We took chilling in the driveway to a new level

I know many of you have those cute little patio sets to relax and watch TV in the great outdoors. When we were growing up, my dad was working in his shop and my mama never came out and me and my brother just played outside. In these day and times, I want my eyes on my kids when they are outside. Living the neighborhood life in Myrtle Beach sitting in the driveway is the closest way to the action. So last Christmas we put us a little TV in the garage and Joseph would get us a little bonfire going and it was so nice to be out while the kids were playing.

As I was sitting in our beach chairs in the driveway while watching TV one day I decided there had to be a more comfy way to enjoy this lifestyle.

In comes the ALPS Mountaineering Escape Camp Chair for under $50 and living up to the slogan, “The Escape Chair is meant for you to sit back, relax and put your feet up … literally” with its super cool footrest! I love this chair and I am so glad we splurged and bought them!

Got rid of 3 cleaning tools for THIS ONE

Had my eye on the cordless Dyson for $400, but did NOT want to spend that much. So I found this off brand Inse Cordless Vacuum that is currently unavailable, but doing some research you can find others that look to be comparable.

I only spent $130 and I am loving it! This actually replaced my Swiffer, a handheld vacuum and my Dyson vacuum we got almost 10 years ago for a wedding gift that had started to break on me.

We don’t have a place to mount the vacuum, but if we did that would take this vacuum up to a-whole-nother level!

If I keep it on the low speed and can do the whole house which is a 3-bedroom on one battery. If I am just doing a quick kitchen and living room or cleaning out the cars then I will use the high speed.

I am just so happy how clean our house feels, with dog coming in and out and Joseph’s work shoes coming in and out and kids running in and out-lots of dirt is tracked in the house, lol. So this purchase has been one of my favorites!

2Pcs Electric Automatic Water & Drink Dispenser,Magic Eletric Tap Spill Proof Beverage Tap Fruit Milk Juice Drinks Suck Tools For Home Party Outdoor Kitchen

TikTok made me buy it! And I am so thankful! JJ can easily, WITHOUT making a mess, get her drink and let us sleep, haha!

We have a MagicTap in her milk gallon jug and then I saved an old milk jug to put her juice in so she can get whatever her heart desires! ***You will need 2 AA batteries

The Magic Tab draws liquid from jug and you press trigger with cup like a fountain drink and the liquid dispenses in your cup! You won’t regret this purchase!


Y’all know I loved my Loopy Case! But I was always needing my debit card and license, so I started the hunt for the perfect case/wallet for me after seeing what others were using. Because I do like how helpful the loop/popsocket is to help me hold my phone, but with the Loopy there is no where for the wallet to attach to the back of my phone case.

In steps this product! I just bought a random basic case that I could attach this PopSocket to and I have loved it!

You can remove the wallet and I can actually use the wireless charging capabilities of my phone where I could not with the Loopy because it could not lay flat on the charger.

If you already have enough in your hands, this wallet is for you because we know our phone is always with us and now our card/license will be too!

Mrs. Meyer’s is my favorite way to keep house smelling fresh

I got the first bottle of this Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner from that Grove order that I did, but of course Amazon has it!

Once our outdoor grill bites the dust, we are going to replace the grill AND the air fryer with this do-it-all appliance! Joseph’s parents has one and sold me on it! Steaks, hamburgers, anything that I would normally put in the air fryer-and we all know I use the heck out of my air fryer!

The next appliance on my wishlist is this helpful chopper. Joseph’s sister cut up chicken for a pizza in NO TIME!

A little extra cleaning

I watched a motivating video on Facebook about cleaning, so Saturday I spent 4 solid hours cleaning, she spent 7 hours in the video-but I thought I better save something for Spring Break, lol.

Mama reminded me about using a Magic Eraser to clean tubs.

The Robot vacuumed for us while we were at basketball. JJ did her usual chores, cleaned mirrors, took trash out of bathroom and her new job was to scrub the sinks and tubs with the Magic Eraser. So impressed with the result, but Joseph said he didn’t notice 😦

I did my usual chores…dusted, swiffer, cleaned toilets, mopped. But I also cleaned inside and outside of windows, I moved furniture to get lots of hidden dust bunnies. I wiped down the baseboards.

I ordered some cleaning items from Grove, to better keep surfaces wiped down more regularly, instead of waiting on cleaning day Saturday. I can’t wait to borrow or buy one of those steamers to get the grout cleaned. I want to go through each room and get rid of clothes and stuff and better organize over Spring Break.

Popcorn lovers

Having a spend the night made me bust out the popper that we love, but sometimes don’t take the time to use, faster to use the microwave kind. Whirley Pop makes perfect movie popcorn everytime! Lots of different kernels and butter to buy to use, but this is our favorite!
