Bat princess

Dropping the girl off at school today, I noticed many princesses heading into class. A cinderella with plastic glass slippers. A pink princess with a long train coming from her hat. And then there was my kid. Long black dress with clip in bat ears and dark smokey make up. If I would have had a choice, she is the one I would have picked. I like having the odd one. She is a leader.

Mario and Luigi

Bec and his best friend dressed up like Mario and Luigi today. They both love the Mario games so the costumes are right up their alley. Those two could be twins. It was neat to see them hanging out together at preschool. Super cute.

Back from CA

But man did I miss my boys. This morning Bec said to me,
"Mom is your heart fixed cuz you came home from Disneyland? Cuz my heart is all fixed now."
I love this guy so much.

Release date!

Just picked up the new Kat Von D book! I'm only a day late and I used a 33% off coupon. Lots of amazing reading and studying hours for less than $13. The book is waiting on my bathroom sink for me to climb into the tub and read it tonight!

And Friday is the beginning of dress up weekend for Halloween.

This is exciting!

Disney Princesses

Being around all of the princesses the last couple of days has me wondering and thinking about which one is my favorite. Ivy really likes Ariel, and from the cartoon, I'd guess that Belle would be my favorite because she loves to read like I do.

But, although she isn't a princess, my favorite character would have to be Mary Poppins. We saw her a couple of times at the park today and I was enchanted. I'd love to be her for Halloween one year. I wonder if they sell the costume somewhere? She was wearing the white dress and hat that ties under the chin with red accents. Pretty.

bread and chocolate

croissants with chocolate baked inside. YUM!!
I had one in the Seattle airport yesterday morning. Then I had one at the La Brea bakery this morning on our way into Disneyland. YUM!!
The Seattle one was better by far, but I'm not going to pass up the CA one tomorrow or the next day. We are having a very nice time. Not a Branson vacations but a Disney vacation is just fine by me.
I can breathe a sigh of relaxation for the first time in a very long time.

Is there any better smell

than Johnson and Johnson's baby lotion? I think not.
My baby niece wears it after every bath and it smells like heaven to me. So, today I dug through an old diaper bag and found a trial size to use on my boys. Right now my hands smell so wonderful. I love it.
Chris said that when he was little his parents used to put the baby oil in the tub. Too bad I couldn't throw some in our jacuzzi to help with some stress relief! Along that line, too bad we don't have a Jacuzzi. :)
