A visit with Chickie...

Hi everyone, it's Chickie Nakamura bringing you a special blog post. Bet you're surprised to see me here on the Addict blog today! Today is a special day because Tina has agreed to let me do a whole post of my own. I was so excited when she agreed to it...was a little nervous that she wouldn't, but my idea of posting about my fun time with her and her family was such a good idea that she couldn't say no. :)

I had a great time on my visit and was lucky enough to even be invited to her niece & nephews 1st birthday party.

Tina said she's sorry about the pictures, she didn't realize her batteries were so drained on the camera
To start off our fun weekend, her Mom came over and we went to the nail salon for a little manicure, then had some seriously fun times shopping. I wanted to go to the mall, but apparently Tina has an unnatural obsession with Target because she insisted we go there instead. I thought I should get to pick since I was the guest but she wasn't having it. That's okay though, I like Target too and she said that it had a Starbucks inside it so that really made me happy.

The first place we hit was the shoe section...
They had LOTS of new styles to choose from...3 pairs later and Tina was happy happy happy! Then we browsed the other areas of the store and finally ended up in the toy section.
The toy section was real fun. I can't believe how many isles of toys there! Tina finally decided on this fun wagon. I'm thinking I need to ask my Mom, Nami, to get me a wagon too. I can put all sorts of fun things in it, other Chickies, teddy bears, baby dolls, flowers and even Christmas fun fun! :) Fingers are crossed, wish me luck asking her!!!

After we came home I helped Tina make the twins a birthday card. Don't you just love the fun colors and those wood veneers she picked up from Ellen Hutson? She found that site through my sister, Paulina. There's a link on Paulina's blog, Pretty Pink Posh.
Tina used her ink pads to color the wood veneers so they would perfectly match the card then coated them with Crystal Lacquer so the color didn't rub off...she's pretty smart! ;)

 I had a ton of fun at the party too. There was chili, hot dogs, chips, veggie trays and of course, cake & ice cream. There were fun decorations, lots of presents and Lucy & Henry even had their own cakes that their Mommy had made for them (she's uber talented). Tina told me the story about how they were born too early and had a little trouble getting their start in the world so this occasion was truly a blessing to celebrate. Here's some pictures of me enjoying the fun festivities...

Before I left to go back home Tina and I discussed her DeNami collection. She was telling me that her favorite stamp right now is the new gingham background. I suggested that she put one up in a giveaway. We did a little brain storming and decided to make it a Facebook giveaway. All you have to do is "like" the DeNami Addict Facebook page and leave a comment on the giveaway post she will have the page a little later today. If you already like the Addict page just leave a comment on the special post. Tina will randomly draw a name on Wednesday to win a brand new gingham background fun!! (And isn't the graphic with my picture cool? Tina asked my sister, Paulina, if she could make something fun for the giveaway and she took time out of her busy busy busy schedule to help out, she's super awesome!)

Thanks for stopping by and reading about my fun time, I hope to visit with you too very soon. Don't forget that there's fun stuff planned all month long over at DeNami so check the party page often for new updates!

See ya later,
