A Snowy Oscars

The saga of no TV continues, and I think if the Direct TV guys don't show up today, I'll have to send hubs to a hotel.

After church yesterday, he went on a mission to find some rabbit ears so I could watch the Oscars last night. He finally found some at the third store he visited. So I hooked them up to the small TV in the kitchen last night and got pretty good reception. Deciding it would be much more comfortable to lay in my comfy bed and watch, I moved the ears upstairs, and the reception wasn't quite as good, but at least I had somewhat of a picture.

When awards season comes around, my BFF and I always watch the shows together pratically on the phone every other minute. Before we found the rabbit ears, I had to call her and break the news that I may not be watching the Oscars. Her response, "Girl, you better get that fixed or I'm breaking up with you." Then she said, "I guess we can hook up our web cam and stream us watching the Oscars and you can watch us watching." huh?

Luckily, I had the ears, and we were able to compare notes during the show. I told her I just had to pretend the Oscars were being held in the snow this year. To sum up my thoughts: Loved Hugh Jackman, no one blew me away as far as attire and thought Kate Winslet's speech was great. Hubs forgets this ritual each year and said, "Who the heck keeps calling here...I told him to roll over and go back to sleep."


  1. I agree, no one blew me away either! We were up way too late to see Slumdog win practically everything! That number with Hugh and Beyonce was amazing, though!

  2. I'm glad you were able to watch it. Bunny ears aren't THAT bad...

  3. What a fun ritual! :) I'm sorry about your TV - such a pain!

  4. That's a really sweet husband! Love the blog!

  5. Love your header. Too cute!

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!

A Wreath-Making Party

My fabulous friend Laura is probably the most creative person I know. So when she says she's going to throw a wreath party, you know it's going to be good.

To entice moms to volunteer for our upcoming school fundraiser and show them how cool it is to work with the fundraising committee, several moms got together and threw a wreath-making party. We invited school moms to come to a local clubhouse, bring a bag of fresh greenery from their yard and learn how to make a wreath. And who knew it would be so easy to make a gorgeous wreath for next-to-nothing (I'm talking the kind of wreath you pay $75+ for in the stores and nurserys)...

The clubhouse didn't have much to work with, so we got creative and wrapped the bookcase filled with trophies - and we went tacky on this in case anyone thought we were serious...but the centerpiece was the best. Laura found it at Anthropologie I think and bought it right off of the display...

We also had a cute little hot cocoa bar available …

Christmas Card 2012 (Or The Things I Make My Family Do)

Walker's now at the age he doesn't like mommy taking pictures of him. He finds mommy "annoying" at those times.

Gone are the days I can dress my little guy in a cute red and green outfit, with cute little green trees on his pants and have him pose with Christmas ornaments and Santa Claus.

So for this year's Christmas card, I needed to get creative.

So I trekked on over to Michaels and picked up some fake snow and a couple of styrofoam balls and decided I'd let Walker have a snowball fight with me and his dad and hope I could get some good pics out of it.

He was down with my idea.

Of course, we got a lot of good outtakes on this one...and it was funny because I had him all dressed up for winter, but it was actually pretty warm out (yep bare feet - we keep it real).

But the winner and my fave had daddy sprinkling fake snow over Walker's head while he threw "snowballs" at me.  I've gotten several perplexed e-mails and calls asking me where in…
