Matching Holiday Pajamas!
Is this Holiday tradition a little too cheese-o-rama for you? 
For some, probably. For my family...we totally DARE!
On Dec. 1 Santa swings buy and drops off Christmas pj's and advent calendars for all. 
I know the more traditional way to do this is to open them on Christmas Eve but, "Santa" likes us to enjoy our pj's all month long. They arrive in a bag like THIS on the front porch wrapped in special Santa paper.  
Want to join in on the matching pj train? You've got two more days. All aboard!
We love THESE pjs for the kids and I want THESE ones~especially so I can walk around my house looking sexy with only one button buttoned.;)

Do you DARE?
P.S. If you take on this Dec. 1 tradition you might want to explain to your children that not all families get visited by Santa before Christmas because they will go to school and tell all their friends that Santa came. Which could cause some serious confusion! Trust me. I learned the hard way.

The BEST Gift Idea Ever!

Did you BLACK FRIDAY it?
 If you did I think you're nuts. 
I have very strong opinions about the whole Black Friday thing.
Sure, I get it. Lots of bargains and deals to be had. Awesome! Shopping at midnight will all your girly friends. Fun tradition!  BUT...
how many of you bought crap that you didn't need but bought because it was on SALE?
Would you have bought it if it wasn't a deal?
That's what I thought. Take the crap back. You don't need it!
You know all those lotions, candles, socks and articles of fleece clothing
you got such a great deal on to give away as gifts?
Well let me break the news to ya, WE DON'T WANT THEM!
(My apologies to those I may have offended. Sorry. Black Friday isn't my thing. Ironic, I know.) 


 I'm gonna save you A LOT of money this year.
You can thank me later.
Go ahead. 
Buy yourself that handbag you've been adoring now for months.
Splurge on something a little extra special.
Buy yourself a Christmas dress WITH fancy shoes. 
Because the BEST GIFT EVER you can give your kids is free!
It will provide hours of entertainment and has been proven to:
Promote sibling love.
Stimulate creativity.
Increase brain power.
What is this FREE gift?

A box!
Need a break from your kids? Go get a really big box. It's the best babysitter ever!

Happy Monday!
Make it a GRRREAT one.

P.S. Hope you all ate yourselves sick over the weekend. Do you feel a little fatter? Me too!

Holiday Lux

Okay so remember a couple posts back I was hoping Santa would bring me these (pic above) in silver? Well just kidding. I saw them in person and they are TOTALLY fugly. Like super FUGLY barf-o-rama. BUT..never fear, I found a fabulous replacement. Black velvet Toms. How cute would these be? Sassy dressy with some casual comfort on the side. ADORBS! You should ask for these to be placed under the tree. They would look so cute on all of you. And you'll be the coolest Mom ever!

Oh, but there's more. Red glitter Toms. Now that's Fancy like Nancy. And they come in mini sizes too.

One more fun little Holiday addition. Have Santa slip this lip kit in your stocking and you'll be extra luscious!

Head ups. That give away I've been promising will be featured Friday. You're gonna like it. And if you don't then I don't like you.;) The delay has made it even bigger and better than I had originally planned. Can't wait to share!  
See you tomorrow!

That's A Little Odd

Oh for crap sake. 
(My dad say's that. it cracks me up.)
Let me start by sharing my yesterday.   
We woke up late.
Lucy had a SERIOUS case of bed head. Serious case. Like unbelievable case.
Lost 1/2 a gallon of apple juice on the floor. Didn't tip. Splattered! All over.
Wore my running skirt to workout that has little shorties underneath. Half way through workout realized skirt was tucked in shorties. (All I could do was laugh. Out loud.)
Put Berkie down for nap. 
Settled outside for a moment of quiet in the sun.
Lawn chair collapsed. Seriously?
20 min. later got Berkie out of bed. Apparently he thought he didn't need a nap. So much for quiet time in the sun.
Went to Costco and Lucy dumped ice cream all over her ballet suit. Note: We hadn't been to ballet yet.

Walked into Old Navy and was welcomed by this mannequin. 
I laughed. I laughed like really hard.
What's wrong with this picture?
It's probably really not all that funny, but I couldn't stop laughing.
I'm not done. 
Here's the icing on the cake. Ready?
Prince Charming came home (he's been out of town) and told me all about THIS amazing hotel where he at fancy food and played pool on a blinged out pool table. 

But,  I'm the lucky one because I get to stay home and enjoy rainbows and popsicles with the children.

Oh oh...I forgot something. The first thing out of Prince Charming's mouth when he saw me was, "Do you know you have mascara all over your face?" 
Thank goodness for tomorrows.

Now I think I'm in the mood to buy THIS

P.S. Lovin' THESE from the store with disabled mannequin.

What's this skinny hype all about?
skin-ny jeans (noun) 1. snug fit in leg that end with small opening 2. pant that makes you think you're going to look "skinny" but when you try them on you realize you are a hippo 3. may cut off circulation 4. muffin top troubles? skinny jeans are the perfect enhancement.

Is that how you feel about the skinny?

Okay, okay. Skinny jeans are nothing new on the fashion scene and you might be one who finds them hideous. But, have you ever tried a pair on? Trust me. There is a pair out there waiting for you and your booty. Perfectly paired with flats, heels or boots you'll look sexy all the way. Really. Just try.
Note: You will not find the perfect pair at Target. I know. Purchase them from a place like American Eagle and you'll like you're in junior high. Buy from XXI and your butt will break through them. Upgrade a little and you'll love them a lot.

How do I prefer the skinny?

(I don't like a lot of extra pant hanging around my ankle. That's why I prefer the crop skinny.)
I just discovered THESE in "ankle" length. I highly recommend starting with a pair of these.

Anyway...Do you DARE?

P.S. Tooth incident update: "And we wait". Went to endodontist today and he wants us to wait for TWO weeks and then x-ray again. I will learn to embrace the snaggle tooth and love it as we endure to the end of this tooth saga. I'm such a vain Mother.

Slight Delay

Fine. Call me a liar. I said there would be a goodie give away today.
Yes, there is a give away almost complete for one of you.
We had a bit of an incident Friday night and I'm doing my best to stay afloat.
(My 9 yr old had a scooter accident and totally mucked up-that's putting it nicely- his front PERMANENT teeth. He is fine. I am not.) 
Life is just sucking for us right now.
We shall endure.
Stay tuned! I promise that give away will show up.

Happy Monday. 
Wish us luck. Going to the endodontist.

P.S. How come children never get injured during business hours?
P.S.S. Did you notice my new side bar features? Not complete yet, but I'll get there.

It's FFF!

What do you get when you wear all your favorite colors of the season together? For some, probably a headache. For me....fashion! I'm totally sweating in this outfit BTW. Remember...I live in Arizona now.

Happy Friday!
Shop. Eat cake. And wear something fabulous.

Baby Tears

Yesterday we had a tradgey occur in our home. We lost a loved one that has been with us for 14.5 yrs. What Mommy in her right mind allows her 1 yr. old to play with the stacking GLASS bowl set? Especially when there's a plastic one in the cupboard  next door? She should totally be fired!

If you don't have THESE in your kitchen you need them. Seriously! However, they are not to be used for entertaining the children. Serves me right. Grrrr...

Please note: I did not take these out of my cupboard and set them in front of Berks to play with. I'm not that bad of a mom. ;)

Oh Snap!

Isn't my hat cute? 
Oh wait, is that bragging?
Well of course I think it's cute. I wouldn't have bought it if it was ugly. 
(As my 9 yr old would say.)

Do you have a cool hat for fall? (No, your Nike work out baseball cap doesn't count!) If you don't have one you should go buy one. They are the best solution to any bad hair day!

P.S. Most of my hats either come from Target or TJ Maxx. Excellent price. Excellent selection. I convinced my friend to buy one the other day. Sorry Michelle's Hubs, but it looked so stinkin cute on her. She HAD to have it.

It's TT

This weeks TT makes me pee my pants a little because it makes me so excited.

Does it get any better? I think not.
Feathers, jewels, bows, poofs, fancy blingity bling is all around for the Holiday season.
These things are full of so much sas you won't know what to do with yourself. 
My bestie and I drooled over them all weekend long. Especially over THIS pair. Absolutely divine!
So what did we do?
 Create our own of course!
Fabulous fun! However, I don't recommend doing this activity at the 2 AM hour.;)

Would you like a pair of pretties for your shoes?
When I'm finished I just might have an extra pair to give away. 
YIPEE! We can be matching shoe besties.
Be sure to check back!
Have a great Tuesday.

Holly Jolly Find

Dear Santa,
I'll take a pair of THESE in silver.
I may have been slightly naughty yesterday. But it wasn't my fault. Really. The vacuum cleaner was not cooperating and I may have used a bad word while trying to tinker with it. And I did get a little upset when Lucy stepped on my BRAND NEW chair with her dirty shoe. Did I mention it was BRAND NEW?
Today I promise I'll be good.
Thank you,
Mrs. Princess Pookie
P.S. I've been working on my cookie making skills. You'll be proud.

Vintage. Feminine. Pretty.
The bow blouse come back is like taking a look back into my Mother's closet.
I'm certain she had a handful of these that hung next to the plum colored skirt suit.
Back then... it probably embarrassed me. Now...sure wish I had them!
Funny how that works isn't it?

The bow blouse. Do you DARE?
I do! And make sure you save yours for your daughter!

This is a cute combo!
Go. Now. Search.
The perfect bow blouse is waiting for you to take it home.
