Summer Funk

Today I didn't feel like getting out of bed, actually have been feeling that way for a couple of weeks now. Can't quite understand what's getting to me, but I've been in a bad mood for about a month. Maybe I'm stressed about Walker starting kindergarten and I'm suppressing my feelings and they are just taking me over inside, maybe it's because it's so friggin hot I can't even walk outside without sweating or even enjoy an evening at the pool.

I'll call it the summer funk, and it's taken me over. Maybe it's because summer is almost over and although I can't wait for the crisp fall evenings, Halloween and warm clothes, I still feel a little sad that this is the last summer for my little guy as a pre-schooler.

He has only four days left of preschool. The last five years have been leading up to this day, and what seemed so far away is now here and I'm really nervous. Thing is, I'm not even sure why I'm so nervous. Maybe it's because of the unknown, the new schedule, the new everything. Some of it is because I'm nervous about him making new friends and I hope his classmates will like him. I'm sure they will, he's a pretty cool little dude. He's funny, outgoing and he is so excited about starting kindergarten he can't stand it.

The heat is certainly getting to me. We spent the entire weekend indoors and I thought I was going to go insane cooped up like that. I wanted to be at the pool, but it was a sauna and even the water was hot - like getting in a warm bath. The grass in the front yard has fried to a crispy brown and leaves are falling off the Poplar in the front yard like it's fall already. My flowers and herbs are all droopy and sad and we all sit and wait for some rain and cooler temperatures to relieve us.

To top it all off, now I've got a fun summer cold. Bleh.


  1. Im right there with you on the crummy feeling!!! AND the cold! We all have it at our house!!!

  2. Summer colds are the worst. I feel your pain on the summer funk. Summer's just go by entirely too fast now!

  3. Lets all remember how FORTUNATE we are! Good job,
    good husband and a beautiful, loving, healthy and very smart son,who because of you both will have a wonderful and exciting life ahead.
    Love to all, XO A

  4. Oh honey! I hope you feel better. Your baby will love school. And his new classmates will love him. Don't worry about a thing. All's well with the world - even though it's hot as hades. xoxo

  5. Soon the winds of life will blow you out of the doldrums, try to find some peace as you float along in your journey. Of course you're anxious about Walker's new beginning but have faith that you've done a good job so far and he's prepared!

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!
