Menu Planning 101

So I don't usually blog about food or what I cook because that time of the day is so hectic for me. Probably why we eat out so much ugh. I know not very frugal. But one of my new found blogging friends posted yesterday about meal planning and how to get started. She suggests to get started just write down 15 meals. Which was totally stressful for me ahh. She has more steps. Those of you who are awesome click here to see the rest of her challenge. As for me I am going to start slow and list my 15 meals for you!

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.
