A New Adventure


The wedding is behind us and the baby is here.  Louis Jackson was born on November 9th, 2012.  He is now 5 months old and life seems to be flying by.  I am so busy with this new baby boy and 2 big girls.  I have decided I’d like to share my adventures in parenting with all of you. I will reflect on all things from diapers to pre-teen dating.  Sounds scary, doesn’t it?!   I hope you will follow me on this amazing adventure.  Stay tuned as I work behind the scenes on my new blog Little Larks {A Children’s Lifestyle Blog}.  Follow Little Larks on twitter for updates and launch details.



for a little “mommy”

This room was by a sweet little girl I know that just loves her babies.  She is already a great little mommy.  I think one of my favorite aspects is the doll in a suitcase.

New Guest Book & Event Design

I went on a vintage prop hunt the other day and found several cool things.

I hit the jack pot at a local Vintage Thrift Store called the Retro Room.  I found these cigar boxes and instantly thought… New Guest Book idea.

Then I created one of these

I found a few more things that I used to style these guest book tables.

You can find more of these ideas and products on my website.

Baby Shower Guest Book Giveaway is still going on here.

Nursery Ideas

As some of you may know, we are expecting a little boy in November. We are also “expecting” a new house in November. We are having a house built and it is due to be ready at the end of November. I am not thrilled that we will not be able to have our little guy’s room ready for his arrival but I will certainly be prepared.
I have been collecting lots of ideas on the internet and saving them on my pinterest board just for babies. Here are some of my favorite finds so far.

I want to create a room that is not too “baby”. Something fun and simple for him to grow into. I am pretty set on the grey, navy and white for the color scheme. My husband is a big baseball fan. Actually he is a big Yankees fan. So we will definitely incorporate some baseball decor.

Menu Inspiration

I don’t know about you but one of my favorite things about attending any kind of party is the food.  Another is the little details.  I have been working on menus for 2 different weddings.  Both for friends of ours so that makes it especially fun!

Here are a few ideas I found that I am quite fond of….

Thinking of doing something similar?  I found this amazing site 3 Potato 4.  They are located in Philadelphia, PA  and sell most of there vintage finds online.  Here are a couple of things I found that would be perfect for a party.
