Never Boring Here in the Spring

Well this past month has truly flown by.  We have had terrible cold spring weather.  I have pictures to prove it.  I ran the Salt Lake Half Marathon on April 16th if you are my friend on facebook you already know all the details but just to summarize I finished in under two hours which was my goal.  I am now doing the Insanity workouts (which means I am actually INSANE) working on my speed and endurance for my next race.  I will let you know how that turns out.  I would type more about that but my arms are too sore.....
On to the pictures!
This is not from January it is from April not even joking.  We also had a very similar storm to this last weekend!  Gotta love spring in Utah!



Then we had a few decent days I figured I should break out the camera for some good weather shots!

We spent Easter in Price with cousins and Grandma and Grandpa.....it snowed then too..... Are you sensing a theme here?  It snows here in the spring.  I know it could be worse I am not complaining okay I am complaining a little but really I am just sayin'!
My Easter pictures turn out the same every year.  Half crazed!  I think it is the silly kids I am working with.....
Seriously what are they looking at?  Love these crazy kids!

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…
