How to Clean your Oven: The Ultimate Shaklee Test

Happy Sunday!  I hope that you are having a relaxing day today.  We are going to go to church and then going to relax and play games.  My kids have really been into Chutes and Ladders and Sequence for Kids.  I think we play almost everyday now, lol! 

How is you mind organizing going?  If you posted about it, please link up here and you can also post it on my facebook page along with the author of the book Organize Now!’s page.
Anyway, I just wanted to show you another amazing Shaklee testimony!!!  Even I was blown away, ha!  Leah from Flawless Human was at it again with her cleaning skills.
  She showed us here her review about Shaklee’s Dish Wash Concentrate.  Today is showing us how to clean our oven.  She really worked hard and it paid off.  Her oven looks brand new again!! :)

Here is her post…

The Ultimate Shaklee Test

I WAS skeptical.

I just didn't think it would work.

It hadn't been done in months.

I was avoiding the chemicals heavy duty oven cleaners have.

It WAS disgusting and humiliating!

Enter - Shaklee Get Clean De-greaser & Scour Off.

De-greaser is made from Basic H concentrate.

First, I have to say I LOVE the smell of Scour Off, it's like Cherry Bubblegum.

(kind of looks like it too, if gum were a paste)

Second, it's all natural, safe for you, your home, and your planet. NO more mask, burning eyes or hands!

Third, IT WORKS!

Don't believe me? Check out the proof!


Now you can see I wasn't exaggerating about the grossness!

After taking this picture I sprayed it all with the de-greaser, let it set a few minutes and wiped to get all the gooey loose stuff off.

Then scrubbed away with the paste and a scrubby sponge.


Can you believe it?!

Yes, there's a couple spots left and I could have gotten them off but I just plum ran out of stamina.

(I took a "break" to clean my in-laws place between cleaning the door and oven)

Here's the fine print:

this method WILL require time, LOADS of energy and elbow grease!

And though I'd like to say the scour off paste did it all... a metal putty knife was used CAREFULLY as well.

I'd also recommend NOT letting your oven get as bad as mine!!!

In conclusion...

I would definitely say TRY IT yourself! Shaklee products are great, good for you and they have a wide variety of uses as well as great prices.
[I am not paid or instructed to do these reviews by Shaklee. I'm simply a happy customer.]

WOW!!!!  Can you believe that?  Doesn’t her oven look great?

Thanks Leah for writing and sharing this! 

Please go visit Leah and tell her that she did a great job!!! :)

If you ordered Shaklee from me, please grab a button for your blog.


Have a great Sunday!!!


Also don’t forget about my January Special and please contact me for my specials!!! :)  


Winter on the Homefront

Winter on the HomefrontJanuary 29, 2011
This is a brief break in our vacation gardening photos just to let you know that life continues in the garden even during the winter.  Last year we did not get the snowfall we needed during the winter and as expected the growing season was not as good as it could have been.  This year has been a bit different.  While we were away during most of the month of

Theme parks are full of ideas that can be scaled down for use in the home garden.  A waterfall is always a welcomed addition to any home garden water feature.  Pictured is a larger waterfall at Busch Gardens that could easily be scaled down for the home garden.  It's it lovely?

Happy Gardening!

How to Organize Your Mind

Welcome to Week 1 of our Organize your Life series!

I am really excited about this and based on your comments this is exactly what we all need!

Organize your LIFE

I am reading and using the book called Organize Now! by Jennifer Ford Berry to help me organize my life.

2011 01 23_2114

There is still time to join and enter to win your own copy here.  You can also buy the book from the link below.

This week’s challenge is a really important one…Organizing your mind!

Often, when we think of organizing, we think of organizing paper, toys, clothes, etc. but before we can really organize our house or surroundings, we need to be mentally organized!

This weeks challenge maybe easy or difficult depending on each person.

This week, you need to work on de-cluttering your mind and start thinking positively!

Here are your goals for this week:

Get at least 7 hours of sleep a night.-  I have to admit, this is a hard one for me because I really like staying up late and I am not really a fan of waking up too early!  I have decided to go to bed at 10:00pm and wake up early (around 5-6:00am) instead of staying up late.  Studies show that if you are asleep between 10PM – 2 AM, you get better quality sleep and I can sure use that to help my mind! :)

Keep a To-Do List- I found this on my Word program.  You can use this one or make/buy a different one.  Just make sure you write everything down.  This is great for your mind because you can stop trying to remember everything.  I liked this sheet because everything is all on one piece of paper….simple!

To Do List

 Start a Journal- I use my blog as a journal, does that count? lol!  I don’t have time for one now but for some of you, this might be exactly what you need. 

Limit TV- Too much TV is not healthy for you.  This will be easy for me because I rarely watch TV.  We don’t even have cable/dish….I know….we are the only ones without it but it saves us time and money.  Anyway, who needs TV when we have blogs, right?  lol!

Schedule Breaks (for yourself)- I give myself a short coffee break at lunchtime.  Usually when the kids are eating lunch.  I don’t actually have a break by myself, but I stop doing things.  At this time, I usually read to the kids while I drink my coffee.  I love reading to the kids midday because they need a break too and I read to them while they are finishing up lunch and they are still in their chairs/highchairs  (that way they are forced to listen to the book, lol…I am sneaky like that!)

2011 01 26_21422011 01 26_2148

Pray/Meditate-  This can be hard to fit in if you are not used to doing.  I need to squeeze it in where we can.  We of course say Grace before we eat.  But I also pray out loud in the car on the way to school with the kids.  We also pray again at bedtime and my husband and I pray together before bed.  We also started reading a prayer/meditating book.  This is a great way to relax!

Exercise- This can REALLY help your mind…I am a Certified Personal Trainer and have seen this help people mentally so many times!!!  I love working out but even I was having a hard time fitting it into my schedule.  So I  joined a gym about 3 months ago because I needed to workout and I just wasn’t doing it at home.  I felt guilty about taking that time away from the kids.  I found a clean, local gym that the kids love so now I get to workout and the kids can run around and play in the childcare.  They have fun active things for the kids to do when I am exercising so this helps the kids stay active too.  Since working out regularly again, I have really noticed a huge improvement in how I feel.  I workout 3-6 times a week.  Besides feeling more tone, I love the little free time to myself and the mental clarity that  it gives me.  I feel like it makes me a better wife and mother.

2011 01 26_2147

Schedule “me time”- I know that a lot of people, especially moms, put everyone else first and sometimes never get around to doing anything for themselves.  So if you are one of those women,  I am giving you permission to do something for yourself.  By doing this, you are really helping you and everyone else around you.  I know the better I feel, the better mom and wife I am! :)  Sometimes just painting my nails or taking a bath makes me feel refreshed and recharged.

2011 01 26_2149

De-clutter- Try to de-clutter the things that are bothering you the most this week.  By doing this, you can really free up your mind.  I kept a bin in my kitchen all week and filled it up with things that I didn’t want/use anymore. I liked keeping the bin out because I really wanted to fill it up and sometimes I just need a place to put things I don’t want.  Then I brought it to my basement to get ready for my garage sale.

Start a schedule- This is next week’s challenge….organizing your schedule.  So start thinking about it and figuring what works best for you and your family.  You show me your schedule and I will show you mine…I love schedules so that should be a lot of fun!! :)

For more tips or organizing your mind, please read Organize Now!

So please try to organize your mind this week and tell us how you did that. 

How did you apply these goals to your life?

What do you do to help keep your mind sane and balanced?

We love reading about this so please share all!!!! 

Please grab a button if you are joining.

Link up your challenge below.

I can’t wait to see how you organize your mind! :)

Gator Pond at Busch Gardens

Gator Pond at Busch GardensDecember 16, 2010
When we first visited the resort where we ended up buying a vacation home I thought the cutesy warning signs about not feeding or antagonizing the alligators were meant to add a bit of humour.  By the end of that first trip in 2009 I realized the alligators were very much real.  We bought in March of 2010 but didn't see our new vacation home until May

A Simple January Vignette

2011 01 24_2127

It felt so good to put all my Christmas decor away!  I LOVE Christmas decorating but after the new year when it is all put away, my house just feels so clean, simple and fresh!   LOVE that!!! :)

I kept my house totally “undecorated” meaning I didn’t put anything back that I took away for my Christmas stuff.  (except for the bigger stuff).

It took me a couple of days to get used to it but I LOVED having less stuff around! 

But this week I was itching to bring a couple of new, fresh items out!

2011 01 24_2126

So I decorated my favorite little table in my house.

2011 01 24_2128

This is one of the first things that you can see when you enter my house.  I love this little table and bought it a couple years ago from a garage sale for only $30! Boo-Yah!!!

2011 01 24_2129

I knew I wanted to use this frame that I bought from a garage sale over the summer. 

2011 01 24_2130

So on Saturday, I took pictures of my little kiddos to fit the frame.

2011 01 24_2131

I wanted to take new 2011 pictures that would be neutral and match my house.

 2011 01 24_2132

So I used my house as the background…I knew that would match, lol!

2011 01 24_2133

Then I added a couple of other light  accessories.

2011 01 24_2134

I wanted a simple and fresh look! :)

2011 01 24_2135

And I just had to add a little pot of flowers.

2011 01 24_2136

I LOVE flowers…even though these are fake.  Shhh, lol! :)

2011 01 24_2141

I am really happy how my little vignette turned out!

2011 01 24_2139

Simple. Clean. Fresh. Light.

2011 01 24_21372011 01 24_2138

What kind of decorating did you do after you put all the Christmas decor away?

Did you cut back?

Did you change it up at all?

Have a great day! :)

Powder Puff Plant (Calliandra haematocephala)

Powder Puff Plant (Calliandra haematocephala)December 16, 2010

As we were wandering through Busch Gardens I couldn't help but notice the Powder Puff Plant (Calliandra haematocephala).  The leaves reminded me of Mimosa (sensitive fern) so I just had to touch them.  They don't fold up like Mimosa does but they were still quite pretty.  The Powder Puff Plant was planted to form a barrier between

Bamboo Fence

Bamboo Fence at Busch GardensDecember 16, 2010
During our visit to Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida I noticed the effective use of bamboo as a living screen and bamboo sticks as camouflage screening.  Bamboo grows quickly and rather tall making it ideal for use as a living privacy screening not only from side views but also views from taller adjacent buildings.   It can help as a sound barrier as

Organize your Life Party and a Giveaway!!!!

Organize your LIFE

Hello everyone!  I am sooooo excited about this post!  I have been waiting to share this with you for a long time now!  I have been wanting to host an organizing party for months now and I am finally going to do it!!!!

Back in September, when my husband and I took a weekend getaway to Florida,  I found my new favorite organizing book!  Because we were without kids, we were able to spend some quality time at the bookstore looking for books to get.  Ha, yes..that is fun for me, lol!  I love going to the bookstore, getting a coffee and flipping through the books WITHOUT the kids!

2011 01 23_2114

Anyway,  I found a book called Organize Now! by Jennifer Ford Berry. 

2011 01 23_2113
