Vacation Time!!

We are headed to the beach for a little fun in the sun. I am so excited to get out of town and just relax and enjoy my family. My kids are so excited they could barely go to sleep last night. However, it could have been all the heavy storms and the threat of tornadoes that did it too. I'll be back next Saturday so you guys have a great week and I'll check in periodically.

Anchors Away

As soon as I saw these nautical themed items I thought of so many of you out there. I really like the anchor tote. I can almost see myself carrying this to the beach next week with my book or magazine. You can find each of the items above at Pears and Bears.

8-Year Old Swallows 30 Magnets and Steel Balls

It is amazing that this little girl is still alive. Apparently she swallowed 10 magnets and 20 steel balls. The parts came from her Magnetix set. The doctors told her family that it looked like there were 8 gunshot or holes from a stabbing in her intestines.

I'm sure many of you have Magnetix in your home, as do we, I just never thought I had to worry about my older children swallowing the parts. I have heard of very young children dying from swallowing Magnetix so we always made sure to pick up the parts before our 2 year old came into the room. You can read the whole story here.

Mrs. Meyer's At Target

My sister recently gave me some Mrs Meyer's counter spray. I had never tried it before so I was really excited. I fell in love with it the 1st time I used it. I can clean my counters in the kitchen and you can smell it all the way upstairs. The fragrance I have is geranium. However, my mom and sister swear by the basil scent.
The bad thing about falling in love with Mrs. Meyer's was that I couldn't find it anywhere in
OKC. I was at Target yesterday looking to see what new and exciting things were there and what did I see, but Mrs. Meyer's. They had everything, counter spray, soap, all-purpose cleaner, and even the shower cleaner. I was so excited. It is the little things in life that make me happy.
