ok, so not really smiling at the time this pic was being taken….but trust me, I WAS smiling plenty!!! LOL . this time, I was giving some serious consultation to my friend “Lavonne” 🙂
I have to first commend the employees and managers at Hy-Vee. They were AWESOME and gave me such a warm welcome. You would have thought I was a full time, well known employee!!! Thanks to everyone for making me feel right “at home”. I was honored to have this opportunity.
I met LOTS of new people, and had a chance to reacquaint with so many local friends as well!!! I answered alot of questions and also learned alot of new things myself. Thanks to Jenice for being the blog reader that traveled the furthest to see me!!! If I remember right, she came from Lacona and visited Oskaloosa for the very first time!!! Maybe a 2 hour drive (?) I hope Oskaloosa made a good impression on her and she will want to return again……if nothing else, she will know where to find all her laundry needs. Hy-Vee will have it all in ONE place!!!!!!!! yeah yeah yeah!!!!!
I had alot of questions regarding 2 things:
1. Allergies and skin sensitivity? I can assure you of both. I have one child with a severe skin condition and allergies as well (and asthma) I have forever washed his clothes exclusively with All Free & Clear. This is no longer necessary. All of our clothes are now washed with Simply Wonderful and it is the BEST for many reasons, including these concerns.
2. Front loading High Efficiency washers? I know through researching that it is perfectly ok to use, and you need to adjust the dispensed amount accordingly. If there are readers out there, that have some additional positive experience and would like to offer their insight and tips (or questions)…..feel free, and we can all learn more through the comments section.
I have another homemade item to share this week….it might not be new to all, but for sure it will be to some!!!! I am loving it and using it daily. !!!! I also will have more art, more challenges and I will share a few more opportunities that have been opened up for me since my weekend spent at Hy-Vee !!!!!! :)
(oh yeah, a couple more things: I had to check out the background in the picture I am sharing. How about all those earth friendly decorated grocery bags??? I loved them!!!! I assume an Elementary class did these? not sure on those details. And also, the “Got Art?” poster…..for the upcoming Art on the Square!!! all things close to my heart!!!) and being the Queen of sweatshirts, although you can not see the front of mine, it says “Simplify” ….PERFECT, and yes, to all that know me SO well, I had to “alter” it first!!! haha..
