FIFA watch out … Charlie B is on the way!
Forget Peter Piper and those stupid pickled peppers, Vanessa Barnett just pick the perfect avocado. Boom!
Why is this a big deal? Well, if you have to ask this question then either you don’t eat avocado (WTH?!?) or you’re some weird alien who picks the perfect avocado every time (again, WTH?!?). But, if you’re like the rest of the non-perfect picking people of the world, then you’ve run into your fair share of too ripe, not ripe enough, rotten avocados. Unfortunately, and for some unknown (or maybe just unknown to me) reason, getting it just right in the avocado department is quite a daunting task. Well, because I’ve done it once, I am now an expert and thus I must teach everyone I know my vast and expansive knowledge of all things “perfect avocado”.
I’m not quite sure who’s a bigger “Home” fan, me or little Miss Charlie B!! Either way, Oh is the man and we got to spend the day with him 🙂
Before I even had a baby, I knew Bugaboo was THEE stroller for the elite sector of chic mamas. They’ve always blended style with function seamlessly and it was easy to see why it was in such high demand … unless you were looking for a jogger. Those chic mamas on the move had to go elsewhere when looking for a durable stroller that they could take on a run, that is, until now. Bugaboo has heard your cries, you fit and fabulous mother, and they have delivered the Bugaboo Runner!
Not sure if you know, but it gets hot in LA. Like really, really hot. So on days where it feels like we’re living on the sun, a cool, refreshing salad is just what the doctor ordered.
I spotted this Watermelon salad on my friend Danica’s Instagram page (check her out @TheMemoirsOfAMommy). I took her recipe and added my own twist to come up with this light and tasty, 5 ingredient salad.
This is grilled cheese to the max!
Quick, easy, tasty? Check, check, check!
Seriously, all you need is just a few fresh ingredients and you’ll have an incredibly delicious dish on your hands. I found this recipe on good ‘ol Pinterest, but of course, I tweaked it a bit (the original recipe called for mayonnaise but I omitted it).
BET Weekend was a blast, but no one, and I mean no one, had more fun than the Mischievous Minions. They popped up everywhere!
This past weekend, BET shut LA down with several activities leading up to there big awards show on Sunday. But, everywhere I went the Minions made their way there, too. It seems as though those little guys are determined to find as much mischief as possible before their big film hits theaters July 10th.
Thank God, Belly Bandit got the corset game correct!
I’ve been rocking my Belly Bandit “Mother Tucker” Corset for over a week now and let me tell you, my waist is snatched, my body is shaped like a Coke bottle and I still feel comfortable all day long. I never thought all of that was possible, all at once.
Charlie B loves her daddy so, so much (and I do too ;-), which means when Father’s Day rolls around we try really hard to get him a great gift. I don’t know why, but the task seems almost impossible. He’s not hard to shop for, but it just feels like there aren’t a lot of great gifts for Father’s Day. That is until now. After countless hours of searching (you’re welcome), I’ve finally complied a list of items I deem Daddy Day approved! And, because I love you (and because Amazon is awesome), I’ve include links to where you can buy everything (again, you’re welcome, lol).
Yay, Yay, Yay, Charlie B turned two on Sunday!
One of her favorite movies is Despicable Me, so to celebrate her bday I planned a Minion themed party. I got a few ideas from Pinterest and decided to recreate them … and if I do say so my self, I NAILED IT!!
