Gotta be honest...have better things to do today than blog. Like... getting my haircut (YES!) and celebrating the Welcome March fever with a mint milkshake (YUM!).

Life sucks but happy is always somewhere to be found.

And last but certainly not least....SUNSHINE! (A rarity where I live.)

What was I thinking?

Give me an F
Give me an A
Give me a T
What does that spell...UGH!

My meal log:
8:20am: Cinnamon roll
12:25 pm: Corndog with cherry lemon aide
3:50 pm: Cowboy cookies
7:00 pm Loaded baked potato soup-emphasis on LOADED!
7:05 pm, 7:20 pm, 7:35 pm and possibly one last bite around 8:00 pm:
Chips and guac
(Warning: Put chips and guac in front of me...there will be none left for you.)
10:30pm: Ginormous red velvet cupcake
Anyone got any Tums?
P.S. Speaking of guacamole, THIS cracks me up.

You Decide

Yes or No?

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

Are you addicted?
Polish? Nail art? Glue-on jewels? Nails that are TOO LONG? Grody! The days of the lightening bolts, swiggles and palm trees are OVER. Long and square...bye bye. Short and slightly rounded...welcome home. A dainty flower on a freshly pedicured toe=cute. A jingle bell and holly=Ho Ho NO! I can say I do love a fun polish. (Especially when someone else does it for me.) Short and simple is my preference. Dark colors are hot but, on long nails, a big fat NOT! And my biggest pet peeve~ those who sport nails at varying lengths. If one breaks, give it up and cut the rest.



(It seems as though people with nails like this enjoy wearing a plethora of rings as well.)

My advice: KISS
(keep it simple sistas)
Is this a guy?

Welcome to Crap Land

My life has officially been crapped on. Last week was anything but a bowl of cherries. More like rotten cherries. From paint drama to a sleepless night at my sisters house due to the paint drama, nothing seemed to work in my favor. Wait, did I mention the icing on the red velvet cake? A traffic violation ticket that arrived in the mail on Saturday with my name on it. I'll spare you all the "life is not fair" details BUT...LIFE IS NOT FAIR. A camera giving $124 ticket? Welcome to America! Stupid camera tickets. Stupid UPS guy for making me drive to Fife, camera ticket place, to pick up my package that he didn't deliver.

So, instead of buying this absolutely gorgeous handbag (pic below), I get to pay for our law enforcement's donuts and coffee. (That was a joke.)

Under normal circumstances I really should end a post such as this with the bright side. Well to heck with the bright side. Quite frankly I'm not in the mood. I'm grouchy, my house is a disaster zone and my 3 yr old just peed her pants. That's nothing to make lemon aide out of. Right?

Wrong. Yes, life can be rotten but... My hardwood floor got laid. YEAH! I had a successful closet cleaning session. HOORAY! (It's pretty now. All our hangers match and I have fancy shoe boxes for all my shoes thanks to Costco.) And I am married to the best Prince in Never Never land. LOVE you.

May your cherries not go rotten this week!

P.S. I'm still pissed about the ticket!

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

To those of us who pretend to be fancy...
To those of us who fake it til we make it...
To those of us who deserve a little glam...

I introduce to you the decal chandi.
And most importantly...AFFORDABLE.
Happy Fancy Fashionable Friday!
P.S. These decals are all over I actually found mine at Marshalls.
It makes me happy. Where to hang it? Entryway, bathroom, laundry room,
walk in closet, anywhere!

Life is delightful when you find the perfect pair of red shoes.
Gracias to those who bought my jewels last weekend so that I could justify this purchase!:D
P.S. THESE are absolutely to die for too! I want green.
(I can't find a link to my shoes on line. That and I'm too lazy to search. I got them at Nords but the red had to be special ordered. They are Miz Mooz. Adore this brand.)

Fresh Spring Face

M.A.C. has some gorgeous new colour palates for spring! Check em out.

I picked up a shadow from the pink palate. It's that time of year to invest in a new cosmetic. How about a new gloss? You deserve it!

Pure Beauty

Handbag Heaven. Let me take the pleasure in introducing you to some of the most gorgeous handbags on the face of the planet. My Prince and I had a V-day date in Seattle and he allowed me take a moment to pretend like we're rich and stroll through the VALENTINO handbags. When I win the lottery you better believe I'm bying one for myself. They are amazing. Heart failure causing expensive but absolutely amazing!
HOT PINK hottie

Absolutely flowery fabulousness

Black patent with a bow. Dainty darling!

This one is my fav. I really really really really really want it! Honestly, even if I could afford it I think I'd feel guilty spending that much money on a stupid bag. OR....maybe not!:D
Happy chillin' President's Day.

"Dazzle me". That's all that comes to mind right now.


Happy {HEART} Day everyone!

P.S. I can't believe I'm admitting this but v-day isn't just for the ladies...ladies. Share the love.

Speaking of jewelry, you can come see my jewelry here.

Household Wishing

#5 Benjamin Moore "Bird Nest"
It only took 5 times.
Phase II of our remodel has (sorta) begun. There are days when I want to throw a match at my house and be done. Then there are days when I adore the character (and potential) it beholds. Like my Mother always says...Patience my dear, patience. "Whateva" Mr. Patience. Go find someone else to pick on!

Walls painted. Check. Hardwood floors ordered. Check. Find painter for the ceiling. Check. (Normally I would take on the ceiling project myself but, I'd rather live to see the next Nordstrom sale. It's two stories high and on an angle. Death wish!) Drool over the coolest ceiling fans ever that I can't afford. Check. (pic below)
Stay tuned. More pics to come.
Are you bored? Today is the day to start a project. Paint a wall, sew a pillow, hang curtains.
Or...if you're like me I'd rather take a nap!
Make it a GREAT Monday!

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

And the winner is...
Comment #7
Congrats! e-mail me at I would LOVE to get your goodies to your before the Holiday of LOVE.
Thanks for playing everyone.
Now on to FFF
{Warning: I realize I'm about ready to offend 1/2 of the Mormon population. Please know I do it with love.:D}

The DENIM jumper...

Some may argue... Comfy, versatile, easy, low maintenance. Others... Frumpy, styleless, shapeless, boring, sister to the mom-jean.

I shall not reveal how I truly feel about the denim jumper. I will say though that my Mother owns one. She's in her 70's. Her homey's are the Sunbirds in AZ. I rest my case. I am not passing judgement. No way, not me. Mostly, I am just here to make an alternative suggestion to those who may be addicted to the denim frumper.

My pet peeve is when cute princesses (of ALL ages) get stuck. They get stuck in an era, they get stuck in a style, they get stuck in laziness, they get stuck in "comfort" land. I will say this over and over and over again.

The denim jumper pic above costs 59.00. The denim dress pic below costs 49.95. HA! Told ya! You don't have to be a millionaire to have a little style and class.

THIS denim dress (above) has personality. I would wear it. It says, "Hey, look at me. I like functionality but, I also care about what I look like." It's feminine. It's modest. It's practical. It's CUTE! It will have everyone telling you you look adorable.

Plain and simple. If a denim jumper is a staple in your wardrobe I challenge you to give it up. Give it hugs and kisses and then cut it up and make a quilt out of it. Don't sell yourself short. There's bigger and better out there for you. Run. Go find it. It's waiting for you!

Happy Friday.

P.S. I am not a denim hater. I just bought THIS the other day.

P.S.S. THESE shoes would be perfect paired with denim.

Da Bomb

These little LOVE notes were waiting for me on my nightstand when I went to bed last night.
"Please pack me lunch tomorrow. I want spaghetti."
My son is the BOMB. He cracks me up!
AND...this new product is the BOMB!
{click pic for more dets}
I absolutely LOVE Benefit products. If you are not familiar with them do yourself a favor and get to know them. This Sugarbomb is the perfect mix of bronzer, shimmer and glowing cuteness all wrapped up into one tiny little package. (Scared of the price? It lasts FOREVER!)
Recommendation: You will enjoy this product more if you use a brush like THIS instead of the one provided. I'm generally not a picky cosmetic brush person but THIS style of brush is the "bomb". I have the Benefit version and use it daily.
Don't forget to enter the give away. (yesterday's post)
All blog stalkers invited to enter as well!:D

On another note...
Prince Charming just walked in the door and said, "Can I just tell you that I love you. You are such a great wife. You are a great gal."

He had me at I love and you're a great wife. The "gal" part I could have done without.
(Maybe I should mention he told me this after I scolded him for leaving a bag of wet towels at the front door. Hence the "gal" addition to get me back. Cheeky sucker!)
