Spring is making its way upon us, and it’s time to get to cleaning! For some of us, our bathrooms become a place of clutter and disarray within the first day of a full cleaning. Make up, hair accessories, lotions, medications, mouth washes along with almost any other toiletry you can think of may be scattered everywhere. Maybe this isn’t a problem for you in your personal bathroom, but your teenage daughter’s bathroom may be a
completely different picture! Here are a few tips to declutter your bathroom:
- Check expiration dates. Don’t keep anything after expiration.
- One thing in, one thing out. For example, if you bought new mascara, throw away your old one. A lot of us women LOVE our make up, so if we don’t keep up with this idea of “one in, one out”, our bathrooms can easily get out of control.
- Your personal items on the counter, in your drawers and under the sink can be easily organized in containers and jars to
save space, keeping your vanity tidy.
- Extra storage. You can hang shelves and use baskets to place your items in, or you can buy a useful bathroom shelving unit to store your items. (Containers in a shelving unit would be a good idea)
- Throw away or re-gift the bath gifts that are not to your liking. This just takes extra space. And don’t worry, the friend or family member that gave you the gift doesn’t need to know….
- Clean up after yourself. Put your items away immediately after use. It only takes half a second and saves you searching for items on a cluttered counter the next morning.
- Don’t keep anything that is unnecessary. You really don’t need that hotel lotion you brought home from your last vacation.
These tips can help you get started. But after you have begun, don’t start the bad habits again! You can enjoy a nice warm bath better when you are in a tidy and well-organized bathroom.
A lot of Washingtonian’s love to go hiking and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. When you take young children with you, it changes the dynamic. There is a lot more preparation involved and it is very important to find a trail that is child friendly. You can still enjoy the hiking experience with your children as long as you have a little patience, a positive attitude and have a lot of time to spare for some extra fun. Little ones like to stop, play, look at bugs and play in water. They aren’t interested in moving along too fast, so don’t be rushed or on a tight schedule. Children live in the moment. Some of us need to follow their lead in that regard.
Be sure to pick a short trail, and possibly one with a river or place of water to play in. Bring extra clothes, sunscreen, lots of snacks and food. Be sure not to be in a hurry. Take your time. Enjoy the sights along the trail and allow the kids to explore. Following are a few beginner and family friendly trails for you to enjoy this spring.
Boulder River Waterfall is a great trail for spring. Located in Arlington, it is only a 2.5 mile round-trip with a 250 foot elevation gain. The waterfall will be an exciting destination for the kids to experience.
Nisqually Estuary Boardwalk Trail is located near Olympia. It is a 4 mile round trip on a long consecutive boardwalk. Depending if tides are in or out, you will be walking over water or mudflats. Bringing your binoculars is a wonderful idea if you are interested in bird watching and searching for other animals that live in the area.
Second Beach is located on the Olympic Coast. This trail is a 1.5 mile round trip and has an 80 foot elevation gain and a 100 foot loss. The children will enjoy playing in the tide pools and the shore of the ocean. They will love exploring for shells and other little treasures on the beach. Don’t forget beach toys.
Take a little time this spring to enjoy and explore the beauty that Washington trails have to offer. The kids will love it and you are making memories that will last a lifetime.

In a Relationship? Single? What To Do on Valentine’s Day??
It seems like couples and singles, alike, have no clue what to do on Valentine’s Day. Of course, there’s the obvious ideas to go out for dinner and a movie. You can do that single, with friends or as a couple. For some, that is just perfect, for others, we are a little bored and want something different.
We’ve sought out some different ideas that would be fun for all, regardless of relationship status. Below are some pretty interesting things to do in the Seattle area for the more adventurous ones or even things to do from the comfort of your own home for those that want to just sit back and relax.
If you are comfortable in your own skin, don’t mind a little cold weather and love exercise, try the Cupid’s Undie Run! It sounds like a blast! This is actually an opportunity for you to be a part of a fundraiser for the Children’s Tumor Foundation researching neurofibromatosis. Be sure to register before February 13!
Check out your artsy side that you didn’t know you had! How about checking out a performing arts theatre? The Seattle Theatre Group calendar displays a couple different shows on Valentine ’s Day at two separate theatres. You can make a full day and go visit an art gallery before or after the show. Expand your horizon. Experience something that you may have never tried before.
There is always booking a local day cruise. If you love the water and little romance, or you just want quality time with friends, this is a great idea. Dinner, wine, and enjoy the view of Seattle from the water.
A spa day would be nice for anyone. Single, a couple, or a few friends. Get a massage, have a quiet visit, read a good book or just relax and zone out. Book now though as this idea might be quite popular!
Don’t’ forget the kids on Valentine’s Day! If you’re not interested in getting out of the house, have a little fun with the kidlets and have a family fun night!! Recently, our family had our own lip sync battle! We all had a blast and just laughed through the entire night! Parents and kids let loose, pick their favorite fun songs and lip sync and dance the night away in the comfort of your own living room! And if you’re not tired after that, there are some hilarious family games to play to keep the fun going!
Ice skating is also something for everyone, even the kids. If it’s not something you do often, just laugh off the awkwardness, giggle at how silly you all look, and be prepared to ice your booty when you get home!
Then there is always just junk food and movies at home. Who doesn’t like that?
Make Valentine’s Day special with your significant other, your kids, your best friends, or even enjoy the quiet time alone. It can be a day to enjoy no matter what your Facebook relationship status is.
Have you registered to join the group yet? Molen Orthodontics wants to take you off to the movies! They have invited Tehaleh to be a part of an exclusive showing of Guardians of the Galaxy. If you have not yet registered, you can check with Tina for remaining availabilities!
