Miss Me?

So, we celebrated Walker's first week of summer vacation at the beach last week with my in-laws and family and it was fabulous! I can actually say for the first time in a long time I didn't want to come back to work!

But I'll focus on a couple of things to keep my spirits up!

1 - I didn't gain any weight while on vacation! And I actually lost a lb! That never happens! I guess it comes from all that beach and pool time with Walker!
2 - I've got a pretty good tan, didn't get burned and used sunscreen every day, so I did it the healthy way.
3 - Summer is almost here and our neighborhood pool is open! Yeah!

Happy Monday all! You'll be seeing more from me this week, but gotta catch up on home and work first!


  1. that's a great action shot! so cute :) wow, a lb down on vacay, go you! :) hope the transition back to work is an easy one!

  2. Wendy,
    I wanted to introduce myself to you. My name is Leigh Hines. I just found your adorable blog. Love your blog headers. I am a Raleigh blogger without a "technical bone in my body" but what caught my eye was your son and golfing. My son is obsessed, but he hasn't had lessons. His dad doesn't golf so we aren't sure where the obsession is coming from. I'll be following you now.


  3. What a great way to start off Walker's summer vacation!

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 Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

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'…
