Happy Valentine’s Day

I hope everyone is having a lovely day. My girls both have Valentine’s Day parties at their schools, and were very excited to take their cards in to class today. I baked a chocolate cake for the occasion, and look forward to a quiet night at home with my husband and kids. I think pizza and DVD rentals are in order.

Kid Style

I am going to try and resurrect Preschool Style by changing the name to Kid Style, and get back to more regular posts. Amelia just got this Hello Kitty dress from H&M, so I thought it would be a good time to start. Isn’t this dress the cutest?!

I recently realized that I never shared a photo of Amelia’s bed after I finished painting it! I found TWO 1920’s Jenny Lind beds for a song on Craigslist, and Amelia wanted red, (her favorite color). I will be painting Maggie’s bed soon, and will share a photo with some tips on how I painted the beds, what color paint I used, and what I learned during the process. High-res

A Warm January Day

It is BEAUTIFUL today in Florida. The weather is sunny and warm with a high of 78 degrees. I knew when I woke up this morning, that today was not a day to be wasted. We decided to take the girls to visit the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary. This animal sanctuary rescues animals, mainly primates, from laboratories, retired acting chimps, and failed attempts at keeping these animals as pets. For a small fee, you can tour the facility, and feed the many different species of primates. After our monkey viewing experience, we went to a favorite old roadside ice cream stand for a cold treat.

I know many of you are experiencing freezing temps right now, so I am sending you sunny greetings from Florida, with the hopes of warmer days ahead for you, too.
