Living Room Inspiration Board and some Chip It! Love

Here I am tonight, just minding my own business, catching up on the day's blog posts of those I follow, and what does Rhoda at Southern Hospitality post?

Sherwin-Williams's Chip It! feature.

For the last couple of weeks, I've had this image saved to my desktop with a few others while I narrow down my favorites for a Living Room Redo Inspiration Board. The image shown was my winner (I'm sorry I don't know it's origin!), so I picked it to test drive the Chip It! feature.

Holy moly. Talk about the little things getting you excited -- but how cool is this!

Be sure to try out the Chip It! button so you’ll have it handy when you see an inspiration pic you want to try out. You can get the Chip It! button just like the Pin It button for Pinterest. Once you go to the site, you can drag and drop the button to your tool bar just like the Pin It button.

Playing around, I also decided to Chip It! to this picture, taken the day my husband proposed, standing in the spot where he proposed, along side the Tidal Basin at the National Mall in Washington, DC during the 2006 Cherry Blossom Festival.

If you Chip It! to an image, I'd love to see it -- post a link to your image in the comments section of my blog.

It gets better. Rhoda is having a contest to win a $1,000 Visa Gift Card and $250 Sherwin-Williams Gift Card -- you can head over to her blog and register to win (all methods of registaion are listed on her blog). Get over there and enter to win!

Cleaning a Pack-n-Play

My mommy friends often ask me how to clean a Pack-n-Play. Likely because my toddler is all about making the biggest messes possible. After a few rounds of taking a damp rag to it like the manual suggests (HA), I thought, there has to be a more effective way to do this. Look at that dingy grossness:

So what does Pinterest suggest we use to clean, like, everything? Dawn and White Vinegar. I'll try anything once.

Here's how it went down:

1) Filled a bathtub with hot hot hot water, 1 c Dawn and 2 c White Vinegar.

2) Folded up the Pack-n-Play, shaking out any crumbs (there are always crumbs), and laid the whole thing down into the hot bath. I ran my hands along the netting and material to agitate any dirt and grime off of them.

3) Allow to soak about 15 minutes. To rinse, I drained out the tub water, then turned on the shower and hopped in to direct the shower head all over the Pack-n-Play to rinse well.

4) To dry, you can either lug it outside, pop it open (upside down) and allow to …
