Life in a Small Town

We headed to my hometown this weekend for my nephew's birthday party. The weather was just perfect, so we couldn't stay inside! So,what do you do in a small, southern town, when the weather is beautiful outside and you're a little kid?

You get your great-grandaddy to ride you around on the tractor... make shadow animals on the grass... fly a kite...

...and you enjoy the sun with your cousins while you eat lollipops!


  1. Tractor rides were very popular in my family too. I used to love the way my feet felt when I got off.

  2. awww-how fun! growing up in a VERY small town I can appreciate these things :)

  3. You know what I love the most? The most adorable sweater vest in your picture!! So cute! Glad you had a nice weekend :)

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!
