  1. I'm on vacation
  2. kids are sick
  3. house is messy
  4. *I'M* sick now
  5. youngest won't stop playing drums!
  6. have to get the car fixed and new tires put on!

I am not having fun!!! I started having major swelling in my sinuses last night. Not really like a stuffy nose but weird swelling! It's starting to travel into my throat and I'm SO not cool with this!!! Hubs is on vacation and we had plans! PLANS, I TELL YOU! We were going to hit the zoo and do a little driving and have fun! FUN, I SAY! But now??? NOW??? Poop.

I just want to go get snuggly in my bed with my super-sized sinus-soothing face mask on (which I'll have in my shop at a later date. I LOVE IT).

Poopies. Poop, poop, poopies!

Taking a break

I have a couple of sick little kids and I'll be devoting all of my time to cuddling them and dosing out their cough medicine so I doubt I'll get anything made this week. The hubs is on vacation and we were supposed to get out of town or do SOMETHING but I don't know now. I don't want to be too far away from their doctor.

Oh and GudonyaToo has that conditioner for sale now! I ordered my bottle tonight! I LOVE IT. :D

K, I'm tired and I have a bit of a cough sneaking up on me. Ugh. I hope I don't get sick, but if I have to, I just pray I don't get sick until after they're well. Having the crud along with them is miserable. :(

So, ya know that shampoo???

Go order it NOW. Seriously! GO! It's amazing! There's something truly purifying about rubbing a gritty pile of Tahitian Vanilla Salty Dawg Creme Shampoo in your hair! The grit is sea salt and it dissolves, of course, but that initial gritty scrubbing action is AWESOME! My hair was so clean. I mean, this reminds me of when I first tried the tooth chips and it was the first time I was feeling real, true clean! This is how REAL clean hair feels! This is how hair reacts to kindness! It recoils in horror to the chemicals and harsh detergents that are in commercial shampoos! Did you know that the same detergent that goes into shampoo is also the detergent they put in laundry detergent? Would you wash your hair with Tide? Yeah, me either! I lathered up my hair twice just to experience that initial gritty application again. There is NO weird feeling to you hair once you rinse it out either! It's perfectly normal feeling!

I must confess something though... Tina, from GudonyaToo included a VERY generous sample of conditioner she's obviously been working on. There's so much I want to say about it! First, it's the first conditioner in the history of conditioners that didn't make my hair oily all day. It rinsed clean away and I was left with such beautiful, shiny hair! I'm in LOOOOVE! I told my Mom about it and I said, "Mom, it looks like I did my hair today, but I didn't!" Seriously, it had volume and shine which is something that literally NEVER happens to my hair. EVER. I spent my youth buying ridiculous salon shampoos and conditioners trying to find that magic combo that would help my hair! I gave up long ago but now I think I finally found it!

Of course, I then put my ridiculously long hair in a rubber band and ruined all volume that I had going. I need a haircut in a very bad way so I don't have to rely on rubber bands as much.

By the way, I adore the Tahitian Vanilla scent so much that I ordered some of Tina's deodorant in the same scent so my pits can match my hair! Don't you hate it when you love your shampoo scent AND your deodorant scent but when mixed, it smells like something rotting in the kitchen? Just me?

Other than my glowing shampoo report, I ate at Red Lobster today. It was vile and greasy and my tummy hurts wicked bad. Yeah, I said wicked bad. What of it?

I'm so extremely excited!!!

I FINALLY got to order some of this stuff from Gudonyatoo!!!

I can't wait to try it out and I LOVE pretty much everything she makes. So watch for my review on it! I'm sure it will be GLOWING and wonderful! I've got a good feeling about this, I tell you!

I have a couple of new items in my shop. A cute soap saver and a size 12 month tee with just about the most adorable little cowboy I've ever seen on it! It's fantabulous!

I'm bummed because the pictures didn't turn out very well. I think I just suck at taking pics. LOL But anyhoo, he's a cute little guy and I hope he finds a home soon!

What I worked on today..

I started out with an idea for a little onesie dress. I had the fabric that I wanted to use so I set out to make it. I measured and trimmed up the uneven edges and started to sew. I got the skirt finished and I sat there looking around for the rest of my fabric that I needed to add the rest. Blerg. I forgot to reserve any. I used it all so now I have one very plain but pretty onesie dress.

The pictures are pretty bad and I'm annoyed with them because the dress IS really pretty!

This soap was AAAAMAZING! I kid you not! It had such a beautiful scent that lasted all day long! I don't think she's making any more as this was an accidental batch, I believe, but man, I hope she has this scent in another soap! All I have left is a tiny nub that I wash my hands with and I nearly cried when it got too small to lather up my washy poof thing! BUT, in its prime, this soap was SO foamy and soft and wonderful! I don't think it would be an exaggeration to say that my water bill was just a little higher when I had this soap. I just wanted to stand in the shower and sniff the bubbles! The bar was REALLY large, too, compared to other soaps I've seen out there. I was really surprised! "Generously sized" isn't an accurate description. Honkin'? Yeah, that would be the size! If this lovely bar of soap was an accident, then I can't WAIT to try out more from Morgan Street!

And that, my dear friends, is that!
