Preparing for October

Posted on August 20, 2010. Filed under: Good Finds, Me, Myself, and I | Tags: , , , , , , , |

MB and I are well underway in planning her upcoming birthday (yes in October). In my evenings while watching big brother I have searched the web for inspirations and ideas. It’s a spa/daytime slumber party and of course a primary color must be orange. Such a girly it!.

Just sharing a few of the gorgeous party themes/ideas I am using for inspiration! And I am so excited to be working with Chickabug again on the design!

Ideas from TomKat, As the Forest (e) Grows….and a few other that I forgot. If it’s you let me know…so many great ideas out there and I want to give credit to those great parties!

If anyone has any fun ideas I would love to hear them!!! Though TB is probably going to go ape with all the girly-ness coming his way…so far a good sport only nixed the glitter hairspray for fear of never getting glitter out of the house.

20 perfect toes

Posted on June 1, 2010. Filed under: Me, Myself, and I | Tags: , , , |

Today Maddie and I had a date for pedicures. She even chose to stay home and go for pedi’s versus panning for gold. My little girly girl.

She picked out our color and we both got flowers and bling on our big toes. She loves the experiences and its a fun Mommy and me date.

As I went to pay the bill it dawned on me…this is the same price I used to pay for just myself. The old days when I went to a true spa, spent an hour getting pampered with calming music taking in all the ambiance of relaxation. Now we have the sunlight shining in, nothing spectacular in the ambiance, a nice massage chair…and not 10 but 20 perfect toes.

Those 20 perfect toes are worth it. Watching her tiptoe to the car making sure she doesn’t smudge. How she kept asking all morning if it was time to go for pedi’s yet. Having her choose to stay home with me and go for pedicures versus her friends panning for gold. Someday she won’t choose to stay around with her mom, but for now while she does I am going to eat up every minute.
