First Birthday coming up!

I can NOT believe that Ryker is almost 11 months. With just a month away from his party, I've been on the look out for ideas to make the day fun. I know he won't remember this day but I will and I love to decorate for the boys' b-days.

Our theme is "the Very Hungry Caterpillar". Such a cute little book and so many fun colors. Here is my collection of ideas-

I can't wait! I'm starting to get things done now so that it's a little more at a time rather than a cram to get everything done at the end. Hopefully it all pays off.

Pinterest projects

So I haven't kept up with posting, shocking I know! But I have been working on some of the projects I've pinned.

First off I've been tackling some cleaning ideas-
I've thrown a couple shirts to the side that were favorites but had stains on them that I couldn't get out with my normal Oxiclean collection.

I wish I had taken before and after shots because this stuff WORKED, so easy and I really didn't scrub that hard. I did try it on a shirt that had been stained by suntan lotion but it didn't work, so I'll stick to my bleach soaks for that.

I kept finding clothes that I put away from Tucker that I almost tossed instead of using for Ryker, but then I tried a combination of a few pins. I took some onesies and a couple shirts that had formula, food, or diaper stains and put them in a heavy bleach bath for about an hour. Then put this "magic stick" on them,

and soaked them all in my washer with a scoop of Oxiclean for about 25 minutes, then I washed them like normal. It worked on all the formula stains, the lighter food, but it didn't completely get rid of the diaper stains, just lightened them.

I tried this shower cleaner on our tub and wasn't to impressed. The cleaning smell wasn't there which is nice but I'm going to stick with my Scrubbing Bubbles.

I love, LOVE, this super easy method of cleaning my stove top. I've done it three times now! I tend to get preoccupied when cooking- oops! But every time my stove top looks brand new!

Those are my cleaning pins, stayed tuned for other project pins. Hopefully it won't be another month!
