The people in my household enjoy a fancy breakfast on the weekend so Prince Charming and I made delicious crepes. However, Prince Charming likes to call them "craps" and he thinks it's funny. So do the children, but I think it's stupid (okay maybe a little funny but I wouldn't tell him that). Only he would turn something fancy like crepes, said with a French accent of course, into poop.
I spied with my little eye...Kels doing Lu lu's nails. Look, they even got a magazine so they wouldn't ruin the table.
Have you seen these mini cans of Dr. Pepper? I drink soda once in a never but a baby can of this kills a headache for me like no drug can. Plus, it's so cute!
Last night I had a shopping date with my 9 yr old son. Before Christmas he saw these shoes (pic below) and really wanted them. Well, when we hit the store last night he knew exactly what he wanted.
Although I spent more on the dumb things then I wanted to, the second he put them on I could tell he felt like the coolest kid on the planet. He did a little dance in them (literally) and stood a little taller. He was proud. Not that our children need the newest and coolest and greatest and most expensive of things but, what they do need is a healthy dose of self confidence. A lot of moms out there think their sons could care less about how they look. I bet you'd be surprised. We Mommy's need to teach our boys how to comb their hair, match their shirts to their shorts, and get after them when they fart in public. We need to teach them to care and we need to feed them with confidence daily. Why? Because we want them to marry well!;)
Watching my son feel good about himself was really cool.
See, told ya shoes matter! (hee hee)
P.S. I of course had to check out shoes for me while we were in the store and THESE are really cute!
Would you look at that. I straightened my hair AND I'm wearing eye liner. Weird.
This berry lemonade is freakin tasty! Have you tried it?
Anyone ever made molded choco before? Me either. Wish me luck.
Back off ladies, he's only one.
What else? Can't kick my stupid cold. Lame! House hunting in AZ is giving me a headache. Went back to the gym and the lady working out in front of me had a BAD case of the toots. Like really bad! Watched I Don't Know How She Does It. Totally cute flick! Redbox it. Fell in love with THESE.
I have been sick at home all week so there has been absolutely nothing fashionable about my life. However, THIS cute girl is bursting with more fabulous fashion than any of us could ever imagine. I've been peeking at her blog for a while now and her style and eye for color is absolutely stunning! Her impeccable (and expensive) taste, creative ability to put outfits together, and natural beauty is so inspiring!
Take a moment to click on over to her blog called Atlantic-Pacific to be fashionably uplifted. The pictures are really fun to look at.
Yesterday my BFF in Washington text me this picture.
I replied back with this picture! Hee hee!
Funny Story: So there's this punk kid at school who every now and again comments on the way my 9 yr old son dresses. Well yesterday my son was wearing a navy puffy vest and the punk kid was making fun of him for wearing a "girl coat". My 9 yr olds response back to him was, "You have no sense of style." Awesome!
BTW looking for home decorating ideas? THIS site is full of amazing pictures!
What do I know about cosmetics? Not a whole lot. But, I do know that I am a HUGE fan of benefit products. Here's one of their newest arrivals and it will be sure to please! The most common question I get about my skin is my "glow" (ha ha). How do I get this? I buy it in a bottle. Really! I like to believe that lots of water and exfoliating 1-2 times a week with Burts Bees Citrus scrub helps too. Anyway, highlighters are beautiful thing! DO IT. Invest in a highlighter. Everyone will be asking you what your secret is.
When not in my pajamas, you'll likely find me in this.
Shop. Eat Cake. Wear something fabulous.
P.S. If you don't own an Alternative Earth hoodie you're missing out. They rock my world. I cross my heart and hope to die if you invest in one it will be your new BFF. If you live in Gig Harbor Bloom has an excellent selection!
I eat frozen burritos for lunch. Often. I despise making lunch for myself. If I and my body didn't know better I'd skip lunch all together. Theytaste like nasty crap and I overcook them probably 90% of the time. Oh, and in case you were wondering they're like low cal, high protein, pieces cardboard that can be found in the freezer section at your local Costco. However, I don't recommend them.
If you came to my house before noon you'd probably find me wearing some hideous fashion similar to the one pictured above. Often you'll find me eating my burrito wearing this same attire.
I cut my hair short thinking maybe I'd actually style it. Nope. Come to find out I really hate flat ironing my hair no matter what the length is. So, pathetic messy "mini" pony it is.
I seriously HATE this tile floor. Know what I hate more than this tile floor? Cleaning it!
If I could get away with it I'd probably wear these red jeans everyday.
I'm really digging lucite furniture. Is that weird? Is lucite furniture weird? Seriously? Is it?
Here it is 4:25AM as I type. I cannot sleep and tears run down my face. Not because I'm sad. At least I don't think so. But, because I'm exhausted. Exhausted from all the wonder that has been whirling around in my head.
I wonder when house #2 will sell? I wonder when my baby will sleep through the night? I wonder who I will find to cut my hair? I wonder what the reading specialist will say when I tell her I'm pulling my son from her stupid program? I wonder how much the tutor will cost because I'm pulling my son from the stupid reading program? I wonder why I bought that cheesy rug from Ikea? I wonder how much longer the savings account will last? I wonder when I'll get a house of my own? I wonder why I have been obsessed with orange juice lately? I wonder when I'll have a real friend? I wonder what we'll have for dinner? I wonder why Lucy is so uncoordinated in her jazz class? I wonder when I won't be tired any more? I wonder what I'll wear today?;)
May all the wonders stay wonders and not turn to worries. If that happens then I'll really be doomed in the beauty rest department!
