My ALL time Low point and the winner

Just thought I would share with you all one of my ALL time lows.
Watch the below video for a funny story!

Wow, you guys were sooo kind to me with all of your comments about my blog.
So many of you think I am “Just perfect”. I have been walking around with an inflated head, thinking I am better than everyone else, my nose stuck high up in the air, and my shit don’t stink attitude. Then it happened, my bubble burst, via a 5 year old.
Me: Getting out of the shower..buck ass naked.
5 Year Old: Staring at me
Me: “Why are you looking at me like that?”
5 Year Old: Walks up to me, put both hands on my post 2 children crepe paper stomach and says, “why does your stomach jiggle like that?”
BUBBLE BURST. perfect no more. Oh well, I had a week.

I got many suggestions.
1) Get rid of the black background. This was the number one complaint.
     ok, ok, ok..I will. I will be sad to see it go. Looking into a blog redo now, but for now the black is
2) Ability to print recipes.
     Google was weird and suspended my “printable” sites. It is fixed now!!!! YEAH
3)More Videos.. I will try to work on that. It is difficult to film videos alone.
4)Daily Posts/More posts. MORE? OMG. I would claw my eyes out, cut off my fingers and
    hang myself by my computer cord.
    I know with me being perfect and all, I should be able to do it all, balance life perfectly. Wake up, put
     my pearls on. Get the kids up and out the door to school. Bake 3 homemade pies, clean the house
     with heals on , do
     all the laundry. Re do my makeup. Pick up the children from school. Do homework. Cook a 3 course
    dinner(and take photos). Do the “wifely”  duties and still put up a daily blog post, all while not getting  
    paid a cent for any of it. Um-yeah. That’s not gonna happen.  I wish I could provide you with more
    posts, but I do the best that I can…I really do. But again I aim to please, so I will try to throw a few
    more posts up here and there if I get the time πŸ™‚

And the winner of the All-Clad Slow Cooker is Ann G. Congrats!!please contact me within 72 business hours to collect you kick-ass gift!

    *virtual hugs* No one is perfect and anyone who expects that from others needs a kick. I'd be happy to kick anyone you like πŸ˜‰

    It is nice to see the black gone, but I would like you either way πŸ˜€

    ok that is the funniest thing ever. as soon as you said you threw it in the trash I knew it. I am not sure I have done that but so many things that also pertain to no self control. Thanks for being real that is why we all love you!

  5. 5

    Aren't children precious….lol….I'm so glad for the winner but now I have to go buy a crockpot for $19.95. Have a great evening.

  6. 6

    Good lord, a daily post? There is no way in hell I could pull that off nor do I want to, unless I magically get that nanny and housekeeper.
    I liked your blog when it was black too….just do what YOU want and people will still come.
    Your kids sound like mine and that would totally be something my daughter would say. Too honest but I bet if our bones were sticking out they would be totally disgusted. At least that is the theory I am sticking to πŸ˜‰

  7. 7

    Congrats to the winner. Now…well, my list to Santa has already begun!

    thrasherswife says:

    Oh, I like the black and pink… bummer. But I'm sure the new look with be just fine…

  9. 9

    Congrats to the winner! I personally really liked the black too, Its funny but when I first came to this site I thought "wow someone who shows their personality through their website" But I will still be reading whether black or white! πŸ™‚

  10. 10

    Oh no! I remember years ago when my mom had run from the bathtub to grab the phone in front of my little sister. She said, "Mommy, your butt looks like Jello Jigglers!"

  11. 11

    Just think you're fabulous, that's all. Mr. Random sucks, but you're cool. hehe jk

  12. 12

    "Pssst, Leslie, it's me, the Fudge, calling from the trash can." Yes, that's the trouble with fudge and cookies and ice cream and chocolate chips and Snickers ice cream bars and even potato salad. The evil messages just won't stop until you get out the Windex.

    I loved the black background! My own blog has a black background because I think it really makes the food stand out!

    I can completely imagine the death by hanging, via computer cord. Thanks for the laugh, I really needed it today!

    I didn't think you needed to improve, but I will say, now that the black is gone I like it!
    Who knew?
    I honestly don't see how people post 3 and 4 times a week! I am lucky to get 1 1/2!! Good luck to you!

    Me and My Pink Mixer says:

    Leslie ~ I am sitting here at work laughing my #@$ off ~ you are so funny!! By the way, I liked your black background, but the new one is ok too.
    Yesterday morning I was in my closet getting ready for work & my 17 yr. old daughter came in to rummage through my jewelry and scarves so she could borrow something to wear for school – all I had on was my undies and her only comment to me was "eeww gross". What a nice feeling that was πŸ™‚
    #@%* teenagers!

    Siggy Spice says:

    Woman! You are killin' me!!!
    Soooo reminds me of the scene in Sex and the City where Miranda goes on a chocolate cake bender. After eating most of the cake, she throws it in the garbage…eats some out of the garbage, then disgusted with herself, pours dishsoap on the rest.
    FYI, I think you are fabulous and I would come read your blog white, black, or neon yellow πŸ™‚ And at least you kiddo doesn't push the jiggle and make a "ree reer, ree reer" sound.

    Heather@ Sweet Sins 2 Share says:

    There are tons of free blog layouts out there… I am so excited to see what you pick! I am so jealous of Ann right now!!
    I am with you on the daily post. It is hard to balance life and work and then cook with photos and post daily! It will burn you out and we don't want that!!

  19. 19

    You can make me laugh so hard–awesome video!

    You know what? I didn't realize how distracting the black background was until it was gone? How unobservant am I?

    My favorite comment when I got out of the shower once: "Hey Mama, if your boobies get any bigger, we can play boxing on them." ARGGGG

    Lol, I too have the crepe paper belly and got mine after baby number 2 of 6. That child gave me stretch marks to the bottom of my ribs and the 4 babies after him never gave me any new stretch marks, lol. My doctor said he blew out my shocks. Congrads to the winner. I will continue to use my 19 year old 5 quart crockpot, lol. It is still going strong after all these years.

  21. 21

    oh man, the other day my daughter told me that it was okay that i had a big butt, sigh.

    congrats to the winner!

  22. 22

    Your kids, now and later, will always keep you grounded. We raise them to be truthful, so we can't object when they are :-). Have a great day. I'll be visiting whenever. Don't worry about the everyday thing. Have a great evening. Blessings…Mary

    Olga @ MangoTomato says:

    fudge out of a trash can? That's SO Sex & The City πŸ™‚

    no worries. you still look great!

    I haven't been to the gym in over 2 months and ate out way too much while moving from apartment to a condo, then visiting my family in Seattle and then unpacking…so yeah…the scale hasn't been kind to me either.

    A Bitchin' Kitchen says:

    Ohhh yeah, I'm definitely guilty of throwing food away to stop eating it. I've been known to buy pints of Ben and Jerry's, eat a few bites, and then chuck the rest. I feel so wasteful, but it's better than having to buy new pants every two weeks!

  26. 26

    Yeah, I don't know how people manage every day posts-I don't have enough hours….

    Congrats to the winner!

    I am so jealous of Ann G-Congrats to her. What a great gift.

    Don't we all get up and clean the house with heels on after making three pies and an egg and pancake breakfast? All while maintaining our girlish figures, of course. And reading Anna Karina.

  31. 31

    You're too funny! My kids make fun of something a little higher up than my belly, which now hang on my belly. Oh well…I'm not 21 anymore! You're doing a great job on your blog. I always get a giggle from reading your posts! Have a great week.

  32. 32

    Wait a second….

    you're talking about being au natural out of the shower and I'm the FIRST guy to comment? Is the internet broken or something?

  33. 33

    Hi! I'm Chanie from
    Just came across your blog and must say I loved your confession video. You are hysterical! Haven't yet got to the point of eatting from the trash, but then again you first have to have enough will power to throw the food out (I'd just put it on the side, thinking I'd be able to stay away)

  34. 34

    You crack me up, I don't love cooking but I love your blog! Oh, by the way, didn't you know…gray is the new black!

  35. 35

    I love, love your videos. I swear, if I were in your generation AND lived near you, we would be BFF. (Maybe I don't even need to be in your generation?)

    And yes…after picking myself off the floor from laughter, I have gone into the garbage bin…and nearly fell off the chair when you said you poured Windex to prevent further garbage incursions. Done the same thing. You're right, it's pathetic. WE'RE pathetic. Hah.
    So….now I'm on the Quick Weight Loss Diet. πŸ™
    Not kidding. Did posts in advance and will go into drafts for the next 2 months.

    The Misters Wife says:

    OMG I swear my little one said to me one day yuck mommy look at your tummy I love the way you described our tummies as crepe paper so true!!

    I love the black gone I never thought it bothered me but it looks awesome as grey!!

    Oh my gosh you had a Miranda moment from Sex in the City!!! HYSTERICAL!!

    Nutmeg Nanny says:

    Awww kids are so precious. They really do say the darndest things…haha.

  38. 38

    I love the video and the story…sorry to say that i have never done anything like that but I guess my horrible story is that I am a diabetic and I too seem to think it is ok to eat whatever I want..

  39. 39

    LOL, my daughter came in to see what you were talking about and asked why you were telling me(us) that you ate fudge from the garbage can!

    I've thrown food away to keep from eating it 'cause I have noe will power but I've managed to refrain from picking it out and eating it. Mostly 'cause there's garbage in there too, not just a nested plate of yummy food. πŸ™‚

  40. 40

    Chocolate is my crack too Leslie!!! And btw my stupid holiday eating hasn't stopped yet and the holidays have been over for how long??!!!? Yah, my jeans don't fit either.

  41. 41

    Girl I LOVE how real you are! I've been there. Eating fudge. Out of the garbage. I'm not sure I would have the strength to put it in a video…but I'm just letting you know. I'm hoping I won't be a garbage can eater for hte rest of my life…but we'll see πŸ˜›

  42. 42

    aaaaaaaaaaaaagh you gotta change the gray, too. C'mon now!

  47. 47

  48. 48

    LOL, OMG you are so stinkin' funny. Whats even funnier is I've done the SAME THING! I was laughing so ard at you and Grumpy's sitting there next to me in his chair and he's saying "you gotta be kidding me". LOL Not because of what you were saying, because I don't think he heard that, but I was laughing uncontrollably!
