It's HER Birthday and I'll Cry if I Want To

 To the most beautiful girl in the world...
7 years old already?
I refuse to accept it.
No matter how old you grow may you always know how much you are loved.
Even when you're a bratty teenager!
You're something special Lulu. Never forget that. 
Love, Mom

P.S. Happy Easter!

Because I'm A (wannabe) Ballerina

I'm the luckiest girl alive. I teach ballet and love every minute of it. Have you tried a ballet barre fitness class yet? It will kick your &#%! I'm telling you, ballet is not for wimps. If you're a wannabe ballerina like me you may want to consider the following:

These are so darling! No ballet skills required to slip these on your tippy toes!

This top is hot, hot, hot! 
Join a ballet class and your back won't be shy about playing peek-a-boo. 

There are no words for how I feel about this dress except for


I dare you to try this! Good luck! 
May you find your inner ballerina inside. 
It's a fun thing to find. I promise!

There She Goes

 I spy with my little eye a project brewing.

Spring break is over, Grandpa and Grandma went home, and Prince Charming is out of town.
So... naturally it's project time at my house.
See all those little lines in the table pic above? Around here we call those crumb keepers. They drive me bananas so they need to go bye-bye. Yes, buying a new table would be much easier. And by the time I'm done with the thing probably more cost effective. But, what's the fun in that?
I like practicing my french (aka naughty words) and inhaling brain cell killing fumes.
Good times! 

 I'm using Annie Sloan paint for the first time and I'm really giddy about it.
Crossing my fingers (but not holding my breath) that I'll complete the beast tomorrow. 
Stay tuned.

These chairs are certainly fit for any royal family.

But this princess is still crushing on these mint little darlings.
{all chairs found here.}

Prince Charming I know you are sitting in your hotel room right now rolling your big blue eyes at my latest project. If you come home and I'm STILL not done it was most likely due to your mini blue eyed baby boy who takes after you. He's trouble you know. Trouble!
BTW, miss you.
P.S. And if I don't finish I know you'll help me even though you say you won't!;)

Around the HOME Sweet HOME

They say you style your house similar to the way you style yourself.

What do you think? Are we a match made in heaven?

Still searching for the perfect shade of mint for my guest bath.
I'm determined to check this project off the "To Do" list this week!

Picked up these cuties at Target over the weekend.
Knowing me they will sit for months with no pictures in them because who has time to dive into cyber picture land?

It's Monday...make it a COLORFUL one!

P.S. THIS. Yes or No?

sweater: american eagle (old) | shirt: anthropologie | jeans: anthropologie | shoes: sam edelman (old)
 perfectly colored mint tote: gap
Who's that? Can it be? Is that Mrs. Princess Pookie? I didn't recognize her. No sweats? No pajamas? No sweaty workout clothes? Something must be wrong. Seriously wrong. Either that or there must be a shoe sale going on some where. Does she have mascara on too? Fancy. BUT, could someone tell her to edit that headband from her ensemble? It's totally cheesy!
Fact: See those shoes I'm wearing? They win the shoe popularity contest by a landslide. I get asked (a lot) where I got them. Answer: Some random bargain basement store in NY. And to think, I almost walked away from them.
Happy Friday Everyone.

Shop. Eat cake. MOVE. And wear something fabulous. Like THESE.

P.S. Geesh. This picture is not good. Sorry bout it. My photographer is 10 yrs old and has a really annoying mom.

Guaranteed to make you run super duper DUPER fast.
(I would link them up but I can't find them on-line. Picked mine up at Lady Foot Locker.)

Buy it, cook it, eat it.
Delicious! It will make you poop. It's packed with all sorts of goodness.
Buy and read about it HERE
(I purchased at Whole Foods)

Served with grilled talapia and other good-for-you food.
That's what I call healthy!
(Bonus: my kids loved it too)

Assignment: Stop reading this post right now and do 25 jump jacks, 15 push ups, and 20 alternating lunges. I mean it. Right now! Feel like a super hero? Do it twice.

Happy Friday!
