As a Mom to two daughters, I have to say I spend a lot of time with my hands tangled in hair. Washing hair, brushing hair, styling hair, and playing with their hair whenever I get the chance. This Summer my daughters finally decided to cut their waist length hair for a cuter, shorter, cooler- older girl hair do.Read More

When I was a kid, I despised polishing the furniture. It was the chore that I absolutely hated the most! Now, as an adult it is still my least favorite chore. The only difference now is that I get to choose when I clean and what I use to clean. I very strongly believe in the saying, "Messy Houses means Happy Kids." I am a busy Mom and I wear a lot of different hats. Between working, blogging, volunteering, homework and cooking... cleaning is definitely at the bottom of my list.
This is a typical day in my house, my daughter reading a book and a cat sitting on the furniture. As you can imagine, there is always pet dander, dust and messy fingerprints pretty much everywhere. How is a Mom supposed to keep up with it all? A cleaner that can be used in every single room in the house is definitely helpful.
Can you see the difference? It's a little embarrassing that I was able to find something so covered in dust that it made for such a good "before" picture. But, as I said before I am a busy Mom and sometimes we are too busy having fun and making memories to notice the dust covering up the furniture in the corner.
But life is all about balance, so when we're done having fun and I find a moment to clean, at least I get to use the cleaner that I choose, Pledge® Multi Surface Antibacterial Everyday Cleaner makes me feel good about cleaning when I have to.

I thought I had an extra day before the Back to School madness, but I was wrong. My girls start school TOMORROW! I am so glad I called to ask because, we would've been a day late. With my oldest daughter going into all day kindergarten, I am very excited to start packing lunches for her. I knew I wanted to do something fun and different and hopefully make the transition into kindergarten nice and easy. It's all about balance in our lunches, I love for my girls to drink in the goodness with NESTLÉ® JUICY JUICE® and to add a little surprise I thought it would be nice to serve up smiles with a snack size BUTTERFINGER® or NESTLE® CRUNCH®! This is #MyGoodLife!
So here are some of my fun lunch ideas! First of all, I wanted to write my daughter a note. She can't read much yet, so the notes are simple but special. I thought what a better way to surprise her than to wrap the note around her
box. (This way, I know she'll see it for sure!)
I also wanted to add variety. Not just a sandwich and chips. I took a cookie cutter to a slice of cheese and made fun shapes for her to look at before she eats them. Of course, a serving of fruit is a must! Luckily my daughter isn't very picky when it comes to lunches which means I have room to experiment! Stay tuned for more ideas in another post.
I think it's a great idea to add a little treat like a snack size BUTTERFINGER® or NESTLE® CRUNCH®! I know when my girls are at home, I always give them a little sugary snack to help give them a little energy boost. This works for us, hopefully, it'll help with her teacher.
These snack containers are AMAZING! The possibilities are endless!
How fun is this right? Although, I may have set myself up for trouble, because I know if one day I forget a note, I will never hear the end of it.
Of course, I found all of these ingredients at my local
with great deals.
Tell me: What kinds of fun stuff do you do to make the first day of school special?
