I hope… {Happy Halloween}


that you haven’t stopped caring about this little ole blog.

that you aren’t annoyed too much that I go through periodic moments of MIA{ness}.

that you take a moment to be grateful for what you have in the wake of this crazy hurricane that blasted the East Coast.

that you got to enjoy a warm cup of coffee or tea or hot chocolate this morning. {I’m still working on mine… and it’s no longer warm. #fail}

that it warms up a little bit around here… I was enjoying fall… and I’m not quite ready for winter yet.

that Harper comes soon {but not sooner than she should!} because I can’t wait to meet her.

that the reading glasses I recently purchased help – and that I don’t actually need glasses.

that Nashville doesn’t get cancelled – I’m in love with that show… anyone else???

that I actually get back into the swing of things. Like now. I missed blogging.

that y’all have a fantastic Halloween… stay safe, stay warm, and eat lots of candy! {Oh! And watch some scary movies… }

Halloween ’12 – my best costume. Vampire.


Halloween ’10 – please note how thrilled he looks. #crazycatlady


Halloween ’09 – I was a cowgirl. So not original.

Happy Halloween, pumpkins!


Pinteresting. {Easter Sunday.}

Hello Easter Sunday, {well, it’s not quite Easter Sunday… BUT it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear.} I always imagine Easter dresses to be very prim and proper – and I realize most ladies {unless you are a child} don’t really wear or think about Easter dresses, but I look forward to any occasion to dress girlie. These dresses are all from ModClothย and I then pinned them onto my Style board on Pinterest. They all have a very similar feel – floral, girlie, classy, but simple. And I like that.

Want to see what I’m wearing on Easter Sunday?

Too bad, you’ll have to wait for the photos, kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

And, we can’t forget the accessories – this is where you can choose to make the dress a little more funky, classy, subdued… the sky is really the limit!

Here are my favorites…

I mean, how adorable is that little bunny ring?!

Are you getting all fancy schmancy for Easter??

Don’t forget to visit my lovely friend, Beth and see what she found pinteresting for Easter!

Happy Tuesday, kittens!

2 months. 60 days. 1440 hours.

That’s all the time we have until the holidays… can you believe it? I feel so old when I think about how quickly time flies these days. Remember when we were younger and our parents would always say things like “I can’t believe they’re getting so big already?” or “Time really does fly when you get old.”


Who’d have thought?! Parents – being right?! No way! I mean, all the time! ๐Ÿ˜‰

But, all joking aside – it’s time to get thinking about the holiday season. And I couldn’t be happier! Christmas shopping, decorating, parties, cookies, what’s not to love?? {Aside from the snow and cold, yucky weather.}

Here’s a sneak peek at my dear santa list this year…

What’s on your Dear Santa list this year??
Stay tuned for some fun gift giving guides for the most impossible people in your life to buy for!
Have a great day, pumpkins!
Love always.
