Productive Day

I thought I'd put up a quick blog for the day. I'm relaxing watching Harry Potter, yes I know I'm a nerd. I took advantage of some unexpected motivation and cleaned my butt off today. The past week I've been lacking motivation to clean. So I decided to reread a book. Happy Housewives. Photobucket It's a really great book and Darla is a wonderful person. The first time I read the book was a year ago. I was totally shocked at how much her book motivated me to really focus on my kids, husband and my home. She also has a website, click on badge under my pictures if you want to check it out.

Ok back to the cleaning my butt off part. Instead of using my regular "green" cleaning supplies, I decided to mix vinegar and water with some lemon juice to help the vinegar smell. I've used vinegar before on my floors and laundry but for some reason I hadn't gotten around to using it as an all purpose cleaner. I'm officially in love with it. My kitchen is so sparkly and shiny right now. I cleaned everything with it. Once I started I just couldn't stop. Tomorrow I'm going to go to this cute little gift store that sells a ton of natural and organic products and pick up some Essential Oils. Try and make the vinegar cleaner smell prettier. :)

Alright ladies, I'm going to make my hubby's lunch for tomorrow then head to bed. Actually I'll probably wait till Harry Potter is over. Which is weird considering I watch it everyday. :P
