Useful Thursday

Flat Cola

Don't pour flat cola down the sink, instead pour it into your toilet bowl and leave for an hour before flushing. It'll get rid of any limescale deposits and stains.

Wine Glasses

Use wine glasses as candle holders. To cast romantic shadows at the dinner table, place a votive candle in a thick-walled glass, anchored in a bed of sand or small pebbles (it makes wax cleanup a snap).

Coat Rack

Display photos and art on a coat rack over the mantel or in a hallway. Use ribbons or strings of different lengths to hang the arrangement from the pegs for an easy and creative change of scenery.

Paper Towel Tubes

Wrap your lights around a paper towel tube to store them for next year. They won't tangle up as easily!

We took a little trip to the Great Smoky Mountains this past weekend. Seems like we stayed busy the whole time, but we had lots of fun. The last thing we did before we came home was a ZIPLINE! We rode 6 lines which makes the tour the longest in the country. We bought disposable cameras for that adventure so I dont have any pictures from that yet. Needless to say, the girls were less afraid that the guys.

While we there there we went to Cherokee, NC and Harrah's Casino.

We had plenty of good food and drinks.

We played mini golf and rode go carts.

We drove into the mountains where we got married :)

And no trip would be complete without seeing a black bear!

Joey's Project

(that he began at 9:30 last night)

He picked the paint.

He picked the room.

He's doing the work.


Don't be too jealous of my handy hubby!
