If only my 5 year old still let me pick her clothes (without an argument)

So I realize I've blogged quite a bit about what I want...materially. Maybe someday I'll delve into deeper things but for today's post, I'm still going to fantasy shop but this time for my kids. Now, mind you, this is only pretend shopping for them (at least for now.) The way I usually purchase clothes for my kiddos is at Target, haphazardly throwing things in the cart hoping everything will work when I get it all home. My 5 year old - going on 15 - has quite the mind of her own and gravitates to all things "blingy." I think she does this to push my buttons. For now, I've been able to steer her away from the glittery Selena Gomez shirt and we've settled on a happy compromise with a shirt featuring a sequined cupcake. But this is what I wish she would wear...

Look, I'll even throw in a Hello Kitty dress!

Stay tuned for the next installment...when I pick clothes for my son!     

What's on your wish list for your little girl?

Hello, Again

Okay, so I dropped the ball on my blog. It seems like the holidays came and went and then it was time to play catch up on cleaning house, school work, and real work. Plus I just needed a break. Well here's what I'm up to now... planning a trip to one of my favorite places, Houston! And here are a few things I'll be doing there:

A visit to the Contemporary Arts Museum - it's free admission and shows the most amazing contemporary artists working in all media.

A trip to Anthropologie to buy this dress:

And a trip to my favorite cafe from my old 'hood, Cafe Brasil in Montrose.

What do you like to do when visiting your favorite city?
