Movies and Nicknames

Joining up with Keely again today from Mann Land 5 for Getting to know You.


1. If you could star in any movie genre what would it be?  Romantic Comedy for sure.  Those are my all time favorites.


2.  Do you recycle?  I do recycle.  I am not as good at it as I should be but I know that my recycle trash is always full so that's good right??


3. Have you ever been to a strip club?  No and I don't plan on it either.  I just don't find that exciting....


4. Do you have a nickname?  Well in college everyone called (okay not everyone) me Blood.  That was my maiden name.  Now my hubby and I call each other "Jo" sometimes.  Some people call me "Bran" (obviously a shortened version of my name)  My favorite nickname is "Mom"


5.  What is a name you can't stand to be called?  I don't think it is a name but I don't like to be called a "tomboy".  It is upsetting and I am not sure why.....


6.  What are your summer staples?  Sunscreen and lots of water.  So I guess a durable swimsuit and cute board shorts as well!


7.  What is the last thing you bought for yourself?  I got some undershirts at "Shade"  about 6 weeks ago and I am due for a summer shopping trip.


8.  Are you happy with your boob size?  I can't believe I just put that on my blog.  For now I am happy.  I would like to enhance at some point I think but not until I can justify the cost and right now I just can't!!


Have a great Sunday everyone.

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…

Fun Christmas Crafts for Kids

I am kind of a crafty person.  I am not good at coming up with my own crafts but I am really great at copying others work and making it my own with my own little touches.  So when my friend recommended I try making toilet paper snowmen I jumped all over that idea.  My kids are on year round school and we are off track right now and I am desperate to entertain them.  I took my question to Pinterest and found this great idea.  I then ventured to Hobby Lobby and our mission was underway.

We also went to Target and got the cheapest TP available because I didn't want to use my expensive super soft kind for a craft (I know call me crazy but I'm weird about my TP).

Supplies:
2 Rolls of TP per snowman
jewels or buttons for eyes and mouth
black pom poms for the front "buttons"
orange pom pom for the nose
ric rac ribbon for the hat
ribbon for the scarf
ribbon to tie around end of hat
snowflake or pom pom for hat
felt sheet for hat (we used black)
white broadcloth to wrap around TP rolls
