So Much to Say, So Much to Say...

I spent most of the holidays in my small hometown with my mom and was unable to even get my Sprint card to pick up a signal, so I decided to take a blog break. As most of you know, it was a tough Christmas for my family, so things were a little weird this year and I've not been as over-the-top into Christmas as I usually am. Decided to do things low-key, low-maintenance and low-stress as much as possible.

An update on the whole parents being separated thing, since some of you may be wondering how Christmas went for my family. Let's just say my sister and I let out some big-time emotions in a screaming match the middle of Christmas day and things were much better. You could cut the tension with a knife in our house, and everyone was on pins and needles waiting for someone to lose it. My mom cried a lot and I called my sister (who's been through the same thing) and said, "What do I do?" Of course, there's not much you can do.

Hubby missed the big blow-up between my sis and I, but heard it from the other end of the house. He said my mom told him not to go back there because we needed to let off some steam, and that we did. I came back and he said, "What's wrong?" I only said, "The same thing that's wrong with all of us."

So sorry sis, for being bitchy on Christmas day. So sorry mom for not knowing what to do. And so sorry dad that you weren't there to experience it all. Then you could see all the pain you've caused.

Promise my next post will be much more uplifting! My nephew got a hedgehog for Christmas and I can't wait to post pics!


  1. prayers for you and your family.

    on a lighter note... i love hedgehogs... we used to have one and it was so sweet!

  2. Gosh I am so sorry for the whole mess of things. I can't even imagine.

    Have I told you that I love your new look? Tres chic.

  3. That sucks! I am sorry to hear about that. I lived through +/- 10 years of my parents being separated off and on. I just felt so sick, sad and mad all the time. By the grace of God, they finally worked things out, though.But since we're a "conservative" Southern family no one ever talked about it so we just stewed on it all that time. At least you and your sister got to let it out! Hang in there. I hope it gets better.

  4. Best wishes for a happier 2009!! :-)

  5. Wendy, that just sucks. I wish there were words to make you feel better and the only one I can think of is SUCKS! I hope things get easier in the New Year. I am looking forward to dinner soon. xoxo

  6. So sorry! Things like this are so hard! Next Christmas will be better. . .

  7. My parents divorced when I was 13, I am now 35 and it still breaks my heart. I long for them to be together, even now. Good for you to let off that anger! It's good for the soul. Just keep praying and stay close to your sibling(s). They are the greatest link to your past and the ones most likely to stand beside you in the future. Good Luck!

  8. I never had a sister but I have two 20-something daughters, and I know that every once in awhile they have to have a big blowup and then things are fine. So sorry that your family is going through a rough time.

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!
