Mommy Review Monday: Decluttering at the Speed of Life: Winning Your Never-Ending Battle with Stuff

Every year I set goals for myself at the beginning of the year.  Original, right??? One of my goals this year (and, honestly, the last probably 10 years) is to declutter.  However, we’re in the process of potentially closing on a new (to us) home.  With that, we will likely be selling the home we’reContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Decluttering at the Speed of Life: Winning Your Never-Ending Battle with Stuff”

Whoooooo are you?

Figure out who you are and then do it on purpose. – Dolly Parton Such a fantastic quote.  It is tomorrow’s quote of the day for Tuesday in my planner.  I just recently watched the popular Netflix movie, Duplin’.  It was fantastic.  I’m not going to say much more because I hate spoilers but thisContinue reading “Whoooooo are you?”

Mommy Review Monday: Dyson v8 Animal Vacuum Stick

This vacuum really sucks! Ok, ok….I’ll cut out the cheesiness for now. But really, this vacuum has been worth every penny.  It’s so great we named it:  Mike Dyson.  I know, I know….I said that I’d cut out the cheese.  I couldn’t resist though. Is there anything sexier than a man doing household chores?!? Ladies,Continue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Dyson v8 Animal Vacuum Stick”

Mommy Review Monday: Pottery Barn Fairfax Pre-K Toddler Backpack

For the girls’ birthday last year MaMa got the littles backpacks since they’d been trying to steal the bigs’ bags and backpacks for a few months.  After all, what toddler doesn’t like bags??? These Fairfax Pre-K backpacks have been FANTASTIC.  They are the perfect size for the littles and they LOVE to carry them around. Continue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Pottery Barn Fairfax Pre-K Toddler Backpack”

Mommy Review Monday: Panera Bread App

It’s been a while since I’ve written a Mommy Review Monday but was spurred into thinking of it today because this app is something I feel I should share. Since I’m on the road this week, I enjoyed a lovely meal from Panera Bread. (Half Turkey BLT and Half Green Goddess Salad). I pulled outContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Panera Bread App”

Mommy Review Monday: Full Focus Planner

I have mentioned in a few of my previous posts that I use the Full Focus Planner.  I happened upon this wonderful thing on one of the many podcasts that I listen to.  It’s been wonderful for me. Here’s what I like about it: It’s black and non-discrete.  There’s a lot of flashy journals outContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Full Focus Planner”

Mommy Review Monday: Batiste Dry Shampoo, Dark & Deep Brown

It took me a long time to break down and try dry shampoo, mostly because I always assumed it only worked for blondes. As I was getting my hospital bag ready for delivering the twins, one of the things I kept seeing on many new moms lists was dry shampoo. So I figured it wasContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Batiste Dry Shampoo, Dark & Deep Brown”

Mommy Review Monday: Member’s Mark 14 Inch Non-Stick Fry Pan

I love my Member’s Mark 14 Inch Non-Stick Fry Pan. I bought my first one about 10 years ago from Sam’s Club. In the last year or two it hasn’t been sitting evenly on my stove-top. I believe, between Garen and I, one of us probably washed it before it was completely cool, causing itContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Member’s Mark 14 Inch Non-Stick Fry Pan”

Mommy Review Monday: Ceramic “Non-stick” Instant Pot Bowl

After the first two times cooking in the Instant Pot, Garen, who usually cleans the kitchen after I cook, suggested that we look for a “non-stick” version.  Sooooo….I went to Amazon.  Where else? Here’s what we found and purchased:  Genuine Instate Pot Ceramic Non-Stick Interior Coated Inner Cooking Pot- 8 Quart. Positives: It is lightweight. Continue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Ceramic “Non-stick” Instant Pot Bowl”

Mommy Review Monday: Care.com for Finding Childcare

I have excellent babysitters/nannies that help us out.  And, with four kids and both of us traveling for work, boy, do we need it?!?  When I tell people that we have great sitters they typically ask me how I found them.  It’s hard to find good help from word-of-mouth.  If you hear about someone who’sContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Care.com for Finding Childcare”
