Summer Days


Hello sweet friends! Glad you've stopped by. Our family is enjoying the lazy days of summer. My son Grant has summer break from his pre-school so it's been so nice not being on a fixed schedule and routine in the mornings. We can all leisurely get up and have time to actually enjoy the morning and not have to experience the mad rush of busy week day mornings. Well, MY CHILDREN may not notice a difference, but I DO! 

 I LOVED summer as a child. It meant swimming, riding bikes, ice cream trucks, roller skating outside in the driveway, family vacations. Brings back so many fun and nostalgic times in my childhood. Right now Im enjoying this time with my children and creating wonderful and memorable summer experiences for them. Before it get's TOO EXTREMELY HOT here in the south I try to let them spend as much time outdoors. This past Saturday I took my children to Dairy Queen. LOTS of great memories at the ole' DQ! Got to love their soft serve ice cream!!!




After our trip to the local DQ, we headed to the park to burn off the calories. ;) This was Vivi's first time on a swing set and just from looking at the first pic it's obvious she LOVED it!  


Such a happy boy!!!!!


Me being corny and taking pictures of my feet.





The heat is already reaching the 90's here so needless to stay we didnt stay at the park too long. I put sunscreen on them both and they still started turning PINK!

It's nice to spending quality time with my children. Too often, I get caught up in my creations and work that Im guilty of not "stopping to smell the roses" I keep reminding myself that they are only young once and to enjoy every moment of it.



GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS! Who has seen this movie yet? What did you think? I LOOOOVED IT!!!! Im sure like many of you I am a HUGE DIE HARD fan!!!! Some of my close girlfriends Heather & Renee with whom I use to be next door neighbors with back in my younger single days use to get together to watch new episodes of Sex and the City every Sunday evening. We would wear our pj's, mix up a margarita and sit back and enjoy. Sometimes our good friends Ben & Jerry would hang out too. 😉

My girlfriend Heather hosted an "all girl" party for the opening night of the movie. Sixteen of us gals dined at a fun swanky restaurant in Atlanta. We of course had to celebrate the movie with the traditional COSMO martini.


Being silly!

"The girls"


All over Atlanta the movie was SOLD OUT! Our tickets were for the 10:45 show. I kid you not out of the whole entire theatre we counted only 10 guys! YEP! The rest were ALL women! Lots of estrogen flowing!!!! hee! hee! It was a site! GIRL POWER! 🙂



Dreaming of Mr. Big!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The evening was a blast! You MUST see this movie if you are a fan. I promise it wont dissapoint!

Have you ever heard of the motto "Less is more…" Well, I do believe in that in most cases. Less clutter and more simple is very soothing and pleasing to the eye. I agree to an extent. However when it comes to my daughters room it's MORE! MORE! MORE! I cant stop buying and collecting things for her room. Hence my newest purchase. I want to share with you my custom Vivian cupcake banner made my the SUPER SWEET and amazingly talented Laurie of Happy as a Lark.   I own several pieces of Lauries work and Im in love with her magical and enchanting creations. Especially her fairies!!!! This is a cupcake banner made in my favorite pastel colors with Vivian's name at the bottom.


It looks PERFECT on her fireplace mantel.
