Spell It With Style!

A wonderfully kind blog reader Brook, made this name sign for Sarah Kate's new room. I LOVE it! The girls were soooooo thrilled that we had gotten a package delivered to the door. The sign was beautifully wrapped. We opened it together and I ran to Sarah Kate's room and hung it up right then and there. I may try it in a different place, but I wanted something this cute up immediately!
Brook was so sweet to work with. She has lots of fabrics to choose from. I hated to add a new pattern to the room, so Brook let me send her Sarah Kate's curtain fabric as the background.

Check out her website! Brook has some really cute chalkboards she has done too!
Thanks Brook, you made our day!

That is precious!!

This is so sweet!

I've been following a few Southern blogs for a while now, and really love the whole idea of monogramming and name plaques in the children's room etc. It's not done at all over here in Australia, and yet your name is so important- it connects you to your family, sets you apart from others, and shows you are special to God who knew you before you were even conceived.

I may try to start a few trends over here. My father has written a poem for each of our children after their births, and we have framed them to hang near their beds.

Bless you

So cute! Can I ask, where did you get the super cute paper lanterns (I think that is what they are called) that are hanging in the pic too?

Thanks - Stacey

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
