Purex No Sort for Colors

The Purex brand provided me with a sample in exchange for a product review. All opinions expressed are my own.

As a busy mom, I want laundry to be as quick and painless as possible. When you’re tired, you just want to toss clothes into the washer and be done with it. Purex No Sort for Colors detergent has changed the rules on sorting laundry!

With regular detergent, dyes can bleed onto other fabrics in wash. With Purex No Sort for Colors, the detergent traps loose dyes and reduces color bleeding accidents.


White Matcha Tea by Red Leaf Tea

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


I’m not a tea drinker, but my husband is. Tom will try just about any kind of tea (at least once). He’s had white tea before, so I figured this would be okay by his standards. Apparently it’s a rare, high grade tea with no additives or preservatives.

3rd Birthday: Ninja Party

Charlie’s 3rd birthday is less than 2 weeks away! I still can’t believe my little boy is going to be 3! At his request, he’s having a Ninja Party. Ninjago is very popular right now, but he picked a regular Ninja party. While looking for Ninja invites, I found a Ninja image at Rook no. 17 and I decided to make my own.

This was super simple to make using PicMonkey. If you’re not familiar with PicMonkey, go play around with it now! You can do so much for free, but if you decide to upgrade, it’s only $33/month.

I then added the date, time, location, and RSVP information.

Using HP Photo Card Paper, I printed these out at home on 5x7 cards and off they went!

Stay tuned for all our Ninja Birthday Party fun: Games/Activities, Food, Goodie Bags, Decorations!

My 10 Most Binge-worthy Shows on Netflix Right Now

I have a friend that is having surgery next week. She’ll be in the hospital for a few days, so she recently asked for suggestions of what to watch on Netflix. This made me think of the end of my pregnancy with Owen. I really went crazy on Netflix, but that’s not hard to do with all the awesome shows (new & old) that are on there.

Pretty Little Liars

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

The Secret Life of the American Teenager

Drop Dead Diva


Breaking Bad


Burn Notice

One Tree Hill

The Walking Dead

Yes, I realize that this is a rather wide range of shows, but I love them all. If you start watching any of these, chances are you’ll get sucked in and lose hours of your day (or week).
