Sunday Smiles

Sunday’s are meant for reflection, family, fellowship, relaxation and tons of smiles. Today, reflect on all those things during the week that have made you smile or laugh out loud. Enjoy this day knowing that next week carries with it the possibility for anything to happen (and of course the possibility for tons of smiles:)

Weekends are for Family Fun

Target stores had Dr. Seuss storytime today. Since my kids love Dr. Seuss books, we had to go to the event. We started the day with smiles:)

On the way to the event, Jake found the perfect leaf that he decided to take with him to storytime. And of course, we are still all smiles:)

We only had to follow the strollers to find the event. Jake and Marley both listened to ‘Oh! The Places You’ll Go’ and participated in fun games and activities.

After the excitement, we decided to go and have lunch at a great Mexican restaurant in the neighborhood. We all love Mexican food!

After lunch, we told Jake that we would go to the park and the playground before going home. So of course….all smiles:)

The afternoon ended with a walk in the park and fun at the playground.

We had a wonderful family day out and now it is time for a nap.

I hope that you are having a wonderful time with family today! Happy Saturday!!

Painting a Masterpiece on a Rainy Day

It is sometimes hard to keep a 24 month old happy when the weather is bad. He loves to go outside and release tons of energy. So on days when the weather is not cooperating, we have to come up with fun indoor activities. Today, Jake is an artist.

Smiles :) and Cries :(

“It is all about smiles and cries.


You gotta control your smiles and cries because that’s all you have, and nobody can take that away”.

I loved that quote from ‘Training Day’ and Marley is adorable so I could not resist.

Refreshing Lemon Drops

A new year brings new romance and new surprises. A customer told me that her friend is have a lemon and lime themed wedding. I think that this is super creative and very unique. She wanted the shower design to incorporate that theme. She loved this design.

I think that lemons and limes might just be a new trend for the season.
