We had a great weekend. Although it rained a lot, the temperatures finally warmed up a bit so we could spend some time outside.

Mike works a lot on the weekends (cause that's when people like to play golf) so my little guy and I often venture out on Saturdays if we don't have plans. I try to keep it fun and look for local things to do. We headed to the flea market in Raleigh this past Saturday. I love looking at all of the old treasures and the little man likes it because he can get lots of toys for only five bucks. He actually said this weekend, "this place is better than Target mommie!"

I'll share more pics from our weekend later, but for now, here's one I snapped at the market (tons of dogs there). Loved this guy - his name was Mike and he's only two years old. Just looking at this picture makes me laugh...if we could all be this laid back...happy Monday y'all!



  1. I Love flea markets! I could $pend all day there..very dangerous...

    You really captured that dog in a great photo!

  2. Cuuuute.

    Love looking for a "diamond in the rough" at the flea market ;-)

  3. You need to come down one Saturday and meet me at the new Lego store. I haven't been yet, but if Caitlyn loves Legos this much in September I think we'll have her birthday party there.

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 Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

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'…
