Be thankful this post does not include a smell option because it is RIPE in this house these days.  

Sunday night/Monday morning NJhusband let Orion out around midnight for his "last call" for potty. He opened the door to let him back in and went into the downstairs bathroom so he didn't notice right away that something was wrong. 

I was in bed with the baby (still cosleeping) and all of a sudden I am awakened by a TERRIBLE smell and Orion rolling ALL over our room. It's then that I hear NJhusband yelling for Orion and saying he got sprayed by a skunk. Orion runs downstairs rolling all over every carpet on the way down. We finally caught him on his bed downstairs and got him outside but the damage was done. The entire house was FILLED with the smell of skunk. It's been two days and I still can't get the smell out. Orion still smells, my house still smells and I swear I smell. 

I've done all I know to do. I'm diffusing essential oils, have washed Orion 4 times and have scrubbed every carpet. It's just not helping. 

Needless to say there won't be any play dates or parties at our house for awhile. 

If you have any tips on skunk smell removal PLEASE comment. We are a stinky hot mess over here!

This is Orion's I got skunked face. Poor poor guy!

Toasted Graham Latte

Normally I like my coffee to taste like coffee. I don't do those drinks that are basically flavored steamed milk. I love smores though so Starbucks had my interest peaked with the words "toasted" and "graham". 

I did order it with an extra shot so I would get more coffee flavor but I have to say not s lot of the graham flavor came through. It was good but it just didn't scream "graham" to me. Though come to think of it what does graham really taste like.

On the upside that extra shot enabled me to do three loads of laundry, a load of dishes, make a few freezer dinners and walk the dog so I'll definitely be ordering again.
