Not Exactly What I Expected

My husband and I stayed up late last night watching the series finale of "Lost".  It was a good ending to a six year series.  I was a little disappointed but what was even more disappointing was hearing the news of snowy weather this morning.  The weather person said snow in the mountains and possibly on the valley floor which almost always means WE will get snow.  
This is what I saw when I came downstairs to fix breakfast
If I was more organized they would be planted and getting snowed on, but now if they die at least I can take them back for a refund.  
I sent my children to school the last week of May in their heavy winter coats.  Good thing I am not organized or they would have been packed away somewhere and made my morning difficult.
My daughter said she didn't want to go to school today.  Really can you blame her?  I made her go anyway.  Does that make me a bad mom?
I am going to sit on the couch and snuggle my baby on her last day of being 2 and wait for the storm to pass. Then I am going to frantically get ready for a three year old birthday! 
I announced the winner of my give-away over here.  Did you win?

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.....
