A Sparkly New Year

Dear Santa,
So I know Christmas is over but, I REALLY like this bag. Like REALLY like it A LOT. So, what do you think? Could I have a do over? It would be the perfect touch to bring in the new year. Come on big guy, it's covered in red SPARKLES! I know even you can appreciate that.

P.S. I forgot to mention it's on sale.
P.S.S. This skirt is the dreamiest thing I've ever laid eyes on.

Super Special

This year I had a favorite gift.
Not because of value.
Favorite gifts rarely fall into the expensive category. Right?

Kelson picked out these (faux) diamond studs for me. All by himself. 
Just for me. 
he used his own money. 
When he handed them to me Christmas morning it was completely unexpected. 
I was touched. 
I was thankful. 
I cried inside a little but didn't show it because he'd be embarrassed!
Mom's can be soooo embarrassing you know.

The earrings are absolutely perfect and I will treasure them.
Thank you Kels. You're my favorite first born kid. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
Our new home is slowly shaping into a livable space. We're loving it.
I promise. Pics to come soon.

We're Home

Mind Doodles:
"Potttery Barn couch there, new table here, paint this, cute print will work there, this is the perfect spot for the chalkboard, need rug 1, rug 2, and rug 3 here, here, and here. I wonder how many minutes it will take my children to muck up this hardwood floor?"

We're officially in and spent our first night here. 
The whole thing is pretty unreal, yet amazingly fantastic!

Today I bought a house. No big deal.
Just a house. :)
Stay tuned for pics.

These sunglasses are FAR too large but I love them times a million!

 scarf: target | shirt: j.crew | jacket: forever 21 | skirt: target |
 tights: anthropologie | shoes: forever 21

How about lets take the outfit I wore to church on Sunday and turn it into a Fabulous Fashion Monday? What a great idea! I'm sure the actual outfit I wore on Friday consisted of  PJ pants (with a tear up the bum. yes. this is true.) and a hoodie covered in boogers (last week we had a house full of sickies).

It's Monday.
Make it a great one.
And you might as well shop.  Eat cake. And wear something FABULOUS too.

This week is moving week. 
I've got a serious case of the crazy brains!

I Work Out

Darn you Lululemon. 
Come on now. How am I supposed to keep up?
My two classes a week teaching job isn't cutting it. 
Your Holiday collection is just too much for me to handle. 
Cute. Cute. Cute.
P.S. Did you do something a little special yesterday?

Save The Date

You have anything special planned today?
Me either. But I'm thinking there should
be some kind of something special going on.
How about 12 new pairs of shoes?
Maybe 12 extra bites of chocolate cake?
After all we will never see a date like this again. 
That's worth at least chat. Right?

Make today a little special. 
Kiss a little longer, send a thoughtful love note, take a moment to appreciate.
Enjoy your day of specialness.

I'm liking the looks of this trend already!
A few TRENDY things I'd like to see in my bag are:
THIS crazy creepy bracelet.
THESE shades of grey.
(No, I have not read that book.)
Leg Lovin' anyone?
(I would TOTALLY wear THESE.)
A pair of THESE runners.
(These are my FAVORITE flavor workout shoe currently. Buy some. They will be your favorite too!)
Do you DARE? Chicken!

Weekend At My House

Do you believe in Santa?
I do. That is if he drops off a beautiful crystal blue swimming pool with water slide, diving board, and pool house all set up and ready go at my  new house. And while I'm at it.... it might as well include a pool boy. Oh, and butler because everyone needs a butler.

This weekend we traveled to the "North Pole" on the "Polar Express". 
In other words we drove over six hours round trip to hop on a train in the middle of the dessert to pay a butt load of money for nasty crap hot chocolate and Christmas caroling.
It was a gay old time.
At least the bell they gave us was cute.

Please note: I'm not griping, I'm just sayin. The kids enjoyed it so what does it matter what I think? Right? For what it cost me I could have bought a new chair but, it's all about the children. 
All about the children.

Happy Monday.
Make it a great one!

P.S. THIS is the best candy cane you will ever eat in your entire life!

Isn't it fabulous?

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

All hail to the placing of the address plaque!
Yesterday our soon-to-be new home became an actual place. 
A spot on a map. 
A location to be found.
There is a piece of me that is not fully convinced that this house is actually going to be ours.
We're going to have a place to settle in to.
We're going to have walls to paint. (get over it Prince Charming, it's inevitable)
And...the road to "house poor" begins due to massive amounts of landscaping, new furniture, and all those other home expenses that add up so quickly.
Words cannot describe my excitement.
The house is turning out better than I had imagined.
It's time.
It's time to call Arizona our home. 
I'm ready!

Weekend At My House

Kelson's Wardrobe Annoyances:
"Mom, why do you make me dress like a j.crew model?"

Lucy's Lazy Ways:
Her dirty underwear was laying on my bedroom floor (which is downstairs). I asked her to go put it in her laundry basket (which is upstairs). Later I noticed she was wearing two pairs of underwear, one of which was the dirty pair. She was "too tired" to take it all the way upstairs.

Family Fun Snowglobe Craft:
Why are these type of activities never as much fun as I imagine in my head?

Fashion Faux (fur) Pas:
Prince Charming called me "cavewoman" all day.
He thinks he funny. 

Happy Monday.
Make it a GREAT one!
