The Kid Leash

Today, I'd like to talk about something that most people think is silly.
The kid leash.
I'm sure a lot of you have made fun of this little product, but you know what? It has a purpose. A purpose that can save you from being kidnapped, and I should know because one of these bad boys saved me.

When I was 3 years old, my dad was stationed in Okinawa and my mom was traveling alone, with two kids, two large surfboards and luggage, and the usual two arms to meet him there. We were in LAX which can get pretty busy, and busy it was, so she put me on a kid leash since I was a walker and most likely to stray. We're walking along to our terminal and all of the sudden my mom feels a strong tug and turns to see a man holding me. He was straight up trying to kidnap me. She freaked and he ran and we spent the following hours with the police and missing our flight. I don't think he was ever caught.

If it weren't for that leash, who knows where I'd be today..
So you can be damn certain that if I'm ever in a situation where I'm alone, with multiple kids, a crowd and only my two eyes and arms.. I MIGHT BE THAT MOM WITH THE KID LEASH.

Box Car Racing

Yesterday we went box car racing for my brother-in-law's birthday and it was really fun and family friendly. I got to relax under a big tent outside and eat cupcakes while I had about 30 babysitters pass Rowan around trying to get in some cuddles while they can and D got to be a kid again. Afterwards we ran errands, hitting up the usuals- Babies R Us and Target. Then came home to leftover pizza and freshly washed sheets. Yep, Saturday was good to us.

Last Night

Last night kicked off the weekend so we got a little crazy and ordered pizza, had a mai tai and watched Chappelle's Show. 
Today D's getting off work early so that we can go to his brother's birthday shindig at the box car race tracks! Ima wear my new kicks and mayyyybe have an outfit post but it's possible that we'll skip that today depending on Ro's schedule between now and the party. We shall see!

Make-Up & A Video

Ok folks I'm not gonna lie.. I was scared to post this. I basically went back and forth all day trying to decide whether or not I should put it up because the last thing I need is a bunch of judgmental haters all up in my grill. BUT, I figured most of you come here on the reg and are really sweet so I'm gonna take a chance and put myself out there. PLUS, I was pretty much dared to post it by Jessica & she said that if I did she would post a video of her dancing so.. yea.. had to do it.
I've never made a video like this before and especially not a makeup tutorial but I thought it would be an easier way to answer all the emails I've been getting about how I do my makeup(& relatively quickly). So sit back and enjoy my attempt at something semi-cool.
(Please be nice.)
