Backyard Tea Party

(Let's ignore the fact that I haven't blogged in weeks ok? I'm busy. lol)

And when I'm lacking ambition of my own I turn to my sisters.....
This sister of mine.  She is so stinking cute.  Her baby just turned 3 and she had the absolute cutest little birthday party/photo shoot in the backyard.
I'm not going to post pictures of just how adorable the actual child is (because sadly my talented sister stopped publicly blogging because of creeps on the internet stealing her kids pictures. gross)  But I can share a few shots of her tea party!

 The lanterns and banner are from Target!  It also helps that she has the perfect spot under this tree!

 yo-yos are our favorite!

Happy Birthday Baby Girl!!!

If you've been reading this blog for any amount of time you will know that my heart lays in Grenada.
I spent two {incredibly fast} years there living and loving the people and that precious island.
I want more than anything to go back!
And there is a contest going on right now that you can help me win a free ticket and hotel!!!

Discover Grenada and Caribbean Airlines are  giving away two trips and I want my friend Amber and I to be the winners and you can help!

I know you get bombarded with stuff like this, trust me I understand.... but I'm not asking for money I'm just {begging} asking for you to take 5 seconds out of your day to click on this link and vote for me!


It would mean so so so much to me and I will be forever grateful and you will basically make me the happiest girl on earth. 
and if you're really nice you could tell your friends to vote for me too...

I need 800 votes.... and I've been averaging about 400 page views per day so that would be totally do-able, right?! yes! have faith!!! we can start a movement. a send Kelsey and Amber to Grenada movement!! join me!


ps. I was totally going to do a giveaway or something to spur on votes... but I found out that was illegal. dang.

{Traditional} Patriotic Themed Decor

My sister Molly  (my other sister, not Amanda who's house I've shared before) just moved into a new home and her traditional, Americana style is perfect for 4th of July!
She has allowed me to share her beautiful abode with the world, so thanks Molly!

A Birthday Wall!  Such a cute idea!  Every year she's had the girls' picture taken with their age and now they're arranged beautifully in a collage wall.  Which we all know I love love love collage walls.

 Aren't the doors and the woodwork in this house incredible?? and love those stairs! they will per perfect at Christmastime!
 These are the stairs that lead to the attic, she pulled them down and displaying the  vintage toys they have collected - brilliant!

How are you celebrating your independence (my American and Canadian friends) this week?? I'm heading HOME to Ohio in a few days!! For a few days filled with family, friends, fireworks, and hopefully lots and lots of watermelon :)
