Happy Valentine's Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Once again, I was lucky enough to be able to order a card from to review. Last time it was for Father's Day and this time I got to make Michael one for Valentine's Day! I think it turned out really cute! I really love personalizing things for gifts and I know Michael LOVES these cards. He keeps them out to see them every day. Thank you, Cardstore!

I'm so blessed to be able to call Michael my Valentine every year. We have Emily, Jexi, and the baby on the way that we love too so we have a lot of love to celebrate this year.

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope that even if you don't have a significant other to celebrate it with, there is someone in your life you love and who loves you.

I love love!!

Top Five Twitter Annoyances

I'm finally coming out of my blog coma because I felt inspired to write a little blog rant! I know, lucky you! If you don't use Twitter then this probably won't make any sense to you. For those of you on Twitter, you'll understand!!

Here are my top Twitter annoyances:

  1. Cliques. When the same people tweet each other and ignore everyone else. I feel like these people are always sucking up to each other and patting each other on the backs. Haha, you're so funny. Not. Go text each other and get off of Twitter.
  2. Those people you can tell are constantly trying to be funny but it's just annoying.
  3. Tweeting ads and self promoting. Especially if it's several in a row or if that's all you ever do. If you don't interact with people, expect to be unfollowed!
  4. Football tweets. Just, in general. I know a lot of people love football and that's fine but I really don't care to see a play by play of every game on my Twitter feed.
  5. Spoilers!! I don't watch my shows live (and even if I did, I'm on the west coast so I see it last anyway) so if I'm on Twitter and see you tweeting about what just happened at the end of a show I haven't seen yet...that's a pretty quick way to get on my bad side.
Those are my top five Twitter pet peeves off the top of my head. What about you? What annoys you on Twitter?

House Cleaning Tips

A couple of months ago, right before Emily's birthday party, I asked a couple of my friends from church who do house cleaning to come over and help me out with some of the deep cleaning in my house. I had zero energy and was so sick, I just couldn't do it and it was stressing me out that I was going to have a bunch of people over who would see my dirty house.

So they came over to inspect my house and gave me a list of some things I needed for them to do a good job. I had no idea I was lacking so much in the cleaning supplies department too! I had the typical bathroom cleaner, Pledge, comet, Windex, and old towels that Michael used to use for window cleaning before we were married. But I learned so much in the way of cleaning by what they told me I needed and watching them make my house the cleanest I had ever seen it.

Here are the top three things I am so glad I learned:

1. Oxi Clean Kaboom Foam-Tastic bathroom cleaner does wonders for hard water stains. Our shower door gets it really bad. Spray it on and it is blue, it turns white when it's clean, scrub down and that's it! It smells really strong so I haven't been able to do it a lot while pregnant but it does work!!

2. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser- how did I not know about these things?! My stove top was seemingly permanently ruined from spilled over water rings. It took them an hour of scrubbing it with this and ammonia for it to become like new. It's perfectly sparkly clean now! This picks it right up.

 3. Microfiber cloths to clean with are way more effective than regular cloth towels. I would always see streaks on my kitchen counter even after wiping it down. Now I know to use hot soapy water instead of cleaning products, scrub down counters, appliances, and the faucet with one cloth soaked in soapy water. When everything is sudsy and clean, I wipe it down again with a clean dry microfiber cloth and there are no streaks or anything. Perfectly shiny kitchen!! I use these on everything now with the appropriate cleaning supplies. HUGE difference.

Maybe everyone already knew these tips but me, but I'm guessing some of you, like me, just needed a little help! I hope this helps!
