Tell Me About it Thursday


Got this idea from one of my fellow BlogFrog Community Leaders click here to see her blog.

Her question for today was tell me something about your childhood.

I don't have a picture but if you look at the pictures of my middle daughter we look and act about the same so there is the visual.

Anyway.... When I started kindergarten about a hundred years ago I rode the bus. Back then we would go half the year to am then mid year we would switch and do pm. So I think I started with am kindergarten and so I rode the bus with all the BIG kids you know those mean 6th graders. Back story here: I come from a really SMALL town in Utah and there were about 5 small towns that went to the same school. So the bus would pick up from one of the small towns then come to my neighborhood. The meant giant sixth graders would all sit in the back of the big yellow bus and be loud and obnoxious. Then when we got to school and all stood up to enter the isle to exit the bus they would grab the seats and push forward smashing all us innocent little kindergarten kids and making some of them cry.
As most of you know I really don't take crap from anyone so knowing that I could not defend myself against giant sixth grade boys, I marched right to the principal's office and let him know what was going on. (Seriously I remember none of the telling the principal, but I do remember the shoving) Apparently the principal and my parents got a real kick out of this because I have heard the story over and over again.

Anyway.... I do remember that I didn't get shoved anymore! Great story I know! haha

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..... You…

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).

Supplies:
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
