a day in the life...

 breakfast looked like this: Sambazon Frozen Acai, Cascadian Farms Frozen Blueberries, Coconut Milk, Ground Flax, "Dino" or Lacinto Kale (is soooo good for you)
 I don't have a blender, so I "food process" it into a smoothie- and it's fun because 9 out of 10 times...it sprays me and the whole kitchen with a liquidy mess...it's more exciting that way.
our finished "Super Food Smoothie"...is loved by all...even my most picky eaters.
man do I love this little cowboy's "smoothie- stache"....he cracked up when he saw this picture!
 yesterday we went to Target to get Alani a new backpack and lunch box, well now they are really like "cooler bags"...as you can see by my picture....I was rooting for the Hello Kitty ones...however my little lady was not sharing my HK love....she was debating between Tinkerbell and the owl...
THE SCORE: Owl- 1      Tinkerbell-0  (ok but she did get a Tinkerbell backpack and Barbie Thermos...I know we're all over the place...Tinkerbell, Barbie, owls!

 Alani's back to school outfit: shirt & leggings (they were $4.50!- i love F21): Forever 21 girl, her new back to school boots: Pediped Flex boots in Elizabeth-
she loves these and I kinda' wish they were in my size too!

Alani, as I tried to take a picture this morning...and she just put her hands over her eyes and said, "the sun is in my eyes!" (even though she was sort of in the shade)...
oh this lil' apple-dumplin' face just melts me every day....
and then between thought 2,398,365 and thought 2,398,366...I thought about changing my hair....maybe to this: I was 16 and had colored my hair with 2 blonde strips in the front of my face (I was so on trend for Fall 2011 with my denim back in the 90's, ha ha ha)
and then my in-house photographer, Blakey...took a break from playing a game on my phone, to take a picture of me...well he took tons...but this was the most in-focus one...so we chose this one...but my favorite part of our "photo-shoot" was he told me: "you yook beautiful"...
even though I'm sick and feel yucky, and my head felt like is was pounding everywhere....
my little man thought I "yooked" beautiful...
my heart felt more beautiful than all the world...my little sweet heart...

we had tacos for dinner...
I can't breathe out of my right nostril...
and dear Charmin toilet paper....you may claim to be the softest...but my nose would disagree, sincerely sore, kandee's nose

Poor choices I made today:
*not taking the roll of toilet paper out of the sink when I dropped it trying to get some to blow my nose but heard the baby wake up and ran to get her-
Blakey washed his hands without taking the toilet paper out

*Believing Blakey when he said, "Let me polish your nails, I know how. Nana, taught me."-
I ended up trying to clean orange nail polish off the couch, some of it's still there.

Best choices I made today:
dropping the toilet paper to run and get baby (toilet paper doesn't mean anything to anyone)

Letting Blakey try to polish my nails-
I will always look at the polish on the couch and think of how precious my little man was, that wanted to polish my nails

Letting Blakey ride his tricyle down the path that looked steeper than it was...at first I thought he'd never be able to peddle back up...but then he said, "see you ride up hills back and forth like a snake"...and he peddled all the way up...

tired eyes and stuffy noses...but hearts full of perfect love...your kandee
