Diving Back In...

Yes I haven't posted in about a month. And I absolutely did not feel guilty about it. I just needed a break from the pressure to post. I don't want this blog to become something I don't enjoy because it's always been fun for me, but lately it just wasn't feeling that way. If you missed me, do let me know in the comments! I missed you guys!

But now I'm diving back in. Want to know what I've been up to lately?

Lots of work, work and work. Busy time these days, which is a good thing because the days are so much more interesting and go by very fast! I hate being behind at work and I finally feel like I'm catching up on things. Instead of working on my blog at night, I've been doing real work - ughhh. But I'm hoping that trend is headed downwards.

The wedding was this weekend!!! Our niece made a gorgeous bride! I helped out with some of the details, which is so fun for me. How in the world did we plan anything before Pinterest? I found the inspiration for the love story board, the sparkler tags and the koozies all here!

And of course I must post a pic of my cutie with the was his first wedding and the ladies were all over him.

It's my favorite time of year - I love, love, love fall. And Halloween will be here before you know it! I've got some fun projects up my sleeve for Halloween as well, and I'll definitely show you guys! My biggest challenge right now is convincing Walker that he shouldn't be the Ghost Rider for Halloween. I mean, what happened to Luke Skywalker and Pokemon?


  1. everything was perfect. i saw your hand in the details.

  2. Welcome back!


  3. We missed you! Glad you've been well.

    Your niece is just gorgeous, and of course Walker continues to be just the most handsome thing.

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'…
