Sunday Morning

It's Sunday morning, everyone else in my house is asleep, and I wish I was. Kira was waking up super early all week so now I'm on an early schedule too. It is nice to have a totally silent house and no one asking me to feed them, play something, clean something, find something...the people
I live with are so demanding! Ha!

My dad gave me Season 4 of Mad Men last week so now I am all caught up and ready for Season 5 on March 25! I can't imagine what will happen but I think it's going to be really good. Actors from the show have said S5 is better than the first season! That is some real big talk to my ears because the first season was amazing. The first episode is amazing. I feel like that episode is a mini-movie in itself. The only thing I hope happens next season is something bad happens to Betty or she at least turns into a human being. She is just so mean and hateful to her core. I do like that her new husband calls her on her shit.

Riley's school had snow day this week. I thought they'd have their whole playground covered in snow (that's how they made it sound when they announced it) but it was just a little patch on the side of one of the classrooms. It was enough for 10 munchkins to play in and have fun with though! Riley wanted to wear 2 scarves, gloves, a hat and his jacket. He ended up just wearing a hat and the gloves occasionally. I'm glad he got to play in snow AZ style this winter.

Christmas Fun!

I've been having fun visiting other blogs looking at Christmas decor, so I figured I might as well do a little post on our decorations too.

Our main tree has been jewel tones for a few years. The tree itself is a hand me down from my mom. Growing up we always had a real tree but once all the kids moved out of the house she got this fake one. I like the real tree smell, but I am a total fake tree girl now. I like being able to bend & twist the branches to fit the ornaments I want to hang.

Something I want to try next year is adding ribbon & garland to our tree. My mom never used it so I never thought to use it on my own tree. After seeing so many pretty beribboned trees the past couple years I really want to do it myself!

This is Kira's pink tree. I got it last year for $5, how could I pass up a deal like that!? It has turquoise bulbs, cupcakes, candies and other girlie stuff . I stuck her fluffiest pink tutu under the turquoise sequin tree skirt...not my idea but I'm so glad I saw it!

Next is my bedroom tree. A couple years ago we were staying at my mom's house while she lived in a different house, and we ended up with an extra tree. So I took all the red & green ornaments off our main tree and put them on the 2nd tree. So ever since then we've had a jewel tone tree and a "traditional" green & red tree. This tree holds my special Mickey Mouse ornaments that I don't want to see smashed into a million pieces.

This post has taken me two days to complete so I'll just leave it off there. If I get a chance to blog our main tree I will...

it's "fall"

In Phoenix, there isn't much difference between fall, summer, spring and winter. It's usually very sunny and warm no matter what season we're in. In summer it's unGodly hot all day and all night. But in fall, winter & spring, it's actually quite gorgeous all day & all night. Things I miss about a real fall are apple orchards, wearing warm layers & boots, leaves changing colors...that type of thing. It's not like we don't have those things here, you just have to drive up North to see it.

One thing I am super excited about is Halloween is coming, and yes we're havin' a party!!! I loved the Mad Tea Party in June and Vanessa hosts a Halloween shindig too, so we'll be participating in that.

Mr. Riley Scott started Pre School a few weeks ago, and he loves it.

This is his little friend Lara, they seem to end up next to each other more often than not. She is ADORABLE so I don't mind one bit!

just some babblin'

I am such a fan of all those "Outfit of the Day" blogs. (These are two of my favorites) It boggles my mind that someone can get someone else to take pictures of them every single day. I am jealous of people that get to put together cute little outfits every day. I am stuck in total MOM MODE 24/7. Jeans or capris, some sort of t-shirt and flip flops. Ok I do have a collection of cute little dresses but that requires leg shaving...some days I don't even GET a shower let alone a shower where I can shave both legs!

I'm not mad or anything, I know this time of my life is devoted to chubby little faces and butts and they don't care what I'm wearing. Riley tells me I'm "bee-uti-ful" all the time and that's great for me.

I do miss the days of shopping for an outfit, then shopping for shoes to wear with it, then maybe getting a purse and accessories....but I wouldn't trade my babies for shopping any day!

Pinnable Me Friday

Since I'm totally in love with Pinterest I am participating in the Pinnable Me thing over at Stefanie's blog.

I have 45 boards with 987 pins, does that qualify as an addiction? ;) Most of my boards have to do with Party Planning so I'm sharing images from a party I would LOVE to throw for one of my girlfriends, a Glam Tinkerbell Party! Wouldn't that be so girly and fun?
