what I wore wednesday

This Fourth of July we will be spending it at Salt Fork State Park.
So, I will be watching the fireworks at a campground.
Therefore, I thought it would be fun to do a wiww on camping and the fourth!


This is what I wear camping.
We go fishing and swimming; we cookout.
What are you doing for the Holiday weekend?
Will you be wearing your red, white and blue?

Ollie's birthday party

Saturday Ollie turned seven. Sunday was his birthday party.
His theme was monster trucks, because well, that's what he wanted.
He asked for Chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing.

he asked for party hats and balloons.
He got those too!

Bone shaker was on top of his cupcakes and he tried to pull it off before we lit the candles, it messed the seven up a little.

The big present that Ollie asked for was marbles, I am not kidding that is what my boy wanted and that is what he got. He also got remote control Grave Digger, a book filled with Thomas stories, a Razor scooter,  a pool, and more.

Ollie had a happy birthday party!
I can't believe my little guy is seven years old.
Happy Birthday Ollie, I love you!!!

wiww and Gussy inspiration together

I missed wiww yesterday and thought I would combine the two today.
yesterday my husband and I went to a Cincinnati Reds game.
Even though this is not what I wore, {I wore a Reds t shirt and my favorite pair of worn jeans and flip flops} this would be a great outfit to wear.


wiww by bethcp14 featuring a striped tote

and over at Gussy Sews, today's inspiration is "spend the day playing"

what better way to spend the day playing then going to a baseball game?
here are a couple of pictures I took yesterday. ( sorry they are so dark, it was over cast).

Game of Thrones

Has anyone else been watching Game of Thrones on HBO?
The first season ended Sunday night.
The series is based on a series of books by George R.R. Martin.
Not ready to wait a whole year for season two, I am planing on picking up the books and reading!

new place settings!

Last week I got new dishes.
I love them, I think that they are my favorite dishes ever!
They are exactly what I pictured.

I already love using them.

food actually looks better on them!

and I am not going to lie to you, I found them at the Dollar Tree, and they were exactly what I wanted!

style crush {Emerson Made}

By now, I am pretty sure that you have at least heard of Emerson and Emerson Made.
In fact I have already mentioned her here and here.

I felt compelled to share Emerson's beautiful, classic style.

Every photograph seen here is from the Emerson Made website.

Emerson and her husband Ryan left New Your City to move to a gorgeous farm. Here, with her husband they started her company.
quoted from Emerson Made:
 "EmersonMade is a company that believes in celebrating the uniqueness of the individual, the joy of being alive and all the smallness that makes up the Big Beautiful."
I am drooling over her EM Original Bluebells
her beautiful Indigo Blue shirt

her classic white shirts

how cute is that?

she also has other cute tees

I love this one

Oh, there is also gorgeous blouses

and gold coin necklaces

soo cool!

and of course her signature flower pins

What do you think, gorgeous and classic, right?


life rearranged

Since I missed last week, I'll include a couple of photos from both weeks.

what I wore Wednesday

Its raining. In fact I did not even make it home from my walk today without getting wet.
So, as much as it has rained this Spring, I thought it would be fitting to do a wiww rain addition.
