We got to do a lot of fun stuff we didn't plan, like check out dinosaur bones and see First nation settlements in Alberta. Fun stuff we DID plan like spend an entire day at the amusement park at the West Edmonton Mall and stay in some really interesting places (like the Toad River Lodge. Their Rueben sandwiches btw are to die for!!) We arrived in Fairbanks in the middle of July when the weather was fabulous and the sun barely set. The hotel was fabulous and set us up with a suite and we got to do some exploring before we moved into our new house.
|This is my house. Nice huh?|
This of course means that my cleaning supplies list changed too. First things first, my caddy wasn't cutting it. I had a cheap dollar store bathroom caddy that I was using but is now relegated to holding my massive stock of sunlit morning scentsy. (it was being discontinued and is my favorite, so I bought every bar my consultant had!). So what I did was this:
This is my cleaning kit. Full Disclosure: I AM a Thirty One consultant (This is Thirty One btw) so I get mine at a 25% discount. This is the Organizing Tote which I freaking love. I have one for a gym bag, one for cleaning, one for a purse too. This one I had embroidered with "Sparkle" which is what I want my house to do. In the outside pockets Ii have pledge, Lysol wipes, rubber gloves, a spray bottle of water/vinegar for glass cleaner AND a spray bottle of Odoban. What is odoban you ask (do not work for, affiliated with etc Odoban. Just an enthusiast.)
I really do love my new home, so I'm going to leave you with three images. All taken from my back porch.
