Getting a Jump Start on the Holidays!

I know some of you may think its a tad too early to be thinking about the holidays, or maybe I am just plain crazy...but I think its better to be ahead of the game than fall hopelessly behind.

I love the holiday season and I love having more time to spend enjoying it rather than worrying if my cards are done, the gifts are bought and the menu is planned.

I love sending photo cards for the holidays and I love receiving them as well.

I am a loyal customer to I have used them for my holiday cards, birthday notes and several photo books. I have never been disappointed and I love the wonderful selection they offer.

This year I was thrilled to see the new selections for holiday cards.

I think my favorite is the Merry Bright ZigZag.

I love the pop of colors and the youthfulness it lends. It truly represents our crazy, fun family!

It is also a pretty neutral holiday greeting which fits our family well. Not too holiday-ish.

I like that it is simple and to the point without being flashy.

I also love the “What Fun” card.

I am just loving the rainbow color over the black and white photo.

Now, I may decide to go a little more “formal” and I do think the “Tree all Aglow” is so pretty with a black and white photo.

{can you guess we will probably be using a black and white photo?}

I usually do one of just the boys, but I love the way this family photo looks.

Really, there are so many beautiful and fun cards to choose from. I am certain you can find one that suits your family’s personality.

Well, Hello October!!

My how time has flown!
I can't believe we are almost halfway through
October, which happens to be my favorite month!!

So, I thought I would share some things I am loving right now.

Popped into the mall quickly last night and was thrilled to find
these on sale:

We are big fans of Pottery Barn Kids.
I have several sets of their utensils and they last forever.
These were their Halloween collection, which happens to match
my everyday decor.
So at $3.99 they were coming home with me.
Wish they made an adult version!

Next stop Anthropologie!

My bangs have grown out and this unseasonably humid
weather is not helping my hair!

I splurged on these:

Although, not exactly all the same colors though.
Then I stocked up on these because they were on sale and
I happen to LOVE them:

They are yummy smelling and tasting.

JCrew had an extra 30% off sale items...

This "September Sweater" came home with me.
Not sure how I feel about it.
{think a diet is in order now!}
I shall make it work.

I did spot this baby:

and this one...

Both now added to my "wish" list.

If you are a mascara freak like me,
you must try out this mascara by
Hard Candy:

"Curl up and Dye"
It is awesome. I love it. You can get it at Walmart.
It just ROCKS!

Oh, since I am sharing loves...

I am totally crushing on these Fryes:

I love all my frye boots and I have one pair of loafers.
I am praying these go on sale and are really comfy.

So, that is my little list.

Hope you all enjoy a fabulous fall weekend!!
