I know ive been MIA. Mom life has kinda taken over. Here's a quick recap of things that have been going on. My lil man turned 1 last month (there was alot of party planning for that)- went with animal theme. I made pretty much everything except the pinata!
(bride, cow, and darth vader)
and this is random but my son finished death star. 3803 pieces and for ages 14+ completed by my 8yr old. Proud mama
And now his Baptism is this weekend. Ill post on that after.
Now to the shoesI got. I havent bought anything for myself in a long time now. So I treated my self.
Purchased all for $48 bucks!! Steal!
Thanks for reading, hope to be blogging more! Have a fabulous day!!
Check out my new shoe shelf. Its an Ikea Expedit shelf that retails at $199 I just so happen to see it at yard sale that was going on down the street from my casa. Pulled over real quick when I saw the shelf. Guess how much I paid for it............. $5!!!! Yes, $5 bucks. I was pretty happy with this purchase. The only negative thing is that is extremely heavy and was a pain in the ass to get home and in my closet. I have been working on my kitchen to closet forever now. I did a previous post on how my shoes were just everywhere( I don't know how to add the link???) It stores 4 shoes in each hole. 100 total, but i leave the last 3 bottom holes empty. As you can see in the picture my little ham claimed those as his. He goes in and out of them, whatever keeps him happy and entertained!
This is the mess I had before... The shoes to left were on a bookcase but the good mother that I am I put it in my sons room for his stuff. Yes that's a fridge and microwave. Like I said its the extra kitchen from the guest house that I made into the master bedroom. Plus I still use it for extra food storage. It'll be out soon. Anyone wanna buy a fridge? lol....
Id like to take out the cabinets also or refinish them to look more modern
I left space between my cabinets and the shelf so i could go on both sides to access shoes. I'm going to be honest, this doesn't house all of my shoes. I left some on the cabinets behind it and on the mini shoe shelf. Prior to this shelf, I had ALL of my shoes in their original boxes stacked in rows. Boxes would eventually become bowed under the weight, and topple over when I'd go to get a pair out. Out of site really is out of mind, embarrassed to say there were several pairs I'd forgotten I owned completely.
This shelf saved me major $$$ on shelving I had just looked at Lowe's about 30 mins prior to finding shelf. Works with the space I have, and has made me a happy girl! Now if I can just figure out what the heck to do with the rest of my closet!
My weekend started of with my daughters kinder graduation! I'm a proud momma of my little princess!!
Followed by a whole day at Castles and Coasters on Sat. we had sooo much fun! I didn't get very many pics though. Here's one of them on the mini wheel. I did find out this day that my son does not like roller coasters and my daughter is all about them. He kept getting queasy so we stuck to bumper cars, arcades and mini golf!
Last minute trip to Vegas! The drive sucked! lol I hate sitting for long periods of time. My bf wanted to go to support DJ Madd Rich
Lots of day drinking, naps, gambling, bbq's and just plain o fun!
my super cheesy pose.. lol
Me & the BF
more drinks! well beer. I couldn't finish mine I was too full
I wore a black dress with lace sleeves and lace cut outs with my lovely shoes below. Holy hell do these things hurt. Or maybe it was because I think we walked a mile before eating dinner then had to walk back and then stood, walked and danced around at the club. My feet about fell off! I think around 2am I ended up going back to the hotel room and put flip flops on. Ya flip flops.. lol Then back to the club we went!
my gordo started crawling this weekend!! Little man is everywhere now!
Likes to pull all the DVDs out. I had to move everything in low reach
So today I got pulled over. The most stressed 30 mins of my day! Ive never been pulled over, so this was new to me. I was heading to my kids school, I got off the freeway looked both ways and turned. As I'm in the middle of my turn I see the DO NOT TURN ON RED sign....
The exact thought that ran through my head was SHIT! and as I think everyone does I proceeded to look around to see if there were any cops around. And just my luck- there was one behind me. Second thought was now F*CK F*CK F*CK damnit! His lights went on and I pulled over. He came over to the window and before I even let him say anything, I said "I know what I just did, I saw the sign as I turned" He asked for my lic. and reg. my hands were literally shaking handing him this stuff. IDK why I was so nervous, I mean I knew everything was legit and had nothing to worry about except getting a damn ticket.
He stayed in his car for a while which got me worried cause really how long does it take to run the stuff?? He comes back to tell me my plates aren't coming up and neither is my vin#.......... then he went back to his car... Can we say my stress level went up right there.. Like WTH is going on?? He then came back to say he didn't know if MVD system was down but he didn't want to hold me up any longer and gave me a WARNING!!! wooossaaaaaa what a relief!!! I happily signed the warning slip (he said it doesn't go on your record) and said thank you!
So now I need to call MVD and figure what is going on!
Anyone been pulled over before?? I hope to say this was my first and last time!!
