Hello Love!
13 years ago I graduated from collage and honestly, I can't remember most of it! 😂 Not because I was partying or any of that but because I was busting my butt to finish (Hello, wedding bells!). I had went to a community college for 2 years and transferred to Lee University the fall of 2002. I took a full 18 hours every semester and a few summer courses to finish my Bachelor's degree in two years.  I graduated in 2004 with a major in Business Administration and a minor in Bible and was just classes shy of a major in Computer Information Systems...man, I should have finished that.  I worked two jobs while in school too but my full-time focus was my now-husband, because you know, love. 💕
I took my kiddos on a walk around this beautiful campus yesterday and I can't believe how beautiful it is. Where did you attend college and what was your major?

Sunday Favorites

Hello Love!
Happy Sunday to you all!
Last week I started a weekly post called Sunday Favorites and this week I have a whole new batch of goodies to share with you.
First up is my new favorite of the week: Peanut Butter Oreos. This is NOT a sponsored post for Oreos, I just love them with my whole heart.  I found this pack of amazingness at my local CVS the other day and how could I not try them? Peanut Butter and Chocolate is the best food combination ever made and these cookies were everything I hoped they would be.  Knowing I was going to share them in this post I had to go and get another pack because I couldn't use one that was already opened, right?  RIGHT!  I went to Target since it's a lot closer to my house AND THEY DIDN'T HAVE THEM?! What? Why?  I don't know!  They weren't even an option!  I drove across town, back to CVS and there they were.  Only two packs left....we left with both. YUM!
Next up is our new Danny Gokey cd.  Mr. Gokey holds a special place in my heart because I associate one of his songs with my Mawmaw who passed last year.  There's another time and place for that story so I'll move on.  We bought his last cd a while ago and he recently released this album.  My whole family loves him and three of us are going to see him in concert in October! He's coming to a town close to us and we can't wait to go see him live!  Check him out on iTunes.  My favorite song of his? "More than you think I am" from his Hope in Front of Me cd.
Next is my Lipsense lip color from my friend Kelly at KissesbyKel c/o. I had never tried Lipsense before so she sent me this little care package of the color, gloss, "oops" remover, and makeup bag for me to try.  Guys, I'm in LOVE! I've shared it a few times on my InstaStory and I can't get enough of it.  I picked the color "sheer berry" and I can't wait to try more colors.  The color stays on all day long, which I love!  My lips are naturally pale so I love that I don't have to keep reapplying the color, just the gloss to keep them shiny and hydrated. Wanna try it?  Find her here!
Lastly is my newest gem in my JORD watch collection. I mean, really.  It is gorgeous!  I love the type of wood used for it.  It has a great marbled look with dark and light colors that make it really stand out.  Everyone will comment on it because how often do you see a wood watch?  The navy is a great color to transition into fall and winter, not that I'm rushing that AT ALL, but it's just so great.
Have you tried any of this weeks favorites?
Let me know in the comments below!

And I'm off!

Hello Love!
The Target girls isle has struck again and this time it was this perfect little shirt dress from the Cat & Jack collection.  It was front and center in the new display and.i.had.to.have.it.  The colors are so perfect and my girls were very jealous that they were already sold out in their sizes.
On Monday I'm off to AmericasMart in Atlanta to go shopping for my mom's Hallmark store.  If you've never heard of AmericasMart, it's where retail shop owners go and buy all their product.  It consists of three buildings in downtown Atlanta that's floor after floor of showrooms that you go and see all the new products for the upcoming seasons.  Each building consists of 15+ floors each with approx. 20+ showrooms on each floor.  IT'S THE BEST!
The only downfall, most of the products are order only and you can't buy it on-the-spot.  There are a few places though that are a cash-and-carry so we'll definitely be hitting those booths.
Make sure you're following me on Instagram because I'll be catching up with a lot of my favorite companies like The Home T, Haley and the Hound, Swig, Gretchen Scott Designs, Scout bags, and Sloane Ranger!
