Courageous. Smart. Humanitarian. Talented. Beautiful. Of course I’m speaking of Angelina Jolie. The former Hollywood wild child is on her grown woman status. The 37 year old mother of 6 has revealed she underwent a double mastectomy in February. After genetic testing, she learned that she carries the BRCA1 gene thus having an estimated 87% risk of […]
As a mom and MBA student, Working Mother’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Moms of 2013 caught my eye. I was even more excited when I saw my imaginary BFF, Mariah Carey made the top 10. Way to go Bestie!!! Fellow Hollywood mommies, Beyonce’ and Giselle made the Top 10 as well. Working Mother […]
I am so not a makeup girl. When I have to doll up it somewhat resembles a 6 year old girl who got into mommy’s makeup. I’ve never bought foundation or eyeshadow. I’m a gloss and mascara kinda girl. Basically, I am cosmetically challenged. Help is here though. Celebrity makeup guru and Hot Mama of […]
I recently talked about how I withheld Mo from a weekend of soccer due to unacceptable grades. I got mixed feedback for doing this. Some parents thought I was being over the top for disciplining my 8 year old, while others said they understood. When I heard Patrick Peterson’s story, it made me smile. Former […]
When I came back from vacay I brought an extra ass a few extra pounds with me. It’s not my fault. How could I say no to endless macadamia nut dishes, fresh seafood, and pineapple everything?! In addition to that my body was drained and I had trouble adjusting from the time difference. To combat […]
I’ve never taken the boys away for a Spring Break trip. So, for our first rendezvous it was a unanimous vote to head to the beautiful beaches of Maui. (Thanks to a Scooby Doo Wiki Tiki episode Bronson was all in!) I couldn’t wait to get to the Fairmont Kea Lani for the festivities. Having […]
What do me, Danica Patrick, Juvenile, Elton John, and Sarah Jessica Parker have in common? Well, in addition to great hair and expensive taste in clothes, we all share the same birthday. You can see what celebrities were born on the same day as you here.
“Sunshine on My Shoulders” by John Denver could have been blasting in the delivery room while my mom was pushing me out. It was the #1 song on my birthday. This site lets you see the #1 song for any particular date: your birthday, anniversary, etc. On the day Morris was born, it was “Let it Burn” by Usher, and my MD was doing the tootsie roll to “Lollipop” by Lil Wayne as she pulled a breeched Bronson out.
If you want to know how old you are in dog years, your birth tree, or when you were concieved (TMI for me) then check out this site. It will give you a gazillion tidbits regarding the day you were born. I will sleep much bettr tonight knowing that the Mayan Calendar long count date of my birthday is 220.127.116.11.7 which is 12 baktun 18 katun 0 tun 12 uinal 7 ki.
And last but not least, I just might grab some free grub at Black Angus, Captain D’s, Daphne’s Greek Cafe, or Souplantation then hop on over to Baskin Robbins for a free 2.5 scoop of ice cream. This site shows you all kinds of freebies you can get in your neighborhood or online for your birthday. The free swag doesn’t stop there. You can also check out the freebies for your kids and your pet.
So, don’t be a birthday scrooge on your special day. These sites will hopefully make getting older (and wiser) just a little bit of fun.
Students at Plano Senior High in Texas are planning a day of no makeup. It’s called Operation Beautiful. I applaud the inspiration behind it, “The goal for this project is to promote inner beauty and to let girls know it’s not about what’s on the outside but about what’s on the inside, and that’s what makes […]
The 2013 Oscars were kinda a bust for me. The minute I heard Hot Mama Sofia Vergara was hospitalized prior to the show and wouldn’t be rocking the Red Carpet, I should have prepared myself. It all went downhill from there. The E! preshow was terrible. I hate how Hollywood worships a dress simply because […]
YouTube has discovered more stars than American Idol. One of my faves is 2 year old basketball shooting sensation Titus. Titus does upside down shots laying on a trampoline w/a pacifier in his mouth, around the corner buckets, and 7 footers. At the rate he’s going, he’ll give Mark Price and Rick Barry a run […]
