Don't forget, it all began with a mouse

And later in the afternoon I added my mickey sweatshirt and bought this cute plaid Minnie hat to go with it...

The Happiest Place on Earth

Going to Disneyland tomorrow! 
Celebrating my daughter's 3rd birthday on her actual day...
She is going to wear her beautiful Tangled dress and tiara!

We have a special b-day lunch with the Princesses and a personalized cake just for her... Should be fun.
Sorry no outfit posts today as I spent the day at home waiting for our new couch to be delivered, laundry and packing and trying to work while my parents took the kids all morning and lunch and my dad came in the late afternoon/evening.

Hope I can post tomorrow!

Here are the princsses if they were living in our age:
I am loving snow white the best! Ariel second. What is your favorite in their hip clothes?

So many hats and only one head!

 This is another inspiration I had saved a year and a half ago...
I picked it cause it was the perfect setting (combination) to showcase this beautiful necklace my husband brought from India when he went there for work in 2010....
 These are my old work slacks. They still fit and feel great. I just make sure I take them off as soon as I get home to avoid dry cleaning.

 Vest - Forever 21
Top - Mom's
Scarf - H&M
Necklace - from India
Pants - Express
Booties - Steve Madden

Had to get up super early and be at kids' preschool by 7:30 AM this morning. As you might have already figured out I attend a co-op type preschool where all the mommies take on a task and have to be there the entire time. These classes are completely free but they are on a first come first saved basis. So whenever a new semester starts we have to go super early to guarantee a spot. I was fortunate enough to be able to leave the kids at home and get in line and my husband brought them to school before he left for work which was an hour later. The class was a bit chaotic as it usually is with new families joining and orientation etc... 

Had to snap this photo of my daughter when I saw she had adorned all these costumes on her... She must have picked all these herself and another mommy must have helped...So cute...

After school I got to open the packages that came in the mail and set up my new HAT STAND! Hence the title of my blog post today...
I have been dying to find a solution to my ever growing hat collection. I envisioned buying bunch of wall hooks and hanging them all over this (behind the door) area but that would have required so much work and create horrible holes in our walls. When I was ordering a secondary portable clothes rack for my new business I ran into this wonderful hat stand (made for stores obviously) in the online store. I couldn't beleive it.
Fits perfectly too and each segment rotates for easy access....
Of course they won't be stored as shown here since they will collect horrible dust. I have most of them in a plastic bag for protection.
Don't you just love it?

Being Crazy Isn't Enough

 This was my outfit last night to a 'Captain Apprecation' Dinner given by the organizaiton that puts together playgroups by neighborhood and kids' birth age... (I am the captain of my playgroup)...
The inspiration came form this tiny photo way back 2 years ago on wearing berets....
I liked the idea of red mini skirt, mustard scarf and white beret with jet black accessories and pieces...
 This is the skirt part of  my old old Ann Taylor suit. I have worn the red blazer part a few times but hadn't worn the skirt forever. It is old so high waist and not very comfortable but for a short dinner it was fine...
 The booties and the red suede fringe purse were great touches...

 Top - Gap
Skirt - Ann Taylor
Scarf - TJ Maxx
Beret and tights - Forever 21
Booties - Gabriella Rocha
Trench Coat - Adrianna Vitaddani (sp?)
Purse - Thread Show
