Au Natural

This weekend I will
wear very little makeup
keep my hair in braids
and live in my bathing suit.
Kinda like I did last weekend.

But nobody looks at me anyway when I have that little cutie beside me.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend! Be safe!


  1. Pretty much every day for me is no make-up, hair in a ponytail. The bathing suit, not so much. :)

    Love it! Perfect post! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. feels so good to be makeup free and just ENJOY! Have a great one!

  3. I am usually the type of woman who would rather die than go in public without a stitch of make-up, but there's just something about summertime, a tan, being totally fresh faced. Ok, ok, maybe a little mascara ;)

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend Love!

  4. ahhh! you both look super cute!

  5. If I looked that good, I wouldn't ever wear much makeup!

    Just found your blog...looking forward to reading more.

    Hope you had a great 4th!

  6. Love your idea of a perfect weekend! And also love your photographs of the farmer's market -- gorgeous and inspiring.

  7. Just found your blog. I'm a 36 year old mom to an only child, a 2 year old boy. My hubby is not a golf instructor, but he is definitely addicted to the game and would love to be a golf pro when he "retires". :)

    Loved reading through your blog!

  8. I'm the same way...I actually debated showering yesterday as we were going to the pool later...but I did b/c we went to breakfast first!
    Hope you enjoyed your laid back weekend!

  9. I could live like that everyday!

  10. Back to basics - it's a good thing! Beautiful photograph too

  11. Love the braids! I have never mastered the art of braiding my own hair :)

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

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!

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'…
