Some fantastic ideas shared this past week! Check it out!
 Crayola 8ct Dry Erase Crayons Large Size
  • Ginger loves no-spill bubbles, which I have to agree are a pretty fabulous idea, especially after one of the girls spilled a bottle of colored bubbles all over herself at a playdate recently.Yellow goo everywhere! (good thing it was a bath night). 

  • Affton tells us all about how much her kiddos love Kindermusik---she loves it so much she's becoming a teacher! Awesome! Good luck with your first up-coming class, Affton!

Thank you, thank you, everyone for sharing your great ideas here!
It was a year ago this week that we kicked off Mama Loves. Thank you, everyone, for showing up and contributing ideas----such a great community here!

So, good morning afternoon. We've had company, and I didn't do a better time of planning ahead.


Awhile back I told you about how much I love our dryerballs from Nellie's Naturals. After I raved about them here, I contacted the company, just to let them know how much I liked their product. They then sent me some Nellie's Laundry Soda to try.

 Laundry Soda (50 Load)

 Now, I've told you that I make my own laundry detergent, so it took me awhile to actually give this a whirl, but I'm glad I did.

I like that it is small, and doesn't take much to clean an entire load---the scoop needed, is really small.

I also love that it's completely dye and fragrance-free. Even people with the most sensitive skin can use it.

What I love most is that it does a great job of cleaning cloth diapers, while leaving no residue behind. Yay! Definitely a product I can get behind!
Okay, first thing's first.

A winner!

The winner of one of our most favorite books, The Pout-Pout Fish is Krista D. from Life on the Gravelly Road. Yay! Congrats, Krista! Could you email me the address you'd like it mailed to, please? (

And---now on to our next giveaway!

This gal loves a good workout, and I really, really love hair bands that don't slide out of my hair while I'm working up a good sweat! Sweaty Bands hold the hair out of my face, don't slip out of my hair, and they come in lots of great styles.

Just so happens that I have an extra one of these to giveaway to one of you! It's white with a bit of sparkle. Here's a picture:

I wish I loved to exercise but alas, I haven't developed that love yet. If I have to sweat, I do it by digging in the dirt of my garden.

We are loving garden goodness at our house this week!

I prefer to go running if I'm going to get sweaty... Still working out how to fit into our schedule since I prefer to run gravel roads which are not stroller friendly.

I love to play soccer! And I'm growing my bangs out so this would be perfect for my games.

I love to sweat and get it ALL out there, if you know what I mean. Then, I take a nice hot shower. My day is so much better if I start out with a sweaty workout then shower.
Lately I've been doing Jillian Michaels 30 day shred on DVD because it's just not possible for me to leave the house.

I know you love these and have been thinking about getting one lately! So...quite timely that I read your post! ha Running (and I use that term loosely) is how I mostly sweat. Ironically, it was during my last run that I thought of these bands. :)

I left a link, except I wasn't paying attention and forgot to link it to the blog post I did on my 'shampoo' and 'conditioner' so you can delete the the link since it just goes to my blog home instead of the blog post. = FAIL. :) It happens.
