Hat Season

I spent quite a few hours at the pool Saturday and although I tried to stay under an umbrella, I got a bit pink. My hair was also driving me crazy because it was all over the place. I suddenly wished for a really great hat. To my surprise, while visiting last night, I came across these wonderful new Eugenia Kim hats at Target and I want one in every style and color!

The fedoras remind me of some hats I have in my childhood bedroom at home that I took from my grandparents things when we cleaned out their house after my grandmother passed. My Grandaddy Lowery used to wear them over his combover every once in a while and fedoras always remind me of him.  

The green straw hat is very 20's inspired and the sunhat with blue trim is cruise-worthy. But I think my favorite is the grey and black bell hat - how fabulous would that look with a black bathing suit on the beach or by the pool?   

I've always been a sucker for a great hat. Just not always thrilled about having hat hair, but who cares when they are this stylish and cute? Eugenia's hats are targeted for "a quirky, left-of-center girl in her twenties or thirties with a sense of humor." Designing for Target, she imagined a hybrid of that shopper and the Midwestern soccer mom. The shared DNA? If you wear her hats, "you're having a little more fun and standing out."

I think I fit the quirky bill quite nicely and I'd say I'm pretty left-of-center as well. Even better than their cuteness - all are between $14.99 and $19.99 each and most are still available online vs. many of the designer brands at Target.

baby or a puppy; everyone
stops to coo and talk about it."

  1. Those hats are fabulous! I need a new "sunning" hat, thanks for the target tip.

  4. I'm loving the grey one too! I think I may have to make a little stop at Target on my way home ;)

  5. I saw almost all of those hats at Target yesterday {when I was supposed to be running errands for work}. I tried on the grey + black bell hat and was gonna snap a pic just for you but didn't have my camera. Very cute, though!

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'…
