A Random Post


I don't love the Oscar's.  I usually get all up in arms about something that Sean Penn says and then I get mad and it ruins the whole thing for me.  But last night I was smart.  I purposely watched something else so I could fast-forward anyone I didn't want to see or hear.  This woman I could have listened to all night long.  I thought she was so genuine.  She was so excited it was making her sick (she was short of breath).  Those are the kinds of people who deserve this prestigious award and I am so glad she won.  

I also think that Sandra Bullock is amazing.  I have always loved her in all her movies she is so cute and real.  I was so happy she won for the role she played in "The Blind Side"  I loved that movie.  I cried like a baby.  There is nothing greater than a mother's love.... right?



Then I ruined my lovely Oscar night by watching the local news.  Seriously why would I do that you ask? Not sure but I realized that I need to get in gear and make sure that when state Representatives get on the news and make a blanket statement about the "general public"  they better be more well informed.  We (and by we I mean me) are not going to be understanding when you take things away from our children.  We are not going to stand by and watch you take away OUR public education and our American dream.  So don't assume EVER that we will in any way understand that.  I will not stand for it or understand it.
I got the pictures of those lovely ladies from abcnews.com/entertainment.  Thanks!!

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…

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks!

Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here. 

Post edit:
So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
