CarID Car Mats

Winter is here and my vehicle knows it! My Chevy Tahoe is taking a beating with all the muddy snow going in and out of it. I try to keep it as clean as I can of course, but when my four children are parading in and out of it… well things get a little messy. The weather isn’t helping much either. Thankfully there are just a simple things I can do to help keep up with the mess and turn clean up time into a faster, easier experience. I took a look around at the car mats for my Tahoe. I figure I could use an update for sure. At first I really wanted to go with something attractive and fashionable but then I found the RubberTite All-Weather Floor Mats. Perfect! They are simple, sleek floor mats that are designed specifically for my make, model, and year vehicle and they are ideal for the weather in my area.

LLOYD® - RubberTite™ All-Weather Floor Mats

I really like the overall design and the variety of colors and shapes/prices. I looked around Carid’s site and found the mats that were perfect for me. I simply entered my vehicle information and was able to view all the different options for my Tahoe. The All-Weather Floor Mats are designed to trap liquid, mud, dirt, etc. I live on a gravel road in southern Iowa and with all the dust in the spring and summer and snow in the winter, the All-Weather mats will make a great fit! They are available in black, grey, tan, and crystal clear. I had a lot of options to choose from. I decided to go with tan because it matches my leather interior. I also had the option to purchase a couple of different styles. They have the one piece front mat, two piece front mat set, one piece back mat set, and cargo set. I went with both the front and back sets and for a good price too; only $44.91 for the front and $35.91 for the back set. They are solid, well made mats and should last a long time which is exactly what I need.

Check out these car mats if you are looking for a nice set for your car and want to grab them at a decent price. I recommend them to all my readers, you will not be disappointed.

Savory Sundays: Fat Boys, Yummo!

Nothing better than a thick steak right? Guess again! Want to know what’s even better? A steak packed with Fat Boy’s Ride Em’ Cowgirl Steak Rub. Mm. Go to your local super market and grab up some! It is so good. The best steak I have ever had!


Pledge Multi Surface Cleaner Review

Remember a while back when I bought the Pledge Multi Purpose Wipes? Um. Yeah. I was in love! Well I was disappointed that the packaging was so small. I did some looking around and found the exact same cleaner in a spray. Of course I bought it and have great news!

Pledge Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner is exactly what it is called, an everyday cleaner and much more! This is how my cleaning past looked: grab four bottles of cleaners and then three or four rags and go around cleaning the tables, furniture, electronics, etc with a handful of cleaners. Present: one cleaner and one rag. It’s really amazing. I can’t thank Pledge enough for making my everyday chores 10 times easier. I can use my Pledge on everything and it actually saves me money because I am buying less cleaners. It’s remarkable.

The multi surface cleaner is residue free. I was a little worried because when I went to buy it, there were two ladies standing in the aisle talking about how they heard it left a greasy film. Eh. I grabbed it anyway and no residue whatsoever. I have used it on practically everything, the television, glass tables, wood, counters, and even the microwave. It’s my go getter! I don’t see myself purchasing other cleaners any time soon. Why would I? I get it all with one brand in one bottle and I can rely on it. It gets better too, it’s fragrance free and hypoallergenic. Can’t beat that! Pledge also provides a very detailed label that includes the surfaces it can be used on, cautions, manufacturer information, and directions.

I recommend trying Pledge Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner. It has made my life so much easier!

Compatible on the following surfaces: wood, wood laminate, glass, mirrors, stainless steel, plastics, granite, marble, chrome, electronics, and more!

I found these on Amazon for around $30. To die for! There are a nice brown and will go with anything neutral. You have to grab up these Liliana Women’s Kathy Pumps.

New Years 2011

This New Year’s will be the first in a very long time that I will have no children running around my house. The boys will be at their mother’s and the girls at the father’s place. So my hubby and I decided to go big and do something special, exciting… and well memorable this year! He narrowed down going to either Chicago or St. Louis for a big NYE party. Chicago sounds much more appealing to me. And wall a! I found the Official Playboy NYE Party in Chicago at the Hilton. Bingo. This is going to be so much fun! We bought our tickets and are now planning our trip. We don’t do this kind of thing very often so, I am going big. I have been in search of a party dress and found the site Simply Dresses and found a huge selection of dresses. Now I just have to decide which one to get.

I have narrowed it down to two dresses. Dress number 1 is a sleek black by Mori Lee 721. It’s simple, elegant, and sexy. I figure due to the event, I should go with something elegant and traditional rather than flashy.

The second dress is another favorite I found. It has black and white so it pops a little more. But I haven’t completely decided if I should go with some white or all black for New Years. I have no idea. It is a Mori Lee 735.

Both dresses are to die for. I don’t have a clue how I am going to make up my mind. Maybe some advice? Either way, I am very positive that I will buy it at Simply Dresses. I just love the site. I looked at five different web sites and none compared to this one. Now I just have to make up my mind.

What are your plans for New Year’s Eve? Doing something big? Let’s hear about it!

30 Day Memoirs: the tale of a picture #21

I am a bit of a lunatic when it comes to keeping my home clean. I don’t think it needs to be spotless, but I hate clutter and really dislike dust. I discovered Pledge multi surface cleaner wipes and though those were great. Well, I was disappointed that they came in such a small package. So when I moved into my new house and went to stock up on cleaners I found the same thing in a bottle. I love it! I can clean practically everything in my house with one can. Awesome. Thanks Pledge for making my life easier. *hugs*

Review on Pledge cleaner coming soon!

Birthday Decisions

My dad’s birthday is coming up on December 14th. I have been contemplating about what to get him. I swear men are so difficult to shop for. Especially parents because they are always like “oh don’t get me anything.” I can never get this man to tell me something he wants!!! Meh. Anyway, he is a big coffee drinker like me so I was browsing Wal Mart today and found a single serve coffee maker and was like oh perfect! He will love this! He waits for a cup of coffee every morning, fills it up, and then heads to work. So why not get him a single serve with travel mug? I think he is going to love it! I found one for $51.99 and then decided to take a look at Amazon tonight and found one for $29.99. A great deal! Now I just hope it gets here in time for his birthday.
