earthkind®'s All Natural Air Fresheners Smell Like Home

I just moved for what I hope is the last time for a long time. We finally made the switch from renting to owning and it was quite the experience!

Moving always comes with a certain degree of chaos. For Type A personalities, it may be an organized sort of chaos, but some things are still beyond your control. No one in our household is Type A, and we have 4 small children, so the level of craziness was extreme.

After back-to-school, my next favorite time of year is the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte!  I'm #FallingForFall all over again this year!  (Oh who am I kidding, I live in Florida and it's still a billion degrees with a million percent humidity - but let's just pretend I experience 4 different seasons a year like the rest of you.)  Fall colors, sweater weather and mouse season are just a few of the things I love about this time of year.

Kari_Warberg_BlockGender equality, feminism, the women's movement, sexism...these are all loaded words. They are all important issues that affect all of us, both subtly and overtly. These words become causes for people to champion for or against; they become the topic of legislation; they become fodder for TV, radio, and internet personalities.

Let's Get Cheesy Today - But Remember to Keep Pests Away!

Posted by Martha the Mouse Detective

Cheeseburgers.  What's not to love about a juicy, stacked, steaming, protein-packed patty of deliciousness known as a cheeseburger?  One of my favorite things about cheeseburgers is when you have an endless amount of options to pile a mile high.  The sights and scents of walking into a Fuddruckers or Five Guy’s are hard to beat!  A buffet of lettuce, tomato, bacon, avocado, all kinds of sauces, and an endless amount of cheese selections, all laid out for your eyes to indulge on.  Although, as awesome as a burger joint is to enjoy a mouth-watering feast, the best cheeseburger is always made in the company of your loved ones, sitting around a fire in your back yard or out by the lake.

Ants Attack Florida Beach

Posted by Rita Stadler

Sep 16, 2014 3:51:18 PM

Ant infestations can be especially troublesome during the summer.  A Florida beach community is contending with hordes of ants on the beach.  The Florida Times Union reports, “Ants are overrunning beach walkovers, leaving more than a few city residents beleaguered, bothered and bitten.”

While ants don’t generally pose a serious health threat (unless they are fire ants), they can still lessen people’s enjoyment of the outdoors.  Keeping ants away from outdoor spaces is virtually impossible, and not necessarily desirable since they are a “beneficial pest” that eats other nuisance pests.
