Breast cancer awareness pink tulips

I had a super busy week...I was looking to today to go do some fun outside things with the kids...I woke up to 2 inches of snow...

On the other hand...The pink tulips i planted last Fall are blooming...They are pink tulips to support breast cancer awareness. Part of the profits went to the foundation.

It is cold...But this morning these pink tulips warmed my heart and gives us hope.

Happy week end ! rain, snow or shine !

The crafty Chrystal blog Gave me a Stylish blogger award.
The rule is simple. Pass it to 5 to 10 blogs and tell them you are talking about them and share 5 things about you.

  1. I love gardening...If i can't sometimes it hurts.
  2. I love shoes but don't have a lot. Platforms are my fav.
  3. I select the people i look up too very carefully. It is not because someone is famous that they are good people and worth you attention.
  4. There is always better than me, taller and prettier. Who cares. I just do things, i am myself and i am happy.
  5. I should have been born by the sea. I am a fish. I could swim all day and live in the sun.

Water for Elephants movie review and Vintage circus Fashion

I have to say...I am a big fan of Robert Pattisson and Reese witherspoon.
They did very good acting in this movie.
If you love Vintage you will love Reese outfits and hair.
The Circus wagons had me in WOW. I love the animals and tricks.
The story was very intriguing to me...The Circus life...I remember an old French saying...Running away to join a Circus...Maybe it was not so much of a joke at that time.

Here are some Circus fashion inspiration. They are my last family pictures from Alecia Dawn Photography taken in Richfield, Utah.

Very cheap and so pretty Butterfly Cake stand DIY

I was face with a problem...At least one to me...I had a super pretty cake but no cake stand to match or look good with it...I made one myself...

I got a Butterfly bowl and matching plate at Target for $7. In stores right now.
I used plastic glue to attach the bowl upside down to the bottom of plate.
No kidding, it looks amazing !

Ta da !!!
Ideas like this make me happy :)

Then to match the theme...

Paper plates from Target again...

You can find little tea cups like this in a thrift store. 
use your tea cups and attach those little butterflies from Hobby lobby on them...My 4 year old though it was so fun to drink out of them !

Bonne journee !

A quick change to going out outfit and the adjustment bureau movie

I liked this movie on our date a lot. Great thriller. The chemistry and love story between the two was amazing. Although i could argue the "free agency" line in the movie. I find it interesting and a great conversation topic.
Fun. Fun.

So going on a date with hubby...I find myself not wanting to dress up. I just put on some red lipstick and strappy wedges...It worked.
It is still casual in my book. The shoes are super comfortable and i love to be taller. I love the polka dot shirt with the fun ruffling on the shoulders. I made a cuff to the bottom of my skinny jeans. The thread color matched my shoes. Even better !!

The trees are flowering...
