Well just had to wish you all a happy halloween! And a Happy Harvest to those who don't celebrate Halloween. Have a safe and fun day/night.
K had to share this! LOL Josh had his Halloween party at his school yesterday! Yesterday he was Batman. Tonight he's being this guy! LOL Anyways, just at school alone, he came home with a huge bag full of goodies. So hilarious!
And to my sweet dear friend Deann, THANK YOU for your sweet gift in the mail the other day! You are just such an incredible person and I adore you tons!!!!
And my dad sent me this for the boys to play with this morning...let your kids try it. So cute!
And wow what a great Friday it is! Such a huge reason to celebrate! Anyways, just wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter! Last night after dinner, we ran by this store to pick up some last minute easter candy! LOL
I think I went overboard too! OH well! Anyways, as I was walking down the aisles, spotted these adorable pink shabby cups! OMG! Had to grab them! Aren't they cute! Certainly perfect for talking shabby with my girlfriends! LOL
Also, LOOOVE this magazine-Cottage Style! And had to snap a few to show you just how dh and I view different decorating styles! LOL I'm sitting there looking through this magazine and shabby daddy is like "yeah I like that" and "nooo I don't like that". Our styles are so different. But I'd say they are both pretty tasteful! So I had to share with you some pictures of what he likes and what I like! But I think in the end, we both will make a compromise. And choose a semi-shabby-retro-old-vintage-antique-dark kinda look! LOL I seriously think my cute hubby could go for this retro look..but more so in a basement, coffee shop or a den. Some place for him to invite his buds over for pool or something.
So here's what I came up with! LOL And....all these adorable goodies came from Gina Wina!
So I hope you all enjoy your beautiful Easter holiday! :) Smoochies!
Edited to add:
OMG so sorry I didn't tell you "what" store! LOL They came from Target~ and they were 30% off and they had matching salad plates, dinner plates and bowls and all those had scalloped edges! CUUUUTE!!!!
And I think last night we almost pulled an all nighter getting Princess' goodie bags all ready for her Valentines Party today! LOL Whew! Aren't these cuuute! I used my twin's awesome bag toppers! Gosh...these amazing designers make these projects soooo easy and just soo cuute! Oh and this morning, we woke up to sweet love cards daddy left! The kiddies just LOOOVED these! Totally sweet!
Hope you all have one LOOOOOOOVELY Valentines Day! It's more back to work and going to help out with that cuuuute lil princess party!
Before Xmas really hits and today was a waaaay productive day! LOL All three have coldies but that's not stopping their incredible energy! LOL Today we did the Gingerbread house and attacked cookies for Santa. I can be such an anal mom, wanting the house and cookies to look fabulous but definitely we let the kids take over these. LOL I'm so glad! I loooove what they created and they LOVED it even more with mommy and daddy cheering on their pure creativity. And today, my goodies I ordered from my amaaazing friend Kim, arrived! OMG Chayce looks darling in these! These are sooooo boutique chic....I think I'll have to see what else is up her sleeve! And omg her little card and how sweet they were packaged, well, I'm keeping all that! LOL Just sooo cute!!!!!
And for those who are signed up on our SMJ Mailing List, you all got a sweet freebie!
Only the SHABBIEST wishes to all you sweeeeetums! Okay Santa should be arriving soon so we'd better get our act in gear! LOL
And we are sooo not ready yet! LOL Way too many things going on! OH but of course I do have time to scrap! We did go see Santa last week and we got the cuuuuutest ornament! Isn't this adorable? I loove this and we plan on getting one every year.
And if you haven't bought this yet, RUN! Go to Gina's site and grab this adoooorable Jubilant kit! WAY YUM! I looooove all the stuff she has in it!!!! Just awesome!
Okay back to wrapping, painting, blogging, designing, cleaning, baking...you know the rest! LOL
Is sooooo when you go to see the real Santa and your baby boy HATES him! LOL Oh but the pictures are worth a thousand words right? LOL Really he was soo looking forward to sitting on Santa's lap and once he got there, he was miserable! So luckily I got a shot of this! LOL Priceless in this house!
It's SNOWING! And is soo magical! Really this is such fun...something new for us..and we are enjoying it! Right as we were going into Pottery Barn...just the right kinda of holiday shopping for us!
Then to top the day....some warm Starbucks lattes! Our friends here have made us even more addicted to this coffee than we ever have been! LOL
And then, LOOK at what I got in the mail!!!!! WOO HOO!!!! I was soo incredibly stoked to have ordered one of these babies right when Donna opened her store. YUM! Let me just say that this camera bag is even more INCREDIBLE in person! The thick canvasy material is soo sturdy....darling colors...awesome print...I looove the pocket, magnetic closure, adustable straps, buttons to secure the top even more..padding..this is no cheap bag! I am so glad I got it..and am even thinking of a one too! LOL I've gotten so many compliments on it too!
For Christmas! Okay I admit I'm missing home a tad now. But the idea of a White Christmas thrills me to death! We pulled out the ornaments the other day! FUN! The kiddies loved it! Can you see the love here? ROFL! No seriously...it's starting! Christmas ornaments are already getting broken...well thrown around because our little one thinks it's fun! LOL And I just saw the most AWESOME huge shabby thing the other day! Have to go snap a few of that! And to those with these HUGE MEGA Digital SLR cameras, what is the proper etiquette when going into a store? Do you just pull out your huge camera and start shooting? Or do you ask the owner politely if you can snap a few? I'd love to know! :) K I'll leave ya with a few!
Shabby Hubby's birthday was yesterday! :) So we had quite a full day. :) Went to church, played with lil friends. Then we went to run errands, find a few shabby thing and headed to Costco to get a few things. :) The boys had to have a Costco hot dog for lunch and miss priness a slice of their cheese pizza. :)
Then we came home. :) Pulled weeds...LOL...cleaned up while the boys napped. :) After an afternoon of reorganizing, cleaning and all that fun stuff, we headed out for Chris' birthday dinner. :) Fresh Choice resturant, our favorite but we go because the kiddies LOVE to eat there. :) They love to just graze all that yummy food! LOL Especially because they get to have dessert. LOL We ate dinner, walked around the mall and went to a carnival in town. The kids had so much fun and played a few games and won some prizes. :) Then we headed home to open some gifts and eat cake.
And last night I scrapped! LOL I really miss it and need to start waking up EARLY to do some more pages. Totally looking forward to summer so when the babies sleep in, I can get up and scrap! :) Of course miss Gina Wina came out with some new awesome felties! LOVE these! So I created this from a photo I got yesterday of Chris and his kiddies. :)
Well I hope you all have one fantastic day! There is soo much we have to do now it's not even funny! :) School is ending so tons to do! :) Have a fabulous holiday!
