Warm up to summer

Saturday we were invited by our dear friends for a swim and bbq party! Kids had a blast and it was a great way to warm up to summer time.

Saylor made sure she had my full attention every time she would go down, I think she was in the middle of counting on this one :)

Sawyer was all smiles
taking a yogurt break, swimming is tough work!..

Saylor is doing great in the water and will be swimming by summers end. Can't wait for the official kick off to summer...Memorial Weekend at the Beach!

A room with a view

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has a file on there computer or a folder tucked away with ideas and dreams of how you want your house to look like or feel like. My folder(s) seems to get bigger and bigger all the time.

My new favorite show is "9 by Design" on Bravo. I'm no interior decorator, nor will I ever be one or have the talent for it, but I appreciate beautiful home design inside & out.

When I came across this picture it went straight into my home folder. I've always loved the look of these chairs and the exaggerated drapery and don't get me started on wallpaper. Yes I know it's so circa 1980 :) I'm a huge fan of it, but our walls are pretty heavily textured though I did find out that with backing paper it might just be possible! If we decide to do the addition on the house some day (i.e. more kids=more space) (another i.e...no I'm not announcing anything:) this kitchen table would be loverly! and I know now that with little ones dark cushions is the only way to go and I love the contrast of dark and light. Nate Berkus would be disappointed, but my flowers in the vase would probably be silk and not fresh. I'm not Oprah!:))

The past couple of weeks I've been doing some home projects...I'll share some pictures soon.

Life's Good

Mother's Day was absolutely wonderful. As a girl growing up you always wonder and imagine what life will be like when you have kids. There is no Motherhood 101 book to explain how it all works, it's a daily quest and you learn as you go. I am pretty sure every mother wonders at some point why their child chose them and what they can do for their child that no one else can.Saylor & Sawyer have already taught me more life lessons then any professor could teach, to not sweat the small things but to embrace them and most of all the meaning of unconditional love! My mother's day was memoriable and beautiful.

wow he's a keeper
i'm lucky these two call me mommy

my two cute boys
it was basically impossible to get a good picture with mommy, but i just love saylors pose

Mommy Daughter day

It's not very often that I'm able to spend alone time with just one child. Saylor & I were able to have a mommy daughter day, so I took her to Magic Kingdom, and what a magical time we had! She met the princesses for the first time, and grinned from ear to ear! It was so special to share the day with Saylor. I took advantage of every minute!
