Thrift Store Finds #2

I'm finally getting back to a schedule of sorts! We've had all kinds of crazy things happening for our family, including the ending of the school year for all four of us, PreK graduation for Brady, a trip to Massachusetts, Ryan's brother's wedding, and me starting summer session at my school. After all of that, the first thing I made sure to get back on schedule was the first Saturday of the month at Goodwill for their 50% off sale. It was a great day!

Natural Mole Repellent: Protect Your Yard and the Environment

First impressions are often something that those around you use to judge who you are and what you represent, and your yard is something that many of your neighbors and members of the community use to gauge who you are. If you have noticed trails of dirt in your yard, there is a good chance you have moles. Aside from the aesthetic problems moles can cause on your property, there is other damage they can incur. While there are a number of chemical repellents as well as those that will kill the animal, there is a natural mole repellent you should try.

Taking Control of Your Yard
Anyone who has ever suffered with moles in their yard understands the frustration involved with the problem. They alter the appearance of the yard, destroy plants and gardens, and make it difficult to mow the grass. If you are suffering, you likely feel as though you have lost control of your yard. While you likely don't want to kill the animal, you simply want it to take up residence in the wild. With Repellex, you can do just that.

There are a number of ways in which moles can be removed from your yard; however, if you are concerned with using a product that is natural, your options are significantly limited. We offer our clients a number of natural remedies to rid them of their problem in an eco-friendly manner. When you search through our easy-to-navigate website, you can browse through the options we make available and pick the one that best fits your preferences. Among the options we offer include:

  • Ready-to-spray compounds


  • Systemic tablets


  • Compound mixtures


  • How Our Products Work
    Our product works by encouraging pesky moles to find another place to call home. When you choose to use the tablet form, the product delivers a concentrate of hot pepper to the root of the plants that moles eat under the ground. This significantly alters the taste of the plants, and the mole will quickly find somewhere else to call home. Those who use our spray options take advantage of a product that forms a protective coating around the plants in the yard. Whichever form of the product you choose, you can expect to see the moles in your yard vacate.

    Long Pallet Shelf

    I shared a while ago some pallet shelves we made for the boys' room. I hung them in a little nook to hold some of their books. Since then, they received bunk beds as a gift, and Jackson needed a way to store his things on the top bunk. I saw the perfect inspiration in a Pottery Barn catalog and knew just what to do to create a similar look.

    Easter's On It's Way!

    We are on Spring Break this week, which is unbelievable, since it was snowing here yesterday (yes, in Alabama!). Luckily, the day before had wonderful weather, so we were able to work on our gardens. While stuck inside, I've been doing a little decorating for Easter.

    Style and Quality are What You Will Find When Looking for Slow Pitch Softball Turf Shoes


    If a person was to go to a ballpark on any Saturday or Sunday afternoon during summer, it is very likely that they would see a slow pitch ball game. This is a very popular game and has been around for more than a hundred years. The basic difference between fast pitch and slow pitch softball is the way the ball is thrown. A slow pitch pitcher has to throw the ball underhand and it has to come up in a high arc towards the batter. For people who regularly play softball, one the most important things that they need to think about is their footwear.

    Mardi Gras Wreath

    I was lucky enough to be selected to host a Zatarain's House Party for Mardi Gras. I was already planning on decking out the house, but this gives me more motivation! The first thing I always think about when decorating for anything is a wreath for the front door.

    Organize Your Kitchen Cabinet Drawers

    Clutter in the kitchen cabinet drawers is a nuisance and inevitable. We start out with an intent of organization and neatness that would make Felix look like Oscar. Only it's not unusual for drawers to gradually become overrun, packed with items in a pattern that doesn't make any sense. How did that fork end up in the same place as the hammer? You know you have a rolling pin but where is it? Why is there so much in there that opening it becomes a wrestling match?

    New Fiber One Meal Bars

    I had the opportunity to try the new Fiber One Meal Bars through BzzAgent recently and was impressed by the ingredients and nutritional value. They include filling protein and fiber to sustain you longer than other bars. When I tried them, I found that I liked to use these as an on-the-go snack that was easy and convenient to pack in my lunch or throw in my purse.

    Last Minute Valentines

    It has been a fun day being cooped up in the house with all of my guys! We had a snow day, which is pretty much unheard of in Alabama. And the crazy thing is... They're calling for more tonight!

    Since I was on lock down Saturday to get our taxes completed, I've been itching to do some crafting. We made the boys' valentines on Sunday, but that just wasn't enough. Today was the perfect opportunity to add some last minute decorations.

    A Dresser Make-Over

    Someone was asking at work what I've been posting about recently, and I told her I hadn't been on here since before Christmas. She said that didn't sound like me, so I figured I better get back to posting!
    We have a little nook off of the great room into the master bedroom. The plan was to move our fish tank from the bedroom to here, but I wanted to paint the dresser intended to hold it. Our fish tank wasn't looking so pretty anymore, and we were lucky enough to be offered a free fish tank from Brady's preschool teacher. This meant I had to kick it into high gear and get the dresser ready.
