Sunday Social 11/18/12

Sunday Social

This week the Sunday Social is really special.  We are supposed to share what we are most thankful for.  There are so many times that I get caught up in my day to day routine, that I forget to take a step back and look at how blessed I am.  I find that I stress myself out about things that don't even matter.  I also have found that spending time with the ones you love will make all the difference.  

I'm so glad that I have someone who supports me and is there for me no matter what.  Skip and I have been together practically forever, and he always makes me feel so special...

My rock

I'm also so thankful for my sweet babies, Chandler and Jake.  They keep me so busy but I wouldn't have it any other way.  It's amazing how your life can change in 2 1/2 years.  I don't even remember what I used to do with all my free time before they came along!  I'm also so glad that they are so close in age.  They have so much fun together and are already best friends!

Chandler (2 years)

Jake (9 months)

My brother and I have always been close.  I'm so glad to have him in my life.  He is always there with a sarcastic comment that can put any situation into perspective.  Being the big sister, I don't feel bad about putting him in his place from time to time. :)

Kenny and me

I have the best girl friends that anyone could ask for.  No matter what, they are there.  It's so awesome to have these wonderful women in my corner.  I cherish all the great times we've spent together over the years.

Gilded Home

If you're like me, you get antsy when things in the house have been the same for a little too long.  I'm looking to start redecorating my living room, and am so excited about a lot of the pretty things I've seen so far to decorate with.  I'm loving all of the gold accents that are everywhere!  Here are some of my favorite finds!


I am absolutely in love with this gold console table!  It is perfect in every way!

Sweaters to Die For!

Thank goodness we're finally getting some cool, okay, cold weather around here!  I will take what I can get even if we've gone from shorts and sundresses to frost and cold, windy nights.  It means I can get out all my fun winter things that have been packed away for far too long!  I think I'm most excited to get out the really cool sweaters that I've been watching since mid-June.  Anything goes with these pieces.   Whether it's a geometric pattern or Aztec design, the colors are great and very inspiring during a season that can get bogged down with the blacks, grays, and blues.   

Here are a few of my favorites!  I hope you enjoy these as much as I have!  

What is your favorite winter item this year?


P.S. This week I'm linking up with the wonderful Shanna of Because Shanna Said So for her fun weekly posts called "Random Wednesday"  Please be sure to go check her and all the other lovely blogs that participated this week out!  You won't be sorry!

Palmolive Fresh Infusions

I can start this off by saying, that I despise dirty dishes.  When I was given the opportunity to try the fabulous new line of dish washing liquids by Palmolive compliments of Influenster, I couldn't have been happier.  The Palmolive Fresh Infusions are not only pleasant to use, but the design is great too.  I don't mind leaving them out by my kitchen sink.  I have to say that of the three scents, the Ginger White Tea is my favorite.  I shared the Lemon Thyme with my mom, and she loved it.  I'm keeping the Lime Basil for myself, because my husband said that it was his favorite scent.  The fact that they are available at Target, and it gives my just one more reason to go there, doesn't really hurt my feelings either!  They are under $3, and totally worth it!  

Here's a picture of the lovely bottles that I received!  Please go out to Target or Walmart and buy a couple of bottles, and I promise you won't regret it!  



Holiday Party Looks

If this piece from Michael Kors doesn't say timeless, I don't know what does!  

The special limited edition "Paris" watch is up for grabs over at Glossy Blonde , one of my favorite reads!  She asked us to share how we would style this Rose Gold beauty, and I was inspired to create two fun holiday looks that would highlight this fabulous addition to your arm party!
