Not sure who we are?  Head over to Meet The Ladiesto meet Jeni, and Reviews by Clo to meet Chloe (you can call her “Clo”!)

Now….refill that coffee and let’s get to chatting!

On our minds this morning

Flat Iron Experts QT Performance Flat Iron Review
Yesterday, I (Jeni) got to do this Flat Iron Experts QT Performance Wet-Dry Flat Iron Review.  I straighten my hair quite often, because I have this semi-natural curl.  Like, in SOME parts, it’s super wavy, but in others – a loose, ickiness that I hate!  I normally use my Chi that I got 5 years ago, and it works really great. I always thought that Chi was THE flat iron of all flat irons, until now.  I’m in love with this QT Performance flat iron.  I would marry it if it wasn’t weird.  Even better, it’s a wet to dry flat iron, so I don’t have to wait for my stupid hair to dry.  I woke up this morning actually EXCITED to wash my hair and straighten it!  I’m such a girl….
Do you have a favorite hair appliance or product?


Sometimes it’s nice to just take a dip. That’s why, I, Clo and my fiance’ Winston enjoyed some quiet time the other day at the pool. I took my GoPro and we had fun taking pictures (should I say I had more fun). It was nice and hot and it was perfect pool weather. I totally wish we owned a house with our owl pool and hot tub! I swear, I’d be in it like all the time. Living on Kauai, it is nice to be able to enjoy pool-days all throughout the year. Unlike New Yorkers who had a pretty cold Valentine’s Day!
How was the weather where you live for Valentine’s?
Did you have any fun plans?

I, Clo, LOVE puppies! That’s why when I saw this Labrador Puppies calendar at Petco for 75% off, only $1.29 I knew I had to grab it. It sits perfectly on my desk at work and I just love it. In fact, I actually grabbed a few for all of my family members! They just adore it. If I were you, I’d head over to your local Petco to see if they have these adorable calendars on sale.

Desperate Housewives

My (Jeni) sister-in-law, Wendy had never seen Desperate Housewives.  Ever.  As crazy as it might have seemed for me to have never seen Fraggle Rock until recently, this blew my mind!  NEVER watched DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES?  It’s one of my favorite tv shows!  So, I have her watching it now.  She’s in the middle of season 2 now, and says she’s really happy I convinced her to watch it.  She’s totally addicted.  That’s another one of my favorite things – being able to say, “I told you so!!”  🙂
Her favorite character is Lynette.  My favorite is definitely Bree!

Have you watched Desperate Housewives?  Who was your favorite character?

Breyers Gelato Indulgence Raspberry Cheesecake

Have you ever eaten something and said, “Now THAT is STUPID GOOD!”? That’s what I (Jeni) said after trying this Breyers Gelato Indulgence Raspberry Cheesecake.  It’s seriously amazing – creamy, cheesecake-y, flavorful and dangerously addictive.

What’s your favorite sweet treat!?

Janell at would spend all day in the kitchen if she didn’t have to clean up the mess. Good thing her hubby has said if she cooks he will clean! They have been married for almost 19 years – so he has washed a lot of dishes. They have 3 kids that love to visit Disney World. They grew up in Mexico City so life in Kentucky is a lot different for them. Make sure you check out her blog for yummy recipes, tips about how to save time and money, and reviews of products she loves.
Saving You Dinero Recipes
Some of her favorite recipes include her Grandma’s Chicken Parmesan (that was featured in All You Magazine!), Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake, and any of her 40 Crock Pot Freezer Meals. Her family rarely eats the same recipe twice because she is always trying out new things in the kitchen!
We both LOVE Janell’s blog, and visit it daily!  Head over to Saving You Dinero to check it out!

What's cooking in our kitchens

Colman's Mustard in slow cooker ham sandwiches

I (Jeni) love ham.  I love anything that comes from a pig, really.  So, when I had some ham in the fridge, I created this yummy recipe to make something different.  It’s SUPER yummy and has a unique tangy/tart/smoky flavor!

Check out the Slow Cooker Saucy Ham Sandwiches Recipe!

  1. I love Breyers Gelato! They are so good! The Raspberry Cheesecake is something I must try. Looking at a picture of it is enough to make me drool.

  2. Today I’m thinking about how luck I am to have a family full of love. I know of someone who recently lost their husband far too soon, and it reminds me of how lucky I am.

  3. I LOVE those backpacks! I want them! I need to check those out! I love reading these posts! You do a great job on this blog!

  4. I’m thinking about everything I need to get done. I’m thinking how I’m going to get everything done with a hurt lower back. I’m thinking I’ll just take things slow and not over do it. Happy Monday!

  5. I’m with you! I LOVE Bree. She reminds me of myself. I love how her character unfolds. I think I need to go back and watch the series again. I love it so much when it was on.

  6. I love these great deals. I really love boots! I think I may be obsessed haha…and yes I’ve seen Desperate Housewives. I miss watching the show! I need to start over from season one and watch them again.

  7. Oh my goodness, Breyers Indulgence Raspberry Cheesecake Gelato looks incredibly delish! I’m going to see if we have it at our grocery store ASAP! Great deal on the Uggs too. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    Love the hair! The iron works really well, I’d love to get one for myself! It’s really nice to just spend a day relaxing and not worrying about anything. Those are great deals!

  9. That’s a lot of chatting! Such fantastic topics to discuss, too 🙂 For Valentine’s Day here in IL we had a LOVELY (she says sarcastically) snow storm blow through for most of the day. Today I had a big blogger oops today while trying to make a recipe so that’s been on my mind. I tried to save it, though, so we’ll see how it turns out! I’m fairly confident it can be salvaged but we’ll find out tomorrow for sure.

  10. I’m glad you had a nice time on Valentine’s Day. We went out on Saturday but it was freezing so we decided to stay in and watch some movies on Sunday.

  11. This is fantastic! I have been wanting a pair of UGGs forever but have not been wanting to spend the full price! Also how has she never seen Desperate Housewives? I loved that show so much. I really miss it a lot.

  12. I am so jealous you were able to go and jump i in a pool!! The flat iron looks like it did an amazing job on your hair as well!

  13. Carmela Mempin Reply

    Wow. I really love the backpacks and I really wanted to have one of that. I’m going to check it out and see.

  14. Carmela Mempin Reply

    Kipling bags are so beautiful I want to have that. I also love the color of it. I’, going to tell this to my Best friend.

  15. Nicole Escat Reply

    I really like the Kipling bags, My sister really love to have that 🙂 I’m going to tell that to her 🙂 For sure she will like it.

  16. lucky i bought some ice cream ystrdy or else i’d be seeing this and crave some more haha i have to wait for summer here in dubai before i can play with my gopro too!

  17. My boys wear beards sometimes and their ladies grouch about them. 😉 I haven’t seen D.Housewives. I love living where it’s warm year-round too.

  18. I use to watch Desperate Housewives. Good show. The dessert ice cream/Gelato looks tasty!! Great Ugg deals! I need to check it out.

  19. Desperate Housewives is a good show that I watch at time. And these are some great deals & those boots are looking amazing. I love that delicious dessert as well, that looks pretty much like a healthy recipe to go for.

    A Day at the pool sounds like a lot of fun. I have been really missing summer lately!
