Girls Night Out



I never go to Girls Night Out event.  Seriously never!  I don't know why.  Okay that's a lie I do know why I have three kids and a husband who works crazy Division I football hours.  I don't complain about it too much.  Okay I complain about it a lot and usually very loudly but that is not what this post is about.  This post is about my first official Girls NIght Out and how absolutely amazing it was.  Why have I been depriving myself from this?  
This particular Girls Night Out was sponsored by the lovely ladies of SassyScoops. They are all amazing!  They are partnered up with the lovely ladies from the Casual Blogger Conference and sponsored this event at a local Italian Cafe.  The food was fabulous and the company was amazing.  
I was lucky enough to get to go with one of my best friends Lynette.  We even posed for a picture.


There were lots of amazing prizes I even won a $25 gift card to an amazing little shop.
This is Vanessa and Emily.  They were giving away all the prizes and I couldn't resist this picture.  
It was so exciting to meet other bloggers and start to network with them.  I am so excited for the Casual Blogger Conference next month.  I also met Elisa from Mormon Mommy Blogs and Crazyland oh and she is also speaking at CBC and one of the founders.  She was so nice and she recognized me because of blogfrog.  She is big time and she recognized me thank you blogfrog!
Anyway back to the point.  I will be participating in more Girls Nights Out.  I can't believe I have been so deprived no wonder I am so grouchy!

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…
