Friday Foodie

Yay! It's the weekend! I am so excited for this weekend. We are heading to Gainesville, Ga for a friends baby shower and some much needed friend time.  
Most every weekend we find ourselves grilling out and I wanted to share one of our new favorite recipes to grill. Yes! Its a salad and it is delish! 

I tore this out of  Better Homes & Gardens Magazine and we have made it so many times now. 
You have to give it a try.

Wild about Wallpaper

I honestly cant even believe I am writing this. I thought I would NEVER join in on the wallpaper bandwagon. I mean the occasional grasscloth was always fine, but pattern?? Hold the phone!
Check out these patterned papers that are making me think twice.

Some are Subtle...


 Some are Big...


 Some are Small...




Some are Bold...





What do you think? Would you choose one of these?
Are you thinking twice about wallpaper now?

Back to Baby

I think it is time to show off my handsome little boy again! 
I take so many pictures of him all the time, I just can't get enough. 
Here are some of his firsts...

First time he got a pacifier. He was so happy he guarded it with his hand!

First stuffed animal. 
One of the kids I nannied, Lanier, gave this to him. She had has the same one since she was born and 12 years later she found another Dino on the internet to give Hampton.

 First sponge bath. He did not like that one.
 First time in his crib.
First outing in the car seat
 First doc appointment for his check up
 Thankfully daddy was there to calm him down
 First time he found his thumb
First real bath

 He loves bath time

 First walk with mom and dad
 First time he held his bottle...this was a fluke!
 First time he dressed like his friend Henry (it wont be the last)
 First game of peek-a-boo
 First time in the baby bjorn
 First time at the nail salon 
 First family photos
Do you think I am a crazy mom yet? There will be many more firsts to come.
Happy Monday!

4 Years Together

Today is our 4 year wedding anniversary. 
I feel so blessed to be married to such an amazing man. Wesley has not only been a loving husband, but is now an awesome DAD! I have always had a special place in my heart for my first love, but I truly think that my heart grew bigger for him when we had Hampton. 

I realized I haven't shared many wedding pictures with you so here are some of my favorites from that special day.

  
 








 





















Happy Anniversary to us!!
I cant wait to celebrate many more with him!!
