Dreaming of a drop top

MuranoCC_103

My husband drives a sports car. I drive the family car. Now don’t get me wrong. I love my car. It’s nicer than any car my parents ever had growing up. It’s a beautiful car. But it’s still the family car. Rather than driving around in the convertible I’ve always dreamed of, I drive around…

I’m a CHEATER!

bakers choc

I admit it. And this holiday season will more than likely be no exception. I think we all do at one time or another. Buy a dozen cookies from the local baker, take them out of the plastic container they came in and place them on your own plate and wrap with cellophane. Take it…

Holiday Decorations

Back Camera

So last month I was flipping through a catalog (I think Ballard Designs though I can’t find it now) and came upon these super cute blocks that spelled out “Let It Snow”.   Here’s the problem, it was $75!!!  I’m not the world most frugal shopper, but $75 for 11 blocks.  Come on! I was…

Botox, “fillers” and scalpels, oh my

cosmetic_surgery

(think Lions, and tigers and bears from Wizard of Oz)! Who ever knew that in the “war” against aging, so many of us would be willing to plunk down a respectable chunk of change on winning how ever many small “battles” we could?  Despite the recession, or perhaps in spite of the recession, people are…

My Big, Fat, American Thanksgivings

Margo2

I grew up in a BIG Mexican-American family. And we did everything BIG. Especially holidays. And ESPECIALLY Thanksgiving. It was probably our biggest and most difficult-to-navigate holiday. Christmas was easy: Christmas eve with Dad’s side of the family and Christmas Day with Mom’s side. But Thanksgiving was a NATIONAL holiday. A day to celebrate alongside…

Michael Stars Cozy Chic

I’ve talked about my Michael Stars addiction many many many times here at Rock On Mommies. Recently I did a TV appearance on a local morning show here in San Diego.  Even then I had on Michael Stars Shine Off The Shoulder Top. Now that the cold weather is blowing in and the holidays are just…

strawberry-shortcake-game-friends-200x300

Just a real quick post today. The amazing creators over at Soma Creates asked me to try out the Strawberry Shortcake iPhone app. This is probably the easiest review I’ve ever done. My soon to be 4 year old is addicted!  She loves it!!! Normally when she wakes up she’ll ask for my iPad or…

What I did

Back Camera

So did you all read that Ellie (or I, I’m still not sure who did it) stole a game from Borders? If a friend had come to me to tell me that this happened to them I’m pretty sure I’d tell them they should return it or pay for it.  I’m going to be honest,…

What would you do?

Back Camera

So last Thursday my daughter (or me, I’m not exactly sure who) mistakenly stole this game from Borders. We had been to dinner with Mama Mary Show and her kiddies.  After a glass of wine, we decided we should hit up Borders.  You see, this location is closing and everything is 20-30% off!   So you can…
