This article identifies the 10 areas that are the most important to keep clean in the house and why from a professional house cleaning company in Louisville called Super Cleaning.

Prepping & Cleaning Your Home For A New Puppy

***SIGH*** You guys. We got a new dog.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here on the blog yet, but about a month ago, we lost our Taffy girl.

She was SUCH a great dog. We adopted her from the SPCA, and when we got her home, we discovered she was already completely trained. She barely bothered the cat. She survived through us bringing twins home. She was the happiest dog ever. We miss her SO VERY MUCH.

She’s another rescue. She’s about a year old, from what we know. She has the sweetest disposition, but still she spent her first week with us destroying the house. Cue doggy school to learn some manners. She’s doing much better now!

How to Make Your Yard Practical and Beautiful

We’ve finally had our deck off our back porch refurbished! It was a little ratty from the previous owner, and it had been on “our list” for a while, so I’m thrilled that it’s finally taken care of – just in time for the weather to start cooling off a tad here in Central Florida! It adds such a nice touch to our backyard – the girls have been running around it, the dog has been sunning on it, and the hubby and I have been enjoying dinners on it! It’s the perfect finish for our yard!
