Awful Beautiful Life

I love this crazy, tragic, sometimes almost magic, awful beautiful life…

Clean Mah House! April 29, 2009

Filed under: Miscellaneous — Sara @ 12:53 pm

I don’t think anyone actually likes cleaning their house. I definitely don’t, but I DO like the end result, even if it only lasts for a few hours once the kids and cats take over again. I decided to sell out and enter this giveaway from Alice for a free house cleaning, mostly because I need a freaking break.

The one cleaning product I use every week, if not every day, is Clorox wipes.  Who doesn’t love those things?  They are so easy and can clean up almost anything the kids/cats/husband throw at me.  Maybe I’ll take them outside with a margarita and wipe down our patio furniture while Merry Maids clean my house… 🙂


Mother’s Day April 14, 2009

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. I decided to enter my mom in Victoria’s Secret’s Love You Mom! contest because she is absolutely the most selfless and giving person I know. She deserves everything they are giving away and more for what she’s given up and given to us over the years. I’d really appreciate it if you would vote for her and spread the word!  Winners are essentially chosen by who has the most votes.  You can also vote every 10 hours.  The contest ends May 7th.

Thanks for your support!

Redemption April 1, 2009

We recently got a flip and I’ve been abusing it like any good mom would.  I thought I would share what Evie’s been doing to try to redeem herself since she read my last post.

She likes peek-a-boo and is getting great at multi-tasking like her mommy (hiccupping and laughing at the same time isn’t easy!).

AND, she rolled over for the first time today! (She had to pause mid-roll to catch one last glimpse of that cute baby in the mirror…)
