How to cover a duvet the EASY way in UNDER two minutes! Brilliant! #cleaning #lifehacks makinglemonadeblog.com

I used to have a love/hate relationship with duvet covers-- I loved them for their versatility but LOATHED putting the cover over the actual duvet. That is until I discovered the trick that allowed me to put a duvet cover onto a duvet in UNDER TWO MINUTES BY MYSELF. That's right-- no roping in my husband to help, no climbing inside, no midnight struggles as I fought to put a new cover on a duvet that had been puked on. (TMI?) I'm a bona fide member of the duvet cover fan club. They're … [Read more...]

Alex's Lemonade Stand #OneCupAtaTime

It's been a whirlwind week here: I started the week in Florida with a few of my favorite blogging buddies, then came home for Bee's 4th birthday (when did he get so big?!), my husband flew out on an unexpected business trip AND we've been under a 'boil water' advisory all week so no dishes, laundry, cooking, drinking, bathing, etc. can be done until it's lifted. From paradise to boiled water, there's never a dull moment in the Lemonade House! Despite the chaos, I'm counting blessings and … [Read more...]

My daily routine currently involves dropping my kids off at preschool, driving over to the gym for a workout, then perhaps squeezing in one more errand or sitting in the parking lot answering emails like a TOTALLY SANE PERSON.

best links on the internet this week

Hey Everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Sorry it's been so quiet around here but truthfully I've been dealing with some health issues that have required some time and attention (seeing specialists, getting procedures, you know, FUN STUFF). I think everything's going to be okay but in the meantime I'm not having much fun. There's so much to share with you; I hope I'm feeling back to normal soon so I can get back to doing what I love. In the meantime, here's what's been making me … [Read more...]

Best Links of the Week-- some great posts to read and enjoy.

It's finally the weekend, so I thought I'd leave you with a few favorite links to peruse over the next few days. So grab some coffee (or wine), sit back, and check out my favorite finds this week-- there's a great mix of articles and videos that inform, inspire, and perhaps elicit a giggle and tear or two. :) We adore Idina Menzel over here (aka, "Adele Dazeem", silly John Travolta) so it's hard to admit she sounds better in this clip than she did at the Oscars (love when she starts … [Read more...]
