I'm really diggin' the whole Polyvore thing....I've always been into design. Graphic design, interior design, landscape design, anything where I get to design SOMETHING! I wish there were a site where I could design a floor plan of some crazy sweet humble abode to share with all of you. :P

Anyhow...what are some of your favorite must haves that are trending right now?


Also...it is only 17 days away from my oldest wee little Princess' birthday. EEKS! I guess I should start planning something. Is it wrong of me that I really don't feel like doing some big "thing" for her birthday? My nephew is having his birthday party at Chuckie Cheese on the 15th....is it tacky to also have hers there, too......12 days later? haha! Mr. B & I would rather just take her to have cake & ice cream (which, BTW my kid does NOT like cake) with CLOSE family over at her Nana's house. Being a new[er] mom is quite adventurous...and I'll say this: Birthday celebrations are always something that seem so stressful and tricky for Mr. B. & I. Any ideas, thoughts, or suggestions on what we should do for our soon to be 3 year old's birthday celebration would be greatly appreciated! :) Tell me what you think!

Among other things, we are really excited about what we have chosen to get her for her big birthday gift. We thought long and hard & everything we thought was perfect, we later decided wouldn't work out because Sissy would need one too & well...it's not Sissy's birthday :P
So! I was so elated to have finally figured it out! Something "For the birthday girl" but also something that she would love to include her Sissy to play with: A WATER TABLE!!! It's the perfect gift idea!!! Now, all I'm stuck with is WHICH ONE?!?!

Or, this one:

What do you think? I think Mr. B. & I will get as much enjoyment out of this just by watching them as they will actually playing on it!

We are so excited for her...She's so special! 

Thoughts and toots,

{and to my visitor from Port Charlotte, *wink*}

OK! Number one I love the summer trends choices you made, I grew up in the 70's so this fringe purse and loose shirt is just something I could totally wear:) Also where were these cool "water tables" when I was raising my kids, love them!
