My Little Girl is One Today!

Dear Lucy,

My how the past year has flown by. It was only 11 months ago we picked you out from a litter of pups because you were the biggest and the softest little girl in the group.

At first you were just a big fluffy ball of excitement, but as you've grown older you've calmed down a little bit, I think. My brand new berber carpet has been peed and pooped on so many times I can't count and you've tried using just about everything in the house as a chew toy. Your daddy thinks you are Marly from the book Marly and Me and that you're the craziest dog he's ever met. You love to chew socks, pine cones and paper towels and you will do anything for a treat.

You're not a fan of Reese the cat and attempt to attack him at least three times a day, but he is not scared and never gives in so we typically have to seperate the two of you. Your big brother is still getting used to you, but on those special times when you let him cuddle you, it makes mommie and daddy so happy.

Happy birthday crazy one! Here's to many more years of adventure together!

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'…
