And So a New Week Begins

This past weekend passed in a whirlwind. We enjoyed a dinner party with Mr. Honey’s work team on Friday evening. It was Little Bear’s first true social outing, so we were concerned about how she would (or wouldn’t) behave. Turns out, we had nothing to be worried about. She was a happy little chatterbox who instantly bonded with the wife of Mark’s boss. They spent the bulk of the evening together touring the house, meeting everyone, cuddling, and carrying on long conversations. Thank you, JM, for entertaining our little girl!

When we left the dinner party, we headed to Iowa to spend the weekend with Mr. Honey’s parents. Again, our little one performed like a champ in church and at Grandpa and Grandma’s house. Except for a couple upsets, she was a happy little girl. She even showed off her new giggle!

Today, I am faced with the clean-up aspect of being gone: unpacking, doing laundry, reestablishing a routine… Plus, I have some freelance blogging to do and an invoice to submit so I can get paid for some contract writing projects. And I made strawberry granola this morning so we have cereal for this week.

I guess Mondays are always catch-up days for me. Tuesdays are better. Today I will get things checked off the to-do list; tomorrow my “normal” weekly routine will begin.

How do you start your weeks? What do your Mondays look like?

Bargain Alert: Organic Castile Soap (EXPIRED)

UPDATE: This deal has expired but great products are still available. Check out Earth Mama Angel Baby for a full line of organic personal care items for all members of the family.



I love a good bargain! And when a good bargain is combined with a good product that I use, I love it even more!

Right now Earth Mama Angel Baby is selling liter refill bottles of its organic Castile soap for only $14.95 instead of $40. That is $25 off! The Angel Baby shampoo/body wash has a light, delicious scent that smells like a 50/50 bar. Yum! Though marketed as a product for baby, it can actually be used for any member of the family. It can also be used to make your own household and cleaning products. Recipes are available for: soft scrubby cleanser, diaper wipes, laundry detergent, and bug spray.

For our Little Bear, it was important to me and to Mr. Honey to use natural, non-toxic products as much as possible. We love this soap! It is scented with essential oils and gets nice and sudsy. It has no artificial fragrances, foaming agents, preservatives, sulfates, parabens, dyes, or triclosan antibacterials.

Apparently supplies of Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash are limited to what the company has on hand, so you might want to check it out quickly. This is a refill bottle, so you will need a self-foaming bottle/dispenser. Also, be sure to note that shipping is free for orders over $49. You are allowed to purchase up to three bottles. But to get over that $49 mark, I suggest adding a couple lip balms.


NOTE: I love Earth Mama Angel Baby products so much that I became an affiliate. That means I will receive compensation for any sale made through these links. Your prices are not impacted at all. Published prices on the company’s website are what customers pay. Any compensation I may receive comes directly from the company. Thank you for your support!
