Beach Bum Edens Bouquet and a Dear Lillie Giveaway!!


So, I decided to go to the beach yesterday to get the kids out of the house and to take pics of Paris wearing one of my new summer headbands. Boy, was that a mistake!! It was one of the HOTTEST days this year!! You would think we were in the middle of August, not June!!! I think it got to 103 and that's NOT including the heat index!!:( So here are some pics of our very hot {and short} trip to the beach:)

For those of you who don't know, I was a winner to one of the giveaways that Edens Bouquet  has going on all of this week!! Yippeee!! I was so excited! Before I even knew I was the winner I started thinking about what I would make, ya know incase I won! Click here for their Saturday giveaway going on right now! Here is the headband featured below:)

The headband is made with a muslin wrapped headband and large muslin flower with vintage inspired croquet lace and a conch shell in the center. A vintage rose button is in the center of the sky blue silk dupioni flower and a small shell button is in the center of the silk cream flower. You can go here to purchase. I only have enough materials to make 2 of these so get it while you can!!

I LOVE living near the beach! You just can't go wrong taking pictures there!

Here are my babies enjoying the somewhat cool water {not really}. The water was actually quite warm and offering very little relief.

My "Prince" charming!:) LOVE him!!

Jenni from Dear Lillie is doing another fabulous giveaway!! You can go here to find out how you can enter to win her Annabel tank! I've been wanting one of these for a while now!! I spend every dime on the kids but it would be really nice to get something for me!!:) It is especially hard to look cute in this crazy summer heat!! Goodness! I would totally pair this with a cute pair of jeans and heels with pearls or even with a skirt and sandals. I've got my eye on some black patent leather thong sandals that would be FAB with this tank!!!

  9. Hello,
    Thank you for leaving me such a sweet comment on my blog.
    I wanted to share with you the color of my living room wall. It is called Gray Pearl made up in their Valspar Signature Paints. It is a Martha Stewart color, even though they don't carry the Martha Stewart colors anymore, they should still have it in the computer.
    Thank you again, for taking the time to stop by my blog and leave me such a kind comment.
    You have a beautiful blog!!
