FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

Fabulous cuteness for the home.
(Found this chair at TJ MAXX. Score!)

 Fabulous accessories for the wrist.
(what would we do without accessories?)

Fabulous reds for the fingers and toes.
(have you gotten your shellac manicure yet?)

Fabulous Merci's to friends we love.
(Idea: to add a little fanciness to this flower arrangement all I did was print merci on cardstock, tape it to a skewer, and tie a little bow around it. Fabulous! Right? Pretending to be fabulous really isn't all that hard.)

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

P.S. Start your Saturday with THIS fabulous workout!

Picture This

Are any of you out there members of or I guess groupon is the same idea. (I really like livingsocial btw. I've got some super cool deals lately. You should consider subscribing if you're not a member.)

Well lately a of couple of "boudoir" aka 80's version glamor shot deals have come through. Speaking of glamor shots, my sister did a session back in the day and they are my favorite pictures EVER! Love you sis.! You should totally pull those out for the grandkids!;)

Out of curiosity I chose to click on the deal. I had no idea. TA DA. HERE is a version of today's glamor shots. of undies wrapped around fat legs. What on God's green earth is one going to do with a photo like that? If I gave a pic like that to my hubs he'd laugh his head off. That is after I laughed mine off first. AWKWARD! How about THIS? "Mommy, do you always wear red high heels to bed?" Oy yoi yoi! To each his own I guess.

What's the point of boudoir pictures? A good laugh 10 years from now. Come on. Do you really think your significant other really wants to be gifted pictures of this nature? Don't be fooled. We all know what he'd rather have!;)

Oh wait, oh wait! I get it now. "Hey honey, I have a headache. But, boy do I have a treat for you."
(A picture of my muffin top and saggy boobs. Ooh la la! Enjoy!)

P.S. Did I just post about porn? Sorry about that.

Weekend At My House

I spent the majority of my weekend sitting in fitness trainings. Be warned. I'm on a slight fitness kick and enjoying every minute of it. Gig Harbor peeps, thank your lucky stars I'm no longer your instructor!;)

Came across this pic. on pinterest.

 You know what I think about it?
Bull Crap!
This girl hasn't done a Tricep dip ever in her life. It completely annoys me that someone would take a pic like this and imply that you can have that body if you do that workout. No. No. Don't be a dummy. You can have that body if  you eat a stick of gum for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And then, tomorrow you die.

This girl on the other hand...
She knows how to do a Tricep dip!

Also found this workout on pinterest. 
It's a goodie and can be completely done in your living room.
No fancy gym or equipment. Love it!

Just do it! Why? Because you can.

Happy Monday.
Make it a great one!

It's FFF

Who gives a crap about fashion when you've got this in front of you. 
Wanna join? You're all invited! 
That is if you promise to leave your sketcher shape ups at home. 
But, if you want me to make fun of you bring em. I could use a good laugh. 
Ooh, and if you have a snuggie and a beanie baby collection bring them too. That will really get me rollin'.

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

P.S. If you're looking for something fabulous THIS totally affordable dress fits the bill. Pair with a mint colored under T, a fedora, and strappy sandals. CUTE as a bug! Wait, bugs aren't cute. Where did that phrase come from? Cute as a baby kitten.:)

THIS in radish (red) would suit me well.

I didn't mean to do it. I really didn't. It just sorta happened. I simply walked into the store to do a quick return and next thing I knew...

I had a pair of THESE on my feet.

 Uh-maze-ing! They're like wearing fluffy pink cotton candy. And let us not forget the ever-so-delicious colors that they come in. Save your pennies for a pair. Complete THIS workout (Can I please have that butt?) and you'll deserve a pair. Or two!

Do you DARE?

Boys, Boys, Boys

Boy #1 made me Brazilian lemonade last night. If it was an alcoholic beverage I for sure would have been drunk. I'm telling you, this is the most AMAZING cup of crack ever. Make some tonight!
(Note: it's seems to be a "slightly high maintenance" recipe but it is soooo worth it. Especially if you can convince your hubs to make it. hee hee)

These are my famous lemon bars. Yep, they're famous. Within my small social circle that is.
Boy #2 proceeded to get one for himself. Strategic~eh?

This is Boy #3. He is a pain in the butt to shop with. And that's putting it nicely. However, if we find him a pair of sunglasses that seems to entertain him. For 30 seconds. Maybe.

And are you ready for the good news?

I think we found a place to call home. Cross your fingers that it all works out for us!  Stay tuned.

Weekend At My House

Did the Easter Bunny find his way to your house?

Maybe no one will notice I'm missing. 

The truth...
besides Cadbury chocolate egg goodness
I'm sooooo not in to the Easter Bunny thing. 
Easter, yes.
Easter Bunny, no.
Spring colors, happy sunshine, Easter celebrations-lovely.
plastic grass, easter egg hunts, stuffed animals-no thanks.  

Dear Prince Charming, 
Thank you for making Easter dinner. It was a delicious masterpiece. Ok, so the deviled eggs were a bit wierdo but, I still love you. A lot.  
Love, ME

It's Monday. Make it a great one. 
We're out of milk, my favorite orange juice, and TP. Not a good start to making my Monday a great one! 

Friday, April 6, 2012

May your Happy Easter weekend be filled with little chocolate bunnies, delicious deviled eggs, and delightful spring bouquets. Oh yes, and let us not forget the peeps that I kinda like in a this is strange to eat and tastes gross sort of way.

P.S. Like the silly vase pictured above? click HERE. It was a NY souvenir to myself purchased at the Jonathan Adler store in Soho.

because that's just what you do in NYC.

you also...
  eat (twice) at the quirkiest treat place on the face of the planet

 get up at the crack of dawn to catch a peek of the hunky matt lauer

  pose like a dummy in your favorite home store

 feel the reality of loss and possibility of new hope
(this was one of my favorite spots~9.11 memorial)

 do it all with your best friend.

New York.
If you've  never been to NY promise yourself right now you will put it on your bucket list.
