GE Reveal Lighting

ge reveal

As of January 1, new energy efficiency standards have been placed. What does this mean? The old fashion bulbs you may be used to are no longer available. Being the wife of an electrician, I am all for this! If the type of bulb you use can change your homes energy usage it is worth it. We switched a long time ago to CFL bulbs. As they became more popular new versions have been released and in the end my entire house has been replaced with CFL bulbs. I HATE the yellow tint that standard bulbs produced with lighting. It made me feel miserable. When I discovered Daylight CFL bulbs, my life changed. My house is so bright and comforting and has true color definition. But these bulbs can get rather pricey! I was recently contacted by GE to review their new line of bulbs available at Target. the GE … read more

Happy New year! Thrifty Mom’s Goals Part 1- MYSELF


I know it is already 9 days into the year and many people have already stated their resolutions. I would have typically done this already too. But this year, I put it off a bit. I took a break from blogging to clear my mind and decide what I truly want from life. I had to evaluate where I am, where I want to be and what I can do to set realistic goals. Screw New Years resolutions. Every year I make them, I say I will write about them, I follow them for 2 or 3 weeks and then I flop. So this year, I will not make any resolutions that involve measurable results. I always fail with those. But, I did want to share my goals for the year. After evaluating them, I decided the list is LONG so, I am breaking it into three posts and I … read more

I am joining in with my fellow bloggers of Blog Ease to do a fun tour of our Christmas Trees! The best part is there is no need to leave your house! Simply click through the list and take a peek at what all of our beautiful trees look like! So, I am an avid Dallas Cowboys Fan.. My husband however is a San Francisco 49ers fan. I love him enough to allow him to claim the tree (shhhh.. just don’t tell him I only allow it because I am not a ‘blue’ Christmas kind of girl.. so the red and gold looks more festive!) So there you have it. Every year, I hold back mt pride and decorate a 6.5 foot tree with red, gold, and 49er’s gear. Isn’t it pretty!
