Shag Nationals Shout Out

I realize that "Cook Click Dance Baby" has been SUPER neglected 
in the Dance department.  
Truth is, it's kind of hard for me to take pictures of myself dancing and I'm sensitive to the fact that other dancers may not be excited to find pics of THEM dancing on MY blog. 
Furthermore, I NEVER like videos of myself dancing 
( I find mistake after mistake after mistake...)
so I don't post videos either.  
I am way excited to, again, be included in this year's 
National Shag Dance Team!
Shag Team is SOOOOO much fun for me and I can't wait to get started.  
LOTS of fun times ahead!

No, I don't dance in these.  
...but Jason does!

Griffin and I are looking forward to our little mini-vacation this week.  
He wants to run around on the farm and I want to go somewhere and wear this:

Simple pleasures in life!

What's a summer birthday dinner without Deviled Eggs?

...displayed on my grandma's plate, no doubt!

A Day at the Beach

I really love this shot!
The little boy isn't mine, but he was so peaceful and happy
....and in my shot! 
So, I took it. :-)

Mommy's Model

I've just given in to the fact that all my pictures of Griffin will be 'action shots' until he's at least 4. 
I haven't shot this much action since high school - 
hello, football games!

Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to the best dad ever!

Thank you for ALL you do!!

And, to my dad.
I hope your days are filled with long afternoons at the pavilion, lots of seafood, pepsi's, and Duck's french fries.

Our nightly activity is picking up the apples that have fallen off our apple tree.  
I have to make something with all of these apples!!

Kitchen Island

For sure, no one will ever accuse me of being afraid of a 
paint brush.  
This kitchen was really wearing on me and I'd tried lots of different 'tricks,' but nothing really helped.  
Until I finally decided (yesterday) that the island was bringing me down.  
Insert quick trip to Lowe's and can of Ocean Surf - 
we're all much happier!

Thanks, Novogratz

I'm so happy with my interpretation of the front porch curtains previously spied on the Novogratz's porch.  
Thanks for the inspiration!

This would be a great time to point out that this house has zero curb appeal.  
In fact, when I first showed it to Jason, he said,
"You want to look at THAT house?"
But after looking at it online, I knew there was something we were missing. 
I was right - the 14 ft ceilings and expansive interior won us over immediately.  
I love this old house!!

And, I left out one of my absolute favorite features:

Love, Love, Love!

Thomas and Tweetsie were a great combination!
The NC mountains made a fantastic background for these pics I took of Thomas.  
...which may end up in frames for G's room.
