 good morning sunshine....i have to keep saying that to myself b/c i am far from being a sunshine this AM.  walker is "off the bottle" therefore he woke up at 5:30 this morning.  trying to be cheery but all i really want to do is crawl back into bed.....or pour my 3rd cup of coffee....

just in case....

you felt the need to make those cookies from friday's post......
i did and they didn't disappoint, well my shorts were a little tighter and that might have been disappointing  but besides that they were pure heaven.  best- hot out of the oven and with a big glass of milk, followed by a nice, long nap.  enjoy :)
ps. love the picture easy to follow!!

Oh my....i'm still obsessed with a good monogram.  seriously, can't get enough of them.  so much so that i once thought i wanted to buy a commercial monogramming machine and open a store. i googled it and found out that they cost as much as a very nice car.  and then i could not ignore reality- i have never even sewed a button on a was i suppose to operate a machine?!!  but i still can be obsessed with them.  i need those chairs in my life.

walker happen to turn 1 over the weekend....we had a little b'day party for him on saturday.  he is such a love bug...he, hands down, gives the best hugs.  kind of hurts my heart that he is already one.   
on thurs i called my mom and begged her to come a day early to help me out....poor thing, i think i worked her to death....moms are the best.  b/c of her, i got my mirror painted and a party cranked out (even if all of our work was in vain b/c it rained 20 minutes into the party and everything had to be brought inside).

day dreaming vs. reality

this blog serves as a place to store beautiful images.....
but it's not my real world. my real world is quite different, especially w/ two kiddos in the mix.  being home with them, trying to work, and preparing for a party we are having here on sat. is almost impossible...why, b/c i have to chase this kiddo around.  and he is into everything:

right after this pic was taken, he leaned in and did a handstand into the bath tub, no water was in there.  and i was right behind him to recuse him.
i start my day w/ a plan, a list of things i have to get done....
today i thought would be the day to paint this mirror that i got when i was in charleston....
luckily my sweet neighbor invited tay to the zoo....walker just went down for his nap and i am off to "try" and get a coat of paint on this....and answer my backed up email list....and try and shower....and clean up all of the toys that have taken over my LR/ DR......

so when y'all email me and say i don't know how you do it w/ two kids...well, i am by no means a "master" as you can definitely tell.....

for my b'day all i wanted was to go be a tourist in charleston.  warren and i went and spent a night downtown in a beautiful hotel, ate yummy food, and had some celebratory glasses of wine.  but my favorite part was saturday- walking down king street, going to the farmers market, eating brunch and hopping in the ocean at sullivan's.  it was so much fun that i have decided that is how i want to spend all of my b'days from here on out!!
*UPDATE: when we were at the farmer's market there was the cutest girl selling these woodblock prints and she just happened to have one turquoise hanging swing like the one i just hung on my porch.  i thought i would never find her card but i got something better, an email from her!!  yippee- go check out stacey's site- perlaAnne...great prices, super cute prints (i bought 3 b/c i couldn't make up my mind), and check out the background in some of her prints- i spy angie hranowsky's house!!
