Lemon Meringue

I'm going a little nutty over the yellow + white color combination this summer. Case in point-- check out about 1/10 of my Michael's stash from today ($6.00 for this bunch):

Clockwise from top right: $1.99 seersucker headband for Q, $1.00 set of pencils, $1.00 tissues, $1.00 notecard set, and middle $.99 vanilla cupcake travel candle. The candles, pencils, and tissues will be "favors" for Viv's 2nd b-day with the in-laws next weekend.

Here's some cutie tootie ribbon ($4.00 for all). Isn't the middle one very Orla but in pastels? Yumz!

And here's my new FAVORITE summer fragrance from Bath & Body Works!!!! Doesn't look like they carry the lotion online, but you can get it in stores. The lemon vanilla is better than the others, but the berry vanilla scent comes in a close second. The scent kinda reminds me of something nostalgic. Mmmmmmmmmm....ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

And here's my own little Lemon Meringue Pie in her pinstripe bathing suit from Target! <3

Happy weekending, all! xo

Happy Mom-oo's Day!

And Happy Mom-oo's Day to my own mum, Janet. From her pain-in-the-rear daughter. I'll be celebrating by doing something she loves, gardening! Planning on getting my annuals today and hopefully getting them in the ground today. Love you, Mom. :)

The Cure for Melancholy

Feast your eyes on these Japanese fabrics and items from Superbuzzy! Just received their most recent email newsletter. I think it may quite be impossible to look at these things and NOT feel happy.

And I think that Shinzi Katoh was directing this one right at me! :)

One more happy item that I've ever-so-slyly hinted to my hubby and mother that I want for my b-day in July:

When birthday cake is your favorite food, it's only appropriate to own a cake CARRIER, no?!

Oh, and happy Cinco de Mayo! I would love a nice salty-rimmed margarita right now. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Maybe I will enjoy one with my hubby tonight instead of going to Jazzercise. I've been a Jazzer-slacker this week, and I haven't been to class in over a week. Bah. Last week, I could blame my lower back issues, but this week, I have no physical excuse. Luckily, my bud will be joining me next week which will give me some incentive (I'm counting on you, Danielle!).

P.S. Wish me luck-- I bought 5 Powerball tickets for tonight's drawing. My favorite number is 5, and I just noticed the date today is 5/5/10!!!!! I never buy lotto tix. Maybe today's my lucky day!!!

Feeling Bipolar

Hello little chickadees. Hope your Monday wasn't so bad. I'm having one of those off-weeks. Been there? Like one minute, something makes me super happy. Then the next, I'm freaking out, angsting and being a miserable all-around mom and wife. FTW. No big lemons-- just lots of little needly pricky things that annoy me and make me fixate.

I do want to gush about a great Etsy experience I had! Today, they celebrated Viv's birthday at daycare. This year, instead of buying junky crap that parents probably throw away anyway, I ended up contacting Kristin through her Etsy shop, KBExquisites. For $3.00 apiece + s/h, she whipped up and sent these SUPER CUTE reusable snack bags. They are washer/dryer safe and lined with food-safe nylon. Seriously, I placed the order on Tuesday, and I got them on FRIDAY. Talk about a lifesaver! Mom sort of kind of dropped the ball on the daycare party, and in fact, I even bought Kroger m&m cookies instead of baking. I usually at LEAST can muster up some bake & breaks!!!

She did all 10 in different prints, but these 3 of the girl fabrics were my faves:

I added the lil' tags.

Have a great rest of the week! xo

Happy Birthday, Viv!

Happy 2nd birthday to my little baby girl today. I love you soooooooooooo much, and I can't believe you've already been here with us for 2 whole years. You are so smart and funny, and I'm so glad that you are finally warming up to your mommy (she's been a daddy's girl since birth!). Sorry your sister had to throw up this morning and steal the limelight from you. But we'll make it up to you! xoxo
