When it’s not so Nice and Easy

NiceandEasy

Well, it's been awhile, so let's talk about hair. I can't help it. I have a lot of it. And I am now at the age where I need to color it every 3 weeks. I am seriously considering getting a wig because if it's good enough for Kim on Real Housewives of Atlanta, it's good enough for me, the Not So Real Housewife of San Antonio. It takes about 3 hours when I go to a salon to get it done. A lot of the fancy salons are starting to get WIFI and serve wine. I guess I shouldn't complain about sitting in a chair surfing Pinterest will sipping chardonnay, as a matter of fact, it sounds like a typical … [Read more...]

A Brownie is a Brownie

If You Give Your Mom a Muffin

cooking

Yesterday, I woke up and decided I was going to make a special breakfast for the kids. There were 6 more days left of our summer so I wanted to surprise them with a special treat. When I attempt to make something from scratch, it is always considered a treat because my husband is the main cook in our house. Let’s just say it’s not my favorite thing to do. He cooks, I wash the dishes and everyone is happy. I decided to bake them blueberry muffins, one of their favorites. As I was getting all of the ingredients out of the refrigerator, my boy walked into the kitchen. The conversation went … [Read more...]

My Big Hair: A Historical Perspective

[Untitled]001(23)

I was born with naturally curly hair. I used to hate it when I was growing up. I finally appreciated it by the time I reached high school. I was looking through some old photos while I was cleaning out my guest bedroom closet. I could almost give you the exact date simply by seeing my hair style in the photograph. My hair style has changed over the years but one thing I couldn't help but notice was that I have really big hair. I mean, really,really big hair. I thought it would be fun for you to see a little historical look at my life of big hair. Let's call it, "Sassy-A Historical Look … [Read more...]

These are a Few of My Favorite Things!

2012-06-20 12.47.25

I am making a list for a road trip. I am going to a wedding in Dallas. I get to see my great big family and eat wedding cake. I thought I would share with you what is on my shopping list. These are things that I consider road trip necessities. First there is body butter from the Body Shop. The orange scent is so perfect for summer time. I don't wear perfume that much anymore because there are so many scented lotions to compete with the scent. This is my favorite kind. It keeps you extra soft!                 These are makeup … [Read more...]

The Guest Bedroom Closet

I finally cleaned out our guest bedroom closet. I figured it would be nice of me to have a place for my mother-in-law to hang up her clothes in the same room she was sleeping in; unlike the last fourteen years. Our guests have always had to use the hall closet to hang up their clothes when they would visit. I think she is going to be surprised! I am now left with about 6 huge boxes of pictures to sort through and about 1/4 of the clothes that were in there that I just couldn't bear to part with. It feels good. I wish I would have taken a before picture but I hadn't planned on blogging about … [Read more...]
