Waiting for opening day. No floaties this year,
not for a big boy of four. Jumping, swimming, laughing, splashing. The smell of chlorine in the air. Summer is coming.


  1. Fun! The pool looks beautiful.

    I'm a swim instructor and unfortunately, the smell of chlorine just seems to surround me at all times. It used to get me excited for summer, now I just think of it as "my fragrance." It's honestly never out of my hair! ha ha!

    Opening day for our outdoor pool at the Y will be at the end of this month but at times it's still way too cold...brrrr... I imagine it's warmer sooner where you are.


  2. We are anxiously waiting at our house two. I have two swimmers and one to go. And this is the year... he's 3 and he's already been practicing in the tub. As God is my witness next year at this time I will be blogging about how happy I am that I can sit and read a book and sip a drink instead of spending every single minute in the pool catching a flying child. Enjoy your first chair-sittin' summer you lucky girl!

  3. that should be waiting too... (geesh...I did learnt sumppin in college)

  4. I remember those days - so excited for the summer months :)

  5. There is an outdoor pool just down the street from our house, and we are so anxious for Summer to hurry up and get here so we can take advantage of it!

  6. Great post...I would be happy if the Sun would just make itself known here...:)

  7. We are just as excited about summer coming. My twins are four too! I think this might be the best summer ever. Have a fabulous Mother's day!
    xxxxx me

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!
