The Princess and the Tea

The Princess and the Tea

A wee bit overdue, but hey, who cares?  Ha! Better late than never. Once upon a time there was a little girl named Georgia.   Just yesterday she was a tiny baby and now she was turning three.  So, it was time to celebrate this little girl.  And she requested a Princess Tea Party with […]

Longing for Sweet Summer Days

Longing for Sweet Summer Days

While I was going through my photos today, I stumbled across an album from summer.  We have been trapped inside with the melting snow and these pictures were a welcome sight.  Since I got so off track with blogging last summer, I figured I’d show them now! The kids set up a lemonade stand.  How […]

A Snow Day Surprise

A Snow Day Surprise

That’s right! We’ve got another little squirt on the way! David and I are so excited, and G kind of gets it, but B….he is just over the moon. It’s all he can talk about. He is hoping for a brother (because “you can tackle a brother”….um, yikes!) but says he’d be happy with another […]

A Lilly Pulitzer party for our little cupcake

A Lilly Pulitzer party for our little cupcake

Gigi loves cupcakes. Her eyes light up when she sees one and she talks about them constantly. Naturally, we decided to use “cupcakes” as the theme for her 2nd birthday party. And just because I kept falling in love with every Lilly themed straw and cupcake topper I saw, I decided to decorate with Lilly […]

My sweet boy.

My sweet boy.

Everyone has a moment, right in the middle of a crazy, busy day, when their child stops them in their tracks and forces them to drink life in. This was mine.  I walked outside to this image and ran to grab my camera.  Luckily he was in the exact same spot and I caught the […]

Vintage Soda Crates Storage, Beach Music, and a Scare

Vintage Soda Crates Storage, Beach Music, and a Scare

What a week this has been! We had such a fun weekend.  We spent Saturday at our friends’ annual pool party and on Sunday went to see “Band of Oz” playing at Davidson’s Concert on the Green.  It was HOT.  Like the intolerable kind of hot.  But our kids danced and we had quality family time, so it was all worth it.  […]

Chandelier Flowers and Pretty Wine

Chandelier Flowers and Pretty Wine

On Saturday mornings, we have been running up to the Farmer’s Market in Davidson. If you have not been, you definitely need to try it out. I love to get flowers from there-they’re a great price and absolutely gorgeous. They stay fresh all week (they start to wilt just in time for me to get […]

Ahoy! A Coastal Bathroom DIY

Ahoy! A Coastal Bathroom DIY

There comes a time that you have to say to yourself, “finish that project already!” For me, that time was last week. That project was decorating the kids’ bathroom. And yes, friends, it is DONE. DONE. DONE.  I can’t say it enough times. So the room started out looking like this. I can’t find any […]

Warm days, Mason Jars, and Slip and Slides

Warm days, Mason Jars, and Slip and Slides

We’re settling into summer mode quite well over here.  The past week has been so flipping hot that we have been going through water bottles like crazy.  I finally went out and bought another water dispenser (I broke my others.)  I found it at Target….isn’t it adorable?  With the chalkboard label and bulky size, it was […]

Our Charming Hilton Head Vacation

Our Charming Hilton Head Vacation

Today, I finally sat and had a moment to edit our vacation photos.   I took 1,056 pictures.  That’s insane…even for me.  But, it was worth it.  I caught some very beautiful moments for our family. Little Gigi was so uncertain about the beach at first.  The sand bothered her and she cried immediately.  We let her go […]
