It's a New Week

It's a new week and I didn't accomplish nearly as many things as I'd hoped last week.  
Here's a little beach inspiration to get motivated!

Sunday, July 29, 2012


After several days of being tied to the couch, I'm finally feeling a little better.  
Not great,
but there's definitely an improvement.  
And, I'll take it!

Rocky Mtn. Spotted Fever Whaaat?

Not sure how this happened, 
but the Dr. thinks I have Rocky Mtn. Spotted Fever.  
What I do know is IT'S NOT FUN!

Hope you're having a fun day for me!

Let me just tell you how successful my day-trip to Charleston was!
There were great sales in every store so I picked up several cute things on the cheap.  

I got a super cute pool bag here:

I also found an amazing pair of pants here:

and a cute little necklace here:

Fun stuff!!

I'm hoping the fever has gone and the little guy feels much better today.

Getting Back

Mini-vacations are good, 
but getting back home is good, too.  

Happy to be home and ready to start editing my pics from last week!  
(This is one of the many lovelies I found on our day trip.)

Road Trip

Today, we're headed out on a short little road trip.  
I love a road trip!
...especially short ones.  
The camera is coming along and I hope to find lots more shots like this:
(since everything in my yard has stopped blooming.)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

If I Should Get Lost

If you lose me today, this would be a good place to start looking.  

....not actually IN the Lifeguard stand, but close to it.

One of my favorite things about the summer is I have time to cook.
...and I do enjoy it.
...except when we spend too much time at the pool,  
then something quick has to fill in.

Kitchen In Progress

I've been 'stuck' in this room for quite a while,
but I'm very happy with the way it's shaping up.  
Making progress!

Beach Scenes

Here are a few more shots from my early morning beach shoot last week. 
We didn't make it to the beach this weekend, but I'm ready to return soon!

We Interrupt This Program...

Today, please ignore me as I pause from posting pretty things 
and photographs of one particularly amazing little boy 
to let you know that we've been without tv for over a week now.
10 DAYS, Y'all!!!
 I'm not blaming it entirely on this house I love so much,
but when the house was built in 1879, they did not make arrangements for wireless internet and/or DISH network!  
Just sayin.  
So, in the past week I've learned that I REALLY can do without television.  
We're really not big tv watchers anyway and we NEVER watch movies.  
(other than The Hunger Games - had to see it, they shot a lot of it just down the street.)
But, this week I REALLY missed:


You see, Matt and I have been together since college.  
He gives me the teensy bit of news I need to carry on my day while Larry Sprinkle advises me on my wardrobe choice.
Hunter rainboots or Tory flats?  You get the picture.  

Here's hoping that next week will bring a little Matt and Larry into my life.
I need to know the weather!!

To Remember

I want to remember that at age 2, Griffin:
Tells me, "Look at my words," when I'm not listening. 
Sometimes calls me "Hollis" like his daddy.  
Thinks his daddy's name is "Husband" because that's what I call him. 
LOVES watching Humpty Dumpty on my phone.
...or Old McDonald. 
...or Barney singing Old McDonald.
Can tell you that his hair looks 'a little cray cray.' 
(Thanks, Morgie)
And, loves to give kisses especially when they're a little sloppy.  

Happy Weekend!!

Orchid Love

This little beauty has been sprucing up my kitchen for quite some time now and I do like it!

Hang Worthy

Sadly, I take millions of pictures, but I'm so bad at displaying them.  So they mainly just sit on my computer. 
This weekend, I set out on a specific mission to capture a few beach images worthy of hanging in our beach house.  
This shot is definitely top on my list to frame and hang.

An Airlie Moon

One of my very favorite stores in Wilmington is Airlie Moon.  
It is 'beach-style done right' with a lovely mixture of old and new.  
On my last visit, we lingered a little too long at dinner so they were closed when we arrived.
...but there's ALWAYS time for window shopping!

Monday House Inspiration

I've been looking for a little "pretty house inspiration" 
and this is one of my faves for the morning.  

(via Pinterest, where else???)

Happy Monday!

What A Week

Is anyone else worn out from all this celebrating?  
I'm ready for a day that looks like this:

I need a day or two to regroup before more fun!

Parties Galore!

Who knew that 4th of July on a Wednesday would be so much fun?
I'm loving it, there are parties on each weekend AND 
during the week!  
Pool parties, Lake parties, and Beach parties,
