Hit bull, win steak.

If you're from Durham, live in Durham, or have ever been to a Durham Bulls baseball game, you'll know what the above title means and how much fun you can have at a Durham Bulls game!

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the movie "Bull Durham" and MSNBC picked up a great story about how, thanks to the movie, the Durham Bulls has grown from a single-A, smalltown team, to a now triple-A team that last year set a franchise record by attracting 520,952 fans to their 13-year-old, 10,000-seat stadium.

We love to take our son to the ballgame and he loves to see the smoke sprawl from the ears of the bull when the home team hits a home-run. Here's a pic from a game we went to last year - he loves the food there (and so does his mommie!)

In honor of the 20th anniversary of the movie "Bull Durham", Kevin Costner will be at the ballpark this July 4th, with his band Modern West and a fireworks show. Sounds like a great treat if you're looking for something to do for the fourth in Durham, Chapel Hill, Roxboro or triangle area! You can buy tickets online here.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
