sunday playlist : Volume 1

my first iPod circa 2005

I have quite the collection of 80's music, mostly alternative.  I am a huge fan of 80's movie soundtracks and music in general.  This morning I came across my old iPod in the dresser and plugged it in.  Happily filling my Sunday morning with some great 80's and 90's tunes. Of course I have all that same stuff in my iTunes account and on my current iPhone, along with some great new stuff, but it was kinda neat to plug in the old girl and shuffle through my original playlists.  Thought I'd share a little snippet of my favorites with you, hope you enjoy them!

last stop: Party City

Today we celebrated my third child's birthday and let me tell you...third party in three months.  Yeah, you read that right and I am BIRTHDAY PARTY'D OUT!!  If I have to make one more trip to the Party City or mix another birthday cake I think I will barf.  Seriously.

Miss A says this morning during breakfast to her younger siblings..."You know when you get to be, say, 20 or 25 you won't be having all these fancy birthday parties, so you better enjoy them now!".  I thought to myself...did she just say 25?  HA! 

Miss A enjoyed her 11th birthday party with a peanut gallery, a baseball pinata, pennant garland, lots of Dubble Bubble Gum and all the kiddos decked out in their favorite teams uniforms

I think it was a HOME RUN!

my favorite things

I absolutely love spending time on the beach soaking up the warm rejuvenating rays of the sun and relaxing to the soothing sounds of the waves rolling and crashing.  I can relax, unwind and leave all my stress and worries behind, especially now that Little A doesn't eat handfuls of sand anymore.

I adore this vintage little beach tote I found here

This dreamy sand dollar necklace I found here is just my thing!

Love love love this guy's artwork, check more out here.

Seriously love these classic Wayfarer sunglasses.

My favorite dress is a halter dress, like this one I found here.  
The button is a coconut shell!


Happy Day Momma!

Happiest Mother's Day Momma, I love you

The kiddos and I have been enjoying the beautiful weather we've had for the last several weeks.  I finished up my spring semester with a whopping 3.5 thank you very much and with Spring Break giving my daughter and I some time off from school we headed to the beach for some fun in the sun.  We've also made some trips to the park and sno-ball stands.  Can't see a sno-ball stand without stopping for our favorite flavors... ice cream, cotton candy, strawberry and wild cherry with condensed milk. I've been snapping pictures with my camera apps like a crazy woman.  I'm addicted I tell you.  I use hipstamatic, pictureshow, and my favorite instagram (which is FREE).  These apps are so darn funky and make picture taking so much fun.  My kids are about sick of me saying "smile" though, especially little A.  "Put the phone in your pocket momma" says Little A.  "OK" I say, feeling like a junkie.

Hope you enjoyed the peek!
