The Post Where I Brag a Little

So I mentioned the other day how I love to work out.  I thought I better put my pictures where my mouth is so you don't think I'm just making it up....
This was taken at the CBC Conference in May of 2010.  I didn't take off my jacket because I was embarrassed of my chub.  I was happy clearly but not the best version of me.
Not the best shot but the only other pictures I have are in my sports bra and workout pants and I am not quite ready to put that all out there just yet.  
I have been working out with a great group of women for the past year. We encourage each other we laugh together and we get strong together.  We share recipes, workout tips, and our lives.  We call ourselves Super Mom's.  We have our own support group ahem I mean Facebook group.
Then in October a cute facebook friend Jill invited me to a LeanMoms event.  At the time I wasn't sure what that was exactly but it sounded fun it involved healthy snacks and a Saturday workout. It was the best decision I have made in a long time. Lean Moms and Super Moms united and I started to see some real results. Clean eating and weight lifting are the answer for me.  Apparently your muscles are made in the kitchen AND the gym not just one or the other.

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…
