37 Years

I don't know how to put this, but I'm kind of a big deal. Will Ferrell and I share the same birthday.

And my grandaddy Alvin too. We share the same birthday. And like 6 people in my home church.

So, maybe I'm not really a big deal.

Anywho, this year, Mike asked what I wanted for my birthday and although there is a Dooney and Bourke purse I'm dying to have, I opted for an experience we could both enjoy and something we'd been talking about doing for a while.

A couple's portrait.

No, not really. I wanted him to take me to the Inn at Fearrington in Pittsboro, NC for a night.

The couple's portrait in our room was a bonus. (More on the Inn at Fearrington in another post)

We have very few pictures together since I'm always the one behind the camera and he refuses to learn how to use the darn thing, so I managed to use the self-timer for like the second time ever and capture some shots of us right before dinner Saturday night.

So unlike that adorable purse with the great hardware and style that would go with almost everything in my closet, that will soil and stain, rip and grow old, I have these images, that will remain forever. 

Best. Birthday. Ever.

Thanks for the patience you!


  1. Happy belated Birthday!! Ya'll are a beautiful couple!

  2. What a smart and beautiful girl you chose to capture a moment in time vs a D&B and you will never regret it!

  3. Yay yay yay - happy birthday, Wendy! Can't wait to hear more about your getaway.

  4. Great Pictures! You guys look so happy!

  5. Ha! That couple's photo kills me! I've been following your Pinterest boards for awhile (couldn't resist after I pinned some of your southern prints), but only just discovered you have a blog as well. Awesome!

  6. Cute photos! You can see the joy!

    I'm kind of a big deal, too -- I share the same birthday as George Strait and Tina Fey!
    Looking forward to reading more...blessings! :)

  8. Happiest of birthdays! We spent our wedding night at Fearrington and also celebrated our 5th anniversary there, so it is very special to us. Love everything about it! Can't wait to read more about your visit!

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!

Last Minute Gift Idea

If you still haven't purchased that teacher gift, the present for your mother-in-law, sister-in-law, niece, best friend...heck buy one for yourself...

Let me suggest my brand new digital print! 

For this week only - if you buy one print, you get a free Kiss My Grits digital print! Digital prints are fast - easy and affordable. You buy, I send you the print via e-mail, you print and frame and that's all there is to it! Or, for a long-distance friend, you can even forward the digital file directly to them for printing! (But please only do it once per purchased copy)...

This one is even more fabulous because it's black and white - and goes with anything and everything!

Check this one out - along with many more prints in my shop here!And head on over to Erin and Nina's blogs to enter to win a fun giveaway from my shop as well!

In Walker's Words

"Mom, how old are you? I can't ever remember  because you look 17..."
How I love this child...
