Whether it’s a cosy hot tub, a full-sized pool or something in between, having a private place to take a dip at home is one of life’s greatest luxuries. There is little that compares to shrugging off the day’s troubles with a few relaxing laps or a good book and the gentle massage of…

REcycling is Good. PREcycling is Better!

This blog is all about my family and me and our journey to be green.  In other words, we’re trying to be healthier, smarter and care for the planet that we have so graciously been gifted.  I consider us stewards that, at the very least, should make smarter choices and clean up our own messes.No, I don’t go around hugging trees (tree trunks are “scratchy” and don’t really smell that great), but I do think it’s important that we do our part.  And I assure you, I’m not a finger pointing, Judgey…See More

But I Wanted Wiener Wraps and Tator Tots!!

Posted on April 16, 2013 at 2:01pm 0 Comments

My initiation into the mom scene was a bit different than most.  It wasn’t until after I had spent a few years helping to raise my step-kids that my son was born.  I wasn’t going to be able to bond with these kids while changing diapers or teaching them their ABC’s or snuggling with them at bedtime.  This was…


The Cost of Permanent Press

Posted on April 16, 2013 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

Posted on April 9, 2013 at 7:04pm 0 Comments

If you’re like me, when kids came into your world you wanted everything in your home to be as clean as possible.  You probably went to great lengths to disinfect everything because you wanted your child to live in the cleanest environment.  And you may have even safely assumed that as long as the cleaning supplies you were using weren’t bothering you, they weren’t bothering your baby either.  Sadly, that’s not true.
