Checking in, winner and the BEST weed killer!

Hey guys! I'm so sorry I haven't been around much or visiting any of you! We have been moving and this weekend all of our stuff will be out of the house. New tenants will be moving in on the 26th, so I will have to come back next week and get everything cleaned and ready for them. I just wanted to check in with you all! I was so surprised the other day, I won Debbie's chalk paint giveaway!! I am so excited! :) Cannot wait to use it. Also, this is sort of random but this is a really good recipe for killing weeds. We seem to have a lot them lately and they drive me nuts! My Grandpa actually told me about this. 

Here it is:
1 gallon of vinegar
1 cup of salt
2 tablespoons of dish soap

You poor out a cup of the vinegar and pour in the cup of salt and dish soap. Then you put the cup of vinegar back in and shake it up really good. I put mine into a spray bottle and just went around and sprayed all of them and I tell ya this stuff is MAGIC! The weeds were gone the next day. I was so shocked!! Love it and you cannot beat the price, I usually use pretty expensive weed killer and it doesn't work. 

Anyhow, that's all for today you guys. I will be back sometime next week I am sure. 

Have a great week!!

Thanks, for the recipe for the weed killer! Amazing that weeds can pop up with no water in one of the hottest parts of the country! lol
