 Pool party at my house. Wanna come?

 a couple weeks ago didn't I say I'd never post a pic of me in my swimsuit?


 I didn't lie...

because I'm not wearing a swim suit...

but sort of a swim dress thingy. with all the lace i call it my swim lingerie. hee hee

Yesterday I had a pool full of kids and friends and we had a grand old time. thanks for coming everyone. except for that person who left a piece of poop on my bathroom floor. you're not invited next time. i'm being dead serious. big piece of poop on the floor. sorry for the graphic. i was totally barfing. poop happens, obviously, i guess. 

It's Friday. Yay!
Shop. Eat cake. And wear something fabulous!

Bookmark This

I discovered a new site and it's a fun one.
 I love the name. All Women Stalk. 
Don't deny it. You know you're a stalker just like the rest of us.
I just hope you're not a fb stalker stalking your high school boyfriend. Weirdo! 
may I suggest bookmarking THIS site right now?
BUT...don't visit the link until you have at least 30 min. to kill.
Don't say I didn't warn you!
P.S. Better yet. Have a smart phone? Download the app. It's fun!

 one | two

Oh deary me, the tassel returns for fall. I think I adore??  Especially THESE. Do you?

It's Trendy Tuesday. Do you DARE?

P.S. Did you try something new yesterday? I did.
1. Passed on my Jamba Juice usual and went for something different.
(Hey, don't roll your eyes at that one. I made an effort to try something new.)
2. Instead of freaking out at the fishy cracker disaster I calmly walked away and let them lay there on the floor for the remainder of the day.
See, trying something new doesn't have to involve jumping out of airplanes or eating anchovies.

Weekend At My House

1. love a new dish towel 2. pom pom palooza 3. i hate his diapers but i sure love him 4. baked a cheesecake from a really great cookbook  5. i've decided that this will change my life 6. kid craft project

Guess what? It's Monday.
Do your best to make it a great one! 
 I know, I know, sometimes that is easier said than done but I promise, life's not that bad. Dig deep, hold on, and let life bring you joy. I'm pretty sure I'll be more joyful once school starts. ;) How about you try something new today. What a great idea! Let's do it together. You and me. No need to have another boring Monday. Choose to make it an awesome day! I get it,  diapers, arguing children, bills and dirty dishes are anything but awesome. BUT...doing 20 push ups in your pjs, applying fake lashes (you should totally do that today!), or having a pillow fight could be pretty awesome!

Are you ready for fall yet? I'm always ready for fall because it's my favorite season. Unfortunately in Arizona I'm gathering that there's really no such thing as fall. ANNOYING! Our seasons are as follows: Hottish, Hot, Hotter, Am I In Hell Hot?. However, just because fall doesn't exist in my neck of the woods I can still dream away. Here are a few combos to inspire you for the upcoming cooler weather. Don't you just love fall?
{Number 1}

 {Number 2}

{Number 3}

I would wear any of these combos! Would you?
 Fall essentials according to me: 
something fur
denim top
something leopard
skinny jeans
good leather brown boots

It's Trendy Tuesday...Do you DARE?

Weekend At My House

Dear Prince Charming,
Remember when we were at Nordy's on Saturday night shopping for you (not me) and I slipped away to the bathroom for a moment? Well, I thought I should probably let you know that I sorta took a little side trip to the nail polish counter. Whoopsie! So, when you get your Nords bill and are wondering about that titch bit of an extra charge it was me, buying something for me, when we were shopping for you (not me). Selfish, I know. But as much as I LOVE looking at your bum in a new pair of jeans, after pair 11 I just needed a break. 

I hope you'll forgive me.

P.S. You totally looked hot in that one pair of jeans. Number 6 was it? You should totally get them!

I'm not going crazy here. My favorite thing ever...plowing through piles of dress shirts searching for that 16/34.
Anything for you my love!

Thanks for a great Saturday night date.
And the nail polish!;)

Just buying myself a little treat at the Nords pre-select shopping sale. 
 Prince Charming in case you were wondering, I did NOT have any sort of conversation about hiding purchases from our husbands with that lady standing next to me. And she does NOT wait until her husband goes golfing to bring her packages inside.;)
Mark the date. Nordstrom Anniversary sale starts July 20.

It's Friday. 
Shop. Eat cake. And wear something FABULOUS!

P.S. Here are a few fabulous Nord finds to peek at:
THIS blouse.
THESE booties.
THIS lipstick.
(Note: If you are looking for the perfect nude lip then you MUST check out that above link. 
LOVE IT! THIS lip kit is super cute too!)

A Long Awaited Welcome Home

We are back. We are exhausted. And this is the only family picture I took during the entire vacation. Whoops!
Hope you're having a wonderful summer. 
Stay cool. Be safe. And I'll be back in a bit after I do some catch up.

P.S. Look, I'm famous. Sorry, you have to scroll thru all the pics.
