A Slam-Dunk Sports Party

Walker is obsessed with just about all sports, so when it came time to pick a theme for his fifth birthday party, any and all sports was the perfect idea!

I rented a local park this past Saturday for Walker's sports party and it was a beautiful day with perfect temperatures for playing outside! Walker invited all of his friends from school along with his neighborhood buddies and they played baseball, basketball, climbed on the playground and tore open a basketball-shaped pinata that was filled with sports-shaped candy with a golf club!

Guests received orange paper bags filled with their pinata loot along with sports-shaped eggs filled with candy. We served sports drinks and sports-themed water, along with chips, ice cream and yummy cake that I spent several nights last week making. And let's not forget the fabulous ball-shaped cake-pops made by the wonderful Baker's Cakes!

I can't believe my little guy is five!
The time truly does fly by, but it has been a blast and we've had a ball!

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'…
