This is a Public Service Announcement...

These, are your kids (well, they're mine...but for fun, let's just pretend, 'kay?)...

These are your kids on drugs.

Any questions?


Well, lemme tellya something anyway...Dramamine. It's your best travel companion.

Let that be a lesson learned.

You're welcome.

Back to regular programming now...


  1. Love me some Dramamine. Thought about giving it to our kids on the trip we just took, but I couldn't justify it since they don't normally get car sick. It makes me want to do the sleepies.

  2. Duly noted. Last year when my daughter was 14 months old, we did a 22 hour trip. While I was 5 months pregnant. Worst 22 hours of my life. She got car sick and the ped suggested I try Benadryl. I was excited that it would make her sleep but it had the opposite effect. She didn't nap the entire car trip.

  3. Oh, Dramamine is my go to drug. Knocks me right out. Benadryl just doesn't do it for me - I get wired and have creepy nightmares when I do sleep. But, Benadryl does work on my dogs. LOL!

  4. Yes, benedryll has the opposite affect, I can't believe your ped told you it would work that way.

    I love sleeping children in the car it's awesome! I only have one and she falls asleep just like me int he car no drugs required.

  5. Oh I 100% agree. I have one child that gets very car sick - like 30 minutes into the trip sick. Across town travel not fun! Anyway - it's wonderful!

  6. I'm going to be ALL over the dramamine in about two weeks. Sleep is a good thing on a ten to twelve hour drive. Does it really keep you from getting carsick, too? I've never tried it.

  7. Hahaha! My sister used to get carsick, so she got Dramamine every time we traveled. I was really happy she did because she also used to get grouchy when she had to sit still for longer than an hour. D'oh! I didn't just type that, did I?

    My kids don't get carsick, thank goodness. And we rarely travel for longer than an hour and a half, whew!

  8. You have such a fun personality. You make me laugh...and I enjoy your posts.

    Your kids are adorable and so are you.

    Have a blessed day!

  9. Oh, I'll have to remember that!!! 16 hrs to my parents house is quite miserable with puking kids!

  10. omg i am laughing so hard!!! you are sooo funny. i will be going on a 7 hour trip and will have to remember that... do u need justification to give it to them? or is a quiet car ride the answer? lol

  11. I have never heard of Dramamine (notice that spells drama mine? so dish it out if you don't want drama?? LOL) but I have a friend that is a psychologist and she said to give my kids GRAPE Benadryl to help them calm down. Great for road trips but she told me that because my oldest would go CRAZY if she got red food coloring. No other flavors would work, so maybe that's what happened with those that got the opposite effect??

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out.
