Happy Friday all, hope your weekend is going great so far. Been struggling the past couple of days with hubby being sick, the oldest finishing up being sick, little one barely got sick..just a little cough and me..well so far so good. It's that time of year when the weather changes. One day it will be in the 20's, the next day it will be up toward the 60's and then back down to the 40's like today. Typical Michigan weather! So glad Spring will be here because I for one am tired of the cold and being cooped up in the house all winter. Little one loves to be outside and we are going to get her a new bike this weekend. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and now onto the hops!

I was excited yet apprehensive to be able to review a book called Pretty Neat: The Buttoned-Up Way to Get Organized & Let Go of Perfection. This book was written by the two creators of the buttoned up Organizational Products that are absolutely fantastic and helpful, Alicia Rockmore and Sarah Welch. I don't read too many books about organizing because I don't want to be told how to do things around my house. I have always been someone who likes to do things my way, that way I know where everything is and what needs to be done. I know that I needed some help especially help with keeping my cupboards, books, and desk organized. I also have a hard time with the girls rooms keeping them neat with their toys, coloring books and so much more. It seems that at times, we have a lot of clutter around our house and I definitely was intrigued by reading this book. I have NEVER read any kind of organizational book, but I read this one cover to cover and found a lot of great tips and methods that are simple and definitely would make anyone's life a lot easier for keeping their home neat and tidy.
The Pretty Neat book has organization tips for not only home but at work as well as taking charge of you to-do lists and schedules. It teaches you how to get organized for traveling with your kids, helping your kids help in cleaning up and even how to master a home cooked meal. This is all just for starters, there is plenty more great wisdom in the book as well. I have learned so much to get my house in complete order. I often found myself jotting down notes in a notebook to make sure that I didn't forget a certain tip when I came across it. I would highly recommend this book to everyone who needs a little help organizing your home, office, garage, or your household in general. I can't wait to get started!

Welcome to a new feature here at Mommy2TwoGirls! I always have lots of thoughts running through my head, whether it be life in general or news that I have heard on TV or seen on the internet, maybe some gossip that I have found in a magazine or heard on Entertainment Tonight. Whatever it is, I have random thoughts. So let me run some of these by you and have you comment!
*First off, let's start with the obvious big entertainment story: Charlie Sheen. He is what everyone seems to be talking about. Personally, I love Charlie Sheen, Two and a Half Men is one of my favorite shows. I kind of feel sorry for him in a way because we all really don't know for sure what is going on with him. Is he an alcoholic? Addicted to drugs? Addicted to porn or sex addict? Is he bi polar or maybe he has a mental problem? All of these have been theories on news journalists and everyone else, the bad thing is now that he got his kids taken away and refuses help. I heard someone say yesterday that he is following the same destructive path as Anna Nicole Smith and we all know what happened to her, unfortunately. I wish Charlie Sheen the best and hope that he will take his family's advice and seek help..before it's too late.
*Anyone watch the Oscars? Well I didn't but I heard that James Franco (who is very good looking by the way) didn't do such a good job as host. I personally can't sit through the Oscars, I know it's fun to watch what everybody is wearing and who is seen with who, but 4 hours? Congrats to Natalie Portman, I think she is a great actress. Am dying to see the Social Network, can't wait to get it through Netflix!
*Speaking of Netflix, any of you have it? I just subscribed to it last weekend and I am amazed at all of the possibilities. I have gotten several emails from them in the past to join, but have never been able to because I don't have a credit card. To find out that they now accept pay pal payments made it easier for me to join and now I can't imagine being without it. I am a couple of seasons behind on Desperate Housewives so I spent a few hours last weekend watching six episodes from last season. TV shows and movies, I will definitely be a Netfliz subscriber for a long time to come and would recommend it to everyone!
*Getting really bummed thinking about the upcoming NFL season not happening come September. It's all about money...why do people in this world have to be greedy?
*Tired of these rising gas prices! Last week we spent $60 to fill up our car twice..at $3.41 a gallon. Talk about more greed!
*Anyone watching American Idol? I'm not, I have a few episodes on the DVR, but haven't watched them yet. I think I have lost my interest in the show, although I love Steven Tyler. I think this show has finally run it's course.
*Survivor is on tonight..who are you rooting for? I am rooting for Boston Rob, love that guy!
*After a struggle the past couple of weeks, I am back on track to losing weight yet once again. I have hit the gym three days this week and have pushed my workout time to almost an hour. Feeling pretty good.
*Looking forward to spring and the warmer weather, tired of snow and being stuck in the house. Looking forward to the oldest daughter playing soccer, I even get to be an assistant coach this season.
Have a great evening!
