cucumber's don't just taste good...

1. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower? Try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide a soothing, spa-like fragrance.

2. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in a small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long. The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give off a scent undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the area.

3. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem area for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing the visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!!

4. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed and wake up refreshed and headache free. Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium, avoiding both a hangover and headache!!

5. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge? Cucumbers have been used for centuries and often used by European trappers, traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off starvation.

6. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you don't have enough time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut cucumber over the shoe, its chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine that not only looks great but also repels water.

7. Out of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice and rub it along the problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak is gone!

8. Stressed out and don't have time for massage, facial or visit to the spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, the chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber with react with the boiling water and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has been shown the reduce stress in new mothers and college students during final exams.

9. Just finish a business lunch and realize you don't have gum or mints? Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the phytochemcials will kill the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath.

10. Looking for a 'green' way to clean your faucets, sinks or stainless steel? Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to clean, not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the shine, but is won't leave streaks and won't harm you fingers or fingernails while you clean.

ski town shoot-out

Over Father's Day weekend Jackson played in a lacrosse tournament in Park City. They put together a Brighton Bengals Thunder team and Ryan helped coach, it was so much fun. We decided to stay in Park City for the weekend during the tournament and stayed at the Dakota Mountain Lodge at the Canyons, it was amazing! The staff was wonderful and our room (mini house) was aWeSoMe!! We were treated to an amazing sunset every night from our balcony, it was breathtaking. The boys swam everyday between games and at night at the pool while Ryan and I read, relaxed and enjoyed the fresh mountain air. Jackson's team played great and Jackson scored during the last game :) It was so much fun to get out of the city to the beautiful Wasatch mountain's, we forget sometimes how lucky we are to live so close! We look forward to going a a mini vacation very soon :)

Chords of Strength

My cute boys got to meet an amazing young man today... David Archuleta! David recently released his new book Chords of Strength and had a book signing today and the boys just had to go. Landon kept saying "Hi David" over and over and didn't want to leave it was so cute. David signed their book "To 3 awesome Cundick boys" how cute is that!! Ayden quickly found a chair to start reading. David even took a minute to send a short message to my brother Chirstopher who is serving a mission in Chile!! We can't wait until his new CD comes out in the fall and we will forever be Archie fans!!
