Hating On Justin?

I always chime in when I hear one of my children say "I hate so-and-so".  This comment is usually aimed at a celebrity.  I usually start with 'You don't even know that person' or the 'Hate is a very strong word' speech.  The word 'hate' is interesting because an excuse can be made of "I was just kidding" and many accept that.  It can have the intention of over the top humor, but I take it at face value.  It's not a kind word.

This morning I hear my 10 y/o comment on a commercial for a Justin Bieber doll. "Ugh! This is the worst commercial ever.  I hate him!", she screamed.  Now, I've said enough's 'You-don't-even-know-him's' so I went another direction.  I said, 'OK, what if, while you were singing and dancing around the house you asked me to videotape you.  That tape goes up on YouTube and people really enjoy what you're doing.  People share the video with their friends who also enjoy what you're doing. You get a call asking you to sing and dance on your favorite t.v. show and you become famous.  You're doing something that makes you so happy and makes other people happy as well.  Now that's pretty much what happened to Justin Bieber so why in the world would you hate him?  Enough with this!'

She turns to her older sister, who's on the computer, and says "Look for the video"Justin Bieber Eats Poo".  It's funny".

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogram

My Questions Answered By Chef Pati Jinich - Video

Rob and I have been focusing on finding foods and spices that will help us take some weight off.  I've been slightly obsessed with staying on my exercise track (on week 8 now :->) and hope to get rid of this jiggly belly that has become wa-a-a-ay too comfortable on my body.  The older you get the harder it is to lose weight.  What I would say to my 40 year old self - 'See that pouch starting?  Do your crunches and planks now!  7 years from now it's going to get ugly !' I've found that spices cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and turmeric are noted to increase metabolism.  ( Yes please !)  After a good workout coconut water is more beneficial in regulating your electrolytes, and lower in calories, than sports drinks.  It also contains more potassium than other drinks which is an important component in helping to build muscle which, in turn, helps you burn more calories. And my most surprising discovery - eating avocados help burn belly fat! I&#
