You all know that I love quotes. I saw this quote on this blog and thought it was worthy to repost.

Female friends are really special and I'm lucky to have a few very good ones (both in real life and virtual life).

Eco Cleaners: Baking Soda

Did you know that you can use baking soda to help clean/unclog your drains? Well, I didn't until yesterday when I stumbled on this little tip while looking for something else.

Here's the scoop!

Pour 1 cup of baking soda down the drain followed by 1 cup of hot vinegar. Try heating the vinegar in the microwave before adding it to the drain. Wait 5 minutes before flushing the drain with 2 quarts of hot water. You can repeat this process a few times if it is necessary. If this is the first time you have cleaned your drain in a long time it may be necessary to repeat the baking soda flush a couple of times.

The Happiest Place on Earth

We have returned from our wonderful family vacation. My goal this trip was to RELAX and just enjoy myself. If you know me in real life, you know that more often than not I'm a glass half-empty person. I hate that about myself, but it is true. It's one thing I would change about myself.

This trip, I concentrated on the good and let the not so good roll off my back. I'm so glad we were able to spend time together (even though Rob was sick for most of the trip).

Here are some pictures from our adventure.

This is what we do on Wednesdays.

We dust.

Then we dance.

What does your Wednesday look like?

Need A Gift Idea?

If you are in need of a gift for a 3-4 year old child, you need to get this A-SAP! I bought this Little Touch Leap Pad at a Mom-2-Mom sale last winter. It sat around in the basement for a year before it saw any use. When I pulled it out last week, it was a BIG hit. Big.

Do yourself a favor and buy it resale. Ebay has a lot of them up for sale as well as the book.

Prep Work:
Cut the tissue paper into any shape you like. I did squares, nice and easy.

It kept her busy for a good 20 minutes and she was very proud of her art when she was done.

It's official. He fits in perfectly. He's going to be a bookworm just like the rest of us. I love it.
