Glow Stick Valentines with FREE Printable

Feel FREE to print off the valentine below for your own. It works best if you set it to print them at the 2.5x3.5 size with 8 on a page.

Then just put hole punches above and below the heart and slip your glow stick through the holes.

You can read a review on the Glow Sticks and see how we did a Dance Party with the glow sticks click on the post on Save Green Being Green.

#ad Review: Francois et Mimi Double Fruit Basket

My Thoughts: I was excited to review this Francois et Mimi Double Hammock Fruit Basket because it looks very attractive and was going to help free up counter space. I used to have 2 bowls sitting on the counter full of fruit but it took up so much space on the counter, so going vertical with my space was a smart option so that I could free up counter space. In the picture I have included the bottom row of bananas is 5 wide. I think I could have easily gone about 8 wide and fit them all in. In the top basket in the above picture is 2 very large apples and a large kiwi. Right now I have it filled with 6 grapefruit and 4 apples in the bottom basket and 15 clementines.

Product Description from Francios et Mimi:
  • Made of Iron
  • Two-Tier to hold more fruit 
  • Elegant Design
  • Made to last
  • Comes in beautiful gift box

#ad GIVEAWAY: CleanRest Pillow Encasements from Orkin

My Thoughts: Bed bugs can get in to your home at any time, especially if you travel. They can be good at hiding and get in your luggage or purse on on your clothes or attach to you pillow if you bring it with you. If you bring your own pillow with you when you travel, as many people do, because we become accustomed to sleeping with a certain pillow and other pillow may cause discomfort, then you need to protect your self from bringing bed bugs home on your pillow by covering your pillow with a quality pillow protector and washing your protector and case in hot water before using at home.

Overnight Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Don't let lack of time in the morning stop you from making a healthy breakfast for your family. Plan ahead just a little and throw this recipe in the slow cooker before you head to bed. Then as everyone is getting ready they can head over to the slow cooker and scoop themselves out a bowl, no need to be hanging out in the kitchen cooking and serving everyone.

Overnight Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Makes 3 servings

* 2 1/2 C milk (cow, almond, rice, etc.)
* 1/2 C water
* 3 tsp. stevia
* 1 tsp molasses
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 1/2 tsp cinnamon
* 1 1/4 C old-fashioned oats
* 1 C peeled, chopped apple
* 1/8 C pecans or walnuts, chopped

DIRECTIONS - Spray the inside of a 3-4 qt. slow cooker. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and mix well. Cover and turn cooker to "low" setting. Cook overnight or for about 8 hours. Stir well before serving. Tastes great topped with a little whipped topping.  If your slow cooker is larger than 3-4 qts, double this recipe. Size matters with this recipe. The ingredients should fill the cooker at least halfway, but no more than 2/3.
