Rock On!

I'm convinced Griffin will either be a rock star or farmer when he grows up.  
He got quiet one day last week and this is how I found him. 

(Excuse the bad pics - this room is a dungeon and I was trying to get the shot before he moved.)

He was totally into The Today Show's Pink Concert.  
After the weather, I'd turned the sound off, but the tv screen was still on and G spotted the guitar.  

In other news, it's amazing what you can do with 5 days in your week!
For the past three weeks, we've been traveling and I've really only had 3 or 4 days in my work week.  
Throw in the added work of packing/unpacking and I haven't done anything around the house.  
However, I'm feeling pretty accomplished right now, I've switched out my summer and fall in the closet AND caught up on all the laundry.
It's gonna be a great weekend!

We cleaned out our garage a few weeks ago and I found a box of books I'd forgotten were in there.  
They were left in the garage because I don't really have a great way of storing them in this house, and I still don't, but now they are in arms' reach so I can pull them out every now and then.  

This is one of my favorites, I brought it back as a "souvenir" from her Malibu store.  

Here's another of my "new" discoveries. 
Not only is this book a good read, it looks beautiful on any surface you lay it on!

Mum's The Word

Fall lovin'

This weekend is really my only chance to work on the "Fall Front Porch."
Since my neighbors are Halloween CRAZY, and I'm not good at Halloween, it's a daunting task.  

Oh, and in case you're wondering, "Husband" ordered Halloween candy last week.  
It's kind of a big deal 'round here.

What Are They?

I love these crazy plants!
...but what are they?

I spotted them in Atlanta and even pulled in to ask the shop owner what they were.  
He was clueless, but I did get pictures of them as a reminder.  

I think they're so fun and they have mad, crazy character!

Really Awesome

 You know what's really awesome?
It's REALLY awesome to have friends who have amazing, fancy cameras and will let you play with them.  
...and are ready for impromptu beach shoots at a moments notice.  

Yay for good friends and fun, fast pictures!  
Just imagine what we could do with a little time.  

Lord knows, the momma shoots PLENTY of G pics, but it's really nice to have a few shots of just me and the hubs.  

Thanks for letting us "play pictures" with you!
Now start editing, you've got work to do.

It's here!

Happy Fall to You!!

So, to usher in the season, I did nothing that applies to fall!
I did this instead.

The beauty of going to the coast in September is you have the beach to yourself! 
Just me and the birds.  

In other news, this weekend marks the 12th anniversary of when I met my husband.   
12 years?!?!
We officially met and started dating at Fall SOS 2000.  
I snatched him up VERY quickly, 
how many shag dancers with Harvard degrees do you know?  
Husband, you rock!

Thursday is the new friday

I love my Thursdays!

Griffin and I have nowhere to be and I need this day just to catch up. 
...and play.  
...and breathe.  

I hope your Thursday is as good as mine!

DIY Cord Cover

I'd stared at these bare cords for long enough and finally took the initiative to make a cord cover on my own.  
It was very simple, now I'm not sure why it took me so long in the first place!

Naked Niche

"Naked niche" is my new favorite phrase that I've borrowed from one of my home design books.
It inspired me to take a new look at the naked niche's in my own home and this one was an easy fix.

Back To Practice

Step brush back and shift and stutter back heel toe kick. 
Back and shift and back and side.
Brush and step kick flyback and step. &1&2&3&4 &6.

I'll get right on that!  

To change the subject, nobody's any happier than me to see these folks back on my tv each Sunday;
Cam Newton

Cris Collinsworth 

Football is back and I'm so excited!  I've missed you.

A Little More Dolly

Here are a few more shots of our fun in TN.  

(The amount of train pics I'm assembling is a little crazy.)

Have a great weekend!

Friday All Over The Place

It's Friday, yay!
 I'm a little bit scattered around today trying to clean, pack, and do laundry.  
Speaking of laundry, I think G and J change clothes when I'm not looking.  How can 3 people have so much laundry?!?!  

 {Pinterest, duh.}

Gotta go - lots to do before the weekend!

Make It Happen

 I'm certain this little piece of propaganda is meant for the upcoming elections, 
but I'm using it as my own personal motivation.

Candle Perfection

Ok, so I really am a little bit of a candle freak,  
but I think my little obsession has led me to the perfect scent.  
On my Atlanta visit, I stalked out this store and fell in love with their signature scent.  
I'll be ordering more!

Bedroom Inspiration

I really like this mixed-up bedroom and I'm using it for inspiration to get to work on my own, sad, neglected boudoir.

Holly Would, Dollywood

Boy, how children change vacations!
This weekend, we've traded in our Ireland, Belize, and Puerto Rico trips for something a little more...
And it doesn't get any more American than Dollywood!  
I'm training myself to utilize the mountains, we live so close that we really have to go more often.  

Here's G on our first "Griffin Trip."

Dollywood is such a sweet place for the little ones.  
I've never been when it was crowded, Griffin rode ALL he wanted to, and he even knew the sweet ride operators by name.

Lots Of Life

These flowers have lived FOREVER!  
They really were in my house for almost a month before it occurred to me to snap a few shots of them.  
And, I picked them up at the local Food Lion of all places.  
Food Lion = Fresh Flowers. 
Who knew?!?
