MCAS Air Show {for the boys}

We went to the air show at Cherry Point Saturday and CAT loved it!  All the flying, tumbling, twisting and falling gave me the hiebbies-jiebbies (yes, even though we were stationed on the ground), but it was pretty cool to see everything up close.  Here's some pictures from the day.  It is nearly impossible to get all 4 Blue Angel planes in one frame on a point and shoot!

around the house

Okay, let me start with telling ya'll that I have a historically black thumb. Like, really, really black. As in I can kill most any flower in a very short time. But yesterday I decided our front yard needs some color. (Actually, what it really needs is either a truckload of mulch or lava rock but we haven't had a weekend yet to tackle that job.) So I thought some pretty flowers in my trusty oversized beach buckets would make good band-aids. I stopped by The Friendly Market on my way home from work and got some encouragement ("it's just mostly luck anyway, sweetie") and flowers.
I've had this hydrangea for a month!
And it even has a bloom:)
The star and pavers are there in a effort to stop my dogs from digging for moles right in front of the porch.  It is also why these planters are in this particular spot for now.  The dirt they kick up onto the railing is really unattractive.  Really.

I love these two!

Hopefully I can keep everything alive!  Anyone have any gardening tips for me?!?

Monogrammed Annabelle Bags

Wow, I've been a bad blogger this week! I've been here, there, and everywhere: only not on the computer. I apologize dear readers!

I have been wanting to show ya'll my Monogrammed Annabelle bags for a few weeks now, so I'm excited about this post today! This bag style is easily becoming my favorite. It is easy to use, lightweight, and usually big enough for everything I need. On days that I need more stuff, it fits comfortable into my tote bags. Monogram is available for $9 extra!



I hope to update my Etsy store this month & this will definitely be in the shop!
