just another Thursday night at the Barber's

It's becoming a weekly occurrence to have music practice at the Barber's house on Thursday nights...and one that I thoroughly enjoy!  It's so nice to eat, visit, and play music with some of my favorite people.  Tonight was taco soup and crazy crackers night (...and yummy brownie/cookie things Brookie made...) If you haven't had crazy crackers before; they are like crack.  They are a staple with us during fall and winter...perfect with pretty much any kind of soup or cheese or just plain.  See what I mean...
 I have crackers buried in there...YUM!
 Anne absolutely adores Riley...and she's so sweet to entertain Anne weekly!
Fun times :)

I am looking forward to this birthday dinner, Loblolly festival, and mostly time with my sweet family :)

What are you doing fun this weekend???

Anne loves reading to her friends.

While I was sewing, I caught Anne reading a book to her friends (aka stuffed animals).  It was one of those sweet, sweet moments that a mother dreams about.  She truly is such a blessing to me and our family.  Have I mentioned that I love this kid?

The Christmas Elf

Cyndi Lou has been hard at work on our newest Hello Dearie item...the Christmas elf!  These are not the best pictures, but you can see how cute he is...He is about 14 inches tall from top of his hat to his boots.  We will be taking orders for these guys (girls to come too) after October 15.  These little elves will be the sweetest thing to hang out of your little one's stocking on Christmas morning.

Have a great night!

etsy lovin'...vintage clothing



vignette photos

I was on a blogging spree this weekend, but poor internet kept me from posting these lovely photos taken with my new camera on my phone last night...sigh.  We had lunch with Cyndi yesterday, and of course, we had to try out the new mixer.  We made oatmeal raisin and monster cookies...they were delicious.  

I hope to be back later with an etsy lovin' post :)
Have a lovely Monday!

Happy Birthday, Cyndi!!!

Today is the BEST mother in love(law) in the world's birthday!  I honestly cannot tell you how much I adore this woman.  She has definitely become my second mother and one of my best friends.  I mean, we do own a business together!  We were so excited to celebrate with some of our favorite people that we don't get to see very often.  Since pictures tell a wayyyyy better story than I do, here is our day in pictures.

so thankful for days like today...visiting with family, sitting by the pool, bar-be-que, birthday cake, rides in the doesn't get much better than this.

P.S. We got her a Kitchen Aid mixer so hopefully there will be lots of cookies and yummy things in our future!!!

Lynn Meadows Museum

It was the perfect day for a road trip...we set off as soon as Michael got off work for the coast.  We went straight to Lynn Meadows and can I just say, Anne had a blast!  Michael B. and Sam were there to meet us :)  We had such a fun time in this little world of imagination. I felt like were were in the Land of Make Believe from Mr. Roger's Neighborhood.


And even though MS coast is not known for it's beauty, it was quite nice driving down the beach with a beautiful sunset on display. 
It was a lovely day, and we will soon be off to Fairhope to have a little birthday celebration with family!

I hope you are all having a happy weekend!
