Naked Palette

I may or may not have bought this beautiful palette this weekend. :) Yes, I'm addicted to Urban Decay. I don't know how it happened. I really don't want to think about it. But this palette, it makes me very happy. These colors are more like the ones I enjoy wearing daily. Beautiful! This was definitely a splurge. But one that will get very good use! ♥Anna Marie♥

Emma's 1st Birthday

I can't believe that Emma is already going to be a year old! Where in the world has the time gone? 2 months from today, my baby is going to be a year old! And I'm completely stressed out! What kind of birthday party are we going to have? Am I going to cook? Where are we going to get the cake. Etc...

Joe reminded me to breathe yesterday. To just stay calm. But how could I? So I called Lola. And we talked. Lola has a way of putting my mind at ease. Maybe it's because she's fabulous! She gave me the idea of a Ladybug...or Lovebug Birthday party. Perfect!

Here are a few ideas that I've found so far. And I'm really excited. Definitely on a mission now. So if you have an ideas, suggestions, stores, blogs, etc. please let me know. I would really appreciate it.

All kinds of fun decorations! The ideas are endless. At least that is what Lola keeps tell me. :)

Lots of fun ladybug treats.

And of course, you have to dress up the birthday girl! It just wouldn't be a party without a little bit of dressing up. :)

Now I'm off to go search for more ideas. And decorations, invitations, and so much stuff that we need to buy. But I'm really excited! I just hope, that 2 months is enough time. And I'm someone who doesn't sweat the small stuff. ♥Anna Marie♥

Daddy's Lovebugs

I was at a loss for Halloween costumes this year. It's Emma's 1st Halloween. And I wanted it to be fun and special. But I had no clue what to dress up our little girls as. Joe and I talked about it. But we kept coming up empty handed.

Then we asked Eva. She didn't know what she wanted to be either. We decided that we should probably go shopping. And look online. The minute we started looking online, Eva wanted to be a "Lovebug."

As we looked through the costumes, Eva had the idea that her and Emma could be "Daddy's Lovebugs." So we searched for the cutest costumes. And here is what we found...

This one is for Emma. I think it's too cute for words!This dress is too cute. And we have the perfect tights and shoes to go with it. :)

And Eva's. She is such a big girl already! This costume really shows that. I absolutely love the headband. Again we have tights and shoes that will match perfectly!

This is my costume. Yes, Eva convinced her mommy to dress up like a "Lovebug" too! I plan on wearing leggings with my getup. But I'm actually excited about dressing up too! ;)

These are the costumes that we finally decided on. And today, they came in the mail! We're so excited! Is it crazy, that I'm counting down the days until Halloween now? ♥Anna Marie♥

Peach Cobbler Ice Cream

When in the heck did Ben and Jerry's come out with Peach Cobbler ice cream? Last night, Joe and I were having a bad case of the "sweet tooth monster." So after we got the girls to bed, he went to the store. And he came back with this! OMG! It's amazing. I think this is now my favorite ice cream. No, I'm not lying. What, it's 6:20am, and I'm considering sneaking me a bowl. What do you think? ♥Anna Marie♥

My Snow White

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but Eva LOVES Snow White. We must watch it at least 10 times a week. She dresses up and dances to the music. She just really likes Snow White. And every time she sees an apple, she tells me, "Momma, Snow White's apple."

Last night, her and Joe were watching Snow White. And when this part of the movie came on, she started to sing. After, she told Joe, "Daddy you can be my prince. Until I find another one." It cracked me up! Joe couldn't help but laugh too. Now we'll have a cute little story to tell her 18 or 20 years. :) ♥Anna Marie♥
