Best Brush

Please excuse this grodie looking picture. I love this brush. Emma (my 7-year-old daughter) left her brush at Stephanie's house over the break and so I bought this one for a dollar at the Food Surplus Outlet. It has changed our mother-daughter relationship for the better. It used to be that Emma would scream or cry when I would do her hair in the morning before school. I have curly hair and a tender head and so I have always brushed her hair really gently while holding it so it doesn't pull right from the scalp, but she would still always make a fuss. Since I got this brush she has actually asked me to brush her hair at night because it doesn't pull. I can brush my own hair which is full of tangles without crying as well. I love this brush! If you have daughters that cry at hairdo time I really recommend you get it. I think it is less than $6 at Walgreens. Happy styling!

Free Cosmetics!!

Hey girls -- free makeup at department stores.  Macy's, Saks, Lord and Taylor, Dillards... if you bought makeup at one of these stores in the last few years they are settling a 56 million dollar suit by giving out free stuff.  One item per person per store.  I got some Lancome mascara at Saks and some Clinique day cream at Macy's.  Pretty sweet!!  Only lasts while supplies last, starts today.

Introducing Royal and Ruby McKinney

Royal and Ruby

Royal Sumner and Ruby Tresler (my maiden name) were born on December 29th around 8:15 in the evening.  Royal weighed 5 lbs 14 oz and was 18 inches long and Ruby weighed 5 lbs 11 oz and was 19 inches long.  Both were born very healthy and strong.  

I ended up having a c-section after the ultrasound showed both little ones were transverse.  Though I wish I could've delivered vaginally, the labor and delivery part of it was way easier.....the recovery, not so much.  I'm just glad it's getting better everyday.  I feel great, though a little sleepy.  

I'm SO grateful for my little ones and I think it's such a blessing to have twins.  They are beautiful in every way.
