Champagne Taste ...

Nordstrom is kickin' off their Half Yearly Sale today, so I am heading over to take a peek. I have a gift card burning a hole in my pocket and an itchin' to shop! Hubby's birthday is in a couple weeks, so I will be gift shopping for him. I browsed the sale online this morning and found a couple things I like ...

Alo Layered Top ... $19.90

Alternative Top ... $19.90

My sis-in-law just got this top in a gorgeous orange color and I told myself if I found it in this color, I would snag one for myself.

Juicy Couture Shorts ... $21.90

Christian Louboutin Mary Janes ... $835

Ha! My hubby loves me, but would file for divorce if I came home with these lovelies. A girl can dream though!

Anyone else hittin' the sale? What's on your wish list?

Summer Swap, Anyone?

We took the boys to see Shrek Forever After this weekend (cute movie!!), and my hubby and I are still laughing at one particular line that Donkey says ... "You know what you need around here? Flip Flop Friday! Feel the breeze go right over your toes!"
Aaah ... summertime! I am trying to wait patiently for the sun to come out and stay a while, but all this rain and coldness is bumming me out!
Donkey's idea (and the way he says it) is sure putting a smile on my face and has inspired me to try out my very first swap!! A little something to help these wet days pass by quickly and get y'all excited for the sunshine! I was thinking a flip flop swap would be fun, then I thought summer accessories would be great, too! Then I remembered the awesome summer swap I participated in last year and got all kinds of fun goodies to last me throughout the summer.
So now I need ideas - would anyone be interested in participating in a swap here on I was thinking a $25 limit so it doesn't break the bank. What should the theme be? I will leave this up for comments for a day or two, let me know what you think!

A Little Game of Tag ...

Two of my favorite bloggers, Mrs. MFC and PeaceLoveApplesauce tagged me in a little photo game ....

Here are the rules:
1]. Go to your photos files and select the 8th photo folder.
2]. Select the 8th photo in that folder.
3]. Post that photo along with the story behind it.
4]. Then challenge 8 blogging friends to do the same.

This pic is of the Baker Boys ... having a little fun at Target. The first two are my boys, and the little one in red is my nephew (he belongs here). This was taken last summer sometime. We are a very close family and these boys are the best of friends.
Oh the trouble that lies ahead ...

Tag! You're It!!

Highs and Lows ... it's Hump Day!

Sunshine on a rainy day ... sometimes Oregon's spring season isn't so bad.

I slept awful last night. And woke up way too early. It is going to be a long day.

My doc gave me some medication for my ongoing stomach issues ... yay!!

My Siberian Husky has severe allergies. This time of year sucks for her. And there is snot all over the house.

How can I behave myself and not shop when Express keeps sending me offers?

Ghost Whisperer has been cancelled. Sniff. I really heart this show.

Music Mondays

Miss Selena Gomez ... can't help but love this song by the Disney wizard. She is way cute, and hopefully she won't end up like another Disney gal who was spotted on TMZ grinding on a 44-year-old. Sigh.

Temps are in the 70's for the next few days, so I am a happy girl!
My week has been crazy busy so far and I keep trying to remind myself to ...
