A Family Addition

Well, no one has called to claim the little dog I found in the Hobby Lobby parking lot on Tuesday.  I've called every dog agency in town, placed an ad in the paper and posted her picture on the Facebook page for Enid lost/found dogs.  But that's okay.  We've decided that she will be better loved by us anyway :)

So this morning we took Little Bit, who now has a real name, to the vet to get her all checked out.  The doctor estimated that she's about one year old.  We got her shots all done, clipped her nails and picked up some heartworm medicine for her as well.  She is good to go!  She's even sporting a new collar, name tag and has her very own bed.

Here she is lounging in her favorite spot in the living room last night :)

And here she is now in her very own bed!

Of course I couldn't resist picking up this mini toy as well.  It's just like one her big brother Remington has, only the mini size :)

And she also have some new jewelry that proudly proclaims her new name, Riley.  She's been a great addition to the family and Remington is so happy to have a new friend.  We were always planning on getting another dog AFTER we moved, but apparently God had different plans for us.  And we're so happy with them :)

Speaking of puppy dogs, look at this Playful Puppy Party featured on Amy Atlas Events.
 It's full of creative ideas!  See the rest of the images and details here
 I hope you all have a wonderful 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…

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…

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right?

Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect.

I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here.

Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here.

The smash cake table with our go-to milk jars (Starbuck frappuccino glasses) with paper straws.  The tree slab plate they are sitting on was also used at our wedding.  The smash cake was a $10 cake from Public and Auden LOVED …
