A little bit CrAzY over here!!



Ok I have been one CrAzY Mama over here!! 

So much fun stuff has been happening with my kids that
I have been out of pocket and quite frankly,
out of my mind.
It's normal life but somehow I manage to make it look soooooo
much more complicated than it is.
I'm good at that.

But before I catch you up on some of the "highlights"
I thought I would give you a quick HAIR TIP.

TIP

When toweling your hair dry, NEVER rough the towel back and forth.

This is such a No-NO and people do it all the time.

Instead, take your towel and SQUEEZE your hair dry.

By holding the towel closed on one section of hair the water is absorbed into
the towel.  Roughly moving the towel around trying to use air to dry your hair works
but it also makes combing it out afterward a nightmare
Much like my schedule has been the last month!!!
Whew, May is over.  BRING ON SUMMER!!!

Beauty Water


I usually chug a bottle of water (20oz) in the morning and one before going to bed.
I try to sip on a bottle of water through the night. 
It seems the more you drink - the more you have to have it.
It's like a GOOD drug. Water has so many wonderful benefits.
Good for detoxing the body. Good for your skin. Weightloss.  And the list goes on and on. So why do I find myself having such a hard time drinking it during the day???!!!!!!!! 
What is it about this drink that presents me with such mental anguish?  
I used to be addicted to Diet Coke. And I don't mean I just liked it.
It was a serious addiction.  I feel awful because I am responsible for my
husbands addiction to it too!!  I am not so proud of that. :-(
BUT, for almost a year now I have just about put the Diet Coke down for good.
So it's all good, right?   Welllllll, seems I replaced it with Dt Mt Dew.  
Ok I swapped one bad drink for another. I just love and feel like I have to have
the "kick" that they provide.
So to get a handle on this craziness I have moved on to Sweet Tea.
I'm from the south so it really is the obvious choice.
As with everything else ( exception being water ) it has a downfall too.  Sugar.
Ugh. That's not good for the scale!!!!  
 So,...my eternal quest to be good,
and do the right thing,
and  ENJOY  IT
continues.



But on a happy note, I'm loving my wedge TOMS and lilac polish.
Ahhhhhh happiness. 

What about you, is drinking water a pleasure or challenge for you?
