The popular MILF dating site is really pushing the envelope now. I think it’s pretty funny — many are outraged. What do you think? I don’t think there is anything sexy about breast feeding except that my AA boobs went to a B and I felt huge. I purposely wore no bra and tight tees just so I could see what it felt like to be out there. It was ok.
Speaking of cougars . . . I just had my first experience with Jaguars this weekend (that would be the older version of a cougar). I don’t know, I think at that point, you need to give up on the bar scene and just put out an ad. It’s kinda gross.
Have a great week — I’ll see you tomorrow with a recipe.

I haven’t always been a huge fan — probably mostly because she’s super gorgeous, has a hot husband, and has what seems like a perfect life (I know, pretty shallow). Every time I saw something about her in Africa adopting yet another child — I kept thinking she was just doing it to get good press. But when I read her Op-Ed about her decision to have a preventative double mastectomy, I cried. I cried because of her self-sacrifice to be safe from getting breast cancer and her selflessness. I could feel how much she loves her children and her family and wants to be around to see them grow-up and to be able to grow old with her husband.
My sister did the same thing about ten years ago — and, to me, I feel like it would be losing part of who you are — losing your female-ness. I can’t imagine volunteering to have your breasts taken and replaced by something artificial. It was encouraging and empowering to read about her decision and knowing should I ever have to do something like that, that I wouldn’t be any less of a woman.
So, I’ve changed my tune about Angelina, I have respect for her bravery and for the example that she is making for the rest of us. And using her celebrity in a good way.
You go, Girl!

Hi girls, I’m really back. It’s been a crazy couple months — but you will be seeing more of me now . . . .
This video made me laugh out loud. It took me back to my labors — especially the first one, when you have NO idea what is going to hit you. I just remember my ex shuddering every time I had a contraction (of course it could have just been the poo that kept sneaking out . . .) And, the simultaneous feeling of extreme joy and terror when they handed me my son.
Do you have any good birth stories? I’d love to hear!

You know, since I was a little girl, I always wanted to be black. I think black women are beautiful — the skin, the hair, the attitude. Also, since 1984, I’ve had a massive crush on Prince. Today, I just bought $250 concert tickets to go see him live. Insane.
I’ve been out of the loop for a while – life has been moving at warp speed. I think I’m back on the wagon.

I made this shrimp dish the other night — delicious! And, I actually enjoyed the shaved zucchini. Something about the shaving part that actually made it taste different. You could add a brown rice or a quinoa salad — but I didn’t, I just added a bottle of red wine. Perfect! Recipe.

I know, I know, I’ve been M.I.A. for a bit. Sorry. I was doing a cleanse via blog and I just couldn’t bring myself to do 2 blogs at once. Lot’s going on for me & Hot Mamas . . . . trying to get into a newer bigger more beautiful space. I should know this week! So, you’ll either be seeing lots of super happy posts, or a bunch of wrist-slitting-type music.
I love this video and how raw & beautiful Rihanna is. I still have my head shaved like hers . . . not sure how the hell I’m going to grow it out.
I have a great recipe for you tomorrow! Tonight – out to celebrate my upcoming Mexico retreat. Margaritas are a certainty.
