Playdate with Pearl

Playdate with Pearl

X held hands with a girl today.



He hung out with his bloggy friend, Pearl. It’s wonderful to have met so many amazing people through blogging (and instagram) that also have kiddos near X’s age.
When we got pregnant we were overjoyed at the thought of having a kiddo…but, sad he wouldn’t have other kiddos to be around.
Kira, Pearl’s mom and writer of Rain OR Shine, was one of the first Portland bloggers to reach out to me. Just so happens that Pearl came along just a little bit after X. It has been a blast getting to see her grow up (via instagram, blogs, and play-dates) alongside my little guy. And, it is great to have another new mom to talk to about baby problems, frustrations, joys, and questions.



I can’t wait for the next Play-date!

CRAFT Pal Exchange April

CRAFT Pal Exchange April

This past month (April) I participated in the C.R.A.F.T. Pal package exchange. I had so much fun when I participated this past February that I signed up again.

This month my pal was Cindy from CinSarah blog and Blessed Design Studio. She sent me this lovely package:



She sent me tissue paper, painted clothespins, a lovely necklace, cute scrapbook accessories, pink & white straws, and a cute print from her etsy shop!



The print up on my mantel at home.

Here is what I sent her:



I was obviously in a party supply creating mood. I sent her a hand-sewn banner, rose cupcake toppers, and hand-lettered invitations for a future event. It was a lot of fun to send!

The C.R.A.F.T. (creating really awesome free things) package exchange is hosted every other month. Sign up over HERE!

Weekend Update: Stylin and Sunshine

Weekend Update: Stylin and Sunshine
I’m too tired to write much today. 
It was a wonderful weekend. 
Friday night I worked and had a pretty great evening.
Saturday was a grey day, but the overcast was wonderful for my photo shoot. 
Sunday I worked at the bar during the day…. 
but, it was so sunny outside that no one wanted to come inside to eat pasta and drink wine.
It was a very slow day. 
That evening I was able to enjoy the sunshine though as friends came over to join us for a 40th birthday dinner. We had steak, chicken, veggies, and more yumminess out on the grill. 
And, Monday I opened my Etsy store
It was a good weekend. 
How was your weekend? 
Do anything fun!?
Here is some photographic proof of the fun weekend I had:
