Five From Forty

Today is my 35th birthday! I woke up with a yucky headache, hoping that wasn't a preview of what my later thirties have in store for me. Before 8:00 the phone rang several times, my husband (already at work), my mom and my dad wishing me a happy day.

Walker woke up singing happy birthday to me and we celebrated last night by baking a cake, so naturally we both had to have it for breakfast. He ran into preschool this morning telling his teachers and friends it was my birthday so I got wonderful wishes from them all.

My Facebook page and Twitter account filled up with wonderful wishes from friends and family. (I think one of the best reasons to use Facebook is you never miss a friend's birthday)

My creative agency left me a present in my office chair. A really cool stack of colorful paper, some embossing stencils and a little embossing tool. They know me so well. I spent time this morning playing with it at my desk instead of diving into work. It's OK, it's my birthday.

My co-workers took me to lunch. I got to pick the spot - Neomondes - one of my faves. The hummus was a little bitter today, but the conversation was fabulous. We laughed and gossiped and didn't want to come back to work. I had to call my husband to remember Phil Ford's name (assistant basketball coach at UNC). With three UNC fans, I had to call a Duke fan for that. We couldn't even figure it out using two iPhones and one Blackberry (and yes, the iPhones had service).

Headed to a Durham Bulls baseball game tonight with my family. Hubs gave me an Anthropologie candle and Converse sneakers. We're going to my fave restaurant tomorrow night for dinner too.

So far, 35 ain't so bad.

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!



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!


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.
