Shepherd's Hut

My newest obsession! I first found out about Shepherd's Hut's on The Londoner. It is a very British idea and I love it! I have not found a place in the U.S. with these wonderful beauties yet. A Shepherd's Hut is a sweet and comfy way to camp but not in a tent. I enjoy camping in tents but these wonderful huts would be a dream to stay in, add some s'mores and we would have a party! 

Wriggly Tin is in the U.K. and they have the most wonderful, cute and delicious huts! 
the next four pictures were taken by The Londoner




Aren't they dreamy! 


The Shepherds Hut Retreat  is also located in the U.K. but they also have some beautiful hut's with lakeside views! 




I would love one day to bring this stylish style of camping to the U.S.!

Tulsa Aquarium

                             

                          

                             


                                      

                                      


Tulsa, Oklahoma!
My aunt and cousin live in Tulsa and my little baby cousin turned two this weekend. We decided to pack an overnight bag and head out west. We stopped on route 66 for my cousins train themed birthday and made a pit stop at Los Cabos for a Mexican lunch then headed to the aquarium.

The aquarium is quite impressive. They hold the worlds largest amount of man eating sharks. The bull sharks were very impressive as they passed above you in a class tunnel shaped room. Their new exhibit includes a sea turtle! The one shown above, it was large and in charge. I had never seen a sea turtle in real life. All I could think of is Jack Sparrow lassoing this thing and getting off an island in the Caribbean. They had so many other things to offer but I think the sea turtle takes the prize. Grace of course slept the whole time...ahhh the baby life. 

If you are in the Tulsa area I would recommend stopping and having a look!

Little Sister

My little sister got married this weekend! I can't believe she is all grown up and now starting a new life with her husband. Mr. Collins is a great guy and we really like him, I know they are going to have a great marriage. I am a little jealous because they are on a cruise right now, but I bet they are having the time of their lives! 

Update on Grace: She is growing like a weed but still seems small to me sometimes. She is the sweetest baby. She rocked this weekend with my sisters wedding. My wonderful friend Megan came down to visit and was my life saver! She took care of Grace during the wedding and helped out my family with getting the wedding set up. 
She is holding her head up a little and those fingers are in her mouth constantly. She is blowing bubbles and sleeping through the night! She still likes her car seat and often goes to sleep in the car. She is my little darling!



 My mama, Grace and myself

This is what I love about my sister! She is goofy and I love that about her

We had a long night but my baby finally got to sleep. I think she is going to be my little socialite!
