One of my friends recently had her daughter’s birthday party and the theme was Doc McStuffins! So cute! She even made her own pinata. It was all quite impressive actually and the themed activities were the best! Such an inventive person she is!
Today I “Googled” a search for “best clothing for women age 40-50″. I wanted to see which clothing stores it recommended, however one of the links was a Pinterest list called “Looks for Women Past a Certain Age”. Since I do enjoy Pinterest, I clicked on it to see what Pinterest had to offer. Sigh. It had several gorgeous models aged 50-60 with beautiful silver hair and great figures. I don’t think it was relevant at all to me, not so much because they are older than me, but more because in another 10 years I think I will have more wrinkle than skin. My likelihood of looking that good are slim-to-none, or rather, none-to-none. It seems to me, I hit forty and it’s all flowing down-hill fast from here. I’ve always been a person who acted older than I looked, but now life is reversing itself. I am starting to look older than I feel and want to act. What the fuck? I’ve finally physically caught up with my mental self and I don’t know how to handle it. My body has passed me and is about to leave my mind in the dust. It sucks ass.
This is a simple idea I thought of while I was on my diet. One of my allowed snack foods was boiled eggs. So I boiled them at home, but to carry them to work conveniently, I cut an egg carton just big enough to carry two. It works perfectly. I put two eggs in, carry them to work and store them in the carton in the work refrigerator. Try it!
I have a relative who is having a baby shower soon and I was asked to create a diaper cake for her. I’ve never done one before (believe it or not) so I had to figure it out through trial and error. The theme was already assigned and it was Grey and Pink Shabby Chic. That theme is not really my forte, but I gave it a go!
I think it came out looking a little more elegant and blingy than shabby chic, but hey, I can’t win them all!
This is a cute idea from my son’s school. They recently made picture collages. The children painted a canvas in whatever color they chose. They also chose various items and pictures for the collage. Then the teacher covered it in Modge Podge (I believe). Cute huh?
Also they put a printed listing on the back of the canvas to show everything he included in his collage.
