Catching up....

Life has been nothing short of crazy around here lately.    I have not posted a thing since March 3rd which means I never even posted about my favorite holiday, St. Patty's.  My word....what has happened to this little blog??!!     I wanted to post a quick catch up to get us up to date because this blog is not only to share great ideas on decorating, crafting and organizing, but a record of my family's lives for me.

So, back to the beginning of March.....we had a great St. Patty's day and as always the little leprechauns made a complete mess of our kitchen on St. Patty's day.  Silly little guys.  They left some small toys and coins everywhere.  I didn't get a picture of the loot, but I did capture a picture of my own little leprechaun. (don't mind the MESS in the background).  I would generally try for a better backdrop, but I was lucky to get these and their shenanigans with them.

He also wore a crazy necklace and hat to school that day.  My boy LOVES St. Patty's.  My daughter has grown out of the "dressing for the holidays" gig unfortunately.

After years of asking to take Tae Kwondo repeatedly, I finally caved and my little guy started.  I was waiting and waiting thinking he would start and bag out of it like all of the other sports he had wanted to try, but HE LOVES IT!   Like loves it so much that almost every sentence contains the words Tae Kwondo or a "hi-ya".  Here he is in March receiving his yellow belt at his first belt testing.  I am so proud of him for how much he wants to practice and get better.   

Also in March was our middle school's play "Little Mermaid, Jr.".  I have to say I was quite surprised when my daughter told me she wanted to try out.  #1 because she's pretty shy with adults and she had to try out with teachers and #2 because she's always been my athlete and my son has been my "performer".   Regardless, I was thrilled when she got the part of the seahorse and was so amazed at the hard work and dedication that these children displayed.  It was a fantastic weekend and I couldn't be more proud of her!

Here she is before her first real performance with full makeup.  Yikes I am not ready for makeup yet. 

And here are a few from the play...

As for me, I have been busy with Poshed Up.  We had an extremely successful first season of Easter baskets.   Here are a few of my favorites!  I had a bunch that were not monogrammed as well, but I definitely love anything monogrammed.  These will definitely be returning to the shop next year!

And now we have started Beach Bag season.  Even though the weather is not cooperating, I am in full blown summer mode and have started our line of 2013 Beach Bags.  Here are a few so far...

I have tons more coming.   I feel like every day I find a new fabric combo I love and I'm excited to share the remaining bags by the end of April.

And last, but not least, we celebrated a fantastic Easter with family!

Thanks for still visiting this blog that I have so neglected.  I promise I have lots in store for the very near future.  We are headed on a trip to Disney very soon and I can't wait to share!
