2 Loves for the Day After Valentines.

This post probably would have been more appropriate for yesterday, as opposed to my Redbox run-in but...


It is not often that I try 'new' products.  I get what I always get & that's that.  Even when what I always get doesn't always work like I want it too.  Sometimes I am just not up to figuring out what to get instead. 

And my floors have been suffering in silence for too long.  Some of you may remember a long ago post {so long ago I am not even going to pull it out of the vaults} regarding mopping techniques.  Like how the heck to you get rid of the streaks???  And then the footprints???  They drive me crazy.

A lot of people pointed me to the steam mop.  And by a lot, I probably mean you.  $100 and a year of hatred later it randomly broke...not breaking my heart in the process because now I was forced to get something.  5 hand & knee mops by yours truly later found me at Wal-Mart by myself walking down the mop aisle.  I was there getting groceries & decided to just buy something for the interim.  Because I was still avoiding the task of figuring out what exactly my solution was going to be.

Long story long...I picked up this bad boy.

Yes.  That's right I call my mop bad boy.  Try not to be jealous of our relationship.  But I love this thing.  I will not say it delivers 'streak free' but what does?  nothing.

Here's what I love...It is easy!!!  Who would've thunk those words would escape my mouth in regards to mopping.  But seriously...my 4-year-old son can do it successfully.  Which makes it really easy for me!

So you fill up the 'water bottle' thing with whatever solution you want to use.  Which I love because I use one that smells good.  Which was something that always bugged with the steam mop.  I mean, the smell is the dead giveaway to my husband that I've been working real hard & for him to appreciate appropriately.  Then you pull the trigger, it sprays, you wipe.  It's small & easy to get in & out, so I actually use it more. 

So that is item one that I am loving & thought you should know about.

Item two that has found permanence in my pantry:

I love me a good salad.  And by good I mean chock full of non-salad things & coated with a sugary dressing.  My friend prepared a salad at a shower that included these & it was love.  They remind me of the Asian Chicken Salad at Nordstrom Cafe, which is always a good thing.  They have a home in my pantry & are giving me lots of excuses to throw together a salad.

Seriously.  I never thought I would throw together a salad just for myself, but when these are included {okay & the dressing is already made & sitting in the fridge...cause bottled dressing just doesn't work for me} then I am 'throwing' salads together left & right & then letting myself feel good for eating 'healthy.'  It's a win-win.

Pick them up & enjoy!

I have been looking for a mop my kids can use (I am still off the hook for mopping for a while, Yay!)
I will be sending out the hubs for this sucker very soon.
Thanks for the suggestion!
