Five Question Friday

My Little Life


Joining up with Mama M. over at My LIttle LIfe for Five Question Friday today. So here goes.....


1. Have you ever had a celeb sighting?
Not that I know of. I don't think I would recognize one if I saw them. And wait, in my own little world I am a celebrity {insert evil laugh here}


2. What temperature do you keep your house?
Apparently much too warm in winter and much too cool in the summer based on my utility bills. My goal temperatures are 68-72 in the winter and 78-80 in the summer but I am not very good at sticking with that.


3. Do you notice dust at other peoples homes?
Nope not even a little. I hate to dust and I don't do it so I certainly don't notice at anyone else's house and if you come over here don't tell me cause I already know it's dusty! Thanks.


4. What is the worst job you ever had?
Well there have been a few..... but the worst one I think was when I first moved to California right after I got my Bachelor's in nursing and I worked at a hospital in an ICU. My training was about 2-3 weeks (if you are a nurse you know this is not adequate to train a new nurse in the ICU) My co-workers wouldn't speak English around me and then come to find out I was the butt of many jokes that were based on a lie that another co-worker had started. It was a painful 7-8 months. I am going to have to tell the rest of the story in a different post...


5. What is your most sentimental possession?
I don't really get too attached to my stuff. I am a tosser so I try not to get to attached to anything. If I had to choose I would say my kids, my husband and my scrap-books. {although I know children and husbands are NOT possessions}

Now head on over and visit Mama M. and join up!!

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…
