Do you know that changing your furnace filter regularly will greatly improve your air quality, and reduce odors in your home? Filtrete Filters knows! They also know that using a good quality filter can be a great weapon in the war against seasonal allergies. Here in our house, those are the major reasons we change our filter monthly, and why only use Filtrete Filters.

Allergen Defense

As much as I love the spring and fall weather here in Michigan, both seasons are often hard on my family’s sinuses, and upper respiratory system. Using Filtrete Filters has really made a difference that we can feel.

Odor Reduction

We recently experienced a major sewer backup in our basement, causing a big stinky mess. Everything the sewer water touched had to go! As the items were somewhat easy to remove from the house, the smell was not. Putting in a Filtrete “Odor Reduction” filter made a huge difference. When we needed it the most!

Made of the highest quality materials, it’s no surprise that Filtrete filters have been helping families breathe cleaner air, inside millions of homes for over 25 years.

When considering which Filtrete filter is best for your home, consider your families needs, and area.

I’m working with Filtrete Filters to keep my house a #HealthierHome . Watch for my follow-up post in December.

Last-Minute Gift Idea for College Students #SANUS #BackToSchool

Looking for a great last minute gift idea for a collage student? Consider a gift from SANUS, because space saving solutions and comforts of home never go out of style!

From suite-style residences to Greek houses, small and frequently shared quarters can be a tight squeeze. Don’t let cramped spaces limit décor possibilities this semester. To maximize space, style and organization, add SANUS®, the #1 best selling TV mount brand in the United States, to the college prep checklist.

Moving to college leaves students longing for the comforts of home—from bountiful space to more than basic cable. Mounting a television is an easy way to transform any college living space into a sleek, cozy retreat, away from busy campus life. SANUS mounts extend, tilt or swivel to provide the best viewing angle, while also freeing up valuable surface area on top of furniture that’s perfect for storing books and knick knacks. College is a big adjustment for students, but making living space comfortable shouldn’t have to be—SANUS is a smart solution for the majority of students who are tight on space.

Girls Night In with Butterfly Kiss & The Other Woman

I recently received a fun, unexpected package in the mail. Containing a magazine full of colorful recipes, several cute butterfly tags for wine glasses, two full size bottles of Butterfly Kiss wine and a copy of the movie The Other Woman. All the makings of the perfect “Girls Night In”.

butterfly_2083452426534165485_n

Being a mom that works outside of the home, life can get pretty busy. It’s a nice slow things down every now and then to spend time with friends. Add a couple bottles of wine and a fun new movie on DVD, and it’s more than just “nice”, it’s darn good time!

I have to say – I’m blessed with some really great friends. Even when they ask me to put away my phone and not take their photo. (Like this time) Our evenings together are always a good time.

The wine
Butterfly Kiss currently features five lively, bright varietals reasonably priced at under $15.
butterfly_bottles4788

I’ve always favored a semi-sweet red wine, but I’m really looking forward to trying all of these!

Empress Red Blend – A light kiss of chocolate covered black cherries.
Pinot Grigio – a delicate, light wine showing kisses of citrus and ripe pear.
Chardonnay – a lush, tropical fruit flavors, kissed by a touch of vanilla.
Moscato – a lovely, well-balanced sweet white wine loaded with stone fruit and citrus.
Pink Pinot Grigio – a rosé-styled wine showing lively flavors of strawberry shortcake and bright citrus.

Found in the the Sandra Lee magazine that was included in my package, I served Peachy Punch Sangria to my friends along with a couple of light appetizers (crab puffs, artichoke whip w/ rice crackers) during this Girls Night.

peachcaae44711684005405225e44b7e92ed1-1403643940

It was peachy heaven! Sweet and refreshing, but with enough kick to keep our party and the laughs going. Speaking of laughs…

The movie

Cameron Diaz leads a knockout cast in this irreverent comedy about love, lust and the laws of karma. New York attorney Carly Whitten (Diaz) is nobody’s fool. So when she accidentally discovers that her too-good-to-be-true boyfriend Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is married, she’s less than thrilled. Not only that, she and Mark’s wife Kate (Leslie Mann), learn about yet another mistress (Kate Upton)! Before long, however, the betrayed beauties have become unlikely pals who’ve decided to teach their three-timing man a lesson. The more the trio learns about Mark, the worse he seems, and the more fun they have without him!

the-other-woman_78452

We found the plot to be somewhat predictable, but Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann have great comedic chemistry, so over-all we enjoyed this movie. It’s a good “chick flick” for a get together. We talked through a lot of the movie, but then laughed pretty hard at it too. Or was it the Butterfly Kiss wine!?

You be the judge, The Other Woman is avaible NOW on DVD, and Digital Download !
