What the Heck is “Clean Living” Anyway!?

What the Heck is “Clean Living” Anyway!?

If I’m being straight with you, which of course I am, I’ve gotta tell you: I had no idea what clean living really was until about a year ago.  I was doing the typical things to help me feel better about my family’s health.  More veggies, less sugar, but not really a whole lot more.  And I wasn’t really making much progress. Then I discovered the concept of clean living. I started exploring this lifestyle because honestly, reading labels every…

A Food Processor for a Family- A Review

A Food Processor for a Family- A Review

Finding a food processor up to the task of prepping food for a family of 6 is tough.  Especially when you also need it to be affordable (And by affordable, I mean cheap!).  Everything seems to be either too small (6 cups, really?) or over $100.  Or gets crappy reviews. After multiple google searches and a few hours reading reviews, I took the plunge and ordered this one (or, rather, sent my mom the link a few weeks before my…

How Whole30 Got Me Out of a Funk (and Led to New Family Photos)

How Whole30 Got Me Out of a Funk (and Led to New Family Photos)

My husband has wanted family photos for a very long time.  Honestly, I have too.  It’s been 4 years and 2 kids since our last family photo.  As a scrapbooker, a good family photo is a must.  So why has it been so long since we got a photo?  Well, mostly because I haven’t felt all that great over the last few years.  I haven’t been sick or anything.  But I haven’t slept all night through in years.  My energy…

DIY Bug Repellent- How I Made It, and How It Works

DIY Bug Repellent- How I Made It, and How It Works

Bug Repellent has always been one of those things I hated using.  When I became a mom, I hated using it on my kids.  I mean, you can taste the harsh chemicals when you spray it, right?  That stuff can’t be all that good for you.  The can of Off sat on my shelf, reserved for the rain forest/West Nile virus type of situations. The good news is that I finally got around to trying some DIY Bug Spray, and…

How To Declutter Kids Artwork Without Throwing It Away: Greeting Cards

How To Declutter Kids Artwork Without Throwing It Away: Greeting Cards

If you have kids, you probably also have kids artwork.  Piles and piles of kids artwork.  My 2-year-old can produce masterpieces unbelievably quickly.  He’s also aware anytime I try to discard any of them.  Sound familiar?  Well, I’m on a mission to use that artwork in ways other then wallpapering the fridge. This post is the first in a series of ideas for using up all that artwork.  I’m starting with my personal favorite- greeting cards. If you’re not a…

My Top 5 Board Games for Ages 7-11 (and Their Families)

My Top 5 Board Games for Ages 7-11 (and Their Families)

Somewhere around the time that my oldest reached age 7, my husband and I overdosed on Candyland.  It was a horrible experience.  The shakes, night terrors, knee-jerk reactions to anything brightly colored or gingerbread-man-shaped…  awful, I tell you.  And, we still had a 5-year-old that liked the game.  It was a scene straight from every parent’s worst board games nightmare. How did we recover?  Well, my friends, first we had a bonfire.  Just kidding.  Kind of.  I may have dreamed…

A Busy Mom’s Review of Spot Shot Carpet Cleaner

A Busy Mom’s Review of Spot Shot Carpet Cleaner

My search for a carpet cleaner that really works has been long.  And frustrating.  I have made my own, using several different recipes.  I have purchased several different brands.  Nothing. Until I found my new best friend (if friends came in aerosol cans).  Meet Spot Shot Carpet Cleaner.     Before I jump into the review, I have a confession to make.  I caused this particular stain, by spilling coffee after tripping on a toy.  Several weeks ago.   Ahem….

5 of the Best Board Games for Older Kids and Teens

This post contains affiliate links.  For more information on this, please read my disclosures. Family time is definitely a priority in our house.  One of our key family time strategies has always been board games.  They’re (nearly) free, you can play in summer or winter, and friends can be easily added to the fun when they are over. When we had toddlers, the options were obvious (Candyland, anyone?).  As the kids get older though, we’ve had to adapt, change, and…
