We had homecoming at my childhood church this past Sunday and I always look forward to that day each year. I always get to see a lot of old friends and get to meet new little ones.

But what happens when you ask a bunch of southern ladies to bring a covered dish for lunch after church homecoming services? A lot of butter, carbs, sugar and fried stuff - it's great. If you've never been to a southern church covered dish affair, you're missing out. Here are some of the typical dishes you'll find:


And then there's the infamous dessert table. My little guy wanted to start here first.


And so, I shall be working out twice as much this week...


  1. This post just made me really hungry and nostalgic for my small town in NC!
    Mmmm. coconut cake.

  2. That table looks very familiar..... yum !

  3. Wow!!! That dessert table is pretty impressive...

  4. This looks fabulous! Your blog is wonderful, excited to be following! Xo

  5. OH so very true.

    I am a northerner who married a big time southerner. I swear I gain 10 pounds...bad complexion everytime we go to his "home". But, how do all these southern women look so good and beautiful!

    The green beans in the south are double the calories of a Big Mac with all that grease and bacon..but it is good!

    I love the south!

  6. headed over to the fridge now...even thought nothing in there looks as yummy as what you just showed us! yummy!! = )

  7. That looks delicious!

    Popping in from the MBC! Now following your blog...

  8. Lord have mercy, I gained 5 pounds just looking at all that delicious food. I'd take one of everything and go back for thirds.

  9. stopping bye from SITS. I just got immediately hungry after looking at your picture. Now i feel as though i am starved! I am not from the south...but i, like most ppl recognize that southern cooking is the best!

  10. Thanksgiving so early this year?
    Wow! That is a spread!

    I always have the worse time at the yummy table. Too much too choose from :)

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!
