I’ve been at stay at home wife/mom for about a year and a half now. I must admit when I started this new chapter in our lives I thought since I was no longer working I would have all the time in the world to manage and maintain a clean, 100% of the time, house. Unfortunately, I realized quickly I was oh so wrong. 

What usually ended up happening is I couldn’t remember when I had cleaned what and something like dusting would get skipped for weeks until I sneezed and noticed it was snowing on the bookshelf. I needed some accountability and a routine. So I created this printable for basic daily cleaning chores day by day. And to make it even more user friendly….they are cleaning alliterations that match the day of the week. You know like, clean towels, tubs, and toilets on Tuesdays! I suppose it is the former teacher in me.

While a lot of these chores are spread out over the week, there are still daily tasks that must be accomplished each day to manage a tidy house. Most of those daily tasks happen in the kitchen…it’s the heart of every home after all.

I wanted to share with you one simple change I made in our kitchen that has made a big difference. In the past I had been super frustrated with our dishwasher detergent because it seemed our glasses always had water stains. For a while I blamed it on our water. However, I was at WalMart and noticed their Rollback prices for FINISH All in 1 Powerball tablets. I decided to give them a try.

I have been super pleased with the results! No more water spots & always sparkly clean dishes. Just look how clear that glass is! It’s truly the best dishwasher detergent.

Chickadee is even excited about clean dishes! I can’t wait until she can help load and unload :o)

Do please note that this detergent it a tablet, and like all cleaners, please keep it out of reach for little exploring hands.

You can find FINISH detergent and it’s Rollback price on the cleaning aisle at Walmart through October.

His Steadfast Love Printable

The other week at church we sang the song His Steadfast Love. I’m not sure that is the title, so if you it’s something different let me know. It comes from Lamentations and while listening to it that Sunday morning it really struck a cord with me. Some of my favorite songs come right out of scripture. I’ve been singing it to Chickadee a lot lately and decided to make it in to a printable.

I printed it out and have it right by my bed. What a great way to start each day…being reminded that God’s mercies are new every morning and his love steadfast. So thankful we serve a faithful God!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Baptism Scripture Printable

DSC_0141a

Sunday was a special day for our family. Our little Chickadee was baptized. She was dressed in her great great grandfather’s, 120+ years old, christening gown as we stood on in front of family, friends, and our congregation and promised to always point our baby girl to Jesus. She is such a blessing and we can’t wait to see how God uses her to change the world!

We were lucky to have family in town to celebrate our little one as well!

As part of our baptism preparation the church asked us to choose a bible verse to represent the occasion. We decided on Philippians 1:9-11

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.

I created a printable for Chickadee’s nursery and wanted to share it with you!

You can see it printed a little darker than it appears. Not sure if that was just my printer or what but, still love how it turned out.

Enjoy!

Proud to be an American Printable

proud to be an American printable framed

The lyrics to Proud to be an American by Lee Greenwood will forever be one of my favorite patriotic songs. I can’t seem to conjure the memory if when I first heard these lyrics, but they almost always bring me to tears. We are fortunate to live in a place where our service men and women defend our country, our families , and our lives with honor. They make me proud and thankful to be an American. Happy 4th of July & thank you to those whose serve our country along with your families who sacrifice as well to allow you to protect not only them, but all of us!

If you are a last minute decorator like myself and would like to put up this 8×10 Proud to be an American printable before the 4th gets here on Thursday, you can download and print it below!
