Kids Know How to Have a Birthday Party and Other Stuff Like a Cake with the Most Candy

It was pretty much spend the night party time for my 11 year old when she came back from her class trip to D.C.  Her theme was CandyLand.  Her little sister prepped by dressing up like a blue Sour Patch Kid.  She came out of the bathroom room with a sparkling blue dress, a choker drawn on with a marker (great idea!!!), and sequins stuck to her eyelids with her lipgloss.
I was very f-ing impressed. ISSA LEWK!

My daughter decorated the cake herself.

The krew was lucky to have a gorgeous day that day!!  

Hardcore streamer decorations!

Also, the neighbors were puppy-sitting a baby husky.
Get out of town cuteness!


Sidewalk chalk and Big Mouth game time!

Wishes <3 <3 <3

So many straws!!!

My Grandma's dress from the actual bday celebrations I was posting about on IG, but couldn't quite finish the graphic...

Also, is Facebook just the new phonebook? Like modern white pages and yellow pages basically?

Birthday Time and Memories and Eyeliner & Puffy Hair All for Spring

Everything I wore when I was pregnant was hand-me-downs.  I love 2nd hand stuff anyways, but it kinda sucked to have to wear a bunch of weird stuff I wasn't into when I was pregnant.
Plus, I was fucking miserable!   Still grateful---sheesh.  Not ez.   Then I had Girl London aka LondonDaBridge and she was the sweetest little bb!
I cried looking at the old pics!!!!

She just turned 11 and so it's birthday hoopla!
It is so fun doing everything with her.  I remember shopping with my mom for clothes.  This day we were on the hunt for leggings and a raincoat for her trip to Washington DC with her class and a birthday outfit.
Here she is wearing a vintage dress----her choice!!  on her bday when she was 6 <3
I can barely take how cute she is----I'll cry again!

 Not the best pic, but this was her actual birthday day----look at the little one---funny face ftw!
Also, second-hand vintage sunnies ftw!

Eyeliner is so much fun!!!!  Blue is my favorite!!!!
Listen people!!!!  Make-up really makes me kind of happy about how I look when I'm otherwise not feelin' it!

This is the dress I wore to take cupcakes to London's school on bday and out to dinner.
My Grandmother's dress aka CandyInTheOven.
It's a handmade cotton vintage 50s dress.


Not so FancyBoy!!!

Casual Friday wearing my Dad's vintage Greek Fisherman's Cap & spring Break Legit

I got this vintage leopard print chaise at Restore Habitat for Humanity.   Secondhand shop, good for environment, wallet, I guess all of humanity because the charity helps build houses for people.  Anyways, the girls and I cleaned the fabric and I have to sew up a rip in the back, but it's a cool chair.

This looks kind of not that great, but the girls also helped me make spaghetti & meatballs.  Was delish!

Me on the first rly warm day with a shiny face lolol!!!  I was just happy for a sunny day.  My whole outfit is old stuff I've had, except for my necklace I just got from a friend. Recycled surfboard :)

Casual Friday looks!!!  Haha!  

Enjoy the holiday weekend <3

Spring Break is around the corner and that really has got people Happier!

A few good things happening :)
Girl London is stoked bcuz she is getting to take gymnastics again!
Spring Break starts in 2 days!!!

In honor of spring break and all things spring/summer I will post this picture that makes me look sunburnt!

Some of these filters r cool!!!!!!!

I'm 42, live in Asheville.  When u move here, u will probably need a Subaru.  This winter made me want 4x4 bcuz snow & ice!  The irony is 90% of the problem is the driveway...
I have kids.
I think Trader Joe's has a great wine & cheese section.

Shop this dress here!

These fun clam diggers sold here!

These are my rhinestone leggings.  They are flared, which is a hippie dominated lewk!!!, but I feel like the rhinestones make it ELVIS and I'm bedazzled by the loveliness.   
This is a casual, but still low-key DIAMOND GIRL lewk.  

If u have a bedazzler consider using it again for spring.

This is my Facebook page, which I'm bored with, so I've decided to make it inclusive, more blog-like.  The live music feed stuff on Facebook lately has been amazing.  Killer fresh sets. Big ups for music on Facebook.  It is really perfect for DJ's and EDM fans.

Timo's House just hosted the wodnb in Asheville.

Some remaining shows if u wanna catch them!

Me with my friend, Neala, & the girls in a thrifted dark chambray dress that looked terrible & I'll never wear again lololol!!!!  A recent hrowback, but it was a day I loved, but an outfit choice I didn't!!!

Me in a vintage trippy dress sold here. 

Me in a vintage fur coat at Desoto Lounge.  I recommend if you come thru Asheville
They know what's what.  They play RTJ & The Dead Milkmen and they make a good cuban sandwich for NOT being in Florida, bacon wrapped dates are a fucking must. 

FYI I saw The Dead Milkmen at a concert at USF in the early 90s lol b4 I went to school there...
Random Tampa shit! And that's why I love Desoto.  It feels like some random Tampa shit :)

Happy St. Paddy's Day!! I love all the Green and fun Shenanigans and the warm weather is making me happy!!

Turning rivers green and having fun!  St. Paddy's Day weekend hoopla!
I have on pink & purple eyeliner for spring!!!!!  I feel like it's pretty with the green!

This was CandyInTheOven's dress and she married an Irish guy, my Grandpa Gorman. He was such a great guy, husband, father, & grandfather...  He met my grandmother out west before they moved to the south.  The dress is mine now, so I'm wearing it for her this weekend.  

My grandmother very much picked colors of dresses based on your hair color.  She was a brunette, so this dress was purchased to be worn by a brunette---obviously herself.  She dressed her daughters in colors based on hair color.  Blondes wore yellow & pink, and so on.  I'm serious.

I've had the best flash of fashion inspo lately & I can't wait to share.  These pics were on IG & IG stories, but new stuff coming soon.
I'm so excited for spring/summer!  I love getting happy faces & sunshine emojis from my friends who are all thrilled with the warmer weather everyday----I feel it, too :)

Love & Light,
