Kraft Shredded Cheese for $0.88 a Bag
I've told you before and I'll tell you again- I LOVE cheese! I don't think I go a day without eating some type of cheese. And usually I have 6-8 different types in my fridge at a time. Cheese is pretty pricey so anytime I can get a good deal on it, I stock up. This week there's a great deal going on at Lowe's Food stores. So here's the steal: All bags of shredded Kraft Cheese are on sal...

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle
So my little "Harriet Potter" has been having a BLAST with the PS3 Lego Harry Potter game and as if that wasn't enough, my In-Laws got her the coolest Lego set around. It's the Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle! This isn't the ordinary "Lego" set that I grew up with. This Lego set has hinges and doors, flames on torches, stairs that swivel, and much, much more. It's AMAZING! My In-Laws had as...
Happy 5th Birthday, Emma!!!
My baby is turning 5 today. She is SOOO excited about this age, and the fact that the dentist told her 2 days ago that her two bottom teeth were loose. I keep telling her she's going to look like a jack-o-lantern but she doesn't seem to mind:) I received the Picaboo book in the mail yesterday and it's all wrapped up and ready for Emma to open up. It came out REALLY nice. Can't believe I...

I just found out from My Baton Rouge Mommy that Picaboo is offering new customers a FREE large Classic book from October 15 to 25th by using code FALLBK.

Vita Mix Blender – The Kitchen Appliance No Home Should Be Without
I've got to be honest with you. I hate infomercials. I also don't care much for sales Kiosks where fast-talking snake oil salesmen wearing headset microphones attempt to mesmerize you with their clever words and trivial knowledge. In fact, the Vita Mix blender Kiosk at our local Costco had been up and running for several months before we finally approached it during one of our latest visits. Prior...

Our First Snow of the Year

Posted By: Elena on January 30, 2010 in Emma - Comments: No Comments »

It finally snowed, and my daughter couldn’t be happier!

Last night she woke up at midnight, pulled back her curtains, opened her blinds and stared at the snow that was accumulating on the ground. She asked me to take her outside to play and I told her we would go out in the morning. She then began to cry. I threatened her convinced her to go back to bed:)

This morning after breakfast we went outside to play in the snow and had a wonderful time. Here are some pictures.

Recycling Cloth Items

Posted By: Elena on January 17, 2010 in Emma, Recycling - Comments: No Comments »

Here is a list of cloth items that I recycle:

  • Use Daddy’s t-shirt as a smock
  • Use socks with small holes to clean the furniture
  • Use old burp cloths as kitchen towels

Note: All items are washed and clean before reusing them.

My daughter Emma loves to paint so we use one of Mark’s old t-shirts as a smock.  It covers & protects her clothes completely and is lose fitting, allowing her to be comfortable.

The socks are wonderful for dusting and cleaning furniture because you can wear them on your hand making it easy to wipe the furniture.  Emma takes one sock, I take another and we dust all the furniture.  Then, we flip the sock over (so the dusty side is on the top) and I spray some furniture polish on the furniture.  We then go around and polish the furniture.  It’s an easy way for kids to help you out with cleaning.  She really enjoys this!

Lastly are the burp cloths.  Emma was not a colicky baby so luckily, her burp cloths are still in really good condition. I had purchased about 20 burp cloths when I had her and didn’t want these to go to waste, so I now use them for clean ups around the kitchen.

Do you recycle cloth materials?  I’d love to hear your recycling tips.
