Emerson's first day....

of PMO came upon me quicker than I had anticpated. I even had doubts if she (or really I) were ready for this. But according to the care takers, she had an excellent first day. I snapped this cute picture of her before we headed out the door....she looks ready...and since Elliott doesn't start school until next week, we had the morning to ourselves, and this is what we did:

hilton head

so......we went on vaction to Hilton Head Island, SC back in May and have a ton of great beach pictures, that I have not been able to figure out what to do with. In all my spare time, I was browsing through some of my favorite blogs, and came across this great idea over at J Caroline's blog.

I LOVE how it turned out!

And, unfortunately, Elliott comes by his lack of focus honestly, because my morning was supposed to be a productive morning spent sewing and getting orders ready to ship.....but yet, here we are at 11 am with not much sewn....but a beautiful collage that I am so excited about!

I can already picture it hanging on our wall:)

1,000 Sales!!!

So I was preparing to write an "almost at 1,000 sales" blog post on Monday, June 14th, but by the time it was complete, I had already made it to 1,000 sales. Which is great!

I truly never thought I would see this day 3 1/2 years ago when I decided to set up shop on Etsy!

To acknowledge this great accomplishment, I'm thinking of having an Easy Edges give away!

I am going to post the new things that have been added to the shop over the past month....and all you have to do is post a comment on what you like best and why by Monday June 21:) Then I will put all the names into a hat and let my trusty 4 year old pick the lucky winner. The prize is a gift certificate to my shop!

Beach Towels...
Batman Shirts...
Gift Sets.... (more of these to come)
Patchwork Daisy set:Letter shirts and onesies:and last but not least, things I can't sell on etsy, but will be sure to have at my booth in October at the Jonquil Festival! (more schools to come)

Oh my.....

....I can NOT believe it has been almost 9 months since I have updated my blog. Well, actually I can. Life has been a whirlwind since September 18, 2009 at precisely 8:34 am, when we welcomed our baby girl into the world! She came in strong and has captured our hearts ever since. We are in absolute love with our Emerson Grace....especially her older brother.
Here are some pics to fill in all my loyal blog followers (which I am sure there are thousands who have been on the edge of their computer chairs, wondering what happened to us;)
here she is at 6 months...
and I, of course, have put her to work modeling new items for my shop...
She has had a great time getting to know her big brother...

2 weeks and 5 days left.....

but who's counting?
We went in for our last ultrasound this week and everything looked as it should. The tech said she could see hair sticking up on her head! And the bubble looking thing below her mouth is the umbilicol cord, but Elliott got a kick out of the fact that she looked like she was blowing bubbles.

lots of other things have been happening around here while we wait for our little girl...Elliott finished up his first set of swim lessons at the YMCA and is very proud of his ribbon he achieved:

and we've been spending a lot of time in the baby room, making sure everything including her glider is working properly:

And, most importantly, the begining of the new year of prechool is next week! Elliott is in the 3 year old Giraffe room this year. We went to his meet and greet this morning, and I think it is going to be a great year!

and here is my almost 38 week belly:

one month left!!!!

One month left until our baby girl is due. She has dropped soooo low, I honestly feel she could pop out any minute! But hopefully we will make it into September before she makes her grand entrance. She was 5lbs at her 35 week ultrasound.

The house is slowly coming together and the garage door is finally on!

which means we can finally start clearing out the dining room and den of stuff!

And the baby's room is just about complete...I still need to get a longer curtain rod, finish the crib skirt, and hang things on the walls....oh and fix the book shelf I broke a couple of weeks ago.

and hand the mirror above the dresser...

We had a blast at my cousin's wedding in Detroit last weekend:
my cousin Chris, the groom...Josh, me, Chris, and his new bride, Jessica:
