ballet party at a local studio

Tulle draped tables set with gold and pink tableware.

Ballerina cupcake toppers from Amongst Lovely Things (hand crafted vintage inspired party decor via Etsy)  atop simple cupcakes from the Bi-Lo.  Why splurge…when you can buy low.

A table set with champagne and roses (more Bi-Lo.)

A cake topper I crafted to compliment the cupcakes…something to dress up her plain (um, Bi-Lo) cake…we're fancy like that.  "Honey, you don't want anything on the cake?"

A champagne toast.  Cheers to the birthday girl!

Time for their ballet performance. 


Roses for her ballerinas.


ps:  if you see a big gold P floating around, littering the atmosphere…forget you read this post

Happy Easter

Just a quick walk from school, Mischief volunteered our house for the kindergarten egg hunt.  Gulp.  We cut, clipped and cleaned….prepping the front yard for little scavengers.  What took three adults thirty minutes to hide, took this group less than five to find.

To Do List

If I quit my job I would…
paint, learn new mediums, daydream with my children, go on picnics, have a spotless home, plant flowers, take my girls to museums, exercise, and take better care of myself.

So, I quit my job.  Now I...
do laundry, pick up legos, referee little girl tantrums, do laundry, carpool, deconstruct forts, do laundry, and have big girl tantrums of my own.  I can feel my brain shrinking and my rear end expanding.

Determined to reorganize my to do list.  So, I'm retiring from the blog for a while…until then, join me on Instagram here.  I promise…no photos of laundry.

Okay, so we finally had a picnic…
scratch one from the to do list!

Can't wait…The Monuments Men is opening this weekend.

 Monumental?  Me actually going to an adult movie…Annie, The Lorax, and a menagerie of Disney characters play on a constant loop at our house.


Well…it was more Ocean's Eleven than Saving Private Ryan.  I think I'll try renting the Rape of Europa, more information here

Clean and Bright

"Better keep yourself clean and bright;
you are the window through which
you must see the world"
