I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  Our nephew from California is flying in and should be here soon.  He will be staying with us until Wednesday.  Looks like the weather might improve for us. Yay!!  Hope you all enjoy your long weekend.

For all you plaid lovers

Oh my word aren't these adorable.  I LOVE this lamp.  All these are by Jeffrey Banks at HSN.  Who knew HSN had such cute things.

Nautical Finds

I just LOVE when I come across new nautical things I haven't spotted before.  Check out all these cuties I found at HSN.  They are all calling my name.  Hmmm the question, how to order all these and not let the husband see (ha-ha).

Have a fabulous Monday :)

1st Ferrari

Only one years old and just got his first Ferrari (ha-ha). 

Our friends from Italy sent the little one this fun birthday present. It is soooo cute. No baby music or baby sounds just cool car and racing sounds. I wish you all could hear it. It's hilarious how real it sounds. When my husband and I were visiting our friends in Italy we went to Monza and watched the real Ferrari's race so this was fun that they sent one to Kyle.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Pink and Green Thursday

It's Pink and Green Thursday with Miss Trish and for today's finds I came across these little cuties at a site called Casual Living.  I think they are just perfect for summer to throw on to run some errands or to run to the store real quick.  They also look like they could work as a coverup as well.

Happy Thursday.

12 month appointment

We took the little one for his 1 year appointment yesterday.  We were a little behind with being in Michigan and all.  He did great.  He decided he was a big boy and walked from the waiting room all the way back to the examining room which is pretty far since the office is so big.  Oh he was so proud of himself.  It was too cute.  We knew we had a big boy on our hands and the doctor confirmed.  He is in the 100% for his height and 97% for weight.  The doctor said he is the height of a 2 year old.  Both sides of our families are tall so he gets it from both of us.  No wonder people are shocked when they ask how old he is and I say he's only 1.  He had to get 2 more shots yesterday too and didn't cry.  It was amazing.  He is growing up so fast.  

Hope you all are having a great week.

Wrinkle Free

Last year after having our little one, I quickly realized having the ironing board set up like I used to wasn't going to work.  I came across my little steamer and have LOVED it. 

They are inexpensive and come in several colors. I have this black one and have been really happy with how mine works.  Another nice feature is that the cord retracts right into the unit.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Swinging Away

The other day when the weather was nice we took the little one for a swing for the first time.  He had a ball. 

Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Michigan recap

Good morning!!  As promised, here are a few shots from Michigan.  Kyle had a great time.  Here he is meeting his new cousin Jack.  Oh does he LOVE babies :)

He wasn't lacking for any kisses with aunt Cindy over.

After he got used to the grass he had fun playing with his cousins Ben and Anna.

I can't believe he is walking all over these days. 


Doing bubbles for the first time with his aunt Terri.

He had lots of fun watching the birds out the back porch.

Of course he had to help grandpa mow the lawn :)

Still getting used to this.

Grandma giving him laundry basket rides.

He LOVES books.  He would rather do this than play with his toys. He and grandpa are buds.

Hope you all are having a great week so far.  I am off to enjoy our nice weather today. It's already 75 and supposed to get up in the 80's.  Finally!!

We're Back!

We finally made it home last night.  It feels good to be home and I know the little one is so happy to be back in his bed again.  We have had 2 wonderful weeks in Michigan visiting with the family, but I am so happy to have internet again.  It will take me a while to catch up with you all, but I can't wait to see what you all have been up to.   Once I get myself organized I will post some pictures. Hope all you moms had a wonderful Mothers Day yesterday.

Target Ad

Have you seen the Target Ad today?  If not, here is a nautical tee I spotted.  They are only $12.99.  They also have a red one with a sailboat on it.
