Family History


Since this is my first family post, I decided to do something that one of my friends did, called "Photo Tag"

#1 Self Portrait

Yes, this might take you back to the 1970's photo of your mother in high school, but with the stress in my life, sometimes that "in the moment" pictures just should not be posted. Here is what I would look like had I graduated from high school in 1974! I am going to boot camp, 5 days a week, and just made a bet with my husband to not eat sugar for a month... so if you see me don't feed me! Maybe I will add a photo in 6 weeks ;)







#2 What are my kids doing right now:

Are you serious? I have been working on this blog all day, they are in bed. Well, I can honestly say that Ben is sleeping, as for Audrey and Emma, they are watching TV in my bed. I know, it is past 9, but they just sit so quietly when "Wow Wow Wubzy" comes on... who else is going to babysit them at this hour? Plus knowing what 1 out of 3 is doing is great :) I can tell you my husband is watching baseball on the couch.












#3 My Fridge

So I started this new thing at grocerysmarts.com and am totally addicted to coupons and saving money on groceries. So much, that I have now been "hired" to work with the company on teaching mothers how to shop on a budget. Amazing, since I don't know how to budget! Plus, it seems like I always am shopping for a family of 10, instead of 5... hmm. I think that is one thing my mother taught me well, keep the fridge stocked!



#4 My Kitchen Sink

As usually my minions were able to unload and load the dishes before they went to bed. I have to say, it is "totally wicked" that my kids can do the dishes every day. So yes, my dishes are always done and Audrey will AJAX the sink. Did I mention they do the laundry?





#5 My Favorite Shoes

Are you kidding me, are there any other shoes? Manolo Blahniks, of course. I might not be able to afford them, but heck, they are always on my wish list. Right now I am into the ones of the right, Mladar, Patent leather pointed toe maryjane. 90mm thin covered heel. Leather sole. Lightly padded insole. Made in Italy. Retailing at Barney's of New York for a $575.00, does somebody smell a Christmas Present?



#6 My Favorite Room in the House

It's the balcony. The view is amazing and reminds me of places I have been and places I will go.










#7 Dream Vacation


6 days, 7 nights with my husband in Paris, France. Kids at the Grandparents.







#9 The Room I Spend the Most Time In


The room with the TV, are you kidding me. They call this "the great room" becuase it connects the living room with the kitchen... so where else would a mother of 3 be? I feed the kids, watch my soaps, eat my bon-bons, and then patiently cook dinner for my husband before he comes home from work... ;) Hey,. wait, I think that is Tyler's dream vacation.

Glad to see you joining the blogging world. Do your kids really do laundry? I gotta figure that one out.

Hair Callick or Cowlick

THIS IS BY FAR MY MOST POPULAR POST... WILL YOU PLEASE CLICK THE BUTTON TO THE RIGHT AND FOLLOW ME WHILE YOU ARE VISITING?!

SO a dear friend and I were talking (who will remain nameless, but anybody have to say focaccia?) and I was telling her how Audrey could NEVER have bangs because she has this horrible "Cow Lick". This woman, who is still anonymous, starts laughing at me and says it is "Callick". I was like "no" it is "cowlick"so I called my dad and he reconfirmed her grammar. Being TOTALLY embarrassed (as I usually am when I misspronounce a word... what was that last one? Oh yeah, I thought it was kick in the "grown", but it is "groin"), so I didn't question her. I also then went home and told the story to my husband who agreed with her and laughed at me. I then decided the proper thing to do was to google it and this is where I AM RIGHT! Here you go, all those callick lovers...

The term you want is actually “cowlick”,…

Recipes

I am posting some of my classic recipe copy cats that I have improved and worked on...

Tito's Taco Salsa Recipe

Ingredients:

8 roma tomatoes
1.5 small pickled jalapenos
One pickled carrot from the jalapeno can
One thin slice of white onion
Juice from 1/4 lime
about a tsp of salt
ten or so dashes of pepper (too much overpowers the other flavors)

I use my chop wizard and chop it all up into very small squares... then the secret is that you have to let it sit in the fridge for 24 hours.

5 Lies that Nerium Doesn't Tell you about The Brand Partners

Yes, it is true. I have fallen in love with something else besides my kids, my husband, taco bell, and Disneyland. It is called Nerium and is the most amazing wrinkle magician in a box which I have ever had the pleasure of coming into contact with in my 30's. I tried it for 5 days and I knew with every fiber of my being that I needed this cream as much as it needed me. When I went into the bathroom each evening to dampen my face and apply 4-5 pumps I was like that of a weary housewife seeing a Diet Coke first thing in the morning. I haven't felt this way about something since being able to stay up to midnight for the pre-taped ball drop in Time Square with Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve (B.S. – Before Seacrest).

So when I found this Nerium, I face-booked and Instagrammed. I then got my Twitter account up and running because I had to shout from the roof top that THIS simple antidote  for those lines brought on by my children conundrums and the bags brought on by wandering …
