February Made Me Shiver

I'm a bit quiet this week, thus the lack of posts. It's not that my mind isn't filled with dreams of paint swatches and remodeling, to-do lists and plans. I'm just not in a motivated mood and February isn't making me get up and go.

February is always a bit of a lengthy, slow month to me. It's the last step in the bridge towards spring and most often I want to jump over it and get on with things. Valentine's day comes mid-month, filled with hearts and love, but is quickly forgotten as fast as the chocolates can be devoured.

February is kinda like a Tuesday. Tuesdays are probably my least favorite day of the work week. Not the first day, not the middle, not the next to the last or the last work day. Just Tuesday. Tuesday used to be the worse night of television as well, but at least now it has Glee.

I'm ready to get outside, sit by the sidelines at soccer practice and check my flowers for new buds. Ready to open the windows and let the cool air in and drive home from work with the sun still high in the sky.

I know I shouldn't rush time along but should enjoy every second I'm given. So, I'm trying to do that by living in the moment and being appreciative for February.

So I've gathered some facts about February, to help remember why I should like this month and what makes it special:
  • February Holidays include Groundhog's Day, Valentine's Day and President's Day. (Probably never heard those three things mentioned in a sentence together have you?)
  • It's the shortest month of the year. (Maybe that's why it's so forgettable)
  • February is Black History Month
  • February 21st is Love Your Pet Day
  • The SuperBowl and the Oscars typically occur in February.
  • St Valentines Day was originally thought to be the day on which birds chose their mates


  1. February is a weird month! BUT, January was so long to me, so I kind of looked forward to turning the calendar over. :)

  2. I agree. It is the shortest month but yet it feels like the longest. We have had some cold weather her in the triangle, but I sure am enjoying the weather this week.

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!
