Woof Wednesday

As many of you know, our sweet fur baby, Remington, was adopted from an SPCA shelter in town.  If it weren't for them, he would have been euthanized months before we even got to meet his sweet face.  I am forever grateful to the people who devote their time and money to saving animals.  And now I want to help too!

Woof Wednesdays is a non-profit organization that brings awareness to shelter dogs by posting their pictures and information on Wednesdays.  You can post via facebook or on your blog.  Their motto is "No paw left behind."  I hope you'll join us in the fight for animals that can't fight for themselves!

This week I'm bringing to you Rusty, the Rhodesian Ridgeback mix.  


Rusty is a shy, sweet, sensitive fellow. He spent one month in boarding school with Ralph Gibson, a well-known trainer in Alabama. Ralph brought Rusty out of a submissive state and gave him confidence. Rusty knows commands, and is obsessed with shaking hands.  Not aggressive. Rusty is fearful of small children and wary of strangers. It takes Rusty a while to build trust, but once bonded, he is your shadow, a true loyal friend.
He's a smart fella too :)

He is neutered, house trained and up-to-date on shots.  For more information on Rusty go here.
Location: Alabaster, AL
Adoption fee: $80-100, to cover a small portion of the vetting fee
Adoption Group:  Last Chance Dog Rescue Alabama

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…

Christmas Trees-Part 2 (Rustic and Coastal)

Here are my other favorite Christmas tree styles-rustic and coastal (since we're moving to Florida).  Enjoy!

Use tea stained manila tags to create ornaments.  So simple, yet so cute.

This rustic tree has just the right mix of gold, silver and burlap...my faves!  The stockings are adorable too.

Christmas at the beach anyone?  Starfish make the perfect adornments for a coastal holiday.

Coastal blues bring this tree (and these presents) to life in this traditional home. 

This tree is full of more starfish and the hydrangeas and chartreuse color palette remind me of my wedding :)

Now to decide which style to use...or perhaps a mix of the styles is in order!  Do you change the theme of your tree every couple of years?

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…
