nail polish in my carpet...GONE!!

sunday was a seriously a crazy day.
while ironing clothes for church.
my little chicken decided to flip my laundry
basket over and take my nail polish down.
in the process he broke a bottle of redish nail polish
on my carpet!!  i was up a creek...or so i thought!!!
i of course posted the pic. on my facebook and instantly
i had comments...but, one stuck out!
it was from my girlfriend tricia (check out her blog)
here's what she said:

I just want you to know that you can get nail polish out of carpet!!! I spent about 3 hours scrubbing it out once but it came out! Acetone (straight acetone you buy at the home improvement store) and before that Barbasol (the really cheap shaving cream) let the cream sit for a bit and then tons of Acetone!!! We got the carpets cleaned after that to get rid of the stench! Sorry about your day!

i took her advice and it worked.
i was lucky and didn't have to work on
it for very long.
it took me about 30 min. and that
junk was out!! i was soooo pumped!!
it was also the next day and dry!!

here is the before an after

via cell phone

i used acetone nail polish remover.

the culprit..i put him to work! ;)

it's GONE!!!

try it!!

shout out!

i have some new/oldies i wanna
share with you!
i love finding and sharing new things
that i love!!

i put it in my hair when its damp and
 blow dry. it leaves my hair silky and shiny.

the Brazilian Blowout!
i was a little sceptical.
i had the blowout done 2 weeks ago, and
let me make one thing clear..it's not a straightener.
it conditions and helps with friz.
it seriously cuts my straightening in half.
(i have curly, frizzy hair)

Arm and Hammer makes
a fantastic detergent.
it's cheap and smells sooo good.

this is a oldie but,... it is a goodie!
this stuff takes everything out!!

i love my Skull Candy ear phones!!
i can't say enough about them!
i use mine to run and they never..NEVER..
fall out!! i have tried everything!
(i have the ones in the top left..)

have you tried any of these products??

new dining room!

for 5 years i've had my husband's
grandmother's ethan allen ancient
dining room set.
and it totally served it's purpose.
it was great for family get together's
and party's. the kids did homework and
crafts on it... but, it was UGLY!
it was time for a major change.
i didn't want anything too formal.
i wanted the table to be big and solid.
i didn't want to pay a fortune, and i
wanted to mix the chairs.

here are some before and afters.

(my living room has changed in the process as well.)


this has to go!
(if you want my fan...let me know!)

what do you think?

have a great weekend!
