Yesterday’s review introduced all of you to my recent Yonanas purchase and I had mentioned the PC Organics frozen raspberries that I used to make the banana raspberry yonanas. As promised, I made sure to do my review of the PC Organics frozen raspberries today. After all, it’s winter and a variety of fresh fruit is hard to come by. Sure, there’s a ton of apples that is readily available but you can only have so many apples before you become appled out. I like to be able to offer my child a variety of fruits and vegetables but the cold winter months don’t often give me this flexibility. I also like to provide organic fruits and vegetables whenever I can so when I saw the PC Organics frozen raspberries, it seemed like a logical buy. The only question is: are PC Organics frozen raspberries worth the money?

Over the holidays, I was watching the Shopping channel and came across a really neat new kitchen machine called Yonanas. Sounds fun, right? I watched the Yonanas staff easily adding fruit to the Yonanas machine and zip zip:  instant frozen fruit dessert with the texture of frozen yogurt or soft ice cream. Could this be possible??? I was intrigued by how easy it all looked. There were minimal parts to assemble and it seemed easy to clean.

As a mom I couldn’t help but think that it would be a great addition to our family’s food repertoire so I bought it. When our Yonanas  finally arrived, we couldn’t wait to try it out. So, I decided to do a product review for thingsthatwedo.com. Let’s put this Yonanas to the mommy test!

I’m sorry, I must have fallen asleep and experienced a time warp. Did we just go though almost all of January and now it’s almost February? REEEEEEEEEEEEEALLLLLLLLY? WOW. That’s mind boggling.  Perhaps, this is also a reflection of how full we must be living each day doing those basic family routines.  I mean, every day, there’s breakfast, lunch and dinner so that’s almost 4 – 5 hours gone depending on how much prep and cooking is involved. Then, there’s sleep so that automatically knocks off at least 8 hours give or take.  Factor in work and school times along with extracurricular activities and I guess that’s what happened in January.

Wait, I’m forgetting the most important part of January – each moment with family was a bonus and must be cherished. We had a ton of giggles and hugs. There were goofy faces (not just by the kid but by the adults too which really are just big kids at heart) and goofy jokes. She’s been really interested in dinosaurs lately (remember, the Dinosaur expedition Advent calendar we had?) and has been imitating a ton of dinosaur faces (I forget which one but it’s the one that stands upright with 3 fingers). Of course, there were tears and cries of  “that’s not fair! I want another book!” and variances of that. I would never expect any family to be happy go lucky 24/7. It’s just not feasible and would be too much pressure to put on any family.

Here’s a quick recap of this month’s jokes that were heard in our home:

Kid, “Knock knock”
Parents, “Who’s there?”
Kid, “Tank”
Parents, “Tank who?”
Kid, “TANK YOU!”
Parents, “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAA”

Dad, “Hey, who’s the squirrel’s best friend?”
Kid, “Who dad?”
Dad, “Your mom…. because she’s nuts!”
Kid and mom, “HAHAHAHAHHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA” with peals of laughter from mom and dad (I really did think that was super funny)

So, there you have it. A month gone by with each day used as best as they can be. Of course, there were daily posts on thingsthatwedo.com.  I would never forget that! :)

Updated: February 4, 2013

My daughter and I started ThingsThatWeDo.com as a way to share our thoughts and opinions on the basic things we do in our family. We do product reviews, post recipes (whenever I have the guts to share), and talk about events or ideas that we get. This is an update post with special thanks to Erin for sending me an email regarding the Live Clean Sensitive Skin fragrance free lotion.

I had originally posted this product review back in January 28, 2012 which would make it just over a year ago. Well, I have to tell you all, as I told Erin, that I must have been sleeping or nearly asleep when I first did this product review. Somewhere along the way, I completely neglected to include the list of ingredients for the Live Clean Sensitive Skin fragrance free lotion. Erin was kind enough to send me an email inquiring about the ingredient list and so all of us benefit because I’m now updating the post.

For those of you interested in knowing, here are the ingredients used in the Live Clean Sensitive Skin fragrance free lotion: aqua (purified water) with certified organic botanicals: camellia sinensis extract, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, glycerin, glyceryl stearate, cocoglycerides, dicaprylyl ether, vegetable oil, cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, hydrogenated vegetable oil, euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, sodium stearayl glutamate, xanthan gum, retinyl palmitate (vitamin A palmitate), tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E acetate), phenxyethanol, sodium benzoate.  I’ve also included a photo image of the ingredient list. It’s not great because of the shape of the bottle but hopefully, you can see most of the words. Sorry, photography is just not my forte!

My thoughts on the list of ingredients? I don’t know what most of all this stuff means but I’m glad that the Live Clean company made the product 98% plant ingredients and ecofriendly. It’s phthalate free, paraben free, and is made for sensitive skin. The Live Clean Sensitive Skin fragrance free lotion is also petroleum free, mineral oil free, and is purely vegan. Probably the only question mark in my head is the use of sodium benzoate which some might find contentious.

So, now you all know the full scoop and again, special thanks to Erin for the email and for sending a shout out our way. If you’d like to drop me a line, feel free to do so by making a comment below (sorry, you’ll have to register to the site first, it’s a pain I know, but it removes all the fakers out there) or you can simply send me an email using our website name: thingsthatwedo.com and then add the @gmail.com to it.

Take care and come back often to see our daily posts!

Jenna, ThingsThatWeDo.com

For those avid followers of this site, you know that thingsthatwedo.com reviews a bunch of different family focused items. Sometimes, I review cleaning products. Other times, it might be a food item or a children’s toy. It’s been a good 10 months now , give or take, since the site first launched and you must be wondering, which products are you still using? Has your opinion changed about them? Well, at least, that’s what I was thinking :) .  I was reflecting back on the growth of this site and thought I should do a recap on some of the past products I’ve reviewed in the past and give you all a short update on each. I’ll continue to give you all updates so you know where I stand on past reviewed products!

It’s time to clean. Wait, it’s always time to clean when you’re a parent. It’s just a matter of how important it is at that moment. A spill on the floor can’t wait and needs to be cleaned right now. Dust bunnies sometimes have to wait a day or two because laundry, dirty dishes, or the bathroom came first. Depending on what mood I’m in, sometimes, I like to use a more natural option for cleaning around the home. That’s when the handy dandy spray bottle of vinegar and water (equal parts) comes into play. Now, I can’t just spray it all and not have something to wipe it up with. You see, that’s where the Scott Paper Towels become involved. Now, I made the Scott Paper Towels a product for reviewing on thingthatwedo.com because honestly, up until a recent sale, I’d never used them before!

Watching a child play is the most fascinating thing. They can take something as simple as a balloon and turn it into hours and hours of fun. Over the holidays, I did a lot of cleaning and found a pack of balloons that had yet to be used. I blew one up and my kid yelped, “I LOVE balloons” and started to whack it all around the home. She came up with new games to play, new rules on how to use the balloon, and through all of it, she demonstrated the power of learning through play. Thus, I thought I’d dedicate this thingsthatwedo.com post to this one beautiful balloon and one very creative child.

Visit the MAC Studio fix page after reading this review by thingsthatwedo.com

Anyone who is a parent rarely looks awake because they are awake. Me, I pretend to look awake by wearing the MAC Studio Fix as my main makeup base.  Most days, I look like something shoveled off the ground. Wearing the MAC Studio Fix is one thing I use to face the world without scaring the rest of you into hiding and seems like the ideal choice to do a review for thingsthatwedo.com.
