The "House Guest Book"

So, the other day I was stuck at the car dealership (with all 3 girls) getting the car serviced and I managed to flip through a few magazines (yes... I did say I was there with all 3 girls AND I read a magazine... miracle I know)... but that's besides the point, anyway, I was perusing my latest Southern Living and came across their "Secrets to Southern Charm" section and was immediately intrigued!

Now I'm a Jersey girl... nothing southern about that, right? BUT I spent 5 years at Clemson in South Carolina (totally Southern) and I've always considered myself to be a southern girl at heart so I jumped right in.

It was a very good list and I actually did some of them already (have a signature drink at parties) BUT one got me excited and I decided right then and there that I was going to do it. That was #203... "Revive the House Guest Book". I LOVE this idea! What a perfect way to remember visits both large and small; from playdates with one of two buddies to our annual Christmas Cocktail party. Genius. Really. And I knew exactly where to put it; my hubby's Great Uncles antique desk that sits in our front hall that hubby and my dad refinished.

Pretty, huh? ALSO, I was even MORE excited because I thought this was the perfect tradition to start with our new home since we just moved in. So off I ran to Target to look for the MooreBabies new house guest book... but I didn't quite find one that I wanted; the ones at Target were more practical than pretty enough to sit on a gorgeous antique desk.

So I ran to Barnes and Noble and SUCESS!

I did have to sort of back-fill since I just bought it and we've had people over already but I am super excited to have a record of all gatherings hosted at our house!
