Tough Stains Gotcha Down?!

This post is for all my laundry lovers out there! That’s probably no one by choice, but all of you because for obvious reasons—we all wear clothes (and hopefully clean them periodically) I am definitely not a guru in terms of what are the best, safest or cheapest laundry products out there, but I am an expert in washing clothes with LOTS O STAINS. Just this week for example, I’ve seen frosting, mud, food coloring, cherry juice, chalk and the lovely macaroni and … Continue Reading »

Making Better Buying Choices

A couple of years ago my good friend Carla introduced me to an idea that has changed the way I make choices and view shopping. Basically, my shopping choices matter and there is a face behind every product I own. It’s crazy when you look at the shopping industry that way. I’m not saying I’ve changed over night, but I am really trying to make an effort and pay attention to things I buy. Knowing that ethical shopping tugs on my heart, Liz told me … Continue Reading »


When You Blog About a Bath Towel

When life is wild and everyone in your family has had the stomach bug, it is quite easy to feel like you can’t think straight. So seriously, since I’m camped out over here in the “my week was a blur” tent, I’m writing about literally what is right in front of my face. Sadly, that would be the laundry. And with the extra number of loads I’ve done this week, thanks again to our little stomach situation—I have here in front of me … Continue Reading »


Are you “Fit-ish?”

While my time at home has been rich and filled with many of the faces that I adore, ya know what has been down-right awful here? My eating and exercise routine. Its been a challenge to really have a set “routine.” And with lots of fun activities planned and people to see, the girls and I are all over the place. Typically, my kids follow some sort of daily schedule—which I really believe in. But while we are home, that’s nearly impossible. We’ve … Continue Reading »


Tutorial for the “Perfect Wave”

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not the most stylish person, but I have two sisters who have an incredible sense of fashion and hair. Both are professional stylists and today I had my sister Stephanie give me a little hair makeover. Most days my hair goes up in a ponytail, but sometimes I just want a fresh new look! I wish I was home more often so she could do my hair all the time! After my sister was done with my cut … Continue Reading »


The Purge

No, I promise I’m not talking about the movie in this post. I hate scary movies! I did it. I finally purged my closets and drawers of clothes that don’t fit me. I’ve been meaning to do this for awhile now, but as I was packing for our month long visit to Ohio, I was overwhelmed by the amount of clothing I have that I don’t wear. It’s been a year since my daughter was born and I’ve realized—my body will never be … Continue Reading »

Girls Just Want To Have Fun
