sleep, stars & stripes, and a splashin' good deal!

First things first. Guess who FINALLY slept through the night????!!!! Yes, 8p-7a and it "only" took 12 months. HA HA HA He was in such a good mood this morning when we went to get him from his crib. And then he was like, "Hurry up and get me...someone's playing with my toys!" Oh my, those chubby cheeks - I could just eat him up!!! And for the record, there is nothing cuter than a baby boy in those cute little boy short pajamas, chubby belly poking out - swoon! Here's to hoping for a repeat performance tonight so I can sleep instead of checking on my Hudson boy every 30 minutes :)

I have to show you my 30 minute impromptu 4th of July table decorations. I just gathered a bunch of stuff I already had on hand and tried to create a little vignette that didn't take up too much table space. Little bit crazy but let's just call it Americana Chic, alright? Sounds so much better already. The little details...

There's that sweet handprint flag again and what says 4th of July more than Pop Rocks... limited edition at that! Then there's that favorite vintage plate again, this time with a cute photo of my baby boy and a mini flag I fashioned out of scraps. I almost finished it by adding a mini Uncle Sam top hat to Hudson's photo (from the cupcake toppers) but resisted. Thank goodness. Some of the sweet vintage linens... Who knew the cupcake holder had so many good functions...cupcakes...artwork drying rack...linen display...hmm, wonder what I can use it for next? ;) And while the handprint flags wait to be turned into a garland, they look cute propped up on the back of the display. I sure like adding aqua blue to the traditional red, white & blue, don't you?

And finally, a good GREAT deal I just had to share with you! Yesterday, while browsing the aisles at TJ Maxx, I found this adorable Polo tankini for the little pumpkin to wear next Summer. Isn't it sweet??? I love those polka dots! And the best part...it was only $7.99!
Woo hoo! I love a great deal!

Super cute table! Love to use what I already have! Makes it more fun. Love the swimsuit. I am sucker for polka dots too.
And yea for your Hudson sleeping through the night! Mine were all breast fed and didn't sleep all night until I stopped, at well over a year! But I didn't mind.

Love that swimsuit!!! If you happen to come across a 3t...get me one :) I will have to check my TJMaxx but was jsut there the other day and didn't see one, but I didn't dig :)

Yea for Hudson! It is so nice to get a good night's sleep...one reason I have been having a hard time when thinking about having another little one.
