2 Months

My baby is 2 months old today which means he got his first round of immunizations.  Poor little guy.  He received 3 of those little Snoopy band-aids you see on his leg.  Ouch!

Of course, he seemed to be in good spirits after we got home from the doctor's office...
Love that smile!

Spring Wreath

Inspiration from Duitang and Too Stinkin Cute

I saw a picture of this wreath online and I immediately fell in love with it.  It is such a simple, yet beautiful spring decoration that brings a smile to my face every time I walk up to my front door.   To make the wreath I made a quick stop at Jo-Ann's and bought a styrofoam wreath form, some green fun fur and one sprig of silk flowers.  After only an hour and a half, my new spring wreath was complete!  I love how it turned out and I love that I finished it so quickly.

Sorry the picture is so dark.  That is what happens when you take pictures at midnight and don't look at them until you are more fully awake.  Oops!

Huggies Brand Brigade

As many of you know, I am always looking for ways to help the environment and reduce waste.  I am appalled at the amount of waste that is generated in our society.  I have recently decided to join with TerraCycle, a company that works to recycle or upcycle previously non-recyclable or hard to recycle waste.  Some examples of what they collect or candy wrappers, chip bags, drink pouches, gum packaging, and diaper packaging.  If you are interested in learning more about TerraCycle and the work they do as well as the products they create please visit their website!  I will keep you posted on how the recycling is going!

Yes, it truly is addictive!

I love that I can now Pin my "favorites" online instead of on my computer.  This has helped me clean up my laptop and help me keep my "favorites" more organized.  I am really loving this site.  Anyone else on Pinterest?

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

While Chris was working, Christopher and I had a little St. Paddy's fun.

Of course, it may have only been fun for me...

Poor little guy, he has no idea!  Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

If you want to know a little more about Pi, check out my earlier post Here.

And for those of you who would rather celebrate Pie Day, than Pi Day (you know who you are!) then this is for you...

The Girl Scouts Celebrate 100 Years

That's right, 100 years!  Juliette Gordon Low organized the first Girl Scout Troop on this date in 1912, in Savannah, Georgia.

The picture you see above shows my three favorite Girl Scout Cookies and some of my old badges from when I was a Girl Scout back in the day.  I have no idea why I took them all off of my old sash but I have a sash with 3 patches on it and a tin full of loose badges and patches.  Hmmm.  No idea.

Congratulations on 100 years and here's to the next 100 years!

High Today 55. Current Temp 64.

I think our weatherman just makes up numbers.  Seriously.  We actually read that on the website.  High Today 55. Current Temp 64.  One would think that they would at least update the High for the Day...

I am not going to complain though.  It was a beautiful day outside and we decided to take Christopher for his first walk in his stroller.

Here's to many more beautiful walks with our son!

Thank you again to everyone!

The Announcement

Chris and I had a plan for Christopher's Birth Announcement and it involved a golf theme.  Shocking, I know.  But, would you believe that I found a golf themed card on Snapfish!  Only one, but it worked.  So here is a sneak peak at what you will see...
