FROZEN in Wisconsin

Its that time of year when the temps drop below 0 and the wind chill makes it feel bitter.  In Wisconsin we always get wind chill advisories and tonight is one of the nights where you are under lots of blankets and wish you had a fireplace.  The low for tonight is -17 and with the wind chill it might feel like -30!!!  30below 0 thats when you have to pack a blanket in the car just in case you have a car issue, which many cars in WI are probably having to get a jump today and tomorrow.  I have a subbing job tomorrow and I am kinda hoping they have a late start!  :)  Many schools have to consider the number of kids who wait outside for the bus.  If you have skin uncovered you can get frost bite in just a matter of minutes.  I remember a couple 4 years ago we had wind chill's that were -50 degrees!  It gives families a reason to stay in and do things indoors, games, movies, baking, cleaning!

Anyone else in a deep freeze?  What are you doing inside to stay busy?

Today we are hanging wash (it puts moisture in the air inside) and baking, keeping the house warm! We may also do some sewing of simple things...but I'm guessing that my active boy will need to do something different soon! We have a Sweatin' to the Oldies video that he likes to do - it cracks me up when he imitates the moves and tries to make up some of his own! He likes the music and hopping around in general =) Pretty much any aerobics type of program, tape or DVD gets us moving and grooving! Family dance party!!!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
