Life is Sporadic

My sister, Beth, was talking to me on a Wednesday and said, let's go to California for Katie's baby shower on Friday... Tyler had the weekend off so I thought, Ok, makes sense. So we packed in the car and took our babies (we'll I took Audrey who is 5) and headed back home to South Pasadena. The ride down was fantastic (if you count that I almost got hit by a semi because the snow was so hard that I couldn't see anything in front of me or that we had to stop for the bathroom every other exit), but it was great. I guess you can't go wrong when you are blasting Spice Girls and Bon Jovi. We got to South Pas on Friday around noon and did the whole "high school" thing... swung by Carmines, got a Diet Coke at McDonald's, got a curly donut from Winchells, ate at Beef Bowl... and the pounds were packing on. Actually, I think the most exciting part about being "home" was that right when we got out of the car... we just sat on the grass for about 2 hours in the sun. HOLY MOLEY, the weather rocks. And I might add that I have smokin' hot hair in California, I don't know why... it just always looks great. We went to the beach and ate some more... overall, it was totally a wicked vacation for a day in a half...

Audre with her sea glass... Thanks Leah!

What a cute belly, Katie!
Baby Kate... she LOVES me!
Sisters, sisters!
Audre picked some flowers... big surprise.

Leah, I love this photo... I am going to canvas it when it goes on sale. Lol.

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 …
