The Posh Palm

A while back I had won a giveaway Miss Ashley was having over at Sweet Southern Prep.  Thank you so much Miss Ashley.  I was super excited!!!  I had won a blog makeover with the very creative The Posh Palm.  Thinking of ideas was hard, but after a while I thought I might like a nautical design, so I gave the very talented Jennie a list of nautical things I liked and she came up with some suggestions.  I can't wait to see it.  So stay tuned my new design will be coming soon.  Please be sure to stop on over to The Posh Palm.  Jennie has done the cutest designs.  Not only does she do blog designs but logo designs, Etsy banners, custom character Illustrations and website designs just to name a few.

Have a wonderful Monday.

Pink and Green Thursday

Sorry I have missed a few Pink and Green Thursday's with all this traveling back and forth but hopefully I can get back into the swing of things again.  My picks this week are from a lovely site called Nantucket Notables.  Here are some of my favs.

Semi-Wordless Wednesday

Though I don't really buy school supplies for myself anymore nor is my little one old enough yet but I still enjoy perusing the school supply isle each fall.  Last night during a quick run into Walmart I spotted this darling little 7x9 notebook.

  I couldn't pass it up with all the pink and green.  I'm a list girl so I like cute notebooks to keep my lists organized.  The hubs tries to get me to do all this electronically but after many years of working and having times when our computers would be down and couldn't do anything I enjoy my handwritten form. At only $2.47 I had to bring this one home. 

Happy Wednesday.

Whirlwind Week

We finally made it back to NC late last night.  It was a busy week.  We left NC last week, headed to Michigan then off to Illinois.  We had so much to do around the house including take care of a tree that was damaged in a storm and take our car in.  While in NC the neighbor ran into our car and was so nice to come over and tell us.  That took 3 days but came out great.  Just some minor bumper damage.  We also tried to get in all of our doctor and dentist appointments and I squeezed in a dinner with friends before we left for Michigan again.  Oh and of course we had lots of packing to do.  Once that was all done we headed back to Michigan to celebrate my mom's 84th birthday before heading back down yesterday.  Because we decided to tow our other car down we couldn't drive as fast and so it took us 16 hours.  Needless to say we are all a bit tired, but the little one did great.  We are so lucky he is such a good traveler.  I guess starting him out traveling as a baby has really helped.  Lots to unpack today.  I better run while little one is napping.  More later.

Have a wonderful day.

Preppy Labels

Oh my word I just ordered the cutest address labels from The Preppy Lady Bug.  Aren't they adorable.  I couldn't decide so I ordered all three.  
Are you loving them as much as I am? I can't wait until they arrive.  I needed some labels for our NC house.  We may be in NC a little longer than planned.  My husband has been asked by a company he worked for many years ago to help them work on a project and since he is still friends with all the guys he agreed.  So I will have a crazy week because we need to run back to IL and check on things, take the little one to his doctor and take care of several other things and then head back down.  Oh we are going to make a couple stops in Michigan so the little one can see the granparents too.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend I am off to finish packing while the little one is napping.
