Spring Fever!

I do believe that my dog has spring fever. He has been so crazy the past 2 days I almost want to place an ad for a new home for our Benny!

Yesterday after I made one grocery store stop, yet had to look for a better cut of Corned Beef at another grocery store, I left my huge dog in the van. I didn't think it was a problem. I had done this many times before and he was wearing, what we call, his Priest vest which helped him to be buckled in. (The vest is black with a bit of white fleece that pokes up at the neck. You take the seat belt through a loop in the back of the vest and secure your giant dog in the seat. He's as big as a person. Yup.)

When I came back to the van the vest was dangling from the seatbelt --- empty. What the?!? I look in the very back of the van and see this brown animal. 'BENNY!!!' I shouted. He jerked his head up so fast that he sprayed flour, which he had his nose buried in, all over the back seat. He lept over the seats in a lame attempt to get back in his seat and pretend that he didn't do anything. "What? Me? What?" His eyes seem to say. What a dork. (I could be talking about either one of us at this moment.)

At home the clean-up started. I want to share a product that I really appreciated having. In case you're in need of a fantastic, earth-friendly cleaning product let me recommend ecostore Spray Cleaner. I've been using this for kitchen clean-up and have been really happy with it. And now that I've had to use it on the interior of my van, let me just say, it works great!

So, if you're in need of a great cleaning product that uses earth safe ingredients try ecotore. The labels are cute too! And if you would like a huge chocolate Labrador drop me a line. (Just don't tell my family.)

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
