Vintage love

Pinterest. It's one of those things you just get hooked on and end up spending hours browzing before you even realize it. Obviously it's much more fun to follow other pinners who have such a keen eye for design too. 

Several years back, April and I embarked on a trip to Canton, Texas (huge market that's only open the weekend of the 1st Monday of each month).  As recommended by several other friends, we stopped by a little home decor store called Laurie Anna's. I fell in love. This is my kind of store. I wanted to pick everything up and just put it in my house because I love a good vintage look. Since then, we've made trips to Texas just to visit this little place. Following Laurie Anna's on Pinterest is almost just as fun as going to her shoppe. I recommend checking her out!

Below are a few shots of this amazing little place from the last time we were there.

Glow in the Dark Eggs

We had a very relaxing Easter Sunday. Went to church, grabbed some lunch and then came home to relax. We kept busy doing little projects around the house, fishing at the pond, playing kickball with all the neighbor kiddos, and relaxing till dark out on the sidewalk with great neighbors.

As my boys get older (now 7 and to-be 16 this week) coloring eggs and hunting them are not the most exciting activities anymore. I found the idea on Pinterest to do glow in the dark eggs (plastic eggs filled with glow in the dark bracelets) and it was perfect. Why didn't I think of this??
 The boys had a small egg hunt in the house when it was dark. I think they were pretty awesome, myself....
Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!
