this has changed my life... I am about to seriously consider one as a halloween costume!

Sometimes you wake up and you're like, "I wish my pajamas were appropriate for going out into the world, and I also wish they looked like an animal." Hey, we know, it happens to us just about every morning. Well, at long last, we've discovered a solution to this crisis, and like so many other offbeat hybrids, these pajama costume get-ups come from Japan. Choose a style from: dinosaur, panda, or kangaroo. They're made of a fleecelike fabric, making them lightweight, comfy, and breathable, and these things are meant to be super crazy baggy, so 1) they look hilarious, and 2) one size fits all adults.

flower girl.

I really can't complain too much about my childhood. Being the third child in the family I managed to inherit a ton of toys and clothes, the latter being my favourite hands down! I was renowned for changing outfits several times before breakfast, just to be sure that I had on the perfect one for that day. I guess I was never really convinced that I had made the right choice, because I usually had to make another couple of changes before the day was over. I drove my Mother crazy!

Despite my extensive wardrobe selection, there was one coveted dress that I never had- a flower girl dress. I wanted more than anything to be that small person, all dressed up with the special hair-do and the basket of petals in hand. Well it just never happened I NEVER got to be a flower girl. SAD PANDA!!!

But don't feel too sorry for me. Lets just say I make every effort to make up for that piece of girlhood I think I missed out on. I am now the biggest flower girl I know. My heart melts when it comes to flowers... Last night I was watching Gossip Girl and I cried when Chuck Bass was on top of the Empire State Building with Peonies waiting for Blair Waldolf. It cute-ed me out.

My apartment is filled with flowers at the moment. I buy a bunch once a week down at my local Thomas Duxs. :-) I can't really explain what they mean to me and how much happiness they bring ....... The only explanation I can come up with stems (!!!!) from my very earliest recollections of flowers and the giving thereof.

From the time I was about 4 years old - my Dad would bring me flowers every Friday along with a Barbie magazine. I remember looking forward to it each week and wondering what colour and type they would be!

Anyway I thought this post would be appropriate for the beg
inning of SPRING! I love spring sooo much! When I woke up this morning... I opened my windows and the beautiful spring breeze wafted in along with a massive bee.... I felt like I was in a film about 'spring'. It was quite funny... I had a dvd case in my hand 'shoo-ing' it out to its outside habitat. After a while I gave up and the bee and I shared breakfast. Then he left. Out the window! YAY!

So if you ever need a flower girl... You know who to call. Just because Im 5'9 doesn't mean I wouldn't fit into your bridal party. Please consider me as an option.

Warm regards, Spring wishes and Flower kisses.
