Companies I Love

In the last few months I have started ordering from 2 different companies that I am so happy with!!! The first one is Redmond's. I buy and love their salt called Real Salt. It is so flavorful and contrary to popular belief it is healthy! It is unrefined and full of natural minerals. I have started using their garlic and onion salt as well. I also use Redmond's Clay. I use it on stings, bites, warts and right now I am using it on a cyst. Don't know if it will work for that but I will let you know. Clay has so many uses! Don't believe me... just google it and you will find lots of interesting info.The last product of Redmond's that I am using and blown away by is EarthPaste. Now that i have been using this toothpaste I don't think I could ever go back to my old toothpaste. Not only does it feel like I had my teeth cleaned every time I brush my teeth but I feel so much better about the small list of ingredients! Have you ever looked at the ingredient list of your regular tooth paste? Kind of scary!

The other company that I am super happy with is Cultures for Health. They sell lots of different culture starters, cheese making products, sprouted grains and more. I have ordered multiple starters and been very happy! Their costumer service has been AMAZING! They are always so helpful and knowledgeable when I call and the starters have been great!

I have not been given any free products and don't have any affiliation with either of the companies. I just like to share when I find products or companies that I love! Any products or companies that you love?

Worthy of Pinterest or Pintrosity?

I know everyone knows about Pinterest but have you heard of Pintrosity? It is a blog showcasing pinterest ideas gone wrong. People showcase what they made, how it turned out and how it was supposed to turn out. There are also troubleshooting tips to some common mistakes on popular pins. Not only is this blog helpful and funny but it makes me feel better that I am not the only one with so many missteps! So while I love Pinterest for so many cool ideas
that I find like these cute Christmas trees I just made after seeing them here I also get frustrated with Pinterest too because of the many failed attempts like this one: I loved the wreath after seeing it here so of course I couldn't wait to make one!I collected the acorns, spent time washing and drying them, hot gluing them on and then painting them but those silly acorns are falling off like crazy!! This could totally be on Pintrosity!!

Hot Chocolate Bar

One of our advent activities this year was to have a hot chocolate bar. It was a hit! I got the idea from Pinterest. We had hot chocolate mix, sprinkles for the rim of the mugs, candy cane stir sticks, crushed candy cane, marshmellows, and my favorite...homemade whip cream! YUM!

Turkey Trot

Ellie and I participated in the local turkey trot 1 mile fun run again this year. We plan on this being a tradition and are looking forward to Emily and Chris joining us next year. It is such a great way to start off our Thanksgiving morning. Last year we ran it in 12:36 and this year 11:15...GO ELLIE!
