My Kid Forced Me To Conquer My Fear Of Ice Skating

Hey Cuties, Friday was a special day in the MimiCuteLips household. "My Girl", aka LittleCuteLips turned 6 years old. She had been counting down for a week and was super excited.  Although she is the baby of the family she is also the old lady of the family. She knows what she wants and she isn't afraid to tell you. Birthdays are a big deal to her, she believes they should all be a major over the top celebration. Oh, and she doesn't' really want me to plan them for her. She wants full creative control.

Oprah Told Me To Conquer The World And Speak My Truth

Hey Cuties, On Sunday, I watched the Golden Globes, now usually I'm only here for the red carpet but this time I watched almost all of it. I was excited about This Is Us and Sterling K Brown. I also wanted to see how Issa Rae did with her nomination and a few others. In true fashion, Auntie Oprah took the stage and set my whole entire soul on fire.  I'm all about being intentional.

The Word For My Year Is Intentional

Hey Cuties, We've survived the first five days of the year and I'm sure you've done your reflection on the previous year. You've given thought to your hopes and dreams for the new year. You've put some goals in place, maybe even made a vision board.  If you are like me you have plans to work on the vision board, but don't worry you have time.

Easily The Most Creative Ugly Christmas Sweater Ever!

Hey Cuties, Happy National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day. I hope you are wearing your ugliest of sweaters while you read this post. If not I hope you stopped by so I can help you make one. I featured this on my Good Morning Washington segment this morning and it was a hit. Ha! Out of all the Ugly Sweaters I've made, this one is my absolute favorite. It is the most absurdly creative and funny. This is guaranteed to win the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, you know if you go to one and they have a contest.  Should you do that make sure you tell them MimiCuteLips taught you.

Get Your Hand In On The Thanksgiving Fun

Hey Cuties, We are three days out from Thanksgiving and the lines in the grocery stores were crazy this weekend. I hope you have all of your fixings together. Me, I don't plan to do much so I picked up two bottles of wine and some sweet potatoes for pie. After dinner we craft so I've got another fun option to keep the kids out of your hair.

Let Me Show You How To Be A Thankful Jive Turkey

Hey Cuties, I am still trying to get my life together before the year ends so I can sashay into 2018 with my ish together. While Thanksgiving is about the grub after the grub is time for fun. In years past, we have done post-dinner family crafting and it has been a lot of fun. Some of the kids are getting bigger so they may rather spend their time on their mobile device.  I have a fun thankful jive turkey to make with the little's after dinner.

Gratitude Is Inexpensive Don’t Be Fooled

Hey Cuties, Thanksgiving is next week and I'm not sure how it got here so fast. This year Thanksgiving is going to be a bit low key, read local.  As much as I love hanging out with our extended family I was not feeling the long drive south this year. I know some folks dread spending time with their family and especially there in-laws. That is not my story, our families are a good time.
