ME TIME!

Posted by Heather Shields On 10:20 AM | No comments
Blogging. It's been an outlet for me. A way to make a few extra dollars. A way to try some truly awesome FREE (always a plus!) products. A way to connect with other moms, bounce ideas off of them, commiserate and build friendships with them. My commitment level has been hardcore, once in a blue moon, and everything in between.And here I find myself again. Staring at a blank box, cursor blinking waiting to see what fabulousness springs from the keyboard

 So what do I have to offer now, in this season of life? A non-committal hope to spew forth some full sentences with big adult-type words that don't have anything to do with correcting behavior, informing someone of the day's menu, or frantic protestations to stalling tactics when a deadline is hanging over my head. Sound like something you want to read? Oh wait, I only told you what this isn't going to be. Well, hmm... how about I just talk and you listen. Or read. Yes, you read. 

  I'm a mother of 4. I love my littles immensely, but life with 4 kids is no joke. My husband works a good deal and so much of the responsibilities of the house fall to me. As he put it recently, I spread myself very thin. There's the kids, the house, cooking and cleaning. I work from home, run an Outlander fan group with over 1400 members, and I am going to be going back to college in the fall. So I totally have time to start my blog back up now, right? Right. 

 Well, the bottom line is everyone needs a little sanity. "Me" time, you might call it. Some people go to the gym, or lace up running shoes every day, some people zone out with their headphones or get lost in books for hours at a time. I'm lethally allergic to exercise (seriously. it KILLS fat cells!), my knees can't handle running, I can't listen to a full length song with headphones without someone asking me a question, and the same goes for books, though I do adore reading, I just can't seem to find the quiet time or headspace to really dig into a meaty read lately. 

 I do craft. I love sewing, crochet, my adult coloring book, and finding PINteresting things to do. Those all have their creative places in my life, but there's just something about putting pen to paper (fingers to keys?) that has always been a relief for me. To take everything jumbled around *up there* and make sense of it right in front of me. I can read, reread, edit, and finally sit back and look at a cohesive thought, process, story, or the like that actually makes SENSE! And not much in life makes sense, if you ask me. It's all "rolly polly pell mell tumble bumble" as one of my kiddos favorite books says. 

 So I'll blog. When I can, about whatever I want. No promises, just an outlet that might bring some joy, perspective, and sense to my day and yours.

Reese's Spreads #ReesesSpreads

Posted by Heather Shields On 10:45 AM | 1 comment
Ever wondered why the phrase "om nom nom" was created? For this product. This Reese's chocolate peanut butter spread is perfectly spreadable, melty, chocolately Reese's in a jar. Om nom nom is the sound you'll make as you mindlessly munch through whatever amazing flavor combo you make. Dip pretzels, spread it on toast, cover apples, or (my favorite) melt the spread and drizzle over buttery popcorn. The ultime in OM NOM NOM!

Influenster, VoxBox, and Herbal Essences... oh my!

Posted by Heather Shields On 7:32 PM | No comments
I signed up for Influenster a few months back. A friend of mine posted a picture of her first VoxBox and I was oohing and aahing over the goodies. After checking out the website and reading a bit more I was convinced it was for me! Here's what Influenster is all about:

Influenster is a community of TRENDSETTERS, social media masterminds, and EDUCATED CONSUMERS who live to give opinions of products and experiences.

Influensters meet here to learn about new products from our favorite brands as well as review the products they already use in their day-to-day lives.

Influenster invites its most active members to participate in exclusive VoxBox programs where members receive complimentary products to test and review. In exchange, we ask our members to do what they already love to do: share their opinions with their friends & followers on social media.

But that's not all. We have a lot going on including digital challenges, twitter parties, & contests - take a look around!

So, after the initial signup I was dragging my heels. Or rather, I just totally forgot about it. Until a survey popped up in my inbox and I spent the 2 minutes filling it out. Well, what do you know! I actual am getting my first VoxBox! It's for Herbal Essences Naked which is right up my ally. I'm a total curly girl, always looking for something more GREEN, and what lady doesn't love free beauty products?  I'm stoked! I'll be sure and weigh in and let you guys know what I thought of the box and the Naked products!

Hello there!

Posted by Heather Shields On 6:15 AM | 1 comment
In case you hadn't noticed it's been quite a while since my last posting. We've had some big changes in our home and even more are in the works. My husband changed jobs after 10 years and the new job is moving us to a new area. I'm very excited about the move, and ready for a change of scenery. The area we're migrating to has more natural shopping options and is a city hub. It's going to be a big change from the rural setting we've been living in, but we've thrived in the city before and we will do it again!

 In the meantime I've been trying tons and tons of SNEAKY experiments! I've made another batch of laundry detergent, worked on perfecting my dishwashing powder, made, used (and not stunk!), and enjoyed homemade deodorant, concocted the most scrumptious chewy granola bars, attempted calcium powder using farm fresh eggs, and subsequent homemade toothpaste (FAIL!) using said powder. All in all it's been a productive couple of months, and I am looking forward to sharing my experiences with you.

Don't forget to check back with me and see what I'll be sharing!

Glow Bug Cloth Diaper Review

Posted by Heather Shields On 11:50 AM | 1 comment
Many parents are seeking out cloth diapers because the expense of using disposables is overwhelming. They look into cloth, see some of the cute little calculators breaking down the savings and BOOM they're starting a stash. Then they see an ultra cute diaper, but WHOA... the price tag! It's true. Many a money-saver has succumb to the ultra cute, ultra bank-breaking cloth diaper addiction.

How can you feed your cute cloth addiction and ensure you're still saving money? Glow Bug diapers. They ONLY sell diapers in packages. This guarantees that you're getting the most bang for your buck, and allows them to reduce the cost per diaper because every customer is buying in bulk! They have adorable prints, vivid colors, and seasonal diapers to keep an eye out for.

The design of Glow Bug's diapers is also innovative. These are pockets diapers, but both ends of the diapers have openings. No need to fish through a poopy pocket cover to rescue your insert! And don't worry that the insert will slip out, each diaper and insert snap together to keep everything where it belongs. {whispers... these inserts can be used with other diapers, and I haven't had a single issue with a regular insert migrating where it doesn't belong.}

Let's look at all the spec's together, shall we?

  • PRICE! (6 pack for $70-$75, 12 pack for $150)
  • One Size (fits from 7lbs to 35lbs)
  • Pocket Diaper with dual opening
  • Comes in prints and solids
  • Double rows of snaps, with cross over features to fit even the teeniest waists
  • Double gussets... think poop explosion crowds control 
  • SlimDry fabric. It is exactly what it sounds like. Fabric designed to stay dry without the bulk.
  • Wing snaps on top row to prevent dropping. Droopy butts are so uncool.

Just look at some of the cuteness you can buy in their packages!
So if you're considering cloth diapers, know someone who is thinking about it, or just need to beef up your current stash, get thy money saving tush to Glow Bug diapers and check out their BIGGEST SALE EVER!

Roll call - PRESENT!

Posted by Heather Shields On 11:21 AM | No comments


Who remember walking into their grade-school classroom, sitting in their desk (probably scratched with several names), and waiting for the teacher to go through the roll and call their name. Remember how you started squirming in your seat as Ashley and Ben and John were called and you knew the teacher was getting closer to you? That's been me. I've been absent from the blogroll lately, and I apologize. I've had tons on my plate, and even more on my mind. Mystery lumps and lethargy from Noah, inexplicable tummy pain from Lina, keeping up with schoolwork and homework with Henry, and readying Luke for preschool next year. Add to that the seasonal sicknesses that infiltrate a home of 6, regular housework, cooking, keeping up with 6 pets (we've aquired a random dog who eats Bella's food and sleeps on her mat),Hubby transitioning to his new job and well... I've had so much going on in live that I've had little time for personal ventures. Today is actually the first time I've sat down on the "big" computer since... ummm... well, I honestly can't remember.

But I'm back. I'm here. Present and accounted for. I can't promise I'll make it to class every day, but when I'm here I will make it worth your while to be reading and sneaking along with me.

So... I've been called on and checked off the roll for today. Let's see who else is here!
