Pour Some Sugar on ME!

So happy after the big WIN!!!
Me with Louie Sakoda.  Pretty sure this photo may be worth something someday!  haha

Jeff and I with a replica of the trophy which will now be displayed at the U!!! (not the replica the real thing) Yeah!
New Orleans was a lot of fun.  I got there on New Year's Eve.  Jeff and I went to an early dinner because I had been on a plane and was starving.  We ate at a place called Zea's and I had some Thai BBQ ribs, cabbage and black-eyed peas (for good luck in the new year) and Thai snap peas.  It was very good. Jeff had fried catfish and cheesy corn grits (heavenly!!)
We went to fan-fest.  The two pictures from above.  Then we went on a paddle boat dinner cruise on the Mississippi.  It was really cool.  The pictures didn't turn out great it was too dark.
We went back to the hotel and tried to get some sleep but it was business as usual for Jeff with the phone ringing off the hook so we finally just got up and watched the fireworks over the Mississippi and then tried again to sleep.
New Year's day I went to the wives activity which was pretty fun.  We decorated parasol's and then were in a Mardi Gras style parade.  We threw beads and followed a band through the streets to the restaurant for lunch.
The following day I did a short hour tour with my father-in-law and then off to the game.
The rest is HISTORY!!
Go UTES! and Happy New Year.

Every time the Utes are playing I just try to find Jeff on the sidelines. And each time I see him I announce it and get super excited. It's like playing where's waldo! Glad you had so much fun though. I'll see you tomorrow morning.
I am glad you had so much fun, you totally deserve it!

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!
