It’s gratifying to me when I can use my small space on the internet to share information about something I believe so wholeheartedly in. My aunt suffered terribly during chemo and still does. I am so glad there are oganizations out there like Look Good, Feel Better helping women through this hard time.

In honor of Earth Day, I am happy to be one of the sponsored participants in Mighty Nest’s Healthy Home Makeover.
Founded by two parents, MightyNest is an online store, resource center, and community dedicated to helping parents create healthy, safe homes. Their mission is to give families the ability to research, get advice, and buy natural, non-toxic products all in one place.
From kitchenware to skin care, MightyNest‘s safety experts have built the web’s broadest selection of products that are free from known toxic ingredients such as BPA, PVC, Phthalates, Lead, Melamine, Formaldehyde, Parabens, and more.
Their goal is to make people feel empowered to make changes in their lives, whether large or small.
We try to lead a pretty “green” lifestyle here in the Guavalicious Household. But there is always room for improvement! I used the Mighty Nest Healthy Home Makeover board as a jumping point for my own Pinterest board. Some of the things I want to add are cast iron pans and dryer balls. I also added a few of our longtime favorites like stackable glass bowls and the Plan Toy Solid Wood Drum.

Hi lovely internet friends!
It’s Sunday Night and I am enjoying a post coma food and drink due to Supper Club.
Supper Club if a group of 9 couples where we get together once a month (one group of four couples, one group of five) and share a meal together. No potluck, no sharing, the host couple does all. So twice a year we get to conceive a meal and cocktails and ten months of the year we get to enjoy a free evening of good food, drinks, and company. It’s win/win.
It was the perfect end to a busy weekend full of the EPIC GARAGE SALE we hosted. After it ended Saturday, we cleaned out our garage. And then I went to bed at nine.
This Sunday should have been full of the lazy but instead it was full of Waffle house breakfasts and Girl Scout meeting where I talked about gardening and Earth Day. Often at these things I am expecting someone to bust me at impersonating a responsible adult. But even though I have been asked to leave the PTA, no one has stopped me yet.
So I wind down my weekend by browsing the Minted site, purveyors of business cards, stationary, art prints, and graduation announcements. They emailed me asking if I would like a credit to their site and I screamed in internet speak YES! I am such a paper nerd.
Tonight I go to sleep dreaming of lamb lasagna, garage sale pedicure money, the world’s fanciest business cards, and patches for rainbow spotting. I hope your dreams are as nice as mine.
I know everyone says that they are “that mom” but folks, I really am.
Everyone says kids change you. And mine definitely changed me. They made me care way less about what people thought of me. And made me care way less about what other people are doing. Why waste your time concentrating on other people’s lives? Tattoos aren’t my bag, but if they were I would have “F@3K Them” tattooed on my wrist as a reminder that it matters very little what other people think of me and how I am raising my kids. In the end, I know that they are happy, healthy, and loved.
My Strong Mom Manifesto is what was written on the wall of my ECFE classroom in Minnesota.
YOU ARE THE BEST PARENT FOR YOUR CHILD
The day you believe that is the day you are set free from the worry.
Today, I am encouraging you, yes you, to go to Strong Moms Empower and take the pledge.
Not a mom? Pledge to support us “that mom”s who need a friendly smile!
