lately

it's been so busy lately, 
but here are a few things I've actually taken pix of...

little coffee cups stuffed with Easter candy for 
my AVID TAs/tutors....

while looking for recipes I found this from a mommy and me class
I took with my oldest son...I took this pic and sent it to him...his reply,
"oh my gosh I remember this, I think I tried eating it, too!" hahahaha

It never fails, our kitty leaves a gift each night...
on this occasion it was Wolfie, and she stayed with him
until we arrived :) 


I'm SOOOO doing this (next year) for AVID- 
what a cute bulletin board idea for the classroom!

it melts my heart when my son sends me these pix,
he is quite the chef and now is growing a little herb garden 
to compliment his cooking...


picked up my sweet girl from the airport for spring break....

did you celebrate National Oatmeal Cookie Day?
we had a contest at work, although I said NO to raisins 
and went with chocolate chips and butterscotch...yum!

repainting led to moving a bunch of pictures around...
I kinda like this up the stairs....


I'm one to celebrate each holiday just a little...
to make it special for the kids...
my question is this...WHO says NO to Irish Soda Bread? 
It is covered in sugar......how can children not like this??

have a happy day!

st. patty's day decor

although St. Patty's day is not a huge decorating holiday, 
the Irish in me says put up a little green...

I love the dollar section at Target...this clover burlap pennant
was just three bucks.... the one below I made from scrapbook paper
and some torn fabric...

this cute HELLO Spring block is also from the dollar section...so darling :)

a search for a nice indoor pot lead me to this basket 
in the garden section, at- yes- Target... 
it's not just a hollow basket, but has a planter that sits inside...
you can lift it out and there's even a drainage hole
at the bottom (I placed another saucer below just for drainage for this guy)

nothing to do with St. Patty's day, but I've got to share this
yummmmmy new tea...Salted Caramel Mate...it's sooo good!
it was time for some fresh paint... we went with this light gray
called "Sidewalk"...quite a change from our tan/brown

I'll leave you with some dangerously cute wedges I ordered....
if you dare to take a peak you may need a pair 
from Anthropologie, too 

happy Friday!

coffee bar

we made a little coffee bar area off the kitchen....
I love it because it frees up so much counter space :) 

the kids think it looks like a perpetual holiday party, 
because this is what we usually do for gatherings....

I found this adorable chest-of-drawers at a 
{new to us} vintage thrift store....
it had coffee bar written all over it :)

 I love the k cups and syrups in my vintage bread box...

and I'd really been wanting a taller mug rack 
but this concrete base added some height...

please excuse the flipped image from my 
high tech computer cam

baby shower gift idea


my sweet friend had a baby shower for her daughter 
{which is so weird that my friends are becoming grandparents....} 

anywhooo, we wanted to give the parents-to-be a unique gift....
so I gathered up gift cards from some coffee places and fast food restaurants 
{I asked each place for a cup, lid, and straw then stuffed the cups 
with brown and white tissue with the gift card inside} 
 it all fit in the cutest bag ever with their other little gifts....
just something different to make life easier those first few days
running back and forth to the hospital, etc...


my friend had the cutest games, we all thought this was just a 
cute little decoration, but it was actually a memorization game....
the guest who wrote down the most items (after it was removed of course)
won the prize! super cute idea...
babies...   :) so exciting....
