It's Friday, I'm in Love!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Ours was great, filled with friends and family, laughter, and good food.

I was so thankful for all the beautiful presents I received. My family knows me too well! Instead of my usual love list, these are just a few of my favorites from what I received! Love it all so much! Pretty sure gold was the theme for me this year!

1- Essie nail polish "penny talk"
2- heart graphic sweatshirt
3- gold 2013 monthly planner
4- gold "Vianca" tuxedo flats
5- polka dot flannel pjs (reminds me of Kate Spade; IG famous lol)
6- swan graphic jersey sweatshirt

(All from Target! My favorite store!)

7- my big present was from the mister. He searched everywhere for this Michael Kors chain link watch. I'm in love with it!

8- faux leather front panel pants
9- yellow crystal bracelet from the Loft
10- tiny frenchie ring by Verameat! Obsessed would be an understatement!
11- delicate heart necklace
12- three spikes necklace
13- 'Marco' tortoise sunglasses from TOMS
14- neon elastic bracelet (11, 12, and 14 are all from alimonada)
15- bow bracelet from Jessica Simpson

I'm one lucky girl for sure. Not only was I spoiled, I loved seeing the excited expressions on everyone else's faces opening their presents!

Were you spoiled? What was your favorite gift? I love seeing and hearing what everyone received!

Happy Friday! Hope everyone gets to enjoy a long weekend! We are visiting family and friends in Virginia. Looking forward to spending quality time with our loved ones!!!

What I Wore Wednesday {wiww}

The last few days have been a whirlwind. I had an awesome Christmas (more details/pics in another post). We are in the way to visit family and friends in Virginia so I thought I would put up a quick post for this week's wiww.

Wanted a pop of color in my outfit so I added a neon pink tank. I adore this Chanel-inspired cardigan.

Tank and cardigan: Target/ pants: New York and Company/ shoes: Ross/ necklace: EllandEmm, Forever 21/ bracelets: Stella and Dot

I haven't worn this dress in a long time it comes with a matching khaki belt but I thought I would switch it up and add a fun animal print belt. I look like I'm about to lead a safari tour lol!

Dress: Sarah Jessica Parker's Bitten line/ belt: Kohl's/ necklace and spikey bracelet: Stella and Dot/ pave chain bracelet: Ily Couture/ boots: Macy's

I received this cardigan for Christmas last year and its one of my favorites. I love the patches in the elbows and the color is perfect for this season.

Cardigan: Target/ blouse: TJ Maxx/ necklace: Forever 21/ jeans: Kohl's/ shoes: Bandalino

I was pretty excited to find this sweater at Kohl's over the holidays! There was a similar one at Forever 21 that had a mustache and french wording graphic I wanted but was sold out everywhere. The sweater goes so well with my ily bracelet and Audrey necklace.

Sweater: Kohl's/ maxi skirt: JCPenny/ shoes: Ross/ bracelet: Ily Couture/ necklace: EllandEmm

It's Friday, I'm in Love!

Last Friday before Christmas! I can't believe how fast it's come this year!

Have you been naughty or nice?

Shopping online, I've come across some items I'd like to add to my Christmas list!

1. Monogrammed sweaters from Old Navy. They only have select initials but they have both of mine!

2. casual black booties from Target. Love the tassels!

3. Vicious dog tee from joa + closet. I think this shirt is too funny! We owned a Rottweiler and he was the opposite of vicious! Also loved how they dressed this tee up!

4. I love the colors in this plaid scarf from the Gap!

5. I don't have a thing for foxes but I do have a thing for fun socks! These are adorable also from the the Gap!

6. Just the fox, ma'am sweater from Modcloth. I've been a sucker for all the animal graphics on sweaters!

Would any of these make you list?

Welcome Baby!

I just love when good things happen to people I love! My best friend, Heather, and her husband welcomed their first born baby boy this afternoon!

In the midst of all this sorrow and mourning with last week's events, God still delivers miracles! Such sweet sweet gifts are babies and I couldn't be happier for the Cleverly's!

Happy Birthday Leo Alexander Cleverly!

Can't wait to meet him!!!

Hello there! It's Wednesday and that means I'm linking up with Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy.

Necklace: Charming Charlie's / chambray shirt and sweater: Target/ pants: New York & Company/ Shoes: New Directions at Belk

Colored jeans are another one of my favorite trends too! I am slowly collecting all colors :) You can't see it too well here but these are a plum color.

I would like to introduce you to Audrey. She's the diamond beauty hanging on my neck! I recently blogged about this on my Friday love list. Check it out here.

I won this baby on an Instagram contest! Thanks @shoplemode!

Now deets on the rest>> sweater and jeans : Kohl's/ boots: Target/ necklace: EllandEmm/ bracelet: Le Mode Accessories

I'm a sucker for polka dots and I love this shirt. Good for layering or worn by itself!

Splash of red in my shoes to complete the outfit!

Lily Turns One!

This past week Lily turned one! Oh my, where did the time go? I remember the day she was born as vividly as if it happened yesterday.

It's been fun seeing her personality unfold, she's so different from her sister! She is feisty and very determined. She is playful and mischievous. I love the look she gives when she knows she's doing something naughty. Hard to get mad at that face! Her cheeks are always asking to be sniffed or kissed!

She says a few words but she understands a lot already. She loves anything musical and loves to dance and clap her hands. She's walking now and gets into everything! I love her sloppy kisses and her snorts when you make her laugh! She loves to be chased and always wants to play with her big sister!

Noah had to go on a business trip on her birthday (boo) but I took the day off so we could spend it doing something fun. The day started with story time at the library. Patty always takes them every week and Ava really looks forward to it so we went. Then we went to visit Santa. Bass Pro always offer free photos with Santa. Ava didn't want to go near Santa but I managed to get Lily to sit with him!

Then we took them to Chuck E Cheese for lunch. The only time I'll ever go here is if its the middle of the day on a weekday while kids are still in school. It was nice. We had the whole place to ourselves. We got home and all of us took naps :) It was nice.

This past Sunday we celebrated with our family over lunch and cake. Here are some of my favorites:

Hello Monday!

Hello everyone! I think especially with last Friday's tragedy I'm going to take this Monday to reflect...

I can't fathom the emotions going through the families that lost loved ones but I pray that time and faith heal their broken hearts.

I've had a heavy heart about this all weekend. As a leave my babies this morning to go to work, I am incredibly thankful for every second I have with them!

Hello God. I pray for all people affected by this horrible event. During this time we always have questions of why, and where, and how you could allow this to happen. But I will find comfort in the knowledge that you know all things and have a plan for everyone.

Hello forgiveness. I know it's a hard thing to feel at this time for most, but the weight lifted from forgiving is powerful.

Hello to being thankful. Every day is not promised to us and I am incredibly blessed for everything and everyone in my life.

Hello to the little things.

Hello love. Love will prevail.

Hello family. Noah's brother and sister are visiting for the holidays and festivities start on Friday. I love this time of year and I can't wait for quality time with the ones I hold dear to me.

Linked up with Lisa for today's hellos!

What are you saying hello to this week?

It's Friday, I'm in Love!

The latest on my want list!

1. This mint sweater from Old Navy looks so comfy!

2. Loving the vibrant color of this soft knit infinity scarf from The Loft!

3. I've been on the search for some cobalt suede heels and these are on sale from The Limited! I want them so badly!

4. I can't get enough of polka dots and this make-up pouch could double as a tablet case! And it's $4.80 from Forever 21!

5. I really like the fair isle print lately and I want a cozy cardigan just like this one from Old Navy!

Would any of these make your wish list???

Ten on Ten

Instead of 10 photos every tenth of the month like I should be doing, I'm giving you a sneak peek into the 10 things I've got going on in my head today!

1. Strawberry limeades and sonic chewy ice are yummy!

2. It doesn't feel like Christmas is in a couple of weeks because its almost 80 degrees here :/

3. Can't believe my Lily turns one on Wednesday! Where does the time go?!

4. So excited Lily is off formula and will be graduating to a big girl car seat! Carrying her in a baby seat has been killing my arms! And that formula was expensive!

5. Every time I come home feeling accomplished from Christmas shopping I realize I'm only partially done with everyone and get disappointed I can't cross off anyone off the list :/

6. Glad I only work 4 days this week! I'm taking off Wednesday to spend a fun day with the birthday girl!

7. My best friend is having her baby boy any day now and I can't wait! So happy for Heather and Mark! I remember all those emotions of that big moment when life was no longer going to be the same and how my whole heart filled with joy!

8. I need to get a moving on wrapping presents!

9. Christmas carols are on full rotation on the ride home from work!

10. I need suggestions on how to repel my baby from her fascination with pulling all the ornaments off my tree!!!! She thinks its a game! Not good!
