Such a Happy Surprise.......

To my delight I received a tiny little package in the mail today from my Wendy sister. And we all know that the best things come in small packages....

I was soo excited to find out that I am now the proud owner of (not one, but two) Wendy original scrabble pendants from her Shabby Nest etsy shop. (Hey Wend, don't panic,...the crown does have a bail. In my ecstatic frolicking I just didn't notice that it had popped off. I just popped it right back on. :)) I adore them both and had to immediately wear one of them.
My quarter pint who I nearly share the same birthday with also received a darling little sprinkling of pixie dust from her aunt Wendy. That is her on that tiny little hanging pillow. Isn't that adorable. (Sorry I am such a bad photographer. I hardly do any of my sisters magical little creations justice.) In my own defense I also have a poopy camera. :)

Thank You for spoiling me big sis!!! You honestly made my day!!!

A 'Flower Shower'

Last Saturday I helped with a baby shower. My friends Portia and Jen get all of the credit for the super clever ideas that brought this one together. They decided to throw it at 9:30 am (yikes) and make it for breakfast. That turned out to be a HUGE hit, and everyone was bright eyed, bushy tailed, and loved it!

We decorated with big old flowers free-handed out of 12 by 12 scrapbook paper. (my only idea)

Adorable cookie bouquets. (courtesy of Jen)

We made baby hair flowers and bows for the up and coming baby girl instead of playing shower games. Portia displayed samples by hanging them from her chandelier. It was so cute!!! It just screamed girly-ness!

And of course....CHOCOLATE!!!

Wardrobe Embellishment Part III

Are your flip flops boring??

Embellish them!!!! :)

Hot glue and flowers from the craft store are an easy fix.
These ones I sewed by hand and topped off with an over sized button and embroidery floss.

Summer is already hot, but not always in the right way! Why not spice it up? LOVE THE CUTE FEET!!!

Absentee Blogger

I'm sorry I have been busy, the most fantastical way!!! As many of you know (because my big sis spilled the beans)...Wednesday was my birthday. Well, was the best birthday of my now 35 year old life!!!!! (Not even exaggerating!!) My husband and two of my dear friends have been in cahoots for months. How could I be so clueless, you ask?? I am still trying to figure that out myself. (I think that all of the people dearest to me are really good liars!! :):)) I was taken out to lunch by a few close friends and in the midst of our frolicking one of my dearest friends in the world (from Utah), whom I am lucky to see once a year, came up behind me and asked if she was too late to join us. I (according to all standers by because it is all a blur to me now) did a double take, gasped, screamed, and made everybody at Mimi's stare as I jumped up, hugged her and started to publicly sob. The first thing out of my mouth was "how long do I get to keep you?" (Just assuming that she is like MY gift!!!) TILL MONDAY she says. I think then I cried more, and we chatted laughed and gorged our way through lunch. Needless to say I have been playing soooo hard this week, and will continue to play until Monday evening.

It all sounds so silly while typing this out, but I felt like the girl in the movie when this event took place. They made me feel like the most important person in the world, and I am sooo grateful. It is like a once in a life time fairytale experience. Two months worth of emails were exchanged, Calls were made, flights were debated, and plans were orchestrated all while I was in my own little world of laundry and adding up weight watchers points. My husband has taken time off of work and been mister mom so that we could shop, dine, watch movies, and eat chocolate. (Ya,...weight watchers points,...Not So Much!!!) They made my birthday, which I was sort of dreading, into a whole week of celebration. Thank You JENNIFER EAMES....(who by the way had the nerve to call me the day before she flew over to as me if "I was going to do anything fun for my birthday or stay home and wallow in self pity?") STINKER!! Thanks to my sweet sweet hubby and my other best Jen (Frank) friend who was in on all of the conniving plotting. I feel so loved!!!

Wardrobe Renovation Part II

Four shirts that I never wore are now........................

Two shirts I just ADORE!!! I know that they are very girly and frilly. Possibly even a little 'clown'-esq, but LUCKY ME that is exactly what I clothe myself in on a daily basis!!! :)

So go find some of your clothes that just aren't doing it for you and see if you can't just spice them up a bit. Everybody needs some sassy in their wardrobe.
