Audrey is a Cheerleader!!!

I think this has to be the proudest moment of my life as Audrey is a full fledged cheerleader. She had her first competition in December and then we drove down to San Deigo and she cheered in the Poinsetta Bowl. It was just adorable! She totally went out on the field in front of thousands of people and did her routine. We went to Lego Land and Seaworld.... which was a blast! We saw Auntie Katie and Uncle Noah there and went to the peir. The kids all hated the sand between their toes (I guess they haven't lived much). After we went down and played in the ocean we walked back to the sidewalk to get something to eat and all three kids freaked out and tried to get their feet clean. What a joke! Katie thought it was funny that they wanted to be so clean, but I think they just didn't like the feel of sand as they walked. Audrey saw her first Palm Tree and said, "I love those trees" Ben then added "Those are Palm Trees. I know that because I saw them in a book I have at school" What do you do. I guess we are all so Utah! We finally saw Heidi and her kids at SeaWorld. They had been there longer than us and were cold, but we had enough time to see the Shamu Show and take a few keepsakes. Anyhow, enjoy the pictures!


It looks like you guys had a blast! Hope you guys are having fun and doing great there in Lehi!

My 3 year old HATES getting her feet dirty. We have taken her to the beach a few times, and she will not get off the blanket. Very strange...

Hair Callick or Cowlick


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”,…


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

Tito's Taco Salsa Recipe


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 …
