14 Great DIY Projects | I’m Lovin’ It Features


This weekend kind of flew by.  Maybe because I feel like we never had a weekend.  Monday was a holiday.  Tuesday I had to take Allison back to the pediatrician, since the round of antibiotics the week before didn’t kick her cough, so she was home from school.  Wednesday they had a half day of school.  Thursday brought snow and ice that basically shut down St. Louis for two days.  I baked a cobbler that boiled over, so I got to try the Auqualift Technology to clean my oven (a little water and elbow grease and it was clean in an hour, with no yucky smell)  Friday night, I did make it out.  I learned a new way to tie my scarf, then the girls and I went to see  Silver Linings Playboook, thank to Shaina’s suggestion…it was every bit as good as she promised.  Go see it!  Saturday I ran a few errands, and picked up something that may change my life. If you have pets that shed, look for the FurGoPet deshedder, I found it at Target. WHEW……..  Today I’m overcome with the desire to get creative!

    I have the FURminator grooming tool for my long haired cat and love it. It was a lot more expensive, but I lucked out and purchased it at a special 50% off sale! It is amazing how much hair comes off each time she gets brushed. The FurGo Pet brush looks like the same idea and the reviews are excellent as well. Really cuts down on the shedding.
