Welcome BOO (hoo) land

Holy crap! It's October 1. How did that happen? Don't tell my kids. I totally forgot. I'm supposed to start the month off with nasty cereal and Halloween decor. Maybe they won't remember. (right!) After school snack instead? Why do I do this to myself? Start "traditions". Let's face it. Starting traditions is just setting yourself up for failure. Truly! See ya...gotta hit a Target! Good thing I adore my children. Oh yes, and I LOVE Halloween!
Have a superb weekend!

P.S. HERE'S a little dose of FFF for you and HERE'S a little dose of FFF for me.

The Cutest EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Today I will be visiting the bank to take a second mortgage out on my house so that I can have THIS coat. They give loans for outerwear right?

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

Remember how I mentioned the wallpaper gig for my new powder room?


A) I am having absolutely NO luck finding something I heart.
B) What I do adore is pricey (of course!)
C) Takes forever to get to my front door. Not good for a woman with no patience.
D) I'm sure if I get my hands on it it will turn out crappy and then I would have to cry.
E) Not in the mood.

So instead...

After a random search I have discovered the following:

Choice #1

Choice #2

Choice #3

Choice #4
HELP! Which design should I choose? The bathroom will be painted bright yellow and I think I will do the decals white. So? Which pattern should I get? Seriously people, you need to help a crazy pregnant lady out.
Want some of your own? Click HERE!

Today I Will...

Conquer this disaster.

Decide if these boots are "all that and a bag of chips" or take them back and just go buy a bag of chips~Salt and Vinegar please!

Get over it and quit pretending like these roses still have life in them.

Demand that Prince Charming work on this project.
He loves it when I get demanding. (love you!)


Prepare something for dinner other than waffles or cold cereal (maybe).

What WILL you do today?
It's Monday again, deal with it!
P.S. Because I'm so awesome I didn't go anywhere near creating Friday's project with my children over the weekend. I'm pretty sure they still love me though.

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

Fashion 'tude...
Today I roll my eyes and say "whatever" to fashion. My wardrobe as of late has consisted of pajamma bottoms and Prince Charming's T's~fancy! You know you're in bad shape when you start growing out of maternity clothes. Kill me now!

I shall pay attention to my children and promise (that's a big word!) to take time to create these little creatures with them over the weekend. My kids LOVE anything to do with arts and crafts. THESE I can handle. Maybe. If it doesn't include spilled milk generally I'm okay.:)

Foliage Friends. Kinda cute huh?
Welcome Fall!
Don't you just love the fall?
It's Fall. It's Friday. It's Fabulous!

Ooh Goody Goody!

Hello Mr. Package. I have patiently been awaiting your arrival! So glad you found my front porch. Sorry Mr. Toilet and Ms. Vanity were not here to welcome you. They had an appointment.

What might be inside you?

Oh boy....another box.
Note to self: Get rid of this box before the children get home. Disaster waiting to happen!

Oh, I see an ear.

Oh, I see a dear.

Oh I am so happy that you made it. I take it you had a safe journey?

Not to worry. I will take care of you forever and forever.

And I have the perfect spot for you to join our family.
Welcome to your Home Sweet Home (above the fireplace).
Now I just need to get some friends to join you.
Okay so you either think I've completely lost my mind for buying this peculiar house decor or you hate my guts because you want one for yourself.:)
Click HERE to add one of these beauts to your decorating motif.

Tuesday, September 21, 2010


Although I have grown accustomed to your company on the front porch, I wish you a better life in dump land. Bye bye Mr. Toilet and Ms. Vanity. It's been real.
Now if I could only make a decision on wallpaper. Yep, you heard me. I'm going back to the 70's/80's and wallpapering. Good thing I've never wallpapered before. Good times ahead I'm sure.
Wish me luck.

FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

It's a fabulous fashion FRUITY Friday.
Due to the condition of my ridiculous body type (fat and pregnant) I have been very limited (especially as of late) in being able to express myself through my attire. So, here go the nails. Look at these little decals I found at Sally. Mini fruities~oh so cutie! Don't look too close though cuz you'll probably see sheet impressions. I did this late at night. Also, warning...if you have a lame husband like me he may tell you the color on your nails looks like squash. What does he know? What's in the fruit bowl for next week? Lime green with strawberries. Stay tuned.
It's the weekend. YIPEE!

I'm Thinking...

Red Bow

Funky Dress

Whimsy Socks

Trendy Shoes

Equals an outfit fit for a funky princess!
Oh how I cannot wait for normal clothes again!

Love Letter

Dear Prince Charming,

When you are out of town I tend to stay up late. Like way past my bedtime late. I feed the children naughty food for dinner. I rearrange the furniture~twice. I make a mess on the kitchen table. Wait, there's always a mess on the kitchen table so nevermind that. I just make it messier. I watch stupid TV. And sometimes I shop. Remember when I called you yesterday morning at 8:30am to ask you a random question? Well when you get home you may (or may not) find something like THIS (or not) hanging above our fireplace (or not). Just wanted to let you know because I LOVE you.

Come home soon!


P.S. I did NOT move "your" chair. Okay so maybe just a little but not to worry, you can still see the TV. Sorta.

P.S.S. Hey everyone else reading this. Think my purchase is crazy strange? (My BFF thought so too.) What can I say, living a less ordinary life! My life!

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

"Have a life less ordinary."
I found this card at a darling trendy little boutique in the Freemont district (Seattle) where I visited over the weekend.

It absolutely perfectly describes the life I try (at least sometimes try) to live.

Stuck in a life rut?

Here's a new TREND. Try something less ordinary!
Here are a few ideas to maybe make your brain go Hmmm.....??

~Stop the matchy matchy in your life. Wear orange and pink!
~ Be brave today. Get over yourself and do that thing you've wanted to try.
~Skip the dishes tonight and make a fort with your kids.
~Eat donuts and milk for dinner.
~Say NO to something you would usually say YES to (or vice versa).
~Love yourself. (Even if you're ginormously pregnant with an extra large muffin top and feel like pooh with a zit smack in the middle of your forehead. I'm just saying.)
~ Wear fancy shoes to something boring.

Happy Trendy Tuesday All!

It's Your Birthday!

Dear Prince Charming,
You may be getting older but I adore you always and forever. And although there supposedly seems to be no such thing as perfect, I think you are as perfect as can be.
I love you to the moon and back.
Come home so I can kiss you.
FYI: My hubs is out of town. He spends his birthday out of town often. I think we should consider changing his b-day. Who would know?:)

And She's Off...

Here I sit listening to the clock tick. Eating dessert~first~on the couch (rebel). Doing whatever the heck I want. No Disney channel in the background, no arguing, no obligations to take care of someone else first. Freedom! Let the freedom ring! Today is Lucy's first day of school and my first day of three hours of FREEDOM. Unfortunately that freedom is only going to last a couple more weeks until baby comes along but I shall enjoy every minute of it while it lasts.
And...not feel a single bit guilty about it!
Have to say though....a little creepy how the time flies. She's big enough for school?
Funny how that happens right before your eyes.
Lucy's first day of school.

Decorating her room before going to school. Anyone want to hire her?:D

Drawing pictures while patiently waiting for school to start. These are the step sisters and Cinderella. She keeps hanging her works of art on our front door. When I asked her why she said, "So I don't forget the story Mom."

It's FRIDAY girls...enjoy the weekend!

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

A little glass collection I picked up at the antique store last week.

Master Bath: Paint (check) Towels (check) Rug (check) Potential Wall Art-no that is not a vintage Playboy. (check)

I have no idea what this is but it seemed like a great thing to hang my necklaces. No! It won't be sitting on the floor. It needs to be hung! Another antique store find.

I've been busy with a new gig. Yep, I'm a professional blogger~ha ha.
Click HERE for a cute give away!
TREND: Step outside of your boring box and do something different with your home decor! It's really not as hard as you think it is. I promise!

Happy Labor Day Weekend.

Oh Mr. September

And we're back.
Fresh crayons, new markers~all with lids:), jumbo pink erasers, a brand new sharpened pencil...welcome back to school.
I love new school supplies.
When I went to school we used pencil boxes. The ones made out of cardboard and everyday I remember "organizing" it to fit everything just perfectly. Now days you show up the first day, the teacher has bins and everything belongs to everyone. I'm pretty sure Kelson's teacher has enough pencils to build a small condo on the East side.
BTW I still don't know what a flair pen is. Sorry Ms. Ashley!
This is NOT the look of "Mom...seriously? My friends are watching".

"Oh Snap"
Lulu didn't start school today (she starts pre-school next week). However, she was up and ready to go before the rest of us. Oh the poses she pulls. Maybe she'll be the one to make us a million. Maybe I should send her to Barbizon.:D
Looking forward to routine, "official" bedtime and less sibling fighting.
Welcome September!

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

I want it!
I love it!
I need it!
Aliens will invade the universe if I don't get it!
ANIMAL is back! However, did it ever leave?
THIS bag is rockin' my handbag world. Too bad it'll take like 25 birthday's to justify the stupid thing!
Dear Santa , Easter Bunny, Mr. Valentine, Leprechaun Dude, Tooth Fairy....Mom??
I need THIS bag. Please?
Mrs. Princess Pookie
