You Can Never Have Too Many Lippies

or can you?

Would it change your answer if I told you this is just *part* of my collection?

I'm thinking of working my way through the collection by wearing a different lippie each day. In the process, I'd weed it out (because I have this insane habit of keeping things that don't work for me, just in case I might need them later), and post a review of what I wear each day.

What do you think?

I Never Thought I'd See This

Those of you who know where we live- can you believe what we saw on 36th Street yesterday?

This guy skiing down the road...... isn't that the craziest thing you've ever seen?????

Are You Rue-la-la-ing?

I've heard so much about Yummie Tummie and their midriff-smoothing tanks.... and today they have a boutique with half-price items on Rue La La - where Members get their most wanted designers at private sale prices. And if you sign up by December 24, they'll start you and I both off with a $10 Credit!

Yummie Tummie says their tanks contain secret minimizing panel shapes entire waistline from bust to hips, visibly taking off inches.


The Politician is going to kill me for having this pic.

Look at that face!

His class was playing a game where they passed the present to the next person every time the teacher read the word "the" and he had his heart set on getting the gift he brought! So when he had to pass it on.... he was so disappointed!

Right after this pic, we stepped out in the hall for an attitude adjustment and a good time was had by all. He ended up with a Skippy John Jones book and he loves it.

Product Rave: John Frieda Root Awakening Collection

Last May I posted about the new John Frieda Root Awakening collection that BzzAgent introduced me to and how much I was loving the Nourishing Moisture shampoo and conditioner.

It's now December and I am still using and loving the products and have re-purchased them a number of times! In addition to the Nourishing Moisture shampoo and conditioner, I also using the Health Boosting Detangling Spray on both my daughter and myself and absolutely love it.

If you are looking for some fabulous, reasonably-priced hair products (around $5 at Target) to try, I cannot recommend this enough. I did try one of the other formulas of this product line and did not care for them at all- so I suggest you stick with the Nourishing Moisture formula.

Making My Way Through My Millions of Mascaras

I picked this up locally for retail price in Blackest Black.

First, it was sort of greyish. And I just did not like the ball applicator- I ended up with large clumps everywhere and had to go back with an eyelash comb and separate my lashes after using this mascara. I never have to do that!

I have to admit this ended up in the trash- I just couldn't get a good result from it and did not like it at all.

Have you tried it? Did you like it?

Makeup Rave: Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15

Just wanted to give a shout-out and a rave for my new foundation find- Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15.

I purchased mine for $24.50 at my local Dillard's during a GWP (of course!).

I was noticing that the mineral powder foundation I'd been using was settling in my fine lines and making me look a bit older than I liked. I realized that during the colder, dryer weather, I need a foundation that will give me natural-looking coverage, yet still cover some of the skin inperfections I am seeing as I age (almost 36 y'all!).

After hearing all of my requirements, the Clinique counter recommended Even Better in the shade Cream Whip for me and it's been a great match. I apply it with a damp foundation brush and I absolutely love it. Afterwards, I dust on some mineral finishing powder and I'm shine-free all day. I've been using this product for a few months and have yet to experience a break-out.

This is why I love the internet

I am sure you have heard me go on and on about Curious George and how much I've always loved him. I even did P's nursery in CG back in 2003, even before the new movie came out and the PBS show started and he became such a big deal again

Of course I broke down the door to Target to get George's new movie, A Very Monkey Christmas when it came out this year. We have watched it over and over and it's absolutely adorable and both kids love it.

Small problem, though. P started singing songs from the movie, but he was singing them all wrong and it was driving me batty! I tried to decipher the words myself, but was having a rough time and feeling like we were "kissing this guy."

George and I are friends on Facebook, so I left him a little note on his wall and asked for some lyrics. And lo and behold, George posted some lyrics for me (and so far 42 people like it!). And maybe the Man with the Yellow Hat did it, but hey, I've got my lyrics!

Note on Fridge at Work

Gossip Catch-Up

I've been a little out of the loop, but I just read that Jessica Simpson and Billy Corgan from the Smashing Pumpkins are a couple? What?

And also MTV has a new reality show called Jersey Shore about some guidos and guidoettes that is all the rage?

Is the world coming to an end?

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

Dear Target,


You've been teasing me for weeks with that empty spot on the shelf with a label on there, all ready for the product to go there.

And as much as I'm in Target, I was sure I'd see it. But no..... I swear, you haven't put any out yet.

Please, I am craving it so bad! (And no, the 2 liter bottle just won't do, I don't like 2 liter bottles of pop, I'm weird like that.)

I Just Bought Myself a Birthday Present

That's OK, isn't it?

Yesterday I gave my friend Kristie a hug when I saw her and didn't want to let go. She had on this fabulous jacket that felt like WC's lovie and I just wanted to rub on her arm. So silky.

It was The North Face Osito jacket and I actually picked one up for myself yesterday in black at a local store for 10% of off the $99 price. Add in tax, and I got very close to $100.

The hubs was all for it, glad to have a present taken care of, but got on the computer and found it at Backcountry for $78.99 with $.01 next day shipping! And since there's no tax, and ebates offers 4% back for Backcountry, that's a hell of a deal! I'm a little embarrassed that he showed me up at what I do best (deal hunting) but I'm also glad to save $2o.

Happy Thanksgiving 2009!

Off to eat some ham and peanut butter pie!
Later today I'll be taking advantage of the deals at CVS explained at Something for Nothing. (Of course!)

The Case of the Missing Keys

We did some family pics on Sunday morning and of course there was drama.

We went to several different locations around campus, and at one point as a distraction, I gave my keys to P to carry and my cell phone to WC to carry.

About mid-way through, I noticed that The Politician wasn't carrying my keys anymore.

He didn't know where they were, and there's a really long story involving a building door that was propped open, but no longer was, and a very long trip around campus for the hubs to look for the keys.

He came back empty-handed. I then noticed that WC's nose needed to be wiped, so I pulled out a wad of kleenex from my jean jacket pocket. Then I noticed there was something else in there......

Yup, the keys.

Giveaway at Manicure Mommas!

Smoochiefrog is running an awesome giveaway at Manicure Mommas! Go check it out!


We have family pictures scheduled for tomorrow morning, with a goal of getting a pic to use for our Christmas cards.

And that's not a new eye makeup look I am trying out.

That's poor P's eye. On Sunday he and his buddy M were horsing around and P got kicked in the eye (accidentally). It is looking so much better each day, and I am really hoping that you can't see it in the pictures tomorrow.....

Off to find a matching bow for WC's dress before I pick up the kids. Tonight we are celebrating our 10th anniversary, which some Sasha Says readers may recall actually took place in mid-August. How sad it is this is our first chance to reschedule after I started feeling better?

Dear Martha Stewart,

The other day I picked up a package of Dove Peppermint Bark Dark Chocolate Promises, and they are heavenly.

But your "tips" written on the inside of each wrapper are spoiling my enjoyment of the chocolate. Yesterday you suggested I "Elevate a store-bought wreath with your own trimmings".

Damn you, Martha. First of all, I'm not even sure where my store-bought wreath is, but hopefully I'll find it soon. But you want to me to "elevate" it? I don't "elevate". Things are displayed "as-is" at the Sasha house. Plus I don't have any "trimmings" and most likely won't be purchasing any either.

You also told my son to "Dress packages in candy stripes for a sweet presentation". Martha, re-using a Christmas-themed sack is about as good as it gets for us.

And to top it off, you told WC to "Dip peppermint sticks in white chocolate and nonpareils". Why don't you come over for that one and help clean up? Sounds messy to me.....

Dear Santa,

In fact, Santa, I even have a 25% off coupon you could use as long as you purchase these by Sunday the 22nd. I'll be sure and leave the coupon and a picture of these earrings on the counter tonight so you can find it if you need it.

Curious George Live!

The Sasha family has a fabulous time last night at Curious George Live with our friends and their so-cute twins. Note that WC and I are both sportin' CG gear. Well, you can't see mine, but he's there on my jacket!

Here- I think you can see it a little better. BTW, P (age 6) took this pic and I think he did a great job! No heads cut off, and bonus: we're in focus!

G didn't feel like being in the pic right at that moment, so that's his head.

If you have the chance to see the show, by all means, do it. The kids loved it! It actually lasted a little longer that I thought it would, but the kids made it with no problems. The show started at 7 and there was a 15 minute intermission at 7:45 and the show was over about 8:40.

WC did turn to me right after the show started and ask "Now, when does Lightning McQueen come out?"

Too funny!

Pineapple Neiman Marcus Bars

Pineapple Neiman Marcus Bars

You know my slight obsession with what I call Neiman Marcus Bars? It's gone from bad to worse.

When Slim provided me with a list of variations on the recipe, each yummier than the next, I knew I was a goner. I knew I'd go through them one by one. Of course, my coworkers are pretty excited, but SIODI isn't going so well..... The Peanut Butter Chocolate version was to-die-for and the one I made this week was pretty damn good as well.

For the pineapple version, I used a Pineapple Supreme cake mix, and added a drained 20 oz can of crushed pineapple to the topping along with an extra egg.

Anyway, here's what you need:

  • 1 box Pineapple Supreme cake mix
  • 1 stick butter (I use Parkay)
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 oz block of cream cheese (I use Philly 1/3 less fat)
  • 1 box powdered sugar (I think it's 16 oz- but it's the box, not the bag)
  • 20 oz can of crushed pineapple, drained
  • glass pan (this is very important- must be a glass pan)

Combine: 1 egg beaten, 1 stick melted butter, and cake mix. Pat stiff dough in 9X13 pan that has been sprayed w/ Pam.

Combine: cream cheese, 3 eggs, and entire box of powdered sugar. Stir in drained pineapple. Pour this over dough.

Bake at 350 degrees 30-40 minutes, until top is golden brown. I let them cool and then store them in the fridge.

Is It Already Time For Christmas Candy?????

One of my favorite candy blogs (yes, there's a blog for everything) is Candy Blog and today they reviewed Dove Peppermint Bark Dark Chocolate Promises and I am tying myself to this chair so I don't run out right now and get some. How good do these look?

Has anyone tried them? Candy Blog says they are worth it, even better than an Andes Mint!

It's Beginning to Smell a Lot Like Fall

Febreze, oh how I love thee. I love that you make inexpensive candles that rival Yankee. I've been loving their limited edition candles since I discovered the Winds and Springtime variety in the spring.

Right now I am enjoying the Pumpkin Harvest & Fall scent. (Note: Dear Febreze, there's no need to remove past season's scents from your website if they are still in store and still in season. It seems silly to me that you removed your Fall 2009 scents when you introduced your Christmas 2009 scents....)

Moving on.... right now these are $5 at Target and you can use a $2 off coupon from the most recent P&G coupon insert, making these $3, which is a FABULOUS deal.

I also picked up Cranberries &Frost scent, which I haven't burned yet, but it smells equally yummy. Same price, same coupon, hell of a deal!

GDA: Disney Store 2 piece PJs for $5!

The Disney Store has their 2 piece long sleeved PJs for $5 right now! I was able to find two styles in size 6, which is what I need for P.

Don't forget to go thru ebates for 5% back!

Once you get to the Disney site, click on Shop by Category on the left side, then choose Deal of the Day. For some reason, that's the only way to get the $5 PJs. Several styles for girls and boys.

Happy Shopping!

These Boots Are Made For Walking

We're doing family pictures in a few weeks, and I've been keeping an eye out for some boots to go with a brown corduroy dress I picked up for WC to wear. I found the above boots at Target and they are precious! She loved them so much she wanted to wear them to church today and I think they looked so cute with her denim dress.

I had a wonderful day with no obligations after church, so I organized the laundry room (stuffed more stuff in the cabinets in there so it would be out of sight). I found some new crayons the kids can use, a Coach purse hidden under some stuff, about 5 other things I'd been looking for recently, and of course, some Halloween candy.

All in all, a great day and I'm super-sad to see the weekend come to an end. Manic Monday, here we come!

I am dying laughing over P's K school pic.

How hilarious is his "Cheese!" face?

I'm so proud of myself- the pics came home Thursday and I've already cut them apart and pasted a wallet in his School Years Book.

I don't promise to keep up this being-on-top-of-things business, but I've got a spurt of energy and am anxious to see what I can get done while it lasts.

If I Were Still Living in the Chi O House

I would totally have this bedding.

Well, probably not, because I never had any money back then and rocked the Walmart bedding, but still, I'd want this bedding.

Hoot hoot!

I Am Wondering

Pottery Barn Kids Snowman Bedding Collection

Are there people out there with enough disposable income that they are buying special bedding just for the holidays?

Who are these people?

What the hell are they thinking?????

Are You?

Are you using twitter?

Here's my two kiddos ready to go gather some candy. I am so proud that P found a costume he was excited to wear- if you've been a Sasha Says reader for any length of time, you probably remember he has an aversion to all things dress-up. But he loved this policeman costume and was so pumped to wear it.

Hope you had a Happy Halloween as well!

Stop Aging Me!

The Wild Child wore me out last week on our family vacay at Silver Dollar City.

She ran from person to person, talking them up and finding out what they were up to.

At one point, she ran up to the broom shop and knocked on the door. A little old man opened the door and said, "Well, hello there, little lady."

WC asked "What's your name?" and he replied "Stan".

Then she said...... wait for it.....

"I'm The Wild Child (really, she said her name) and this is my grandma, Shasha."

What's For Dinner?

Upside Down Taco Cornbread Pizza

Have you ever made Taco Cornbread Pizza? We absolutely love it around here and I've blogged about it before. Taco meat and cornbread are just yummy together.

Since I'm such an inventive chef, I had a grand idea to reverse the layers and do it in an 8X8 pan and we absolutely love it that way too.

Here's the modified the recipe:

What you'll need:

  • 1 pkg. (8.5 oz.) corn muffin mix (I ONLY use Jiffy! 44 cents!)

  • 1 egg

  • skim milk

  • 1 lb. ground beef

  • 1 pkg. taco seasoning mix (I typically get the low sodium McCormick)

  • shredded cheese

Cook meat with seasoning mix as directed on package. Pour meat in the bottom of an 8X8 pan that's been sprayed with Pam. Sprinkle generously with cheese. I use Colby-Jack.

Prepare corn muffin batter as directed on package using egg and skim milk; spread evenly over meat and cheese.

Bake at 400 for about 15-20 minutes, until cornbread is done.

Right Now I Am Listening To

Last week I received a new CD in the mail to review: Jonny Diaz "More Beautiful You". I immediately put in the CD player in the Fan (Family Van) and fell in love!

Jonny's music reminds me of Jack Johnson and Matt Costa.... that mellow, calming, comforting style I crave. But Jonny's songs are actually Contemporary Christian music and what a treat that was! We attend a contemporary worship service at our Methodist church and each week I look forward to getting to worship while listening to awesome inspiring music. I think Jonny's music would fit right in.
Jonny has opened for some of Christian music's biggest acts like MercyMe and Steven Curtis Chapman. I really think you'll love his acoustic style and you've got to check out "The Opener (Bonus Track)". Too cute..... (And wouldn't you know he's a baseball player.... my weakness!)
Be sure and head over to my giveaway site where I'll be giving away 5 copies of his CD "More Beautiful You"!

I Am The Proud Borrow of

The Kazdin Method for Parenting the Defiant Child
My bargain ladies assure me that this is the book for me. Since I have a child that is un-punishable (Me: If you don't do what I say, I'll turn the TV off! WC: Fine, I want you to turn it off!) and doesn't quite know her boundaries and how to show respect (Me: Don't you talk to me that way! WC: Don't you talk to ME that way Momma!) it stands to reason that positive reinforcement is the way to go. A part of this equation is that you simply can't contain her (so time-out isn't an option) and she really thinks getting in trouble is quite funny.
Actually, we've already been working on positive reinforcement with her therapist, and we've made great strides. I just want to institute some consistency in our days and hope to have more goods days than bad, so I've been looking for a "method" and I'm hoping this is the one.
So tell me, do you have any experiences with this book? I checked this out from the public library at lunch today and can't wait to dive into it this weekend. I'm planning for a Monday start, because, well, we all know it's just not possible to start anything new on a day other than Monday.

Glee Love

I am so excited! I just download several songs from Glee and I can't wait to get them on my ipod and get out and run run run! I am feeling so much better this week and have actually gotten on the treadmill twice. It's been over two months since I've exercised and I packed on about 10 pounds and I can't wait to get back in the swing of things. These songs ought to do it!

  • Don't Stop Believin'
  • Gold Digger
  • Mercy
  • Rehab

What other ones should I get? These songs make so me happy! I pink puffy heart Glee and you cannot be my friend unless you are watching......

GDA: Boys Mocs at Lands' End

Boys All Weather Mocs from Lands' End

I am such a creature of habit! I've been buying these exact same mocs in mahogany for P for church shoes for the past 4 years! They are comfy, reasonably-priced at $29.50, and oh-so-cute!

Here's the best part: if you happen to need a 9, 10, 11 or 2, they are on sale for $14.99! I snatched up a pair of 13s for P last night, but they appear to be out of stock in that size today.

And here's a free shipping code for someone to use (expires today): Enter the Promotion Code OCT6 and the PIN 1006 in the space provided.

And if that code happens to not work, just click on "Get Live Help- Chat Online" and sweetly ask if they have a free shipping code since the one you have doesn't work, and they might just give you one!

By all means, don't you forget to go through ebates! I'm approaching $900 in cash back since I joined and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Secret: Fabulous Homemade Pizza

Do you know about these fabulous pizza pans? Until very recently, I did not and always lamented that my pizza crust never quite baked right- it was never the same crispness in the middle as it was on the edges.

Some friends invited us over for pizza one night and let us in on the secret: these pans!

We don't have a Williams-Sonoma locally, but I picked up a similar pan at Target last week and I am so glad I did! What a difference! I am sold and will never go back to regular pizza pans.

Sierra Mist Free Cranberry Splash is BACK!!!!!

Crazy Y2K me picked up three 12 packs of Sierra Mist Free Cranberry Splash because I was simply beside myself that I found it! It appeared at Target for a very short time last Christmas, then disappeared just as quickly.

This stuff is fabulous and makes you feel like you are having an alcoholic beverage, and right now, this is about as close as I can get until I get some good lab work and my poor body is back to normal, and who knows when that will be.... so this is totally hitting the spot!

Note: There's been a packing change, but the 12 pack I picked up looked like the design above and was called Sierra Mist Free. However, inside the package, the cans had the design below on them and the name has been changed a bit to Diet Sierra Mist. They must have had some boxes left over from last year! Funny.....

Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Led Zeppelin

Oh, how I love classic rock music. So when I saw this lullaby CD I just had to get it for WC. Every night, we play this CD on a low volume as she is going to sleep. The lullaby versions of Led Zeppelin songs are simply beautiful! If you are a fan, you'll definitely recognize the songs, but if not, you'll still love the beautiful melodies and instruments.

They also have versions for Metallica, The Beatles, Bob Marley, U2, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Cure, AC/DC, and so many others. Such a fun idea!
