1. Just when I thought I was at capacity, I remembered that my therapy license is up for renewal this year… in a few months actually.

**Edited to add results from the Twist-n-Curl, as promised!** Latest Observations: It’s always Gia, Gia, Gia! No one cares about poor ole Nikki.

Damn! Damn! Damn! *in my best Martin voice* And so it begins. But I’m okay. I’m not spazzing. I’m breathing… centered.Trying to hold it together, but Knights of Columbus, this is a butt load of hair!

By Curly Nikki 43 Comments

Hola Chicas, I totally flaked on the kids. I bought candy last week, ate it all, and didn’t restock. What can I say… I love Butterfingers. Despite having absolutely no where to go and no one to see, I still put Baby G in her costume. She’s been crazy fussy all day so she wasn’t feeling it, but I still…

By Curly Nikki 66 Comments

Latest ‘Mommy’ Observations: 1. She came equipped with some kind of a sixth sense- awaking, as if on cue, from sound sleep to cry or yell whenever I’m about to eat. And don’t let hubby get too close to me…she starts hollering as if to say, ‘oh hell naw, I am not ready to be a big sister yet!’ 2….

O…M…Gosh Friggin’ kudos and hats off to all of the super moms out there. Seriously, this is NO joke. Apparently the stakes have been upped and I need to put on the big girl panties. The motivation to write this short post came a moment ago. I’m used to running in all directions, top speed, all the time. I’m also…

Hola Chicas, It’s a beautiful Saturday in sunny North Carolina! I’m with friends and fam and enjoying a glass of Shiraz. Can you say… content 🙂 The sun and wine have me geeking, but I’m even happier because I’m experiencing a rare phenomenon- – 6 day hair. Wowsers! What product combo resulted in this glorious event?
