Alltop, confirmation that I kick ass

Let’s see. How did I mess up as a mom this week?

You know. I did pretty well when I think about it. Some of it has to do with the fact that I can still barely speak above a whisper (thanks to the Botox). That means I can’t YELL at my kid. Not that I had the energy to. This illness has caused me to shed 9 pounds very quickly which has left me feeling pretty light-headed. How do these Hollywood actresses do it? With their crash diets. I guess it doesn’t matter if they end up feeling light-headed. They probably don’t even notice a difference.

Well, here’s a drink that’ll leave YOU feeling light-headed. But in a good, yummy way. It’s a twist on a pina colada called….

Puree bananas, diced pineapple, pineapple juice, coconut milk and ice in a blender. Stir in rum. Divide among 4 glasses. Garnish with pineapple wedges.
