Weekend Recap

I always feel like the weekend goes by way too fast, especially since I started working full time!  So wanted to start doing a Monday Recap of our weekend to share our family with you and to hear what some of you have done this past weekend.   I know a lot of you were probably stuck inside this weekend due to snow, we even had some rain to end this weekend.   Tamales & Baseball! That was our weekend.   One of my favorite things as we go into spring is baseball.  I am a huge baseball fan.  While I do love the Angels and the Giants -  my favorite team each year is my son's team.  He's been playing baseball for the past 8 years.  There is no other way I would rather spend my weekend other than the ballpark watching these kids play their heart out - love it!

After baseball, we spent the rest of the weekend, I feel like eating! lol!  I feel so stuffed!  We decided to make tamales, so made the meat Saturday and on Sunday bought the masa and finished cooking them.   So good - nothing better than homemade tamales - yes, this white girl can cook - sometimes!

To be honest, my husband does most the cooking. I thank God he can cook, because I sure can't!  He made the chili from scratch, cook the meat and yes, even steamed the tamales.  :)  Oh - and they had the Color Run here in Vegas this weekend, which I totally missed!  So bummed!  But my husband had to work and my son had baseball so it all worked out.  But next time, I totally wanna do this with the family - looks like so much fun!!


I am very excited to share with you the trailer for FROZEN FEVER! The highly-anticipated follow-up short to the global phenomenon FROZEN can be seen exclusively in theaters with Disney’s new live-action CINDERELLA, starring Lily James and Academy Award-winner Cate Blanchett, on March 13th.

Have you ever had a antiperspirant mishap? That embarrassing moment when half way through the day you notice those white stain marks around your arm pits or that day when you are at an important event and get a smell of that not so nice body oder you thought you prevented that day. There is one time I remember.  I was on a date, after dinner.  I could smell body oder but just knew it couldn't have been me! I put on deodorant, as I did every morning after my shower.   I continued to smell, continued to wonder who that was.  I tried to be sneaky and smell my under arms without making it too obvious, but of course that's just not something you can do in public with out someone noticing what you are up to.   I excused myself to the restroom - I had to take a wiff and see if really it was me - it was!!!  Oh my gosh was I embarrassed and really wanted to get the date over with.  I did not want him to smell what I smelled - what a turn off that would have been. 

I'll be honest, before this campaign I have never used a spray on antiperspirant!  Never!  I have always resorted to the white stick deodorant.  I always use to think how wet they would be and that there's no way they could last throughout the day.  So I was ever so anxious to give this a try!  I am one to always try things at least once.   I made sure to pick a day where I didn't have anywhere to go. Where I wouldn't be around a bunch of people, just in case it happen not to last.  Also - a night when I know my husband was going to be too tired from work to get too close!  First day - seemed to work!  When I sprayed it on, it just about dried instantly - no dripping down my side as I expected.   Also - I did not have to reapply as I did using the white stick.  Dove is a brand I love and use daily, so that def did help when giving me some push to give this a try!  Very happy with it - not only did it last, I didn't even have to worry about those ugly nasty stains appearing on my clothes for everyone to see.  So if you are a committed white stick user with the same fears I had - trust me and give this a try!!  Get the superior protection you need and feel the cleaner difference in all of their new Dry Spray Antiperspirants from Degree Men, Degree Women, Dove, Dove Men+Care and Axe.
