How to do Disney while Potty Training Bathroom Signs Photo Credit: Sam Howzit

Last month we went to Walt Disney World. It was our first big trip anywhere since we had started potty training. I wouldn’t say we’re in the potty training stage any more, but it takes time to feel like it’s smooth sailing. Accidents here and there are normal, but when you’re planning on not always having a bathroom close at hand (18 hour car trip anyone?) it can be a little scary. Nick had used public restrooms before, but we still wanted to be well prepared for our trip. No one wants a vacation to Disney ruined by potty accidents! In the end everything went great, and I wanted to share with you our secrets of how to do Disney while potty training. If you have a little one these are tips that need to be added to your Disney Planning Tips list! [click to continue…]

Get Everything you need at Meijer
For the semester that I lived in Florida the thing I missed the most about living in Michigan was Meijer. I love that store! I love that when I go in there I can get everything I need in one trip. Some other stores are trying to become like that, but none of them have been able to hit the perfect one stop shop with great prices that Meijer has. Having the amazing food selection that they do it was no surprise to me that I was easily able to find the new Birds Eye® Steamfresh Vegetables there. [click to continue…]

6 Tips to Make Laundry Easier

I can’t say that laundry is one of my favorite chores (does anyone actually have a favorite chore?), but it’s far from my least favorite. Well, except for folding sheets. I really hate folding sheets. I think the reason people really don’t like doing laundry is because it can easily get out of control and it becomes beyond overwhelming. Then you likely feel like you’re drowning in an endless sea of dirty clothes so you simply don’t do it. It’s like that Big Bang episode where instead of doing her laundry Penny simply buys a new outfit. Of course most of us can’t afford to constantly buy new clothes, and how silly would that be anyways? So it’s up to us to get our laundry done. To help I’ve compiled a list of 6 tips to make laundry easier, so that you can get it done allowing you to be free to be mom instead of the laundry lady. [click to continue…]
