My Sweet C and I made homemade laundry detergent the other night and since then I’ve tried my hardest not to just pull everything out of the closets and rewash them in it because this stuff is amazing! It is gentle and smells fresh and clean.

Homemade Laundry Detergent


1 cup Borax [$3.38 @ Wal-Mart]

 1 cup Washing Soda [$3.24 @ Wal-Mart]

1 bar Ivory soap, grated [$1.24 for 3 bars @ Wal-mart]

Mix it up and transfer to an air tight container

Add 1 tablespoon to each load [I have a HE front-load, so I put the powder in the drawer since water will shoot it out at the right time]

We also read that white vinegar is a GREAT substitute for fabric softener, so I pulled a partially used bottle out of the spice cabinet and added a few drops of Island Colada oil from Bath and Body Works to make it smell refreshing. [You do not have to use the oil, some how the white vinegar smell does not stay on the clothes, they just smell clean.] I have still used my remaining dryer sheets, talk about super soft towels and clothing!

Total Cost $7.86

I am not sure how many loads this will get us through, but it looks like it’ll last us a long time before we have to grate up another bar of Ivory soap!

Have you made any natural products that you have been pleasantly surprised with? Do tell!

06.07.08 Wedding4th Anniversary

H Fam 2008


Four years ago, today, I married the most handsome and sincere man and most awesome and intellectual daughter God could have ever given me. I am blessed beyond all means, only He truly knows my abundance.

To my husband: I love you. I could write more words, but they would be lesser than the three already written.

To my daughter: You rock, I miss you every day you are not with Daddy and Me.

To Me: Keep on keeping on girl, God is watching when no one else is, all glory to HIM.

To My Parents: Happy 32nd Anniversary to you! <3

Back in December 2010, my Sweet C and I stayed up WAY past our bedtime to try and catch a glimpse of the 2010 full lunar eclipse. It was 3am and cloudy in when the mid eclipse would have been in view in our neck of the woods. We tried to get on the roof to see if the trees were just in the way and we even tried driving down the freeway in our jammies, away from the trees, to see if the clouds broke to see the orange moon… but we were sent to the computer to watch the live NASA feed. Needless to say, we weren’t worth much the next day, but we had fun exploring and listening to the live NASA feed and people’s responses from all around the world would could actually see the eclipse.

I know this is REALLY short notice, but tonight is a once in a lifetime [if you were born after 2004] event in which Venus will pass in front of/over the face of the sun beginning at 4:45 pm central.

Click HERE for more info and the live feed.

Please don’t stare at the sun! Help your kids make their own pinhole camera’s  to view the transit safely. You are also able to watch the live stream on NASA.

And remember kids: My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas. [Mars, Venus, Earth, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, the planet formerly known as Pluto]

Enjoy! I would love to know how you and your kids view this event. My Sweet C isn’t here tonight, so I will be sending her a text shortly to let her know how to share the event with her mom and brothers!

Zaycon Bulk Meat Events

Time for another round in our area by Zaycon Foods, have you tried them out yet? If not, you should definitely call your friends to see if they want to go in with you, you will not be sorry!

I hit them up for 40 pounds whole chicken breasts when they were here in November and let me tell you, I was shocked, surprised and SUPER happy with my decision to give them a try. I shared the cost of the chicken with my Mom, so the price tag wasn’t too killer with someone to go in half… I think having 20# of chicken is quite enough for a family of 2.5. The boneless skinless chicken breasts are 100% natural and come from local southern and midwest states; they are cleaned up and placed in several unsealed bags, which once reaching 40# they are placed in one gigantic sealed bag and loaded up in super heavy duty cardboard boxes.

I have never purchased the fish or shrimp, so I cannot give a shout out to any of these products. However, I was watching Giada at Home a while back and watched her make this recipe and made me seriously consider putting in an order!

The Zaycon team is so efficient, you don’t even have to get out of you car or truck to pick up your purchases, they walk up with your order, put it where you ask and off you go to seal seal seal.

Saturday, June 23 [Orders must be placed by 6/18/12, Chicken SELLS OUT quick]

  • Chicken Breasts $1.79/lb [40# units] Fresh Boneless Skinless
  • Frozen Alaskan True Cod Fillets $5.29/lb [20# units]
  • White Shrimp $6.39/lb [20# units] Cook, Peeled & Deveined. (31/40 count per pound)

Check out Zaycon Foods here. I bet there is an event close to you, they are expanding their reach as the word gets out about their products.
