So wrong

Ok this looks so wrong but it is so awesome! You suck the snot right out of the baby's nose. I read tons of reviews on this and the ER doctor even suggested it. Don't worry you will not get anything in your mouth. There is a filter and you won't be able to even suck that hard. I used it on my 4 month baby and she slept good all night. I highly recommend this product.


I got mine at Target for $15.99

My summer go to products

Its a10. Love this stuff. It makes my hair so soft.


Essie bikini so teeny. I wear this color a lot. Its such a pretty blue color.


Omg Tree Hut Brazilian nut scrub smells so good. I have repurchased this a ton. It is about $5 at Walmart.


Tarte Amazonian powder foundation looks flawless on the skin. Love this stuff



Ocean Potion Ever Glow I use this every morning on my legs. Its super cheap at Walmart and it gives me a gradual tan that smells nice.


Origins Drink Up Mask is one of the best overnight masks ever. You just need a tiny bit.

There you have it. That is just a couple of my favorite products.

This is da bomb!

I have been making some bath bombs lately. They smell so good and my bath water feels so soft. Lush has some really good smelling bath bombs but the price is not awesome. I just knew there had to be a way to make them. I was right there are tons of recipes online. Here is my recipe that I tried and liked

1 C baking soda

1/2 C Epsom salt

1/2 C citric acid

1 tsp vitamin E oil

Couple drops of fragrance oil (i used lavender)

Food coloring

Water in a spray bottle

Mix citric acid, baking soda, and Epsom salt until all clumps are gone. Add your oil, fragrance, and food coloring until mixed really good. I used my hands. Your going to spray some water in the mixture until it feels like a clump of packed snow. Do not put to much water. For my cupcake bombs I packed the mixture into a muffin liner in a muffin tin. For my regular bombs I just used a ice cream scoup. Let them dry overnight.



Icing for my cupcake bath bombs

3Tbsp of meringue powder

1 lb of powdered sugar

1/4 tsp cream of tarter

5-6 tbsp of warm water

A couple drops fragrance oil


Mix warm water and meringue powder in a GLASS bowl. Add sugar and cream of tarter until mixed good. Add fragrance. Put into a piping bag and ice your dry cupcake. I added some dry lavender on top of mine. Dry overnight.

I also did chocolate ones for my boys.

Mexican Food!

I took all three kids to the Mexican Supermarket. It was not the easiest task but it was fun. I really enjoy looking at all the different food items. This place also sells already prepared food. Here is few things we bought.


The middle child had to have the Fanta. It tasted like pineapples. Not bad.

The yogurt ice pops were $1. The are actually pretty good. I will purchase those again.

The kiddie jello snacks taste just like jello. The kids enjoyed those too. Not sure I will buy those again.

Gansito cookies are good. They taste like a chocolate cookie with cream and cherry jelly in the middle. I probably will not buy again.

Barrito Apple soda tasted like Apple juice. It was ok

Mole was real authentic mole. I guess I like "American" Mexican food better.

The candy was chile flavored with a mango center. Different. Not bad just different.


The pastries were pretty darn good

How cute!

I don't shop at kohls very often but I went with my mom and three kids Monday. My mom was looking for a swimsuit and was able to find one. You can read all about it on her blog


I saw this adorable shirt in the teen section and fell in love with. Luckily, so did my mom and she bought it for me. With a 30% discount she got it for around $10. Here we go with a pic of me again. Confidence Shawna confidence.

Like I promised I made the Korean curry. Not bad! Not bad at all and the hubby loved it. Pretty easy to make. I used two chicken breast and cubed it. 3 carrots chopped. 1 onion chopped and 2 potatoes chopped into cubes. Fry all that with some oil until cooked. Once cooked add 3 1/2 cups of water. Cook until veggies are soft. Then all you do is add the seasoning packet and mix. Put over rice. Yummy and easy. My kids did not eat it all but they never eat my dinners.

Saturday Day Date

I got to go on a little day date with my hubby. We went to eat at Hefner Grill which is on a lake. It kind of felt like a little mini vacation.


I am not a fan of taking pictures of myself but maybe in 50 years I will look back and think I look good. So, I am wearing a shirt from J Crew outlet . The skirt is from Marshalls of course. Michael Kors watch and shoes are from Target. Nail Polish is Gap Orange Sherbert. Great, now I want ice cream.


We started out with the best crab cakes I have ever had. They were topped with crab and lobster meat. They were amazing!


The fish tacos were really good too but look at those fries. Those fries were awesome! I will go back just to order a plate of fries. Why can't fries be healthy?
