A Weekend in Washington!

So Mike and Walker met me last Thursday in Washington for a fun weekend of site-seeing and doing the tourist thing. Walker has been wanting to go to the Smithsonian Museum of National History since he saw Night at the Museum and we've been on every page of the Smithsonian website learning about it.


We hit all the major spots, including the Air and Space Museum, Museum of Natural History, Museum of American History (where you can see Dorothy's actual shoes from the Wizard of Oz - which was much more exciting to me than anyone else in my family.)


Hanging out with the butterflies in the bug area:


Then some down-time to relax and eat ice cream!


We bought tickets for the double-decker bus tour through the city (which is one of the best ways to see a city - works especially wonderfully when touring London). Walker loved riding high above everyone else and Mike and I enjoyed it as well. We stopped at the Lincoln Memorial and Walker grabbed this pic of us.


Swung by the white house to see if the President was in (he was actually in Ashville, NC while we were in DC!)


Another pic from my blooming photographer while we were waiting on the metro for the zoo (I think he's got skills but I could possibly be a bit biased):


It was a great weekend for us! But I was very happy to get home after being gone for a whole week!



  1. Hey there beautiful, these are wonderful pictures! I just love D.C., my parents live in Chevy Chase, MD, so I am fortunate that I get to go fairly often. The picture of you in front of the Lincoln memorial is perfect, what a sweet little family you have! Enjoy the weekend! xox

  2. Great pictures. I love the one of Walker swinging on the fence in front of the White House. What a fun trip for a boy his age. I know he must have been in heaven!

  3. You have a beautiful family. Cute pic of Walker with the butterfly on his head.

  4. Your hair looks amazing! And your boy is a great photographer. That last picture seriously makes me smile big!

    It looks like y'all had a great time.

  5. {Love your hair by the way...}

    But the Mr. and I were just talking about this!!
    Okay. Now I really wanna go!! :)

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!
