weekend project!

it's saturday! it's sunny! and it's cold. just did a quick pajama pancake run this morning and my car read 29 degrees. boo. dutch is busy saving lives all weekend (on shift.) so it's just us girls. what's on our agenda since the park is out? tumbling class, pick-up party, side-by-side polish changes, costco, visit a sweet friend (who is also preggers & has been put on strict bedrest! ) keep my friend "b" in your prayers, she is 21 weeks prego with a 2 year old and a firefighter hubs also... she is strong & patient but i can only imagine how long the next 4 months are going to be. so we're gonna head over there, take some goodies, lay on the couch together, make a lil dinner for her, and i even offered to give her a blow-out. good hair is truly healing, yes? anyways, back to the to-do list. i really need to throw in a few aka 90 loads of laundry and then last but not least... final birthday preparations for a special someone's day next month! i just stumbled upon this tutorial here. i can do this! i'm for sure going to make an "L" or a "3" for the top of a giant cupcake. and then maybe, just maybe, if i dig down deep...i will attempt to make a personalized pennant for all guests! what an adorable favor would these be? l-o-v-e. wish me luck!


hello energy!

perhaps it's been the a-mazing weather & open windows. perhaps it's the fact i've entered the ever so glorious "second trimester." i'm sure it's a combo of both. but whatever it is, i'm soooo happy it's here! i've got my pep back. (i will not mention here that it's indeed supposed to snow this weekend.) anyways, here i am. eating my breakfast. and blogging. ta ha. and what have i chose to share with you? oh only just about cleaning supplies. i may have lost my mind..

l-o-v-e this cleaning/anti-bac spray! method lemon verbena spray. makes your whole casa smell so fresh and so clean clean. seriously i'm obsessed. also if youre searching for that pep in your step to get started with your spring projects. snag yourself a copy of this guy. worked for me! enjoy your day muffins.

i love me a new project & of course i've got baby on the brain... i'm sure i'll change my mind 90 times and not get started for months...but its always f-u-n to get inspired. just thought i'd share. also liv had tumbling again this morning...let's just say i think a "freelance dance" class would be more up her alley.


we are family.

i'm healed! seasonal funk + first trimester exhaustion is not a good combo. sometimes all a southern gal needs is a long girls weekend away with her family!! my thoughtful husband surprised me and my mom with plane tickets to texas for christmas! it was so nice to have something to look forward to & even though it went by way too fast...it was an amazing weekend. we had a complete blast (even though i couldn't join in on the bottomless mimosa brunch special.) i really don't think we stopped laughing for 4 days. i l-o-v-e austin. so fun. and fredericksburg, tx is simply adorable. it was like winter rehab. healing, fun, relaxing, and so pleasant. even though i live in the same town as my mom..it's crazy how with a toddler you don't get the opportunity to have real conversations often. so great to have quality time with my dear mom. and i am soooo blessed to have such an awesome auntie and cousins. love my fam! oh! and word on the street has it that dutch and liv had a super daddy/daughter weekend too.
