Miracles do happen, it’s A WASHABLE RUG!

It's a miracle, a WASHABLE rug!

I have an obsession with rugs.  It’s a problem. You can find me browsing through patterns and fabrics on the regular. One main reason I am always looking is because my rugs get destroyed! 

The toy room rug, stained. Bathroom rug, smashed and dirty. Nursery rug, covered in spit up.

I wipe and clean but eventually, they die. All the wiping and spot cleaning in the world couldn’t keep those rugs going for one more day.

Life Is An Adventure: a few notes about growing older


Life is…

Like Mellie mentioned a few posts back, we are working with “Cents of Style”. Right now they are working on an inspirational line of T-shirts titled “Life Is…”.

 Starting 1/20 all of their inspirational graphic t-shirts will be 50% off and FREE shipping! Use code : INSPIRE17. You won’t want to miss it! These shirts are SO awesome.  

I picked this shirt out because… Duh! It is cute!

Navy blue is totally my color!

Then Melissa wrote her post “Life Is Sweet”… It was awesome.   You should totally read it! It is so good. Then I was like, awe crap… what am I going to say about my shirt? I picked the wrong shirt. Honestly, my life right now is not super adventurous. I am not trekking the globe, jumping out of air planes, or feeding hungry sharks that’s for sure. Right now, adventure for me means changing out of my pajamas or making it out of the grocery store alive. (I’d rather swim with the sharks.)

Sassy Sauce

A great alternative to washing your kids mouth out with soap

My sister told me about this ingenious parenting hack a few years ago. She has three little girls. You can imagine, things can get pretty sassy around her house. When her daughters start whining, fighting, back talking, or cursing, she gives them a little squirt of sassy sauce! The best part of this devilishly good parenting tip is that sassy sauce is simply vinegar! Which is disgusting, but has tons of positive health benefits! The days of washing your kids mouths out with soap are long gone! Hooray!

Kidzshake for the WIN!

A Nutritional Shake that Kids Actually Like

This is not a drill…my kids actually ate something healthy! It’s an absolute miracle.  I have THE pickiest 5 year old. His diet mostly consists of toast, chicken nuggets. grilled cheese, and quesadillas. Yes, it’s awful! I can get him to try new foods, but he just hates most everything. Getting in more than one bite of something that’s somewhat healthy is a constant battle. My 2 year old on the other hand is an AMAZING eater, that girl will eat anything you put in front of her. Go figure.

Free Printable Deep Cleaning Checklist

I love January! Something about putting the Christmas tree away and vacuuming up all the pine needles and glitter makes me feel all shiny and new! A clean house is an awesome way to kick off a New Year! As a momma, I sometimes get so busy doing the same chores (dishes, laundry and cleaning up toys) that I sometimes lack the motivation to do the fun stuff. The dirty stuff, the pull out the rubber gloves and scrub stuff! I can’t wait to get out a big, fat, red, pen and scratch some of these jobs off my list! Nothing feels better than crossing stuff off your to do list, am I right?!!? Here is to a sparkly-clean New Year, and, a sparkly-clean house!
