Birthday Time

Birthday time is here again, but I'm not going to post today about what I got or what I did (I'll save that for another day) because I also share my birthday with my grandaddy and it's his special day too.

My grandaddy and I have always celebrated our birthdays together, and this year will be no different. I have pictures from every birthday of the two of us standing behind our cake (or cakes) and I've never had a problem sharing my birthday. My mom told her labor doctors if they could hold me off until the 16th, I would be born on the same day as her father. My actual time of birth is 12:01 am.

My grandaddy is the hardest working, most dedicated, Christian man I know. He will be 79 this year and still drives a school bus every morning during the school year, a job he took after he retired because he wanted something to do. He still plants a garden every year, and can cook some great green beans! He's the church choir director, a deacon, takes loving care of my grandmother and has been a rock for our family.

Happy birthday grandaddy! I love you!

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!
