Kids Tree

The girlies got their own tree this year...


 I put it up in the playroom and let LA go to town decorating it.


She was adamant on putting a star on top, so we picked out this ugly one from the dollar store and decided to paint it.


 I let her pick out what color to paint and surprisingly she did not pick pink.




I bought some ornaments of her favorite things off ebay...


Plus any other ornament more fitting for her tree than mine :)


She loves it.


So does this one.



I also put the felt tree back up again.


they had fun with it for about 3 minutes.

Girlies and Leaves

 My inlawas have a lot of trees at their house, which means lots of leaves in the fall.


These girls had a blast playing in them...


this one wanted to eat all the leaves...



Heres a little instagram video I made of LA goofin around in the leaves...


Glad I dont have to rake those suckers...





Friday Im in love...

 Wine Ice cream...Ill take it...


I have been searching for a new bedspread for LAs bed.  I had a really cute one from Urban Outfitters, but it shredded the first time i put it in the wash.  Pretty sure she would LOVE this one...


They have an astronaut one that is super cool too!


this cracked me up for a second...


Im coveting this phone case/wallet.  Big Time.  I love everything about it.  except the $284 price tag.

Coolest leggos around! (Game of Thrones)


I love this little Paris skyline wall decal.  I cant figure out how to purchase it, but I really want it for the girls room.  LA is obsessed with Paris.  All of her "friends" supposedly live there.


Happy Friday!!

Im dreaming...

...of a white Christmas...Tree.

Advent Calendars

Im slowly working on some advent calendar ideas for the girls this year.  I'm up to 20 Christmas books for my book a day advent calendar.. Hopefully I can score 4 more this week and get them wrapped by next weekend. Im also working on an ornament advent calendar for the girlies too.

meanwhile i was looking up other ideas and came across something i should try...
I could get on board with this idea...A bottle  a day till Christmas Eve?
Of course I wouldn't want to leave Mr H out...


Mr H is hauling Christmas out of the attic this week.  Im pumped.  Hope to have my halls decked by the weekend!!

Friday Im in love...

Happy Friday.  Its been a long week over here.  Im looking forward to catching up with my besties this weekend and having a long overdue girls day.  im sure there will be lots of gossiping and wine guzzling going on.  just what i need.

Here are some awesome things i came across this week...
This whole apartment is pretty awesome, but Im especially in love with the dining room.  maybe its the light fixture?  or the chairs?  or the mix of  wood with the black and white?  i dont know, but i love it.


i have no idea why, but this thing had me totally LOLing...


this is BY FAR the cutest kiddo kitchen i have ever seen.

  
i have threatened to duct tape my child to her bed on numerous occasions this week. she is up and down all night lately.  ive heard success stories in alarm clocks that tell them when to get out of bed.  this one is super cute.  i might give it a try...


i dont think i would put it on my car, but for $5 i think i have to have this bill murray decal.


its almost as good as this bill Murray onesie...

i love bill Murray obviously

speaking of onesies...I ordered this one for my little peanut this week...

she will wear this the whole month of December. 
Happy Friday!

thrift store finds

Ive gotten pretty lucky at the thrift store lately.
i scooped up a plain old basket recently for 50 cents, took it home and had some fun with spraypaint...


heres what it looked like at first...


now its home to little shoes!


Im Dutch- so i have a soft spot for anything with wooden shoes or a windmill.  this vintage tray was on a clearance rack at the thrift store for a buck.  1 friggin dollar. its so cute!


now it lives in my dining room!


this tree we found over the weekend was a total score!


I wanted to get a little pink tree for the girls room this year. so when we spotted this one with a 2 dollar price tag, I was sold.


LA spotted it first. so i have to give her all the credit here.  Girls got a good eye. plus she freaks at anything pink and sparkly.


So yeah, we have 1 tree up in the house already.
