Let's talk about that oh to familiar and not so talked about issue of badder leakage.  If you're a women and have kids you most likely know what I'm talking about.  I remember sneezing too hard after having my twins and being worried I would have a leak.  During my pregnancy with the twins I didn't have a problem because first off I was young, secondly they were my first pregnancy and thirdly I was in amazing shape at the time. After pushing them out for 2 hours of the vaginal births with them it all ended. My second pregnancy was a different story. My sister who has 9 kids always laughs about how she has to be careful jumping to hard and the trampoline was out of the question for her. Then we found out about TENA® pads. They brought back the confidence and freedom and not having to worry any more. I see more trampoline time in our future!

"TENA® at CVS allows you to feel like your normal self without giving incontinence a second thought. TENA® Lets You Be You."

To help you grab and go with your TENA® pads I came up with this simple no sew pouch you can use to discreetly carry some extra pads with you in your tote or handbag.

You will nee the following supplies:

  • 1 Woven Dish Towel
  • Fabric Scissors
  • No Sew Fabric Glue

Fold you towel into thirds. Lay one of the TENA® pad on the end of the towel leaving about 1 inch from the end.  Cut the towel with the layers still folded about 1 inch from the other side of the pad. This way we get a custom sized pouch that will fit your TENA® pads. 

Unfold the piece you cut and add a line of glue along each middle inside end for seams. Fold the bottom fold back up to form your first seams.

Next, run a line of fabric glue along the ends to make with top flap seams.  Fold the told half over and allow the glue to try according the glue brands directions.

Once your glue is dry add your TENA® pads, toss them in your bag and be confident and free to life your life without worrying about incontinence.

DIY Farmhouse Style Sponge Holder

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and  Scotch-Brite®. All opinions are mine alone. #TeamSponge #ScrubMyWay #CollectiveBias

I'm a sponge user in my kitchen. I also use sponges throughout my house for cleaning.  The funny thing is I come from a household that always use dishcloths and cleaning cloths.  I switched over when I was a nanny. I worked for the best working mom. She was very tidy and used sponges. I got use to using them and loved having the scrubber on one side for those tough to clean spots and the sponge side for wiping down the counters and of course for washing the dishes.

   I like having both the Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty with the dark green scrubber side and the Non-Scratch sponge with the blue scrubber side. Now a regular old sponge won't due for cleaning. You need those two scrubber options to make cleaning up quick and easy so you have time for other things in your life and to enjoy your home.

Right Tools for Every Surface

The green Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Sponge is great for cleaning tough messes for example it cleans 50% better on those tough, baked-on messes. It also great for other kitchen messes like your oven racks, use in the garage and even outdoors.

The blue Non-Scratch Scotch-Brite® Sponge is safe for cleaning non-stick cookware. It's your got to for cleaning without scratching on surfaces like counter tops, cook tops and other surface around your home.

DIY Dog Toys * Easy as 123

Nature’s Recipe® has been around for 35 years. Their pet foods are full of premium ingredients and now you can buy them at Smith's and other Kroger stores!

We are trying a new dog food for Harrison. It's the Nature's Recipe grain free Real Salmon. I chose the salmon flavor because he is always wanting to try the cat's fish flavored food. And guess what he loves it! I also bought him a couple of the Grain Free Ocean Fish & Tuna Recipe In Broth and the Chicken & Turkey Recipe In Broth to try.

Nature’s Recipe promises that it has no corn or wheat, nothing artificial, high-quality protein source as the number 1 ingredient. I'm happy to know that my pup is getting good quality food. I love my pup and want to give him the best. He is the sweetest dog who is there to love us and greet us when we come home. It's a pleasure to treat him and so something nice for him too.

As a nice way to show how much I love him, I came up with this easy DIY dog toy.  Harrison loves toys. It's a super easy no-sew dog toy. Really anyone can make it. It's as easy as 123! 

First, gather your supplies. You will need a water bottle with the lid removed, a pair of fun colored socks, and that it's it!

Put the empty water bottle into the sock top first. Then tie a knot in the end. Easy as can be!

Harrison loves the knot on the end and the crinkly noise it makes when he bites it.

Harrison loves it! We took him to a park up in the mountains to play and he loved running and fetching it. When we got it home he brought it to his toy basket behind the sofa. He likes to have his favorite things in his little hiding place back there. It's the cutest.

You can follow Nature's Recipe on Facebook and Instagram.

You can now get Nature's Recipe at Smith's, Krogers or any of the Kroger banner stores. (Fred Meyer, King Soopers, QFC, Ralph’s, Jay-C, Fry’s) It's super easy to find in the pet aisle. When I went shopping this week they had these flags in the aisle with this cute dog on them. 

Have you tried Nature's Recipe for your sweet pup? You should! Tell us what your dog thinks of it.
