Makeup Delusions

OK so I have been soooo busy admiring everyone's projects on her that I haven't posted in a while but I felt the need to share a picture of a heavenly combination!!! MAC Makeup and Cupcakes!!! Woohoo!!! On a less fun note I am potty training Ethan and it is sooo confusing. There are so many different ways and methods I think I am trying a combination of all at the same time and confusing both of us!!

OK so obviousley I have a love for cupcakes and all things cupcake oriented!!! A long time ago, like 5 or 6 years ago I was at the Bumbershoot music Festival in Seattle and I kept seeing these Pink stickers that said "Legalize Frostitution" I got ahold of some and I think I still have one somewhere. So upon investigating I learned that that slogan belongs to one of the best cupcake shops in the world Cupcake Royale that is right in Seattle and surrounding locations also. I used to make yearly or more trips to Seattle and I have never been to any of these shops and I am bummed about it!! I am making it a personal goal of mine to make it to this shop within one year. I follow their blog and keep reading the RAVE reviews about their
cupcakes. Check them out!!

St.Patricks Day Festivities

I got that Festive piece of Fabric at Wal-Mart for less than one dollar!!

Caution!!! Lots of photos!!

So St.Patricks day is one of my favorite days of the year and I made it official by naming my daughter Ireland..Haha. I made Corned beef and Cabbage and bought some Irish Soda bread and Dubliner Cheese at New Seasons market. Ireland liked the Red Potatoes in the stew but Ethan would have nothing to do with it!! We went to the Grand Lodge to see the Irish dancers and enjoy the Festivities there and it was stressful but fun and next year we shall be more organized in all aspects if possible!!

I got my Photo Editing software out of storage today and I am really excited to start using it!! I would like to post at least once a week with and edited photo!!

This is my Christmas present from Tyler and it is the first piece of jewelry besides our wedding rings that he has given me!! If you know me you know that I like anything that sparkles and shines so I wouldn't have minded if he got me a Swarovski pendant as long as it was pretty but he got me this pretty little heart!!!

OK I am officially obsessed with finding the perfect purse right now and here are some of the candidates... I am pretty sure I want Black and white floral with a splash of color and I am also sure I don't need a Coach purse unless I find a super deal at the Outlet!! I need a bag big enough to double as a diaper bag when I am going somewhere other than the grocery store or Target!!

First weekend of march and visit to Chuck E Cheese

On Friday we went to Chuck E Cheese with our Friend Chris who came in from Medford to see us!!! Tyler predicted that Ethan would not have fun but he loved it!!! (except when he actually saw Chuck E) He was half esleep and told me that he had fun at "Mac and Cheese", that is what he calls it. They have gotten really small since I remember but maybe that is just the one we went to. It was super fun and I am considering having Ethans Birthday there!!

I also got these Clippies at Gymboree for $2.99 and I am considering using my 40% off coupon at Jo-Ann for som Zebra pring fabric to make her a little dress. The patterns are $1.99 right now too!! Can I make it a Ten dollar trip to the craft store??

So I just bought all this new scrap booking paper and embellishments to start Ireland's scrapbook and other various projects.
I want to make tons of stuff and I don't even know where to start!!!

Shopping and Great deals

I was able to hit up some of my favorite stores this weekend for some great deals!! The Faerys were $3.99 each and I got 4 so maybe I can make something out of them during the year and at Christmas use them as Ornaments. We also went to the Gymboree Outlet cuz I knew the cupcake stuff would be on clearance!!

New Hair

I got my Haircut about a week ago when I was going to take Ethan in and he flipped out and chose to remain a nature child!! So I just had them cut my hair!!
My husband didn't notice for almost 24 hours. He came into the living room and looked right at me after seeing the charge for Great clips on the online banking and asked me who got their hair cut!!haha I said "I don't know Tyler!" and he said it again and I finally said I did and he just looked at me and walked back into the bedroom in embarrassment!! I like my hair and I am going to keep it pretty short from now on because all I have to do to make it look halfway decent is blow dry it so that works for me!!
