New shoes for Augie and a Giveaway for you!

This weekend I took August looking for shoes. She had been standing up and trying to walk and her little feet need some protection. I decided I wanted to get her Robeez because I had used those for Luke and we loved them. I had my heart set on this pair. Aren't they so cute?!

Unfortunately none of the stores at the mall had them in her size. And if you know me, you know that once I am decided on something that is it. So we left the mall with no shoes. I started looking online for them and that is when I discovered CSN. It's a shopping website made up of over 200 stores! And let me tell you, they have everything. You can find a corner tv stand or new pots and pans, even a handbag. Two things I really like, almost everything has free shipping and if you have found the item online for cheaper you can let them know and they will make you an offer.

And now you are going to get the chance to win something fabulous that I have picked out from their store just for my followers as a little Thank You!

I am in love with these little pouches by designer Thomas Paul. I think it would be perfect to carry my credit card and keys in every morning when Augie and I do our morning walk to Starbucks. I decided to get the parakeet one for myself and if you win you can pick whichever one you want.

The details:

-You must be a follower of this blog to enter. Once a follower, simply comment on this post (One entry per person.)

Sunshine Day

Today it was so beautiful out so as soon as Luke got home from school we went outside to play.

He loves riding his scooter around on the tennis courts and Augie is happy to crawl back and forth and watch her Bigs.

We tried to blow bubbles but it was so windy they flew away too fast.

Then the wind knocked the bottle of bubbles over and of course the lid was not on.

Didn't matter because we were having fun!

I need a pickup truck

I so wish I had a pickup truck. If I did I would buy this

I found this adorable desk/ sewing table on Craigslist. I love it. For 50 bucks it could be yours.

Wedding headband that we forgot to wear :(

My cousin got married this weekend and August was wearing one of the Liberty of London dresses that my mom got her. She needed a little accessory to go with it so I decided to make her a headband.

I found this ginormous daisy at Michaels for $0.99

It was a little too big for Augie's head so I took it apart to remove some of the bottom petals. I had no idea it was so easy to get these things apart. Just pop of the center and you are good to go.
Next I took a piece of lace and fan folded it and then stitched through the pleated part a couple of times to hold it together.Do not cut the thread once you have stitched the lace. Thread the daisy petals onto the string through their center hole.
Take a couple of stitches through the petals to keep them stacked and centered. Then add a button to the center.

I then glued mine to a ribbon covered alligator clip but you could sew it directly onto a headband or onto a pin back.
Here she is in the dress. Notice no headband. She had it on when we were getting ready to leave and then she threw a major fit and ripped it off. In the rush of everyone getting ready I forgot it on the table so she ended up not wearing it. Boo :( I will try to get a picture of her in it later.
