November was another busy one! My best friend got married, I had my 10 year wedding anniversary, and we went on our first trip away without the kids! I also enjoyed lots of family time during the long Thanksgiving weekend. So here is what my family is LOVING this month.
Clipless Curling Iron
I have had this Clipless Curling Ironfor well over a year, but every time I would try to use it, I just couldn’t get the look I wanted. Well, thanks to the magic of YouTube (and my Intel Tablet) I finally know how to use this thing! And I am obsessed. I have been rocking bouncy, curly hair wherever I go. At almost every event I went to this month, I wore it curly. I have even been wearing it to work that way, since I actually find it is faster to curl my hair. (instead of using my straightener)
Garbage Pail Kids
My father-in-law gave my husband a huge box of his old trading cards, which included a MASSIVE collection of Garbage Pail Kids. We spent a whole afternoon looking at all the cards. Hudson had never seen them and he was dying laughing. They still sell these things!! We saw some at Target when Hudson and I were looking for Pokemon cards (which you will read about shortly) and he was like, “Look Mom! Dad’s Garbage Pail Kids!!” He also had a bunch of Star Wars trading cards, it’s so much fun to see what we collected as kids!
This is a fairly new obsession in my house. Hudson began asking for Pokemon cards when his friends started trading them at school. A few kids actually gave him some, just so he could participate in the trading fun. (how sweet is that?) I told him I would take him to buy a pack since he did good on his report card. Then he collected every dime he had and managed to buy two more packs on his own. Apparently the cards are used for some type of game, but Hudson and his friends have no idea how to play. They just trade cards and talk about the ‘power level’ each one has.
Miss Mila is in LOVE with Minnie. She asks for Minnie all the time. We have a few Minnie dolls, and there is one that she carries around all the time. We have a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on the DVR that is the Minnie Pet Show episode… and she always is asking to watch it. Another huge development from this new found Minnie love, is that now Mila likes BOWS! (thank you, Minnie’s Bowtique) I have DOZENS of hair bows, but she would always rip them out. Now she ASKS for bows… and keeps them in her hair ALL DAY. It’s amazing, really. She is always pointing on the bow on her little Minnie doll… and says, “Bow”… then she will point to her own bow and smile. It’s seriously so cute.
