I grabbed the picture off their website as it is now toooooo cold for me to wear such cute apparel such as this.  :)  At least I got to try them on before the snow started to fall.  The skirt and top fit great, and will be so much fun to wear come spring!  Cute, comfy, practical – gotta love it. :)

Check out the Perfect Pockets Skirt, Grey Striped Knit Top and everything Deborah and Co. have to offer – even maternity.  They are a fantastic company to work with!

Is Laura Really Talking About Ironing?? Yep! It’s an Iron Ease Pro Giveaway! (U.S. and Canada)

If you know me, and I’m afraid you do, you know that ironing is not on my top ten favorite activities list.  Bottom ten is more like it.  Ugh…ironing.

So why am I choosing to talk about this dreaded subject?  Perhaps it’s because my ironing pile is getting bigger and somebody needs to catch up on that around here.  (Boys, are you listening?)

Speaking of boys:  Because we have a household full of them, ironing has not been super necessary most of the time.  T-shirts and jeans, athletic gear and soccer uniforms - none of those items need ironing even if one of the boys crams his clothes into his drawers without folding them first but let’s not even talk about that.  Now that our boys are getting older and caring more about how they look and smell?  Well, ironing is going to have to move higher up on our chore list.

boys at wedding

Here are all the boys at a wedding a couple months ago – all unwrinkled and buttoned up.

So let’s make ironing as easy as possible, shall we?  I just received a wonderful free IronEase Pro to try out.  Who knew an ironing board could be so nice?  Who knew I could actually iron the sleeves of shirts without putting more creases in during the process?  Who knew the iron could glide over the clothes so nicely?

Well, it just might be that I don’t hate ironing as much as I used to.  I’ll still encourage t-shirts and jeans, but when the boys need to look a little nicer, I won’t dread ironing their shirts as much as I used to.  Trust me when I say that they will also be using the IronEase Pro to keep themselves handsome, oh yes they will.  (Boys, are you listening?)

Iron Ease 1 IronEase 2

A word from de Machinor:

We’ve experienced countless improvements in common household products since the Millennium, yet the common ironing board has remained unchanged since it was first conceived over 140 years ago. Innovative product design powerhouse, de Machinor, has addressed the design flaws inherent of traditional ironing boards in their debut IronEase Pro– resulting in a markedly more effective product that saves time and makes ironing feel like less of a chore.

The IronEase Pro has 8 unique time-saving design features that separate it from all other boards on the market, including the patented ShoulderWing Design that eliminates the common frustrations of ironing a collared shirt. These features have earned the IronEase Pro consistent five star ratings from happy customers on Amazon.com.
de Machinor’s ironing board is not only superior in design, but in quality as well. The IronEase Pro is constructed from rust-resistant steel instead of the synthetic plastic used by most ironing board manufacturers today, resulting in an ironing board that lasts several times as long as its competitors.

This ironing board is not your average el cheapo ironing board.  It is made with quality materials with a board that does not wear out, because it is made with metal, not plastic.  The Shoulder Wing system saves much time when ironing dress shirts.  I really am impressed with all this ironing board offers.  Indeed, I’m gushing about an ironing board.  Who knew I would ever do that?  In addition to finding this item at the deMachinor website, you can also find the IronEase Pro at Amazon.

 

Want to win one of these IronEase Pro ironing boards?!  Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win.  For an additional chance, you can follow de Machinor on Twitter, then leave an additional comment here telling us you did.

 

Are you from Canada?  You’ll be excited to know that the IronEase Pro is available there too!  Not only that, de Machinor is giving away an additional IronEase Pro to one of you from Canada!!!  Please specify in your comment if you are Canadian so that I can grab those entries for a separate random drawing.  Thanks!

 

I’ll draw two random winners (one U.S. and one Canada) on Tuesday, October 21.  Be watching for a post stating the winners as you will be responsible for contacting me if your name is chosen!

Gratituesday: Summer to Winter Clothes (Plus our Lilla Rose Winner)

gratituesday[2]

It used to be one of my most dreaded projects.  We have several tubs of clothes up in our attic.  Every fall and every spring we lug them down, finding what fits which boy each year.  While I’ve been ridiculously thankful for the amount of clothes we’ve had for our boys – most of them hand me downs – the chore of switching out clothes for the season was always long and exhausting.

This year though?  I am reminded how nice it is to have children old enough to be such a huge help.   We had the entire job done – from lugging down containers, to switching out clothes, to lugging them all back up – in one hour.  One hour.  Hallelujah!

summer to winter 1

This job used to take me two entire days.  That was back when the kids “helped” by resorting my piles thirty times, throwing shirts at each other, trying on clothes that were way too big or too small…you know the drill.  I loved that everyone just got right to it, got it done, and moved on with the day.

Best news of all:  I did not have to be the one to go into the attic.  I’m not a fan of the attic.  It has a little something to do with a bird attack I experienced a few years back.  I now put on my pitiful face and beg one of my boys to do the dirty work.  Love these boys!

summer to winter 2

This pile of clothes is heading to our bi-annual clothing exchange this weekend.

I’m so thankful God continues to provide plenty of clothing for my family – especially as their legs keep getting LONGER.  Wow.  I’m thrilled to have this task behind us for the year, and as much as I love summer, I will admit that it’s fun to pull out warm sweaters for this fall season!

Pamper Yourself Naturally With Perfectly Posh ~ A Giveaway

We learned several years ago with our youngest son Malachi’s chronic skin condition that what we put on our skin goes directly into our body, which means we need to be very careful about what we put on our skin.  I’m not much into pampering products.  After all, usually they are full of chemicals I’d rather avoid putting on my skin.  But what about a fun product that can brag this:

posh 1

Well, now maybe I’ll listen.

Laura A., an independent consultant with Perfectly Posh sent me two of their most popular products to try out.  Taking time to relax and pamper myself?  Yes, that is a good thing.  My family appreciates it when I take care of myself.  ;)

Here’s what I got to try:

posh 2Best Face Forever (BFF) – Millions of microbeads scrub and gently exfoliate with a naturally cleansing blend of grapefruit and peppermint. Essential oils soothe and freshen. Gently enough for everyday use. BFF makes me feel like I am having a mini spa experience every day.

posh 3

Night and Day – Moisturize with lavender and glycerin plus natural olive oils.  It’s nourishment you need to have your skin be your best.  Smooth over your clean face morning and night.

These products left my face feeling clean and refreshed.  I like that there are fun products available we can feel good about.
You might also want to check into the Perfectly Posh business opportunity to see if this is a good match for you.  Maybe you just want to check out the products a little more.   And maybe, just maybe, you’d like to win a fun package with Best Face Forever and Night & Day like I got to try.
If so, leave a comment on this post!  I’ll draw a random winner on Monday, September 22.  Be watching for a post stating the winner as you will be responsible for contacting me if your name is chosen.

Nutrimill and MadeOn Giveaway Winners, Plus a GREAT Deal on Organic Refined Coconut Oil

nutrimill 2

These are some awfully fun giveaway winners to announce.  Congrats, ladies!

Our MadeOn $25 Gift Certificate winner is:

Karen L: karenaleak@

Our Nutrimill winner from Paula’s Bread is:

Rachel Fisher: rachelgfisher@

Ladies, email me and I’ll forward your info on for your prizes!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I just found a big ol’ 54 ounce tub of Nutiva Organic Refined Coconut Oil which you can get for just $20.79 with the 10% off coupon offered by Amazon.  (Free shipping if you have Amazon Prime.)  This makes the oil only $0.38 per ounce – a great price for organic coconut oil.  I’m most excited about this because it is flavorless and odorless.  It’s hard to find good deals sometimes on refined coconut oil that is actually still good for you.  (Some at the grocery store don’t contain much in the way of nutrition.  I like Nutiva brand.)

nutiva refined oil

I like using refined coconut oil in any recipe I don’t want a coconut flavor.  French fries, chicken nuggets, chicken fried steak – these are all great (and healthy!) with refined coconut oil.  This has a very long shelf life, although I find that I go through it pretty quickly. ;)  Snatch this up!

My Favorite Whole Wheat Recipes – and A Nutrimill Giveway From Paula’s Bread

I’m often asked how I get my 100% whole wheat baked goods to actually taste yummy.  It is true that sometimes store-bought whole wheat flour can turn out a dry and dense muffin or bread.  We know whole grains have more nutrition, but really, who cares how healthy it is if it doesn’t even taste good?

No Knead Whole Wheat Bread

Ahhh, that’s why I love my Nutrimill.  Freshly ground flour is so amazingly good.  It makes a world of difference in the way my baked goods taste.  Even better is the fact that all the nutrients are alive and intact when you grind your own flour.  Tastes better and is much healthier?  Yes, please!

What are my favorite Whole Wheat Recipes?  Well, all of them, of course.  But if I really had to choose my top ten, I guess they would be…

How has your whole wheat baking experience been so far?  Ever since I started grinding my own grain, it’s made a world of difference in how the product turns out.  Who knew baking with whole wheat (or other freshly ground grains) could be so easy?

Buying a Nutrimill is a bit of an investment.  It’s worth it, but it can take a while to save up the money for one.  That’s why I thought you might like the chance to win a free one.  :)

Paula’s Bread is the sweetest!!  We’re hitting the restart button with a Nutrimill giveaway, thanks to Paula.  :)

Who Wants to Win a Nutrimill

love my Nutrimill, which can be used to grind hard and soft wheat, kamut, spelt, hulled buckwheat, oat groats, hully barley, triticalae, rye, brown rice, wild rice, popcorn, sorghum, soybeans, split peas, and dried beans.  It grinds these into a lovely, fine flour which can be used in all of your baked goods.

I use my Nutrimill alllllll the time.  I mostly use my mill to grind hard and soft white wheat.  Most people don’t even know they are eating whole grains at my house.  They just know they are eating delicious bread, cookies, muffins, or pizza crust.

Paula’s Bread is the place to go when you’re ready to buy a Nutrimill.  Her prices are always the best, and her customer support is fantastic.  I have worked with Paula for years.  She’s a lovely, godly woman.  (Like Paula’s Bread on Facebook!)
