The Polka Dot Chair

I WANT TO MAKE THIS!!! Another blog found from aimless internet wandering πŸ™‚ As we all know I’m on a bit of a skirt sewing kick – and now that the weather is turning (much to my dismay – I’m so not ready to say goodbye to the summer sunshine) I know I’ll be spending a whole lot more time at my sewing machine! This has promptly been added to my list – a fantastic tutorial from The Polka Dot…

Some changes

I’m making some changes to the blog (okay I’m paying someone to do it for me. lol) so it will likely be down for the next couple of days. As a result I’ll be extending the Hapari giveaway until next week (more details to come) and there will be additional ways to receive extra entries! Stay tuned!!!!…

OfficeMax – Elf Yourself

I see them every year…and every year I laugh so hard I nearly pee my pants *nearly*. I finally got my act together to do one of our little family and again, can’t stop laughing! It’s particularly funny for me because my husband is a big of a grinch (slowly but surely he’s coming to the festive side of things) so seeing him as an elf doing a disco jig – is almost too much! Enjoy!!! I can’t say I…

Foam Curlers – The Trick

I’m sure you all remember them – bubblegum pink foam curlers that we sported overnight for some lovely locks in the morning. It’s a pretty fond memory for me though I’m not entirely sure why…but I was SO excited when my daughter wanted to get some at Walmart one day. *hip hip hooray* They were only $10 and a fun way to bring some of my childhood into her life. And they aren’t just pink either, but yellow, green, and…

We’re off to see the Wizard…

Oh yes!!! I am SO excited and have been keeping this secret from my darling daughter for weeks now! WEEKS!!!! My mom is taking us on a fantastic girls night to see the Wizard of Oz on stage! I CAN’T WAIT!!! In the past few months my kids have started loving the movie, which just warms my heart…and to be able to take Brooklyn to see it on stage (SHE LOOOOOVES THE THEATER) is just going to be magical. Especially…

Ringing in the big 3-0

It’s true….this year I celebrated the start to a whole new decade. I was completely freaked out – not so much because of the whole turning 30 thing (though it does sound weird to say)….but because ALL OF A SUDDEN I am 30. The past 10 years have gone by SO quickly that I’m worried in the blink of an eye I’ll be 40…Life is going so quickly and I want to make sure I REALLY enjoy it….remember it….and love…

Surfing Competition Cocoa Beach

For the past while I have been *dreaming* plans up of taking the family somewhere to watch a surf competition. Brent and I have discovered a real love for the beach (I always knew I had it…but May’s trip to Mission Beach put it in full force) and think it would be so fun to watch a surfing competition….Brent would love to take lessons and get good – I’m a disappointing wife and am much too chicken (there are sharks…

Scamming the Tooth Fairy

Or keeping the magic alive. LOL My daughter has it down….she is building quite a little relationship with her tooth fairy. It all started in April when she wrote her tooth fairy a letter asking for a toy. Now, when my friend’s daughter made the same request in exchange for her tooth (instead of money), her tooth fairy replied saying “I am not Santa Claus” Heehee. Anyways, Brooklyn had not at that point not even lost a tooth (I know!)…but…
