...what is it?....a pretty flower pot, where all the flowers are pens!...I've seen it in stores, by the cashiers and now I will use it too for the class I teach at church...
...it was pretty cheap: flower pot from wal-mart ($3), flowers form the dollar store...floral tape from the dollar store, and pens...yes, you guessed it...from the dollar store!...just attach the flowers to the pens with the tape and tadaaaaaa!
...but I love it!!!!....I painted my fridge...yes, again....We used to have a very old crappy one, so I decided to painted it with chalk paint. My neighbors and nephews loved to draw on it...then that crappy fridge pooped out and we got another crappy one from ksl. I was not in the mood of doing anything to it, since I knew it was going to broke on us as well...Finally, my sweet sis. in law gave us her fridge when they moved to Colorado...a much better fridge, but white...It didn't go very well with the rest of the furniture, so yesterday it was go time....creativity time....and maybe, just maybe, I went a little too far...you decide.
Well, first I must say that last time I painted the fridge I was 8 months pregnant and it was such an effort and pain...this time Mr. D was the pain!...he would not leave my side!
So first I used some pretty duck tape that I found at Robert's for 50 cents to make a frame....and after, I used frog tape to get it ready for the chalk paint.
Yes my friends, Mr. D. turns one in a little bit more than 2 months, and I want to make it very special....it's his first birthday! and maybe I want to celebrate too that he is alive!, that I didn't do it so bad as I thought I was doing during his first weeks of life and that he's a healthy and strong boy! So I got one of this cake molds to make a BIG cupcake...
I think they are so cute...that will be the cake Mr. D will destroy all by himself. For the rest of the party I will have another cake, I haven't decide it yet.
...so I will probably practice this week...I will make one to see how it turns out. I'm still looking for a theme or idea for the party...any ideas? (just so you know I'm not very into the Disney or Cartoon characters thing...) So yeah...I'm as excited as when I was planning my amazing circus baby shower with my sister Ama...
I know, I know...I can't blame Mr. D for having a super messy closet, but he doesn't help to keep it tidy, that is for sure...here's some proof:
he's into EVERYTHING.. and this was my favorite moment:
...he struggled for a while until I decided to put the camera away and help him...I know, how rude of me. So yep, this weekend it going to be the weekend...I'm going to organize it and get ride of a lot of stuff that I don't wear/fit anymore! D.I here I come!:)
I always struggle when writing in my blogs...should I do it in Spanish? or English (I know most of my friends from Spain understand English) and doing it in both languages,well...it's extra work, but I will do it if I knew that someone needed it, so this is your chance...leave a comment if you prefer that I do it in either or both... ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Muchas veces cuando me pongo a escribir en mis blogs, no se si hacerlo en ingles o en español..creo que en general, lo hago en ingles porque asumo que la mayoria de personas que leen mis blogs entienden ingles, pero esta es tu oportunidad...si te gustaria que lo hiciese en ambos idiomas, dejame un comentario.
So today Mr. D and I walked to the grocery store...it was early and hot, and I was not in my sexiest (sweats, no make up and a greasy ponytail)...but I wanted to get some exercise done and start the week with the right foot....Mr. D FINALLY fell asleep on the way there, so as I was getting ready to check out and I was rocking D's stroller so he wouldn't wake up, the lady in front of me checked me out, and asks me: "Is that a newborn?" and after I told her that he was not so new anymore, that he was 9 months and that I just didn't want him to wake up because he is the worst napper ever (meaning he hardly ever takes naps) she says:"Oh....you just look so tired, so so tired...I don't think I have ever seen anybody looking so beaten up!"...and not happy with that comment (that in my mind translated as "You just look so ugly....so so ugly...I don't think I have ever seen anybody looking so ugly") she added :"And how come he is not napping?...he should be by now...that is not normal, I have 3 kids, and all of them slept trough the night from month 2 and love taking at least 3 naps a day"...are you serious?....she could just have finished me right there with a punch in the face....is that so rude or what?...so lady, if you are reading this, first I don't know you and you don't know me, so I don't need your comments, second those mom jeans and that fried hair are not in style anymore and third, your kid maybe naps like and angel, but he was ugly as hell. Now, I feel better.
