So this is not the best before picture of the space but it was the best one I could find.  See the big open abyss with the TV in it behind a not so happy Peyton.
This is what it looks like now!!  Yeah.  My brother hooked us up with Duane Alder who built us this beautiful built in entertainment center.  He is now working on some cabinets for the other side of my fridge they will be installed next Saturday.
The photography is kind of lousy but the thing is gigantic and to get a great shot of the whole thing I would need to stand in the back yard hehe!

After three years I think this statement is very true.  Our friend and neighbor Jeff did the vinyl lettering for us.  The house is really starting to come together.  I am not very good at home decor so just these few simple additions are really a BIG step for me.  We LOVE it!!

That looks amazing, I love it! That is such a great vinyl sign too. It reminds me of what my dad used to say every time he came home. I think I may need to copy it if you don't mind.
It looks awesome. I can't wait to call him! Enjoy

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 longe

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks! Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here.  Post edit: So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
