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. I live in a really beautiful rural area on an old family farm with acres of pasture, woods, and a creek running through the property. When the mosquitoes come out to play, they often become so unbearable they chase us back indoors in the evenings. We work hard to keep the little pests from ruining our fun. On a typical Summer evening you will usually find us surrounded by citronella candles and … [Read more...]

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...]

Promote Logic and Problem Solving with Back Spin from ThinkFun

ThinkFun provided me with product to test in the hopes I would share with my readers. All opinions are my own. Ellie has been asking for some "just the two of us time" lately. She understands when we're at home most days we can't leave her little sister out of our activities. So, I have been trying my best to find some activities we can do together in the few moments we do have "alone". Ellie's favorite thing to do with me right now? Board games! We had a pretty busy weekend, and Aubrey must have decided she needed a little bit of extra catch up sleep today because she took a nap for the … [Read more...]

The Stain Fighting Test with Purex plus Clorox2 #PurexPlusClorox2 #SocialInsiders

I received a free sample bottle of #PurexPlusClorox2 from #SocialInsiders. I have high expectations when it comes to products that are supposed to clean the clothes we wear everyday, but at the same time I want a stain fighting detergent that is a smart value, too. Add my sensitive skin into the mix, and there are very few budget friendly detergents out there that work for me. Purex has been my go to detergent over the years because no matter what version I use I haven't had any issues with skin irritations, and the Purex detergent gets the job done. In our house, the stains are huge. … [Read more...]
