Kidecals Labels: Save now!

I previously did a review of Kidecals Labels, and we still use these labels today. We use them for school supplies, clothing (mostly jackets and sweaters that can get lost at school), water bottles – you name it! You can put these things in the dishwasher, washing machine and dryer and they will LAST and LAST and LAST! When you’ve got kids who forget things all of the time, these are perfect. The original set we purchased just had our last name on them with my telephone number, but for the next … [Read more...]

My Vaseline Alternative now comes in a squeeze tube @waxelene


Yay! I was so excited to get this email. I use Waxelene every evening in the winter. I put it on before I climb in the bed. My feet never felt so good. And in the warmer months I use it after I get out of the shower, and before I put on warm weather shoes. This is my favorite thing! My daughters use it for their “booboos” (which aren’t really booboos, hence the quotes), and we all use it for chapped lips. I also slather it on my neck when I think about it.

I’ve been following the Shaklee 180™ Plan where I have a meal replacement shake for breakfast, another one for lunch (or a meal replacement bar), a snack or two, and a sensible dinner. I’ve been walking on the treadmill for about 60 minutes 2 or 3 days each week, too. I started the Shaklee 180™ Turnaround™ Kit on March 1st. The Shaklee 180™ Program I’ve had a few challenges, though. My plan was to start this March 1st. On the last day of February, a Thursday, I … [Read more...]

How to Choose a Quality Car Seat for Your Toddler

In January alone, my brother and his wife had a baby, my girlfriend had her 3rd daughter, and my neighbor had a son. Although my child-bearing days are over (unless I find a husband tomorrow, we get married next month, and I get pregnant the month after that LOL), I still want to adopt a younger child, and my daughters are on board with the idea. Likely, we won’t provide a forever home for a newborn, but will become a family to a toddler-aged child. One of the things I’ll have to concern … [Read more...]
