OMG I had so much fun today:) My mom's work had a special trick or treating event for family and friends. She works for a movie theater company, so all the candy is provided by concessions. SWEET! I promise to share with Savi:) She did so good and seemed to really have a good time. I so loved taking her. Tomorrow night we will do some more!

Friend Makin Monday!

Monday, October 26, 2009

This week at Amber's Blog for "Friend Makin Monday" we are talking about….If life were a movie, which movie would you want to live in?

Hmmm I'm going to say Steel Magnolias.
This is one of my favorite movies. I love living in a big populated city full of Starbucks and Targets. But sometimes I get a little idea that maybe I would love the small town life like in Steel Magnolias. Everyone knows everyone and there gossip:) You shop at the local Piggly Wiggly and there are big town events. (Also like Gilmore Girls…love it!) Anyway…that movie is a true southern small town full of ups and downs and I love a movie that can make me laugh and cry. I think I could live in that movie in my southern house eating some fried green tomatoes;)

This week at KellysKorner we are showing fall decorations. I already did a small post about this but the hubby took some way better pictures today so I decided to do another. Never enough fall decor right?

This is our dining room table. I am kinda dying to host Thanksgiving or something of the sort so I can make soup and put them in mini pumpkins. How cute would that be! I saw it at Williams Sonoma and now I am obsessed!

Charlie's grandmother gave me this last year and you can change out the little plates for each holiday. I need to work on getting more plates for each occasion, but I love it!

Friend Makin' Monday!

Monday, October 19, 2009

This week I am participating in Friend Makin' Monday! Amber is the host! This weeks topic is Things That Make You Happy.....

One of the biggest things that makes me happy is this little girl:) We played on the game shelf on Saturday. I can't wait to play Candyland, Hungry Hippos, Memory, etc. with her one day!

I have been searching for weeks for a daybed comforter or quilt that is fun and bright colors and doesn't look like I stole it from my grandmothers house. Do you know how ridiculously hard this has been??!! Mind you...I also don't want to spend a small fortune. The daybed is in our play room and we are trying to get a fun color/theme and then will decorate the room accordingly from there. It has a trundle and will be where Savi will have many a sleepovers I hope:) If you know of a good place or any suggestions...I will be forever grateful!

Also below is the stage that Savi is going through. Mommy is exhausted trying to keep a bow in:) Luckily she leaves rubber bands alone. We are going to build off of that for now:)

Show Us Your Life - Glitz and Glam!

Thursday, October 15, 2009

At Kelly's Korner this week, everyone is supposed to show the stuff they make. As it so happens, I make Swarovski crystal monogram cake toppers! I take many different sizes of Swarovski crystals and customize letters to how people want them for wedding cakes, birthday cakes, etc. I am working on expanding what I do and currently had my friend Kimberly approach me and ask if she could work on marketing/PR. UH yes please:) I have my stuff showcased in 2 bakeries so far and can't wait to see where this goes!

Here is the link to my site: http://www.glitzandglamletters.com/

Here are a couple photos of what I can make!

Corndogs and Pancakes!

Thursday, October 15, 2009

Last week I took a day off and we took Savi to the fair for the first time. She loved it and we had a great family day! We ate lots of fair food and did our usual stuff. Savi still seemed a little young for fair rides but she definitely enjoyed the petting zoo! She also had some yummy first tastes of fair food!

We just got to the fair...so happy!

Family Pic:)

He looks mad at me:)

Savi looking at the animals!

Scrunchy face:)

Thinking about being brave and petting the cow. She didn't:)

Our first fair corndog!

Daddy letting her play in the fountains.

Love me some caramel apples!

Savi just likes the caramel! Cut out the fruit and go for the good stuff...lol!

Later that weekend my Aunt Becky came to visit! My mom and her had a great time. She works part time for Williams Sonoma and I was able to get this little gadget called a pancake pen. You put your batter inside it and then it comes out thin/little enough that you can draw and fill cookie cutters up to make shapes. I had a blast playing with it and making some Halloween themed pancakes! I foresee a mommy/daughter tradition of making holiday pancakes:)

The awesome pancake pen!

Cookie cutters I used to make shapes!

This week at KellysKorner we are showing our team spirit!

Ok so I am not a huge sports fan but I do enjoy the UNC Tarheels. My dad grew up in Winston Salem and is a HUGE fan. He went to the University of North Carolina and graduated in 1972. Ever since my sister and I were teeny tiny we were taught to be tarheel fans! Young or old, they love them some good team spirit! They are extremely well known for there team spirit and legacy as a team in general. Michael Jordan used to wear his UNC basketball shorts underneath his Bulls shorts every game because they were lucky! Last year they were the NCAA champs! And we were super proud! Now I don't really loooovvvve to watch football a great amount but hubby loves it! So I try to support and enjoy the fall weather by cozying up next to him to watch a game. But I definitely enjoy it more when my Dallas Cowboys play! I can actually get into it and root for my home team. If they aren't playing it is TOUGH!
