Skoy Cloth - Review

I am not sure about you, but I know that we use TONS of paper towels in our house!
Is there a spill?
Get a paper towel. Is there water from me cleaning the nine million bottles? Just get a paper towel. Time to wipe down the counter, You guessed it... Get a paper towel!

I have been hearing so much about Skoy Cloth and now I can add my own opinion!
They are great!
Not only are they just absolutely too cute to look at, they do work!


From their website:
USE Wet your SKOY cloth before using. Be sure to squeeze out the excess water for optimal absorption. It can be used with popular household cleaners, but works just as well with water. Note: Rinse cloth very well when combined with dish soap in order not to leave residue. We recommend that after your SKOY cloth has passed its prime, it can be used as a rag for heavier cleaning. Chlorine-use is not recommended. CARE The SKOY can be cleaned in your dishwasher and is washer and dryer safe up to 90°C (190°F). Another option to keep your SKOY…

Our Book Club

Back when I used to have a job... ( As a manager of a sports bar and grill)
Well, that was like a year ago... But anyways, We decided that since we all enjoyed reading so much that we would start a book club.
The first book that we chose to read was, CHANGE OF HEART by Jodi Picoult.
Okay, lets start by asking this... How many of you have ever read a Jodi Picoult book?
At this point, I never had... But, we read it... and LOVED IT!
Her book was awesome!

Synopsis:Shay Bourne - New Hampshire’s first death row prisoner in 69 years – has only one last request: to donate his heart post-execution to the sister of his victim, who is looking for a transplant. Bourne says it’s the only way he can redeem himself…but with lethal injection as his form of execution, this is medically impossible. Enter Father Michael Wright, a young local priest. Called in as Shay’s spiritual advisor, he knows redemption has nothing to do with organ donation – and plans to convince Bourne. But then Bourne begins to perfo…

So, for MY ALOHA FRIDAY Question... What did you do for New Years Eve?
I read a book with my sick baby on my lap... Finally got him to sleep, and went to my parents room to watch the ball drop... 5...4...3...2...1.... HAPPY NEW YEARS!
Now, I am heading to bed... LOL, very exciting, I know...
Hope this year is full of everything and more for you all!!!!!

New Years Eve and Diggers

Well, this feels kind of crazy!
For AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER, I have worked on New Years Eve.Actually, I have worked for pretty much all holidays/celebrations...
I am 30 years old and I have had a job since I was 15! But, that is not the point!

Last year, the job I had for the previous 10 years decided to shut its doors, with NYE being the LAST night of Diggers... (Diggers is the name of the place I worked at!) I was 7 months pregnant and when I got off of work (this time around 11:30 ish) I headed home to ring in the New Year with the hubby and his sons... It was a nice change to be able to spend time with my husband... but it SUCKED that it was the LAST night I would ever walk into Diggers. You know, that was my family!
I moved up there at the age of 19, got a job immediately and that "job" became a second family/home.
They were there through it all... Birthdays/Death/Marriage/Pregnancy Anyways, I could ramble on forever about that... All I wanted to say was that with tonight …

Speaking of not for everyone... Have you heard all the hoop-la over this new show on MTV, called Jersey Shore?
Well, we watched it the other night... I hate to say it, but come on now... These people are killing me!
They say it is supposed to be all about "the Jersey Shore" and representing "Italian Americans", Ummmmmmmmmmmmm I DO NOT THINK SO!
