Finishing Our Bathroom with IKEA!

Anyone else love IKEA?!  Every time I go there I'm amazed with how cheap everything is!  So when we needed to finish our bathroom upstairs naturally IKEA is the place to check first.  Sure enough I found items that matched our bathroom and style with the total being $26!!


A few years ago we bought a crappy house and completely gutted it.  It's mostly done but the upstairs bathroom has remained unfinished.  We have a pitched roof so our bathroom is part of what used to be yucky attic space.  Now it's a bathroom for average height people...lol  Also you'll notice there is no door (lol) that will be the last detail. :)


Here are the items I got from IKEA for $26:
Towel Bar (the 2 bars swing out)
Toilet Paper Holder (toilet paper not included lol)
Towel Hanger
Shower Curtain


Here my daughter is helping with the installation.  The finished job looks so great!
It will be nice to have towels and toilet paper not randomly sitting on things.
Yeah!

Another thing I love about IKEA …

Find it on Etsy GIVEAWAY: By Misty Jewelry! (US/CAN) -CLOSED-

Review by Aimee Winner

Have you heard of dichroic glass? First of all, I must say it's a thing of beauty!
By Misty from Etsy uses this type of glass in many of her pendants and earrings, which is a type of glass that will shift between two colors.  I was able to review one such pendant.  It is one nice peice of jewelry.  Not only is it a well HANDMADE piece of art, it's exactly what By Misty says on Etsy:

Please note that pictures will not do these pieces justice.  There is no way to fully capture the depth of color or the beauty of the piece until you hold it in your hand.  
I love that the color changes with what I wear, or the different angle it is being viewed.  When my husband first saw it, he took a second take and said: "wow, that is a really pretty necklace!"

Misty's work is inspired by a her life; by nature, her husbands love for water polo and sports, and her "LOVE" for Disney.  She includes many of these inspirations in her work.

REVIEW: Delivery.com!

I feel like this a lot.  And when I do want food delivered I'm not always in the mood for commonly deliverable pizza or chinese.  With Delivery.com you can get food delivered from LOTS of local places!! (depending on where you live)

At Delivery.com you can easily order food online from your favorite local restaurants for delivery or pick up. There are over half a million hungry users every month that order from thousands of restaurants in over 50 cities nationwide.


I tried it and the only hard part was choosing which restaurant I wanted food from :)  All you do is place an order online at Delivery.com, the order is then sent to the restaurant and then you choose to have it delivered or you can pick it up.  Super easy site to navigate!!

When I put in my zip code I was amazed at the restaurants that participated!  We chose to get food from Sage's Cafe and it was at my door in 35 minutes!!  Most of the restaurants in my area use a third party delivery service which adds a charge…

Utah Clear the Air Challenge!

My kids LOVE Trax!  They also love taking walks so this challenge has been a blast for them. :)  Utah has started a program where we can all work together to help our air quality.  The Utah Clear the Air Challenge runs from August 1st to the 31st and it's an opportunity to set goals and see how we can improve.

So far we have continued to walk when we can and I've combined my errands so I'm not making multiple trips to various places.  Also I'm not sure how helpful it is but I mowed our lawn using a push mower (non-electric, non-gas).  It's completely powered by me..lol

I have really enjoyed being involved in this challenge because it's helping me to be aware of my little family's impact on our environment.  I also want to show my kids good habits.  I recommend signing up even if it's only to set goals.

Here's what you do:
-Register at ClearTheAirChallenge.org
-Fill out your info and set goals
-Track your progress

There is a tracking system with Tra…

GIVEAWAY: $30 Wholesale Costume Club Item! -CLOSED-

Winner

Have you started looking for Halloween costumes yet?
WholesaleCostumeClub.com has a great selection and some new costumes for 2012!  Of course they have all of these Avengers plus about anything else you can think of.  Here are some of my favorites:
There are costumes for everybody and they are reasonably priced!  I love how the kid's costumes just become part of dress ups all year long.  That is always the first thing the kids go to when we have friends or cousins over.  :) I really wanted my husband to be the Bass head (lol) but then I found the Bacon and Eggs Adult Couples Costume.  I chose that one so we would both have a costume this year.  I still haven't decided which one I want to be..bacon, eggs?
Maybe whatever sounds good to me at the time. :)
I'm really happy with these costumes.  Not only is it a unique couple's costume, but it is also super easy to get on and off.  AND I can even wear the egg costume when I'm pregnant! lol  The costumes are bo…
