Creating A Garden Filled With Organic Vegetables and Beautiful Flowers

This post brought to you by Organic Choice. All opinions are 100% mine. For my edible gardening, I only use organic products. It’s not only better for the environment, but it’s better for my family, and as a family that eats 80% organic diet, it makes sense that the garden I grow for our family’s […]

  • Ok, so I didn’t know they had organic products to grown organic vegetables at home! You learn something new everyday.ReplyCancel

  • I love when the first signs/sprouts of live bloom that I’ve planted with my own hands. It’s so exciting. :)ReplyCancel

  • I would love a huge garden one day. Love your blue flower!ReplyCancel

  • I love Miracle Gro, so I will have to try this out! I can’t wait to start planting flowers and our garden!!!ReplyCancel

  • Organic is definitely the only way to go in our home as well. Your garden seems to be coming along quite nicely!ReplyCancel

  • I have a lonely blue Hyacinth hanging out in my garden too.ReplyCancel

      I just sprinkled some seeds into the ground after using the Scott’s last year and this is what popped up, the Hyacinth and lots of tulips…it was such a pretty surprise!ReplyCancel

  • Such pretty flowers! Gardening is definitely one thing I love doing in the spring and summer. :)ReplyCancel

  • I love a big salad full of garden fresh veggies. We don’t have much luck here in the Missouri River bed, but maybe this will help!ReplyCancel

  • I can’t wait until I can plant my garden! I love Miracle-Gro too.ReplyCancel

  • Those flowers are gorgeous! I have a hard time keeping any green living thing alive, but I keep trying.ReplyCancel

  • Oh, your lettuce is looking fabulous! There’s nothing like fresh lettuce from the garden – it lasts so long after cutting!ReplyCancel

  • We got our potting soil from a company in Wisconsin this year. A 2 cubic foot tote! It was much cheaper than the individual bags I bought last year and cheaper than other companies offering the tote size we needed. We are doing raised beds and a commercial garden for our customers, plus it will be a soil implement since our land was farmed by big Ag so the soil needs extra ooupmf. ;)ReplyCancel

New Jersey, A State Filled With Fun, Culture, and Heart #NJStrong

This post brought to you by New Jersey’s Division of Travel & Tourism. All opinions are 100% mine. I love living in New York, but over to my side is another fun place to visit, and every time I do I have a great time. I’m talking about my neighbor state, New Jersey, which has […]

  • I have never been to New Jersey. It sounds like there is a lot to do and see there!ReplyCancel

  • I’ve never been to NJ, but I have a good online friend that I’ve never met IRL, but hope to one day, so I’d love to go to NJ to meet up with her.ReplyCancel

  • I actually went to New Jersey to visit family back in 2010. Since it was summer we spent a day at the shore and had a lot of fun.ReplyCancel

  • I have never been to NJ. I bet it would be a great place to visit. I’d probably spend most of my time at the beach!ReplyCancel

  • I really would love to visit there one year! It seems like they are a strong family and the rebuild they did was quick and nice to see a community come together the way they did!ReplyCancel

  • I’ve never been to NJ but sounds like there is a lot to do.ReplyCancel

  • My cousin lives in Jersey. I’m from NYC so there is a rivalry. :)ReplyCancel

  • We went into New Jersey on our honeymoon. Unfortunately we didn’t get to do anything fun for the day we spent there because the weather was horrible. Some day we will visit again.ReplyCancel

  • I’ve always wanted to spend some real time in New Jersey. I’ve been there but only passing by.ReplyCancel

  • I’ve never been but love their tomatoes :)ReplyCancel

  • Lisa

    I’ve been to New York for work but haven’t been to Jersey. Many reasons I want to go and the timing will be right one of these years!ReplyCancel

Our Family’s Favorite Snacks #FinishMoms #CleanItForward

I’m part of the Finish Power & Free Alliance of Moms, encouraging others to #CleanItForward in the Power and Free Challenge for a better 2014. Sometimes you just feel like snacking, and in this house, we keep a lot of healthy snacks around for when we get the munchies. Between baby carrots, healthy trail mix, […]

  • Those are great options! I need to make some this week. Love, Finish products they do an amazing job on my dishes.ReplyCancel

  • Kathleen

    I have never seen popcorn in trail mix before. Yum, I bet my boys would love that.ReplyCancel

  • I’m really trying to make better choices with food but haven’t been doing very good. Thanks for this idea of a healthier trail mix.ReplyCancel

  • Your trail mix looks delicious. I need to find more healthy snacks.ReplyCancel

  • Your snack looks yummy and love that you are growing your own garden. I’m afraid we would starve if that was left in my hands LOL!ReplyCancel

  • Trail mix is definitely one of my biggest vices and Finish products are a favorite around our home.ReplyCancel

  • I really need to get a new dishwasher. OUrs broke last spring and I haven’t bought a new one yet. I buy a lot of organic and am trying to get my family away from packaged products, which is a VERY hard habit to break. Love the looks of your healthy trail mix.ReplyCancel

  • I need to try and eat more smaller meals. I end up snacking too much in between mealsReplyCancel

  • That trail mix looks so good. I am sure I would love it!! My husband is diabetic so he has to watch what he eats.ReplyCancel

  • I need to make some trail mix for my family.

    I use Finish but I need to look into this new line.ReplyCancel

  • I love trail mix! I should pick up some Finish to try. I am always open to trying products with less or no harsh chemicals!ReplyCancel

  • In our last home I could for some reason only use Finish in my dishwasher, every other kind did some crazy number on my dishes and the interior of my machine. When we moved I thought I’d try something else… well I’m back to Finish because it really does the best job clean hands down over any other kind of detergent I’ve tried. I’m happy they were able to cut down on the harsh chemicals and still get as good of a clean!ReplyCancel

  • We love trail mix and seeing your post makes me want to make some.ReplyCancel

  • That’s one of our favorite snacks as well!ReplyCancel

  • That looks so delicious. I want to make some for my desk at work.ReplyCancel

  • I use Finish anyhow, but I want to switch to this version instead. Also, your snack mix looks yummy!ReplyCancel

The 2014 Kia Soul

The 2014 Kia Soul made it’s way onto my driveway recently one rainy day for a weeklong test drive, and the site of a bright yellow vehicle took me by surprise. It took many people by surprise, because this is one noticeable car: My husband said it was a girl’s car, and after taking it […]
