Home Tour Dining Room

I must say we spend a lot of time in this room. Todd, Carson, and I are in this room for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! It is one of my favorite rooms in the house, not because the way I have it decorated (believe I have some things I am ready to change), but because we spend so much time in here as a family. This is the one room in my home that has some investment pieces of furniture. The china cabinet was a gift from my grandfather for my wedding , being I am the only girl in my family he couldn't tell me no. We bought this at an antique store and the date on the back is sometime in the 1840s and its real mahogany wood :) The table on the other hand is also real mahogany wood, but it was a steal I mean a real steal. Todd and I got this baby off of craigslist for $250.00!!!!!!! Poor couple said it was her great great grandmothers, they just didn't know what they had! Lucky for us we did! My changes for this room are new lighting, new artwork, and new fabric for my chairs! Cant wait to see all of your dining rooms!

Hugs and Kisses

Over the next couple of weeks I am going to share some pictures we had made of Carson doing his favorite things. Today are hugs and kisses :) He is just the most lovable little boy, and he loves to give big hugs and even bigger kisses!

Little Donkey

Yep! That's right a little donkey he will be!!! Carson is just in love with all the donkeys on his Poppas farm, so it just seemed fit for him to be one! We tried in on this morning for laughs, and boy did we have some :) So what are you guys dressing your little ones up as this year?

Should the fan go or stay??

Help?? I cant decide should I leave the fan, or should I do a lovely chandelier ??

Happy Birthday Logan!!

Happy Birthday sweet Logan! To say Carson and you are smitten with each other would be an understatement. We feel so lucky to live to two houses down from you and your awesome parents. It is hard to believe that when we all became friend neither one of you little stinkers were here ha! Now that you guys are it makes us so happy and makes our friendship even stronger! Logan you are such  sweet girl Happy 2nd birthday!

Love for a white nursery!

I feel the need to start this post off by saying I in no way shape or form want another baby, but this nursery makes me weak in the knees. Honestly it makes me want to give the hubs the boot to the (unfinished) garage, and set this beauty up in its place with no baby ha!

Happy Birthday my Love........

I could not have asked God for a better man, husband, father, and friend. Yes I really mean this sometimes I have to ask myself is this man really this perfect. Now I know he is not really perfect, but he is pretty darn close in my book. Todd you are so patient, giving, and just outright sweet! You have a heart so big, and you love your family. You have all you priorities straight and this to me my friend is sexy. Yes I said sexy, there is just something about watching Todd work so hard for our family and at the end of the day putting Carson and I first, and then to top it off always wanting to know if I need a helping hand. I love you more than words can describe, and cant wait to have a nice date with you tonight!

Living room tour upstairs and downstairs

Here is the place we spend most of our evenings! This is our upstairs living room, and I love it! It is right around the corner from Carsons playroom so it's nice to be able to watch TV while he plays in his area.
This is downstairs, and honestly we don't spend much time here at all! I am pretty OCD about no toys downstairs, so the boys would rather play outside or upstairs! When I say boys I referring to Todd, Carson and Rocky ha!

Hope you enjoyed a little peak in our living rooms, cant wait to see yours :)

PS If you double click the pics will get much larger! Don't know why they are so small!

Healthy Boy!

Carson had his 18 months Dr. apt. today! Yes he is 20 months, yes I am a slacker, and yes we both hate the doctor and shots!! I was a little nervous about this appointment, you see the only thing my child eats is fruit and the occasional PB&J. He is a little thing. personally I don't mind him being tiny I think he looks more like a baby and I get to put him in bubbles a little longer ha! But everything checked out just fine. He weighs 23 lbs (10%) his head and length are both in the (50%) too! Now on the other hand the Dr. office was no fun I had to watch as they pricked my babies finger after he so nicely pointed it out there to the nurse, and then 10 minutes later two shots in the leg :( Needless to say we both left with tears, next time daddy is coming with us!

Lighting projects

Would Love to see this beauty hanging above my antique mahogany dinning room table!This one above our breakfast table :)
and this rustic pretty hanging in the foyer when you enter our home!

So as many of you know I love to decorate! I think that lighting is one of the most important things when making a room look great! Too bad lighting is so darn expensive and a pain in the rear to install! With that being said I have found some Lighting that I really love, and love as in I would love to purchase them real soon and have hubbs put them up for me :)

Tailgaiting with friends!

Our friend Marshall could not be with us this tailgating so we made sure her head was hehe! You better come visit soon Carson says he misses Aunt Marsh!

This past weekend Todd and I headed to Columbia to watch the USC/Georgia game! We had our sweet babysitter Courtney come to watch Carson overnight, so we could spend some times with our friends. Todd and I both had a great time, and itwas so nice to sleep in on Sunday morning!

Cha Cha Change.........

lots of changes are happening around the Hewitt house! very good changes at that :) First the biggest change is our eating style. Todd and I decided that it would be a good idea for me to hire a nutritionist to help me get where I wanted to be weight wise and health wise. As many of you know I have been personal training now for a little over a year, and while I have gained muscle, I cant seem to get the fat off! So Leslie(the nutritionist) and I have met three times and yesterday was grocery store and recipe day :) I fixed my first real fresh healthy meal last night for dinner, and I have to admit it felt great. Another change is that Carson will be going to MMO Mon, wed, and Friday. This is going to be huge for me, because when I pick him up at 1:00 he is down for the count until around 4:00! This gives me a 6 hour break three days a week whoo hooo!! I plan on training 3 days a week and doing cardio 5 days a week. I am really excited about this lifestyle change Todd and I have decided to make, I feel good about being able to make homemade dinners for my family every night and having some ME time during the day. so here is to new beginnings!

Ready for School................

Carsons first day of school aka MMO was today! I was a complete ball of nerves, not because it was his first day but because we couldn't take his beloved lovey and paci. But.............. he did great, of course he screamed bloody murder when I dropped him off, but they said he calmed right down and played great the rest of the day. Made me one proud mama to hear this. I was so disappointed when I read that he had to wear shoes and socks everyday, I am totally a sandal girl when it comes to boys in their Jon Jon's, but how cute are these Keds on him :) I am so not a tennis shoe girl when it comes to babies so Keds where the only option and I think they are sooo cute on him ;)
