Freezer Runneth Over

or almost runneth over anyway...

Had to take all the food out (except for the ice cream - our above-fridge freezer won't freeze ice cream well enough). Not really sure what I am going to do once it is completely full. Especially now that spring is coming, can't just put it outside ;) I need to buy stock in Lansinoh milk bags, too. Especially since I can't find any coupons for them!

Very thankful to have a good supply!

CLOSED! Purex Crystals Review & Giveaway

Thanks to Purex (and as a Purex Insider), I was able to to try out their new fabric softener crystals.
Now 3 of you all can, too!

I'll be honest, I was skeptical, but I really like Purex Complete Crystals Softener! The smell is good & refreshing and the clothes were nice & soft coming out of the dryer, too.
Also, as a mom of two (including an infant with sensitive skin) I was very happy to read that Purex Crystals are 92% natural. I used it with the girls' clothes and haven't had any problems whatsoever and am still snuggling those baby soft cheeks :)
Check out the videos on their site if you have a chance. The video showing how liquid softener works definitely caught my eye!

I have to admit, it took me a few tries to realize I was supposed to put it in the washer BEFORE putting in clothes - ended up getting crystals all over when I poured it in on top of the clothes. Wouldn't have been an issue if our machine was a top loader (and if I had read the directions) :P
Overall, I'd give it 4.5 out of 5 stars, great smell, affordable & soft :)

Now for the fun part! Purex sent me 3 coupons for a FREE bottle of Purex Complete Crystals Softener (max. value $5.50) to give to my blog readers. Post a comment here stating whether you use softener and if you do, what kind. I have to admit I am curious :)

I will allow comments until Tuesday @ 8PM CST & will use to choose 3 winners, each receiving one coupon.
I'll announce the winners here and on FB shortly after (as long as I have a few minutes while baby sleeps) so don't forget to check back so I can get your mailing info if you win! I might throw in a few extra coupons, too!

***Congrats to Carren J & Heather P! I will mail your coupons asap :) Only 2 comments on here & FB so you both WIN :P

Picture Overload

Speaking of sisters... My lovely & talented sister Emily took these gorgeous pics of the girls. I just love them! (the pics & the girls lol!)

You might also notice Elise's ticker no longer states gestational age - that's because her due date was yesterday :) She's also over 7lbs now!

Seeing my girls together is making me miss my sisters so much! I just love how sweet Keira is with her baby sister (who as of today is 6lbs 12oz!)... I know they will have their fights, but right now I am enjoying this perfect time and hope that they will be as great of friends as I am with my sisters!

The first pic was the morning after I brought Elise home, Keira was already asleep so she didn't get to meet her sister until morning. She saw her in the playard, smiled and said, "night, night sister!" It was adorable!
