classy affair

We are hosting a Classy Cocktail Party for New Year's Eve
(so classy it requires capitalization)
 Mr. Henry is not invited....

....although he does enjoy a good party. 
I've been trying to decide on what hors d'oeuvres to serve. 
I'm thinking definitely this.

And perhaps something with figs....I can't remember ever having eaten a fresh fig, nor do I know when they are in season, but they always look delish.
PS: sweet photo of Henry by my sister....she is so good

it never fails....

i grab the shopping cart with the bum wheel.

you know, the one that pulls left (or right) and fights you the whole time you're in the store.

yup.  that's the one i always seem to pick.

PS: i think i might need these...just sayin

things i heart right now....

*These disgustingly delicious chips have changed my life for the better....they are that good

Staring At Stars dress

*This dress I just got...I think I might rock it out on NYE 

*When this boy gets angry he stomps his feet and it never fails to make me chuckle...he really knows how to throw a fit!

PS: to add to the list of things I don't heart right commercials where someone receives a car as a christmas gift.  does this really happen?  do people really put the giant red bow on top of a car and literally surprise a loved one with it?  not in the world I live in...just sayin

the busiest of days.....

Today was a busy day for our wee little family.

The Highlights:

*Henry and I went to his first music class
*While waiting in line for Henry's picture with Santa.....'Santa' checked is mobile.  I guess he had an important text from Mrs. Claus?

(as you can see.....Henry found Kris Kringle to be highly suspect)

*Had a seriously delicious chocolate shake from (where else) Steak-N-Shake.

The Lowlights:
*We drove to 4 stores in search of lights for our tree...apparently you must purchase these a year before you actually need them!
(thanks Madre for finding them at the store near your house!)
*Found out our computer crashed yesterday and may or may not have lost every picture we have ever taken of Henry.  Fingers crossed the professionals can recover them!

dance pants?.....maybe

(found here)

I bought these pants last night. 

I fear they might look better on the toothpick that is the model than on me and my post baby hips.....

but they ended up only being $11 (gotta love a surprise coupon code....on top of a sale!) so obviously I couldn't pass them up!

It may or may not be 'hammer time' wihen these little gems arrive!

PS: watched Black Swan for the first time the other night.  um about that.......
