Once-a-week Laundry

Once-a-Week Laundry System #MaytagMoms

I tried doing once-a-week laundry a while back [I guess it was probably a year ago]. I did it successfully for a while. But it was tough with my old washer and dryer. I was rushing to get it done. I rarely got it all done in one day. And eventually, my one day a week […]

First Day of Preschool: Picnic Lunch

Henry headed off to his first day of 4 year old preschool on Monday. New building. New teacher. New experience! Henry was excited for school to start [thanks to our back-to-school countdown with books!] and to keep up the excitement, we planned a special picnic with the whole family for after school [he goes just for […]

Laundry That’s Dependable Enough for Lovies! #MaytagMoms

I got my new Maytag Bravos XL washer and dryer! Yipee!  I listed off quite a few reasons before about why I am so excited about this opportunity to be a Maytag Mom! [a.k.a. Why my old washer sucked.] The top of the list was that my washer always stopped mid-cycle and beeped at me non-stop. […]

Time for Shoes with Shoelaces

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear. All opinions are 100% mine.   I swear sometimes all I do is shop for shoes for the boys. George, I think, has grown through three pairs this summer alone. He’s has monstruous feet! And Henry has actually been wearing through his shoes this summer! […]

Fabric Painted Pillowcase

Remember our tie dyed pillowcase gift wrap? I added to it for a special little girl’s birthday gift! I used this rather cool fabric paint called DecoArt Ink Effects that irons on whatever you paint! I’ll show you the simple how-to [though, its pretty easy, so there's not really much to show you!]. And the […]

#MaytagMoms washer and dryer laundry. It never stops.

Laundry. Is there a Light at the End of the Tunnel?

What do you like about doing laundry? Really? Did I just ask that? [Okay, my excuse it that I have some big news.... but just hold on...] Shall I rephrase? What do you not like about doing laundry? …. there come the answers. I asked this on Facebook earlier this week and was flooded with […]

Tie Dyed Pillow Case Gift Wrap

Tie Dyed Pillowcase Gift Wrap

The boys [okay mainly Henry] and I received this rad [had to break that out] Tulip Tie Dye Kit in the mail and got to do some tie dying! Totally! We came up with a plan to dye pillow cases before we even got the kit. So we tie dyed right away when we got the […]
