Don’t you love them? Don’t we need them? I’m actually on one right now! I’ve gotten some awesome opportunities for our family to review some areas around Ohio.
Ford Media Fleet is providing us with some wheels!! We have a Lincoln MKT to drive for the week. Swaeeeett!
Our first stop was the Hocking Hills area in Southern Ohio. We went to the Hocking Hills Canopy Tours! I love ziplines! It was SO fun!! We all loved it! I’ll have a post on my Explore Ohio with Sandy blog within a week or two on all these adventures.
We went to Mammoth Cave in KY today and then got to stop and visit my son in Lexington, KY. That was a very short visit to see him at his new job as a buyer at the new CarMax they just built there. The caves are not part of my review, but we wanted to take the kids there to see them.
mammoth cavesWe stopped by home and will be heading for a day at our farm. We are going to be doing some fishing!
Then we are off to a three day fun package called Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway. It includes a day at the Columbus zoo, a day at Zoombezi Bay and COSI.
This will be an awesome vacation. I’ll be sharing videos and pictures later on my Explore Ohio with Sandy blog.

Susan from Homeroad refinished this Ikea cart
Look at what she did to this cart! Just refinishing my table and painting my Ikea table were big deals to me. This is what her Ikea cart that she has had several years looked like.

You can see all her tricks and techniques on how to get this Ikea cart looking so fab on her post called Ikea Cart Re-Make.
has some great techniques and ideas on cleaning some of those things you just don’t think about cleaning, or you aren’t sure about how to clean.
She took her little old hair dryer that looks so nice and clean
ask annaUntil you looked at the filter/vent area. She used a little known secret of using dryer lint from her dryer to stick to the lint in the grates of her blow dryer to pull it out!
Look at the difference!!! It looks so clean.
ask anna She has some other great ideas that you can get the links on my going to my Organizing Mission Monday link party Week 25 to see her posts, or you can just check out her blog!
