Tiffany Blue Party Favors

Tiffany Blue Party Favors

Good Lord, it’s been cold outside! We have been stuck in our house. Poor little B begged so long to go outside the other evening…I finally broke down. He was allowed to play in the freezing weather as long as he wore a coat, hat, etc. The child hates to wear a hat…and this was […]

A Breakfast at Tiffany’s Inspired First Birthday Party…We were only missing the cat with no name.

A Breakfast at Tiffany’s Inspired First Birthday Party…We were only missing the cat with no name.

Well, it happened.  My baby girl turned one.  Doesn’t that make her technically a toddler now?  That word alone makes me want to cry.  I cannot believe how fast this year went.  I was digging through old photos of her the other day and stumbled on this photo I took of her and B on […]

Tis the Season!

Tis the Season!

I am obsessed with gold. I mean it, I can’t stop. Gold everything, everywhere. Today I wrapped some gifts-of course, they had to be adorned with gold. My favorite thing to do is buy a long strand of over-the-top tinsel garland and cut pieces. I tie the piece to the top of the gift and voila! […]

My life.

My life.

It’s been so stinking long since I have been here, I barely know where to start.  I want to give a very glamorous reason as to why I have been sparse with my writing, but I haven’t got one.  I have simply been too flipping tired. My normal day consists of being woken to up […]

Hilton Head Island…Smitten with The Low Country

Hilton Head Island…Smitten with The Low Country

We just returned from a week in Hilton Head, SC.  It was wonderful and frankly, I have never needed a vacation more.  This time was especially fun, as some of our close friends also went.  They rented a house and we stayed at The Sonesta (which I will fill y’all in on later…a definite hot spot […]

How is it already the end of June?!?

How is it already the end of June?!?

This is what happens, you see.  When you try to run a business with tiny children, time flies.  Everything else  becomes…impossible to keep up with.  One minute ago I was pregnant with Georgia and carrying Briggs around.  Now, G has one tiny tooth popping through and B is picking out his backpack for preschool and […]

What the heck is SweetHoney?

What the heck is SweetHoney?

Just when I thought I had shopping all figured out, I had a little girl. There is the endless ‘problem’ of seeing too many cute things and then trying to resist the urge to buy another ruffle-covered-butt-bubble. Pretty simple, right? Then I discovered this little Facebook page called SweetHoney.  (I use the term ‘little’ loosely.)  […]

Georgia On My Mind….

Georgia On My Mind….

Meet Georgia Sloane! My little bundle of joy arrived on Jan 5 and we are smitten. Labor was a breeze compared to B (this time, the epidural WORKED!) and I am so thankful for that. Georgia made her entrance in the world 3 weeks earlier than expected, with a head of blond hair and quite […]

When the weather is crisp…

When the weather is crisp…

For the first cool Saturday of the season, we decided there was no better way to spend it than to do some apple picking.  We packed our little squirt up and headed to Carrigan Farms in Mooresville, NC. B was so excited.  He couldn’t believe he got to take the apples off the trees and KEEP […]

Pumpkin Halloween Invitations: Spruce Up Your Party Invites

Yes, I am fully aware that it is still the beginning of September.  However, I already have my pumpkin scented candles going strong.  This is my favorite time of year!  I was going through my fall photos from last year and found these cute invitations I made for our Halloween party.  I thought I would post a quick DIY, as it is […]
