So, I picked this one:

The beach was beautiful yesterday! The Girls & I had a great time.
Plus, they were super tired last night and both were pretty much knocked out by 8pm!
I'm so glad to be taking them to the Jersey Shore. It was one of my favorite things as
a kid, too. I remember many a days spent on the beach with my family!

Ahhhh.. nothing better than your feet in the sand!!
I love it!

WW: Carebear

Little Miss Abbie is completely addicted to in love with Carebears right now.
She wants to watch them on tv (which is no easy task - but we do have DVD's!).
She wants them to go night, night with her.
She wants them to go EVERYWHERE with her!

I admit, he is rather cute.
I think it's a he? Wow, I really don't know... I should totally google that.

Without further ado, meet Carebear.
The love of Abbie's life (this week).

And pay no attention to what little clothes she has on. That's just a whole OTHER story.

Oh, when I pulled out the pretzel bag for snack,
she dropped Carebear like a hot potatoe.
HA! Just kidding.. he was still close by but these pictures were too cute not to share!

Happy Wordish Wednesday!

I Heart Faces -- Water

My baby girl, Abbie enjoying a little Summer fun in the sprinkler.

Go check out more cute water entries over at: 

I Sew Lucky Giveaway!


a cute, charming shop on etsy with the most adorable plush owls you've ever seen!

Shop owner, April Foss is a busy little bee being a wife & mother of 5! But, she has graciously taken some time out with me and kindly offered a giveaway.. which, we will get too!
For now, here is a little more about April:

Our recent home renovations have sparked my love for making and creating. Seeing as how I have 3 daughers, I have a tendancy to gravitate towards girlie things. Because their bedrooms can only hold so many of my handmade items, I have decided to broaden my horizons by opening my own Etsy shop and sharing them with you. I hope you take the time to browse through my items that reflect a small piece of me. These little bits of joy are what keeps me sane. :)

Here are some samples of the cute things April offers over at I Sew Lucky:

Aren't they all just a HOOT!
(you knew I wouldn't get through this post without doing that, right?)
I think any of these owls would make the perfect edition to a kids room,
library, office or even your kitchen.

As promised, April has agreed to giveaway a very special owl
from her shop to one of my readers!  
One lucky winner will receive this adorable owl:

How can you pass up THAT cute face?

Sunday Love / Photo Challenge

We attended our nieces graduation party yesterday.
It was hot!
BUT, they had the most adorable decorations, all hand-made that I just
couldn't stop looking at, admiring and taking pictures of...

{string wrapped around a tree, clothespins to hold pictures}

{mason jars filled with sand & little tea lights}

{tin cans used at vases}

I played around with one shot I took and made this:

What do ya think?
