Excited to partner with Walmart & SheSpeaks to bring you some fun ideas for spring gardening with kids!

It’s been chilly here the past few days, but it’s consistently getting warmer and more sunny every day.  Spring really wants to shine!

Spring Gardening with Kids: A DIY Upcycled Planter + Free Printable Plant Growth Tracker!

To get ready for spring we’ve been doing lots of spring cleaning, including getting the garage organized.  While he was moving things around my husband found some seeds we had left from last season.  Bubbles immediately declared that we needed to plant them.  The only problem with that was… we only had gardening soil, but no starters or planters.

Thank you to The Motherhood and Kimberly-Clark for partnering with me to bring you this printable cleaning chart for preschoolers.

Bubbles loves to help around the house.  She knows where we keep the duster and often just gets it and asks if she can dust.  And if she hears the dryer buzz when it’s finished, she races me there so she can help fold clothes.

How to Make Spring Cleaning Fun for the Whole Family

The past couple of weeks we’ve had a few days of beautiful weather mixed in with some rainy cold ones.  When the sun has been out, we’ve been out with it getting a jump on our spring cleaning.  As Bubbles, of course, has wanted to be involved in that, too, I looked for a way to make it easier for her to participate.

Have you ever had anyone give a little sniff and ask you, “What’s that smell?”. And you have no idea, because you can’t smell it? If you’ve found yourself in this situation, you may be suffering from noseblindness!

Cure Noseblindness with Febreze! #Noseblind #DDDivas

What, exactly, is noseblindness? Well, over time, we all become accustom to the odors around us. Odors from various activities – like baking, for example – can stay airborne or cling to soft surfaces. When the odors stick around, they start to blend in, leaving you “nasally challenged” to your own environment. Continue reading »

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Mr. Clean. I was provided the featured product free along with a gift card to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Not everyone loves cleaning.  I know, who would have guessed, right?  Even for myself, as much as I love organizing, there are some places I’d rather pass off the cleaning to someone else if at all possible.

Floors, for example.  I think it’s because it was one of my chores when I was a kid.  I also don’t really jump for joy when it’s time to clean the bathroom, either.

New Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle #CleanFreeWeekend

So when I recently heard about Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle, I knew I wanted to learn more.  It has 2.5 times more power in every drop, which means it a deeper clean, lifting away more dirt with less effort.  Now weekends mean less scrubbing time, which means more free time to play outside with Bubbles or make trips to the mall.

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All thoughts and words are my own.

As much as I love to organize and clean, there have always been a few tasks that were on my short list of “would rather not”.  Some people hate dusting and laundry; I actually like those tasks.  But vacuuming, while not an inherently hard task, has never been my favorite.

To start with, I’m short.  Most vacuums I’ve owned have come up well past my waist, which makes them awkward to handle.  And then I have to drag the thing around, trying to not knock stuff over, stopping to haul things out of the way so I can get under every surface and behind every nook.

New Dyson DC59 Available at Best Buy #DysonatBestBuy #BestBuyWOLF

But now – now I seriously love vacuuming.  Like, I’ve vacuumed “just for fun” a couple of times, when it didn’t really even need it.  And it’s all because of the new Dyson DC59 available at Best Buy. Continue reading »
