Scotch-Brite Stay clean sponge review

I've been seeing commercials for the Scotch-Brite Stay Clean sponge. They had me at "Even eggs and cheese wont stick" so I went out and bought a pack. The color is cute. Being a girl that matters lol for some weird reason. The top feels different from a regular sponge too. So I tested it out. I made some scrambled eggs for the kids and let the pan sit for like 2 hrs. They are right, eggs don't stick the the scrubby part of the sponge like others. But I find that the material on top isn't as good and scrubbing. I got the pan clean but I defiantly had to scrub harder and longer than usual. All in all it does what they say it does. I like it. I think I'll use these sponges for my bathrooms instead of in the kitchen. I like that the scrubby part isn't so hard on surfaces, so it'll be perfect for the job. I did take a before and after picture that I'll post below!

Happy Cleaning!!

Holy crap we bought a house!

It's been forever since I've blogged. I'll be honest, I'm not very good at it. Those that have or do actually read this probably know that lol. But my husband and I have bought a house. Our first ever, belongs to us, home! No more military housing for us. Don't get me wrong we are thankful for housing but after 12 yrs of my husband being active duty, it was time to not share walls with our neighbors ( which they are probably happy for b/c I yell a lot, what can I say I'm Italian :) ) and for our kids to have their own back yard to run and play in.

It's pretty weird have a house. You can't call maintenance anymore when something isn't working right or breaks. Thankfully our home is a new construction and is under warranty so the few things that have needed fixed were covered. But it's also very cool to know that when I see something on Pinterest I can now do to my house. If I want to paint all the walls neon green I can. It's very exciting yet weird all at the same time.

Brace yourselves for posts about home stuff. This is going to be an exciting adventure for sure. Even thought I'm now 30 mins from base, I'm still a Navywife trying to blend in to her new neighborhood!
