This week's adventures

This week I tried to start potty training Stella, and although she loves the princess panties, I don't think she's quite ready yet being that she peed herself while sitting on the couch playing iPad and didn't even notice.

She loves her Dora potty

They love mom and dad's bed after bathtime.

Grandpa hung out while mom and date did date night - popcorn and movies
Date night at the Stars game, platinum suite tickets - we saw Walter White from Breaking Bad!

heartbreaking, devastating
i forgot to breathe while you were rejecting me
for feeling too much.
nothing makes sense,
as if we could handle this,
we're in too deep to climb out
but haven't even scratched the surface
of the dirt/
don't you know there's work to be done, 
things to be understood, 
battles to be won?
no army stands behind me,
i must fight this on my own
no winners on this one,
only losers this time
heartbroken, devastated,
covered in satire and rhyme.

Pinterest Inspirations

These are the outfit inspirations from Pinterest for what I wore last week...

Can you tell I was in the mood for black and my motorcycle jacket?

This week I'm on the hunt for a grey maxi skirt and a tulle skirt so I can pull off my own version of these outfits:
I'm hoping that a trip to Goodwill and Plato's Closet will throw some good options at my eyes so I don't have to pay full price for either one. :)

Space Harem / Date Night

Our friend Suza hosted a party Saturday night with the theme "Space Harem," and it was so much fun. This group of folks know how to throw a great party! So welcoming, warm, funny, sweet.. Here are some pictures. Lots of people made their costumes but we cheated and rented ours. Shh.

Favorite: Looks I Love

So how many of you haven't jumped on that Pinterest bandwagon yet? It took a while, but it sucked me in and that site takes up way too much of my time... but hey, it's a nice break from cartoons and playing cars!

Here are some of my favorite looks pinned.

Tiny Ballerina

Stella started her first ballet class this week. It went a little something like this...

gotta have cute pictures before class, right?

tights, shoes and leotard too big... bangs too long

at least she looks adorable!

"hey Stella, get off the floor."

at least mine wasn't the only kid not paying attention...

I love this one.

At least Mommy learned something.

Ice Cream Date

Yeah!! Ice cream!!

Stella had German Chocolate

Cole's choice was blue - birthday cake

trying mom's peanut butter cup

Stella's ice cream - she finished fast!

Cole's ice cream - still looked like this when we left

"I need water Mommy!"

Drinking their ice cream
