Dyson Cinetic DC77 Review

I was disgusted. Mortified. I've been doing it wrong for oh-so long. The first time I used the Dyson Cinetic DC77 marked an new beginning for me.  I just couldn't believe the amount of absolute filth that came out of my dining room area rug.  Sure...I could see some surface dust and hair before I started.  And I knew there would be some dirt that you couldn't see.  But I never, ever, expected to see this: That may be a bit hard to … [Read more...]

Update! Purchase an Old El Paso Dinner Kit & get a Coupon for a FREE Bag of Touch of Philadelphia Shredded Cheese

  Taco Tuesday is a meal my family enjoys more often then Tuesdays that roll around.  It's fast, it's delicious and EVERYBODY cleans their plate.  Barely a day goes by that someone doesn't ask for tacos for dinner. It's usually my oldest... and he's game for just about anything as long as it's stuffed inside a taco shell.  My picky eater even cheers on taco night, it's one dinner I know I won't hear complaints over. Right now, when … [Read more...]

A Touch of Spring & New Pillow Cases

This has been the whitest winter in a long time.  Just last week we were on the receiving end over 100cm of snow...again.  My back yard houses over 4 feet of snow...throughout the entire yard...with drifts well over 5 or 6 feet. It will be May before we see the grass, let alone a tulip or daffodil. So, I'm bringing spring inside. I figure right now is the perfect time to get my spring cleaning complete.  That way, when the weather does finally … [Read more...]

But as mom...we try.  We worry about what's for dinner for near 60 minutes each and every day!  That doesn't even include prep and cooking time...that's … [Read more...]

Summer is the time for being on the go 24/7.  Going for here to there, this place to that, without a care in the world.  Enjoying the fact that we don't have to wear layer after layer to keep warm, or turn up the heat.  It is the time of year when life gets a little bit easier.

Keep Germs At Bay This Summer with Lysol No-Touch Antibacterial Soap System

My kids will touch anything. Case and point.  We spent this evening at my son’s Spring Fling, there was lots of fun food and candy floating around, and lots of games for the kids to play.  New to the event this year was a Reptile Show.  We entered the show and my youngest locked eyes with a great big snake, ran over to it before I could get a hold of him and put his hands right on it.  Not even a flinch of fear (which kind of scares me).  … [Read more...]

Teach A Kid To Grow – Simple Container Gardening with Kids

My boys love to eat.  I think it's a natural trait of the younger male of our species...they would eat continuously if not threatened at every pull of the fridge door.  Sure they love their snacks, their processed foods and bags of chips, but my boys will choose fruits and some veggies over prepackaged foods any day!  On any given day my youngest will choose berries and cucumbers, and my oldest berries and string beans, they like them raw and … [Read more...]

Saving Made Simple – So, How Did I Do?

It was easier than I thought. Being in control of your money is just a matter of asserting yourself...telling yourself this is the way it is now, and there is no giving in.  I am now in control - complete control. It was a combination of smart shopping, smart planning, and digging that got me to this point and I will forever be grateful to the P&G team for putting this challenge in front  of me, and to Gail Vaz Oxlade for putting her … [Read more...]
