That Time I Accidentally Poisoned My Husband.

So I have an obsession with coconut oil. That includes both food and beauty routines. I've been known to just blurt out "Coconut oil!" halfway through conversations just to get my foot in the door and spark conversation. Coconut oil all the things! Needless to say I have coconut oil jars laying about serving various functions throughout my house. (Tropical Traditions jars are just too fabulous.) I have to admit that the placement of this one particular jar might be a bit inconvenient: I have a jar of pure┬ácoconut oil in my "oil" cabinet (behind the salt and pepper), but right next to it is an old jar that is half full of my old wipe … [Read more...]

Back to Chores – It Gets Easier

As the baby grows older (and boy is he growing fast!) and mama heals up to a variation of normal, everything is settling down and we're slowly getting acquainted with a routine of sorts. I'm learning what times are good to pop him in a carrier and attempt to get some chores taken care of. I'm also learning to utilize other helpful gadgets to make our lives easier so I can spend as much time as possible loving and bonding with the new baby. For example, I'm a fan of my SinkMagic Portable Dish Water Diverter. As you can see we only have one sink. We generally just wash the dishes as they come, or we run the water constantly to wash and rinse … [Read more...]

The Green Cleaning Coach Helps Us to Stay Green!

I don't generally buy paper products or harsh chemicals unless I have something totally messy to deal with. Hutch actually told me recently that I'm the most eco-concious person he's ever known in real life. I was shocked, honestly, because I'm not a supper hippie tree-hugger by any means. I just try to be aware and minimize my footprint on the Earth. It seems natural to want to do so, and I find it a tad insulting when people think me washing my napkins is "strange." The Green Cleaning Coach sent me a little kit to help my efforts to minimize waste and be gentler on the planet starting with my home. My cleaning kit included one Skoy cloth, … [Read more...]

This Nesting Mama Loves Ology

I think I'm nesting. I don't quite have the urge to do 50 million things at once, but I do have this need to start tidying things up a bit to prepare for the baby. Two o'clock in the morning seems to be my motivational time, which is unfortunate because I can't sew or vacuum at 2 am. Thankfully there's lots of quiet activities to keep me occupied, though scrubbing the shower tile isn't my idea of fun. But hey, what can you do? I was told about this awesome new product I just had to try. Ology is a new line of products exclusive to Walgreens. I actually love drug stores already, so checking out what Ology was up to proved to be no hassle at … [Read more...]
