Let’s just be honest, y’all. Sometimes it hits mid-afternoon around here and I just NEED something to HELP ME OUT. Can I get an amen?!
Normally I’ll grab a nice ice cold Diet Coke from the fridge…which, I know…those nasty artificial sweeteners. I tell myself that I just need a little boost! And some days I grab a REAL Coke – sugar and all. Anybody with me?
Either way, sugar (real or fake) can be addicting. Bad for our bodies, for sure. But it can also be bad for your wallet! Amit from Pound Place sent me over this infographic that isn’t quite as yummy as I thought it would be. Check it out!
My normal cleaning routine took a turn for the non-routine when the twins were born. Now, with the girls an entire 6 months old (where is the time going?!), I think I may finally be getting the hang of housekeeping once more. The big lesson I’ve had to learn is: I can’t do it all at once.
Pre-kiddos, I used to be able to spend a few hours in one morning cleaning the house, and it would stay pretty clean for about a week or so. Now, I’m excited if I get one bathroom cleaned by the end of the day! HA!
But there are a few things that I’ve made sure I maintained as clean once I got them there. Since I’m prepping adult food and baby food and formula there multiple times a day, the kitchen is something that has stayed clean at our house.
So when Alyssa Winters contacted me and asked if I wanted to post a piece on keeping a kitchen fresh and clean, I was all about it! Hopefully she’s got some tips I’m not already using – I’m all for improving my techniques!
The kitchen is one of, if not THE messiest room in your entire house. This is why it is a challenge to keep it clean, since you surely don’t want to serve food that is prepared in a non-sanitized environment.

Hi, everyone! Taffy the White Doggie here!
Mommy decided to let me take over the blog for today, since she’s been pretty busy. Actually, we’ve ALL been pretty busy around the house lately. The reason? I have two new baby sisters!
Well, they’re getting kinda big now. But not too big. Seems like they’re growing fast, though. I’m starting to wonder if I’m gonna get chased here pretty soon. Yeah, probably. But for now, I’ve been trying to help where I can.
There are some things in your fridge that leave no guessing as to when they expire. Cue the cucumbers and the applesauce, right? (Those seem to be the two things that are always going bad in OUR fridge!) And then there are others that I stop, smell, wonder if I’ve smelled something rotten and start looking for the expiration date. If it’s expired, you can bet your bottom dollar that it’ll go right into the trash can!
Oh. And that’s just the FRIDGE! What about around the rest of your home? Cleaning supplies? Electronics? Beauty items?
Thankfully, the folks over at Quid Corner sent me this lovely piece to share with all of you! I think it covers the bases, don’t you?!
Y’all know I normally do a “Top 5 Posts” post at the beginning of each month, looking back at the previous month to see what was most popular around here! Well, I figured I’d stop and see what the top 5 posts were for all of 2016! Are you ready?!
