Doing the Girly Girl Thing

As I have stated before I'm not the girliest of girls.  I should rephrase that.  I am minimalistic in the girly department.  I'm pretty low maintenance.  I am the jeans and a t shirt girl.  There was one time I wore a skirt to a geeky movie premier and got stared at.  I wanted to scream that I was one of them I just left my geek gear at home since I was on a date with my husband but I still got looked at like I was invading their territory.  That's what I get for trying to expand my closet. 

My hair is wash and wear because even when I straighten it I can't tell the difference. 

I'm still learning how to accessorize.  I like my special pieces.  I have a lot of very creative friends that have made me some rockin jewels, I just have to remember to put them on.

So why is my bathroom counter currently covered in girly stuff?

As you have probably figured out my darling Clover is the exact opposite of me.  She is the outgoing one that loves to dance and dress up!  She got to do both in her second dance show.    

Being a mom has certainly taken me out of my comfort zone on multiple occasions.  This was no exception.  Last year it was tulle and rhinestones this time I was thrown right in the middle of hair rollers and glitter!  This year wasn't as scary since it was our second year.  Last year we were fortunate to have some help getting ready.  I was clueless so we invaded a friends house.  I felt confident enough to go it alone this year but I still asked some friends for tips and hit up youtube for some tutorials. 

The hardest part was getting her hair into the ponytail.  It's what we fight about on a daily basis.  For being a girly girl she sure does hate brushing her hair.  She told me that we should film a video on how to do her hair.  She even started narrating it but the second the bush hit her hair there were tears.  As soon as the rollers came out she was fine.  She liked that part.  And when it was time for make up she was all about it.  After the curlers were in she insisted on sitting on the sink while I did her make up.  While she was sitting there she spun herself around and turned on the sink and added soap.  So she is sitting then getting the royal treatment.  Her hair is in curlers and her feet are soaking in the sink while her assistant (I mean Mom) does her make up. 

I took a picture just in case she does grow up to be a star, I have embarrassment material :)

I Have Stuff

I have stuff I need to post.  I have pictures that I want to get made into a post.  My excuse is as follows...It's birthday season for us around here.  Starting May 26th and ending in July we have 20 something birthdays and or holiday celebrations between that short time span.  So needless to say I have been super busy.  I have tons of stuff that I am totally slacking on. 

Also as of recently my Iphoto is corrupt.  There is a white circle with a line through it and when I click on it, it gives me an error.  I hope I can manage to get it fixed quickly because it's holding some of my pictures hostage. I'm trying not to stress about it too much.  It's just one more thing to add on to the list of things to do.  As always that list is pretty long. 

But I will get to it!  I have some cute stuff I have to share so it will be up as soon as I get the kinks all worked out.   

Things My Five Year Old Says

She hung out with Hubby's friend the other day and as they were chatting in the back seat he asked her

"Who is your favorite Princess?"

Clover "Uhm...I like Snow White (pause) AND Briar Rose.  And Pocahontas..."

"No wait just one!"

Me from the font seat "Depends on what time of day you ask her"

"If you had to pick just ONE princess to be your all time favorite...who would it be"

Clover "Leslie!"

All of us "Who is Leslie?"

Clover "you know mom the movie with the dread pirate and the really big guy!"

Me as it clicks "You mean Wesley?"

Clover as it clicks for her "Yeaaaah Wesley is the pirate.  Buttercup!  Princess Buttercup is my favorite princess!"

I will admit I smiled a little bit at that one because it's awesome.


Clover "Hey you want tickets to this?"

Me "Tickets to what?"

Clover throws up her arms and shows off her muscles "Tickets to the gun show!"

Aren't things your child picks up from other people great?


"What did you learn in school today?"

Clover "We learned about cows!"

"What about cows"

Clover pipes up "That they MOOOO and give milk."

"Well how do they give milk?"

In all seriousness she replies with "They pee it out"

I almost spit my ice water all over the inside of the car.

We had to explain the whole udders thing and she said that made more sense to her than cows peeing out milk.


Lazily laying in bed this morning and watching a cartoon she starts panicking because I farted in the bed.

"Quick Mom!  Get out of here!  We need to run out of here before your fart ball catches us!"


I stand by my statement that she is indeed the funniest person I know.
