Skippyjon Jones Birthday Party

I am so excited to share todays Skippyjon Jones Birthday Party with you! We missed having a 3rd birthday for Asa (since my preggo belly was about to explode at any moment) so I started planning his 4th almost right away. After I got the pictures (from the lovely Courtney Miller), I knew I wanted to submit the party to Amy Atlas for a feature. (But first I had to get the guts to send it in!) So I finally did and now that she has featured it, I can post the details! A few years ago, a good friend […]

A Little Bit of a Rant

Carolina Island House

  Image Credit Sometimes I think I should have been born on the East coast. Up until recently (within the last 3 or so years), I didn’t know what made my heart sing in terms of home decor. Don’t get me wrong, I could look through catalogs and home decor magazines and see a lot of inspiring pictures, but I wasn’t able to pinpoint what it was that I loved. Enter in Pottery Barn and Pinterest. Pottery Barn has great stylists. Their catalogs are carefully crafted to make you want to buy an entire room- even if you don’t have […]

Another Cochlear Update

Last week I had an appointment with my “right ear” audiologist (I have one for my hearing aid ear and one for my¬†bionic cochlear ear). It went well. ¬†Not as great as I had hoped, but the news was positive¬†for someone that has failed to do their homework. (I’m supposed to practice listening with just my right ear, but in order to do that I have to completely block the noise out of my left ear. To do that I have to put an earplug in it then hold my ear flap down over it. ¬†It’s painful after about 10 […]

May flew by. I mean FLEW. Asa finished preschool, we packed and prepared for our Disney Cruise, went on said cruise, came home (after the LONGEST day at the airport EV-ER), ¬†had the boys 1st and 4th birthday party, and then sold our house. Yup. Cur-a-zy. So I know I have been promising the rest of the house picks, some more showers and some more recipes, but I kindly ask for your patience. ¬†I’m still working out my summer routine and throwing in packing and moving to the mix is just a little nutso. What I can say: 1. Alaska […]
