Did you go??

Friday, March 23, 2012

{Excuse the bad quality photo} Maris and her friends had been waiting anxiously for the first showing of the Hunger Games at midnight this morning!! She sent me this picture from outside the theater at 11:30 last night. I'm not sure what they are pointing at--she is still in bed, so I can't ask! Lucky for these ladies, they had an 'incentive day' {1 day off from school for good grades} and decided this was the day to use it. I can't wait to hear all about it. Did you or your kids make it? What'd ya think?

Happy Hump Day, lovelies! I am on my way out the door to work on a fun, albeit different project this morning {pictures later in the week} While I am away, you are invited to visit 2 creative, funny and super stylish gals who happen to currently call Winston-Salem {my hometown!!} home. These ladies, {who are both Lindsay's!} are the dynamic duo behind the blog Sadie and Stella--named after their dogs, of course. Yeah, you like them already, right?!

I am honored to be be featured here today sharing one of my favorite rooms. Please jump over and take a look around.   


My favorite: Passive Juice Motel

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

You know how you come across something so fabulous that you just can't stop thinking about it? I love it when these discoveries land on my eyeballs and make my heart skip a beat. Kind of like the first day of the year when I discover that the shelves of the stores have just stocked the Cadbury Eggs!!! Sheer Heaven.....

Well, this is sort of the happiness that fell over me when I saw the handiwork of Katie of the etsy shop Passive Juice Motel. Katie was commissioned to create the family of Ashley Ann, the adorable blogger of Under the Sycamore Tree. Here is Ashley Ann's family:

If you follow her blog, you know that this sweet family is waiting ever so patiently and prayerfully for the newest member of their family, their precious daughter, to finally come home. She currently lives in an orphanage a million worlds away, but soon, very soon, she will *complete* this family. 

Katie was kind enough to give them a preview of their completed family:

In dolls!!

Can you believe the preciousness of this gift????

They were made for *little one* in the likeness of every family member so that when she finally arrives, she can get acquainted with her big new loving family.

Mom with her camera and Dad with his guitar. 

her siblings in their favorite outfits, superhero cape, cowboy boots, striped tights and a tutu...sigh  

    This may just be the best baby gift I have ever seen!

We get to put a big fat check mark next to successful weekend! Maris and I went to Winston in search of THE perfect prom dress. She made the right choice--it is stunning on her. I can't wait to share pics with you but we will have to wait until the big event next month.  

Here's a little fact for all you parents of youngsters...prepare yourselves, prom dresses are crazy expensive. One store we went to, the average price was $450. And no, it wasn't Saks or Neiman Marcus or any designer labels that we had ever heard of. They were gorgeous gowns, but there was no way we were shelling that out for one night {not to mention, we also had to buy the shoes and the jewelry}. So just in case there is a young lady out there who is looking for a dress, we are selling the one that Maris wore her freshman year. I love this dress and hate to see it go, but it's just too pretty to simply hang in the closet. It's only been worn once.

It is a size 2, but fits more like a 4. We are asking $75 {which is a bargain!} contact me if you want more info.
