about me

Denver, Colorado, United States
i'm 33. i live with my husband, baby daughter 2 dogs and 1 kitty. i'm a chemical engineer with an MBA and work in technical sales. i tend to bite off more than i *think* i can chew and end up with a full bulging mouth for awhile before i can finally swallow. i thrive in chaos, but strive for order.



our house is being attacked by fruit flies.  they are mostly in the kitchen, but aren't afraid of exploring the bathroom and living room.

it is SO annoying.  and quite embarrassing.  i know i don't clean my house as often as i should, but we are not dirty people, so i really can't understand why we can't get rid of these little buggers.

a few days ago, i put all of our fruit in the fridge and wiped down the counters really well.   then i poured baking soda down the drain, followed with vinegar to let it fizz and clean all the nooks and crannies of the garbage disposal.   and then i poured a whole kettle of boiling water down the drain. 

i have 3 apple cider/saran wrap traps set out to catch them.

we take the trash out every day and have a closed trash can. 

it feels like nothing is working!  any ideas of other places they could be breeding?


  1. We get them here during the summer too. Strange that they are coming out in the cold. Does it help to keep the fruit in the fridge?
    BTW, how did your thrifting trip go last week? If want some advice on how to score in the thrift store, just let me know :)

  2. we put the fruit in the fridge, so I have NO IDEA where they are breeding!!

    thrift store shopping was mostly miss - i got a couple of scarves and 2 books for my nieces. :) I would LOVE some advice - you can send me a FB message!!
