A little twinkle...

I have a little story to tell. It has a lot of things that girls like. Sparkle...accessories/jewelry...
and a butterfly=0) About twenty years ago I was walking around Nordstrom. I couldn't afford anything too fancy, but I loved just looking around. I worked in the mall, so it was super fun to listen to the piano player during my lunch hour. Yes...they had a piano player=0)
So one day I was looking around and a sparkle caught my eye. There were TONS of gorgeous butterfly hair clips/bobby pins on display. I thought I was going to die. The colors were just SOOO
beautiful and I had to have one. I wanted them all, but I could barely afford one. I ended up picking a gorgeous red butterfly clip by Tarina Tarantino and boy did I wear that hair clip. Even after all these years it still looks beautiful and I love to attach it to sweaters and sometimes in my hair. SO, the other day my daughter was looking at it and asking me where I got it and could she have it. I'm not so sure she wouldn't lose it in 2.5 seconds =0/ So, I thought I could just paint one for her room. And she seems to be happy with being able to look at it all the time. A little twinkle goes a long way around my house=0)

Have a great day,

My other job...
J-Ohhhhh....mama this is so pretty.
Me-Yes, it's beautiful.
J-Can I wear it in my hair?
Me-Not yet honey. Maybe when you are older. I don't think I'd be able to find another one.
Me-One day I promise to give it to you, so don't worry. How about I paint one for your room?
J-OH...oh...that's a good idea. 
J-Please do it right now. Can I watch?
Me-I have too much stuff to do right now, but I'll start soon.
J-awwwww. Don't forget mama. Don't paint other fashion stuff. Do mine first.
Me-I will honey.
J-PINKY PROMISE....please.

Love is in the air.

I love the flowers everywhere and the excuse to give everyone chocolate LOVE and you won't get the..."I can't".
OHHHH.... we can and we will this 14th.
Use up ALL those hearts. Throw them in the air...whatever=0P


My other job....
Me-I've got a lot of stuff planned for Valentine's Day.
X-Ummm....what day is that on exactly.
Me-The 14th is on a Friday.
X-That's pizza night.
Me-Pizza is cancelled. How about something like....KING crab legs, red potatoes AND chocolate fondue.
X-I guess that will be okay.
