2011 Here We Come

Happy, Happy New Year to you!

The easiest and bestest choco fondue recipe around!
1 bag of milk choco. chips
1/4 c. evaporated milk
2 T butter
3 C mini marshmallows
Put all together in a bowl and heat in microwave in 1 min. intervals. The GREATEST thing about this fondue is that it can be heated over and over again. But you will love it so much that you will be able to eat the whole batch in one sitting!

What will I be doing for New Years? Enjoying my new fancy manicure in my PJ's.
See you next year!

The Blazin Blazer

I must confess...

I have secretly wished to own a boyfriend blazer for a while now but, have been far too cheap to actually make the purchase knowing that A. one such article of clothing isn't all that conducive to my life style and B. if I did buy one it would probably collect dust in the back of my closet.
However, while browsing the clearance section at Target last night I came upon the perfectly priced, perfectly fitted jacket of joy. So, for a mere $15 bucks (yes I bought it because it was on sale. Do I need it? Of course not.) I can now get over my boyfriend blazer obsession and get on with my life. If you are looking for the perfect comfort blazer stop in to your local Target. I bet you will like it too! what to wear it with? THESE in gold could be super fab!

Now all I need is a fan and I'm convinced I will look just like this girl while wearing my new blazer. :)
P.S. THIS T is AWESOME! They are a great length and the price is right! Go buy one to wear with your $15 blazer!

Because Pantone Says So

Lets us all raise our glasses and say our good byes to this fabulous 2010 Pantone shade and welcome
THIS new shade for the 2011 year.
Ooh la la....honeysuckle. I'm fairly certain I'm going to need a lipstick or a polish in this shade!

Dear Mr. Pantone Turquoise 15-5519,
I'm going to miss you. You brought me much happiness through out the 2010 year. My house decor adores you and my wardrobe enjoyed your cheery tone. However, I'm afraid your sister Mrs. Pantone Honeysuckle 18-2120 is going to give you a run for your money because I might heart her a tad bit more. No offense.
Best of luck in future color wheels.
Mrs. Princess Pookie

And just like that it is all over.
No grand finale.
No encore.
No part II.
Just a mess of wrapping and boxes.
I am blessed. Very blessed with a healthy family, a fabulous Prince Charming and a house full of new crap I get to clean up. (Thank you Santa!)
Hope Santa found your house and left you with all your heart hoped for.
See you soon.
Happy, Happy Merry, Merry!

Dear Santa...



Extra Naughty!

Extraordinarily nice!
Looking forward to seeing you soon. Our cookies may be a bit stale because I just got too busy to bake new ones. Safe travels. Give Mrs. Claus a kiss from us.
Merry Christmas!
Mrs. Princess Pookie
P.S. I wouldn't mind if I found a pair of THESE under the tree. They may be a little out of the budget but it never hurts to ask.

Decked Halls

Polka dot packages, jars filled with candy, cake plates of cookies, my children's artwork, pom pom garland. These are a few of my favorite things.
P.S. Mannheim Steamroller (playing) reminds me of Christmas when I was like 8. It makes me giggle.

Dear Prince Charming,

If you're wondering what to get me THIS could do the trick. I mean if it was hiding under the tree I wouldn't mind. I heart it. I heart it a lot. I heart it more than that other thing I was telling you about the other day that I'm sure you've already forgotten about. Thanks for considering.

Ho Ho Ho...

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

Girls can appreciate a cool gadget too!
Trends for the gift giving season.
{laser hair removal device}
Got girlstache issues? Just sayin;).Then THIS gadget could be your new BFF.

{Bose sound system}
Guys aren't the only ones who can appreciate awesome sound. THIS one is even portable.

{touch nano}
I would use THIS a lot! My ipod is from the dark ages. But I still heart it. However compared to this it's a beast!

{iphone 4}
Yes please. I'll take THIS. I'm sure 1/2 of you out there already have one. I'll try my best to not be jealous but I bet you're jealous of my BIGGER & BETTER coverage. Gotta love Verizon for that.

{towel warmer}
I have always wanted one of THESE. Ooh La Cozy!

{password keeper)
*This one's for you Peeps!
Just when I think I have a password "system" down then a doozy gets thrown at me. Like "must contain 2 numbers, 4 capitals and a piece of pie."
{video camera/camera}
OMG! This is super fun! The Costco expert man with a cool accent (he was Irish) pulled one of THESE out of the packaging for me to play with. It's a quick, pull out of your pocket video camera. Maybe you've heard of the Flip. Same thing.

{grocery list recorder}
I TOTALLY needed one of these the other day. THIS might make me passionate about grocery shopping. Ah....Nah. But it's still neato.

Fa la la la la la la la la!
Got your shopping done?

Woe Is Me

Prince Charming puking.
Children fighting.
Baby not sleeping.
Princess Pookie's on the couch.
Santa may I please have one of THESE?
Life is blissful!
Thank goodness for tomorrow. I hope.

P.S. Can someone PLEASE explain to me how a 7 week old child can be completely in dream land but the second his mommy sits down he's wide awake? And how do they always know when the car stops? How do they know these things? How?

Favorite Things

Pre-school programs.
It doesn't get any better than this. Lulu's BFF is the stage. She could not wait to get up there and do her thing. After the show was over she saw another little girl get flowers. Lu didn't get hers at the show, she got to "pick" hers out AFTER the show. Now that's extra lucky! (Or my way for making up not getting her any.) Apparently according to her "Life's all about Me" handbook, a girl who has been on stage automatically qualifies for the receiving of flowers. I must have missed that part.

You Better Watch Out

So it happened. First one of the season. Mamma with a ginormous cart full of crap totally cut in line at Target. What did I have? 2 items. What did she have? 2 gazillion items. This is what I wanted to do to her. (see pic.) She was rude. Totally rude. I hate rude people. Why? Because I have a hard time not being rude back. Ya, that's right. I suck. Don't mess with a sleep deprived Mamma in line during the Holidays. I just might karate chop ya.;)

What have you been standing in line for?
Me? THESE, THIS and THIS. Yes, that last one was something I bought for myself. You're welcome Santa aka Prince Charming.

Happy Merry Shopping!

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

Click HERE for today's Trendy Tuesday advice. I love it.
Fun! Fun!
Double wammy! That dude is wearing a Christmas vest AND a turtle neck. Awesome!

"Little" Black Dress

So I bought THIS dress (with a cardi) for a bit of a special occasion. Don't you just love a "special occasion"? What better excuse can one have to justify something new. Ooh, maybe I should start calling diaper changing time a "special occasion". Hmm...Anyway....
It was Cute. Not perfect. Okay priced. Polka dots, my fav. and in my size (sorta). On the rack hung the size I used to be, the size I pretend to be and the size I just might really be. My mind thinking: Well of course I'm not back to THE size I used to be. Duh! And certainly I can't be THAT size. So, let's go with THIS size. And off I went to the check out.
Sunday morning I put the dress on (sorta). I tried to tackle the fitting myself but just couldn't reach the zipper (Sure, that was the problem! Those "side" zippers can be tricky. Wink.) I called Kels in to assist. He grunted. He grunted some more. He waved and blew on his finger because the zipper pull was causing him pain. After a valiant effort on his part he quit and said, "Mom are you sure this dress is the right size?"
My mind thinking again: "Ah hem...thank you my son. That will be enough. Stupid freakin dress!"
Speaking of little black dresses THIS one is precious and THIS one is for the red carpet!

Here Comes Santa Claus

Look what Santa Claus left on our doorstep. We get jammers the first of December instead of Christmas Eve so that we can enjoy them the whole month long. Now all I need is a pair of THESE (jester red please) to complete my cozy December ensemble.
