July Already?

We're halfway through the year, halfway to Christmas if you think about it. July is when summer truly kicks in, and also my birthday month. It's the one month not touched by school (if you on a traditional calendar) and growing up July was truly summer to me. My birthday, the 16th of July, was the high point of the year, everything else rolled downhill into back-to-school shopping, chilly fall nights, Halloween, Thanksgiving, then Christmas.

We spent last week at the beach, and I unplugged, as I often do when I'm on vacay, so I missed some blog posts and some Twitter happenings, but I'll be plugged back in today.


But I'm glad to be back, into a routine, into my own bed and into the swing of things. Although this was a pretty great day...



So up this week - it's my birthday (I think I said this already, did I? It's birthday week actually.), boss is in town at work, photo session for my little guy with one of my fave local photographers and sweet friend and I'm sure I'm forgetting something...

Summer is flying by and so are the days. Saturday I'll be 36, it's my birthday, if you didn't know. I'm asking hubs for tickets to Adele. Rather, I'll be using our check card to purchase them on behalf of my birthday on the 22nd when they go on sale and tell him they are my birthday present. A girl's gotta take things into her own hands once in a while.

Stay tuned...

  1. You are too funny! But you are right, some times we gotta take things into our own hands... including B-day presents. :) Happy Birthday 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!
