Sophie’s Baptism

Monday, May 31st, 2010

We had a lovely weekend. Cousins visited, played wii, baptised Sophie, had a wonderful party with beautiful cupcakes from Bakery Gingham & food from Weiland’s Gourmet Market and tasty pulled pork Walker made, played at the park, ate popsicles, watched movies and went to Cosi and a birthday party. So much fun!

If you could get this custom made of a bunch of friends, it would make a really neat conversational art piece in your house.

Necklace and Cute Owlie

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

The other night I got out of the house for a little while to meetup with a good friend. I haven’t gone out much totally alone lately, so it was fun. And it was great to hang out and chat. Before meeting up, I ran into Tigertree real quick to see if I could find a necklace to wear for a fun night out we have coming up. I had looked earlier at Target, but the only ones I thought were cool were $40 and I didn’t really feel like spending that much on a necklace at Target. They have some fun stuff, but everything goes on clearance eventually, so at $40 it felt overpriced. Anyway, I found a pretty cool necklace, a sparkly stone on a silver chain and then saw this great little owl pin and picked him up too. He might make it on a coat or something some day, but he also looks pretty happy sitting in the welcome shadowbox by our front door. He is adorable! Too bad he wasn’t also a necklace, I would wear him all of the time. I’m sure Desi and Sophie would have a great time tugging on him.

Pretty Shirt Dress

Monday, May 17th, 2010

I’ve always thought shirt dresses looked great. I don’t own one though. Not sure I would like the collar on the neckline. But this one in particular looks so pretty! Makes me think of beautiful spring and summer days, hanging freshly laundered clothes on the line and just enjoying being outside. From Modcloth.

Madsen Bike

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

Having two little kids makes something as simple and as fun as riding a bike seem like it is way off in the future. I love this Madsen Bike in the light blue color. And two seatbelts in the bucket. Carefree summer rides!

Desi’s Room Progress

Friday, May 14th, 2010

Today I put up the curtains in Desi’s room and rearranged furniture. I did frame his alphabet picture but haven’t decided where to hang it yet, so it didn’t make it into the picture. I love the curtains!

Still have: dresser, shelves, lighting, painting walls, painting his table and chair set, window seat and hanging curtains in that window.
