Curly Hair Fail!!!

Okay so I was organizing my Pinterest boards yesterday when I decided to give one a try.

I'm always looking for easy ways to fix my hair. I have no clue why I thought this would work with my hair. I mean what was I thinking. My hair is way too thick & too long (this is not a bad thing, I love my hair just the way it is)! This is what I looked like trying this...

Justin & the boys thought I looked hilarious! Jaxon said I looked like I had big white ears. Personally I thought it was more Princess Leia-ish.

Twins separated at birth! Right?! Oh well it didn't work. I cooked & ate dinner with the towel tied around my head. Then it started to fall, so I just took it off. Two and a half hours later...still a wet mess. Boo! Total Pinterest fail!!!

Have y'all tried any Pinterest ideas only for them NOT to work out? Hope y'all have a great Thursday!!!

Tasty Tuesday

We had a great Labor Day weekend. It went by way to fast like most weekends do. Saturday I made Paula Deen's Fried Dill Pickles. They were sooooooo good. Find the recipe here.

Then I made the Pioneer Woman's Salsa. I've made this before and it is amazing!!! The only problem was I used jalapenos that I grew and it was a little spicy. Oops, but it still tasted good just with a little kick! Find the recipe here.

Hope y'all give these a try and hope y'all had a relaxing Labor Day! Happy Tuesday Y'all!!!

What I Lovin' Friday

This week I'm totally lovin' Ashland candles from Michael's. I went last Friday and scored some on clearance. I bought four Lilac Mist large candles for $1.99. Love them.
Then I also found these little can candles for $.20 each, so I bought 16!!! I figured I could use them in the car, bathrooms, & the boys room. Why are boys sooooooo stinky?!

So what's y'alls favorite candle and scent? I can't wait to break out the fall scented ones!!! Hope y'all have a happy Friday & weekend!!!

To Vaccinate or Not To?

This morning this is what I posted on facebook...

Watching the Today show and they're discussing pediatricians turning away children who haven't been vaccinated. I think this is a great idea. They should educate themselves on vaccines and be thoughtful of other children who can catch an illness from their child. They should find a Dr. who has the same beliefs as them & go there.

    • I agree 100%

    • My sons father and I made the decision to not vaccinate our son. he is 5 and it has been a decision that hasn't been regretted. If vaccinations work and do what they are said to do then the vaccinated kids have nothing to worry about.

    • Girl, when Luke was 4 months old he had a BAD reaction, and he almost didn't come out of it. I used to agree, but until u almost lose your child, u might change your mind!! The light in his lil' eyes was gone, it was like he was here, but he wasn't...Im SO blessed!

    • Parents should also research vaccinations, their ingredients, and there short and long term side affects

      Wrong Angela. It's the newborns and older babies who haven't received all their vaccines yet who can catch something if your son or another child is carrying it and it's proven that the most likely place to catch it is at a pedi office. I have researched all vaccines my boys have received and I'm also really sad that after asking my boys pedi almost 12 years ago if their vaccines contain mercury (which they don't) I was the first person to ask them. You're right people, should educate themselves.

      Candice I feel where you're coming from. We had a long first year with our youngest, Evan. He was a premie, 2 months early, and had 2 very sever cases of RSV and long periods of time in the PICU. So I know way to well what your talking about. I also refused follow up visit at the pedi's office because at the time they still saw unvaccinated children and I didn't want to take the chance of him catching something with his already weak immune system. I still respect y'all's decisions b/c that's the way y'all want to raise y'alls children and people should raise their children based on their beliefs!!!
