Laundry is one of those house chores you dread but it has to get done and want to know a secret that will help you want to do laundry, yes I said want ;) Have you tried any of the Purex Crystals fabric softeners? I recently tried the NEW Purex Crystals Fresh Mountain Breeze and I am hooked!!

Not to mention our clothes smell great. It has been safe on our sensitive skin, with no reactions to the fragrance.

Clothes smell fresh for weeks, not days

Does not reduce the absorbency of towels

Natural formula is safe for your family and the environment

The Language Bear Books – Christmas idea

The Holidays are upon us, can you believe Christmas is less than 30 days away!! If you are like me you have been non stop thinking about Christmas since before Halloween was over and hardly have anything bought. Ive got a few people checked off our list but one person I have the hardest time buying for is my very own child. I don’t know what it is but Mason always gets put off till right before Christmas, I have the hardest time buying for him of course I could buy whatever off his list but most of that stuff is electronics and I try steering clear of those.

A simple and great gift to give any child this Christmas is a book, doesn’t require batteries, Its a great way to spend time with your loved ones. Bosley Builds a Treehouse by author Tim Johnson is intended to teach young children new words, phrases and is available with dual language translations in Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Chinese and Japanese. It is the fourth book in the Bosley Bear series.

Mason is always wanting to learn words in Spanish and since I don’t know hardly any this is a great way for both of us to learn.



It has great illustrations; great for new readers or kids just looking at the colorful pictures. It makes it easy for both the parent and child to learn the words in a different language, I don’t know about you but I’m not a natural at learning foreign languages! :)

Author Tim Johnson
“Tim discovered the power of bilingual books while visiting Japan as a teenager. In 2011 he published his first dual language children’s book in 7 different foreign languages as a tool for increasing cultural awareness and gaining new perspectives. Bosley Bear has since become popular among US and international readers, providing a fantastic way for children to learn a second language in a fun, easy and natural way.” Read more about Tim here.


I was given a copy of the book to review, however all opinions expressed here are my own.

Pear Tree Greetings & giveaway


It’s that time of year again, where you start preparing for the holidays “Christmas”! One of my fav things to do around the holidays is give and receive Christmas cards. Yes I said receive, who doesn’t love going to the mail box and finding a card?!? My card tradition first started out buying the box of 16 cards, filling them out putting a school picture in it and mailing it to my family and friends. Now the big thing is the photo cards, love! All you have to do is pick that perfect picture(or more) to send to all your family and friends and no it doesn’t have to be a professional taken one. Then pick the design you like and order :)

Pear Tree Greetings has so many cute designs; makes it hard to choose just one. But they have everything from holiday post cards, photo ornaments, collage photo cards, magnet cards. Right now I’m really liking the ornament cards and the cards with photos and year reflections. Great quality cards with good prices.

Some of my favorite designs, go to Pear Tree Greetings for so many more!

The HOLIDAYS are coming! Yeppie! Something I look forward to every year is Christmas/Holiday cards, I love sending them out and love going to the mailbox, opening it up and seeing a card envelope. It’s like a present every time! And honestly it kinda is, because we can’t afford to give all our family and friends a present so we mail them a card with our picture on it :)

I have been sending Christmas cards since I can remember. A couple years ago my aunt told me I’m the only one who sends her a card and she gets excited every year, that put a smile on my face.
