Labor Day

Labor Day for me and three of my besties kicked off before the rooster crowed this morning.  After two attempted races together, we FINALLY were able to complete one (the whole third time’s a charm I suppose)!!  And it was extra sweet because we ran the 5k for Autism Awareness in honor of bestie M’s sweet son.

She made us the darling puzzle ribbon and glitter monogrammed shirts for the occasion!

It was so humid out, it was like running through soup.  We were all sweaty at the end, but crossed the finish line together and really had so much fun!!

And what could make the morning sweeter?!  Why, celebrating our accomplishment over breakfast at Waffle House.  :-)

I was home before Honey was even out of bed for the day.  I rallied the troops and we hit the club for the last big blowout of the summer.  Impromptu ice bucket challenges and all.


And now we’re all laying around in jammies trying to figure out who is going to make din din tonight.  I hope y’all are enjoying a lovely Labor Day!



Our Yellow Jackets kicked off the 2014 football season yesterday!!  It was a scorcher, but we had the very best time hanging out with friends and family and cheering on Tech to a win.

After the game we spent a fabulous evening with bestie M (in her amazing back yard that I totally should have photographed), feasting on BBQ, swimming, watching football and cocktail-ing.

I’m so going to miss these dog days of summer!!  To that end, we are squeezing every last ounce of fun out of summer this holiday weekend!!  On tap tomorrow we have more swimming and baseball for John, and Cookie is getting dropped off at Bird’s house for a play date full of rescue bots, transformers and pizza. 



Team Tags {Free Printable}

Fall football kicks off for the Yellow Jackets here in Atlanta tomorrow afternoon and I’m super excited to cheer on our favorite team!!! 

(Who am I kidding?  I’m actually excited because Sister told me I can be CeeCee’s mommy for the day, I can wear my one shoulder yellow Lilly dress since it’s not yet Labor Day, I get a day date with Honey, aaaannndddd season ticket holders received fabulous clear bags to bring in our own food and drinks this year.  But I digress…) 
Since football is synonymous with fall here in the South, it’s all anyone has been talking about all week.  I thought it would be the perfect time to remind y’all about the free printable team tags I made last year.

TBT Disney Style

So, these beauties arrived in the mail this week…

And I thought it would be fun to show a few #TBT Disney style pictures I came across at Mother and Daddy-O’s house this summer.   Remember when you could just walk right up to Mickey?  No 180 days worth of planning or strategically scheduled fast passes back then.

Sister and I adored the trolleys on Main Street.   And I’m sure some of y’all had those Disney visors.

The animal topiaries were the first sign you’d hit the most magical place on earth.  That and the fact that Daddy-O would turn the dial to the Disney radio station.  Such amazing memories coming down that long road with anticipation of the fun that would lie ahead!!

And then there was our grad night trip.  SO much fun!!!  If only I could find the pics from a college trip with big sis :-)

Oh, and I had to sneak this one in of Mother’s 40th birthday!!  (A sketchy) Mickey delivered balloons and a diamond ring to the Pirate’s House for dinner.  Don’t think for a second that I won’t be celebrating my own 40th with the mouse.

Now we’re making our own Disney memories with the littles.

Dressing Southern Tots {ebay sale}

After my original Dressing Southern Tots post and last ebay sale, I continue to get questions about when I’ll sell the next set.  Well, the time is here!  Some are new, many are like new, and some have been well loved but still have life left in them.  I start all of my auctions at $0.99 and I do combine shipping.  Most of them are size 5 but there are a few larger and smaller sprinkled in.  Auctions will end Tuesday September 2.
