Congrats to Alicia Rule, winner of my little giveaway!

Here is what she shared for her love of Spring…

I love spring because it means warm sunshine after a long Colorado winter. Farmer’s markets are going to start soon, cold season is coming to a close, my heating bill is going to soon go away, and Easter chocolate to top it all off!

Thanks to all who entered. I loved seeing all your Spring favorites popping up on the post.

There will certainly be more of these giveaways, so keep your eyes peeled and don’t give up!

Happy Friday…the weekend is teasing us!

A True Flip Flop Folly

This morning as we were walking to school, my {most worn} pair of black Havs broke.

Just like that.

We were about 2 minutes into the stroll and boom…the little between-the-toe part gave way and snapped in two.

I was bummed…we turned around and walked home, carrying the retired right foot flop.

Why couldn’t it have been my $1 pair from Old Navy?

Anywhoo, Elliott suggested we drive so we wouldn’t be late as a result of my faulty flip flop {She is SO my daughter! All my “C’mon, let’s go! We’re going to be late!” panics must have sunken in}.

R.I.P old black ones.


We survived our first t-ball practice last night.

So cute….

{warming up}

{batter up}

{learning to field the ball}

Great team with nice parents. Should be an awesome season…

Go Orioles!


Looking forward to a busy weekend.

Friday afternoon playdate. Dance class. Souplantation for din din. Mad Hatter Tea Birthday Party tomorrow. Errands. Jay’s doing a {fun} 5K {I should be doing it, too!}. Picnic at the lake on Sunday afternoon.


This morning I got rid of more crap and did my S.V.S. {sweep, vacuum, swiffer} and if I missed anything, too bad! It’ll still be there on Wednesday when I do it again to get ready for Lolo, Lola & Gramma K’s arrival for Easter.

Oh, and the Easter Bunny will be picking up a few things this weekend! He just did the math and realized that baskets need to be filled in almost a week!

What does the E.B. stick in your baskets?


Happy Friday!

A {Mint} Of A Giveaway

It’s time for another {Havaianas} giveaway.

The weather will be warming up real soon and you need a new pair of buttery soft Havs to show off those freshly pedicured piggies of yours!

I am giving away a pair of {mint} colored Havaianas Top in size 9 {Hav sizing 41-42}. Embellished with a vintage inspired pearl & rhinestone flower.

They’re simply adorable and so Spring!

You may enter until midnight Thursday, March 31st, 2011.

I will randomly choose and announce a winner on Friday, April 1st….no foolin’!

Extraordinarily Ordinary

Just an ordinary ‘ol weekend around here…

Friday evening dance class

Dinner at Islands for some fish tacos & a veggie burger


Early Saturday morning run/walk

Trip to Trader Joe’s

Barbie Birthday Party


Holdy got a haircut from Daddy


This morning we went and signed this one up for t-ball…

The deal of the century ~ $60 gets you a hat, t-shirt, shorts, socks, team picture & trophy! Looking forward to Saturday morning games, fly balls and base running. Spring training coming soon…

Then I drug the family to the mall to pick up some flip flop bling at Claire’s. Note to self: go to Claire’s without dragging the family along.

After Claire’s we headed to Wendy’s drive-thru {love their chili…oh, and the frosties!} and headed to the park for lunch and some sun.

Whipped up these flops for Elliott’s teacher who’s celebrating a birthday tomorrow:

I love the way they turned out…so Springy!

We finally got new batteries for the Leap Frog Tag pen…reading Toy Story 3:

Nothing too exciting, but it was a nice {family} weekend despite the loss of an hour!

Enjoying the extra light this evening and grilling some TJ’s carne asada, onions and peppers…

Hope your weekend was {simply} extraordinary, too!




Today was the first day back to preschool after 2 weeks off for this little one:

Even though he was in bed at 8pm on the nose, it was still a struggle this morn…

Too many late nights.

Too much pajama time.

Too much indulging.

Too many mornings of sleeping in.

{BTW, they do serve sodas in beer mugs at Islands and he was just eating the ice :-)}

I had to peel his jams off of him and pry his jeans and shirt on.

I had to promise him some {chocolate} milk in his sippy.

And a drive-thru at CBTL for a banana nut muffin.

Yes, it was breakfast in the Britax this morning.

Dusted off the crumbs in the preschool parking lot and we were on our way.

He was so happy to see his old classmates…and meet a new one.

Big hugs to Miss Cathi and some new play-doh and he was good to go.

Elliott and I ran a couple fruitful errands where I added these to my collection…


Dark Green Metallic Havaianas



Yes, I go to Ross a lot.

Like a lot.

I need to go less.

That’ll be my New Year’s resolution.

Because I’m tired of making it be “lose weight”.

But I LOVE my new metallic beauties.

Also, getting the ball rolling for Holden’s birthday party already.

How can it be?


Happy Tuesday to ya!

A {Well} Deserved Winner

Project 320 was, yet again, a success!

Many thanks to the ladies behind it all…and all the generosity displayed to bring clean & safe {water} to those desperately in need.

The random.org results are in and flipflopfollies has a winner:

Ellen from Stockholm!

Yay and congrats! So thrilled to send some Havs all the way to Sweden!

Thank you, thank you for your donation and entries.

The goldies and a couple rolled rosette pins coming your way {once you send your address to amy{at}flipflopfollies{dot}com ~ thanks!}

Also, thank you to Shauna for your entry. I will be hosting another Havaianas giveaway to welcome Spring, so please check back from time to time to enter that drawing!

{Shauna, I assumed that you were entering the giveaway for the gold Havs….if you were interested in the black ones, then YOU are the winner of those! Please let me know….however, if you know someone that these cuties would fit [again size 4/5 US, but they do run a bit big], they’re yours and I’d be happy to pop them in the mail to you!}

What a great way to start out the week before Christmas.


A Giveaway

You’ll flip over this Flop Giveaway…(I hope!)

I’m giving away my very first pair of Havaianas ~ embellished with some simple diamond-esque studs for a little bling!

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me about your favorite pair of flops and one of your fave Summer traditions, a trip you have planned or what you’re looking forward to doing over the next 3 months.

A winner will be chosen randomly (www.random.org) and announced next weekend. Giveaway open until midnight Pacific on Friday, June 11, 2010.

I must tell you that the flops are size 9 (US) or 41-42 (Havaiana sizing). If you don’t have big feet like me, you may know someone who does that you can pass these along to. They are brand-new, original tag intact and come from a smoke-free home (…going back to my eBay selling days!).

They will come with this cute coordinating gift bag, too.

So, please comment away and tell a friend!

Can’t wait to see who my first winner is.
