May I interest you in a piping hot muffin upon completion of your pelvic exam today?
How on earth is one supposed to take the gynecologist serious with oven mitts covering the stirrups? I'm not making this stuff up. This was the scene upon my arrival at my "new" doctor's office. I literally started LOL and then wondered if I should have ran for my life.

Such Is life

Poop in the swim diaper.
Not just regular poop. Too much apple juice poop.

Broken nail polish all over.
Brand new broken nail polish all over.
Did I mention it was neon pink?

Fighting children.
Constantly "he said/she did" fighting children.

Finally tried "the yummiest recipe ever" from Pinterest.
Two words...
Nasty Crap!

 Naturally, with a day like yesterday, one deserves a little treat. Right?

May I suggest the Watermelon Splash? It's delightfully refreshing.Go get yourself one.
On second thought, maybe THIS treat would have been more appropriate for the occasion!

Oh the things life throws at us. Hooray! (or not)

P.S. The *%$*A($)#($ only represents disgruntled under-my-breath mumblings.

Weekend At My House

The non-instagram version.
Lucy had her dance recital. Of course she was fabulous.
Attended a pirate pool party and then from there dressed in our jeans and jackets and went ice skating. That was a bit of a strange contrast.
Took a nap. 
Celebrated the best dad ever.
Ate peach buckle. Our favorite. 
Had a moment of missing our friends and family.
Went for a Sunday drive in the dark. Pointless, yes, but still entertaining.
Was inspired by this:

It is time.
It is time for me to move forward and make things happen.
What this means exactly I'm not sure. Yet.
But, I'll figure it out eventually.

Happy Monday!
Make it a great one.

Wanted....but didn't.

Late nite (kidless) TJ Maxx run.

This would have been the perfect companion for Larry~the bright yellow moose head that already hangs above our TV.

 I'm sure I could find a great spot for this little guy.

 Faux ferns, so beautiful.
or NOT!
If you have a faux fern in your house get rid of it RIGHT NOW. I mean it. RIGHT NOW!
If you have faux ferns as decor above your kitchen cabinets then you're beyond help.;)

 "Ooh la la", she said.

 Jewel pop mold? Seriously?

 The cutest knives on the face of the planet. 
If these would have been red I'm pretty sure they would have gone home with me. 

 8 legged sea on trend right now. 
THIS is cool too. 

This was so much neater in real life. You'll have to use your imagination.

What did I come with? A pair of pajama pants for Prince Charming. Yawn, I know!

TJ Maxx is probably one of, if not, my favorite store ever. However, Target is a very close second. Is it just me or has Target's home decor section been lacking in the luster department lately?

What's your favorite store?

FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

This is what you get when a 30 something mother of three gets carried away with her new smokey eye kit. When Prince Charming saw me he asked if I was just trying to be edgy or if I was really on the edge? My reply...Both!

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