Good End to a Season

The Wolfpack ended their season with a bowl win!

We had a great time cheering on the Wolfpack with good friends at the Belk Bowl last night in Charlotte. Can't wait for next season!


Merry Friday

Heading to see family for Christmas. Hope everyone has safe travels and a very Merry Christmas!


It's Almost Christmas!

And I have pretty yellow flowers blooming in my yard.


Christmas Stockings

Poor Jake just got an old school 99 cents stocking for Christmas this year.

I did at least add his name.  You like the old school glue and gold glitter don't you!?

The hubs and I also need new stockings (love the look of the ones we have, but you can't put anything in them), so I didn't want to spend a lot on a stocking for Jake until I knew what I wanted to do for the whole family.

Here are a few ideas I found on Pinterest.  What kind of Christmas stockings does your family have?

First Round of Christmas

We had our first round of Christmas this past weekend with the hubs' family.  I think it was all a little overwhelming for Jake.  He was a trooper though, he was mixed in the middle of his 5 cousins taring open gifts and it was his bed time.  By the end he was a happy boy playing with his new big boy toys.  I'm looking forward to round two with my family this weekend.


Merry Friday!

We're traveling today to have our first round of Christmas with the hubby's family this weekend. I can't wait to see what Jake does with the craziness of his cousins and all the wrapping paper. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!


Delightfully Personalized

One thing I've been up to the past month is Delightfully Personalized.  I've opened up a little shop with personalized gifts.  I would love if you would check it out!

Pantone Paint

Did you know that Lowe's is now caring Pantone Paint?

I did buy some, so I'll let you know what I think and what I'm painting {hopefully} soon.


Yes Please

But unfortunately Jake will not own this unless it goes on major clearance {not holding my breath}.


Farmers Market

We had a great Saturday!  First, Jake took a nice long morning nap, giving Mommy and Daddy some time to relax.  Then, we took a family trip to the State Farmers Market to pick out a pumpkin.  Lastly, we watch the Wolfpack win a game! I hope you all had a great Saturday.

We couldn't get a picture of Jake looking at us.  All he wanted to do was eat the straw.

Finally looking.

Lunch at the Farmers Market restaurant.

The Nursery {Finally}

I finally got around to taking some pictures of the pretty much completed nursery.  I say pretty much, because there are a few more items I want to hang on the walls and I know I will constantly change things around.  This was definitely one of my favorite rooms in the house to decorate.  Not only because it's my son's room, but kids rooms are just fun to design.  I also loved that I was able to incorporate items from my childhood.  Like the nursery rhyme needlepoints above the crib, my mom made them when she was pregnant  with me.  When I was little I received a music box for my birthday and I was also able to add some of those too.  You'll see a Noah's Ark and a Peter Rabbit music boxes in a picture below.  My mom made the crib skirt (instructions from here) and pillow, my husband built the cornice boards and I upholstered them.  I hope you enjoy the pictures.
