Sorry Ya'll!

Sorry Ya'll! I've been sick and haven't posted in a whole week! But not a lot has gone on since I have been under the weather. I will be back to normal soon I hope!

Just to keep ya going, I've got Zane's 3rd birthday this weekend and I hope I am better by then! I have created lots of cool things for his party and things to do! I will be taking lots of pictures so that I can share with ya'll! The theme is Toy Story 3 and goodness it's gonna be a splash!
{literally- with squirt guns and a slip n slide!}

Also Monday is Memorial Day! I hope that you all have a safe and fun filled holiday!
Bless our Troops and their families!

It's been a loooonnnnggg week! The hubs finally is done with outage season until the fall! I get to see him everyday for a few months! I love this time of year! The sun is out, warm, and beautiful outside! I love just sitting on the swing and watching Zane play in his sandbox. It's my little piece of sanity in the evenings! I would sleep there if they'd let me! I am also loving that there are 40 days until my week long beach vacation and durn it, I'm ready! There is a tractor/truck pull tomorrow so y'all might be getting a post of pictures if we get to go! It's good cheap fun! I've sewn a few things this week, but I haven't uploaded the pictures yet so you will see them soon! Enough rambling, I'm out of here!

I hope y'all have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!

What Do I Love?

I love that it's Wednesday {two days until the weekend} and I am so excited to show you what I am loving right now!
I absolutely LOVE anything monogrammed! I am definitely making a birthday list!
{too bad my hubby doesn't read my blog!}

So, this first one is #1 with me right now. Why you ask? Because they are one of a kind, handmade rings in any size. Being that I have big fat fingers and can't always buy cute rings!
{Yes a total bummer, but I don't want to be a skinny minnie} $125
 Second, I've been eyeing this beauty since Marley Lilly first posted it on their website!

Last but not least the 3rd is the bracelet. I just can't get enough! $199

Here's my story of how I discovered ML. I was in search of some monogrammed scarves  to gift for Christmas and found that google would be my friend so that I didn't actually have to go anywhere.We all know that shopping during that time of year is crazy! We'll I ordered several scarves and loved every product that they have. Since then they have expanded into much more that just embroidery. They've got this amazing jewelry listed above! Check it out for yourself at!

What's in my ML cart right now?
  • Baseball Cap
  • Croakies
  • Lounge Chair Cover with Pockets
What's in yours? I'd like to know! Leave your comments below.

As always, Have a fabulous day!

Munchkin Duds

Here are some of the projects that have kept me busy! I am making several items that were speacial orders from friends! Two of which were "Super Capes"! These are so cute and can be personalized in any way! I can even make a girly version! All complete with a mask and arm cuffs! The onesie with shorts was for a childhood friend's little boy. It was for him to wear on his first birthday! The necklace onesie is new and I can't wait to make lots of these! I will keep you posted of new items when they are completed!
xoxo- Much Love!

Yeah...I know!

Yeah I know I know! I am a total loser for not posting anything I have promised! I have just been so slack lately! Mother's Day was great! The Hubs and Zane took me on a picnic to Stumphouse Tunnel and we also got to get boiled peanuts! Yum! I took lots of cute pictures, but of course I have not loaded them yet. (again, I'm a total slack butt) So, I am going to post some pictures that I do have loaded and post a W.I.L.W! I hope y'all have a fabulous day!

The Hubs & Zane playing with the train table. {It took Steve over an hour to get it all set up just for Zane to knock it down in like two seconds! Steve wasn't real happy, but that's what a 2 1/2 year old does!}

Painting with Mommy! I finally gave in and decided to let the reins loose and give Zane some paint and do it with little supervision!
He did really well until at the end he wanted to do it with his fingers and not the brush!

So I improvised and I painted both of his little hands and we created a hand print picture which he loved!

For some crazy reason this night Zane was all about this dinosaur he name Spike. He was even feeding him and taking him to use the bathroom! He is just too funny sometimes!


I love how I lose things and think [hope] I will find them.{I ususally never find them}
I love my family and and what they do for me!
I love myself even if I don't love what I look like.
I love my one true best friend! {She knows it too!}
I love my life and those that are in it. If you aren't, I wished you were!
I love hot summer days and cool summer nights!
I love my flip flops and capris.
I love my hair long and hope I don't cut it off when the heat gets here!
I love anything with a crescent moon and palmetto tree!
I love anything southern!
I love a good laugh and a good cry! {everyone needs to do this!}
I love reading blogs and getting many ideas! {I have so many at this point, I will never finish!}

I know I have been slack with my pictures I promised on Monday, but they are coming along. It's been busy for some reason this week. But I will tell you about the weekend so you can anticipate great pictures! Saturday I cleaned house and did laundry and gathered things to drive up and spend the night with Steve while he is working out of town. That afternoon Zane and I went up to see him and had a fabulous steak dinner at Longhorns. I love that place! Then we went came back to the camper where Steve is living for the time being and hung out. Saturday we woke up to decide what the day holds being that Steve only gets one day off a week while he is working. So while Steve went to get breakfast I contemplated on going to Discovery Place for kids in Charlotte. It was close and only cost $8 to get in. Why not? A cheap place for us all to play. {Yes, we're kids at heart too!} Well Steve gets back and says he wanted to drive down to the beach since it was 'only' 3 hours away. What?!? Well we are a very spontaneous family and always have been. Steve saying that Zane was excited. We packed some drinks and snacks and got on the road. Once we got there we met up with my Grandfather and ate lunch with him ocean side! Then we took Zane down to the water to play and he got soaked! Go figure! After spending an hour watching Steve chase Zane every where in the water while I took lots of pictures, we went to Murrells Inlet. Oh what a beautiful place that is at sunset! I didn't get any sunset pictures but we went to the Lazy Gator and got ice cream and to see if the gator was still there. The live one wasn't but the fiberglass one was and we took pictures on it too! Once it was over and we took my Grandpa back to his house we headed home. I was sad it was a short visit, but it was a great one! I can't wait to spend a week there this summer! xoxo


What about you? Do you love your Mom?
Mother's Day is this weekend and I wanted to post a bit about my mother!
The Lord really has her in his arms because she has been through so much in her life.
She is a strong & loving woman! She is the one who has taught me how to craft, cook, and do all sorts of things. She is my best friend in the whole wide world!
I love her to the moon and back!

Don't forget to tell your mother how much you
appreciate them this Mother's Day!
