Clean Safely and Effectively!

Thieves Cleaner is a staple in our home

Thieves Household Cleaner is one of my favorite Young Living products! It's all natural, non toxic and safe for pets and children. We use Thieves cleaner for everything from our toilets to our kitchen sink and everything in between.  Check out this awesome graphic for ideas on cleaning your home!! It wasn't until I started really educating myself and using Young Living products that I realized just how many chemicals I was exposing my family to. I have been able to eliminate 90% of my toxic chemicals with just Thieves Household Cleaner! So not only am I saving money because Thieves Cleaner should be diluted with distilled water but I no longer buy any of the old toxic cleaners I was using! I honestly don't know what I'd do … [Continue]

Cool Off This Summer AT Splashtown San Antonio

cooling off at splashtown

We were *invited by Splashtown to spend the day having fun in the sun and cooling off on their water slides and pools! We had a blast! If you are looking for a fun summer activity that will keep you cool I HIGHLY recommend a day or even season pass to Splashtown San Antonio! A couple years ago I shared why we wanted to get season passes to Splashtown on this post. After spending our Saturday there I must say this list is still completely accurate! We love Splashtown for so many reasons! First they are family friendly. With over 50 rides and attractions there is something for everyone in the family! Like when my older kids want to ride the large water slides with dad the littles and I can hang out in the brand new Splash Island! We … [Continue]

I made my salsa for Fiesta Bunco night a couple months back and since then my friends keep requesting it at all of our get-togethers.

I do have a secret ingredient that I think takes my salsa to the next level! See if … [Continue]

Bruise & Pain Be Gone - Young Living #EssentialOils #Frankincense #PanAway

During our recent move we were living in a house with boxes for a few weeks. One afternoon I ran my toe into a box, OUCH! I tend to break this one little pinky toe about once a year so it was due time for an injury. I decided to go to my Young Living Essential Oils Premium Starter Kit first. I applied PanAway directly on my sore toe to help … [Continue]

Essential Oils: From Skeptic to Believer…I’m in LOVE!

Essential Oils: From Skeptic to Believer - 10 Reasons I Choose Young Living

I started hearing about essential oils a couple of years ago. I didn't understand what all the hype was about. I was content with our health so why would I need or want essential oils. Plus the prices scared my inner frugal goddess to death. There was no way I was going to buy any essential oils. Fast forward to the winter 2014 in South Texas. I … [Continue]

Let me start of by saying I read all three 50 Shades of Grey books, in three weeks around this time last year. While it wasn't a riveting complex read it did have a great story line carried throughout the series (that is my why but keep reading!). With the release of the movie a week away my Facebook feed has been bombarded with all the reasons you … [Continue]

Kidecals – My Review of their labels!

Ready for school

Let me start off by saying that I was given a free sheet of Kidecals labels to try in return for my review. All opinions are completely my own and I am not being compensated in any other way. Having four kids you can imagine that keeping each of their items straight (because heaven forbid they have to share their favorite cup) can be difficult. … [Continue]
