    How fun & thoughtful a SKYPE baby shower will be. Too bad that can’t pass you a plate of cake & ice cream right.

    My weekend is empty, SQUEAL! Except for a bday party for a neighbor who is turning 1. But it’s a neighbor, so I can walk there, so to me that really doesn’t count.

    I am getting a lot of sewing in. Once the boys wake up & it’s a fair start to their day, I make their chore list & they get hopping on it! I did love my babies to bits, but boy it’s a beautiful day when they can do chores & help out around the house!

    Enjoy your dinner out. Happy Birthday Zak!

    Those colours are beautiful! I love them! My plans this weekend are basically pampering myself. Painting my nails, conditioning my hair, doing a facial, those kinds of things.

    I love those Essie colors, specially the gray one.
