Pucker Up For Pineapple

Let me introduce you to my favorite fruit.

Eating this fruit makes me happy and brings sunshine to my tummy. I LOVE IT!
Next, let me introduce you to a fetish I have. Aprons. However, I only actually own one that I purchased at IKEA who knows how many years ago??

I think I'm truly going to add this to my non-existent apron collection. I LOVE IT A LOT!

AND...naturally this would fit quite nicely into place as well. I LOVE IT TOO!
Hmmm...I'm craving pineapple now. Ooh about the Dole pineapple ice cream from the tiki shack at Disneyland. I REALLY REALLY LOVE THAT!
Do you LOVE pineapple as much as me?
Doubt it!

P.S. You must download the song playing "Pineapple Princess" Yep...LOVE it.
P.S.S. The Trendy Tuesday handbags came from HERE.

The Easter Devil

First of all...let me say sorry for my blogging boringness. What can I say? I've been busy. Busy eating chocolate!


These little freaks were invented by the chocolate devil. Funny little fact. I wouldn't particularly consider myself a "chocolate lover" but these little egg devils are divine.
Deliciously divine. Stupid chocolate eggs.

And LAST...

This is American Idol.

My Favorite contestant. She's a rock star baby!

Rock on Crystal Bowersox!

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

It's SPRING tote time. Nope, don't really need one. Yep, just fun to have a new one for the new season.

I purchased this tulip baby over the weekend. The idea is super cute but I'm totally taking it back.

Just might exchange for this unique spring cutie.

Anyone out there have any suggestions? Where to go? Not loving anything at Target. I tend to like fabric bags for spring because A) Much more affordable than leather and B) Fun color combos!

Happy new tote shopping and happy Trendy Tuesday!

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

THIS sounds like it's right up my alley!
Don't you love the silly title?

FFF Advice: Dust off the fancy shoes this weekend and wear them!
Jeans, heels, a T and a cardi. What a great idea.;D

Maybe I'll even take my own advice. I haven't worn heels in weeks.

As I searched my local bakeries yesterday for St. Patty's Day treats this (pic above) ridiculous combination in the dessert case caught my eye. Maple bar~delicious, if you're a maple bar lover that is. Bacon~doesn't everyone love bacon? (I actually don't.) Together=mini vomit in the back of my throat. Funny thing though...when I came home and shared what I had seen with Prince Charming his eyes lit up. Which totally proves that a man baker invented the baconator maple bar! SICK!

Would you eat it?

P.S. If you have 2:24 min. to spare watch THIS dude. It will make you giggle!

Stinkin' Leprechauns!

Happy St. Patty's Day!
Did the naughty leprechauns find your house today?

They TP'd our kitchen, opened EVERY door and drawer!

They crumpled Kels' homework and turned our toilet water and milk green!
(Lucy was scared to go to the bathroom.)

My naughty leprechauns!

If I was a good mom I'd whip up something like THIS for my kids.
Store bought is more my reality.:D

Are you wearing your GREEN?

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

Total fashionable comfort. Ya gotta dig it!

Slouchy cardi

Amazing neck piece

Shorty denim with cool sandals
A fun FFF!

Here's and idea...
Cute mini addition! Little braided belt around the waist of a sweater vest.
I'm pretty sure I need to add THIS to my ruffle collection. All the above can be found HERE.

It's FRIDAY. Do something fun and fashionable!
P.S. Last night we were watching TV and a maxi pad commercial came on. My 7yr old son asked, "What the heck is that for?" Before I could answer my 3 yr old daughter said, "It's a diaper for Mommies." I left it at that.;D

Funky, punky, crazy design with a lot of personality. Where to find these trendy duds?
To learn or see more click HERE.

A Lot of Nothing

Fell in love with THIS skirt.

Cried watching this movie.

Made THIS cake.

Started reading this book.
What a great weekend I had filled with exactly the things I wanted to do.
Welcome to Monday!

P.S. It's very dark and gloomy here in Washington today. I'm doing my best not to let it get me down. I hate it. Funny, the sun is an incredible drug!

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)


I took my kids to McSicko last night. That was a stupid choice. There was some kind of Mcfundraiser going on. The place was upchuck full Mcbrats. Lu spilled her Mcdrink TWICE. Yes, I said TWICE. They screwed up our Mcorder. I ate a Big Mac. Another stupid choice. Ronald McDonald showed up out of the blue and scared the crap out of all of us. (Human clowns=nightmares.) The place was so noisy my head was pounding. I hate McDonald's. And for the record, their fries suck. So why do we continue to go there? Mom's all over the world are asking the same question.

This red belt is HOT!

This trench coat was a GREAT shade of green. Adore the white hat. Paired together~FAB!

This ruffle shirt in white~Welcome spring!
I can't even remember the last time I step into The Limited (FYI: I worked there in college. Dumb job. Not a fan of retail as a career.) I had some time to kill the other day so I took a step inside. I was pleasantly surprised. Here (above) are few things I certainly could have gone home with.
Suggestion: Go buy a new white shirt-button down, T, whatever-it's time for a refresh! Oh, and throw out the old one. White needs to be recycled!
Don't you LOVE Friday? Do something for you!

Clean up vacation anyone?

Ooh! THESE storage solutions are absolutely delightful.
Do you think the Polly Pockets would get picked up if they had one of these as their home? Ha..Ha...Ha...Ha...Ha!

Let me introduce you to my new BFF. "Elvira" aka Mr. ZIT!
Anyone ever seen one of THESE fancy devices?
No, he's not big and red and pussy. Just an extra extra extra large lump in the middle of my forehead that hurts like &%@# and wants to hang out non-stop.
Anyone else have a BFF like mine?

It's quirky, it's crazy, it's color OVERLOAD and I LOVE it. As promised, here are a few pics of my new and improved living quarters.

Anybody want any Cake?
This was previously a dining room. In our puny 1600 sq. ft. house we could no longer afford to waste space on a dining room that got used twice a year. Dedicated to kid play now.

MOO! Cow skin rug from Ikea. It's cute but smelly!

Painted fire place, painted tile (both were brown). I'm sure the mantel and wall area will go through 10 more redos until I'm satisfied. For now, this will do.

Just purchased large yellow and white striped awning fabric for curtains. I will be hiding all the toys that live under the table with a tablecloth like contraption that I haven't invented yet.
(Yes, that would be a "TV" armoire that still houses our anciet TV. You won't find a savvy flat screen here. We take pride in vintage technology.)
The gigantor frame was a mirror originally (so I was told). I turned the backing over and painted with chalk board paint.

Amazing armoire that was given to me. Needs a little (okay a lot) TLC when I'm not feeling lazy.

Just slightly obsessed with oversized home accessories.
A little peak at my WHITE ceiling in the corner of this pic. It use to be brown (natural cedar)~ick!

There you have it.
There will always be an unfinished something in this house. It's my reality. I figure we're just living by the home improvement rule~It's never complete til the day you move out. :D
