Are you trippin'?

Have you ever looked at a pair of shoes and thought "Are you trippin' I would straight up fall on my rear!"  I was perusing the Piperlime website (because I have a 20% off coupon that MUST be used!) trying to find something to buy when I found these guys.  I thought those are cute, but peeps 'I am not light on my toes' and there is only one way those shoes and I would go and that's... down!
because 4 inch heels are a bad idea!
I am thinking of some cute flats instead!

Looking for a chicken leg/wing set for Easter?

I found this website called regretsy it's a blog chronicling the best of Etsy's worst. And folks, I think you should be aware of it too.  You will laugh and cry and certainly not BUY!!

I can't decide what to get!  

What is this Tom foolery???

Seriously, I cannot stop laughing... is this for real?  If so I may need a Tiddy bear (even writing the name makes me chuckle!)

His head fits comfortably right in the middle of your chest!


Air freshener for $85.00?

This morning I walked upstairs and hit a 'cloud' of parfum.  Dorothy thought it was stinky upstairs (because Violet has pooped earlier) and decided to eradicate the smell with a good 1/3 of her Mom's $85 parfum bottle.  Can you say "Viva la spank your bum?"

Bobbi Brown you stole my heart!

Because it's all about sharing the love on this blog, here is one of mine!  I used to love Clinique, then onto MAC, Lancome, and so on!  Well my latest obsession in makeup is Bobbi Brown.  I love every single item of hers I have purchased!  I purchased the shimmer brick as seen below almost 2 years ago and this very morning as I was scraping out the last of it I thought "I better head to Nordy's this week to pick up a new one!"  These are the best!  You can wear one color or all!  All the colors look great together and most importantly, it lasts FOREVER (almost)!

Dear Easter Bunny,

Just sayin' these would be great in my basket!

Spring on my mind!

It's beautiful and sunny out today... my spring bulbs are just starting to blossom, and  I can't help but think about transitioning my wardrobe from winter to spring.  Here are a few of the items I intend to buy and wear this spring!

Necklaces by Anthropologie at ShopStyle

This little guy has been hanging out in my shopping cart for 3 weeks!

Button Front Tops by Anthropologie at ShopStyle

This sweet little top!

Pants & Shorts by Oxford at ShopStyle

These look light and comfy!

Boots by Christian Louboutin at ShopStyle

I am in love with the "caged booties" look this season and if $ were not object, I would be sporting these guys around!

Flats by Anthropologie at ShopStyle

More likely these little guys will be on my feet!

Totes by Anthropologie at ShopStyle

And finally this little number to finish it off!

OOTD- cuts ribbon!

Today was a 'big' day for our little family.  My husband (the newest member of the Salem chamber of commerce) had a ribbon cutting ceremony for his new office.  I had a hard time trying to decide what to wear and finally settled on this as my outfit of the day (OOTD)!

Cardigan: Anthro Edana cardigan (sold out online some still in stores) similar here and here
Tank: Anthro buds and bunches tee
Belt: Tahari similar here
Bag: my new lovely and amazing... Rebecca Minkoff

I love this cardigan especially because of the cute back!

And of course my lovely shoes... you can find here

Shiny vs Matte?

No I am not talking about LCD's or photo's...
I'm talking about lips!

Bare minerals Buxom is hands down the BEST lip gloss EVER!!! I love this lip plumping gloss! Unlike other lip plumper's it does not burn, it gives you a minty sensation like you are chewing a fresh piece of gum. I have been debating over whether or not I should purchase another lip gloss (to add to the ever growing collection) or if I should follow the new 'trend' of matte lips. I saw after fashion week they kept saying "matte is the new glossy" problem is sometimes those trends don't transpose well into the general population. But, I also don't want to be walking around with people thinking "her lips are sooooo 2009:)!" So now I am stuck... glossy or matte?

Decisions, decisions!!

Love at first sight!

My bag arrived today and it was love at first sight!  It is beautiful and perfect for carrying all of my stuff from diapers to makeup.  I'm unloading all of my stuff from my Coach bag right now!  Funny story: I told my sister Jessica last week how I ordered this bag and she said "I have been looking at getting that bag for a while now!"  She alredy owns twenty 'quite a few' designer handbags and was thinking of this one next!  I think this is calling your name "buuuuy me Jessica!"

This totally makes me laugh!  These two always are toting around purses and have to bring them whenever we leave the house! (The apple never falls too far from the tree!)

I love spring!

I love spring and when I saw this little number it reminded me of it!  So while shopping at Target yesterday (I was already there getting birthday presents for my son)  I caved in and got it!  I wore it today and felt girly and fresh!  That's all I got for myself anyway... we won't go into details about what I got for the girls because you would be disappointed in me!

Hair scare!

This morning while I was tweezing out 20 or so WHITE HAIRS out of my scalp I asked my hair "hair you know I am only 32 right?  I am not ready to be considered a blue hair yet!" My hair lovingly replied "Honey, you have had grey hair since you were 24 get over it already!"  Now I ask myself, do many women my age have patches and patches of white hair?  If you ask a Mickelsen, then yes.  We all grey early (my Dad went grey in his mid 20's) I have been dying my hair for years trying to mask the apparent signs of aging.  But what used to be a few hairs here and there is now... well depressing!  I think I will blame it on the kids as my Dad did!

This was the best recent shot of my hair taken about 2 weeks ago.  If you click on it and blow it up you can see in the light some little white guys lurking around!

ps- It's taking everything in me not to go to Target right now and pick up a few cute floral tank tops, sundresses (for the girls), plates, wallets, and even a BIKE! All from the Liberty of London line they are carrying. That blasted shopping ban I put myself on!

I have a thing for cute vintage inspired prints!

I have been stalking this shirt for a few months, even last week while in Anthro at SLC I brought it up to the cash register... I did get a short cast of buyers remorse and put it back! Now imagine my surprise this morning when it went half off, can I get a little woot woot! Even though I had banned myself from shopping (after my Rebecca Minkoff bag order, more on that later) I couldn't refuse! Just be glad I am not feeding into all the Target Liberty of London madness (that could be lethal!)  If you love it as much as I do run don't walk to Anthropologie and search for Country Manor top!

They are in the mail!

Thanks to Maria at infinite whimsy I ordered these shoes!  Seriously I can't wait for them to arrive!!!

Linea Paolo your shoes did me wrong!

The other day while walking out the door for Church... I biffed it, we will blame it on the real culprits feature above! It hurt like crazy and I bruised my ankle (don't ask!) And then yesterday while running on my treadmill my knee started hurting. I kind of started freaking out because, after running for over a year I can finally actually run for a while (I won't tell you how long because this is NOT A COMPETITION PEOPLE!) Anyways I have worked so hard to finally get where I am at and I jack my knee? Well the good news is I actually just bruised it, that and my ego when I fell. I am feeling much better this morning and have want to run... because last night during the Bachelor I ate half a batch of no-bake cookies oops!


What is this Tom foolery?

I can't believe they actually make these!! I thought the original snuggie was nonsense and now this! What's next one for your parrot?

They are here folks and they are good! I used to hate these little guys and wonder why someone would eat them. Then one day I put them in the microwave and watched them 'magically' grow to twice their size and BAM!! They taste like magic! I can't really explain it... just try it!

Because new shoes always brighten my day!!!

What a great way to welcome spring (or at least try and usher it in a little faster?!)  I saw these and just knew they would become fast friends with my feet!  What can I say I love you Tory Burch!!

Best foundation EVER!

I am one of those unfortunate souls that gets the dreaded 'pregnancy mask' it's horrible and embarrassing!! Two years ago my mask was in full effect and I was trying EVERYTHING I could to hide it!! I went on a mission to find the best foundation and here it is folks! It has great coverage never streaks or gives you the dreaded 'line'. It's easy to apply and good for your skin!!
