my poor little birthday girl . . .

today my little shrimp is 3 . . . and my poor little (big) girl is sick. i think she is starting to feel better today, but this isn't exactly how i imagined her 3rd birthday to be. i can't believe she is 3 already . . . it seems like yesterday she surprised us with her whopping 4lb 12 oz self! 3 years later she might still be a little shrimp . . . but her energy and love (and sassy-ness) is bigger than life itself!

i have some fun pictures i will post of her princess tea party . . . that was so fun . . . when things get back to normal around here!

sneak peek no. 4 . . .

i'm getting this custom crib set ready to ship out to the anxious mommy!

aaahhh . . . peace and quiet!

i have the whole house . . . yes that's right the whole house . . . to myself! sean has taken off with all 3 of the girls to go to his sister's house for a crawfish boil. and you are probably wondering what i am going to do for the entire day by myself? well . . . i am going to lock myself in my office (not really lock because there isn't even a door) and sew and embroider (i'm so excited about my new embroidery machine!) until i can't sew and embroider any more!

not loving the caterpillars . . .

1. how many stinging caterpillars do you see?, 2. we don't like these!, 3. caterpillar sting

i thought sean was losing his mind a few years ago when he told me there were a such thing as stinging caterpillars. didn't take long for me to believe him when i saw a buck moth caterpillar for the first time. they are quite scary looking!

well . . . buck moth caterpillars love live oaks. and lucky us . . . we have a huge live oak right next to our driveway. so the past 3 weeks or so our driveway . . . our house . . . our sidewalk . . . have been covered with the little lovelies.

and about 3 weeks ago . . . my little shrimp was walking down the steps on the deck and there was one on the front of one of the wood steps that she didn't see. the whole caterpillar touched her leg and left a complete outline of his ugly little body. the picture of her leg above . . . that was yesterday! still looks pretty bad 3 weeks after she was stung! so needless to say . . . we don't like buck moth caterpillars. and there is a lot of screaming and super fast running when we see one!

loving our summer time temps . . .
