My Little Reader

It's amazing watching a child develop from an infant to an almost kindergartner.

It's crazy to think I haven't always known how to read, because it comes so easily now. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to want to read, but not quite be there.

Walker has always loved books, but he's starting to take a true interest in reading, and I hope it lasts. I was in my room the other day straightening up and it got really quiet in his room. I peaked in and there he was surrounded by his "I Can Read" books, flipping through the pages. I sneaked a couple of shots of him because he was so focused.

If you've never seen these books, they are great for children. I guess they are this generation's version of Golden Books (remember those?) which are actually starting to pop up on shelves again. The "I Can Read" books feature popular characters, colorful pictures and different levels for children depending on their reading abilities. We have tons of them and they make great children's gifts, little surprise treats for your children and great prizes for kids! I usually find them at Target, Walmart and! Check them out for yourself!

(And no, I wasn't paid to write this)


  1. It's crazy that I can actually remember being kindergartner, brow furrowed over a book, sitting at the dining table swearing on my life that reading was impossible and I would never get it. It just wasn't for me. Haha! And now I'm getting my PhD. Who woulda thought ;)

    Hope you're having a great week Love!

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!
