The International Space Station

Yay, thanks to the local TV station WTHR-TV13's Facebook post on last Thursday night, I got to see the International Space Station passing over the sky here in central Indiana!  I mean the International Space Station is so far out in the space, so you can only see a bright light moving fast over the sky, but it was an amazing sight. I wish my children got to see it:-(  It was around 9:42p.m., so my girls were already in bed....

Anyway, I did some research and found out that NASA actually has a free service called spot the Space Station. This service will  notify you of "good" sighting chance of the International Space Station in your area. I've immediately signed up:-) I am hoping that my girls can join me next time to spot the Space Station. I think this is a fun and a very educational activity for any children/adults. The best part of this activity is that it's FREE! If you are interested in spotting the International Space Station from your backyard, try visiting http://spotthestation.nasa.gov for more information. Good luck!

Recycled T-Shirt Necklace

I saw so many people creating their own necklace/scarf out of their old t-shirt, so I've decided to try to make one for myself. I watched the video on marthastewart.com (T-Shirt Necklace with Queen Latifah)
and I kind of followed the directions on how to make this.

All I used for this project was 1 old t-shirt and a pair of scissors! No sewing was required:-) Just take a look at the pictures.  I cut my old t-shirt in loops, stretched every single one of them, and tied them all together with a leftover strip.



When I showed this necklace to my husband, he thought that I had purchased it from the store! I absolutely love this and it was a fun craft project to do with my daughters.  If you have some old t-shirts, make some pretty necklaces! It saves money and it's fun! If you are really good at making a different variations of t-shirt necklaces, you could sell your t-shirt necklaces on Etsy to make some extra income as well.  Happy Crafting!

Lysol® Touch of Foam™ Review


**Disclosure-I received a full size bottle of Lysol Touch of Foam Antibacterial Hand Wash and 10 coupons for free from BzzAgent.  Although I was given the product for free to review, the opinions of this product is 100% my own honest opinion based on my experience using the product.



The package from Bzzagent

I'm a BzzAgent and got my first BzzKit from BzzAgent.com!  I received a full size bottle of New Lysol Touch of Foam Antibacterial Hand Wash soap  and coupons.  My family is used to using a liquid hand soap, so I was excited to try this new soap. 

I had my children try out the soap first and they loved it. My 4 year old usually has a hard time lathering liquid soap, so Lysol Touch of Foam Antibacterial Hand Wash soap really helped her out. One squirt gave her just the right amount that she needed. Also, her foam/lather never disappeared until she rinsed her hands. Both of my girls said,  "this soap feels so soft and smells really good!"  My 8 year old loved the smell so much that she did not want to rinse the soap off of her hands.  

I tried the soap after my girls and I loved it, too!  My hands felt very soft after washing. Nice smell lasted even long after washing my hands. This product also claims that it kills 99.9% of germs and Moisturizer-enriched micro-bubbles will leave hands very soft.  I'm a germ freak with sensitive skin, so this soap definitely serves me and my family well. In addition,  Lysol Touch of Foam Antibacterial Hand Wash soap are available in three great scents listed below: 

Creamy Vanilla Orchird - This is what I received and I loved it! 
Rose & Cherry in Bloom
Wild Berry Bliss


The only drawback that I noticed on this soap was that this soap seems to run out very quickly compare to a liquid soap.  Other than that I give this soap an A+!
