Friday Wardrobe: My IT jeans. I LOVE THEM. Do yourself a favor and go grab yourself a pair. Brand-Big Star. Black on black and a colorful scarf. I am so lazy when it comes to my hair so lately I've been wearing this side pony messy bun thing. It probably looks hideous but I enjoy it now and again. Hey, I don't have to wash or brush my hair with this style. Just get up and go! Wooohooo!
Late-nite internet surfing. I want this rug from PB (pottery barn). It would look absolutely dapper in my sun room. It's on sale! Not on sale enough for me but I really want it! Maybe if my stinkin' hospital bill hadn't just arrived I would have considered. A new rug from Pottery Barn or removal of an ovary? Sucks I didn't get to choose. Welcome to life. I also ran into this baggy sweater jacket thing from Gap. Looks cozy! I don't shop Gap too much anymore. Since they got their new look a couple years ago I swear everything went up about $20 and that annoyed me. However in the 90's-I lived at Gap. I refuse to buy anything full price at Gap cuz eventually EVERYTHING in that store goes on sale. Shopping at this store for my childresn on the other hand is a whole other story. I just picked up this Junk Food T for Lucy-9.99 regularly 28.50!-Whatever! $30 bucks for a T for a 2 yr. old who's going to spill ketchup and gogurt all over it! Who remembers playing with Strawberry Shortcake? My friend had the WHOLE collection-spoiled brat! The nowaday ones just aren't the same. Miss you original 80's toys. By the way, I would totally wear this T in my size. Anyone wanna buy me one for Christmas? Santa also ordered THESE for Lulu. I had a pair of these when I was a tot. I'm sure I'll have to bribe her to wear them. Or call her Princess Pocahontas.
Welcome to poor kitchen planning on our part! The "main" kitchen utensil/knife/hold everything/always messy drawer is located right next to the stove. Who ever is hanging out by the stove is constantly getting a booty smack which means "Move it!"(Is that why my husband stands there so often? It's all making sense to me now:D) This weekend we officially named it the "butt drawer".
Kelson thinks it's pretty funny. We are such lame parents-teaching our kids to use the word butt. There's my IT jeans again.
I was up and ready to go at....
Winterizing the wardrobe again. There is no way I can wear a short sleeved T in these parts in the winter. Who said you had to wear a solid colored thermal under your T? Love this Saturday chill look! There's my IT jeans AGAIN. Two days in a row now. If I were in high school that would be social suicide!~Wearing the same jeans twice in one week. EWW! Ed Hardy shirt...Nordstrom Rack! FYI: Norstrom Rack has had A LOT of Ed Hardy and True Religion stuff lately.
Martha Stewart wanna be Strikes Again!I've been crafting again. What is wrong with me? Lucy was invited to a princess birthday party (that she slept through & I chose not to wake her. Mean mommy!) so I hand crafted some princess fancies (tutus and crowns). I really enjoy wrapping packages too. Anyone want to hire me for the Holidays? I'm available any time any day except 1:00am Christmas Day. I will be busy wrapping my own gifts at that time. Packaging Specialties is one of my favorite wrap product stores. Look how darling THESE little guys are! They also have cute tags. Their ribbon and paper selections is like a candy store for me. I want both of these papers. (pictured at right.)
A little Saturday night (and Sunday and probably Monday) delight. This ice cream is some love for the thighs. I'm pretty sure it's about 1200 calories per lick. These two flavors are sheer scooping enjoyment. Yes, it will kill you. Do NOT eat this brand straight from the carton. These cartons are too little. Before you know it you'll have eaten the whole darn thing and feel like crap.
Special Delivery for a Special Princess Named Pookie!
Norstrom Private Holiday Shopping Party entrance ticket-I can take a guest! Who wants to be my guest? Last year they served killer hot chocolate and shrimp cocktail. I love this event. They close the store down and only those with a ticket get to enter. There's carolers, live music, fancy nibbles and 10x1 on the Nordstrom rewards points~ SCORE!
Also got my issue of domino (house/style mag.-it's a good one. Quirky style, just like me) and an extremely generous thank you note. Thank you so much Shana. Your words meant a lot!
Princess Homework: When was the last time you wrote a thank you note to another princess?
P.S. Tomorrow's Trendy Tuesday is my favorite so far- So excited to share!
