Should I be upset?

This could go two ways, to be upset or not to be upset, that is the question. I have learned after 7 years of parenting, that I just don't care when my kids color on themselves, even in permant marker. How can you be upset about artistic expression? I did google "how to get permanant marker off skin" and had 168,000 results. I liked this responds the best

I frequently use Sharpies on my skin to test out whether or not I'd like a tattoo there or not, and just to have fun creating temporary ones.I've gotta say, out of the 12 years of doing this, the dish detergent thing has worked best for me. Soap and water fades it, or course, but once faded it's even more annoying to have there because it can take days of scrubbing to get those last little marks away. I started using dish detergent a few years back, and bam! Gone with minimal scrubbing.

So I tried the minimal scrubbing with dish detergent, which didn't work, but have to say I am more worried about what Tyler is going to say (he thinks I am not very good at watching the kids while he is at work ;)

*** Tyler just walked in and saw her and said "You let her do that" Yeah, that is it

**** She got up the next morning and had slept on her hand, her face is red now too like something from Charlie and the Chocolate factory, YIKES!


Shame on you for "letting" her do that to herself. ;)

Yikes is all I can say! Good luck!

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 …
