Cleaning Your Front Loading Washer

Cleaning Your Front Loading Washer

3 years ago when we bought our home, my husband and I jumped on the front loading band wagon and got ourselves a pretty, modern-looking, shiny new washer and dryer. You may not even believe me when I tell you my husband had to convince ME to get it. He couldn’t wait to do laundry and even said he would do all the laundry if I would fold. I gladly accepted that offer, but 3 years later I’m doing both the laundry AND folding, so who’s the fool here? We didn’t know that with these front loaders came a few…

DIY Bubble Guppies Costume

DIY Bubble Guppies Costume

  It’s no secret that my little girl is obsessed with Bubble Guppies on Nick Jr. And it’s also no secret that I am fed up with the lack of Bubble Guppies merchandise! So I took matters into my own hands and decided to make my daughter and niece Bubble Guppies costume for Halloween. This is my first attempt at making a costume and it came out great! I am no sewer by any means, but I do know my way around a sewing machine for basic work. I searched for some fabric at Joann Fabrics and Walmart and luckily…

10 Pregnancy Facts Every First-time Mom Should Hear

0

Since my daughter was an, ahem, accident/surprise and we weren’t mentally prepared, there were a lot of things we didn’t know about pregnancy.  People mostly focused on the “positive” stuff like telling me my boobs would get bigger, how I can eat anything I wanted or my hair and nails would grow. Fantastic. I even got lots of unsolicited “personal” stories about labor. Those were my favorite. Horror stories of 35 hour labors, emergency C-Sections – fully detailed. That’s exactly what you should do to a pregnant woman – tell her how horrendous your experience was. And after people would…

Cyber Monday > Black Friday

0

I hate Black Friday with every ounce of my soul. In no way is it fun to go out shopping at midnight, wait in excruciating long lines with pushy, obnoxious people who in an instant will turn on you for a Nintendo game or barbie doll. I don’t know about you, but that is far from the “Christmas Spirit” that we all claim to have as soon as the turkey is down our hatchets. I get that people want a deal and decide to venture out after waking from their turkey comas, but how badly do you need that item…

Humpday Shopping – Online

0

I am a huge fan of online shopping. Although I am very cautious of what sites I purchase from, I like to find new places to shop from time to time. My husband hates my shopping addiction but he is going to have to deal with it just like I have to deal with his Jets psychoness. I am all about getting things online that I can’t get in stores. The original the better baby. I found three awesome sites that are all budget friendly and original. ChloelovesCharlie that lives up to that. Extremely adorable, boutique clothing at reasonable prices….

Monday Bites.

0

After a long weekend of partying, I have come to realize I’m getting old. We went to an amazing wedding in NY and partied the night away. Now I am exhausted, my feet are killing me, my knees and ankles are sore and I can barely keep my eyes open. WTF happened to me!?? Monday’s bite. On that note, I made a kick ass meal the night before we left. If you like cilantro and lime you will like this! It was really easy and I made it with in no time. Plus it helped me get rid of both….

Saturday Night Rant

0

You know what really grinds my gears? Getting a 2 a.m. picture text from my husband of himself and the absolute hottest front man, Adam Levine. Mind you, my husband was on a business trip and was out “networking” (aka ordering bottle service and drinking till 4 am) with clients. Bastard. He knows how much I love him, and he knows how much shit I give him for his late night “business meetings” at clubs, but he was the one passed the fuck out at a Maroon 5 concerts not me..and he got to take a picture with Mr. Levine….

Mommy and Me

0

I have a confession. Until this morning I was a “Mommy & Me” virgin. I know I should go to these little groups, I know my lil girl would enjoy and benefit going, but I just never did. I went a whole 7 months without it but I caved. I don’t really have any “mom” friends. I have a couple but figured I should go out and try to make more. I had a few bad experiences with unsocial-clique-y moms but I put that and my paranoia of her getting sick from other babies aside and took an introductory class…

Thirsty Thursday – Dirttty Edition

0

I would like to pay homage to one of the tastiest and classiest of martinis this week: The Dirty Martini. Possibly my favorite of all the martini’s out there. One of my first experiences wtih this lucious drink was back almost 6 years ago at Blue Martini. As soon as the salty mix touched my lips I was hooked. What made this drink what it is was the garnish of olives. They weren’t your normal Spanish olives. They were stuffed with..wait for it…blue cheese. Indulge yourself..I beg of you. Classic Vodka Dirttty Martini with Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives Makes 2…
