Product I like:: Laundry sorter

First, thank you to all of you who thought of me and prayed during my surgery yesterday. It was a very long day, but thankfully it’s over now. Since Adam had to go back to work today, it’s been a really lazy day of watching movies and playing sit down games where I don’t need to move much. I am truly overwhelmed with so many offers of help that I can hardly believe how blessed we are with so many great people here! I am a very independent person and hate asking for help, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Tomorrow, Lent begins.

While Adam and I are not Catholic, we do sometimes challenge ourselves to give up something for Lent. This year, we decided to give up sweets and anything with high fructose corn syrup. We will see how I fair. I thrive on eating sweets, so if I start wilting too much, I might need to back out of the pact.

I wanted to share another product I like. For someone who does laundry quite a bit, this laundry sorter saves me a lot of time. When we take off our dirty clothing, we immediately sort it into the different sections. This saves me time so I don’t have to dump out all the dirty laundry and sort it right before I do our wash. Instead, all the colored clothing, whites, etc. are already sorted and I just take out each section separately and dump it right into the washer. It may not seem like a big deal, but I absolutely love it.

This isn’t the exact laundry sorter we have, but it was the closest I could find online.

Hemp Hand Protector

Due to the cold weather {and continuously washing my hands after all the diaper changes I do}, my hands have become very cracked. Even to the point of bleeding. Not fun. Thankfully, I was given this for a gift recently and I absolutely love it!

No more painful, cracked hands! If you also deal with badly dried out hands, I suggest purchasing this from The Body Shop. It will definitely be worth your money.

Products I like:: #1

I was blog surfing the other night (one of many things I look forward to doing after the girls are in bed — that, and eating chocolate) and saw a really cool idea that I will be adopting for this blog. The blogger had a tab on products that she likes. Once she comes across something that she will definitely be using again, eating again, etc, she then blogs about it and keeps a nifty little tab at the top where you can browse at your leisure.

So, consider this my first “Products I like” post.

The BOB double stroller is one of my all-time favorite things that I own right now. I know I’ve talked about it in a previous post, but I can’t have a Products I Like tab and not include this! I seriously would be heartbroken (and lost!) if something happened to this stroller.

I run a lot throughout the week (currently 40-50 miles per week to give you an idea) pushing my girls in this stroller. They love it. I love it. It is completely worth the money and I have gotten at least 5 other people to purchase a BOB stroller as well. (I really should get paid from the company every time I convince someone to purchase one of their strollers!) If you are a runner, or just looking for a good stroller to hold over for years and years, I would suggest getting a BOB. It is top rated amongst running moms.

I bought the single BOB Ironman in 2010 right after Brooklyn was born, and purchased the duallie BOB revolution this year. Both are still in great condition and I plan to hang on to these for years to come!
