  1. I don't have the 800 series, but I find that the Finish tablets are perfect for the dishwasher. I also use the additional Finish rinse aid when the light goes on. That helps with the drying and spots. The tines are close together, but I use Corelle dishes so its perfect for me. I can get a ton of dishes and bowls into the machine.
  2. I was in your shoes a few years ago down to the four young kids. We decided to go to Hawaii (I'm actually not a beach person) and the vacation was amazing. We still talk about it. We ate amazing food, took amazing car rides along the coast, went hiking, ziplined and took a beautiful helicopter ride above the waterfalls. It was all awesome. I don't recommend the helicopter ride unless you have a strong stomach. My dh and I don't and we barely kept it in. The ziplining through the mountains and waterfalls was so amazing.
  3. What about wallpaper over wallpaper over UNPRIMED walls? In our first home when we steamed and tried to remove the layers, the drywall came off in chunks because it was unprimed. Lord have mercy. We were so poor after the down payment, it wasn't an option to pay someone to rip out the drywall and put up new stuff.
  4. I don't know how "authentic" it is,but we like the Irish Breakfast and British tea from Trader Joes.
  5. I tried dry shampoo years ago and didn't like it at all. I really can't understand what the fuss is all about. For me, I guess my hair is naturally pretty shiny and the dry shampoo made it look really dull. So while it didn't look oily or stringy, it still looked dirty. For your daughter, I suggest pinning her bangs back.
  6. If you have the time, try to purge before moving. It'll stink if you move all your stuff just to give a lot of it away once you settle in!
  7. I've experienced exactly what you described. I did two things to stop it, but it will require some money. I started using exercise clothing from Athleta marked UNSTINKABLE. It absolutely works. For my non-Athleta clothing, I started to soak the clothing in a vinegar wash. It did the trick, but it requires retreatment every few washes. Athleta is expensive, but there are frequent sales and the quality is awesome.
  8. I love how Sea Salt changes with the time of day and the decor. I find the color so calming and relaxing. I don't think I would paint an entire house that color though.
  9. Well according to my 8 year old, "No offense mom, you're really bad at decorating." Lol.
  10. I have four swimmers and while they don't care about their hair getting wet, I have observed some swimmers do. The ones that seem to have pretty dry hair by the end of practice wear their caps very low with no hair or gap showing. We use a swimmers shampoo after that gets all the chlorine out. If your hair is long, they do have good caps for longer thicker hair. For sports bras, I would check out Athleta.
  11. I don't know if $650 is a "great deal" from LAX, but I highly recommend the airline. Singapore Airlines is the best in the world and it shows. I've flown across the globe many times on many different airlines, but Singapore Airlines deserves the accolades. It might be worth spending a bit extra for such a special trip.
  12. I recommend Coppola's Claret. We had it with steak and the meal was delicious! FS.pdf
  13. We had this for years. It was very nice!
  14. It could have been sound frequencies. My dh is an engineer and we've had quite a few conversations about it. Fascinating.
