Get the kids in on the Ugly Christmas Sweater Trend

Hey Cuties, We are sixteen days out from Christmas and the holiday preparations are still underway. Did you know that it was an official Ugly Christmas Sweater Day? Me either. It takes place on the third Friday of December. This year it is Friday, December 16th a week from today. In honor of such a day, I will be on Good Morning Washington on ABC7 - News Channel 8 giving tips on how to make your own DIY Ugly Christmas Sweater. I showed you an adult DIY, now I have a kid DIY for you.

This Is How You Add Epic Style To Your Camo jacket

Hey Cuties, I've been having a fit to do a DIY camo jacket and I'm finally ready to share. I started back it back in May. Yes, you read that correctly; I started six months ago.  I've been excited about it all this time. I started it in the spring but summer was approaching so it didn't seem to fit. Not to mention I wanted it "just right" or at least close to the vision I had come up with in my head. I'm finally 100% complete with it and I adore it. Just in time for the fall/winter season. I didn't even know camo was going to be a popular fall trend. Winning!

No Questions Asked, Slay Your Guest With This DIY Jeopardy Game

Hey Cuties, MimiCuteLips is a safe place every day, but it is especially safe today. Feel free to disconnect from social media, the television and do something that makes you smile. I've decided to focus on my dreams and doing what I need to do to be steps closer to making them happen. I'm watching Christmas movies on Netflix all day while sipping my hot tea. Find your joy!  I told you how epic our game night was so I'm sharing the details on how I made our Battle of the Sexes Jeopardy Game Board.

You See This Absolutely Adorable DIY Princess Tiana Costume?

Hey Cuties, I had an amazing weekend, Saturday I hung out with family and friends. Sunday I didn't leave home and I was okay with it. I watched a bit of the Washington vs. Baltimore game in London. I did laundry, repaired my kitchen, downloaded a ton of pictures, did my daughters hair and a few other things. On top of that I still have a bunch of things I didn't get to. When are they going to make the weekend three days?

What You See Will Make You Adore Fall Headbands

Hey Cuties, We've arrived to another Hump Day Wednesday. I am co-hosting a Game Night with Babe this weekend so I'm working on some party details. I will recap for you on Monday. Babe has a solar return tomorrow so I need to make sure the kids and I shower him with lots of things that will annoy him love. LittleCuteLips took her Halloween costume for a test run at an event last Saturday and I need to make some adjustments to that. I woke up to 32-degree temperatures y'all. Mother Nature done straight up punched us in the guts. I need to get our fall lives together. The kids didn't wear hats, I didn't have on tights, a mess. LittleCuteLips has been fussing about her hair accessories because she is a girl and that is what we do. Some of her hair bows need repairing {read glue gun fixing} and she keeps asking for headbands.

DIY Spanish Flashcards

Hey Cuties, We are in our third week of school and slowly adjusting. My son is in seventh grade and a legit middle school-er.  Do you remember your first day? Do you remember the chaos, the feeling the panic and the fact that your parents no longer escort you in?

DIY Kids Calendar #LittleCuteLips

Hey Cuties, We are coming off a viciously hot weekend in the DMV area; temps in the high 90's feeling like 115. The kids and I kept cool at the pool on Saturday and on Sunday My Girl aka LittleCuteLips worked on a fun project for her.  She knows her days of the week but she doesn't have a concept of time. If I tell her something is happening in two weeks she asks me how long that is every single day.   If I tell her two weeks is fourteen days, that doesn't make things any clearer.  Although she knows her days of the week she has to sing the song to remember the correct order sometimes.

DIY Jewelry Organizer

Happy Monday Cuties, I've been working on a closet DIY for almost a week now. I won't be selfish and take all of the credit because Babe totally helped me out. Like helped me out so much this should maybe be his DIY. I was more of the designer and foreman and he did all the work although I located and purchased the materials.  What kind of work? Team work. {Quick, what show is that from?} When we purchased our home six years ago Babe hooked us all the way up. He customized our closets to our liking and I loved it. He gave me what I asked for and it was cool; until it wasn't.

#FatSnacks Friday: Cupcakes In Ice Cream Cones

Happy Fat Snacks Friday Cuties, It is our favorite day of the week at because *insert dramatic drum roll* IT IS FAT SNACKS FRIDAY! I've had this one on my virtual agenda for almost a year. July is National Ice Cream Month so this was sort of perfect. These are faux ice cream but it totally counts. Did you know that you could bake cupcakes in ice cream cones? Prior to this I so didn't know that was even a thing. Listen I've got levels to all of this fatness.
