We're moving (not far)!! The first of November we decided it was in our best interest to get out of our current living situation. We obviously didn't have anywhere to go and we were to be out of the apartment by Dec 1. Mauri's parents opened their home to us until we could find something. About the middle of Nov we found a house we were interested in and put in an offer. Now we are just waiting to close. Of course we would have the house where the sellers have issues and it's going to take a little longer than "normal". There are a lot of lessons to be learned in the whole experience! We are crossing our fingers, toes, and eyes, hoping we close before the first of the year. And with it being the holidays a lot of the important ppl are going to be closed! lol! I'm not lying when I mention these lessons lol!!

This one was for a friend. I had to redo it several times to get it "right" and I still think it could use some work. But I really like this pattern!!

I love these!! This one seemed to be easier than the first one but I'm pretty sure I melted some of my fingerprints off in the process!!

I'm finding it hard to believe I have spent every day for the past year married to my best friend! I couldn't ask for anything more amazing! It had definately been an interesting year. In April we were married, of course! I made my first trip by plane. Then we spent an awesome week in Las Vegas and a day at the Grand Canyon. When we got back from our honeymoon I lost my job. Since Mauri works with the school system he had the summer off so we visted family in Florida and spent some time at the beach during June and July. In August I was attacked by some crackhead for my goodwill purse lol!! (Idiot!!) Then we went on a casino cruise boat kinda thing, which confirmed my easily being motion sick! So here we are 1 year later waiting to see the amazing things yet to come from our love and comittment to each other!

So...I've been hearing that vinegar could be used for fabric softener. I looked into it and found that the smell doesn't "stick" to the clothes. Last week I finally finished a bottle of store "bought" softener (I actually didn't pay anything for it. It was on sale and I had a coupon so it was FREE!!) and figured I would give the vinegar route a try. I just folded my first load of laundry using the homemade version and there was no trace of the vinegar smell at all. In fact, it doesn't smell like it in the bottle I used either. So for now it's a keeper in my book!!
This is the recipe I used:
2 Cups White Vinegar
2 Cups Baking Soda
4 Cups Water
Combine slowly and carefully over sink. The baking soda and vinegar will fizz.Pour into plastic bottle, cover, and shake.
*Hint - Reuse your "Downy" bottle.
Use 1/4 cup in the final rinse or in a "Downy Ball".
I halfed this as well because my bottle wasn't big enough! And though it says to mix it in the sink, next time I will use the tub. I still created a volcano and instead of spewing up, it shot out the side, straight over the counter and onto the floor LoL!!
UPDATE: I dont know exactly how to fix my problem, but the baking soda seems to clump up in the bottom of the laundry softener holder thing in the middle of the washing machine. I guess I'll start adding it straight to the wash now and see how that goes.
