My dogs are just about the cutest dogs ever. (And I am 100% biased!) But those cute little faces make stinky messes. They are getting older, 12 and 11 years old, and they have occasional accidents. Unfortunately for me, their bathroom of choice is my office. Ick! I recently discovered a natural pet odor remover and I am excited to share my Skout’s Honor review.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tom’s of Maine . All opinions are 100% mine. My journey to using natural products started like most parents, when I got pregnant with my first child. All of the sudden the ingredients and chemicals (or lack there of) mattered to me — a […]

Those who have been following this blog for a while know that I am very passionate about protecting our planet. And I have been since I was about 10 years old. Even as a child I could see that the way we threw things away was both wasteful and harmful. My parents would roll their […]

I used to call my college roommate Betty Crocker. She has always been the perfect homemaker (yes, even in college), while I have generally lacked in that department. I have gotten better over the years, but I still pale in comparison to her skills in all things homemaking. I had the opportunity to visit my […]

Not to mention those with toys and home goods that are still 100% usable (don’t worry, when I see those I rescue […]
Last month, we embarked on a mission to swap every light bulb in the house for more energy-efficient CFL bulbs. We were thrilled to reduce our energy usage, both to make our home more green and lower our energy bill. It’s something we slowly started a few years ago, but a whole house switch — it was quite […]
