There is one name my husband always trusts for every tough job around the house, and that is Mean Green.  Although everyone knows Mean Green when you say it; not everyone knows just how many products they have for every job around your house!  There are even a few new products that we weren’t aware of.  You are going to love them all!  We had the opportunity to try out quite a few of them and we are thrilled to report that they all live up to the name Mean Green has established over the years.

MEAN GREEN: BRAND PROMISE

“Inside and outside, nothing works better on your toughest tasks.

Mean Green is simply the strongest, most honest degreaser & cleaner you can buy for the money.

Mean Green is the #1 Heavy Duty Cleaner in America. That’s because people know and trust that Mean Green will get their toughest messes clean the first time. In fact, independent tests prove that Mean Green out cleans other brands on nearly every stain. It works better because it contains more cleaning ingredients than other brands.”

I used Mean Green Mildew Destroyer when I cleaned our bathrooms and it did an amazing job of getting rid of the mildew and preventing new mildew from forming.  It also got rid of the soap scum and gunk that accumulates on our shower door.  My husband was a little too happy to try out the Auto and Garage cleaner on our garage and all of the dirty corners in there.  He was amazed at what a great job it did of removing stains from the concrete and shelves!

THIS STUFF REALLY WORKS. WE CAN PROVE IT.

“Trusted by professionals and grown in popularity over the last 20 years by word-of-mouth recommendations alone, we thought it was about time we put our money where our mouth is and show how it has been proven over and over that Mean Green WORKS BETTER ON TOUGH GREASE & GRIME.”

With a family of 5 and a house to keep up; Mean Green Super Strength has always been the multi-purpose cleaner of choice for us.  Not only is it priced to keep our budget happy, but it also does the job like no other!  We have also been using Mean Green Orange Champ for stubborn stains in our backyard for years.  Orange Champ can clean up our outdoor cooking area in a snap, like no other!

PERFORMANCE STUDIES SHOW: MEAN GREEN OUT CLEANS OTHER PRODUCTS!

“Mean Green Super Strength was put to the test versus other brands. It consistently beats the other national brands on tough grease, grime, soils and motor oil and does it for a lower price.”

New Teaser Trailer Just Released For Disney·Pixar's COCO #Coco
Have you heard of Disney/Pixar’s new film, Coco?! Well, if you haven’t, allow me to introduce you to Coco! This is going to be such a fun film coming out in the fall. We’ll get to go to the theaters just around the holidays and have a blast sharing Coco with our families. It looks like Coco faces some pretty tough decisions, but takes us through in a way that only Disney can do. The new teaser trailer is super adorable and definitely leaves us wanting more. I cannot wait to watch the adventure unfold <3

About Coco:

Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history. Directed by Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”), co-directed by Adrian Molina (story artist “Monsters University”) and produced by Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”), Disney•Pixar’s “Coco” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017.

Easy Peasy Cherry 7UP Cupcakes #7Waysto7UP

Easy Peasy Cherry 7UP Cupcakes #7Waysto7UP

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of 7UP®. The opinions and text are all mine.

Easy Peasy Cherry 7UP Cupcakes #7Waysto7UP

I have the most amazing cupcake recipe to share with y’all today!  When I was asked to create a recipe using 7UP, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  I have been making this amazing 7UP cake for YEARS and have been wanting to make it into cupcakes for a while now, but never quite had the motivation to do it.  Soooooo, here it is!  These are the lightest, fluffiest, and most delicious cupcakes you will ever make.  You’ll never go back to making cupcakes the “old way”.  I tweaked my cake recipe a bit because cupcakes need to be a little lighter and not quite as dense as the 7UP pound cake I usually make.  Just you wait, you’re going to love them <3

Easy Peasy Cherry 7UP Cupcakes #7Waysto7UP

I made a cherry buttercream frosting to go with the 7UP cupcakes as a tribute to the super delicious Cherry 7Up that is now on the shelves of  Stop & Shop stores everywhere!  7UP is also available at Giant Landover and Giant Carlisle.  There are so many different ways we use 7UP in our weekly meal planning and you can too.  Just last weekend, my husband cooked out on the grill and we marinated pork steaks in 7UP, garlic, red pepper flakes, garlic, and soy sauce.  They were delicious!  The carbonation combined with the sugar and soy sauce makes the pork so tender that it just falls off the bone when my husband takes them off the grill.  As I mentioned before, I have a favorite 7UP pound cake that is made very similarly to these cupcakes.  The only thing I change up is that I don’t add milk, and instead of 3 eggs, I use 4.

Easy Peasy Cherry 7UP Cupcakes #7Waysto7UP

My kids have a very favorite 7UP punch that I, traditionally, make for their birthdays.  All you do is pour a 2 liter of 7UP in a punch bowl and add a 1/2 gallon of rainbow sherbet! Voila!  You will have a crowd of very happy kids.  I also like to scoop the sherbet into the bowl to make sure everyone gets a little bit in their cup.  We have made 7UP popsicles as well.  The uses for 7UP are endless!  Make sure to check out Savory Magazine in the “New Flavors” edition until 3/30 to save $1.00 when you buy two 7UP 2-Liter bottles.

Google Chromecast Audio was so easy peasy to set up!  I have used other audio/video and casting devices.  None of them were difficult to set up, but none have been as easy as the Google Chromecast audio was.  My 10 year old daughter was able to do it for me with very little direction.  I talked her through plugging in the device in the living room and she ran to her bedroom and hooked up the second device with no problem!  She even downloaded the app and got it all going with the Moana soundtrack playing all through our house 😀

Here Is Your First Look at Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns #MaryPoppinsReturns

Here Is Your First Look at Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns #MaryPoppinsReturns

Here Is Your First Look at Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns #MaryPoppinsReturns
I am so stinkin’ excited to share with you the first glimpse of Golden Globe® winner Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns, the all new sequel to Disney’s 1964 film Mary Poppins.  Do you go around singing “…just a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down….” even long after your children grow into young adults?  You might be a bit obsessed with Mary Poppins then 😉

Directed and produced by Rob Marshall, Mary Poppins Returns also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer and Julie Walters with Colin Firth and Meryl Streep.

The film, which introduces three new Banks children, played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson, also features Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury. The film is set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels) and is drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers’ additional seven books. In the story, Michael (Whishaw) and Jane (Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep). The film is produced by Marshall, John DeLuca and Marc Platt. The screenplay is by David Magee based on The Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers with Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman writing all new songs and Shaiman composing an original score.

Mary Poppins Returns will be released in U.S. theaters on December 25, 2018!
