I need your help!

My next big house project is re-doing my children's playroom upstairs. We just replaced the carpeting with a beautiful, light colored bamboo flooring. I found this amazing Waverly fabric with goldfish that I would love to use for valances at www.fabric.com. What do yall think? Is it appropriate for a child's playroom? It reminds me of Lilly, but not your traditional pink and green. If I were to go with this fabric, what color should I paint the walls; pool blue or a nice coral? It always helps to get someone else's opinion! Be honest!

I'm Back!

I'm back from a very long bloggy break! The past two weeks have been very busy for us! We have been in New Jersey, visiting family, and to Pennsylvania to the Lilly Wearhouse sale, and in Virginia visiting my dear friend, Joni. But let's be clear- traveling with two young children for 10 days is NO vacation!
The wearhouse sale was wonderful! We got there on the first day, Wednesday, about 11 am. There was a line to get in, but it moved surprisingly fast. (Maybe I was just so excited that time flew by!) It was so nice to see so many Lilly lovers in one place, and everyone was in such a good mood! I had no idea what to expect, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! There was a wonderful selection of dresses, shorts, bathing suits, and accessories. By the time we got there, however, all the $40 Murfee Scarves were gone! There was a big selection of men's bathing suits, which my husband got two of. (yes, he is a Lilly lover, too!) I purchased three dresses, one pair of shorts, the cinch one-piece bathing suit (the one I blogged about), a skirt, and two dress for my daughter. I also purchased some stationary items and keychains. I have to say, the Lilly employees are the best! They are the most friendly group, and so incredibly helpful! Oh, and Janie is gorgeous and a little ray of sunshine!!! Bottom line is, I will defiantly return in the fall! Just not with TWO little ones!! I missed you all!!

The perfect summer bag!

While at the beach this weekend, I decided to do a little shopping. There is alot of cute little boutiques at the beach, and you can always find some cute, unique things. Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon quite possibly the cutest handbags ever! I immediately fell in love with them all, but unfortunately hubby said I had to pick one. (Note to self: next time, leave hubby at home!) They are handwoven in Thailand, I think, and have the most beautiful ribbons and embellishments. A few of my favorites: I love this beautiful red and white and shell handbag. Perfect for the Fourth of July or a summer cookout at the beach. I loved this one, too, simply because seahorses are the cutest little things!

These are my favorites! I purchased the hot pink bee one, which matches perfectly with just about all my Lilly dresses! If you have been reading my blog awhile, you know about my obsession with bees! I really liked this one, too, because of the pink and green ribbon. (Maybe next time!)
Aren't these just the most adorable, preppy bags?! They are called Bosom Buddy Bags, and you can check out their website here. They range in price from about $40 to $200. I think the bee clutch I purchased was around $40. Be sure to check them out, there is so many different ribbon colors and embellishments to choose from. Happy Shopping!!

A little house tour

I thought it would be fun to give you a little tour of my home. I'll do one room in each post. Just remember, it's a work in progress! I wanted to do my favorite room first, my dining room. I guess it's because the hubby and kids rarely go in there, so it stays nice and clean. (It's funny how fast a man and kids can destroy a house!) I just finished these covering these chairs this weekend. And yes, that's my K-Mart tray table! This is my beloved chandelier I bought from an antique store for $4o and spray painted sparkly silver! I need about a million of these shelves to display all my little collectables! (mostly bunnies!) Since I am not very computer savvy, I didn't know how to turn this picture around (Just turn your computer or head to the side :)). This china cabinet is way too small for me, but it will just have to do until I find the perfect one. My favorite picture of my favorite little girl!

Hope you enjoyed a little tour of my dining room! Next time, my office!

This past week was our last week of preschool. The kids had an adorable preschool graduation for family to attend. They sang songs, got "diplomas", and had cake. Just wanted share a couple of pictures from this special event!

I am so proud of my little girl!

Bathing Suit Season

Since I was pregnant last summer, I didn't get to buy a cute bathing suit; just a maternity one (ugh!) I fell in love with this one the minute I saw it! It's Lilly, it's toile, and it's got removeable straps. How much more perfect can you get?! The problem is, my husband disagrees. He does NOT want me to wear a one-piece, even though that's what I feel most comfortable in. He says it's old-ladyish. So I need some advice- what do you guys think?

Winslow's 6 Month Pictures

I can't believe little man is already 6 months old! The past six months has flown by so fast! Just wanted to share a few of his pictures we got done today. (These pictures haven't been cropped or touched up.)
