Stage Mother

Share It:
We have had a super busy May so far!  Among the school events, my nephew made his First Holy Communion and Molly had her dance recital. I have to admit that Molly dances not just because she enjoys it but because I'm living vicariously through her. As a kid, I begged and pleaded to take lessons even though I secretly knew I would never be unchubby enough to actually step foot outside in a leotard.

And she has beautiful taste that I envy. Her blog is luscious....gorgeous photography and so many creative, crafty, DIY, and decoration ideas. You can spend hours pouring over her stuff!

Teacher Appreciation/End of the Year Gift

Share It:
Who doesn't love cake?  No one. And teachers love to eat. Have you ever seen the inside of the faculty room?  Full of cake.  When I was growing up we would try to catch a glimpse inside as we walked by to learn  all their secrets. Know what?  All we ever saw were the teachers smoking and reading the paper. I can't even fathom going in here to smoke nowadays. Of course, now that we aren't smoking there is a lot more cake in the faculty room.

DIY Menu Chalkboard

A few weeks ago, Ellie, Pixie and I were taking a walk around the block. It was garbage day and the garbage truck had already come by our neighborhood. However, I happened upon a piece of old wood that I guess they didn't take or missed. So I scooped it up knowing exactly what I would do with it!
