I can bake

As i mentioned before in my Starbucks post i love their Pumpkin Bread. So i decided to make my own that way i can make as much as i want for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I picked up 1 box of Pillsbury Quick Bread (pumpkin) and followed the directions on the back. It was super easy all you needed was 2 eggs, some water, and cooking oil all of which i already had. I used all of the box and put it into my bread container (filled up almost to the top) and it was done in like an hour. However it was a little bland and not as pumpkiny and Starbucks. So i used my very own secret ingredient of pumpkin pie spice(about 4-5 shakes) in the batter and that batch came out perfect . Next time i am going to add pumpkin seeds halfway through the baking process to give it the real effect. To keep the bread fresh just slice it up and cover with saran wrap. Of course mines didn't last past 2 days Gia and hubby ate it for breakfast,snack.and desert , so i will be picking up 5 more boxes .

Its not all its cracked up to be!

Bat girl when we got home.
I had a very stressful day today...lets start off with an email i received from Gia's agent at midnight. It stated that she needed to be on the set of a comedy t.v. show at 2pm Saturday . So Gia goes to bed on time as usual and wakes up around 4 am with the bad dream blues. Me being un-tolerably tired ( lol is that a word?) i quickly gave her warm milk and put her back to sleep. Woke her up pretty late this morning(to preserve her happiness ) and seemed to be running late anyway because she had a "I'm not doing anything mommy!" attitude for about an hour. She refused to eat , oh and did i mention that night she busted her lip pretty bad (i should have seen the signs). We get in the car and BAM! she's a new girl bubbly,not cranky,happy then she starts to blurt out "Mommy I'm gonna smile and play okay?" Rushing there almost 2 blocks away from our destination i look back and see her almost choking on white spit up with lettuce. We pull over the car and notice she had spit up a foot long along with a cup of milk from the night before. Needless to say we turned the car around and went and got some good ole ice cream. Daddy and I were very upset however it was partially are fault for not being better prepared with extra shirts and what not like we usually are. We don't push our child things happen but at the end of the day she's only 2 1/2 and can't really help what goes on. There you have it the trial and tribulations of a day in the "biz" with a 2 1/2 year old. 
PS. How dare the Phillys not win! Are you serious how could they do this to me and our city?!Ugh!!!

 I have a few things i want to talk about today. 

#1 : The do not vote campaign that is to be aired tomorrow is encouraging people not to vote basically because our senate options are not so good. I strongly agree with this campaign and am thinking about not voting; I refuse to vote for Sharon Angle and i refuse to vote for Harry Reid . In my opinion they both are full of it with their false promises and low blow campaign strategies and overall id just rather not.
#2: I want to tell all my followers i appreciate you commenting on my  post and more . I always check up on all of your blogs and leave comments ,i would love for you to email me regarding the Now-Mi Series. If you don't know what that is go to the labels section and click the post. Email:
#3: I am overly excited to be going to the carnival this year as well as trick or treating. The whole spirit of Halloween just gets me excited like a kid in a candy store, i cant wait! All those gut retching rides sky rocketing you 100's of feet into the air wow... adrenalin high lol.

Okay, im done ranting :).

News Happening Now

Zahra Baker

Zahra Baker 10 years old , STILL MISSING!
Has a prosthetic leg from her fight with cancer and  also wears hearing aids 10 year old Zahra was ubducted from her bed in North Carolina.  Police drained a pond looking for her body little Zahra was often beaten and abused by her step mom who is now in jail; Police believe Zahra is dead and no one has yet to be charged with her murder . Now the police are looking at her fathers job where a scent of Zahra's body was found at the wood chipper, the cadaver dogs are repeatedly sniffing and barking at the wood chipper . A woodpile and dirt maybe hiding her body,they have searched the dads job meticulously and found nothing so far. The stepmother had a sick attraction to the little girls cancer problem(much housing syndrome) the stepmother got so much attention she was obsessed with it. Then the stepmother got jealous and controlling and had so much resentment because the little girl had so many needs she took it out on her to a further extent . It has been told by the police that the stepmother has lied 3 times about having brain cancer. Also the family has moved around multiple times because services such as school and child services were getting concerned. It has been discovered that the parents lied about putting the little girl in homeschool as well. Now in my opinion the dad knew about the abuse the dad helped covered it up and did not want to deal with it. This poor innocent little girl may have been killed by the people she thought loved her most. After a battle with cancer and abuse everything gets taken to another level and no one thought to do anything serious about it until now.I strongly hope that those parents were not heartless enough and sick enough to put that beautiful girl into a wood chipper. No matter where you live for your safety and others please get  to know you neighbors because you never know until its too late.

I really want to start a section of my blog called NOW-MI (now me )... this would be based on offering my help and advise as an outsider looking in on relationships ,problems,and any other things you may need help on. I will then make a post or video about the situation keeping you completely anonymous of course and sharing it with everyone for there opinions as well. If you think you may want to be apart of this feel free to send me an anonymous email (name not needed) at with Now-Mi in the subject bar. Also if you think this would be a good idea let me know in the comments section this is something id really like to pursue ,it would take place every Monday granted i have enough people interested . I just feel like as women we should all be here for each other and its always great to have an unbiased opinion on any type of situation .

Reviving Ophelia

You don't plan on ending up unhappy.
I have to say literally 5 sec ago i watched one of Lifetimes greatest movies "Reviving Ophelia " regarding relationship abuse. This movie was so empowering and so emotionally disturbing it led me to do something new for my blog(thats in another post)and its lovely readers. Most people have to understand what abused women go through it is so emotionally draining and so hard to stand up and fight, i know someone that is very close to me whos been there and i vowed to help never let her go back. This movie was about a 17 year old and her cousin who is /was the rebel of the family. Elizabeth the goodie too-shoes finds her self slowly but shortly being mentally and physically controlled . Her cousin Kelli sees' that if that could happen to Liz then she better straighten out because it could be a lot worse for her. Im not going to give away the movie however i want everyone to know we all have secrets and we all have some type of fear ,its overcoming it that makes us who we are. Na-Mi Art will never judge you everyone is equal ,insecurities and all aside we are a community and family and i insist we all support each other. That being said please call  1−800−799−SAFE(7233)  -(for just teens)  1-866-331-9474 if you are being abused or need to talk about possible abuse signs this line is completely anonymous there website is geared with an emergency button.
