Blog Award #2! Hooray



One of my new blog friends Brandi from the BlogFrog gave me this cool award.
The rules are to pass this on to 7 bloggers who I feel are honest in their blogging and list 10 honest things about myself. So here goes!!

1. I love college football (especially the U of U this will be witnessed soon as the season is starting next week)
2. I wish I could afford a housekeeper.
3. I am a republican and more often than not my husband and I disagree on political issues. (pretty sure I have already blogged about this.)
4. Secretly I am really selfish but everyone who knows me says this isn't true. I hide it really well obviously!
5. I love being a nurse but hate leaving my kids to go to work.
6. I am seriously considering plastic surgery at some point in my life!
7. I want to go back to school but it probably isn't going to happen.
8. I love helping out in my kids classrooms at school.
9. I am addicted to Buckle Jeans (thanks Heather!) Oh I am also shallow
10. I am always amazed at how much my kids know and can't for the life of me figure out where on earth they learn all this stuff.


Seven Bloggers I feel deserve this award are:


Love this award thing. It is fun. You find new blogs and you get to leave lots of comments and get some back too. Have fun!!

Thanks for the award, Brandie! I'm passing it on -- looks like fun!

Loved your list. ;-)

Ah, yes. . . after 3 kids plastic surgery is almost a must! My SIL just had a few things, ya know, put back where they go and she looks amazing. I'd do it in a second, but I'll have to wait until I can't remember how painful my c-section was! LOL! :)

Congrats on your award!

I LOVE college football but the U. of NC for me. Yesterday, I looked for a countdown to put on my blog but never found a nice looking one. 9 days though!

I would never hire a housekeeper because why pay somebody to do something that I could do much, much better. Now, as for a cook and meal planner...yeah I would hire one of those.

I'm a Republican too!

If I ever get plastic surgery it would be a chin implant...yeah, I know, how exciting!

Again, congrats!

Congrats on another award! I too would love a housekeeper and plastic surgery someday is (hopefully) in the future and as a mother, it is good to be selfish sometimes. I know I can be! I emailed you the picture of the girls earlier today, just in case it goes to your junk.

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…
