A New Adventure and a Giveaway!

As I shared a while ago, God has given my a great opportunity with Norwex while the hubs goes to school. I am amazed at how He has continued to provide for us during this time. I am also amazed at the perseverance that my husband has displayed in all of this! He's doing such a great job at school and still taking care of us! I just hope the little that I am doing helps him out as well.

One thing I love about this new adventure with Norwex, is the new way that I have been introduced to cleaning. No more harsh chemicals! Instead, I clean with just water! That's it. Nothing more. All I need is a Norwex Enviro Cloth and water, and then I can go to town with cleaning. 

Not only that, but cleaning now takes half the time! It's amazing how quickly it goes, even with a toddler in tow! And right now, I'm all about getting things done quickly. This whole third trimester energy loss doesn't allow for things that take a long while. Oh yeah, did I mention I'm in my third trimester? Only 9 weeks to go until due date for little guy! Here's a sneak peak at my 30 week bump, it makes a good seat for Bug:

So, with another little one on the way, I was looking for a way to simplify things while reducing the harmful chemicals that come with cleaning supplies. It's amazing how God places things in your lap, and Norwex pretty much fell into mine. 

My three favorite products for the home can be found in our Household Package: the Enviro Cloth, the Dust Mitt, and Window Cloth (which you can enter to win at the bottom of this post). Together, these three make the dream cleaning team. By using these three products, you save so much money by not having to buy all those cleaning supplies and can replace most of your cleaning supplies! 

The Enviro Cloth is used wet to clean everything! And I mean everything. It is generally referred to as our "all around" cloth because it is just that. It can be used in every room and replaces all those nasty chemicals. I personally have a few of these cloths and they each have a room they belong to. Also, these cloths come in four different colors so that you can match the colors you already have in your home (red/pink, green, yellow, and blue).

The Dust Mitt is my saving grace for dusting. I hate dusting. I really, really do. It's beyond frustrating for me to dust. I don't know why, I love a dust free home, but boy does it bother me. This mitt is used for dry dusting and picks up all the dust it touches! It can also be used wet to clean those pesky blinds!

The Window Cloth is used to dry polish and shine windows, mirrors, stainless steel appliances, so on and so forth. Paired with the Enviro Cloth, these two eliminate window cleaners and the wasteful use of paper towels!

There are tons more amazing products on the website! Check out my website and if you have any questions feel free to contact me {at} beautifulfamilyaffairs{at}gmail{dot}com. And remember to enter to win your very own Norwex Window Cloth!!

Ch ch ch ch changes

Whenever I think of life changes, this scene always pops into my head. Gotta love Shrek.

Well, it looks like BIG changes are coming to the beautiful family affairs family.

First, I've got to brag on my amazing husband! After his job being terminated last September, he has been doing everything possible to provide for our family and working his tail off. Well, starting next week he'll be going to school full-time! I'm so stinking proud of him for deciding to go back to school! He'll be studying automotive collision repair, a two-year degree program, as well as getting other certifications along the way!

 This decision was not one that was taken lightly. We explored option after option at what to do after his job ended, but God continued to lead us back to school. So we started pursuing this new dream that the hubs has. The first step was to pass the COMPASS test. Now, my husband wasn't the best in school and never did any more schooling than high school, so this test caused a lot of anxiety in our household. But he knuckled down and PASSED everything! I was - and am - so proud of him for doing that! So the next step was getting accepted, which he did! Yay! Another cause for celebration! Then...came for the finances. Let me tell you, we struggled with this, but you know what? God always provides and he got a full ride! That's right, y'all! My husband's tuition has been completely paid for! God is good all the time!

So that's the first big news! Starting next week, the hubs will be a full time student and I couldn't be more proud of him!

The next big news has a lot to do with the first. Because of all the changes that were going on with our family - the hubs starting school and a new member joining our family in August (um...hello third trimester where did you come from?!) - I had to leave my position as preschool director at our church. I felt that I needed to put more effort into my family and caring for them, especially with the added stress that school brings.

With that being said, new opportunities have arisen for me. With the hubs starting school, I knew that I wanted to find something I could do from home, where I could set my own hours and be my own boss, to help out financially where we need it. I had been looking at different things, when I saw my friend posting all these new things about Norwex on Facebook. It caught my attention right away and I just had to figure out what it was all about. I fell in love with the product and mission and I am now proud to announce that I am a new independent consultant for Norwex! 

What is Norwex? Norwex is a new way to clean without chemicals! All you need is water! A great way to go "green" in your living. If you're curious about our products you can check out my website:

But yeah, that's about it...big changes are happening over here. We're trying really hard to not be overwhelmed by it all, but above all else, we're confident in where God is taking us.
