Two Champions in Two Years

I am a graduate of UNC.

My husband grew up in Durham, NC and has long family ties to Duke.

We live in Durham and about 10 miles from Chapel Hill.

We cannot watch a basketball game between UNC and Duke together. We tried it once and it didn't go so well. We are truly the definition of "A House Divided".

At our wedding, both the Carolina Ram and the Duke Devil sat on the front pews of the church.

My son is wavering between the two, currently he calls himself a fan of both teams. I know this can't last. I've tried to make him Carolina blue, but this season hasn't help my cause very much.

It's quite humorous to watch Mike on game days. He's nervous the entire day, can't eat dinner and then gets so nervous during a game, ends up changing the channel.

Today, Mike had a huge smile on his face. Last year, so did I.

Not bad to have two NCAA championships in two years in our house I suppose.


  1. Sorry...I'm with your hubs on this one! Go Duke!! Great game!

  2. I'd love to see a pic of the ram and the blue devil in church at your wedding!!!!

  3. Hilarious...just found your blog...please tell your husband he rocks...I LOVE Duke too!!! And was so excited last night. Looking forward to reading more posts...your new fan, Katie in California

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!
