This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Wet Ones® hand wipes. The opinions and text are all mine. Hidden Valley Park is our favorite park to go to relax, play, and enjoy a great afternoon. My kids and I love it. We try to visit once if not twice a week.
When I go out of town without my kids I like to pack their bags efficiently. This is so that those watching them know exactly what is what and where things are without having to dig. I’ve found packing in the following way really helps those who are watching my kids to have a stress-free experience. Further,
When I was a little girl my grandparents brought our family back a large sheepskin rug from their religious mission to Australia. Since then, I have had a love for the genuine fur. My siblings and I would lay on the rug as we watched TV. We’d put a blanket on top and sleep on it. We’d roll each
My mom has always told me that I’m a great cleaner, which is weird because I do not enjoy it. I love blasting music and getting a slight work out in and I like the end result, but I dread cleaning. I feel like it is the most monotonous task of my life—not to be overly dramatic

Everyone loves a nice looking clean, fresh smelling car. But not everyone can afford detailing their vehicle every 2-3 months. Detailing costs anywhere between $100-$1,000+ depending on the options you get. Detailing your own vehicle can not only be a great way to save and ensure a job well done, it can also be
Laundry is more enjoyable for me than many other tasks. That said, I do sometimes get frustrated at how quickly it piles up and how it never seems to end. Then I remember that for centuries before my time people had to hand wash laundry. When I remember this, my slight frustration turns to gratitude. We are very

Here are a few tips. 1. Rinse dishes immediately after use. When you are cooking, baking, etc. rinsing out
As a busy mom of two and blogger I’m always using my iPhone and iPad to take video and images of our family, my activities, and food. I love how easy iPads and iPhones are to take the perfect photograph or capture an awesome video. If you were alive or remember the day of cassette
My daughter has been teething like nobody’s business! It is so bad, slobber even goes through her bibs. Non-stop slobber + staining formula is a recipe for horrendous looking neck-stained-onesies. She just grew into size 6 onesies (of which I have about 15). So when they all turned out looking like this picture I wasn’t

Recently, I tried an experiment of a DIY nontoxic toilet bowl cleaner I had seen used on T.V. I wasn’t sure really how well it would clean the toilet. So I tried it twice. One with fairly clean toilet, the other with a dirty toilet. I was shocked at how fast and easy it was to
Most of my readers know that I try to be efficient. I’m not one of those women who just LOVES to clean. I do love a clean house and once I get going I feel great that I’m doing it, but if I can take less time cleaning the same space, I’m all for it.
I’m a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants type of girl. I really love spontaneity. As a result, I’ve thought routines weren’t/aren’t for me. Recently, I’ve come to realize that as spontaneous as I love to be, I’ve been using a morning and evening routine for a long time. I also make use of a To-Do list and a calendar. So although I like to do different
