I'm not a big fan of flying, but the more I do it, the better it gets. Hubs is even more nervous about it, hence we've NEVER been anywhere that we can't drive. I'm hoping for our tenth anniversary in two years I'll be able to convince him to jump on a plane to some island somewhere with me. I'll probably have to drug him first.

On my flight last week to Madison, there was a cute little girl in front of me that had already flown three times in her life and on the way back, a six-month old baby that had already flown four times! Wow - those kids are already racking up the frequent flier points!

I feel so sorry for the parents of kids on planes because you can tell they are uptight about their kids throwing a fit and upsetting everyone on the plane. When this little cutie below started crying, I played peek-a-boo with her and made her paper airplanes out of my magazine reply cards and it got her smiling pretty quick. She liked my camera too.



  1. That is so sweet of you to do! I think it's so easy to judge those parents when it's not your child screaming :)

  2. I always feel so sorry for parents flying with kids; they usually do look so embarrassed about possibly imposing on others, when the rest of us do realize that keeping kids occupied and happy on flights is the herding cats type of difficult.

    Good luck convincing your husband on the flying! I love it, but everything about travel definitely gets easier the more you do it.

  3. What a cutie! That was nice of you.

  4. Due to a health issue I can not fly.
    I have gone to Alaska and to Europe though. I hasn't held me back. I have taken a train and then a boat.

    What a cute little one.

  5. Great pictures! I didn't like flying at first either, but I have grown to love it!!! Good luck on your island trip,,,,can't beat 'em...

  6. Great pics. I have flown once. It was ok but I won't do it often.

  7. We took our little man on his first plane ride when he was 10 weeks old and wow were the dirty looks we got frightening. He slept the whole way but people still stared us down. Ah ha

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!
