hair update

Do you really want to know? I am proud to say that underneath this really white skin and blond hair, I am black. Not kidding. The Japanese straightening didn't work on my hair. Why? Because I have African American hair. Who would have thought? If only I could have moves like my chocolate sisters! My hair is 60% straight, already looks a lot better but it didn't do what we were paying the big bucks for. I am supposed to be able to walk out of the shower and not have to blow dry or flat iron my hair. How amazing is that? It was such a long process! I got my hair washed then had the treatment applied which took a while, let it set 15 minutes, washed it out, had my hair blown dry and then each piece was straightened with the flat iron. After it looked beautiful, she then applied a neutralizer and washed my hair again. We realized it didn't work after she washed it and I still had curls! Grr! So, I am going back next Thursday morning to get the most intense treatment done. The kind they do on my chocolate sisters hair. This white chocolate girl is one curly mess. My hair stylist couldn't believe the amount of hair I have. I'm not kidding when I say I have enough for 5 people. I am growing my hair out and will have it thinned out to be more manageable. One day when I am sick of it I will chop it off and give it to locks of love. That is my goal. I've never grown it out long enough for that before and I would so LOVE to be able to donate my hair for such a great cause. Can you imagine the wigs my hair will make?? I'm so excited. So..there you have it. I'm still partially fro bow....until next week! Here is a pic from today of my hair..


Stay tuned!

Goodie Girl Cookie Pop Tarts

Summer is in full swing and Kate and I have a super fun, easy and delicious breakfast or even dessert idea for you to make!  First things first, go find some Goodie Girl Birthday Cake and Magical Animal cookies. They’re gluten free and to die for.  You can make this recipe gluten free by replacing the All Purpose Flour with Gluten Free Flour. Or if you want to skip the homemade dough all together you can use pie crust in the refrigerated section at the grocery store! 
Here’s what I did..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!
