project 365 - day 185

I cleaned out my purse, which was long overdue, and downsized to my Skirt Purse from Thirty-One - with a new flowery skirt on it. So cute!!

project 365 - day 184

Nicole was trying to block me taking her picture, but I thought the effect of her hand turned out cool, so I'm using it.

project 365 - day 183

This is another favorite from Thirty-One. We use this literally every single weekend, to bring stuff to the pool with us. Such a fun print!

project 365 - day 182

This is a shelf of Once Upon a Family stuff. With them going out of business, I kind of feel like I'm almost freed from having to have EVERYTHING out and can just have out what I want. I also don't have to make sure that everything is super portable, to take to home parties, booths, etc. so I packed up the baskets I used to have so that I could grab it and go. Love it much better this way!

project 365 - day 181

This is one of Rico's favorite spots in the house. Quite possibly because it's pretty much the only furniture he's allowed to be on.

My new favorite toy, the flatiron. How in the world did I ever live without this thing?

project 365 - day 179

This is what happens when trash and recycling aren't put out for over a week. UGH. It'll be so nice to get this outta here.

project 365 - day 178

This is one of my Tupperware drawers. I swear I think I own more TW than anyone else who doesn't actually sell it. I love this stuff. Right now my favorite things are the cereal bowls. Super cute, and such fun colors. Most of this I haven't actually bought, but won in some of the raffles on the yahoo groups I'm in. Gotta love free stuff!!

project 365 - day 177

This is Nicole's new White Polar Bear Cub from WowWee Alive. She had the Panda Bear, which she got from Santa, but Rico ate the face, so I let her pick out a new one, with strict instructions that whenever she's not actually holding it she needs to keep it in her room so it doesn't suffer the same fate as the Panda. Pretty cute, actually. They make little animal noises and move their eyes and their heads. The wonder of robotics.

project 365 - day 176

Still no appearance on those top two teeth Nicole lost. Her coaches at Protential keep asking her when she's going to grow some new teeth. lol

project 365 - day 174

I wanted to take a pic of Nicole because I think her hair just looks too cute with the headband. Unfortunately the only pic I could get of her was one where she's crying. Seriously, SUCH a drama queen. lol

project 365 - day 173

We got notice today that Once Upon a Family is shutting down it's consultant business. Goodbye Once Upon a Family. I am thankful for the things I've learned from this company, the friendships I've made because of it, and how the products have changed and will continue to change the life of my family. I will be buying up everything else I want to have for my kids from them before they go away.

project 365 - day 172

Nicole lost both her top front teeth within a couple days of each other. First one from a handstand turned faceplant. Luckly it was already loose, but it was still traumatic for her. The other one mostly fell out on it's own. Mostly.

project 365 - day 171

This is Squakers the Parrot. Nicole HAD to have this for Christmas and I was completely resistant. She actually wanted it last year. But as it turns out, this is a kick-ass toy. I really like it. Whenever I go in to say goodnight to Cole and tuck her in, the bird says goodnight to me, too. lol.

project 365 - day 170

Luckily Nicole is a pretty heavy sleeper, so I was able to get this shot of her without waking her up!

project 365 - day 169

Another cute shot of Owen and his buddy Rico. They are so funny, because Owen loves him so much, but then Rico will do something like step on his foot and Owen will get so mad, and tell me that Rico did it on purpose. lol

project 365 - day 168

Owen has been building this roller coaster thing for awhile. I am sure it'll be cool when it's done. Right now it's kind of abstract art.

project 365 - day 167

It's that time of year again, when I branch out from my typical toes of multicolors and flowers, and go with a 4th of July theme. Long live the red, white and blue.

project 365 - day 166

Another adorable purse from Thirty-One. I really really love this one. They have it in a couple colors but this is the only one I have so far. I haven't actually used it yet, because I'm a little worried I couldn't fit all my crap in it, but it might be a good casino or night out purse, when I don't need so much stuff with me.

project 365 - day 165

This is the only way I make it through the day sometimes. I often have a hard time falling asleep, or I'm in the middle of something and stay up late, so by the afternoon I often need an energy drink to keep me going. I'm glad I found Efusjon, since at least I'm now drinking something healthy instead of something chemical.

project 365 - day 164

World's softest bath wrap. Seriously. This was part of an Add-on kit I got from Thirty-One and it's insanely soft. Much like their bathrobe and slippers that I've never gotten for myself.

project 365 - day 163

Nicole, in the dentist chair. Both kids had to get some sealant put on their molars to protect them. You would think that would be easy enough, but both of them screamed and cried like they were being killed. I told the dentist that would be the last time she ever saw me, because this would now be Perry's job to take them there.

Nicole in the driveway. We were having a water balloon fight, and I took a time out to snap a pic.

project 365 - day 161

This is the infamouse Palm Pre. I got up early to wait in line for this. Thankfully I got there early enough that I was able to get one. I would have been extremely pissed had they been sold out already! I've been waiting for this phone since I heard about it January so I'm very excited it's finally here! At last I can do email and web easily on the go!!

project 365 - day 160

Perry makes fun of me when I work from home, because I set up my little command center on the kitchen table.

project 365 - day 159

Another of our fun pasttimes, the dart board. Fun, but as is the case with many of the electronic ones, it's just not as accurate as the real steel tip darts. But for obvious reasons I didn't think it would be wise to have the kids throwing steel tips in the loft.

project 365 - day 158

I LOVE the colors in my pool bath. We actually redid this room awhile ago, when Rico ate everything else that was in the room (shocker) but I like it so much better now! The old theme was fishies, and I think this is way cuter.

project 365 - day 156

Finally it's time to release the butterflies! Nicole was really excited to do it, esp. when we read that they will tend to stick around the area where they are released for a few days. I am sure she'll be looking for them.
