All about Fall Y’all!

My favorite time of year to decorate is September through December!  Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are the best holidays.  The weather this time of year changes rapidly, almost skipping Fall entirely (my favorite season, go figure) and quickly fast forwards to a cold and dark winter (Blah!).   Because of the drops in temperature and dreary weather, you find yourself spending a lot more time indoors. This makes it even more important for the space I’m surrounded by to feel comfy, cozy, and happy. Even though I {Read More}

Time for School!

IT’S BACK TO SCHOOL TIME… My son started his first day of 4 year old preschool and he was all smiles (as you can see!).  It sure helped having quite a few familiar faces from last year in his classroom.  I started this poster tradition with birthdays and have now continued on with each first day of school.  We shall see how long this tradition will last (crossing fingers I can keep up!)  Because he is STILL train obsessed, we were {Read More}

Nautical Themed Party

So, it’s been a couple weeks since our vacation in Florida and I’m really missing the beach!  Watching my boys play together in the sand, riding on the kayak for their first time, searching for seashells, and splashing in the water, made for some great memories.  All of this fun in the sun got me to thinking.  I should probably post E’s nautical themed first birthday deets from almost a YEAR AGO.  Folks, he is almost two!! This mama is suhhhhlacking!  It has {Read More}

DIY New Baby Gift Baskets

When it comes time to make that first visit to meet a new little love, you certainly don’t want to arrive empty handed.  While pretty much anything you bring is appreciated (especially dinner so cooking can be avoided for awhile), something I enjoy giving is a themed baby basket!  This can be made in a variety of ways, whether it’s girly, boyish, or gender neutral!  Here are just a couple ideas that you can use, including free printable tags and {Read More}

Star of the Show Gift

Well, HELLLLOOOO Summer!  It sure has been awhile since I last posted on here.  The months of May and June are always a bit of a blur. With Mother’s Day/Father’s Day, birthday celebrations (FIVE!), our anniversary, closing on our new home, graduations, and recitals…it’s been slightly more difficult to keep up on here!  The one thing, strangely (I admit), that seems to help me maintain my sanity and not get TOO overwhelmed during this time of year is when I can carve {Read More}

My Top 6 Posts of 2015

2015 had come and gone in a blink of an eye.  I suppose part of it has to do with my second son being born this past summer.  Those of you with young kids know all too well how fast the time flies.  It’s hard to believe I actually had time to blog, let alone put together some festive parties, craft up a few fun gifts, and attempt a couple DIY projects.  It was a busy and eventful year and {Read More}
