Unicorns & Rainbows

by HEAB on November 8, 2011

Life really can be all unicorns and rainbows. You just have to know where to look.

For the rainbows, we go to our closet where fun sparkly things live…


Summer would like think her aunt and uncle for her new shoes. She loves them!

As far as the unicorns go, we haven’t had much luck finding any, and now I know why…



Good to know they’re out there…or were at least.

That’s all I’ve got for today. Hope you’re smiling. πŸ™‚

Happy Belated Birthday to Summer! Love those shoes! I want to get them for Evelyn! Do you know where auntie and uncle got them? The only thing is she is obsessed with the strings on her current shoes, so I don’t know how long they would stay on! I hope you enjoyed your month off, we all missed you, but I totally get it! I just started a blog, but my expectations are just to get a few posts up a week and maybe become a little more savvy with photography!

Hi Tracey – best of luck with your blog. Love the concept of it…you’ve invested in some unsweetened chocolate, right? πŸ˜‰

I believe the shoes came from Target. They’re not actually made by Converse – just knock offs, but so cute. πŸ™‚

Ana November 9, 2011 at 1:33 pm

How can you not smile after reading this post? And those shoes are so cute, love it!

Didn’t the Unicorns miss the boat because they were flying ahead to mark the way?

HEAB November 9, 2011 at 7:45 am

Yes, of course! πŸ™‚

Summer loved her cupcake. Hope to share pics soon!

Marty November 9, 2011 at 5:38 am

Dang – I didn’t win! I tried at Alisa Cooks tho!

lOVE, LOVE, loVe Summer’s Chuck Taylor’s! Purple, purple, purple and sparkly! That note is sooooooo cute, cute, cute! Some people are so darn cleaver!

How did the birthday Girl like her cupcakes? xoxo

Christin@purplebirdblog November 8, 2011 at 5:18 pm

I can’t help but smile at the sparkles… love her shoes!

Lou November 8, 2011 at 4:46 pm

cute. so stinkin’ cute.

Rachel Edwards November 8, 2011 at 2:28 pm

Oh no! That unicorn letter makes me kinda sad – silly unicorns hehe x

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga November 8, 2011 at 2:15 pm

I love her new shoes, too!

And those pants…if they are from Target, I just bought Skylar those about 10 days ago! And she has a long sleeve purple tshirt that goes with them. Love target for their $5 per items finds. If only they made Skylar’s clothes in my size…I’d be happy πŸ™‚ Comfy and cheap is key. lol

HEAB November 8, 2011 at 7:52 pm

Yes, I think so. My mom got her the pants and the purple shirt – shirt has a big star on it. They’re the Circo brand, and so I’m assuming Target. Love baby clothes at Target. Old Navy is my favorite, but Target is easier on the budget for mom and baby alike. πŸ™‚

Lindsay @ Lindsay's List November 8, 2011 at 2:14 pm

Happy tuesday to you as well!!

Kiran @ KiranTarun.com November 8, 2011 at 1:26 pm

How cute are those shoes?!

Just returned from a long break and now Summer is already 1 year old?!? Time surely flies πŸ˜€

HEAB November 8, 2011 at 7:53 pm

Yes! Can’t believe it myself. Welcome back by the way. πŸ™‚

Have you considered a particular style your daughter will wear as she grows up? Many parents in the last few years seem to adopt specific fashion sense for their children (bohemian, chic, preppy and others).

On an unrelated note, I tried the recipe for the single-serving microwave muffin. It tasted terrible!
I used 3 Full tablespoons of quinoa flour (30 g), 1/8 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp vanill extract, 2.5 tablespoons of water (since it was incredibly dry), and 1 TB butternut squash baby food. I microwaved for 1.5 mins and ate a bit and did not like. I microwaved it again and again until it got rock hard really.

Of course I ate it anyway (because I’m completely stubborn and once I take one bite out of anything, I must finish the entire thing, it doesn’t matter how bad it tastes). I just dumped it in a huge tub of yogurt.

But what was my error?

HEAB November 8, 2011 at 7:58 pm

Haven’t really thought about a style for Summer. My parents never dictated what I would wear, and I’m not planning on telling Summer what to wear either. For the most party, I’m thinking I’ll just let her wear whatever she wants.

As far as the muffin goes, sorry it turned out so dry. Nuking it over and over does not help. If you try it again, use more baby food and less flour and throw in an egg or 2 egg whites. Hope this helps!

eee those are such cute little shoes! ( i actually typed shoesies at first haha)

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) November 8, 2011 at 12:27 pm

Love the shoes! I had pink high top Chuck’s when I was a kid and I LOVED them! I was also a collector of all things unicorn. There is a dreamer in me and I swear they exist!

HEAB November 8, 2011 at 7:59 pm

Sarena, they are out there somewhere. Don’t give up the dream. πŸ™‚

Health Bee November 8, 2011 at 11:42 am

Love Summer’s little shoe. So adorable.

Lara November 8, 2011 at 11:36 am

Unicorns are kind of an inside joke/special sister symbol with me and my sisters, so you and Summer aren’t alone in your search for them πŸ˜‰

Bobbi McCormick November 8, 2011 at 11:24 am

amen sista! Love this πŸ™‚

caronae November 8, 2011 at 11:10 am
