5 on Friday

1.  Y'all... I'm crazy! I stopped doing DBB because it was too chaotic and that was great for a while.... then I got antsy to start something again.  Therefore... meet The Southern Stitch.

{and yes, I'm still working my HR job outside the home 4 days a week, eek!}

I wasn't really happy with the way DBB was going, a lot of the stuff wasn't really my style, and I wanted to incorporate a few clothing and accessory items for women as well, therefore the DBB name wouldn't have worked anyway.  I re-branded as an affordable boutique where you can still find affordable classic smocked dresses and monogrammed bows, along with game day and date night outfits for momma's as well.  Get this... EVERYTHING IS AROUND $30 OR UNDER!

I feel pretty good about this, I learned a lot about how NOT to do things while running DBB.  I have figured out a way where I am mostly hands off, so I still have the time to serve my family which is my first priority.

I don't have child items in just yet, but here is a sampling of what you might find

2. Poor Baby A was sick Tuesday night.  My little Adeline is not a tough girl... it was miserable for all involved.  I think she just had a little cold, that she has now passed to me and Gracie.  We will all be in pajamas all weekend long.

3. Before I had Adeline, I was certain both of my kids would always nap at the same time.  I don't know what kind of alternate universe I was living in, but that is rarely the case.  This is a Sunday afternoon scene.  GG rarely makes it though lunch without passing out

and Adeline is all smiles and ready to play

4.  I finally decorate for fall.  I scaled it back quite a bit this year since our house is on the market.  I didn't want it to look over cluttered.  In fact, I scaled back the entire house.  Our shed in the backyard is filled to the top with boxes and bags of stuff to sell in a garage sale!  I might just donate it all because I really don't want to mess with a garage sale.  We will see!  I didn't get a pic of the decor, but here is what I was left with after throwing out 75% of the rest.

5.  It's Friday, Fall TV is back on, and I can finally start making soups every other night again.  Can I get an AMEN!?!

Have a fabulous weekend! Linking here


  1. Your girls are adorable, even if they don't nap at the same time. :)

  2. I didn't realize the Southern Stitch was yours! I'm heading over to Facebook to like it now. Congrats!!

  3. It's true, when you have 2 it's hard to get them to sleep at the same time! Good luck on the house sale, and yay for fall and more soup nights! :)

  4. How fun!! Best of luck with the Southern Stitch!
