Passing The Remote

My husband has waited four years to be able to sit with the little man and watch sports. When our son was two, he would sit for about 10 seconds, then move on to something else. Hubs would look at me, defeated and nervous that we had brought a man into this world that may not like sports. I assured him that the day would come when they could sit together and marvel at the wonders of Tiger's swing, Brady's arm and Kobe's jumpshot.

That day has finally come and as they watched Monday Night Football together last night, I could see the pride in hub's face. The little man wanted to pull for the "red team" because that's his current favorite color, and I convinced him that Tom Brady was all that (because he is). The two sat in the chair closest to the TV, locked in a football trance, while hubs explained the game of football.

And so, the little guy that never wanted to leave his mommie's side has begun his transition to manhood. Afternoons are now filled with football toss and soccer and evenings are filled with ESPN and The Golf Channel.

The remote has been passed.


P.S: I also realize that this may end my quest for creating a TarHeel, but I will continue to fight that blue devil down the road and the influence he has over hubs and my son.


  1. Adorable! My husband and I are both major football fans hoping our little guy ends up being one too :o)

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!
