STL Home Show

"Holy Stroller Hell" was the quote of the day. This place was crazy crowded. Apparently we were not the only people who got free tickets to the Home Show this weekend. Very fun Sunday, I can't really complain. Here are a few cute pics from the day..........

Hope everyone had a nice weekend:)

Hello Kitty

The girls both had to visit the pediatrician this week. Kayla is getting ready to start Kindergarten this summer and she needs to be updated on her State required vaccinations that I have been able to avoid until now. Bummer. Paige also got two shots. FUN! Paige was typical.....screaming as soon as her doctor touched her. I really don't even think she noticed the shots because she was so upset about the rest. She is 22lb (40%) and 75% on height. Healthy as could be. Kayla was sooooo brave. She did not cry at all. Her lips did curl down into a little frown right before the shot, but she was such a big girl about it. I told her we could go shopping and get her some clothes to take to Florida in a couple weeks. We have been at odds about what she wants to where lately and I thought it would be best to let her have some say in the clothes she chose. So the end result you will see below. Probably not what I would have picked, but she did look cute and all four things only cost $35 at Macy's plus each thing she picked mixes and matches. I do like that, whether I am ready for her Independence or not:) The handmade hat she is wearing was given to her by a friend. I had to throw in a picture of Paige from today with her static hair, she needs a haircut.

I did get that little box of Sun Proof Fun (SPF, clever) for my upcoming trip to FLORIDA and the mini lip gloss advertisement on the left is my FREE gift. yay. i will look so darn pretty. peace.

I use the website all the time to get my essential baby needs such as diapers, soaps, wipes, lotions, sippy cups, binkies, and so much more. They have literally everything from cute shoes and clothing to car seats and novelty gifts. They have very competitive pricing and will accept coupons. First time buyers get $10 off your order and every time someone buys from and uses my referral code I get $5 in my account. For Valentine's day I get $10 for each referral.

The best thing about them is any order over $49 is free shipping all the time and it literally arrives the next day on your door step. That is amazing. It is a great place to register for baby showers also. Be sure to tell your friends about this great website. I love it!

Caution: gross post ahead

Ok this all started with a bright idea to get "healthy".... if I was better at link-ups I would give you my recent posts.....but if you really care about me you will know! So Poor Pitiful Pearl, who I totally heart, BTW. gave me a recipe for a green juice and book: Raw Food Detox Diet. Ok, I have read the book and i sort of want it to be my bible.
I have been pooping like a machine because of this stuff. WOW the power of raw clean out fruits and veggies is amazing. It is a true cleanser....I have never seen this color or amount of shit coming out of my body. ever. b4. Holy pun there (swear) well I am going to stick with the plan for now.....;P


I have been so busy lately with life in general. Every night of the week is filled up with running here and there. This week we finally refinanced our house, and I got the taxes done! Whew, crazy week. I still somehow managed to take a little time to myself last night and get crafty. I have been so inspired recently by a few bloggers who craft anything from baby blankets to extravagant dresses made out of up cycled vintage clothing. I always love something handmade and I typically buy most of my handmade clothing. I really like to buy new handmade clothing to wear to concerts, bit of a bad habit I think;) Well, Saturday night we are going with a fun group of friends to see Gov't Mule and the Pageant, and I have been itching to buy something. A dear friend of mine just returned my sewing machine, and I decided I would make something to wear Saturday night!!!

I totally up cycled the cutest pair of jeans! They turned out amazing and I can't wait to wear them. It was a bit of a challenge, but I completed the entire project in about 5 hours and did not stop until I was done. I knew that if I laid it down there was slim to no chance of finishing the pants by Saturday. I did put down a bottle of wine while crafting, and that can lead to lots of upside down and inside out seam ripping, but the final product still turned out adorable. I even hand sewed a few embellishments on at the end to finish the look. I am very proud of myself for starting and finishing all in one night, and I can't wait to wear them Saturday. Made by ME!

Too much?

When I was a little girl...all I can remember is wanting to grow up and be something incredible......I played piano, but that was not "cool" to me at the time. Now that I am 31 years old, I wish I would have stayed with it. Most of my friends played sports and my family was not really into that, so when I got into high school I dabbled a little, but nothing extraordinary. Kayla is interested in so many things right now, and I LOVE IT! I know one day she will pick something and excel, but for now she can do anything her heart desires! But when is it too much? The other day she asked about Ice Skating...Really?
Well, for now she is having so much fun and I am having too much fun watching her grow into the most confident, strong, free-willed lady I ever met!
