Laundry Just Got A Lot Easier With LG Twin Wash System #Ad @BestBuy @LGUS

LG TwinWash laundry_Family

If your like me you DREAD laundry day or in our case days! There never seems to be a time I am caught up on laundry. Well, no that’s not true, I’m usually caught up for about 30 minutes to an hour usually then it starts to pile up again. If my kids are sick you can just forget it, that washing machine is going ALL the time! They also love to wait till I have caught up and then everyone goes to take showers so that BAM! I have two loads of laundry again! So it’s a never ending battle for me to try to keep up with everything. Not to mention that doing laundry is not one of my favorite chores to begin with, so there is that as well.

One of the main features that I fell in love with on the LG Twin Wash System is that you can wash very small loads that just can’t wait. How many times have you needed this feature where you could wash something quickly because you needed to head out the door. You can throw in one shirt, your child’s sports uniform or anything else that you need washed quickly in the sidekick Pedestal washer and have it clean in now time without wasting a ton of water, laundry soap, and time. You can make it to your appointments on time, clean a shirt that you spilled on before it sets into the fabric, it will make your life so much easier! As parents we are always on the go, busy with our families needs, trying to keep up with everything and sometimes things slip through the crack. I try not to have it happen to often but it does happen. So you can still get everyone ready to go while washing and drying, have them change quickly and your ready for anything the day brings on. Not to mention if you have a large load and a small load of laundry you can wash them at the same time! Talk about getting your laundry done faster! Who wouldn’t love that!

The LG Twin Wash System also features six distinct washing cycles normal, intimates, hand wash, active wear, rise + spin and tub clean. So you can wash your intimates in the pedestal instead of the regular washer to keep them looking beautiful. Wash your other clothing in the large loads and they will come out perfect and clean. Have you had to go to the laundromat to wash your comforters? It’s now a trip of the past a King Size comforter into your LG Twin Washing System and wash your pillow cases in the pedestal at the same time! It’s really going to cut your Spring cleaning time in half! Imagine how fast you can get your cleaning done so you and your family can do fun things together instead of being stuck cleaning for hours and hours.

Now if that’s not enough, your really going to love that you also can receive up to $500 off a LG laundry solution for your home from 1/11-4/25! It’s going to be a great addition to your home! The deal of up to $500 couldn’t come at a better time with it being tax season as well! So you can use a little of your tax return to make your life simpler and save at the same time. Just think of all the family fun and outings you can have when you have the house clean and nothing left to do!

pantry

I know that many could use a little more kitchen or basement storage for your stockpiles,canning items, or just extra storage in general. There just never seems to be enough room for everything and it seems that homes are sometimes lacking storage areas for the things that you need. So I thought this would be a perfect solution that you could build yourself. Here are the directions for building the How to Build a Vertical Pull-Out Cabinet (Pantry). It would work great for under stairways that are open in the basement as well for extra storage.

It’s A Sad Day When Parents Are Buying Bullet Proof Backpacks For Their Children #SchoolShootings

Bullet proof backpacks

I can not even fathom what the parents and the children of the latest school shooting in Florida have endured. What they are still going through in the wake of the shooting. I can not comprehend what the parents, children and staff have gone through with other school shootings. In a month span we have had several threats of school shootings where we live as well. One happened yesterday and that is alone scary enough with just a threat so I can not even begin to imagine when one occurs what the after math and what the parents, students, and staff have gone through, I really can not even comprehend that this is something we have to wrap our heads around to begin with.

I also want to send out our heart felt thoughts and prayers for all of those in Florida who were affected by the latest shooting. It was heartbreaking to watch on the news as it was live and I could feel my heart racing while watching it. I can not begin to put myself in the parents shoes that were there waiting to see their child/children. I can not even begin to express as a parent how I felt as I watched this unfold on the news. I personally never thought that there would be a day that we would have to fear for our child’s safety while they were in their classrooms and school, as I’m sure many of you didn’t as well. Unfortunately, it has become a reality and something that we as parents have to face with our children.

Today as I was scrolling through my facebook feed, the reality of it really hit me as I saw some parents stating they were purchasing Bulletproof Backpacks for their child/Children. WHAT! When did that become a thing!!!! I had never heard of a Bulletproof Backpack before. I’m sure they were a product not just recently made and have been around but I had never done a “Hey let’s see if they make a Bulletproof Backpack” search before because why would you. I mean maybe if you were in a profession that was dangerous like a Police Officer or something like that you would need one. But to go to school…who would think that you would want to purchase one for your child! It is seriously a sad, sad day when you go and look at them and a lot of them are sold out because parents are purchasing them for their children. When did we go from Paw Patrol, Frozen, and other Character backpacks to nope we don’t need Characters we need Bulletproof! As a parent I have to say that this does not put me at ease by any means! There has to be a better way to protect our children then purchasing Bulletproof Backpacks.

10 Fun Ideas For Singles For Valentine’s Day #ValentinesDay #Singles

valentines-day-heart

Are you hearing everyone gush over what they hope their Valentine’s Day will entail. Do you have that envy feeling that everyone has that special someone? You know that not everyone does but it seems that way. Have you been looking at guys that you have thought about going out with just to have a date for Valentine’s Day?

It’s normal to feel like everyone has someone to go out with on Valentine’s Day when your not with anyone at the moment. Have you thought about making plans with Ben & Jerry for a little Cherry Garcia therapy on Valentine’s Day? Before you sink into the couch in your PJ’s with Ben & Jerry, why not listen to why it’s not a bad thing not to have a date on Valentine’s Day.

Take some of the pressure off yourself with these great reasons of Why it’s okay not to have a date for Valentine’s Day.

1. Being single has it’s perks, make plans with other singles to go watch a comedy movie, have dinner, or something that you all enjoy. Forget that it’s Valentine’s Day and just have a great time with friends.

2. Pamper yourself with a massage, getting your nails or hair done. There is nothing better then getting a little pampering and making the day brighter.

3. Attend a wine tasting, nothing more soothing for wine lovers then enjoying a great glass of wine. It’s a perfect way to enjoy the evening. Top the night off with a great meal and catching up with everyone on their lives.

4. Is there a friend you always mean to get together with but your schedules just never seem to go together? See if they are available to get together and catch up on Valentine’s Day. It’s always a great pick me up when you get together with someone you haven’t seen in ages. You will be so busy laughing and catching up that you will forget that it’s Valentine’s Day.

5. Have a singles get together in your home, invite all your single friends. Have them bring a dish to pass, serve wine or other drinks. Have a fun game night, play Selfie , Apples to Apples , or other games that will have everyone laughing. There are so many great games that you can choose from but I do highly suggest Selfie, and you do not need a Cell Phone to play.

6. Have a Valentine’s Day party with other Single Mom’s and their children. Just because your a single Mom, doesn’t mean you can’t have a great time on Valentine’s Day. Have everyone bring a child friendly dish to pass, have drinks, Let the kids decorate the kids table. Have fun with the foods, play games or watch a good movie.

7. Get a sitter for the kids, get together with other single moms and let your creative side shine. There are so many great painting studios, Ceramics, and other creative outlets that offer groups a great time of showing your creative side paired with a great wine. Let the creativity and laughter flow, while you have a great piece of art that you create to display in your home.

8. Have a fun children’s outing for Valentine’s Day. Take the kids to one of their favorite places for some Valentine’s Day fun. Take them a movie that they have been wanting to see, a child friendly restaurant or Chuck E. Cheese. Make Valentine’s Day all about your favorite Valentines.

9. Set up a fun party for the kids in another room with teens in charge. Have the video games, party games, finger foods, and other fun for them. Then host a Jewelry, cooking, or other home party for the adults. Serve some adult finger foods, and earn hostess credit for the items that you have been wanting.

10. Have a Valentine’s Day scavenger Hunt with the kids. Hid fun little trinkets around for them to hunt. Give them clues to the next trinket. Serve a fun Valentine’s Day meal of finger foods, plan some fun crafts, watch a movie, and just have fun. Those Valentine’s will only be little once, enjoy that time with them.

chocolate cream pie AMP

Oh the creamy, rich, fluffy texture of this pie, could have you begging for more! It is so light and airy that everyone will ask you how to get their pies to look as good as yours. I made this pie and I kid you not within an hour or two the whole pie was gone! My children will eat Chocolate Cream Pie like it is going out of style and then ask me to make another one! You would think that I would have smartened up and started to make two pies every time but nooooooo! I do get one piece of it before they inhale it.

I can’t say as I blame them with all the chocolate goodness in this pie. I just have to remember to make two of them and we will be set for at least two days. lol I’m lucky I got a photo of my pie before I ate it because if I make it at night when they are sleeping, come the morning they have already sniffed it out and are begging for a piece. I make them wait till after lunch at least to have some.

1/2 Cup cocoa powder
1 1/4 Cup sugar
1/3 Cup cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
3 Cups milk
3 TBS butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 (8 oz) container of Cool-Whip

* In a Saucepan, I mix all the dry ingredients so that they are combined well

* I add 1 cup of milk and mix it together with a whisk over a low heat

* Add 1 cup of milk after a few minutes of heat and continue to whisk

* Turn the heat up Add Rest of the Milk and whisk bring the pudding mixture to a boil but be sure to continue to whisk so that it does not stick to the bottom (Only boil for about a minute or so)

* Take Off the heat and add your butter, vanilla, and whisk it all together again, being careful not to whisk to fast as it’s very hot and will stick to your skin of splashed.

* Pour into a 9″ Pie Crust or Graham Cracker Crust and let cool for 4-6 hours

Take Your Wine Glasses From Drab To Fab With Some Glitter #HolidayDecor #DIY #Wine #Gift #WineLover #ValentinesDay

wine glass glitter 1

Do you have an event coming up or just want to spice up your wine glasses? There is a great way to do just that with some glitter. They will go from boring to looking fab with just a little bit of Ultra Fine glitter, some Modge Podge, a sponge brush, and a plastic container. You can purchase Extra fine glitter at the craft store as well as the Modge Podge (Get Dishwasher safe to wash in the dishwasher), I purchased the wine glass from the Dollar Tree for this project. You can also decorate Champagne glasses as well.

Wine glass glitter 2

You will start with your Modge Podge and put a layer on the wine glass stem. Then sprinkle the glitter you choose over the modge Podge. Then you will apply the Modge Podge to the bottom of the wine glass and around the edges of the glass and apply the glitter. Let it dry for 30-40 minutes and apply your next layer of modge podge and glitter. You will do between 3-5 layers till the glass is completely covered.

wine glass glitter 3

Once you have all your layers on you will start to add 3-5 more layers of Modge Podge over the glitter stem and let it dry another 30-40 minutes between coats to seal in the glitter.

wine glass glitter 5

When you have all your layers finished you will need to allow your wine glasses to dry for 3 days to allow all the layers that you applied to dry completely. Then your wine glass will be ready to be used. If you use the regular Modge Podge or one that is not dishwasher safe you will need to wash the glasses by hand when your done using them.
