The BEST Job Ever!

Today I must give thanks for the opportunity I am given to be able to teach.
I teach dance.
I love it.
I am blessed. Very, very blessed.
1 recital down, 3 more to go!
I can do this.
P.S. In case any of you were wondering...I'm taking a sabbatical from dance. Thank you summer vacation!

Door To Door To Door....

Yesterday I went shopping for a RED  door. Found one. Don't adore it but it will do because I'm too cheap to spend a gazillion dollars on what I really want.
My heart desires a RED dutch door (top opens and/or bottom opens). But that means "custom". And "custom" means $$$. AND every door man I've talked to has lashed out at me for even thinking such a thing living in Washington. Something about the weather and door seals and heavy hinges. Blah...Blah...Blah.

Painters come today. Yipee!
Can't wait to share. Don't hold your breath because it will be a few weeks. Pretty sure the rain is comin' back. So Mr. King 5 weatherman says.

Isn't this house delightful? To me it says,
Come on in!
Red. What a fabulous color.
P.S. Sorry for my lame posts and lack there of. Got a lot going on. More to come on this.;)

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

Have an old pin that you don't know what to do with? This is a cutie idea!

1. Fold ribbon in half.
2. Pull looped end of ribbon under the clasp on back of pin.
3. Tie an overhand loop knot.
Tip: Tying ribbon strands separately looks messy. An overhand loop keeps it sleek.

Do you dare?

Here Comes the Bride...

My Girls.
 Minus Lamo (Aimee) who couldn't make it because she just moved to NY.
The one in the middle was the bride and the other one that's not me is next on
the bride-to-be list this fall!
The wedding was blissful. My Utah eating out list got fulfilled. And you're right my Utah friends,
Orson Gygi is a pretty great store!

Happy Monday Everyone!

I've got some serious toilet cleaning to do!

Just Because

Wouldn't you love to wake up to one of THESE hanging in your house?
Today let us all do something simply thoughtful for someone in our life. Why?
Just Because.
I find that the simplest of things go a long way.
Go for it!
Hide a note.
Blow a kiss.
Give an extra long hug.
Give out a random love text.
See you tomorrow!

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

How do you feel about stripes? How do you feel about polka dots? How do you feel about stripes and polka dots together? I think they are a match made in heaven.
Mixing Patterns...
Do you DARE?
If done correctly I LOVE it.
Assignment: Think outside your fashion shoe box and mix away.
P.S. THIS site is fun.

If I Ruled the World

Today if I ruled the world I would....

Demand all babies to sleep through the night.
Have Mother's day quarterly.
Make french fries calorie free.
Turn Monday into musical day.
Send all those who gossip to the dungeon.
Put pink polka dots on the flag.
Make boogers obsolete.
Create magic gnomes to do all the laundry.
Require Nordstrom to donate a pair of shoes to those in need of retail of therapy.
Have babies delivered by storks.
Make bills non-existent.
See to it that no woman would ever have a bad hair day again.

and.... in my world we will all live happily ever after! 

What would you do if you ruled the world?

Happy Monday! Make it a GREAT day!

FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday) with a little hate on the side...

First of all...

I HATE baby food. There. I said it. It's messy and gets all over. It's dumb. Really dumb. You know what's even dumber? Cool mom's who make their own baby food. Lame!
(Okay homemade baby food makers, I really don't think you're dumb! 100% respect here! Seriously.)

Okay moving on....

 This room is so fabulous.
Do you like it?

Creating away for the bridal party.
They're turning out FABULOUS.
I'm exhausted.
P.S. I met a lady today who uses her mad schooling skills to inject others with Botox.
Interesting! Very interesting! Not gonna lie, curious about filling the butt crack between my eyes. Didn't say I was gonna do it. Just curious. Don't judge. I know you're curious too!:)

Pardon me...

Buried in laundry, dishes, dance recitals and unmade beds.
Oh yes, and let's not forget the preparations for my nieces wedding that will be taking place next weekend in Utah. (Yahoo Cafe Rio here I come!)
Be back...soon.
Until then, check THIS cute blog out.

Weekend Happenings

Playing hookie (from church-naughty) in the City.
This pizza and soda are the BEST.
Visit THIS farmer's market to get yourself some.

Girly time with friends (Saturday).

Treat for my feet.

Children pretending to sleep in car so they don't annoy Mom on Mother's day.

Hope you had an extra special weekend.

It's Monday. Don't tell anyone, but I really don't like Monday's.

It's FFF Little Lambie Style

Dear Mr.  L.A.M.B. bag.
I just wanted to let you know how much I love you. 
I lay awake at night thinking about you.
I dream about your supple leather.
I imagine our city adventures together.
Your unique "apple" hue makes me want to bake an apple pie.
If you ever go on sale call me!
Mrs. Princess Pookie
P.S. Your sister's pretty hot too!

Happy Mommy's Day!

Did your Mama ever sew you a pair of THESE?

Do you like THESE? (Updated version)
I do! So cute!
I have a passion for the culotte fashion.
I have a pair that I bought probably 5 years ago that I treasure. Seriously. It's ridiculous.
Unfortunately my belly jelly won't allow me to participate in them...yet. 

Culottes. What a strange word.

Moving on...
I painted these stripes about a month ago. I think I hate them already.
Now what?

My little Lulu has a better mirror in her room than me.

Whimsy? Cute? Or just plain weird?
I really like mushrooms and owls btw.


(That would be two dogs in the basket.)

Attention mall shoppers...
Today we would like to invite you to bring your furry little friends
to the center court where we will be serving complimentary gourmet doggie treats.
AND...Free pooper scoopers for the first 50 shoppers!
Thank you for shopping with us.
Have a nice day!

Is tomorrow bring your pet ferret day?

P.S. I totally agree the mall is not only for shopping but for enjoying the company of your BFF while you try on things you'll never buy. Your HUMAN BFF that is!

Happy Birthday Cha Cha Cha!

To My Son:

Today is your birthday. 9 years ago today you came into this world as a naughty, naughty, naughty baby boy (serious case of colic).  And in that 9 years you have developed into one of the most handsome, kind and loyal little gentelmans. You are smart. You are funny. You are you. Your green eyes melt my heart and your spikey hair and front teeth make me giggle. I love to watch you color. I love to watch you sleep. I love that you still say you love me when I drop you off at school. I love you kiddo. More than you will ever know.

Today my son is your day. Let's celebrate!

Happy Birthday!
I {heart} you.
Nose. Kiss. Hug.
Love, Mom

Dear Monday,

I have decided that after a week of hanging in the sun, sleeping in, eating super taste food and doing whatever I want that I am not ready to meet you. Could we please postpone your arrival a few more days so that I can get back into the swing of things? You know, ease myself back into the poopie diapers, early mornings, school lunches and  piles of laundry that await me. Pretty please with sugar AND a cherry on top?

Thanks for considering.
Mrs. Princess Pookie

P.S. Reality bites doesn't it?
P.S.S. Prince Charming I think pink is your new color. ;)
