I’m debating changing my hair.  I’ve pretty much done everything there is to do to my hair other than go platinum blonde.  I’m going to take you down a very colorful hair past and ask you your opinion.  What’s your favorite?  And if you find one you absolutely hate then you can voice your opinion–just know that I’m very vengeful so if you say something too negative I will retaliate.  Ok, I’m kidding–sort of.   (And I apologize to everyone in the pictures if you didn’t want them on here–too bad!!)


Option A. Short and brown (not to be confused with a description of me short/lily white)


Option B. Short and Blonde (Funny story–for some reason it didn’t register that I didn’t need to use as much shampoo/conditioner with short hair–so my hair was constantly greasy and disgusting)


Option C.  Medium length/red-blonde highlights (This is such an OLD picture–it was on our anniversary–aww how sweet)


Option D. Long/Red (yes that is the same cardigan as the first picture. I hate showing off my arms and apparently I thought a cap sleeve was enough to hide that hanging ham on the side of my body also known as my arm)


Option E.  Long/With MAJAH bangs (I hate this picture of me but this is definitely my all time favorite of Sadie!  And I think it’s pretty obvious that I didn’t really know how to style my bangs—oy!)


Option F. Long/Dark (this is basically what I have it like now–which of course mentally makes me want to dye it blonde and chop it off!)


Option G. Long/Blonde (Sorry Lauren–I know you hate this picture) I like this color but I have to be tan to really pull it off. Plus my hair grows so fast (which my hairdresser sister-in-law is super jealous of.  I always have to remind her that if it grows fast on my head it grows fast everywhere else.  Hence the braided leg hair…) that I have to get it dyed more often. 

I’m going to be real honest here people I’m pretty much too cheap/lazy to change it too much but if I get enough opinions and one heavily outweighs all of them then I may change!

Maybe I should get Sadie’s color


Or go VERY dramatic and get Lexi’s…

I might possibly be leading the most boring life of anyone I know! And I’m not complaining, although it does put a hamper on having stuff to put on here.  I know you all come here daily HOPING above all hope that there will be something new. Or maybe not…

I keep thinking about this weekend and the past couple of days–surely SOMETHING has happened–nothing.  Unless you want to know what happened on last nights WWE (still crying over the fact that I know EVERYTHING there is to know about WWE and I actually CARE what happens) or what it feels like to eat half of a family-sized Reeses Pieces bag–on.my.own.– then I can enlighten you.  Ok I probably ate more like 3/4 on my own–then my husband threw them away in disgust. 

For now let’s just take a trip down memory lane and look at a couple of pictures of Lexi and Sadie as pups–I love them.



I still get this look from her and it makes my heart melt everytime.  Also, her collar still sticks out like that.  It’s like she’s constantly wearing a bowtie…


Did I ever tell you about Lexi’s balloon ears?  I’ll save that for another time.  Let’s just say her ears in this picture are probably twice the size they are now.

What are two girls supposed to do when their husbands are off playing tennis?

Make cake pops of course! 

We took a stab at Bakerella’s chick cake pops. 

Let’s take a look-see at how they turned out, shall we?


Your standard chicky…


Full body chicky


I’m calling this one Fu Manchu Chick even though it’s not technically a Fu Manchu–you catch my drift!


This is the party mug–blushing chick, conjoined twins chicks, fu manchu, and Groucho Marx Chick



Devil Chick!!!!


This was the first batch–hence the random sprinkles. 

I must confess I pretty much did NO decorating (although I did DIP them all)–it was all the talented and lovely Lauren. 


Speaking of Chicks, man…

Prepare yourself for PEAR BUNNIES!!!

According to my mother we’ve been doing pear bunnies for over 25 years.  My brother learned how to make them in his little 3 year old class. 

I hope I can pass on a tradition you all can share on Easter!

(Keep in mind that since we’re all adults in my family not as much detail goes into the bunny so it’s eyes,nose, and/or ears my be disproportionate to the body!)






Here’s the breakdown:



Ears=almond sliver(or any other nut sliver)

Nose=half a maraschino cherry

Tail=marshmallow (the original recipe was cottage cheese so it’s up to you!)

And you set it on a bed of lettuce…of course those are lettuce scraps because it wouldn’t be tradition if my mom didn’t forget one component of the Pear Bunny!


This picture is from a couple of weeks ago when we were supposed to get 10 inches of snow and got maybe a dusting.

Happy Easter…

Easter used to be my favorite holiday–mainly because of the candy (Hello Peeps!) but it’s sort of lost its luster.  Probably because I’m slowly getting to the age where it’s not cool to still get Easter baskets–although Mom if you’re reading this I still expect one on Sunday.   We also make these things called Pear Bunnies.  Anyone else do that?  I’ll take a picture on Sunday to show you if you haven’t a foggiest idea at all what I’m talking about.  They’re so simple but so FUN (and lame at the same time).


From my house to yours…



(I can’t get the picture to look right at all)

I think I may have overdone the chicks…

And I’m not really sure what’s on top of their heads but it seemed appropriate…

Me in a hushed voice, “hey–come take a picture of Lexi and I napping.  But be quiet so she doesn’t wake up.”




Of course Lexi proceeds to wake up because she hears dad and dad trumps mom anyday…


I don’t want you all to be jealous of how tan I am either…It took me years to get that bronze glow.


Looking at this picture I’m surprised I let my face get that close to her hind side without a gas mask. 

And here’s the little brown one too…


(I took this picture and it is SO much better than my hubbys…I kid, I kid)

I don’t even know where to begin with this.

It all started Sunday morning while reading the paper. (Shocking huh?! Me reading the paper? I only get it for the Target ad–let’s be real)

An advertisement made me laugh really, really hard.

I know it had to be used in some way.

So, we started a game.

It all started innocently in the refrigerator…


(Please ignore the fact that it’s sitting on top of left over gravy and Sunkist is sitting right next to it–I was forgiven for my sins.)

The treadmill was next–which that’s the most action the treadmill has seen in weeks!


Then I couldn’t find it anywhere so I went to let the dogs out and lo and behold–BAM!



I have to say, he’s a little dead in the eye–Tyra could teach him a thing or two about “smiling with your eyes…”

This was the best placement–and I have to give credit where credit is due–it was my husband.

I drive home from work, go to pull in the garage only to be greeted by:



He is kind of cute though…


But not as cute as them!!

And yes, this post was very obviously brought to you by Geico, ok, not really…

I am being featured over at the blog Newlyweds!  Jenna and I have been blogging buddies for a little while now and she’s been featuring newlyweds on her blog weekly!  So go over there and check it out–I really give some great advice. (If blaming your husband for everything is good advice)  And come back a little later when I’m going to share about a really fun game my husband and I have been playing all week…(and no it’s not dirty)
