Linking up for today’s Sunday Social!
Here are today’s questions/answers:
Best Summer memory as a kid?
Going to Paramount King’s Island! My Dad took me there every summer–a day for just me and him. I loved riding the Scooby Doo coaster
Favorite summer drink?
Lemonade (which I know is unoriginal…)–sometimes we would mix jello and pour that into the top of the glasses before it solidified to make our lemonade “fancy”…sounds like a good summer blog post
My sweet Hubby is turning 30 today!!! I think his birthday box might still be stuck somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, so I’m dedicating this post to him to let him know how much we’re thinking about him
I love the song “My Next Thirty Years” by Tim McGraw, so I’m sending that tune Hubby’s way along with a voice recording of baby boy and I singing Happy Birthday!….well, at least one of us was trying to sing…
Here are my letters for this week:
Dear Baby Boy, the purpose of shoes is to protect your feet…quite ineffective if you keep kicking them off!
Dear baby shoes, why don’t any of you stay on baby feet???
Dear Fruit Loops, thanks for being my go-to weeknight “dinner.”
Dear Bubbleguppies, why do babies think you’re so fascinating? I don’t get it, but I love you.
Dear Atlanta, see you soon!
Dear Hubby, Happy 7th Anniversary!!! And Happy Birthday TODAY!!! Can you believe we’ve been married 7 years?!?! And can you believe you’re 30!?!? Happy 3rd decade. Wow–seriously, wow. We’re amazing. I love you SO much!!!
Dear Friday, happy you’re here! So happy for the LONG WEEKEND!!!
This should probably be featured in the Fall, but I love to make s’mores around summer bonfires A friend recently introduced me to Milky Way Simply Caramels and I thought that they would make an awesome s’more…I was so right!!!
I’ve had to work some weekends recently and I refuse to spend even more time apart from baby boy, so I’m putting him to work–lol! We have a big annual event coming up, so I used a staff shirt from a past year for this romper.
I’m sharing the Mother’s Day gift that I sent to my Mom. I know it’s after Mother’s Day, but this gift would also work for birthdays, Christmas, a graduation farewell gift, etc.
The DIY Bird’s Necklace is not an original idea. There are tons of tutorials out there. I liked this one from Sarah Ortega.
Her tutorial is very easy to follow and there are lots of pictures
Technically, my Mom’s not a complete empty nester (I have an 11 yr old brother), but my sister and I are all grown up so I thought I’d make a sweet and cheesy tag to go with the necklace.
I made the clipart myself, cut the tag on my silhouette cameo, and attached it to the necklace using a pretty ribbon. I love how it all turned out
The tag design is mine and I’m sharing it with you for free personal use–please pin it for later!

And I’m back! Hope you’re loving the new look as much as me My blog design is by mycutelobster (linked at the bottom of my page). Tasha was a JOY to work with–I definitely recommend her and I’m a loyal customer for any of my future blog/design needs.
How stinkin’ cute is my kiddo??? I mean seriously…he’s a chunka chunka burnin’ love… He turned eight months old recently and I wanted to share my monthly collage with you. I’ve been doing this every month, and I love it! In hindsight, I wish I had done more professional photo shoots with my Canon, and I wish I had added a stuffed animal or toy so you could see how big he’s getting! I was so sleep deprived in the first month that I just grabbed a white onesie, some cute socks, and started snapping away on my iphone. (Iphone cameras are priceless with newborns…the camera “snap” is silent so no waking or startling baby!) I just stuck with that setup each month after.
I made the collage using the Pic Jointer app on my iphone. I use that app to join 1-4 photos in a row, and then I use the Pic Stitcher on Fotor.com to “stitch” the rows of photos together. Let me know if you need a tutorial on this one There are probably easier ways out there (and there are tons of free collage sites), but this is my preferred method.
Glad to be back!

My site is currently getting a makeover! I will be back in a few days, but can’t make any posts during the transition.
Thanks for your patience!
It may make absolutely no since to you that I would title a post this way and then add a picture of my pantry, but allow me to explain…
