I know and you know we don't like to clean
(unless you are my mother, she is like Danny Tanner from the TV show
Full House). I like to get my cleaning
#1. Use coffee filters instead of paper towels
to clean your windows. Paper towels can leave streaks and lint on the
glass. Coffe filters won't, and
#2. Clean your microwave with a cup of water and
baking soda. Just mix it together, and microwave it until it starts
boiling. It'll get rid of any weird
#3. Use dryer sheets to clean your window blinds. It creates an anti-static barrier that helps prevent dust from building up again.
#4. To clean oven, use a wet pumice stone.
Obviously, that's for really tough, blackened build-up. You don't want
to scratch anything. According to
#5. Use a denture tablet to clean your toilet.
Just drop one in and leave it for at least 30 minutes. Or overnight if
it's REALLY bad. After it dissolves,

My brother Tom is back in college after the holiday break. Before he went back, he took mom to get a "few" groceries for school.

11/3/12 Are you Obsessed with Pinterest?
Are you like me who are not on facebook all the time anymore but on Pinterest? I've been a little OCD with it! I can't help it, so
many ideas I found that makes me what to have a big arts and crafts day. From decorating your home, all the cute ideas to give your
friends and family for Christmas. I pretty much have my wedding planned out from this site, even the food reciepes I have planned
for what I am making for the holidays. It's Addicting!!!! What I really want to do is have a pinterest party! It's a new way to get a group
of your girls together, bring in a pinterest food dish and something crafty to do. Good excuse to have a girls night out!
09/22/12 Well......He Put A Ring On It!
Last week went to Hocking Hills with Josh for vacation. Didn't know where I was going, Josh planned
it all. Only thing I knew was what to pack. Once I knew where we were going, found out he got us a cabin!
Always wanted to take him camping, so I think this was his way, without sleeping in a tent. Very nice cabin,
cute kitchen, cool living room, loft bedroom, and my favorite feature a hot tub out on the porch (spent 95% of my time in).
It was nice relaxing, being in the middle of nowhere, no one bugging you, and my favorite part no reception! You think it
would be hard not having your phone or internet, but you would be surprised. Next day, was a morning I will always remember.
Josh made breakfast in bed for me (what every girl likes). Then after, he gave me a present. Which at the time we were tying our 3 year anniversay
together with vacation. I open it and it was a memory box with our names carved in it, and inside was old ticket concert/movie stubs,
little notes he used to write, and a beautiful two page letter saying how much he loves me. Then looking deeper in the box, there was photos
with sayings typed on them. I'm flipping through the photos, reading the sayings. The last two I read said, with a nervous smile my knee is bent,
then the last photo finally said, WILL YOU MARRY ME? I look over to Josh, and there he was with the ring. Think the first word's out of my mouth
was SERIOUSLY? Then after it was a YES! Here's a few photo's from our trip......
Myself in our cabin Josh and I going through Ash Cave He put a ring on it
08/22/12 Having A Long Day At Work??? This Might Help
SMELLS TO GET YOU THROUGH THE WORKDAY
For a Migraine Headache: Sniff green apple.
The aroma changes the electoral activity in your brain, which can reduce the constriction of blood vessels
in your head and decrease your pain.
For low Energy: Sniff the scent of peppermint.
Studies show that people who smell peppermint get a sudden burst of energy, because the aroma increases
activity in the part of your brain that is responsible for alertness.
When you need to Concentrate: Stop and Smell the Roses.
The essential oils in the florers release brain chemicals that increase attention, which can boost your memory
and learning speed by up to 17%.
08/01/12 Who Needs A Barbie Doll When You Have A Box!
Isn't funny how the most simple thing like a box can entertain you for hours! That's what kept me occupied
when I was three. Mom would have all these toys that she would buy for me, from barbie dolls to a tea set.
Nope, all I wanted was that box. Can you tell I am having a ball? After finding this picture, my mother was thinking
how much she would of saved on toys if she just knew a box would make me happy.
Did you have a favorite toy growing up?
6/25/12 Girl Time!
Nothing like good friend's and a glass of wine! Best quoted by Leann Rimes. This past weekend I was in Westlake-Cleveland
for my best friend's bachelorette party (She's the one with the pink sash, and i'm to the left of her). Let's just say we had some fun!
We dressed in our best, went out to a nice place to eat/drink/dance, and had a night to remember.
All in all, it was just nice to catch up with friends that I haven't talked to in awhile. You have a friend that you haven't caught up with in a long time?
If you do, why don't you give that person a call. You never know, you also could be enjoying a day with a good friend and some wine!
I recommend the White Reisling :-)
6/01/12 Summer Plans!
Do you have any BIG plans for the summer? For me, I have already accomplished one of my BIG plans by moving. Let's just say I am
glad that's over! Other then that, i'm part of a wedding this July, so I have been busy filling my maid of honor duties by hosting the bridal shower
I just did 2 weeks ago, now it's time for the fun part of getting things ready for the bachelorette party! The things that are up my sleeve (Evil Laugh Inserted here).
Hopefully after the wedding and all, get some time to maybe head up to Cedar Point and relax on the beach. Beach is one of my favoite places to be at.
With Little Big Town's new song Pontoon, makes me want to be out on the water having a good time. Here's their music video for you to check out!
5/11/12 What Makes Me Happy???
If James Lipton from Inside the Actors Studio asked me what is my favorite word, I would 100% say VACATION!
That one word brings ALOT of joy to me for obvious reasons. Don't you love that word too? Anytime now I hear the song,
No Hurry by Zac Brown Band I always think of myself on vacation sitting on the beach with my sunglasses,
big floppy hat, and a drink with the little umbrella in it just relaxing and having fun (I dream to much).
To put you in that No Hurry vacation mood, here's the bands music video.
