• Going Gatsby

    Happy Belated Halloween!  I couldn’t resist sharing with you Harper’s flapper baby costume for her first-ever Halloween.  I absolutely love home-made Halloween costumes.  The more obvious, the better.  Blame my momma for making all of mine, or blame my need to do everything the hard way.  Either way, I decided to sew her costume myself and

  • Join Us for a Shower

    Several weeks ago, my fabulous godmother and amazing aunt threw me an incredible baby shower.  Delicious food, great company and a game that had me laughing so hard I cried and I wanted to share the good time with you.

  • It’s a Girl!

    We’re having a baby girl!  Still trying to wrap our heads around that one but we’re slowly getting things into place.  We debated whether or not to find out if she’s a she but Eric put his foot down, and after we found out I was very glad we did.  Partly because I was convinced she
