Deals to Meals Bosch Giveaway

Deals to Meals is having an awesome giveaway going on until June 30th. They are giving away a free Bosch mixer!
I don't know about the rest of you, but for me that's one item I've been coveting since I've been married. My Mom has one and I grew up eating homemade bread of her making, but have never felt like I could venture to make my own homemade dough without one of these little beauties. So, yeah, here's hoping. See here for details.

No More Mosquitoes

Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.

Julie Notes:
I have tried this and it really seems to work. I've also rubbed one over my daughters arms and then placed it in her pocket when we're outside in the yard chalking in the evening and I've watched mosquitoes come near to her, hover a moment and then fly away. I've never seen one land when she's got a dryer sheet about her, which is awesome because I hate the smell of the sprays and I don't like using them on small kids or babies.

I also love to use them at night, when I see a mosquito flying about the house, or just as a precaution, I'll put them in my babies bassinet or next to my daughters pillow. I'm not awake to be sure, but so far I think it's working.

"People who tell you not to let little things bother you have never tried sleeping in a room with a mosquito."
