The Birthday Menu


Iceberg wedge with homemade blue cheese dressing

Oven-roasted chicken

Chili Roasted Potatoes (alá Rachael Ray)

Sprinkles cupcakes (strawberry for me, milk chocolate for D)

And for starters…Grey Goose Pear Vodka! (It was on sale at the grocery store!) (Hell yes!)


Has It Really Been A Week Already?


Man, I’m riding this hair thing to its death. I’m just a little busier than usual, with Father’s Day being yesterday and D’s birthday tomorrow.

Yesterday, an impromptu mini-block party erupted on our lawn complete with pear vodka. PEAR VODKA, I SAY! Has anyone had the pleasure of sipping on a little pear vodka? My neighbor put the hard sell on me – I’m not usually a flavored vodka drinker, but I finally caved in. And might I say, delicioso! So light and refreshing!

5 hours later, after strollering under the influence to the grocery store, I made rather tasty chipotle blue cheese burgers alá Rachael Ray. (Have I mentioned I’ve bought several of her cookbooks now? Why does she have to be such a good cook? I think I love her.)

Must go create tomorrow’s birthday menu. Oh yeah – if you haven’t sent a photo yet, WHY NOT?


Two Things


1. Oh my God. Y’all are so hot. Seriously, take a look at yourselves!

2. And please, for the love of all things OCD, someone send me a photo to make my people square complete. It physically hurts.

UPDATE: Janssen, thank you!


Enough About Me, What About YOUR Hair?


I must admit, I had a lot of fun creating the last post. I don’t know what is- maybe I was a barber in my former life, but I love everything about hair. You should have seen me watching the first season of Shear Genius, pausing the damn DVR every 3 seconds, studying certain techniques, checking out colors, etc. LAME-O!

I fully enjoy good hair days. And it doesn’t have to be in the traditional sense, either. Just a day where you feel great about yourself, and it puts an extra spring in your step. Don’t you? Well, I was thinking, I bet I have some damn fine readers and I would love to see photos of you.

Here’s what I’m thinking – next to my FAQ tab, I’m going to add a new tab (see! up there!) where I can create a one big mosaic of chicas at their best (dudes, too!). What say you? Let’s get this going! Here’s what I need you to do:

1. Send a photo of your sassy self to

2. Include your first name and your website’s URL (not mandatory – only if you want people to check out your website).

3. I’ll do the rest!

See, easy peasy. Check out the Flickr set. I can’t wait to see!
