New ATTITUDE ® by Bio Spectra

I know you have seen me complain on here about Abigail’s allergies, for quite some time now. We have to keep epipens (Epinephrine autoinjector) on hand at all times. We also have to keep benadryl on hand at all times. If Abby brushes against someone who uses certain dryer sheets in their laundry, she breaks out instantly. My brother picked her up one time and before he had a chance to put her down she was one big welt (dryer sheets). She used to frighten me silly if I took her outside. If the grass touched her skin, she would break out in welts. I had make sure she was completely covered and when I took off her clothes, I had to make sure the outside of them did not touch her skin. Her allergies can be frustrating sometimes but it was the hand she was dealt and we do our best to deal with it. I am happy to say that she is doing better with some of her allergies. I’ve tried a couple of new baby laundry detergents and one brand in particular really stands out. ATTITUDE ® by Bio Spectra.

ATTITUDE laundry detergent and fabric softener

Because Abby is doing better with laundry detergents, I decided I wanted to try an Attitude bundle; ATTITUDE laundry detergent and fabric softener – pear nectar. I felt pretty confident that she wouldn’t have a reaction to the laundry detergent and fabric softener, after reading the feature of it which I have included in a screen shot for those of you that are looking for a safe baby laundry combo. Both the detergent and the fabric softener are hypoallergenic. And SAFE!

Attitude

I really like the suds the laundry detergent produces. I want to see bubbly when I do laundry, otherwise, I feel like my clothes are not getting the clean I want them to. Especially with the kids clothes. They are covered in dirt when they come indoors. Georgia clay is so hard to get out of clothes, so again, I love that the laundry detergent bubbles up nicely. It is clear in color and I took some photos to show what it looks like and how well it works. And my what a lovely scent. Please note, I used less than a quarter of a cap and added some water. Just adding the water made the detergent bubble up nicely. It rinses clean and clear and I’m really pleased with the way it cleans.

A little demo for you…

The fabric softener is milky white in color and smells as delightful as the detergent does. I used one capful in Abby’s laundry which was a medium load and her clothes are truly soft. I was pleasantly surprised and she’s happy that her clothes are NOT “scratchy” as she calls them.

Product Review

This bundle has given me a new attitude about the kids (and especially Abby’s) laundry.

New love in my life

The new love in my life is not the guy who showed up on a first date to ask me if I knew how to remove a virus on his computer that he got from looking at p..o..r..n.. .. “gosh darn it a guy can’t even look at p..o..r..n.. without getting a virus….” Now say that with a Georgia accent. Say it again. Nope. It’s not him.

It’s also not the “aggressive” uniformed individual who I finally broke down and let come to a cookout for two reasons; 1. I’d be surrounded by friends who would make sure he kept his 20 hands to himself 2. It would get him off my back and I wouldn’t have to worry about being pulled over every-time I drove through town. After arriving with a suitcase and handcuffs which he took out to show everyone, he was escorted to the door wearing the with visions of a bloomin onion dancing in my head*. The one who ordered his meal and told the server to bring an extra plate so he could give me one of his “poke chops.” I do have to give him credit for giving me a sliver of his baked sweet potato too. Wasn’t that “sweet” of him?! It’s not him. no. it’s. not.

It’s not the big spender who took me to Pizza Hut and used coupons to pay for more than half of the meal; although I should have asked him for coupon advice. I would love to learn extreme couponing one day. Of course, the coupons meant we could only order what he had coupons for. No salad for me thank you very much. I’m all for thrifty being nifty, but a first date? Come on… No sirree. He is not the new love of my life either.

And it really isn’t the guy who loved the F word and by that I don’t mean FABULOUS. “F’in yeah, you look good enough to eat” would have been better received as, “you look fabulous tonight, where would you like to go out to eat?” F’in idiot. That stands for fabulous idiot BTW.

I know I know, my list of rejected Georgia boys is growing, and I admit I may be a little too picky, but, I’m not from Georgia originally and I just can’t seem to mingle well with the “available” good ole Georgia boy hunks (choke) without wanting to punch them for one reason or another. But, I’m a lady and I wouldn’t do that although I have not had a problem with showing them to the door.

Now that I’ve cleared up who is not the new love of my life, I guess you are wondering about this new love in my life..

His name is Charlie and I could just hug and hold with this little suggar buggar 24/7. This is Kathy at reviewingforyou.com‘s first grand child/grandson and he’s the reason I want another grand child although my kids refuse to grant me this wish. I don’t care how many times they tell me this, 5 IS NOT ENOUGH. :) Unless I have to babysit them all at one time. Then, 5 is plenty.

Charlie

Head on over to Reviewing For You and tell Kathy what a lucky grandma she is and congratulate her because grand child #2 is on the way. Isn’t Charlie the cutest little thing? Love that pout, reminds me of grandma Kathy when we were growing up and she didn’t get her way about something ha ha ha.

The end.

Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle does the work so I don’t have to #MrCleanMorePower @SheSpeaksUp

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Mr. Clean.

I don’t mind cleaning, but in all honesty, I don’t have much time for heavy duty cleaning. Plus my back injuries make cleaning a painful chore. I’ve used Mr. Clean products in the past and I was always pleased with the results so I decided I wanted to review Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle. Using someone else’s muscle to clean is right up my ally. When you have the name of Liquid Muscle and Mr. Clean, you pretty much know that the results are going to be amazing.

But still… I’m stubborn and had to see for myself how little effort or how much effort it would take to clean my dirty surfaces and floors. When you have kids running in and out, pets sliding through the house with muddy paws and a dirty fellow who hasn’t learned to take his shoes off at the door, the results can be pretty icky at the end of the day.

On top of the normal dirt coming in, we can now throw in a week of rain and red Georgia clay. Not only did I have a chance to use Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle on my floors, the walls needed a good scrubbing down as well. So did our white doors. I don’t know what it is about kids and mud, but the two seem to go hand and hand here at Terri’s Little Haven.

Some noteworthy pluses. I love the light meadows and rain scent. It’s not overwhelming but it gives the house a nice clean smell after use. I really like how well it suds up with just a little of the multi-purpose cleaner in my bucket of water. The small size and 2.5X power lets me store it in a smaller area. 16 ounces = 40 ounces. The bottle might be small but it delivers a large clean with little to no effort on my part.

Happy Farm Toy Box Review + Giveaway

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

The kids toy boxes are overflowing and it was time to get a new one. I’ve been looking everywhere for one that I thought would go in their den. They have a hodge podge assortment of toy boxes but none of them are sturdy nor are they what I’d consider cute. I happened upon a Happy Farm Toy Box and I asked the company if they would let me review one. The main reasons I wanted to review this particular toy box is because it’s of a farm scene and because I can add other matching pieces to it as I go. AND it’s super sturdy. They could have their own little farm.

Terri had a little lamb…♫ ♭

I’m enclosing a photo of each of the Happy Farm furniture pieces in this post to show you what all you can add to the Happy Farm collection. The kids are into anything to do with a farm or farming, as they should be. We live in Georgia, deep in farming country and are in fact surrounded by farms on all sides; cows and horses and chickens, oh my.

None this cute though….

Happy Farm Toy Box Review + Giveaway

The toy box required assembly and it wasn’t nearly as difficult as I imagined it to be, when I pulled out all of the pieces. Let me rephrase that. It would have been difficult for me because I’m NOT in the least bit handy :). I broke 3 fingernails pulling the pieces out of the box and that’s when I decided to wait on Andrew to put it together when he had a little time off from work. Sometimes I wish I was more of a handy dandy so I wouldn’t have to rely on him for everything, but, I guess we all have our own talents. I want pink tools because they are cute but I wouldn’t want to ever have to use them :).

Happy Farm Toy Box Review + Giveaway

The pieces are bright and vivid and they really love the cute animals. You can tell just by looking at each painted image that Teamson has some super talented artists working on their hand painted and hand carved products. The toy box is safe and I think my favorite feature is that the lid don’t slam shut. You have to push it down and the results are no slammed fingers. Also, you can tell in the completed photos that there is a groove under the lid do the kids can’t push the lid down on top of each other. Even my hand fits nicely under the lid.

I don’t have any trouble getting the kids to pick up their toys now. Tyler even picked up the girls toys for me this evening just so he could put them in the toy box. If Alyssa hadn’t fallen asleep, she would have fought him over the task. Who knew a toy box could cause such good habits? I hope Tyler’s helpfulness continues lol. Abby gets distracted when I ask her to pick up her toys because she loves the adorable wooden animals and the beads. She’s counted and moved them a dozen times, a dozen different ways. And I have moved the toy box all over the house because it rolls. Woo hoo.
