Busy Days Equal Early Bedtimes

Today was a busy day and initially started with the possibility of no plans because of rain, and ended up being jam packed with activities. The house needed a major wipe-down, so my little man and I vacuumed and cleaned, etc., etc. He loves to clean and I totally use that to my advantage. Then my mom decided to come over and we headed to the mall and I managed to not buy a single thing, although I tried on the Cutest orange cord jacket at Belks that was ON SALE! But I'm trying to be better...

Then the soccer game I thought would be cancelled because of rain was still on and my little guy played with two of the little girls that are on his team. They played ring around the rosie while he tried to beat Beckham Jr., to no avail. At least he's remembering to say, "oh pooie", like I taught him instead of flailing on the ground crying when the other team scores.

Then, our neighborhood had their annual chili cook-off, with face painting, tattoos, a fire truck, balloon man and cupcakes. Today's fun tip - this cool face-painting book would make a great birthday gift - the lady painting faces had it tonight and it tells you step by step how to paint some really cool designs. I think it would make a unique gift!

Needless to say, little man was tired by this point, so he and hubby were officially out at 7:30. Good for me cause I rented a movie, poured a glass of wine and chilled on the couch. Mommie time, love it.


  1. I hear ya! I made it though almost an hour of wandering through Southern Season after a delicious wine tasting and dinner event... without buying anything other than my ticket. I call that impressive for a Saturday.

  2. Wow, what a busy day! Sounds like fun! And so did Mommy time :)

  3. All in all, I'd say you had a great day! Glad you were able to fit some time in for yourself!

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 Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
