I Whip My Hair Back & Forth

The title of this post has nothing to do with what I am about to talk about.
But it's true, I do whip my hair back and forth and I love it. However, my husband has different feelings about it. I don't really understand why because I can't think of anything annoying about it.
I mean all you do is whip your hair back and forth and yell "I whip my hair back and forth" repeatedly.

Anyhow--anybody else in Friday shock right now? As in you are shocked it's Friday already?
Me too. It's been a good week friends. At least it appears that way when I look through my phone pictures. If I had to sum it up it would go somethin' like this:

I used 4 sticks of butter to make the most amazeballs cookies ever. Recipe found here. Make em. Drool over em. And eat all 72. That's what I do anyhow.
Because I was worried that would only cause me to gain 7 pounds, I thought it was necessary to eat frozen yogurt. twice. What?

Oh, and then I accidentally wound up in the Dunkin Donuts drive thru lane yesterday morning. Frick.

Don't worry, I did do other things than just eat. I also drank. While laying in the sun. In a sports bra and yoga pants. That's a given though.

I knew I had to burn off those calories somehow so I rounded up my husband and.....
that's a joke people.

What I really did was help my friend steal a bike from a 3 year old and run away. Talk about a good calorie burner. And a great photo opp.

And there we have it. My week in a nutshell. What does that even mean? I've never stuck anything in a nutshell before. Whatevs.

Time for me to shut up. I know, you were thinking that like five paragraphs ago. Sorry Charlie.
However, I do have somebody awesome for you to meet. She is one of those talented kind. You know what I mean. The kind that actually know how to do something other than eat, drink, and steal bikes. And because she is so talented, she has the ability to bless you with a sweet giveaway. One more thing--she lives in San Diego. Meaning I will be moving in with her soon. #iwish.
Read on. You will be glad you did.

Hello lovely Living in Yellow readers, it's nice to meet you.!  Thanks so much to Erin for having me on her blog today.  This is such a great place to be guest blogging :).
A little about me....
I am a writer and handmade business owner.  I blog over at {Acute Designs}.
I love to cook and eat. I post all my recipes on my food blog, taste. I own a handmade accessories business also called{Acute Designs}.  I specialize in designing and hand crafting hair accessories and jewelry for bridal and everyday wear. You can shop on Etsy or my online shop.  
I write - blogs, e-books, and more.   My writing and personality is equal parts sarcastic, self-deprecating, and ummm, pictures of my dogs.  When in doubt, I always post pictures of my dogs.  Or talk about my dogs.  I might need professional help....
I am from the Midwest but currently live in Southern California {specifically San Diego}.  I love San Diego.  It is gorgeous and I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to live here {and avoid winters} for the past five years. Despite all the sunshine and palm trees, my heart is in the Midwest.  Yes, I know that sounds crazy.  I never realized how much I loved it until I left it. I have two crazy dogs and one crazy husband.  I love them all dearly but some days all three can be a lot of work. Want to know more about me?  Check out the about me section on my blog and/or this post... which gets a little deeper than my usual postings.
This {writing, blogging, and my handmade business} is my full-time job.  I was stuck in job{s} I hated for years and truly feel like the luckiest person because I get to do what I love every single day.

  6. My hair is too short to whip back and forth - wahhhh!! Yes that makes me sad.

    I am going to make those amazeball cookies and I am going to eat them all. If it weren't bad for me i'd eat the entire bowl of dough raw. But I heard raw eggs aren't that great for you. But if this is true - why do super althletes drink them? Do they have iron stomachs or something? Do you know anything about the anatomy of an athlete? This is long and rambly.

  7. 4 sticks of butter, I'm sold.


    I loooove her headbands, although I have never been able to pull one off without looking like I'm trying really hard to pull a headband off.

    I guess if there's a discount code involved I might as well go shopping.

  11. It makes me feel so good to know that someone else eats as much crap as I do, although I complain about the 7lbs I then gain.

    Also, 16 Handles has the best marketing ever, somehow they convince people that when you put a snickers bar on frozen yogurt because it on, well, frozen yogurt, so it must be healthy!
