new thing

Ever since I saw a pin on Pinterest about washing your fruit with vinegar, I have been researching it a lot! It is reported that cleaning fruits and vegetables with vinegar can kill approximately 98 percent of bacteria. 

There are so many different variations, but in the end I have started using an apple cider vinegar wash in a bowl (you can use white vinegar too). Basically you fill a bowl with one part apple cider vinegar and 3 parts water (or something similar) and you let them soak and mix the berries gently. After soaking you wash them in cold water and pat dry. Easy! (I was shocked by the dirt at the bottom of my bowl.)

For hard skinned fruits and vegetables, you can fill a spray bottle with vinegar and spray them directly and then rinse under water.

Here are some resources I found:

I feel better knowing the fruit and vegetables my kids are eating are pretty free of bacteria and dirt.

we started

I read in Tim Tebow's book, Through My Eyes, that his parents would reward each of their kids with $1 whenever a grown up would comment on their character. I loved it so much we have started implementing it. Teaches kids what is most important, having good character. My kids totally get it too.

i wish

I love the "Seventies" Medium Boston Bag by Gucci
I spotted it on Bethenny Frankel at 
If I had an extra $1800 sitting around I would definitely buy it. 
A girl can dream!

When you let the baby get dressed by himself, he will inevitably go find his brother's swim goggles, his sister's floaties, and a sword. And he will wear it all with just a diaper on. I love two year olds.
