My Valentine with my Valentine’s gift…


Originally uploaded by nehifamily

So the hubby got me exactly what I wanted. Jewlery? Nope, not me. He’s given jewelery before and I loved it, but I’m a practical person. A gift that makes my life easier is what rocks. So he spent today assembling my new BBQ!!! It’s a Triton Outdoor Gourmet grill with 3 gas burners and a side burner, a charcoal grill, and a side fire box…all with cast iron cooking grates.

I will be breaking this sucker in tomorrow! I’m so looking forward to a beautiful Spring and Summer of cooking out on this. BBQ chicken, country style pork ribs, brisket, grilled corn, grilled watermelon, fire roasting fresh garden veggies for canning in pasta sauce, roasted spiced apples….suddenly I feel like “Bubba” in Forest Gump….”shrimp stew…deep fried shrimp…shrimp pasta…” LMAO

Got my hair cut!

First decent hair cut I’ve had since I’ve been in this area! Classy Cuts in Copperas Cove, TX.

Anyhow, I’ve also been using Wen cleansing conditioner. Yeah, I bought into it after seeing a few infomercials and then a presentation on QVC. I told myself it was because my daughters have dry hair and so it would be a good thing to try. Crazy expensive but QVC had it on “easy pay”. So getting 3 months worth and actually getting to break it up into as many payments made it doable.

First day I was surprised our hair wasn’t greasy.

2 weeks later I can say all of our hair is softer and more manageable. My daughters all have long hair to mid back. The twins’ hair is dry and brittle and they usually wake up looking like birds are nesting in it. Not anymore. It still gets tangles but they brush right out without leaving kinks. My daughter, M, has uber thick oily hair. Nope, not oily anymore. Just manageable. Ok so me….I’ve colored my hair every 6 weeks since I was around 13 and I’m 34 now. LOL My thick hair seemed to be thining and was crunchy and fried. It’s softer and full of volume without too many fly aways. BUT the big thing is the shower drain. Already 1/4 of the hair as what was there each shower 2 weeks ago!

So I thought a cut was in order to trim away as much of the damaged hair as I could.

I’m still “trying” the Wen, but so far I think I’m very pleased.
