Wow, hi blog friends!! I can't even begin to tell you how much I've missed the blogworld.  So much has happened since the last time we met on A Glass Act

We welcomed a baby girl to our family.  Our lil shih tzu, Lilly P. Dineen
We said goodbye to old friends
My first fur baby, Patterson Kitty Dineen
The late and great Lilly Pulitzer
And we welcomed new friends
(More pics and posts to come of great friends so no one is left behind!)
We said goodbye to our first home (my fixer upper) and became landlords
Our First Home
And moved into our favorite neighborhood in an old Chevy Chase home (don't worry, this house still has a lot of projects that need to be done!)
The door opened for bigger and better opportunities for Brian as he left the public accounting world and accepted a job at the Blue Grass Community Foundation
Oh, and I almost forgot...
16 Week Ultrasound
Exactly 40 Weeks pregnant and the day before Owen's arrival
I became a mother...
7 pounds, 14 ounces, 20 inches
Our First Family Pic
And we became a family of 3 (well 5 including the fur babies)
Brian and I welcomed our first son, Owen Brooks Dineen, on October 1, 2012
And life has been super crazy amazing ever since
I hope you'll join me (again) on my never ending quest for fun, family, friends, Lilly, monograms, organization, cleaning, party planning, decorating, thrifting, DIYing, saving & earning pennies all while being a full time working new mommy. Oh and there will be tons of cute baby pics along the way. I've certainly been motivated by reading other peoples blogs and hope you find something here to jump start you in the right direction! Enjoy!

Joy D.
