Cheap shoes...

I did not mean to post these shots gigantic but whatever.  We went to Walmart today and I couldn't resist the $5.00  shoes.  With spring and summer and all the dirt and mud I figured why not.  Then I don't have to get freaked out when the kids come in covered in mud.  Just spray off the shoes with the hose and move on.  And of course mom needs a pair for yard work as well, plus for $5.00 they are pretty comfy.
Just a tip:  If you happen to notice that you got overcharged for something at Walmart don't ask for a refund.  They nearly lost their minds today when I told them they overcharged me $.99.  Okay I admit it is trivial.  But I had just finished telling the checker she already rang up the item and then she rang it up two more times.  So then when the chick came over with the keys she unpleasantly said " 96 cents, are you kidding me?"  Apparently the walmart employees are making a lot more money than I am because to me a dollar still means something.  Anyway from now on I will try not to correct my checker, unless of course it is more like $99.00.  SERIOUSLY!

Those are some cute feet! I am so annoyed that the checkers treated you like that. I have absolutely no patience for bad customer service. It drives me UP THE WALL. I have heard if an item rings up different from what it is marked at wal mart, you get the item free. It is a their way of making sure they are accurate. I have heard that from several people. I think we all get overcharged a lot more than we know and need to watch carefully as they ring us up. (Which if pretty much impossible if you are with kids)

Cute shoes. I get sick of treatment like that. I would have pointed something like that out as well. $1.00 makes a big difference to me. How annoying! That just makes me so mad. I hate hearing things like that. They changed the price on their frozen juice once but it was still showing .69 cents on the freezer shelf instead of 70 whatever cents it is now. I think they were a little irritated with me when I made them change it. I had bought like a dozen cans or so.

That makes me laugh!!! I would've asked too. You can buy a lot for .96 cents! What to go! By the way, every single time I shop at Walmart, they ring at least one thing wrong... they must get commission!!

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot.  It's a gift I know. I digress.

Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you.

All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great.
You will need:
3 Tablespoons Baking Soda
8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide
1 drop dish soap
Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longer effective due to …

Master Bedroom Makeover Board and Batten

I highly recommend a few items although you don't HAVE to have them it just makes this project go so much faster.  I bought a pancake compressor with three nail guns included saved me on this project and a miter saw.  I bought both from Home Depot and they didn't pay me to say that it is just where I happen to shop.  I actually had this all measured out and went to Home Depot and they cut the mdf primed boards for me.  However I later purchased the miter saw and was then able to cut things right here at my house.  The nail gun I used is a 16 gauge gun that can shoot nails up to 3 inches.  I used a 2.5 inch nail to cover the thickness of the board and wall. Ok so I recommend deciding how you want your boards spaced first and measure and mark on the wall where you want them.  I tried to do every 16 inches because that is how far apart my studs were but then I realized my wall wasn't an even length and so I have some that look a little off on the ends.  Lesson learned.....

Fun Christmas Crafts for Kids

I am kind of a crafty person.  I am not good at coming up with my own crafts but I am really great at copying others work and making it my own with my own little touches.  So when my friend recommended I try making toilet paper snowmen I jumped all over that idea.  My kids are on year round school and we are off track right now and I am desperate to entertain them.  I took my question to Pinterest and found this great idea.  I then ventured to Hobby Lobby and our mission was underway.

We also went to Target and got the cheapest TP available because I didn't want to use my expensive super soft kind for a craft (I know call me crazy but I'm weird about my TP).

2 Rolls of TP per snowman
jewels or buttons for eyes and mouth
black pom poms for the front "buttons"
orange pom pom for the nose
ric rac ribbon for the hat
ribbon for the scarf
ribbon to tie around end of hat
snowflake or pom pom for hat
felt sheet for hat (we used black)
white broadcloth to wrap around TP rolls
