Birthday Month!!

Yeah, it's my birthday month again! I love birthdays and this year I'm going to be 35!!! A couple of months ago I was feeling stressed about turning 35, but the closer I get to it, the more OK with it I seem to be. It just seems like a milestone birthday or something to me - like everything goes downhill from there....but I'm hoping that's not true!

So, of course, I had to put together a wish list of things I'd love to receive for my birthday. Someone please tell my husband to read my blog!!!

First up, the print that inspired my plan for my downstairs family room.

Chuck Taylors in Blue (Size 9 by the way)

The Capri Blue jar candle from Anthropologie. Have you ever smelled these things? If you've ever been in an Anthropologie store you surely have. They are heavenly.

This fabulous printer to print items in my Etsy shop and invitations, special order requests I'm starting to get from friends and family!

So what about you other Cancers out there? What's on your list? Or for those with birthdays coming up in August and September, do you already have your list started?


  1. I have a March birthday but I have a list on That way when Christmas or Mother's Day or my birthday roll around, I will remember what it is I want. Fabulous. Much.

  2. I am in love with that print and am now very curious to see how your family room came out! What a great inspiration!

  3. Happy early Birthday! The older I get the older I want to make myself, I keep thinking I'm a year older than I really am... it's weird (I'm 33) but I love my older self.

    I also love that print also and the shoes too. I'd love to see a pic of your finished room.

  4. hey there - those are some awesome gifts - so did you get all of them?? I love that print :)

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…

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'…

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!
