I {Heart} Friday!

Pottery Barn Kids released a cute {free} Kids Costume Finder app this season. It allows you to see what your children look like in the 30+ costumes they offer (and of course buy them directly from the app). We’ve been having fun playing with it…here are my sweet Cookie & Milk:

(These aren’t their actual costumes….he’s a Mummy (fingers crossed I can pull his costume off!), and she’s a Princess/Fairy/Butterfly Something.)

And since I’m apparently a 12-year-old boy…I have to take things to the next level and use the app for my own entertainment.

Little Punkin’ Beiber:

Always in the Doghouse Gosselin:

And let’s not leave out his Misses, Kate:

(not even a witches hat can contain the reverse mullet)

And because she’s Bat-Shizz Crazy:

And of course, the yummy cupcake:

Mr. Sugarplum and I are playing hookie from work today, dropping the kids at school and having a day of bliss together! The fast-paced-holidays will be upon us soon, and we like to take some time out just for us. We’re hitting the Katy Trail for a long bike ride, and stopping along the way for lunch on the patio of Toulouse.* {Sigh}

Enjoy the weekend with your Sugarplums…and Happy {Safe} Halloween!
*Is it so wrong that part of me wishes I could spend my day off painting Babygirl’s room?!

  5. Hilarious! I am sooooo envious of you and your hubbs day today. So funny because I jokingly asked mine to take the day off so we could play and he almost spit out his coffee {apparently he actually has a busy day ahead . . whatever!!}

I {Heart} Friday!

Woot Woot – It’s Friday!!! Good grief, I thought you’d never get here!
We have a busy weekend of soccer games and piano festivals, but I hope to squeeze in a few more self-centered things.

Like milking the final days of summer in our backyard:

(Why, yes, my backyard is this lush after a Texas August! And my table is always set for a party! Don’t hate.) not really

Like making progress on transforming this Nursery into a Big Girl Room:
(full nursery post coming up)

And most importantly…celebrating the birth of Mr. Sugarplum!! His favorite is Boston Cream Pie, so I’m hoping to make some semblance of this dessert:

Happy, Happy Birthday Babe!! I’m so glad your parents got busy (eeeeeeeeeewwwwww) all those years ago! You are the heart and laughter of our lives. {kiss}
What are you guys up to? Enjoy your last September weekend!

  1. You seriously crack me up! I'm so happy for Friday too, but when I told my husband that, he's like "why, what's different about Friday from any other day for you??" Ha! I guess he's kinda right!

Woot! Woot!! It’s Friday! It’s also the last weekend before my sweet boy flies off to Michigan to stay with his grandparents for 17 days!!! He goes every summer, and while Mr. Sugarplum and I love the time alone with our babygirl, our family isn’t complete with him gone. (But man, is it cake with only one kid!!!)

So this weekend will be a lot of this:

And maybe a little of this:
Definitely this:
And it wouldn’t be the weekend in my house without this:
Because I’m taking advantage of the big guy’s time away to give him a surprise room makeover! He has an idea it’s going to happen, as I wanted him to have some input on the room I hope to never makeover again until he moves out.
Here’s an inspiration pic for what I’m planning:
Happy Friday sweet readers — and have a marvelous weekend!
