Give It Up For The Pups

I have to take a minute and brag about Remington's latest accomplishments.  This week (in the span of about three days) he learned how to lie down on command.  We had already taught him to sit, but it took a lot longer for him to master, so we were shocked when he nailed his new trick so quickly.  And today, he got into the bathtub all by himself!  This might not sound like a big deal to some, but Remi has always HATED baths.  So much so, that he goes and hides in his cage anytime he hears the shower turn on.  Normally, we have to pick him up and carry him into the bathroom to place him in the tub.  But today, with a little coaxing, he got in all by himself.  He still didn't look too happy about it, but hey, we're making progress!

It's amazing how the tiniest things can make me so happy.  If I get this excited about what my dog can do, I can only imagine how you parents must feel about your kids!

Whether it's your kids or animals that make you smile with joy, here is a great idea for a way to honor them...and add a little fun artwork to your walls.


I found this fabulous idea awhile back (before Remi came along) and stashed it away in my "great ideas to use later" file.  The fabulous girls at Simply Bloom Photography came up with this idea to show off their pups in their office space.  If you can't already tell from this image, this photographer duo is extremely talented and creative.   Their amazing knack for capturing modern-vintage imagery has led them all around the world shooting weddings and portraits.  Not too shabby for some girls who hail from Huntsville, Alabama.  Check out their website.  I promise you will leave inspired!

Happy Friday everyone!  Me and the hubby are off to Dallas for a long weekend!  
Here are a few things on my agenda:
1.  Go to Gigi's cupcakes...I am a Sprinkles girl, but I've heard so much about this place, it would be an injustice not to check it out. ;)
2.  Grab lunch at Banana Leaf, a Thai restaurant in North Dallas that has the BEST cajun fried rice I've ever had in my life.
3.  Hit up Wisteria Outlet...yes I've mentioned this before, and we did go...but it wasn't open.  I will not be defeated again!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :)


Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print.


A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos.

An antique baby basket helped house the gifts.
The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee.
The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar. 
And of course no shower is complete without a little something sweet. These b…

Planes or Pearls? Gender Reveal Party

On Friday, June 28th, Jon and I headed out to see the gender of Baby Reutter.  Jon wanted to find out as soon as possible, and I wanted to wait to be surprised with everyone at the reveal party the next day. So we decided that he would find out and be the one set up the "big reveal."  Baby Reutter didn't want to cooperate on the first attempt but after some cold water, walking around and sweet patience from the ultrasound tech, we got the "money shot."  I'm not going to lie, it was a bit torturous at first to not be in the know with Jon, but after the first few hours, I was good to go and so excited about the surprise for the next day.  Here we are about to head out to the reveal appointment.
Now for the reveal party on Saturday...As mentioned before, I wanted a unique theme for the party.  Since Jon is a pilot, I thought planes would be a cute idea for a boy.  For the girl, I thought of pearls; they're sweet, feminine and also happen to be my birthsto…

Giraffe 1st Birthday

Over two months later, I'm finally getting around to posting on my nephew Cohen's first birthday!  Because he was born just six days before Christmas, it was important to my sister, Meredith, to have a party to make him feel special, separate of the normal seasonal celebrations.  And I'm always up for a planning a good party!

Since Cohen was little baby, he has loved giraffes.  First introduced with the paper mache bust hanging over the changing pad in his nursery(here), my sister says he's been a fan ever since.  Using that as the inspiration, the party planning began.  Meredith found an invitation she liked at Tiny Prints and thus the color palette of green, yellow and brown was established.


Cohen wore a monogrammed yellow chevron coverall on the big day, and the cheerful pattern was also used throughout the party.  To create a prominent backdrop on the fireplace mantel, we covered a remant piece of beadboard with chevron fabric.  It made a big statement with little…
