Back to Happy

I had a fabulous weekend and didn't do much of anything really. Sometimes I just need a weekend of no plans and no deadlines to "get back to happy" and feel refreshed. Although I didn't have plans, I did get a lot accomplished. I managed to clean the house, fill up five yard bags of leaves and pine needles and (with the help of hubs) did laundry.

Valentine's day was low key and laidback. Hubs surprised me with chocolate and a teddy bear from Godiva that really made me smile. In 11 years together, we've never done the chocolate thing for Valentine's, so it was fun! I bought him a Cheesecake Factory cheesecake, knowing exactly how to get to his heart. I made the little guy a special heart breakfast (hubs had to work) and we visited his favorite store, Target, Saturday morning and he spent all of his "valentine money" on a new Wii game.

We watched the race yesterday and were sad Jr. didn't finish better and that the race was washed out. I did manage to get the little guy to call his papa and tell him "boogity, boogity, boogity boys, let's go racing!" Hee hee...

Welcome to Monday y'all...


  1. Ooh, if I had a Wii, I think I would have spent all my money on a new game too, ha!

  2. We watched the race as well! We were sad to see it called for rain! We watched with a group of friends...we all picked these teams...and my husband's team had the best average so he won a t-shirt. It's was Dale Jr. :)

  3. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! Your little boy is so cute!

  4. I'm not a NASCAR person, but I know a lot of people were really happy that yesterday finally arrived! It sounds like you had a perfect day with your boy(s)! Happy Monday!!!

  5. Sounds like the perfect the toast with heart shaped egg..very clever

  6. Sounds like a great way to spend a weekend. Love the header artwork!

  7. I love the toast - what a cute idea. :)
    Our family loves Jr. too! And my little one has always yelled the "boogity, boogity...." line at the start of the race. It's too cute when they get so excited!

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'…
