we are a few days a way from the beginning of the "ber" months and even though we are far from experiencing fall here in texas with it's extremely hot and humid weather, i can't help but post a few fall inspiration images that even made me wistfully yearn and long for it's arrival.
for now, i will content myself with the abundance of for-the-love-of-fall boards in pinterest!
HAPPY TUESDAY, friends!

a lemonade party is a perfect theme for a summer soiree and that's exactly how sweet baby lanie celebrated her first birthday ~ a lemonade stand-themed party!
lanie's mommy samantha and her friend stephanie creatively collaborated to host this adorable party. i simply love all the yellow lovely details they put together such as the lemonade stand, a monogram front door wreath, lemon fruit-filled glass containers and my favorite ~ the ribbon-adorned dessert table.
the cutest birthday girl in a ruffled outfit her talented mommy samantha made for her!
charming sweet details of burlap and ribbon tied to glass vessels are just darling!
pom ribbons, striped straws and assorted fabrics add pizzazz to the mason jars!
the ruffled cake, lemon bars and cakepops looks delicious!
i LOVE that they added a variety of yellow ribbons on the plain white tablecloth!
check out more photos of this sweet lemonade birthday party over at stephanie's blog, who was so kind enough in allowing me to share! thank you and great job ladies!

if you have mentioned my blog recently and i have missed it, please comment here and let me know ~ thank you ever so kindly!
now for my favorite activity, online shopping ~ i have recently done back to school shopping for aston but i couldn't help but do my own e-shopping even if i've since long graduated from college, lol. i got me an adorable personalized erin condren life planner and i am eyeing those new notepads kelly debuted on her WH Hostess site the other day! the designs are sooo pretty, i am having a hard time picking out one favorite!
you can order your custom life planner here
|here's mine in multi-color stripes and i LOVE it|
i also had fun recently completing an iron-on project of personalized tshirts for aston to wear the first week of school. with new teachers and possibly new classmates, it's hard enough remembering their names.
and lastly, last week i had a blast meeting up with Dawn of not just a mommy!. we met up at dylan's candy bar in the galleria and just chatted all morning. it was a delight to finally meet her and her family including her sister who just opened her cupcake place, kaleidoscope cupcakes. check out my death grip on the cupcakes she brought me! thank you, they were delicious!
i'm hoping your tuesday is off to a great start!
