Patch Time

My BFF and I took a quick trip to our favorite pumpkin patch. We were the only ones there. Peace, love and pumpkin selection galore!

Spooner Farms has an excellent variety!

Pumpkins for my Pottery Barn wannabe porch. I'll let you know how it turns out. Knowing my luck, probably ghetto.

WHEN I get window boxes on my house I'm totally doing this.

If you live in my neck of the woods and haven't taken the opportunity to visit a pumpkin patch in the Orting valley, it's definitely worth the roadtrip. Advice: DON'T go on a Saturday!
We like Spooner Farms for lots of variety and cute gift shop, Scholz Farms for carving pumpkins (or Walmart:D~cheap!) and Maris Farms for activities. Click HERE and scroll to Pierce Co. for more info.
Happy pumpkin hunting!

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

I opened up my new issue of Family Circle (not sure why I get this magazine) and low and behold...straight from page 96 it reads:

When one of my friends tells me she doesn't have the right bag or shoes to go with something I say, "Good." Nothing ages a woman more than having everything matchy-matchy. Opt for footwear in a contrasting color or carry a clutch in a fun pattern that complements but doesn't compete. I guarantee you'll get noticed.

Thank you Linda for reminding all my princess friends of the matchy-matchy rule! But, you forgot to mention the matchy-matchy nail polish and lipstick. :D

Bag + shoes= perfect non matchy-matchy combo for fall
It's Friday...Let's Go Shopping!

Easy As Pie

Dinner Idea
Fat full but the ease is so worth it!
Ingredients: Cooked chicken, crescent rolls, chive cream cheese
Step 1: Cook chicken (I use 2 breasts~firm and perky of course!) I add salt, pepper and garlic.

Step 2: Open crescent rolls. Make sure to scream when they unexpectedly "POP" open and smear with chive cream cheese.
You with me so far?

Step 3: Place cooked chicken at wide end of crescent roll and...ROLL!
(Is it just me or could this potentially be a diagram of the female parts? Whoops, there goes the appetite~sorry!)

Step 4: Bake according to the crescent roll directions.
Voila! (just for you Mimi)
Note: I use two crescent roll packages (8 per package), about 3/4 of the tub of cream cheese and 2 chicken breasts. This feeds my family and leaves enough for me to have lunch the next day.
Serve with a veggie out of the can and a side of applesauce. Fancy!
Be sure to wear THIS while baking!

Gift Idea: Pair this book with a pair of dress~up shoes for the little princess in your life.

It's Trendy Tuesday...Do You Dare?

Crossbody Bags (Not to be confused with body bags!) They're making their way back to everyone's handbag collection in a fiercely stylish way. Practical enough for day and cute enough for night~LOVE them! Gone are the days of the boring basic black Edie Bauer practical crossbody bag. You know, the one you used during your college days or bought for your European adventure. This season's crossbody bags are so dang cute, much more comfy to carry and will discreetly hide any onsie that has been unexpectedly pooped on~crap!
If I were a gazillionaire you better believe I'd be owning the Marc Jacobs crossbody bag featured on the left! It's AMAZING. I had to go see it in person and try it on for size. It's only $498...what a steal.;)

P.S. I'm in love with THIS coin purse. 'Whoo' wouldn't be?

I Am NOT Feeling Sorry For Myself!

At approx. 8:30am yesterday morning my husband loaded himself into this private jet.

At Approx. 9:15am the private jet flight attendant served my husband this breakfast.

Where was I while all this was happening? At home, with the children, the laundry (which has once again exploded all over my house) a sink full of nasty dishes and the reality of my so-called life. You know what really sucks? I was invited to go~ Stupid reality!

To My Prince:

I sure hope you're enjoying yourself. I'll be thinking of you while dealing with "our" life at home.

xoxo, Mrs. Princess Pookie

P.S. Roses would be nice.

AND THE WINNER PULLED OUT OF THE HAT IS...Tiffany! Thanks for playing friends.

Fancy Fingers For ME

Check it out! I finally took some time to visit this really amazing salon and do something for myself. The name of the salon was Kitchon Princess (aka my kitchen). Princesses, you have to try these crazy nails out. These ain't no Lee Press-Ons that's for sure! Speaking of Lee Press-On nails. My fifth grade teacher use to wear them and we'd find them on the floor in the classroom. Hee hee!

Anyway...I read about these in a magazine and everything they said about them is TRUE. No one (my peeps) could tell that they weren't done in a professional salon. No one! Even after examining up close. They were super easy to apply (note: use lots of pressure to get all air bubbles out), I did it all by myself- even my right hand-and for about $6 I had pretty fingernails. I picked my set up at Target but you can get them in any drug store. They are extra thin (not nearly as chunky as the acrylics you get at the salon) and come in several lengths and sizes. I wore mine for about four days and then they came right off. For a quick little pick-me-up you gotta try these out. I got the glue-on ones. They do come in stick-on but I didn't want to chance it.:D Brand: KISS

First Day of School
I meant to post these long ago.

These two little twerps kissed and made up. Ya know, the pic from yesterday? The one on my son's door that you all thought was his way of telling me to "bug off". That little love note was for his sister because he needed some "alone" time. Gees, I wonder where he's heard that before?

Conclusion: Find some "alone" time and turn your nails into wonderous works of art!

Just Another Day In Paradise

I'll give you ONE guess as to what this might mean.
I love my children. I love my children. I love my children.

It's Trendy Tuesday...Do You Dare?

It's an ETSY Trendy kind of day. I found these stellar items on Etsy last night. The name of the shop is Vivid Colors. Click on over and take a peek at all the lovely items this shop has to offer. I LOVE what this designer has done....beautimus! AND the promo in the shop until Oct. 1 is BOGO~like Payless shoes. Who doesn't love a great SALE.


Ooh la la I'm drooling over these (above) necklaces. Flowers around the neck are a big thing right now princesses. These ones are so romantic. The perfect creative touch to any TRENDY outfit. How would I wear one? Black button down shirt with a delicate sleeve, pencil skirt...hmm...tweed maybe, with funky legwear and THESE shoes! I think it's time to go shopping!

Come on. Don't be so boring. Wearing something TRENDY today!

Live your life as you
Dream big, believe in yourself and make something happen today. (Even if it's just taking a shower before 3pm~hee hee.) I know you can do it!
When I grow up I wanna be.....
I discovered this quote over the weekend so I wanted to share. May we all take a moment to dig within ourselves and find our imaginations again. You may not currently be on the path you once "imagined" but I truly believe that we all have ability to create that life we once imagined and mold it to fit our current life situation. Princesses, we can have our chocolate cake and eat it too. It's called a nanny....kidding!:D
Happy Monday...all over again.

Happy Birthday Mr. Walker

To My Prince,

May we continue to love each other through all the wrinkles (both), thinning hairs (you) and saggy boobs (me). I love you to the moon and back. Happy Birthday To You!

Mrs. Princess Pookie

BTW: His birthday isn't until Sunday but in our house when your birthday falls on a weekend, we believe in celebrating birthday "weekends".

Dude...You Totally CUT!

Dear Man standing in line at Target,

Please accept my apology for my inappropriate behavior while standing in line last night. It is not your fault that I chose to take my children out beyond the bedtime hour. It is not your fault that I had to go to Target in the first place because my children have been wearing the same underwear for two days now due to the fact that I have been out of laundry detergent. And it is not your fault that the Target workers strategically place toys in the checkout area to annoy Mommy's who are tired and in a hurry. Please forgive me.

Mrs. Princes Pookie

P.S. For the record...I was in line first!;)

This doesn't happen everyday!


It's a day certainly worth celebrating! How about with a little shopping!? You could purchase a hip new polish like this (pic. right) It's el chico not el freako~trust me! Moms... wear this and your teenage daughter won't think you're an el geeko! Ya, I don't really like to brag but I've been taking Spanish.;D

P.S. It's coming! I'm feeling another give away just around the corner and I'm feeling awfully generous too. How about THIS?

P.S.S. OMG! (That's Oh my gosh.) I am eating the most lusciously, divine nectarine right now. I'm pretty sure it's better ya...this is a G rated blog. ;D Trader Joe's princesses. Go buy some! $4.99 a box.

P.S.S.S.S. I'm still enjoying the Love Boat theme. Humor me for another day or so.

It's Trendy Tuesday...Do You Dare?

The perfect scent for fall...

Unconditional Love
by Philosophy

Sweet, simple, light, soulful, pleasing and warm for the fall season. This is my new scent of choice for the change in weather. I discovered it in mid July and got all three products (perfume, shower gel, lotion) in a very reasonably priced gift pack. I just pulled it out this last week and I love it. Click HERE to learn more about this olfactory delight. Philosophy produces really excellent products. Their shower gel is DEFINITELY worth a try and you may have heard of THIS little wonder. Excellent stuff! Smells wierdish, but excellent stuff! Speaking of LOVE, anyone ever watch THIS show? Vicki and Gofer (was that his name?) were my favorites! Memories....

P.S. "Real love stories never end.":D

Cake Shmake...

I had my cake and ate it too. Maybe even a little too much.
Ah crap! I only meant to take one bite. Stupid "evening it out" rule.
So our local Safeway sells these "single serving" cake in a box things that strategically sit near the check out area. This pic. doesn't do it justice but this "single serving" ain't "no single" serving people. It's HUGE. And before you know it you've eaten the whole flippin thing...for dinner.

Stupid yummy cake!

Here's and idea. Wear THESE the next time you eat cake. ADORABLE! And maybe you'll want to go exercise after you've eaten the "single serving" cake. That or take a nap!

YaY...and a bit BoO

AND...We're back! YAY and BOO (but mostly yay:D)
Like the rest of the Mommy's on the face of the planet I've been consumed with back to school preparations. NOTE TO SELF: Do not wait until the day before the first day of school to get school supplies. DUMB! DUMB! DUMB! Do you think my son will hold it against me that I sent him to school with a Hannah Montana 2 pocket folder?

Cool shoes=cool kids! Right? Who cares if they have bed head and haven't bathed for 4 days! It's all about the shoes.

Our first day of school footwear.

Happy Back To School Mommy's!!!

P.S. I had great intentions of doing cool fall stuff on my blog but who am I kidding~children consume every inch of life out of me. TIME? What's that?
