Scent of a Magazine

We headed to my hometown for mother's day this year and hung out with the fam. The little man loves spending time with his cousins and when they aren't fighting, they can be pretty cute together.

My sister and I bought my mom a Pandora bracelet for mother's day, with a giraffe, apple and VW bug charm. She loved it. Now I want one - I think they are so neat.

Hubs came through with a bottle of Flowerbomb parfume. I was looking at one of my many magazines a couple of weeks ago and loved the way it smelled. He ripped the page out of the mag and literally walked into Nordstrom holding it and said, "I want this." I'm not typically much of a perfume girl because most of the stuff gives me a headache, but I love this scent.

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!

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'…
