Wow what a week it has been! We ended up going on vacation earlier then expected and spent an amazing 8 days in Silverton Colorado. A week full of off-roading in RubiRed our Jeep and taking on some of the more challenging obstacles that came our way. From Blackbear to Kendell Mountain we saw some amazing views and maybe needed a fresh pair of undies or two! Unfortunately now it is back to the reality of life and trying to survive. So stay tuned this week as I bring you some amazing reviews, great pictures or our vacation and even some videos. If you would like a sneak peak you can find me on Instagram under mellissaslife.
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
