Do you think ________, makes my ______, look _______?

I love when people say things like this!  I find myself doing it all the time!  
Do you think this bow makes my head look too small?  
Personally, I have to tell you that I think it is super fabulous.
It's not for the stylishly timid,
but I would rock it just for the nay sayers.

This look will undoubtedly stir up the conversation in any stagnant room!
I am obsessed with all of

 My Rule:  If it is a bit too much, I throw one more thing on!

I this skirt too bright?

Do these lashes look too long?  
I think that is kind of like asking "is this diamond too big"?
Dumb question.

Too much or never enough?  My pick is never enough. Life is to short.
I wear my stuff and my style like it's my life.  
I have fun with it, follow no rules, (except the white before easter, I'm a southerner).  
Besides that, it's open game.  Have fun and for god sakes, live a  little.

Best costumes EVER!

Halloween is definitely my favorite time of the year!  
My first love was character make up for movies,  
so this is a fun time of year with my kids!  
I keep it simple with the little ones though.  
Piper, Zander, and Sutton's costume will have to be a surprise!
If I had my vote they would be rocking one of these lil' ensembles!  
I love a nugget fashionista!

What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas!

Every two years, my husband's company is invited to a summit in Vegas.  This is a motivational time for all of the business owners and staff to get together from across the country and get motivated and educated on the new products.  Van Products, Inc. brings freedom and mobility to physically challenged residents of North Carolina. Their two locations in Raleigh and Wilmington, North Carolina offer personal and commercial wheelchair-accessible vehicles, lifts, ramps, hand controls and many other products that make the world more accessible. Not only is this an amazing business to be in, it is also very touching.  Every person in a chair has a story.  I have been very blessed to know a few of them that are leaders for their cause which is not to let their struggles get them down.  They keep their heads up and keep on moving.  There are limitations for each individual but they continue to strive for new technology and accessibility to keep them mobil.  It was a great week with Braun Ability, and I am very excited to have been a part of it!

To die for!

Love these pics, they remind me of Kristen Martinez work!  She is my fav artist of the hour!  The dress, is amazing!  I love that Valentino did a baby pink for fall.  I mean who does that?  
Valentino does, and I'm good with that! 

This was so neat, it was in the hotel!  

I can be a little touristy.  No fanny pack, just cheesy pics!

Just wishing' this was my courtyard!

Francisca looking at the parasols!  We were both excited when we figure out they moved!

I love getting my ID. checked!  

This a pretty bad quality picture, but I couldn't not put it on here!  
We had such a great time, with great friends.

Posh Tot Party Pics

O.K. I know, it's been a while.  

I'm sorry.  Really, I am.  Sometimes life just gets the best of us and days turn into weeks, and weeks turn into months.  But I'm back, (to let you know, I can really break it down....). Alright, alright.  I'm focusing, promise.  These are the long awaited photos of the b-day parties! 

Zander was born exactly 6 years ago on August 25, 2006.  That day when my little boy was handed to me, I knew I was in love.  We celebrated that special day with a bang.  Pirates were his theme, and he generously shared his special day with his lil sis, Piper.  (I doubt I'll be able to get away with that for too much longer).  Piper turned three on August 28. 
I always knew my favorite color was pink, but on this day it was justified.  She was so beautiful.  
We celebrated her birthday with a mermaid theme.

The food was so much fun to put together.  We celebrated their parties at Landfall Country Club.  I came up with the ideas and Mrs. Judy ( a god-send) made it happen.  I perused several blogs and stayed up late night Pinterest stalking party planners.  The kids loved it!  

The ocean water was just the reg with blue food coloring.  The candy bags consisted of rock candy, gummy worms(fish bait), and salt water taffy.  We did a watermelon fruit basket (bucket and shovel), pirates booty (nom, nom), gold fish (catch of the day), and jello with oranges (pirate ships in the ocean).  All of this was a hit!

Zander wanted a pirate theme, so we pulled out all of the stops.  He had so much fun!  
The gift bags were fun to make!  My blush girls helped a ton!

Piper felt like a princess in her mermaid tail. It was wearable and oh-so-cute!  I loved the jelly fish umbrella, nice touch, Mrs. Judy.  She also made the necklaces with pearls in them!  
The little girls fell in love!

Better late than never!  The balloons made a grand enhance just as the party was getting started!  
Our friend Josh Lee came dressed as a pirate!  The girls were swooning.

The party was a blast.  The kids had fun, and the adults got to watch without lifting a finger.  
That is a success in itself.  This was the first year that I was able to enjoy myself.  
Hire it done, people.  
Trust me!  

Sutton Grier is next!  She will be two in November! 
Everyone loves a party, what are some of the themes you've used?
Do you have any original ideas?

Finishing Touches

This weekend is my little boy, Zander, and my little girl, Piper's, birthday.  We are having a big ol' ridiculous over the top party(yes, I'm that girl), and I am beside myself.  I live for this stuff. Tomorrow will be the finishing touches, I'll keep you posted with pics, but until then, know that the "everything"is complete.  Sleep tight, lovelies.

Twinkle Toes and Fancy Fingers

One of my favorite things to do on Sundays is to go to the nail salon by our house with my little girl.  During these trips I usually just get a polish change so we can get finished at the  same time. 
 My middle girl, Piper, is so funny when she picks out her color.  
She is very confident with everything that she does. 
 I love this about her and I hope it takes her through the rest of her life,
 nail polish choice and all.

I think we all have dreams for our little ones, this is one of mine........

Here are some of my favorite nail trends this season.

I love the tangerine color!
One of my favorite things about O.P.I. nail polish is the names they come up with!
I love the yellow with the mint green.
I think it shows a little bit of rebellion and I just think that's hot.
It reminds my of the scene in Sex in the City when the
muslim women have on their garb and under it are sequined dresses and lacy lingerie!
 You go girl.  The french manicure now is kind of faux pas,
not because I don't like the look of it, because the masses ruined the original look of it.  I go with the american manicure these days.  It's a softer version of the french and goes with everything.

Why is it so hard to choose a color!?!  It is such a big deal because now, with shellac, it is a serious commitment.  I love the shellac and usually opt for a natural pink or an american on my fingers.  On my toes I have a little more of a choice to play with pops of color.  Every once in a while I'll get a wild steak and do something daring.  What is your favorite nail trend?
