Kitchen Herbs

I decided to plant some herbs in little pots to have in the kitchen.
I have been watching cooking shows, and noticed they had fresh herbs in their kitchens.
Anywho, I decided to find some small pots, and paint them white.
I found the pots at Hobby Lobby for under $4.
I found little dishes to collect the water at Lowes.
I think they help finish off the kitchen nicely!

When I get a chance, I would like to find cute markers. Here's to fresh herbs!

Super-Cute Bows!

I have been loving Lilly Pulitzer lately.
From the designs of the clothing to the prints on them.
It's just plain fun!
I found some cute bows on Etsy the other day, made out of Lilly fabric.
They just arrived today, and they are cuter in person!
I'm going to have a hard time sharing them with Julia!
Some Lilly prints, and Vineyard Vines inspired prints.

"Written in the Sun" print.

So cute and fun!

Perfect for Spring and Summer!

Small Town

Matthew's school has an event every year called Small Town.
It is a cute little mock set up of a town.
The kids are given money, and can spend it where they like.
Meeting the mayor of Small Town.

Meeting a fireman, and policemen.

Learning how to send a letter at the Post Office.

At the car wash.

Enjoying some ice cream.

At the bakery.

Getting a shave at the Barber shop.

This was for sure his favorite.

Juju loved the bubbles!

Juju getting her nails done at the beauty salon.

Admiring her fancy nails.
We didn't get a chance to visit every store, but we had a really good time. Can't wait for next year.

Valentine Decor

Today I hosted a Valentine Playgroup, and wanted to document some of the decor.
Valentine's Day was always so exciting for me as a kid.
I hope my kids love it as much as me!
