I'm Back!

I think that was probably the longest vacation I've ever taken, and my how it flew by. It was an extremely relaxing week and a half at the beach with family. We didn’t do anything too exciting, just played on the beach and at the pool, did a little shopping, ate good food, saw Inception with Mike and loved it, and went fishing and crabbing...

...played Wii, Nintendo, on the iPod, watched Shark Week on the Discovery Channel - what would kids today do without their electronics? Good thing is that they did spend a lot of time outside and not doing this too much...

Now it’s life back in the fast lane. I’m already at headquarters for an overnight stay, headed back home again tomorrow.

I kept up with my fellow bloggers while I was away, so jealous to hear the wonderful stories about Blogher in NYC. I hope I can make it next year!

I think Walker finally has everything he needs to start kindergarten. Backpack, check, lunchbag, check, uniform for Thursdays, check, new shoes, check. It’s been fun spending so much time with him over the last couple of weeks since he’s out of preschool now. He is so excited about kindergarten and can’t wait to get started! I’m kinda ready to get on with it as well, so we can get a new routine down.

Thanks for all of the wonderful replies to my post on happy pills. I hope to continue to talk about this topic on my blog to promote discussion about the issues I face, and many of you face as well, regarding anxiety and depression. To those negative comments that don’t believe it’s real, I just say I hope you never have to deal with it yourself or watch a loved one fight through it. It’s real and it is some much more than just being sad. It is debilitating - can’t get out of bed in the morning, feel like a big black hole inside you debilitating - and having everything and every happiness in the world can’t make it better.

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!
