I love weekends. And since I can’t seem to come up with any juicy design posts how about a really long post full of more randomness from the past couple of weekends?
Last weekend, or was it the weekend before last? I’m not sure. It was Memorial Day Weekend and Chance’s birthday. So we went on the boat and spent a lot of time together as a family on the beach. It was really wonderful. I live in paradise, yet I rarely take time to soak it all in. I hadn’t been to the beach in over a year, nor on the boat in three years! Sad. I live on the gulf coast of Florida, the “Emerald Coast”. If you haven’t been here you should plan a trip. It’s beautiful. Here’s the birthday boy (who needs a hair cut… but I’m his stylist and well, you see how that’s working out).
Last week two of my dear friends (sisters) from high school visited and I was able to sneak away for a wonderful dinner with them! (My shirt doesn’t have a wire hoop, that was the wind.) Cameron, Whitney and I played field hockey and tennis together in high school and then went off to Auburn together. There’s just something so wonderful and comforting about old friends. We would often carpool the 11 hours between Louisville, Kentucky and Auburn, Alabama- you gotta like someone to spend that much time in the car together. And we did it multiple times a year.
In other news, I finally convinced Chance to come hang up our light that’s been collecting dust for over a year. I should have wired a light up in that spot during construction, but since I didn’t we’ll deal with the cord cover. Don’t look in the background… we need approximately 2,000 more square feet.
And more from the home front, this little nugget has learned that she can use her stool (thank you Auntie Marla, this stool was your idea- Sloaney loves it!) to reach whatever she fancies. Yesterday I turned around and she was helping herself to pita chips. Last week I caught her flipping lights on and off, she was so proud of herself. I am so proud of her, she is a sweet little rascal.
Then there is the morning “peek a boo” routine she plays with my shower curtain while I get ready. (We are both getting our hair cut this afternoon!)
Also, a few weeks ago Allison and I went to Houston to check on a really fun project. While we were there we were able to lunch with my dear sweet Courtney… she’s pregnant and I am so thrilled for her. She’s been busy with a new business venture… check out her gorgeous baby blankets (new website coming soon, but feel free to email her if you are interested!). They aren’t for sale online yet… but when they are I will let you know.
We also had dinner with our wonderful (fun and funny) clients (who would not get in the picture!) and Megan Davis (who is also a client). You know Megan… Megan of Toast & Laurel, our go-to girl for paper goods. We love her!
Speaking of Toast & Laurel, she just hooked us up with a big ole stamp for the bags we mail samples out in. (Copied you Marla Carter.)
And last but not least, guess who installed Words With Friends but can’t take the heat… !!
