Walker's Wardrobe

I'm afraid I've created a monster.

Walker has become so picky about his attire these days. This weekend we had an engagement party to attend and children were invited. Walker had already decided in his head he was going to wear his khaki shorts and plaid long-sleeve shirt. Both of which were dirty because he'd just worn them a few days before.

It was a melt-down of all melt-downs because I made him wear a navy t-shirt with plaid shorts. You would have thought it was the end of the world. There were tears upon tears and pouting and more tears...Then I refused to allow him to wear his flat hat and sunglasses (my mother-in-law would have died) and that produced another round of tears.

I said, "Walker, a seven-year-old shouldn't care this much about what he's wearing."

He said, "But I do care what I'm wearing mom."

Honestly, I was secretly giddy inside, but he's gotta learn to fall in love with another outfit to have a back-up if he's going to be this picky. 

He's also picked up a trend from the older boys at school - tall, black socks. And I'm hoping this trend will pass. Evidently these are referred to as "bro socks" and they absolutely have to be Nike brand - the Target brand will not do - and he wears them with his red Vans. I seriously thought I'd raise a child with a bit more of a preppy style. I'm hoping this is just a phase.


  1. Black socks and red vans?? Ha! That's so cute!

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!
