My Little Snow White

Serenity's beautiful Snow White dress from Boutique Ollie Girl (and matching AG doll dress), arrived just in time for Mardi Gras day this year!
But with all the rain we've had I was worried it would get messed up so I didn't let her wear it.

She was a little disappointed, but got over it quickly when she found out none of her little friends would be wearing their costumes either.
I was really looking forward to getting a bunch of parade pictures with Serenity in her Snow White dress though. 

Maybe next year!

Today is National Pancake Day and IHop is giving away a small stack of pancakes per person.
You still have time to get them!
They just ask that you give a donation to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

So Serenity got all dressed up in her Snow White dress and we headed to IHop for some delicious pancakes.
After a little shopping, we took few pictures before heading home.
She got a ton of compliments from people today, and everybody called her Snow White.
That made her day, but she told me, "Mommy I'm not the real Snow White!"

We had a lot of fun taking these Snow White pictures!
I found Serenity's pretty red hooded cape from Originals by Lauren Too at Etsy.
It's handmade from stretchy crushed velvet and perfect for dress up!

I love this one!
She's like, "You gotta be kidding me, I'm not eating this apple!"

Look at that little belly!

Boutique Ollie Girl has the best Princess dresses!
Angela is so incredibly sweet and amazing!
All of her beautiful dresses are so well-made - they will last for years and grow with your child. 

In case y'all were wondering, Serenity's shoes are Snow White Mary Janes from Stride Rite.
They have the cutest little silver apple buckle!

Have Fun!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

My hubby is still in Brazil for another month - no flowers this year.  

But when he gets home, he'll have a whole month of no work to spend with us.
That does help to make up for the long time he's away! 

At least I get to spend the entire day with the other very special person in my life.

Serenity was so surprised and excited to see this waiting for her today!

Oh and this is the delicious breakfast I cooked for my Darling Stinker this morning!
Orange rolls in the waffle iron!

Super easy and super fast to cook!!
Who knew?
I won't ever cook them any other way now!
I found out about them on Pinterest - you can find the pin HERE.

Hope you and yours has a wonderful day too!

Have Fun!

Mommy and Daughter Handprints

I'm totally addicted to Pinterest!
Anybody else?

And every time I log on, I get hungry!
Endless photos of delicious foods - I swear I gain 10 pounds each visit!

Yesterday I came across a scanned picture of a Mommy and her son's hands together:

She got the idea from a friend who created this scan with her son:

What a cute, creative idea! 

So I had to try it too!

The first time I tried a high-res scan, Serenity and I were touching the scanner and moving our hands until we felt comfortable.
I didn't realize we were putting lots of fingerprints all over that would show up crystal clear in the scan. 
So I wiped the scanner clean (I missed a couple of smudges, but I think that adds character), and we carefully put our hands down the second time.

It came out exactly like I was hoping it would.

Next, I did a little retouching in Photoshop.
First I turned it into a black and white photo.
Then I lightened the picture focusing mostly on our hands, while darkening the background.

I love the results!

Pinterest is the best!
People are so amazingly creative.
I love discovering unique ideas, delicious food and beautiful photography.

Have fun!
