So thankful for the can of Hot Shot® under my sink

Thank god for HotShot under my sink! #HotShot #ad

So the other morning when I was getting ready in the bathroom brushing my teeth, I hear a rustle. Then I hear it again. “Wait.. That’s not right…” I think to myself, and I looked around the room to investigate. I don’t see anything at first, but I hear it again – a gentle rustle, and it leaves me feeling uneasy because I have a sinking suspicion that there’s a bug somewhere in the room with me.

I’ve talked before about my jumpiness when it comes to bugs, and I felt extra jumpy as I played hide and seek looking for where the rustling noise was coming from. Finally I spotted it within the blinds on the window!

There it was! A big nasty wasp made its way into my bathroom. Maybe it has to do with the fact that the dreaded peach tree is on the other side of the window, or maybe it was just a coincidence.. Who knows! All I know is that I’m standing in my underwear poking at the blinds with my hairbrush and wondering how in the world I am going to handle this early morning snafu.

Then I remembered I had some Hot Shot® under the sink! I couldn’t have been more thankful at that moment to have it within arms reach. It makes me feel like I should have a can of Hot Shot® under every sink, so you never have to run out of the room to get it and risk losing sight of the bug. So I closed the bathroom door, armed myself with my Hot Shot®, took a good distance from the window and let them have it! It was a little bit messy, but luckily the bathtub was right below the window, so it made for an easy clean up.

And my unwanted visitor… DEAD. Don’t let bugs feel at home!

So creepy, it makes me want to run and hide!

Making painting a room a little easier with Textured Surface by FrogTape

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you ever take on a home painting project with energy and excitement for what you are setting out to do, only to have it end in disaster?

Yep. I’ve had that happen more often that I’d like to admit! Recently, I did some painting in JP’s bathroom to update the sterile white walls and encountered some hiccups in my project after applying the paint. I chose a pretty aqua color and everything went smoothly until I pulled off the masking tape that I used to help block the paint from bleeding on to the ceiling and wall and baseboard. Unfortunately for me, I used a cheapo no-name masking tape and paid the price.

I’m my life’s experience with anything, sometimes you get what you pay for.

To correct my mistake, I decided to use Textured Surface by FrogTape that’s specially designed for use on textured walls like mine. This particular brand is different because the FrogTape® Textured Surface is treated with the patented PaintBlock™ Technology, a super absorbent polymer that reacts with the water in latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, which helps prevent paint bleed. The Liquid PaintBlock® Edge Sealer™ helps deliver super sharp paint lines, even on textured surfaces!

It was so simple to apply – just lay it where you need to mask, and run the accompanying sealer on top of the tape to seal your tape to the wall. This will ensure that no bleeding of any sort will occur during the paining process. I really hate it when you bust your hump painting a room, and then you feel a pang of disappointment  when the unveiling time comes and you peel off the tape to discover all the bleeding that took place. So discouraging!

Then once I had the tape in place, I ran a wet sponge over it…

Then to secure it, I used the accompanying bottle of liquid so no leaks would occur!

…And the result – No leaks!

This is why I was thrilled to use Textured Surface by FrogTape because it eliminated by chances of this happening! I corrected the prior mistakes I made, and it helped me fill in the rough edges. I’m so happy I found the answer to my textured walls problem!

This past week, we have been working hard to get everything prepared for the big day that is rapidly approaching… First day of school!! As most moms across the country do, I’ll be making my little guy sit here and pose there while I capture each year’s first day shot… Like this adorable one from last year…

But like every year, before I can get excited about 1st day of school pics, I have to make sure he’s prepared against all the nasty diseases that he will encounter at school. Let’s face it – we all love our children to bits, but they can be little walking petri dishes if we are not careful. I want to make sure that I minimize all possible chances of illness for him, not only for his sake but for the sake of our entire family. There is nothing worse than being stricken with a bad case of the flu!

I decided to use Walgreens for our immunizations because they offer the “Get a Shot. Give a Shot®” program that helps underprivileged children obtain the immunizations they need to stay healthy. If I did these shots anywhere else, the only person it would benefit would be JP – so why not get the same thing done at Walgreens AND help another child too? Makes perfect sense to me! Walgreens accepts most insurance companies, no appointment is needed AND they will report any changes to your shot records to your PCP! Sounds a whole lot easier than wasting my afternoon sitting in the pediatrician’s waiting room.

So while I was there, I decided to pick up some school supplies for him as well. He won’t be needing much because his school provides everything, but I thought a pencil case would be a nice addition to his things. I found the cutest one amidst all the back to school products at Walgreens..

And I filled it up with some pencils, a sharpener, a pencil shaped eraser and a writing pad. I wonder if he will be as excited about receiving this stuff as he is about receiving a toy…?
