Angel + Amy

I got to hang out with Angel for a bit before Amy and I headed over to the National Geographic Endangered Species exhibit. I was surprised at how chill she was, but when Amy pulled out the treats, she was a ball of energy. Amy says she guesstimates Angel's age somewhere between 12-15 years old. This cutie sure hides her age well!!

Quite possibly the best way to spend the weekend

A few weekends ago, my co-worker Kate invited us to spend the weekend at her parent's amazing vacation home on Gibson Island (off the Chesapeake Bay). We arrived 9am and headed for the dock where Kate & Mike had already started crabbing. Even though the crabs seemed to be in short supply, the experience was SO fun! What a great day...perfect weather, crabbing on the dock, lounging around the house and doing a whole lot of relaxing.

A Tiny Twist on Tiger Shoes

I'm going to be co-hosting a baby shower for my cousin this month! My co-host came up with a fabulous idea to incorporate chinese details like baby tiger shoes. I think in chinese culture, these shoes represent strength, bravery and, of course, good fortune. Well, after searching all over the web, I didn't see any products that were cute or cuddly. So......CRAFT TIME!! I found instructions for these super simple felt shoes from Martha, added a touch of adorableness and voila!
