a father's day reveal

hi y'all! i was just looking back at my calendar and i can't believe i haven't posted in over two weeks! what is wrong with me?!?! well, here i am. back at it. and i have something really cool and sweet and lovely to share. a little something that the boys + i put together for mr. re-nest for father's day 2014.

father's day is so tough for me. mr. re-nest basically gets whatever he wants for himself at any time throughout the year. tools. no go. he has everything. car stuff. nope (basically because it wouldn't be a surprise because i know nothing about anything that he wants.) so, where do i go to? clothes. yep. boring clothes. but he does get kind of stoked about going out shopping and having it all about him (he won't admit that but i know he secretly does!)

so, friday night of father's day weekend, we packed up the kids, tons of food, lots of toys, plenty of apple juice, the stroller and we took off for the outlet mall. (we have a pretty dang awesome outlet mall up in these parts...the only thing is that if you have kids or no patience, it doesn't serve you well to go on a weekend.) it was a shopping spree for mr. re-nest. (note: one thing i've learned with kids. trying things on no longer occurs with kids. you just buy. and you return. i apologize to the stores i buy from for being the serial returner.) and, i'm happy to say that i think he had a pretty good time. it was all about him which i think he liked. (okay, i confess, i might have picked up a few things in there for me too...but it was all about him!)

sunday was the day that the boys + i got to give him his handmade, special gift, which was my fave part. y'all know we have a special dates piece in our great room, that mr. re-nest got for our wedding anniversary four years ago. well, it didn't include little mr. re-nest #2's birthday, and we couldn't have that.

the new special dates wall art. in it's home on the gallery wall.
and, the big reveal....the new special dates wall art for our living room! featuring all of our family's important dates that got us to where we are. it makes me smile seeing it on our wall. and little mr. re-nest #1 was so, so very excited to give this to daddy (note: he art directed the piece. i just did the execution.)

in fact, this new design has been added to the re-nest studio etsy store...i actually really like the reversed out feel of the white overlay on the dark grey and the more modern feel of the type!

hope you had a lovely father's day celebrating the special guys in your life! 

xoxo,
ashley
