baby days

i can't believe in roughly two weeks he is going to be one! i have gone from a gal that had never changed a diaper into a mother. i've watched my husband become a father. our family of two has become a family of three. what an amazing year.

and yes, the blue line indicates a peepee diaper. thanks.

space well done.

what gorgeous rooms! found these on design-shimmer. such amazing family spaces, open and full of light. if there were indeed crystal balls that held images of the future, these may be the kind of images sailing around in ours. :)

still have the itch?

if you're just dying to spend some loot...

super duper cute little girl stuff at bodenusa



i get it, there are people out there with gobs of money. but, seriously, how detached from mainstream society do you have to be to suggest a "new summer look" that retails at around $4,000? anyway, i did my best to recreate this ensemble for considerably less. the jacket was a bit hard for me to find, but i am POSITIVE it can be done. why on earth anyone would spend so much on a denim skirt is beyond me, but i found a less expensive one.

ready to grow!

it hit me all of the sudden, spring is here! all i can do is fantasize about working in the yard with the hubby. for some reason, in my fantasy graham is at his grandparents for this...teehee.  i am thinking green, thinking flowers and thinking of edible goodies too. before we know it the weather is going to turn on us. let's see, super hot, yup. who knows what we'll get done before summer truly hits. we won't want to be baking in the hot sun digging when we could be swimming at the lake!

for mom

something good looking for the kitchen maybe. anything from this store quite frankly.

there are so many places to pick up gorgeous flowers, but this place is too cool, it's gotta get a mention.

just a pretty little bauble.

i think tinydallas has it right though, a picnic while the weather's mild. simple good idea.

mother's day approaching

mother's day is nearly here and i have not been too "wowed" by ideas online. maybe that's because the day itself is not about the "wow" factor. cards, flowers, pancakes, and gifts are nice. it may be as simple as a phone call. let's not forget the mothers not here any longer and the pieces of them inside us. i have learned since becoming a mom, it's a tough job. The creation of a spanking new being is magical. i now have a new respect for moms. the real superheros however, are tougher than me. mothers of more than one kiddo, single mothers, step-mothers and mothers of special needs children should get extra applause.

the modern family, portrait

i love the new "look" of a family photograph. they are beginning to capture the quirky beauty a family projects. the intimacy makes each image so lasting.

the guy that took this has a fantastic blog with plenty of great pictures of his own family too. pacingthepanicroom

what a cool photoshoot. sometimessweet

this is just one of the many family pictures this family has had taken. hands down, one of my favorite blogs. mycakies

we had such a wonderful weekend in atlanta! we ate, we drank and were quite merry. it was so great to be in the city and to be with CYNDI!

the only word that goes in front of cyndi, is bitchin'.
