Spoiler alert

Anyone else aware its a mere 4 days until Target releases their Calypso St. Barth's line. 

Apparently this collection has caused quite a rucus in the fashion scene.
The clothing is all 100% cotton, linen, and silk.
YES please!!
{don't you want to schedule a small giveaway just so you can use this bag??}

So.. I did some digging to see just what will be available in stores. did a great article on their "look book" of the collection.

{holy POUF!!}

I am pretty pumped to see what's in store and do a little online shopping as well.

Any of you as excited as I am??
I didn't go as crazy as I would have liked to during the Liberty of London time last spring so I plan on taking full advantage this year!!

What will you be buying??

When I knew I needed something bigger for the main wall in our den I was originally thinking a painting.
Then I saw this guy...

Thanks to the wonderful Reichel @CopyCatChic she posted this and I was able to snag almost the same mirror for 49.95. (i think the style has changed because mine "foils" like shown in the picture above but the new "flatter" style is still available)

Spring Time.

Lately I have felt like the worst mom ever...
We have been so busy with everyday life that I have forgotten to take pictures of my sweet little girl. 
We all know how it is, you have the child, take a picture of every flinch and reaction then they start to get older and you either 
a)forget the camera
b)remember she/he is a toddler and they won't cooperate for a decent photo

Do others of you feel this way too??

All that being said we set out last weekend to a local fotog fave spot and snapped a few quick shots of lil bit.

singing school songs... {zacheus was a wee little man action shot}
definately a "mom stop taking my picture" moment.
she did this on her own... she really makes me laugh.

I am still editing the others... can't wait to share... 
 Have you entered the stila lip glaze giveaway?? it ends this saturday!!

On the way home from a wedding tonight my husband and I were listening to the radio. I can hear a song 100 times and not think about it. 
But right now these words are really rocking me to my core. 
HE is Jealous for ME.
I am truely without words.
We serve such an amazing God.
he calls us, wants us, desires us, and is jealous for us. 
Then he takes our lives and circumstances, mistakes and uses us, molds us and shapes us into who he created us to be.
Just let that marinate as we move into Palm Sunday and realize what our savior did for us many many years ago.

Word Art

Have y'all seen the word art starting to pop up on etsy and in blogosphere??
I liked them but they weren't quite me. 
{via etsy}
{via etsy}
{via facebook}

First thing I did was find a quote I liked to use. 
1.Typed it up in word in a fun font I donwloaded from
2. Painted the background on the canvas.
{now looking back I should have painted the other images underneath but hindsight is 20/20.}

3.Then  I used Mod Podge to glue the pieces of paper on the canvas.
4. Added a few whimsical flowers and squiggles and TADA!!
For those wondering this is an Audrey Hepburn quote and one that I adore.
For beautiful eyes look for the good in others, beautiful lips speak only words of kindness and for poise, walk with the knowledge you're never alone!!!.
LOVE !!!
Happy Day to each and every one of you.
{did you notice someone's room got painted?}

I am overjoyed to now be able to find tulips everywhere. 
When we invited my sister and brother over for lunch today after church I knew this was my excuse to get some fresh flowers.
aren't they pretty??
(notice anything new?? like some botanical prints??)
Don't worry I am headed to the store now to purchase 2 more frames to add to the collection.
I think I have an obsession with picture gallery walls.

Yesterday brought straight line winds and with that an interesting drive home. (I tried to tweet some of the images last night but my twitter account won't let me attach them, hrm?)

Yea there is a house under here!

It's pretty much craziness!!

In other news we got the double door stairs built for the deck so on the project home front we are moving right along!

Now, off to my house to discover if we have power.

Ps. If we reach 100 followers this week I will host another great giveaway!!
