The Kleenex Blogs

Things I like about being sick:
I get to wear my onesies all day
I don't have to brush my hair
The cat cuddles with me all day and he lets me have the pillow for once.
The boyfriend makes me tea.
Saved by the bell re runs.
I eat as much as I want because my body needs nutrients, right?
But the best part by far is that I sleep all day and I get a snore/drool on myself pass. :)

The Rainbow Cake.

The Rainbow Cake Recipe

1 cup Crisco

1 cup margerine

2 cup of butter is better (aka 4 sticks) but I was OUT OF BUTTER. How does this happen? I don’t even know…

4 2/3 cup of white sugar….yummmmeeeeee

Cream the sugar and the butter

Add 10 egg whites

4 teaspoons of vanilla

Blend until just barely incorporated.

Add slowly and mix together:

6 cups flour

8 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 c milk, warmed for 30 sec in microwave to bring to room temp

You need Red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple food coloring


Add 2 cups of the batter to 6 different mixing bowls and add one of the food colors to each bowl and mix. Put each in a 9 inch greased and floured pan and into a 350 Fehrenheit degree oven. They generally cook from between 15 and 25 minutes.

Once they are done (insert a toothpick through the middle and if it comes out clean you are good) then you can pull them out of the oven and quickly flip them over onto a cooling rack and out of the pan. Let cool for at least an hour.


1 Cup of margarine

1 Cup of Crisco

3 Large dalups of whipped cream cheese

Blend until fluffy

Sift 3 cups of powdered sugar and add one cup at a time until fully encorporated into the mix.

Add 1.5 tsp vanilla

Add ½ cup milk.

Whip until creamy. I whipped it for like five minutes.

Frost each layer and layer the cakes. Frost the top and the sides. Refrigerate over night so you can surprise your coworker tomorrow…omg…so excited…


A few weeks ago a few of my lady friends went out on the town, drank till their little livers cried and then...they took this picture:

Lauren, Jill and Holly, thank you for the incredi-laugh. I have never in my life seen such a ridiculous set of expressions. This is true talent ladies, and for that I commend you.
You make me miss college so much it hurts. Hugs and kisses kiddos.

This is so beautiful and renewing. Pray for Haiti and do your part.

You can purchase Rihanna's cover of Bob Marley's Redemption Song on iTunes. All proceeds benefit Haiti relief efforts. Helping others is a beautiful thing, and remember - kharma makes the world go 'round.

Bibbity, Bobbity, BOO!

I am making a cake this weekend. I must. If I don't, I will surely die. DEATH is nothing to mess around with people.

Besides, only the good die young.

This completely random picture of a rooster seems appropriate at this time.

I have a weakness for multiples. Hottest twins on this planet? You betcha.

You sir, are a god among men. Just sayin'.

Picture credit goes to TokioHotelUSA's twitter page. Thank you! Even though I never asked...

Snow and hamburger! What a post!

Woo! It rained at work and snowed at home! I could not possibly be happier!!

Okay, now for the meat of my post. Ha. Ha. Waaahahaha.

Lets make some dinner! First, cut up a little less than half an onion. White or red depending on your personal preference.

Start sautéing the onion in olive oil on low heat while you cut up two bell peppers. I prefer orange and yellow peppers because they are sweet and add a beautiful range of colors to the dish.

Start by cutting the top off the peppers and pulling out the inards. Next cut the bottom of and “fillet” the pepper so you can cut it into strips.

Remember, there are many ways to skin a cat, so just because I cut my peppers a certain way doesn’t mean you can’t cut them your own way.

Now mince a clove (or three depending on your preference for garlic) of garlic. It is easier to peel if you smash it with your chopping knife first.

Add the minced garlic and the peppers to the sautéing onions.

If you don't own a garlic mincer, go read someone elses blog, because you fail at life. ;-P

Add some diced tomatoes, I used canned ones for convenience. But remember, the more fresh stuff you use in your meals the better the taste. Ingredients will make or break your recipe!

Add in a lb of hamburger meat (fully defrosted in the refrigerator over two days).

Cook everything until the hamburger is done. Stir continuously.

When the meat is done, strain out the fat. I should also note that a healthier option is ground turkey. But really you should eat more red meat cause I grew up on a cattle ranch and therefore like to tell everyone EAT MORE BEEF.


Once the hamburger is done and strained cook some quick rice and add it to the mix.

Heat up tortillas and serve!

This is really really good with melted cheese on top. For a healthier version use whole wheat tortillas


Oh yea, add some sour cream for an orgasm in your mouth!

I can't believe I almost forgot to blog about this!!

WHAT KIND OF A PERSON forgets about the best weekend of their life???

A couple of weeks ago I went home to the central coast, the beautiful, majestic coast. How I miss you! Anyways, while I was there...I of course took tons of incriminating and silly photos of my conquests. SO here they are, for the entire world to see. Never said I was that bright.

The best friend/soul mate/twin and I went to the beach and tried to do yoga in the wind. In pants. In the sand. In the wind. Did I mention the wind?

We were very getting people to stare. Beyond that we just fell on our asses a lot.

We did some magical things like watch the sunset. Here we, the twin and Ida-roo (the greatest person on the planet. Obviously.)

How did I ever leave this place?

I think it had something to do with...
Finding a job?
Escaping my crazy parents?


I am coming back for you if not now, when I retire. :)

Let us all be more like this clover. Learn to grow, even amongst rocks.
