    If you have stainless steel appliances and children, you probably have fingerprints all over them. Am I right? I’m sharing how I keep my appliances kid-print free.

    I’ve never owned stainless steel appliances until we bought our home. And boy is it hard to keep them clean! Especially with a little one around. The first time I cleaned it I used a damp lint-free cloth. Then, it looked like this, smear city. There were streaks everywhere. It looked worse than when I started.

    Of course, our kids come and place their cute, but print-making, hands in places where they really don’t need to place them. And we get this. Hand-print city!

    I used to be the queen of sinus infections until I discovered the benefits of a neti pot and coconut oil. This is the relief all allergy sufferers need.

    WHO KNEW COCONUT OIL WAS THE CURE?

    When I turned 23, I was caught off guard with painful sinus infections because I never had sinus issues as a kid/teen. Imagine my surprise when I was in so much pain and literally bed ridden for three days! During pregnancy, I had zero sinus infections. Even after pregnancy, my number of sinus infections lowered tremendously. I was relieved. But one day it crept up on me again.

    I began looking into other options to get rid of the congestion. I started seeing search results for Coconut Oil. Turns out it’s great for nasal congestion and works as an inflammatory among other things.

    How I Use My Happy Planner

    If you know me at all you know I’m a planner nerd. My favorite planner is The Happy Planner by Me and My Big Ideas. It keeps my life on track as best as humanly possible. I want to share how I use it and why I love it so much.

    I’ve always loved when the start of school came around because it meant shopping for a new planner and school supplies (I’m also a pen addict)! After grad school, I didn’t want to see a notebook or planner if it saved my life! Then I had a baby and life changed. It changed a lot! Life had me all whacked out. I wasn’t used to being “that Monique”. I had “mommy brain”, bad! Mommy brain is real, I don’t care what anyone says. I knew I needed to get organized the day I took my daughter to the doctor’s office and it wasn’t even the right date for her appointment. Can we say mommy fail?! I was over wasting time and feeling like a total mess. Planning helps me in a lot of ways and this is how I do it.
