Table Dilemma's

I am too embarrassed to actually take a picture of my dining room table to show you how icky and dirty it can get with 2 kids!   Some of you could probably agree along with me on your own dining room table!   

Some days I look at it and think have I ever cleaned this table off!   Don't worry I absolutely do clean my table and often but each and every day my table gets so messy from food to crafts to who knows what else.   My table is a typical wood table and I never have covered the wood but I am considering getting a table runner or maybe even a linen table cloth.  I am in the need for some change and a room can be transformed with adding a little color by simple tricks such as a placemat, table runner, or tablecloth.   

Yes, the hope would be keep my kids projects off of the dining room table and help keep me motivated to keep it clean.   I have been making my kids have more responsibilities by clearing the table and washing it too which helps a lot.  

I am in awe of the simplicity of the above table runner and you can find lovely designs like this at The White Company.  It is elegant in white and the simple design with flowers is beautiful and would contrast great with my dark wood table.   I think it would add so much class to my table but since I have never had a table runner before what do I need to know and how do I know what size to get.   

Follow these great steps:

1.  Measure your table- the common theme is your table runner should measure one-third the width of your table.  

2. Table runners go directly in the center of the table.  

3. Find a centerpiece to add more dimension to your table and bring out the beauty of the table runner.

4.  You can use a table runner with or without a tablecloth.

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,
