A Note...

To the evil teenage girl inside me...

Dear Evil Teenage Girl Inside Me:

Get lost.

I'm not sure who invited you and your horrible skin issues, but I'm not appreciating it AT ALL. Especially now that my bladder has decided to age.

I suppose I could try to see the humor in the fact that I have the skin of a 14 year old and the bladder of an 80 year old...but I don't.

No humor seen in that WHAT. SO. EVER.

It would be best for both of us, if you would just pack your bags and hightail it back to the 90's and leave me with the un-pimply skin a 30 something mother of 5 deserves. And please, take the zits with you.

They clash with my crow's feet and laugh lines.

All my best (now get lost),


  1. Haha! I can SOOO relate to that! My face has gotten worse, instead of better as I age. What gives? I have prescriptions, they just leave my skin chemically burnt and peeling. I think that's worse. Sigh... So I am right there with you. Teenager, leave me alone!

    Please feel free to stop by: Trailing After God

  2. I feel your pain. My horrible skin makes me want to peel my face off and get a new one. I thought this crap was supposed to stop once you hit your 20's?!

  3. ok, i thought i was the only 30 something mom with pimples. glad i'm not alone

  4. Yes, I can relate to this post. I wish my evil teenage girl got lost too. It better get lost soon though because I am getting sick of it. You're not alone my dear.

  5. Ugh me too! I got through these phases where I never know what I'm going to find when I first look in the mirror in the morning. The worst, though, is when I've been doing nothing but sitting at my desk for hours and I look in the mirror and think "I KNOW that wasn't there this morning...". Yuck!

  6. Mama M. I have to say that I ADORE you :) I know your pain and frustration and every day I get on and read your posts and suddenly I feel giggly and young again :) (no...not becuase you have the skin of a 14 year old haha). So thanks <3

  7. I totally know where you are coming from. That "time of the month" is scary. Pimples all over the place, in places you wouldn't think they could pop up! UGH. Seriously, I'm so done with the 13 year old skin problems too!

    However, I did start using the Clinique 3-step cleansing products, and I have noticed a huge difference! It's not cheap, but I'll pay whatever it takes to lessen zits on this 33 year old face!

  8. OMG!! I'm SOOOO glad I'm not the only 30-something mom with teenage skin and an 80 year olds bladder!!

  9. Okay, I started to post about the same thing-skin problems. Just broke down and went back to the dermatologist yesterday for this weird itchy, scaly dry patch around my mouth. One dermatologist told me a year ago that I may be allergic to cinnamon so I cut it out-no cinnamon gum or toothpaste even, but I'm still plagued...and I've moved on to be a 40-something mom! What a drag. I hope whatever you try next helps. I just started low-dose antibiotics (which I abhor) plus two facial lotions/ointments. We'll see. Let us know if you find something that works well.

  10. I never had skin issues when I was growing up. I would get maybe one or two pimples once a month. When I hit 27ish, BAM! There they were! I use ProActiv now to keep them at bay. What gives? LoL

  11. Now following. Looking forward to participating in 5Q friday tomorrow.

  12. I SOOOOOOOOOO feel your pain!!!!!! I've been battling acne for years and years and years and it irritates me that I am 30 and still dealing with it!
    I try my latest; less is more!
    I bought a really gentle foaming cleanser called "Purpose" and I am using cold water to rinse to close my pores. I use Cetaphil lotion before putting my make up on...we shall see! Hope it works! Cause the scrubbing, and picking and sloughing and masking isn't working either ;)

  13. oh gosh I thought I'm the only one! I'm 30 years old and i still have acne! It is because I have PCOS, you know hormonal imbalance. I tried everything but no effect. Anyone here that has PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) also? Anyway here is my entry this week.

  14. Seriously, what is up with the adult acne? I went to the doctor, motioned to my face, and said "fix it". So not fair.

  15. I feel your pain! I mean seriously what is the deal with these bodies. I didn't think it was suppose to be like this. So I second your hit the road!

  16. I have this exact conversation with my face each day and bladder bwahahahaha!

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!

Crock-Pot Fajitas

Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
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. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
