So I Dropped Ben off at His Grandparents House and...

Should I be mad? I am not sure how I am feeling at this point, it has been a couple of days and the light sabers running down the side of his head and his name in BIG letters on the back of his head are starting to grow on me.
So this leads up to the how it happened. I dropped Ben off to have a sleepover at my parents house and came to pick him up and his head was decorated by my 16 year old brother. Everyone was laughing , but me, because Matt had said he called and asked me. I wasn't sure if I was suppose to get upset or not... so I left and called my husband, who, of course, could care less. Then I called my sister Beth, who said she would have killed him and thought I should plot against this tragedy (which Matt if you are reading this, don't do this to Nate, cause I heard what she has to say and you would be hating life) I talked to a few friends who thought I should put Nair in his shampoo, and emailed his teacher who replied, "I"m sure it will be just fine for Ben to come to school. I think he has the personality to pull it off, but I'll leave it up to you! :-)"... So all in all, I guess I just don't really care or should I care? I don't know. Thoughts?
I guess I should add a bit of background to this story, before you go ahead and make your judgement against my brother. When my brother Jacob was in the 1st grade (he is 20 now!!), my cousin Ethan and I look in and shaved a nike sign in the back of his heads, totally wicked, but I don't know if my mom was very happy about it. He was a soccer player and I guess we couldn't do an Adidas. So my mom kept bringing that up while she was laughing. But I still want the sympathy so I am writing this small. Ben also LOVES the haircut.

That's pretty funny..... Just know that one day your brothers will get married and have children of their own!
Yeah, accept I am so bad at paybacks. I thought I would short sheet his bed then I found out that was stupid.

I think it looks great! At least on a 1st grader. Ben is probably the coolest kid in school, now.

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 …
