Things To Be HAPPY About

Picnic at the park.
 The sun found its way here! For at least a day any way.
(Go figure...the sun comes out and my children want to hide.)

My New Mop.
Marie you did a rockin' job on my hair. Bob and I are officially BFF's!
If you live in Gig Harbor go see Marie HERE. You'll love her!

My baby girl in polka dots.

Mr. Berkshire's blue eyes.
And, he finally cut his first toothy. That's worth the happy dance.

My Sun Room!
Its makes me happy. Especially when the sun shines!

I'm working on a  new little project about my house. If you're curious, click on the side bar pic labled "My Castle" to learn more. Note: This is a work in progress. More will come.

Happy Monday!

P.S. I will be out of the office for about a week (or so) in search of more sun. Children you better behave for Grandma and Grandpa while I'm gone or else you'll be getting airplane peanuts as your "surprise".

What the PEEP?

You're kidding me! I cannot find these little YELLOW (found purple, pink, blue~no thanks!) critters any where. What PEEP trend did I miss this year? The one where they were featured on the front cover of every spring 2011 food magazine all done up in a cute dessert? Whatever. Like anyone's gonna eat the cute peep dessert. Can someone out there please return their YELLOW peeps so that I can make my cute dessert? I even bought the flippin' magazine! And "hell to the no" if you think I'm gonna whip up a batch of hot cross buns!:)

Happy Easter Everyone!
 Dear Easter Bunny,
You can leave the Cadbury mini eggs at home this year. I've already eaten my weight in those stupid things. Curse the mini egg. However, I'm pretty sure the pink ones taste the best.
Safe Travels!
Mrs. Princess Pookie
P.S. And if you forget to fill my basket, I know where you sleep!

Aaaahhhh Chop! Chop!

Going, going, gone.
Today I came to my senses and realized that the messy perma pony tail living on top of my head (since the birth of #3) is really not all that darling. So, let me introduce you to my new friend Bob. I don't know him all that well yet but, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna LOVE him.
P.S. Cutting off 10 inches of hair isn't for sissies!
P.S.S. I think both Bob and myself would enjoy THIS bag!

Muffin Man

For the last 42 minutes my daughter has been asking me for an English muffin. I'm not ignoring her. Really. Just taking my time. She finally lost her patience with me and started threatening with the "count". "1...2...3...4...if I make it to five and you still don't get me a muffin I'm gonna be really mad at you mom!"

Hey, at least she gave me til "5". I personally give up at around two and a half!
Awesome! The child parenting the Mom.

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

Yep! Gotta hook myself up with one of THESE.
Trendy. Cool. For sure I DARE!
HINT: This could make an excellent Mother's Day gift!

A few TRENDS I could do without!

1. Snacks! For pre-school, for elementary school, for the soccer team, for ballet class. Enough with the freakin snacks already!
2. Slug Bug~why does it seem like there is a "slug bug" every 2 min.?
3. 2 AM baby wake up calls. Poke my eyes out please.
4. The maple bacon smell that has been living in my microwave. Go away!
5. Swim class Moms. Yes...I was late, Again.

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

At $195 dollars (It's Valentino) I think I'm going to attempt to make my own version of this shirt this weekend. Wish me luck because if you remember, I only pretend like I know how to sew!

It's FRIDAY....Awesome!

P.S. THIS one's pretty freakin cute too!

Here's to the Jelly

So the truth is, I'm not really a jelly bean person. Unless it says "Jelly Belly" on it that is. Picky? Snobby? Maybe. But you know what I really like? Combining the Jelly Belly flavors to create an apple pie ala mode or a pina colada cooler. Know what I mean? And that popcorn flavor, you either hate it or love it. Me, LOVE it. Have you ever won one of those "guess the number of jelly beans in the jar" game? Ya, me either.

So I came across this jelly bean accessory (below). DELICIOUS!
I think maybe next week I'll shoot for the "Mom of the Year" award
and make these with my children. Heck, I just might be an over achiever and let them invite friends
over to join in on the jelly bean fun!

We interupt this fashion blog for a very important message.

When it comes to politics I am a complete idiot. Really! I don't follow. I don't read up. I barely vote. (I know...terrible!) BUT....this is a big deal. A really big deal! It must be a big deal if I'm posting this instead of cute shoes. Watch. Listen. Learn. Vote. I know I will.:)

P.S. On voting day I think I'll wear THIS hat. I tried it on and it's super cute!

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

Orange + Yellow = HAPPY

Do you dare wear the color of sunshine?

P.S. I wore socks and my oxfords with a dress the other day.
Silly school girl TRENDY fun.

Kid Envy

The other day Lucy came home from school and said, "Mom, I'm learning how to pump." Pump? What does that mean? (My imagination thinking: pump a tire, pump a boob, pump it up....hmmmm.) "You know, like on a swing." Ohhhh! Got it.

Something to think about:
Wouldn't it be fun to go back and be a kid again? Even just for a day? "Pump" on a swing instead of pay the bills. Climb a tree instead of change a diaper. Color a picture instead of doing the dishes. Get tucked in at night instead of being the tucker inner. To me that sounds nice. Really, really nice.

Happy Monday!
Throw a temper tantrum and color on the walls~hee hee!
P.S. Speaking of kids. Look how stinkin' cute THESE are.

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

For those of us who are blessed with thigh blubber,  we are thankful for THIS skirt to wear with our swim tops.

For those of us who sport the muffin top, we are thankful for THIS.

For those of us who desire a skirt length that doesn't show our undies, we are thankful for THESE.

And last but not least...
For those of us who appreciate an accessory larger than our head, we adore THIS.

Shop. Laugh. Buy new shoes!

I'm Dreaming

I have a closet. I am thankful for my closet. I have to share my closet. With my husband. It's a little cramped. Okay a lot cramped. But hey...I have a closet!

It never hurts to dream. Right?


Tried THIS top on last night. It's a keeper!
Don't you just love a fancy T-shirt?
Pair one with a maxi skirt and your are in fashion comfort heaven!
Ooh! And don't forget THESE flip flops and THESE bracelets.

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

 Ta da! Introducing to you the MAXI skirt!

Yes? No? Maybe so?
Although a lover of the MAXI dress, I personally haven't made up my mind yet on this one.

Do you dare?

P.S. When did this happen and why wasn't I invited?

Is It Really Monday...Again?

Oh where, oh where should this little cow rug go?
(Note the princess shoe. Someday I will miss those plastic
shoes laying around my house. Someday.)
P.S. Looking for a cowhide rug? EBAY!

Did I say high gloss yellow a few posts back?
Just kidding, semi gloss red.
(chair painting project~ugh!)

 Just what I was looking for!
(the yellow cart that is)

Rapunzel, Rapunzel...
let down your hair so I can eat it.

What? As opposed to The FAT Cow?

Happy Monday!
Make it a GREAT one!

P.S. I had a "No she didn't" moment at Nords this weekend.
As I was browsing (not buying) in the shoe section this lady had a poodle the size of a freakin horse with her. Yes, IN the shoe section at Nords. I hate dogs. Especially dogs that go shopping!
