Friday Favorites

This past week I experienced an amazing revelation. See, I have this love/hate relationship with my hair bc it's thin, stringy and well... half grey... but that's neither here not there. And see, I have this friend. Her name is Leslie. She is the teasing, southern poofin' queen. I could play with my hair for four hours and it look the exact same as when I started, but when Leslie does it? She can have it looking like a million bucks in two minutes. Example:

Left: Me
Right: Leslie
Y'all didn't really think I did that myself did you?
After years and years and years of trying to figure out just how she does it, I think I have found the answer... I have always had a comb and hairspray and Bumble &Bumble styling gel and the list goes on and on... but it was not until this week that I found the miracle workers for the southern poof hair impaired. I furiously message Mallory on the computer regarding what hair products she uses. (I have no idea why this was so important at the time... I could care less about my hair) Seriously, she can wake up and her hair look like she just had it done for prom. I don't understand. (You would think after 18 of years of being next door neighbors and 4 years of being roomates I would have figured out her secret by now) She explained to me that she uses Big Sexy Root Pump and Big Sexy Powder Play. See this is where one problem comes in for me. $17 for some hair products? She must think I'm crazy? Anywho, after I got over my giggles from the names of the products and the fact that I had to dish out some money, I set off to Target where I purchased the Root Pump and a Teasing comb.


This would be the picture that I text to Mallory at 7:15 a.m. on Tuesday.
Seriously, if you want a poof get you some Root Pump. I did this myself. I'm not lying. If you know me then you know this is MAJOR.

Anywho, enough about my stupid hair and on to more important things.. such as Buffalo Chicken!!! I mean is there anything better in the world than buffalo chicken? I think not. So, I am going to share with you the easiest recipe of all time.

Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken
3 lb bag of Chicken Breasts
1 Bottle of Frank's Buffalo Sauce
1 Ranch Packet
2 TBSP Butter

Put ingredients in crock pot.
Cook all day.
Shred Chicken.
Serve however you wish.

We had ours in wrap form with some lettuce, green onion and avocado. You really didn't need anything but the chicken and tortilla. You could also serve on a bun or like a taco. And since you are using buffalo sauce and not hot sauce it really isn't too spicy for those weaklings (such as my sisters) who think a bell pepper is spicy. If you like Buffalo Chicken Dip then this is for you!! (if you don't... don't tell me bc we won't be able to be friends)



  1. I hear ya sister! I cringe at the thought of spending a lot of money on hair products! I guess there's a reason they cost so much though - they get the job done & done right! Good job on le poof! I just might have to try it! Have a good weekend chicka!

  2. Cal - this is the perfect recipe for my mother-in-laws surprise weekend trip to visit ! thanks for sharing it : )

  3. My hair miracle has come in the form of that EXACT SAME COMB!!! If you want to save money and still get a lot of volume, I use TreSemme' 24 Hour Body Mousse. I put it all over my hair while wet and comb it through. Blow dry, and your hair is huge. After a good tease and some rollers or a curling iron, I'm amazed at the difference. Also, trying that recipe this weekend! Yum!!

  4. I need some root pump and buffalo chicken! I definitely need a teasing comb! I want my hair to look like it's from Jersey honey! I have that same fine, limp hair like you.

  5. Love your volume! Very nicely done! :) And that buffalo chicken is a favorite of ours! We make it the same way and usually serve it on Sister Schubert rolls. YUM! :)

  6. Way to go with the Southern poof :) That chicken recipe sounds SO good! I just think I might make it next week! Thanks for sharing!

  7. I'm going to buy that root lifter asap. My hair is so FLAT! And that recipe sounds delicious :)

  8. I LOOOVE both of those products and I don't travel too far with out my teasing comb...it is a necessary item!

  9. Big Sexy Hair Root Pump is my BFF on the weekends! I don't have time for all that shiz during the week : ) You did a great job!!

  10. I bought that comb tonight! Will report how it works when I get to use it! :)

  11. You are so precious with your poof! Ha. Love it. I too have a problem doing hair. Most the time it's down, straight, and flat... Zero body. And I'll even buy the products and then not use them. I'm terrible.
