Whirlwind Weekend

Walker and I sped off to the beach this weekend for a quick trip to see my in-laws, niece and niece's fiance! Yes, we have a wedding to plan - and I'm so excited! They are getting married at the beach in the fall (which gives me plenty of time to get skinny, and motivation to do so). And I think it will even give me enough time to find something to wear.

It was a quick trip, but relaxing all the same. My sister-in-law's father-in-law died Saturday morning and my niece had to leave earlier than expected. But we did pick a location, which is very exciting.

Walker missed his daddy, couldn't wait to get back home to watch football with him, but he did get in some target practice with the BB gun Pappa gave him. We start 'em young down here in the south.

We got home around 4:00 this afternoon. Mike and I unpacked the car and I headed to the mall. The boys were good to go with NFL on the tube, and I needed some retail therapy - specifically, shoes. I think just about everything at the mall was on sale, except the pair of shoes I purchased. I could seriously spend hours in Nordstrom. They kicked me out when the doors closed at 6:00. And I still smell good from all the perfume samples I tried. Givenchy Dahlia Noir was my fave, in case you cared. Good Valentine's day present, yes? Someone tell Mike.

Tomorrow I'm meeting my gorgeous, fabulous, athletic neighbor to go walking at 5:00 am. Shoot me. We did it last Thursday, and I was glad I got it out of the way, but the thought of it right now at 11:00 pm on a Sunday night doesn't excite me too much. But if I'm gonna get skinny by fall (and participate in that little triathlon thingy I signed up for), it's gotta start somewhere. Preferably, not at 5:00 am in the morning, but there you are.

And off we go...have a great 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!
