Re: Poll: just for fun. :-)

  • 1. What did you have for breakfast? An Oscar Meyer Lunchable. And yes, it contained 2 Oreos. You can't win them all. hehe. What did DC have? mini pancakes, strawberries & blueberries, a piece of cheese, and milk (at least someone ate relatively healthfully).

    2. What are you looking forward to in the second half of 2011? our Disneyworld/Disney Cruise trip in Nov, and just Fall in general.

    3. Do you know what you're getting your DC for the next big occasion? (Christmas/ b'day, etc) I'd like to get her a wooden doll house... I'm eyeing this one and this one.

    4. Do you have any big plans for the 4th? going to the beach

    5. What do you usually get on your pizza? depending on my mood, I like sausage & pepperoni, tomato & onions, or just cheese.

    6. What's your least favorite room in your house? A toss up between our kitchen or our bedroom. What would you do to change it? I'd love new cabinets and a backsplash in the kitchen (and some new paint & other decor items). Our bedroom is just pathetic--I'd need to start from scratch with furniture, bedding, decor--everything. Maybe one day. :-)

    7. Do you plan to change the decor in your LO's room into a "big kid room" (when the time comes, if it hasn't already), or just modify the nursery? The plan is to keep her current room & furniture, just add a daybed and remove the glider. I have this bedding in mind, which matches her current wall color.

    8. What would you do with a weekend all to yourself? I have one of these coming up in July and I can't wait! I plan to organize (and hopefully paint) my craft room, and maybe go see a movie by myself, which I've never done.

    9. If you had $1000 to spend on yourself, where would you use it? Target or IKEA

    10. Does your DC wear clothes with characters on them? I used to be so opposed to this...One of many words I've eaten. :-)  I'm still kinda picky, but DD has shirts with Minnie/Mickey Mouse, Sesame Street, and YGG characters. Not a fan of Dora or Disney Princess stuff, really.. But if she loved it enough, I'm sure I'd buy it. :-)

  • 1. What did you have for breakfast? What did DC have?  Cereal and banana; DCs -- waffles

    2. What are you looking forward to in the second half of 2011?  Our first family beach trip at the end of July

    3. Do you know what you're getting your DC for the next big occasion? (Christmas/ b'day, etc)  No clue

    4. Do you have any big plans for the 4th?  Taking the girls to the children's parade but in general I find the 4th disappointing around here -- I miss the big parades that we have in the midwest with floats and marching bands, etc.

    5. What do you usually get on your pizza?  We make our own pizza usually and I like it with pineapple and green pepper.

    6. What's your least favorite room in your house? What would you do to change it?  Our living room.  I don't like the high cathedral ceiling; it feels cold to me.  Not much I can do except make it feel warmer with decorating.

    7. Do you plan to change the decor in your LO's room into a "big kid room" (when the time comes, if it hasn't already), or just modify the nursery?  We changed DD#1's to a big girl room.  Not sure yet what we'll do for DD#2.

    8. What would you do with a weekend all to yourself?  Get a pedicure

    opps...thought this said this weekend.  For a whole weekend to myself, I'd finish all the video compliations and photo books I'm trying to get done but only get an hour an night to work on them.

    9. If you had $1000 to spend on yourself, where would you use it?  Decorating items for the house

    10. Does your DC wear clothes with characters on them?  No, I can't stand them.  I will let her wear princess PJs and underwear but nothing that she woud go out in public in.  I don't like advertising for Disney for free and I think they look tacky.

  • 1. What did you have for breakfast? Granola bar What did DC have? A bottle of formula. She'll get some oatmeal at daycare.

    2. What are you looking forward to in the second half of 2011? I hope to get away for a weekend or two. I also look forward to DD's first birthday in November

    3. Do you know what you're getting your DC for the next big occasion? (Christmas/ b'day, etc) I haven't even thought about it! I may just do the "wrap something you already have" trick since she won't know what's happening for these events.

    4. Do you have any big plans for the 4th? We usually have some friends over, grill out and then watch the neighbors set off fireworks

    5. What do you usually get on your pizza? Pepperoni

    6. What's your least favorite room in your house? Our bedroom. What would you do to change it? Not sure what I can do because of size and layout. I'd like to get all new bedroom furniture as a starter

    7. Do you plan to change the decor in your LO's room into a "big kid room" (when the time comes, if it hasn't already), or just modify the nursery? Hmmm....haven't really thought about this yet. I guess a lot will depend on her personality at that time.

    8. What would you do with a weekend all to yourself? Get a massage, catch up on reading, purge the closets and watch bad TV

    9. If you had $1000 to spend on yourself, where would you use it? My first geeky response is to save it! But if I was forced to spend it, I would probably buy a whole bunch of new clothes.

    10. Does your DC wear clothes with characters on them? Mainly Pooh characters since she has her own Pooh bear from her dad. I'm not sure I want her to start wearing the other characters since she doesn't know who they are yet.I'd like to delay that commercialization as long as possible.

    5. What do you usually get on your pizza? cheese please!

    6. What's your least favorite room in your house ? umm...well we're in renovation mode still, so I'll go with the only room we're leaving until the end, the kitchen What would you do to change it? it'll be a gut when we get to it...the only thing staying are the appliances since we bought them new, other than that, it's all going!!!

We are in the middle of moving our master to it's final place in the house and what's currently our room will be transformed into the boys' big boy room (which they will share when old enough but for now Just Wyatt will reside in there) Nursery will eventually be turned into the guest room once DS #2 is older.

    7. Do you plan to change the decor in your LO's room into a "big kid room" (when the time comes, if it hasn't already), or just modify the nursery?  Since Ella's room was gender neutral, we're going to completely overhaul it so it reflects the little lady she's become

    3. Do you know what you're getting your DC for the next big occasion? (Christmas/ b'day, etc) No, but he started asking about a "tool table" the other day, so maybe a work bench?

    4. Do you have any big plans for the 4th? Nope.  Just hanging around, maybe grill some burgers and light some sparklers.

    5. What do you usually get on your pizza? Pepperoni if Liam's sharing.  I'm not picky, I like a good "supreme" with lots of stuff.

    6. What's your least favorite room in your house? What would you do to change it? Ugh, pick one!  I am so over our house right now.

    7. Do you plan to change the decor in your LO's room into a "big kid room" (when the time comes, if it hasn't already), or just modify the nursery? We haven't done a "theme" for his big boy room, just making small changes as we go.  When he's older, he can help pick a theme.  Right now, we took down the nursery bedding, put up royal blue curtains, and he's got Thomas bedding on his bed.  I know he won't want the Thomas comforter forever, but it was $30, so if he uses it a few years, it was worth it for the excitement factor it inspired in transitioning to his bed! :)

    8. What would you do with a weekend all to yourself? Oh man - SLEEP!  And sleep in!  Read a book in one sitting.  Write for hours, without interruption.  Drink a bottle of wine.  This sounds awesome, where can I actually get one?  hehe.

    9. If you had $1000 to spend on yourself, where would you use it? Kohls for some clothes, maybe NY&Co for more clothes, and Apple store for an Ipod Touch.

    10. Does your DC wear clothes with characters on them? Yep.  He has a couple of Thomas shirts.  He loves them, they are his favorite shirts, and it doesn't bother me a bit!

  • Thankfully everyone's allowed to have their own opinion about the clothes they like but thank you Wendy for reminding me not to state my opinion on-line if it differs from the masses.  The eye roll wasn't necessary.

    You're opinion doesn't differ from the masses...that very topic has been discussed before on this board and others have agreed with you.  The emotion in that face is called "confused" if you scroll over it.  It just confuses me why my kids look "tacky" if they are wearing character themed shirts.  No biggie, to each her own.  I'm just not stressing if my kids want to wear a Disney princess shirt out in public--if you don't allow your girls, that's certainly your prerogative.
