Baby Shower Style

For my baby shower I haven't been able to shop around for that perfect dress like I was hoping to. Every weekend we have had so much going on so shopping was out. Then during the week going with Caleb is a joke. So lets just say praise the LORD for the internet! I found a dress that I really liked from Pinkblush.com. Normally clothes that I order online don't fit that well... odd shape and all, but I was super hopeful this would fit!

When the package arrived to the door I am pretty sure I made a screeching noise. Instantly tried it on and it fit so great, that you would have thought it was tailored to me. For the shower I wanted to be comfortable and elegant at the same time. This dress is so pretty! I love it and everything I am wearing with it!
For my hair I am definitely going curly. My inspiration is from Mrs. Carrie Underwood (love her!). I am wearing my favorite heals from Nine West, they are so comfortable!!!! My Jewels will be my pandora bracelets that my sweet hubby has bought me, a gold Origami Owl bracelet and possible my pearls, that my daddy and momma bought me for my wedding. The theme of my shower is Pink and gold, so my nails will have a little accent of that. 

I can't wait to spend the day with my family and closes girlfriends. My momma knows I can't stand not being involved so I have seen a bunch of the decorations and I must say that I am in love with it all! She truly gets me!!!!

I am still hosting a Spring Launch online party with a mystery host. Log onto my Origami Owl page and the event is in there. Have fun shopping all the new goodies!!!! 

This Saturday our favorite friends are hosting a Crawfish Boil. This is there second year doing it and if it is half as good as last years then we are in for a treat. We are bringing moonshine, strawberry pie and apple pie!

This candle has been burning nonstop all week. I love it and will need to buy more!

This HOT hubby and I have a date night tonight. Love every minute I get to spend with him!!!!

Oddly addicted to sliced apples with homemade peanut butter and local honey. Eating this about twice a day!

Easter Basket Treats

Easter is almost here! This year I can't wait to celebrate it with Caleb and see his excitement on his face when he sees what the Easter Bunny has left for him. I started getting goodies for his basket in early February. Little things I know that he is going to love to play with.

I made his basket last year. I wanted it to be personalized but not cost me an arm and a leg to buy. Found the plastic bucket at the dollar store, had the lettering from scrapbooking, then I snazzed it up with some matching ribbon. I liked this basket so much, and knew one day that we would hopefully have more kids I bought a bucket in every color they sold. So our next kid(s) will all have matching Easter baskets from the bunny!


Caleb's Basket has...
Two Polo shirts, bubbles (target), sand toys (target), egg sidewalk chalk (dollar store), weird ball toy with eyes (target dollar bin), Annie's bunny gummies, and two books from Sandra Boynton. 

I might add some yogurt melts and other goodies if I happen to see anything while I am out and about. 

What is the bunny bringing your little one?

Weekend Recap

I love when weekend are full of family time, laughter and love. This weekend was just that. 

Saturday morning Jeff thought it would be fun to take Caleb to the beach for his first time. Yes we live super close to the beach but we prefer the boat life and going to the sand bar. When we started getting him ready Caleb kept saying boat, boat, boat. Pointing to the back yard and trying to open the door. He was so confused to why we where getting in the car. That boy quickly became all smiles when we drove up to the beach.


 The water was soooo cold and this boy had zero interest going in. However digging in the sand was a huge hit. After a quick trip we had to leave and get ready to celebrate Nana's birthday.

My sweet Momma was having a little party to celebrate her birthday. Besides the family they had their best couple friends. Daddy made dinner and I made dessert. Instead of making momma a cake I went with a strawberry pie... if I may say myself, it was darn yummy!




When the friends left we pulled out the guitars for some singing. The video of Caleb singing Sweet Carolina is precious! It melts my heart every time I watch it!

Sunday Caleb went to hang out with Grandpa and Nana, while we went on the boat with some old friends. It was so nice catching up with them. We where at the sandbar for awhile and then took the boat to I.C. Sharks for some good grub and drinks. 




With all the fun we had I forgot a very important thing... SUNSCREEN! And now my poor skin is paying for it. I look ridiculous and hurt!!!!

Strawberry Picking

One of my favorite times of the year is to go strawberry picking. Last week my favorite local organic farm opened up for you pick it. So with much excitement I called my friend Nicole and we loaded up the kids to go. The drive is about 45 minutes away to Dover, which happens to be the town that Nicole grew up in. Caleb was missing his morning nap... it was touch and go if he would have a melt down.

At first he was loving it, although he doesn't like strawberries (like his daddy!) he was very helpful on the picking and putting it in the bucket.




Then out of nowhere the first melt down happened. Screaming, kicking, crawling all over the floor. After a little tap on the hand we sat in the car for a bit. He cooled his mood and we went back to picking.




I was hoping to get more berries, but with the little man's bad mood we ended our trip early. I did still end up with three large gallon jugs, for ONLY $12! Organic strawberries for $12... that is a great deal and worth my time to go pick them!

We took the kids to McDonald's for lunch, with both of them having a melt down I was done! Mentally tired and done for the day.

Processing the strawberries maybe took me a little over an hour. We have a bunch of events this month and the perfect thing for me to bring is Strawberry Pie. Placed them in separate bags for each pie.

My great grandma is flying back to Norfolk today, and I am going to miss her so! She is planning on coming down in August for her 106 birthday and to meet our little ballerina. Yes, she is 105! That girl is in good health too. I think she will out live us all!!!! 


I am hosting a Spring Launch online party with a mystery host. That means one lucky lady that puts an order in will get ALL of the hostess rewards. If y'all would love to join then here is the link to my Origami Owl page and the event is in there. Have fun shopping all the new goodies!!!! 

Cannot wait to get these Anchor Bookends in the mail from Target. I have no idea where they are going in my house but I just couldn't pass these up!

How sweet is the invitation that my momma ordered for my baby shower. She is making the theme, the same colors as the little ballerina's nursery. She ordered them from RachellesPrintables

Sunday is going to be perfect boating weather! We have invited some old friends that we have not seen in months and it will be so nice to catch up with them!


Hope everyone has a great weekend!
