I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with Family & Friends.
I’m thankful for all the military men and women that protect our freedom.
On Memorial Day, I always think of the brave soldiers that have lost their lives
for our country.
I also can’t help but think of dear family and friends that have gone before us.
Enjoy your weekend!

Please welcome the lovely and talented Pam from Simple Details.
She is here to show us the wonderful party that she had for one
of her besties. I love the way that she celebrated her friendship.
I hope you have a chance to visit her blog and let her know how much
you enjoyed her guest post.
from a birthday party for a girlfriend.
simply, a pretty party.... for a pretty friend
At each place setting was a wrapped, personalized favor,
chosen specifically for that guest!
Table decor included glass and crystal candlesticks, rose petals and rhinestones.
I love the eclectic look of using a collection of wine glasses.
It's easy to pick one up whenever you see something you like, here are a few of mine.
My stylish friend set her handbag on the table.
A fun tribute to our girlfriend, 'What we love about Andrea," on my chalkboard.

Last night I just wanted a simple meal to prepare.
1. A package of Mexican Cheese Blend
2. Plain Wraps
3. Fresh Tomato
After I prepared the fresh tomato, I portioned out the tomato and cheese and then I let my daughter
sprinkle the cheese and tomato on the wrap before I placed it in the oven.
Here it is after cooking at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
I served it with low fat sour cream and she loved it!
Mommy was craving pizza!
1. Mozzarella Cheese
2. Ready made sauce (I make my own sauce when I’m make chicken parmesan, lasagna, meatballs)
3. Plain wraps (whole grain would be a healthier choice )
4. Oregano or Italian Seasoning
I sprinkled on the cheese….and then added some more. :)
Here it is….
I usually put the Oregano or Italian seasoning in with the sauce before I put the cheese on
but sometime’s I forget so I just put it on top. You can also grill these!
What do you serve (besides take-out) when you want to keep meal prep simple?

Please welcome back my friend Colleen from So Much To Say. She is here to give us a tour of her lovely home that I'm sure that you will all enjoy! Please visit her blog she has great posts on crafts, decorating, party-planning, photography, and organization.
Hi South Shore Mommy readers!!!
A little about me . . . . . I'm a mom of two and wife to my husband of almost ten years. I spend my days working full-time as a lawyer which I love. When I am not at work, you can find me with my two beautiful kids beside me. I always have some project in the works in my house whether it's something big like my son's big boy room found here or a gallery wall. I love photography, party-planning, coffee, lists, organizing, wine and decorating. I also love trying different crafts with my little ones. I love to read blogs although admittedly they fill my head with ideas and crafts that I
I'm here today to share my home tour. I am a huge fan of home tours in blogs and often find alot of inspiration. Here we go . . . . we bought our home in 2007. I fell in love with this house the first time I saw it. My husband needed a little more convincing than just my undying love!! It took some time but it was finally ours after a couple of months. There are so many things I love about our home so come on in . . .
In our house we have a formal dining room and living room. We love to host and entertain at the holidays so we do use these rooms on those occasions. oh, new chandelier is up just don't have new picture. oops!
This is our family room where we spend most of our time. This was one of the things that really appealed to me about our home. I loved that I could be in the kitchen and watch my little ones play in the very next room.
Heading upstairs to the second level . . . .
Our master bedroom is in line for some changes this week. We had some water damage from an ice dam so this room will be updated with new paint and new carpet and I have new bedding too. (there's an adorable nook to the left of this area - our room is actually quite big - I just did not take a picture as there is quite the mess going on right now!!) I am planning to get a chaise and a little table and think it will be a really nice relaxing area in our room.
Our little guy's room is next. I had so much fun decorating this room. Bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids and it's pretty complete but for blinds and some odds and ends.
My sweet girl's room . . . . ahh I love it in here. The colors were carried from her nursery colors which were largely pink and sage. I used much of the same decor when she got the "big girl" look. It's the perfect little princess room.
Heading down into the basement is the next part of our tour. We finished this area about three years ago and the kids love it! There's a playroom on the first side and a family room/bar on the other side.
Can you tell I love baskets? I definitely love organized spaces (although this space typically is not so organized!!). See my "real house tour here"
Oh, just so you know the playroom NEVER LOOKS LIKE the above. In fact, I took a shot as I headed into my office recently. Here it is in its current state:
I kid you not.
I hope you enjoyed the glimpse into our home and hope you'll come on over to visit!!
Thank you to South Shore Mommy for having me!
