5 Essential P&G Products I Buy to Avoid the Oops

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Walmart. With two young kids running around we have a lot of "Oops" moments in our home. My kids seem to make the biggest messes when I'm running low or completely out of the essential cleaning supplies. Not long ago Aubrey had a potty accident. She didn't make it to the bathroom and ended up peeing all over my bedroom floor. That's an "oops" in itself, but the bigger "oops"? That's when I realized I was out of Swiffer pads and had forgotten to put them on my shopping list. It's no fun dragging two cranky kids to the store just for mop pads. My … [Read more...]

How to Protect Your Family from Mosquitoes with Thermacell Products

Mosquitoes are a major nuisance for us during the Summer months. In the "Golden Corner" of Upstate, SC, we are surrounded by lakes, rivers, and creeks, so mosquito breeding grounds are plentiful.

How Downy Fabric Conditioner Changed My Laundry Routine #ProtectClothesYouLove

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks on behalf of @Downy and @Walmart.   A few months ago I shared my laundry routine, and I may have surprised a few readers when I announced that I dry my clothes the old fashioned way on the line. I have been dryer free for 7 months, and I'm still very happy with my decision to ditch my dryer. However, I have changed my washing routine up a bit with the addition of Downy fabric conditioner. I have never really used a fabric conditioner like Downy on my clothes before. When I was a kid my mom never used any type of fabric softener or conditioner … [Read more...]

When my Anxiety Makes Me Feel Like I’m a Bad Mom

My life over the last week has been very befitting of my blog title. I feel like I'm living in a constant brain fog that I just can't seem to break free from at the moment. I haven't been able to concentrate on much of anything lately, my anxiety has been brewing up a nasty storm inside me, and my list of things I had planned for the girls and I went straight out the window. Some days have been harder than others, but I have tried my best. When the smallest things become the biggest worries... My daughter's last day of Kindergarten was on Thursday of last week. I printed out the cute little … [Read more...]
