Happy Birthday, Jon Boy!

"I have found the one my heart loves..." Song of Solomon 3:4

Today my husband, Jonathan, turns 30!!!! Ahhhh - we are getting old, and starting to actually FEEL old! He is the most amazing husband a girl could ever ask for and the most wonderful father to our little girl. I am so blessed and thankful to be married to him and am so excited that I get to spend the rest of my life with him! Happy Birthday, my love!

This is him when we first met back during my sophmore year and his senior year of college. (We didn't actually start dating until the following summer). Isn't he cute?

This is us about to head out to dinner to celebrate one year of dating.

And here we are on our wedding day

So excited to become parents! (And nervous!)

Heading home from the hospital with tiny baby Lillian Annabel!

My two loves!


Our family on Lillabel's first birthday!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Also, today is the last day to enter our Mini Give-Away. Scroll down to the next post to enter! And don't forget to check back tomorrow when we announce the winner and start our April Give-Away where we will be giving away our Adeliene Dress!!!!!!

Another Mini Give-Away!

So, I thought we would do another mini give-away this weekend. You can win one of these shirts shown below. Sizes run from S - XL for these shirts. We don't have a full run of sizes left in these shirts, so depending on what size you would like will depend on which shirt you win.

Dandelion Shirt - This vintage style t-shirt has a dandelion being blown and under it and we incorporated a quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It says: "Grow up, and that is a terribly hard thing to do. It is much easier to skip it and go from one childood to another."





So We Drove On... This distressed t-shirt has an old fashioned convertible that we drew and we incorporated the first few words from a quote from one of our most favorite books, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It says: "As we drove on..." (The whole sentence is, "As we drove on towards death through the cooling twilight." That seemed a bit much though, for a shirt).



Vintage Crown Shirt - This shirt has a crown that has been hand screen printed in white ink on an Alternative Apparel Tonal Shirt in Vintage Black. We have this shirt available in several different color-ways which I don't have photos of right now.



Vintage Peony Shirt - This vintage style t-shirt has a vintage looking faded peony and we incorporated a quote from another one of our favorite authors, Lucy Maud Montgomery. It says: "I love to smell flowers in the dark...you get a hold of their soul then.

Even if you don't find one of these to be your style, it would still make a great gift. It will come, as always, with a hang tag and wrapped in tissue and tied with ribbon! As this is just a little give-away we are just going to have it run for a few days and will pick a winner on Thursday, April 1st!

So, how can you win one of these?
It is simple:


1) Make a comment on this post - 1 Entry (please limit to just one comment per day, you can comment each day, though, if you would like)



2) Mention this giveaway with a link on your Facebook page or Tweet about it: 1 Entry (in order for it to count as an entry, please write "Facebook" or "Twitter" as its own comment in the comment section)


3) Become a follower - 3 Entries (in order for it to count as an entry, please write "follower" as its own comment in the comment section, and make sure to do it three times so it will count as three extra entries for you, or if you are already a follower, make sure to write "follower" also as a comment three times)



4) Mention this giveaway on your own blog and include a link to our giveaway, - 3 Entries (Again for this to count make sure to write "blog" four different times as comments.) In case you are wondering why in the world you have to comment each time you blog or tweet about it or become a follower, it is because we use the number of comments to plug into the random number generator and that is how we know what number to plug in and who matches up with it - hope that makes sense.



Good luck to you all and we will announce the winner on April 1st! We also will be hosting our monthly give-away then as well! Our next two monthly give-aways are going to be a pillow and a dress....we are figuring out which order works best for our schedule but will announce it on the 1st so don't forget to check back.

Poor Lillie...Haha!

My mom made Lillie an absolutely adorable little dress that came in the mail yesterday. It was so beautiful that I decided to put Lillie in it today even though it wasn't quite as warm as it had been. I had to pair it with leggings (and then later a sweater when we went out). While we were out she got tons of compliments. I told everyone how my mom had made her dress, my sister's mother-in-law had made her little pink hand-knit sweater, I had made her hair clip and her shoes were handmade by Jessica over at Mia Joie. The only thing that wasn't hand-made were her leggings. As I was telling someone this, I was thinking to myself in another year or two Lillie is going come back from pre-school and ask why can't she just wear cool store-bought clothes like everyone else? Haha! I hope I can train her to appreciate the beauty of the items that are made specially for her, but I am guessing I won't luck out with that until she is all grown up herself!

Also today, Miss Lillabel went on her first "big-girl" trip to the library today! It was so much fun and she absolutely loved it! They had these little tables and chairs and toy trains and stuff. She had so much fun playing with everything and the picking out her new books! I am so glad I made myself wait to bring her (I had been wanting to for several months but wasn't sure she was old enough to enjoy it) because she absolutely LOVED it! I can't wait to bring her again next week! I am thankful to have many wonderful childhood memories and one of my favorite things to think back on were all of the wonderful trips we took to the library as children. My mom, sisters and I all are absolutely addicted to reading and my dad as of late has become quite the reader himself. My brother is the only one who doesn't like to read, but seeing how he is a 21 year-old college student I suppose that is to be expected. Anyway, I have always appreciated how much our parents nurtured our love of literature and hope to do the same with my children. So, needless to say I am terribly excited that Lillie loves to read "stories".

Another Winner!

Last night was pretty exciting! William and Mary is playing in the NIT! We went over to Coach and Mrs. Shaver's house with the whole team first, and then headed to school where we watched them announce our bracket on the big screen. We play the North Carolina Tarheels (where both Jon and Coach Shaver played) on Tuesday night (tomorrow) in Chapel Hill at 9:30PM on ESPN. Thanks to a rough day again around here - Lillie's got a runny nose again, she threw up this afternoon (although seems to be doing all right since) and then split her lip open horribly right before bed while doing her "ballerina twirls" - I think Lillie and I are going to stay home and watch it on TV even though we really wish we could be there! Here are a few pics from last night. (Lillie does have other clothes besides her Tribe cheerleading outfit! I promise, after this there won't be any more posts with her in it....unless we make it to Madison Square Garden and then I think there will be a few more =).....)

And finally, here is the winner of our mini-giveaway!!!!

Sorry, I am just now getting to pick the winner of our mini-giveaway for the crown shirt. It has been a crazy day and I am afraid it is just going to get crazier this week! Argh!

Anyway, the winner is: Lynndy from Olive Juice and Elephant Shoes! Congratulations! Thank you, and everyone else who entered! Let us know your address and we will get that shipped right out to you!


And don't forget to keep checking back. We will be having our usual monthly give-away starting on April 1st as well as mini give-aways once we hit the 100 follower mark here on our blog and the 1000 mark on our Etsy site!

A Mini Give-Away!


Seeing how it is way to crazy here to do a real post and probably will be for a few more days I thought we would do a little "mini" give-away. This time it will be for one of our screen-printed shirts. This vintage crown screenprinted shirt is a size medium. The crown is printed in an olive ink on a heathered olive vintage style Alternative Apparel shirt. We find that this particular style runs VERY small, though, and in my opinion it is more of a small. Even if it isn't your size, it would still make a great gift. It will come, as always, with a hang tag and wrapped in tissue and tied with ribbon! As this is just a little give-away we are just going to have it run for a few days and will pick a winner on Monday, the 15th!

The rules are the same as our last give-away:
It is simple:

1) Make a comment on this post - 1 Entry (please limit to just one comment per day, you can comment each day, though, if you would like)

2) Mention this giveaway with a link on your Facebook page or Tweet about it: 2 Entries (in order for it to count as an entry, please write "Facebook" or "Twitter" as its own comment in the comment section, and make sure to do it twice so it will count as two extra entries for you)

3) Become a follower - 3 Entries (in order for it to count as an entry, please write "follower" as its own comment in the comment section, and make sure to do it three times so it will count as three extra entries for you, or if you are already a follower, make sure to write "follower" also as a comment three times)

4) Mention this giveaway on your own blog and include a link to our giveaway, - 4 Entries (Again for this to count make sure to write "blog" four different times as comments.) In case you are wondering why in the world you have to comment each time you blog or tweet about it or become a follower, it is because we use the number of comments to plug into the random number generator and that is how we know what number to plug in and who matches up with it - hope that makes sense.
Good luck to you all and we will announce the winner on March 15th!

Here are a few pics from the championship game on Monday night, which we lost =(....it was a rather heartbreaking game, but we still have a tiny chance of making it to the NCAA tournament, and if not, then the NIT - so that will be pretty exciting!


We have had trouble getting the W&M stickers off of Lillie's face so they are still on there - haha!
