Owl Throw Up/ Owl Reguratation/ Owl Pellets Or Yogurt Clusters with Raisins, Pretzels, and Peanuts

  Today. I woke up, put on a pair of jeans, a t-shirt, and tennis shoes and brought the 4-year-old to pre-school. No make-up. Hair barely brushed. I dropped her off, got back into my car and decided to spend the next 3 hours shopping for Shelbi’s (13 th) birthday coming up this Sunday. And while I was shopping for perfume, mascara (this is what my 13-year-old dreams of), jewelry, and whatever . . . . . .I kept catching glimpses of myself in the mirror. Black circles under my eyes. Frumpy, Product Read more […]

Corn with Mayo, Paprika, and Parmesan Cheese & Kids who are blinding themselves senselessly!

My friends.I’d like to tell you a story.A Christmas Story.A story about love, patience, and a yelling screaming lady.Oh.And a blind kid. Around these parts (my house) when dusk hits, the lights go out (we turn down all the lights, except for the holiday lights and walk around a semi-dark house with twinkling Christmas colors). On a perfect day, homework will be done, and I will turn off the Christmas music (that plays non-stop) and turn ON the television. To something that has to do with Christmas. Read more […]

Ramblings on Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Butterscotch Bread Pudding for your Thanksgiving Dessert!

[If you haven’t already, enter my latest giveaway, it ends 11/20/11. It’s for Chinese Food. Yum.] As I type this it is exactly 2 days 17 hours and 07 minutes and 56 seconds before Breaking Dawn Part 1 comes out. THIS IS A HUGE DEAL. I read all of the books in the span of 2 weeks. There are 4, and they are huge, and I have 4 kids. That’s a big deal. I watched the first movie Twilight at home with my husband and I fell in love all over again, with him, cinema, and ummm. . .errrrrr. . . .Edward Cullen. Read more […]

Thanksgiving Table – My Absolute Favorite Macaroni and Cheese

I don’t even know why I’m mad anymore.Maybe it’s because everybody always blames everything on me. Right now, I should be calling my husband on the phone but I’m a little ticked off. He left this morning without kissing me, and that is no way to start your day off. A kiss from me could cure world hunger, create world peace. I’m just sayin’.Anyway it’s probably because I yelled at him. Because he said my daughter could get crabs.Him: Does Shelbi have on those new jeans we bought this weekend? Me: Read more […]
