No Spiders Allowed!

Last night I was getting Annie ready for bed when she spotted a spider on the wall. “Spider!” she screamed like a miniature Heather, then ran into the family room, jumped on the couch, and pulled a blanket over her. “Cut it out, Annie. It’s time to go to bed.” “No!” she yelled through the…

Surfing Sunday 6.26

It’s my birthday tomorrow, wooo!!! On Friday night, Mike took me out to dinner to celebrate. My mom hung out with the kids so we could have a nice night, just the two of us. Of course, we ended up talking about them most of the time, but at least we could talk about them…

Home Spider Defense

This post is brought to you by Ortho®, a Scotts Miracle-Gro brand. Thanks, Ortho! I love our house, but if there’s one thing I don’t like about the place is that it has more than its fair share of spiders. As you know, I do not like spiders. In fact, I hate spiders so much that…

I know. You’re like, “Heather, WTF, you hate spiders.” And you’re right, I hate them so much — stupid spiders, thinking they’re so great with their eight legs. But Annabel isn’t afraid of spiders and I’m trying to keep it that way because someone has to kill them for me when Mike isn’t home! Last year Annabel…

DIY Mummy-Wrapped Halloween Letters

I know, I know, Halloween stuff already. But I thought of this idea back in June and I’ve been so excited to try it. With October only two weeks away (aaaaah!), I thought I’d share how I made these for anyone who’s ready to get a jump on things.

Stop Posting Your Spider Photos On Facebook Already

At the end of the day, I love sitting down and scrolling through my Facebook feed to see what’s going on with my pals. I always enjoy seeing new pictures of kids (aw), updates on jobs (yay), and shared articles (interesting). You know what I do not enjoy? I do not enjoy seeing pictures of…

The One With Rat Genitals

We have a quarterly pest control service. We don’t get anything out of the ordinary, but as you know, I do not do spiders. It works well…despite getting the occasional spider inside the house, we haven’t had any other problems with bugs, ants, etc. The pest control service is a fairly large company, but the…
