Oh yay Friday. One of the reasons why I love you so much is because I don’t have to wake up early tomorrow to get kids off to school.  And what would be even better is if this weather would stop raining so much.  I actually planted some flowers today and it was weird that I had to bundle up before going out. But oh how nice of the sun to decide to come out AFTER I planted my flowers. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

And now that it’s Friday, it’s confession time!!!!!!

♥   I secretly wish I could be a professional chef.

♥   I have been told that I watch The Food Network  the way a man watches porn.

♥   I could seriously watch Food Network all day and not get bored.

♥   I think it started when watching Julia Child when I was a child.

♥   I wish I lived in England.

♥   I have had a fascination with England since I was little.

♥   This is so girly, but I so want an English Cottage with English garden.

♥   One of my favorite shows of all time is “Keeping up appearances”.

♥   I told my SIL if something was to ever happen with our hubby’s, we should move to England and live in a Victorian house and make a giant garden.

♥   My husband thinks I’m crazy.

♥   I’m excited that I finally have my own yard to start building my dream flower garden.

♥   Um……….it’s still pretty naked.

♥   Don’t judge.

♥   I’ve been having incredibly high anxiety lately so I’ve been leaning towards flowers to try and calm me.

♥   I feel that I’m becoming more socially awkward and I don’t know what has changed to make me be more anti-social…………….

♥   I am going to go online after this post and buy more flowers……

Anyway now after all this English talk, I’m thinking certain shows on Netflix are calling my name to watch. I’m the only one in my house that watches them, but I can’t help it. I love it and have watched British comedies my entire life. (And I’m obsessed with Monty Python….ooooooh ya….)

Anyway I hope you have a great weekend. I know I will. I have more planting to do. 🙂


Good night 🙂

Oh what an adventure this week has been for sure! And now it is yet again Friday and time for some confessions!

I confess:

♥   I went to the last Disney store we have in the state with my SIL today.

♥   It was the best.

♥   It got me more excited for Disneyland and December feels like years away!

♥   Now Disneyland is all my daughter talks about.

♥   Oh and a puppy.

♥   I’m still waiting to find out WHEN I can have surgery and it’s extremely frustrating. 

♥   I takes a toll on a person when you are extremely limited to what you can and can’t do.

♥   Seriously, this princess party we are having makes everything better.

♥   I fell in love with the Princess dresses they had at the store and secretly wish that I could still wear them. 🙂

♥   I planted flowers today and it was WONDERFUL!

♥   I got a little sunburned because I’m incredibly pasty.

♥   I’m not going to lie….it felt great. 🙂

♥   I would like to look a little healthy instead of always sick. ha ha

♥   I haven’t had ice cream in quite a while and I feel like it’s damaging my soul. 

♥   I wish that I had my own personal chef to make me food.

♥   Who doesn’t?

Anyway enough with the rambling. I hope that you have a great weekend. I’m looking forward to more gardening and possibly a date to see Thor. 😉

♥ xoxo ♥

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…………………………………………………

I know it’s been awhile.

Naughty naughty me.

I have a lot of making up to do which I PLAN on doing now that I have more free time. Soooooo I hope you are prepared. 🙂

So let’s just say last week mysteriously never happened. Ok???? ok……… 🙂

So my Sil and I have been talking about having a princess party this year. Like full blown Disney princess party. We both want to be Disney Princess’s and figured since neither of us are moving to California, that we should just have one here. 🙂 My daughter’s birthday is in October so we are having the princess party then. 🙂

In honor of the Disney Princesses, here are some things I found…… (be prepared….I’m doing all 10)

Snow white inspired dress……     (source)

These Cinderella shoes are perfect!  (source)

“Make it blue………make it pink!” Well, now you can have both!    (source)

I am loving this silhouette idea!!  (source)

Um, holy cow! This listing is actually for the little girls dress, but STILL! I’m planning on being belle for the Princess Party so I really need to find a dress for ME like this!!  (source)

I am loving these Jasmine earrings! (source)

This is a really creative Pocahontas hair clip! (source)

A cute take on Mulan! 🙂  (source)

I LOVE this Princess Tiana ADULT costume! It’s very well done!  (source)

Super cute Rapunzel invites! (source)

I am SO excited for our Princess party and can’t wait to share more peeks with what we are doing. We are going ALL out for this. I don’t think I will ever go as big for a princess party like we are for this. We want it as magical as possible and I think this will be as closest to Disneyland we can get in Utah. 🙂

Oh and 2 more things…………check out the Abbey Roo blog to enter in your ideas for a picture based on you! Please know that you do not need to be overly detailed or you can be as detailed as you want! But remember that you have until this Friday to get your entries in! 🙂

And last…..again as a reminder…..friends….if you are able to contribute at ALL to the lovely Kate to see her father please go here. He’s receiving a lifetime achievement award for his volunteer work advocating for children. The award is a surprise, and they’ve asked family and friends to be there to see him honored at this dinner.  I think this is WONDERFUL what he is doing and feel that this is something she should really go to. And as a friend, I want to help her out………..

Anyway, I hope you have a lovely night. I will be giving more updates on what is going on with my whole ankle situation at a later time.

Loves!

♥ xoxo ♥

I don’t talk about my dad much. It’s uncomfortable and it takes a lot for me to uncover that part of myself. I don’t think I’ve allowed anyone in my life to really know that side of me because it seems  too difficult to discuss.

Why am I bringing it up now?

Because I have this friend.  She is just……lovely….amazing……strong………..and I truly admire her.

Today she said that her dad is going to get this HUGE award and family are able to attend, but because of flight tickets, it’s hard to scramble money that fast.  But as a girl and having your father in your life, it just feels important to me to have my friend there. I will never be able to attend an award dinner for my father, or see him on another Father’s day, or have him come over and play with my children. I’ve missed out on SO much and it’s truly a sore spot on me. I just felt how important this is to her and I feel as her friends we can pull together to help her see her dad.

$500.

Yup. My goal. I figured if about 20 people donate…….oh about  give or take $20……it should help…..so….I’m trying. She’s been there for me. Always checking in on me to make sure I’m ok. I know she is going through so much more than I am, but it makes me SO grateful that she is being there for me. I want to do what I can in return.

I know you don’t know her. I highly recommend you read her blog. You will be able to feel her strength and how inspiring she really is. 

I don’t expect you to donate money especially for not knowing her. But all of my friends are so dear to me and I would do anything for them.

IF you feel in your heart that you would like to donate anything…even if it is simply $5……….I can’t even begin to tell you how AMAZING that would be. You can go here….

DONATE TO KATE

I want her to enjoy this time with her father.  I feel that this will help me get out of this depression slump I’ve been in for the last 3 months. It hasn’t been terrible, but….I still feel this will somehow help me feel better knowing she is able to cherish this time with the first real man in her life.
