pants (Zara) onsie (Hobby Lobby)
From the very beginning, when this little man started crawling, he has been soooo busy! He is everywhere and in everything thing. And being so busy, some days you just wanna be comfy. I spotted these pants at Zara waaaay back in the spring when we were in Chicago, and fell in love immediately. They’re the perfect hanging out at the house, pulling everything out of all the baskets, rolling around on the floor kinda pants! And the arrows, I’m dying! They remind me so much of the outdoorsy, woodsy feel of Colorado. The little boy in them is pretty cute, as well.
A trip to Atlanta (traveling with a mobile 8 month old……….) and busy days hanging out with cousins at the pool and the zoo, and somehow we’re already in August! When you’re living a countdown until you get your husband back from a deployment, it’s a huge blessing when the days just fly by. I doubt my blog shares the same feelings. Sorry.
Some of my favorite people are in Atlanta, including a soon-to-be-born little boy (give or take a few weeks) and his precious mama. So we threw the mama-to-be a High Tea at Dr. Bombay’s Tea House to celebrate her littlest, and it was delightful. I don’t even like tea, and I might have even lifted my pinky…
Because it was a High Tea, the favors were monogrammed clear mugs filled with teas and coffee. I used a little Martha* to make the monograms, and a whole lot of patience.
With all the showers that happen at this stage in life, it was really fun to have something a little different while still celebrating Ajax’s soon-to-be BFF. And also, I love these ladies! Don’t I have beautiful friends?!
What’s been your favorite way to celebrate milestones in your friend’s lives?

The Fourth of July means BBQ’s with family and friends, summer concerts, lots of cold beer, suntans, and red, white and blue absolutely everywhere! How does that not stack up to being the best holiday out there?! Not to mention there’s an American flag everywhere you look, and I love it! Bring on the fireworks, pasta salad and hot dogs!
Happy Fourth of July. We love you, America!
I love desks. Love. And I love office spaces, which might be weird considering that the houses we’ve live in in Colorado have had zero offices. I love them, but won’t throw out a house just because it doesn’t have a designated office….that’s what Starbucks is for. But I still love them.
In our house in NC, had a built-in office, with floor to ceiling bookshelves. I remember being frustrated trying to figure out what to do with those shelves, but I loved having an office. And then, in our first house here in Colorado, that same desk found a perfect little corner in our den. When we moved to the house that we’re currently in, that gorgeous desk went to live with a friend because we literally had no room for it.
We’ve been in our current home a little over a year, I just figured out what to do with that funny little nook in between our kitchen and living room. A desk, duh!! It a favorite nook of mine that’s come together, and I absolutely love seeing it whenever I’m down stairs- which is almost all the time.
I don’t know if it’s because I’ve LOVE those hanging baskets from IKEA so much that I needed more of them in my house, or the needing a smaller desk narrowed my options easily to this white desk from World Market, or that one of my dining room chairs fits perfectly as a desk chair as well… I don’t know exactly what it is specifically about this little space that I love so much, but I do!
Do you have a favorite space in your house?
