These popcorn balls byWilliams-Sonoma  look delicious and 
retail for a whopping $45.00!

I found a recipe that can produce the same great treat and for a fraction of the cost!

  

What you will need:
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup butter

  • 1/2 cup dry-roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips


What to do:

  1. Place the marshmallows and butter into a large pot over medium-low heat, and melt them together, stirring often. Cook until blended and smooth, about 5 minutes, and remove from heat.
  2. Stir in the popcorn and peanuts, and stir gently to thoroughly coat them with the marshmallow mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. With greased hands, shape the mixture into 3 inch balls, and wrap each ball in plastic wrap.

How to Look Hot in a Minivan...




In 2003, as the newly named editor in chief of Us Weekly magazine, Janice Min was busy documenting a seismic cultural shift: the making of the “Hollywood Mom.” Think Angelina Jolie, Victoria Beckham, Halle Berry, and Beyoncé—stars who proudly displayed their pregnancies, shed the baby weight overnight, and helped turn the once-frumpy bump industry into seriously big business. In the blink of an eye, it seemed, “skinny jeans” had replaced “mom jeans.” Bugaboos had become status symbols. Motherhood itself had become an exciting style statement. And then—just eight weeks after her big promotion—Janice discovered that she was pregnant, too.

“I started ogling, with morbid fascination, the photographs that flooded my office—red-carpet and paparazzi shots of celebrities in bikinis and bandage dresses mere weeks after giving birth,” she writes. “I’d stare at my own ever-expanding body. Then I’d stare at Heidi Klum (who gave birth one month before my due date and managed to bounce back before I’d even hit the delivery room). How did these women do it? I wondered.” How to Look Hot in a Minivan was born.

With her trademark self-deprecating style and tongue-in-cheek humor, Janice set out to debunk some of Hollywood’s biggest mommy myths. Then she brought together the industry’s biggest experts in fitness, fashion, beauty, and all-things-baby to divulge the secrets behind the stars’ seemingly effortless postpartum style. Serving up practical, honest, and often surprising advice for new moms everywhere, Janice and her arsenal of experts reveal: 

• The 10 Wardrobe Essentials every chic mom should own
• How to style red carpet-worthy hair, even on school days
• The secrets to hiding a postnatal stomach pooch
• The truth behind the C-tuck (Do celebrity moms sometimes slim down courtesy of a combination cesarean section-tummy tuck?) 
• Hollywood’s Biggest Losers (What did it really take for stars like Kate Hudson, Milla Jovovich, and Poppy Montgomery to lose the baby weight?)

In How to Look Hot in a Minivan, Min dispels the idea that looking great post-pregnancy is only for the rich, the pampered, and the lucky. With Min’s guilt-free, stay-sane strategies, moms everywhere can look and feel like stars—whether their baby is six months or sixteen years.

The important things in life


I have come to understand how to decipher what is important and what is a non-"factor". My daughter will  ultimately become a hybrid version of me,imitating my beliefs and convictions...this is heavy.

Do I want my daughter to love unconditionally or hate freely? This is more important than anything I can think of. so how will I shape my daughter without leading her down some uncultivated path?

....I will take my time...

Pregnancy was one of the most exciting moments of my life and I often find myself having a pang of jealousy when I see soon to be mummy's and their baby bumps:) 
During a time when many felt insecure over expanding waist lines I enjoyed every inch of my swelling belly because I knew my little one was growing and preparing to make her big debut. 

Ladies don't be overcome by the baby blues because of weight gain or limitations...take this time to reflect on the beautiful gift that you are carrying and have fun expressing your Mummyhood through clothing and accessories...

In other words...You BETTAH WERK IT MUMMY!!
