because behaving is boring

Tag Archives: Spring

My child loves to watch Grav3YardGirl‘s Does This Thing Really Work? videos on YouTube. When he’s feeling sleepy or in need of a cuddle, he’ll climb into my lap and ask, “Mommy, can we watch a Bunny video?”

It was one of these videos that introduced us to the idea of Candylicious edible bubbles. A whole five seconds into that video, he was telling me he wanted grape flavor.

It took me a while to find them, but I tracked the bubble machine down on Amazon and even found some refill kits.

I was skeptical, even after watching Bunny’s review…But this thing is actually pretty great! We spent an hour or so blowing cherry bubbles all over the back yard, and I managed to catch a few…they actually DO taste just like cherry! O’s strategy was to stick his face right in front of the machine, and he caught a lot of bubbles, but he didn’t like getting the bubble solution all over his face.

You get two packets of bubble solution with the machine (cherry and grape), and refills are available in packs of three flavors. The packet of cherry lasted a lot longer than I thought it would, and we even got a little more mileage out of it by pouring a little water in at the end.

I’m not sure if you’re supposed to do that. Maybe don’t be like me.

The machine takes 4 AA batteries and you’ll need a little screwdriver to get the back panel off. I picked up an eyeglass repair kit that’s super handy for these things.

I love this thing. As long as it holds up, I can see it providing hours of summer fun for my boy. In fact, I may not have to make a dessert for the rest of the summer. Dinner’s over? Go outside and play with your bubble machine!

Just don’t drink the bubble solution…I’m pretty sure it says specifically not to on the box.

You can order one of your own by clicking here. Or, just check out the different flavors and tell me which one you’d like to try!

Can you guys believe it’s March already?! Spring is so, so close… I think here we’re going to have a coldish weekend, but temps are steadily rising. I’m so excited for spring that yesterday, I bought O a little bat and baseball set…So basically, expect a post in the near future about how I got beaned in the eye by my mini Babe Ruth.

Signs of spring have been everywhere…Including my mailbox! I was really excited about my Ipsy bag this month, and so far everything has been a big hit. Check out the video for the full scoop:

As always, I want to know what you got in your Ipsy bag! Let me know in the comments. I was a little sad that I didn’t get the Living Proof dry shampoo. If you got it (or if you’ve tried it), let me know what you think of it.

Don’t have an Ipsy subscription, but want to know more? Click here to fill out your beauty quiz and get started. It’s a heck of a lot more fun than some of the other monthly visitors we ladies get!

Happy Sunday!

I don’t know about everyone else but I am in love with the beautiful weather we had today. The BF and I took O for his first visit to the best local ice cream stand (he’s still too little for a milkshake but mama and daddy aren’t) and then drove around visiting family. I adore days like today.

We’ve also been doing some spring cleaning this weekend. I turned to Pinterest for some good deep cleaning tips to make my job easier. I found this tip for refreshing towels a while ago… what better time to give it a shot?

If you have funky towels (or even if you don’t) you should totally try this. I ended up collecting all of my towels and washcloths (even the clean ones) to give them the baking soda and vinegar treatment. They come out smelling super fresh (not vinegary at all) and they really are more absorbent. Sure, this is a bit more time consuming since you run them through two wash cycles, but it’s totally worth it. I think I’ll do this once a month from now on.

I would recommend timing this chore with your shower so you can use one of your towels fresh out of the dryer. It’s Heaven. Fluffy, warm, fresh-smelling Heaven.

**I originally wanted to title this post Fresh to Death but I think I’m far too white to say such things.
