#ClothWipesChallenge Day #8

We are on week two of the cloth wipes challenge! It's so much easier than I thought it would be. We finally had an outing and I made sure to take some baby wash cloths and a (reusable) bottle of water in case I needed to clean LA's face, which we almost always have to do. I previously used disposable wipes for this but not anymore! I also finally changed a diaper while out and about and it's actually easier to use cloth wipes when out and about! … [Read more...]

Safer Brand Organic Garden/Lawn Care Products Review and GIVEAWAY!

I have been wanting to start a garden for a very long time. There is just something comforting in knowing that the foods you are eating are coming straight from your backyard and you know for sure there aren't any pesticides on them. One big concern that I have about gardening is bugs and how to keep them off of the crops. This has actually been a fear of mine because the more I think about it, the more it grosses me out. I came across Safer … [Read more...]

Recycling Day 6/18/11

The city we live in charges too much money to pick up recycling curbside so we decide to take it in ourselves for free. Last Saturday was our recycle day (yes, I forgot to post this last week! LOL) and I took a picture after we packed up the car. The crate on the far right in front is baby food we donated to a local shelter for women and children and dropped it off on the way, but the rest is what we recycled! I … [Read more...]

#ClothWipesChallenge Day # 3

I am loving using cloth wipes! It has gone surprisingly well for us. I was worried about some things, however, it's all working out. So far anyway....still haven't used them out and about! Yesterday I didn't use them much, however, it's because I only changed one diaper. My darling husband has been such a great help lately and he just happened to change all diapers when we were home other than the one at bedtime. I did use cloth wipes when I … [Read more...]

#ClothWipesChallenge Day #1

I thought it was funny last week when I posted about my first time using cloth wipes and how I felt like I had to spray lots of wipes solution on the wipe and it still felt dry. Well, the funny part was that all of you (my wonderful readers) said to spray the solution right on baby's bum. LOL  I think I was the only one who didn't know that and it didn't even cross my mind to do it like that! HAHA!!! Ok, so now that I spray the solution right on … [Read more...]

PumpEase Organic Review and GIVEAWAY!

Some of you know that I work a full time job outside of being a wife, a mommy and a blogger.

Summer Fluffin’ Day 13 – Rockin Green Review and GIVEAWAY!

One of the things that scared terrified me the most when I was making the decision on whether or not to cloth diaper LA was the laundry. At first, I was disgusted by the thought of laundering dirty diapers. That wasn't all though, I also read that you should use a special detergent for cloth diapers. Without realizing it wasn't that big of a deal, I thought, "are you serious?" The more and more I researched this the more one company kept coming … [Read more...]
