We couldn't help ourselves :)

In a home FULL of little boys,



Annie & I don't get a lot of girl time.
But when we do....we have sooooo much fun!

The other day Auntie Cake took the boys
& we had our chance.

She picked a flower and put it in my hair.
Then, when we were heading to the Mall I was going to take it out.
"Mom, you have to wear it to the Mall."
"Okay Honey, but only because you picked it for me, but you have to tell me if it wilting."
"Yeah, and cause I don't really want to walk around with a mom with a dead flower in her hair."

Thanks kid.
 
Lunch of course...Chinese.
 

Then we hit Claire's and found treasures.

The cutest little billfold,

and lots of  sparkly stuff.!
 
 
Even I was in the mood for a little bling!
 
 
But wouldn't you know...
a few weeks later my phone was missing an awful lot of jewels.
(Something to do with that house full of boys).
 
So yesterday I peeled them all off, gathered my supplies
& used the (now) clear case to start fresh.
 
 
The hardest part was choosing:
 
Pink & Turquoise                or                   Gold
 

Stripes won :)
Clear tacky glue a stripe inside the cover with a paint brush.

 
Sprinkle
 
 
& repeat.

 
Now here is my big tip :)
 
Use a dry paint brush to clean out the loose sprinkles between stripes.  It makes the job a lot easier!
 
 
And when you are done you have a case with sprinkles on the inside so little boys' fingers can not pick them off :)
 
 
& no one will have a phone just like yours.
 
(you can order clear cases LOTS of places :)
12 bucks here.
 
 Gotta be girly!

Like the bling! And we had a fun time with the boys. No sparkles or bling, but loads of rocks, water and mud. And sticks. Can't forget the sticks, of course.

I like the stripes way better than the silver. Certainly very girly. Glad you and Annie had a good time at the mall. It's always nice to have some girl time.

Gotta be girlie indeed! Love that case! What a cute idea ... and what a cute mommy to wear the non-wilted flower in your hair through the mall. You are a trooper. Love that little Annie girl of yours too! xo
