Treat your Carpets Well

Treating your carpets well can help eliminate bacteria, dirt and grime. They will also last longer and look better. I have made a goal this year, to start taking better care of my home. Taking better care of your home gives you a greater feeling of peace for you and your family. It also helps you become less depressed (over the state of your living situation) and more organized. The following is an informational graphic on your carpets.

Want to win a trip to Paris or Switzerland?

My husband and I have been dreaming about visiting Paris and/or Switzerland together. My husband living in France and Switzerland for two years while doing a mission for our church. I love hearing his stories about the culture, the food, and the scenery. Right now, Oscillo has a sweepstakes to win a free trip to Paris! How fun would that be! The trip is for two and five days and four nights. The sweepstakes ends 3/11/2015. To enter, click here.

Ricola also has a sweepstakes to win a trip to Switzerland. The trip includes three night in Zermatt, a village in the mountains. Ricola will let you also tour their herb gardens and you can go hiking and take in the beautiful scenery. Click here for more information.

Olivia Books by Ian Falconer

I love the Olivia Books by Ian Falconer. The illustrations are so amazing, interesting to look at and the story is amusing and captivating. I am not so sure my 15 month year old boy is as impressed although he does seem to like Olivia's Opposites. We have read most of the books. I am hoping that Mr. Falconer will write some more soon. I know there are some books that are branded Olivia, but aren't by Mr. Falconer. We don't tend to read those since they're not as good. I have a couple of suggestions or themes:

An Olivia Book on:
  • Halloween 
  • Valentine's Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • New Year's
  • Friends or her Best Friend
  • Visiting Paris
  • Visiting London
  • What does Olivia do at school? 
  • Olivia Cleansher Room
Do you have any other ideas?
