Day 5,  Monday: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don't have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member

HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!!!! And ohhhh no! A blog love affair? Ohh, in the beginning there was so many! I was a new mom and not knowing what I was doing on the internet, trying to save money and then we got pregnant with baby number two and things just kicked up a knotch and I was obsessed with..... Calley from +The Eco Chic! Yes. It's out. Thanks to this blog everyday in May #challenge. I was so obsessed that i won so many of her giveaways. Even after I took a break from a while, I subb'd to her blogs and read almost every single one. It was because of her I started cloth diapering and it was because of her that I became one of those crazy hippie moms. Yes, I admit and call myself crazy because I was for a while. But I'm over it. I know I will never move to Florida so I can be near her and now the famous (then too) Kim from +Dirty Diaper Laundry! I will also admit that I'm a bit jealous of all the fun things they can do together :(

But another, yes, another blogger/retailer that I was obsessed with and still am, I've only used a few other detergents on my cloth diapers.... is.... +Rockin Green Detergent, LLC! I watched every post and update she would make. I remember watching those videos and that she use to make the detergent out of her kitchen. I was also runner up from one of her first (or her first, I'm not sure) giveaway! It was called the Telephone Game! Look! I found the FB post where she announces the winners, yeah I think it was the first! Such a dork, right?! She was just about to celebrate 500 fans and now she's just shy of 50,000 fans! So go like her page and tell her +Cinella Reyes from The Mami Blog says hi and that I love her! lol Maybe she'll want to do a giveaway?! And I'm now not so much obsessed with her, I was at first because she saw a problem and created a solution, which us at moms all have those small issues that we face every single day, it's just amazing; but I am still obsessed with Rockin' Green. I think I have like 4 or 5 bags in our laundry room! lol Even in 2012 I was still blogging about it CLICK HERE!

Okay, so that's enough CRAZY GIRL talk for now. Please don't unsubscribe or unlike the Fan Page after reading this post... if you want to, you can follow me on Instagram, I don't come off so crazy on there :) I recently posted this pic on there of my most resent purchase of the detergent :)

Hope ya'll have a great Monday!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
