Kaelyn was a baby because she loved her swing so much. And it seems that nearly every day my girls are bringing another toy to me … …..
