5 Things to know about Memorial Day

  1. Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day.
  2. More than two dozen cities lay claim to being the site of the first  Memorial Day commemoration.
  3. The first national commemoration took place on May 30, 1868, as  flowers were placed on the graves of both Union and Confederate soldiers  at Arlington National Cemetery.
  4. In 1966, Congress and President Lyndon B. Johnson declared Waterloo,  NY, as the “birthplace” of Memorial Day, citing a ceremony held on May  5, 1866 to honor Civil War dead.
  5. It is believed that the date was chosen because by May 30, flowers  would be in bloom all over the country.



Skoy Cloth Review and Giveaway!!

I was recently sent some SKOY CLOTHS to try out and review!  I stopped buying paper towels a few weeks ago, and have been using cloth napkins, washcloths, and cleaning rags.  But these SKOY CLOTHS are great!  They are made like a sponge, highly absorbent and 1 cloth equals about 15 rolls of paper towels in the average home!  SKOY CLOTHS are 100% biodegradable because they are made from natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp.  It is a chlorine free product using water based colors and inks.

These SKOY cloths are easy to care for; they are machine washable and dishwasher safe.  To remove germs, just place a wet SKOY cloth in the microwave for 1-2 minutes!  Mine have been really put to the test lately, being washed often, and they are holding up just fine! I use them for everything from soaking up spilled juice to scrubbing sticky syrup off the kitchen table!

SKOY cloths can hold up to 15 times their weight!! And each one lasts for about 5 weeks!

More than I can say for any paper towel I have ever used 🙂

To buy your own SKOY Cloths visit their website a 4-pack of mixed colors is $6.99.

Bedrest is not for me…

Whoa ok so I finally hit 35 weeks and have been on bedrest for the last 4 weeks! The Doctor says that I will probably need to have the baby in about two weeks 🙂

Bedrest is NOT for me! I am a control freak by nature and not being able to do normal day-to-day housework is making me nuts! Luckily my husband is amazing and is keeping up with all the housework but it’s the way he does it differently than I do that drives me crazy! Don’t get me wrong I am so glad he is doing it without me asking or bothering him about it but I actually miss switching laundry and sweeping the floor.

The one household activity I am allowed to do is check the mail!! Thank goodness because I cannot do without my fluffy mail 🙂 And now for the exciting part….


I will be posting the first one next week and the other will have to wait for my baby girl to arrive so she can test them out!!

Keep checking the page often and send over your friends so they can get in on the giveaways too!

Sunday Funday

I had a great Sunday with my family. It was my mother-in-law’s birthday so we went to visit and have a BBQ. My son and my husband ended up spending most of the day fishing and swimming with grandpa while my MIL and I talked baby 🙂 Everyone is getting so excited about her upcoming arrival, it so awesome to really feel the love!

Something funny my son was telling my MIL that I was using ribbon to make “hairBONES” for Sophie to wear with her outfits LOL I didn’t realize until today that he thought I was saying hairbones instead of bows, little boys are so funny. 🙂

Anything that your little ones say the wrong way?

PS: Working on getting some giveaways together soon!! Keep checking back!
