Classic Claus

Let’s take a step back to the OG of Christmas – Vintage Santa

Don’t forget to feed him when he stops by:

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice! (Christmas cookie recipe)

Perfect Gingerbread Cookies (because santa deserves nothing less than perfect)

Irene’s Irish-ish Coffee (cause santa is a big boy – er you are a big girl)


My Amy Winehouse

So in honor of my dearly departed Amy Winehouse I was thinking about getting some ballet slippers too. I love them frankly. I think they look super cute with a pair of leggings. But doesn’t seem like they are easy to find for wholesale. I will contiunue to search.


Today I Did Not Participate

I was in a grumpy mood, and probably still am. But I’m looking forward to going out today, not for anything special just grocery shopping. I have been doing some couponing and should be able to get a lot for $10 and I am looking forward to that.

I will be going to LA next week. Hopefully, I can convince my mom to go down there on Wednesday morning. Otherwise, I will have to wait for my car to get repaired this saturday.

Today has just been a big pity party for me and I seriously hate these kinds of moods. Nothing a little prayer can’t heal though.

Went online on Friday and looked at some wholesalers for shoes and saw some really great ones. I’m just hoping that I can score some in DTLA for a little less. Right now I’m just going to start off small. I was planning to start selling at the swapmeet but unfortunately that is going to have to wait for a minute. I will invest a little money each month and hope to get some sells through the internet. I was thinking about putting up some flyers in my neighborhood too. Free shipping, hand delivery! Haha.



My husband the wonderful genius that he is decided to totally cancel our cable service. Now some might be quick to say it must be financial, the cable must have been disconnected. And I would understand that…we’ve gone a few days (maybe weeks) with a small disruption in our service. But no this experiment was not at all financially driven (although saving that 100 bucks doesn’t hurt). Really I don’t know where it came from but basically we can watch tv for free. I never actually watch “live” tv anymore anyways because im always so busy. The DVR had become my besties! But what’s the point of that when I can just go to and watch all my wonderful housewives tear each other to pieces there, and at the same time chill in my bed rather then the living room.

Not only do we not watch tv anymore but my son no longer watches and I no longer rely on it. Yes, I became that mommy that uses tv as a babysitter. No I am not ashamed, I’m busy! Now I must entertain my boy and all his random gibber jabs and find ways to do what I have to do and keep him occupied as well. But alas! There is the dear old friend the DVD player, he has come to lend a helping hand for when your really bored or children whom are extremely tired but REFUSE to take a nap.

Things we did today without the use of television –

1. Got out of bed at 6AM

2. Cooked breakfast, with my little helper next to me.

3.Blogged, twitted, tumbled, and fell.

4. Played in the pool outside.

5. Enjoyed lunch with Victor.

6.Made little Grace laugh really really hard!

7.Made pancakes (cupcakes)!

And tomorrow will be a totally awesome day…and very busy and hopefully I find the time to blog about it.


Apples and Oranges

I just found an interesting book about marketing to women. Should be helpful, I will be reading throughout the day…and it will probably take a me awhile to finish (if it continues to captivate me) seeing as I have a million billion other things to do.
