you're looking good just like a snake in the grass

something that makes me laugh is the concept of a lifestyle blog. because if i blogged about my "lifestyle", it would be full of tips on how to avoid baskets full of unfolded laundry, going as long as humanly possible before cleaning out the fridge and ways to heal your foot after you stumbled all over a floor full of legos(how have they not figured out how to make legos less painful? HOW?). i'm not crafty, but occasionally i pretend to be. the results are normally disastrous but there is one thing i can do, a snake in the grass cake. i'm a one trick pony when it comes to cake decorating. if you want a special cake, it will be a cupcake with green grass and gummy worms for a snake. since my darling reagan's 6th birthday was today, i needed to make 24 cupcakes for his class and i went all out (with my old standby). so, i don't have outfit posts for monday or tuesday(but who's counting? i didn't even dry my hair either day and i wore an apron. ALL. DAY. LONG. but that's really not too unusual. this is a really long ellipses.) but i have nailed down most of the details of a monkey/pirate birthday party. and that's my lifestyle. are you taking notes yet? 

but i did wear this today as we played in the backyard, tempting broken ankles by jumping off the paver stones. after wearing this completely blah shirt i decided it would be my next dyeing project. and you get to pick the color. just tell me in the comments what you think. you can even check out the RIT dye website by clicking here. fun.

well, you can do more than i can when i comes to baking! those cupcakes are cute :) were they funfetti cupcakes? or did you make them from scratch?

ps i think you should dye it dark green :) ..or maybe kelly green.. i'm so indecisive!

you are a natural beauty- you look so pretty in the first pic holding the cupcake.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY REAGAN!

and p.s. i was lol at your guest post on "southern living"- i use to love going to the TULANE football games at the superdome while in college, and thinking i loved seeing all the college section dressed up. i thought it was the coolest thing ever. and i thought it was normal- until i got to BYU- and nothing like that exist there.

and oh yeah... one more comment..since southern fashion will always be my favorite :-) i will always love seersucker- the first suit i ever purchased post college for job interviews was a two piece seersucker suit- so darling. seriously. love that suit- i will always keep it (in my closet) even though its a size 6. oh the days...

My vote for the dye is either Purple or Violet (yes, I went and checked out the web site). Since it seems as though I'm the only one commenting on the dye job, does that mean I win? And by default, you'll choose one of the above colors????

Oh shoot, I didn't see Kaitlyn's suggestion. Darn!
