Halloween deal!

Hello how are you??

I am feeling the need to rhyme. You see baby read a cat in the hat before naptime!!

That's not why I am here, to your dismay... I found another great deal!!

"what's that you say??"

Halloween items on clearance at Target you see,

stickers and plates for a steal, Yippee!!

All of this for $4.50, i will put some of it up, you see!

But the plate it will sit by my sink for now,
A measly $1.25 adding some spook and wOW!!

Thanks for humoring me!! Hope all of you are having great weeks!!

Oh, and detective Luke says hey!! (He will sniff out the situation!)

If my Walls could talk.

A couple of weeks ago we were doing some "cleaning up" around the house. 

Since we do not have a home phone we thought we would eliminate the tacky phonejack faceplate.

Look what we discovered underneath.

If my walls could talk they would tell me a scary scary story of the 1960's.

Thought yall would enjoy seeing this. 

can i just go ahead and say i am sooo ready to change this paint color!!! OVER IT!!

I have recently found these photos and wanted to share.

Each one of them inspires me to keep going in our home...
holy canole is this room not amazing... 

With a small facelift to the dining room and the screened in porch nearly painted I am finally seeing a little progress on some very large projects!
you have no idea how bad this makes me want to finish the porch....
we spend alot of time out there and I cant wait for it all to be sanded and white and "safe" for my family.
it still kinda reminds me of a dark dungeon right now. haha
would really love one of these antique baby scales to decorate in a nursery one day.
And just because i am in a "holiday-ish" mood I am probably going to make one of these for the door in my kitchen leading into the backyard, i mean hey... i already have some of these things laying around my house.

Hope each of you are having a great week. 

I am in "Baby Shower Mode" and can't wait to share this fun party with yall over the weekend.

A couple weeks ago one of my mom's dear friends from Florida wanted to meet us for a fun weekend in Nashville!!

First place we met up was Loveless Cafe!!

Everything was sooo good, and the baby even ate well.

{why is it under 2 yr. olds never consistently eat well?}

We did some sight seeing before turning in, so we could gear up for a fun filled day!!

The next morning we met up to go to a fun craft's festival in a park near where my mom's friend's daughter lives.. (too confusing?)
AC calling to see if the girls were on their way to get us.
After she confirmed they were around the corner, we were all set!
Is she not the cutest thing you have EVER seen??

Sweet baby Dillion went with us and she was a show stopper.. everyone wanted to take a minute to love on her!

We left the crafts fair and headed to something I rarely get to do.... 


Look at all this fabric?? 

wonder what I am going to be making with what i bought?? make sure to check out my other blog...

isn't their inventory amazing??
only complaint I have with this store is their prices were anywhere from 2.50 to 3.00 higher than other stores. However, most of the fabrics they offered I had only seen online and I can rationalize the upcharge due to not having to ship and being able to actually touch the fabric!!
Here is my friend attempting to pose with baby girl.

Once we left there we went to Las Paletas Gourmet Popsicles. 

It was a really neat tiny shop where you basically walk in and decide,{quickly} what you want and they grab it out of the freezer and you pay. They had everything from rose petal popsicles to cucumber. I mean everything... we played it safe and ordered watermelon, chocolate mint, and rocky road. 
As you can see someone stole my ice cream bar!!
Every bite was amazing!! and well worth the $2.50 a piece.
Mom and her sweet friend!! 

After watching the bama game and the florida game it was time for bed. 

baby loved her snuggle time with grammy.
They look so much alike its scary!!

We ended our fun weekend with brunch at Noshville. 

It was great!!!

Omg where has my month of September gone? And now October??

Good thing I have had my phone in hand to document our lives..

Thought I would share a few photos of what we have been up to.

Here are some pics of my classroom before school started.

I will update as the seasons change. Right now we have leaves hanging everywhere.

Ac discovered the car grocery carts and insists we ride in them.

She discovered daddy's ears while shopping..

And how to beat on daddys head like it's a drum.

And how crazy fun it is to ride with the windows down.

She got to play with our friend Candace's new puppy,Elle.

And I think her fave is playdoh. Not too great to eat but hours of enjoyment!!

And of course computer games to learn the Alphabet!

And the best thing we have learned is if you make a mess you must clean up!!

Thanks for sticking with me through all these pics... Almost 3 months worth!!

Be back later with lots more!

What to do for two??

In a few short weeks my little baby will be two... I can hardly believe it...

I have been really busy with the Preppie Peonie orders but wanted to show you guys my inspiration for AC's birthday invitation.

Can't wait to show you how they turn out...

With my day off tomorrow I hope to catch up on some blogging, painting the screenporch,
finish out baby's halloween costume, ya know that kinda stuff.

Oh and if you have a free moment... say a prayer for my husband. 

At 8 am he goes to sit for the first portion of the CPA exam.

I am praying he is able to have clarity, and focus, and take each question one at a time.

Hope each of you have a great start to your week!!

Okay..... time for me to reveal what I have been up to lately.....

You all know I have a degree in Fashion Design....

You all know in June I became pre-school teacher/ SAHM....

But, did you know I also began sewing for people... other than just the Greek letter shirts?

well.... after a very busy summer behind a 1990 Bernina, Preppie Peonie has become a full time business venture....

In July I used B's Blog Boutique to help us in our re-branding process.

Here is our new look.
And in August I purchased a gently used INCREDIBLE embroidery machine!!
{can't wait to share those projects with yall}

I have been really busy this week gearing up for our first fall trunk show at the Phi Mu house.

Tomorrow is the big day and I can't wait to share how it goes...
