My Favorite Combo From Head to Toes

Everyone has those things that they just love. For me, there are lots of great combinations but here are some of my all time favorites.

5. A snuggly baby + baby lotion
4. A rainy day + a good book
3. Ice cream + homemade fudge sauce
2. Cleanly swept floors + bare feet

and my very favorite combo...

1. Clean sheets + shaved legs + and my freshly showered, smell good husband

Yes, I know, I'm a little bit odd but I'm ok with that and I know that I can't be the only one here who likes to cuddle with their freshly washed husband. There is nothing like the clean smell of soap and a hint of man at the end of a long and stressful day. There is a huge difference however in soap smells! There are a few that I like but my all time favorite is Old Spice.


Old Spice is the brand my husband used when we were dating and its the one he still uses today. There is just something about the scent that is amazing and I love how it lasts and I can still catch a hint of it at the end of a sweaty workday. My favorite news is that I can now enjoy my favorite spicy scent even more since Old Spice has expanded from Deodorant and now also carries body wash + 2-in-1 conditioner in all of my favorite scents.

This year, as you get ready for the stress of back to school try taking some relax time with your special someone and make sure that they are prepared by getting them their favorite Old Spice product (you can find some amazing savings here - expires 9/30/14). It will be worth every little bit of time and effort you spent to make it happen.



P.S. Old Spice hosted a poll that found a bunch of great combos that aren't on my list and created some great videos to go with. Check out their list for some great laughs (my favorite is below) and then let us know your favorite with a comment below.

Woman of Courage by Wanda Brunstetter

Courage - The ability to do something that frightens you.

As I've been thinking about the subject of courage it occurred to me that this is a term we tend to use to describe young men. This seems odd to me because as a woman I know that it often takes courage for me to face my tasks on a daily basis. Not because they are hard, but because they quickly become overwhelming ... and that frightens me.

One thing that I know helps me get thorough my days is learning about other peoples' lives and the trials that they had to face. As I read about how other people use their courage and faith to get through the rough times it is encouraging to me and helps me get through my bad days a little bit easier.

Recently I had the chance to read Wanda Brunstetter's Woman of Courage and thoroughly enjoyed it. The heroine, Amanda, is a Quaker woman who had her fiance leave her at the alter and decided to travel as a missionary to the western Native Americans. This trip ends up being quite the journey as she faces the loss of her father, death, capture and much more. You will love reading about her journey in faith, love and hope to find a people that are truly hers!

Welcome to the $150 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway Event

Pure Crafted Beds is a company who knows Beds. Their factory was started in 1946 and is still owned by the original family and into their third generation! They began by renovating porch furniture and mattresses in the 1940's, to a modern manufacturing facility located in Lansing, Michigan. They've been in business close to 70 years and have brought forth an amazing selection of products that will give you a great night's sleep. Your comfort is their business! Each bed is "hand-crafted" and they always strive to provide the best value for each customer, whether at $299 or $2,999. They carry two basic mattresses the TruEssence and TruSlumber. The only difference between the two beds is the core foam layer, and the TruSlumber bed does not have a base layer of foam. This helps reduce the overall height of the bed, which makes it perfect for children, bunk beds, and other situations where a thinner mattress is required! However the unsurpassed quality remains the same in both!

One of the most fantastic features of Pure Crafted Beds is their use of an innovative product called the Eco Shield Cover. Every Pure Crafted Bed has this unique EcoShield cover. This amazing cover is resistant to bed bugs, dust mites, mosquitoes, and moths... all without any artificial chemicals!
  ecoshield_banner 

The proprietary EcoShield fabric is infused with Geraniol, a natural plant extract which provides all natural protection. Many anti-bed bug and dust mite products on the market today use synthetic chemicals. EcoShield® is the first product that is truly 100% natural, with no artificial chemical additives that uses a unique micro-capsule delivery system for long-lasting effects! Through a special process the Geraniol is infused into our EcoSheild® cover, and is slowly released over time as movement occurs on the mattress.

EcoShield® is Scientifically Proven!
