"Either way" as my other half would say... my ear has been HURTING me for dayssss, then my face and teeth. I'm dying. I have been doing organic all natural for about 8 years, however I have not been so good with practing holistic healing. I decided it was now or never to try---
Oh and lucky for you, I filmed it for your enjoyment. Keep in mind I look like Sh*& and I feel like it too. However all the times I try to upload the video...lucky for me it won't load! So let me give you a brief summary in two sentences. I can't watch that video of me without laughing at myself! Did I just really use the same tissue to blow my nose and wipe my mouth?
Well you should have an update from me-- a day later my pain was gone, a bunch of yellow crap came out of my nose and I eventually got the rythmn of Neti down. I learned the "proper" technique from my friends on FB. They gave me some wonderful pointers! I won't say I am enjoying it. But I do like it and I shall always be friends with Neti! Now if I can just become friends with the dentist!
Yes there is a pink flamingo, circa 1950's in our very own backyard. I can't decide if its funny or tacky. Either way it made this modern home feel vintage even if for a moment and it gave me such a giggle to witness Paisley's first hand encounter with her pink enemy!
Here is the link to the history of the pink flamingo, lawn art. http://www.uselessinformation.org/pink_flamingo/index.html

I do need a shower cap for protection! I don't wash my hair EVERY time I take a shower. So it will protect it from getting wet and save me time from having to redo my hair! And since I do love to soak in the bath--- just about every night to relax. It will protect my hair from getting wet then too. Those are the only practical reasons I can give you.
Alrighty... YES! I do think it would look CUTE. BUT--- it goes with the fact I am molding my life after how our grandparents did things and this would be something my grandma would of done to protect her hair after getting it done at the beauty parlor. It cost money to get your hair done and getting it wet after getting it permed could end it a disaster. So while its not the same EXACT reason... for me it's reason enough.
I am so glad to finally find a site that has a cute shabby chic one! $12.00 and handmade!!! Protection can be adorable and presh! Well the kind I need anyways...
Why can't I sleep? I truly think its birth order. I am the oldest of the 4 kids in my family and 16 cousins. I was in an eviroment from birth with no distractions, no loud sounds coming from other kids or bothersome sunlight gleemining in my eyes while mama does her errands. I am sure my parents were extra careful with me and kept me at home (no traveling) because I was their delicate first born. Noise. What noise? I was the only kids around! I was the noise. But low and behold I still live by those sleeping standards today. Dark, quiet and plenty of room. Things still have not changed. So...
I googled!!! I found the perfect face mask for me! It's white, girly and it even has ruffles and two bows! Guess what else??? SJP wore it in an episode of Sex n the City in black!
I ordered it and have been using it for months and it REALLY is the most comfy and perfect mask I have ever had! !! It's like a black out pillow for your eyes! I really like the fact that came from a small company AND their handmade! I like supporting small business. http://mimilamode.com/
Next purchase from Mimi this darling shower cap AND maybe another face mask! Oh heck I will take this whole set shown above!

Well while I wait for Marcus to get settled and find us a place to live I will be here at the "big house". Hopefully, next time I blog about a new place it will be a home in West Texas!
Since I love to reuse items in unexpected ways; I took vintage hankies I had and put them on Paisley and Bentley. They look sooo cute!
It actually helps people be able to tell them apart at the dog park and it keeps them cool in the heat of the summer while they play outside or go on walks. I take a hankie and dip it in cool water and tie around their neck while they play outside.
