Dry Idea AdvancedDry Fresh Review & Giveaway

I had the opportunity to test out Dry Idea AdvancedDry Fresh deodorant.  Please keep in mind that this is my honest review of this product.  Your experience could be totally different from my experience with this product.

I am always skeptical of roll on deodorants.  I haven't had much luck with roll ons.  I am a more solid kind of girl.  With 4 boys, I need to shower and go- I don't have time to wait for my underarms to dry to get dressed so I don't end up with white streaks on my shirt.  You know what I am talking about?

Dry Idea AdvancedDry Fresh deodorant assures that it offers odor protection for 72 hours and is Pulse Activated keeping you dry all day long.

So, how did it go, you may ask?

Well, I have mixed feelings over Dry Idea AdvancedDry Fresh roll on deodorant.  It first started with the beginning, putting the deodorant on- the liquid deodorant seems to be very thin and watery- meaning it went on and ran down.  So not cool.  I am also not sure what it means by AdvancedDry- it took longer than I had expected to dry so I could get dressed and start my busy day.

But on a more positive note- Dry Idea AdvancedDry Fresh deodorant kept me dry all day long.  It worked great even on my busiest days.  I just wish it was less messier.

What to see if Dry Idea AdvancedDry Fresh is right for you?  I was graciously given 5 coupons good for a FREE Dry Idea product.  It can be roll on, gel or aerosol.

To enter this giveaway, just comment below and let me know that you would love a chance to win:)  Super easy.  This coupon giveaway will end on 03/17/2013 and winners will be contacted on 03/18/2013.

Go here to enter the Never Let Them See You Sweat Sweepstakes.  One lucky grand prize winner will receive $500, while (10) 2nd place winners will receive a $50 prize.

Good luck:)

**Dry Idea brand provided a free sample of their Dry Idea AdvancedDry Fresh brand antiperspirant and deodorant so I could review it.  As always, all the opinions expressed here are my very own**

Living Room, Laundry Room and Kitchen Declutter pics:)

Sorry for such a long wait for the before and after pics of our Living Room and Kitchen.  I am very pleased with the way my house is coming along.  I can't get over how much room we have now that we got so much stuff out of here:)  I don't have a before picture of our Laundry Room as hubby sneakily decluttered and cleaned it- not that I am complaining:)

I want a more simpler life- more life on purpose as I like to call it.  We have found that we don't NEED a lot of possessions we thought we did.  Plus not having a lot of money, we are more intentional with the things we do buy.

Here are our before and after pics of just the decluttering parts.  We still have painting, counter and other little things to get done.
My poor unloved living room

My neat and clean living room complete with little munchkin:)
My poor poor cluttered kitchen

My beautiful spacious new kitchen:)
My now neat laundry room- thanks honey:)

Oh look, the hook I only asked him to install oh about 10 years ago- better late than never right- LOL:)
This week we are in the Master bedroom and it is coming along beautifully.  There is a room underneath all that stuff:)

What kind of cool projects did you do this week?  Are you decluttering with me?  What did you get done this week~ I would love to hear all about it:)

Purex Crystals for Baby Giveaway Winners

Sorry this post is late.  I have been feeling very yucky for a couple of days.  My allergies are running wild.  My poor nose can't decide whether it wants to run or keep me from breathing through it.  I just feel so blah. 

I took all the names of everyone who commented and wrote them on an index card.  I cut out the names, folded the pieces up really well and put them in a cup.  Little Michael picked out 3 pieces.

And the winners of a coupon good for a FREE bottle of Purex Crystals for Baby are.........

Katychick
Nicki Joseph
Kenny Hall

An email will be sent shortly to the winners.  Congrats:)

Thanks to everyone who commented.

My Decluttering Goals for the week of 02/25/2013

While I did get a lot done working on decluttering my bedroom, there is still more to be done:)  I didn't get a chance to work on it over the weekend.  So, we will attack it this week:)

Here is our plan of attack for the master bedroom this week:
~ Go through book shelf
~ Go through tubs of clothes
~ Clean off dresser and get it ready for big huge yard sale
~ Go through and clean out night stand and get it ready for yard sale
~ Clean under bed
~ Go through shelving
~ Clean out closet

If you are in need of a declutter challenge in your home- feel free to hop on in and join me in my journey to get our house uncluttered, cleaned and company ready. If you have a room in your house you want to get under control~make a plan to get it done this week. Make a list of what you need to accomplish for that 1 room. Use what available times and days you have to get the list of your projects done.

Let's see how much we can get done this week:)

Menu Plan for the week of 02/25/2013

We hope everyone had a nice, relaxing, peaceful weekend.  My plans for this weekend were to go to Lowe's to do the Build & Grow Clinic and then to work on clearing out my bedroom.  How much do you think I got done Saturday?  Welllll, none got done. 

We did go to the Lowe's Build & Grow Clinic, the boys have fun building their cool monster trucks.  Then I got to talking with a friend and well, you know when I get to talking, time just flies and I lose all track of time.  Opps:)  We got home just in time for lunch.  Then Michael and I headed out to spend my Christmas and Birthday money and to do our grocery shopping, since we have a doctor's appointment crazy early to get the staple out of little Michael's head.  It is easier to go shopping with out the little one running around.  He refuses to sit in the shopping cart- so normally he stays home with daddy:)

Here is our menu plan for this week:

Breakfast
Oatmeal with raisins
Cream of Wheat with apple slices
Pancakes
Egg Sandwiches
Applesauce Oatmeal muffins
Baked Oatmeal with apples X2

Lunch
Sandwich, popcorn and banana

Dinner
Chicken Pot Pie
Beef Stew- it was a hit the last time we had it
Shredded BBQ Chicken on bun with fruit
Scrambled eggs, sausage and fruit
Taco bean rice with green beans
Pasta Alfredo  with peas
Spaghetti with corn and homemade rolls

Snacks and desserts
Apple Slices with PB
Sliced carrots
Popcorn
Angel food cake

What yummy dishes you have planned for your family this week?

Family Fun and Fudge- oh my:)

Well, since our counters got pushed back once again ~ I really wished we knew how to replace kitchen counter tops, we could just do it ourselves, but since we don't, we wait:).  It was too cold to have a family outing, so we decided to stay indoors and have a Family Fun morning:)

We played Monopoly- oh boy, I am so tired of Monopoly, it seems that that is the only board game we have with all the pieces. 
We also played Checkers a few times and Nathan tried his hand at Chess.  I am surprised that while he may not know the names of all the chess pieces, he knows how they all move:)

The boys have wanted to make fudge for some time now.  So, we decided what the heck, let's do it:)  Everything is better with chocolate:)   We found the recipe we wanted to use based on the ingredients we had on hand and....
Chocolate Chips, Condensed milk and butter

3 minutes in the microwave~ lovely swirl

Melted, poured in foil lined pan and placed in refrigerator to chill

Several hours later- sliced and ready to devour


I was surprised the little one's didn't care for the taste so much.  I thought it was very chocolatey and yummy.  I have a LOVE for chocolate:)  All the big people thought the fudge was super delicious.

We finally got a chance to make our baked carrot experiment.  I was told to peel and slice carrots and place them on an oiled pan.  Bake them at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.  The smaller carrot slices took 20 minutes to bake.  The larger pieces took 30 minutes total to bake.
Carrots sliced and ready to bake
Baked carrots~ well what is left when I realized I needed to take a picture

I don't like to eat carrots.  I don't like the way they taste.  Everyone else with the exception of little Michael all love carrots- cooked and raw.  Not me.  I was told to try baking carrots, that they tasted like sweet potato fries- which I love.  So, we tried them and I must say- I love them.  They are so tasty.  I am surprised I didn't turn orange with the amount of carrots I ate.  But I couldn't help it- they were so yummy.  And of course, after lunch with the tasty baked carrots we ate fudge.  What a day:)

After lunch, I was getting little Michael down for a nap when Michael decided to reorganize our laundry room, which was in desperate need of some attention.  And we tag teamed the kitchen together.  Pictures coming next week, since I found the card reader under my computer desk- thanks to our lovely cat:)

Lowes Build & Grow Clinic~ 02/23/2013

Lowes will be hosting a Build & Grow Clinic on February 23, 2013 at 10am.

If you are looking for a great free activity that you can do with your kids- you should check out the Lowes Build & Grow Clinics. Little Michael and Nathan love them. They love being able to do hands on projects with our help.

This Saturday, Lowes Build and Grow Clinic will be building Grave Digger.   Now, this is something that they definitely want to build:)
 
To sign up for this Build & Grow Clinic, simply go to the Lowes Build & Grow Clinic website, which they have redone to make it more user friendly. I am loving this new website. You register all your information. Then when you visit the website to sign up for an upcoming clinic, all you have to do is sign in and check which kids you are signing up. Don't forget to print and sign the waiver. And you and your child(ren) are ready for a really cool FREE hands on project.

Once you and your child(ren) complete the project they will receive a neat patch to put on their Lowes Build & Grow apron. If this is your first clinic, your child(ren) will receive a free Lowes Build & Grow apron and goggles:) The more clinics you do, the more patches you get to put on your kids apron and they can show them off with pride:)

My Decluttering Goals for the week of 02/18/2013

Wellll, the counters got pushed back yet again :(  We were sad but we understand.  The guy coming out to replace our counters called to let me know that they were predicting 3 inches of snow in his area.  We were not sure what they were calling for in our area.  He was afraid of getting out here and the roads getting bad.  So, no new counters but one day we will have them installed. 

We were able to take our newly free Saturday and tag team our kitchen and laundry room.  Well, actually hubby surprised me by tackling the laundry room by himself and installing a hook in the laundry room that I only asked him to hang up oh about 10 years ago:)  I will share pictures of our nice clean living room, kitchen and laundry room as soon as my card reader shows back up.  It seems to have grown legs and walked off- I think I may know where it is.  Our cat has decided that he wants to sleep on top of my computer desk, which means everything on top of my computer desk gets pushed or knocked behind my computer desk.  Which means I have to crawl under my desk and see what is hiding under there:) 

I must say I am loving the way my house is coming along.  It is surprising what a little bit of motivation can do for you.  Details coming soon~ I promise:)

This week, as long as little Michael is doing well after our boo boo and trip to the Emergency Room Sunday night/Monday morning, we plan to attack the Master bedroom.  I can't wait to have a clutter free bedroom:)  Well, let me rephrase that- there is not a lot of clutter in my room but since we don't have a lot of storage areas in our home, my room becomes the storing grounds for a lot of things that we don't have homes for.  Well, for the next couple of weeks we are going to change that:)

Here is our plan of attack for the master bedroom this week:
~ Clean off changing table and get it ready for the consignment sale
~ Go through book shelf
~ Go through tubs of clothes
~ Go through stuff between bed and dresser
~ Clean off dresser and get it ready for big huge yard sale
~ Go through and clean out night stand and get it ready for yard sale
~ Clean area between bed and window
~ Clean under bed
~ Go through shelving
~ Clean out closet

If you are in need of a declutter challenge in your home- feel free to hop on in and join me in my journey to get our house uncluttered, cleaned and company ready. If you have a room in your house you want to get under control~make a plan to get it done this week. Make a list of what you need to accomplish for that 1 room. Use what available times and days you have to get the list of your projects done. 

Let's see how much we can get done this week:)

Menu Plan for the week of 02/18/2013

After an eventful evening/morning, today just seemed to drag along.  We hope that your Monday was better.  Tomorrow will be a better day- at least I am hoping that it will be- fingers crossed:)

We are very thankful that Lynn, my dad's girlfriend, cleaned out her pantry last week and blessed us with 3 boxes of food that she would not be able to use.  We can definately put it to good use:)

Here is our menu plan for this week:

Breakfast
Organic Poptarts X2
Baked Oatmeal with Apples X2
Cream of Wheat
Scrambled eggs with grits and fruit
Oatmeal

Lunch
Sandwich, popcorn and banana

Dinner
Spaghetti with peas and rolls

Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa Casserole
Tuna Casserole with green beans
Spanish Rice with corn

Snacks and desserts
Super yummy homemade PB fudge
Apple Slices
Baked Carrot sticks
Stretch Island Fruit Apple Rolls
Annie's Organic bunny fruit snacks

What yummy dishes do you have planned for your family this week?

Never a dull moment :)

Hope everyone had a pleasant and wonderful weekend.  We started out with a nice weekend and then ended it in the Emergency Room last night- oh the fun and joy:)  Little munchkin went to reach back to get his cars from daddy and ended up falling backwards right into our coffee table.  He screamed and I immediately scooped him up.  I asked him where it hurt and he pointed to his head.  I put my head on the back of his head and smooched his forehead trying to comfort my little one.  When I removed my hand, I noticed it was covered in blood- ok this is not good.  We got him cleaned up and noticed a nice size gash in his head.  Off the the Emergency room we rushed.  We arrived at 10pm and didn't even get seen until 12am.  So, not fun :(  The nurses and doctors were really sweet, we were thankful for that.  The doctor looked at his head and stated that little Michael would only need 1 staple.  Ummm what?  A staple?  That sounds painful.

The doctor reassured me that by the time little Michael knew what was going on, they would be done.  Ok- do what you need to do to fix my son.  A nice attending physician came in and cleaned the wound and attempted to put the staple in- well, lets just say that it didn't go in as it was supposed to.  I was afraid little Michael would be upset- but he didn't even move.  He was so good and laid there and let them do what they needed to do- I was so proud.  The attending told me that she needed help and went to get another doctor.  30 minutes later- she returned and had to remove the staple and tried again.  By the time she returned little Michael had fallen asleep.  It was well after midnight by then.  But this time, the staple went in no problem- yay:)

It was 1am by the time we were discharged.  Let's just say today was a very slow moving day.  Thankfully, no school today so I could sleep in- if only my body got the memo~ LOL:)

Little Michael is doing well.  He knows that there is something in the back of his head- he is just not sure what.  If you would keep my little munchkin in your prayers that he heals nicely.  This is a first for our family.  Little Micheal is the first to get a staple.  He hope to not have to go to the Emergency Room any time soon for anybody else:)

We hope that you all had a less eventful evening/morning:)

Happy Valentine's Day

I hope everyone had a fabulous Valentine's Day:) 

We didn't do anything special around here.  Since Michael was home today, he was a great help keeping the little one occupied while I attacked part of the living room and kitchen.  I am so excited with the progress I made today:)  Pictures coming soon.

While I was making dinner, I quickly mixed up a lemon cake and popped it in the oven.  I made one square cake and one round cake.  I wish I would have taken pictures of the cakes before.  Once the cakes were cooked and fully cooled, I removed them from their pans.  I placed the square cake on a piece of wax paper and turned it in the shape of a diamond.  I then cut the round cake in half and carefully placed them on each side of the diamond- making a heart shape- awww.  I then frosted the cake and it looked something like this:
I then let the boys dig in and I must say it was quite tasty:)

Did you do anything special for Valentine's Day?

January 2013 Goals Update

Wow- is it really the middle of February already?  Yikes- where is this month going?

I realized I never updated our 2013 goals for the month of January.  So, here you go:

Here are our 2013 Goals: (in no particular order)

1) To not eat out or at least to not pay out of pocket, with the exception of tips. If we want to treat the family to a meal out, we will make sure we have a gift card to cover all of us.~ Did awesome with this:)

2) Pay off 2 credit cards~ Making incredible progress with this goal and should have 2 credit cards paid off by March- yay!!

3) Not to use any of our credit cards for 2013. To pay cash for everything.~ Still doing great with this goal

4) To lower our grocery budget. Our current grocery budget is $300 month for our family of 6. Our goal is to lower that amount and to save the remainder. ~ We did great with this goal and spent $256 in January.

5) To create a monthly meal plan for our family, to use leftovers more efficiently and to make use of everything in our pantry and freezer.~ Doing great with this goal

6) Unclutter the house and become more organized:)~ So proud- we are making great progress in our living room and kitchen

7) Lose weight- I need to get motivated to lose this baby weight- my goal is to lose 20 lbs this year.~ Still going to the gym and walking on the treadmill.  I haven't lost any pounds yet but have lost 2 inches from my waist- I will take it:)

8) Morning devotions, prayer time and more bible reading~ Doing great with this goal

9) Monthly date night with hubby- whether we go out or stay at home, pop popcorn and rent a movie~ Didn't do any type of date night with hubby in January

10) To spend quality family time together. With everyones schedule and us running all over creation, I would love to spend more quality time together- no tv- us playing games, talking, enjoying each others company. I think we are going to claim Saturday's as family fun day:)~ We had a great family outing- you can read all about it here.

11) Not to use our dryer to save on electricity and lower our electricity bill~ Doing great with this- electric bill lowered by $5 from cycle.

12) To make a better effort to blog more regularly and to make a blogging schedule~Need to get better organized and actually make a blogging schedule and keep up with it.

13) To make much needed house repairs~ Counter installation coming soon:)

14) To get rid of the car just sitting in our driveway (hopefully we can sell it and make a little something) and being used as storage.~ Still working of this

15) To do 1 project a month and blog about it~ We made homemade taco seasoning and dry onion soup mix

How did you do with your goals for January?

My Decluttering Goal for the week of 02/11/2013

I feel so much better this morning after an OK night's rest.  A certain 3 yr old came and woke me up to tell me he had to go potty at 4am.  Then he climbed in my bed and went right back to sleep.  He is a toss and turn as well as kicking and stretching out kind of sleeper.  So, between daddy and little Michael, mommy gets pushed out of the bed sometimes.

But I do have some great news:)  The guy coming out to replace our counter, has an opening- yea!!!!  This Saturday.  OK, kind of short notice but we will take it.  I cannot wait to see my kitchen with my fabulous shiny new counters:)

The last 2 weeks, we have been working on the Living Room and the Kitchen.  Due to the counter installation, instead of jumping into a new room, we are going to stay right here and do a few things that need to get done before we can install the new counter.  If you don't have any major projects to accomplish and want to dive right on into decluttering a new room this week- go ahead and start swimming:)

Here are our decluttering goals for this week:

1)  Clean my computer desk- not sure why I keep ignoring this space- oops:)

2)  Rip out floor in cabinet under sink

3)  Paint wall in cabinet

4)  Clean kitchen counters

5)  Go through medicine cabinet

6)  Go through lower cabinets

7)  Pull out stove and clean behind stove

8)  Sweep and mop kitchen floor

If you are in need of a declutter challenge in your home- feel free to hop on in and join me in my journey to get our house uncluttered, cleaned and company ready. If you have a room in your house you want to get under control~make a plan to get it done this week. Make a list of what you need to accomplish for that 1 room. Use what available times and days you have to get the list of your projects done. I will update later this week and show you the progress we have made in our kitchen and hopefully our brand new counters:)

Menu Plan for the week of 02/11/2013

Whew~ today was a very busy day.  This is how my day went:

Had to get up early and get going~ we were getting our taxes done.  The lady who does our taxes is 1 & 1/2 hours away.  I got up and got ready, got Nathan up, dressed, fed, lunch packed and ready for school only to realize that his moon tracker experiment was due today and wasn't finished all the way.  We only missed 3 days.  So, I had to look them up real quickly.  Thanks to the clouds, we have not been able to see the moon at all this past week and have had to use the weather channel to see what moon phase we are in.  In doing all this, Nathan misses his bus.  We take him to school making us leaving later than we had hoped.  We arrive at Linda's to have our taxes done.  Done:)  We normally don't get our taxes done this early but we have some plans for our refund and it involves a possible house:)  Will explain later.  We then leave and go grocery shopping.  We get home, put our groceries away and eat a light lunch.  Little one doesn't want to take a nap and finally passes out right about the time Nathan and Chris get home from school.  So, no hope for me to lay down.  Wow- look at the time- time to make dinner.  Now, I cannot figure out where in the world this headache has come from.  Time to blog our menu plan, try to get little one to bed and hopefully get a nice peaceful full night's rest:)

Here is our menu plan for this week:

Breakfast
Baked Oatmeal with apples X2
Oatmeal with raisins X2
Homemade Cinnamon Buns for Valentine's Day
Cereal- thanks to Lynn
Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Lunch
Sandwich, popcorn and banana

Dinner
Beef Stew
Shredded BBQ Chicken with potato wedges and fruit
Taco bean rice with green beans
Chocolate Chip pancakes with fruit
Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa Casserole
Tuna Casserole with peas
Spaghetti with homemade rolls and peas

Snacks and desserts
Homemade hot chocolate
Homemade PB Fudge
Apple slices with PB
Carrots

What kind of yummy treats do you have planned this week for you and your family?  Off to bed- see you tomorrow.  Have a blessed night:)
