I Just Thought You Should Know...

It's Saturday, so here we go again.  Here is my list of things that I feel I need to share with you this week....



Watch This...

I just finished watching something that I feel everyone should be required to watch.
It should be shown in every health class in every high school all over the country and if you are out of school, you should definitely take the time to watch it on your own.
Should you choose to watch it.....and I hope that you will....it will change your life forever.

The Weight of the Nation is a 4 part HBO documentary addressing the epidemic of obesity in our country today.  The information in the film will stagger you, humble you, and bring tears to your eyes.  The third part of the film is exceptionally hard to watch because it focuses on children and the bleak future that our kids will face if we don't change our lifestyles soon.  I don't care if you are thin, fat, tall, short, young or old, this is information that every person should have and know. 
If you're like me, you may think you've heard it all concerning weight loss and diet and exercise, but I learned very quickly that I was wrong.  If you click on the picture above, it will take you directly to HBO's website where you can watch all 4 parts of the film in it's entirety. 

It's a life changer..                                                              .....I just thought you should know.


Helpful Tip..

I have recently started making my own laundry detergent and I am very pleased with the results.  It costs very little, it's easy to make, and lasts forever. If you are interested in making your own detergent just click here..  http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/laundrysoap.htm .   I found during my search that almost all of the thousands of recipes on the Internet are the same, but this is a website that has probably the most widely used recipe out there.
Just be warned that when your hubby comes in the kitchen and thinks you're cooking something for dinner and he finds out it's really soap, he'll think you've lost your marbles. 
During my search for my detergent recipe, I ran across tons of tips for saving money and the one that is soo simple and easy to do is to cut your dryer sheets in half

Yep, you get the same static cling resistance, same springy fresh smell, (if you prefer a fragrance) but your dyer sheets will go twice as far. 
It's simple, it's easy and it's cheap                                        .....I just thought you should know.


My Yard

This what my yard looked like last week..

                                                                                                                    ...ugh.
                                                           .....yuk.

But now it looks like this..


and this..

Okay, I know it doesn't look like much yet, but soon it will be green, luscious, grass.....
I will no longer cringe as I pull in my drive way and it shall be glorious.

Product Review

Remember this stuff?..

The Miracle Skin Transformer Body I received in my BirchBox.
Well, I tried it...

It's like foundation for your body.  It's pretty thick and hard to spread over the skin, but I did notice a difference in the way my skin looked.  Basically a tinted moisturizer for the body, I find that I am not sure it's worth the money.  If you have something to cover up, why not just use actual make-up?  Also, I didn't think it stayed on that long, it either rubbed off or soaked in and I looked just like the old me with freckles and scars and all. 
So I guess my opinion is this...it's okay, but should you buy it?....Well, you can decide that, but I doubt I will be purchasing it anytime soon.                                   .....I just thought you should know
