Valentines Success.... Wordless Wednesday

This year I wanted to make Valentines memorable.  I am not sure why.  It is not in my nature to go ALL out for holidays.  I am not THAT mom.  I am not a super decorator or celebrator I just don't love it.  This year I got a bug though and I decided Valentines Day was going to be LEGENDARY!!  I put it to my Facebook Friends and they did not disappoint with the suggestions.  I also went to Pinterest for ideas and also no disappointment although Pinterest does tend to make me feel inadequate on a good day. Those Pinterest guru's are super over-achieving crazies... ahem.  So I made my cool craft from Monday's post.  Then I decided to create some pretty great Valentine's boxes.

And my cute friend Jane suggested a Valentines Cafe at home with my children as servers.  I LOVED this idea.  I went to the store and bought aprons and craft paint and made custom server outfits for each child to wear.  I made a family favorite for dinner. You can see that recipe here in my blogfrog community and in a previous post here.  

Overall Valentines was so fun and I know my kids will certainly remember this one!
Don't mind my messy house I can only be expected to do so much ;)

My food photography has much to be desired but it still tasted delicious!
And of course we had cute little table decorations thanks to my cricut and Close To My Heart.

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 longe
