Sushi and Birthday Service

Pretty sure if you talk about all the service you did it kind of negates the activity.  But since I helped paint my grandparents house on my birthday I can talk about it just a little bit more.  It was actually a pretty fun day.  My brother, uncle, mom and dad did the hard part and mostly I just chased my kids around and made sure they didn't drown in the pool next door.  Thanks Jamie for watching them for me!  
I have been dreading this birthday all year not because of what I was going to do of course but because of how old I am now.  But really I feel no different.  Thank goodness!  I know you are all laughing and that is okay. 

The night before my birthday we spent as a family eating yummy Pampered Chef recipes and a fresh strawberry cake.

We were going to go out on my birthday but we were all exhausted from a day in the sun Jeff at Ute shoot and us in Lehi so we came home and had sushi from Tepanyaki (my favorite!!)  We laughed about the first time I had raw fish 9 years ago at a fancy restaurant in San Diego on a seared Tuna salad.  I didn't eat it.  But I do now.
Then the kids went to bed and we watched a movie we have been trying to watch forever.  
I think it was one of my best birthday's ever!  Maybe I will stay 35!

Happy Birthday Brandie! Good to know that 35 is not so bad-I get to enjoy 34 for a couple more weeks:) I'm with you 15 years ago and you would not have gotten me to eat sushi now it's one of my favorite things crazy how we change. Glad you had a good day.

Happy Birthday! (late.) It sounds like an exhausting day. By the way, you look great for 35, I thought you were talking 30 (and I was going to have a hard time believing that.)

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
