A Weekend of Fun in the SNOW in Atlanta… Say WHAAAAT?!?!?!

.A few weekends ago we enjoyed a day in the SNOW!  What?  In Atlanta?  And the city didn’t shut down?!  Snow, Atlanta, and fun are never used in the same sentence (typically).  But this time was different. Yes, we went to SNOW MOUNTAIN at Stone Mountain.  I’ve talked about doing this every year for the […]

Wine Glass Silhouette Project

.The neighborhood ladies are ready for Spring play dates with these bright, cheerful wine glasses I made yesterday with my Silhouette Portrait. Bring on sun, warm weather, kids, scooters, bikes, and wine!!! To make these, I used a thick glass wine glass so it could withstand the dishwasher. I then made my circle monogram and […]

Oliver (Our Elf on the Shelf) – Day 1

.And so it begins. Oliver will be making his trek to and from the North Pole each night to report back to Santa the behavior of three cute kiddos. The boys wrote letters Nd drew pictures asking him to come back for the holiday season. Ryan even found a sweater that he thought might fit […]

Hot Dog Mummies

.What a perfect Halloween dinner. Hot dog mummies Simple, easy, and oh so festive. I bought the refrigerated crescent rolls and then cut them into strips with a pizza cutter. Then I wrapped the strips around the hot dogs in a messy, unplanned, criss-cross manner. I baked them according to the instructions on the crescent […]

Carefree Summer…

.Is it too soon to miss summer break? We’ve only completed our first week of school and already I’m missing our carefree summer.  With days spent like this, wouldn’t you be missing summer break too?  

Lesson Learned? Nope!

.I had a craving for ice cream the other night, go figure.  It was a nice Spring night and I thought it would be fun to all go out as a family after dinner and enjoy some ice cream and then run off the sugar in the park. Good plan you say?  I thought so. […]

Where Oh Where Have We Been?

.Between work, the boys, the pregnancy, the holidays (yes, I’m referring back to Christmas and Thanksgiving!), My Hello Designs, and well, life in general, I’ve been MIA lately. I haven’t visited many blogs and haven’t been as social online as I once was.  I haven’t been blogging much myself either.  I’ve missed birthdays and anniversaries […]

The View From My Foyer

.Yes, this is the view from my foyer. A big ol’ Santa bottom. His bright red suit stands 12 feet tall on our front porch roof.  It casts quite the red shadow throughout our house when the sun shines on it.  And it lights up our foyer when it glows at night. In case you […]

The Chill in the Air Means HALLOWEEN is Coming….

.With the chill in the air it feels like Halloween is right around the corner. Yes, you heard me correctly that there is a chill in the air in Atlanta. And by chill, I mean mid 70s. So naturally, with the chill and Halloween approaching, I’ve been on Pinterest searching for fun Halloween goodies to […]

Melissa & Doug Sand Toys Giveaway!

.Our boys love dirt.  Sand, mud, rocks, dust.  It doesn’t matter.  They love it. Doesn’t every kid? So with our vacation to the middle of Wisconsin approaching I was on the hunt for some great sand toys for the boys.  And Melissa & Doug came to the rescue! We already had some of their puzzles […]
