Todays Bento lunch

Today’s lunch is boiled chicken, teriyaki stir fried noodles, honey roasted cashews, snow peas, red bell pepper, and veggie chips. Yum yum! Toney has the same but in a bit larger portion.


Knotty Boy Dread Stuff-Review

So, after 4 months of paying someone to dread Toney’s hair we gave up. All she did way put a ton of sticky liquid in his hair and twirl it into a bunch of coils. Needless to say, It hadn’t even started locking, and didn’t look remotely like dreads.

Enter Knotty Boy.
Want to Know the Secret to Wicked Dreads?

We ordered their starter kit, and had it in hand within a week (we are in Texas and they are in Canada). Sat down Satuday and got to work on his head. Now before we go any further, I have to tell you how GOOD this stuff smells! I couldn’t stop sniffing the soap bars, that’s how yummy it is! The kit comes with (funny) instructions on how to dread, and they have instructions on their website as well. I dare you to try and read their site with a straight face 🙂

Anywho, back to dreading.

I have weak wrists, and can’t sit forward for too long at a time so it took me 14 hours (yes I timed it) to do his whole head. I think a normal person could do it in a reasonable time 🙂 Plus the fact that I had to undo what the last lady did to his hair…

I think it looks great!

Another plus to them…they are super responsive! I think the longest they have taken to respond to one of my emails is 2 hours. Much better than other places 🙂

I highly recommend Knotty Boy to EVERYONE who has or wants dreads!

Busy busy busy



Been so busy prepping for AnimeFest, but it was worth it (: Hopefully I’ll have a few photos to share soon. Also we went jet skiing Saturday, and even though I put on tons of sunscreen my legs are burnt to a lovely lobster red *insert sarcasm*.

AnimeFest, anyone?

I am so freakin excited for Animefest! I haven’t been blogging much since I started prepping for the convention, but when y’all see photos, trust me…It will be so worth it! I’ve got both Toney and myself ready for 1 day as Steampunks and 1 day as Cyberpunks. Sadly, we will probably only be there for 2 out of 4 days. I swear we have a good reason though! JET SKIING!! Saturday we (along with my cousin Vahn) are renting jet skis for the day, and will be hanging out on the lake having fun and BBQing.

So, in summary: stay tuned for awesome photos of the lake and of great costumes from AnimeFest.


***I’ll ad post tags later, WordPress is being stupid at the moment and won’t let me add any***

Steampunck pocketwatch ftw!


Took a month or so to get here from Hong Kong, but so work the wait for only $8 (:

Side note: I’m blogging from my phone, and it auto-corrected “ftw” from “fwt”. I’m so glad my phone knows me (:

Day 11 of waiting on the doctor


Apparently the lady at the front desk there has “no idea what is taking so long, I mean its been 11 days.” So she’s “sending her a note” Who is her? The doctor? Riiight, because that’ll help *sarcasm*. Oh well.

We had the missionaries over this past Friday, and they gave me a blessing of health. I think it helped. On a scale of 1-10 I’m about a 6 rather than an 8 (:

In other news, Zeke was being a stinker and bit my eyebrow ): still hurts… and Izzy is doing good.

Went to a Scarby workshop for the Royal Guard and had a good time seeing everyone. I took some doll photos in the park there (:

Sanctuary Salon in Dallas review

We’ve been going to Ashe (Ah-shay) for a few months now to get DKs dreads done. She’s pretty inexpensive compared to other places we called around to (we get them done every 2 weeks, $45 each time). Her salon is shaping up very nicely, though I don’t agree with the liquor bar. She’s pretty nice, a little easily distracted..but overall pretty nice. I have no real complaints. The one thing I didn’t like is that DK is very tender-headed and using metal clips under a dryer hurts him a bit more than normal people (But really, metal clips? and a hot dryer for 20-45 minutes?), so she had us go to the store to buy our own plastics clips for when we get his hair done. It was only $16 at the beauty supply store, but I think that is something a salon should have…Anyways, here are a few photos of the salon.
