    How to Choose Your “One Little Word”

    my one little word

    Back in January, I sat down to create my yearly vision board with my bestie Vanessa. This year I opted to create mine in my planner since I knew I would look at it if not every day, at least weekly. I wanted it to be in a place where I would have a constant reminder of where I wanted my life to be by the end of 2017. I had also seen a lot of my fellow planner babes talking about their “one little word” for the year. I looked into it some more and learned it was a tradition Ali Edwards started for herself and it has now grown into something even bigger!

    The idea, in a nutshell, is you choose “one little word” and that word becomes your daily focus. Everything you do should reflect this word, daily.  I took a look at my vision board and decided the only way I was going to reach these goals was to “apply” myself. And that was it, APPLY, was my one little word.

    A single word can be a powerful thing. It can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything. It can be sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow. – Ali Edwards

    It’s now the beginning of July and we are officially past the half-way mark for the year! Woohoo! We’ve made it! I felt it was time to check in with myself and see how much progress I’ve made with “APPLYING” myself in order to reach my goals. And this is where I’m at with everything.

    How to Clean Stainless Steel Appliances: 4 Steps

    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 Clean All My Vents in 3 Easy Steps

    I have been on this “spring cleaning” kick for the last two weeks or so. Keeping a house clean is a ton of work.  And to think I dream of having a bigger house! Well, that “bigger house” would have to come with a cleaning service because, ay yai yai! I didn’t realize all the tiny little things you forget need a good cleaning every once in a while, like your ceiling and floor air vents! These can get pretty dusty and grimy. If you or your kids have allergies you especially, don’t need any extra dust lying around. Plus, filthy air vents can be a major eyesore.
