Meet our Gigi

Our precious little girl is here! On April 8th, the wee one arrived at 12:39 PM weighing in at 6 pounds, 4 ounces and measuring 18 inches long! We are simply dazzled by her. These pictures were taken in some the few awake moments she had the other day. She's one week old today and I just had to share our excitement!

Great Friday!

Today was my husband's day off, the last one before our girl arrives. We decided to take Shiloh to do some of his favorite things. We started out eating breakfast out and then found a tot lot where Shiloh had a blast running around and playing. He decided it was much more fun to go down the slide backwords and he would clap with glee every time he slid down, too cute. Then he would walk away a little bit and turn around and wave at us. We went for burgers for lunch and Shiloh fell asleep on the way home, tuckered out from his morning adventure. Once he woke from his nap we took him for ice cream at Jaxson's, a phenomenal place. If you are EVER in South Florida you have to check it out, it is a true historical fixture, it's been featured on the Food Network, it has fabulous antiques lining the walls and the only word for the ice cream is COLLOSAL. It is a great experience you can't miss. Check out the website at It was a truly great day, filled with fun, laughter, bear hugs and sticky kisses. It was such a special day, I couldn't help but feel a twinge sad knowing that this was our last day, just the three of us, but we're so excited to meet our girl on Wednesday! Stay tuned to meet her!

Remember that banner project?

Last Friday, while I was working on about a thousand other things for my baby girl's nursery, those vintage travel souvenier pennants I got on ebay arrived for my son's room! I had intended to sew them to fabric to make a banner, but they came with tabs that I could just tie onto whatever. I also didn't realized how many of them there would be, and in varying sizes too! I decided to do some big ones over the curtains and a small banner for the front of his crib. I think they really added a lot! I still have a few projects I want to finish for his room, but I wanted to share how this turned out. Let me know what you think! I'll do a more detailed post of Shiloh's vintage travel room later when it's closer to completed. Enjoy! PS~That adorable little guy peeking out of his crib is our Shiloh!
