7 Signs a Playdate Should End

1. You just saw the diamond necklace your husband gave you for your anniversary pass by on a child who isn't even yours.

2. You've convinced yourself it's not such a bad day to send the kids outside. After all, it isn't raining sideways or anything.

3. The pint-size opposing army is still on the attack, but you've run out of fort.
4. Your kid's friend has been over so long, you just scheduled her well visit at the pediatrician's office for Tuesday.

5. You and the dog are hiding in the basement.

6. One kid keeps asking for his goody bag.

7. Every time the doorbell on the dollhouse rings, you jump up to answer the front door, shouting, "Your mom's here!"

Playdates....Are We Having Fun Yet?!

Your kid, a few of his friends, a bunch of toys... what could go wrong?

What's going on when...

The duct tape and rope are missing: The kids are attempting to affix either the wagon to a bicycle or a little brother to the couch.
You just heard a big THUD upstairs...and another one: Somebody's cape (aka your bath towel) didn't get enough air after the first leap off the bed.

...and now there's just silence: Don't ask.

Elmo's in the basement, singing to himself: Nobody could find the OFF button on the Sesame Street toy, so they left for another (quieter) floor in the house.

Something just crunched under your foot: The chips you bought for Moms' Movie Night are gone.

Your heirloom china platter has disappeared from the display case: Polly Pocket's got a brand-new flying saucer!

There's a snipping sound: Somebody's bangs are going to have more ups and downs than the S&P 500.

That doll has unusually long eyelashes: Have you seen your mascara lately?

Your bedsheets seem to be giggling: Don't get changed out of your clothes just yet.

Everyone's near tears: The playdate has ended -- and someone else's mom is going to host it next time.

Another Free Digi Frame

Here is another free frame to use as an overlay for your photos!

Spa Goddess Body Scrubs

I recently purchased a sweet smelling body scrub from a wonderful lady named Jessica who owns an etsy shop called Spa Goddess.
I purchased "Fair Maiden" and I love it!

Inspired by an Ayurvedic tradition of pampering brides with exfoliating botanicals & fragrant oils in the days before marriage.

Packed with sweetly-softening, lovingly-replenishing Rose petals, anti-oxidant rich Rosehips & skin-brightening Citrus.
Fair Maiden is generously scented with the luscious aphrodisiac oils of Exotic Florals, Citrus & Spice.

This sweet-smelling, ultra-moisturizing, decadently nourishing exfoliating body scrub will leave your skin loveably supple & oh so kissably soft!!

My skin has never felt so smooth and smelled so amazing! :)

To visit her shop visit:

She also has a website:

My First Attempt!

I was messing around yesterday with the braiding but today I finally think I got the hang of it.

Practice makes perfect.

Also I added some korker bows to the bottoms, instead of having the ends hang down I tucked them under and secured them with a rubberband and added the korker bows.

How To French Braid Hair

I decided it was time I learned how to french braid my daughters hair, I always put her hair in pigtails or pony tails and I was getting bored with that.

So where do you go when you want a free video tutorial?

Youtube of course!

This was the BEST video out there and it was extremely easy to follow.

I recommend this to anyone who wants to learn how to french braid!

Huge Selection of Pre-Made Bottle Caps

O.k. I am always on the look out for hair bow centers and I stumbled across this site.
I couldn't believe it. I never saw so many pre-made bottle caps in my life!
They have everything you can think of and their prices are amazing!
