Redemption Has Occured!

So I was a complete looser of a host at the last Halloween party I threw so I had to redeem myself. I had no intention of blogging until Monday but this I had to share.:D
Games AND crafts!

Mummy Pizzas

mOnStEr MoUtHs
Icky BLOODY Fingers
(ketsup still needed to be added-ew!)

Ginormous Cheetos that turn your mouth nasty colors like blue and green.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to all my Mummy friends who stayed and help with the party!

Note to Self: Next year, order pizza!

Hurry up! Someone nominate me for the "Mummy of the Year" award before I start feeding my children Top Ramen and and Skittles for dinner again.

May you have a safe and fun Halloween!

P.S. What kind of candy do you steal from your children's trick-or-treat bag?

Two more Halloween parties to host (I promise I won't be late to my own party this time!), in-laws coming to visit, another Mrs. Princess Pookie jewelry show and a new computer to learn how to use. You do the math! I just might be picking out my own coffin after this weekend. coffins come in pink?:D No more excuses! See you next week for a whole new Mrs. Princess Pookie blogging experience. You won't want to miss this one!

Happy Halloween Everyone!
P.S. In case you were wondering what the Walker family is being for Halloween, THIS will give you an idea.

It's Trendy Tuesday...Do You Dare?'s true. The oxford shoe is making (or maybe I should say "has made") a comeback in a big way. When I was probably the 7th grade I was just getting to where I could fit into my sister's shoes. And low and behold what did she have hiding in her closet? A pastel pink pair of oxfords. I remember sneaking into her closet to try them on and being so excited that they finally fit. As I grew I eventually obtained a few pairs for myself. Brown, navy, my own pair of pastel pink. Yes, I enjoyed a good oxford back in the day.

So, do you dare? I actually would totally wear THESE.
P.S. What ya gonna be for Halloween? You've only got 4 more days!

I'm Still Alive

No I didn't get lost in the shoe section at Barney's (I wish though)
No I didn't have a tragic waxing experience that made me go in hiding
No my handsome Prince Charming didn't whisk me away to Bermuda (hint hint)
No I didn't have emergency surgery like I did exactly a year ago (remember the ovary fiasco?)
No I didn't win the lottery and move my family to a European village
and No I'm not dead!
But I am happy to announce that Mrs. Princess Pookie FINALLY got a new computer over the weekend. So, never fear, more Mrs Princess Pookie fashion sharing is near! Oh ya...and that surprise I've been talking about for weeks's still on it's way! I bet you can't wait to find out what it is! (Don't get too excited:D)

I've missed you all and I hope you have a spooktacular week ahead!

Birthday Bliss

Wait, that's it? It's over already? What a ripper! Actually it turned out to be a lovely weekend. Besides the hair that was in my food at our church Halloween party~ook~it's still haunting me! Thank you for all the Happy Birthday wishes everyone. My computer once again hates me. Yes, the same computer that has been giving me fits for months now that I despise but am so dependant on. It's having a mood swing again. Maybe it's on its period or something. Stupid computer! BTW: My Lulu keeps giving me the using the word "stupid" lecture. Bad Mommy!

Welcome back Monday. I didn't really miss you.:D

P.S. That surprise I keep talking about is still on its way!!

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

Fabulous Halloween Fashions!

My top three picks! What are you going to be? Let me guess. You're one of those who dresses as yourself for Halloween aren't you? BORING!!
Happy Friday Everyone!
P.S. Tomorrow's my birthday! Price charming keeps bugging me about what I want to do. NOTHING! I have been so scheduled this month that my birthday is "just another thing to do" on my already too long "to do" list. Pathetic!

Halloween Princess

I am convinced that tutu's are one of the cutest things on the face of the planet! Especially on my little Lulu! :D
And...other silly poses by the Halloween Princess

This is Lucy's signature pose with her little hands. When she talks she is so animated and she uses her little hands to describe everything. Silly Lucy! Those of you who know her know exactly what I'm talking about don't you?!

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

If you don't act quick, this trend's gonna be out of style before you know it.
It's a pumpkin carving party!
How does one fit 25 people and their ginormous pumpkins in a 1600 sq. ft. house? Physics... maybe algebra...mathematical party planning? How about who the crap knows?! Prince Charming laughs at the amount of people I invite to this event. Whatever, we make it work.

Anyway...I'm officially giving myself the "worst host of the year" award. Our pumpkin/chili pot gathering was supposed to start around the 6:00pm hour. Guess where I was at 6:02? Standing in line at the grocery store praying everyone would be late. I pulled up to my own house with guests standing on the front porch and me with the all the ingredients to the chili in hand. I AM LAME!

I meant to serve these.
Instead we (the kidos) had these. Straight from the box out of the freezer. Classy!

I had every intention of baking this. From scratch of course!

Whoopsie! It takes a lot longer to bake than I remembered. So...served these instead. Fresh from the Safeway bag. Delish.

I did serve this however. I whipped it up as the guests watched. I wasn't pitting out or anything. No, not me. I'm a professional chef remember? No pressure...really. Did I mention I have never tried this chili recipe before. Nice! Thank goodness I had the savory corndogs as a back up plan! YUM.

Hmm...I guess it turned out okay after all. Go Figure?!

Lu's Halloween party fashion. This is the pumpkin party pose. So she told me.

The Masterpieces
OH Maid...Don't forget to get the seeds that fell under the table and are stuck on the sea grass rug. Thanks!
Hop to it. I predict a pumpkin carving party in your future. Suggestion: You might want to be home to answer the door when your guests arrive.:D
Thanks to all who came!

The Eensy Weensy Spider

My weekend creation.
1. I LOVE Halloween
2. I LOVE headbands
3. I LOVE this Halloween headband.
It looks pretty stinkin cute on my Lulu. I'd wear it too btw. I would have taken a pic of her wearing but then I would have had to wake her up and nothing in this life is worth waking a sleeping child. Okay, so maybe for a fire know what I mean.
Want me to make you an eensy weensy spider? $1000 bucks and it's yours! Going once, going twice...sold to the crazy lady in the Jimmy Choo shoes.
Happy Monday my cyber friends!
P.S. 5 more days til my birthday. If any of you are in need of a gift idea just let me know. I'm happy to share my wish list with you. :D

My Current State...Sorry

Poor Me

Overwhelmed, overworked and exhausted. See you tomorrow!

For Your Lil' Punkin!

Absolutely darling!

If you have a little pumpkin may I suggest ordering her a pair of these cutie patooties? They are by Puddle Jumpers. My Lu had a pair of red dots when she was a tot. I'm currently eying the yellow. What's your favorite flavor? They are good quality and filled with personality. You and your little one will love them!

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

Create your own Halloween decor trendiness....I dare you!
Step 1: Find cheap junk frames and paint them black. Are you in need of a junk frame? My garage is full of them. Come on over!

Step 2: (a) Witch Hat: Cut a witch hat out of black construction paper. I folded a white piece of paper in 1/2 and cut out hat on fold. Once I got the witch hat I was looking for I traced it full size on the construction paper. I wanted to do an owl too but I got too lazy. That would mean I would have to cut out eyes and that's too complicated for me.


(b) Eek!: Take a white piece of paper and write Eek! on it. Now that was technical. I used a permanent marker.

Polka dot your pumpkins! (This was not my idea, I stole it from a magazine that I paid a freaking $8 for~lame! For the record, I did try to use a coupon but the "fine print" would not allow. Stupid coupons! Stupid fine print. Have I mentioned that I HATE the coupon game?) I used craft paint. And everything is much more special with a ribbon tied around it. Don't you think? :D

I don't care how convenient these cookies are. They taste like nasty crap! Mom will you please send us a batch of your delectable pumpkin sugar cookies?

One of the rare occasions we actually used the dining table in the dining room.


Happy Halloween decorating to you.

Coming soon to a blog near you. My Pottery Barn wannabe porch. It didn't turn out 1/2 bad after all. All I need is something to hang on the door. Anyone have any great suggestions?

Mrs. Princess Pookie's Social Calendar

Personal shopper at your service!
Hi! My name is Ryan and my aunt (Mrs. Princess Pookie) is the hippest chick on the block. So, since she {thinks} she knows a thing or two about fashion and dresses super cool all the time ;D, I begged her on my hands and knees to take me shopping. You see, I'm off to college soon and I need to be looking "Oh so handsome"! BTW: Sorry ladies, I'm taken!
Where do you think Mrs. Pincess Pookie would take me?
On your mark, get set, go!
I'm fairly certain she made me try on every article of clothing in my size that existed in the store!

This is what little cousins do while waiting in the dressing room!

I was thinking this. Comfy, practical, affordable...right?
(He really didn't pick these up for real. NOTE: If I could ban one style of man shoe on the face of the planet they would be these. Along with aqua socks that is. Sorry Dad!)
Boy was I wrong! Apparently these are much more hip! Of course, my aunt would know. She is always right!

This is what an uncle and the other cousin does while waiting.

(AND...many more great pics could have been taken but I was on a mission in a very limited amount of time.)

One pair of jeans, 2 button downs, 3 t-shirts, one argyle sweater and a pair of comfy but oh-so-cool tennis shoes! Thanks to Nordstrom and the Rack.

Thank you Aunt Jo Dee! You are the best, most coolest, awesomest, fashion forward aunt in the whole wide world! And your meatloaf rocks!
(If Ryan had really written this I'm pretty sure he would have said all these things:D)

Men's Fall Essentials: Good jeans (we like Mavi-under $100!), funky colored tennis shoes, a couple rad T's and an argyle sweater.

Good Luck at college Ryan and congrats on your BYU Idaho acceptance letter. May you always have a little GQ within and remember, it's okay for a man to appreciate a little froof. :D

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

It's an orangish kind of day. Or maybe we should call it tangerine?!

I would totally sport this handbag and I'm sure I could find a window to fancy up with these curtains!

Maybe a bit pumpkin-like but I'd still wear it!
Knock, knock!
Who's there?
Orange who?
ORANGE you glad to see me?

Welcome Princesses to the color ORANGE

Let me be honest. I have never favored the color orange. I have never given the color orange the time of day. In fact, I'm sure it's a color that is feeling very left out in my closet. However, when my friend showed up with an orange handbag awhile back, I reevaluated (sp?) the happy hue. Even though I still have yet to make a boldy orangy purchase, I do give it a second glance now. How about you? Are you an orange lover or hater? THESE or THESE could be a great introduction to my new orange collection. CUTE!

Happy Friday. Go buy something orange!

P.S. Check back next week for tips on how to "winterize" that summer maxi dress.

P.S. The surprise I said that was's still coming!:D
