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!

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  Ice Coffee creamer of your choice Heavy 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!  Tag me on Instagram at

Family Room DIY makeover

Remember that one time my husband bought a tv wall mount and then I decided we needed a new tv stand? And then it made me realize our dark furniture would look way better if I lightened it up? And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it.  All because we put the tv on the wall!  Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover.  Before .  I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown.  I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint.  Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows.  Then it was onto the fireplace.  Before   Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace.  We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures.  And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
