I am a Finish Power & Free Mom Ambassador

I cannot believe, at all, that school starts in mere weeks. For some of you it may have already started and it makes me sad to be honest. I love the carefree activity of summer, being able to go as we please, visit family, go on trips, just do whatever, whenever.

That is why I am going to give you a great recap of what we did in the Haas house this summer!

We played!

Oh boy did we play. We went to water parks and splash pads, had water slides set up in the back yard and a new neighborhood pool! We hit 6 Flags and bounce house places and pretty much every local staycation event we could go!

Ready to have some summer fun? Create an outdoor play area that cleans up easy..REALLY!




We cooked!

We made cookies, cakes, S’mores and Cheesecake. We cut up fruit, cooked casseroles, tacos like 5 times a week, and lots of new recipes. We gave our dishwasher a work out!

Firecracker Surprise inside cupcakes with poprock "firecrackers"

Make a cake with a little "love inside" for birthdays or gender reveal parties! Easy photo instructions will make you say WOW! I can do that!


No Bake Cheesecake S'mores, 5 minute prep time for a terrific treat!


No Flame Anytime you want S'mores Bar, perfect for now or later, any age kid proof!

We crafted!

We created, created, created! Between graduation caps and painting, scavenger hunts and pipe cleaners, my office got a work out in glue, glitter, and more construction paper than I could handle.

Create a crayon table tray with papercrafting, from the mind of a 9 year old

Create a graduation cap favor for gifts, fun, or pretend play, easy (and no, does not have to be black!)

Create your own paint brush (or puff brush) and get to making some great art with kids of any age

How to Make a DIY Ribbon Tutu  with left over crafts, easy and fun, girly and glam

Create an at home laser spy experience in your home - toddler style!

Above all, we had fun bonding and enjoying each other all summer. The BIGGEST thing we did this summer was BUY A NEW HOUSE! We bought a brand new house about 45 minutes closer to our extended families, the beach, and our friends.




It was funny when I moved into the new house, the first thing I had changed was the dishwasher. I took the one from my old house and put it in my new house.

Hey if you love an appliance, you love it! Which is why I am a proud ambassador for Finish®! I love it, I use it, and it also came with me to the new house.


Finish® Power & Free™  Moms

The past few months I have had the pleasure of talking to you about Finish® Power & Free™ ! You probably remember all my messy moments with the #FinishMoms Test here (kinda looked like our fun summer!) and our delicious Apple Banana Bread Recipe and all that baked on goodness. I am happy to report that we are still using all the wonderful and less harsh products with Finish. They are perfect for all the things this little boy puts in his mouth!


To remind you:

  • Finish® Power & Free™ detergents feature Hydrogen Peroxide Action to power away the toughest food messes

    You guys had loads of fun this summer. Great memories for C and P to carry with them for a lifetime….well, maybe not P so much yet….but you know what I mean. A family making memories and having fun together lasts a lifetime. And congrats on the new home. It is beautiful!

    What a wonderful summer! I almost want to be a child in your house! I love doing great things with my kids and my siblings children during the summer – and I just did a video review on our finish dishwasher products. I had no idea they had this many products.
