Can't live without.....

Borax, seriously this stuff is amazing. Even Tedd loves it!!!! He looks forward to cleaning becuase we have something that actually works well, and that I make myself! Here's the recipe for my clean all....and I mean all. I use it on counter tops, carpet, bathrooms, floors, clothing stains, glass, dining room table....basically anything I can spray it on I do!

All Purpose Cleaner
Mix together 1 quart warm water, 1 tsp liquid soap, 1 tsp borax and 1/4 C white vinegar. Put in a spray bottle!

I mix it all in my spray bottle, but put the water in first! If you add the other ingredients first you'll just have a bubble mess everywhere.

I tend to add just a tiny but more borax and little bit less vinegar you don't have to, I just
always worry about the vinegar being to harsh on something.

I also add a 1/2 Cup of Borax to every load of laundry. It's cheap and works better than oxyclean as a laundry booster!

p.s. I buy mine at Target or Walmart it's the cheapest I've found


Okay, don't judge this next one.....

The Twilight Soundtrack, I know lame....but I actually LOVE it!

I listen to it in the car, working out, whenever I need a pick me up! I bought mine on itunes (CD cases are such a waste of space to me)

I really probably just wanted an excuse to blog about twilight without looking like a freak. I don' think I accomplished that though :(.


My Jane Austen: The Complete Novels

In one handy book I have all of my Jane Austen Favs at hand whenever I need a fix. I take this book everywhere.


And lastly, my Library Card......

This little rascal brings me hours and hours of enjoyment. Not only to I get to read books for free (granted if I had the amazing built in bookshelves that I have in my dreams I would probably spend entirely too much money on books to fill them), but Liberty gets to take books home that she loves too! I've also started renting a few movies (mostly masterpiece theater ha). Go check out your local library today if you need something to do on this rainy Nashville, almost fall (yeah!!!) day.

Much love,

Current loves

.Here are some things I'm currently loving.

Radnor Lake on a rainy day = lots and lots of wildlife

We encountered lots of deer very close up, even walking across the path right in front of us and a fawn taking a rest next the the trail. Squirrels and chipmunks scurried up trees as we passed, but allowed Liberty to take a look at them before they went.

{Honest to goodness fawn nestled in some leaves 10 feet from us, didn't phase him at all!}

{Curved tree trunks seem imperfect, but how perfect are theses?!}

{Hard to see, but there was a deer ahead just munching away right next to the trail}

{I need a tree that has heart shaped leaves}

{I love that something dead can become something so beautiful}

Caution: must be 21 to enter

{Yard Dog Red Wine $11 YUM}

If you love Jane Austen movies....

{Seriously, try and get your hands on this, I used Netflix}

{I laughed, I cried, I couldn't stop watching}

{4 episodes BBC style, doesn't get much better, oh BBC you have my heart}

Much Love,
