*Love* my new sunglasses

So I've told you all before how much I love sunglasses. I am not so into purses and shoes like most girls, but I DO love my sunglasses.  Here's my favorite to new pair.  They are from the Paula Creamer line at Sundog Eyewear.  I think avaitar style glasses are so classic, and perfect in Florida. Whatcha think!?

(Sorry for the bad self photo, ha!)

My son is thrilled: Kidz Bop 21 is out!

My 4 year old son LOVES music. Over the summer, he was given an old computer for my cousin, and immedaitely loaded all his favorite music CDs.  (He's a total computer geek, and yes I did say FOUR years old).  His favorites are Disney Jams, Taylor Swift, Selina Gomez, and KidzBop.

For weeks, he has been saving his money for the new KidzBop 21, and on Tuesday (the day it was released) we went to Target to pick up this new CD.  (Side note: Target has four bonus tracks not shown below and is on sale this week for $9.99!).

Yay Target Dollar Bins: Valentines have Arrived!

I have never really decorated for Valentine's Day, not sure why to be honest, but this year decided to buy a couple of little items for our home.  And today, Target (yay Target!) put tons of cute Valentine items in their dollar bins and I couldn't help myself! 

Here's my mantel... 
(I plan to make a little banner soon, perhaps "Be Mine" to hang on the mantel. I am looking for a free printable but am having a little trouble. I may go back to Target for the foam hearts in the dollar bin and use those as a starting point).

Found this mini-heart wreat, $2.50 

Wooden blocks, $2.50

Same blocks, they spell different words! how cute!

The frame was not in the dollar bins, but by the picture frames. Tons of different ones for $4.99.  Now I need to find the perfect picture to put into the frame.

Small heart containers, $1 (perfect for lunchbox surprises!)

Cute Valentine Pails, $1 for each kid!
(Can you see the placemats? I found them at Ross this week, package of 4 for $4.99)
This is my smaller, breakfast table--I need to change to a white tablecloth, I know!

My kids love the "gel stickies" to stick in their windows, $1.

Happy Shopping!

New Years Day: Black and White Themed Brunch

By all means, I am not a Martha Stewart-type.  I would prefer to buy then to try to make, but when I decided to throw a New Year's Day brunch (for both adults and kids) hubby threw a budget on me! (BOO!)  I looked online (love me some Pinterest!) and found some really cute DIY decorations. 

I knew that I wanted a Black and White theme, and since my walls are painted a green color, I chose that as the accent color.

I made party poppers, filled with candy for the kids.

 My banner
(Printed the template from HERE and then put onto card stock)

The dessert table

 Chocolate covered marshmallows

Festive accents

I printed water label bottles in my theme-colors

I failed to get pictures of my main table where I served brunch (Traditional ham, mini-quiches, mac and cheese, and fruit kabobs).  Everyone had a great time, and the best part was the New Year's Toast given my hubby to our guests!
