A Naughty Yet Wonderful Weekend

What a weekend. I spent Saturday in Waco watching my daughter's team take on Brittany Griner and the defending National Champion Baylor Lady Bears (so fun--and totally beatable team), followed by a full day of college interviews in downtown Dallas with my youngest son.

May I just say, parenting is the most rewarding, most exhilarating, most FUN privilege on the planet! I absolutely adore my children. What an incredible gift to be their mother.

There is only one major downside to the job: it requires me to eat at places where I can't resist the crap. Yesterday it was In & Out Burgers for the 10th time this month. Not kidding. My kid Luke is in love with the place. And yesterday this lactose-sensitive 44-year-old downed an entire chocolate shake and spent the rest of the day sleeping off the sugar-high in the backseat of my husband's Armada in the Highland Park Village parking lot. Classy!

To top it all off, it was my husband's birthday yesterday. So after the long day of driving, sitting, eating, and sitting some more, I had to bake his favorite fattening oatmeal cake. And, of course, I had to eat it. A huge, honkin' piece.

Thankfully, there is an easy way to reduce the bloat (and reveal your hidden cheekbones!).
Gina and I share this #1 makeup tip for us tv peeps in this edition of The Real Botox Diaries. Promise, it works.
