Back from the Beach

We had a wonderful Memorial weekend at the beach visiting my in-laws, family and friends. I packed up the car last Wednesday along with my nephew and Walker and arrived at the beach around 9:30. Mike joined us Friday and we all came home yesterday, tanned and relaxed!

The boys had a wonderful time playing together in the pool and the ocean.It was the first vacation I've had since Walker was born that I actually had a little time to just sit and read. It was nice, yet strange at the same time. I'm so used to him needing me right by his side in the pool, but he is such a fish now, he's not even afraid of the deep end. But of course, that doesn't keep us out of the pool - I love the pool and spent many hours in it when I was a child on vacation - no reason to stop now!

Memorial weekend is when there are always lots of people at the beach - friends and family - and several people have birthdays the same week, so we always have a big birthday cake and celebrate together. Of course, we ate some wonderful seafood, I did a little shopping for a wedding I'm directing in two weeks and I got a little bit of sun on my white white self!

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'…
