Xylah has her vampire teeth coming in right now and I can't remember what they're called for the life of me. So, last night we checked out X's teeth to see if the top ones had come through yet and noticed that one of them on top had but so had the two on the bottom! We're always so busy checking on the top ones that we miss the bottoms coming in. I'm not mad though, there's only one left then we're free until the last molars come in. I heard these 4 that are coming in now are the most painful for them and the biggest pain in the butt. She's doing well with it if you ask me!
Today was our court date for the dogs. :( Almost $1500 this is going to end up costing... between court fines and fees, lawyer fees, damages, and insurance. Apparently there was damage to the cart the horse was pulling and that will cost about $300 to fix. The horse is fine, thank god! Karma's fine for hopping the fence was $100 and the pit bulls cost $…

First let me start off by telling you a little about my hair. Before I was diagnosed with Hashimoto Thyroiditis (Hypothyroid), my hair was very healthy and I took pride in it. I never blow-dried my hair, I deep conditioned it on a regular basis, and always switched up my conditioner. A few months before I was diagnosed, my hair started to feel brittle and dry, it started breaking, and eventually it started falling out by the hand fulls. I tried everything to get my hair back to normal, and nothing worked. Not even the thyroid medicine helped! About 2 1/2 years ago I found out I was pregnant with my now 17 month old child. I took prenatal vitamins until she was about 1 month old. The prenatal vitamins did wonders for my hair, but shortly after stopping them my hair started it's drama all over again. Everyone told me that it was normal after pregnancy, but it's been almost 1 1/2 years already. Once again, I went back to trying every thing under the sun to obtain healthy hair an…
Woohoo! I got my Private Selection Bzzkit last week for being a bzzagent and I just couldn't wait to break everything open! We tried the chips already and the burger meat so we'll have to buy more before our party. Review will follow after once everything has been tasted.
So today was an awesome day! It started out kinda poopy because of a migraine but once it was gone, the day got started. Made a great dinner out on the grill with cauliflower and shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches. I broke open my bottle of McCormick Grill Mates Brown Sugar Bourbon early for the shredded chicken and it was delicious! Guess I better go buy another bottle before the party. :/ The only issue with dinner was the pretzel burger buns I bought a couple days ago. They looked so good but once we got them out and put our sandwiches together we realized there was mold all over the buns. Are you kidding me? We only had them a couple days! We bought them from Whole Foods in Ann Arbor and I was looking forward to testing them out. What a waste of $4.00! I emailed the company that makes them (Pretzilla) know how disappointed we were.
So anyway, after dinner we loaded up Xylah, Guyol (Ed's nephew), and Cisco and headed for the park. It was the first time Cisco had been out on a lea…
Ok, so I've been trying to get this blog up and running but it's so annoyingly difficult. I can't seem to find anything under the settings to help me figure this out. I'm starting to think that a blog was a bad idea. It gives me a headache. Once I figure it out, maybe it will be fun. If anyone has any tips, feel free to help a girl out!
Today my grandparents are visiting so you won't see much of me on facebook. We have been trying to get this house super clean so we can start making it more of a home. Moving really stinks but I guess with time, it will all come together.
While I was cleaning a question came to mind. I have this really weird tendency to peek into other peoples showers when I have to use the facilities. I'm not sure why, maybe a habit, curiousity, or some other off the wall reason. My question for you is, do you peek at something in paticular at every house you visit? I was thinking this because if someone peeked into my shower right now, they may be disgusted. Ed is black when he comes home from work and every time he takes a shower, all that black clings to the sides of the tub. It's so gross!
Hello all! This is my first experience blogging so bare with me. I will do my best to keep up to date on all things Xylah and any cool freebies I find. I'm pretty good and ranting and raving so I'm sure you'll see some of that, as well. Hope you enjoy!
