Five Things Friday-Part 4

Here goes folks...

OPI I'm Indi-a Mood For Love.  This is my new spring/summer polish.  I think it's so fresh and bright and will add a great pop of color to any outfit.  I picked mine up at Publix but I know they have it at Amazon too.

Another thing I picked up at Publix, Rice Works Sweet Chili Crisps.  These caught my eye as a great alternative to regular chips (they're made from brown rice) and the flavor just sounded so tasty.  Let me tell you, it was!  These little things are sooo addictive and sooo delicious!  I bought my first bag and then was back the next day picking up three more while they were on sale.  Definitely a new fave!

We have a public library right down the road from us, and I went and finally went and signed up for a card this week.  I hadn't had a library card for years before we moved to Oklahoma, but ever since then, I'm all about them.  I rarely read books more than once so why should I have to buy one every time I want to read?  I don't now thanks to free library cards!  I'm reading my first Marian Keyes book, and so far, I love it.  Yay for free things and great books!

I just recently discovered the website called Hip2Save.  As they describe themselves, they are "not your grandma's coupon site."  Not only do they tell you where to find the best coupons and how to use them, but they are also constantly posting about other great deals and freebies.  I'm a big fan.  You should check them out.

These flowers were featured in a local interior design shop here in Pensacola.  I thought the arrangements were so natural looking while still being elegant.  Aren't they beautiful?


Happy Friday, everyone!  I hope you 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…

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…
