Happy Memorial Day!! Thanks to all the men and women who give so much for this country. Their acts of service are unmatched.
Yesterday was actually pretty cold in Indianapolis which was such a bummer. I always think of memorial day as sunshine, going out on boats, going to the pool, the Indy 500, bike riding, and grilling out.
Well yesterday was so stinkin cold none of those activities were going to happen. Except for the grilling out part. I insisted that Kyle and I make a summer time meal on the grill to celebrate Memorial Day weekend.
A few weeks ago I bought some ground bison meat from our local farmers market so we figured yesterday would be a perfect day to make burgers! Kyle had a bun with his burger but I opted to go bunless.
Along with our bison we grilled corn in the husk- but apparently we didn’t soak it in water long enough (10 min. is too short) because the husks got burnt to a crisp and almost caught on fire… whoops!! Once we took the charred husks off and said a little prayer to not get cancer, the corn was perfect.
I made a big salad with cucumbers, celery, and walnuts to go on the side. Delish!
Hope you have a fantastic Memorial Day!!
On another note, my good friend from college Michael works for this awesome company called Freshwave.
Freshwave is an odor eliminating product made with all non-toxic, environmentally safe ingredients like “Lime, Pine Needles, Aniseed Clove, Cedarwood and Water”. Most of the products I’ve used have a pine scent and the ingredient list is all natural oils and names you recognize.
While I do love the Caribbean Breeze and Fresh Linen scents of products like Febreeze, I always wonder what chemicals I’m inhaling and covering my house in. Freshwave is completely safe for pets, kids, and super health conscious weirdos like me.
Michael sent me a box of products to try out around my house:
I was pretty pumped to try some of the new things! I’ve been using the spray for years but I’ve never used the Crystal Gel or the Pearl packs. Here is where I put them all:
With the Crystal Gell collection, you can take off the label easily and then you have a nice decorative looking item to put on your shelf- I love that you don’t have to stare at the logo all day if you don’t want to.
Honestly, I use this stuff all over my house. I find that the scent doesn’t last very long but it does REMOVE odors really well. Occasionally I will get a whiff of fresh pine and cedar, but generally I smell nothing- which I appreciate 🙂
I checked out the website and here are all the cool products!

My friend Michael is more than willing to send out a box or two of these Freshwave packs. My question is,
DO YOU WANT SOME?
I’ve never done a give-away, so I don’t know if this is appropriate stuff to give away…. But I would love for you guys to get some Freshwave!!
So let me know, comment below if you’d like to try this stuff. Once I have an idea of who’s interested, I can do a give away.
Your comment here will count as an entry in any future Freshwave give-aways.
