a taste of home {crabbies}... the beach, and...

I miss "home"... not so much Maryland, but rather just "home", our home- that feeling, our space, Charlotte's beautiful nursery that we brought her home to. I miss my flowers and our pond, I miss our little cottage.

We love the beach and South Carolina... but it doesn't feel like home yet. So until then, we are adjusting and taking each day as it comes. Soooo, we decided to bring a taste of home to SC!
There is only ONE WAY to cook crabs... and with that,
we brought "home" to us, and oh was it delish!
A fun family night filled with cold beer, steamed crabs, corn and some dancing!
We sat at our little kitchen table and it felt like home!

The next morning... coffee, the beach and sandcastles of course!
Hope you all had a great weekend as well!

Oooo and p.s. speaking of "home", how fun is this new
 house warming invite?!?

Blueberries, Blueberries, Blueberries and...

This Summer we have picked... strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and tomatoes! Honestly, it's amazing and actually really great for children. Little Miss Charlotte is able to see that fruit doesn't grow in a grocery store. Plus, fresh fruit is just wonderful!
We picked 6 pounds of blueberries... yes 6! Which to me, isn't really enough as you can do sooooo many things with blueberries!
Like make some yummy ice pops! A serious must... super simple and delicious recipe!

Now I just need to find some awesome ice pop molds! However, these little babies were .99 cents at the local grocer!

I am just dying to make this recipe... yummmmy!
Peach-and-Blueberry Crispy Crumble, with a little vanilla ice cream- need I say more!  
Hmmm... what else?!? Oooo gotta share this amazing pool party from a fellow party lady, A Blissful Nest! Beyond loooove the colors! Pop on over to her blog for more amazing photos.
This week is flying by... like soaring! Lot's of sweet party boxes shipping out this week, with some great themes. Happy almost Friday!

Pool Party Invitations, Baby Fever and More...

The perfect way to celebrate your little man's Summer birthday...
a Pool Party! So super fun right?!? Working on a pool party this week, so will have to share the deets! Be sure to check out Party Box Design for invites, note cards and party favor stickers!

Oooo and I so have baby fever! I usually hover around .000001 % considering I am the WORST preggie lady ever. Right now I am at like 1%, huge jump- right! We have been doing a lot of baby shower invites, so that must be it...oh and all the cute babies on the beach.
BEACH BABIES are so gosh darn cute!
My beach baby is no longer... 3 yrs old and a whole lotta sass! We in fact should change her name to Sassy instead of Charlotte!
The doggies are LOVING the beach too... especially Boulder! We call him our little salty dog, with one eye it's very fitting! He loves to jump the waves and swim... he is quite the entertainer! Monty Bons our little frenchie does not swim, but loves to run and play in the puddles!
Happy Monday Everyone!

Loving Charleston and the places that surround it!

Yesterday we picked fresh strawberries and blackberries!
Ummm love that!
Next week we will be picking blueberries!

I wish I had a pic to share as Charlotte was COVERED in red and purple... they should have weighed her with the strawberries! lol
We spent the rest of the day walking and playing at the beach and of course UNPACKING!
Low tide is amazing, so many neat critters laying on the sand. We found sand dollars, crabbies, conchs, clams... simply amazing!

I still can't believe we are living at the beach, it just doesn't feel real!

Boxes surround me, not sure where anything is... but, we survived the 10 hr drive from MD to SC!
Charlotte was amazing, as were the doggies!

Everyone loves the beach, dogs included! This morning we picked fresh strawberries and blackberries... about to head back to the beach this afternoon!

Can't wait to explore what our new state has to offer.

We will be back to work on Monday, until then please enjoy
