Prepping for Camp

We are sending B off to sleep away camp soon. This means I am spending a ton of time labeling all of her clothes and things she is taking with her.

Today I am giving a mini hair bootcamp to teach her a few simple dos she can do at camp.

Pics to come :)

Hairdos I Did :)

One of my passions of late has been learning new hairdos to do. If only B would let me practice on her more often....

Below are a few dos she was willing to sit through.

First is the Lady Gaga hair bow. I used B's real life hair to make this bow. No extensions or other forms of fake hair were harmed in the making of this do.

Next up is the Spiral Braid. A lady followed B around the store for a while before she finally asked her ..."Who does your hair?" B just kind of looked at her for a second and said "Umm, my Mom." (We wondered if she thought Miss B had a stylist or something...strange.)

One more for now. This is the inside-out bun. I had sooooooo freaking much fun doing this one but it took me about 45 minutes to do it. So what do you think was it worth the time she had to sit or not?

Let me know what you think. I need a little feed back here to help me figure what I want to do with this blog.

I'm A Loser Baby.....

Yeah, I know I am like the BIGGEST putz in 36 least. I keep promising y'all some serious posting but Fail on the follow through. This time there are no promises just a fun little posting. Maybe I will keep it up....Maybe I won't. You will have to come back to make sure I stay on my game.

So I guess a little update is in order. Well here goes....

Most importantly does everyone know the Packers won the Superbowl????!!!!!

If not, that's okay. I will remind you. I have to remind myself every once in a while, just for fun. In case you didn't know, the Kally Family are Packer fans.
This started with Miss B who decided at age 7 football stats were much more important than secrets to write about in her little pink diary. We all have our special gear we wear for game days. My fave is 52 - Clay Matthews.

I have decided for game day swag I need a life-sized Cardboard Clay. If anyone can help me out on this I will be your friend for LIFE. - I can imagine some great pics around town with Cardboard Clay... next to the Golden Driller maybe...

or the Rose Garden...

In T-Town the possibilities are endless!

Oops! Sorry about the misdirection. I get a little super hyper focused when it comes to football.
•Real quick, other things I am into right now:
•Hanging out with the our besties aka the best-Es.
•Settlers of Catan or on fun nights Settlers of Cantina
•Doing hair!!! Bug me about it enough and I will post some pics of some cool hairdos to do.
I will even give a quick review of last year if you really want to know some of the crazies I went through.

I will leave you tonight with some pics of the way the Mr and his buds are chill-axing this evening.

Yeah, I know. Cigars. Don't worry the Mr knows a shower is a must. Can't muss up my clean sheet smell :)

Welcome Back From the Cold

Today was my first day of re-entrance to the land of the living. Yeah, that cold really took me down for the count. So what does one do while feeling like poo? I don't know about you but for me there was:

1 - Down 1 bottle of green Nyquil - (not all at once) That NASTEEEE Gak will kill almost anything.
2 - Go through 2 boxes of kleenex with aloe. - I have blown my nose so many times the skin around my nostrils is all gross, dried & flaky. (Real lovely.)
3 - Get 3 FULL days of rest. I slept most of Saturday, Sunday & Monday. (I kind of felt like Rip Van Winkle when I got to work this morning and realized so much had happened while I was sleeping.)
4 & 5 - Drink 4 - maybe 5 hot toddies. Enough said right?

And while one is sick, one must give up their beloved Bravo-lebrities for ridiculous amounts of online television. Let's say something like 2 entire seasons of Gossip Girl could be just what the doctor ordered. I swear, at the end of season 2, when Chuck told Blair he loved her, I felt 5 degrees of better. Don't judge me. ...I know you have your weakness as well - you can spill your guilty pleasures in my comments. I can't wait to hear what chases your colds & flu away.

Love to all.

Dear Anonymous,

Your comments are driving me crazy! I have yet to figure out if you are a RL person or just a bot BUT either way this must stop NOW. Everyone expects the random "Special Medicine for Men" comments or even a rude remark every blue moon but these nonsensical comments are maddening. Please start your own blog and leave mine alone ...because this blog is mine and for my still faithful readers/friends who check in on me.
- Kally

***For those who are wondering, yes I am still here and well. Many things have been going on. The worst was the unfortunate loss of my camera :( - I don't know what happened to the thing I have either
(a) lost it in my tiny apartment
(b) left it at the coffee shop we frequent after the farmers market
(c) left it at the Indian restaurant I love.

I have been reluctant to blog without the eye candy to go with my words. Sorry, I know, I suck.

Tonight I am sick with some yucky cold the Mr passed on to me. I am in bed nursing the most wonderful hot toddy. -Made by me! If it kills this cold I will gladly pass on the recipe to all in need. - Strike nursing, I just downed the rest....I think I just might need another. If it doesn't kill the cold at least it will make for an interesting evening. Groundhog Day on the squawk box, a hot toddy in hand, words for my bloggy friends & texting a friend who is also sick....what else does a girl need?
....Oh yeah, her health. Lets hope we are all feeling better soon.

Love to all!

Working My Way Back to You Babe

I have missed blogging so much. I am so sorry for abandoning all of you for those snippy (BUT freaking hilarious) Atlanta housewives & then for those plastic (BUT so out of this world train wreck funny) OC ladies... Oh yeah & the biggest most addictive of all time-sucks...Sorority Life. (I know it is a facebook app & I should know better but I couldn't help it. I am trying to wean myself off of it slowly.) Please don't forgive me yet though. Let me get a few posts under my belt again before you consider that. In the meantime please excuse the mess as I clean house on this blog. I have old things to clean up & new stuff to display. Go ahead and leave a comment or two and let me know you are still there :)

My Little....Gangster?

In case you were wondering Miss B has decided to donate her hair to Beautiful Lengths. We are thinking about getting her hair cut the first weekend of December. In the meantime she will be looking for a fab new style to sport.

I know this is super late to update you on but here is what B was for Halloween….

Did you guess Gangster? Well, that was what the costume packaging said BUT everyone that saw her thought she was something else. When someone would ask her what she was going to be she would say in her fast little voice… “I am supposed to be a gangster but what I really look like is a Pimp!!!!” When asked if she knew what a pimp was she would respond, “Nope, but I know I look like one!

***This wonderful pic was taken by my photog friend. Many Thanks to Kitmac Photography for giving me permission to post this awesome pic!!!***

Hebrew School

Have you ever seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding? You know how they send the kids to Greek School and they learn Greek? Well, B is old enough now that she is in Hebrew School. Same kind of thing except B is learning Hebrew and preparing for her Bat Mitzvah. We usually carpool with another family that lives a couple miles away from us. Well, one evening when they dropped B off it was the older sister who was driving. She told me that B was trying to con her into letting her sit shotgun. The Older Sis told me this was how the conversation went….

I can ride in the front.

Big Sis: B I don’t think so. You need to sit in the back with the other kids.

B: Really! I can sit up front. My Grandpa always lets me sit up front.

Big Sis: Well, your Grandpa has many more years experience driving than I do B.

B: Well, you have two hands to drive with and my Grandpa only has one!

*** I totally lost it at this point. Cracking up laughing because it is the truth. ***
****Although Big Sis had to give B that one, Miss B still rode in the back with the other kids. ****
