Pink Obsession

photo from
See me over there with my FUN pink hair? ...well not really but in my mind!  My friends would probably tell you that I can easily become obsessed with whatever project I'm currently working on.  Right now, that project would be little Ms. P's 9th birthday party.  It's going to be so PINKALICIOUS!  

January often finds Matt and I smack dab in some kind of project.  The cold Maryland winters make us hunker down and pick something in our house that we need to tear apart and "update".  Last year, it was the now infamous reading nook and black kitchen cabinets.  This year we are all about the organization and de-clutterfying (I KNOW you love when I make up my own words. I'm a regular SNOOP DOG!)  Considering that organization is NOT mine or Matt's middle name, this is a big step for us! I even have a sweet little sign in my kitchen I got from here that says "Those who are organized are just too lazy to look for things."  I took SO many clothes to Goodwill last week that the nice GW volunteer asked if I had anything left in my closet!  Of course when one makes a trip to drop off unnecessary items to Goodwill, one must ALSO go into said Goodwill and see if they have something that one MUST take home.  I found a sweet cut glass footed ice cream dish that happens to match the 5 I already now thats a SET! WHOO HOOO!  I'll be showing them off at the PINKALICOUS party for Peyton.  Speaking of the party, I also picked up these ornate fabulously expensive plastic-wood frames.  Pretty, huh?  Well, not so much, BUT give those babies a coat of high gloss bubblegum pink and they will look FAB on the table with the menu full of candy in them!  Stay tuned for that post in March! ...see, I guess I CAN be organized (or obsessed) considering I'm planning almost a month and a half ahead for a party!  Now if I can only find a pink wig and a sweet pink apron...

Pink goes a long way, especially in the Maryland cold. I should know, we are in Maryland too. Valentines Day is all about pink for our house.

What a fun party for your daughter. My kids love when they get to pick the theme of the party even if it is just a color. Pinkalicious is one of my daughter's favorite books. Have fun getting all pinkified.
