Gorgeous yet Random Day!!

It is a beautiful and very cold day in south Alabama today! I decided to blog before I go for a mid-day run. I can't stand running, I've always just been a fast paced walker...but I decided this year, I would try to do some running. We'll see how that turns out!

This post is a little short and a little random and involves random thoughts and information, but at least there's pics :)

One thing that I wanted to do this new year, was to become closer to God. I have always grown up in a christian family and had a wonderful church home to attend. But now is the time in my life where I feel as if I need to know HIM a little bit better. I need his encouragement and his word more than ever. Jen over at The Francis Family recommended a devotional book that she read with friends before she was married. It seemed like just what I needed, so I went and bought it and plan to start with Chapter 1 today. I did some shopping and bought some Brighton beads for my Bauble LuLu bracelet. (alot like Pandora). I LOVE pink and bling, so needless to say that these were perfect!

I also bought an silver OWL spacer too! I have recently become obsessed with owls..they have to be cute and friendly owls though :)

Here's my bracelet so far and here's my owl spacer. I haven't put him on yet! (Sorry the picture is a little blurry)What do you girls think? Do any of you have a Pandora, Troll, Chamilia, Brighton, or Bauble LuLu bracelet? Do you like yours?

At Hissyfits Boutique, where I work, we sell the Bauble LuLu bracelets and beads. It was one of our MOST popular Christmas items! It's a good reward system for young children too! We have parents that bought their child a bracelet and one starter bead and each week if they do good in school, they get to come on Friday and pick out a bead.

There are two things in this post that I have mentioned that I love: PINK, and OWLS! There's also something else I just LOVE....CUPCAKES! I love to eat cupcakes, I love to make them, I just love anything with cupcakes on them. I even have some adorable dishware that has cupcakes on it that I use for birthdays that I bought from TJMAXX. I will show pics of those the end of January because I will use them for momma's birthday! Here are some cupcakes that we had last year for my birthday! My momma ordered my cupcake pics from Bugandboo from Etsy. They have my monogram and a birthday message!

I hope everyone has a blessed Sunday and a FABULOUS week!

  10. Hi!

    Just came across your blog and had to comment since I am originally from your "neck of the woods"...yep, grew up about 20 mins from a little spot just outside of Abbeville called Edwin! :) This is where I had my tea room before we moved overseas. After a 3 yr stop in VA we are now in Huntsville. And, yes, I love cupcakes, PINK, and have the Brighton bracelet. :) Always happy to meet another SOUTHERN girl in blogland! :) Would love for you to stop by my blog sometime (you'll find lots of PINK there and in my shoppe!) sure to say Hi if you do! :)

    Have a "tealightful" day!
