This past weekend, Ben and I finished planting our garden.  We started the day at Lowe's buying vegetable plants to replace some of our seedlings that didn't make it. Recently we have had a lot of  rainfall and flooding, so we tried to wait to plant the seedlings we started indoors a couple of months ago and it wasn't the best idea.  Once we returned home, we brought the record player outside and finished planting our garden. This is our garden plan for this year:

I made these markers so that we...

Our garden is currently in the middle of a tomato explosion. We have  yellow tomatoes (Lemon Boy),  red tomatoes in about every size (Campari, Grape, Better Boy and Early Girl to be exact)  and  heirloom tomatoes (Cherokee Purple and Brandy Wine).  We also have an eggplant and four bell peppers.  I love having a...

Starkville Community Market

This past weekend Ben and I went to the farmer's market in Starkville.  It was our first time to visit the market since they moved to their brand new location.  We had a blast and it is very apparent that the market's organizers have worked very hard to make the new location really nice.  I feel like our little town is improving and I couldn't be more excited about it. Everything we bought was so delicious!

I am really into tiny houses.  Especially Eco-friendly,  energy efficient,  recyclable tiny lake cabins. What is better than a cabin on a lake during the summer?  Nothing I can think of really. Well,  maybe a tiny cabin on a lake with a tiny dog beside me.  Zoe would love this cabin. (Ben- My birthday is coming up. ...

Baggu’s Duck Bag 1/2 Off Today Only!

Link to Baggu’s Duck Bag 1/2 Off Today Only!

This morning opening my inbox was more delightful than usual.  I received an email from Baggu proclaiming 1/2 off their Duck Bag for 24 hours only. I love my current Baggu which I also bought for my Bridesmaids last year.  It is so handy and such a cute green alternative to plastic shopping bags. Using one BAGGU for one year replaces 300 to 700 disposable bags. -Baggu I can't wait until this gem comes in the mail and for only $10, I am quite happy.

It seems like so much is happening in our garden these days.  We don't have tomatoes yet but I am proud of our little garden's progress. Okay and the next update isn't so much a garden update as it is a front flower bed update.  When we first moved in,  I was thrilled that we had Azaleas or what I thought were azaleas.  After a couple of months,  I decided that they were not "thriving" in their location and pulled them up.  I am what you could call an impatient gardener.  In retrospect I realize that I should have just moved...

I love the pretty vintage stamps we used on our wedding invitation envelopes so much. The envelopes we used for our wedding invitations were 100% recycled paper from Action Envelope.   We used vintage stamps that I purchased on Ebay, for the invitations we sent to the wedding party, close friends and family. For all of the other guests, we used the new love stamps which were perfect. Since hiring a calligrapher didn't really fit into our budget and I had no intention of writing addresses on all of our invitations since my husband invited half of  Starkville, we decided on using...
